I find posting photos here very hard.. any suggestions. I want to browse pics and post but unless I am missing something the tool on here wont allow that? Please help?:confused:
I've been a member here since December 2008, but I wanted to do a formal introduction thread, and also to let you know about some other web-blogging that I do.

My nickname "Flugel Horn"...

Hello and thank you for such a great resource! Nanaimo is what I refer to as my “ancestral homeland.” My great-grandparents emigrated from England to Nanaimo in the late 1800s. My great-grandfathers mostly worked in the mines, although one had run the Occidental Hotel for a short while in the early...
Howdy to the folks that make this happen. Have read many interesting posts and like the vibe here.
Bonjour to all!

Husband works at a job that he travels for months at a time--so wherever we live we will be alone for long periods of time.

Also where we live now --kids...

My husband and I and young son are moving to Nanaimo next summer from the Northwest Territories. I am originally from Vancouver and hubby is from Calgary. It's another huge move, which we are looking forward to, but we are really not familiar with the neighbourhoods in Nanaimo. We...
I am considering a move to Nanaimo from Red Deer and stumbled across this board while looking for information. Really neat to be able to read and get a picture of what the city is like and I'm getting more excited for the move.
hello all, I am happy to have found this forum. My husband and I arre hoping to move to Nanaimo and these forums seem to have a wealth of information. Are there any developments that also have a community garden? We would like to walk as much as we can to shops, library etc, any suggestions....
