Prairie Mountain

I went biking yesterday and had a great ride of about 32km. With the river levels up most of the local trails in the city are under water and here in Winnipeg it’s pretty flat on the roads. However, with a 40+ kph: wind you can really get a workout when you’re riding into it! This is something I refer to as a “Prairie Mountain”. It may be flat, but a long hall into a stiff headwind can seem just as hard as climbing a mountain trail.

It was also a good day for flying a kite. Some people even tried flying a kite while riding a bike. Kiteboarding becomes Kitebiking!

Wish List

I’ve been reading Seth Godin and that lead me to his Liar’s Blog which I found quite interesting. Of course being a good marketer, he’s promoting his books and I guess the promotion was effective because I’ve added a couple to my wish list. So if anyone is looking to bless me with a nice surprise or looking for a Fathers day gift…

Life is a Beach

Scott took this picture last year on our dock at Lake of the Woods. It really captures the way I feel about the lake and lake life. Nothing is a problem at the lake, and I’m looking forward to getting back there soon. Actually, most days I’d rather be at the lake. Posted by Hello


Just investigating the w.bloggar tool to see what sort of thinks it can do. Basically, because I’m a WYSIWYG kind of guy and reluctant to get down into the HTML code etc. This stuff needs to be easy to do. Life has enough challenges without remembering stuff you don’t really need to know. You know, simple things like a spell checker are nice to have, especially for us 6 finger typers.

Medora Man

Just experimenting with the Hello program to post pictures. The yellow guy is the “Medora Man” so named because I recovered him from a geocache in Medora ND. while on a mountain biking trip to the Maah Daah Hey trail. Posted by Hello
