Noon today, from the patio...
Okay, that's my take - my friends who ski or board are already smiling and they will be racing along in brilliant warm sun today. Our ski hill is about 45 minute out of town - those of you who ski should look at these photos of Whitewater. I'll take reservations!
Okay, a question for you. Everything that begins, has an ending. Everything with a birth has a death. (That's just to set the oh-so-serious stage for the question...)
Now the question: Where do you find inspiration or motivation in your life?

Thugs, dictators and creeps - we see you
I believe this was made in France. Simple...makes a point. Of course there are many more faces that could be added, not all from the south. Any suggestions?
Let me know if you want to see my tattoo!
You asked. Here is my ink. My 50th birthday gift to my shoulder...

and always paddle your own canoe
This morning I went out to say good morning to Canoe and noticed that someone had been poking around looking at it last night. How did I know that? By the prints in the snow. And it's someone who is very unlikely to ever go paddling with me.

Canadian humour 101
So you get a list that includes people like Jim Carrey, Mike Myers, Martin Short, Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Dave Foley, Samantha Bee, John Candy, Norm Macdonald, Leslie Nielsen, Michael J. Fox, Tom Green and Dan Aykroyd. Even Lorne Michaels, Saturday Night Live producer... yup, Canadian. And then there's SCTV, Kids in the Hall and more. Jeez, even William Shatner's Canadian - and that guy is funny.
This post isn't funny is it? Okay we also have a guy named Rick Mercer, with a weekly show where he makes us laugh, while skewering any sacred cows or tofu which may be left standing. Here's a taste of Rick's Rant, a weekly segment on his show. (Thanks to Beth for reminding me to check in on Rick again.)

Hey, no complaining down there my Yankee friends!
I'm as cynical as the next humanoid, but I'm feeling some hope in the Land of the Free (or at least the lowest price possible). If I was living there, I think I'd hitch my horse to someone (Obama probably) and get to work. There is hope in the air as well as hype.
What do you think?
