Today is another “D” Day - with the D standing for Dentist - not looking forward to this at all.


Saw  this on FB - Churchill was famous for his quotes and wonderful speeches plus his like for good Scotch.

So if this is true of being 60 - then for sure nobody gives a damn about what you think when you are over 80 !!

Forgot to mention that we heard from Tino Marin last week - says he is doing well flying helicopter for one of the media channels but has  not ridden a bike since he moved to Toronto.


In other news - We were able to donate $830 to the Cancer fund from the Ady & Peter Brown  Memorial Trials - A very worthy cause and a big thanks to all who put on the event and made contributions.   ( I think we have now donated something in the region of $5k since we started doing this.)

I see that Albert Cabestany is on the injured list  - a pic of the Beta Factory rider was posted on FB, with his arm all taped up. - Seems he was in getting surgery on his elbow.

At the Hall of Fame Gala - I failed to note who it was that presented me with my award, but it seems his name is Josh Baron, and he is a rep for Yamaha Motor Canada. - So thanks to him for that.

Another nice Golden Oldie - a 1954 DKW three cylinder road racer - the two strokes of that era had fantastic performance - but were prone to seizures.  - Riders of these were used to having one finger on the clutch (long before it became the norm for Trials riders).

And finally ! -we got a nice email from Bill Brown ( owner of Wulfsport UK)  he had seen the Hall of Fame photo and remarked that it was nice to put a face to the name after all these years of doing business.


So the Postal Service has been ordered back to work - funny thing is that even with the work slow down - all our bills arrived on time - only the cheques appear to have been held up !!!!
