We watch A-Channel during the week sometimes, while cooking dinner and playing along with Jeopardy. We do so mostly because their weather guy, Bruce Williams, comes on with “Watch and Win”. A call-in contest where you can win anything from gift certificates to Canucks tickets. This past Saturday A-Channel opened its doors from 11am to […]

Every year we come to Victoria and every time we stay at the Delta Ocean Pointe Resort. Originally we would get treatments at the spa, but it then just turned into our main hub for the weekend. Location wise, you can walk across the Johnson Street bridge or take a water taxi and you’re in […]

It’s something everyone West of Thunder Bay has come to accept, Toronto is the centre of the Canadian universe. We scoff at the CBC and their disregard for Western programming and hockey coverage, federal politicians have long-before snubbed those on this side of the Rockies and let’s face it, they get all the good shopping, […]

Last night before heading out for a little bit of birthday dinner, my sister and I met up with Bill Lin from The Amazing Hunt to sign some forms and get more info for our team. I’ve talked about the race in the past on some of my other sites, since I’ve been an Amazing […]
