The last weekend for snow shoeing.

It maybe the last weekend for snowshoeing in Northern New Brunswick. It will be plus 10 tomorrow, then plus 15 C tomorrow. The snow will take a beating, as I would not trust the rivers or lakes to cross at this moment in time. Ski doos will be hitting the trails in the last hopes of getting in that last drive, through the many thousand km's of groomed trails throughout the Northern part of the province.

While eating at the Atlantic Host in Bathurst on the weekend, we seen the Ski Doo transport, with all the logos on it in the parking lot. There, they had brand new machines for people to check out. They are some beautiful, and fast. But why would you want to go fast, when you have an incredible view of white gold and some beautiful trails surrounded by trees. A typical ski doo, brand new, may cost starting from 12000. Then the suit, helmet, and trail pass. 1000 dollars maybe for a ski doo suit and helmet, and trail pass at 200 dollars. Then there is registration, and insurance for your machine. It is a fun sport, and maybe if things go well, in the future I may buy a Ski doo. You can rent them in some areas, for 300 dollars approx.  for a day rental and you can rent a suit and a helmet for 35 dollars in some areas.

For now, I will stick to the cross country skiing and downhill skiing. I may have a chance to go out this week, if there is any snow left. Have a good evening, till next time..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
