Stars to the Food Bank and Bear Aware for offering to help people pick up their apples. Thanks to those who keep their garbage secured as well.

A big star to Alison and Jack for a fabulous Scotch Club night.

Stingers to those who despite repeated attempts every year by the Food Bank and Bear Aware amongst others to pick up your apples continue to leave them there to attract bears. Because of you FOUR bears were killed this year.

Stars to Kal Tire for fitting me in and getting my winter tires on before I had to drive the Roger’s Pass.

Stingers to the snow.

Stars to Eddie for wearing cowboy boots. Your hungry dates thank you.

Stingers to the drivers who refuse to slow down when the weather gets bad.

Stingers (for the millionth time) to the people who smash bottles in the streets instead of recycling them.

Stars to the guy who lent me his jack when I had a flat tire in Nicholson.

Stars to Bill Usher for his insightful and inspirational thank you speech.
