Who won the podcasting category, you ask? [Insert drum roll] The winner was Lip Gloss and Laptops. After the Credits was a long shot, so no surprise is wasn’t us. I don’t know Kerry Ann but I’ve spoken with Airdrie a couple times. She’s good people and the win is well deserved. And I can’t not mention runner up,Choogle On With Uncle Weed. Dave, a.k.a. Uncle Weed, is a consummate story teller and he does it well.

And a shout-out to Rebecca (Miss 604) for all her hard work and a job well done. Thanks to her, $1800 was raised for the food bank and our little corner of the world had a top-up of cheer and goodwill.

Exhaust spewing cars hotline in Vancouver

My amigo Justin passed this along, useful for folks walking and tranisting in Vancouver.

Anyone who commutes may occasionally be passed by a vehicle that is spewing exhaust. This is a major contributor to smog and health concerns in the lower mainland. You can report these vehicles at 604.435.SMOG.  Make sure to record the license plate number as well as where and when you saw the vehicle.
