howard sanders: A Change in the BC Real Estate Market - 07/24/08 10:20 AM
After five years of blockbuster activity and double-digit price growth here in BC, real estate market conditions have slowed, and now favour buyers in many areas of the province.
Across the province, residential sales have declined 22 per cent in the first six months of this year, while available resale inventory has grown by 54 per cent to 57,000 active listings in June. In the Greater Vancouver area, inventory is at the highest level since 1998.
The price gains observed from 2004 to 2007 are less attainable in today’s market, and sellers should temper their expectations for such gains. Over-optimistic … (0 comments)

howard sanders: Pender Island Events - Canada Day Long Weekend June 27-July1 - 06/27/08 07:22 AM
 It's here -- one of the busiest summer weekends here on Pender. The ferry lineups are long, it's hard to find a parking space down at the Driftwood Centre, and the grocery store will run out of bread by Sunday afternoon. But, all is well...most residents are happy to share Pender's wealth with our summertime visitors. After all, the quiet winter months are not far away, and there will be lots of time for winter walks in the woods with no one else around, and long evenings spent around the woodstove reading and playing cards.
But enough about winter. You're here … (1 comments)

howard sanders: It Ain't Easy Being Green (Especially These Days) - 04/02/08 10:58 AM
Right from the start, you should know that this post has nothing to do with Pender Island.  Or real estate.  It's all about amphibians -- you know, frogs and friends -- and what is happening to them.
In a much earlier life, I worked as a Keeper at Whipsnade Zoo in the UK.  Then I went on to work as a photographic safari guide in Zambia.  As you can gather from this, I love animals.  All animals.  Even the ones other people refer to as "slimy and gross."
Which is why this post is about the Amphibian Ark.  The Ark is project of … (3 comments)

howard sanders: Have You Heard of Eco Balls? - 04/01/08 09:27 AM

What are they and what are they for?
Eco-balls are the environmentally sensitive way to do your laundry.  You simply place 3 eco balls in with your wash, INSTEAD of your regular laundry detergent. 
Together, they produce ionized oxygen that activates the water molecules naturally and allows them to penetrate deep into clothing fibres to lift the dirt away.  Imagine: no detergent going into the water that's a GREEN idea!
According to this website, there are many benefits of switching to eco balls:
One set of eco balls will last … (0 comments)
