Pause, Ponder and Pun

On your mark, get set...caption!

Okay, some of you guys have a great track record, coming in first place several times. It's time for an upstart to cross the finish line. Let's see if we can pass the baton to someone else this week. On the other hand, perhaps one of you previous winners can shatter the Dufus world record with a new number of wins!

See you Saturday...


Pick me! Pick me!

(My caption... not my shameless attempt to garner another Dufus award... or IS it?)

Relays were so much more elegant before the Kenyans got involved.

We told him they were two hot Playboy twins running.

Looks as if Dolly Parton will take second place in the Country Music Marathon.

Martina McBride is clearly the winner in this year's Country Music Marathon. Dolly Parton places second.

I have no idea how to caption it,but I have to give those guys credit,running in heels is hard as shit.
Now the race is on and here comes pride up the back stretch
Heartaches are going to the inside
My tears are holding back, trying not to fall
My heart's out of the running
True love's scratched for another's sake
The race is on and it looks like heartaches
And the winner loses all

The Race is On ~ Don Rollins
Thanks to his unprecedented success in finding a new outfit at the annual Barneys Warehouse Sale, Frank knew that he'd won the race long before he got to the track with the other "girls."
Frank realized he'd won the 12th annual "Chicks with Sticks 5K Run for the Gloryhole" when Tom blew out his left nut on turn three and fell far behind.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)

Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...

I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
