    The London "Daily Mirror" March 31st 1980 Milestones of the month The month was notable for two most significant political events, and a rash of humungous natural and industrial disasters. The surprise event of March, was Pierre Trudeau blowing back in like a lion. The preceding minority Conservative government, under the luckless Joe Clark, had been struggling along for a few months, but they looked certain enough to stay put for five years, as the Liberals found themselves...

    The "San Diego Clarion" March 31st 1980 Padres' Spring Training by Al Terego There won't be many changes to the San Diego Padres' rosters, if the results of the Spring Training programme are anything to go by - not that any Padres' fan would wish for this, after the glorious 1979 season in which they played - the departed Mike Lum, and the injured Jerry Remy responsible for the only gaps in the line up, provisionally filled by the sparkling U.L. Washington at short stop, who...

    Hi Andrew,

    So sorry about the delay in replying, my "Private Messages" fails to give me a heads up when anything comes in, in fact, I stumbled upon your message, only when looking for one of my old posts.

    Co-incidence about your Swedish heritage...just a few minutes ago, I posted a reference to its high taxation rate (Ejections forum/("Why Dems shouldn't win")

    As for me, I was born in the U.K. - another highly-taxed country -migrated to Canada -even more highly taxed, yet! in 1964, retired to this 'ere Victoria in 1987.

    As I've mentioned, ad nauseum, I'm a PBP "Player-mode" (pitch-by-pitch) hound...you've
    probably seen our "Canajun Ehs" in action, frankly, I've gotta do all their hitting and pitching for them, otherwise they'd never win! As ball players, Canadians sure skate good!

    My rl faves are the Nationals; Jays; Marlins & Rays - the latter two, 'cos I used to Snowbird in Florida.

    Of course, I do my share of simming as witness the "Brooklyn Knights" in the Dynasty forum.

    I must look up your profile, in order to commiserate with you about your favourite team

    Till then

    All the best

    Hi Andrew,

    I'm flattered that you want to be friends with me...I'd be interested to know why...I think that we can learn much from each other because of - not in spite of - the age difference

    Feel free to ask any question that you care to - judging from your name, I'd say that you are of Scots heritage- am I right?

    Best wishes,
