Eagle River

More new things. For all those bugging me, yes, I’ll try to keep this somewhat current, and <gasp> people actually read this, why, I have no idea, stalkers I guess…
New pics up of the close attraction of Eagle River, Ontario’s longest suspension bridge, kind of neat.
As well, I always wanted to be a critic, so I’m going to start putting up a movie section. Movies I have seen recently, review them, and put up lists of what I think everyone should see. Keep an eye out, I’ll put that page up soon. Other than that, summer is here, time to get out, get off that computer, and enjoy the world a bit =)

Blading and games

Summer is looking good, been out blading, taking walks, it’s been nice out. Good time of the year, as it seems people start coming out and everyone is just more friendly. Mind you, I can not really talk to them as I fly by on blades! Also got accepted into the Star Wars Galaxies┬áBETA. So I have been playing that a bit. It is from the gang that brought you Everquest. Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and both parents Birthdays coming!

SCA again?

Been looking at getting back into the SCA, we will see how the summer goes. I have no idea where the next 6 months will take me. Pat and I each made 11 gallons of mead, so who knows? Still at the MNR, things are interesting there, lots of software development. Have some new things for the site soon, keep your eyes open!

Jeannette’s Father

Just found out Jeannette’s father passed away this past Thursday. I’m very sorry to hear this, and for those of you that know her, you know how to get a hold of her to express your condolences. For those of you that don’t know her, she was my former fiance, and you can see her all throughout my pictures, the random pics above will occasionally show her. Sorry Jeannie, hope you are alright.

MHS Yearbooks

Not much new on the site here. Just plugging away at work, which pretty much has turned into a software development job. We go to the courts with MTO this Thursday, wish us luck, the morons, grrrr. As most of you know, most of my childhood was in Wawa. I was contacted through Classmates (ya the ones with annoying pop-ups) and asked by a gentleman to borrow my old High School Yearbooks. They have this site going MHS Yearbooks in preparation for MHS’s 2004 50th anniversary. Summer is upon us soon, hopefully it will start shaping up like those I’ve had in the past. It seems to keep snowing here in Thunder Bay.

Life continues on

It’s March already? Egad… Well into the new job. It is ok, the GIS is tedious, and not as interesting as I remember, but the coding is pretty cool, but it’s Visual Basic! HA. I wish I could do more web work. Catherine is gone soon, and we may have to find a new roomie for the summer. D&D going strong although I finally see an end to the Brapian Campaign. The next 6 months should be some of the most interesting in my life, as many things could happen soon. I do miss the gang at TSB, but I have to try a few other things out in life before I settle right?

New job

Well almost 5 years and my days at Toronto School of Business are over. I’ve accepted a position at the Ministry of Natural Resources as a Geomatics Technician. I will be doing GIS, programming and possibly some training. Big move for me, as it is only contract, and hopefully will turn out to be something more. I also applied to teacher’s college for this fall, so I have many options open to me at this time. Wish me luck
