Ahhh  GOLD!  Right, it happened yesterday afternoon.  The Team Canada Boys rocked the gold medal and capped a great couple weeks in British Columbia.

I am so happy they triumphed in the nail biter against our arch nemesis country, the USA in a thrilling overtime win.  If they had lost, it would have put a bit of a spoiler on the whole 14 Gold medal record and a Canada best 26 medals at Winter Olympics.

I get it, gold in like ice dance and I dunno, other sports… but for me, the hockey is the only one that really mattered.  Its going to be kinda hard to go back to NHL hockey on Tuesday (Nucks vs. Rick Nash and Blue Jackets).


I am happy for my friend Tyson.  He got a job playing keyboards for Florida punkers Against Me!.

We all know and love the T Razer from his days playing bass in former Zone bands of the month Moneyshot and keys/guitar for Acres of Lions.

Against Me will be in Victoria on Wednesday playing a Zone Show with Billy Talent, Alexisonfire and Cancer Bats at the Arena.

Razer will get to travel across the country with the Florida band playing arena show for the next month or so (I can’t remember how long the tour is).  While Tyson is on the road with Against me, Acres of Lions lead guy, Jeff will be playing with another Victoria band, Theset.  Theset were added to the SnoCore tour, criss-crossing the Great White North and in Victoria on April 4th.


Wasn’t able to go grocery chopping last night, so I didn’t pack a lunch today!  I’ll have to plan that put tonight and go later this evening for the Sandwich Project.  I’ll post an update on that front later when it happens.

Go with yourself.

This picture makes me laugh.  My brother Matt stepped into the year 2009 days before with ring in the big 10 with a smart-phone.  He snapped this last night after Christmas dinner while we were all huddled around the TV watching “The Hangover” for the third time.

My old man got us all Team Canada Hockey shirts for Christmas.  Like everyone.  Coral got a jersey, Caitlin, my sister.  He kept one for himself.

I don’t care what your personal views on the Olympic are, Olympic hockey to me is the best tournament and I’ll be watching.  I still hope to some how finagle tickets to a game, but at the very least, I might burn some holiday time I have saved up and be in the city if Team Canada makes the final.

The laws of positive attraction right?  If I am in the right place at the right time, who knows? Maybe I’ll get in the building?

Christmas was fun as usual.  Madelyn was rightly spoiled and getting to an age where she loves toys.  She might not get “Christmas” but she sure gets Upsy Daisy dolls and play Kitchens.  She has been going a little overboard with the chocolates.

I am back in Victoria today because I had to work a radio show, but then I’ll be off to Kelowna for a couple days before coming back to DJ on New Years Eve.  If you’re looking for something fun still, maybe consider NYE at the Hotel Rialto.

Coming back to Victoria was fun. I got to ride the ferry by myself!  Riding the ferry by myself is a rare treat since having Madelyn.  I forgot how easy and pleasant the boat is when I walk on just before sailing, read a National Geographic and walk off the other side.  Gave me a great opportunity to decompress and daydream about escaping to the South Georgia Island.

If you ask me what I want to be when I grow up, on the list between Medieval Knight and Ensign Baker on the USS Enterprise; would be explorer.

There are not too many places left on the map to explore anymore.  Its has a future job prospect level that is low, right around steam engine operator and radio broadcaster.  Still the idea is romantic.

National Geographic  was talking about these remote islands in the South Oceans near Antarctica that teem with arctic critters like penguins and seals and whales and any number of birds.  There are old rusted out whaling stations, some old cannons from World War Two, a restored church, a museum and not much else.  Some scientists a reckon.

I think it would be pretty neat to go there.  I could just hire on to some sort of Adventure Tourist outfit I suppose, but their rates start at $11,000 US!

Maybe after I win the lotto but before I launch my AM radio station?  maybe…

rusted out sealing boats in Grytviken, South Georgia Island.
