Roosting

FYI: Birds do not sleep in nests.

Nests are safe places for birds to leave their eggs; they are not self-made sleeping quarters.

That being said, birds have been known to nod off, while sitting atop their eggs. But the only reason they have chosen the nest for rest is to keep the eggs warm.

Birds roost.

When a bird seeks out a roosting location they are looking for two things: warmth and safety. Songbirds sleep off the ground to avoid predators but larger birds can sleep anywhere, from on the water, to branches, to on the ground.

Birds that sleep in bushes, on branches or on power lines, have flexor tendons in their legs that maintain a fixed grip on their chosen perch. These tendons only release the grip, established by the bird’s feet, when the leg is outstretched. This trait allows some birds the ability to sleep upside down.

Birds often flock together for safety while they sleep. The birds in the center of the formation are able to completely nod off, while the ones on the outer ring adopt a unihemispheric slow-wave sleep. During this kind of sleep, the birds keep one eye open to watch for predators. Half of their brain is allowed to rest while the other half is on moderate alert. Throughout the night, the birds on watch switch positions with the inner circle, giving the entire flock a chance for consistent rest.

A great local example of this sleep formation is the flock of crows that roost along Boundry Road, on the border of Vancouver and Burnaby. You can see these crows moving into position an hour before dusk every night. It is one of the coolest natural phenomenons in Vancouver.

Fun Fact: A flock of crows is not a murder. Poets, not the scientific community, adopted the term ‘murder of crows’. Birders and scientists use the common term ‘flock’ to describe a group of crows.

Married Against Your Will

Today (March 18th, 2013) the BC Government announced that any couple, hetrosexual or otherwise, that has been co-habiting a home for two years or more is officially married in the eyes of the law.

Common law partners will see an equal division of assets, visitation rights with children as well as a sharing of debt should they separate. They will be given the same power of attorney as married couples, the same rights of not testifying in court if it came to that, and the same status in the eyes of the CRA.

However, this supposed equality comes at a price. What of those who don’t want to be ‘married in the eyes of the law’? What ever happened to making your own decisions on what the nature of a relationship should be? Can we expect to see a slew of crazy court cases between jilted exes and roommates in the next few months?

In the world of mattresses Vancouver stores are anticipating an influx of couples buying new beds. After all, in for a penny, in for a pound, and if your two-year shack-up has turned into a full-blown marriage, you might as well splurge on a good bed.

Right now Simmons Mattress Gallery has Beautyrests on sale for up to 75% off. It’s a Close Out Sale and if you get your roommate, er girlfriend, rather wife down here with you, it’s the perfect time to choose a luxurious bed for your ‘honeymoon’ and happily ever after.

Kerrisdale Mattress Store

If you think that Kerrisdale does not have the breadth to satisfy all of your shopping needs, you are not alone. There are many fantastic boutique stores, coffee shops and local outfits, but there is one thing missing – a specialized Kerrisdale mattress store.

Sure, you can get a small selection of Simmons Beautyrest mattresses at some of the stores on 41st, but it’s hard to find a specific, exclusively Simmons retailer.

That doesn’t mean there isn’t one nearby. Simmons Mattress Gallery is only 5.6 km down the road. Simply drive down 41st to Oak, hang a left, and keep driving 32 more blocks until you hit Broadway. According to Google Maps it should take you 11 minutes.

At Simmons Mattress Gallery you will find that mattress Vancouver retailers wish they had, but never have – The Triple Edge Beautyrest. Only SMG can carry the Simmons Triple Edge. So be sure to ask for this signature beauty by name.

Another interesting note, if you search for mattress Kerrisdale on Google.ca, you will see that Simmons Mattress Gallery is already at the top. So that has to tell you something.

Surrey Mattress Store

Surrey isn’t that far from Vancouver, BC. Probably, most people who live in Surrey commute to work in the city each morning. And return home each afternoon. Surrey is a beautiful little nook for those who love the city but want more. The lawn. The acreage. The neighbourhood.

Can’t say much about the Surrey mattress stores though.

Just because you live further from the city, doesn’t mean you need to disadvantage yourself. You can still have the best of both worlds.

Demand more from your Surrey mattress store, nothing about your existence out here has been a compromise, so why should your mattress, or selection of mattress, or choice of bed?

One of the most important things to remember about Surrey, BC is that it is actually very close to Vancouver. If you chose to live there, you want the amenities, the shows, the sports and the action – but at an arm’s length. The same can be said for having what is best in the west. There is no need to settle for an inferior mattress and a lesser night’s sleep, when it is possible to pick up a Simmons Beautyrest for up to 60% off on your way back from work.

If you are already in Vancouver five days a week – make the most of it. Go to Simmons Mattress Gallery on 1001 West Broadway and get yourself the finest bed. If you don’t have a truck, or a means to carry it, Simmons can arrange for that as well.

Hope Mattress Store

If you live in Hope, BC and you need a mattress store in Hope, BC, what are you going to do? It’s not like there’s a plethora of mattress stores in Hope BC.

Tell you what. Mention that you saw this post and come into our Simmons Mattress Gallery in Vancouver, BC. We’re on 1001 West Broadway, on the corner of Broadway and Oak.

Tell us that you read this blog. Give us some proof that you are from Hope, BC and that you are looking for a mattress, and we will give you the deal of a lifetime.

Heavy Heads Need Good Beds

When you are tired, nothing is worse than not being able to sleep. Sometimes, you’re over-tired. You’ve been up for so long that your body just can’t seem to throw the switch over into sleep mode. Suddenly, everything is uncomfortable. You become sensitive to everything. Your pillow is too lumpy. There’s sand in the sheets. You can feel every itch on your body and you pray that ain’t bugs.

If you have an old mattress you can feel the springs digging in, and your water moves to the side in the glass as your bed tilts more than a pinball machine. It’s impossible to sleep when you’re over-tired on a rotten, uncomfortable bed.

When you have a heavy head, you need a good bed. You need the best quality mattress at a top value price. For a premium mattress Vancouver professionals Simmons Mattress Gallery have Besityrests now on sale for up to 60% off.

If you have a heavy head, give it a soft landing.

BC Mattress Store

Simmons Mattress Gallery has locations in Coquitlam, BC and Vancouver, BC. You can find us right in the heart of Vancouver at 1001 West Broadway and Oak Street. We’re on the corner. Our other store is at 101 Schoolhouse Street in Coquitlam, BC. It’s just off Lougheed Highway by the Cactus Club there. There is plenty of parking and there are other clothing and household stores in the area if you want to do some general shopping while you’re there.

Our Broadway location also has free parking if you use our underground parking lot (just take the first west corner after you go north down Oak).  Bring your ticket into the store and we’ll redeem it.

Also note, that all of our mattresses are locally made, right here in BC.

Giving Your Bed That Showroom Feel

When you try bed in showroom it feels as it should – broken in. After all, we’ve had numerous shoppers test it out, not to mention a few staff who’ve caught a few zs on their breaks. Just kidding.

If you get your new bed and it doesn’t feel exactly as it did in the showroom, that’s normal too. Give it time. A month or so. Once you’ve broken it in to the same level as it was on the showroom, you’ll remember why you bought it in the first place.

If you want it to feel that way, right away, you’ll need a floor model to have one that feels like it’s on the floor.

Port Coquitlam Mattress Store

8.5 km. That’s it. If you want to get a top quality mattress you only need to drive for fifteen minutes. That’s less time than it takes to cross from one side of downtown Vancouver to the other.

Sure, there are mattress stores in Port Coquitlam, so why would you drive the extra mile? Because we do the same.

At Simmons Mattress Gallery, they have the least pushy salespeople out there.  They are informative, patient and there to help you answer your questions. Located at 1001 Schoolhouse St, Simmons is not technically a Port Coquitlam mattress store, but it is in Coquitlam, and therefore close.

If the professionalism of the sales staff is not enough to make you go from Port Coquitlam to Coquitlam, consider the pricing.

Currently, Simmons Mattress Gallery in Coquitlam is having a Truckload Sale with beds as low as $147! That’s incredible. They have mattresses bargain priced at up to 60% off.

So if you are looking for a mattress store in Port Coquitlam, look a little further, and you’ll find the perfect place for your new bed – just 8.5 km away – in Coquitlam.

Montreal Unrest

Students have lousy beds. They live in a ghetto. They have drunk people banging pots and pans in their ears all night. These conditions are hardly conducive to rest and comfort. So it’s little wonder they get up in arms over every little imposition. If you were sleeping badly, you’d probably be a bit ornery yourself.

Unrest is just that – the opposite of rest. If the premier was smart, he’d make a peace offering to the 165,000 students storming the streets. He’d give them better beds. They’d be much more complacent if they had something nice to go to every night. Then, he could quietly raise their tuition while they were sleeping and no one would be the wiser.

When you’re waking up rested every day in a beautiful city, in one of the best countries of the world, taking on the same debt as most people pay for a car, to help pay for an education the government is subsidizing, suddenly doesn’t seem all that unreasonable. It’s amazing how a relaxed outlook can put things in perspective.

Bear this in mind if you have restless teens of your own. The best way to combat unrest is the most literal way – get them a great bed. Now’s the time to do it. Simmons Mattress Gallery is offering beds at 60% off.

Where Do Kings Sleep?

With tonight’s victory over the New Jersey Devils, the Los Angeles Kings are now 15-2. This makes them one game shy of two league records.

The first is their win-loss record. They beat the Vancouver Canucks, the league leaders, in only five games. They then squashed the Blues 4-0 and the Coyotes 4-1 as well. This put them at 12-2 coming into the finals, without a single loss on the road. Few teams have achieved this feat. But if they carry on their streak to 16-2, they will be the most dominant team to ever find its way in the playoffs. And from a last place start!

(Actually they will share this record with the ‘88 Edmonton Oilers.)

The other record is their humble origins. They were ranked last coming into the playoffs. No 8th seeded team has ever held the cup. So they will make the books in that department as well. Talk about the ultimate Cinderella story.

Beyond growing their beards there is only one thing that they can do at this point. Rest. More exercise and practice is only going to wear them out more. If we want to see history made in the coming week, they are going to need to need a good sleep.

The Kings haven’t lost a game on the road. What hotels they’re staying at? And more importantly, what kind of beds are in these hotels? Our money’s on the Beautyrest. Let’s find out.

UPDATE: After a little sleuthing, it looks like the Kings were staying at the Doubletree Newark in New Jersey before their two big wins over the Devils. I’ve called a few times, but still don’t have a definite answer on whether they use Simmons Beautyrests or not. I’m sure they do! But I’ll keep you posted.

Bed Ridden Injury

The last thing you want to think about when you’re out with an injury is the discomfort of your mattress.

Those who are bedridden spend all day in bed. It might be a broken leg, it might be something worse, but the sad reality is they’re confined to bed for the majority of their time for weeks on end.

Make sure their rest is a good one. Flowers are nice, but what better way to console a sick friend or family member than with a new mattress to ease the sorrow. (Also buying them TV access in the hospital is a nice idea.)

Our Coquitlam mattress store has adjustable beds for those who use their mattresses for more than sleeping. They will be able to sit up and read or watch the TV, which makes being injured a little less disheartening.

Beds of the World

In different places of the world, you’ll find the way they build a mattress varies depending on climate and materials available.

For instance, in India, you’ll find Coir, or coconut husk mattresses. While it sounds a bit scratchy, it’s supposed to be rather nice.

In South America they prefer a foam mattress. North America, they have spring mattresses. (Also memory foam tops are quite popular.)

Comfort, well, that’s subjective. But personally, we like our Beautyrests. To find the comfort preference level that’s right for you, drop by a Simmons Mattress Gallery today.

Beds in the park in San Telmo

I’ve seen couches left in the parks in Vancouver to later be thoroughly enjoyed by the bums over the course of the summer.

In Buenos Aires, it’s a different story. Here, we found three beds in a row. Complete with boxsprings with legs. And by the looks of it, the bums sleep on them, and live right next to them with their supply of random gear, shopping carts and even wooden crutches.

Only in weather as warm as Argentina would you find something like this. It seems like quite a comfortable setup they have, actually.

It’s one thing to be homeless, that’s bad, but bed-less – that is even more tragic.

Resolutions

Well it’s a new year, and a new chance to change our wicked ways.

New Year’s resolutions is a tradition that is more often broken than kept. But it’s a nice idea that we will make some significant changes in our health and lifestyle.

Some of the most common resolutions include getting in shape, losing weight, and quitting smoking.

But what about sleeping better? One of the fastest ways to improve your health is by getting a decent sleep. If it’s been a few years since you’ve had a new mattress – you might be surprised at how much more restful your six-hour slumber is on a brand-new bed.

What were your resolutions this year?

It’s Nice To Have a Good Bed

After years of sleeping on crooked futons and ratty hand-me-downs, it’s nice to have a decent king sized bed to call your own.

This is for all you elbow-throwers, and midnight kickers. Noctural thrashers and snoring starfish. Think of your loved ones. And get a good bed for them as well.

They need an undisturbed sleep as much as you do.

Beautyrest mattresses will eliminate motion transfer from one sleeping partner to another.

Once you’ve had a new, comfortable, king-sized bed from a premium brand like Simmons Beautyrest- there is no going back.

Treat yourself right now, and you’ll even find beds at Year-End Clearance prices of up to 60% off.

I know it’s been said many times, many ways, but:

It’s nice to have a good bed.

A Healthy Lifestyle Starts With Your Mattress

How much money do you spend at the pharmacy each month on products designed to improve your looks? Close to a hundred dollars probably. You need to buy shampoo, bodywash, facial scrubs, toothpaste and beauty products – it all adds up. What about for your interior organs? You probably buy at least one multi-vitamin and maybe one package of stomach relief.

Did you know that a good night’s rest could change your daily complexion and help you fight off illness?

Your gym membership costs more than half your pharmacy bill and you still have to put in the work.

An undisturbed rest is free on a Beautyrest.

Those Sudoku puzzles you do to keep your brain active are rather time consuming. The first four were fun, but numbers really aren’t that interesting.

Eight hours of sleep is the perfect amount of rest needed to maintain your mental potential throughout the working day.

Seems like you could save a lot of time, money and stress by upgrading your mattress set. A Simmons may not freshen your breath, but it will do wonders for your health. Try one today at Vancouver’s mattress store, Simmons Mattress Gallery.

Vancouver’s 125th Birthday Celebration (Part 1)

This Wednesday, April 6th, marks the official start to Vancouver’s 125th Birthday celebration. There will be an all-day event at Jack Poole Plaza, the site of the Olympic Cauldron. The festivities will begin at 2pm and continue until 10pm.

The opening event will be a drop-in street hockey tournament. This will be followed by an organized youth tournament featuring teams from Thunderbird, Sunset, West End, Britannia, Riley Park and Killarney communities.

From 6:00 to 7:00 will be the Official Ceremonies, with a giant birthday cake and speeches by Mayor Gregor and other dignitaries.

The big draw will be a performance by Vancouver’s own classic rockers, 54-40. They will hit the stage around 8:45 and will play until 10:00. During the performance, the plaza will become the backdrop for a video and light installation titled Time Drifts, by Berlin-based artist Phillipp Geist.

In the spirit of our ever-loving cycling mayor, there will be a bicycle valet option for those of you choosing the two-wheeled commute.

Gregor has also promised to unveil other events as the year progresses.

The Olympics were just the beginning Vancouver! Let’s celebrate who we are and where we came from!

Blow Out The Candles

Shopping Cart Art

One of the most alluring aspects of Vancouver is our dedication to the Arts. All around our city, there are indoor and outdoor installations featuring the work of local artists. From the public statues erected for the Olympic year, to small galleries on Granville Island, to the always-inspiring work of Bill Reid at the Museum of Anthropology, Vancouver is proud to display the talents of Canadian artists.

One of the smaller galleries that is making a name for itself for its historical and cultural exhibits is The Pendulum Gallery. The Pendulum is located at the base of the HSBC tower. It is a seven story, glass-covered atrium, created with the help of the City of Vancouver to promote cultural and historical exhibitions.

Last month, the Pendulum showed a photography exhibit titled “Swedes in B.C.,” which documented the life of Swedish immigrants.

This month, the gallery will be showing the work of Taizo Yamamoto. Yamamoto has produced an exhibition of intricate drawings titled “Shopping Carts and Recent Drawings.” The works present artifacts and single subject sketches of downtown life. The shopping carts are presented as still lifes, a vehicle holding the possessions and survival instruments of absent figures. The detail is truly amazing and worth the trip downtown.

So come out and support the work of local artists. You will walk away with a new appreciation for your own community and the projects it inspires.

Yamamoto’s work will be shown until March 5th.

Nightly Attire

What do you wear to bed on a nightly basis? Simmons Mattress Gallery wants to know.

Each one of us has a certain bedtime uniform that we feel the most comfortable in after-hours. Some of us retire to our bed wearing half of what we wore that day. Others spend each night in pajamas. Others still, sleep in boxers and a t-shirt.

Feeling sexy? There is always that lingerie at the back of your sock drawer. Feel like a fabric hug? Pull out the hoodie from College. Cold feet? Those wool socks you bought for skiing in 2007 are great!

And then some of us feel the most comfortable with nothing on. Commando!

Simmons Mattress Gallery would like to conduct a poll of what the majority of British Columbians wear to bed. Join our Facebook group and post your answers on our wall. Following us on Twitter? Send us a message or @mention us on your own feed. Just give us a brief description of what you wear on a regular night when you go to sleep.

Feel like doing some mattress shopping in your nightly garbs? Bring them down, change in the back and try out some of the finest beds in the business in your most comfortable evening attire. We won’t judge.

(Is that a Tears For Fears concert shirt???)

Finding the Right Mattress For Your Pregnancy

Tossing and turning with a basketball glued to your stomach is a difficult task!

Simmons Mattress Gallery would like to make your pregnancy more comfortable. A quality spring mattress with a memory foam top is just the thing for finding the ideal sleeping conditions during your nine months of growth.

A Simmons non-flip pocket coil mattress will keep you properly supported through the entire night. With individual springs, your mattress will respond to your movements with soft fingers of compression. The coils will reduce motion transfer, so your partner can sleep through the night as well.

For an extra layer of comfort on top of your springs, take the memory foam option. Nothing moulds to your changing figure quite like memory foam.

You may find that you will require additional firmness at points during your pregnancy. Just remove the foam top and store it carefully in an elevated area of your closet.

One thing you definitely don’t want to invest in is a waterbed. Though the idea of floating while sleeping may seem intriguing, waterbeds do not supply nearly enough support for pregnant women. They can also be dangerously hard to get out or off of. Stay away from the 80’s fad and live in the present with the latest innovations from Simmons.

Sleep well ladies.

Sleep Through the Night

Romantic Inclinations

Romance is thick in the air this week, as lovers across the Lower Mainland profess their undying love for one another with heart felt cards and more than one or two sad clichés.

But if you are one of those absentminded folk, who may have forgotten to grab some overpriced flowers for your shmoopie, it’s not too late. For the flowers, maybe, but there are other gifts that can get you back in the good books with your significant other.

Our suggestion to you: head over to Simmons Mattress Gallery for a great deal on a new bed. Nothing says, ‘baby, I know I messed up, but I want to fix it so we can get back to having fun,’ like a new passion platform. Simmons has a massive variety of beds in ranging sizes, firmness and extravagance. Upgrade from your Ikea cast-off to a bed that will keep you and your loved one comfortable for years to come. Buy it before Friday and he/she will never remember your epic fail.

Want to make a romantic evening out of it? Pack some sexy nightwear, for both of you, and head into our showroom to sample some of our beds on display. We won’t judge your tiger print and we promise not to stare at your partner’s visible parts. Just hold off on the physical stuff until you get home.

Happy Valentines week, from your friends at Simmons Mattress Gallery.

Canada’s Arcade Fire Takes Top Prize

Justin Bieber and Drake were denied Grammies this Sunday, but their more mature compatriots – Neil Young, Michael Bublé and the Arcade Fire – managed to nab a few of the show’s top awards.

Bieber and Drake both lost out to American bassist and vocalist, Esperanza Spalding, in the new artist category. This was a crushing blow to the Bieb Army and to the many fans of Degrassi: The Next Generation.

But it was the Arcade Fire from Montreal, who pulled off the biggest upset of the evening by taking home the award for album of the year. After the announcement of the award, the ensemble group played an encore of “Ready to Start,” with the ironic lyrics: “all the kids have always known / that the Emperor wears no clothes.” Guess they never thought their indie pop would ever land them on a stage with a naked Eminem.

Neil Young proved his resilience, winning in the best rock song category with his track “Angry World.” It was Neil Young’s first Grammy for music.

Bruce Allen’s protégé, Michael Bublé, took home the award for Best Traditional Pop Album, with “Crazy Love” and housewives across the globe swooned simultaneously.

Better luck next year Biebs!

Believe it America!

Adjustable Beds in Vancouver – For the Love of Reading

One of the best ways to drift off to dreamland is in under the spell of a captivating novel. Vivid with imagery and wrought with passion and big ideas, a compelling work of fiction can paint new worlds in our mind for us to explore in a lucid state. Or, an inspiring biography can fill our dreams with new ambitions and insights to the obstacles in our way, and offer solutions to overcome them.

Reading before bed relaxes the mind. It takes us away from our everyday concerns that can have us tossing and turning restlessly all night.

However, there are only a few positions to read comfortably in bed. You can stack up pillows behind you and lean against the wall. This can prove to be difficult if you have castors on your bed frame. Also, it demands that you sit almost completely upright, which is not as languid a state as some fiction requires.

Another option is to lie completely flat on your back and crane your neck upwards to the page. The problem with this approach is that it can get rather uncomfortable, and give you quite the neck-ache in the morning.

Any voracious reader should seriously consider an adjustable bed. Equipped with a remote control, an adjustable mattress can reposition itself effortlessly to maximize your reading comfort. Your back will be pleasantly reclined, and your feet nicely supported at the knees.

It’s a gentler, more relaxing way to read your favourite stories in bed, without straining your neck, or disrupting your partner.

Buying a Better Bed

Here are three things to keep in mind when shopping for a better mattress.

1. Notice how well the bed conforms to the shape of your body. The higher the conformability, the less you will toss and turn.

2. Pay attention to weight distribution. Proper support is important for your spine, and the quality of your sleep.

3. Take note of the plushness and cushioning. The layers of foam, felt and natural materials and the coil construction will all affect your sleeping experience.

A perfect sleep is within reach.
