RIP Leslie Nielsen
Louis is feeling confident. But I think I have him worried.
Or maybe it's the hat.
Still about an hour and a half to the game, kick-off is at 18.00 ET. You can figure out the local time here. I'll probably end up being awake 'til after 2.
And if you can't watch the game on telly it's bing streamed online here.
Be sure to come back and join our Grey Cup party. Louis and I are going to share hosting based on the toss.

At the minute I'm waiting on a few things.
Waiting for the fire to catch, the wood is a bit damp.
Waiting for supper, though that won't be for another hour or so.
Waiting for a Skype call from the brother and his family - because Skype is cool.
Waiting on some paperwork. I can't say more.
Waiting for some post. Ditto
Waiting to meet my nephew face to face. He's getting so big.
What are you waiting for?

It's not even close
So what's yours?
I was in Dublin on Tuesday, bringing the Mammy up to the airport. She's off to be with the new family for a month. Since her flight was first thing I decided to make a day of it. I had picked a few options for what to do and with the help of Desiree (and Google) I eventually choose the Natural History branch of the National Museum of Ireland. Colourfully nicknamed 'The Dead Zoo'.
Now it was mainly for the price - admission is free - but I would have gladly paid. The variety and number of specimens are mind blowing.
The main floor is devoted to Irish animals. And must have examples of every species found on and around the island.
The second floor is where the "exotic" animals are displayed. I was a bit nervous going up the stairs.
Since the musuem was only recently re-opened after an incident. But it turns out my fears were unfounded.
Again, the exhibits were mind blowing.
That's two whale skeletons hanging from the ceiling.
Not everything is quite so dramatic but still nice to see.
While it was extremely interesting, some displays were macabre
bordering on shocking
But this museum is practically a museum in of itself. The entire collection is from a different age.
It's a shame that the upper galleries are still closed.
I can only imagine what treasures were waiting up there though I did get some hints.
Desiree got quite a workout, these are only a fraction of the photos I took. Please check out the rest of the album.
The museum wasn't all I saw of the city.
Friends only post thataway.
Finally realised I forgot the link for phone surfers.
Sorry phone surfers, here's your link.
And a little something from another Canadian to keep you rockin'.
I then proceed to muck things up further so I couldn't go back.
I knew that there were some new posts and comments so I figured the only way to find them was to go visit all my friends blogs one by one and check the recent posts.
As I did I was struck by how many blogs has not been updated in a long time. And how many friends seem to have left the OC.
What happened? Where did they go? Are they ok? I guess we may never know.
But yesterday was half descent so we decided to head for the sea. Specifically the lighthouse at Hook Head.
Just to add to the adventure we went by way of Passage East and took the ferry.
You can't really make them out, but on the cliffs were a herd of goats that we drove by down to the village. There was no way to stop and we didn't have time to go back as we just caught the ferry. Otherwise I would have gotten some close-ups. There were some real Puck goats in the herd.
The lighthouse is well set up as an attraction. There was a good restaurant, a play area for children, even free Wi-Fi Though I didn't have time to use it.
The tour of the lighthouse was very good. The guide was great - friendly and knowledgeable - and there were some stunning views.
After the tour we took a short walk along the shore. Mom spotted a seal popping its head up for a look but everytime I tried for a photo it stubbornly stayed under until the rain, which had held off up to then, started and we headed back to the car.
We took a different route home, stopping in New Ross for a coffee and then on through Inistioge, Thomastown, and Bennettsbridge. Always a lovely drive.
