A little reminder of sunny summer in the current rainy days.

Ancient eyes

What us oldsters have to put up with just to be able to read a newspaper. It gets progressive worse, first reading glasses then magnifying glass.

On Sundays and holidays transit doesn't started till 7 AM. With the Skytrain this first train departs from selected stations only. These are the trains waiting on the track at one of these selected stations.

Anybody know the year of this car is?

Didn't realized that they can do three bins at a time.

This has to be one of my all-time least favourite structure. In comparison the CBC's power plant looking building on Georgia is a beauty.

Thought Lazy Boy was holding a demo when from a distance saw people sitting on these recliners. As I get closer then realized it wasn't the case.

Harbour Centre

Always find Harbour Centre in that unlike most highrises it is not tall, flat, and featureless. This distinctiveness makes it standout in the cityscape.

Remembrance Day

This used to be a common sight during the first week of November. They slowly disappeared as the aging vets become too old to man the table. I was very surprised to encounter this one at the mall.

For the Fallen

...They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them...
Laurence Binyon, 1914

Longer hours

Don't you love those spin doctors? I mean anybody who had ever visited a TD bank since the merger with Canada Trust can understand why TD needs the longer hours. Otherwise they would've tell their customers to come back another day. Many branches seem to have a perpetual shortage of tellers.

Mobile ads

These moving ads are ever more popular. Companies are willing to pay good money to car owners who consent to have their vehicles used. It is a good source of income for those who do mind driving around town in a billboard.

Tim Hortons

When was the last time anybody in a coffee or donut shop without seeing a cruiser idling out front or a couple of the city's finest enjoying a cup of java inside?

Growth power

We may not like weeds on our lawn and we know we'll never win the Battle of the Weeds. But must admire its capability to grow just about anywhere.

Baby shopping

Does Superstore sells more than groceries?

Election USA

Today will be a historic day for our neighbours south of the border. We should expect the television channels there to provide full coverage from the get go.

Garbage ad?

It may be civil thing to do but still imagine telling people to look for your ads on the garbage bin at the corner of such and such?

Contact on the go

Now why would anybody buy a product and embeds it in their eyes over the telephone? Guess this is no worse than those using online pharmacies.
