Fake Home Rental or For sale Scam

It should be noted that there is a lot of scams online going around. One is an outfit that says certain properties are for sale when they aren’t. I found this out with my son’s help, as this company has my house for sale or rent online when it isn’t. We have had people calling every day asking us if it is for sale. So a person has to be careful nowadays. This company that is doing this is based in Spain. They probably can’t do anything, but one should be wary just the same. Thought I would let folks know. And in case you see this add …. Our Home Isn’t For Sale!! LOL. Take care and stay safe. GW

One of the best golfers of all time

I thought you might like to watch this fellow make history. He has been struggling for the past year or so, but he made up for it yesterday. Just shows what a few of us older fellers are made of. You never want to count yourself out. In saying all that … I hope he has had the vaccine shot. Sheesh! Great Man.

Sad Day for Canada

What a shame this is. But it is what is happening here in Canada. We don’t want to become self efficient. Our Powers That Be feed off these Pharmaceutical Companies from abroad when we should be doing it right here in Canada. It’s a sad day for the people of Canada.

The Masters

So far it’s been a great game at the Masters Golf Tournament this year. My wife and I have been enjoying it for the past three days. Right now it is anyone’s game, as there are four tied for second place. And along with that, Corey Conner’s, our very own here in Canada made a hole-in-one. .
