I am fascinated by construction in general and the heavy metal equipment (such as concrete trucks) that is used. And there's plenty of equipment like this floating around Gastown thanks to the ongoing renovation of the parkade.
I first heard about the Vancouver based Banana Guard through Seth Godin's Banana Guard blog post. It's great, I want one. Perhaps it's time to make the trek to Vancouver's Market Kitchen (604-681-7399) at 1666 Johnston Street on Granville Island to buy one! $4.99 for an excellent gift and conversation piece like this is a bargain!

The destruction continues. Part 4 of my series of time lapse photos of this new condo going up.
This is news I first saw reported on a weblog: Tom Benjamin says he's suprised to see Brian Burke get fired by owner John McCaw, and Eric at Off Wing Opinion is suprised too. Tom says it looks like a business decision, not a hockey decision:
Stanley McCammon fired Pat Quinn, hired Mike Keenan and was at loggerheads with Brian Burke from his very first day. I'm not very comfortable with his review or its outcome. I'm never comfortable when a non-hockey person makes a stupid decision about a hockey team.Brian Burke Canned
Eric says another hockey team stands to benefit:
Burke did a great job reconstructing the Canucks and turning them into one of the top flight teams in the West. Now it looks like he'll have that opportunity again someplace else.Burke Out In Vancouver
I wanted to point out that we've had our first external image addition. Check out Arash Eftekhari's personal image gallery (you can check out his local user profile). He's got a great picture of some West End buildings on a foggy Vancouver day.
Every member account on Urban Vancouver can upload as many as 25 images of up to a couple of megabytes in size. By default, they show up in your personal image gallery, which is accessible from your user profile.
I've also added Arash's blog to the local feeds. Arash immigrated to Canada in June of last year -- hope to see more from you here on Urban Vancouver, Arash!
A swing and a miss on May 2, another beautiful (thankfully not sweltering) Vancouver day.
A fine thing to watch or play on this hot muggy May 1st in Vancouver.
