K6LCS>> ... There was a Canadian gentleman there who said we should blame it on solar conditions ... (grin)
I have been contacted off list by a gentleman who thought I was insulting Canada/Canadians with the above line.
In no manner, shape, nor form did I mean to disrespect my neighbors to the North.
When I wrote that line, I was remembering the gentleman and his cool, red "Canada" hat ... and also the
marvelous stories he had as he worked the last Winter Olympics in that beautiful country.
I could have left the descriptive term, "Canadian," out of the sentence altogether. I wrote it just to give an
international flavor to the group that was there.
I cannot believe I am apologizing for THAT line ... But the gentleman who wrote me is a respected fellow
ham - so here it is.
