A Thank You from Stampeders Kicker Sandro De'Angelis

Courtesy of (home of wicked Calgary blogs!)

I didn’t sleep much Sunday night; in fact, I starting writing this blog in the wee hours of the morning, a lot earlier than normal.
I have so many things running through my head, so many questions that I wish I had answers to. This season was not supposed to turn out this way, not with this team, not with this talent. I honestly thought we would win back-to-back championships.
I couldn’t wait to see the way this city would respond to having its team playing for the Grey Cup at home. I used to day dream about seeing McMahon packed with 45,000 dressed in red, the noise, the excitement, the drama. Opportunities like this do not come around very often. We are privileged to be in the position we are in as pro athletes and quite frankly, we didn’t get it done. There are no more “re-dos” or “get ’em next week”; we’ll never know just how special it could have been.
The 2009 football season was very difficult. We worked extremely hard, and I feel like we did the little things that it takes to win. I thought we battled through a lot of adversity and showed flashes of dominance. Many different guys played through injuries, gritting their teeth to do what was best for the team. We just couldn’t find the consistent groove we needed to get the job done in the end. Like I stated earlier, I wish I had the answers because this wasn’t the way it was supposed to end!
I want to dedicate the rest of this blog to our FANS and say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. There are so many things you could spend your hard-earned money on, yet you choose to support us. That support means the world to us players and I want you all to know that. A loss like this is not only hurtful to us players for personal reasons, but it also hurts because we disappointed you. So once again I say Thank You and hopefully 2010 will bring better results!

Some friends are always there for you...

So, I'm walking with my friend Tanya this week, and of course we talk about "what's new" stuff... and I'm told that I'm stressed. So what does a good friend do? Sends a funny email, that's what!

Stress Relief

In case you are having a rough day, here is a stress management technique recommended in all the latest Psychological journals. You have to read all 7 steps to completely learn how to manage the stress in your life.

The funny thing is that it really does work and will make you smile...

1. Picture yourself lying on your belly on a warm rock that hangs out over a crystal clear stream.

2. Picture yourself with both your hands dangling in the cool running water..

3. Birds are sweetly singing in the cool mountain air.

4. No one knows your secret place.

5. You are in total seclusion from that hectic place called the world.

6. The soothing sound of a gentle water fall fills the air with a cascade of serenity.

7. The water is so crystal clear that you can easily make out the face of the person you are holding underwater.

Hand Sanitizers Info!

As H1N1 panic begins to boil again, here are a few facts about effective prevention ...
• Alcohol-based hand sanitizers have been proven more effective than plain soap & water in preventing the transmission of bacteria via hands.
• Your hands also tend to stay cleaner longer after using a hand sanitizer.
• Effective hand sanitizers should contain between 60-and-80% alcohol.
• The idea that frequent use of hand sanitizers will make bacteria resistant to treatment is bogus.
• Hand sanitizers are easier on skin than soap because most now contain skin conditioners.
• To use a hand sanitizer effectively, first make sure your hands are free of visible grime & dirt.
• To be effective, sanitizer needs to be rubbed in vigorously for 30 seconds, until hands are dry.
• Never rinse hands with water or wipe with a towel afterward as it counteracts the effectiveness.

Pass the Torch... Here...!

© Copyright (c) The Vancouver Sun

ATHENS — Some believe the 2010 Olympic Games won't begin until Feb. 12, when the opening ceremonies are held at BC Place Stadium. Others say it begins earlier than that.

They believe it begins at 2 a.m. Thursday, when 10 hours and thousands of kilometres away in Olympia, Greece, actresses performing as priestesses will gather in the Temple of Hera and use the sun's rays to light the Olympic flame in the bowl of a parabolic mirror.

The culmination of years of planning, the spark of light in many ways signifies the end of the six-year organizing period and the start of the 2010 Games. By now, organizing committees like Vanoc are supposed to have everything finished and simply be able to wait for the celebrations to begin.

"It is the moment when Canadians will start to get excited about the Olympics like never before," said Nicola Kettlitz, spokesman for Coca-Cola's Olympic Project Team. "It happens every time. Once the torch is lit people start to get excited about it."

In Greece, the excitement is building already. Thursday's event marks the first time in history that the Olympic cultural ceremony for the lighting of a winter torch will be held in the "ancient stadium" in Olympia, the cradle of the Games.

While all Olympic flames are lit in the Temple of Hera, winter cultural ceremonies have in the past been held in another area called "De Coubertin's Grove," named for the founder of the modern Olympics, Pierre De Coubertin. The summer ceremonies are held in the original stadium.

Jim Richards, director of torch relays for the Vancouver Organizing Committee, said Vanoc appealed to the Hellenic Olympic Committee to change the location.

"We went back to them and talked to them about the goals of our relay, and why holding the cultural festivities in the ancient stadium would be right. It was a real priority for us," he said. "They graciously agreed."

After the flame is lit, the torch will begin an eight-day journey around Greece. It will then be handed over to Vanoc on Oct. 29 to begin a 10-hour flight back to Victoria, where the first of 12,000 torchbearers will start the 106-day relay covering every province and territory, from west to north to east and finally home again to Vancouver.

Guests at the lighting will include Gov.-Gen. Michaelle Jean; B.C. Premier Gordon Campbell; Renata Wielgosz, Canada's ambassador to Greece; Gary Lunn, Canada's minister of state for sport; and several B.C. mayors, including Vancouver's Gregor Robertson. The IOC will be represented by president Jacques Rogge and Rene Fasel, chairman of the Vancouver Coordination Commission.

Richards said the process of repatriating the flame back to Canada is, in one sense, very simple, and in another very complex. It's as straightforward as taking it on board an aircraft and flying it home (although Vanoc did have to apply for a special exemption from Transport Canada in order to carry an open flame on a jet). And yet it's difficult because the flame needs extraordinary care.

Housed in a modified miner's lamp, it is fuelled with regular lighter fluid, but needs to be tended carefully. At any time there are at least three flames — a "mother" and two "daughters" — all of which are meant as insurance against the unthinkable catastrophe of a flame actually going out.

Ensuring the flame is lit — and stays lit — is of highest priority for organizers. In fact, the 2010 flame already has been lit, just in case weather doesn't cooperate Thursday and clouds mar the sky. The Hellenic Olympic Committee performed a lighting several days ago, when the sun was shining brightly, and kept aside at least one flame for insurance. Nature is fickle and doesn't perform to the commands of nations or the International Olympic Committee.

"The HOC has already done several test lightings just in case the weather cools," Richards said. "But they tell us they expect it to be sunny on the day of the ceremony."

Once the ceremonial flame is successfully lit, the "backup" flame will be extinguished.

During the relay, Richards said Vanoc will have 10 lanterns in operation, just in case something goes wrong.

Never in the history of the modern Olympic movement has a torch been fully extinguished, although Canada registered one embarrassing moment when the cauldron for the 1976 Montreal Summer Games went out. A helpful bystander re-lit the cauldron with a cigarette lighter, causing consternation for the organizers. It was extinguished and re-lit with one of the Olympic flames kept on standby.

A cautious approach is also being taken in the area of security. Greek officials are hoping to avoid a repeat of the last lighting ceremony in 2008, when pro-Tibet protesters and others tried to disrupt the relay for the Beijing Summer Games. From the start of the ceremony in Olympia, the international portion was dogged with protesters who tried to douse the flame. Protests were particularly fierce in London, Paris and San Francisco, leading the International Olympic Committee to ban future organizers from conducting international relays.

As a result, the Vancouver flame will travel through Greece and then immediately be taken to Canada. An early plan for a refuelling stop in France that would allow the flame to be taken to Vimy Ridge — where Canada marked its bloody involvement in the First World War — was cancelled due to concern it would be seen as an international tour.

Even so, Vanoc and its security wing, the Vancouver 2010 Integrated Security Unit, are bracing for protests from a small but disparate group of people united under several banners, including native rights, anti-poverty, anti-globalization and environmental extremism. Vanoc has already encountered some of these protests in the past at countdown celebrations and public meetings.

While they are prepared for limited protests, the atmosphere here Tuesday was one of excitement.

The Hellenic Olympic Committee announced Monday that Vassilis Dimitriadis — a Greek giant slalom star who participated in the 1998, 2002 and 2006 Winter Games — will be the first torchbearer. Toronto student Niki Georgiadou will be the last, carrying the torch into the Panathenian Stadium for the handover ceremony.

In between, the torch will travel through 22 districts, 42 municipalities, three municipal districts and one community. Organizers will conduct 36 lighting ceremonies, including two at archeological sites.

For Canada, the Greek leg of the relay will be a relatively small affair. After the lighting and before the handover, Vanoc won't have any regular staff on site. The sole Canadian representative will be Konstantinos Kastigiannis, Vanoc's "ambassador" and president of the Canadian-Greek Chamber of Commerce in Athens.

But it's still the 2010 flame. And in less than 10 days, it will come home. Let the Games begin.

Big Brother Winner uses winnings to finance drug ring

American Press (AP) Article
Photo: Getty Images

Accused ... Adam Jasinski.
The winner of the United States reality TV show Big Brother has confessed to using his $US500,000 prize to buy thousands of oxycodone pills and resell them, authorities say.

Adam Jasinski, 31, of Delray Beach, Florida, has been charged with attempting to sell 2000 pills in Massachusetts to a government witness.

Federal prosecutors said Jasinski was arrested after he flew to Boston and showed the witness a sock containing two plastic bags filled with oxycodone, a powerful painkiller that is a popular street drug because of its euphoric effects.

As agents tried to arrest Jasinski at a strip mall in North Reading, he struggled and threw the sock under a car parked nearby, Todd Prough, a special agent with the Drug Enforcement Administration, said in an affidavit filed in court.

Jasinski won $US500,000 last year on the CBS reality show in which contestants live under constant surveillance and vote once a week to evict each other in hopes of becoming the last house guest standing and winning the grand prize.

Prough said in the affidavit that Jasinski told him that he has been using his winnings to buy thousands of oxycodone pills and has been reselling them along the East Coast for the past several months.

Jasinski's lawyer, Valerie Carter, did not immediately return a call on Tuesday.

He faces a maximum of 20 years in prison and a $US1 million fine on a charge of possession of oxycodone pills with intent to distribute.

Body Confidence Secrets

See the full article at Glamour magazine! This is only a sample of page 1 of the article.

In her memoir, Hungry, 23-year-old Crystal Renn chronicles her battle with anorexia and exercise bulimia as she struggled to make it as the skinniest of supermodels. It wasn’t until she embraced her curves and became a plus-size model (that’s the modeling industry’s term for models over size 6) that her career skyrocketed. We asked the size-12 beauty how she learned to love her body and how you can too.

First, what inspired you to write Hungry?
I want women and the fashion industry to hear me and think, You know what—maybe there should be all different body types up on the runway, maybe that’s a really a great idea. I want women to be happy with who they are because I think that once they do that, all opportunities in their lives will get even bigger and better for them. Doors will be opened to them because they will be ready for it. Think about it: If you hate yourself, you don’t like your relationships, you don’t do as well at work, you don’t take all the chances that you want in your life. I would like to see women overcome that and take it to the next level.

I want women to be empowered, to be confident, to love life, and that’s why I chose the title Hungry for my book. Because it’s hungry for everything. And that’s what I want women to take away from it—to love themselves but also to accomplish your dreams.

Loving your body is one of those things that’s easier said than done. What advice do you have for women to put the thought into action?
Instead of focusing on all the bad things like, “Oh my gosh, I hate my thighs,” I say let’s look at the hair and say, “Oh wow, I’m having such a great hair day.” Or “Oh wow, my eyes are so clear today…I really like my lips….” And then eventually your mind will start to change and think of the positive things when you look in the mirror instead of focusing on the negative. It definitely takes time—it’s a habit—but just like anything else, over time, you can change the way your mind works.

So when you’re having a bad day and look in the mirror, what part of your body do you embrace to change your thought process?
There are a few things I look at on those days: I say, “Wow, I have full, great, healthy hair,” because now I eat healthy and I can see my health in my hair. That’s one thing. I also say, “Wow, I have great cheekbones. Let’s play them up, put some bronzer on them.” And then I might say, “Oh wow, I have a great waist; I’m going to show it off by belting my dress today.” Or I’ll put on some red lipstick and see how great I feel. I love wearing lipstick. It’s my feel-good-immediately move.

FLU Shot Articles and Links

An email from Charlotte
Hey Zack, as promised here are some of my vaccine links. Just got the top one today. I was never anti-vaccine because I really didn't know much about them and thought they"must" be safe. Went to a course on vaccines when I was pregnant, made me start looking into things and changed my mind forever. Glad you took the no vaccine part of the bet. Meg will likely not get one of the 3 common flu viruses but she'll likely have more colds, skin issues and if she has asthma she may need her inhaler more (that was a big thing for me before I stopped getting the shot).

Anyway hope the info helps :) Didn't want to overload you but, I've got lots more of info if you want, just let me know. This next one actually has the listed ingredients of every Canadian vaccine via their web-site.

Thanks to Rod Coulter at for this one

HUGE! Toyota Recall

Toyota has announced a recall on the floor mats of six different Toyota and Lexus vehicles spanning six production years. The floor mats on these cars and trucks could cause, and may already have caused an accident and should be removed immediately, and not replaced by another mat. According to Toyota, several popular cars and trucks have the faulty floor mats, including the most recent Camry and Prius models.
Toyota has released some instructions for what to do if your accelerator becomes stuck. Most of these will probably seem like common sense, but in the event of a catastrophe, common sense I susually the first thing to go. First off, you should try to pull the floor mat off of the gas pedal. If that doesn’t work, stand on the brake pedal and put the car’s transmission into neutral. If the car can’t be put into neutral, turn the key off, but don’t remove the key from the ignition as that will cause the steering wheel to lock.
Owners of the following cars and trucks should remove their floor mats and not replace them until Toyota has equipped the vehicle with a replacement mat that can be effectively secured in place.
2007 - 2010 Toyota Camry
2005 - 2010 Toyota Avalon
2004 - 2009 Toyota Prius
2005 - 2010 Toyota Tacoma
2007 - 2010 Toyota Tundra
2007 - 2010 Lexus ES350
2006 - 2010 Lexus IS250 and IS350

12 WORST types of Facebookers...

Article from
Thanks to John Landy for the link

CNN -- Facebook, for better or worse, is like being at a big party with all your friends, family, acquaintances and co-workers.

Facebook can be a great tool, and an occasional annoyance. What kind of Facebooker are you?

There are lots of fun, interesting people you're happy to talk to when they stroll up. Then there are the other people, the ones who make you cringe when you see them coming. This article is about those people.

Sure, Facebook can be a great tool for keeping up with folks who are important to you. Take the status update, the 160-character message that users post in response to the question, "What's on your mind?" An artful, witty or newsy status update is a pleasure -- a real-time, tiny window into a friend's life.

But far more posts read like navel-gazing diary entries, or worse, spam. A recent study categorized 40 percent of Twitter tweets as "pointless babble," and it wouldn't be surprising if updates on Facebook, still a fast-growing social network, break down in a similar way. Take a CNN quiz: What kind of Facebooker are you? »

Combine dull status updates with shameless self-promoters, "friend-padders" and that friend of a friend who sends you quizzes every day, and Facebook becomes a daily reminder of why some people can get on your nerves. Watch as Facebookers reveal bugbears »

Here are 12 of the most annoying types of Facebook users:

The Let-Me-Tell-You-Every-Detail-of-My-Day Bore. "I'm waking up." "I had Wheaties for breakfast." "I'm bored at work." "I'm stuck in traffic." You're kidding! How fascinating! No moment is too mundane for some people to broadcast unsolicited to the world. Just because you have 432 Facebook friends doesn't mean we all want to know when you're waiting for the bus.

The Self-Promoter. OK, so we've probably all posted at least once about some achievement. And sure, maybe your friends really do want to read the fascinating article you wrote about beet farming. But when almost EVERY update is a link to your blog, your poetry reading, your 10k results or your art show, you sound like a bragger or a self-centered careerist.

The Friend-Padder. The average Facebook user has 120 friends on the site. Schmoozers and social butterflies -- you know, the ones who make lifelong pals on the subway -- might reasonably have 300 or 400. But 1,000 "friends?" Unless you're George Clooney or just won the lottery, no one has that many. That's just showing off.

The Town Crier. "Michael Jackson is dead!!!" You heard it from me first! Me, and the 213,000 other people who all saw it on TMZ. These Matt Drudge wannabes are the reason many of us learn of breaking news not from TV or news sites but from online social networks. In their rush to trumpet the news, these people also spread rumors, half-truths and innuendo. No, Jeff Goldblum did not plunge to his death from a New Zealand cliff.

The TMIer. "Brad is heading to Walgreens to buy something for these pesky hemorrhoids." Boundaries of privacy and decorum don't seem to exist for these too-much-information updaters, who unabashedly offer up details about their sex lives, marital troubles and bodily functions. Thanks for sharing.

The Bad Grammarian. "So sad about Fara Fauset but Im so gladd its friday yippe". Yes, I know the punctuation rules are different in the digital world. And, no, no one likes a spelling-Nazi schoolmarm. But you sound like a moron.

The Sympathy-Baiter. "Barbara is feeling sad today." "Man, am I glad that's over." "Jim could really use some good news about now." Like anglers hunting for fish, these sad sacks cast out their hooks -- baited with vague tales of woe -- in the hopes of landing concerned responses. Genuine bad news is one thing, but these manipulative posts are just pleas for attention.

The Lurker. The Peeping Toms of Facebook, these voyeurs are too cautious, or maybe too lazy, to update their status or write on your wall. But once in a while, you'll be talking to them and they'll mention something you posted, so you know they're on your page, hiding in the shadows. It's just a little creepy.

The Crank. These curmudgeons, like the trolls who spew hate in blog comments, never met something they couldn't complain about. "Carl isn't really that impressed with idiots who don't realize how idiotic they are." [Actual status update.] Keep spreading the love.

The Paparazzo. Ever visit your Facebook page and discover that someone's posted a photo of you from last weekend's party -- a photo you didn't authorize and haven't even seen? You'd really rather not have to explain to your mom why you were leering like a drunken hyena and French-kissing a bottle of Jagermeister.

The Obscurist. "If not now then when?" "You'll see..." "Grist for the mill." "John is, small world." "Dave thought he was immune, but no. No, he is not." [Actual status updates, all.] Sorry, but you're not being mysterious -- just nonsensical.

The Chronic Inviter. "Support my cause. Sign my petition. Play Mafia Wars with me. Which 'Star Trek' character are you? Here are the 'Top 5 cars I have personally owned.' Here are '25 Things About Me.' Here's a drink. What drink are you? We're related! I took the 'What President Are You?' quiz and found out I'm Millard Fillmore! What president are you?"

You probably mean well, but stop. Just stop. I don't care what president I am -- can't we simply be friends? Now excuse me while I go post the link to this story on my Facebook page.

This is wrong. so fricken' wrong

I only post this because bullying is real! This makes me so mad... mad that nobody stepped in quickly, that the second guy TRIED to hit the kid too? At least the kid who stopped that stepped in. Nice work for helping! But seriously?

DO NOT WATCH this unless you're prepared and comfortable with seeing a fistfight. So wrong.

Patrick Swayze and Lisa Niemi

Relatively few Hollywood marriages stand the test of time, so when one comes along that so clearly exudes love and sincerity, you tend to take notice. Patrick Swayze and Lisa Niemi were one such couple, and their 34-year marriage was a lesson in dedication and survival through good times and bad.

They led a relatively quiet life together -- for years spending most of their time at his horse ranch near Los Angeles, where he died Monday after battling cancer. But over the years, he's been outspoken in discussing the beautiful nature of their relationship

What are your taxi concerns? Forum it!

I was trying to find the City info on tonights Taxi forum, but I think I googled the presenters speech that you might here tonight... weird. Anyway, from the city of Calgary website: (link to survey at bottom)

Taxi Forum
Good evening everyone and welcome to the Community Forum.

Tonight we will discuss the latest draft of the proposed Livery Transportation Bylaw (or the Taxi bylaw). I would first like to introduce you to our panel for this evening's forum: Ald. Andre Chabot, Ald. Dianne Colley Urquhart, Ald. Barry Erskine, Ald. Helen Laroque, and Ald. Ric Mc Iver. I'm Ald. Ray Jones and this evening's facilitator.

I will give a brief overview of tonight's meeting and present how we will proceed. The intent of this evening's forum is to hear your concerns about the proposed final draft of the Livery Transport bylaw. Specifically, we are here only to listen to your concerns. This is NOT a formal meeting of council and NO decisions will be made here tonight.

We would appreciate it, if you would focus on the new bylaw in the areas of governance, licenses and regulations. If you wish to address other items such as fares, differential fares, limos and sedans please send us a note or take one of our business cards which are available from us. In reality we just won't have the time tonight to deal with everything.

We are here tonight to listen to your concerns and have no intention to be confrontational. We are trying to be proactive and positive and sincerely wish to hear the industry's wants in the new bylaw and not just what they don't like. We also do not want to hear about complaints or personality conflicts, if you remain focused, we will to.

A brief overview of the evening is as follows:

2 minute opening remarks by each Alderman
Taxi Industry overview by Mr Tim Bardsley
Questions by Panel
Comments by Brokers/drivers and society reps
Stakeholder concerns
Each speaker will be given 5 minutes and to be fair to everybody please be reasonable and try to stay in this time frame as we only have 2 hours and would like to hear from as many people as possible.

Also please do not get upset when I announce the cut-off time at 9:00 p.m.

I will now proceed with opening comments from my colleagues.

Sounds like a speech to me. if you can't go, there is a web survey.

HERE'S the taxi link! CLICK ME!
