Hundreds of years after the romantics of the Middle Ages, lovers, couples and spouses express their tenderness for each other on February 14 by giving conventional gifts of flowers, chocolate and handwritten cards and letters. Is this trend on its way out? Do people want to celebrate the traditional Valentines Day in a non-traditional manner? We asked the people of Campbell River what they want out of Valentines Day 2014, and it appears those classic heart-felt customs are no longer quite what locals are looking for from their sweethearts.

Traditio Valentine NOT

Although we received many romantic and unusual responses to our question, one generous Campbell River woman told us that her ideal way to spend Valentines Day would be to donate blood with her paramour. A true romantic! (Or maybe she just loves to hear him scream!)

raditional lentines or NOT !

If you are scared of blood, but not commitment, one woman expressed her desire to receive a homemade, sentimental gift which shows love, thought and effort. From her beau she wants no flowers, no expensive dinner, and no hot date night, but a deck of cards expressing only 52 reasons why he loves her. If he plays (and prepares) those cards right, he won’t have to compliment her for a full year – she can simply pull a card each week for the next 12 months! Other Campbell River locals will be saving their cash this year in favour of atypical and creative dates – their heart’s desires included creating a breakfast of eggs cracked and cooked into heart-shaped toast cutouts; a family walk along the beach (with the kids) searching for heart shaped rocks; a night alone playing pool with the wife, laughing at each other; making heartshaped homemade pizzas together, or running a hot bath, with a beer, for him, then throwing the dog in for a wash too!

WhatsOn

health Essential Oils for Well-Being Aromatherapy is a gentle and yet powerful healing art that uses therapeutic grade, pure essential oils in a variety of applications that can positively affect our well-being. Essential oils, the “immune system” of plants, are liquids that are derived from the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, and roots of a plant. They contain the true essence of the plant it was derived from, and are highly concentrated only very small amounts are needed and, depending on the oil used, often as little as two or three drops suffice.

Essential oils are not the same as perfume or fragrance oils! Essential oils are derived from the true plants, as opposed to perfume oils that are artificially created fragrances or contain artificial substances and do not offer the therapeutic benefits that essential oils offer. Essential oils can be helpful to ease ailments such as colds and flu, headaches, insomnia, tension and stress, muscular aches... etc.... To your Well-Being! Gabriela Eikeland, DN, CSMC, RT-CRA

homes

Buying your first home? February isn’t just about Family Day & Valentine’s Day. On the west coast, this is usually when we start to see the first signs of spring as well. Daffodils, sunshine, and young couples starting to plan a life together. This can also include the purchase of their first home together. With affordable home prices and low interest rates, many people are finding that they can purchase a home for similar cost as renting. But the process of buying a home can be very overwhelming for first time homebuyers. There are Realtors, Banks & Mortgage Brokers, Notaries & Lawyers, Building Inspectors, Insurance Agents, Builders, City Officials and more, all that need to be working together to make your first home purchase smooth and successful. But where do you start, and how much is this all going to cost? Make your first call to your Real Estate Agent. There is no cost to meet with your Realtor, and we will set your purchase plan in place and bring all of the other pieces

together so you don’t miss a thing. Your second call (also a free call) will be to your Bank or Mortgage Broker to determine how much you can afford for your home purchase. Your Realtor will explain the difference between Banks & Brokers & will help you choose the best option for your situation. Once we know your price limit, we will help you choose what kind of home to choose. Do you need a house, or will a condo work better? Maybe a brand new patio home? Or are you more of a fixer-upper person? One Real Estate Agent will take you on a personal home tour, guide you, represent you, help you negotiate the best price and assist you in the whole process, all for free!! So, if you’re even considering buying a home this spring, call or text Don Corder today at (250) 202-1407, and he will get you started on the right track. His knowledge of the local Real Estate Market and experience working with hundreds of buyers are your key to Turning a House into Your First Home!

Pet Tips Problem with Overweight Dogs According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention (APOP), 54% of the nation’s dogs and cats are overweight. Ernie Ward, DVM and founder of APOP is not happy about it. “We often try to compare what’s happening with our pets to the childhood obesity epidemic, since it’s a similar pattern that emerges,” said Dr. Ward. “The biggest problem is that by the time most people recognize the problem, it’s often too late.” So why is it that having an obese dog is such a problem? Dr. Ward broke it down. The Two Main Problems with Overweight Dogs There are really two factors to keep in mind when you consider the issues associated with overweight and obese dogs, says Dr. Ward: health and money. The first, health, should come as no surprise to those who are aware of all the health issues that overweight people have to deal with. “It’s not only the fact that obese dogs face

of the life they’re leading in the first place,” says the doctor. A few of the major health issues that obese dogs and cats have to deal with include osteoarthritis, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart and respiratory disease, kidney disease, cancer and more. “The real heartbreaker for me as a vet, though, is that these pets have such a diminished quality of life,”Dr. Ward said. “I see the consequences, and I wish for those pets that I could roll back the tape to five years ago and say ‘let’s change a few minor things here and there and we could have avoided all of this.’ It’s

DISC with hand caree their to h prod by em

avoidable, not inevitable.” Besides the health factors, Dr. Ward is also astounded by the amount of money that is spent when it comes to treating obese pets. He estimates that obese animals are costing owners tens, if not hundreds, of millions of dollars in unnecessary medical bills each year. “From an economic perspective this is huge,” he said. In fact, according to Dr. Ward a lot of the vet care expenses associated with weight issues would go away if we would all start making smarter and better food choices for our pets. You heard that right; better pet food choices can help save you money!

A Cajun named Jean Paul moved to Texas and bought a donkey from an old farmer for $100. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day. The next day the farmer drove up and said, “Sorry, but I got some bad news. The donkey died.” “Well then, just give me my money back.” “I can’t do that. I went and spent it already.” “OK then, just unload the donkey.” “What ya gonna do with em.” “I’m gonna raffle him off.” “Ya can’t raffle off a dead donkey!” “Sure I can. Watch me. I just won’t tell anyone he’s dead.” A month later the farmer met up with the Cajun and asked, “What happened with the dead donkey?” “I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at $2 apiece and made a profit of $898.” “Didn’t anyone complain?” “Just the guy who won. So I gave him his $2 back.” WhatsOnDigest
