New photos

It's been quite a while since my last post. Without going into a lot of detail, my life has taken " a thumpin" of late and I really have been a little off track. I'm not out of the woods yet, but it isn't all doom and gloom. I would really appreciate any of you who read this to put in a word with the guy upstairs to get me through the end of the year without anymore drama.








These are our dogs Bert and Chet. Chet is a new addition to the family. He's a little bit of a punk at times, but we've got him behaving himself for the most part.







This is my son, Derek. he "My Prince! My seed!" (he hates it when I say that, which is exactly why I tease him like that). He just came back from Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp, which is a music camp over in the Muskegon, MI area. He plays the trumpet.



This is the shell at Blue Lake, where the orchestra gave their final concert after a week of practicing.

Awwwright! New post!

Okay, first things first, I got my friend to take advantage of an impending property bubble then. We selected a property which was freehold (you can hold it perpetually). Then, he took a 30-year bank loan. He also took advantage of a government 'social security' type scheme and took money out of his 'pension'. CPF.

The conditions were entirely local.

Two plus years later, his well-chosen property went by by about $400,000. And that is excluding the monthly rental of $3000 which he collected from his tenant. That went somewhat to servicing his loan.

It's not unlike the real estate bubble in the USA and London.

Cool pics, Tim. I had locks like your son way back when, and he looks about as excited to be photographed as me at that age. Give your good doggies a pat for me, and keep the shiny side up!
