RT @GusF: Can’t believe Vancouver is warmer than Las Vegas today.
Dwntwn Vancouver is super quiet – hardly any cars + tons of peeps wearing huge event/media laminates + speaking dozens of languages. Fun.
Translink may be big Olympic winner. Meeting tons of Vancouverites on the bus who’ve never taken transit before + R surprised & satisfied

must retract my Telus ebill snark. You CAN see older bills, just not using ‘View History’. huh ? http://ow.ly/i/qM7
I’m really unimpressed with Telus e-bill system. Now I can only see current and previous month’s bills. arg. #fail
24 hours and a bit before EB and I go see the Robert LePage show at W. Excited.

Yatch Spotting on the North Shore – Meduse at Lonsdale Quay http://ow.ly/13gJx
Yacht Meduse in North Vancouver [pic] http://ff.im/fj02d
My little sailboat Madsu remains tucked away under a tarp next to my house for the winter.
I still can’t resist cruising the docks, looking at boats – a prairie boy who’s turned sea crazed.
This 198 foot beauty is called Méduse, and she was (and may still be) owned by Paul Allen, one of the founders of Microsoft and a fairly regular visitor to these parts. She was hanging out at Lonsdale Quay when I was there on Monday (Feb 1).
I wonder if she’s here is here for the Olympics ?
That’s a lot of hull to keep sparkly clean.
UPDATE: A friend on Twitter tells me she’s now owned by the Washington family – they’re the people who own Cates tugs of North Vancouver – and the owners of these docks…so that makes some sense.
Yacht Meduse at Lonsdale Quay – anyone know if Paul Allen still owns her ? photo – > http://ow.ly/13gBY
