We really need to start doing more than getting free Timmie’s coffee and shutting off the house lights for an hour before the Habs games on Earth Day. I’m grading humans with an F this year again.
It almost makes me sad to admit that this perfectly describe the code on my first few sites and ASP Classic apps. Ah the 90’s!

This is a pretty amazing video of the sperm whale checking out a deep sea robotic sub. What is more impressive is the how the team of Super Nerds in the control room react when they first realize what it is.

Today marked the official beginning of this year’s route to 100 commuting days. Despite the picture above, it was a very good ride in albeit a little cooler than I usually prefer. Top layer included: Merino wool base layer, cycling jersey and nylon cycling jacket. Bottom layer included: Cycle shorts, Merino wool XC Ski socks, and MEC Mercury tights. Extremities covered by XC ski gloves, tight skull-cap and GORE shoe covers. As I always say, there is no bad weather just bad clothing.
As with every year, I like to put out a Post Easter Lachine Bike Path scouting report. So here goes:
- Lakeshore to 55th Ave in Lachine: All clear although a little sand / gravel at places.
- 55th to Fur Trade Museum: All clear, some wet / icy patches that are easily passable.
- Fur Trade to Info Centre bridges: Large snow accumulation, must be walked across for anything narrower than 32mm tires.
- First Ave to Dollard Bridge: The initial path is a mess but clears up nicely after the public toilet, mini soccer fields. Dollard bridge is wet / icy but passible.
- Bridge to Bridge Sections: Some snow accumulation in the shaded first section and the rest is clear but as has large amount of twigs covering the path. Should be fine for 25mm and wider tires.
- St-Gabriel Lock to Atwater market: Very clear and mostly dry.
- Atwater Market to Wellington: Some snow accumulation on the south side paths and in the underpasses. easily passable.
- Wellington to Peel: The North side path is still closed due to construction of the new condos. I made my way to Notre Dame and then up Peel at my earliest convenience. The City and Federal Parks commission needs to sort out this section ASAP as there are many new condos going up and cycling in this area in simply not safe.
So there you go, there is a rain forecast for the next two days and a warm weekend that should wash away and clear up whatever is left over. I therefore declare the commuting season open!
Damn this makes me so proud to have grown up in this Great White North. Our national pass time never sounded so beautiful. I can still hear the puck dropping on the Windermere Ice Rink from 2 blocks away.
Yup! The ultimate DB detector!
It would also appear that a huge dip in Strava posts for the whole week, a 6 hours (
check in) wait at the walk-in clinic and a Foursquat crown of the radiology lab won’t suffice either. But a $20 squiggle from the doctor that looked you over for about 45 seconds is how this while system works.
Who even has the time to figure anything out anymore. Now I need to go buy some more pins for my timers.

Quite possibly the best ever description of shrimp in the universe today!
