Collingwood Triathlon 3

I just registered for the Collingwood Triathlon on Saturday, August 6th, 2005 in Collingwood Ontario. The race I entered entails a 800 Meter swim, 32KM bike ride, and an 8KM run. I’m still a triathlon virgin, but very excited, anxious and nervous about trying it. If I enjoy it, I might perhaps enter an Olympic ...

Zorro Underwear 6

The first time I saw my brother Tom with his “Zorro” underwear, I was on the floor laughing. I don’t know what the Z is actually supposed to stand for, but I like to call them his Zorro underwear. Tomorrow I’ll post a picture of his Wonderwoman underwear

Do all good things come to an end?

… I would have done anything for that girl

Insincerity and heartache 3

What are you supposed to believe when a person you really care about appears to be sincere but their actions don’t reflect what they say? Is everything supposed to be fine the next day when they act like nothing happened, not realizing what pain they’ve put you through? It’s amazing how much impact a person ...

US approves flag burning amendment 1

US House members have approved a constitutional amendment to ban flag burning. The bill will be passed to the senate for voting and there is a good chance it will pass the senate. It would give Congress the power to ban desecration of the American flag. In 1989 the Supreme Court ruled that flag-burning was ...
