.. We live on a large farm which is situated at the end of a dead end road which is out in the country and at the same time only 8 KM from a fairly large town, Sherbrooke, Quebec. Starting this year we are retired from a greenhouse and garden center business. But we have a large vegetable garden, a trout pond and laying and meat chickens which all need tending not to mention ordinary household projects etc. With winter coming on we are not quite sure how to heat the house. We have three alternative ways all of which work well and can be put into operation easily. We can heat with wood which is readily available on our own farm but we need someone who could cut it with a chainsaw and haul it to the house with the tractor. Other than that we also have a propane boiler in the basement. In that case all we have to do is pay for the Propane. We also have a sawdust system which works if someone uses the tractor to scoop up the sawdust with the bucket of the tractor dmps it into a hopper and cleans out the burner. It takes about 30 minutes once a day. My wife and I are interested in politics and especially theories such as the possibility that this whole Covid business is being blown way out of proportion to fulfill some sinister plot. We are very interested in organic agriculture and make compost on a fairly large scale. My (Chuck) passion is for Falun Dafa which is a Chinese system of meditation and self improvement. We have been taking volunteers for almost 20 years and have made some very dear friends and keep in touch with some of them. We have a nice room which can accommodate a couple or a single person.
