Foody Thursday – Chocolate and Walnut Pastry “Alissa”

I am in a baking mood again and who said I can't call a pastry my daughter's name? Here it is! The pastry is quite dry, crunchy and can be stored for over a week. But, it is so tasty, I highly doubt it will survive the whole week, even if you don;t have a sweet tooth!

Love, laugh, bake…

Horrible Real Estate Pictures or Do You See What I See?

My collection of horrible real estate pictures is growing and it is time to share. I am just wondering, is this just me or may be someone else would rather have no pictures at all when marketing a house for sale rather then have pictures shown below? Those are all active listings in Greater Toronto Area, not FSBOs, marketed by actual real estate agents. Come one folks, stop being such a disgrace to the proud profession of Realtor.


This is way more horrible then you might think…

Successful People from Our Neighborhood – Dave Cox, VP and Owner of Polaris Transportation Group

If you work in logistics and don't know who Dave Cox and Polaris Transportation are, there are only 2 options: you either haven't been in the field long enough or you are looking in the wrong direction. Dave hates being the center of attention and getting his permission for this publication wasn't easy. Running one of the largest and most successful transportation companies in North America, managing over 180 people, working 168 hours a week and always hiding from his well deserved round of applause – this is Dave!

Enjoy the story…

I have a serious intention to keep posting bright and colorful images till this boring winter finally leaves us alone. Honestly, I don't mind skiing or skating, once or may be twice. The Olympics are over today. Winter, it is time for you to go! I want my street to look like the pictures of Willem Haenraets!


And truly beautiful they are…

Spring is here, brains are melting…

Weather was just gorgeous today, what a relief! And then, something hits the fan!

sign of good luck

I was out with the client looking at some homes in Mississauga today. Quite residential street. Parked on the curbside (our brokerage security does not allow us to park on the driveway), actually right in the middle of the snowbank, thanks to my monster truck.
As we are coming from the backyard, my client keeps saying something about me having to bring him luck. Ok…Ok. Next moment all I see is this crazy lady in a van goes flying backwards out of her driveway across the street and right into left back corner of my poor truck. Bang!!! My eyes are popping out, I am dropping all my stuff in the snow. We are getting closer – there is a huge plastic piece laying on the road, looking like a part of my bumper. I pick it up, crazy lady jumps out of her car, grabs it from me and starts screaming that it fell off her car. "Sure thing, darling! – I say. – "You are driving Dodge, and this piece clearly says Nissan Xterra on it"
Long story short – it was a piece of rare wheel cover that fell off, and a few scratches. I bet you, if there was a sedan parked in my place – it would have been quite a mess.
Now, a question – when you break dishes it means luck is coming your way, so when you get cars smashed – can tiny little me even contain such a chunk of upcoming luck?

Truly yours Marina Gavrylyuk
