cpmvfsgu day 7: salt spring island (sunday)

Today's big news is that the GP Dermatologist in Campbell River will see me on the day we are driving through that town, on our way home. Which is two days from now! I'm so relieved I could cry.I called and pleaded my case -- to be honest, just a simple explanation, I didn't need to exaggerate! -- and also explained we would be passing through town in a couple of days. The scary part was waiting to see if they actually had the referral. I suppose if they hadn't, I could have corrected that with ...

14 Fun Things to Do in Las Vegas for Kids (adult’s like these too)

Should you visit Las Vegas with kids? Once again on our US travels, we were faced with many people telling us Vegas just wasn’t a kid-friendly destination. Much like they told us about Mardi Gras in New Orleans with kids. We went and had a great time. If a place has kids living in it, then usually you can find kid friendly attractions. Exploring downtown Las Vegas Sure Vegas is unsavory in many ways, but you can avoid that – and introduce an education at the same time. You’...

Queenside, Dulwich Hill

Queenside Dulwich Hill is a café that's a little bit in love with sandwiches and coffee. Start with their cappuccino shake, an eye-catching burping, bursting bubble topped frappucino with chocolate covered bubbles that expand before your eyes. Then segue into their sandwiches that cut deep with pop culture references from the "Marble Rye", the "Freddy Got Fingered" fish finger sandwich or The Texas Coleslaw Massacre sandwich!

Most beautiful university libraries

Most people go to libraries to read or check out books — not stare in awe at the 15th-century wood paneling and stained-glass windows. In many libraries around the world, however, the buildings’ stunning aesthetics are just as appealing as their content, making you almost forget what book you were looking for in the first place. Since libraries are essential to the learning process, it’s no surprise that some of the most impressive libraries are located in universities. While we tend to think...

Raising an extreme, outdoor athlete

“I was watching them and pacing up and down the beach on my phone, talking to [my husband] Dan and saying, ‘I’m never doing this again,’” says Caitlin Pardo de Zela of watching her teenage daughter Georgia Lockwood surfing out in heavy, 10-foot waves with a coach, a former big wave surfer.

Maps of Mexican food in NYC

New York City is known for many things. Mexican food is not one of them. In recent years, the Big Apple has been described as a supposed “Mexican food wasteland” that’s “consistently underrated — if not totally ignored.” In some ways, those sentiments ring true. Only around 3.5 percent of NYC’s 27,000-plus restaurants are Mexican restaurants, according to a new study of the Mexican cuisine landscape in the city. But that doesn’t mean it’s not worth documenting. Researchers from Stony Brook Un...
