Another shot in 2012

I really loved our "12 hours in photos" days and would like to suggest we give it another go now that it's 2012. If anyone's up for it lets find a good date and give it a go!

Who's in? Date?

12 (11hrs) in the greater Calgary Area

First off, I must apologize for not getting all 13 images. Both of my sons play on the same hockey team, I'm a coach, and we had a 7:15am game. I forgot my camera in the van and couldn't leave the bench during the game. So, I started at 9am.

9am - Airdrie Alberta - quick grocery store stop
10am - fuel up at starbucks
11am - it's a shopping day. at least there are a few stores for the guys.
12am - hockey life store
1pm - lunch (however terrible it may be...)
2pm - my little girl loves shopping. especially when there's mirrors
3pm - driving home to Strathmore
4pm - hitting the local skating pond
5pm - still playing pond hockey
6pm - supper. (probably one of the worst days for us - nutritionally speaking)
7pm - a movie for the family, and one for my wife and I
8pm - finish the day by trying a new beer.

Comment Moderation: ON

Due to the increase of worthless slimy dirty rotten scum trying to sell their wares or get link to their sites on this blog, I've opted to turn ON comment moderation. I hope this doesn't come as too much of a headache for you all, and I will try to respond very quickly to the comments left. When a comment is posted, I get an email, and I can approve the comment from that email. Since I carry mobile computing devices, I'm able to post a legitimate comment within a few hours at the most, usually within minutes. I've had to do the same to my personal blog, and nothing gets under my skin like some dirtbag trying to cash in on the effort that I as blogger put into each post, to drum up their stupid business. To me, it's borderline minor theft.

Personally I love comments on my blog. I love to hear what others think about the content that I put forward. But don't try and use the efforts that we put out blogging, creating interesting content and generating traffic, to sell your crap. Spam commenters, you disgust me and you are so done leaving your smelly crap on this here blog! Eat that!

We now return to regular scheduled programming.
