Real Estate …. or Renovate?

Your home is your castle. But maybe your castle has looked a little rough lately. The towers need re-roofing, the drawbridge has a broken chain, and the moat smells a little, well, moat-y. So you look around and you think, do I spend my hard-earned gold on fixing all these issues, or do I just pack it all up and move to that new castle subdivision they’re building over in the next valley? Well, you’re not alone. It’s probably...

Hello Halloween

Halloween! I love Halloween! I know, I know, some don’t; there’s a divide between those who see it as a cool time of spooky movies, haunted house parties, awesome costumes, and delicious candy, and those who see it as too commercial, a money grab for dumb costumes and over-sugary treats, and a night where you have to turn out the lights and hibernate downstairs ’til the brats stop ringing your doorbell! Well, I’m in the former group....

Burning Questions?

Burning Questions?

  Ah fall. That contemplative time of year. That time of year when we begin to reflect, and start to prepare for the coming winter by taking care of those outside chores before everything’s buried under a blanket of snow. Yard work, particularly raking up the leaves, is one of the big tasks.

Stretching Summer!

  Being Canadian, we’re all pretty skilled players when it comes to moving successfully through the seasons. No, not just “winter and construction”, but all 4; winter, spring, summer, and fall. And since we’re now just beginning to see the first signs of transitioning from summer into fall, It’s likely that we’re doing everything we can to squeeze as much outdoor activity out of the beautiful late-summer weather.   Late summer golf is...

Let’s Go To The Fair

  It’s an event that’s come to signal the waning days of summer, and that the fall season is just around the corner. But, it does come with thrill rides, corn dogs, cotton candy, live music & livestock, jams, jellies, and pies, and of course, the demolition derby! The Orangeville Fair, a staple since 1858, is themed this year as “Homegrown & Handmade”. Taking place every Labour Day weekend, the fair is another of those...

Why We Should All be Shopping at Farmers Markets

One of the more interesting and fantastic things about living where we do, is that there’s so much natural beauty to be seen in our area.

These local farms produce everything from beef to vegetables, to pork and chicken, to fruit and honey, and it’s all available to us fresh...
