    Where in Canada do your friends live?

    Hi - One in Montreal and three in places I cannot recall.

    They told me years ago and I mean years ago, we only communicate
    by email - they are not well known, I remember I had never heard of
    the places before. One is coming across to see me in July.

    Next time I contact them I'll ask again - they will think I'm bonkers.

    My apologies to our Canadian cousins for this rude interlude, can anyone come along and watch?

    Of course - not too sure of the format yet.

    If they give me a camera to interview the players then I'll do
    something crazy for utube.

    Last email I got from Canandian friend was they were snowed in.

    Also one lives in remote spot and has a 40 mile round trip to
    collect groceries.
