Welcome Victoria’s New “Pride-walks”

Posted on by Mel Z

If the open-minded city that rocks a rainbow of heritage buildings, flowers on every corner and big blue ocean wasn’t colourful enough for you — the City of Victoria just got even more brighter — and diverse.

City of Victoria launched three rainbow crosswalks downtown this week, just in time for Victoria Pride Week, kicking off Saturday, June 27th. The City of Victoria will also raise the Pride flag on Monday, June 29th at City Hall.

My new favourite bit on TV is something The Late Late show with James Corden does. They call it Carpool Karaoke and I find it a lot of fun to watch. Here’s the videos they’ve done so far with Justin Bieber, Jennifer Hudson and more. Enjoy!

Victoria Has Many Parks…But Just One Parklet

Posted on by Mel Z

Sit back and enjoy

Sit back and enjoy the Fort Street Parklet

First of all — What is a PARKLET?

Noun parklet (plural parklets)

A parking space sized area used for recreational or beautification purposes.

Ok, now this sounds right up Victoria’s “ally” — except it’s on the street. Where we love to people watch, drink coffee, take photos and have deep conversations about parenting, environmental sustainability, transportation issues, housing affordability, gardening, the latest concert or event happening this weekend. If a city needs anything, it’s more room for people to … be with people.

Chip off the Block. Mel and Mr. Z

I always find Father’s Day a bit of a challenge — for my husband and my own Dad.

These are the kind of guys that are pretty self-sufficient. They want something, they go out and get it. Which leaves us crawling Pinterest for weird gadgets or practical tools at the Canadian Tire. Well, not this year Pops! This year, we’re launching the Dad’s Day Olympics! The challenge is on us!

Wait — what, how does this work? OK, picture this: Dad sleeps in to his liking on Sunday morning, to awaken and find himself with a Dad’s Day Olympics Program on his bedside. Which, by the way — is where his first Dad Olympics “event” is set to go…
