A strong person stands up for themselves. but a stronger person stands up for others

Well, if you insist? is operated by one middle aged (crazy according to some) person whom lives on the Westside of Okanagan Lake BC along Westside Road, and whom smokes.  Thought that should be added, just in case it makes a difference.  If smoking has anything to do with it according to some people, you may want to use the red x in the upper right corner of this webpage.  We understand how smoking affects people, it turns people away because they don't want to breath the smoke LOL!  So please take advantage of this warning while you can, and we don't mean the cigarette brand when we say take advantage.... sorry if there is any misunderstanding.

This middle aged person actually feels privileged to be banned from emailing the Regional District of Central Okanagan. We know we must be doing something right LOL! doesn't exactly want to tell you who we are unless we trust you not to assassinate, as you may wish to assassinate the High Lord of this website whom is also well known as the webmaster of is somewhat reserved in this aspect, as any lord should be. can never be on everyone's good list so we wish to stay safe.

If you live in the local area, you may know whom is and may have even met  You may even be a neighbour of, maybe even unbeknownst to you.  Many people of Westside Road have met the webmaster of at one time or another and or are friends or acquaintance or have seen the website.

You may be a neighbour that wishes could do something about present problems.  Or you may be a neighbour whom wishes would take a hike. is a blacksheep in some people's eyes, so you can't count on any help coming from this end!  You could try joining the North Westside Ratepayers Association or another association from your area.  If you need help, you could try getting up off your duff and vote next time, if you didn't vote in the last election.  If you did vote, thanks!  You can read all about the latest in the Gossip section and prepare for the next election.

If you have lived on the Westside of Okanagan Lake for a while and haven't heard of before, where have you been LOL?

If you do a search on google for anything to do with Westside Road BC, most likely you will come up with a link to is concentrating developing on the North Westside of Okanagan Lake portion of the website and if you wish to contribute in other area's, don't hesitate to ask.  We are actually looking for someone that wants to help build this website.  If your interested please fill out's feedback form.

No there will be no profile photo posted of on the website.  If you want a profile ... here's one is not afraid of letting local people know who we are and whom we have had interaction with in the past, but we don't want to be a sitting duck if you know what is meant by that and know anything about the internet. You never know who your friends are, and the internet is no place to find out.

Thanks for reading and trying to learn more about  Hope to meet you some day in real life and through the local community some how ... if we haven't met already.

By the way, just below (and on the bottom of almost every page) is a photo of the famous and beginning to be rare mauve coloured Sagebrush Mariposa Lily that grows wild here in the Central Okanagan.  We have seen various colors of mauve, pink and white but not the very rare red and white one as yet.  If you see the red and white Mariposa Lily please be careful and don't damage it, as it is on the species at risk list.  Try and protect it if you can and who knows, maybe notify someone important.

Hope you enjoy the Okanagan as much as does!  Here are some photos to start you on your journey if you are new to the Okanagan and you wish to take in some sights along the rural area of Westside Road.


Wonders why a person bothers to lie when they live in a small town ... don't you know your dirty little secrets ARE the talk of the town?

"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail." Ralph Waldo Emerson

You have to have a little bit of craziness in your life to be able to survive in this insane world!!

I always give money to the homeless. I get yelled at that they are just gonna buy booze with. All I can think is ... Oh like I wasn't?

My doctor asked if any members of my family suffered from insanity, I replied, no, we all seem to enjoy it.

You may think I am crazy ... no worries, it is not contagious.

Dance like nobody (who can commit you) is watching.

Ah, Facebook, where it is socially acceptable to talk to a wall ...

Live life with no regrets -- yesterday is a memory, today is reality, and tomorrow is a dream

I don't have issues, I own a subscription.

Dear God, Please grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, courage to change the ones I can, and the wisdom to know which sh!thead is worth it.

I don't have an attitude problem, you just have a problem with my attitude. So which of us really has the problem?

Men: Can't live with them; Can't live without them; Can't shoot them because they are never in season!

Halo and wings or horns and pitchfork? Which one to wear today? Decisions, decisions...

Some people are like septic tanks... they both serve a purpose but most of the time are usually full of sh**! ^.^

"Stop telling lies about me and I'll stop telling truths about you... sound fair?

People will always talk about you no matter what you do, it's when they stop talking about you that's when you worry!

Do you know why men are afraid of women? Wouldn't you be afraid of something that bleed for seven days and didn't die...

I say ... quit trying to figure me out and just come along for the ride!

Don't like me? Cool, I don't wake up every day to impress YOU.

Just think how dull the world would be .. without crazy people like me!!!

Don't bother me to much, I'm too busy partying with all the skeletons in the closet!!!

When I woke up this morning the little devil on my shoulder was rubbing her knuckles and I couldn't find my little angel for nothing!

Even my blood type is negative.

Be the kind of person that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says~~
"Oh Crap, he or she are up!"

I have been to a lot of places, but I've never been in Cahoots. Apparently you can't go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone. I've also never been in Cognito, either. I hear no one recognizes you there. I have, however, been in Sane. They don't have an airport, you have to be driven there. I've made several trips!

I don't worry about people talking "behind my back", it just means that I am one step ahead of them, and they are exactly in the right direction to kiss my as*!!!

Life is short, don't waste time worrying about what people think of you. Hold on to the ones that care, in the end they will be the ones there. - Unknown

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life. - Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)

Stop trying to fit in, when you were born to stand out!

I am who I am, your approval isn't needed.

I'm not here to be liked.  The sheeple are still asleep.  So I'm here to wake them up.

Ever notice how people who tell you to calm down ... are the ones who got you mad in the first place..

How We Hide Email Addresses From Harvesters On

We use the Automatic HiveLogic Encoder Form to hide email addresses from email harvesters on website.  If the HiveLogic Encoder form is not working, sometimes we use a graphic image (.gif) or (.jpg).  You never want to publish your email address on the web without it being encoded or disguised in some way.  The Automatic HiveLogic Encoder Form turns your email address into Javascript so email harvesters who crawl the web looking for email addresses, hopefully won't harvest your email address and spam you with junk email when you are listed on  Hivelogic tells us that, "Although the Enkoder should help to reduce Spam, no solution is perfect. The only way to truly prevent Spam is to never publish your address at all, ever, anywhere."

Daily Average
The daily average is the number of visits in a month divided by the number of days in that particular month.

Visits occur when some remote site makes a request for a page on the server for the first time. As long as the same site keeps making requests within a given timeout period, they will all be considered part of the same Visit. If the site makes a request to the server, and the length of time since the last request is greater than the specified timeout period (default is 30 minutes), a new Visit is started and counted, and the sequence repeats. Since only pages will trigger a visit, remotes sites that link to graphic and other non-page URLs will not be counted in the visit totals, reducing the number of false visits.

Sites is the number of unique IP addresses/hostnames that made requests to the server. Care should be taken when using this metric for anything other than that. Many users can appear to come from a single site, and they can also appear to come from many IP addresses so it should be used simply as a rough gauge as to the number of visitors to the server.
