Monthly archives: November 2004

I just celebrated my first Thanksgiving since 1999. I do think that it is a bit strange that we have a holiday about “giving thanks” that derived from taking land and freedom from our native Indians.

I will say one thing, USAers know how to eat!! Since I have been back (after my 4 years in Australia) my first thought was that their where lots more USAers! Then I finally noticed that their are not more people, everyone has just grown a little WIDER. I heard on the radio, that airlines are loosing 2 billion dollars (or some crazy high number) on gas prices to compensate for the growth in weight.

So to sum up, I got to celebrate Thanksgiving with a HUGE meal. Just like Oktoberfest is a great holiday to celebrate with the biggest drinking country in the world, Thanksgiving is a great holiday to celebrate with the biggest eating country in the world!!

Ok so from now on I am going to call people from the US, USAers. When I went to South America and was asked where I was from, I noticed that “America” just wouldn’t do, because they are also American. Since Canadians usually don’t like it when people ask if they are from the states. That is why I think that travelling Canadians almost always have flags on their packs. So I have decided to start refering to people that are from the States, USAers.

    Great idea, I will be putting together my "USAers" campaign soon. First I'll have to see if www.usaers.com is taken!

    Keep up the good work.

New updates to my site…

1. Photos- Climbing- I have added a few pages here about climbing in North Carolina and Alabama. I was amazed to find one of the best climbing spots ( that I have been to) just 3 hours north of Atlanta!! Nice multi pitched trad crack climbing! It helps a lot that I now have a really good climbing partner (Barry from my Photos-friends page) that is willing to lead me up trad!

2. Photos- Friends pics of this post production office I did some photos for. Also the Susan Koman and Ga Tech football pages are pretty new.

3. Well you might have already noticed, I have taken down my exhibition site and added my Blog instead. Now I can ramble to people all over the world at the same time!!

Hopefully soon I would liek to add some best of pages. For example, best of climbing, best travel photos, and I really need to fix up my about me page.
