CLICK HERE To search homes for sale in Greater Vancouver & the Fraser Valley Last week, in the afternoon, we were paid a visit by a family of Black Bears.  I had heard that there was a mother with three cubs wandering around but they had eluded my site until now.  What a cute family they make, I have seen 2 cubs many a time but three!  The runt of the litter is not even black, he is very much brown as the video shows, so much so that I would mistake him for a Brown Bear cub.  Brown Bears are much more aggressive and dangerous to humans then the Black Bear, more along the lines of the Grizzly Bear.  Black Bears are not an unusual site in the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley real estate areas of British Columbia and the Albion / Thornhill neighborhoods of Maple Ridge are no exception but ...

YES.... There is GOLD in them thar hills!! I find it quite relaxing when I have a couple of free hours (Which is very seldom), to be able to drive 25 minutes up to Golden Ears Park, get out  on the river bank, and pan.  Though I have only done this a couple of times, I have found a few flakes that are actually gold... Most of them are fools gold... a magnet helps you tell the difference.. I think I am going to walk up to the waterfall next time and see if I can find a couple nuggets!(Note:  Good time of year to go.. right after the run off... which carries the gold down)Yes... I am a NOVICE.... Panner... but it is still fun and relaxing.  Hope to see you up there! -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------   Looking for a home in Maple Ridge or t...

CLICK HERE if You Want to Look at homes in Maple Ridge, Coquitlam, Vancouver & the Fraser Valley area!  Can you really understand what Men's Hockey Gold means to a Canadian? The short answer is no, if you are not Canadian you can not possibly understand the cultural, political and sociological implication of what Olympic Gold in Hockey means to a Canuck.  I have heard many suggest the average Canadian would gladly have traded all the 13 other Gold Medals Canada earned just to get that one.  Don't get me wrong, we are very proud that our sparesley populated nation of 35 million  set a Winter Games record of 14 Gold but... hell we're talking about hockey eh! The closest thing for an American might be if the World Series was truly a World Series and it was all on the line against Japan, bu...
