Niagara Falls

What’s this?  Another vacation for the great webmaster?  That is correct, I am on a road trip to Niagara Falls.  It’s on the way to Chicago, where I will be spending Thanksgiving this year.  Yes, it is on the way, believe me.

Weird Things about America

I’m not sure how truthful this is, or what’s going on in it, but it’s really a fun video to watch.  I can see what he’s talking about, at least mostly, except the French part, that makes me think this was recorded awhile ago, but it doesn’t look like it.  Also, yes, I watch  Die Hard every Christmas.  Regular as clockwork…or a time lock

Canada is Pretty Too

With all this talk about my trip to Alaska, and the build up I have for it so far, it’s hard to forget our neighbor to the north.  Also, me being a die hard American, it’s hard to even fathom that I’d recommend visiting another sovereign nation.  Well, when it’s free, and when it’s apart of the same mountain range that makes up some of the beautiful parts of America, I’ll do it.  But don’t you think for a moment I recommend you move there, that’s crazy talk that is.

Banff National Park is located about 80 miles from Calgary, Albarta, Canada.  It’s just as beautiful as Glacier National Park, located just over the border in the good ol’ U.S.A.

Banff

Intrepid Travel is hosting a contest for an adventure into the Canadian Rockies.  It’s free, enter it, it will be amazing, trust me.

Here’s a video of time-lapses of Banff, hopefully that should convince you to enter the contest at least.

The Skeleton

This Olympics I’m all about the sliding sports – Bobsleigh, Luge, Skeleton.  One thing that I didn’t know about Skeleton is that the athletes can choose to decorate their helmets with awesome designs.

Here’s my favorite:

Katie Uhlaender

Katie Uhlaender’s Eagle and Stripes helmet.

The Brain helmet is pretty cool too:

John Fairbairn

John Fairbairn is from Canada though, and as of today, I don’t like them that much.  It will pass, but today they and us are not friends.

 

Another Canadian, Mellisa Hollingsworth, has what looks like a T-Rex on her helmet:

Here’s an album containing a bunch more helmet art.

Finally, here’s the Silver Medal winner from the USA, Noelle Pikus-Pace.

Creepy Canadians

Ok, if this is not creepy, i don’t know what its.  Apparently, the Canadian company Zaio is sending out people to photograph every home in America.  The reason, to sell that information to banks, insurance firms, appraisal services and so on.

Now, as long as the photographers are not on your property, this is totally 100% legal.  This is wrong on so many levels…
