As a lifelong asthma sufferer, I immediately grew concerned about how the coronavirus might affect my asthma.
Asthmatics contend with the flu, seasonal allergies, and other triggers daily. In fact, our bodies require us to be careful, and tactical about our health…moreso than most.
It’s no secret to a severe asthmatic that we have more to be concerned with than those without lung disease…the same flu virus may be a mere nuisance to someone with healthy lungs, but to an asthmatic, it could be ...
As it stands, cannabis has not been legalized at the federal level. However, individual states have begun legalizing it at different levels of usage. The legal state of Cannabis in NY is up for discussion.
While the bill legalizing usage fell through in June, lawmakers in New York agreed on one that decriminalizes the possession of marijuana.
The new bill also expunges the record of certain marijuana convictions immediately. As long as convictions are within the new parameters, they are seale...
I’m just going to say it, a screaming goat is a seriously misunderstood caprine. The internet erupted with viral posts of screaming goats. It was shocking how human-like these goat voices were.
I’ll admit, I was amused…until I had a screaming goat of my own. From the first moment I heard my sweet Boer Goat, Fern, scream like a child being thrown into the back of a candy-toting van, I was no longer entertained by the internet phenomenon.

In the goat world, scream...

If you’re ready to take the plunge and start a small farm, you may feel a tad overwhelmed with where to start. Your goals are big…like, HUGE, and you envision a sprawling self-sufficient farm in your future.
And you can have one, but when it comes to getting started, there’s no better place than with a flock of chickens.
And here’s why:
1. Chickens Are Easy to Raise
Well, for the most part, chickens are easy to care for. It takes some time to become acquainted with the art of raising a health...
We all know that healthcare is pricey. In fact, it’s something most Americans have come to accept. The worst part about the cost of healthcare, however, is knowing that about 25% is considered wasteful spending.
That 25%, is exactly what The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) recently discovered in a study.

An often overlooked breed-selection criterion is that of location.
