donna malone: A Special Gift from Nova Scotia! - 11/29/11 08:32 PM
A Special Gift from Nova Scotia! If you ever visit Nova Scotia, there is at least one thing that you HAVE to do. You have to go to the lighthouse at Peggy's Cove. The granite rocks at Peggy's Cove are a wonder of nature. The water is deep and during a storm the waves are known to climb higher than the top of the lighthouse. It can be a very dangerous place to visit. You don't turn your back on the waves and you don't walk on the wet rocks. People have been swept off the rocks and never seen again. (17 comments)
donna malone: It took my breath away, I had to stop and shoot it! - 11/18/11 12:02 PM
It took my breath away, I had to stop and shoot it! As I was driving to work one morning this week, I was astounded by the beauty around me. This is part of my regular route and it is always beautiful. That morning, it was dead calm with beautiful light. I had to stop and take these photos. The mirroring of the landscape in the water is amazing. The white in the lower right of the second photo is a reflection of a cloud in the sky. The third photo is also a shot of the sky, reflected in the (7 comments)
donna malone: You can't do that, you're a girl! - 11/06/11 07:16 PM
You can't do that, you're a girl! I often think of the things I am thankful for, ... daily, in fact. I am thankful for my family. In particular, I am thankful for my paternal grandfather. He taught me that my opportunities were limitless, that I could be, do, anything I wanted. The first time I came up against "You can't do that because you're a girl.", I was 16. It was quite a shock. I thought, "Oh, no, I'm a girl - is there a cure? Why didn't someone tell me? Is it terminal?". I already had unshakeable confidence, (29 comments)
donna malone: Natural Disasters and Power Outages - We, Canadians, help our American cousins and they help us. - 11/04/11 09:53 AM
Natural Disasters and Power Outages - We, Canadians, help our American cousins and they help us. I have been reading some of the posts about the recent power outages, in the US. I understand that many people are still without power. My associate just told me, this morning, that emergency crews have been formed by the Nova Scotia Power Corporation. Her son was given a few hours notice that he was part of a crew that was being sent to Georgia. They arrived there yesterday. A few years ago there was a terrible ice storm in Quebec, power crews from neighbouring (4 comments)
donna malone: Will your discount brokerage do THIS for you? - 11/04/11 09:27 AM
Will your discount brokerage do THIS for you? I have a list of professional services that I provide to my clients, on the south shore of Nova Scotia, in Lunenburg County. My list of services is probably similar to the lists of other full service providers. When I am interviewing a lead who is considering using a discount brokerage, I make them aware of the value I add, as a full service provider. In addition to the services I list, there are services I provide because of an unforeseen circumstance. There was the time I got a call from a buyer (1 comments)
donna malone: The Housing market has already benefited from the 25 BILLION DOLLAR Announcement! - 10/20/11 03:50 PM
The Housing market has already benefited from the 25 BILLION DOLLAR Announcement! It has been reported that local residents are so excited about the coming economic boost, that they have already started buying houses! A young shipyard worker, who was a little reluctant to become a home owner because of an uncertain future, took the plunge yesterday. He bought a home because the $25 Billion contract means a career for him. No doubt, this story will be one of many such stories as more people get confirmation of their positions, as part of this project. It will be interesting to see (4 comments)
donna malone: This place is a-buzz! Good News is travelling at break neck speed! - 10/20/11 03:00 PM
This place is a-buzz! Good News is travelling at break neck speed! Halifax has been awarded the contract to build 21 ships for the navy over the next 30 years, at a cost of 25 BILLION DOLLARS. Speculation, about the effects on the economy, is spinning. Shelburne is expected to pick up business that will be referred from Halifax. Since the ferry service from Shelburne to the US was cancelled 2 years ago, Shelburne's economy has sustained heavy damage. This may be the boost that the Shelburne economy needs. There are signs that Liverpool may also be getting some economic benefit. (2 comments)
donna malone: Wow! Can you believe it? 25 BILLION dollars! - 10/20/11 01:41 PM
Wow! Can you believe it? 25 BILLION dollars will flow into the Nova Scotia economy over the next 30 years, from a government contract that was awarded yesterday. Irving Shipyards of Halifax won the military combat contract. They will build 21 new ships for the navy. It will mean thousands of new jobs. That is good news for many industries including the Real Estate Industry. Housing demand in Halifax and the surrounding area will go up. So will prices. Housing prices have been stable, with only small increases, for many years. Interest rates are low. This is a great time to buy property, now, before prices (2 comments)
donna malone: What are you most thankful for? - 10/09/11 10:02 AM
What are you most thankful for? It is Thanksgiving weekend in Canada! I have given some thought to the things in my life that I am thankful for. I am thankful that I am Canadian. I am thankful that I live in beautiful Lunenburg County on the South Shore of Nova Scotia.
I am thankful that I have love in my life. I am thankful that my family is healthy. I am thankful for my wonderful friends, that includes my ActiveRain friends who live in my computer. I am thankful for the great weather we have had this weekend. So (13 comments)
donna malone: Steve Jobs - What a Legacy! - 10/06/11 09:15 AM
Steve Jobs - What a Legacy! Steve Jobs has had a profound effect on the world. He was certainly a visionary. There is no doubt about that. He changed our lives forever. He understood the importance of user friendly and brought the mysterious world of computers into our offices, our homes, our brief cases, our purses and our pockets, in an easy to use format. I had just started working in the retail computer industry when the MAC 128K was released. I bought one and started loading my recipes into it. I thought it was wonderful. I remember how I marveled (10 comments)
