Did You Say Cupcakes!

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

When I think of cupcakes, thoughts of beautifully decorated, chocolaty (my fav) treats come to mind. Or If it’s near Valentine’s Day then of course the word “cupcake” relates to my dear sweet wife (sucking up is always a good thing)

Did you know that cupcakes can mean so much more!

 

February 25 is National Cupcake Day. The BC SPCA along with their colleagues in other jurisdictions are encouraging us to Bake and sell cupcakes with the proceeds benefiting the SPCA. (more…)

One Word Can Make a Difference

Friday, November 9th, 2012

The Royal Canadian Legion launches their Poppy Campaign October 26. As it should, it sparks me to reflect on what remembrance day means to me and to our society.

As with many of us, I’ve had family members serve in our Canadian Military and some made the ultimate sacrifice. I even did a short stint in the army reserves myself so yes I have a bias towards supporting our military men and women both serving today and those that have passed beyond.

Let me say that I am a very proud Canadian. That’s one of the reasons why people tell me I “ooze” pride when I talk about working for a locally owned company. I know I’m not the only one who thinks Canada is the best place on earth but why is it that we don’t show that pride more, especially when it comes to our Military? (more…)

BC is Truly Dog Friendly

Thursday, October 18th, 2012

Dr FinniganDogs have become such an important part of our private lives – so much that many of us consider them a part of our families. They live with us. They play with us. They travel with us. And now, they even work with us.

I love going into businesses in Victoria that have an office dog. When I enter Marlin Travel on Oak Bay Avenue, Mickey gives me the best welcome I could imagine. I’ve been to a doctor’s office where I was welcomed by an adorable Westie . However, one of my favourites is Paisley, the dog in my dentist’s office. (more…)
