I've decided to check off an item from my "Bucket list" I plan on running a marathon. I've never been interested in blogging, or thought anyone would want to read any blog I wrote, but what the heck, the writing is good mental exercise. This was a goal for 2010, but a back injury made me fall just short of that goal. But I still ran a 1:48 1/2 marathon. I updated my 2010 blog about this goal. You can follow along if you show choose.

I've started a new sport. New to participate in anyway. Back in early 70s when my family first got cable TV we had a couple of stations from Southern Ontario. I quickly became fascinated with the sport of Curling. At first my fascination came with trying to figure out what was going on and what where those crazy people doing with those brooms?

After a while I figured it out and actually enjoyed the matches learning the strategy and following certain teams. I've always wanted to give it a try. However, when I moved to Columbus, Ohio in 1977 I moved even further from the sport. In 1998 Curling became an Olympic medal sport and despite NBC's best efforts to hide it, I saw a few matches on TV. I began to search for places to try out this sport. Finally, when the NHL brought a hockey team to Columbus and with it Canadians!. Now it appears there is enough interest in our area that a brand new Curling league is starting and I am a charter member. More pictures, info, and a curling page as time permits.

On 5/6/06 We returned from our 25th anniversary Caribbean cruise. We left 4/29/06 and were in the Virgin Islands on our anniversary date. Below is a picture of the ship sailed on, The Voyager of the Seas. That was our first cruise. Our 30th anniversary is coming up and we will be cruising the Virgin Islands again!

I also use this page to share some of my other interests such as Amateur Astronomy. I live in Columbus, Ohio with my wife Gina McCall (Thoma) I am originally from Wesleyville, PA, which is just outside Erie, PA. I am a 1977 graduate of Iroquois High School.
