Start spreading the news, I’m leaving today

For those of you in North America who have been living under a rock this summer, Yankee Stadium has hosted it’s last baseball game. If you’re keeping score, the Bronx Bombers beat the Baltimore Orioles.

Yankee Stadium has not only been the site of many World Series championships. It has also hosted concerts, political rallys as well as the Pope!

However, it will probably be best remembered as The House that Ruth Built. Babe Ruth was arguably the best baseball player who ever rounded the bases.

Many bloggers and media types have already highlighted the many events that have taken place at The Cathedral. So, I won’t even attempt to do that here.

What I bring to you are pictures of a trip I took this past summer with my brother and sister to Yankee Stadium to watch our beloved Toronto Blue Jays beat up on those pesky Yankees.

I hope you enjoy!

New York City – 9/11/2008

I recently had the opportunity to visit New York City a couple of weeks ago.

I visited the former site of the World Trade Center as well as St. James Church where they have a memorial. Let’s just say that this weighed heavy on my heart.

What are your thoughts or memories?

Just dropped by to say “Hello!”



Well, actually, I realized it has been a while since I committed my thoughts to keyboard. However, I will promise you this: I will have a couple of topics to focus on in the near future.

First, Ramadan. This is considered to be the holiest month in the Muslim calendar. Many Muslims will observe this month by participating in a month long fast during the daytime hours. So, I will let you know how I’m doing in my fast. Today is day 2 and things are going well despite this cold that won’t go away.

I’ll also have some thoughts and observations about my recent “sibling” trip to New York City. Wow! What a city!

Finally, expect some election rambling. Not just for our cousins south of the 49th. In Canada, we expect to head to the polls mid-October. So, thoughts will be a-plenty for sure!

To everyone who is back in school – Thanks for the increased traffic!!!!
