Time flies!

I can't believe that Thanksgiving is this week! Where does the time go? It just feels like Halloween was last week.

So last week, Em and I were in Indianapolis for one of her cousins weddings. It is always a good time to go home with her and hang out with her family. We did many things in the days we were there. Here are a couple of highlights.

Em and I went to see the Bodies Exhibit between the wedding and the evening reception. If you're interested in the human body and how it works, this is one exhibit for you. Here is a link to the website http://www.bodiestheexhibition.com/.

The second highlight was going to the Colts vs Texans game at the new Lucas Oil Stadium. The new stadium is so much nicer than the old RCA Dome. The seats are spaciaous, comfortable, and offer lots of leg room. As usual, great seats again... 9 rows back on the 35 yard line. It was a close game, but a good game.

Em and I got home on Monday and back to the work week for both of us. This past weekend, we did lots of little projects around the house.

This week is another short week, but I will probably have to help Mike out at FOA this weekend. He wants to upgrade the hard drives on their server. So, this coming weekend will probably be shot.

September Craziness!

Well... the crazy month of September is upon us and almost gone. Quick updates....

Labor Day Weekend - Hung around town and went scuba diving

2nd weekend - Saco River Canoe Trip! What a blast we canoed in a Hurricane. Actually just camped along the river when Hannah hit. Rained all night but it was still a great weekend.

3rd weekend - worked on my house in Mariaville. The house is officially on the market... check it out at http://www.mariavilleroad.info/. Still need to find a new home for the cats.

4th weekend - did chores around both houses. Went to the Common Ground Fair on Sunday.

This coming weekend... building some french drains along the front of the house.

Oh My Mia

So last night after getting home and mowing the grass, Em and I decided to go see Mama Mia! This was a fun movie to go see... the only part that really got to me was watching James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) sing. It was a pretty fast paced movie and the music has always been good. I give this film a A. Shawn... you should suck it up and see it... you can score some major points that way.

After the movie, we ended up heading home and did some cleanup around the house.

Tonight is Poker night!

I have been so horrible at updating this thing... sometimes I wonder why I continue to do this Blog. Let see... recent updates.

Moved in to a new house with my Girlfriend... it's so nice to be back in Bar Harbor. Finishing the second floor off at my old house and then putting it on the market.

My family was up for a visit.

Some friends of ours just got married.

Some other friends just had a baby boy!

Been DJ'ing lots and not diving enough.

Scallops, BANFF

So, its been a super busy since the last update. Scallop season started on December 1st, so we've been doing a lot of diving for scallops. So much so, that the local newspaper came out and did an article on us. You can see the article at http://www.underwatersuperhero.com/ under the news section.

Below are 2 pictures that didn't make the article.

Some facts about the 2 dives we did that day:

Dive 1
Air temp: 44 degrees F
Water temp: 36 degrees F
Maximum depth: 61 feet
Dive time: 17 Minutes
Scallops caught: 32

Dive 2
Air temp: 41 degrees F
Water temp: 34 degrees F
Maximum depth: 46Feet
Dive time: 21 Minutes
Scallops caught: 27

The season ends on April 15th... so many more weekends of diving to follow. With a recreational scallop license you can take up to 9lbs per day. My max for 1 day was 5 lbs.

This weekend is the big Banff Film Festival weekend in Bar Harbor. We have friends coming in from all over the east coast and Michigan. I can remember taking Fri and Monday off and getting here on Thursday night. Of course now that I live here, I work all day Friday and on Monday.... Damn that sucks!

Anyhow, I hope to have another update for you next week!
