Granville Island Lager? Geez, and here I thought that we in Quebec had bizarre beer names. Have a Maudite, or a Fin du Monde, for that truly armaggedon-like feeling. ( it packs a 9% content, not recommended on empty stomachs)
Anyhoo, welcome back.
Maudite and Fin du Monde? I haven't heard of them (or of GIL), but with names like that, I don't know how anyone could resist.
Regarding Quebec, I heard Jeff Fillion describe local French music (not the rock) as perfect music to listen to when committing suicide. I'm assuming he was referring to those slow ballads the French are so fond of.
Jason, on another thread, you mentioned you were doing some maps for a Napoleonic book and that it entailed new challenges. That left me to question what could be different from making a contemporary map (other than the location of buildings). After giving it some thought, I know that rivers can shift radically. When the Missouri shifted, part of Iowa ended up on the Nebraska side of the river (or visa versa, I no longer remember, but it's Carter Lake, Iowa, if you look on a map). I've also heard when the Red River shifts along the Texas-Okahoma border, some farmers end up paying for land they no longer own and can no longer farm, which I took to mean their deeds said they owned everything either south or north of the river, and when the river shifted, they ended up owning far less than they bargained for. On the History Channel, there was an episode on the Battle of Hastings (?) in 1066, and (don't ask me how), but they were able to determine that the English coast had changed radically over the past 1000 years. I guess that's a long-winded way of saying congratulations on landing the work, and I hope it all works out.
