Hope a speedy recovery to Anne :) (Been there... oh the memories). Watson looks like he has some sort of plan hatched for a future assault on the cast.... he looks oddly confident and mischievous... 2 traits you never want to see in a pet or a toddler...

My Mom is half a brick short of a load. There is simply no other way to say it. I can't lie or beat around the bush. The woman has many wonderful qualities such as an uncanny ability to train dogs and a talent for floral arranging, however her behavior... Continue reading

Wil: do take in an AFL game if you can, and while you're doing that I will be back here in Canada watching the Canucks thoroughly trample the Kings tonight. Anne: 'Kill vegemite with fire' just made you my new favorite person. That stuff is nasty! If we work together we can beat this evil. I simply need you to gather all the vegemite in Oz and I will swing by with a destroyer (or a flame thrower; technically I am in the Army, not Navy) and we can take care of this once and for all!

AVOID VEGEMITE AT ALL COSTS!!! It is truly and thoroughly DISGUSTING!!! Everything else about Oz is amazing, lots of rugby, beach, barby (BBQ) and beer, beer, beer.

Okay, fine... so LA Kings may have come out on top on Saturday... Just so you know, while I am lying in bed all day eating tubs of ice cream it is not because I am embarassed or ashamed... it's cause I went snowboarding earlier and had an epic crash and won't be walking properly for at least a week. The annual Ryan Smyth fmaily tournament was a success, the kids had fun and a lot of pizza was had by all. Always the best wishes to you and your family. :) CS

Ah-hem * Please note that the puck drops tomorrow at 7pm. Calgary is on a 6 game win streak and we intend to crush L.A. for #7! On the ironic side: despite having free tickets to the game, I will not be able to attend (or even watch) as I will be a referee for a children's hockey tournament hosted by none other than the family of L.A. Kings allstar forward Ryan Smyth right here in our home town of Banff, AB. Have a great weekend :) Celia

Enjoy your cruise. It sure was a very happy new year up here. http://www.tsn.ca/canadian_hockey/story/?id=347965 (said with complete love and respect for you. Readers are required to have a sense of humour) I wish you and your family the best and happiest in 2011. Saturday February 5th Calgary Flames vs L.A. Kings. Just remember it's pronounced "GO FLAMES! GO!" Lots of love and a great new year to everyone :)

Thank you for the Honorable Mention :) I know you are busy and your time is appreciated. Now, if we can just solve this one spelling mistake I keep seeing you make in Twitter (joking).... You keep saying 'Go Kings' but I'm sorry, it's actually 'Go Flames! Go!' As in Calgary Flames... a real NHL team.

Well, it's that time of year again! A time to recognize the true spirit of the holiday's. What my mother thinks: What I see: - aren't the lights so pretty? - I've been electrocuted twice -look at all the lovely children playing! - Someone's bastard offspring just puked on me... Continue reading

Adopting a dog is as much a gift to us (humans) as it is for the dogs. I grew up on a farm and our neighbourhood frequently had dogs dumped from the nearby city. We were foruntate enough one morning to find a 4 month old Golden Retriever on our doorstep. After realizing how smart he was my family has expanded to being a foster home for puppies in training with the National Service Dog Association to help people with disabilities. Strange how one turn of the head with floppy ears can just bowl you over :) My condolences on the passing of Ferris and congrats on the new family member, Seamus. Have a great day!

Wow, that photo is great. I can't believe that was with a phone cam. I really miss living by Granville, that market is great, eh? Did you get the chance to take the mini-ferry across from the mainland - Granville or did you take the regualr bridge route?

you are right on all acounts. Facebook is becoming more sketchy by the day and the lack of internet accessability here is frustrating. In blocking out the American content the Canadian government has cleared a path for Canadian creators and artists to promot their work as well (this isn't limited to the internet, it is true for TV and radio content as well). Apparently this was done to keep us involved with our *sigh* 'culture'... (ya it's okay to laugh at that). By law in Canada 35% if all media content must be Canadian. We have overstepped the boundries, however, of attempting to do the same with internet service. The internet should not be governed.
