I'm in Vancouver sitting in Princess Amy's livingroom. I have already made a good dent in my New Years Resolution. Amy and I are going to go to the gym later (she has a gym in her building - sweet!) and she'll do some crazy workout while I try not to lose a lung. I really need to get back on the work-out train and this is a good way to do it.

In other news, Ben and I spotted a beaver a few nights ago down the road from my folk's place. It was in a section of the Don River that goes through the Donalda golf course. We have been looking for it ever since and have been going up and down the river in various sections looking for signs that our beaver had been there. Last night we spotted him again! This time in a section of the river under the Don Valley Parkway. Unfortunately, after a few minutes, he scented us and gave a nice warning slap before disappearing up-river. Fortunately, we got to see him and some nice big trees he's working on felling. We thinking the one yesterday looks smaller than the original beaver we saw but the perspective was different. Woudln't it be exciting if there were two! Hopefully when I get back to town in 2 weeks after my elective in Vancouver we'll have more time to beaver hunt. And hey, get your mind out of the gutter!

There's a whole group of beavers who live just down the river from my parents' place... everyone calls the whole region "the beaver dam" for that reason!

Have fun in Vancouver; good luck with the workout :)
