Hi there, Victoria Accent Inns here. I’m totally lucky having 4 other “sister” hotels around BC (coincidentally also all named Accent Inns…) and it looks like in just a few days (May 1st is the due date) I’ll have to get used to having a new cousin around, a new Victoria Hotel. Me and my siblings are really proud of our great rooms, good service and totally fun attitude but this new family member…. well she’s different. (more…)

Your editor, John Espley here again. Today is Earth Day. So if you’re not an environmentalist should that mean anything to you?
Wikipedia defines Earth days as follows: Earth Day is an annual event, celebrated on April 22, on which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and celebrated in more than 192 countries each year. (more…)
What is the storyline for the game and how did you come up with the idea for it?

The Monolith itself was built during a much earlier epoch (much of its purpose and history lost through the ages). (more…)

Here’s a really neat fundraiser for the pacific salmon foundation
Ever since Haig Brown published his “Fisherman’s Winter” in 1954, we all have heard of the phenomenal brown trout and rainbow trout of Argentina and may have dreamed about pursuing them in the challenging wind swept plains of Patagonia.

Call of Duty: Ghosts gets a much needed update with the release of Onslaught, the first of four planned DLC packs for the game. The new content requires the full version of Ghosts to play and offers up a plethora of content including four new maps, a dual mode weapon, and a new episode of the alien invasion game, Extinction. For me Ghosts was filled with frustration on the multi play side as I found many maps were too large and encouraged camping, which as anyone who has been spawn killed numerous times in a row will tell you, leads quickly to frustration.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE APRIL 1, 2014
VICTORIA, BC – Accent Inns is once again at the forefront of innovation in the highly-competitive world of hospitality, with the addition of one more offering to their already-specialized services: equi-accommodation, aka the provision of rooms for people and horses, together. For many years, the BC-based, family-owned hotel group catered to guests travelling with their pets, their bicycles and motorcycles. Now, horses – whether for show, racing, riding or just companionship – will be shown the same outstanding service that travellers have come to count on at Accent Inns since 1986. (more…)
