Profile Information

In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
Mount Pleasant
Please tell us which areas of Transition interest you. For example: growing more food/urban agriculture, relocalizing our economy/local currency, Permaculture, transit, energy efficient buildings, the arts, urban homesteading, preserving seed diversity, placemaking, potlucks, outreach, organizing events, community-building, having fun while saving the world, or...
I'm interested in potlucks for socialization, plus participating in activities related to transportation, energy and other topics that will help me survive the coming collapse as well as can be expected.
There's a saying that "Transition is not a spectator sport". It's true! Village Vancouver runs on people power, and engaging in activities and projects together helps us accomplish more. Which groups, networks, neighbourhood villages, or projects do you think you might be interested in getting involved with? And what knowledge, skills, resources or other assets can you bring to the mix? (Don't be bashful!)
Anything having to do with medical advice
What would you like to see improved in Vancouver or in your community regarding sustainability or resiliency? Do you have an idea for a new Transition project or activity?

You are a lucky man. Carol has real brights, character, and drive, and lots of stories. We need more women like her in Vancouver.

You missed some great food and an awesome outdoor fire ring last night.

So I guess it's Rick, or do you like to go by Bukko? Either way.

Fact is that I got a kick out of your "name," so I googled it. Welcome to VV security background checks...much more sophisticated than the FBI, let alone CSIS. We've had our fill of real nutbars join this site just to flame or bait people.

Anyway, that's where I picked up a tiny bit of your background, including one NYT blog entry. All great comments, to be sure. Hey, I used to love the Times, and will still peruse the Sunday edition any chance I get. They ate my local paper, the Boston Globe, but of course it got better. Then they began cheerleading for the invasions or Afghanistan and Iraq. I supported the first Gulf War, not that the Kuwaiti's were blameless in their behaviour, but international law was clearer in that case.

I am a libertarian with a social conscience, read literally every major international paper, and, regarding food, am desperately trying to live down my Scottish heritage. More salt on that deep fried Mars bar?

Looking forward to a good chat over some great food.

Welcome, Bukko.

For a Yank via Oz, you've got a great handle. As another refugee from Jesusland, I welcome you to the Land of the Lotus Eaters. Yes, aside from explaining many things here, that's why the coffee sometimes tastes a little off. Try Elysian on Broadway at Ash for probably the best joe in town, even if that means absolutely nothing.

In contrast, the ethnic grub here is excellent, with some holes in the Latin department. Burmese, Filipino, Hunan, Taiwanese, Korean, Viet, and sometimes South Asian can be tops here. Chowhound is the place to get recommendations. The farther east you go in Vancouver, the better the food gets. That's not true for bread, where Transylvania on Broadway near Alma beats all ('cept maybe Bread Affair in Langley or at Terminal Farmer's Market on Weds).

Meanwhile, stop reading the New York Times, and read some real reporting, the Independent. It is the best news written in English. Better yet, get the real story on Vancouver at a Main Street Potluck night in a couple weeks.
