That was about a good a game as you could ask for. I was a little disappointed in the officiating .. especially the linesman nearly taking out the Canadian defense when the US hit the post. The penalties in women's hockey seem pretty random a lot of times. The men's semi-final was also a very well played game on both sides. Brilliant goal-tending at both ends of the rink. That game was well ref'ed. Now you know why the NHL doesn't want to send the players next Olympics ... Makes the regular season product look pretty poor. I sure wish they would have gone to international ice size when they rebuilt a lot of the arenas in the early 90's. The players are so big and fast now, probably part of the reason there are so many injuries (concussions).Hope all is well with you. How is the writing going?
Well... not much hurt..!
Was scaried for the first 10 seconds... then ran out of the office building... and still standing on the sidewalk, it's been shaking for an extra 40 seconds (rough estimate) or so... then got back inside... ;)
It was a bit messier at home, though... few things got off the shelves..! ;-) But again, no much hurt..! Nothing compare to Haïti..!!!
So I can't really complain..!
Thanks for caring and asking, though..
Ottawa - The Can-Am League announced today that Ottawa's professional baseball club will operate with a new name for the 2009 season and beyond. The team was known as the Rapidz in 2008, and the League had recently announced that the team would be known as the Rapids for the 2009 season.
"We had a very successful contest to find a name for the team last year," said Miles Wolff, Commissioner of the Can-Am League. "With over 1,000 entries, our choice of Rapids was well-received. However, new ownership in May, a change in the name to Rapidz and the dissolution of the team in September, caused confusion and doubt in the Ottawa-Gatineau region. It became apparent to our management that a fresh start was needed, and a new name will be chosen."
A name will be selected in the next few weeks and suggestions will be welcomed at
until Friday, Feb. 6 at noon.
Ottawa will open its 2009 regular season at home on Thursday, May 28 against the New Jersey Jackals for a four-game series, before hosting the Atlantic City Surf for three games to complete their initial seven-game homestand.
I hope you're doing well in this Holidays season...
Yesterday, I've had good thoughts for you since we've been out of power for a couple of hours... ;-) I hope everything by now everything is back to normal in MA...
No worries Jer! There is nothing for which you have to apologise.. All in all, jokes can take you away from the everyday routine... ;).. The situation here is something unusual .... The state faces the rage and the angry of the students (who demonstrate on streets against the irrational shot by the police) from the one side, and the mad, crazy etc anarchists who destroy everything without any reason from the other side.... Prays that the riots will end soon (and police will protect sufficiently people's properties at the future......)
simply google [eye exercises] frees stuff, no point in paying for free info. some vids on that search too. Depending on condition of your eye(s), sounds like just regular age issues. One key is you should if focusing in a stagnant gaze like a screen or book, it's important to work the depth perception muscles. Near and far rapid focus and reminding yourself to stop occasionally. Other exercise displayed as well.
Hey Jer.. I used to to the catskills out of kingston when I lived there was some of the best trout fishing around. Esopus river and tributarys. Used to camp up in the addy's when younger and not so built up! LOL like most of is inaccessible anyway. Nice to hear that you write and read. I find that eyes exercises help me a lot. I'm 56 and wear prescriptions sometimes where I used to all the time. Still need mags for close up and reading though.
Hey it's pretty fun on the chat forum. Been years since I've met a more interesting bunch all in one place.
Oh Jer, I'm so sorry... I hope that fact that you mended your relationship with her helps you in dealing with your loss. Always hold on to that and the good times you had with her. She got to see Obama get elected so I'm sure she went with a smile on her face! We're all here if you need us. Big Hugs!!!
