At my son's hockey game last night I was recruited to help behind the bench. Only one official coach had been able to make it to the game so I became defensive coach for the night. My main skill was opening the gate and calling the players in. However my encouraging shouts immediately preceded our only goal, by a defenseman. So I feel successful even though we did lose... And I had the best seat in the house.

  1. Off topic: You've got that Tom-Hanks-smile. Congrats on that- and your blog!

  2. Hi there!

    Im an Irish lass living in London and on April 17th im runnning the london marathon. In a bid to draw up some attention from the blog commnity I am holding a blog marathon on 11th March...

    It is an opportunity to bring the blogging community together and also raise awareness of your blog.

    The idea for my post http://everythingirish.blogspot.com/ is that I blog for 26.2 hours placing a post up every half an hour. hopefully if I can drum up enough interest so that people will read my blog and maybe donate some money to a good cause (raising £1500 for ActionAid who help fight poverty).

    But anyone can join in this blog marathon. Just for fun, to attract people to there site, to drum up business, or like me trying to raise money for charity.

    Check out http://blogmarathon.blogspot.com/ if you would like to join this blog marathon.

    my running blog is


    Spread the word!


    PS even if you can only make it for some of the time it would be good to see you there. thx

  3. Jules: Thanks! I wish I could read German. :-(
    mmitch: Interesting idea. I'll be watching!
