real estate: Joke of the Day - 05/24/09 02:40 AM
Three old couples were having tea one fine day. There were all chatting and whatnot when one of the men, trying to get a chuckle, said to his wife, "Pass the honey, honey!” Getting the chuckle he expected, he carried on. A moment later, the second man said, "Pass the sugar, sugar!" This got a bit of a bigger laugh, so the third man, although not quite as clever or quick-witted as the other two, decided to join in the fun. He waited for the perfect opportunity, cleared his throat and then confidently said, "Pass the tea, bag!"

real estate: Lawyer Joke - 05/14/09 02:34 PM
There was a man driving a pickup truck down a country road, when suddenly he was broad sided by a trailer truck. Some time went by, and the case got to court. The defense attorney said to the plaintiff, "How can you be suing my client now when you told a trooper after the accident that you felt fine?" The man replied, "Well sir, it was like this. We was drivin' down the road, mindin' our own business, when a big trailer truck came out of nowhere and creamed us. When I came to, I was in the ditch, and a … (2 comments)

Scenic Caves Nature Adventures (caves, suspension bridge) opens the first weekend in May weather permitting and runs through to late October, seven days a week. Visit their WINTER site for information on their cross-country ski and snowshoe trails and services.

real estate: Collingwood area top 10 Golf Courses-showcasing the best of Ontario's Golf - 05/02/09 03:16 AM
The golf season is upon us and this area boasts some of the most challenging, scenic, architecturally gratifying courses in Ontario.
http://www.teeingitup.com/ontario/top-10-collingwood.htm
My Commentary
Duntroon - Spectacular views of the Bay and Area from atop the escarpment, a low cost funky golf course.
Baywood in Wasaga - Back 9 is the toughtest I have played.
Atoka at Cranberry - Links style course, generous fairways but challenging, watch out for the 16th, one of the toughest par 3's in the province, if its windy it might be wise to layup and get out of there with a par or bogey.
Monterra - … (0 comments)

real estate: Largest Tax Hike Ever in Ontario - 04/28/09 07:23 AM
Hello everyone
   As a concerned taxpayer I feel it is important to have you all understand what the new HST or “blended tax” means to Ontarians. It amazes me that this announcement has slipped by without a ripple, and yet when I tell people about the impact to them they are all shocked. The intended purpose is to blend the GST and the PST into one tax. This will cut down the paperwork burden for Ontario businesses and, in theory, lessen staff by merging both departments. This could be a noble attempt to cut costs. There is just one problem. … (0 comments)
