 I tried to comment on your Canada piece, just wondered if you saw the show from Britain about the everyday Jane that became Prime Minister, I watched it on PBS (fictitious), yet good!

Regular people shouldn't allow anyone or thing to keep them from serving - if that's what they truly want.

People put their pants on one leg @ a time, eat & defecate etc., cut us we all bleed Red & I personally DISPISE other people claim that another is somehow a

"Minority" to Whom!?

I say to the two everyday Joe's go for it perhaps 'All' these people/Canadians could learn something from each other or @ the very least about each other that furthers their Humanity in the meantime or generally!

"I Confess."

I loved him in it, I think it was after the accident. Many of the classic actors viewed acting as a job & didn't feel like their Fans felt for them. Garfield & directors like Cappra didn't/don't get the Praise they deserve!

Montgomery Cliftbow to you & same to you Buzz

Buzz, don't know if you remember either Susan or Leotie that was on here before it changed, but thanks to Kavika, I made it back, and looking for the wonderful people I knew before.  Good to see you again!

The photo essay is very nice. 

I'm jealous.

Jealous because you're not here to see the magnificent sights that I can, or because I'm a better photographer? LOL

Put the video on before I remembered you can't see YouTube videos, so here is the audio.

Thanks for the sound-track. I've not heard that song before. Joni was a friend back in the 60s, before she got famous.

link 03/31/16 11:27:02AM @sichuan:

Hey Buzz,

I've been here before but I unsubscribed due to all the pathetic political hatred, bigotry and intolerance. I've since resubscribed under the name Sichuan. It's me; C.B. I'm not going to engage in any political or religious discussions this time around. I have no need to talk to those meatheads.

Anyway, it's nice to know that you've moved to Chengdu. I've been there many times, the first time to go to the U.S. Consulate in 2005 for my "single paper" so that I could marry my wife from Chongqing. I believe there's a new high speed train from Chongqing to Chengdu so the next time my wife and I go to Chongqing I'll contact you and perhaps we could meet. We'll probably go to China this August or September.

Of course I remember our previous correspondence - I'm really happy to have found you again. Yes, the fast train just started - costs only 96 rmb for the 2 hour train or 126 rmb for the 90 minute one.  When I was in Zhengzhou I found another Newsvine person (who after I did also switched to NewsTalkers). He was a New Yorker who was also married to a Chinese woman like us and lived in Kaifeng which was only an hour's bus ride away. We became friends as did our wives, and did many things together, like going to the Luoyang Peony Festival, stayed at each others' homes, etc.

I had to go to the Canadian Consulate in Chongqing to get my "single certificate" and I married Fen in December of 2008. I have a 3 year renewable residency visa due to my marriage but legally I should be living in Chongqing. My wife just spent the last 5 days in Chongqing for Ching Ming Jie, returning last night (although the holiday weekend just started yesterday).

Have you looked back in the archives of the Creative Arts group and the Discovery group to see my photo-essays of China? My wife and I enjoyed looking at your gallery - she never took me to those places because we were never in Chongqing more than we had to be for visa renewals.  Did you ever go to General Stilwell's residence and base of the Flying Tigers in Chongqing? It's quite possible that we will be moving to Chongqing next January. My wife wants to live in the Shapingba District.

The Home Page (Front Page of NewsTalkers) is totally full of political bullshit, so I prefer to venture among the groups yet I still do post articles that show up on the Home Page, but they get pushed off very quickly. I recently posted a photo article on the Creative Arts group of my favourite photos. Hope you get a chance to look at it.

I look forward to our meeting in August or September. I'm sure our wives will get along as well.

Buzz (which really is my nickname that I got when I was 4 years old)
