Until recently I drove a Mazda 626, but it was 10 years old and the costs of maintenance were increasing to the point where it competed with payments on a new car. Things like transmission failures and timing belts and cooling system problems were becoming more popular than I liked. Although I loved that car, and paid whatever it took to keep it healthy, I knew it was time to move on.

It is mid-July, and it has been raining now for 7 days in a row (which I learned was a new record for this area). I have written before on my efforts to lose some weight. At one point, it was coming down quite steadily. That was a year or two ago. Since then I got distracted, and it leveled off.

I notice from the logs that a lot of people get here by searching for "customer appreciation day ideas". I imagine all these business owners around the world, deciding to hold a customer appreciation day, and then they use google to do some research on the topic. But I wonder, why just one day?

I recently got elected club president for the Port Moody Canoe and Kayak Club and so I set about organizing a schedule of interesting paddles. One of the first club events I decided we would go from Rocky Point to the Twin Islands in Indian Arm for a 2 day paddle. It was our first overnight paddle/camping, so within the few weeks prior to the event we had to obtain suitable camping gear that would fit in a kayak.

I was talking with someone on LinkedIn recently, about happiness. He asked what makes you really, truly happy deep down.
The question implies my happiness is controlled by external sources. To answer the question constrains you to believing that other things or events can make you happy.

Perhaps you are familiar with a famous baseball comedy act, known as Who's On First? by Bud Abbott and Lou Costello. It highlights what I see as a communication breakdown between the two people involved.
We had a similar experience recently when we crossed the border into the USA from Canada.
