Tomorrow is Labour Day! Enjoy your day of rest and spend some quality time with your family as we wrap a fantastic summer and get set for our usual routines. Getting the kids back to school and refocus on our jobs and other commitments. For me Labour Day Weekend is a kick off to a new beginning, ...
Our cooling market is now a boon for home buyers. If you are looking to make a move now is your chance as the Sellers Market is now being shifted over to a Buyers Market.

So here it is the last long weekend of the summer- Labour Day. In Toronto and area, the forecast calls for rain and cooler temperatures. What a bummer to end the summer on a chilly note. I must tell you all I love it the best when its hot, humidity is not so bad for me. I am giving you a few idea...
I want you meet my cat Jameson, he is the most talkative little cat I know.

When I first moved here there was only one decent place to have coffee. My favourite is the newest addition, The Mascot, located at 1267 Queen St. We...
Toronto's   west end is going through a lot of changes.  King st. West has been a favourite over the last decade with the development of Liberty Village, now a vibrant community. Homeowners have benefited tremendously with their investment. There is another new community that is sprouting up. Thi...
Ah, the CNE is about to open in 1 day 11hrs and 8 mins. The CNE will open on Saturday, August 20th and run for 16 days, winding down on Sept. 6th. The count down is on. When I was a kid, going to the CNE was one of the highlights of my summer. We'd spend hours walking, enjoying the rides on the m...
Ok, so you all know I'm on the "a blog a day challenge". I have been sitting and thinking just what to write about and I'm coming up with a blank page. I'm sure I'm not only one! You know, you really want to write something useful but can't come up with fresh ideas. I've written the usual stuff a...
