KaBoom One-Liners (Episode #2)

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 […]

Finger race…

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!)

KaBoom One-Liners (Episode #1)

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 […]

In the Hockeyville race

Hockeyville Canada

Year: 2006

Producer: CBC

Length: 1hr

Category: Sports

Media: On TV

Rating: 3 out of 5

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!

Falling asleep in the window

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 […]

Man…that’s gotta hurt!

WARNING: This post contains descriptions that might bother the squeamish… The pox has invaded the Ethier household. Chicken pox that is. I vaguely remember having it as a kid but watching my kids go through it almost makes me want to scratch ouch! Karissa went through it about 2 weeks ago and the scars (scabs) […]

Ugh…a bug!

UPDATE (June 4, 2006; 12:47am): I think I’ve crushed this bug…please comment if you notice anything awry though. Thanks! Well, you may have noticed that I’ve been hard at work changing the theme and adding various things to my blog. Well…some are things you’ll notice, some are things you won’t. Anyway, i just realized that […]

Tweaking, tweaking…and yes more tweaking

I haven’t posted much lately because in the little spare time I’ve had the last few days I’ve been downloading and testing out various themes, widgets, and plug-ins for my blog.? It’s something I can’t seem to avoid – I always have to be modifying or “fiddling around” with things on any websites I maintain.? […]
