Meanwhile in Canada...Thank you +Alvan Lam for sharing this T.O. experience...  +Molson Canadian more red fridges planned for other cities?  ;)
 
Standing in one corner in Toronto's    district , is a red colour fridge. Anyone who wants access to the beer, have to say
 "I am Canadian" in six languages.   It is an appliance that depends on Google's real-time voice translation .
Proud to be Canadian? +su ann lim +Rayne Dowell +Bill Graham and anyone else I have miss, add yourself!

Hi +Alvan Lam​. Tx for asking. I'm fine...just a tad busier than normal for much online engagement. I'll be back more regularly before long. :)

Meanwhile in Australia...

"The city of Melbourne assigned trees email addresses so citizens could report problems. Instead, people wrote thousands of love letters to their favorite trees."  

+City of Surrey +City of Vancouver please consider adopting this great idea. The email addresses provide a way for citizens to express their appreciation for public property (& the work of Parks staff), helps cultivate knowledge about different tree species, protects the wellbeing of the trees, and launches a new form of local recreation.  :)

+Panah Rad no kidding. It must have been traumatic. But it looks like Foghorn the rooster will be back on the job because of his new feet.

Oh wow! Thanks to +Friends of NASA for this dramatic view of what's going on in this region.  <waving from under all that smoke>
 
Smoke Blankets British Columbia: View 1 | NASA Terra Satellite
July 8, 2015: A difficult fire season in western Canada brought its impacts to coastal city streets in early July 2015. A thick pall of smoke settled over Vancouver and adjacent areas of British Columbia, leading some residents to wear face masks and health officials to warn residents and World Cup tourists against outdoor activities.

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite acquired this image in the late morning on July 6th. Note how the tan and gray smoke almost completely obscures the Strait of Georgia and southern Vancouver Island. Winds shifted abruptly between July 5 and 6, driving the smoke plume toward the east, dispersing it in some places while fouling the air in areas to the east, such as the Fraser Valley.

In the images, the principal source of the smoke appears to be fires burning 100 to 150 kilometers north of the city of Vancouver and roughly 50 to 70 kilometers north and west of Pemberton and the ski resort area of Whistler. The Elaho Valley fire was sparked by lightning in mid-June 2015, and stayed relatively small and contained until it started growing vigorously on July 4. By the morning of July 7, the fire and its scar covered about 20,000 hectares (50,000 acres), and the blaze was uncontrolled on all fronts. Fire managers reported crown fires—blazes high in the forest canopy that can leap across areas quickly when fanned by winds. Thick smoke and gusty winds prevented airborne firefighting flights on July 6, according to news reports.

To the northeast of the Elaho fire, the Boulder Creek Wildfire Complex also exploded, growing tenfold in a day. Firefighters estimate that the blaze spans at least 5,500 hectares (13,500 acres); it is not contained on any front. To the east (not in the image), the Cougar Creek fire has claimed 5,000 hectares (12,000 acres).

Western Canada and Alaska have been plagued by an intense fire season that started earlier than normal (usually late July). Below-average winter snowfall and extreme spring and early summer temperatures have left a vast region dry, hot, and primed for fire. As of July 7, 2015, at least 182 reported wildfires were burning in British Columbia; 23 of them were sparked on July 6 alone.

According to Canadian fire officials and news reports, there have been 841 fires in the province since April 1, and nearly half of them have been started by lightning. Observers in Canada and Alaska have noted higher than usual numbers of lightning strikes.

My very-Texas elderly neighbor, JR (for real) called out to a woman who let her dog shit on his front lawn over and over. He asked her where she lived so he could drop it off later. Never saw her again. Which could mean many things.

A big hat tip to citizens of Vancouver's Eastside  and VPD.  

During my commute today I  witnessed a young homeless man holding an articulate sign at a stop light. The woman in the car closest to him rolled down her window, gave him two bananas and a bill. He was just as delighted to get the bananas (he peeled one right away with a big grin on his face) as the cash. They exchanged waves as the light turned green. (It was a long red light)

Tx for the share +Steve Sakamoto !
 
Pretty incredible police sting that went wrong so well.
A 30-year VPD officer went undercover on the Downtown Eastside as a wheelchair dependent person in a bid to find people victimizing the vulnerable.

Health benefit from living with trees, who knew! ;p  

Apparently, 10 trees along the street = feeling 1.4 years younger...

A very large study in Toronto shows that an additional 10 trees along a neighborhood street improves health in a way comparable to "being 1.4 years younger."

The same reason Turtles are not legal to possess in NS, they have been known to carry Salmonella, but people put the turtle up to their face, or they handle it, then tough their face, and it is too risky. Can't make people smarter, so have to restrict handling turtles now.

The very mild winter and dry summer has resulted in innumerable wild fires across the province of British Columbia.

For the first time that I recall, those of us right along  the breezy coast have been affected by smoky conditions for days on end.  Sunday morning I awoke thinking there's a house fire nearby!
