#63 Completed | Get a credit card with a points/reward system that works for my life. 



I got a RBC Virtual Visa Debit card that is connected to my bank account that allows me to make purchases where Visa is accepted and the money comes out of my bank account instead of credit.  My goal was to get a rewards card…but so far… I have not found one that I really want that makes the most “cents” to get.

I like the fact that I got rid of my credit card and basically live off what I have.  Live simple.


New Musak Mixtape | Ben Howard Live

This morning I was listening to a Ben Howard concert that I ripped into a MP3 from a YouTube video.  (Ya… awesome to think about!  Pulling audio from free YouTube)

Anyways… I thought of pulling some Ben Howard songs from different concerts into a mixtape.

Previous 101 List Completed| Lose The Man Inside The Man

Task: Loose a total of 50 pounds through a sensible long term plan of fitness and proper nutrition.  | Started this Jan 1st, 2012.  As of June 20th, 2012 down 25 pounds + as of Sept 2012 down 48 pounds.  As of November of 2012… I am down 60 pounds.  As of November 2014… I don’t have a clue… but I’ve gained some back.  I’m looking at getting fit this winter at the YMCA.  I’ve also started a Giveit100 project and you can find that in the “LINKS” pull down menu at the top.  My goal is to build muscle this winter and just make my mid section more “straight”.  

This one is a work in progress.  I know that things will go up and down.  I’m in the process of adding muscle to my body in my arms, shoulders and really… anything above the waist.  I will post some pictures soon.  But I’m happy of doing my goal of getting rid of 50 pounds in total since starting in January.

Karen + Dan | The Last Unicorn by Passenger | Song Of The Year 2011


Karen is my ex-wife and we were together for 23 years.  We started going out when we were 18 years old.    When I was making a little video from images of my daughter I stumbled upon some old photos of us.  So I pulled some photo-albums and scrapbooks that I made and slapped a song from Passenger on it that best represents things between us.  We were split in the late fall of 2011.  The picture above is something that  I doodled this when I was 18 and was hanging out in the back of Cadet Cleaners as she was working one afternoon after school.  I would doodle while I waited as she served customers in the front of the store.

“The Last Unicorn”

Well we’ll kiss for that’s how it begins
We’ll embrace just to warm our skins
I’ll think of her and you’ll think of him

And we’ll talk to keep the silence from our ears
And we’ll laugh because we’re so close to tears
We’re just lonely, you know, that’s why we’re here

Cos you don’t taste like you should
And you don’t fit in my arms like she would
Lying in the dark, it’s understood:
We are both lost
And we won’t be found

We will wake up with each other in our paws
You cover over white bits like I’ve not seen them before
We’ll say goodbye and then we’ll say no more

Cause hearts won’t buy love and nor will they sell
And there is no love in this hotel
Though we’re walking home we know too well
We are both lost
We are both lost
And we won’t be found

She was my compass
He was your map
We’ve come too far to be turning back

And we’ll sit on our single beds
Nothing on our hearts and tears on our threads
For we know the last unicorn is dead

After 10 years of going out this happened below on September 5th, 1998
