Walking through the maze that is Chapters (Ottawa) and I serendipitously stumble upon the magazine section. I’ve been thinking alot about growing herbal medication to supplement my income – Just like the rest of the ACMG or anyone else who lives in the interior for that matter, (I’m joking, relax) and there I see it, either it was a funny joke by the guy who stocks the shelf or they really think climbers are pot heads, but here is what I found, I laughed so hard I nearly dumped my non-fat-non-dairy-gluten free-sugar free-non soy-cinnamon sprinkled coffee all over some fur coated lady standing behind me reading the latest Martha Stewart Magazine, that made me laugh even harder and I was forced to pull out my SLR and take a snap shot. Here it is, but before you look make sure you set your mug down on a stable surface.
About 20 minutes later, we took a drive around the block and we stumbled upon Stephen Harper’s house (for those of you who don’t know, I think he is our Prime Minister) his mansion is not quite as impressive or triumphant as the ‘ol White house, but then again Canada is not quite like the U.S. of A. – Hallelujah to that, amen and praise the lord. Too far? Doh! Anyway, here is what the place looks like at 40 clicks per hour through the passanger side window, impressive I know.

Okay and then on my last leg of the slide show tour, I stopped in Quebec City to see some friends and share some pictures and movies. The week before I arrived, they got record breaking snow fall, lke 15 feet. Unfortunately I missed the best of it, but this is what the streets looked lke a week later, when most of it melted, AWESOME.
Okay, enough of this blogging stuff, I have to go out and climb. The sun just poked through the clouds and I am itching to grip some real stone, if you can call it that. Technically it’s labelled “welded tuff”, but my friend Mark says it’s neither, it’s not welded and it ain’t that tough.
