Guess at IT! Week 4 - Answer, Captain William Richards

>> Friday, March 26, 2010

Guess at IT! Week 4: IT went from general store to warehouse - whose? You already know that it was once a general store that served locals faithfully in St. Eleanor's for many years (thank you, Mr. William Reid) and now you know that it was purchased by Hon. William Richards. In fact, its "Heritage Property Name" is "Richards Warehouse" and owned by him from 1872-1913. In his lifetime he was a renowned shipbuilder in both Summerside and Egmont bay; of course, we already mentioned he married Susan Yeo; and he even went on to serve many fruitful years in parliament - as did his sons, James and John, after him.

Guess at IT! Week 3 - Answer: James Yeo

Guess at IT! Week 3: ITs owner's father-in-law was PEI famous. Who was he?
Famous, famous, famous, that is! James Yeo was known to be a gruff, intelligent, demanding and business savvy man. The famous shipbuilder, store-owner and "richest man on the colony" was also stringent about who his daughters could marry. One of the Lofts at 359 Water's original owners, a captain and business partner, was privileged enough to married James Yeo's daughter...but we won't let this man's name slip yet...because his name is the answer of next week's trivia!

Captain Yeo built his famous homestead in what is now Tyne Valley area, on land he himself named "Green Park". He was one of the first to bring his shipbuilding endeavors not only to the Island, but also to Summerside. Have you been to his house? Visit his and come back to live in IT!

Guess at IT! Week 2 - Answer: St. Eleanor's

>> Tuesday, March 16, 2010

Guess at IT! Week 2: IT once served folks WHERE before being moved closer to rail and water access? For many years - certainly from the 1870s, if not before - it was located at the St. Eleanor's corner (on the quadrant occupied by the present municipal building) where it served as a general store operated by William Reid.

Live Freely In Order To... "Add Fun to Your Future" says Magazine

>> Monday, March 15, 2010

We loved this article from Celebrated Living Magazine, telling us that we can be anything we want to be when we "grow up" and encouraging us to "add fun to [our] future". At the Lofts at 359 Water, begin LIVING freely so you can follow those dreams!

Quotes from the article follow. Feel free to be inspired!

A funny thing happened on the way to a lazy retirement consisting of watching grass grow for Robert and Patricia Gussin. They had done all the right things. Robert had retired as chief scientific officer of Johnson & Johnson in 2000. Patricia also retired after a long career in research-and-development positions at McNeil Consumer Products and Johnson & Johnson Consumer Pharmaceuticals. Then, in 2002, on a trip to New Zealand, Patricia asked, “Wouldn’t it be fun if we owned a vineyard?” And so they bought one. A few years later, they bought a second, and today they own about 70 acres, producing 200 tons of grapes annually, enough to make around 200,000 bottles, split among sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, and pinot noir. They now spend nearly five weeks a year in New Zealand overseeing their vineyards, and they say they would spend more time there except that in 2006, they started Oceanview Publishing, a publishing house that now releases about a book a month and has multiple authors under contract. This is clearly not your father’s retirement.


“It’s not a case of retirement getting redefined. That has happened; it has been redefined,” says Dennis Niewoehner, 64, a retired Colorado real estate developer who has authored The Transition: Winning the 4th Quarter of Life. “What Baby Boomers want in retirement is life fulfillment.”

What Do You Want to Be When You Grow Up?
Stumped about your interests? Keep thinking. “There is something everyone wants to do once they are retired,” assures David Corbett, author ofPortfolio Life: The New Path to Work, Purpose, and Passion After Fifty. He adds that he has worked with clients who, after long corporate careers, have reinvented themselves as sheep farmers, cheese makers, nonprofit-agency executives, even world-peace advocates. The exact choice does not necessarily matter. What does matter is picking the next act that “is fulfilling to you,” says Corbett.

Another point to ponder: Are you ready to live to 100? Just when you start thinking about a long retirement, suddenly it may be getting even longer. “The 100-plus age group is the planet’s fastest growing,” says Dr. Eric Plasker, a Georgia chiropractor and author of The 100 Year Lifestyle. “85,000 people in the U.S. are over 100, and none of them planned to get there. You may not have a choice about getting there. Your 100th birthday just may show up one day.”
