Bizarre accident at the Dollar Store in Delta BC

Our beloved Dollar Store, Dollarama at Scott Road and Nordel Way was rudely interrupted this afternoon when a "new" SUV driver decided to accelerate in a forward direction instead of a gentle reverse motion.



Fortunately I don't think that anyone was injured, although it could have been much worse.

Trying to think of some funny captions, like "It really is $1 Dollar Plus" or "The 30 minute parking limit doesn't apply if you park in-store".

Any ideas? Please leave a comment!

Vancouver BC Transit History - Streetcars, Trolley Buses, Electric Railway

Here's some fascinating video clips showing streetcars in operation in Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster from 1907 to the 1950's:







Not exactly RAPID transit, but I think we could use them back again in many areas. Be sure to check out the restored streetcar operating in Vancouver starting in May 2012, from Olympic Village to Granville Island:


Also check out the amazing book by Chuck Davis, The History of Metropolitan Vancouver:

Black Bear Captured on Garbage Truck in Downtown Vancouver, BC Canada

On December 12, a black bear was found on a garbage truck in downtown Vancouver, BC, Canada. The bear was tranquilized and helped off the garbage truck by a conservation officer and several Vancouver police officers. Apparently the young bear hitched a ride in North Vancouver before the truck proceeded to downtown Vancouver for another pickup.

Only in Canada! (Courtesy of CBC News Video)

One of the funniest new comedians around, Andrew J. Rivers from Seattle

I literally laughed my head off, but I have since re-attached it, although it seems to be facing a funny angle.

I hope he gets his own TV show someday! I really enjoyed the clip with Andrew and his Dad (Bob Rivers) on the radio show ( http://andrewjrivers.com/videos/ ) . It’s great to see families that have no shame about what they joke about!

Viewer discretion advised.

Vote YES to extinguish the HST

The Liberals' HST hurts families who already pay more for medical services premiums, ferry fares, hydro rates, tuition fees and other expenses that have been ramped up by the Liberals.

The HST impact on a family budget is much more than $350
According to a Statistics Canada study commissioned by the Times Colonist, the average married couple with a child pays at least $735 more per year with the Liberals’ HST.

A typical family with two parents each making $50,000 will pay over $1,000 more, according to the government's panel report on the HST.

The impact of the HST on families gets bigger as children get older: school supplies, adult-sized clothing for teenagers, summer camps and other expenses are all taxed an extra seven percent under the HST.
These figures don't even include the impact of the HST on big-ticket items. Buying a new home or paying for a new roof or other major home renovations are even more expensive for the average family because the HST taxes those items at seven per cent, not zero per cent as they were before.
For example, a $30,000 renovation incurs $2,100 in additional tax under the HST, compared to zero provincial sales tax previously.

7% HST vs. 0% PST
The HST adds a seven per cent tax on many items that previously had no provincial sales tax.
These are just some of the things that cost families 7% more under the HST:
  • Home renovations, such as a new roof;
  • Energy-saving appliances for the home;
  • Appliance repair and maintenance, housecleaning, landscaping and snow removal;
  • Basic phone and TV service;
  • Smoke detectors and safety equipment;
  • Dietary supplements, vitamins and fitness trainers;
  • Health services not covered by medicare such as massage therapy and acupuncture;
  • Dry cleaning, tailoring, beauticians and haircuts;
  • Coach bus, taxi, rail and domestic air service;
  • Restaurant meals, prepared foods at the grocer;
  • Theatre tickets, movies, sports and musical events;
  • Art, dance and sports lessons;
  • Postage, magazines and newspapers;
  • Gym memberships, sports lessons;
  • Summer camps, amusement parks and tourist attractions;
  • Bicycles, bike repair;
  • Field and facility rental (forcing associations to raise player fees);
  • Pre-natal classes;
  • Most wedding expenses (catering, planning and other services);
  • Countless school supplies;
  • New homes over $525,000;
  • Real estate fees;
  • Funerals.

Vancouver 2010 "I Believe" Instrumental Olympic Fanfare


Awesome instrumental version of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games Olympic Fanfare. Here's the Nikki Yanofsky version with vocals:

Grouse Mountain Wind Turbine with cast of the NBC Today Show



Grouse Mountain's The Eye of the Wind is a large wind turbine – so large that you are able to ascend the 20-storey high tower via an elevator contained within its supporting shaft. You exit into a 36-person viewPod atop the tower, suspended directly below the hub of the massive 125-foot (38-metre) long blades. The viewPod is encased in glass, including a segment of the floor. The closest corresponding experience would be flying in the clear Plexiglas nose bubble of a jet helicopter – except this bubble is approximately 30 times larger.

The views from The Eye of the Wind are incredible. All of Vancouver and its busy harbor, the Coastal Mountains (including the twin peaks known as The Lions) and a vast, green wilderness spread out before you.

On a clear day you can see southeast to snow-capped Mount Baker and Mount Rainier and, to the north their sister mountain, Mount Garibaldi. All three are part of the still-volcanic Cascade Range. To the west and the southwest lie Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, the San Juan Islands and the Olympic Mountains.

The view – 360 degrees of it – is spectacular. From here, sunrises and sunsets are more spectacular, as are the mists that seasonally enshroud the city and the silver-gray storms that blow in off the Pacific.

Vancouver BC is Conde Nast's top destination city for 2009 in the Americas

Vancouver BC is Conde Nast's top destination for 2009 in North and South America

Why vacation in Vancouver?

Nature everywhere: You can always see the ocean and mountain peaks, whether you're on the Stanley Park Seawall or in the middle of downtown. Ride a bike or walk the seawall on False Creek or English Bay for miles, with a fantastic view!

Alpine playgrounds like Grouse, Cypress, and Seymour Mountains are just a hop, skip, and ski jump away — and Whistler Ski Resort is only 90 minutes by car.

Food: Head to Asia West, the new Chinatown in Richmond, with over 500 Asian restaurants.

Most of Vancouver's sights and hotels are in the central downtown area, which is bounded on three sides by water: False Creek to the south, English Bay to the west, and Burrard Inlet to the north. The Burrard, Granville, and Cambie bridges lead south from Downtown to the residential neighborhoods of South Granville and Kitsilano, where you'll find many of the city's best restaurants. The Lions Gate Bridge is the city's main connection to North Vancouver and to local ski hills like Grouse Mountain, Seymour and Whistler Resort.

Vancouver's climate is milder than you'd expect of a city this far north (30 miles above the U.S. border)—and this makes it nearly a year-round city. It's warmed by Pacific Ocean currents and protected by mountains, and temperatures are always comfortable, ranging from the high 70s in summer to the mid-40s in winter.

Microsoft's Free Antivirus Software - Download link for Microsoft Security Essentials

Microsoft Security Essentials is a free download from Microsoft that is simple to install, easy to use, and always kept up to date so you can be assured your PC is protected by the latest technology. It’s easy to tell if your PC is secure — when you’re green, you’re good. It’s that simple.

Microsoft Security Essentials runs quietly and efficiently in the background so that you are free to use your Windows-based PC the way you want—without interruptions or long computer wait times. It also runs quietly in the background scheduling scans when the PC is most likely idle and interrupting the user only when there is an action required to keep their PC secure. It employs practices like active memory swapping and CPU throttling to limit the impact on your PC performance, even on older or less powerful PCs.

This isn’t a security suite product that provides rich PC tuning capabilities or backs up your data. But if what you’re looking for is “install and forget” malware protection and solid quality Microsoft Security Essentials may be just what you’ve been waiting for.
