Coronavirus (COVID-19) Reference Point

Coronavirus: Why You Must Act Now

Coronavirus, Social Distancing and all that stuff....

Welshtown Haven is not a "Haven", nor is it associated to the medical field. We're just a simple house in the woods for the most part isolated from the people around, who in turn add up to a low population density.

We're also currently booked... So, sorry, the Inn is full.

We've done a quick read of the article the above graph / picture is from and believe it offers some perspective. Please don't take this BLOG entry as authoritative, nor as guidance of any way. It's just to provide a heads up. Everyone else is doing it.... We're joining the band wagon with this one.

Like we did with the recent Hurricane, we'll attempt to post within Facebook any worth while reference material. A thread was started a few days ago with the above link being the first post. Much of what is written above is that original post.

Is South Shore immune to Coronavirus (COVID-19) , NO!

Keep a heads up on what's happening. If you find value in the Facebook post and all of the links it provides, please "Like" the post. It tells us, our efforts are valued. If you find an article providing something of value, please pass it along to us and we'll review. If the material passes the sniff test and in context to how things are truly unfolding we'll add it. The idea is to have a non cluttered focal point.

Thanks for reading, this weeks blog is.... about Social Distancing and playing it safe. Enjoy the time with your immediate family. Take care of your family.

The  HUSQVARNA 128RJ is a.... <<Lightweight brushcutter, perfect for homeowners.

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
