sold over asking

I've been sitting at my desk for 20 minutes or so, trying to figure out how to write this blog without it sounding like boring real estate advice. Stick with me - I think I've figured it out.

We used to go there when I was a kid - mostly because my dad always had an issue paying full price for anything and there were often big bags of... [read more]

A few weeks ago I was sitting on a VIA train, somewhere between Belleville and Cobourg, heading back to Durham Region from Montreal. My wife and I spent a few days there touring the sights, eating, drinking (more me than here) and trying to fit in as best we could as obvious anglophones. “Je m’excuse – je parle un p’tit peu de francais, mais je n’edute pas, uh, since, uh, l’ecole secondaire.” “That’s OK bro, you’re in...
