Hey, now you hot-looking guys, if you have a photo of yourself that you'd like us to post, send it to us ( the email is in our profile) and we'll post it with your first name only (or initials). For those that would like to send in nude photos of themselves, I guess we'll have to start up a separate link (blog) for to post them for others to appreciate. So, once you've got the hang of how your iphone works, send us your images and we'll be glad to post them so you can share with others and help to motivate! - V
This image may be dated but the message is not. Everyone should be free to marry who they like and who they love to spend their lives with the one they care about most in life. Life is over too quickly to have to conform to someone else's idea of what is right.
While on the subject of cupcakes, my favourite friend and blogger often comes to mind when cupcakes are mentioned. Yes, that's Mac. Check out his Yummy blog in the right-hand sidebar.
Meantime, support marriage equality, both straight, gay and what ever! - V
There are hot dudes all around, whether you're on your way to work on the bus, the train or what ever, but they are there if you take the time to notice. For some of us its easy to keep a slim, muscular physique but for others its a case where its a challenge. Despite being a challenge, the goal of staying fit is worthwhile and works in our favour, don't you think? Silvester shows us the way, or certainly inspires us in that direction. - V
I could imagine one of my neighbours looking like this, but truthfully, none come even close to this, not that this hasn't been the case in the past. We can dream though. So, how do your neighbours stack up? - V
Youth, muscles and taking care of yourself can work in your favour later in life. What you do in your younger years can set the stage for what happens later in life, so take care of yourselves and your body will serve you well! - V
For those of you that know me, this might be familiar but for those that don't, this is what I currently look like. This photo was taken in early 2010 during the time of the winter olympics in Vancouver, hence the Canadian flags.. I work as a concierge but outside of work I am into photography and hiking on mountain trails...and believe it or not, I am closing on 60 though you might not know it just looking at me. So, do what you can to take care of yourself, so that your body will serve you well into old age. If not, it could mean years of agony if not an earlier death. Our genetics does play a role but how we take care of ourselves can hasten aging or lessen it. I also posted this photo so that my friend Brad can have the opportunity of seeing it. He seen some of my photos but I don't think this was one of them.
Ever noticed how over populated the world is and despite all this there are people that are lonely even though surrounded by a sea of humanity. We are a society so disconnected from what matters that we don't even know our neighbours, nor care about them for that matter. Its a sad state of affairs that we are in in this modern world.
Jamie is certainly hot (above pic) but take the time to meet and greet your next door neighbour. You never know when knowing them might save your life, or theirs.
I still remember the day back in the 1960s when it was common to know your neighbours, who did what and how many children they had, etc. You could leave your door unlocked and not worry that someone would come in and take something. You helped your neighbour and they helped you. It was a win/win situation for everybody.
So, what has it all come to in the west, not to mention the east? We've become a society too rapped up in our own affairs with little regard to what is happening around us until things get out of hand. We need to turn this around, don't you think? It's just my view but you make up your own mind on the matter. - V
The image shown here is a lot hotter than the weather outside. I woke up this morning to the sound of one of the maintenance people shoveling snow on the walkway in front of the building outside. It was just a dusting of snow and not anything like I was used to back east in southwestern Ontario where I lived for decades with plenty of winter experiences.
Well, if you're living in a cold, northern climate deep in the throws of winter, I'll let Justin warm you up, or the sight of him anyway! Enjoy your weekend, whatever is thrown at you! - V
Well, Teamm8 has done it again showing off not only great designed underwear but some really hot guys to go with it. Tell me one of your next door neighbours looks like one of these dudes and I'd love to hear from you.
In other news, I'm sipping on some grog again, you know the stuff with Barbados rum in it, and the only time of the year when I'll drink it. I checked out a distiller that is found in Pemberton,BC, north of Vancouver and beyond Whistler. They produce small batches of organic gin and vodka which they have for sale along with other items. I'll post more on the Pemberton Distilleries soon.
Meantime, have a good night, guys, and pleasant dreams! The sandman has been busy here again..my eyelids are getting heavy. More later. - V
Here is someone to dream about overnight as the sandman spreads his dream sand. I'm about to head for the sack myself. Its getting late and I'll be up by 5 am. I'm sipping on some hot grog (freshly squeezed lemon juice, some brown sugar, or honey, Mount Gay rum, which is my favourite, and some freshly boiled hot water to top it off) and once that's done, I'm off to bed. Have a good night, guys! - V
Here's another rear view of a hot guy..All I can say is flaunt it while you have the good looks and the physique that goes with it. Youth and beauty don't last forever. Some of us age like a fine bottle of wine while other wrinkle up like a prune or somewhere between the two. - V
Well, here is an Andrew Christian video called "Almost Naked" - the censored version featuring model JakeAndrews. Go to the AndrewChristian blog to find the link to the uncensored version, if you're 18 or over that is. Meantime, enjoy this one! - V
A view of a hot guy in the shower, what could be better short of being in there yourself? The human body is wonderful to behold especially one in great shape but getting that physique in such shape requires some effort on our part.. - V
My feeling has always been that you should enjoy the work that you do. If not, its time to move on to something else that will bring you pleasure and you'll get something from. These guys are obviously enjoying their work. Check out the video to see! - V
Marlon Texeira has come a long way over the years in modelling. Check out to see the video to see him first-hand. It certainly helps to have a handsome face and a physique to go with it. Do you think he's got it to go into acting? Ummmmm... - V
There are times when we have to take some risks in life, calculated risks, but risks just the same. Just sitting where we are and waiting for things to happen may not be enough, if you know what I mean. So if you're interested in someone that you'd like to spend your life with, ask...don't wait for that person (him/her) to ask you. If that person makes you very happy, then go for it. There are times when we must go after what is in our desires, whether its a person or something else of importance. The ball is in your court! - V
Douches froides, or Cold Showers in English: I have this movie on DVD and have seen it a number of times as I have quite a number of other films in my collection. I personally love the French movies because they are so much deeper than those from North America. If you don't mind the subtitles, check it out. Of course, if you can understand the French language, then you don''t need to bother with the subtitles, do you? To keep it short, the story starts with a couple of guys with interests in common. When a third party becomes involved, the story starts to take a turn, and not for the better I would think, but you decide. I don't like to give stories away, so I won' t say any more. You'll just have to see it to find out. - V
Have you ever wondered about things, whether everything is where its supposed to be? Are all things working as they should and when you want them to? Is the sun rising in the east and setting in the west? Some things to ponder as the hours of the day pass on and the clock keeps ticking away! - V
So what is a boyfriend? Who would you describe as such? Who would you wrap your arms around without question savoring every moment of the experience? Do you have such a person to share your world and life with? Are you happy with your lot in life or can there be improvements? Some things to think about! - V
There was never a car wash like this when I had a car, any car! Maybe I should get another just to take advantage of the experience. We can thank Andrew Christian for the idea. What do you guys think? - V
Over the weekend I've been mulling over the possibility of saving up funds to purchase some land back east and building a country cottage on it. I am looking at Nova Scotia as the place of prime interest. Land has become insanely expensive here in the west since I came out here and since I had to spend all of the money I came out here with to live while I was recovering from my illness, the plans have to necessarily change. For the moment, I make more money out here than I would back east, so I'll remain here for the time being salting the funds away and then make a purchase when the time is right.
My retirement is but seven years away, so once this all becomes reality, I plan to spend my time back east continuing my photography, painting (oils and watercolours), writing and exploring nature which I have always loved. There's a lot to see out east, so living there and exploring, even while retired, is one way to see the country. I've seen what Cape Breton looks like from programs on television. That's a definite destination once I'm out there.
I plan to make a few drawings and sketches, so I will post some of my ideas to share with others. The cottage will be very simple and practical with a galley kitchen, living room, dining area, a small bathroom and at least one bedroom. The living room is planned to have a cozy fireplace and comfortable seating. Meantime, while your thoughts are on that and the possibilities, have a good night, guys! - V
Now I've found the correct video clip. A co-worker was so enthused by the sausages grilling that she had to get some. It made her hungry. Well, I remember a cleaner years ago talking about sledding down the mountain side in Austria during the close of WWII and after that seeing the guy sledding down the mountain allowed me to understand what he was talking about. This was back in the 1980s, so years ago. Enjoy the musical journey! - V
I've been a great fan of Swiss folk music since the early 1970s. This isn't the video clip I was looking for but its the right group playing. The music is as wonderful as the landscape. If you have the chance, take a trip, even a side excursion to Switzerland. It would be well worth it in any season! - V
This evening on the way home from work the train was reasonably full considering the time. A young Asian guy sat down next to me and was seated checking out his smartphone for most of the trip toward NewWestminster. At one point toward the end he got up and then sat down across from me. Then another young Asian guy sat down next to him. He must have gotten on the train. I was dozing off now and then but when I looked up again, the two of them were holding hands. Lovers no doubt and certainly both very good looking!
That's a photo of Benjamin Godfre above. So, what interesting things have you seen in your daily life? I'm sure there's something!
Model Ben Godfre is presented in this Timoteo underwear video clip. What better way than a little motivation before bedtime. And if you'd like to work on your body so it looks like his or similar, there are many sources that can help you make this a reality. Scott Herman's website (see link below in right-hand sidebar) is just one of many options. What do you think, are you game? So, Scott, are you ready for these guys all fired up to get fit? - V
Starting off the new year reminds me of the colour "white" in that I feel I have to clean the place up as we are getting into the year, in this case 2012. I started by removing any Christmas ornaments, though the little tree is there on top of the organ minus the ornaments and tinsel plus there is a decoration that is an imitation wreath with boughs slightly whitened.
I've completed two working days but will get paid for six (working five days in total) by the time I end the week.
I came home, had a light supper (nothing special), watched a little TV (the Property Brothers on Cable 19), had my meds, and then planted myself in front of the computer to read emails and check out some blogs (I love read them, and reading in general). Now I'm sipping on some German white wine before bed (Deinhard's Piesporter Riesling 2010, in case you were wondering). That should put me in the mood for bedtime. And as my idea goes, what's good to drink is also worth using in the kitchen (cooking), don't you think?
Have a good night, guys! I hope you've had an awesome start to the new year! I Wish you all the best!!! - V
Happy New Year everyone! Have a happy, healthy and prosperous 2012! With good health we can do all the other things that we want to do but without that important element life is a challenge. It can be anyways but even more so without your health in order.
Enjoy the start to the year. I usually start by cleaning up. Laundry is the first on the list, so I'll be getting to that shortly. What do you do to start of a new year? Take care, guys! - V
