Beefs and Bouquets for Sept. 23

BOUQUET: We want to thank the Sabhai Thai Langford team for their consistent excellence in all aspects of the service they provide. We have been so impressed with how they have coped with the challenges throughout the pandemic and have been very happy to support their efforts. We are always greeted cheerfully on the phone when placing our order and in person when we pick up our food –which is consistently excellent! We are never disappointed. A special shout out and thank you to Sam who always remembers our favourite order of chicken cashew (med/hot) with rice. She is a gem and we so appreciate her warm, welcoming and generous spirit. Thanks Sam, you recently made a birthday meal even more special with your very kind thoughtfulness.

OPINION: The more things change, the more they stay the same

There's a climactic scene at the end of the first act of Jurassic Park — the 1993 Spielberg classic — where the Tyrannosaurus Rex attacks a stranded Jeep with two kids, Tim and Lex, trapped inside. The T-Rex tosses the Jeep over an embankment and into the jungle canopy. Tim, still trapped inside, climbs out with the help of Dr. Alan Grant, but as the two descend to the base of the tree, the weight of the jeep begins to snap the branches holding it in place, and it starts falling towards the ground. As Tim and Grant get to the bottom, the Jeep collapses on top of them, but they survive thanks to some Hollywood movie magic.
