This is an Ideas Brain Dump post. Alright, over my holidays I’ve been tackling the job of making new window sills for the windows in our house. The wooden ones had been rotting away (it’s an old house, don’t you love them?) and it was suggested to me by a friend of mine that replacing […]
Well, today is my birthday (and yes the birthday of the US Independence Day – but since I’m Canadian I won’t emphasize that…however, thanks for the fireworks :)) and yet another year has passed by in my life. The age-old saying is true, the older you get…the faster time flies. So what is it anyway? […]
Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that increasingly abnormal weather patterns we’ve seen in the world lately. Is it a sign of global warming or just a natural cycle in terrestrial geographical patterns? I lean more towards global warming myself…
My Grandparents are celebrating their 65th Wedding Anniversary this year and I thought I’d do some research on the internet and find out what was going on the year they were married. Easier said than done! But I did come across this really helpful site called, dMarie Time Capsule. When you go to this site […]
I’ve been a bit slower at posting on my blog the last week because I’ve been doing some work “under the hood”.? I’m just one of those geeks who loves tweaking things and seeing what adds to the ‘value’ of my work (in this case YAR).
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 […]
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!)
“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!
