Good morning :
Yum Yum. This will make a great dinner – short ribs – for the weekend. Most of the ingredients you likely have already.
Can you say hilarious.
Some people are super creative when it comes to explaining things. But, this one takes the cake. A woman was charged by police with possessing cocaine and this is what she told police on how it happened.
Sounds to be good to be true – but true it is. A retailer spends $30,000 on his employees and sales increase by millions of dollars.
HAVE A FABULOUS WEEKEND.

TRANS MOUNTAIN PIPELINE PROJECT IN CRISIS MODE
The prime minister is cutting a trip to Peru short in an in an attempt to resolve the stalemate over the $7.4 billion Trans Mountain oil pipeline project.
Trudeau was skedded for a 10-day trip to Peru, France and Britain. But now he will return to Canada after the Summit of the Americas in Peru. The Trans Mountain project is in serious trouble and the company has given the three parties to the agreement, Alberta, British Columbia and Ottawa until May 31 to reach a deal.
WHAT IT MEANS
In the meantime, federal finance minister Bill Morneau has pledged that the deadline will be met.
And given that scenario it means Trudeau will be playing hardball with B.C. premier John Horgan, who is stalling the project through court battles, and Alberta premier Rachel Notley, who wants the project to go ahead and has threatened B.C. with a variety of punitive economic measures.
The delay is causing great concerns in Canada’s corporate boardrooms.
Every Monday and Thursday George Froehlich brings you interesting, unique and fascinating people that share their stories and perspectives.
LUKE MARSTON – YOUNG MAJOR COAST SALISH ARTIST ON THE PATH TO INTERNATIONAL RECOGNITION , HIS STRIKING, PHENOMENAL AND EXQUISITE WORKS ARE ROOTED IN THE TRADITION AND HISTORY OF HIS PEOPLE, HIS ARTIST PATH STARTED AT AGE 12 AND AT AGE 18 HE HAD SOME OF THE MOST RENOWNED NORTHWEST COAST CARVERS TEACH HIM THE ART OF CARVING
Luke Marston’s journey as an artist is deeply rooted in his family.
And today at age 41 he already is receiving recognition for his works that other major carvers only achieved at a much older age.
He was born on Vancouver Island to carvers Jane and David Marston. He worked first with Coast Salish Master Carver Simon Charlie, followed by five years at the Royal British Columbia Museum’s Thunderbird Park. For over a decade, he has exhibited at Alcheringa Gallery (Victoria) and the Inuit Gallery (Vancouver). He’s also exhibited in the United States and
Japan, and has received commissions from the Canadian Government, the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia and the Nanaimo Airport.
In 2010, Luke was commissioned to complete a Healing Bentwood Box for the National Truth and Reconciliation Commission. This large cedar chest now travels throughout Canada as a symbol of healing for First Nation peoples across the country.
Luke Marston graciously accepted the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Award in 2012 in recognition of his contribution to the arts.
In the Spring of 2015, Luke Marston unveiled five years of hard work and determination in his feature piece at Brochton Point in Stanley Park,Vancouver, BC. This international project was inspired by Luke’s Coast Salish and Porteguese ancestors and is a 17 foot bronzed sculpture integrating traditional Coast Salish carving casted in bronze and surrounded in a mosaic created of stone from Portugal. This sculpture is known as Shore to Shore and more detailed information can be found at www.shoretoshore.ca.
In this edition of Cool Conversations Luke talked to George Froehlich about:
How art is a way of life for him. Often, even at the breakfast table, he thinks about a new project and what he can do with it.
He has been around art all of his life – it started when he age 12 and he began making model canoes and canes.
Why his art is deeply rooted in Coast Salish history.
Why Northwest Coast art has the potential to become the number one art form in the world.
What inspires him.
The success that many Northwest Coast artists are having is rubbing off on the younger generation.
Why he loves teaching art to young children,
How his young daughters began carving at age 5.
Making money from his art is not his driving factor.
What is the key to his success.
