Luckily I was at home and had the help of my neice and her boyfriend to help me with cleaning up my basement after the sump pump could not keep up with the intensity of the rainfall. The storm system just could not handle the amount of rain, causing many basements in my neighbourhood to be flooded. If this happened ...

While visting Pier 4 the other day I noticed an older style Trolley (without the tracks) travelling around the waterfront. At first I wasn't sure if the trolley was rented out for a wedding or an event or if this was a secret local hamilton attraction. I soon found out that like the various tours that take residents and tourists through the downtown core of Toronto and other major cities across ...

Pier 4 - A great (cost free) place to take the family

While babysitting my almost 2 year old nephew over the weekend I decided to take him to Pier 4 park in Hamilton. Having not been there for a few years I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. I was delightfuly surprised by the park and what it had to offer. The park has numerous trails to walk as well as some great picnic areas where you can have some lunch and take in the awesome views of the boats ...

Sealing Your Driveway

Sealing your driveway is not an absolute necessity to most homeowners, however, there are a few things to consider before you write it off all together.
