Life Before the Taser by Douglas Barker and Amanda in England: The Missing Novel by Darlene Foster
Congratulations to all who ran for office, winners and losers, and to their families, campaign volunteers and supporters. The Fat Lady has sung. It is over.
Every once in a while audiences need a reminder that Matthew McConaughey can do more than take his shirt off (you heard me, Magic Mike fans). Jeff Nichols' Mud announces it loud and clear.
IF you want an SUV with a premium feel but not a premium price tag, VW may have a solution for you in the form of a vehicle called Touareg.
IT'S a housing development now, a knot of quiet residential streets with names like Mulberry, Maplewood and Chickadee.
The poll that came closest to calling the result right in Tuesday's provincial election was still wildly wrong.
"Geraniums in two planters on my south-facing balcony have wintered well and still have blooms. Is it too late to cut them back? If it's not too late, how should it be done."
“I think, though, this is not a time to commit sociology, if I can use an expression.”

The poll that came closest to calling the result right in Tuesday's provincial election was still wildly wrong. A Forum Research poll done six days before the vote showed a mere two-point gap between the Liberals and the NDP. Of course, it still had the NDP out in front, not losing by almost five per cent in the popular vote and 17 seats in the Legislature.

Technology is a wonderful thing. We no longer have to worry about "big brother" watching us. We are way past that concept with the proliferation of smartphones. Snap, you're on Facebook. Tag, you're it. All this accessibility of information (whether we want it or not) is astounding, confounding and sometimes confusing. We have come to rely on our electronic wizards (I kinda enjoy it as I challenge myself to outwit my smartphone). We are making progress, but we will probably never be friends, especially since it just ate a bunch of emails I was going to use for this week's column.
MY reaction after comparing the May 1 letter to the editor from North Vancouver councillors Guy Heywood (city) and Alan Nixon (district) with the May 12 letter from mayors Darrell Mussatto and Richard Walton was to ask if they sit on the same councils.
WHAT first began in 2006 as a valiant, but low-key attempt to introduce Vancouver diners to our own spot prawn fishery has turned into the city's most delicious celebration of spring.
KIDS love to hang their jewelry and artwork up in their rooms.
KNOWLEDGEABLE gardeners who think globally while acting locally understand how to keep their gardens beautiful by growing in sustainable ways using effective techniques.
WE all know that our young people are going to be facing very different challenges than we did when we reached adulthood.
AS some readers know, I spend a small part of my professional life away from my desk undertaking what I think are compelling adventures and expeditions.
My husband loves to cook. If that's what you can call it.
