This Saturday marked the 5th Anniversary for Niagara Falls’ coolest shop, Pulp Comics.
The proprietor of the establishment, Paul, or as he was known on Saturday, Han Burgundy or Ron Solo, celebrated his 5th year being Niagara’s premiere comic, collectable, fan-merch, and nerdy geek supplier.
When I was asked to join some friends for lunch at Paradiso today, I could not say no.
My wife accidentally ended up there when getting lost going to a funeral with her father. Since then they go back from time to time because they love the food and atmosphere. I have always been secretly jealous that I have never been invited. So when the opportunity arose, I jumped all over it!
This past Friday I went to the It’s All Welland Good event, in where else but, Welland.
It was an event to celebrate Welland’s tremendous potential and review past successes.
Yes, sadly, lol, this is what i sing in my head every time I visit this place.

Had the opportunity to take some photos/video at a friend’s son’s wedding.
Was a gorgeous day, for the most part. Rain only came after the ceremony. Right about when it was time to take photographs. I still managed to get some great video footage and snapped some great photos.
I brought my trusty GoPro to the Night Cruise at the Falls the other night. GoPro is typically not the best with low light situations but i think for what its worth this came out ok. I would have loved to have gotten closer, I wonder if there is a super up close tour you can get on…hmmmmm. Now one thing i’ll also add to this story, the video was sped up about 300x. The boats are pretty slow and it made for a very long video so I had to tweak it a bit.
Make sure you watch it in 1080p HD though!
Special thanks to Niagara Cruises for hooking me up with a fantastic evening Falls Illumination Tour.
The view was awesome! So cool being so close. My camera gear didn’t like getting wet though so ignore any water spots on the photos lol.
I got my wife a stereo for her car. Gave my buddy Larry a call at Base Electronics and he had me in a few days later. The car needed a special bracket otherwise I’m sure it wouldn’t have taken as long to get in.
In honor of Octoberfest I thought I would start a bit early and grill up some sausages from my amazing, local butcher. They make the best sausage and while in there today saw they had some Octoberfest links. Pairing this with a sweet French loaf from Spinoza’s Bakery in Welland this made for a great meal.
This is the first time in a long time that my wife actually enjoyed something I’ve deep fried. She tried to mock them, and it went something like, “you can keep these delicious juicy balls of goodness to yourself! or maybe I’ll just stand here and eat more!” Score. This is the exact reaction I want to have from her when I make Stuffing Waffles with gravy.
On to today’s treat.
