Sunday mornings I usually grab a coffee and take time to catch-up on some stories I may not have had time to read throughout the week…I thought you might enjoy them as well.
Beached whale saved by more than 100 Nova Scotians in spontaneous rescue effort- The Globe and Mail
One little tweet send out New Year’s Day asking if anyone could help with a beached whale on Rainbow Haven Beach…resulted in many coming out in the cold temperatures to help. Is this a feel-good story or what? 🙂
City Slickers to Profitable Farmers- The Old Walsh Farm

“They knew NOTHING about homesteading or farming. They didn’t grow up on a farm. They didn’t have any sort of farming education. Heck, they had never even raised a chicken.
This is an almost unbelievable story about how Jason Beaton and Stephanie Robertson of Maplehurst Farms fell “ass backwards”, as they like to say, into farming…..And SUCCEEDED!” Read more here….City Slickers to Profitable Farmers
