Hi Mary! thanks for your comment! i think since one month ago we are neighbours! my partner and me are in trafalgar and 3rd. I would like to meet with you for a coffee and talk further about ecoart projects and the neighbourhood! Currently, anytime for me during the morning works wonderful, i hope to see you soon...

Hi Mary, thanks for asking. Will you be going to any of the potlucks? I would like to hear how your time off work is pleasing you and what kind of art you are currently involved with. I would also like to ask if you wish to purchase a Hope In Shadows calendar from me again this year. It would be best if we met at an event that we are both attending, but I can deliver!

Yep, that's me! Great to meet you in person last night.

Oh shoot, I will not be able to make it on the 29th after all! "Need" to go to Pender Island for the long weekend with my children and we'll leave that night -- tough life, I know! Still, I am very keen to attend some "Green Cleaning" husband and I run an eco-store on W Broadway (Gecko Green Living) so I love to get new ideas and "spread the word".
Have a great evening!

Hi, Mary. Thanks for the message and the invite to come to the pot-luck! Sounds good, I will just need to see how my week shapes up.
Your name is familiar to me too...not sure how we know each other, through community grants perhaps? We'll figure it out. :)

Hi, Mary. :-) Thanks so much for following up. I ended up having out of town guests for those few days so had to cancel a few things. Looking forward to future events such as that one. Thanks again!
Karen :-)

It was great to meet you too, Mary! I'm glad I got to go to one of the potlucks. :-) I'm looking forward to many more wonderful community gatherings. :-)

Hi Mary,
Thanks so much, it would be fantastic!
We can come and get them as soon as you want.

Hi Mary,

I hope to be there. However, I also am invited to a brunch that day. I'll see how the day plays itself out.

Hi Mary,

It was delightful to talk with you at the Village Vancouver potluck. Looking forward to seeing you again :)

Thanks Mary. Let's connect in August than.

Hi Mary,

I can definitely share some more kefir with you. If you're not using them I think that they can be chilled in the fridge (for up to a month at least) or frozen or dried (although, I've never personally tried either of these two options).

Unfortunately I've been out of town for the last 5 weeks, so my kefir have been dormant and need to be revived. I wish I could bring something to Car Free Day in Kits, but I just don't have anything right now. I'll let you know when there are some grains to share though!

Hi Mary,

You might also want to post the 5th Ave micro-village announcement as a new discussion or comment, so more Kits Villagers are aware of it.


At 6:24pm on May 2, 2012, Cabot Lyford said…

Mary, I hope this comment gets to you. We haven't talked yet about closing the circle, although this might happen soon. As I learn about how this process works, I am certain that I will want to start another circle for those who are interested. You are welcome to come tonight (May 2). Email me directly for up to date info: cabot at telus dot net.

I don't see a post for tonight's event. Actual response is on the April 11th event post.

Hi Mary,

Cabot posted a comment for you regarding the next RL meeting (tonight), but wasn't sure if you'd see it. I let him know that he could also post it here and you'd get it. (But know you know and can check it out on the event post!)

Hi Mary,
