I'm a convert. I bitched and whined about schools, health care, and a multitude of other sacrifices we made, but when Neil Young got up and sang, that was it for me. Huge Neil fan, and if it cost 9 or 10 billion dollars to see him on the world stage, it was worth it.

Oh, and being best in the world at hockey ain't bad either.

Morning coffee is the highlight of my day. It's downhill all day after that.

Rush, Loverboy, Trooper... oh boy, did you ever date yourself!

(Personally, I was waiting for the Chilliwack reunion!)

Bahaha... Chilliwack? I can remember sitting in the back seat of my Dad's brown 80's T-Bird, listening to them bad boys.
