Well what do you know! Seems I’m a German Citizen

I wrote about the question of German citizenship last week and how my daughter Kayla prompted this. The hunt involved looking through a paper archive and uncovering a number of very interesting documents. Well I can now report that it looks like I’ve been a dual Canadian-German citizen for some time without knowing it! I …

Hello 2015

Not for the first time I’ve been amiss in keeping my blog up to date. It’s not that I don’t have anything to say. Nor is it that I haven’t been doing interesting things. I’ll have to give some thought in the days & weeks ahead to consider what it actually is. For now I’ll …

A different look

My “work clothes” have changed quite a bit in the past 2 years (yes, it has been almost that long) so it was a little odd to get back into a previous look yesterday. I did though. Here, you can see for yourself… a shot from earlier this month taken in Louisville KY and another …

Finished Touches

About a month ago I posted an entry with a shot of the first Bamboo Bike Studio Toronto Frame being built. Since then, the video I put together has gone live (link below) and three custom ‘boo frames were displayed and put up for sale today. All very exciting stuff. I’m very proud of Steff’s …

A walk in the woods

Andrea and I met up with our friend Liz for a hike along the Bruce Trail on the weekend; a perfect opportunity for some late autumn photos. The new background is one of them… Tiffany Falls in the Dundas Valley Conservation Area. I took along my 5D MkII with the 16-35 lens and played with …

From First Race to Last Race

What an amazing experience this first part of my next chapter has been… from the first race in April that still had snow on the ground to a final race at Albion Hills that was a muddy cyclo-cross shortly before December began. The 2011 cycling season is now a wrap and I had a blast …

Older than…

I had a private celebration yesterday (October 10th); it’s the “anniversary” of the day my father died. I have now outlived him, as has my older brother Rolf. Still miss you dad…

Another “30 years ago” moment

I’ve written earlier about starting at IBM 30 years ago, retiring after 30 years, my father’s 30 year watch from Leitz… today marks one of the inspirations for my 30 years. Happy 30th birthday, Steff!
