How to Change Your Habits in Incremental Time Periods

Its become apparently obvious over the past six months that we tend to write more articles during the colder winter months whilst we are trapped indoors more than when those beautiful spring days POP UP in mid-April and quickly yield into long gorgeous summer months of June, July and August. Anyone who clicks on the…

Review of 2022 Aspirations, Goals and Monthly Achievements

At the end of Twenty Twenty-One, we reviewed our intended goals with our actual goals to see how that comparison panned out. What we realized was we wrote a list of New Years Resolution goals and by the middle of the year we totally forgot to check-in with what those goals were or to see…

Black Swift Winery of West Kelowna British Columbia

Shauna smiled at the host then hopped into a tirade of where we started our morning down in Penticton, how we got lost looking for breakfast but had a great time wandering around near the shore line then found a nice host down at Beaumont Family Estate Winery whom recommended we come up here to…

What Aaron Learnt Today about the Home Buyers Repayment Plan

About a year ago, some of you may know that Aaron and his wife Shauna bought their very first townhouse! Those two kids were SUPER EXCITED to get their grubby little mitts on a property which they could call their own. Of course with any shiny new toy they were unsure what they should do…

Tonight is Our Honeymoon, An Upgrade Would be Nice!

For nearly a decade whenever we found ourselves in Penticton, British Columbia or nearby we talked about staying the night at The Penticton Lakeside Resort but we always found a better deal elsewhere in a nearby accommodation at a vineyard or guest lodge. However on this particular road trip I had gone past windshield concentration…

Walking Castlegar for Indian Cuisine

While checking into the hotel for the evening we were chatting up the desk clerk about good restaurants within waking distance of the hotel. “The Buddha Bistro is a delicious place, can’t go wrong there ” she says as I picked up a printed menu on the counter top. “I recall it being pretty good…

The Southern Route into Beautiful British Columbia

Departing from the Bomber Museum we skirted out of town without stopping for ice cream or antique shopping, next time through I thought. “Where do we connect to highway 3? Is it at Ft McLeod?” I say driving 50 kmph thru town. She grabs her phone and starts punching in information to see what the…

Intermission Between Rounds at The Vic Park Classic Tournament

Whilst Brendan and Bryce were off using the restroom, Curtis and I wandered over to the first tee pad when I made a comment about some brightly coloured clothes sitting on a park bench. He replied with “Oh yeah, they are,” followed by a small giggle. Upon reaching the tee pad, Curtis set down his…

Lunch and Nine Holes of The Vic Park Classic Tournament

Twenty-two minutes after Round 1 concluded I pulled into the parking lot of a nearby Mexican restaurant called Mucho Burrito to buy a taco salad for lunch. Reading through the menu I changed my mind and went with a regular sized burrito stuffed with black beans and every vegetable they had on the menu plus…

Why Invest in the Entire Stock Market?

Investment journey… we all have one or at least we should all have one. Initially my investment strategy started at the age of 19 when I had inherited $5,000.00 after my grandfather had passed away. He held a life insurance policy for myself, of course this never came to fruition. But upon his passing I…

The Truth About Moose Jaw’s Underground Tunnels

To begin the excitement today we booked two tours, The Chicago Connection about prohibition in the 1920’s and the famous Chicago gangster Al Capone. Then a break until we went underground again to learn about Bunker 24, the cold war and the fight against communism. The first thing you need to understand about these tours…

An Eruption of Laughter and the Sweet Surrender of Serendipity

Whilst the hostess set down the menus and silverware wraps we tugged on our zippers pulling apart the sides of our jacket, Shauna drew her arms out then snuggled up inside the jacket while I tossed the jacket, toque and gloves into the awaiting seat next to mine then sat down. Neither of us spoke…

The Taco Future Is Nigh

Okay okay, I’ve had my Taco for like almost 2-years, and I’m already contemplating the revolution of its future with all the bling bling of EV tech going on. Honestly, its a bit overwhelming when you compare an ICE Taco MSRP to say a Rivian RT1 MSRP but hey, I suppose by 2030 the ICE…

Driving Into the Unknown; Viewing Property in Northeast Edmonton

Sitting back in the oversized micro-leather black chair it facing our back patio door and a wide bay window overlooking the sparse trees along the fence. My face twisting into and out of perplexing contours and configurations when my wife interrupted my thoughts with, “hey what has you perplexed this morning?” This unexpected interruption pulling…

Show Homes in SW Edmonton

After my initial review on Monday of the Altius property that Shauna had found, I spoke to her about the other property I found a mere five minutes away from that location on the SW side of Edmonton. We determined Friday night would be best for a viewing and comparison of the show homes. Briefly…

An Unexpected Stop in Glenridding

Right blinker on, I pulled the steering wheel turning south and drove 500m to the parking lot yanked another right and headed for a parking space. There they stood five stylish townhomes standing side-by-side all assembled in their brightly painted facades. Locking the truck, I nearly sprinted across the lot to the front door. Hand…
