Why go camping in Nova Scotia?
Welcome to Nova Scotia - a destination offering some of the most scenic coastlines and beautiful forests in the world.
There's no better way to enjoy everything the province has to offer than by going camping. It's your ticket to a relaxing vacation - your escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Imagine roasting marshmallows over a crackling fire, telling stories under the stars, hiking trails, swimming, canoeing along the river... the adventures are endless.
Looking for something other than the traditional form of family camping? Green/off-grid camping may be for you. It offers a unique opportunity to reconnect to the land and family - a great father and son outdoor bonding experience.
Green campgrounds strive to maintain ecological integrity, including providing habitat for flora and fauna as well as improving air quality. Some campgrounds offer low-volume toilets, low-flow shower heads, and shower timers. Others provide pit privy toilets and bottled water.

Planning on selling this spring?
A couple of tips to help prepare your home for sale:
Brush up on the curb appeal - First impressions are everything. Make sure the exterior of your property is in tip top condition. Especially this time of year, make sure the landscaping is tidied up; paint touch ups done and lawn clean and tidy.
Make sure all your mechanicals are maintained and in good working order - one of the first things buyers look at is the mechanical are working. Have any problems address before listing and a cleaning if applicable. Do your touch ups inside - All homes show signs of wear. Baseboards, wall corners, etc. All show signs of wear and tear. A day with a gallon of paint can do wonders for improving how your home shows.
Clean and Declutter - Buyers need to be able to picture themselves in your space. That means being able to see past the clutter, and that's a lot easy when the clutter isn't there. It helps to have an objective eye, such as your REALTOR® suggest how to best prepare your home for sale.

How can I choose the right flowers for each occasion?
Flowers can express so many sentiments. With the vast array available, it can sometimes be difficult to choose the right one for the occasion.
To create a smile on birthdays or anniversaries, go for brightly coloured flowers. A child will especially enjoy flowers that are accompanied by a birthday balloon or stuffed toy. Exotic flowers might be enjoyed most by a special lady that appreciates uniqueness.
Brightly coloured flowers are also a great choice for a "get well" arrangement. Ensure they're scent free, particularly if they are destined for the hospital. Tulips and gebera daisies are safe options.
Choose roses on special occasions like Valentine's Day - roses say love, especially red ones. Other romantic flowers include lilies and orchids.
Giving flowers of sympathy takes special thought and tact. Carnations and gladiolus are often a good option. White or blue colours can signify comfort and peace.
Your local florist is happy to help you find just the right flower for the sentiment you want to express. Learn more by contacting Zelda's Flower Studio in New Glasgow at 902-695-5777.

Why choose custom framing for your photo or artwork?
Professional custom framers can transform a basic photo or piece of art into an extraordinary centrepiece for your home or office.
Experienced custom framers also have an intimate knowledge of colour, style, size, proportion and design to help you decide on the best frame for your home or office. Custom framing shops often have a wide variety of materials from which to choose and are able to source materials that are often hard to find and expensive to order individually.
When you hire a professional framer, you're also guaranteed lasting beauty. Over time art can fade, turn yellow and be damaged by light if not properly protected. The materials that custom framers use are scientifically designed to help guard your art. They use only the best acid-free mat board, UV-protected glass and specialized assembly techniques to ensure that your treasured item will stand the test of time.
To learn more about custom framing, contact the experts at Picture Perfect Framing & Art Gallery in New Glasgow at 902-752-8277 or come in and browse. Original artwork and prints by local artists are available at Picture Perfect Framing & Art Gallery. "Same day" framing is also offered.

Are you looking for a simple, natural and effective method to improve your health and well-being? Reflexology Therapy may be your answer.
Reflexology Therapy is the stimulation of reflex points in the feet, hands or ears to create a positive change in the body. With specific finger and thumb techniques, the corresponding area of the body will begin to heal. Because the whole body can effectively be treated through the feet or hands, Reflexology Therapy can be used to treat a number of health concerns including back/neck/shoulder/knee pain, arthritis, digestive issues, sinus issues, menopause, foot pain, insomnia and more. The body is very intelligent and wants to heal itself; Reflexology provides the proper stimulus for this healing to take place.
Reflexology is safe for people of all ages with only a small number of health issues that cannot be treated. It is non-invasive as clients remain fully clothed. A typical treatment is an hour in duration with initial treatments (4-5) being no further than two weeks apart. Reflexology Therapy can also be used as a proactive approach to your overall health and well-being by eliminating toxins, enhancing cell function and improving circulation to help prevent dis-ease in the body.
Indian Head Massage is a 30 minute treatment on the upper back, arms, shoulders, neck, scalp and face. Its primary benefit is for stress and tension reduction but is also effective in alleviating headaches, eye strain, TMJ, mental fatigue, nasal congestion and insomnia.
Jeanette Gormley Reflexology also offers treatment in the areas of chair massage, auriculotherapy and specific foot pain conditions such as plantar fasciitis, bunions, neuropathy and tarsal tunnel syndrome. For more information visit jgormleyreflexology.vpweb.ca or phone Jeanette at 485-4909.
