11 of 101 Things To Do: Visit Montreal & Attend A Formula 1 Race

Netflix came out with a Docu-Series called “Drive To Survive” shown above with the trailer that covers the 2019 season. I’ve never really been a fan… but watching this it makes you want to go check out an F1 race. The tour comes to Montreal, which would be a fun place to get away for a long weekend.

F1 Track in Montreal

In 2023, the weekend for Montreal is in the middle of June. My son has exams the next week based on his high school schedule. Something to think about is if we can make it work. Austin, Texas could be an idea in October??? Buggers… 2024 is out due to the PCT with Chantal… and 2025 could be a possibility if we use our van and start the trip off in Montreal and backtrack to Ottawa and then down to the States. That could work. Let’s try and make it happen in 2023 first.

I had no idea that my long-time GF got married to someone on the RedBull Team, so hopefully, I get to bump into her in Montreal and catch up with her 😉

New Moo Cards | 2019 Edition

Just ordered some new “Me” cards from Moo.  These one’s are square and I ordered a little case to fit them in.  My last set was ordered in 2014.  You can see my last 3 sets here.  This year’s cards have my JSDOIT logo on the front and this year I went with the square kind and also got the LUXE version so they are super thick and can’t bend.  I picked up a little case that fans to get them out easy.

I like these little cards since you come across people and you can easily give one out to connect or set up something in the future.  Puts the ball in their court.  It’s always nice to meet new people and it’s also helpful when you travel and meet up on the other side of the world.

The Day My Wife Got Married

yep.  at the moment me and my ex have been separated since Feb of 2012.  things went south in 2013 between us and we never worked out an agreement or got divorced since then and we stopped talking to each other.  So on August 8th of this year she married her boyfriend of about two years in a fake wedding in front of a small handful of people.  Kids really like her guy so that honestly makes me happy.  maybe if she is happier she will be nicer this way.



i know it was not a real wedding since the  officiant couldn’t have married them legally.   if they felt that they wanted to promise things to each other and in front of family and friends so that’s a good thing no matter who you are.

i’m guessing she didn’t approach me for an official divorce since she would have to give up her power she has.  She loves the control and she loves sticking it to me via the kids.

my daughter makes me laugh.  she looked incredible and also my son.  so handsome.



 left to right:  my son, daughter, gags for drags, nana, the ex, stu, karen’s sister and her husband and their two kids.

this wedding was the reason my kids could not be with me on my scheduled vacation this summer since it happened just after it and she planned stuff overlapping since his kids came from england during my vacation block.

kids and I hope that this makes her happy and in doing so she is a normal person and she doesn’t do the stupid stuff.

for the record… i stopped feeling married October 31st, 2011 when I took my ring off.
