I read about half of the Wildcard series, but he switched publishers and I can't find the rest. Was emailing him back and forth for a while. Nice guy.

Hey everyone, it's been a while since i posted anything on here. i thought i would check it out again. see what's been going on.

I have read three books in the last 2 months. I'm proud of myself. HAHA i haven't read any books for like the longest time.

I have read the Icewind dale trilogy books, The Crystal Shard, Streams of Silver and The Halfling's Gem and now i begin Homeland. I love these books, they are awesome.

I started reading the daVinci's code, but i was in middle of switiching books with a co-worker and decided i would just keep reading the forgotten realms stories first. Eventually i will get back to reality and read something a little more not so fantasy-like.

Hey Regina....at 4 mins 27 secs into this video..........I don't understand why they would show The Queens Own Rifles if they are talking about The Regina Rifles....but you would know better than I.

Has anyone else here bought / read Bathroom Readers? Now thats some good shit to read :lol:

   



SwampoO @ Sun Sep 04, 2005 5:23 pm

yeah those books really help the push. I love the little useless tidbits at the bottom of every page.

Hmm, not much of a fan of the futuristic sci-fi, so I've managed to start two other books since I posted that... not too far into it either.

I started reading Angels and Demons (it all it's cliff hanging, conspiratorial splendor) while I was at the cottage this weekend, and I also picked up something interesting I found in the bookshelf: Company of Adventurers, by Peter Newman. It's a history of the HBC, and I figured I could use a brushing up on my Canadian history.

So, CC, is Snow Crash worth getting back to?

I was reading Car Craft magazine. I wanted to Pro Street Mrs SprCForr's Olds, but she wouldn't let me. :cry:

So, I started reading Hot Rod magazine again. Now I want to supercharge her Olds! I can get a real great deal on some 871 Blowers. I just gotta figure out how to:

A. Get the V6 out and a V8 in,
B. Convert it to rear wheel drive,
C. Install the blower,
D. Cut a hole in the hood, and
E. Not bring any attention to myself.
F. Oh yeah, and do it in a weekend.

Hmmm...I'm gonna need a plan...

Maybe see if Chip Foose is available?

Chip and a wheel barrow full of cash are the stumbling blocks right now. :D

That is one talented guy!

There wasn't allot of film footage that survived the landings on D-Day so many of the Allies use that footage. The Canadians (QOR) happen to have the best know footage of the day. There is another shot that is commonly seen that has four soldier coming up the beach from the water where two are cut down. I was told that it could possible be that of the Regina's, but I can't confirm that other than the fact a man who was there told me.
One of the guys I've met in that video clip (@2:57) is Tommy "Chief" Settee who was apparently quite a boxer in his day. Tommy Prince and him were cousins.
So to answer your question......there isn't a whole lot of video to go around and it's considered generic stock film. Here's another odd thing about Juno beach. The Winnipeg Rifles have their monument on the Regina's landing beach....and it's a big one. The Winnipeg Rifles landed west of there, across the river. [?]
