So many folks tell us how thrilled they are that Accent Inns is a dog friendly hotel, but on occasion I get asked by some, “why would you welcome dogs in your hotels?” I can understand if someone isn’t a pet owner they might not understand. It’s simple really, our pets (dogs, cats, etc…) are living breathy mammals just like you and I and being so, it’s instinctual (in my opinion) for us to form tight bonds, love our pets. (more…)

The Okanagan Symphony Orchestra is in motion, the Administration that is. On February 1 we will move in to our new offices at Knowles House, 865 Bernard Ave., Kelowna.
We love the house and the location, right next to a park, beautifully manicured by the City of Kelowna, where we can envision summer concerts in our more freewheeling moments.
Everything’s on the ground floor and is totally accessible, which gives us the opportunity to bring our ticketing in house, with our own space where our patrons can pick up tickets, ask questions and get to know us a bit better. (more…)
Here’s a copy of the ALS Cycle of Hope Launch – June Press Release - “Inspiring hope for families living with ALS”
VICTORIA – A new crop of riders are set to pedal 700 kilometers for seven days starting in Kamloops August 8th and finishing in Keremeos August 14th for the 2nd Annual ALS Cycle of Hope. This year’s Awareness Journey will be more demanding physically but will also feature riders who have been directly affected by ALS through family and friends.
“I’m so excited to build on what we accomplished last year by growing the size of the team and the scope of this year’s event”, said Cindy Lister the inspiration behind the Cycle of Hope. “Last year was about riding for my Dad and starting this journey. This year it’s about spreading the awareness further with each of these riders sharing their stories and those of every community we ride through.”
In addition to the Awareness Journey, this year the public can join one of two community rides in Kelowna on August 11th; a 30 or a 70-kilometer loop or join a virtual ride on-line (www.cycleofhope.ca) where riders can track their mileage and raise support for ALS in their own community. (more…)
There is a line in a song by the British rock band Chumbawamba that says “Pass it along by word of mouse” This is not just a great lyric but a statement that pretty much defines our world today.
Within moments of taking a photo, receiving a video, a joke or a special offer, we pass it along to all those folks on our contact list without a moment’s though. But should we perhaps give it a moment’s thought?
How many of us pass it along without removing the email addresses of those dozens of people who have passed it along to us? How many of us pass it along to people we barely know without a moment’s thought as to their political or religious views, their workplace email policies or even the validity of the content? (more…)
Activities ranging from kayaking, hiking and rock hounding to rollerblading, GeoCaching and beach walking are all possible with your four-legged family members. Kamloops has 15 off-leash dog parks, 14 on-leash parks and 3 off-leash dog beaches. If this isn’t doggie heaven, it’s certainly on the way!
The City of Kamloops is so dog-friendly Tourism Kamloops actually has a doggie mascot – a Golden retriever named “Kamloops Kooper”. Kooper is especially fond of hiking in Kenna Cartwright Park and Peterson Creek, and wandering among the downtown sidewalk cafes where there are always doggie water bowls to help keep him cool on those hot and sunny Okanagan summer days.

If you’ve ever fancied yourself to be a bit like Indiana Jones searching for ancient artifacts or Jacques Cousteau combing the ocean floor for pirate treasure, you may be interested in a slightly more modern version of these activities – the garage sale.
That’s right. Today’s garage and yard sales are the way that modern urbanites get an opportunity to study both the current and past lifestyles through the discarded treasures of their fellow man (and more often their fellow woman).
When visiting another city, there are plenty of opportunities to see the place as the city officials wish you to – tourist attractions, scenic walks, restaurants and hotels – but attending a garage sale gives you the opportunity to view those city dwellers in their natural habitat. You may even get a glimpse of their private gardens, their pets and their friends. (more…)
For some people BC Day (Aug 6, 2012) is just another excuse for a long summer weekend. But for many, it means much more than that.
People who grew up in BC may sometimes take this province for granted but for those of us who are here by choice, it is really a very special place. We came here for many reasons but no matter the reason, most of us are totally enthralled by the weather, the natural beauty, the diversity of the population and the healthy lifestyle. Whether we moved from the East Coast, the Middle East or the Far East – British Columbia is special in so many ways.
Anybody who has ever visited BC goes away with tales of the beauty of the mountains, the ocean and the parks. But for those of us who live here, there is a great deal more to celebrate. We may get used to living in such amazing beauty. We may even complain about the weather. But given the choice most of us would not live anywhere else. (more…)
