Let it Snow…Let it Snow – To Almaguin We Will Go!

November snowComplain, as we all do, the white fluffy stuff has come early and in abundance keeping us fit at the end of a shovel.  with the cold temperatures many ski hills have opened and it has been the earliDogs sleepingest in the past 30 years.  My dogs have made the best of the snow racing  in a crazy pattern around the flower bed, jumping over the piles of snow made by the snowplow and just enjoying a playful romp outside.  After they come inside it is a different story …sound asleep drying out on their blankets
An update on the construction on the business street in Burk’s Falls.  The freezing construction pavementtemperatures have not deterred the diligent workers from braving the cold paving the street and pouring concrete for the sidewalks.  Out in front of our business is not yet completed but will be wonderful when these improvements are done.  Right now there are heated construction frost tarpsfrost tarps on the sidewalks so please Do Not walk on them (extremely slippery)  walk on the street and go through the pathways made for pedestrians to the businesses.  Our back parking lot and back door is open for our clients so they can come in and do business avoiding the uneven ground coming through the front of the building.  As a motorist be careful of pedestrians and slow down going through the Village.  The construction has definitely been an inconvenience but so worth the end result of our main street showing that Burk’s Falls is an up and coming community soon to be the shining star of the Villages of Almaguin.  Residents will be proud and businesses will again flourish…. a win win for us all.  This first step will encourage commerce and local business to improve their facades, planters and gardens and make it appealing to all who walk through our Village to shop and do business here.
fowler logoA shout out to Fowler Construction for their tireless diplomacy and consideration in dealing with the endless stream of disgruntled people……I hope they know how much they are appreciated doing a job that has to be done.  The day to day life for us, in the short term, is a little more difficult but necessary to achieve a major community improvement……and yeah I admit I do a little complaining too.
Although it has been a bit more difficult for our clients to come into the office the market continues to be active.  Technology plays a huge part in promoting our properties so if you are looking to list through the winter months please give us call and get a jump on moving this spring.  Here is a link to my newest type of promotion I am doing for some of my clients.  933 Ferguson Road – Home, Waterfront & Acreage
Here are a few more photos of our winter beauty – worth the drive!

 

Almaguin Remembers

Almaguin Remembers

poppyToday is Remembrance Day and throughout the Villages of Almaguin services are being held for those lost and those still serving to keep Canada safe.  As Canadians we are very well respected by other countries not only as allies in the time of war but for our ed and katrina remberancediplomacy in times of peace.  As time passes the “great wars”  are not as remembered buy the young and it is our obligation and duty to educate our children and grand children about the sacrifices made by everyone.  The soldiers who fought, the people displaced because of war all have suffered and the endless political rhetoric that continues seems to keep forming and fueling today’s atrocities all over the world.  It rests with edward cadetall of us in society to change and help our children understand conflict resolution, managing to accomplish it without injury and destruction to property, land  and life.  We need to be diligent in keeping the minds of our youth open, accepting, kind and teach them the negotiating tools to deal with tomorrows conflicts better than we ourselves have done in the past.  All that change can not happen, unless in our everyday lives we show youth by example, how we deal with views other than our own using with respect and kindness rather than judgment and animosity.  Start resolving disagreements at home and work without violence and instill empathy in our youth for the plight of others.  A strong people Stand Up for others and Stand Down on judgment.vimy.jpg
