    Struggling financially and getting frustrated?

    Maybe I should be wearing a foil hat but I've been thinking about the entertainment industry. I include theatre, movies, pro sports, tourism and dining out. While they are enjoyable they are the easiest things to cut from one's budget when things get tight. I wonder how much of our economy is...

    Wasaga in the good old days, maybe not so good.

    Wasaga Beach

    One of our options in the past was to sell our Toronto home and with the proceeds buy two in Barrie. Live in one and rent out the other. Now we could only buy one and a half, if that.

    My wife keeps putting food in the beer fridge. Disgusting!

    Coronavirus

    There's a soft spoken poster from Florida on YouTube by the handle of Beau of the fifth column that does five or so minute clips of political comments. He points out fallacies and is therefore critical of Trumps policies. He doesn't push Biden. He made an interesting comment regarding the...

    Gold Stars Detailing and Auto

    While this seems to be a scam fest the get-it-cheap-coupons can be a drain on a business. The promoters take a cut and the business works cheap. It's OK if the cheap work is done when things are slow but a pile of one time bargain hunters can be a crush if the work has to be done when there is...

    Wasaga Beach

    I was talking to an out of towner a week ago and he indicated people were having problems getting full mortgages and insurance on properties that were bought well above market value. The money suppliers are wary of downturns. It all depends on how you want to or can wait. Houses in some parts...

    US is ******

    Trump has very clearly shown the problems with the US constitution, that it is outdated and subject to massive abuses. Every true American should demand changes but who is going to push for rule changes if the bent ones are letting you win? Neither Biden or Trump are good choices for POTUS but...

    Coronavirus

    When it's the public purse it can be very hard to go with anything but the lowest price. Theoretically the lowest bid can be taken and have lots of inspectors hovering over the job. Then the dirt bag contractor slows down the job for corrections and the project stalls. He gets extras to work...

    Coronavirus

    They're townhouses. All that is needed is to wipe down a few doorknobs. High rise I can understand with hallways, elevators, public stairways and entries.

    Coronavirus

    I'm not in total disagreement but also consider the student that doesn't have parents with deep pockets. He / She may be working in those restaurants and bars to pay bills. The ones that party hearty should have their health cards permanently stamped DNR. DNR = Do Not Resuscitate Easing...

    Coronavirus

    Not. a Covid issue but the same mentality, a friend's daughter a few years back got a $10,000 student loan. Basically it was a prepaid credit card. It was gone in two weeks buying new ski equipment and staying at a resort with her boyfriend.

    Coronavirus

    I may have been advised of a Covid money pit. A contractor I know told me that a housing project he services got a $250,000 Covid payment. It is a townhouse co-op or similar. I'm trying to figure what has changed in the operating costs of the complex.

    Coronavirus

    I bought a N95 industrial mask the other day for $26.00 + tax. (Atlas Machinery) It was for some dusty concrete work. By the way the N95 was originally designed for construction workers to prevent silicosis. I find the breathing easier and the fit tighter. I also bought a pile of the...

    Hot tub anyone?

    There are a lot of free patio stones on Craigslist. I will likely have some next spring. Screenings at a builders supply are about half the price of the big box stores.

    Hot tub anyone?

    I know next to nothing about hot tubs so have more questions than answers. The first is, would a shifting or settling base cause tub problems? How much do they want to excavate, frame, level, fill, compact the granular and set the pavers? I see a lot of labour and labour comes in two...

    US is ******

    My 2 cents: The USA consumer market has for decades been brain washing the US public into believing they are the best at everything in the world to the point of being royalty. Confident people spend without worrying about debt making for a very profitable marketplace. Now that the sham is...

    Coronavirus

    I've been noticing a lot of feeble older types not wearing masks properly. Masks are a nuisance but installing a ventilator isn't fun either. High risk and low compliance is a bad mix.
