Echo Dot (3rd Gen) Ceiling Mount

  Alexa, play my playlist... My goal has been to have music easily accessible while hanging out on my front patio. I'm aware of all kinds of stereo's, Bluetooth speakers/devices that could accomplish this, but I wanted something that wasn't tied to my smartphone, as well as something that wouldn't involve a major renovation (my front wall is brick).

I've attended a few of these over the years. Yes, I know. It's at Pigeon Park, the heart of the Vancouver's downtown East-side. Yes, I know. They feed hundreds of people on this one night. Yes, I know. Those interested in offering donation or wanting to help can call Sean at 604-720-9335 So Mass, what exactly was it that you learned this week? Well, firstly, I learned that December 20, 2019 at 6pm is when this years annual Feeding The Homeless will take place. Secondly, sometimes its nice to look back and re-learn something as if it was the first time. I learned that we have to appreciate and value everything we have, and that it just takes one act of kindness, and selflessness to create something wonderful, that helps so many.
