….of ‘moon’, ‘games’, & golf carts….

…”Lion’s Bay nude beach exposed in popularity, problem parking”…”No. 10 refuses to confirm Queen’s speech will go ahead next Monday”…”BC village first to allow golf carts on local roads”…

SOMETHING ABOUT….“Brunswick nude beach in Lions Bay was a hidden gem loved by local naturalists, but word got out. As it becomes ever more — well, exposed — there’s growing concern about the increased traffic.”

Cheers to sun & stars & moon!…….

SOMETHING ABOUT.“Decision not to confirm date is raising speculation that UK PM May is not yet certain of DUP or other party support to get legislation passed.”

Cheers to the games have just begun! ……”Tomorrow, May will travel to Paris for bilateral talks with the French president, Emmanuel Macron, before attending the England v France football match.”

SOMETHING ABOUT“Cars are no longer par for the course in the Shuswap BC village of Chase. In order to operate a golf cart on roads, you must have a valid driver’s licence, insurance and a municipal permit to get behind the wheel. Golf carts can only be driven during the daytime and must stick to roads with a maximum speed limit of 30 kilometres an hour. They are not permitted on sidewalks.”

With half of Chase’s population over age 55,  apparently, many see these as the rides of the future.

Cheers to this could give a whole new kinda meaning to “just puttering about” !!

Whatever be the ‘truth & the life‘ for your meanderings on a marvelous Monday in June, may it sing—the fair way!

 

 

…of towers, brief & grammar…

Vancouver’s Harbour Centre Tower, its tallest structure at the time (563 feet),  opened this day in 1977. 

Astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man to land on the moon, planted his shoe in cement at the official opening.  As well as offices, the tower, after a time as department stores, is now the downtown campus of Simon Fraser University.  One small step for man, one giant leap for downtown learning……UBC & BCIT  both followed with downtown campuses some years later….

The Canadian Bar Association National convention wraps up today.  Should be a good day for the city’s bars & pub patios….all within city & legal limits!……of course…Cheers for expedience, professional diversity, & recognized award winners for extraordinary work across the country!

Apparently texting is “eroding kids’ grammar skills one LOL at a time!”  Yes, that’s right, a recent study has revealed that the more kids send and receive texts the worse their grammar skills become. The technical lingo is that “text saturation affects grammar.” …….that’s the WYSIWYG of it!….(what you see is what you get)

Cheers to a day that towers over some of the others,  where stresses are brief and if you are blessed to have a “Gramma”  around she gets a hug!
