The Overpasses Of Surrey (BC)

As a resident of Surrey, I am little flustered by all the negativity highlighted by news broadcasters for the last little while. Yes I know, there is a whole lot of gang and drug related crap going on, as well as just random acts of violence. To give you an idea, from December 24, 2011 to February 5, 2012 (31 days), there have been 8 shootings, 4 of which were fatalities. I'm frustrated because all I hear from people is, Surrey is bad this and Surrey is bad that. Do I need to remind you that this sort of stuff goes on in other cities all the time? Cities like Vancouver, but the thing is that Vancouver is old news.


Even though bad stuff happens in Surrey, good stuff happens too. I would like to start off by giving kudos to our Mayor, Dianne Watts. In the four years I have lived here, I have seen a lot of positive change and I hope with the support of the community, Dianne get to continue achieving her goals for years to come. One of her goals is to link the city without the use of roadways. Last year, Dianne, with help from her team, developed and constructed two cycling and pedestrian overpasses in Surrey. They are not just functional but beautiful too.


The Pioneer Overpass connects the Pioneer Greenway on 148 Street/Winter Crescent through a neigbhourhood park on the west side of Hwy 99 to 35 Avenue on the east side.


The Tynehead Cycling and Pedestrian Overpass connects Tynehead Regional Park with Fraser Heights crossing over Hwy 1 to 168 street. It connects to the Tynehead Greenway and in the future will connect to the Barnston Greenway.

Longboarding With Team Original

Love this video, makes longboarding look like so much fun. Do they rent longboards? Are there areas to longboard here in BC? Gonna have to find out and finally give this sport a try. Until then I'll have to keep watching this video... Via - LikeCool By: Mass

Blogger Has Died

Dear friends, fans, and followers. For the past few months my blog has been overrun with errors, making changes very difficult (if not impossible). On numerous occasions I've attempted to reset my blogger template, install a new templates, and even restore from an older version but I'm still unable to add or remove specific content from my blogs template. The initial problematic area was the blog post section which refuses to accept any changes or alterations to the date, author, title or social media links. I have suffered through this problem, but as of late it appears that the layout is now no longer accepting changes, and when displayed is no longer centered. If anyone has suggestions on how to fix these blogger issues, please email me. As a result, I will no longer be updating, as its too difficult maintain this blog.

Duct Tape...It's Not Just For MacGyver Anymore

I came across this crazy site the other day called Duct Tape Fashion , which specializes in duct tape. Wait... I don't think I explained myself properly, there's a website dedicated to duct tape, and all things duct tape related. Ok, so maybe I did explain myself properly, WTF...really, duct tape. Well it seems duct tape isn't just for HVAC specialists and MacGyver anymore, it seems people are using duct tape to create all kinda of weird items like wallets, baseball caps, hats, bags, bracelets, purses, visors, and roses. Don't believe me, well check out some of these pics I got... Wallets Baseball Cap Hats Bags Bracelets Purses Visors Roses By: Mass
