I didn't know unicorns came in pairs. Thanks for the incredibly hot Saturday night. We’re still all spiced up from it. Keep being authentic, and come back and play soon. ; — Compass & Rose

Love is alive in Halifax! My car battery died at the casino. One guy stopped with his girlfriend, but couldn't get it going and my cables fried. Another guy also came over to help, but no luck. I headed to the casino's front desk to call a tow truck, and the female employee suggested asking a cab driver. Sure enough, one very friendly driver in car #091 came to the rescue without any thought at all. I offered him money and he said no, but I insisted. You guys make this city such a great place to live.

Oh, and I wasn't supposed to be at the casino so you saved my neck also. Thank you, and a very Merry Christmas.

Thank you to the amazing cab driver, bar patrons and staff, and anyone else who saw my brother on his big night in downtown Halifax. He was visiting from TO and had too much to drink while out partying with his friends. Shout-out to the amazing night owls out there who may have met him along the way and helped him to get home safely.

Just wanted to give a shoutout to Tim and Crystal from the Downtown Dartmouth Business Commission. The other day, they were walking up to the guy who sells his poems on the corner of Portland and Wentworth Streets. Instead of being like some business people and asking him to move along or ignoring him altogether, Crystal went right up to him and said, "What have you got for me today?" He replied back that he was pretty sure she had already read the poem he was selling. But she and Tim stayed and chatted, and were just so kind and compassionate. It's really great to see how much love and positivity they add to the neighbourhood!

On a recent Sunday, a man's car ran out of gas in front of Lake Banook. He tried to flag down help to no avail. However a young male runner did stop to help, and with the assistance of another man they pushed the vehicle to a nearby gas station. Kindness abounds and kudos to them!

Thank you to the person who picked up my bank card as I zipped out of the Main Street gas station off to Martinique Beach on Wednesday. After basking in the sun and floating in the waves, I went to buy a bottle of craft beer and discovered my bank card missing (thank you credit card for funding the beer on the deck). Usually my card is tucked somewhere and I discover it a few hours later, but this time I was baffled because I knew I had to take it out of the gas pump in order to start pumping gas. I almost didn't bother returning to the gas station but I am glad I did! The clerk was excited because she said she never gets to return lost cards and I jumped up and down for joy (literally). I don't know which of us was happier. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I would love it if you found my bike bag on September 5, and will return it for a reward of $200. Please help me get my life back if you picked it up off the road.

Major kudos and a big shout-out to the guys who handle lost and found at the Halifax Transit Bridge Terminal. Last Wednesday, I lost my wallet on one bus going to the Bridge Terminal from Dartmouth, and my cell phone on the bus going across the bridge to Halifax. I got the number for lost and found at Halifax Transit, so I called them and I spoke with Dale; we had a great rapport and the customer service experience was great! The bus drivers had all told me that lost and found opened at 8am. bit Dale explained that they didn't get the things back from buses until noon, so it was not a good idea to call before that. Makes sense to me.

I left a voicemail message with Dale yesterday, and today when we talked he asked me about my phone and asked me to describe it to him. I told him the brand name only appeared near the speaker. He asked if I could wait a while, as he had to have a look in his inventory again.

Lo and behold, my wallet, with all the money I had, $25, and a lottery ticket AND my phone were at the lost and found! Freaking A+++ for customer service, guys, and for getting these things back to me. It took a week for my cell and wallet to be located and brought back: who cares how long it took! I got them back!

So people, when you lose your stuff and it might be on the bus, don't panic. These guys are super-busy! I just explained the process. Let them do their job and locate the stuff and stop calling every day to find out if your things are there. It must be super-stressful working there. So I didn't have my cell phone for a week; the world didn't end and I didn't die because I couldn't access the internet. It was actually nice to be flying blind and almost incommunicado for six or seven days. Lol! Thanks to everyone who had anything to do with it at Halifax Transit!!! Aaron and Dale, you guys rock!

Remember the platforms you have,
Raise your voices,
And do what you do best.
Keep on continuing your wonderful work within the community.
You don't just make a difference,
You are the difference.
Some people just need to pay attention more closely and listen because you are the change that the city's council, provincial and federal government needs. They need to take a leaf from your book.

I just wanted to thank all of the wonderful people who stopped to help me after I flipped over the handlebars of my motorbike driving down the Bedford Highway earlier this week. A huge thank-you to the off-duty firefighter and two nurses who stopped to help, to the guy who called 911, to the guy who used his shirt to shield me from the blistering sun and the woman who lent me her sunglasses. If I am forgetting to thank others who had stopped, I apologize but it is still all a blur. None of you needed to do what you did, but I am very thankful and grateful that there are people like you out there.
