Oh Canada!! Just thought i would drop in and make a post to qualify for the BYOC pedal. I decided to do a personal tribute to our friends and allies in the great Nation of Canada. Heres some pics. Theres my Vintage Tudor Hockey game featuring the Leafs and the Canadians. Then theres four vintage 8 tracks. See if you can tell who the bands are. Lastly, theres the troll mountie. Am I off my rocker? You bet!

I've been to Texas (once), went to Austin for a conference. It was 110 degrees every day and sunny. Nice people down there, too. Great fried chicken.

well gereld...we could make you an honorary Canadian...just put the "eh" at the end of the sentence instead of at the beginning, like New Yorkers, and you`d fit right in. No perks or benefits to being one of us, just that when you go to Quebec and hear ...mange d`la merde...you know what it means.... and I`m from Montreal so no need for Quebecers here to take offence.
Let it be written.

There's a very important thing to understand about the use of "eh". Contrary to what most Americans think, it's not just a word tacked on to every second sentence. It's used at the end of certain sentences where you're looking for an acknowledgement from the person you're talking with. Such as:

"Cold out tonight, eh?"

"That's some great beer, eh?"

And not just tacked on to declarative sentences like:

"I'm going to leave in five minutes. EH."

"Could you iron my shirt? EH."

It's a very British thing, actually. I'm not sure if you've ever seen the BBC version of The Office, but "eh?" is used essentially the same way as the David Brent signature "yeah?".

yes if you over do the eh`s, folks will know you`re an imposter. Canuckistanis posting here would be a good place to start on the proper use of eh eh.

Do most Canadians talk like that? Most of the people I know including myself never use eh in our vernacular.

Imagine what it's like on GuitarsKazakhstan.com .....eh? One or 2 comedians and suddenly America knows all about your culture...:wave:

Gerald, you are among friends here :food-smiley-004:

the top right 8 track is BTO Head On....."looking Out for #1" on that one....but that year Leonard Cohen won the Juno for best vocal:tongue: (I'm probably off by a year or two).

Eight tracks, for those who are too young (or were/are too high:banana: ).....were the s^&* they were so great they sounded slightly better than mp3 but since the album was divided into 4, 2 tracks would fade out and restart. I still hear EZ Rider like that(Jimi).

I'll never forget the big clunking sound in our family car when Hotel California would hit the end of a track and change to the next one (mid song of course)... probably the reason they didn't stick around too long.
