My family and I are back from the cottage (was gone the last week) and we had a great time! The fishing was good (between all of us we caught about 4 walleye, 3 pike, and too many perch/sunfish to count), weather wasn’t too hot or cold and overall the time away was very relaxing. […]
Nah this isn’t a prison story…were you looking for a prison story? I just wanted to put a note in my blog about me skipping town for a week. My family and I are going to a rented cottage along with my mother, and my sister and her husband (and Aidan their brand-spanking new baby […]
What are Kaboom One Liners? Go [here] to find out! Alright the word for this episode is arbiter. (are-bit-err) KaBoom was peering into the windows of the electronics shop (and leaving marks on the window I might add). He was fascinated by the big-screen T.V.s being showcased just inside the window. Out of the corner […]
I came across this site which allows you to test your typing speed.? My first try netted an 88WPM with one mistake in a one minute test.? Give it a whirl – it’s neat!? (While there check out the top 100, some of those speeds are insane!)
What are Kaboom One Liners? Go [here] to find out! Alright the word for this episode is paucity. (paw-sit-tee) Kaboom was going about his business, you know the usual – twiddling thumbs, smacking his lips, blowing spit bubbles. Today he was sitting on a bench in the park. Along came Bigmouth who said with a […]
“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me” Yeah right! That old saying is about as accurate as a level with no air bubble…

The town I live in is one of the finalists in this competition CBC/Kraft are running to find the one community in the country who has the greatest passion for hockey and the deepest community spirit. I must admit that when I first thought about this contests and Hanover’s entry I thought we stood little chance of getting as far as we have. Kudos go to the organizors of our entry for pulling the community together and entering such a successful bid for the title.
What is hockeyville? Well the winner gets a bunch of cash prizes towards the improvement of the community arena but the thing that intrigues me the most is that there will be a NHL Exhibition game held in the winning towns arena. That’s pretty cool.
Anyway, tonight showcased the final 25 communities that are in the running which will be narrowed down to 10 communities by Friday (by judges and people’s votes). I’ve gotta admit that the only thing that really keeps me watching the episode itself is wanting to see representation from Hanover but honestly the rest of the show itself isn’t a real attention getter. It would be if they would have less talk and more profiles of the individual communities…but I understand theres’ only so much they can show in an hour when there are 25 communities involved! More than likely the next episode on Friday will have more such profiling.
Anyway, cheers to Hanover…the place to be!

I’ve preached some long messages in my time – but I don’t think anything tops this story! As Paul spoke on and on, a young man named Eutycus, sitting on the windowsill, became very drowsy. Finally, he sank into a deep sleep and fell three stories to his death below. Paul went down, bent over […]
Verses Read: Numbers 32; Acts 19 (NIV, NLT) I read through Acts 19 today as part of my devotional and there’s a number of verses that jumped out at me (from Acts anyway). In this post I think I’ll make a few “brief” comments on some observations I’ve made…(note to self, there’s gotta be an […]
