It's beginning to look a lot like...
... A great time to sell!Posted: November 23, 2012 at 4:30 PM by Brian Beezley
I’m looking out my office window at a dry, snowless street. Sure enough the heavy snow from last week is gone and it’s back to hoodie weather. I know it won’t last; even now heavy, grey clouds are slowly sliding across the sky blocking the shining sun. Winter is a fact of life in Canada. We can’t escape it, no matter how much we’d like to sometimes.I’m not complaining or even saying that winters in Canada are horrible. I’ll be the first to admit that Canada has 4 distinct seasons. They are: read more
At the going down of the sun
and in the morning we will remember them.Posted: November 09, 2012 at 4:14 PM by Jonathan Feist
“At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.” ~Binyon Each year in November, Canadians take a day to remember those that have served their countries and to remember those who died to give us the freedoms that we enjoy today.

I never want to look at a photograph from the past and think, “What was I thinking when I wore that?”How often have you looked back on your past outfits and wondered what was going through your head when you wore them. Bell bottoms, giant collars or skinny jeans. It’s just a matter of time before the clothes that seemed so in style at the read more
The look you're going for...

On my way to lunch yesterday, I passed a car that had eyelashes. I kid you not – Eyelashes. You may have seen them as well, or perhaps you’ve seen ‘Carstashes,’ the more-manly equivalent. Don’t get me wrong, here. I might not be ordering myself a set for the Jeep, but I certainly don’t mind you decorating your vehicle with them. Cars are big purchases, but not particularly big investments. No one buys a used Ford Festiva with the hope to build equity; and while there are a few class read more
