Damn Turbine would not start!!! had Fuel, air, and spark!!! but it would fail on ignition !! Took the fuel line off as last resort and checked the orifice to the torch!!! put it back together and boom she fired off that time!!!!

When Rhino & Lisa were here, I was gonna take 'em down the road to Ft.Erie..but like I said to them,"We lost that one...nothing to see here." The U.S had taken the fort(other side of the river from Buffalo), & they retreated there after their defeat @ Battle of Lundy's Lane, which led to the siege of Ft.Erie. There again, after hard fighting (& big losses on our side) the U.S. abandon the fort, & crossed back over the river.(Guess we could have avoided this if Canada Customs had of done their job & refused them entry!

Ah well, they still do archeological digs in Ft.Erie, & every now & then another U.S. serviceman's remains are found. Big deal-pomp & circumstance as the bridge is closed down & the repatriation ceremony takes place. Gets tourists & commuters riled-up good for the huge delays..but maybe while they sit & fume...they can think about what 200 years of peace has brought, & just maybe while they are at it - they can pay a little respect for those that sacrificed .
Since that time, the U.S. hasn't fought a war without Canadians in the ranks to some degree. Plenty went Stateside to volunteer in every war. Funny that..makes one wonder...Naw-It'll give me a headache.

just sos ya know - we love our cajuns , they make excellent food , they are honest people , and they are americans thru-n-thru , not looking to develop, their own country in the middle of one that exists , just looking to exist in an established country that says your free , they been here long before the country was born , but bought into that notion of freedom to be who you are , i think WR will agree 

let me know if you don't , i'm always open to persuasion to change my opinion  ............but one day hope to share a beer [OR TWO-MAYBE MORE] and some crawdads on the grill ,

Plains of Abraham (Quebec City) went down in 1759.(Not long before U.S. war of Independence). The French lost (as usual). The British allowed the Acadians their language, traditions & freedom. But - they were to swear allegiance to the Crown, & keep the peace. Some wouldn't.France refused to take 'em back. So-the "trouble makers" were kicked out. Louisiana was still a French colony so that's where they went. Then...ALAKAPOOF! A whole new culture was born! Been workin well for quite a while now. [<:o)] (But-Cajun "French" aint French at all..They cant understand the French, & the French cant understand them! (During WWII they even called the Canadian French troops to try & translate..but they couldn't understand 'em either.This resulted in a name attached to them by the French, that was a derogatory term for a certain part of the female anatomy. That term evolved into what Rhino refers to as "Coonass". Just sayin...

Crawfish on the grill????  Never tried that...We boil them little suckers !!
As for Cooking... Ask Hoadie , I got him out of a bine when a bunch of his friends came out to the cabin to meet the Wife and I, Hoadie said we dont have enough food to feed every one !!!
I asked Hoadie how much of the Moose steak he had left over from the night before and if he had enough rice... and so I made him and his friends a Moose Gumbo!!!!  It was a hit! I had all his friends standing around me watching me make the roux for the Gumbo!! Made it on the BBQ Grill and it came out great!!
