Good things happen to good people who try. Simple as that...

Your story reminds me why I do not believe in coincidence.

Good guys might lose battles, but never the war.

Who says it is quiet in the country... LOL

http://www.viva-media.ca/actualite/peri ... st-lazare/

An "altercation" happened at a bar 3 houses down from my place. Article says someone was wounded, but a friend called me stating a coroner's vehicle was there. LOL

No surprise, really... the Chinese "businessman" that has owned the place for the last 6 years doesn't even hide the fact that it is a money-laundering front. LOL He's apparently been beaten up already a few times.

Well... at least my house is somewhat famous now. LOL

I don't know if I should post this in the "Thanks" thread or here... but it is news, so here goes.

My life has been given a breath of fresh air as of late. The new job, although hectic, is a godsend. My new work colleagues are amazing, my boss is top-notch, and I get to travel and meet new people.... and see old friends!!!

Last week, being in Toronto, I took the opportunity to go see Warlock and Brewmanager. Man did I ever miss the boys. Scott even took some time to chat with me on Friday on my way back. He was happy to see me smiling again. Funny... Paidge said the same thing not long before at the MPL meeting... I am also happy to be smiling again... It was a dark ride for a while. Work sucked ass, problems at home... all good now. I'll spare the boring details.

Was also nice to chat with Robert a bit at Starburst while picking up parts and see the mischievous smile again. It was a weird coincidence that just a few days before I passed in front of the old Crane building where so many Fridays were spent. Great times... and I am sure there will be more someday.

Good times ahead ladies and germs... another run to Toronto at the end of the month... Borderland meeting in December... yeah baby!

Sorry I haven't been as visible as I should as of late... new job is quite hectic but great! I have been travelling a SHITLOAD lately, meeting people in dealerships. Here's my itinerary just for next week:

Tuesday: Victoriaville, and Quebec. Sleeping at hotel in Quebec.
Wednesday: La Pocatiere, Rivière-du-Loup and Rimouski. Sleeping in Rimouski.
Thursday: Amqui, then driving home.

Last week was Ottawa, Brockville, Mirabel, St-Jean-sur-Richelieu and Sherbrooke.

The week of the 28th, I am heading to Toronto. In town from Tuesday the 29th to Friday.

Week of December 12th? All week in Milwaukee for some training.

I am putting in some serious mileage on the company SUV. LOL But it's all good.... except for my minivan. Poor thing barely gets used now. LOL. I may even sell the damn thing at some point. If I will have a second vehicle for fun, I rather it be a fun vehicle, like the big van I had, or a Jeep, or something... Sad too, considering I just did the brakes on it again and it runs great.

Oh well... I will see in the spring. Either I sell it or keep it another year. I finish paying it in October 2017. I may just let it go for dirt cheap at that point. Who knows.

Otherwise all is good... looking forward to visiting Murrsky tomorrow for some beer, shawarma and redneck TV sports. LOL

Hopefully in my "spare time" I will finish the gameroom for the Borderland pinmeet. Yikes... LOL

Enough for now... gotta clean up things... I just finished painting the kitchen today... 98% done. Damn renovations... LOL

Time to update all activities I suppose.
The buy/sell content just does not do it for me. Sorry.

We require stories once again. No heart and soul left online. Time to bring that back.
