Ever get that "Pounding Headache" that won't go away?

Gee, I've got that pounding headache?
...I wonder why?
Maybe my head is going to explode?

Ted's Hot Dog's ...A Buffalo Tradition since 1927!!!

Yeah, I said Ted's has been around over 50 years, what I should've done was look it up and get my facts straight, Ted's has been selling hot dog's almost 80 years!! I still remember that original location nearby the Peace Bridge, then they expanded it and relocated across the street (Porter Avenue) in the late 1960's and finally after opening a number of locations out in the suburbs, they sold the original location to a competitor in the 1990's, they ran the place into the ground and it finally closed a few years ago. You can read about the history of the franshise here at this link on:

You know, I have a Philosophy on humor...

...No really, I do! I think humor can and should be funny, but without being demeaning or insulting to another person. It's okay to walk that fine line between humor and sarcasm, but try not to cross that line too often. It's okay to make fun at yourself, but not at the expense of another person.

Keeping it funny and "Clean" is more of a challenge then cheap and dirty humor as that is not nearly as clever either!

...In laughter, or in sorrow,

It's humor that redeems.

The spirit of that moment,

Our laughter and our dreams!

So many go through life,

Compounding with interest, just misery and strife,

Dressed in emotional armor,

Anger follows them like a dark cloud in their life,

How dreadful life might be,

With only these cloud‑filled skies,

Yet humor like the sun shines through,

Beams piercing through this sad disguise,

Yet life would be dull and dreary,

Without these pleasant charms...

In times of conflict or, in peace,

It's humor that disarms...

On track for another 5K Run!

Okay, so I tend to over-train for these things...sure, it's only 3.1 miles and perhaps I went out this morning and ran about 6 miles to train for this weekend, then walked another 4 miles (just for good measure) but isn't that what over-achieving is all about? Afterall, I don't want to look like a "whoss" when I get out there! ....did I spell that right?

Oh No! Now I've REALLY put my foot into it (Again!)

So as you know, I've just finished this bike ride and now my younger son wants me to run in a five kilometer foot race which raises money towards research! He convinced me to sign-up for a race called "The Jog For Jake 2006" ...guys, you can click on it to find more information!

Only this time I only have a week to get ready for the run!! ...What do they think I am, "Super Dad"???

Start of a 105 (109) mile ride!! - De Tour de Cure!!

This Picture was taken a spilt-second after the one below!
This was taken before the rain started to fall!
(about 5 miles into the ride)

I wish I had a photo of me after I finished, I was looking like something the CAT dragged in!

Speaking of GOOD, RIDES!!!

I finished the 105 mile ride yesterday with some steam left-over too!
(Of course, that's not me shown here!)
It was raining all day and most of the ride looked more like this.
A lot of the course was on country roads that looked like this too...but wet, VERY wet! I missed a couple of turns and ended up way off-course but about 20 miles resulting in me adding about 20 miles to my route!

All Good Runs Come to an End....

...So is happened last night with the Buffalo Sabres...

I guess life in the NHL is like life in the Navy, or aboard our BOSTON's. Sometimes you give your heart and soul and have it taken away from you; in our cases decommissioned and scrapped.

Hot and Steamy June has come!

Okay, so it's been a while since I posted, but I've been busier then a bee in late spring with everything! For the Memorial day weekend i took a few extra days off and went camping/canoeing up north in a wilderness park up north in Canada (Algonquin Park) which is deep in "hockey country" speaking about hockey, how about them Buffalo Sabres!! They will be playing Game Seven in the conference finals tonight and I've always taken the philosophical approach in that may the best team win (which I hope will be the Sabres!)

I expect to see a whole lot of this tonight!
