Yesterday in Gastown, sort of the original site of Vancouver, now basically little shops aimed
mostly at tourists, lofts for artists, expensive restaurants and even more expensive refurbished
condos above it all.
Dragonites:I live in a little seaside town called Torquay. The locals are a bit close-minded and dickish, but it's a nice place. It's just a shame that there's shit-all to do but DDR.
Isn't that where Mr Fawlty was based?
Sure was. From what I remember, Fawlty Towers was based on the Grosvner Hotel. That hotel had a Banksy graffiti on it recently! Then some little shit threw paint-stripped behind the perspex plate and now it's ruined. :I
Yes I posted this separately in it's own thread but it's going to be buried fast there, so
I'm taking the liberty of putting in this thread as it qualifies, so there. Here's the
jockeys for the Sept 2011 BC Derby at Hastings Race Course in Vancouver. Proud to say I
took photo, and that's 2012 Kentucky Derby winning jockey Mario Gutierrez 10th from left
with the red and white blocks and clapping his hands as he LOOKS AT ME! ha ha. He was only
known to his friends, family and us loyal fans at Hastings when I took this shot, now he
goes down in history for riding the winner in the world's most famous horse race.
