…of ‘wildfire persistence’, ‘alarming frequency’ & ‘drive-ins’….

….”No end in sight for BC wildfires”…”Americans crossing into Canada carrying guns with ‘alarming frequency'”…”Even in their twilight, drive-ins offer more than just a movie”…

Concerning for so many, the BC wildfires continue throughout British Columbia one month after the province declared a state of emergency.  Smoke persists in permeating the skies in the the metro Vancouver area.

Apparently, “the duration of the disaster is weather-dependent and without rain, crews are doing their best to contain and direct the fire away from communities.”

Let there be respite!

Seemingly, these summer months, it’s proving a trying challenge for border guards to let otherwise law-abiding people know they can’t bring firearms into our country while on vacation.

Interestingly enough, “many don’t realize they can legally declare firearms and leave them behind as they enter the country. Many of the tourists are 60 and older, and from the South.”

Education the best weapon!

Stay safe folks!

When’s the last time you went to a drive-in movie?

Perhaps for many, it’s a never experienced phenomenon!

Apparently, “the drive-in movie industry is still alive and well in many parts of Canada.”

One enthusiastic operator expounds  “We have modern playgrounds, immaculate facilities, and great concession offerings. We welcome dogs, we play the national anthem before the movies begin. It’s an entire experience people are after.” 

Bravo to “Everything old can be new again, especially if a community values it.”

Cheers to a terrific Tuesday that sings–treasure your community & all that it offers!

Have a fine summer day!
