It’s nearly time to head back to Fredericton and participate in Curl for Cancer at the Fredericton Curling Club and that means fundraising time again. This is my 4th Curl for Cancer event since the death of my mom (from cancer) in [...]
A couple weekends ago, JK, Grant, Dave and myself piled into my old Mazda and drove 1000+ kms (overnight Thursday thanks to an impending storm) to meet up with Trev to participate in Curl for Cancer at the Fredericton Curling Club.
Huge thanks to Dave who agreed to come along this year as our [...]
Happy New Year!
It’s coming up on that time of year again – time to head back to Fredericton and participate in Curl for Cancer at the Fredericton Curling Club. This is an event I’ve participated in twice since the death of my mom (from cancer) in [...]
October 23rd was the date of the first annual 9 Run Run event. The race took place here in Stittsville, so I really had no excuse NOT to run – although I did leave it until a few weeks before the race to actually sign up. They offered a 3km family run and a half [...]

While he had amazing prizes that I’m sure helped his cause enormously, he still made the task of raising over $100K seem easy peasy – I mean he accomplished it in only a few [...]
It’s days like today that scare the hell out of me. I’m sure everyone (at least those that live in Ottawa) has heard about the Ottawa police officer that was murdered today. For me the scariest part is that this wasn’t an act of revenge or anything like that, but rather a random act against [...]
This is one of the coolest stories I’ve heard in a while. The short(ish) version is this: Elden, THE Fat Cyclist (you can read about him here) wrote up a post where he said (in jest) it was time for a career change and he decided that a pro cyclist sounded like a great job. [...]
A while ago I was trying to decide on which twitter iPhone client I was going to use. There are a ton of them out there and I wanted to make sure I got something that worked for me. I narrowed it down to either Twitterrific or TwitterFon (which is now called EchoFon), which seemed [...]
