Large cities often set aside green space for their city dwellers. New York does it with Central Park, London with Richmond Park and Vancouver British Columbia has Stanley Park. I visited Vancouver during the 2010 Olympics but as I have previously wrote about, I did not get to do much … Continue reading
I have been noticing an energy saving revolution out there with breweries. Wind power, solar powered, even steam powered. The Steamworks Brewery in Vancouver BC has been a steam powered brewery for the past 20 years. How cool is that?

Or maybe you don’t remember them, or believe me that you should always be on the lookout for the Sasquatch while in Canada. Check out … Continue reading
