A Little Time on the Foodie Beat

A couple of Foodie items today. Today I attended a late afternoon business meeting downtown Vancouver. Of course all of us who attended were missing our dinners or were expecting to be home late for dinner so the sandwiches provided for us were very appreciated. Seeing as I am a vegetarian (a vegetarian who eats fish) I […]

Veggie Dogs Vs the Mystery Meat Wiener

I was at a barbecue earlier today. The objects being barbecued were hotdogs. The good folks organizing the communal feast were kind enough to recognize and accomodate me being a vegetarian. They brought along veggie dogs for me. The funny part of this story is that when serving me a veggie dog, the person at the […]

New McDonald’s TV Spots

Okay, so does anybody else see the weird humour in the new McDonald’s commercials? The new TV commercials have a bunch of young hipsters eating McDonalds food while sitting around a camp. Suddenly a massive bear arrives at the the camp and just ambles through, looks around and then walks away. So what is the bear thinking? […]

In the days of long ago, during more innocent times, when we were childless, my Sweetheart and I would search out new and exotic cuisines at the most fashionable restaurants in our city. In fact we would plan our vacations around specific restaurants that we wanted to dine at. Sometimes in the middle of the night […]

Rabbit; Free to Good Home

While I was out walking Jim Dog the other day I saw one of my neighbours had put a chest of drawers out on the curb with a sign on it saying “Free to good home.” That sign made me think back to a story my good buddy told me about his father’s first few years […]

Horizons Restaurant Burns

For me to leave the house this morning was similar to leaving a five alarm blaze. I walked away from the house just hoping that the crew I left in charge would be okay. Speaking of five alarm blazes, I see that Horizons restaurant burned and has been essentially gutted. Sorry to hear this news but on the other hand, I […]

The Joy of Coffee

Do you ever stop and think about how our modern day conveniences came about? Things that we depend on everyday, things like, for example, coffee. Who was it that stopped and picked the coffee berries and then had the foresight to dry them and save the hard little nut like thing that was inside? Imagine […]
