No offence meant. I always wanted to play this on mega-corps internal muzak, at US sites, just to see the reaction.

Kumquat, that was great.

(My father noticed that the history books he got in school on either side of the border had - different views :::cough::: - about various historical events)

Sorry that your capital ended all the way up that river. Kingston is a very pretty town

ta,

Since this thread seems to have been hijacked already...



I first heard this flying back to the states after being away for a long time in a very foreign place. I teared up.

Now, I have it with me and I listen to it every time I come home.
