Canada Day One
Friday July 8,2005
Kevin Deschamps I got a couple pictures of Canada Day celebrations in
2mo. Thanks KD.
The Boys Are Back
From the Rock
Tuesday July 5,
are back from their first visit to Newfoundland. Steve, Mike, Dale and Joey are
seen below enjoying one of the attractions. They are actively promoting my
website. Thanks boys. The arrow in the pictures is obviously pointing in the
wrong direction. Dildo coincidently is not that far from Come-By-Chance. Maybe
one of the boys can send me a brief description of their trip so that everyone
can read about their adventure.
Missing the Canada Day Celebration
apologize for not getting to the Canada Day festivities and taking
pictures to post. Next year, I will try to get more involved. On all
counts the entertainment and fireworks were very good. If anyone has a
good picture, send it to me and I will post it.

Coming Soon: My 10,000th
Visitor Tuesday June 28,
just over 6 months that I have got my own website with my own domain
name and no pop-up adds. (I was using free Geocities before). Although
June is obviously slower than May, I think that my 10,000 visit will be
coming up soon. Officially I am over 12,000 but the counter on my front
page doesn't seem to work all the time. Nevertheless, if you are lucky
enough to be my 10k visitor, I may have a special prize for you. (Mike M
won my 1000th prize which is still accessible under the counter.) No
cheating though as I can trace if you are doing refreshes to get to
If you are visitor 10k, drop me an e-mail and not that I don't
trust you, but a screen capture would be nice. Alt-Prt Screen puts the active
screen in the clipboard that you can paste into an e-mail. Good luck. Below is a chart that I don't
really understand but it shows that I had 2665 visits in May.
Summer's Finally Here But
You Don't Know Where To Go?
Saturday June 25,
If you are
like Bernie, Mike or Richard, you probably don't know where to go to
this summer. Click on various parts of the sign for a few suggestions.
This year, the
15th annual softball tournament will be for charity in memory of 'Rocky'
Holt. For more info click
If you know
someone with an LG cellular phone that uses a 3.7V Lithium battery like
one, drop me an e-mail. I found one and you can have it, free.
My Team Wins The Our Company Golf
Friday June 17,
to believe, but our company golf tournament was played on Friday. As I
drove up north to the tournament in a constant downpour, I was wondering
what we were going to do for a whole day being rained out of the
tournament. Miraculously, the rain stopped as I arrived at Gray Rocks'
La Bete course. Although it did eventually rain on and off, it wasn't
enough to stop anyone. It didn't stop our team from squeezing to a win
by beating two other teams by one stroke at minus 6. The tough part of
this tournament is the maximum 5 drives per player. Our drive strategy
obviously worked and everyone contributed towards the win with our
bogeyless round. Though I have teamed up with Ed to win many times in
the past 12 years, this is a new team and we'll have to defend the title
next year. To make things even sweeter, Chantal won the big evening door
prize of $2500 to fly anywhere Air Canada flies to.
Tartan Pub One
Night Lobster Festival a Hit
except for the
Thursday June 16,
you an update soon.
Here are a few pictures of the lobster supper at the Tartan Pub.
It's Been a Slow
News Week (2 weeks actually)
Wednesday June 15,
If you are
a frequent visitor, you may have noticed a lack of updates. I wish I
could say it was the weather that was to good to be inside updating my
web site. Well the last couple of days have been horrible. On the
positive side, the flowers are doing well. btw my link to Montreal
weather is now the Environment Canada logo at the top. Don't forget that
the icon on the top have links attached to them. The city logo for
example links to the official Two Mountains web site. Tonight is a
lobster night at the Tartan with two full steamed lobsters for $25.
Friday is my company golf tournament at Gray Rocks so I will be away and
you probably won't see another update until late Saturday or Sunday. I
promise some news regarding the Wyder Cup as Wobbit is visiting from
Boston next week and should be announcing his Team USA line up. I will
try to post more pictures on Sunday. For now, get your bib ready for
lobster and browse the archives.
Mike McKeown Aces
the Tremblant Weekend
Sunday June 5,
McKeown's ball on the 135 yard 5th hole at le Manitou touched three
things. 1) It was sitting on a tee. 2) It got hit by a very good 8 iron.
3) It hit the bottom of the cup (no bounce). From the tee, the ball just
disappeared, so no one knew it had gone in until we stepped up to the
green and only saw one ball (don't ask about the other 2). Mike's ball
had landed straight in the hole and broke the plastic cup liner and had
made quite the ball mark on the way down. This is Mike's second career
ace, the first one at le Victorien on November 5, 2000. Congrats to Mike and
here is his scorecard. Stay tuned
for pictures of the weekend to be posted on the My Golf Page link or
here if you are lazy.
Reunite To Celebrate Lana's Milestone
Thursday June 2, 2005
a family reunion that you don't see very often. When Alicia arrived in Two
Mountains tonight, it completed the set. Everyone will be partying
this weekend with the highlight taking place on Saturday. I won't say which birthday
is being celebrated but Garold just hit the same milestone back in December.
Happy Birthday Lana!
