First things first. Get your poppy. 2 minutes of silence tomorrow. It's a pittance of time. And oh yeah - Dogs host Caps tonight

On November 11, 1999 Terry Kelly was in a Shoppers Drug Mart store in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. At 10:55 AM an announcement came over the store's PA asking customers who would still be on the premises at 11:00 AM to give two minutes of silence in respect to the veterans who have sacrificed so much for us.

Terry was impressed with the store's leadership role in adopting the Legion's "two minutes of silence" initiative. He felt that the store's contribution of educating the public to the importance of remembering was commendable.

When eleven o'clock arrived on that day, an announcement was again made asking for the "two minutes of silence" to commence. All customers, with the exception of a man who was accompanied by his young child, showed their respect.

Terry's anger towards the father for trying to engage the store's clerk in conversation and for setting a bad example for his child was later channeled into a beautiful piece of work called, "A Pittance of Time". Terry later recorded "A Pittance of Time" and included it on his full-length music CD, "The Power of the Dream".

Ceremonies in Port Alberni go tomorrow at the ADSS Auditorium at 10:30 SHARP. People attending are asked to be seated by 10:15. If you want a seat I suggest you be there early, because - in true Port Alberni fashion - a large portion of the community will be there and seating always fills up.

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs look for their third win in a row tonight against the struggling Caps, losers of six straight.

Catch the pregame with Rick and myself getting underway at 6:45 with the puck dropping at 7:00pm.

More later!
