Curry Squash Soup

Amazing curry squash soup.

Curry Squash Soup



3 pounds of butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cubed
10 cups of liquid
1 medium onion, diced
2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
!/2 teaspoon tumeric
1 cup coconut milk

1. Peel, seed, and cube your squash. Make sure cubes are the same size so that they cook evenly. Add squash to your liquid. Cover and bring to a boil. You can use any type of squash. I usually use butternut squash.


Natural Gas Warning

Make sure you and your loved ones are protected from natural gas poisoning.

I originally posted this article as a personal post. But with my recovery from natural gas poisoning being slow and unpleasant, I really want as many people as possible to be aware of the risk they are living with. So I made the decision to place my post on this platform as well.

What if you could save up to 30% on your printing costs today!


As a small business owner, I am always looking for ways to reduce my overhead costs, without lowering the quality of service that I provide to my customers. And, if I can do that on a local level? Well that is just a win win!

A few weeks ago, my laser printer began to give me warnings that I was running low. Great! It's a blizzard out there! The last thing I wanted to do was run to my local office supply store hoping they have my ink cartridge in stock.


Painters Lodge Has Been Sold

Painters Lodge and April Point Lodge have been sold.


It was a shock to receive notice yesterday from the Oak Bay Marine Group that the iconic Painters Lodge and April Point Lodge have been sold.

It has been expected that OBMG would be divesting itself of some holdings after the passing of owner and philanthropist, Bob Wright. The Times Colonist had even reported the properties were for sale back in February. But I still found it startling and sad that an integral part of his vision is no longer part of OBMG.
