Tunnel of Cans

Something wierd has been constructed close to our work here.

It appears to be a tunnel made out of empty cans, is it a sculpture?

Here are the pics

I've been Clubbed to death

For the past few weeks I've been listening to music from Clubbed to Death courtesy of Angus.

It's worth a listen, check it out.

Road Trip #2

This weekend we are off to Ottawa for the weekend.

Not really a big road trip, only 2 hours but a road trip.

On the journey we will be stopping at a LCBO for booze, mainly Cider.

Insane songs

Been listening to one of my favourite crazy songs - Charlton Heston by Stump from the album A Fierce Pancake - have a read of the lyrics:

The pyramids were in construction
The pharoah glowed with satisfaction
But then to his immense surprise
His empire fell before his eyes
A hundred thousand busy slaves
Downed their tools and stood and stared

The Red seawalls stood like a canyon
The pharoah pulled up in his wagon
And saw within those walls of glass
A herd of whales go racing past
A hundred thousand fishy tales
Crossed his mind about the day

Then Charlton Heston put his vest on

The broken tablets had been mended
The golden calf had been up-ended
And old folk sitting round the fire
Would talk of voices from the sky
Babies sailing down the Nile
The recipe for locust pie
A hundred thousand frogs per mile
We'd always ask them to describe

How Charlton Heston put his vest on

Thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal
Shalt not commit adultery
Boils the size of fifty pee
Lights! Camel! Action!
Bushes that refuse to burn
See these sandals hardly worn
Raining blood, raining bread
The night we painted Egypt red
Thou shalt not covet, shalt not lie
Thou shalt not bonk your neighbour's wife
The recipe for egg fried lice
A hundred ways to kill a fly
Love your daddy, love your mummy
Put your bread in milk and honey
Loved his fish, he did, he did
Never beat the wife and kids
Slouch though desert, slouch through sand
Until we reach the promised land
Thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal
Shalt not commit adultery
Boils the size of fifty pee
Lights! Camel! Action!

Who Farted???? - Wisnae me!!!!!

Very early Monday morning (around 2am) we got woken by a lovely smell of Skunk, it was so bad we almost thought there was one in the house.

For those who haven't experienced the joys of a skunk smell, it's quite a unique smell and I can't really describe it to you.

Let's just say it's not pleasant.....OK!

Costco, Hockey, haircut and a bike

Last weekend the weather was good, so we were in bike buying mood in order to embrace the good summer weather to follow. (Hopefully)

Started with a trip to Costco, not to buy a bike but to do our usual monthly shop. Then it was over to see Mel playing Hockey which her team won the game.

Then we started to look for bikes, first with Canadian Tire which sucked, mainly because they had nothing it my size and they looked cheap'n'nasty. Then we went to Wal-Mart where it almost the same story but they where only showing the wheel sizes not the frame sizes. (How dumb is that?). After visiting a few local shops we found a shop who was prepared to let me try one out and offer 25% discounts on any addtional item we buy from him in the future. He was so good even Jenn got a bike for herself.

The weather was still good I even rode the bike home from Baie D'urfe back home which took me about 20 minutes and I got my first flat tyre.
