TRU-LOCAL

I am back to enjoying organic, free range, poultry, wild fish like salmon, scallops and halibut, and on the very odd occasion I will indulge in a small bit of well reared lean pork or lean beef or lean bison. It’s not easy to find this healthier option of poultry, fish and meat at your […]

Watermelon

Summer is coming. What fruit is there on our planet that stands out as a “summer treat” like WATERMELON? Thinking about watermelon brings me back to my childhood. We always had sliced watermelon as a treat on hot summer days. I remember having seed spitting contests with my friends and siblings. I remember the sweet […]

A Different kind of Mother’s Day!

No less important….actually, I think even more important…..but celebrated today in a very different way than we have been accustom to for generations.

I’m not one for getting into political conversations but I do pay attention to what is being said and what is going on out there in the world. Let’s face it, what happens in our neighbouring country affects us here in Canada too. This article below was sent to me by a family member. I […]

CONSPIRACY THEORY OR POSSIBILITY?

BEFORE I PUBLISHED THE WRITING BELOW, that I received from a friend during this CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC, I did some digging. I did not want to be sharing anything that was completely wrong.
