Toronto

I just got back from a whirlwind 3 day trip to Toronto with the Caro High School Choir. Overall I would say it was a good time. No one died, we all came back in one piece, and I didn't have to tape any kids to the ceiling of the bus, though I think the charter company would have been a little upset about that.

Our Itinerary was definitely jam packed and I am sure that helped with keeping the kids in line. Here is what it looked like.

Day 1 - Leave the school, Lunch in Sarnia and some play time at a place called Playdium. It is kinda like Gameworks only not as big. After that leave for the hotel. On arrival get changed and head to The Old Spaghetti Factory for Dinner. Immediately following dinner head to the Princess of Wales Theatre for the evening performance of Phantom of the Opera. Return to hotel, sleep.

Day 2 - Leave hotel, head to Rogers Center "Skydome" for a tour, immediately after cross the park and head to the top of the CN Tower. CN TowerAfter the CN tower, It's over to the Ontario Science Centre for Lunch and an afternoon of exploring a hands on museum which concludes with the Omnimax video presentation of Wired to Win. After the video it was off to dinner at Medieval times.

Day 3 - Started with checkout from the hotel and a trip to Casa Loma. After an extensive self guided tour of the castle, we headed off to the Hard Rock Cafe for lunch. After browsing their selection of memorabilia and having a bacon cheeseburger, we were on our way to the last stop of the trip. We Will Rock You, at the Canon Theatre.

All in all I must say it was a good trip.

I love the sound of the rain in the trees. I am just sitting here on the couch surfing the web in the pouring down rain. It is soo cool to look out the window and realize that for the first time in my 25 yrs that these are our trees. Not our landlords, not my parents, Precia and Me, our trees. The sound is very soothing, more so than staring at a computer screen but what else is a geek like me going to do at 8:00 on a Thursday night.

Joe came over tonight so we had brats, we were going to cook them on the grill but then it started pouring down rain, and I didn't really want to roll out the awning as it was getting windy too. So we came back inside and cooked the on the Foreman grill, just as good but not near as fun.

We chatted a bit about life in general watched some movie trailers. It was fun. Now I am just waiting for Precia, she should be home soon, she had to play at Graduation today for some kids that will be singing. I hope she is having a good time. Until then, more…

Hmmm

Well, it's nice to see this is still here.  But then again why wouldn't it be.  After all doesn't google keep everything?

I am not really sure what to put here anymore, that is something that I will have to think about.  I have definitely fallen out of practice with posting here.  I am also not really using Facebook or Google+ at this point, so maybe I can convince myself that this will be the place to put things.  I will have to take a look around some more and see If anything has changed, ie Are there static pages?  This might be a good place to build out a bit of a portfolio, I also like the idea of putting little snippets of useful information here so that I can find them again easier later.  So we'll see what happens.
