You peony is gorgeous! YOu are so lucky.
Hey girls
hope everyone is having a good day so far. Nice and sunny here, but I am sure that will change any time. Weather for the weekend sounds yucky. Oh well, I will enjoy today.

Well, it rained yesterday so I ditched out before Kim Mitchell played. It is raining today too.

It should be nice out tomorrow, and I will get in a bunch of exercise. It is the annual big Art Festival, so I will be spending all day wandering around and figuring out what I am going to buy this year...

Ozzy was awesome!!!!! He has actually lost some weight and is in better shape. He really has a lot of energy considering his age and what he has put his body through over the years.

His performance was great, the only time he really showed his age is when he shamble-ran across the stage -that is when he looked like he does in the tv show the rest of the time he looked great!

The band was great -Jason Neusted (sp?) formerly of Metallica fame was the base player so it was kind of neat to see him live.

They played a mix of old and new songs and played some really old Sabbath (circa 1970) and stuff like War Pigs, Fairies Wear Boots and of course Iron Man and Paranoid. They actually played for an extra 1/2 hour too

Apparently he was staying in town for a few days and walked around the downtown core/Byward market with his entourage,
hung out at Starbucks about 2 blocks from my work, graciously spoke with fans and signed autographs and handed out some $20 bills to some homeless people.

He was quoted in the local papers as saying how nice our city was and it was like in olden times (what guess he meant the architecture of the old buildings and the open air market downtown etc. )and how he was really enjoying his time here. Yay! Ottawa gets the Ozzy seal of approval!!

Mauvais - I love it. Ozzy is great. Glad you had fun!

Ellis - thanks, but I don't mind too much. It was a free concert and I was tired anyway. They happen every Tursday over the summer with all sorts of different people. For the next 3 weeks (54.40, Default, Gord Downie!!!!), my butt will be firmly planted in front of the stage.

Hehehe. Too late Mauvais. Buffalo has already been taken over by Canada. We are closer to Toronto then any other major city. I could be at the border in about 5 minutes from work. We get Canadian radio and a few tv stations. The Hip play the arena, 54.40 can sell out a club. We are a huge hockey town. (and football too). It is even easier to drive through Canada to get to the top half of Michigan then to go through the States.

Well at that rate Squeak we may have to make you an honorary Canadian! I know you love Tim Horton's too so I guess you pass all the tests


Frig! Speaking of Timmy's - I just came back from lunch and someone left a bag of Timbits in the kitchen Temptation ain't just a song by that Canadian band "The Tea Party" in fact I am sure they are singing about a box of Timbits and not about a woman at all
