collingwood real estate: Facebook Service, Page Name Changes - 07/10/09 05:40 AM
I finally got a response from FB (after a month) about changing my business page to Sutton on the Bay Realty. to no avail, I'm pretty sure the entity I am further exchanging emails with is a robot named Giorgio. Such a disengaging, dehumanizing corporate world this is becoming, even from the leader in social networking, the irony. I would gladly pay for service if it was available.

collingwood real estate: State of the art water filtration in Collingwood = Safe Drinking Water - 05/27/09 06:27 PM
     Sometimes we don't think to much about the water we drink until a tragedy like Walkerton unfolds.  Its an important factor when choosing a place to live, not only from a health perspective,  but as a safeguard against the risk of exposing your property to potential value loss.  Good clean drinking water is vital to maintaining and maximizing property value, think of it as investment protection.  If you don't believe me, try to sell a property where the well has gone bad.

collingwood real estate: Joke of the Day - 05/16/09 03:13 AM
Two men were walking through the woods and came upon a big black, deep hole. One man picked up a rock and tossed it into the hole and stood listening for the rock to hit bottom. There was no sound. He turned to the other guy and said "that must be a deep hole...let's throw a bigger rock in there and listen for it to hit bottom." The men found a bigger rock and both picked it up and lugged it to the hole and dropped it in. They listened for some time and never heard a sound. Again, they agreed … (0 comments)

You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night. You pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for the bus:

collingwood real estate: Golf Joke - 05/12/09 11:18 AM
A scratch golfer hits his ball three hundred yards straight down the fairway, and it hits a sprinkler and careens off into the woods. He finds the ball, but trees surround it. He s pissed, says what the hell, grabs his nine-iron, and hits the ball as hard as he can. It bounces off a tree back at the golfer’s head and kills him.

Looking up his records, God sees that the guy golf’s and says, “Are you any good?” The golfer looks at God and … (0 comments)
