Mr.CBB’s Weekly Blog Post Picks Dec 27,2012 – A Day Early

I’m a day early for the weekly blog post picks this week and that is because I have a special blog post planned for tomorrow. Don’t try and squeeze it out of me but I’ll tell you it’s one you won’t want to miss especially if 2013 is the year you want to make magic happen. Although many personal finance Bloggers took the week off from Blogging there were still plenty of excellent posts that ended up in my inbox. I thought I was the only one that was nutty enough not to take a day or three off but I guess I’m not. Now that Christmas and Boxing Day are over now is the time for us to plan our New Year’s Resolutions or at least goals for 2013. Last year we both quit smoking and we are still smoke-free today. I’m not sure what we will give up this year but I do know that either way giving up smoking was our all-time “want”  and “need” to do. Blog Post Picks Of The Week A big thanks goes out to these excellent Bloggers for sharing my page with their fans and taking the time out to drop in and […]

Mr.CBB’s Weekly Blog Post Picks Oct 26,2012

Each Friday I will Blog Mr.CBB’s Blog Post Picks of The Week. This may include posts and shares from Friday Previous up until Thursday the following week. I like to recognize those sites that genuinely enjoy the content of my blog and share it. I can’t believe it’s Friday already. It seems the more work I start doing outside and around the house the faster the week passes by. You can read what I’ve been up to each week at home and the blog each Saturday now with my new featured post “The Saturday Weekend Review“. Alternatively I would rather spend my time exploring the world with the lovely Mrs.CBB then cleaning the house. So,  unless I win this weekends Lotto MAX at $50 million, then that’s not likely to happen. This week has been a super busy week at the blog and as the blog grows so does the time it takes to get through all the emails and the social media mentions. I’m enjoying the new people I’m making friends with as I realize that learning from each other is more important to me than anything else. This week as you will see below I did plenty of  reading and commenting on […]

Mr.CBB’s Week in Review This week has been a relaxed but busy week for me as I finished putting up the Christmas lights. The only problem is that I am short around 6 feet so now I’m stuck looking for a 6-8 ft set that match. I went to Canadian Tire to check out their Christmas lights and nearly lost my gut when the sales woman told me 33 ft of the lights I needed cost $119.00. Are you bloody kidding me? I didn’t want to buy Christmas lights that are just getting put up on the shelves and have not even been in the flyer yet for sales. With my luck I’ll pay full price and it will go on sale the next week. That’s not so bad though as I could always return with the receipt for a product price adjustment but it’s just the time and gas that you have to factor in. I said to Mrs.CBB you watch if this last 6 ft of lights will cost me more than the 8 boxes or so that we got at end of season the past 2 years.  Gotta love it! I still haven’t finished the deck completely but the […]

Mr.CBB’s Week in Review This week flew by to be honest and it felt like I spent more time outside of the home than I did inside. It was so nice out that I went for a few evening jogs and we also walked around to take in the breathtaking views of the Autumn Colours on the trees in our neighbourhood. I was speaking to me mum and dad in the UK yesterday and they asked me if the trees has started to turn. That is one thing they  miss about their first visit to Canada back a few years ago. Next time they visit they want to do the Agawa Canyon Tour up in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario. It’s a one day tour into the heart of Canadian Wilderness and we all want to check it out. Have you done this? I’ve pretty much put the garden to rest for the winter and now have around 12 plants to bring inside (even that pretty fern we rescued from the side of the road early in the spring). I don’t know about you but it gets depressing when I have to put everything away but I know that the snow is just […]
