Our dog Meisha is a little over eighteen months old now and always waits to greet Tressa home from work as seen in the first picture. The second picture is funny because Meisha knows that she is not allowed to go on the couch, but gets around the issue by going on us from time to time. She also has crossed her paws which looks very pseudo ladylike.
Here are a couple of pictures from the summer trip Tressa and I took to California. The first one is of us on a Disneyland ride and the second is of the gorillas we saw at the zoo.
I am entering the half-marathon event in a few weeks in the Saskatoon Mogathon. This will be my first race at this distance. Over the last couple of weeks I have been doing my long runs with my friend Vince - who has ran some marathons - which has been a welcome way to livin up what can otherwise be a long, boring run.
I am happy to say that two nights ago I completed the 21.1km (13.1 mile) distance for the first time. Though it was a slow time - over 2:35 - it was great to accomplish the feat.
Here is one of my favourite songs over the summer. "Come to Light" by the Arkells. Enjoy.
I recently purchased a Google Chromebook. Chromebooks are different from traditional computers because they run on the Chrome Operating System (OS) and the central focus is the browser. Internet connectivity is thus quite important. Another distinction is that installing native apps (local programs) is not possible ( by default ). The hard drive and amount of memory are also much smaller then computers that do focus on native applications.
Tonight Boston and Montreal square off in the decisive game of their quarterfinal series. It has been a hard fought contest and Montreal has looked very good. Either team can win and should go on to the cup final. What it will come down to are a few key things...
Embarassing, that almost half of 2014 has passed. I suppose I have been busy...
In my opinion, this Montreal team has the best opportunity to win the Stanley Cup since 1992-93. The primary reasons are they have one of the best goalies in the game today, Carey Price and a legitimate blend of players needed for post season success.
In May we went to Humboldt and bought a german shepherd-black lab cross and named her Meisha. I was thrilled as I've wanted a dog for a decade. Meisha definitely has a strong willed nature and can be a handful, but she is also very smart and snuggly, not to mention a speedster.
Meisha has given a lot of joy to Tressa and I. We recently brought her to a dog park and all three of us thoroughly enjoyed the experience. She is almost 50lbs now and though we usually do not pick her up anymore the picture below is a fun one.
On Saturday, September 28th I ran the 10k event of the 2013 Saskatoon Mogathon in 55:10 which is over 5 minutes faster than at my previous 10k event in May.
Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds - Dig!!! Lazarus Dig!!! (2008)
This album has been a staple of my music collection since it's release in 2008. I think it is one of Nick Cave's best albums. The album is moody and full of lyrical imagery. Dark, trancy at times such as on the track "Night of the Lotus eaters". The lyrics of this album are very strong and is what draws me back to it time and again. The track "Midnight Man" is an absolute gem:
Hold that chrysalis in your palm See it split and change It won't do you any harm It's just trying to rearrange
It was born to live a day Now it flies up from your hand It's beautiful It's the one they call your ever loving man
Wolves have carried your babies away Oh, your kids drip from their teeth The nights are long and the day Is bitter cold beyond belief...
...Close your eyes, sleep in him Dream of your lost sons and daughters Me, I'll raise up my dorsal fin And glide up and down the waters
The closing track "More news from nowhere" though just under eight minutes could go sixteen and I would be quite happy to listen to it all.
