Title Transfer

November 22nd, 2006

In real estate transactions, assets such as property are often transferred into an adult child’s name when grandpa or grandma dies. I just had a conversation with a Coquitlam client who underscored the importance of seeking legal advice to time this so as to reduce the impact of capital gains, property transfer and probate taxes. With lots of do it yourself kits out there, people often try ...

Do You Know YOUR Talent

November 15th, 2006

When I attended the Ubertor “meet up” Justin was there offering to capture and email anyone there with their signature. This seemed ‘cool’ so I lined up to do my B.C. When I did my signature a few others ‘oohed’ and ‘aahed’ at my ‘John Henry’ and asked me to do their signature. I ‘flashed back’ to Miss Reynolds at Lonsdale Elementary School making us practice for hours ...

Ubertor

November 9th, 2006

Monday my web service company held a “meet up” so some of us interested in websites, email and other techie stuff could meet “real time”.

A short but informative talk on g-mail brought me up to speed on this email server  - then some informal introductio ...
