Also, on a side note....... I just noticed how "suggestive" the artwork is for both HMS Fortune & HMS Foxhound..... At least the one for HMS Foxhound is "tolerable".... Why does HMS Fortune have chains in her retrofit? O_o

Fortune:

Foxhound:

I'm aware Azur Lane isn't your game, it's just a bit of a shock to find they're quite "teaseful". I'm just reacting in general....... Foxhound seems like a better match for me though *shrugs*.

See you whenever I see more Canadians, or another game update, or a reply... I'm now left baffled.

It's Canada Day, so I have to post this. I have to because nobody else will.

---------------------------

Happy Canada Day! 

Happy Canada Day!

Just seeing something simple as this honestly goes a long way. Give recognition, even on the slightest, it'll mean a lot. I'm happy to see Azur Lane developers having gone out of their way to contact a Canadian Pixiv artist to have drawn HMS Fortune, HMS Foxhound, and maybe even Bulin in the mix. Can't ID the third one to the right. Choppy chop in a French-Canadian stereotype, something I can approve of. If they start doing cheesy Canadian stereotypes of being polite, THEN we'd have issues.

It's just heartwarming to see people pushing for HMCS Haida & her sisters to be added. I however wish people would also stop forgetting about HMCS Uganda & HMCS Ontario, both light cruisers on the Canadian side. Canadians who served on the two CLs loved them so much. HMCS Uganda fought in the Atlantic, Medideranian (or at least sailed through it), and Pacific. Americans told Canadians they couldn't have their Canadian identity so they had a mutiny (also because they were fighting the Japanese unwillingly), something which seems to be the case even today. Canadians. Been told "Canadians are a minor nation", something a certain someone here & elsewhere missed the point completely. It's not about balance, it's about being represented and connected. Then you have this tweet telling people what Canadian ships are hiding in Azur Lane.

(Below tweet: Focus is on Artimak's tweet noting what Canadian ships are hiding in Azur Lane given from the RN. Tried to single out the tweet, didn't work.

But yeah, Happy Canada Day! It's awesome seeing what sort of comments are under that tweet. Been trying to keep an eye out to see if Victory Belles developers would have done the same by releasing a simple tweet, or anything. Even SCS Software developers with a Canadian themed paint pack for American Truck Simulator, or something. Anything. Maybe the timing is off, maybe there's something other planned.... July 1st is always a good time to recognize the Canadians. It's always a nice breath of freshair when things aren't always about Americans. I honestly hope people don't treat me like a god damn circus act again just for desiring to connect with the Canadian side of things.

I still have some form of PTSD & grudges from the Discord nonsense we went though. I honestly want to forget about it, it's just hard because of how I was stupidly singled out. I'm still upset about that. I also saw people didn't want to give out genuine apologies. It was more of "saving face", something which adds more salt than it really should. I honestly want to forget about that moment, it's just hard. Probably wont' understand because you weren't on the receiving end of people's nonsense.  But hey, I'm just making note of that, not trying to stir up another storm. I'm simply making note of it. I'm only here to point out the awesomeness that is Canada Day and how Azur Lane gave recognition having hoped Victory Belles developers would have done "something" about it. Guess timing was off, or something. I don't know. I can't see into their office.  When Canadians become their own faction that shall be glorious (in this, Azur Lane, and any other game). There is one RTS game I could play, but that's on land, called 'Steel Division: Normandy 44. Victory at Sea was also awesome... I"m certain I mentioned it, just me re-mentioning it shows how awesome they are in certain ways :)

I also retrofited Foxhound on my English Azur Lane client (I play on both JP & En of Azur Lane because I screwed up) so that's a nice morale boost for me! Fortune is being leveled up. I can't wait to level up all the others which were noted by Artimak. 

So, yeah. Happy Canada Day!

Excellent! Happy to hear you guys had a nice read. Something simple like that goes a long way to the point I'm now hyped up again & proud to be Canadian again. Need more of that, thanks! :) Hope any lurking Canadians feel warm and fuzzy. They're out there, just need to be tuned into the right frequency. Just seeing that kind gesture made me so happy!~ Happy, just like that song.

Well, that actually went amusingly well from the looks of things. Haven't seen any mention of Canadians on the Azur Lane Subreddit which makes me sad. I kept refreshing every few hours just to see if anybody noticed it. Nope! Canadians are forgotten & overlooked, unless on Twitter & from myself. 

I had a nice laugh. I was about to get outright triggered to instead gain a nice chuckle. THIS TWEET nearly had me boiling.... Why? They were about to release USN skins for July 4th while missing an golden opportunity to give Foxhound & Fortune some Canadian themed skin in some manner. 

Instead, I'm seeing Americans being triggered so that has me laughing. Irony here, irony there..... Games have been known in adding festive aesthetics & appearances to make them semi-themed to what they're selling, yet not quite. Seen a lot of semi-false advertising on PSN stores that I'm somewhat immune to this. 

Someone PLEASE take advantage of the next July 1st..... I don't care who..... Azur Lane, Victory Belles,.... Maybe even the declining 'KanColle'.... This is fun to observe. 

----------

Also, Happy Independence Day! Be safe and use common sense when celebrating! Americans tend to be wild so do stay safe. :)

- Azur Lane - Maple Monarchy:
https://azurlane.koumakan.jp/Fortune/Quotes#English_Server

I'm sure people already knew this, just adding it anyways because of how neat it is. Fortune has a line mentioning Canadians as the 'Maple Monarchy' leaving things open for a Canadian faction to be added into the mix. It's not 100% confirmed, though it leaves things open for "if" and "when" the Azur Lane developers consider adding in 'mini-factions' into the mix. Someone also on the Azur Lane Subreddit made me aware of how one of the loading screens also contains Canadians in them, something which I embrassingly managed to be oblivious about. I overlooked it because everything is just "AMERICA!" which is awkward.

The image they shared is of American shipgirls enjoying Canada Day celebrations with the Canadian flag, the red maple on the red bra & hairclip, as well as the smaller Canadian flag on the bottom right. It's easy to miss when you're assuming everything to be 'America', and when the farthest right is cropped out removing the mini Canadian flag. This gesture alone is making me happy because of how the person took their time to make me aware of this, as well as seeing how Azur Lane developers are acknowledging Canadians. This is still a fanart, yet a neat one. 

Its the small things which goes a long way in making things feel far more welcoming. 

-----------------

I also made a subreddit because nobody bothered to celebrate Canada Day on Canada Day. I had to do it.... It's belated, as is this posting. My wording is messy and a bit chaotic, though still proudly Canadian.

I'm happy with the more joking comments making note of 'Timbits' and 'Qu'Appelle's Bell', those are the type of comments which are missing and what I'm seeking. Then we have Fisherman being rude as hell causing people to swarm me, downvote me & the subreddit..... It's an outright mess thanks to them. I'm honestly not allowed to connect with my Canadian side because you guys keep claiming Canadians are "minor", would be "pointless work", would "delay other events & shipgirls", and etc.....Dude, common.... Grow the hell up.

My wish is simple! I just want to connect with Canadians. Let me! Stop treating me like a circus animal. My Subreddit had 56-60 votes (staying there) when ti could have actually went up to 70, 80, 90, or even 130. Nope! Canadians are "taboo", as you've seen the arguments in this thread. I'm now allowed to be proud of my Canadians, but I'll keep trying. I'll keep hyping everything up. One of my latest comments had 5 likes, now down to 3, just because I'm wishing for Canadians........ Screw the Canadians! Not allowed in War games! Only America! 😏 The amount of hate I'm seeing, I have to poke fun at it while equally supporting the positive gestures by both the AL devs & the community.

I have a friend who lives in the Canadian Prairies being highly interested in Azur Lane's take on Fortune (HMCS Saskatchewan), thus having to share everything about her to said buddy. People assume what "we" desire is "minor" and "not worth the effort'. On the contrary, it's a major thing... Fisherman in that subreddit is a moron because they're blinded by being falsely "realistic" while missing out on the big picture. Missing out on the side things of how people want HMCS Haida to be added, how a buddy of mine is curious about Fortune's Canadian identity, and etc.  Not balanced for gameplay? You're missing the point. Too much work for the developers? OH, so the developers are weak and incompetent? Don't insult the developers. They're smart, they can figure something out.

Also, as for pushing back events just to add Canadians.... How selfish and moronic can you be?! Why are you so stupid..... Developers are smart, they can time things out to be sprinkled, given their own event, and etc. They're still a part of the game....... I hate fake "realistic" people, I can immediately tell they're plastic and egoistical.....  Stay away from me or I WILL call you out. I may not be the best with my wording, but I WILL call you out on your fakeness.

Once Victory Belles adds more Canadians & elements I'll be hyping that up also :) My wish is simple. 

-------------

I know Canadians are not confirmed in being added, though they are making a loose appearance in that game while having the faction name of 'Maple Monarchy'. That's enough to make me highly happy making me love how Azur Lane is acknowledging Canadians. The more we call them out in praise, the more we praise them, the more likely we'll see them. Hopefully we'll see some Canadian festive outfits, and such. It just makes it more appealing to play Azur Lane over KanColle. When you acknowledge certain national playerbases they're more willing to play and be curious.

Sorry for the third posting in a row. Sorry if this comes off as whining, just noting something again from Azur Lane Reddit downvoting everything I posted in the lastest 'mini-faction expended' subreddit. I got absolutely murdered/lynched, karma/downvoting wise. People sticking onesided on HMS side, not exploring the other side.

Well, I just experiences a nasty case of Reddit swarming abuse.... I simply asked for Mini-factions to be expanded and they just downvoted EVERYTHING I posted in that thread. The thread itself, the posting.... RIP. The Karma I earned, RIP. I'm aware my wording ain't the best, but even then, just meet me halfway. I simply asked for Canadians, Australians & etc to gain their own mini-faction, HMCS/HMAS designations so you could actually know their real self, not the HMS Haida, or HMS Vampire nonsense. I was even unaware Fortune & Foxhound turned Canadian when they were lent, something Twitter pointed out.......HMS Foxound should also have HMCS Qu'Appelle, and HMS Fortune should be HMCS Saskatchewan. It's not that hard. National themed outfits of their period, yet that's taboo. It's this reason why I suggested ships to be given their actual desgination of HMCS/HMAS, & etc so we can identify them properly. 

You know the KanColle naming way with Gangut & Kasuga Maru? Basically like that. Apparently it's taboo for me to request that, thus downvoted heavily.

One person noted the ships should stay as HMS because the ships were of British origin.... You're missing the god damn point! Allow them to have their alternate identities! Do what KanColle did, give them alternate namings, Outfits, and etc to respect their other self.... ITS NOT THAT HARD. Stop making it difficult! 

I apparently committed a very violent crime of murdering families, killing children, and etc... It's extreme.....I'm apparently a pedophile, or something. At least meet me halfway...... What they mentioned isn't halfway...

I hope that if Azur Lane of the future will add new destroyers and light cruisers, there is a great possibility that Polish, N class, G class, M class and Danae-class will appear for the first time, it will be British ship and perhaps Retrofit.

This ^ 100% this! Azur Lane has this chance, thus why I'm hyping up the Canadians for it during Canada Day, then tried making a 'Mini-faction' reddit on Azur Lane reddit for it to be treated like trash. I even found out Azur Lane covertly also has Australian & New Zealand shipgirls, if you want to care for them.

I honestly would love to see Polish shipgirls for how fiercely they fought. The Polish people would honestly be proud, something Azur Lane Reddit can't comprehend. Thanks for bringing this up :)

I honestly wish the Canadians, Australians, New Zealand, and Polish shall gain their own banners in Azur Lane, regardless of the "clutter" excuse. (View HMCS Uganda below with "mutiny",  or "Uganda Episode". It's a curious read.

------------

As of right now, in Azur Lane (Unofficial):

Australian:
- HMAS Vampire (HMS Vampire)
- HMAS Shropshire (HMS Shropshire)

New Zealand: 
- HMNZS Leander (HMS Leander)
- HMNZS Achilles (HMS Achilles)

Canadians:
- HMCS Qu’Appelle (HMS Foxhound)
- HMCS Fraser (HMS Crescent)
- HMCS St. Laurent (HMS Cygnet)
- HMCS Restigouche (HMS Comet)
- HMCS Saskatchewan (HMS Fortune)

------------

Also, been doing some more reading on ships again thanks to Azur Lane.... I'm now a bit depressed with what I've learned about HMCS Uganda because information had changed again (wiki side).... Things became more depressing with what I've learned making HMCS Uganda appear "cowardly"...... Probably shared this, yet sharing it again because I'm refreshing my memory.

HMCS Uganda:
https://navalandmilitarymuseum.org/archives/articles/controversies/the-uganda-episode

HMCS Uganda spent her time training her crew with the RN, had her modernized in the UK later, traveled through the Mediterranean and into the Pacific. She appeared to have been hastefully deployed into the Pacific by not having a tropical retrofit, nor was her fresh water supply proper. Ventilation was poor, as was living conditions. She also (in hindsight) pre-maturely ventured into the Pacific while oblivious to the new changes to occur to the volunteer policy, something which would cause the 'Uganda Episode' issue. She then spent her time in the Pacific doing anti-air runs, bombarding bases, shelling places. She had a well trained & skilled crew, just morale was painfully low because they were "fighting the wrong enemy", & the poor condition their ship was in for where they were fighting/deployed. They wanted to fight Germans, not the Japanese. Their morale also taking a dip because they wanted to get away from "Kamikaze" pilots for how harsh they were. 

Canadian identity is important, as is any national identity. 

Quote

In his book "Mutiny - The Odyssey of HMCS UGANDA", Chief Petty Officer James W. Essex commented that as personnel reported on board, many of the ship's company noted the absence of the Canadian Red Ensign and the maple leaf that should have been displayed on the funnel. This was felt to be an insult to Canada. 

Quote

When one considers the quality of food, living conditions, the lack of a sense of Canadian identity, suicidal Kamikaze pilots, and pressure from the Commanding Officer, combined with lack of government support, it becomes clear that there was no mutiny onboard UGANDA, and that her ship's company was far from cowardly. Instead, the vast majority of the ship's company exercised their democratic right as dictated by the government's "Volunteers Only" policy.

Canadians also felt "undesired" in the Pacific, thus voting out while also taking advantage of the new volunteer policy. Not in a selfish crafty way, just in a "human" way. They had to re-volunteer, thus choosing to leave, more so after what the Captain (may, or may not have) said about the "quitters". British were furious, as were the Americans. Canadians offered to add in HMCS Prince Robert, an AA Flak ship. British had to swap out HMCS Uganda with one of their own, and the Americans only allowed the Canadians to refuel, not fix any boilers. They refused to fix their boiler issues calling them "cowards".... They viewed HMCS Uganda's crew as "cowardly" for leaving the war prematurely...... 

Now, I bet if the Canadians on HMCS Uganda had a Canadian emblem on the funnel they would have probably felt more of a reason to stay in the Pacific, regardless of the revised volunteer draft. They would be able to boast they're Canadian, staying longer....Everything was just in rough condition they wanted a better pace at things. If they at the very least had that Maple emblem on the funnel they would have probably scored hits on some odd Japanese Destroyer, or something. Hindsight is 20/20, but even so, this is my take on things with the cards I see placed on the table. Who knows..... Reading up on HMCS Uganda has me at least being proud that she had one of the best radar & rewards when in the Pacific. She is able to sport & boast about something. Everything else hurts in an embarrassment, and it was a national embarrassment to the Canadians. 

If she was to be added into Azur Lane you would bet she would have a very high AA rating. She would probably make a line of unwilling to fight the Japanese, even noting the kamikaze, if the Azur Lane developers are wise about that........

I want to find more information so I have more to pull from. I want to know more about HMCS Uganda because it can't be just that, can it?

n my opinion, Canadians have a better chance of appearing in Azur Lane. You had a larger fleet than the Indians and Australians and New Zealanders. The Polish navy will appear probably the last in the game.

Many times the Polish Navy cooperated with the Canadian Navy during World War II.

True. I agree with this in an 80% manner. You may see a surprise appearance of others before Canadians, who knows. I'm still siding with Azur Lane because of how KanColle betrayed me gameplay wise. It has quality, I however favour Azur Lane still. Happy to hear how we helped each other out, as it should be. None of this weird "infighting", as we've done on either HMCS Nabob or HMCS Puncher....

--------------------

I'm still annoyed by the comments of not adding in Canada because they're a "minor nation"... That shouldn't play a part in anything. If someone participated in WW2 they should automatically be in a WW2 game, not the cookie-cutter nonsense. Disagree with me all you want, it'll still make me favour Silent Hunter 3 & Victory at Sea for at least semi-adding various nations. This is however a side-note thought.

-----------------------------

- HMCS Haida - Tribal-Class Destroyer - Visiting Haida:

Finally visited HMCS Haida after a few years of plotting and planning. She's a beauty commanding respect from the get-go! Even when seeing the tip of the bow she was glorious. Up close, inside; She's a thing of beauty all around. I'm so glad people who served on her protested to save her. I honestly wish Canadians were far more cautious and protective of their national history & treasures because they seem to allow others to trample on them, unlike me. They allowed HMCS Ontario & HMCS Uganda/Quebec to be scrapped, and they even allowed an Avro Arrow replica to be destroyed by weather. They left a national treasure sitting unattented & unguarded in the Canadian climate to gain damages, even leaving it unrepaired for the longest time (Unsure if the Avro Arrow was repaired, that's something for another topic. This is HMCS Haida's time to shine). They're also apparently allowing HMCS Haida to rust and rot in certain places; Paint peeling. ..... Touring Haida though, best thing ever! Loved gaining perspective on how ships are laid out by rooms, how they're operated, what's where, how you enter areas, and how the Captain's Day quarters appear. There was a lot to learn. For being one of the two remaining WW2 vessels we need to do what we can to keep her active as a museum vessel.

I had to use Foxhound because of her HMCS Qu'Appelle personality. I can't wait for when Azur Lane genuinely respects Canadians. If they blanket them under UK then that's going to still be a major disservice not just for the Canadians, but the Polish, Australians, New Zealand, & etc. Putting Canadians under the 'Maple Monarchy' would go a long way, or so noted in Foxhound/Fortune's quotes. National pride is everything. I don't care if it clutters the menu, find a way to keep it clean! Make them stand out for any game you put them in, not just for the Canadians. Don't find excuses, give me results. 

Seeing HMCS Haida has me fired up again and I love what I've seen. I love what I've learned, and I love everything about Haida, especially knowing she's the only Canadian warship (with HMCS Sackville) still present from WW2 era. We do have Submarines, and the like on display, they however may be highly remote while also being post-WW2. They still need to be cherished & respected though.  I also learned Haida had many pets.. Cat, dog, rabbit, Reindeer. Worth it.

I took 280+ Images because of how far Haida was... I didn't want to sleep in another creepy motel for further madness. Also, who knows if and when I'll go back, or if I'll go back at all. IF they add in HMCS Haida for Azur Lane I may go back to tie up some loose ends picture wise to be done with it. I had to make the most of it, thus I spent a solid 3 hours there.

(Wording may be all over the place because I'm both hyped & tired; Semi-jetlag. I also have to go back and edit my typos in my blog postings. I'm just highly fatigued, thus shall do it after my sleep. Posting this as I go sleep)

Honestly, why is this so difficult? If someone is curious about the Royal Canadian Navy the information should be at the ready at any time.... It shouldn't be so complicated & overshadowed by by other factions. All information should be accessible at the same level.

HMCS Maginificent Video by Drachinifel on Youtube.

 

I'm actually quite hyped about this, especially now knowing about how HMCS Haida escorted her, and how they nearly lost their squadron of planes. How the fog obscured everything to the point they had to linger in the air for as long as possible until something awesome happened.

How highly unlikely, I would love to see HMCS Magnificient in ANY wargame. She was ordered during war time, thus needing to be added in as a late unit in a game. KanColle, Azur Lane, or anything. I don't care :)

He's planning to release three more videos so I'll be sharing more.

-HMCS Bonaventure
-HMCS Ontario
-HMCS Quebec

Would have loved to see a video about HMCS Prince David, HMCS Prince Henry, and HMCS Prince Robert because they weren't pushovers either. They saw a nice amount of service while also being a part of a Canadian film.

I somehow missed HMCS Haida's video. Here's her video if you want to see her video side of things. 

Can't wait for when game developers (other than Victory Belles) shall freely add Canadians in without the weird excuses of "minor nation" and etc. It's honestly so weird....

------------------

Edit: This next video slipped past my radar because of how stupid Youtube works. HMCS Bonaventure is now up! More awesome Canadian pride.

It's making me reconsider what can be considered to be added into WW2 game now. HMCS Magnificent & HMCS Bonaventure should be considered now if we have these naval experts spotlighting them. I'm fine with that, though people being stingy won't be. Always guilt tripping & etc. "Minor nation", or some stupid "Commonwealth UI clutter" nonsense..... Nah... I'm not buying that. I simply want to connect with my Canadian pride :)

 

HMCS Bonaventure hype! :)

@Shirogane: The same plaque that's near the bow of HMCS Haida. Awesome stuff! :) 

If you check out the blog posting I left behind of HMCS Haida you'd see she has one also. Excellent, that's something nice to note. 

-------------------

HMCS Uganda/Quebec:

This video is short and sweet, and to the point. It notes HMCS Uganda's history fairly briefly while glossing over the whole mutiny part. She had awesome AA, even planes at one point. This vessel was highly advanced, yet poorly equipped for how swiftly it was transferred into the RCN fleet. This poor vessel then fought in the Pacific ill-equipped, only hastening the re-drafting poll to pull out to either fight the Germans, or nobody at all. Americans at Pearl Harbor called her "cowards" and sent her on her way while not repairing a damaged boiler......

She was the biggest ship, thus her crew boasted about her size of being the biggest ship in the RCN. She was the largest until Canadians went through 2-3 various aircraft carriers before they were satisfied. Then the RCN was disbanded causing a brutal death to the mighty Royal Canadian Navy...... Canadians still trying to recover from that one..... 

As expected, and as I feared, you have weird people abusing her name with the VRchat 'Uganda' meme.... NO! Keep that meme dead. It's only funny when the right person says it, not when some random Joe says it....... 

But yeah,..... Again, having noted how Canadians went through 2-3 aircraft carriers makes me feel Canadians still deserve their own faction in any WW2 war game, regardless of balancing issues. Just having them is enough. Maybe people want a challenge...Even after all these years I'm still not buying into "UI clutter", and all that nonsense. I just can't.....  If people want to be lazy, be lazy somewhere else. Not implying the developers are, I'm just saying.....Common.... I still view Silent Hunter 3 in high regards because of how much care went into it.

I'm simply thankful for Drachinifel for spotlighting these lovely Canadian vessels,  even if with their spotted naval past & equally brave achievements. I'm proud that more information is available for those who want to inform themselves of what the Canadians were like in WW2. Still needs more information because people are still out of the loop...... Canadians need to be their own faction (and Polish, and etc) with developers needing to stop playing childish games by actually following in Silent Hunter 3's footsteps, not cookie cutter games.

HMCS Ontario - Minotaur Light Cruiser:

The final ship on the list making a very late entry into the war to see it had missed out. Still a part of WW2, if by a hair.

So, this rounds out Canada's WW2 naval fleet in his videos showing Canadians were a force to be cautious of at the end of WW2, just a case of "A little too late" by the end of it. Three aircraft carriers, 2 light cruisers, many destroyers, and 3 merchant cruisers being 'HMCS Prince Robert', HMCS Prince David, & HMCS Prince Henry. Not bad. Thanks to his videos I even learned a lot from various vessels, things I haven't even come across from self-researching via Google & such.

Many things are still omitted, though this sums things up nicely. I'm thankful he chose to do these HMCS videos because it gives Canadians presence and respect without treating them as throw-away objects, or even ghosts. 

--------

If game developers could just add in Canadians without whining about 'UI Clutter', or 'minor nation' then that be nice. I'm still thankful Canadians even do get added while under the weird HMS umbrella, I however want to wave either the Canadian or 'Maple Monarchy' (Azur Lane) banner high and proud. While Canadians are shy and into the whole SJW nonsense I rather take the more natural route of just priding of Canada's accomplishment, even though I'm aware of Canada's populace loves getting suckered into the whole SJW movement out of natural habits of being a "peacekeeping nation", ironically attacking other nations with words, not weapons. That's that, and this is this so I simply want to connect with my Canadian identity. That's all :)

I'm happy Azur Lane focuses on other nations like the two sides of France, while even recently adding in Italians. I honestly 100% can't wait to fly my 'Maple Monarchy' flag there, or maybe even in Victory Belles, if it chooses to release or not. Victory Belles still worries me. But I honestly can't wait for the 'Maple Monarchy' to be a thing. Outfits, HMCS designation..... Whatever it is, I can't wait.

I guess with this I'll be going back into lurking mode unless someone wants to post more Canadian WW2 content in the gaming realm, or is aware of any other Youtubers sharing anything HMCS related from WW2 era. I'll occassionally peak back, maybe once a week, once a month, or so. Who knows..... Only the wind knows.
