Christmas Shopping season is fast approaching, the malls seem to be more crowded than normal, even on weekdays (and our neighbours to the south will be kicking off the season with Black Friday). Here are some tips to help you stay safe and to prevent you becoming a victim of crime this Christmas season: If you use cash, obtain your cash from recognized financial institutions and avoid stand alone bank machines (which can be targets of various skimming devices).  Avoid carrying large amounts of cash. Know how to recognize legal tender (Canadian and American bills have various counterfeiting prevention features). Keep your wallets and purses safely secured at all times. When using credit and debit cards, always protect you PIN and shield entry (from prying eyes and/or surveillance device...

Here are some tips on how you can choose to be a much more ECO-FRIENDLY Shopper while at the Grocery Store: Go Local and Organic - Buying local not only reduces the carbon footprint of your purchase (by reducing the travel and processing impact on our planet), but also helps people in our local communities. Look first for products with a "Canada Organic" logo, then "USDA" organic, indicating that the product contains at least 95% organic ingredients (or vice versa if you live in the U.S). Try Meatless Fridays and/or Mondays - it can take up to 17 lbs of vegetable protein to produce 1 lb of meat protein. Eating more vegetarian dishes would reduce the strain on our environment. Plan Ahead - before you shop, consider what you have. This will reduce both excessive shopping and could help to...

Here are some tips that might help you reduce the energy you consume (and save you some money) in the kitchen: Go Paperless - Some newer washable viscose cloths (including those made with sustainable Bamboo) can soak up many times more liquid than paper towels. Use cloth napkins at the dinner table rather than paper. Take the Temperature - of your refrigerator... 35-38 degrees F (2-3 degrees C) is the optimal temperature range to reduce spoilage and wasted energy. Your freezer section should be 0 degrees F (-18 degrees C). Use a thermometer to ensure your fridge and freezer sections are at optimal temperature. Let your Leftovers Cool Down - before you refrigerating or freezing. Thirty minutes at room temperature will help in reducing the load on your fridge/freezer (be careful not to le...

Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada is poised to become the first major automaker to build electric vehicles in Canada. Toyota has confirmed that they will start assembling electric versions of the RAV4 SUV in Woodstock within months.  Partnered with Tesla Motors, a California based pioneer in electric automotive design and production currently builds high-end electric roadsters. The addition of the electric RAV4 should secure the positions of Toyota's 6500 workers in Cambridge and Woodstock. As regular reader know, I am passionate about Saving Our Planet, and believe that we, collectively can make a difference simply by making more informed and better choices and achievable changes in our daily behaviour.  I want to congratulate Toyota on this initiative as the RAV4 will join the Chevrol...

The Dietary Reference Intake for Calcium and Vitamin D from the Institute of Medicine, 2010 recommends: Not only do you need calcium to build and maintain teeth and bones, Calcium also plays a role in controlling blood pressure, helping your muscles work (including your heart), and may help in maintaining a healthy weight. Your body cannot make calcium so you need to get your calcium from either your food or your food supplements. Do not attempt to consume your daily requirement of Calcium at one time since we cannot absorb more than 500 mg of Calcium at a time.  It is important to note that the institute state daily upper level limits.  This seems to suggest too much Calcium is not recommended... Though supplements are acceptable, Milk and alternatives also provide other nutrients such...

In my humble opinion, AMC has a television masterpiece in its hands with The Killing, their entry into the murder mystery genre. This show, available in the U.S. and Canada on AMC, follows the murder investigation of Rosie Larsen, the daughter of Mitch and Stanley Larsen, in Seattle, Washington. The show not only focuses in on the grisly and grim murder investigation but also on the grief suffered by the Larsen family. The Killing, based on a Danish series Forbrydelsen, stays true to the original, focused on the interconnected worlds of parents, police and politics. The show is set over thirteen days, with each episode representing the next day in the investigation. The show delves into the flaws and secrets in each of the characters. Sarah Linden and Joel Kinneman are the detectives......

The history of Orangeville - as it can be traced from newspapers, assessment records, photographs, and census, church, and cemetery records - is one of early settlement that began in the 1830s, of steady growth to incorporation in 1863, and of economic expansion through the 1870s and 1880s. All this development culminated in the Town's being named the county seat for the newly incorporated County of Dufferin in 1881. Today much of this early history can still be seen along Broadway. Buildings such as the Town Hall, Fire Hall, Jackson Block, Sun Office, Ketchum Block, Fead Block, Greystones, and Public Library, all have stories to tell - about the founders, their interests, and the town they built. One of the earliest settlers we can identify is John Corbit who acquired land in the Brown...

Here is a re-cap of 3 Government actions to stimulate the housing industry in Canada... 1. The 2009 budget proposes to introduce a new non-refundable tax credit based on an amount of $5,000 for first-time home buyers who acquire a qualifying home after January 27, 2009. You are considered a first time home buyer if neither you nor you spouse or common law partner owned and lived in another home in the calendar year of the home purchase or in any of the four preceding calendar years. 2. The Home Renovation Tax Credit - the budget proposes to implement a temporary 15% home renovation tax credit to provide some 3 billion in tax relief to an estimate 4.6 million Canadian families. The tax credit will apply to eligible home renovation expenditures for work performed, or goods acquired, afte...

Mandatory energy audits on home sales wrong, Toronto's real estate agents say. In the wake of a new municipal land-transfer tax and unmoored by a sinking economy, Toronto real estate agents are bracing for a new storm on the legislative horizon: Mandatory energy audits for home sales. Ontario Minister of Energy and Infrastructure George Smitherman's proposed Green Energy Act, which was introduced to the Ontario legislature Monday, contains loosely defined "mandatory conservation and energy efficiency practices" that would cost home sellers about $300. But with homes lingering on a stagnating market, and average sale prices dropping throughout the GTA, even the distant possibility of one more fee or one more bureaucratic obstacle, leaves real estate agents feeling seasick. "It's not so m...
