A work dispatcher for the local water authority, repairs and maintenance.
I was just 1 in the team of about 8, then made full time and the Team Leader.
It was magic :up:

I've commanded many more and been in charge (custody) of probably 700+ but they are stories for another day.

What's the story, are you doubled over in agony after taking a nut shot, or just practicing a standard goalie stance?

I thought a goalie stance, and a nice looking battle suit Captain Mazda.

This weekend I am off to the wedding of a nephew some 2 hours away up in the mountains.

Booked 2 nights at a local bed & breakfast.

Bloody weather turned cloudy with showers in the last day or two but hopefully it clears for the ceremony. It's a bit cooler south and up there so finally unpacked my winter clothes.

June here already tomorrow :smirk:

Note to self: Have to start on those pelmets and roller blinds removal on my return.

I did a charity rock climbing marathon last Saturday, our team of 4 raised over $1300 for the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and climbed a total distance of 8696 feet in 4 hours. Of that height, I personally climbed a total of 2516 feet, with the highest continuous climb of 550 feet! By comparison, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai is 2716 feet, the CN Tower is a measly 1814.

This Sunday I will be biking across Toronto for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Currently, I'm just $60 short of my $500 fundraising goal. Usually, I do a fair bit of training for this event every year but with all the climbing I've been doing, I've gotten lazy on the biking. I'll have to just wing it.

So, two endurance based fundraisers in a week, clearly I didn't not plan this well.

I am building a hexacopter aluminium and balsa wood frame and have ordered 6 295 Kv motors, 17 " props, 6 Esc, 3 Lipo 6000 4S batteries, DJI Naza-m V2 controller, DJI PC Total Station, GoPro3 Fpv HD video camera with receiver and transmitter to my PC.
I am building it so that I can do Magnetometer Surveys in very dense bush and High Quality Lydar with Airphotos.

I just aquired an exploration license on a patch of ground with high potential for gold and copper but has very Very thick sharp pointy nasty thorn trees.

neato. was watching a Time Team ep the other day where they used lydar to map a Roman iron smelting place that was in some woodland (that couldn't just be cut down)

perhaps you'll find Kaiser Wilhelm's 'place in the sun' buried under those thorns :)

I spent the last couple nights in the garage replacing the timing chain, water pump and thermostat in my Cutlass, in preparation for a weekend trip with the lady. We're taking it out for a camping trip this weekend into next week and wanted to replace some stuff for piece of mind. That beast is gonna look awesome with a 15' tandem kayak strapped to the top of it :olo:

Other than that, I might have a lead on a potential position in Chicago.

Went for a 2 hour lovely country drive to some 'once a month' markets held at their local showgrounds. Busy as! Didn't buy much at all but plan to go back in a month or 3 and do it again and go to the local winery for lunch :) I love country drives :D

Well, read note to self and removed pelmets ready for those plantation shutters.

I am told they mostly come from China these days :smirk: so wait we must.
Still have to fill/plug, sand and paint those little holes left in the deep recessed window surrounds. Make it look nice :D
Looks like a trip to the hardware store as I can't seem to find that sandpaper I had stashed away. Better buy some paint as well.

See the movie thread: I went to the movies (or do you call it the cinema?) today and saw the Tom Cruise, Live, Die, Repeat thing, the movie, Edge of Tomorrow.

Jr. A goalie coach reached out to me and gave me a private session to gauge my potential and now he wants to work with me full-time. I'm also designing a new logo and advertising for his goalie school. Also a new ad agency is interested in hiring me as a full-time art director.
