John and I tend to keep our donations quiet, but I thought it might be good to highlight some of the charitable organizations that we help throughout the year with the hope that it will bring more attention to their work. [Read more…]
We all know that Canada’s Birthday is coming up, because we all know July 1st is our annual celebration. What’s different about this year? Well, the City of Barrie certainly kicked off the long weekend in style with the Snowbirds last night! I hope you were one of the thousands of people who had a chance to get close enough to see the spectacular airshow last night.
There is always a need for volunteers and donations at Simcoe County’s many charitable organizations. I subscribe to the Women & Children’s Shelter of Barrie‘s on-line newsletter, and see that they are looking for some donations. Wouldn’t it be great if a bunch of us purchased a few of these items in this week’s grocery run! Donations for Women & Children go a long way. Here’s what it says:
To help us provide needed items for the women and children who use our services, we are in need of the following donations:
• grocery gift cards • baby formula (0-12 month) • bath towels • dish soap
• sippy cups for kids • kids bathing suits (size 3T/3X and up)
For hygienic and health and safety reasons
we accept donations of new items only.

Traditionally I’ve seen a lot of young adults move back in with their parents, or retired Moms and Dads moving in with their kids. Bungalows and 2 Storey homes are being retrofitted and renovated to take advantage of our new Second Suite rules so that the basement can be rented out. [Read more…]

Ever since the new year began I have been noticing significant changes in not just the real estate industry, but in other industries as well. I’ve tried to keep track of them so that I can share them with you. [Read more…]
Is your home HAUNTED? While we are certainly not qualified to answer that question, John and I have talked about this topic in the past couple of weeks. We have done some research to find out if there is anyone in Simcoe County that can help with the very real problem of ghosts and haunted happenings. [Read more…]
