If your home is in the woods, there are no second thoughts that you live in heaven. Have you ever heard about ‘landscaping’? It is the art of creating your surroundings in such a way that aggrandizes the beauty of it.
It’s that time of year! Maybe you’re already signed up for this season, or maybe you’ve never heard about them. A CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share is a local farm offering a certain number of farm “shares” of his/her crop to the public. These vary and typically consist of veggies, but often times include fruit, eggs, cheeses, and even meat. Consumers purchase a share from their selected farmer and receive a predetermined quantity of the farmer’s crop regularly throughout the growing season. Even in Western PA, where we experience a relatively harsh winter, there are plenty of programs and shares to choose from 12 months throughout the year.

When it comes to killing pain, assuaging sore muscles, or relieving various symptoms of aches and pain – many people are quick to reach for Tylenol, Advil, or other forms of over-the-counter pain medications and pharmaceuticals.
