I really cannot believe that I have not written a post in so long. There is a partial post that I have been sitting on for months, waiting for me to finish it but it has not quite happened yet. Why was I not writing? I asked myself that on a fairly regular basis and I finally … More Time Flies, Things Change and Life Rolls Along
Five signs that I’m getting older…and my “glass-is-half-full” take on it… 1. Sign that I’m getting older: It was a one time incident but Armando will not let me live it down…I called it, “The Twitter”. The “glass-is-half-full” take on it: I actually do know what Twitter is and in fact, use it. So I … More 5 Signs that I’m Getting Older

So, it all started when I found out that he had an appointment with an Image Consultant who was a guest … More Armando’s Trip to the Barber

Receipts from his business trips live in our home wherever they may fall, be it on the kitchen table, the living … More Winning the Game of…Marriage?

As we started walking towards Davie Street the crowd around us steadily increased with each intersection crossed. And as we turned right on Davie, we flowed into the stream of people … More Crazy Crowds at the Celebration of Lights 2012
So everything happens in three’s. This week I have been questioning where we live. We chose an urban area in Port Moody, thinking we can live the city life outside of Vancouver. But, our urban area is close to the beautiful British Columbia wilderness so when we saw three bears a block from our home … More Port Moody’s Investigative Couch Reporter
If you’ve followed my bear dilemma these last few days, you know that I’ve been a little stressed. I live in Port Moody, BC. It’s a city of 34,000 people and is part of the Greater Vancouver Area. It is an absolutely beautiful, small city but I’m starting to get too scared to enjoy it … More Bears and Bears and Cougars, Oh My!
