Finally some Oly action

Well, the Ad-lympics are finally underway. The coca cola torch relay blew though Courtenay weeks ago leaving no school age child without a bottle of the real thing in hand. The same diabetic substance banned from the school vending machine. Steve was nice and dropped by the legislature.... a first I'm told. But hey, he had a good speech and nowhere to present it... either that or he just wanted to get a look at what a working government looked like. Personally, I think he was here to join Gordo for the little publicized semi-annual meeting of Egotistical Liars Anonymous. Mike Campbell, an economic analyst that I used to like, was on a rant the other day about people that are always critical. What the hell was he thinking and who knows anybody like that? Back to the couch to watch some biathlon, I say.

It's been awhile since the last big fire on the island... so we were due for a doosey. Lots of propane tanks and other unknown sources of explosions highlighted a garage fire that consumed several vehicles, (one a newer Lexus I'm told). Source of fire is unknown, but a few people had theories.

Straw Bale House Update: A few loose ends to tie up in the plumbing and electrical departments along with a major clean-up.... and we're officially (almost) ready for drywall for the interior-interior walls... as opposed the interior exterior walls, (which will be plastered). Drywall labour is expensive, but it's one of the few things that I don't have an inclination to attempt.

I bit the bullet and invested in a new digital SLR camera.... evidence that I've learned how to turn it on will be posted here at a later date.
