Fortune

If happy means angry and proud means irritated, then this is spot on.

Summer Food

Is it just me or does food seem to Tate better in the Summer. This is steak, zuchinni, avacado, and brocoli with strawberries and watermelon.

Google+

Wow, could it be any more like facebook. I mean, I like it - I like it even more but it feels the same. Its going to be so hard to get people into both. I don't understand how people can possibly have enough time in their lives for all of this social networking. Maybe google is going to do an even better job with it.

Buffalo Fireworks From the Outer Harbour

The spot we went to last year was
  1. well lit by new street lights
  2. packed with 10,000 people

Its like this year everyone knew our spot so we moved out on the harbor into the dark. I think it was the most intense upclose view of large scale fireworks I have ever seen.

Here is the finale filmed with my outdated 5mp mobile phone cam.

It was a great end to a great weekend. Next weekend is (e:hodown) visit, Sirius Rising and the Taste of Buffalo.

Midnight Mass - July 4th 2010

Now that I finally got a bike I headed out to midnight mass last night. By 12:30am there must have been 300+ bikers at Allen St Holly Farms waiting to go.

image

image

I wish I had the foresight to use Google's free My Tracks app so that we could have seen speed, distance and location afterwards.

The amount of fireworks that went of on this trip was unbelievable. We traveled from Allen to Niagara Square where the bikes filled up the entire circle going around and around. I wish I had a pic of it from up top. At some point around here something happend to sameer because we didn't see him anymore.

Then down to the sand hills on the Buffalo River. It was so dark I could not get picture but the highlights were two dudes doing linked somersaults down the sand hill while holding lit sparklers in their pockets, people shooting the Verizon sign with bottle rockets and smoking a beer.

image

The next stop was a gas station ore on the eastside. They must have been so excited to get so much business at 2am. I think they sold out of beer. The scariest part was fireworks at the gas station. I quickly moved away from the tanks.

image

image

Here you can see (e:Terry) was one of the first people in line.

Next we made a trip to a park I had never seen on the buffalo river where we had a massive bonfire. Here is the google map to it.

...and here are two pics of the location thanks to google maps

At the park with the bonfire, people sand the anthem followed by a bunch of "America - Fuck Ya!"


This is the only example of the song I could find on youtube

Last stop was delaware park then my backyard with (e:keithT) and Casey.

Windmill Point Park Rock Quarry Rocks

I had the best swimming experience I have ever had in the area at Windmill Point Park Rock Quarry in Fort Erie

The downside is it's in Canada across the bridge and the border drama is annoying.

Other than that it is the first time I have been swimming in clean water in so long. It was crystal clear, so much that I felt comfortable opening my eyes under water.

We swam across and back. Its nice because although they have a supervised lifeguard area you can swim wherever the frick you want at your own risk.

The water is cool but refreshing rather than freezing. It gets about 40ft deep and the lifeguard said its fed by 17 springs.

I dove off the rocks after (e:libertad) jumped in. They also had this giant blow up rock wall slide.

It cost $8.50 Canadian to get in but its worth every penny. The lifeguard said they have a season pass too.

They also have camping for $27.
