Anybody out there got a spare 6 million dollars in your pocket.  If so, you can buy our Five Seasons Resorts Park.  It's officially for sale again as of 19 days ago and here's the Remax Real-estate ad.....Five Seasons Real-estate Ad .  When I looked at this ad I couldn't believe how poorly it was done.  I have never seen an ad this bad.  Look at the photos, they're terrible.  The description of our Park is not only inaccurate and confusing, it is also just plain bad with the wording poorly thought out.  Remax is a professional company so I don't know what happened here.  But anyway, aside from the crappy ad, this puts we the residents back on an unsure footing again regarding the future of our Park and our time living here.


The town of Bayfield is proposing a complete make-over of their main street.  Here is a very well done video of those proposed changes.  Bayfield Main Street Revitalization Project.  I haven't taken many pictures of the new Bayfield Bridge construction lately simply because the bulk of construction at the moment is taking place down at the unseen river level.  Maybe if I think of it Pheebs and I can take a little hike down along the river bank to see what we can see. 


Morris had been playing golf for years, and he had the finest equipment, but his technique never improved a bit.  As his friend watched, he teed up at the first hole and promptly drove a brand-new ball into the woods. On the second hole, he drove another new ball into a lake. On the third, he lost a new ball in another part of the woods.  “Why don't you use an old ball?” his friend asked.  “I've never had an old ball,” Morris said.


What do you call the boss at Old McDonald's Farm?  The CIEIO!



  1. First, I decided to try out Chill on Sirius. I am listening to it now. Interesting change of pace from the programming I usually listen too. Bummer on the park. Here, in the not-so United States of America, many states have laws easing the purchase of a Park by the owners. I happen to live in one whereby in 2006, 100 of us bought the park-We are the owners now. I would suggest you find someone in your park with, ideally, financial background and look into it; it's not always easy, but it can be done, and it is worth it. We used ROC, and although not Canadian, they were very helpful in assisting us in buying our park. I was on the Park board for several years and dealt with ROC leadership a lot, and I know they, as a non-profit with a sole mission to help renters become owners, would talk to a rep of your park and provide free guidance. We no longer have to worry about the land being sold underneath us, and it is well worth it. The ROC website is:

    I looked at the listing and was kinda blown away by the photos. I didn't realize you could still buy those disposable film cameras anymore! Other than that, it looks like a fantastic park with a lot of potentials. Just find the right neighborhood and get them to lead the effort.
    Speaking of photos....just an hour ago, after spending way, way too much time reading and watching reviews; I bought the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS100 Camera. Best Buy had this once $700 camera for $400, and 2020 consumer reports had it as a best buy even at $700. Looks like way too much camera for me but I really want some sharp pictures on my 4K TV screensaver.

  2. Could use a little chill here. I'd invite you all to move here, but we got a bit of a fire situation going on now in Clackamas County, Wilsonville, Oregon. I'd visit my daughter in the Oakland, California, hills, but "wash, repeat, rinse." Oh, well.

  3. Those are certainly poor pictures in your park ad. Hardly what you'd expect for a 6 mil place. Maybe they will be updated as time goes by.

  4. Average household income, along with average age of residents, caught my eye. Definitely not the USA.

    1. Jerry, look further down and click on household income: it actually is $30,000,-$59,000 combined income. Kelly

  5. Too bad they didn't hire a real photographer - you Al - to take the photos.

  6. Our town wants to close down one of the main streets in order to allow restaurants there to have outdoor seating. I counted...there are 18 restaurants on it. Hmmm.....

  7. At a price tag of 6mill. I think you may rest assured that nobody will show up to purchase your park. Especially if the ad is done so poorly.
