Allow me to introduce myself too...
- Hello everyone and forgive the intrusion... Although I was once on this
list about two or three years ago (I think?) I have since rejoined this
year and never, in all that time did a proper introduction...
My name is Matthew Didier and I'm a recent addition to the Norfolk Militia
(Heritage Regiment) Re-Enactment Group... Rifle Coy.
I live in Toronto, Ontario (or, as my mother who lives in the town of
Bancroft occasionally refers to it, "The Big Cesspool") and am thirty-six
years of age... going on twelve in some aspects, ninety-one in other's.
I'm unofficially hitched (soon to be "officially" - read: Engaged) to
another new recruit to the Norfolk named Sue. (For the record, although I
always had 'the bug' and have only just started acting on it, Sue got her
on version of the re-enacting bug about a year and change ago.)
I'm am the very proud webmaster of the website for the Norfolk Militia
(Heritage Regiment) Re-Enactment Group (found at
http://www.ontarioghosts.org/norfolk/ - Comments, critiques and other stuff
is always welcome) and both myself and Sue are looking forward to spending
much more quality time with our friends and the re-enactment community as a
whole come the 2004 season.
For now, I'm a content "lurker" and occasional poster (when possible) here
on the Yahoo! list and continue to look after the ol' website.
Thanks for letting me say hello!

Don't look for duck-tape swordfights or buckethead gladiatorials -- It's
all just King's Regulations and "meat eater" living history, if you catch my

- Your welcome message reminds me of the first time my
daughter's friend Dayna came to a re-enactment. She
thought it was pretty cool that they were telling each
other to "buzz off" :)
Hurray, Don! (that's "hurray", which you will
sometimes hear at 1812 events,
but don't worry...most times the familiar "huzzah"
will be intoned.)
