slow sports night. it helped in a way. had a lot of running around to do after work. watching my weekly racing show - inside nextel cup racing with michael waltrip, johnny benson and ken schrader and hosted by allan bestwick. the show reviews the weekend's racing, previews the upcoming race weekend, and has the hot seat feature. the hot seat is where someone in nascar (driver, crew chief or whatever) comes in and gets "grilled" by the "expert" panel of mikey, johnny and kenny. the show is on speed channel every monday at 5 & 9. there's even a speed fan q&a. very good show. more later.

i check out TROOPER's website today. talk about updated. left a very good impression on me BIG TIME. the website - at least to me - seemed more organized than it before. not that it wasnt organized in its old format, but i can find things better now. hmmm maybe i should send them an email and tell them how much i like it. i say that as im listening to trooper now. cant go wrong with canada's #1 party band. i got to see them last summer on the first night of klondike days. awesome night that was. more to come soon.

MARCH MADNESS IS COMING! to unconfuse what i just said (those who dont follow sports) march madness is another name for the ncaa final four basketball tournament. it all starts thursday on cbs. im taking duke bluedevils. ive liked duke since my early high school days.every year i hope they win. they won 3 times since i first started high school in 1990-91. geez that long? im old.

ive almost beaten my cold. the last two or three days were rough. ive had to stop to blow my nose every few minutes at work. at least until i had neo citrin last night before bed. today i got rid of most of it. couple more cups of neo citrin may help (and a little prayer). taking the bus home today was a "cough free" trip home. thursday and friday coming home, all i did was cough. i would cough for a bit then silence, then cough some more. that kind of trip. last night i felt pretty wiped to the point, that i had to phone ray (darren knows him) to cancel our get together to watch trooper at reds. lousy cold. im okay now.hopefully better tomorrow. and thats that

HOLY MACKINAW!!! 3 hours of prairie pickin' tonite. a great surprise. prairie pickin' is usually an hour long, between 7 & 8pm on cjsr fm88. tonie is of rarity since minister faust - the host of THE PHANTOM PYRAMID - couldn't be in tonite, so prairie pickin' is 3 hours. doug ritchie and rob baker are the hosts of this show (doug left after the first hour for a previos engagement). all is fun though. rob is still a great host. darren and i sometimes think robs on drugs or something during the show, hes gets that excited.

my room is a marvel to look at - maybe. my room is lined with sports stats and pictures. championship winners and olympic posters and emblems (mini ones thats printable). even banners and licence plates on the ceiling. darren has seen it. more to come.

the most interesting (and possibly strange) thing i saw while watching global news @ 5:30. claire martin (our weather girl) showed the viewers an interesting "beer cooler" from nova scotia (they had a major snowstorm last month - got 95cm). in the doorway you could see beer cans and beer bottles in the snowdrift. the homeowners had decided totake advantage of the deep snow and "invent" their beer cooler. quite the sight. looking forward to prairie pickin' and survivor tonite. a fun thursday for sure.

today i found myself watching "the red green show." great canadian show. only missing two things - 2L bottle of pop & a bag of m&m's. mmmmmmmmm tasty. the m&m's connection goes back to when the show first started. seemed like when red green was on, there was a bag of m&m's. hmm i could use a bag of m&ms right now.
