Savoring An Exquisite Cup Of TeaGala Tea!

Can't think of anything better to do on a rainy west coast Sunday afternoon!

Apparently, Dolphins Maintain Awareness For 15 Days.

Some very interesting news. Recent research suggests that dolphins can maintain vigilant behavior through echolocation for 15 days without interruption or cognitive impairment. It is believed that dolphins may continuously echo-locate and accurately report the presence of targets for at least 15 days without interruption.

British Columbia Association Of Travel Writers Fall Gala 2012.

Kathryn and I attended the BC Association of Travel Writers Fall Gala yesterday afternoon. During this event, there was a brainteaser contest wherein we were all separated into random teams in order to quiz this illustrious roomful of travel writers on their collective knowledge about some rather obscure geographical and historical facts. As evidenced by this picture you can see, "The Aardvarks" triumphed!

FRONT ROW! - Bob Dylan at Vancouver's Rogers Arena.

Bob Dylan's performance last night at Rogers Arena far exceeded my expectations. Kathryn really enjoyed the show too. Surprisingly, despite releasing his 35th studio album, Tempest, in September to critical acclaim and seemingly endless positive reviews, Mr Zimmerman did not play one new song. 
Mark Knopfler also played a killer set from his solo catalog to an approving audience.
Thanks baby for scoring FRONT ROW seats. What a fun night!
