Sorry, I don't usually post stuff like that, but this strikes a chord with me... Please sign the petition.

It's time to stand up and protect our community—Vancouver is not for sale. The housing needs of Greater Vancouver residents are more important than the profit margins of foreign speculators. Australia has already  restricted foreign investment in residential real estate—what are we waiting for? We demand that Premier Christy Clark, Mayor Gregor Robertson and all other mayors and city councillors of the Greater Vancouver Regional District introdu...

April is Autism Awareness Month. There are a lot of great ways to support Autism-related causes - one of the best is simply education.

Watch this moving video (http://ow.ly/jDuew) and join our friends at Include Autism in their efforts to support children, teens, and young adults with Autism! http://includeautism.org

Remembering SRV.

Oct. 3rd 1954 - Aug. 27th 1990

It's too bad I discovered his music 2 years after his death. Would have loved to see him play live!

This was at Hollyburn Peak. My 28-300mm is heavy, but pretty good as an all purpose lens. Maybe it's the D600, but I don't recall my 28-300mm giving results this good before. This reminds me almost of my 105mm. Do all your lenses give better results now with the D600?

We visited Austin in August 2013. The place was packed, and, from the moment we stepped in, we were treated like VIPs by the doorman who went out of his way to find us chairs so we could enjoy the great music (Alan Haynes) and drinks better. This place felt like home to us. Thanks!

Fantastic lunch experience! One of the best in memory! Having read about how great this place was, my wife and I decided to give it a try on our recent trip. We arrived just past 11:30am and found the door to be open although the staff politely told us that they only started at noon (but they allowed us to come in anyway). Good thing we arrived early... By the time noon hit, the place was nearly full! The restaurant is really tight and you're practically elbow-to-elbow, back-to-back, side-to-side, etc. with everyone else (I don't know how the staff manages to navigate through all this!). As mentioned in previous reviews, every seat is used and our 4 people table eventually filled up with a local couple. We had an amazing time chatting with them and learning about Italian food (the man's serious comment about the "small" 1kg Bistecca alla Fiorentina made us laugh). They offered us to try their wine, the tasty beans from their dish and they even let us try their dessert (an excellent almond biscuit that we dipped in some liquor; not sure what it's called). Good times! The food was excellent! Their menu changes daily I believe and on the Friday we were there I had an amazing cut of beef fillet ("Filetto Bistecca" in Italian?). Even though it didn't have any sauce -- which I usually like --, it was incredibly tasty and perfectly cooked. At 14 Euros, a steak of that size would have probably cost double in Canada and most probably not be as good, too. My wife's shrimp pasta dish was equally simple looking yet amazingly flavorful. The (family?) staff was very friendly from the moment we stepped in, everyone smiling and looking very relaxed. It's amazing how calm and friendly they were considering the chaos of tourists and locals around them! I noticed a few people got up to take pictures of the kitchen (right by the tables). I asked one of the staff if it was OK and after he nodded, took a snap of the smiling butcher and the "small" gigantic Fiorentina steak. What an amazing restaurant! Everything was just perfect. My wife and I came out of there beaming with smiles and the effect lasted long after we had left. "Grazie mille" to the staff and wonderful couple we briefly met on this most memorable dining experience!

My wife and I agree that these were the best mussels ("Coquelet de moules") we ever had at this restaurant. We just came back from Paris recently and still, Seattle's Café Campagne beats them all! The mussels are HUGE and juicy, the broth excellent. Try them out! You won't be disappointed! :)

Best Vietnamese/Cambodian restaurant in Vancouver bar none! Their deep fried chicken wings are legendary! My wife and I also love their deep fried squid and prawns. The restaurant is very popular and has an almost perpetual lineup, no matter what time we go. Service does not go beyond the bare minimum required; it's "enough", but feels a bit cold. Excellent cuisine at a reasonable price -- check it out!

Best chicken and rice dish I've ever had! It's a shame it's a 6 hour drive to get there from Vancouver, BC!

We've been thoroughly disappointed with French food on our recent trip to Paris, but "Au Bon Accueil" is one of the only two highlights from our 11 day stay there. Our lunch bill _did_ come down to 78 Euros with wine, but still, it was soooo amazing that we still feel it was worth it! My wife and I opted for the 32 Euro 3-course lunch menu and everything was perfect. For starters I had the Vichyssoise (cold potato and leek soup) and my wife had some salad. For the main I had lamb (I don't remember what my wife had). My wife doesn't like lamb, but when I convinced her to try mine, you should have seen her face! She loved it! For dessert I had their own "Au Bon Accueil" style lemon meringue pie (without a crust, served in a large martini glass; amazing how the meringue seemed to be partly in the lemon filling itself, like an iceberg) and my wife had the Floating Island. She enjoyed it so much that I think she would have licked the whole caramel sauce off the plate if no one was watching! :p Service was top-notch, with a smile and good presence (i.e. not too intrusive or forgetful). So, quite an expensive lunch, but excellent, excellent food! We will come back again next time we stay in Paris.
