August 18th, 2018 — A freight train on the connecting tracks from Vancouver Harbour to Strathcona passes very close to a house in the 1000 block of East Pender Street. There are now six scheduled trains a day along the spur line that until 2017 had maybe that many in a year. CN said it reactivated the line to improve service to customers. Residents of the area are not happy with the change.

circa 2008 and 2018 — I really don’t like galleries hanging photographs in a frame behind cheap glass. No one can see them with all the reflections so what’s the point.
