Weekly Blend: November 29, 2013

Each week, the Weekly Blend will feature interesting links to real estate news, tidbits or topics of interest you can enjoy with your favourite cup of coffee. It may even become a great conversation starter at your next client meeting. Happy reading!

Here are my weekly picks:

Happy Thanksgiving to our American friends. This song, courtesy of Century 21, has very little to do with selling houses and very much to do with tryptophan – with a charitable angle as well.

And speaking of houses, these Halifax students are baking and building elaborate gingerbread houses for charity.

In 1993 The Pet Shop Boys told listeners to “Go West”…that sentiment still holds true today as Stats Can says Canada’s population continues to move to the left.

Offshore drilling is contributing to the revitalization of St. John’s, Newfoundland once downtrodden seaport.

Whether you’re a long-time viewer or new to the cobbles, perhaps you’d like to take a peek inside Ken & Deidre Barlow’s home at No. 1 Coronation Street.

Australian family sets world record for most Christmas lights. If they’re anything like my neighbours, they probably won’t take them down until just after Easter.

Step inside the home of former Birmingham Barons outfielder Michael Jordan. Amazing how much money a one-season player for a Double-A minor league affiliate of the Chicago White Sox can make.

Yonkers City Jail – with its prime waterfront location – is under a renovation. Going from prisoner space to arts space.

A decade later, Frank Gehry resubmits his design for three-acres in downtown Los Angeles.

Jonathan Baker, our former Speech Writer, contributed to the development of speeches, advertisements, and communications to our membership. Our staff knew him as the go-to guy at 200 Catherine for some comic relief. Prior to joining CREA, Jon worked in the radio industry in Ottawa. If you meet Jon, be sure to ask him to tell you about his encounters with many famous musicians while volunteering at a local music festival for more than 10 years.
