    That will be a killer 'mini vacation'. Did you get your seats for the Derby?

    Know anyone trying to sell HR Derby tix at a steep discount? :D

    Shit, I didn't even notice it was getting dark out (down in the dungeon). That's a nice skyline, can almost figure out your address by it! (just a few landmarks I recognize)

    Note to self...if you want to go to bed at 9 pm, don't re-hook up your WD passport drive with 15K+ songs on it at 8:30 pm and expect to get to bed on time. Especially if you are drinking a beer and have one more in the fridge.

    Listening to Led Zeppelin BBC sessions, recorded in 1969 and 1971.

    Yup, Ramble On was in the mix. The one more beer in the fridge got me to bed before 10:15, so I'm fine this morning. I do take a chance though since there is a rather large supply of dry red wine within 10 feet of me @ 62*F. That occasionally leads to a much later bed time.

    We have some visitors from Paraguay staying with us this week, so I took them to Toronto yesterday. We went to Ripleys Aquarium, CN tower, and the Royal Ontario Museum.

    CN Tower photos are from observation deck, over 1100ft up. We didn't go to Skypod this trip, it's another 300 ft higher.
    Their kids loved it, never been to anything like that.
    Today my Wife took them to MarineLand, which is like a Seaworld. They are having tons of fun there too, and no lines (it's been boycotted a lot recently which has drastically reduced attendance). Their kids have never been on rollercoasters or similar before.

    Racked a Pino Grigio , a frozen pail from last fall. Bottled a couple to see what they taste like.

    Went to the Home Run Derby and the All Star Game. Both events were great but more so was the entire experience. I can't think of any team that wasn't represented by someone. There were groups of 3 and 4 in which all of them represented different teams. Several people represented different teams with their jerseys and hats. We were in left field for the derby and 2 balls were really close but not close enough. I was surprised how many young kids were there considering the cost of the tickets until I saw how many activities they had for them. Definately way more then they had for the adults. Would do it again in a heart beat.

    Road Trip! Likely driving past a handful of my winemaking buddies cruising past Baltimore, DC, now down Virginia on our way to Williamsburg VA.

    Jim and I are only 17 miles off the beltway, mostly all highway, if you need to stretch your legs on the way back.

    I know that spot very well. About 30 yards down the hill you have Italian wine tasting. :dg
