Public market

The Granville Island Public Market started in the latter part of the 1970s as a farmers' market. It was a roaring success from the get go. Today it is home to a wide variety of products ranging from produce to tea and herbs, from donuts to organic baked goods, from candles to oriental seals. It is a tourist destination as well.

Went to Granville Island this morning. These are photos taken on the outside of the public market. Will post photos of the market tomorrow.

Chick invasion

We are accustomed to the images of young men shirtless attending Green Bay Packers football games in the middle of winter. This photo in yesterday's paper shows the girls are not only into football but just foolhardy as the young lads.

To Safeway employees

Saw this at one of the Safeway stores, very thoughtful of Safeway. Wonder what Safeway uses to fry its employees, frying pan or deep fryer?

More Christmas lights

Some of the previous Christmas lights postings are kind of wimpy. These pack more of a wham.
