Hi Everyone


We are coming to the end of the month again so I will be hosting the "Diamond in the Rock" open mic night tonight at The Roadhouse. Show starts at 7 and goes to 9. Earlier is better if you want to get a spot. Love to have you come out and see everybody again. This is a great opportunity to get out and work on your performance, confidence comes from just getting up and doing it. Must be 19 or younger to perform.
Hope to see you there.

Little Campbell River - Big Job

We can feel a lot safer now as BNSF has replaced the old rail bridge over the Little Campbell River near the Semiahmoo Band land.

Joke Of The Day

I recently just moved to an address between Sunrise Avenue and Sunset Blvd., a couple of White Rock's West Beach streets, and was explaining to a clerk where my home was located for billing purposes. "I live between Sunrise and Sunset," I told her.

"Oh, honey," she knowingly replied, "we all do."
