I've never been overly enamoured with Ottawa and yes I've tried, after all I've lived here for 20 years. Yes, it is pretty, it is scenic and it is full of outdoor parks and areas of recreation. It is also full of boring, stuffy politics's and politician's who bleed our system and generally only look out for their own welfare.
The thought of stopping my blog had crossed my mind while I took my bloggy sabbatical, but I just would miss all of you too much. You have inspired me, certainly you have enlightened me with all you do and you have introduced me to sports which I would have never, ever known about.
Cyclo-cross for one. Between Judi and Blue, they introduced me to a sport that looks like such a blast, I'd consider doing it. This summer, while volunteering at the Canada Day Race I met a woman who is involved with Cyclo-cross here in the Ottawa area. I had mentioned that if they ever needed volunteer's to let me know. Well, I haven't heard from them, but ran across this today....no wonder I haven't heard from them yet...they have enough on their plate.
City pulls bike racing permits after park damaged
Yup, Ottawa, the city fun forgot....
Life's fun if you don't weaken
ps. I'll try to touch base with them to volunteer, who knows, maybe even try it!
