  3. *yawn*

    I love the smell of coffee and Icarex in the morning! :)

  4. 1 bus away from getting into the short customs line, but it's a big bus. :P

  5. 17 hour jet lag has me awake... Gotta get some rest for my flight to DC with Spence tomorrow (driving on to Wildwood from there), time for an audio book - usually does the job. :)

  6. 3 more days 'till my birthday, but ai'll take it where I can get it... Love to you all!

  7. A little wet, but high spirits at the Montreal Kite Festival!

  8. A word of advice to all... Any time you buy *anything* online, before checking out I suggest you do a Google search for "X coupon code", like "GoDaddy coupon code", "Hotel.com coupon", "Budget car coupon", etc... No joke, I probably save $1000 or more per year by spending 2 minutes doing this before every online purchase. ;)

  9. After today, depending on the final implant work, I'll likely provide the contact for my dentist to anyone who wants it. ;)

  10. Ahhh... Severely variable wind today, 0-6 mph, switching directions every couple of minutes... Great exercise, flew dual and quad equal amounts of time today.

    Time for a movie at home while my legs stop humming... A hug and kiss for TK, maybe a nice hard cider too. *yum*

  11. Alright, going offline for now... Looking forward to exploring some of this beautiful city today, best wishes and love to ALL, reall, ALL... Time is moving, the future is what we make of it.

  12. Alright, x-ray shows great results, healing well, just waiting for the lab to finish my temporary bridge... Then he'll install that, and the two temporary crowns on my implants... Should be back in the USA this afternoon.

  13. Any of you kitefliers out there in the world, do you work with **Joomla** professionally? I'm finding myself in need of a little education, and would love to have a couple more folks that I could call on with simple questions. :)

  14. Anyone else thinking of flying at Delta Park today? :)

  15. Anyone from outside the USA and Canada coming to AKA Convention in Seaside OR this year? I'm really looking forward to this one and just want to be sure we recognize. :)

  16. Anyone have a current email address for Andy Selzer? If so, please send me a PM - thanks!

  17. Anyone who is having issues with the Kymera wingtip end caps coming off, watch from 2:28 in this video... The caps are snug when this is done correctly. ;)

    It's not complicated, but I've met a couple of folks that didn't understand the info sheet that comes with the kite. ;)

  18. At the border, quite a wait for most (2-3 hours)... Taking the Mexicoach shuttle jumps ahead in line (compared to walking across), maybe 45-60 minutes... No tooth pain, a little hungry, but ok. ;)

  19. Boarded, check!

    Aisle seat, check!

    Club atmosphere, check!

    First time on a Virgin Airline, pretty posh! USB, all inclusive food and drink. :)

  20. Busted! Hard core flier award goes to John Kennedy, caught flying in the park near our hotel - good chat and fly, watching giant fruit bats in the trees. :)

    10am tomorrow, the Redcliffe Rev Clinic begins!

  21. Celebrating our 2nd anniversary today, will be off the grid for part of the day. :)

  22. Coffee, danish, friends (having meeting now and couldn't list everyone, ready to fly!

  23. Couldn't wait, on our way to Long Beach now! :)

  24. Crap and double crap again... Had the fly of my life yesterday afternoon, came back to the room and had dinner with TK, was going to take a 1 hour nap before the AKA evening activities... Our alarm didn't even phase us, SO tired, slept right through it.

    Sigh... Today is a new day. lol
