Nice note

Came across this note on the facebook page of a friend of mine. Someone apparently left it in the stairway of an apartment building after a "little" incident on the third floor. This situation would have meant police action in the USA, but in this case in Germany it was "resolved" with an embarrassing note.

Baseball night

This weekend Amy and I went to a baseball game here in Winston-Salem and it is such an easy walk for us to get there. But boy was it hot that night. Plus the game was endless with the pitchers not doing so well that night. We left around 11pm with the game tied 11-11 after the ninth inning and eventually the Dash team won 13-12.

The baseball park here is quite nice

Amy got us a great huge lemon ice

Glad there is no close pic of my sweaty shirt. :-)

No nibbling please

While at Whole Foods the other day I noticed the "no nibbling please" sign at the food bar. It is actually quite sad that people have to be told not to snack on these items. People, not everything in the store is a tasting sample.

The swim changes

Until recently I only swam straight sets in the pool and I don't mean multiple sets. More like get in the pool and swim anywhere from 1000m to about 1500m without stopping, and when I trained for Ironman I just increased the distance. Now I actually do different sets, warm up, do kick sessions, various drills and focus on different speed set sessions ranging from short (25m) to long (400m) and totally ranging from 2000m to 3000m. Plus I now got Posidrive fins, hand paddles and finger paddles.

Separated at birth?

Is it possible that Dutch soccer star Dirk Kuyt and Alfred E Newman of Mad Magazine were somehow accidentally separated at birth? Imagine a slightly blonder mullet on Alfred E Newman and we almost got a perfect match.

Happy 4th of July

Amy and I got engaged 3 years ago on 4th of July and we are celebrating our anniversary of that event in Vail, Colorado where we are attending the wedding of my friend Kevin Burnette.

Vail is stunning and we are having a great time here. Happy 4th of July everybody.
