Darwin Head is Canada’s newest millionaire! After the first period of the Canucks game last night, he had a chance shoot 20 pucks from the centre line. If he shot 15 in the net in 24 seconds, he would take home the money. Click here to see what happened. By the way, he and his friends won four cars too!! We knew he could do it, he practiced with Bobby Orr himself!

FLOWER COUNT had Victorian’s looking around and counting the blossoms and buds everywhere. To find out more check out FLOWER COUNT HEADQUARTERS. Last year we counted over 3 billion buds. Our record year was 2002, when we counted over 8 billion. Now we have something to tell the relatives back in Winnipeg!

This is great…. a young couple from Argentina decided they were going to pack the kids into their 1928 Graham-Paige antique auto with wooden wheels and travel around the world. So far, they have criss-crossed North and South America, from the Amazon rain forest to the frozen tundra of Alaska. All at 35 mph! Mom, Candeleria, wanted her baby born in Canada, so in November, a new addition to the family came along. They are staying in Victoria for awhile to try and make enough to ship their car to Asia to continue their journey. The cool thing is, the car is on display at Mayfair for the next few days. You’ll have to stop by and say Buenos Dias!

I was certainly surprised on Valentines Day 2008 when Michael brought in the UVic Vocal Jazz group to sing a love song to me. These guys were great! This group of ambitious students are doing Singing Valentines as a Fundraiser, proceeds benefit the University of Victoria Vocal Jazz Fund. These four (well dressed) young men arrived with a flower and chocolates, and sang me a sweet and tender love song. A Valentines to remember for sure! If you’d like to contact “Love Four Sale” singing Valentines – call Ryan: 507-4146
Happy Valentines everyone,

Finally the man who claims that he is the son of JFK has come forward and had his photo taken. Jack Worthington allowed the Globe and Mail to interview him (that’s why they are plastered over the photo) He says he’s “constitutionally incapable of not coming forward” but ads, he’d like to retain his privacy. Good luck !! Do you see the resemblance? He looks like JFK with a little Bob Costas thrown in too.
