White lights or multi coloured lights?

By | Leah Holiove, News

After decorating three Christmas trees this season it made me realize that most people either decorate their tree with only white lights or multi coloured lights. My own tree has for the most part always been decorated with white lights.

A few weekends ago I helped decorate a friends tree and his lights were multi coloured, and this last weekend I decorated my moms tree and yes hers were multi coloured too! So are you team white lights or team multi coloured lights? Let me know here!

The mathematical formula to a perfectly decorated Christmas tree.

By | Leah Holiove, News

So it turns out that decorating a Christmas tree isn’t necessarily all about taste. Mathematicians have developed a formula for the perfect way to deck your halls and of course it involves math. No wonder I’m decorating my tree wrong.

Okay so they have figured out the correct ratio of ornaments to lights and to tinsel, so are you ready to do some math? Well you can actually go to the their website and plug in the information and it will give you the right ratio for your tree. So don’t panic no math involved just use this handy online calculator.

Santa and screaming kids.

By | Leah Holiove, News

Is it the white beard? Is it the Red suit? Is it his deep voice? Why does Santa have this instant affect on kids that make them scream at the top of their lungs when trying to take a nice Christmas photo? To be honest I have a few pictures of myself sitting on Santa’s lap and I don’t look impressed at all but I never actually cried.

I remember my mom trying to get me to just look at her and not Santa so I would be distracted to the fact that I was sitting on this strange big man’s lap. I guess when you really think about it, it kind of is a bit terrifying right? You don’t know him and he has this huge white beard and he’s asking you what you want.

However once I realized he was going to bring me gifts on Christmas morning we came to an understanding and we took the picture and I went on my way. He did usually bring me what I asked for most of the time so I ended up being cool with him over the years. Post your screaming Santa pictures here.

Which Christmas tree matches your decorating style?

By | Leah Holiove, News

I am pretty organized when I decorate my Christmas tree, it’s all about balance. Everything must match and there can’t be any open spots and the ornaments have to match or flow with a theme. I think it might be my OCD but I don’t feel okay unless it is exactly how I like it.

So looking at these selections I’m more of #6 without the ribbon. Which tree best fits your decorating style? Let me know here!

Should Social Media be taught in schools?

By | Leah Holiove, News

I think there can be an argument for both yes and no to this question. I know there will be people who will think teaching kids how to access social media will then make them want to use it even if they didn’t want to before. However I don’t know any kids that aren’t on some form of social media even at the age of 5. It’s just the way the world is now.

The more knowledge the better in any situation that’s the way I look at things. It is always good to be informed about everything and teaching kids would at least arm them with the best knowledge on how to utilize and use social media properly.

I think alot of kids that grew up with social media while in school could have used a class on it and I’m sure they would say the same. So what do you think? Do you think it should be taught in school? If so at what age do you start teaching it? Let me know your thoughts here.

Date Did What??? December 5th

By | Leah Holiove, News

Both of my guests tonight are plant based…buuut not entirely in the same way.

My first guest is from the Coast Salish territory, and is a Native Hip-Hop MC Rapper
with Status Krew – Patrick J Kelly aka “Hope”

Hope wasn’t always known by that name. Growing up on the Reserve, his world was a whole lot of negative and he was named Hopeless. After seeing the destructive paths those around him were choosing, he decided to change. And with that change, came a change in name, to Hope. He embraces his Indigenous roots and chooses music to be his creative outlet and brings his rhymes to the beats. Hope won a Fraser Valley Music Award this year for Hip Hop and is looking to take his music world wide.

A plant based, sober bartender…
You may think that this dude don’t got swagger, but he brings it, in between his yoga mantras and his wilderness treks that is. Jeff Oddleifson is taking his life in a whole nother direction from his bartending days. He’s been around so much meat and booze, that his meat sweats came with alcohol sweats, until he found a love for all things plant based. With his entrepreneurial spirit and new found green zest for life, Jeff’s opening up a plant based food truck in 2018. Well, being in Vancouver, he’s def in the right postal code for this to fly!

You’re gonna want to tune in! Listen LIVE tonight at 7pm 107.7 FM and livestream www.pulsefm.ca

If you wanna be a part of the convo, pick up the phone and call 778-574-1077 so we can chat!

Talk to you at 7!

When do you start Christmas shopping?

By | Leah Holiove, News

I like to start my shopping early for Christmas but every year I end finishing a couple days before Christmas no matter how well I plan! I swear this happens every year. I used to think starting in the summer was a great idea until I realized I end spending more money because I’m buying all year round so I’m constantly buying more stuff.

This year I started before December in hopes that I will be done within the first week of Christmas. Yep you guessed it, I have three more days till we’re a week into December and I’m not even close. So when do you start Christmas shopping? Let me know here.

Where do you hide your Christmas presents?

By | Leah Holiove, News

Growing up I’ll admit it, I used to search our house from top to bottom looking for my Christmas presents. Sometimes I did actually find them, and then of course I would feel bad because then I knew what I was getting.  However it never did stop me from searching every year, don’t tell my mom! My parents weren’t the best at hiding presents but they tried.

I used to hide presents in the trunk of my car and according to a survey that is the most popular place. Probably not the best place since you are literally driving around with alot of cash in your car and parking it wherever you go.

So now I buy presents and wrap them right away so I don’t even need to hide them! Where do you hide your presents? Let me know here!

Now your cats and dogs can toast the holidays with you!

By | Leah Holiove, News

A company named Aldi is launching a line of non-alcoholic drinks for cats and dogs.

The beer for dogs is called “Bottom Sniffer.” ( Nice name!) It contains some harmless, unfermented ingredients like barley malt, water, dandelion, nettle, flax and of course, chicken flavouring.

For cats…something a little more sophisticated……Pawsecco! It has similar ingredients to the beer for dogs. It comes in both rosé and white. What are your thoughts? Let me know here.

 

You in?
