Paul McCartney: Out There Tour
Less than an hour ago Kevin Donnelly and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers announced a major concert event for Winnipeg. Sir Paul McCartney will play Investors Group Field on August 12, 2013.
This is Sir Paul’s first appearance in Winnipeg since his New World Tour played the Winnipeg Stadium in 1993. I was a wide-eyed 23-year-old at the time and it was the biggest show I had ever been to. It’s long been a night that I hoped to repeat. With luck I’ll be in the crowd August 12th at Investors Group Field.
Tickets go on sale April 29, 2013 at 10 am local time. Ranging in price from $35 to $250.

Ok, people I am not going to lie this video clip is one of the most brilliant and disturbing things I have ever seen on the net. I just finished watching it over at Mixed Drinks and Hungover Thoughts. Basically it’s a Spanish or Mexican pizza commercial.
It is just simply over the top with imagery, too messed up for words. Check it out for yourself. There is a closed caption option for those who do not understand the language. Click the tiny ‘cc’ button on the bottom of the Youtube player.
Last night Dar and I took our nephew Eric out for a night of Winnipeg Christmas tradition, we took a spin on the Assiniboine Valley Railway.

In the early 1980’s Bill Taylor, a model train enthusiast with a large property in Charleswood was doing an expansion to his house and had a vision. He dreamed of taking the 1000 foot HO gauge railway that he had in his basement and moving it outside to create a train mecca in Winnipeg.
