I’m not sure if it’s the return of clouds in the sky or the light sprinkling of rain on our sun-drenched patios but things seem to have taken a grumpy turn in the city lately. As such, here’s a morning link fest filled with happy thoughts.

  • Along with DaveO, the lovely and talented Monica Hamburg had a birthday this weekend.
  • A world traveling garden gnome from Surrey returns home after a second trip out of country. [Surrey Leader]
  • Last week Techvibes re-launched their site with a more streamlined look for everything from job listings, company directories and a blog.
  • I finally got around to putting a custom logo on all of my Viddler videos.
  • Langley is having an International Festival this Saturday, August 23rd from 10:30am until 7:00pm (link via: Find Family Fun)
  • Scenic Gibsons Landing hosts the Fibre Arts Festival August 20th until the 24th. Just hop a quick bus from downtown to Horseshoe Bay, you’re only a ferry ride away.
  • Dr Beth Snow has bandaids that look like strips of bacon (not bacn). Yes, this is a happy thought because she is getting better and really, you can’t beat bacon.
  • Tyler Ingram has a post about heading up to Cat Lake in Squamish, excellent idea for a day trip.
  • My weekly post is now published on E!Online and it features the latest in the Metro Vancouver outdoor movie series – the Gastown Drive-In.
  • And finally, some cartoons from Noise to Signal for a nice morning pick-me-up.
