CN Tower Stair Climb

A couple of times a year the CN Tower in Toronto opens its stairwell for people to collect sponsors and climb it for charity.

This year I have signed up to climb all 1,776 steps in support of The United Way of Toronto.  This is taking place on October 20, 2012, so I'd better get crack-a-lackin' with the stairs training. 

If you'd like to support me, please click on the link below.  Anything at all is appreciated, 100% of any moneys collected goes to the UW of Toronto, and you'll even get a spiffy tax receipt.

Sponsor Caterina Valente

Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart, for your support!

Cool Blog Alert!

I don't live near New York City, and the chances are pretty slim that I'm going there any time soon, but it is a city that I would really love to visit sometime in my life.  This blog that I discovered when a friend shared one of its posts makes me want to visit all the more.

It's called Scouting New York, and it's written by a film location scout, and some of the places he finds are just amazing.  Places that the rest of the city never gets to see, or just ignores as they go about their business.  I'm a big fan of abandoned places and beautiful (if sad) urban decay, so this blog really hit the spot.

I'd like to add that the photography is stunning.  You almost get the feeling you're actually there.

Check it out when you have some time.

Oh, Hypocrisy

Remember this post where I denounced Twitter?

I am ashamed to say I signed up for it this past weekend.  It was totally peer-pressure-driven.  The whole kiddie-table was doing it!

Anyhow, I really didn't know what I was missing.  I rather enjoy it muchly.  You can follow me if you like, but I'm not saying anything worthwhile.  I'm mostly following celebrities.

Bald Eagle Cam!!!


Live from their tree-top nest at a fishery in Iowa, it's the Decorah Eagles!  It's a 24/7 live webcam trained on a pair of bald eagles and their three chicks (eaglets?).  Enjoy, because I know I am!

New Hardware! Woot!

So, I just purchased a lap-top for myself, so hopefully I can update my blogs more often now.

That's all I've got for now.

Mind Purge

Just a few things on my mind that I want to say but don't know where else to:

1.  If only he were younger.
2. I wish those Korean ladies in the building coffee shop would get some crunchy peanut butter.
3. Just when you think you have time to get something done, they throw something else at you.
