As far as wineries go, I would have to say I’ve been around. I’ve done Napa Valley over the course of several days, I’ve been to finest grape-growing regions in France, and I know the Okanagan and Fraser Valley vineyards like the back of my hand. I can swirl, swoosh, sniff, and taste tannins as […]

Last year John and I drove past Golden Beaver on our way from Osoyoos to Penticton, however on the way home along Black Sage we totally passed it by. After breakfast we were trying to think of a game plan for today and realized we had yet to visit the winery with the silly name […]

A great part about this weekend’s EPIC Expo was the diversity of exhibitors. From office products, to fair trade coffee, electric scooters, and bamboo underpants, EPIC pretty much lived up to its name. I really appreciated the Parks Canada display and DaveO had a chat with Coral over on the happy frog podcast. I stopped […]

The sounds of summer usually include the splashing of swimmers at the beach, the repetitive midi tune of the ice cream man’s truck, and the sound of your neighbour mowing the lawn.
