Argentina Ants Hit Vancouver Island - They Don't Bite - They Swarm - By The Billions and Billions, Even Trillions




These ants are not the casual ant crawling across the kitchen counter, they are Argentina Ants the most invasive of the ant species and they don't work alone, they swarm. Not by just two or three but by the billions and billions...


It's not that bad yet on the Island, since discovered in Victoria in 2009 but swarms as thick as your arm and as long as 1000 kilometers have been recorded in Brazil and Argentina containing billions and billions of ants even trillions. That's a long line, you wouldn't want to be in it's path.




There has been one colony discovered in Southern California covering an area from San Francisco to San Diego, containing trillions. Your kitchen would be covered wall to wall with the little critters if they decided to travel your way, and you wouldn't be able to stop them. They'd keep coming and coming and coming.


This invasive species of creepy crawlers, is blamed on climate change and is #48 on the invasive list and has finally made it to Vancouver Island.

Left Handed People - What A Strange Lot



Did you know that about 15% of all living people on earth are left handed and women are more likely to be right-handed than men? Or, that women over 40 years of age are more than likely to produce left-handed babies,128% more?

Also that being a lefty was considered a trait for the creative and musically inclined...

The Strange Looking Arbutus Tree - Native to the Island - Scary Looking at Night - Beautiful During the Day

An 'AfterLife' Or 'Eternal Oblivion' - Is It Just A Concept Or Is It Reality?





No one has ever been to the 'AfterLife' and come back to tell us what it was like. That's not one soul! Of course, there's been the occasional person that has had a near-death-experience but is that really going to the 'AfterLife' and returning, meaning letting go of that silver cord completely and drifting away then returning?

People that have had near-death-experiences never are untethered from this silver cord keeping them within reach until that person actually dies, then what happens? What happens when that life-line is broken and he is set free, and his body becomes stone cold dead? 

We might go into eternal oblivion upon death? Another concept where ones world collapses into utter nothingness.

So, it begs the question; is the 'AfterLife' just a concept or is it reality? Since no-one has lived to tell about it and has actually been there, the choice should be obvious. I'll take an 'Afterlife' even though I haven't a religious bone in my body.

I just don't want to believe that my life will come to an eternal end and that no one will ever see this face again. I'll take the high road, and go with an 'Afterlife.'

I'm just guessing of course.

Two Skulls dubbed the 'Babes in the Woods' Back in 53' Will Remain Unidentified




Over the years there have been many skulls found in Stanley Park. That's in Vancouver, British Columbia, part of the West End.  I remember hearing the story of a person who while walking on a path in the park, found a skull and brought it home to his apartment in the West End and displayed it on his living room mantle for years. No one had ever questioned him about it. No one thought it unusual at the time to have a human skull on their mantel. Dah!...

Beban House - Said To Be The Most Haunted House On The Island





It's that old rubber ball routine again. Something we are all familiar with, written into many a Hollywood horror ghost script, where a bouncing ball bounces down a staircase or rolls across the floor pushed by an invisible ghostly child. The ball is usually red and pops out seemingly from nowhere and stops in the centre of the room. Most horror flicks use this technique to grab people's attention...

Two of the Most Sweetest Ghosts You'd Ever Want to Meet Canada's First Chocolatier, Charles 'Candy' Rogers and His Wife Leah




Two ghosts you wouldn't be afraid of, Charles 'Candy' Rogers and his wife Leah. Their shop is located on Government Street here in Victoria on the Island.  It's a National Historic Site, being one of Canada's oldest and most haunted chocolate shops in North America, Rogers Chocolates.



Chuck was said to have come out from Massachusetts way back in 1885 and set up shop in Victoria, here on the Island selling dry goods. As a side line he sold chocolate that he imported from San Francisco. That's when he met Leah and got married. She couldn't resist him it was said because he was so sweet.

The chocolate was a run away success. So, being the business man that Chuck was, he started making his own chocolate to sell. He became Canada's first chocolatier. Business couldn't have gotten any better.

Since they were so dedicated to the business, working twenty hour days, they often stayed in the kitchen sleeping on the floor. So dedicated that even after death their ghosts have been seen working away in the kitchen, Charles whipping up and stirring batches of chocolates while Leah would be seen handing them out to children. (I imagine ghosts also)

Children's chocolate finger prints have been discovered occasionally on mirrors above doorways, way too high for a child to reach.

Two of the most sweetest ghosts you'd ever want to meet, Charles 'Candy' Rogers and his wife Leah, in downtown Victoria, at Roger's Chocolate's on Government Street.













The Haunted 'River View' Psychiatric Hospital





The 'Riverview Psychiatric Hospital' in Coquitlam, British Columbia. A once over-crowded asylum, the dilapidated West Lawn Pavillion, closed since 1983, was a place where male patients entered and rarely if ever came back out.  The stories that it could tell, if it could.

The hospital opened its doors in 1913, to 300 of British Columbia's most insane and most dangerous men, to ease the growing number of mental patients hospitalized in New Westminister.  The female counterpart opened its doors in 1930 to BC's most disturbed women.  Conditions in both soon deteriorated. 

It's said to be haunted today, because of all the barbaric treatments and surgeries that were carried out on the inmates.  I say inmates because basically that's what it was in its heyday, a prison and that's how mental patients were treated in those days, as prisoners not as patients, compared with how mental health is treated today, you wouldn't want to go there.   Only on a ghost tour. 





I hear, that there's plans in the making for a fancy condo complex to be built on the site.  Then I hear they want to re-open it as a psychiatric hospital.  I wonder if the ghosts will stick around?
