And, not to be too-o pointy, but I'm Canadian, not American.
No need to apologise for being Canadian. But I thought you'd moved to California.
The UK is buying 150 JSFs, although issues about technology transfer with the US Government are holding this up. Don't get me started on defence equipment or I'd sound more boring than Lyon and his worms.
If you are in California you might want to meet up with Arron. You sound like you need some male company.
PS I'm not such a bad guy. Shayk and myself have sent each other presents across the Atlantic. Shayk can confirm this. I'd be happy to send you something - PM me your address (if you wish). It's only chocolates but they are nice ones. Same goes for you GWA.
