It has been a long time since I posted my thoughts – I almost forgot that I had a blog!!
What a winter! It started in mid November and it snowed again last night. Is this ever going to end?? The snowbanks where the plows have piled the snow are not quite as high as they once were – I can see over them now if that makes things better!
Interesting news lately – all sorts of nonsense going on with the Liberal Party. I got quite caught up in the JWR SNC Lavelin stuff – even watched the full 4 hours of her initial testimony. She is quite a lady. Just think what things would be like in Canada with somebody like JWR at the helm…..not that I’m hoping for any sort of Liberal election win, I just think she is brilliant, well spoken, extremely ethical and very strong. What more could one ask for in a Prime Minister? She just picked the wrong party. Now that she has been booted out of it, I can’t wait to see what her next moves will be (along with Jane Philpott) – maybe they will create a new party?
Real estate is completely crazy in Ottawa. There is a huge lack of inventory – if one can have a “huge” lack of anything! Buyers are lining up at nearly every listing trying to out-bid each other and potential sellers are sitting tight because, as buyers, they are having the same problems trying to find something to buy. Real estate agents are working twice as hard showing buyers many properties only to lose one deal after another. First-time buyers are finding it very difficult to get into the housing market so they are turning to entry level condominiums which, in turn, are becoming difficult to find.
My brother recently had a successful heart valve replacement and he is “on the mend”. He won’t likely catch up to the number of body parts I’ve had replaced, but a heart valve is pretty key to living a longer life!
Such is life in the nation’s capital!
So good to hear from you again, Sue. You are obviously well and keeping busy! Cheers, Gail
