In this episode Allison talks to CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ales), The Rio Theater in East Vancouver, and the community about the some of BC’s strange alcohol laws, and their affect on local business and the community.
Well… It looks like the guitars have been breeding again. It seems like every time i turn around there is a new one turning up. I’m just hoping they don’t learn how to open doors.
It’s kind of overwhelming how creative and talented my friends are, take Carly for example… she makes the best damn blueberry chocolate-chip muffins. I’ll be damned if you can find somebody who can make a better batch of blueberry chocolate chip muffins… or kick ass banana bread… or crispy berry crumble… or white chocolate chunk oatmeal cookies… shit now I’m hungry.
It’s been a couple of years since I was last in India, but my experience traveling to some of the Child Haven homes was something that still brings a smile to my face. Every year I try to put some of my photos together in a charity project to help raise money for them, and this year we decided to do a large run of notecards. The printing costs have been donated 100%, so every dollar you spend on these cards goes directly to Child Haven International, to help them support the hundreds of destitute children that they care for in India, Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan. These cards aren’t holiday specific, and you can use them for a variety of occasions throughout the year, plus they support a great cause.
The notecards are by donation and come hand packaged in packs of 10 (each with a different photo), we are asking for a minimum $20 donation per pack (100% of your donation goes directly to Child Haven).
You can pick them up from me in person in Kitsilano, or at the next charity dinner near you. Child Haven is a small organization running on minimal overhead, and they don’t have the resources to do individual mail outs at this time. Sign up for the Child Haven newsletter to see when they will be serving up great butter chicken, spicy curry and fresh naan near you 🙂
Last year you robbed me of my laptop, my cellphone, my basic liver function and most of my dignity… but I got them all back and now I’m back for more.
