Horus:	Re wimpy-type Canadians...

	Geez I hope not...look at what happened when the subject of sex 
came up yesterday......mention the words birth control, and watch out!

	Incidentally, the mainland, I should have used a capital M for 
Mainland, refers to all the rest of Canada outside of the island of 
Newfoundland....including the 3 other Atlantic Canadian Provinces (Nova 
Scotia, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick). The Appalachian Mts 
aren't really present in those provinces; however they form the backbone 
of Newfoundland. Mainland is really a term of grudging affection......

	The American military had a big presence in Newfoundland during 
WW2, (before we joined Canada), and many US servicemen married women 
from Newfoundland. Hence, many Newfoundlanders don't see the American 
military as a foreign force the way Mainland Canadians do. 
	When traveling, I think nothing of striking up a conversation 
with a US Serviceperson.....but I've seen very strange reactions from 
others I've been with.....geeeeeee....

	Here's a map which shows a simple view of the Appalachians Mts. 
from about Pennsylvannia to the tip of Newfoundland (although the map 
itself is mostly concerning the geology of a part of western 

	Geological Survey of Canada Map 1678A
	(Humber Arm Allochthon)

	that should be enough to find it..

	Thanks for the weather reports Mark,
