    So... am I the only one? I highly doubt it. There is no way in heck that I'm the only Newfie (and I mean that it all it's glory) on the boards. I refuse to believe it. So, if there are any others, please stand up. Please stand up.

    That would be neato to be the only one.... almost a symbol of our iscolated we seem to be and in fact are in Newfoundland.

    Actually... I know there are two others on here living in Newfoundland. I practically forced my roomates to join the SHH boards. Trying to pass on my addiction to others ya know? That was only this week though. I'm wondering if there are any others.

    I think so as well. If you're wondering; white represens the snow and ice, Blue represens the sea, Red represens human effort and Gold is our cofidence in ourselves.

    The other half of our province Labrador (which is actually like 3 times the size of Newfoundland) has it's own flag too.

    This unofficial flag features a spruce twig, and the three sprigs are said to be symbolic of Labrador's people; the Inuit, Innu and European settlers. The white stripe represents winter snows; the blue stripe represents the rivers and lakes, and the green stripe represents the forests.

    Cool eh?

    Why yes it does... in a Care Bear kinda way. I almost moved to T Dot last year. I was only there once before and I loved every minute of it. I was plannin on propelling my career a little further by doing so but now I plan to move to Vancouver instead. Try the other side of the Country ya know?

    Wow. I never thought the Newfoundland flag would give that reaction. I guess it's because it's just so familiar to me.

    Did anyone see Shipping News? There's a lot of Newfoundland hype in that movie. You could almost play "spot the Newfie flag" if you wanted too.

    Oh... if you love the Flag, you should see the Province. Just beautiful!

    I keep wondering why everyone thinks the flag is neat. I wonder if it's because it's Red White and Blue and you americans are connecting with that... provided those who commented are american.

    For those who are wondering where Newfoundland is... here's some directions. First, here's a map of Canada.

    Actually, in this map, you can see both where I currently reside and the place where I was born; St. John's and Churchill Falls respectivly. Weird to see Churchill there actually...

    Here's a map of Newfoundland and Labrador which is located at the very most eastern tip of the above shown country (and North America for that matter)

    Gotta love a good Newfie joke. The best thing about them are the fact that they were mostly all made up by Newfies.

    You were here before Sandman? When? What for?

    Great Big Sea are okay. They're a bit saturated in this province now. I mean, they were NF's first big thing really. They've been super exposed to all of us here in efforts to expose themselves everywhere. I happy for all there success though.
