Home of the Week and a blast from the past.

This week's "Home of the Week," is on sale for $3.9 million and I actually love it.  Mind you it doesn't even have a garage and is a townhouse (terraced property).

This week's "Condo of the Week," costs $700,000 and is not my cup of tea.  I am not a fan of concrete floors and open duct work, but that's just me!

This week's "Cottage of the Week," is on sale for $4 million and it does include an island for that price.  I love the cottage it is gorgeous and I wouldn't change a thing.  Just a shame it's not on the market for $400,000, then I would be more interested in it!!

Gill's Cottage of the Week, is on the market for $389,900  It's on the Bruce Peninsula overlooking Georgian Bay.  Now they do get some stormy weather up there, but the views from this place must be stunning when a storm comes in over the lake?  This is the type of cottage we rent when we go down south.  Will say though I am not 100% sure if I could live in this type of home forever, as those log walls get very dusty and full of cobwebs.........well the rental places do!!

I am painting some more trim so I have the music on.  I heard this song:



Now if you are British you will immediately recognize this as the theme song from the Benny Hill show.  I had no idea this was an "actual song."

Benny Hill was a British comedian who's antics would not be "politically correct," nowadays but back in the day was classed as very funny.  He even had a number one music hit in 1971:


and here is a clip of what he used to do!!  Please be aware it's sexist and not politically correct.....

I like the home of the week too. It's very classy. The condo looks like a war ship inside - nasty. Good old Benny Hill, dated but very funny!

Ah, Benny Hill, remember the show well. Not sure he would get away with some of the things he did now.

Gill, I love your choice of cottage of the week. Benny Hill. Oh my, I haven't seen that show in years. My Dad loved it! Have a great weekend. Hope Dh is doing better.

Home of the week -- yes please!

Benny Hill -- used to watch him ALL the time, loved the show and would even stay up late to watch it for that is when it came on. Yes, the music is readily identifiable. His show was one of the first British shows I watched regularly except for Masterpiece Theater. I used to watch a show called "Home Sweet Home" or something like that about a couple who was trying desperately to empty next and their kids just wouldn't stay gone! Now, of course, I have Acorn and British TV is about all I watch.

Some hefty prices on some of those homes! I'd be searching for "affordable home of the week" :)

Harvey used to watch Benny Hill all the time. He really enjoyed it.

God bless.

Those were the days when we used to roar with laughter at Benny Hill. hocking stiff really. That tiny man was always in the show, and it always ended with a speeded up chase of some kind..... I still giggle when I see the show.

I do like the home of the week...and would love to have some of the furniture in it. But really, like your home of the week best of all, but not sure I would want all that wood all the time.
