Did you know that with windows 8 and 10 you don't really need virus software. It already has it thanks to Microsoft. In fact you're better off not using it, because it will slow down your computer.

Home Phone:

What, you still have a home land line!

For the same money you can get a cell phone that works like a computer. You can now Block calls on the cell phone, which you could never do with the land line, and Bell Canada was never any help with spam calls. 

Contractors with the perfect Price:

I've seen how contractors get back at you for squeezing them out of a good pay cheque. Plumbing pipes in the wall are not glued, wiring screws on plugs never cranked tight. The list can be endless. If you try to get someone to work for free you can expect to pay later in damages by shoddy work.  They will continue to do shoddy work for as long as they're not getting paid.

Lowest Quote gets the Job:

So you get 10 quote: Some are half the cost, might even get one third the cost of the highest quote.

I did one guys tiles for his basement. First RED FLAG was most of the contractors before me were the low price-second rate handyman. The house had a lot of shotty work in it. Next time I see any house like that, I will just leave, not wasting my time with hagglers.

 Second RED FLAG was that he paid .99 cents for those tiles. The last tiler paid 11.00 for a Bag of tile mortar. Nothing good can come out of a job with cheap materials. Tiles will crack, mortar will let go of tiles and flooring. It's going to cost you more now. All that you paid for is going into the dumpster and then some. If you're not learning from the last time, you'll do it all over again thinking you were just unlucky with that last guy.

Third RED FLAG.  perfect Price Contractor - will use regular drywall for your shower. And will not buy and use a rubber shower membrane to create a leak proof shower. And you will let him continue Hoping and praying this is the guy to do it right this time Without questioning his work. Review YouTube videos to confirm quality work (3-4 should be good).

Contractor web pages: Not real jobs done. Not the same people coming to your house!

Most web page providers will use clip art. Standard professional photos on-line. If you were to do a Google search on that photo you might find 5-10 businesses also using that photo as if this is their work done. This is the quality you will get when in fact they never ever did a kitchen before and you're their first customer. Oh boy ... that is going to look nice...NOT. Go to:

Five Reasons Not To Buy An Extended Warranty

Buying a Home in Foreclosure: What You Need to Know

Solar power: Getting solar panels at retail prices like a $1.00 a Watt is a rip off.
So $1.00 per watt .This math should be what watts you get per day or hour.  But in Canada with all the clouds going by and all the issues. It still was for me a large fail. The little money I put in was still going to get no returns. I do have a customer how did get solar from contractor and gets a chq in the mail that pays for the 20,000 loan for installing it all. Power is so cheap and the parts so expensive how do you think that money is really coming back.
