Fond memories of Hy’s Mansion in West End, Vancouver.  I used to love going for dinner here with my mom and her sister when they visited me when I first moved to Vancouver from Montreal. It was a special time and place. The grounds are beautiful.20160405_162451


Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?

“When you think things are bad,
when you feel sour and blue,
when you start to get mad…
you should do what I do!
Just tell yourself, Duckie,
you’re really quite lucky!
Some people are much more…
oh, ever so much more…
oh, muchly much-much more
unlucky than you!”  – Dr. Seuss



Words…why Fridays are important

Today is Sunday (which means tomorrow is Monday, a work day for most) but here is why we need Fridays:


ISIS. Ebola. Russia in Ukraine. The world looks like it needs a Friday. But if the UN is looking for a playlist, we’d recommend starting with “a little less conversation, a little more action.” –  theSKIMM

On a lighter note:

Fridays are people’s second favourite “F” word.

Friday afternoons are filled with positive anticipation for the weekend.

You can sleep away your hangover the very next day.

For movies like “Friday the 13th“.  It would be weird sounding to change the day of the week – something like Monday the 13th doesn’t quite cut it.

Black Friday which is the equivalent of boxing day here in Canada.  This best sums it up:

Some people see Black Friday as a much-needed break for their wallet. I see it as retail outlets showing the customers the full weight of their contempt. The frenzy to buy cheap crap from China, the human downgrade of people fighting with each other over items they can probably live without, to me, is an insult. – Henry Rollins

And as for me, I don’t like to wake up at 4:00 a.m. to stand in line or sleep on a cold sidewalk waiting for a store to open.  Nothing is ever that CHEAP!

Well that’s all I could come up with because for me, everyday is a Friday!
