I love spending time with my family.  My parents, my mother-in-law, my brother and his two children, and of course, my wife, Helen, and my son, Alec. We don't have a large family, and we live further away than we would like.  Because of these two factors, we tend to love the time when we can all get together. My brother is always looking for "deals" ... ways to make your dollar travel further.  He purchased gift certificates on an internet auction website to Americana Resort and Spa (located on Lundy's Lane) in Niagara Falls.  Not satisfied with the savings realized, he further checked with the Americana Resort and Spa and booked three rooms during a promotion period.That was great news for my parents, my son, Alec, my wife and I, who received a "last minute" mini-holiday earlier this w...

Interesting article on the proposed Grand Resort in Niagara Falls. http://www.niagarathisweek.com/news/news/article/624700 $300-million Grand Niagara Resort clears major hurdle Paul Forsyth, Staff Ground-breaking of first phase of Falls project could be later this year Construction could begin on the first phase of the massive Grand Niagara Resort in Niagara Falls before year's end, with the project passing a major hurdle this week. On Tuesday, regional politicians approved changes to the city's official plan necessary for the project in the city's south end to move ahead. The thumbs-up by a regional committee on Tuesday, which will very likely be endorsed by the full regional council next week, is a major step forward for a plan that's been some five years in the making. Niagara Falls...

  "Great turnout at Bowl for Kids' Sake This year's Tim Hortons Bowl for Kids' Sake was a success, with approximately 80 teams participating." I have long been advocating more corporate involvement in community events in the Niagara Region, so it was great to see Tim Hortons sponsoring the Bowl for Kids Sake event. The following article gives more details and claims the event was a success. Great to see, I thought I would share: http://www.westniagaranews.ca/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=2466283

Niagara Falls at Christmas... For the YOUNG and the Young at Heart alike! The stuff memories that last a lifetime are made of... Visit it if you can, for the day, the weekend or a week, maybe longer? Do not miss this.  Niagara Falls and surrounding region is packed full of activities, events and adventure for people and families of all ages. WINTER FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS A 5 kilometre route along the Niagara Parkway and Dufferin Islands with 120 animated displays and over 3 million lights (my conservationist rants are temporarily suspended ;-) capped off with Fireworks over the Falls.  My wife and I enjoyed this long before we had our son, and now we enjoy it through his eyes also.  Other festival highlights include free concerts and comedy and theatrical presentations.  Though the displays...

The Bank of Canada cut its lending rate today by half point to 0.50%, the lowest level ever. The decrease was inline with most economists expectations. Various Canadian Banks followed this announcement by cutting their Prime Rate by 0.50% to 2.50%. The Bank of Canada also stated that its latest projections for the Canadian economy now look optimistic in the light of the latest economic data. Gina Burgio, Mortgage Agent FSCO Lic.

Wikipedi defines zoomer as - a baby boomer, born between 1946-1964, who leads an active, adventurous lifestyle. The term was coined by gerontologist Dr. David J. Demko in 1998 and contines to be used to profile Zoomers on Dr. Demko's web site at: www.demko.com. The traits associated with being a Zoomer are available on the Internet at: www.demko.com/zoomers.htm Dr. Demko creator of the catch phrase wants to know if you are a boomer or a zoomer?  Take his quiz http://www.demko.com/.  Moses Znaimer on the other hand has taken the simple catch phrase and expanded his multi media empire yet again.

  Today’s paper, Friday June 27 2008, St. Catharine Standard, Business Section, front page; Canadian housing boom over, analyst say. “The Canadian housing market has ceased to be a seller’s market in both the residential and the recreational sectors, meaning the boom experienced over the past few years is over, analysts say”. O.K. Niagara, time to wake up! The United States have been suffering through this downwards spiral in real estate for months. Now it looks like we may get hit too.  Lucky for us, the experts believe our “cooling off” will be nothing compared to that of our partners to the South.  Consider States such as, Florida, California, Texas and exurbs; properties that are outside the main core of a city. You can take charge of your home equity and protect it. Prices may be c...
