Not so easy riding...

I’m pretty much finished my motorcycle lessons. Action Motorcycle has really done a good job giving me the basic skills I need to ride. I’ve completed my motorcycle skill assessment and had the “supervision required” and “no faster than 60 km/h” restrictions removed from my learners. And I took my very own motorbike out […]

My friend Bilbo

Last weekend we made the decision to have our cat Bilbo euthanized. I’m still dealing with it, and probably will be for several weeks if not months. He was, after all, my friend for the last eighteen years.

Exercise: some motivation required… lots of motivation, actually

I own the following T-shirt from Shirt.Woot!:

Tracking my calories…

I sort of stumbled into a diet and exercise website called LiveStrong the other day. I was looking for a way to test out the BlackBerry App World, which had been giving me trouble, and decided to download the LiveStrong BlackBerry app which works with the website itself.

Ewoks gone mad

The folks on the Today Show have discovered a little known fact about the Ewoks from Star Wars. They really can’t handle their booze very well…

Apparently the folks inside the Ewok costumes really were drunk and, as it was a live TV program, the producers decided to just go with it. […]

Nova Scotia Vacation Pictures

I decided to avoid procrastinating by converting/uploading all of our vacation photos today. I’m done, and you can check them out in our gallery, or read on for more specific links.

Home again…

Irene and I got back home yesterday (Monday) somewhat before noon local time. The vacation was great and I enjoyed seeing Nova Scotia, but it is probably somewhat telling that both Irene and I slept for nearly 16 hours when we got home.

The main things I would change for next time would be […]

On the Bluenose II… and ducks

Irene and I are on day two of our vacation to Nova Scotia. So far, I am having a lot of fun. We’ve flown too far, eaten too much, and now I have wind burn. In my previous post I provided a link to our travel “map”: in theory, it is supposed to be […]
