Moving is not always fun or easy

By Office Space Toronto In standard3rd August, 2010

This past 4 days have been crazy for me, not only did I need to find a new place to live, but I had to find a place within hours and not days due the urgency of my living situation changing. I was fortunate that a friend knew of a place that was available, that

As I have mentioned in a previous blog, I have not been spending much time in my downtown office space this week and have instead been playing tour guide to a visitor from Australia. Some of my clients see this as me taking a vacation and they are contacting me by my cell when they

You can fight City Hall, but they make it hard to

Last Sunday I went down to my downtown office space to take some preliminary test shots of the boardroom and the seminar training room. On my way in I stopped at McDonalds on Front Street  for an Egg McMuffin. This McDonalds does not have a drive through or a parking lot, so I pulled down the side street and

This past two weeks I have been helping play tour guide for a gentleman from Australia. One of the things he wants to do during his last week in Canada is a High Tea. Upon a google search, I found that there are actual places in Toronto that do High Tea. What amazed me the

I was in my downtown Toronto office space over looking Harbourfront and the Toronto Islands on Sunday afternoon.  I had to pick a file and wait for a call on my cell phone in order to arrange the drop off of the file.  While I was waiting for the call, I decided to look out

Playing Tour guide to visiting friends

By Office Space Toronto In standard16th July, 2010

It is amazing how one forgets some of the amazing attractions there are in and around downtown Toronto. Places we may or may not have ever visited, or even knew were there. Sometimes we take these places for granted and never actually go to them, until we get a visitor from out of town. This

World Cup Finals was the buzz in the office today

By Office Space Toronto In standard12th July, 2010

World Cup Finals was the buzz in the office today, not vuvuzelas. All the talk around the coffee machine at my Toronto office space today seemed to be about the World Cup final and the Spanish win. While some office space tenants were talking about this octopus that had predicted the winners of  all the important
