Since the beginning of the Age of GG's Unresponsiveness (about 48 hours ago), CG's forum size (judged by # of posts) has increased by about 30%.  Wow.  

One more shout out to the CG staff for welcoming us!

In other news, happy Columbus Day / Canada Day.

You know, that's one thing that hit me when I moved to the US from Canada.  We always remove shoes in Canada.  Here in NC, nobody does... just walk on in.  I remember one of the first homes I went to down here, I took off my shoes at the front door... the guy laughed and asked me if I was from Canada.   Tongue

Feh.

I stopped by the Post Office on the way home from work today intending to send off my latest half.com sale.  Of course - what was I thinking?  Columbus Day    :roll:

Who the hell came up with this Columbus day stuff?  Most of us don't get the day off, but God forbid we try to mail something or do some banking.

With all the hoo-hah I forgot all about Columbus Day. So in honor of the occasion - a little Randy Newman:



The Great Nations of Europe had gathered on the shore
They'd conquered what was behind them and now they wanted more
So they looked to the mighty ocean and took to the Western sea
The great nations of Europe in the 16th century

Hide your wives and daughters, hide the groceries too
The great nations of Europe comin through

The Grand Canary Islands first land to which they came
They slaughtered all the canaries there which gave the land its name
There were natives there called Guanches, Guanches by the score
Bullets, disease,  the Portugese, they weren't there any more

Now they're gone, they're gone, they're really gone
You never seen anyone so gone
There's pictures in a museum, some lines written in a book
But you won't find a live one, no matter where you look

Hide your wives and daughters, hide the groceries too
The great nations of Europe comin through

Columbus sailed for India, found Salvador instead
He shook hands with some Indians,  and soon they all were dead
They got tb and typhoid and athletes foot, diptheria and the flu
'Scuse me great nations comin through

Balboa found the Pacific, and on the trail one day
He met some friendly Indians whom the Church told him were gay
Soooooooooooooo
He had them torn apart by dogs, on religious grounds they say
The great nations of Europe were quite holy in their way

Now they're gone, they're gone, they're really gone
You never seen anyone so gone
Some bones hidden in a canyon, some paintings in a cave
They're no use tryin to save them, there's nothin left to save

Hide your wives and daughters, hide your sons as well
With the great nations of Europe you never can tell

Now you and I are standing on the end of a century
Europes have sprung up everywhere, as any one can see
But there on the horizon is the possiblity
Some bug from out of Africa might come for you and me
Destroying everything in it's path,  from sea to shining sea
Like the great nations of Europe in the 16th century

You take your shoes off in my house or I'll have you forcibly removed.

MY dad always wears his shoes in the house.  He thinks it keeps his socks from getting extra dirty.
