Hmmmmm whats on my mind today? Well i don't know if logic eludes some people or some people defy all logic...I am a logical person , I make decisions based on my priorities ..If i need to do something to improve my life or my home then i have that mental list in my head..I don't cut corners and procrastinate , putting things off unless its not possible to have that particular thing done at a reasonable time..you know if you need to have help or another person do the job and for some good reason is not available , then thats something that cannot be helped...i then go on to the next most important thing...as most know home ownership comes with prices...
People dont own a home or have much of anything cannot seem to grasp the costs associated with that . Their priorities always seem to fall within boundaries that well ...make you scratch your head and wonder ..Ok alot of people rent and thats good for the landlord for sure , and the people rent are comfortable with that lifestyle...some get by with low income rentals , others rely on the " system " to get by , some just get by , will not even entertain the idea of finding a job and being a productive member of society...now i understand the economics of being in an area where jobs are not plentiful..
Ok this is where i get stumped..i do understand when someone is on a fixed income relying on the Government to their way , ok lets say it " welfare" ..even though its not a bad word its still not a great way to live...but if you are and you waste that on smokes and booze but seem to forget those groceries ...Huh? What? Duh !
I have two friends both smoke like diesel trains...one has COPD and has been told numerous times by his Dr to give up the smokes...the other guy is over 300 pounds also makes tobacco a priority has numerous health issues and also was told to give it up....He complains hes starving all the time and asks for and handouts so he can buy food..I know he does not go to a food bank , so thats my dilema.....I feel bad that they have to live that way but i put my and energy into my own home...I struggle to make ends meet by times ..I am on a fixed income...stressed alot by having to deny them and feel bad when those sad puppy eyes look at me ..i am trying not to be a pushover ....

Pets are forever not just for Xmas!

Hadnt written a blog for awhile now so i figured i might put a little something here Today i want to make a clear statement about pet adoption , whether it be a cat, kitten , adult or a puppy..Its becoming very clear in some places that people are either unaware of the adoptions from reputable shelters vs buying from breeders..Yes of course you have a preference for a specific breed of kitten or puppy and why not find them in a breeders listing of sales of specific animals...
I worked for 10 years as a Law Enforcement Officer in service to the Nova Scotia SPCA ..I also had a feline rescue and did animal Control for the Town nearby..Alot of abandoned pets got passed over in the shelters because there was and still are backyard breeders..People who have no scruples and sold sick and cheap knock offs of what they referred to as a specific breed...Ergo " you get what you pay for."
We here in Atlantic Canada have some really great rescue groups and animal shelters ..These shelters and rescue groups are always competing with ,backyard breeders and when someone ends up buying an animal from the backyard breeder most generally end up in shelters anyway..The so called backyard breeder has no sympathy for the buyer , they sell to make money , they sell sick animals and for a large sum of money you are stuck with a sick animal that may or may not live..Vets all over not only Nova Scotia but all over the world see this all the time...
My biggest peeve is those Breeders advertising at Xmas every year sales of puppies and kittens ..I never supported any breeder whether it was a reputable one or not ..as a Law Enforcement Officer it would be a daily task for me to go out on Investigations and finding dogs tied out after the puppy novelty wore off or the cat was tossed out after the kitten grew up ...It was heartbreaking to find these animals were bought from breeders at Xmas or maybe another holiday and tossed aside when they were no longer a novelty..I housed hundreds of cats throughout the years and never had a problem with any of them..
People ask " why do people do this to their pets ?" answer because they can. No one cares and most times when the bad pet owners toss out their costly boughten pets , someone else cares for them...thus the original owners get away with that..and the circle continues..go out , buy another pet from a backyard breeder and do the same thing.
I have a particular disgust for those backyard breeders when they popped up advertising puppies or kittens for sale at Xmas..and most of my Enforcement included education and alerting the public about certain breeders who were underhandedly selling sick animals ..wondering how ruthless i was ? Here is one example:
My Brother owned a very good scale company business , he would go all over Nova Scotia and be gone a week at a time...Him and his wife bought a very expensive German Shepherd from a reputable breeder. One week when he was gone his wife had a backyard BBQ invited several family members ..My younger sister told me about an incident that my brothers wife caught the Shepherd taking a piece of steak off of the BBQ , Bro's wife took hold of the and shoved its face into the hot coals burning the dogs face and nose real bad...she locked the in the shed and didnt vet him...
I reported the incident to the Head Office and took my sister statement ..went back to my Bro's place asked the wife about what happened..asked to see the dog ...called my Bro who was on his way home..told him what happened ...also told him i was taking this to the Crown Attorney for prosecution..i took pics , then with the RCMP present i seized the read her rights to her then took the to the vet ...cost some bucks to vet him but he came back here with me...long story short she was prosecuted , and got a 10 year ban from owning any pets ...fined 2000.00 dollars and had to pay the vet bill ...The got a great home with very good owners..
Something to think about as the story ends , please do not support breeders... adopt from a shelter or rescue , where the pet comes with a story but they also come with lots of love and affection ..." pets are forever , not just for Xmas."

Nova Scotia passes ban on single use plastic bags
This time next year single use plastic bags will be no more ..finding one may be the hardest thing to do almost like where's Waldo..lol
The Legislation takes effect in one year giving grocers ,retailers and the public time to make adjustments...There are a few exemptions and those are for the time being dry cleaner bags,the bags used by garages to wrap tires bags used for bulk foods and fish sold from pet stores...but these things are under review and solutions may be in order..
The Minister for the Environment says it may not take a full year for retailers to make the changes they say many members of the public have already made the switch to reusable bags ...In January the giant food chain Sobeys have announced there will no longer be plastic bags available ..They go on to say their patrons are very happy to do their part and bring in their own bags. More is being done to find a solution to the bulk plastic bags , deli containers and bakery products which are also in clear rigid plastic...
**** Sobeys is my go to food chain the variety , and friendly staff make the trip worthwhile..they call you by name and hardly ever forget a face...I have been using my own grocery bags for a very long time and dont buy many prepackaged items...its hard sometimes but there is always a solution or alternative way of buying..
Way To Go Nova Scotia!!!

First Barn raising in Lunenburg County NS in 50 years!
Posted:Oct 21, 2019 5:43 am

Story by Heidi Petracek co host of CTV News Atlantic..
When i was a we had hordes of people in any one given community would show up and help raise a barn or house whenever disaster would strike ..The members of a community get together in a day or on a weekend to help a family that was devestated by fire or any disaster, by building a new house or barn for the family who would lose theirs.. . Today it is very rare to see one neighbor helping another sadly this is the way of the world most times now...
Lunenburg County in NS did the first barn raising in 50 years..A local man lost everything in his hugh workshop by fire in August this year ..He owned a small and buggy business which seen thousands of visitors to NS hauled by and buggy through the town of Lunenburg and Basil would be at the reins proudly telling the visitors about the historical sites and the history of the town..
The business called Trot in Time has been around for a very long time and the loss of the building ended his business when a random spark from a torch started a massive fire and quickly ended in the building burning to the ground..Basil lost two beautiful antique carriages in the fire that can never be replaced , luckily the horses who hauled the carriages were not in danger and were out in the paddocks
The people of the communities that seen the business grow congregated on a beautiful Fall day and in the run of the day hammered together a bran new barn .A dance after the barn was done was hosted by Basil in order to thank the volunteers as was the custom years ago to thank the people who put time and materials into building the new barn or house..the communities were all invited to attend and it was a smashing success..
Basil was quoted as saying" If I could find all of the words to express to everyone who participated how thankful I am for their hard work I would put them in one of my buggies , but i would never have enough horses to pull the load,"

I love the Fall season ..October is my favorite time of year for getting outside work done..I dont enjoy doing things around the yard in the heat of summer...My birthday is on the 21st of this month and then spook night is near ..I used to prepare for that spooky night years ago but not so much now because there are few people who actually dress up any more in these small communities..Even parents who take their out do not bring them around..The temptation of the towns and much more candy variety takes a toll on the smaller places..but those of us who truly love the spooky attraction of decorating our places still press on..
I still plan on doing the decorating when i get set back up again most of my decorations passed away and family got rid of them when i was in hospital ..I have already picked out what i want and i am big on animated lifelike spooks and witches...I have a hugh house and property so lots of room to put whatever i want on display...there are some great pumpkin stencils out there now and when the pumpkins go on sale best time to put the artistic skills to use...lol
Please enjoy the memes and shit i am putting on this blog ....

Just touching on a few things and its not any kind of display on my part toward those people who lead any type of lifestyle that they feel makes them any more healthy than another but here is what i experienced not so long ago in the grocery store...
I have a large grocery store that i am dedicated to as i am sure alot of people do. My first visit when i go there is the vegetable and fruit isle. I am a firm believer in lots of fruit and vegetable consumption and i Personally feel it is best for me..I also have a great meat supplier who i buy fresh prime beef from Spring and Fall...Being a regular cash paying customer he gives me great deals along with exceptional service ..Yes i am a Meat eater. fist in the air Meat eater....i never buy pork because it doesnt agree with me ...I do however buy lots of chicken ..suppliers of poultry locally really does not exist so relying on the store to get what i need...
Now I also personally believe if someone chooses to eat what they feel is best for them that it should be left at that ..Recently i was at my store loading up on fruits and vegs end of season fruits were marked down significantly and i was in my glory ...
When i went out to my vehicle i was approached by a lady who was handing out literature which was about red or white meat consumption ..She said she was part of a small group who were anti red or white meat ...I said i am sorry i am not interested .Went to get on my way and she said well i see you have a large cart full of mostly fruits and vegs so i assumed you were vegetarian ....I said no i am not ...and again started on my way ..well she said i dont see any meats in your cart ...I said no you dont because its in my freezer at home..I told her i buy my meats from a seller in NS ..I will never give up my meat for anything .
***You have your beliefs I have my beliefs ..you choose to not eat meats I choose to eat meats...this is the way it should be i do not believe people should try to push their choices on anyone ...if I chose to become a Vegan or not it should be not at question...I have never felt healthier and i personally believe it is because of my diet ...My doctor put me on a specific diet and its working for me ,, i dont push it on anyone...
