Potter’s House of Horrors

I love Halloween, and in the spirit of the season, the family and I decided to check out The Potter’s House of Horrors in Surrey last night. This is becoming almost a yearly tradition for Jake and I. This year, my sister Daisy and her boyfriend joined us. I have a love-hate relationship with haunted…

Fighting Chance Productions’ Sweeney Todd

Every time I go to see a Fighting Chance Production I am impressed. To have such a calibre of players here in Vancouver is such a treat. People who complain that Vancouver doesn’t have Broadway quality theater are simply not looking hard enough. The arts are alive and well in our fair city, and tonight they…

Cake Tease? more like cake please!

Circle farm tours

One gorgeous sunny, summer day, my husband Jake and I decided to go for a little ride. There is so much organic food grown locally in BC,  that we decided to check out some of the great farms and wineries here in the Fraser Valley. Students earning bachelor degrees online in environmental science or biology may be especially interested in seeing all…

The Canucks had their first game of the season at Rogers Arena last night against the LA Kings.  Like every year, fans gathered together to celebrate their home team, they way only Canucks fans can. Being the 40th year of the franchise, there was a ceremony to celebrate the team’s first roster. It was a…
