Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone! We could all use a bit o' Irish luck these days. Here are some fun facts about everyone's favourite green holiday:

  1. St. Patrick's Day is an official holiday in Ireland! Banks, schools and businesses all shut down so they can celebrate this fun holiday.
  2. "Though we've come to associate kelly green with the Irish and the holiday, the 5th-century saint's official color was "Saint Patrick's blue," a light shade of sky blue.

It typically describes a fixer-upper or some sort of neglected house (think: diamond in the rough) that features quality, well-made construction – hence the good bones meaning."

A home having good bones is a great thing! You certainly shouldn't buy a home with bad bones. However, you need to proceed with caution. A home having good bones can sometimes be another way of saying that the home needs a lot of work; the bones are good,…

Daylight Savings is this weekend, so don't forget to spring forward!

In the meantime, here are some fun facts about Daylight Saving Time:

  • "Benjamin Franklin did not invent it. He did write a letter to the editor in 1784, complaining about people who sleep past sunrise. 'Let cannon be fired in every street, to wake the sluggards,' he wrote." (CBS News)

He reasoned springing the clocks forward would allow more daylight for bug collecting—along with other evening activities. The clocks could be switched back in the winter when people (and bugs) were less likely to be found…
