Man, life has been gettin' SO serious for me lately, that stuff like this picture above, just cracks me up and helps to even out the serious vs outrageous sides of me, when the seriousness takes over too long. Anywho, I also believe that we ALL need a little more laughing and fun in our lives! That and a whole lots more LOVE! I grew up in the Beatles era and felt the "peace over war" thing, ever since then and it's all true. Love will get you more places than hate will. The more we are loved in this life, the more we are reaching our potential. No love in your life means nobody knows you, get on the net. A RICH life is NOT measured in Gold or Real Estate but in how many knew and loved you. To share LOVE is a form of "richness" that seemingly few these days, have enough to share. Example: Your beloved dog. He/she just worships you. Unconditional LOVE, expressed every day, from beast to man. You'd probably almost beat someone with a cane, if they were to try and hurt your dog. How many people do you know and say you love, that you would do that for? How many of those loved ones would do that for you? There are MANY, many depths and heights to what this love stuff is, to be sure. It's up to each and every one of us to explore the full gamut of it, you only have so long, you know...

So then of course once you shoot the picture, it has to be resized and or cropped, then titled and saved to a folder. Once that's done, it's pretty easy to add pics from there to the ad posting board. Of course all of this takes time and demands quality of work, in the process, so only so many shots can hit the ad boards in one day.
My two fav's are, Kijiji and also my most recent winner ad board is,Used Ottawa.com. You might even want to slip over there yourself, if you have something you'd like to sell, it's all FREE. :-) Good luck on that if you do decide to go ahead and post over there. Take a peek at some of my little ads there too, if you get a chance. I could most certainly use any and all of the little amounts of money that I'm asking for my stuff.
Here's two pics I will be posting on kijiji this evening, hope it gets bought quick-like...

Africa Patterned Royal Doulton Creamer
That's it, that's all...

You'll probably agree that this man MUST know what he's talking about if it's got to do with the human body,eh! :-) So if Arnold says to eat it, I EAT IT...Here's a couple of pages out of his book, "Arnold:The Education of a Body Builder" which have to do with his take on Nutrition. Since applying his techniques and recommendations over the last two decades, since I found this book, I have managed to stay fairly fit for a man of my age etc. etc. :-)
Apply some of this stuff to your daily diet and you will not be sorry! This is by the way, NOT my only source on nutrition. Trust me, when I say I research something, I mean I get the best sources in the last century and filter through them until I have, in this instance, a couple of power-food lists that almost anyone can use to their benefit. Granted,some folks, my very best friend included, are diabetic and have to watch closely what they eat so they don't unbalance everything. :-( For the most part, most people in general, would greatly benefit from adding some of Mr. Schwarzenegger's recommendations to their daily food intake.
If you have children, Please, feed them the right foods during their formative years. If you are a young teen out there readin' this, try getting the right food into yourself and you will actually start feeling better than you do right now. More energy, stamina, and zest in general. Food, real food, is our fuel. Bad fuel, equals bad performance. An old computer geek term for that was GIGO, which meant, garbage in, garbage out. Fuel yourself with natural power foods and your performance will jump accordingly. Instead, if you just eat say, chips, candies, cookies, cakes, greasy foods, canned spagettio's and other crap, then you can watch your body get all fat and sluggish with little energy and if you're a teen-age person, watch those pimples and other scary ugly zitty things appear on your suffering young body too. Eat Right fair reader, it's never too late to start healing your body and making it stronger so it can live longer...
One more thought...This may come as a suprise to many of you but there are only two kinds of food actually. I won't go into right now but will cover it better in another post. The two foods are: Live food and dead food. Here's the big hint. Eat as much Live food as you can while eating as little dead food as possible. Makes for a livelier body and mind whereas dead food breeds deadening bodies and minds. Well anyway that should get you going for now. Much more later.

So here's a picture taken last fall of a dozen folding pocket knives out of my collection. Some are lock-backs but most are not. None were expensive and all have done much work for me. I think every man should own at least one pocket knife and any women that spends any time in the woods or rural areas at all, should be packing a blade too. They are just too handy to NOT own one. If you do like knives that fold up, which one do you like? Got a favorite? Post it here, in the Comments section.
There will be more pics of more knives, of various kinds shown in here in future installments. Watch for 'em if knives turn your crank...

Anyway, there's a whack of white crap outside, all over everything, to the tune of six plus inches deep and the temps hovering in the -12 degree zone. Brrr, shiver brrr. Yup, I think I'll just stay in to-day and catch-up on some of my web stuff. Speaking of which, here's a shot of what's under my seat etc on my trusty ol' vintage (early 80's) MTBike. This rig has seen a lot of miles and shared a pile of adventures with me and yet like a Timex, it's still keeps on tickin'! I call him Cooly and he's a very proven and dependable mechanical pony, to this ol' cowboy, originally from the rolling hills of Sudbury, Ontario.
You can never have too much gear but I don't believe in excess either, most of the time anyways, I think. ;-)
Take note of the ever present slick bandana (actually there's two on there)in case the weather shitties up on me or I find one of a hundred other uses for it on my tours... :-)
Are you a bit of a gear head too? Got some neat gear you'd like to let me know about? I'm gonna put an email link in here in case some of you would like to contact me and maybe hook-up for a project or two in the future, like biking, fishing, detecting, photography or web work say...
For now though, you could just leave a note in the Comments section.
