Meet an Expert: Marcus Chatelaine, Militaria,
Thirty four years ago when Marcus was a Cub Scout, the first merit badge
he went after was the Collector badge. Marcus recently sold the badges he
was awarded in the Scouts and purchased a tidy second hand station wagon

The Tibet and China issue is yet to be resolved - though recent talks
between the Chinese and those within the Dalai Lama's camp are setting
precedents. The way the world is turning these days, we are not the
first to predict that this issue WILL BE RESOLVED SOON! These

of Dharmasala - the real Tibetans - and not the Chinese who are ripping off
the Tibetan culture.
