Prices In the High 90's
Thursday June 2,
I hit a new
high yesterday (let's call it a new low) when it cost me $56.50 to fill
up my car. It was only the second time ever that I had put more than $50
in and I eclipsed the old mark by $4. My low gas light wasn't even on. I
do take premium but it was 'cheapie' Thursday only 98.6 cents. A good
thing I have a little stock in Esso (by chance). Last weekend, in
Lachute gas was only 84.6 cents. The fluctuation is obviously all
contrived and calculated and has absolutely nothing to do with oil
barrel prices. I won't drive to Lachute to get gas but take a look at
idiot. There is no logic in his crusade.

New Weight Loss
Challenge Start June 1st - That's Today
people asked me about the weight loss charts I have been keeping up
since February. It was just a couple of personal challenges that were
documented weekly. This provided me with enough incentive to drop about
20 pounds and a couple of people dropped it along with me. Lots of
people told me that it easy to lose it (especially for a guy) but that
keeping it off would be harder. So I came up with an idea. On the first
of every month, starting June 1, I will monitor to make sure my pounds
are not coming back plus instead of my original 199 goal I will attempt
to lower that even more to something more akin to a 5 foot 10 frame. As
with my last challenge, I invite anyone to join in and I will chart the
progress for the next year. It will be anonymous (give me a nick name)
and instead of being actual weight, the June 1st weigh-in will be
considered ground zero. So everyone starts at 0, On July 1st, send me
another e-mail with the deviation from 0 (hopefully minus something).
Join in, what have you got to lose? Except having to go shop for new clothes.
I have a couple of takers already. Tweety, Slim and I are the plotted on
the chart. Don't forget it's anonymous and no one's gonna know your
actual weight and your target could be 0, In other words no weight gain
over the year.
For anyone who hasn't figured it out, you click on the scale at the top
to get there. The chart is now updated.
Holy Family Car
(May 28th) the second annual Holy Family Car Rally will be
held. Last year's event was a
big success and was very well run. This year promises to be the same.
One thing to remember though: the driver should drive (and watch the
road) and the navigator should do the rest. Good luck to all the
Tartan Spring Open
- Worst Weather Ever?
Sunday May 22,2005
for pictures. It was way too cold to take any. Some guys even braved the
weather in shorts. It was a three club wind sometimes and the ball felt
like rocks. Despite all of that, almost everybody showed up and played 18
holes. Mike O'Neil's 80 captured the 58th Annual Spring Open
title by one stroke over Darren Johnson. Click

The Tartan Pub looks like it will be the unofficial underground headquarters for
people who didn't get their tickets for the Meet & Greet and the Dance. Don't
forget, doors open to the non ticket holders at 9:00pm at the Sheraton Laval. The
cost is $20. Remember the breakfast on Sunday at the Senior Men's Club (the old
Masonic Temple on Cedar).

Silver Screen Makes a Two-Mountains Comeback
Saturday May 14, 2005
After well over 30
years of absence (except in some select homes), the Cinema is back in town. On
May 18, 2005, Cinemas Guzzo will be opening it's massive entrance to the public.
Surely of the 14 showing rooms, we will should have an ample share of English
movies (unlike the Mathers 16 Complex). I imagine a few people will not find
time to go during its first weekend but it's a nice thing to see an investment
of this type so close to home. Clicking on the Guzzo logo will bring back
memories of days gone by. If someone has a picture of the original theatre in
St-Eustache-sur-le-lac that eventually turned into the Luna bar, send me a scan
and I will post it. Just in case you didn't know the Guzzo was built in the old

Oh noooo!!!! Vacation and
American Food Takes Its Toll
Monday May 2, 2005
This Monday's weigh
in was a disaster for me. Last week, we spent some time in Washington DC which
means American food in American portions. I actually weighed myself on the scale
at the Smithsonian's Air and Space Museum. It wasn't air and space and I didn't
think I should get undressed in the exhibit to reduce the load. The good news
was that I would weigh 552 lbs on Jupiter where my knees couldn't take it.
Anyway, check out the progress by clicking the scale. Do it now because
it could be gone soon.

Finally Gets His Goat
Saturday April 30,
Deschamps finally got his wish on Saturday at his surprise
25th birthday party.
His gift was a 45 kilogram goat which he quickly named
Behildamule. Mike Fitzmorris
presented him with his prized possession when he arrived at the party
and they were instant buddies. It was only later that Steve was
delivered the disappointing news that the goat was actually only rented
and that the money collected for him was not to feed the goat but to
help pay for his NFLD trip this summer. Happy birthday
Steve and may you and
Behildamule be forever friends and may the smell leave Mike and Emma's
house before Steve 26th birthday. More pictures of the goat and other
stuff tomorrow morning.
