Aries (March 21 – April 19) Miracle Healing
Expect a miracle. You have asked for assistance and it’s on the way. The more completely you surrender to your situation, the more rapidly you will realize this healing. In truth, your situation is already healed. You have the choice, through your thoughts, emotions and intentions, to experience this. Have faith and feel grateful, and be open to the creative solutions you are greeted with.

We are living in an unprecedented era of human existence. We are nearing the ability to collect the sum of all human knowledge and distribute it instantly to everyone for free. We're not there yet, but we are taking major steps towards that goal.
Wikipedia is an online collaborative knowledge resource that is playing a major role in this effort. It is by no means the only piece of the puzzle, nor the biggest, nor the most important, but it is worth looking at because it is a piece that you can have direct influence on.
Where does the garbage man take the trash? Where will we put our waste? It’s a question that puzzles even the most educated people. We mass produce at such an astonishing rate that we can’t keep up with the amount of resources required or the space to house the waste. The thing is that in reality there isn’t space. If the whole world consumed at North America’s rate we would need three to five planets to accommodate us, our stuff and of course, our waste.
The three years we spent as a family living in the Bahamas were full of diverse and pleasurable food experiences. Banana and avocado trees grew in the yard of our first home in Freeport. Avocados grow so big they can feed a whole table of guests. My mother would pick them warm from the tree to make “pear sandwiches” - mashed avocado on toast with salt and pepper.
The saying “look good, feel good” previously used by the fitness industry for so many years will hopefully change to “feel good, look good”. It is frustrating to meet so many clients whose main goals are to lose weight in order to look good. Now don’t get me wrong, if you are feeling a little soft, inactive, and not good about your body then absolutely you should get motivated and do something about it. You just need to figure out how to do it successfully.
What do goggle-tans, mogul skis, and sun pits all have in common? Those are the tell tale signs that it is spring on the mountain. Although it’s T-shirt weather in town, there is still a lot of excellent skiing to be had in the mountains. Warm days and cool nights have created legendary spring skiing conditions!
Which is a greater threat to nature: chainsaws, bulldozers, motorized off road vehicles or the television/Internet? In my opinion, screens whether big or small are the greatest threat to nature, especially when pondering the fact that on average Canadians spend weekly 26.8 hours in front of the TV and 13.4 hours on the Internet (CRTC, 2007).
The Fernie Rod and Gun Club (FRGC), formed back in 1899, now stands as the oldest Wildlife Club in British Columbia. The Club nearly tripled its members in the past three years, with membership sitting close to 400.
The Crown of the Continent is an international ecosystem centered around the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, the world’s first protected area to span an international border.
A meeting point of four geographical and climatic zones, the Crown of the Continent feeds rivers flowing into three oceans and is recognized as one of North America’s most intact large ecosystems.
Recycling is high on the priority list in my household. I have the ‘Blue Bag’ system for the recyclables that the City collects from our doorstep every other week. I have a compost bin in the garden and the wine, beer and milk containers collect in the garage until I do a run to the Fernie Bottle Depot.
I might make the trip to the Fernie Depot once a month and it’s always a hub of activity. I think the only time I’ve passed the Depot with no one there is when they close on a Sunday and Monday. On any other day of the week they always seem to be busy.
