You might have never thought about it.. but now you might be convinced.


Japan is trying to attract people from around the world!


Today’s average families income households will find it hard to keep up with today’s world.


I’m kind of aware of the average (median) house price in Canada.  I’ve never been able to afford a house.. well.. that’s a long story in itself.
