MOUNTAINS (continued): • The Appalachian Mountains are made up of mountains, ridges and valleys. The Great Smoky Mountains are in this region, and they run from Tennessee to North Carolina. • The Blue Ridge Mountains are the backbone of the Appalachian Mountain system. They extend from Georgia to Pennsylvania. • Mt. Mitchell, in the Appalachians, is the highest mountain on the eastern coast. It is about 6,684 feet high (2,037 meters). • The Andes Mountain range is an uninterrupted chain of highland that is situated along the western coast of South America. It is the longest exposed mountain range in the world and comprises two great ranges: Cordillera Oriental and Cordillera Occidental, which stand divided by a deep intermediate depression. • The Himalayas stretch across six countries: Afghanistan, Bhutan, the People’s Republic of China, India, Nepal and Pakistan. Some of the world’s major rivers, the Indus, the Ganges, the Brahmaputra and the Yangtze, rise in the Himalayas, and their combined drainage basin is home to some 1.3 billion people, including the people of Bangladesh. • The world’s highest peak on land is Mt.

(8,848 meters) tall. When measured from sea-level, Mount Everest is without a doubt the biggest mountain peak on this planet. However, if one were to consider the height of a mountain from its base to its peak, there are few other mountains such as Mt. McKinley and Mauna Kea that are taller than Everest in totality. • Prior to being named Mount Everest, the mountain was commonly referred to as Peak XV. It was formally named Mount Everest Forward feature that allows you to jump to all your favorite Edward or Jacob scenes.

PHOTO: Robert Pattison, Kristen Stewart PICKS OF THE WEEK “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” (PG-13) -- Part three of Stephenie Meyer’s sparkly vampire porn for tweens amps up the love triangle drama between poker-faced Bella (Kristen Stewart), dour vampire Edward (Robert Pattison) and constantly shirtless werewolf with a creepily shaped nose Jacob (Taylor Lautner). When the boys aren’t catfighting over who’s the better asexual freak for Bella, they join forces to battle the evil Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard) and her band of newborn vampires who are hellbent on destroying Bella. So, yes. I’m Team Vicki. The two-disc Special Edition contains audio commentary tracks from Pattison and Stewart, a photo gallery, music videos, a six-part makingof documentary, and a Edward or Jacob Fast-

“Fantasia/Fantasia 2000” (Four-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo) (PG) -- Disney’s 1940 masterpiece combining classical music with animation and its 2000 sequel are finally getting a high-def release, promising the sharpest-ever visuals and sound. The bonus features are few, but noteworthy, particularly the inclusion of the 2003 short film “Destino,” the 50-yearsin-the-making collaboration between Walt Disney and Salvador Dali. “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” (PG) -- It’s no coincidence that Disney re-released “Fantasia” on the same week as the home video release of the “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.” Tenuously based on the most famous segment of the 1940 film featuring Mickey Mouse and the endless procession of animated brooms. In this live-action modern-day fantasy tale, Jay Baruchel takes Mickey’s place as the titular apprentice, “Dave,” who must learn to find the magic

after Col. George Everest who was the Surveyor General of India in the early 1860s. • Mount Everest also has some local names such as Sagarmatha (Nepali) and Chomolungma (Tibetan). • The first people to scale Mount Everest were Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing within himself before an evil sorcerer (Alfred Molina) wreaks havoc upon our world.

Let it Sew! Let it Sew! at Poco Sewing and Vacuum Ltd. Kristine (Kasey) Christensen owner of Poco Sewing and Vacuum Ltd. I have lived in the Coquitlam area for at lease half of my life. Long before that I develolped my passion for sewing and have been sewing, quilting, clothing making and embroidering for over 45 years now. When I was in my teens I became responisible for my own sewing supplies and fabrics, I was so addicted to sewing that I began to make things out of whatever I could find. I can remember making a skirt and vest out of potato chip bags...actually it turned out quite nicely. I also collected Trolls and loved making clothing for them as well as my barbie dolls. I have spent most of my life in the sewing industry working for various sewing machine shops. I was working at The Electric Needle with Lorraine Peck when I got a phone call about a Pfaff/ Miele dealership that was for sale so I talked to my husband, he gave me his saved up truck money and we bought the business. I had worked there before so I knew the business for the most part. Almost 4 years ago now, I started in the shop and have been enjoying every minute of it so far. I have a large regular clientelle with both sewing and embroidery machines as well as with vacu-

Dexter (mascot), Kasey (owner), Trevor (techie) ums. We service both sewing machines and vacuums. Since we believe that honesty and service for customers is of the utmost importance, we often find the problem on sewing machines on the spot and send the customer home with their machine at no cost. I love to take a machine problem and try to sort it out myself! At Poco Sewing and Vacuum you can be assured of great customer service and if you are looking for things, tell us and we will find it for you! We service all makes of Sewing Machines and Vacuums.
