    Actually, I have had a sailboat in the marina at Lake Pleasant just northwest of Phoenix for years.

    White Sox? Aren't they the local field Hockey team?

    The one thing they do have in their favor are the two best TV Broadcasters in sports, Hawk Harrelson & Steve Stone (former Cubs Broadcaster with Harry Carey!)

    They've effectively destroyed their defense and special team in as many years. Yes, they are the Obama of the NFL.

    I might have to realign my loyalty to the AZ cardinals. (Chicago Cardinals when I was growing up).

    Just replied to this poll to hopefully get a few more of my fellow countrymen to subscribe, otherwise it looks as if the grand old US has won the war hands down.

    From the land where Collingwood planted all the Oak Trees so we could build fighting sailing ships of old.

    Anyone who has ever spent time in the Appalachians will know the truth of this - same with sections of Louisiana. I had the pleasure of traveling to many homes of friends during college and military years. It amazed me how different, culturally, places in the U.S. could be.

    I think we may have swapped locations! I now live in west Philadelphia (near the Schuylkill), and I grew up on the Miles River (feeding the Chesapeake). Small world!

    I live in Toowoomba which is 2,1/2 hours from Brisbane, it is located 1.000 feet above sea level. Which means we have colder winters (by Australian standards) but we do not get the humity they do all the way up from the Gold Coast to the Sunshine Coast. Which makes summer pleasent as we allways get a cooling wind.

    I live in the highlands of the Hudson River Valley -- about 90 miles north of New York City and 90 miles south of Albany, New York. The Iroquois name for the river translated as "the river that flows both ways" -- as it is a tidal river. Just south of where I live the river reaches its greatest width (3.5 miles) and greatest depth (175 feet). Near where I live the Hudson switches over from salt water to fresh water -- as such the valley is a bona fide fjord:

    Love that area. Visited West Point last fall and you can see the strategic implications of that location. Fort Montgomery is also an interesting spot. I just finished reading "Revolution on the Hudson" by George Daugan about the impact of the Hudson and NY in the AWI. My favorite book on the Hudson is Simon "Island at the Center of the World" by Russell Shorto about the Dutch in Manhattan and the Hudson Valley.

    It really is a lovely area in which to live. Glad you got to Fort Montgomery -- most folks miss it in their rush to get to West Point. If you come back, another interesting place to visit is the Stony Point battlefield a little further south. This is where General "Mad Anthony" Wayne had his men carry him at the head of the charge with sword raised after falling wounded while storming British positions.

    As you can see other than yourself none have ever posted.

    The actual Poll is way out of date as we now have over 240 members registered from the U.K.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.
