Lovely Beverages

As David Letterman is fond of saying, I don't think there's a man, woman, or child alive today who doesn't enjoy a lovely beverage. Sometimes though, it is possible that a person could enjoy too many lovely beverages. He could also spend too much money, waste time, get behind in his classes, not exercise and not write anything in his blog for two weeks. When you try to live your life a certain way for an extended period, let's say at least for a 20 month MBA program, there is the possibility of getting distracted. Without enough discipline its way too easy to take your eye off the ball.

When we were expecting an unusually volatile day in the markets, one of my old bosses at CIBC used to say "keep your stick on the ice today". I feel a little like my stick is off the ice these days. I'm just cruising down the rink, I'm gazing up into the crowd checking out the blonde sitting behind the net, and meanwhile Scott Stevens is lining me up for a concussion-inducing hip check. November then, is going to be all about buckling back down. I need to avoid that check like Tara Reid needs some double sided tape.



I'll stop referencing pop culture now just long enough to express once again a sincere thank you to all our veterans. Remembrance Day is November 11th - and still not an official holiday in this province for some reason. Remember, we owe them a debt that can never be paid back.

Ahh Lovely beverages,

Me thinks the Edmonton Eskimoes must have imbibed in a few too many lovely beverages before their game against the RoughRiders of Saskatchewan, thus causing their demise and early exit from this year's playoffs. Which means a certain friend of ours from Edmonton is no doubt drinking himself, to drown his sorrow. Which brings us to the B.C. Lions, and the fact that their quest for the Grey Cup will be no less difficult against the Riders next weekend, as it would have been against Edmonton. B.C. Place isn't quite the setting for a classic football battle, it just doesn't have the character of a frozen field, with snow blowing in your eyes, but us West Coasters are fond of it and and I hope those of you who have gone moved out east (Don, Trevor G., etc) keep up the cheering so we can all enjoy more lovely beverages. Go Lions!

We will be popping open a few Okanagan Springs Pale Ales to watch the Western Final. By the way, does anyone not love it when Edmonton loses?

I've just found your blog about coffeeforless whilst I was looking for more information to add to my blog about coffeeforless. You've got a great blog going here. It's always good to have more information about coffeeforless. I've just started my own blog about coffeeforless if you would like to take a look.
Keep up the good work.
