You do it all to put food on the table for your family and for the rest of us, especially in spite of a particularly cold and wet harvest this year.

As Halloween is approaching and trick- or- treating is something every child of course wants to participate in. Here are five safety tips to keep in mind so that you, and your children, can have a ghoulishly good time ringing those doorbells.
Accompany your children: Join in the fun and go with your kids when they head outdoors. If you can’t be there, make sure your children trick-or-treat in groups and insist on adult supervision.
Know whose door you’re knocking on: Only visit familiar neighborhoods and approach well-lit houses.
Accept treats from the doorway: Neither you nor your child should ever enter a stranger’s home or accept treats from a car.
Remind everyone of the rules of the road: Look both ways before crossing the street, obey all traffic laws and use crosswalks. When in doubt, throw it out: examine all of the treats collected and confiscate anything that could cause your child to choke or is homemade, unwrapped or possibly tampered with. Halloween comes only once a year, so enjoy the holiday and your little ones can have a safe Halloween.

Have you seen a Skunk lately? proceed with caution… skunks actually do more good than you think. Skunks control termites, wasps, hornets, maggots, moles, and cockroaches by eating them!
Skunks do not like to spray as it depletes their defences and makes them vulnerable so give them space. They do not want to spray you and you do not want to be sprayed! If your dog gets sprayed here is a recipe you can make to get rid of the smell: 1 liter of 3 per cent Hydrogen Peroxide 1/2 cup of Baking Soda1 teaspoon of liquid soap, mix together to make a shampoo, rinse well after vigorously shampooing.
You may need to double or even triple this recipe depending on how big your furry friend is.
