  • Karma for the Comma

    I love that visual pun. It’s brilliant. I also love the song that inspired it. Let’s listen to it and then look closely at that often misused and abused piece of punctuation that is the comma. The comma has a few basic functions and rolls to play in a sentence, but today I would like […]

  • Everwood is Now Complete

    Everwood is hands-down the best television series I have ever seen. I watched it during it’s original run and was captivated for all four seasons. When I saw that it was available on DVD, I ran out and bought the first season. I then waited, and waited, and waited. The other three seasons never came […]

  • Shredding With Tony Hawk

    Check out my latest skateboard. You’ve seen the one at the top before. The one on the bottom is my brand new one and I’ve already logged several hours of intense skating on it. I know. It doesn’t have wheels. But it doesn’t need them. It’s actually the controller for a really cool video game. […]

  • Worse Ways to be Stuck Inside

    So I’d been hobbling along for a few days. Days that just happened to be amazingly beautiful and sunny. Days that practically called me to get out and be active. Days that teased me because my bruised and swollen ankle prevented me from doing so. The good news is that my girlfriend was doing some […]

  • Battered and Bruised By a Trail

    It’s amazing how easy it is to hurt yourself. Last week, I went for a run on a fairly flat course. It wasn’t a difficult run at all. There weren’t an abundance of tree roots or rocks to watch out for along the route either. I don’t know how I did it. But ten minutes […]

  • The Truth is Hidden Within Us

    Remember when I used to feature a quotation on this blog every week? That was a long time ago. Today, I thought I’d share a nice quote with you all here.I really like this one. It shows a connection that I feel is present among us all. It speaks a truth. And yes, it is […]

  • It’s All Uphill, Both Ways (Visual Trail Run)

    I first ran part of the Lafarge 2000 trail two years ago. At the time, I thought it was so named because it was about 2000 meters long. Turns out I was wrong. Last week, I found that this trail is continued a little further down the road. I grabbed my camera and eagerly hit […]
