Exercising again

By 2 0

I started waking up at 6 AM again this week to exercise and get to work early.

Last week I tried a different approach.  I stayed up until 2:30 AM and 3:30 AM two nights to get things done.  I got a lot of reading and learning done.  But it’s hard to get to work on time.

Exercising is not that hard.  It’s all in my head.  If I convince myself that I want to do it, I do it.

I’ve always liked balloons, but this is too strange

I’ve always thought balloons were cool, especially when the clown would twist and turn them and make them into an animal or something.

But this is just a little too strange, even for me. 

Impressive!  But strange.

The Patriots lost the SuperBowl

By 4 0

Unbelievable.  After going 18–0, the Patriots lose the most important of them all.  Amazing. 

There were dozens of us crowded around the big screen TV at my sister’s house in my home town of Milford, Massachusetts and there was a whole lot of screaming during the last few minutes.

It was a good game and I’m amazed that the Giants were the team to topple them.  All of us were shocked and disappointed.  But the one thing we agreed upon was that it was better to be beat by Eli than Payton.

For all of you that want to complain, gripe, or tease me, feel free to comment below.  Just remember that the Cowboys and Colts weren’t even in Arizona this week.

If you are a fellow-Patriot fan, feel free to comment below as well.

I still think this decade’s Patriots are the best franchise ever in the NFL.

I learned to ski in Mount Cranmore this week

By 4 0

Sandy and I flew in to Massachusetts via Skybus last Saturday and my mom and dad picked us up. 

On Monday we took my nieces, Becky and Kayla Bonnell to New Hampshire.  We wanted to do something fun with them.  So on Tuesday we went over to Mount Cranmore.  We got a full day pass which included equipment rental, lift ticket, and even a two-hour lesson.

My wife knew how to ski, but my nieces and I had never done it before.  In the beginning, there was a lot of falling, as this video shows…

But after our two-hour lesson, we all started doing better.
