Ever Been To A Scale Model Air Show?

Ana and I went to the Waterloo Air Show again earlier this summer and had a blast. It was a second time going and seeing a powerful military jet fighter (not to mention the Snowbirds) seemingly defying the laws of physics never gets old. Keeping with the theme, today I went to my first model airshow .

Motorcyclist Rear-Ends Car And Lands on Roof

The video blew that it YouTube a few days ago blew my mind. It seems like something out of a Jackass movie.

A man speeding down a highway on his motorcycle uncontrollably, rear-ends a car, seemingly obliterating the machine but he makes it out alive.

St. Jacob’s Market Discoveries

For the first time, we made the trek out to St. Jacob’s market, where local farmers sell food, livestock and furniture.

Across the street was a big Antiques market which had a pile of old school DC and Marvel books. Bought three!
