Well who knows, maybe those that get tired of all the bickering will start posting on here. ;)

Talking of the Sally Army Grandad reminded me of when we were kids and they would be out with the band and singing hymms. They would kick in with the strains of "Stand up, stand up for Jesus" and all of us little tykes would counter with "Sit down, sit down for Jesus, the buggers at the back can't see us" and then run off. :lol: :lol:

Never enjoyed the Salvation Army songs. They are here in Canada and do operate Thrift Shops, homeless shelters and other charitable venues but they're not a musical force as I've seen on TV and as you're describing.

Had an uncle who was in the Navy during WWII and he always spoke glowingly of the Salvation Army and their efforts and saw them as being a really TRUE charity unlike some of the organizations that have such heavy overhead costs and such highly paid CEOs that a mere pittance dribbles down to those in need. From everything I've seen I have always agreed and do support the Salvation Army.
