Have you seen Netflix’s ‘Inside the World’s Toughest Prisons’?

I was scrolling through Netflix’s television shows the other night, looking for something to watch, when I came across Inside the World’s Toughest Prisons. The title certainly snagged my attention, so I decided to give one episode a watch.

Falling for Fall

Fall is my favourite season by a mile. In addition to much appreciated cooler temperatures, this change in season brings colour and new holidays, and in respect to the farm, a bit of a slow in pace.

McDonald’s coffee is not, in fact, Tim’s old brew

Us Canadians take our coffee pretty seriously. About as seriously as we take hockey, actually. And with our passion for coffee, we’re all avid supporters of Tim Hortons and their liquid gold – for some of us, Tim’s coffee may be our lifeline. Tim Hortons is sort of the superior choice when it comes to … More McDonald’s coffee is not, in fact, Tim’s old brew

Fer-de-Lance: the king of serpents

I’ve been pretty sick these past few days, meaning I’ve had ample time to explore Netflix and discover some nature/animal documentaries. Side note: if you haven’t browsed through Netflix’s nature/animal documentaries, I highly recommend doing so. There’s quite a few to choose from, all of which are educational and extremely interesting. I started watching a … More Fer-de-Lance: the king of serpents

Here’s how to get out of that cooking rut

Cooking, as wonderful and exciting as it can be, can quickly become redundant. Over time we become comfortable with certain dishes, allowing them to become routine and failing to excite our tastebuds in the process.

Understanding the difference between marijuana and hemp

I would argue that a lot of people associate marijuana with hemp, and vice versa. It’s probable that those of us who aren’t familiar with the differences between these two plants also group them together in the same category, despite the fact that they’re entirely different from each other. “Following the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp and … More Understanding the difference between marijuana and hemp

Understanding the difference between anxiety and worrying

Being someone who has Generalized Anxiety Disorder, people occasionally ask me what the difference is between anxiety itself and worrying. I’m not a doctor, nor am I a medical professional, so these sorts of inquiries make me a little uncomfortable. But, I do like to tell people, when they ask, that a major distinguishing factor … More Understanding the difference between anxiety and worrying

Are you an agvocate?

A couple of evenings ago, the Brant County Federation of Agriculture held its annual meeting at my family’s farm. It was a pretty neat experience considering it was the first agricultural meeting I’ve ever attended, and I was able to meet some new people involved in the industry that I hadn’t been familiar with prior. … More Are you an agvocate?
