Time for a vote

Let’s take the new look out for a test drive.  Here’s my request – you’ll see three options at the bottom of this entry, would you take time to tick one of three options.  The vote will be a NO for funny, OK for interesting and YES for cool.  Would you do that?

In the meantime Phil has also made some interesting challenges.

Wendy and I head to TLC on Monday and I’ve been thinking of buying 8 eye patches to give to the other DC’s so they won’t be envious.  What do you think?



Blogger has created a whole new set of menus for changing my blog layout.  Some of them are quite exciting and the ability to customize is now available.  This is why so many “blogspot” bloggers were moving to wordpress.  So a big shout out for a huge improvement to blogspot.

What I’ll change to will need some thought but change I am going to do.

I need to give a huge compliment to Karen for her work with the management team of Community Services Calgary!  They have made some amazing plans and progress in a very short period of time.  This is exciting stuff.

The eye patch – a new fashion statement

Last night I had the TV on in the background and turned to TCM, one of my favourite channels.  They were playing True Grit with John Wayne – who plays a rough and tumble, rifle totting western tough guy!  He is also without sight in one eye and wears an eye patch.  It’s black like mine!

For lunch today we decided to order a meal from the Vietnamese restaurant across the street.  It is under new management and the place is cleaner and the food is just as good or better.  I told Wendy that I would run across and grab it.

I was wearing my eye patch.

A man driving a van pulled over, rolled down his window and shouted to me: “hey, can you tell me where you got your eye patch?”

I think I’ve started a new fashion statement.

A few thoughts about us as a family and our interests.
