Moving to the country! - 04/28/11 05:56 PM
Moving to the Country! (by Katrina Walters, Schweller Properties) A few months ago, my husband and I moved from Oakley to Knightsen. For those who are not familiar with the area, Oakley is an up and coming city, just recently achieving their cityhood in 1999.

If you purchase the potted bulbs, remember to look (6 comments)

Pet Owners have reduced stress, cholesterol and obesity! I just finished reading an interesting article about how having a pet can reduce your stress, cholesterol and obesity! I've always known that my dogs and horse have given me a sense of "therapy" at times, okay, most of the time.

The article went onto describe several health benefits of owning a pet, that I thought I would share: 1. Pets help recovery from (1 comments)
