The Hobbit House

Well guys, we can all breathe easy, the Hobbit House is safe! I have to admit that when I saw the signs go up for the King Edward Greens development my heart sank a little bit. I assumed they were going to tear the creepy iconic Hobbit House down and I would no longer see the busses of tourists gawking at it’s quirky roof and magical lamp post, but in an act of compassion for this beloved little house, the Vancouver city council approved a re-zoning proposal (see more here).

Still Alice

Under the shade of a Florida palm tree, I picked up the book “Still Alice” and got lost in the story of a woman with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. If you haven’t heard of this book, it is now a major motion picture starring Julianne Moore, who actually just won the Oscar for best actress for playing the role of Alice. It’s the tragic, yet inspiring story of a woman who struggles with this disease.
