Day 823
People of the internet, more lift locks!
After the market we took Bender for a walk along one of the many lift locks that run down the Otonabee River between Lakefield and Peterborough. I took a bunch of shots but really this was the only interesting one that worked out.
It’s looking down at the damn as water rushes through it and the panorama mode on the phone did an awesome job capturing the splashing and turbulence of the water below.
Today I took a cool photo at Lock 24.

Day 821

People of the internet, it’s Thursday so you know what that means!

Time to look back at an old blog post, and in this case, a very old one!

This is taken from Day 46 when I spent the longest time ever holding a spot at the front of the stage to see Bruce Springsteen up close and personal. I think I claimed that area at around 5:30pm and he wasn’t on stage to start things up until close to 8:30pm.

It was an amazing experience to see The Boss put on a show like that and would definitely recommend Floor Seats to anyone who has the bladder for it!

EVERYDAY THROWBACK: Today I saw The Boss in Toronto.

Holy balls that’s from 2012.

Day 818
People of the internet, Halloween!
Now that Thanksgiving is officially over I can start doing some Halloween themed posts. To start, I already put my girlfriend through Evil Dead II this weekend and we will definitely see how many more horror films she can endure…
Friday the 13th? Halloween? The Exorcist? The Shining?
We’ll see…
Also, the Halloween decorations are up and looking sharp! I’m going to wait a week until all the leaves have fallen to do some cobwebs and a few final touches but I think things are turning out well.
Today I talked about getting ready for Halloween.

Day 818

People of the internet, caving!

On Saturday I took my sister Claire and her fiancee Mike to the Warsaw Caves. It took a little coercing but we got Claire in there!

We all had a blast exploring, finding dead ends and getting dirty trying to find the way out. Mike and I did a long route at the end to finish it all off, going from Cave 1 and staying underground all the way to Cave 5.

Tons of fun and afterwards we all felt a bit tired from all the climbing up and down the rocks.

This weekend I took Claire and Mike to the Warsaw Caves.

Day 817
People of the internet, Thanksgiving weekend.
It’s been a busy one, my sister and her fiance are up staying with me and yesterday we spent a full day out at Warsaw Caves. There’s a whole video for it and I’m hoping to have it wrapped up by tonight, so in the meantime…
Cookies!
Today I baked pumpkin spice cookies.

Day 814

People of the internet, dolphins!

Thursday is here, which means it’s another day that I get to go back and reminisce about an old blog post. This time we’re going back to Belize!

The most incredible part of the video, to me at least, was jumping in the water and being able to hear the dolphin’s clicking before I saw them. As I swam around the boat to get to the pod my ears were full of all the hissing and clicking of these mammals out in the wild.

That was amazing.

EVERYDAY THROWBACK: Today I went snorkeling at Gladden Spit.

Day 813
People of the internet, another cool store in Peterborough!
This one is called Planet of Stuff and it just opened over the summer and I had yet to check it out. So today on the drive home from work I popped in and had a quick look around.
So much vintage stuff from the 80’s and 90’s, we’re talking Batman, Star Trek, Jurassic Park, E.T. and anything else you could think of. Definitely going to have to take a better walk through another day and make a few purchases.
The posts haven’t been too exciting lately, the weather up here has been dreadful this last week! This morning I was really pumped for the lunar eclipse and woke up early to catch a glimpse of it but (of course) it was overcast.
What can you do.
Today I checked out the ‘Planet of Stuff’ in Peterborough.

Day 811
People of the internet, a new LEGO custom creation!
I spent much of this cold and brisk weekend putting this spaceship together and trying new configurations of it’s build. Finally, today I think I have it completed. Just working on trying to put together a cool mini-figure that would suit the whole look.
It’s a police themed spacecraft, pretty much your go-to LEGO build for anyone out there with a ton of grey pieces. A little inspired from Blade Runner, a bit taken from Back to the Future and nods stolen from Star Wars.
Once it’s complete I think I’m going to bug someone with a light box and a DSLR to shoot proper pictures for the LEGO Ideas site.
Today I nearly finished a new custom LEGO build.

Day 809
People of the internet, the old Gameboy.
While tidying the house this afternoon I came across this huge hunk of retro glory from my childhood. So what better thing to do than dig out four AA batteries and see if it still worked.
The battery contacts were a little corroded but with a few adjustments I got it to fire up. The Nintendo logo scrolled down then screen and my ears were then hit with the original 8-bit Tetris theme song.
It was awesome.
Today I put AA batteries back in the 1989 Nintendo Gameboy and it still worked.
