Lions win again!

What an awesome game!! I actually got the hang of the game and loved it!! The only complaint I had was that ticketmaster sells you two full priced tickets but BC Place Stadium makes your attendant sit behind you!! What a rip off! We ended up sorting it out in the end but we were not happy as were other people who were seated in disabled seating.. especially those who have never been treated like that before! Then leaving the stadium to make it back to the skytrain was another gong show.. picture this.. its raining outside, dark and cold. We leave the stadium thinking the skytrain is right around the corner.. same place we came from.. right? WRONG! We get to where the train entrance is but there is not wheelchair access so we have to walk.. no kidding you.. about 4 blocks (we may have gone the wrong way) in the rain.. then when we get to where we were told to go.. the ramp is closed!! We have to walk part way back when I see a wheelchair sign pointing inside some shady looking building.. Jo and I go inside where it's even more shady go into the elevator and go to a door that has a smashed window.. closed.. good grief now what! We walk down this very shady hallway.. where we could have been murdered any second and no one would ever know.. and then we find the door to the outside.. walk some more in the rain and finally find the trains.. the ride back to Surrey was equally amusing.. drunk fools on the train.. drunk fools in costumes on the train.. my goodness.. what a night!! So much fun!!

I'm adding some pictures from the game and of people at the game.. like I said before.. there were some drunk fools in costumes!

Are you ready for some Football!

Yes I am going to my first football game tonight! BC Lions vs. Winnipeg Blue Bommers. I am totally psyched.. not that I'm a football fan but it will be the whole atmosphere.. and the junk food (so much for my diet today)! I'm hoping to take some good photos.. which is my hidden motive to go.. I've never taken pictures at a sporting event so I'm really looking forward to it.. I'll post the shots if they turn out good.. I'd love to go to a Canucks game soon too.. hockey is my sport!! Gotta love that Linden!!

Go Lions Go!

Is it Friday yet?

I love my job.. really I do.. but some days I would just love to take a hiatus and hide for about a month.. not have to listen to anyone's problems, not have to do any paper work, answer the phones, use a computer.. I'm so tired! Perhaps that is generally called burnout.. all I know is tomorrow is another day and I will be there to face it.. no matter how much I want to stay in bed.

Have you ever wondered what it would take for there to be peace in the world? I think about it from time to time... and I think I have come to a conclusion.. every day, every person should give a flower to a stranger. Don't say anything.. just get a flower, hand it to a stranger, smile and walk away. It isn't hard to do.. doesn't even have to cost anything.. it's just a simple gesture that will make someone else feel good.. maybe it won't end the wars of the world but it could prevent a war from happening in your neighborhood.. hmmm.. just a thought.

Welcome to my first blog!

I figured that since so many people are blogging, I should join the craze. It's autumn in Vancouver and I think it has to be the most beautiful autumn I have ever seen. Have you noticed how beautiful the trees are this year? The colours are amazing! The maple and oak trees have the most incredible reds, yellows and oranges.. It's a photographers dream I tell ya! My best friend was out a few weeks ago and we went out to take pictures.. there were some really amazing scenes.. I'll post some of the pictures when I figure out how to do that. Anyway.. thanks for reading my first post.. I'll write more soon.
