The City of Orillia Ontario, Canada Brought To You By Al and Peggy Cunningham of RE/MAX.  One of the neighbourhoods that is near and dear to our hearts, is the The City of Orillia Ontario, Canada that is located on the shores of two lakes; Lake Simcoe (known as the forgotten Great Lake) and Lake Couchiching which form part of the Trent-Severn Waterway System.  You can cruise the system from Lake Ontario to Georgian Bay.  You may wonder why we call the City of Orillia a neighbourhood.  Well with a population of only 31,000 it is more like a neighbourhood!   The Village of Orillia was founded in 1867 (sharing the same birth year as Canada), it was incorporated as a town in 1875 and then became a City in 1969. Orillia is known as the "Sunshine City" in the heart of Lake Country.  Orillia h...

As per Governor: The Bank has long expected that economic growth in Canada would resume in the second half of this year and pick up in 2010. Indeed, growth in Canada should resume this quarter.

Just saw this article and thought as Real Estate Agents you would be interested in it seeing it, our City of Brampton, Ontario, Canada didn't make the list of Canada's Best and Worst Run Cities. The article started off saying, "This survey, the first of its kind in Canada, provides citizens in 31 cities across the country with comparative data on how well-or poorly-their city is run, measured by the cost and quality of the public services it delivers." The article went on to say how they picked the cities they did.  Well, our City didn't make the list, it was probably omitted due to space as our City of Brampton, Ontario, Canada is one of the largest and fastest growing cities in Canada.  So if you have people looking to move to the Toronto area, Brampton is part of the Greater Toronto ...

Happy Sunday Morning, Thought we woke up before the Sun today. (LOL) Guess the Sun is out there somewhere but not here, right now. So, we thought we would send you a little Sun, if your Sun hasn't woke up yet either.  We were walking in the park yesterday and found a bed of miniature Sunflowers, they can always brighten a dull day.   May this little guy help brighten your day!   Al and Peggy Cunningham,http://www.TheHousePeople.comhttp://www.AlandPeggysCorner.com

You are not too late to guess where we took this picture, but you will have to study it before you scroll down as the answer has now been posted. A few of you got the right state... guess that Mexican-American food sign got you to think somewhere not to far from the border.  So if you think you have it, click here, this will take you to the first blog and register your comment and slide back here to check to see if you were right.   Okay, all votes are in and have been tabulated... we were missing a chad or two, oh well... The Burros were let loose and still today they wander the streets...   Here's a couple of those Burro's that think they own the town.   To get to Oatman, Arizona you have to travel along one of the most famous roadways in the United States, Route 66 If you get a chanc...

We'll let you know where the picture was shot tomorrow. Happy Guessing, this fine Friday, Al and Peggy Cunningham,http://www.TheHousePeople.comhttp://www.AlandPeggysCorner.com

Hi Everyone, Had an idea that this one would stump you.  It all started out early in the morning, had to do some yard work (not my favorite pass time), lifted up a patio stone... voila a "Name That Photo" picture op! Now, I did bend over to pick out a hard part of the picture, didn't want the first person to guess this time. Here was the picture in question:   At first glance, it could be just about anything... tired tread, running shoe sole? A lot of work went into designing this little city, but our quiz all started with the lifting of a patio stone.   Here, let's get a little closer (hope you aren't eating lunch) How do you like your eggs?  Sunny side up! Have a Great Day... Al and Peggy Cunninghamhttp://www.TheHousePeople.comhttp://www.AlandPeggysCorner.com

Okay, we'll take another shot at this... "Name That Photo"Our first two cracks at this little contest showed us how smart this AR Group really is. We went out in search of something that might stump you. We think we found it. So, are you ready... what is this?    Al and Peggy Cunninghamhttp://www.TheHousePeople.com

You Did It Again... First Guess... Bingo! This time it was Marg Scheben-Edey. Well, we don't feel too bad because Marg is showing us that Canadian AR'ers are pretty sharp too.  Within seconds she guessed the right answer. It just goes to show you, if we are going to try to stump you, it better be good.  We zoomed into a picture we took of a beautiful peacock, it didn't even look real, but that didn't matter, Marg and most of you all got it. Here's our "Name That Photo" picture of our beautiful peacock...   Here's the full picture...       Okay, we are off to find something that will stump you, we know it's a hard task, but we are going to give it a shot. Have A GREAT Day! Al and Peggy Cunninghamhttp://www.TheHousePeople.com

Okay, the last time we tried this, that Wanda girl from Utah blew our whole secret in seconds of us posting our "Name That Photo". What's this Wanda? We'll be back with the answer soon, we know it's hard to trick a good AR'er but we don't think the first guess will get this one. Al and Peggy Cunningham"http://www.TheHousePeople.com

Happy Good Morning on this fine "Friday's Fotos" day! Just fired up AR to post our photo and our eye caught the post by Paul Slaybaugh on the topic of copywriting.  It seems most want to keep their photo close to their heart and not let anyone else use them.  We're weird, you can use our photos, just call or email us so we can see it and tell everyone "we took that picture" Here's one we took on our last and first trip to Mexico.  We actually were staying in the Mayan Riviera and on our way home, at the airport they were looking for volunteers to give up their seat until the next day. Well it was tough, they sent us to Cancun for the day, put us up in the Hyatt Cancun Caribe Resort, (ocean front room for a mere 5,901 pesos (US $536). We took more pictures there than the rest of our trip...
