There is much information about online performance, the trick to talking about it on a website is to avoid a passive-agressive pity party. Feedback really appreciated.

Common Courtesy

Some may consider this a rant, I consider it an observation. I have been debating this completely off topic post for a few days now, and a FB post from a friend prompted me to it immediately. It could very easily be considered a rant, because there will be a level of profanity (I promise), a little bit of outrage, and some snarkiness directed to members of society.

Charity rides and motorcycle events

I am enjoying this time to recharge and rebuild as I am on a break between cycles of treatment.  I ended up with an extra 2 months in between, but more about that in another update.  This gives me time to volunteer or find things that I can look towards the future for. I have found that my future is still a pretty blank canvas, so having something that I can help build its future, it pretty cool.  This means that charity rides and motorcycle events are actually a pretty big deal in my world these days.  I have the time to work on planning some – so I do.… Read More

Rest in Peace Brian.

I was looking at a number of items that I haven’t completed… I have 4 blog posts in draft format, dating back to mid June.  I have hours of video, mostly unedited, quite a bit not yet viewed, and still a full memory card in the camera – not downloaded. I was feeling sorry for myself when the email came in.  A very good friend and mentor had passed after a brief, but vigorous, battle with cancer.  I reflected upon the past, and poured a rum and coke in his honour. After my diagnosis and move to Edmonton last year, Brian was one of the few people from my past… Read More

Time for a trip

So, without having any scheduled appointments for a few weeks, I am taking the opportunity to head out to BC.  I have about 10-12 days worth of time to spend.  It should be good. One of the things that I have planned to do in order to help keep Mrs, and Mama Bear happier about my long distance riding trip, is to make it so that they will know where I am, to within about 10 minutes.  I bought myself a tracking beacon – and I will carry it.  I tested it, and it even works in my pocket. Bring on the jokes about electronic leashes now – I can… Read More

Motocyclene Therapy

I was reading another Bladder Cancer blog and came across a post that I thought was pretty good…. outside of the Cancer, we have riding in common. motocyclene therapy I have mentioned before that my mental spirit, and focus is not where I want it to be… so, I am hoping to adopt this as a philosophy – “a common term to describe the endorphin effect that occurs when riding for a while.  Others call it “clearing the cobwebs out of the brain” or other metaphors, but the term Motorcyclene Therapy is one that both resonates and works“.   I have used riding as my fresh air through the brain… Read More
