CedarCottage

Toby's on Commercial, the nearest & most convenient spirit distributor in my neighbourhood has recently become my usual local big-screen/off-sales/watering-hole (after I won the Guinness leather jacket in the St. Paddy's Day raffle). Unfortunately while suffering through recent roasting heat I was redundantly, sadly distraught that they too had also experienced a major power outage.
What to do/where to go in this crazy sweltering heatwave...?
Drying up on the Drive, parched & dehydrated, I luckily stumbled upon an as-of-yet undiscovered oasis tucked in jaround the corner just off of Kingsway near Clark.
I felt like an awe-struck, Greteless, slack-jawed Hansel, dumb-founded at the Gingerbreadhouse-like vision of the CedarCottageCoffee-shop/bar/liquor-store.
Revival from perishing summer-stroke heat relief had finally arrived!
Entering into the icy-cold pearly-gated glass door of the fully-stocked beer cooler hit me like sudden death in an instant chilling face-wash.
No witches- only the angels behind the till with sun-lit halos-
they said there would be a $5.00 cover charge if I stayed in the wonderful walk-in ice palace for another 5 minutes longer...
Died & gone to Heaven...!

The Eagle has landed-Apollo11

I remember watching Walter Cronkite live on CBS in the elementary school auditorium and then running home to follow the finale @ home with my family. Far be it from me to be a conspiracy theorist, and yet there are still so many blackholes....
JFK & his brother barely deflected the Cuban missile crisis & promised a rocket lunar landing in the Sea of Tranquility rather than the Bay of Pigs before the end of the decade.
An Oliver Stone/Michael Moore style film "Capricorn One" (not to be confused with Henry Miller's must-read/see "Tropic of Capricorn" ) fictitionally debunked the landing.
But now it seems NASA has scuttled all moon exploration & says it has lost the original lunar footage- kinda' like Gordo Campbell's deleted e-mails on the BC Rail Affair.
Hmmm....What up w/ that...?
Fly me to the moon-
One of these days , Alice...

Zizou is a class act. He waived his paycheque, overcame physical, professional, & personal injuries and electrified the chilling fans tonight in Burnaby's Swangard Stadium-all for charity...
