        June 2nd, Pings & Wings

The NHL is sadly drawing its long post-season to a close. It's been a great season for the Wings again - hopefully one that will end the same way as last season. But little has been said over this side of the river of the success of the Spits. The Windsor Spitfires won the Ontario Hocket league and then went on to win the Memorial Cup making them the top young Hockey Team in Canada (http://new.windsorspitfires.com/). I only caught a few of their games as they're harder to catch online than the wings, but what I saw was a great team. Congrats spits, tet's go Redwings, whack some pings!

With ice hockey ending it's time for the cook-out season to really get into a swing...

Thanks to Rich Terfry for mentioning the link below in his radio show. Along with Joby Talbot's similarities it's generating a reflective mood today.

        May 24th, A fine and fancy ramble

Five years in Detroit and until this weekend I'd never been into the zoo. Ridden past it many times, checked the water tower weekly for the name of the current mayor, but never been in.

OK - so put a check mark next to the zoo ...

        April 10th, Opening Day

Great to have the Tigers playing again. The opening weekend in Comerica was a little cold but great fun.
