Hectic Metal

Oh boy oh boy, did the backing riot vocals for the Hectic Metal recordings today (well, actually yesterday at the time of writing this entry). And is my throat ever effin sore! Probably not gonna have a voice tomorrow. Hell, during the recordings it was already almost gone at times. The other guys said I started to sound like Lemmy. Having a beer now. God! When I swallow that cold beer, that feels so good to my throat. If you haven't done this kind of "singing" for a while, it really takes getting used to it again. FYI, I used to have the nickname "Hell Throat", so guess I used to be pretty good at it.

Number of Tim Hortons between Kelowna and Edmonton

During the long drive from Kelowna BC to Edmonton AB, we've counted the number of Tim Hortons visible from the road. There are bound to be quite a few more along the way in places such as in Lacombe, Innisfail, Ponoka, etc., but they were either not visible or they required a few clicks drive from the highway. The route taken was Kelowna, Sicamous over 97A, Revelstoke, Golden, Field, Banff, Cochrane via hwy 22, Airdrie via hwy 567, Red Deer and then Edmonton.

In Edmonton we avoided Gateway Boulevard (hwy 2) by taking the Anthony Henday (hwy 216) to Yellowhead (hwy 16). The last Timmie we counted was the one on 82nd, 128 ave. The total number of Tim Hortons we counted was 14. Just so you know in case you ever have to drive to Kelowna or back to Edmonton, there are 14 Tim Hortons along the road. And no, we didn't go visit them all, only the ones in Kelowna, Golden and Cochrane.

Pile a Snow

In Edmonton for a family visit and birthday. Missed the cold snap and the -40 weather up there, current weather is great. Sun is shining, it's a warm +1 C and promises to stay warm for a couple of days. There's lots of snow too:

Big pile a snow ;-)
