HeroWork is a volunteer program that inspires people and companies to come together and complete Radical Community Renovations for worthy non-profits. In other words, they organize modern-day versions of old-fashioned barn raisings.
Last week we were at the United Way Kick-Off, the Industrial Supply Show, and then we hungout at the CFB Esquimalt’s Formation Fun Day! Check out our photos!

I talked to my musical BFF this week.
I have known her for about 22 or so years…She was there when I went through some tough stuff…like being 23, haha. She shared my growing pains and heartache in those days and I’ll never forget that. We had many other special moments, like concerts in the rain — she even played a part in my wedding.
So you can imagine my excitement when she called the other day…And the fact that my musical best friend is the inspiring…Sarah McLachlan.
Sarah will be in Victoria at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre, Saturday October 18th. Tickets are available for the show HERE! Make sure you have a look at this opportunity to join Sarah in her “living room” on stage at the concert.
September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and I was invited out to Royal Roads to MC the ‘Walk Of Hope’. It was an inspirational day and I heard many amazing stories including the incredible Anne Carlsons. Two women who share the same name but have far more in common that they or anyone else could have imagined.
Stream Train’s new album “Bulletproof Picasso” for a limited time.
Check out the parking improvements below that begin today here in Victoria.
I loved these books. The Hunger Games series made some interesting statements about poverty, corruption and politics. If you haven’t read them…well, you’ve got just enough time before part one of the final book-turned-movie hits theatres.
Mockingjay will be in theatres this November 21st, so it’s time for a good look at the big screen interpretation. Once you get reading these books, you can’t stop — so November is about right.
Professional Chalk Artists from all over the world came to o Victoria BC to show us their skills! Check out the pictures from weekend!
Serena Ryder took us by surprise a couple of years ago, when she stomped onto the radio and is now firmly planted on the top of our list of Canadian artists. My 9-year old girl (ok, me too) really, really wanted to see Serena Ryder’s show, so when we found ourselves with wristbands for the Rifflandia music festival this weekend — we had to go.
Planted in front of some large stacks of speakers (with earplugs) while her mom snapped away with glee in the photo-pit, my child become a real fan. A fan of live music, a fan of the crowd, a fan of the music festival and all it’s silliness and light-hearted fun. She became a fan of the powerful young woman that sang with soul, heart and energy.
