New Year’s Eve in the V3H

At our house, New Year’s Eve is a low key affair. For one thing, my husband works pretty much every year, often sneaking in the door at around 11:40pm. For another, we have a 4-year-old and a 1-year-old. There just isn’t a lot of partying in our lives at the moment. However, you may not […]

QuiRING in the New Year

Alright, you’re looking for something fun to do to ring in the second decade of the 2000’s (or the last year of the first decade for you stickler types). But let’s face it, going downtown is a hassle, and since you’re going to want to drink, that’s a very long transit or very expensive cab […]

Merry Christmas from the V3H

From our family to yours, best wishes for a very merry Christmas, filled with happiness and joy.

Video of Coquitlam Christmas Lights

Well, as the snow flys here in the V3H, Christmas is on the way. My daughter and I got out earlier this week to get some photos and video footage of some of our amazing local light displays. We have embedded the photos and the video in the map at, but here are the […]

Port Coquitlam Garbage Collection

The City of Port Coquitlam is serious about reducing waste in their municipality. To accomplish that, they have enacted one of the most advanced garbage collection plans in the Lower Mainland. For example, as of November 2, 2009 they have been collecting all leftover food scraps in green bins, including meat, dairy, food-soiled paper, bones […]

Santa and Christmas Concerts

Santa is very busy these days, what with Christmas fast approaching. But we are very lucky here in the V3H, because he seems to be able to find time to visit with children of all ages in our neck of the woods. And where Santa is, you know that Christmas music isn’t far behind. So […]
