It's all good.
Well what the heck is going on? I have ignored this blog for two weeks now. I blame my new Nintendo Wii game. Playing tennis and frisbee golf is addictive. So life is interesting these days. Winter Carnival begins in Timmins this morning and I will soon be out and about enjoying it. Had a great chat with Jennifer this week. She and Scott got down to Toronto to see a Leafs game... and to their great surprise, they got seated at ice level between the player's benches. Jenn and Scott loved it, especially since the Leafs won. When they got home, they were pleased to hear that Nathan and Tyler had seen them on national television. Life is busy at work. Had another MAC failure this week and had to bring the terminal into the shop. Our sales department is getting new PC laptops. No more MACs for them, lucky bums! I have to stay with the MAC because the company isn't willing to get new program licences or new machines for the news side of the operation. There is so much news going on around mining. Gold continues to dominate exploration in this area and now there is all the excitement over a massive deposit of chromite north of here... Chromite is what you need to put the "Stainless" in stainless steel. It looks like several BILLION dollars will be spent developing the property and Timmins is hoping to cash in on some of that action. Interesting days and months ahead. Anyway, the sun is shining and I know that spring is on the way in a matter of several more weeks. I will get some snowshoeing in this weekend and I will have to remember to put some SPF on my face. I got a bit too much sun last week. Keep smiling.
