There was an idiot on the news today who was ticked off, because B.C. motor vehicles wouldn’t let him take his driver’s licence photo with a spaghetti strainer on his head. He claimed he is a member of the “Pastafarian” religion and that the strainer is religious head gear. (I don’t make this junk up). Anyway, I Googled it and by god, it does exist. It was started by a college kid in the States as a spoof on organized religion and lots a people grabbed on. It’s actually quite clever. I’ve attached a link.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flying_Spaghetti_Monster

ARE YOU BUYING A HOME THIS SUMMER OR JUST LOOKING?   I find many potential home buyers are really interested are just looking to see what homes are For Sale in their neighbourhood before selling their home...Many homeowners planning on selling go house hunting first to see if there are homes in their price range they like.
