I get emails from the Royal Canadian Mint all the time, Amy and I have a small, but personal coin collection, and I enjoy looking at all the kinds of coins that the mint creates. Canada has some of the most unique collectable coins in the world…we were the first to add printed colour to circulating coins, the first to make glow in the dark coins, the first to create coins that incorporate glass (which are so cool looking!), and the list goes on.

BUT…check out this newest coin that the mint has created. (more…)

In Flanders FieldsThis day is particularly special to me.  I have experience and know several people, family included, that fought in the wars. Young men and women that worked harder than most of the current generation combined. Because they had to.                         They had to, knowing that if they did not succeed, then their children would not have the freedoms we so cherish and take for granted. (more…)

In the aftermath of a federal election, lots of conversations have been spurred.  Some hopeful, some fearful.  I’ve spoken with some that are overjoyed, and I’ve heard hushed voices warning of dire things to come.  It was one conversation that sticks out in my mind though, and it’s one that I want to share (paraphrased, of course, and without naming names)…

Whether you support the Liberals or not, that is the party that as of November 4 will lead our country with a majority government.  The voice of Canada has spoken, and it has done so with (more…)

writing...Geez, it’s been a while since I’ve hammered on the keyboard for my blog.  Too long, apparently, because I’ve had a number of people ask me where I’ve gone…both with my blog and my newsletter!  So I’m here to say, I’m back to writing and Imma gonna do my best to keep on top of it!

I figure I’m going to do a few changes though, and work to implement some projects I’ve been dying to do.  We all know video is where it’s at, and if you’ve been following my business (real estate), you will have noticed that I’ve been doing full video virtual tours for the homes I sell…and the response has been incredible!  So I want to take it to the next level and do a showcase series for my county.  It’s actually something I’ve been pondering for quite a while now (over a year!), but…well…life kind of gets in the way sometimes.

See, I live in one of the most beautiful areas in Southern Ontario, and I want to show it off.  Yes, I know I’m a bit biased, but I think after I show you all what I’m talking about, it will be hard to argue the fact.  I’ll continue to write the way I always have, but these will be some…added pieces.

So be patient with me, and we’ll make this year a year of exploration!  Thanks for riding along  🙂

Ontario Election 2014I hope I’m not writing this too late for some people.  I’m sure that you all know that in a few days it’s time to go to the voting booth again (well, those of you in Ontario…), but have you made up your mind on who you want to vote for?  Are you planning on going at all?  Before you place the X beside a candidate, consider your options (and you might have options you didn’t even know about!)

Ok, so we may not all fit into the “born to be wild” category, but for a few days out of the year you sure can participate!  Yesterday was another one of the incredible gatherings that Port Dover has become famous for.  Friday the 13th, one of the biggest biker rally’s in Canada. (more…)

my daughter enjoying a day at the office with me…

Geez, I didn’t realize how long it’s been since I’ve made a post here.  I’ve been slacking.  But with this incredible weather, I’ve been spending a lot of time on the beach, so I haven’t had the time to write!  Maybe everyone else should follow suit 😉 (more…)
