You know it has been cold when...

It was a beautiful fall here and we love to talk and think about weather, so here I am doing so with others that might not be as enthused.

In the winter of 1994/95 the ground was frozen solid on the October 15. I think that was the year we saw -50C which was new to me. Cars don't work so well then and they make noises I can't even begin describe.

This year we were still in the arms of fall at the end of November and then, like a steel door slamming shut, the cold...

Big boa gets a big meal

The Great White North

This was a tremendously cold run. I was surprised how much this six mile jaunt took out of me. I think the temperature was -30C and the wind chill made it feel like -43C which is maybe a bit much to venture out like this, but you only live once right? And besides, I really want to make a dent in my half marathon time and that date is coming whether I train or not.

I'm supposed to race a 5km this weekend. That should hurt.

This is what stupid looks like.

Film night with Vergès

Posted 02-07-08 at 12:44 PM by Ian
Updated 02-07-08 at 12:49 PM by Ian (typo and catagory)
Went into the city with a friend for film night to see Terror's Advocate. We hadn't been all winter and we both like independent film a lot. The film last night dove tailed into a Noam Chomsky book I was given as a gift recently called What We Say Goes very well. It was a story of Jacques Vergès. The film mostly consisted of interviews with him and those that knew him. It was an outstanding look at a history I had little acquaintance with. I did not even know the name Vergès and my mind was...
