Newfoundland is beautiful, but if we aren’t sustainable, we won’t have much to offer. Money is not reliable. Money fluctuates, and tourism fluctuates. Why not invest in making the island sustainable? People could comfortably live year-round. There is food at the ready. Jobs aplenty that stay close to home and directly contribute to the community. Visitors could stay and see a model for honest living, where we respect the environment while still being able to have a quality of life.Read More
Maybe it’s time to think twice about that morning glass of milk, or that afternoon snack of cheese, or the burger on the menu for supper.
It turns out that what we choose to eat can either poison our bodies and eventually lead to our own premature deaths, or allow us to live longer and healthier.

Cars. They appear to be everywhere, and everyone seems to have one. It would seem a given that one needs a car. But does anyone really need a car?Read More
Sometimes people believe that one cannot teach an old dog new tricks. Some believe that things are fixed and certain. We often create boxes for ourselves and those around us, limiting our true potential and essentially going through life like a horse with blinders on.
