Selling Your Home: Where to Begin? First Impressions Remember what first attracted you to your house when you bought it? What excited you about its most appealing features? Now that you're selling your home, you'll need to look at it as if you were buying it all over again. A spruced up house makes a great first impression on potential buyers. An attractive property grabs their attention and makes them excited about finding a house that looks and feels well-cared for. Because buyers know they’ll encounter fewer problems if they buy it, your house becomes more appealing and stands out from the competition. So if you prepare your home correctly, you’ll save time selling it when it’s on the market. A good first impression makes an impact on a number of levels. It’s not just the way your ho...

TODAY I JUST LEARNED ABOUT THE 2ND LEADING CAUSE OF LUNG CANCER While Driving today and Listening to a local Talk show on Victoria's CFAX radio, they where talking about the dangers of Radon Gas. Saying it is the 2nd leading cause of Lung Cancer after Smoking. I have heard of Radon, but never gave it a second thought or knew of it's danger until today.  The Radio Host and Guest went into detail explaing where it is found...Where?

NOVEMBER 11 Remembering...Lest we Forget those that gave their lives In Flanders Fields by Major Dr. John McCrae, May 1915 In Flanders fields the poppies blowBetween the crosses, row on row,That mark our place; and in the skyThe larks, still bravely singing, flyScarce heard amid the guns below.   We are the Dead. Short days agoWe lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,Loved and were loved, and now we lieIn Flanders fields.Take up our quarrel with the foe:To you from failing hands we throwThe torch; be yours to hold it high.If ye break faith with us who dieWe shall not sleep,though poppies growIn Flanders fields.   On 2 May, 1915, in the second week of fighting during the Second Battle of Ypres Lieutenant Alexis Helmer was killed by a German artillery shell. He was a friend of the Canadian mi...

Victoria is seeing another Indian Summer again this Fall, The Rains has started, yet we're seeing back to back Sunny Days too. Yesterday while out for a daily walk with my Puppy 7 month old Mini Poodle, we went along a Trail near us known as Panama Flats in Saanich. Beside the trail is a pond where our local Ducks reside and call home. The Sunny afternoon presented a nice opportunity for a great Photo Opportunity. Enjoy
