Howdy again Russell R, and thanks so much for the Independence Day good wishes.
Nothing odd about an Englishman wishing a Yank good tidings, as most of us originated somewhere in that part of the world. My Mum was Scots/Irish and Dad was Swedish/Mongrel (insert chuckle here), my wife's family hails from Wales via Canada. When it comes right down to it, very few of us "Americans" sprouted out of the ground here and have affection for our "roots" as it were.
Really there are no hard feelings remaining about the Revolution anymore.
It is funny though that Canada's Birthday got so much response in the Chat Corner, and nothing about Independence Day.... and to think that we thought we were well liked! Another bubble burst. Your good tidings are heartfelt and appreciated.
If you get a notion, please consider enlisting in the Recording Section (Moderated by your friend Russell H), as talented folks with recording experience are always in demand and your knowledge would surely be an asset.
Keep in touch, and
