    So, like with me, does everyone in PEI presume you are local? A Ling from Wheatly River? I got the Belfast thing like I got the Caper thing in NS (my folks are Scots immigrants).

    Davey

    Here's hoping the sudden flurry of activity gets you back on Rukavina's blogroll, else I'll never find you again. (Well, I will find you, but I really hate having to type out that interminably long url...)

    Nils Ling

    Get a nine year old to show you how to bookmark something. But yeah, I had noticed I was de-blogged by Ruk. He clearly took offense to my impassioned defense of Air Canada. If he doesn't re-instate me, I'll take him off my blogroll, thus reducing his site traffic by ... ummm .. me.

    I get asked all the time if I'm a Wheatley River Ling or if I'm related to Don or Barry or Jamie or David. I smile benignly and let people believe what they will. In fact, my ancestors are Swedish and most Island Lings have roots in England (I'm guessing one of my ancestors sowed some oats during a pillage/rape business trip back in antiquity). But I'm not above letting people believe I'm from the Island if it suits my purposes.

    Only place I was ever delisted - again after a disagreement on a topic. Odd cat. Then again, I delisted Nils but only because I moved to a favorites and bloglines habit where some are at one place and some the other. You are on the bloglines.

    Davey

    I'm still shaking my head at this - you both got delisted because you wrote something he disagreed with?

    If that's true, it seems immature. If someone writes something on a blog that I disagree with, I simply roll my eyes, chuckle to myself and move on to the next article or exit the site. No harm done - well, my eye muscles might get a little fatigued by times.

    I'd assume that if I was to post my personal views on a blog, that occasionally someone is going to disagree with me. Well, maybe more than occasionally. Other than a bruised ego, again, no harm done.

    But then, on the other hand, maybe he just thinks you both are a couple of poopy-pants.

    Alan

    I'll have you know Nils and I are each very sensitive about the whole poopy-pants thing and we thank you not to mention it again.

    I live in the centre of Ling country in Wheatley River. We will allow you to claim kinship if it helps. You are right about their ancestors being from England. Our future daughter in law is from Singapore and said that the English "Ling" ancestors have been traced back to that country. They were not Chinese. She said she grew up next door to an English Family named Ling and they were "white dudes in bad need of dental work." Sounds rather British, doesn't it?

Our future daughter in law is from Singapore and said that the English "Ling" ancestors have been traced back to that country. They were not Chinese.

    Sorry for the repeated entry. I got a "page time expired" warning and when I refreshed...the entry that I had been previewing was posted.
    Now I am getting a message "An error occurred...
    In an effort to combat malicious comment posting by scripts, I've enabled a feature that requires a weblog commenter to wait a short amount of time before being able to post again. Please try to post your comment again in a short while. Thanks for your patience." Hmmm...Nils, I didn't know you were so technical savvy.

    Nils Ling

    Oh, yeah, I'm a real tech wizard, for a poopy-pants. And young master Davey, I was just joshin' about why Ruk de-Nils'd his site. It's almost certainly because my postings became more and more rare. He still loves me ...

    Jean

    ...we all love you. Even the gals who I volunteer with at the QEH. They tell me the only reason they buy the Eastern Graphic is to read your column. Bet you didn't know you had a fan club with the average age being 63!

    Davey

    I was skeptical when I read your comment about being de-listed and thought my post conveyed a sense of that. I was just relishing the chance to call you a poopy-pants.

    However, just to make you a bit more paranoid, Matt Rainnie's site stayed on Ruk's bloglist for weeks after Matt took it down - Rob MacDonald's still got it on his bloglist. Your site got de-listed in a fraction of the time. Ruk's got it in for ya. C'mon - can't I get a blogwar happening here, people?!
