…..of ‘hmmm’, heat, & fog…

…”Liquor policy review: Vancouver council allows grocery stores to sell booze”….”Hottest day of the year forecast for Britain this weekend”…

…..hmmm…..time will tell, some of the implications of all this!….

It seems on top of the ‘political heat’ that’s facing the nation, Britain will also experience its hottest forecast weather for the year with temperatures to soar into the 30s C in the south and south east.   Pollen levels expected to sing—nothing to sneeze at too! Temperatures expected to remain high throughout next week!

Vancouver early morning sunshine can sometimes be overshadowed by fog that seems to roll in out of nowhere!

The sky is that beautiful old parchment in which the sun and the moon keep their diary. ~Alfred Kreymborg

Though outwardly a gloomy shroud,
The inner half of every cloud
Is bright and shining:
I therefore turn my clouds about
And always wear them inside out
To show the lining.
~Ellen Thorneycroft Fowler

Meditate. Live purely. Be quiet. Do your work with mastery. Like the moon, come out from behind the clouds! Shine. ~Buddha

Cheers to a Fine Friday & weekend that sings—SHINE!!!




…of lot & alot…


…”Demolition for old Vancouver home worth $2.498 million in 2012″…”Teaching kids household chores is a valuable lesson”…”Hospital makes deliberate decision to focus on patient care”…

It’s a puzzle to me that the media keeps reporting the way they do, the value of homes that are being demolished in Vancouver.
It’s a misnomer in my view, because in reality it’s the lot value, the fair market value of the land that is putting the prices of these properties into the stratosphere.
Often times, the houses can be in quite poor condition.
Not always, but often.

And so it goes…

Doesn’t that second headline just sing–the ‘irony’ of it!, could there be anything more ‘pressing‘?!?!…

Of course it’s a great thing to know how to load and unload a dishwasher, shovel some snow, take out the garbage, make your bed, properly water the plants &/or make Mom or Dad some tea!

Now there’s one of those headlines that with all the PR and HR professionals that consult, and advise and formulate policy that could just make one scream——daaaaah!

For how many centuries now have hospitals existed & it’s only NOW that someone in there wisdom rallies the troops to say why don’t we decide to focus on patient care?!


Well that’s it for my few thoughts on the headlines of today!

Cheers to alot of daaah & hmmmmm

Here’s hoping your Thursday will be one that smiles—-thriving!!!
