I guess with all this talk about the Ottawa valley, I should say that I too live in Kingston, Ontario, and spent a number of years in Almonte, just a few miles north of Carleton Place.

Hi and Peace to you!          Do we call you Devin?

               That's beautiful country indeed!  Right by Mississippi Lake, source of the Canadian Mississippi River that flows from the Carleton Place area into the mighty Ottawa River!

                      When I was courting my first wife back in the late 1950's, attending Concordia Lutheran Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri, I used to take a train to Toronto, then a Canadian Train to Carleton Place, and got off there and hitchhiked over to Pembroke, Ontario on Highway 17 - The Trans-Canada Highway.  The Steam Engine days were just over at that time in the United States and were coming to their end in Canada .....

                                  Those were the days of the real, genuine steam engines!   With coal, even!  Wow!           I remember Carleton Place fondly!          *smile*

BTW - My first wife is still my present wonderful wife -- over 52 years later!            *smile*                     Praise God!

Class G5c Pacific 1262 was built by the Canadian Locomotive Company of Kingston, Ontario, in November 1946, based on a very much modernized design of CPR light Pacifies that went back to 1906. Seen here at Ottawa West, the 1262 has less than two years left before her date with the scrapper in June 1961. What a shame these most modern of North American light Pacifies had such a short life span. Photo by John Frayne.


We're getting a little bit ahead of our story, however. On December 4th, 1959, PI class 2-8-2 5152, which had been working out of Ottawa West for some time, left, dead, on train No. 74 behind Alco diesel-electric "FA-1" unit 4002 in charge of, who else, Viau and Beaudry again for her date with destiny in Montreal. One little Tid Bit I remember about Leo. Viau was that he could put a steel soft drink bottle cap between his thumb and index finger and press it in half with no great effort. Try that one sometime! The following day G5 1267, another Ottawa West "resident", was ordered for 7:00 PM to handle a freight extra over to Smiths Falls, via the Carleton Place and Chalk River subs., with Charlie Weston as engineer and G. Gervais as fireman.

So much history! I love it. And yes, call me Devin. "C" stands for Christopher, but no one really calls me that.

I know Almonte! My cousins lived in Almonte and Arnprior before settling in Carleton Place. As far as I know, my aunt still lives there. I doubt my cousins stayed in Carleton Place though.

This morning I received an email introducing Greg Monette and I thought I'd share it here just in case some Canadian Logos users may have received it.

Logos Bible Software appoints Greg Monette as Canadian market representative

Nova Scotia native to help Canadian believers explore deeper Bible study with new tools

Bellingham, Wash., November 6, 2013 — Nova Scotia native Greg Monette is partnering with U.S.-based Logos Bible Software to strengthen and encourage fellow Canadians in their Bible study efforts. Monette will serve as Logos’ ambassador to any church or ministry group wanting to explore ways to deepen biblical engagement or how to get the most from tools like Logos Bible Software, Proclaim Church Presentation Software, the Faithlife Study Bible and more.

“Outside the U.S., Canada is our largest customer base,” said Bob Pritchett, Logos’ president and CEO. “Greg Monette understands the church in Canada and will be able to represent us in person more often, helping us better serve our users there.”

A Ph.D. candidate at Trinity College, of the University of Bristol in the U.K., Monette is passionate about studying Scripture and helping bring it to life for others. “Helping people discover tools that really open the Bible up is even better than a great hockey playoff,” Monette said. “I am privileged and honored to serve as Logos Bible Software’s ambassador to my fellow Canadians.”

His role comes with new challenges for Logos — tasks Monette is already dispatching with enthusiasm. “We want to create a sense of community among Logos’ Canadian users, to come together and assist each other in our online forum,” Monette said. “We also want to increase the number of titles from Canadian authors, pastors and theologians in the Logos Bible Software library. We already have great books from authors like Gordon Fee, Craig A. Evans, Stanley Porter, J. I. Packer and D. A. Carson — along with several others — but we plan to see that list grow broader and deeper.” To accomplish this, Monette is building a mailing list of thousands of Canadian Logos users; presenting at ministry conferences; and inviting authors, publishers and pastors to publish their work using Logos.

“The Logos Bible Software resource library will soon have 40,000 titles in it,” Monette said. “A surprising number of those works were written by authors with deep but not well-known connections to Canada. I want to highlight this, draw attention to the intellectual gifts Canada has given to the world and help my fellow Canadians enjoy that same heritage using Logos Bible Software.”

Users can sign up to be alerted about promotions, discounts and Logos-related news by signing up for the Canadian email list here.

Monette is an author, a speaker and a student member of the Society of Biblical Literature. He is a graduate of Saint Mary’s University and Acadia Divinity College. Monette is a lifelong Canadian and a fervent Canadian hockey fan. He currently resides in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

One question though Greg...Since this is a specific email directed at Canadians why is honoured spelled honored? Wink Actually it is interesting to note how many Canadians use US spelling anyway. We are being absorbed by the US culture! Wink

Thanks, Bruce .............          *smile*                                                           Peace!

Methinks that to be absorbed by the U.S. culture is not good, eh???

Hi Greg,

Happy to see a Nova Scotian (as I am too), representing Canadians.

I am an Acadian and French speaking (at home), I see you have a French family name, are you also an Acadian?

I find the Logos bible software great, and a must for those who wants to study the original languages meaning!

For example, I find the original languages differing depending on the faith of the translators due to some traditions and doctrines of men which comes into their translations for the purpose of achieving a desired result, no fault of their own (there has been exceptions).

Unfortunately some fair translations will not find their way in the software for some reason, but hopefully will be offered in the future (I don’t mean any denomination translation).

I sometimes find it very helpful to have side by side the French translation, which I have, translated from the original language, which is closer grammatically to Greek.

Happy to be here, God bless you all who desire the truth.

He probably said it verbally and whoever wrote it down was not a Canadian and didn't know how to spell it the Canadian way.

But yeah, Canadians have been absorbing US spellings. I've noticed "center" spelled the US way a number of times up here, even on business names occasionally, I think.

Greg Monette:

Peace to you, Greg!        *smile*                                    Will you be getting a Logos "tag" in the future?       Just wondering .........

Also, just wondering about your link ........         I honestly don't see anything in there very compelling ....           For example   ... what's so special about Ancient Near Eastern Texts???              ...  same old price, I think???

          In that link, what is specifically a boxing week special, please?

                      I'm not necessarily in the mood to spend more money at this time of year anyway; however, you caught my interest ...       I took a good long hard look at what you sent and honestly can't find anything there that intrigues me ....

                                       I wish you well, indeed!               I pray that your relationship with us and with Logos will be beneficial to all of us! *smile*     I'm not just saying that ...              I have actually prayed about it ...   

Edit!                    I most definitely will pray about it again!            I went back and re-considered the Ancient Near Eastern Texts ....       and!

                !!!!         Surprise!     Surprise!                     Finally decided that the offer to purchase was good enough to buy it at this time ....

so I did!                           I'm the one, Greg, who is really surprised, eh???!!!                *smile*

                  Have wanted to own this resource for a long time .......         now I do!
