Calgary Apartments

Looking for apartment or house for rent in Calgary? Look no more with  Calgary apartments for rent.

My co-teachers, Purva and Preti  both have Canadian residency even while they work in America.  They cannot make up their minds where to live permanently. When they left the country –India- they decided to apply residency in Canada because they like the privileges accorded to Canadian citizens, esp. the medical benefits. But a job opportunity in the US was available, so they moved to the US and retained the residency in Canada. A common friend of ours, Deepa, decided to push through with the citizenship in Canada and left US. She and her family moved to Calgary and have found a delightful house for rent.

I spoke to her some time back and she said they have no regrets in moving to Calgary. They opted to live in the city (instead of the rural areas) and enjoy the amenities offered by a typical metropolis.   They can't help but talk about this move. Their living a good life -what  with low cost of living, low crime rate, job opportunities and most of all, A+ medical benefit. They did not even have to wait long to find some apartments for rent. All they have to do is rely on an online locator and several options were presented to them –apartment, loft, condo, house. These made things easier. It even saved them time and effort to shop on wheels.

Support Walgreens

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


My carpool friend’s eight year-old son has to be rushed to the hospital every time he has asthma attacks. It has been difficult to know when the attacks will happen. Most often than not when my friend and her husband sense that their son might have an episode (especially on weekends when the doctors might not be available)  they call up Walgreens right away for Apoorv’s asthma meds. In minutes, the meds are ready for pick up. Walgreens has always been everybody’s friendly community pharmacy.


But recently, Poorva told me that it isn’t the case with Walgreens anymore because Walgreens and Express Scripts contract expired on December 31, 2011.  This is a sad loss for my friend and her family. Now instead of just calling for Apoorv’s meds, they need to drive farther to buy the meds, not to mention the inconvenience of battling with the hectic rush hour traffic just to get to the pharmacy in time as oppose to Walgreens 24 hours pharmacy.


To help ease their customer’s burden, Walgreens is  offering a special discount on annual membership for its  Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens. For $10 a year, a family membership covers everyone in your immediate family, including a spouse, dependents 22 and younger and pets. Individuals may join for $5. Join and receive discount prices on your prescriptions. 


Other benefits include: Savings on more than 8,000 brand-name and all generic medications, discounts on flu shots, pet prescriptions, nebulizers and diabetic supplies 
Bonuses when you purchase Walgreens brand products and photofinishing services.

Being a Texan

Authored by Rickey Combs

Being a Texan all my life meant I knew I was going to stay here. After college I didn’t even entertain the idea of moving anywhere else so I landed a great job just a few hours from my parent’s house. I love being self sufficient and finding out things like texas electricity providers in Spearman on my own – it’s nice not to have to ask dad for everything. I love it here and I feel really connected to this state and I’ve got big plans for this little job. Once I get good at sales I’m planning on branching off and starting my own consulting company and I know it could work because I’ve been doing market research practically my whole life. I love being in a place I love and I know that no matter how great the job offer was I would have hated living somewhere like New York City. It’s important to me to be close to family and In a place with good weather!
