We’re always stoked when Cirque du Soleil comes to Victoria. Opening night at Varekai thrilled us bringing the elements of dance, acrobatics, humour, music and color — all presented in a level of artistry that the Cirque du Soleil productions are known for. Varekia continues at Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre through May 31st. Tickets from www.selectyourtickets.com

Here’s a look at opening night and a peek backstage at Cirque du Soleil – Varekai:

This has been a big week for Jillian McCue. The 11 year old Gordon Head Middle School grade sixer has been lobbying Saanich council for two years to allow miniature goats in her back yard and finally got her day in the sun. Monday night she stood up before council armed with a 132 name petition, a Give Me Goats T-Shirt and the support of the Mayor himself and gave an amazingly confident and compelling speech for her potential new “kids”.

Want To Save Big On Your Grocery Bill?

Posted on by Forbes & Marshall

Lina and Steve Zussino are known as “Canada’s Frugal Couple” having saved thousands of dollars a year on their grocery bill and rewarding themselves vacations on the points they collected. Inspiring to say the least. If we all just do half of want they do every day, we’d save a lot on something that always takes a huge chunk out of our monthly budgets.

To Dog or Not to Dog…That is the Question

Posted on by Mel Z

Yes. He tried to eat that flower too.

Yes. He tried to eat that flower too.

To Dog…or Not to Dog — That is the Question.

We’re doggy-sitting this beautiful dog now — it’s kind of a “trial run”? You know, to see if we could fit a dog into our life? He’s so sweet, he’s a Golden Retriever, the “supermodel” of dogs, with the personality to go with it. But I’ll say this — having a dog in your life is a pretty big deal compared to having cats, hamsters and fish, haha.

Hmmm….To Dog or Not To Dog…That is the Question
