In the evening of July 23rd, 2016 in Toronto Canada, more than 250 people embarked on the Yankee Lady boat to cruise on Lake Ontario, sailing by the Toronto Islands, Centre Island, while overlooking the skyline of Toronto. The beautiful sun was setting and as it was getting dark, we were under the clear starry sky, the moon was shining on the water and as we enjoyed with our family, friends, and with the Hye Riders Motorcycle club members. After many months of organizing and planning, the Hye Riders boat cruise was a great success where beautiful memories were made and that we will never forget.
We were entertained with the music and performance by the talented Khoren Mouradian who definitely kept people dancing all night. As we were dining, enjoying the beautiful summer night, it was so incredible to see the support from the people who attended, and as well as seeing the Armenian passion and energy that was felt in a happy and festive atmosphere. The Hye Riders are not just about the Motorcycles, they are always there for our Armenians, our identity, life and culture. For that we are so grateful to them.
Thank you to the Hye Riders for this beautiful boat cruise and for all that you all do. We are so blessed to having a lovely group like you all. May God bless you all and with continued success in all that you do. Ride on!

By: Talin Orfali
Armenians on the open road,
The Great Hye Riders on a riding mode,
Hearing the rumble of Harley Davidson’s and more,
the passion of being Armenian is all what its for.
Hye Riders are always there,
because ultimately they really care,
Always there to support our race,
of our Armenian life & culture to embrace,
Sharing the love and adoration of bikes,
That is the type of bond everyone likes,
The Armenian blood rides through,
A beautiful group that sticks like glue,
Oh Beautiful Hye Riders Motorcycle Club,
May You forever be the Armenian Hub,
Ride on Hye Riders you are the best,
We Armenians around the world are truly blessed.
Recently, I discovered something incredible. I saw something that was awesome. A colouring book for adults. I had to do a double take, and I picked up the book to see what it is all about. I saw so many patterns, designs, mandalas, arts, and all sorts of pictures that are so well done, but you definitely need to be detail oriented, choose the right colours and definitely have the eye for it. You need to organize what colours you will choose for the design. It also can be whatever you want it to be, but you really need to concentrate and stay focused. One mistake can ruin the whole picture.
Also, if you see 2 designs on one page back to back, it is wise to use pencil crayons, and then if you see 1 design on one page and skips the back part and into another picture on the next, make sure you put a cardboard or something so that when you use markers, it won’t bleed through the paper.
I am sure by now, some if not everybody knows about these adult colouring books. You can get all kinds of them. Depends on what you like.
I bought a case of markers that has 100 colours in there, and I bought a package of pencil crayons that has 24 colours, but I am going to buy more of those. I am so happy and excited that we adults can colour too. You are never too old to colour. They say these adult colouring books are like therapy and it has been a proven fact that it helps you de-stress, and make you get into colouring and not stopping until you are done the page. It keeps your mind from wandering and thinking about other things.
It is so therapeutic and I recommend this to anybody who has an interest to colouring or just about anybody. It is incredible what you can do with being creative and thinking about the colours and everything to choose. It all depends on what you like to do with it. There are tons of different colouring books you can find. You can even buy them online or print them out on the computer and do it yourself instead of buying them, but the books are also nice to have.
It will definitely bring back the kid in you again, it will be an enjoyable time. I have been colouring for the past couple of weeks and I feel like my whole body and my mind is so calm after. Try it out. You will not be disappointed. Enjoy!
