Today the guys and I had a quick tour of Forbidden Brewing in Courtenay. Michael and Nate treated us to a few samples followed by a tour and visit. It was great and the beer was spot on. We look forward to working with them at the Taphouse. Check out this link for a short video:

Thanks for your support…

As many of you know, my little brother Tim had his second heart transplant on 23 December 2014.  He’d been on the transplant list since early September with one false start in October.  When the beeper finally went off, it was a go – a new heart was ready and a new life pending.  I won’t go into all the details here as I’m putting together a movie which will have the whole journey.

The support for our family by our friends, co-workers and community has been amazing.  Thank you for what you’ve done and what you’re doing.  Stay tuned for more as Tim moves through rehabilitation and into this new chapter of his life.

A Gourmet Picnic!

header-logoIt’s becoming known as the Provence of Canada; the Comox Valley, home to over 100 agri-businesses, from cheese and yoghurt factories to honey producers, vineyards and wineries, shellfish growers and bison farms.  Today, joined by a few of our good friends, Josée and I spent three hours at Flavour, the North Island’s gourmet picnic, hosted by Coastal Black Winery.  We went last year and had a great time sampling dozens of foods and beverages, most of which are produced within a short drive of the Valley.  If you’re interested in learning more about agri-business in the Valley, just click here and here.  The event this year was fantastic, although a little rainy, and I can’t wait to go again!

An eagle’s eye of the Comox peninsula…

For those of you who like the aerial view, here is a short video of my recent flight from Vancouver Int’l Airport (YVR) to Comox Airport (YQQ).  I attended the annual CIFP conference which was pretty good as far as conferences go.  I flew on a Pacific Coastal flight and I’m fairly certain (if my memory is correct) that the plane was a Beechcraft 1900-C.  It was a short trip but very pleasant!
