What have we been doing lately? Making lots and lots of packets of alfalfa seed samples. Jed will be at Canadian Western Agribition in a week's time (Nov 25-30th) to promote our alfalfa seed to all the cattle farmers. If you're going to this show in Regina, stop by booth #825 to say hello. A friendly face is always welcome!
Our three gorgeous children modelling the t-shirts we've had made. Looks like a Christmas card photo to me!
Did you know that our bees have been sold across Canada and into the States! We love that our bees have found new homes in EVERY Canadian province. http://ow.ly/JWDI50x6lru
Twenty years ago this month I arrived in Dalby, Queensland (Australia) for 12 months of work and travel. I worked on a grain farm, driving the first grain cart I'd ever seen. The family I was employed by took me along on their annual vacation at Fraser Island, that was completely magical.
In February 2000 I met Jed who was working at a fabrication shop in Dalby. We got engaged that Easter and in May began a 6 month trip around the "outside" of Australia. We drove north to Darwin then journeyed through Western Australia, across the Great Australian Bight, through Adelaide and I finally got to see the Great Ocean Road. We finished up in Sydney where I attended 10 events at the Olympic Games.
What a life-changing year that was! Jed likes to call himself my "6 foot souvenir". I had some fun looking through my photo albums, lots of memories and it's hard to believe that's 20 years ago.

My maternal Grandpa Bob McIntosh is the person that I want to honor this Remembrance Day. Growing up in the Dirty Thirties, there was very little employment or opportunity for travel. My Grandpa longed to see the world but times were tough. As a young man he went great distances for work, such as the goldfields near Prince Albert and the logging camps of Quebec. Riding the rails was his means of transportation. He built his own grain cleaner and earned enough with this operation to pay for Radio Operators School in Toronto. Grandpa told me that he rode into Toronto on a railcar as a hobo and a few months later rode out First Class. WWII had begun and his skills were in demand. In his years with the Merchant Marines he got to see every continent except Asia. Thank you Grandpa for your example of entrepreneurial spirit and your love of travel.
