Various Vancouver

Greetings Constant Readers...

Finally got a little down time and figured I'd post a few pics from around the Vancouver venues...
(Click pics to see bigger versions)


-5 Degrees...
Bloody Cold


Vancouver from the overlook on the way to Cypress Mountain
(Really- click on this one-the view is awesome...)


Hey! We got our own office again!
Now I'm just looking for a couch to stick in the hallway.


Stass at the ROO- Richmond Oval - Home of Speed Skating...


The ROO, even cooler on the inside...

Wait a second...

The place is made up of glued-together Popsicle sticks!

The Gear- (A/K/A PPE) Steel-toes boots, reflective hi-viz vests, hard hats, mandatory safety briefings - a 2-hour one at VANOC and a 20 minute "Site Hazards" briefing at each venue... More Nanny-State crap from Big Brother.


Watch that first step, it's a doozy...
For a place that's all "Work Safe", y'think  they'd spring for a set of stairs for the OVR at Cypress?
Maybe a couple cinder blocks?


Yes, all the stylish developers are wearing the fluorescent orange and yellow safety vests...Get yours today!


CFR- Cypress, FreeStyle...Home of SpongeMark Squarehands.
Wait.... There's no bumps?! Where are the moguls?


And of course, Brunch is still around...
She's keeping an eye on the IDF right now.

I had to dissuade her from helping us with running our fiber connections.

She kept gnawing on the Cat-5 connectors...


More frosty and freezing updates to come...

Hey Luc,
before you go casting aspersions,
I suggest you review this post:

I await the retraction of your spurious comment...

Luc,
we Floridians aren't wusses, we're SMART. I realize that being Canadian you don't have the option of living in a more hospitible location but we do and wisely choose to live where snowplows aren't needed.

Regarding Stass' attire, what kind of code is he writing that he needs a safety vest? Hopefully the new golf system will be safer.

Bug,

Don't mind me ... It's the jealousy talking. Another ~12 years and my wife and I are moving down in the keys with this little baby ... http://www.beneteauusa.com/#/?boat=Beneteau40

Luc,
come on down with the rest of the snowbirds, but what's with the USA-built boat? The Canadian gov't allows you to buy American? Doesn't that take jobs away from Canadians? (hopefully you're in on the joke there).

12 yrs? you'd better hurry. According to Travis and his wacko friends the Keys will be underwater by then.

wow, 3 Ben's in one thread...wierd.
