Symphony of Fire

On Wednesday, the sky exploded with stars at the United Kingdom showed their pyrotechnic chops for all of Vancouver to see. The annual event takes place over two weeks where four countries (Canada always included) go head to head and compete with fireworks paired with symphony music (which plays over a local radio station). No matter the country, the fireworks are launched from the same barge anchored deep into the English Bay. All over the city, people gather on rooftops, beaches, balconies, sidewalks and backyards to watch the shows. For each show, the feeling of community is really overwhelming, perhaps reminding each of us that we're all in this together and we all need and appreciate beauty in our lives.

For Wednesday's show, Patty and I were lucky enough to get an invitation to board some friend's 40' cruiser (thank you Donna and Dave!) and enjoy dinner and cocktails while waiting for and watching the show. There was good music, laughter and some very tiny bathing suits. And the invitation couldn't have come at a better time, during the most extreme heat wave Vancouver (and the Pacific Northwest) has ever seen. The afternoon aboard the Bengal Den, the thermometer hit the highest it's ever gone in Vancouver history. (34 degrees Celsius.)

I put a little video together recapping the night.

PS: God help the drag queens in pantyhose and makeup this weekend at Vancouver's Gay Pride parade!

34 C? That's like 93 F. Here in Portland it was 107F. Glad I was in the mountains last week.

But I forgot to mention it was MUGGY! Super humid and stagnant. It felt like 107.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I started to get real money.
It's all about how to select a proper companion who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the income with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.
