It’s early Friday morning at the Prince of Stanley’s year end school trip. Ok, it isn’t that early… it’s 7:49 and on a normal working Friday, I’d already have my nose hard to the grindstone.

Yesterday was filled with horseback riding, lean-to building and ziplining out in the woods. Today, it’s canoeing and archery before I let the Prince hit the souvenir shop and we jump on the bus back to civilization.

(It just hit me now but how cool would it have been to combine the horseback riding with the archery? There’s probably a policy somewhere about letting anyone shoot potentially lethal projectiles from the back of a large animal in mid-run. Pity.)

I’ve really had no connection out here, save for the times that I’ve been in the open field nearby. In fact, I’m writing this post in Evernote so that I can put it up later when we get back to E-ville. So, I’ve been in withdrawal a bit… I guess I can blame Rogers for that.

Right now, I’m going to go and wake up a half-full bunk of sleeping boys and get them up-and-at-’em before they ring the breakfast bell. I’m just praying for coffee at this point. Mmm… coffee.


RUTR 2010

It’s R-r-roll Up The Rim (or RUTR for the Canadian Internet folk) season again at Tim Hortons and nothing gets our hearts afluttter like combining coffee and the potential for winning prizes.

RUTR 2010 (pronounced ‘twenty ten’ like the cool kids say it) has over 31 million great prizes this year, including:

  • 40 Toyota Rav 4’s
  • 100 $10,000 cash prizes
  • 1,000 Toshiba netbooks
  • 25,000 $100 prepaid TimCards
  • 31,000,000+ donuts and coffees

I decided to take a year off from my RUTR off-season training since it didn’t do me much good last year; ending the 2009 campaign with a dismal 0.176 ERA (earned rims average). And, so far, it’s paying off! Two days into the season and my (Rimming? That really doesn’t sound good.) average is 0.500!!
