Well John, as luck would have it, I'm heading for Cleaveland in 3 weeks. If you are real nice, and buy me a NJ beer tomorrow night, I may just bring you back something!

Thank you for the picture. A picture is worth more than 1000 stories.

I wonder why GL felt close and dedicated the song to the ship. From listening to his songs, I know he has close relationship to the sea.

The Great Lakes Brewery is on West 25th St in Cleveland, right off of I-90, Its a great place to eat and of course try the Brews, my favorite is Dortmunder Gold, Yum! They sell a sample 6 or 12 pack where you get one of bottle of each, that may be the way to go! if I can give you anymore help let me know! I live about 1hr from there.

Chuck.

It sure does Gwen and I'd be mighty obliged if you actually live in Cleveland if you could acquire and send to me
a crate or two of "burning River Pale Ale" http://www.greatlakesbrewing.com/Brews/burning.cfm
that page refers to "English Pale Ale made in Burton-on-trent" this is undoubtedly a reference to the famous Bass Pale Ale first produced in 1777; its red triangle trademark was registered in 1876 as the world's first trademark
while you are at it you might as well include a case of the Edmund Fitzgerald porter please as described at http://www.greatlakesbrewing.com/Brews/edmund.cfm



Later-I have just realised that a worthy companion to Cleveland's Fitzgerald porter is a Yorkshire brewery's Lightfoot ale

I once found this on sale in my local English supermarket and still have the bottle labels as shown below but alas the very tasty brew was consumed a long time ago!!

Shame on you Norman you have obviously been far too busy painting your canoe Canary Yellow to find the time to read through the various postings on this topic and in particular my contribution above dated August 24th:-
OK it was exactly because Norman said he had pictures to put up here that I started a more-or-less successful topic called
"how to include a picture in your message"
on the parallel "small talk" forum a while ago:- http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=30144
I do not always succeed and have still not properly explored the Watchman's suggestion to try a geocities web site as a repository for pics that can then be simply linked from this forum so that they appear in all their glory here.

Strange Gwen I sent you an e-mail with my address and you must have received it because you replied commenting about my remark about somebody who might be/is living in a trailer
Are you OK??
