Catch a shooting star tonight! - 06/30/10 12:55 PM
What a great prelude to tomorrow's Canada Day celebrations than to look for meteors tonight =) Via Susan Neal, Fair Oaks CA Real Estate Broker (Century 21 Noel David Realty): As some of my regular readers know, I have an interesting calendar that alerts me to special days that I didn’t know about before. For instance, Sunday was “Wear Sunglasses Day”, which was good because it was 103 degrees and very sunny here that day. Today, June 30, is Meteor Watching Day. Now I knew about the Leonid meteor showers and the Perseid showers that occur every August, but I didn’t know that (7 comments)

Kindergarten Graduation - 06/30/10 10:39 AM
My son has passed another milestone. He has "graduated" from Kindergarten. Mommy and Daddy, Grandma, Nana and Poppa were all there to share this special day with him. I will be the first to admit that when I first heard about this "graduation", I rolled my eyes and said to my wife "You are kidding me, right?". I had never heard of children graduating from kindergarten. I could not believe my wife was asking me to reserve a half day to attend this occasion. I was certain this was a "mountain made up of a mole hill"... We arrived early (my (4 comments)
I saw this post this morning, and it touched me. It manages to convey in a manner better than I could say, what I have felt to be my "purpose". Whether we choose to have a "good" day or not to have a "good" day is up to us, and regardless of our choice, we will be right... If I may add that I having been trying to pay particular attention of late to "appreciate" those near me, that I have tended to take for granted... my wife, my son, my mother-in-law, my parents, support staff at work, and those (8 comments)
Real Estate Myth Busters - 06/19/10 01:02 PM
Mike Montague, a Realtor from Barrie has written a great post outlining and responding to several Myths about Private Home Selling that have been gaining traction in the last few years. I highly recommend reading it =) Via Mike Montague - Barrie Ontario Real Estate (Sutton Group Incentive Realty Inc. Brokerage):
Something relatively new to real estate in the past ten years is the private home selling company. The proposition of saving thousands of dollars is enough to catch the attention of anyone. The idea of listing a home for anywhere from $700 for a sign on the lawn and an (1 comments)
Mold can be dangerous. This material has been gathered to inform people about mold. Before you attempt to remediate mold, seek expert and/or professional help.

You're going to be seeing "less" of me (Part Four) - 06/01/10 02:11 PM
Jun 1st... I now weigh six pounds less than I weighed May 1st... My goal has been ten pounds a month and I lost four pounds in April and now six pounds in May. I have "mixed" feelings... I am thirteen pounds behind my original schedule... Do I need to re-visit my goals? Do I need to "shape up" (I know I have been going off my plan for greater periods and the results show it :( Or should I take a proverbial "pill" and relax. Thirty Seven Pounds since Feb 1st is still an accomplishment. I had originally thought of (8 comments)
