Yesterday I was cruising the Okanangan Spring Brewery website, I ended up at their parent company’s site – for Sleeman. On Sleeman’s site there’s a lil blurb about their breweries and a section on OK Spring. From the Sleeman site I click on the OK Spring link – check out our website here – kinda thing. It takes me to which is NOT the OK Spring Brewery site — which is actually I wrote up a lil note in the “contact us” section and I just heard back..

It appears you are right! Not sure how this happened! We are currently following up to make a correction. We appreciate your kind note! Cheers!

Now if only some free product would be involved – although I just heard back from Sue and they’re sending me something – it just can’t be beer :p … ahh well. just helping out the little guy… well actually the big guy with all the beer.

Chris just sent me this from the Onion hehe!!

“We ask fans to cooperate with Interpol to find the assailant, and call upon British Sea Power, Snow Patrol, and The Postal Service for help…”

We’re really enjoying the Onion Radio News podcasts. Everyone is going podcast crazy. it’s the new buzz word, some people don’t know what it is, how to use it, what it does but they want it. Check out my podcast links on the side for some goodies and jump on that bandwagon.

at some point i wanted to find pics online of homer when he was creating a sexy album for marge, ya know – him posing with the fire hose? yeah… so flipping through the channels last night and that episode is on – it’s the Mensa people take over Springfield episode and Stephen Hawking knocks out Skinner… ya know?… so i google image search and presto! i come across this site with all these lil mini action figures. i think i had been there before to scoop an image of their Big Book of British Smiles. anyway, too cool – they have homer’s album there “for my significant other” and it made me giggle.

songs, stories, so much more

one of my favourite shows is “how it’s made” on discovery channel. now it could be that it takes me back to my early years since it’s kinda like… watching the polka dot door and you zoom in on one of the polka dots and it opens and BAM you get to see how tennis racquets are made. i actually tricked my grade 3 friends into thinking i had been to hawaii before because i described a pineapple plant’s procedures down to a T (after watching a segment on polka dot door)…. suckers…

anyhoo, we watched How it’s Made last night – it’s a good filler between shows. saw how zambonis err i mean ice resurfacers are made. zamboni is like kleenex … where we take the brand name and apply it to all products …or band-aids err i mean first adhesive aid strips.

so yeah… man… the canucks are still on pretty thin ice but they sure needed that win last night vs the oilers. goals by linden, daniel sedin (2) and kesler. still no production from the ‘big boys’ but at least there’s SOME production. auld was excellent and might i say, ive never looked at him in a certain way before but when murph was interviewing him after the game last night… let’s just say he looked good on and off the ice.

oh and we ran into dan murphy at the bar the other night, he looks like an 18 year old kid – was wearing a fleece jacket and his hair was DOWN… john wanted me to get a pic with him… pfftt i dont DO pics but YAY murph! :p

made in '69

So another mishap with a BC Ferry – this one could have potentially been a LOT worse. It’s all over the news (national, international) like the time the ferry ran aground in Horseshoe Bay… or like the time the NDP government spent millions of dollars on a new useless fleet… this happened last night on the north coast of BC. every single person on that ferry was unharmed (physically) although i’m sure they’re shaken up. the ferry SANK while crew and passengers looked on – over 150 people, at night, in the ocean on a massive boat… like i said, this could have been a LOT worse….
