I blogged about Quinte real estate statistics in March, and apparently the local real estate market has been on a lot of people's minds. I received quite a few emails from people who asked for clarification about the numbers. Some of them were from people who have their properties listed for ...

It would seem that the weather is finally getting spring-like enough in the Quinte area for enthusiasts to break out their bicycles, mopeds and motorcycles. This is always a bit of a nerve-wracking time as drivers of cars aren't used to the presence of riders yet, and sometimes forget to chec...

There are only a few days remaining until the Zellers store in Trenton closes for good. Everything has to go. Zellers are closing their doors across the country and some lucky communities will get a Target store in its place, but Trenton isn't one of those lucky communities. The store will ju...

If you are in the habit of reading the news, it would be hard not to notice that there is quite a bit of commentary about the real estate market in Canada these days. Articles similar to this Financial Post article seem to be popping up on a daily basis and most of them have a cautiously pessimi...

   I'm sure that many Canadians have been reading the articles in the media about the state of the Canadian real estate market lately. There seems to be a lot of alarm bells going off. People are worried about the value of what usually amounts to their biggest investment, their homes. Corresp...

<body><p>Americans should really learn how to ask for help. I had no idea that conditions were so rough south of the border. This insightful North Korean documentary takes a good look at living conditions in the U.S.A. I was especially saddened to learn the fate of the Republican can...

It looks like Old Man Winter is having one last kick at the can in the Quinte area. Well, I hope it's one last kick. It's not too bad though, it's fairly warm out, hovering around the freezing mark, so it's not blustery. The snow is wet and heavy though, and when the sun goes down...

I like to go shopping once in a while, especially hardware shopping. Even if I don't really need anything, I'll quite often stop at the TSC store in Belleville if I happen to be passing by. The TSC Stores are a chain, and they bill themselves as The incredible Country Hardware Store, and ...

I have a tendency to become attached to certain things. It's a bit silly, but I think this phenomenon was explained quite well on the T.V. show Seinfeld, where Jerry had trouble throwing out his favourite ratty old T-shirt which he had named Golden Boy. I become a little attached to my jeans....

Unfortunately, it's a bit too cold to be making hay at the moment, but it doesn't mean that one can't get out and about when the sun shines in winter. I took a stroll down to the Bay of Quinte and found a whole bunch of people who love to get out in the winter. These people can sit in...

I will admit that I'm not terribly enthusiastic about winter. I don't ski, I'm not a good skater, I don't like being cold, and the grey sky and lack of sunlight can be depressing. I tend not to spend a lot of time outside. Yesterday was very pleasant though, it was sunny, there wa...

Occasionally I must drive to Toronto for a meeting or to attend one event or the other. While I love the little town that I live and work in, it sometimes can be fun seeing the sights and sounds of the city. This particular meeting was taking place in the area near the intersections of Yonge and ...

The Trenton Farmer's Market is the kind of place where a fellow like me loves to spend my dollars. The prices are great, the inventory is fantastic and the service is always friendly. It's one of those businesses that has a very loyal customer base, and for good reason. I'm not all th...

Thanks for all the emails. Apparently I have been missed on Active Rain and folks have been wondering what I've been up to. The truth is that I really haven't been up to very much. I have been working much as I regularly do, perhaps even harder than usual, I just seem to have developed an...

Where do people who live in cottage country own their own cottages? Bet you never thought of that question before. In the Quinte area we are surrounded by water on all sides. We have lakes, rivers, streams, and every type of fresh water body imaginable. You wouldn't think that folks who live ...

Here's some good news for all Canadians. The bad new is that our ranking in the visibility of our roadside signage dropped from 7th place all the way down to 12th, and that we are struggling to keep pace with Swiss in our availability of fresh baked goods in urban centres.

Monday was a sad day in Trenton. One of the town's oldest buildings in the downtown core burned to the ground. This was the third big fire in Trenton in less than a month, so the Quinte West Fire fighters have been getting a lot of experience lately. The building that burned down was the Sher...

Well, today is the day. I can't think of any other event that so poignantly reinforces my belief in the hopelesness of the human condition than an American election. When I was a university student I lived on campus in my first year. To my dismay, the fellow who lived in the room beside mine ...
