New BLOG Tool....

New Post or Blog for a new tool.

Up until now, we've been using Facebook to handle our primary Social Media needs; however, it appears that a profile name of "Welshtown Haven" is not allowed or permitted. Something about all profiles must relate back to real people and companies are not allowed.

Well, Welshtown Haven Inc. is a properly registered company (with said name) but they got us on it not being a "Person". In turn, Welshtown Haven is looking for a new mechanism to facilitate our Social Media Needs.

Our hope with this "Blogger" application is to be able to continue with one "Blog" every week talking about whats up and happening in South Shore Nova Scotia or more specifically, what's happening at our Vacation House.

How all of this will propagate to our Facebook Page "Welshtown Haven Inc.", who knows? This Blog entry while being the first, will also serve as a test mechanism for pushing content onto our Facebook Page.

In turn, our Facebook Profile will be lost. All those who have accepted a "Friend Request" but have not "Liked" our Facebook Page will drop off. Please, before this happens take the time, click through to our page and hit "Like".

Welshtown Haven Inc., the Facebook Page should persist. We should also be able to push out our message to groups.

Now, to hit "Save" / "Publish" and see how things are going to unfold....

The  HUSQVARNA 128RJ is a.... <<Lightweight brushcutter, perfect for homeowners. Easy starting with Smart Start® recoil system, fuel pump and an always-ON auto return stop switch for trouble free starting. Fitted with a J-handle and harness. Equipped with easy loading, semi automatic, trimmer head and metal blade. E-TECH® engine for reduced emissions. >> Ya, okay.... that's the first review that comes up for this thing in Google (at least for us). With search criteria of "husqvarna 128rj review", you don't get much. I'm sure if we pop into the Amazon link they'll have something. Now, what's our experience with this durable item? This is a BLOG and that typically means a bit of a story. We will not fault the Dayton dealer, in the Canadian community of Yarmouth County. They were responsible and respectable while purchasing the trimmer, chainsaw and lawnmower back 4 years ago. Taking the trimmer back late this summer, they were also polite an

Welshtown Haven and Hugelkulture? The start of something more....

A brief description of Hugelkulture can be found at The Old Farmers Almanac , where the picture above is explained. The site UK Permaculture , provides the "Permaculturalist" view and Youtube "How to build a Hugelkulture Bed" , is is a short video on the topic. South Shore Nova scotia was originally formed through Glacial Erosion and Deposition . Different areas have different Soil Types , some Clay, others Sandy. Welshtown Haven is sitting on Silt. Silt makes excellent Loam; however, the trick in the transition is organic matter. When it rains (non summer months) it rains hard. Due to the soil, it filters down into the water table leaving the surface dry. What is missing is a solid layer of organic matter or loam. While an old growth deciduous forest would provide this, the predominant overstory has been coniferous. Over the years South Shore has been logged, harvesting the old growth and allowing the fertile upper layer of loam soil to wash away. So, the so

Upcoming Town and Municipal elections...

  Titan can be heard snarling and barking like a ferocious wild animal while he sleeps. He is dreaming. About what, I don't think anyone really knows. By day, he is a lovable Labrador quietly nudging for attention. Everybody has dreams. Some dreams we have while we sleep while others dreams while awake. It is these wakeful dreams of what could be, that can drive things forward or possibly into stagnation if they are to wild or ungoverned.  The Town Shelburne has an upcoming election for Town Council. The candidates are projecting what they believe they can accomplish and the towns people are looking for a way forward. Of concern for all are the Budgetary issues. Other common issues look to be available activities for youth, the cost of food, the Rail Trail and the issue of growth. Growth will occur within the area over time regardless of it being managed or not. No one has a crystal ball that sees into the future. Looking into the past to project a future vision can be difficult. M
