I am continually amazed at how universal our club is becoming. I just saw a member post from South Africa (SStiles)which is the first time I have seen a member from that continent. I know we have Australia, Scandanavia,British Isles and Ireland, Germany, France(?). Haven't seen a post from Asia or South America yet but that doesn't mean we don't have members from there. It would be nice to see how far flung we are.

Dear Ned Simms,

You left off the most important of all the countries that any of us could live in. I live in the Confederate States of America. We are presently occupied bya foreign power, The United States Of America. However, blessed by providence, we will yet rise again and once again take our place among the comminity of Nations......

Well my my my Mister Jefferson Davis . . . I note from a quick glance at your profile page that you haven't listed a country of residence there. I guess you citizens of conquered countries are a little sensitive in that regard--!

If I remember correctly, Hank is Texan. Myself, I'm a born and bred Tennessean living in Alabama and nope Hank - I got it right. We're both Americans living in the USA and we honor both USA and CSA veterans as Americans. The only South that is going to rise in the future is probably south of the border. However, I'll buy what you're saying for club purposes. I think that you'll have to write it in though because the chit for CSA appears to be in error.

Cpt Trommel, I extracted the list from everyone's profile on this forum. If you included your country of habitation in your profile then it shows below your name whenever you make a post and it is also available as a column in the Members Directory above. If you want to add Croatia then all that you have to do is to click on Profile in the top right corner of this forum and add it at the appropriate spot. Italy and Austria is the closest that I've come to Croatia but several of my friends drove to Greece from Italy and passed through it.

General Carroll, every one in this club is a celebrity - just ask us. We have had a Church Bishop in this club for a long time and don't think that he pulls any punches. I call him the Bishop With Balls and he's bruised mine up every time that I have played him. He's pulled out more than one victory from me simply by not fearing to meet his Maker.
