Everyone loves suits, no not the show (although I highly recommend that as well), but rather the attire. Suits are fascinating in part because there are so many different styles and cuts available. From the simplistic two button design to the more bold double-breasted, 3 button style. The decisions don't stop at the jacket, however, as one must then consider the appropriate dress shirt, tie, pocket square, socks, shoes and the list goes on and on.
Admittedly, I'm a bit of a traffic snob; certain things bother me a little more than they should. None more than in the brief moments well past the yellow light, milliseconds before the red, when that one car tries to sneak by. As a result, leaving themselves in the middle of the intersection causing delays for the "law abiding" citizens on the opposite side now unable to turn. A decision made to benefit ourselves at the direct expense of others - selfishness.

My wife and I wanted to host a fall kickoff party filled with friends, great food, an outdoor theatre for the kids and a campfire; an all out celebration to mark the end of a great summer. It was going to be great and I could literally visualize the party and how it would play out. We set a date and started working on the little details. I purchased a brand new outdoor fire pit for the campfire and contacted the screen rental company for our outdoor theatre. My wife had worked on the decorations and menu. Everything was set, except the guest list.
I have always been a motorbike guy; it could be because I spent a large part of my teenage years in Haiti riding dirt bikes from village to village through picturesque tropical terrains to barren desert-like landscapes. It could also be the notion that you can't explain the freedom you have when you fall in love with the open road. Moving back to Canada marked a sad day for me as I had to leave my bike behind. I recently restored my loss and purchased my first bike since owning one in Haiti. I couldn't just buy a brand new bike; I wanted something that reminded me of that first bike I owned. I ended up finding a 1982 Honda CB650 in mint condition.
