Welcome to Alberta!

I live 45 minutes from Banff and with the cooler weather on it's way I plan to be up there every weekend once the ski hills open.

Well after reading this nothing in my area seems like a pest anymore. Alberta, Canada may be colder than a lot of places but the lack of pests is a definite positive!

I highly recommend anyone interested in alternate uses for plants look up James Wong and Grow your own drugs.

I had a super anti-green thumb before I saw his BBC show, Grow Your Own Drugs (thanks to a site that has now been shut down by the U.S. government.)

His recipes got me so excited about gardening I went out the next day and bought three planters and filled them with things like mint, chamomile, lemon balm and even eucalyptus (which is growing splendidly) also I live in Alberta, Canada which is a zone 3 so the growing season is short and fairly chilly to most people.

I've been buying rechargeable batteries for years!

I started with buying them for my camera, but then I quickly bought more for xbox controllers and eventually enough for everything in the house that uses batteries.

My boyfriend and I have 3 cats and although it's still fairly cool during the day here (Alberta, Canada) we leave our sliding door open so the cats can venture out onto the balcony whenever they like.

There's a tree directly in front of the balcony where they talk to the birds, a neighbor cat on the second floor who's very chatty, and we built them a play tower to hangout out on whenever they like.

Considering they were all outdoor cats with large forests to play in before they seem quite happy just to have the balcony.

So all I need for this is my xbox gold membership? If so, this is very good news!
