Today is the annual Christmas pot luck at work. Unfortunately since my husband was unable to slave away making a tuna pasta salad for me to bring in this year, I stopped off at a grocery store downtown before coming in. I decided to duck into the new IGA Marketplace on Robson and Richards. It […]

I admit, I don’t think I’ve ever done any shopping in Yaletown aside from the new Dollar Store I discovered but if you’re out and about downtown and need some of your Christmas gifts done up in pretty little bows, keep this destination in mind.

Actually, this should be called the “why am I sick again” edition, but seeing as how I’m not having surgery and I didn’t beat the Stanley Cup Champions last night, I’ll leave the post title as-is.

Skate for a Cure is an exciting fundraising event that encourages kids of all ages to get involved in raising funds to find a cure for childhood cancer.
