Moon and Mount Cheam - Nov/2005
What's in a name? Well when that name or web address is http://www.chilliwackbcrealestate.blogspot.com/ it is clearly one that is way too long. Like they would say in the film "Mary Poppins" it is "something quite atrocious". Input the address incorrectly, and, you find website purgatory; you're somewhere but not where you want to be. Then, when you try to find your way out of website purgatory, there seems to be a million "Chilliwack" websites. Yes, we have all been there. It is also a mouthful to say let alone expect anyone to remember.
So this site has a new address, that is easier to recall, http://www.frasercheam.com/ . Area residents will recognize this word combination as a common description for the Upper Fraser Valley. In fact, all the communities that I work in as a local real estate agent representative are parts of a regional district once known as the Fraser Cheam Regional District before it was amalgated to become today's Fraser Valley Regional District. The old address of http://www.chilliwackbcrealestate.blogspot.com/ will work fine as well so you will not have to change your bookmark.
The masthead at the top of the page shows the connection between the Fraser River and Mount Cheam and they share a story to be written about in a later blog. It is one of my favourites.
Blonde Joke - New Windows
Last year I replaced all the windows in my house with that expensive double-pane energy efficient kind.
Today, I got a call from the contractor who installed them. He was complaining that the work had been completed a whole year ago and I still hadn't paid for them.
Helloooo... just because I'm blonde doesn't mean that I am automatically stupid. So, I told him just what his fast talking sales guy had told me last year, that in ONE YEAR these windows would pay for themselves! Helloooo... it's been a year, I told him.
There was only silence at the other end of the line, so I finally just hung up. He never called back. I bet he felt like an idiot.
