Welcome to The HOLMESTEAD
On the Web since 1996
Canada is a number of hours later than GMT / UTC so for our current local time plus other useful information see Toronto at: World Clock.

Welcome to the "Holmestead" web site - online since 1996 with farming, wetlands, pet dog story, the World population explosion and history of the Maple Leaf Flag - plus now "chemtrails":

* Wetland:  You may enjoy this brief description of the wetland on the "Holmestead" property.  The page includes a few of our own nature photographs.
* "Talking Turkey":  The history, trivia and lore of the festive bird.  The story is also available in French: "La Dinde à la Trace".
* Making Kombucha Tea:  Our experience with the Kombucha mushroom - with some detailed photographs.
* Hot water tank anode:  If you own a home with an electric hot water heater then this page is a must read.
* Samantha's story:  Sam, our Alsatian, was credited with saving a young child back in the Winter of 1993 and people still ask about the incident.  A timeless story for all who like dogs.
* Population explosion:  Check out the official world population estimates - well over the six billion mark now - plus some other interesting related facts.
* Canadian National Flag:  The Maple Leaf - some historical background information and an idea of what the flag could really look like.

* Chemtrails - spraying in our sky:  Through our personal experiences starting in Spring 2002 we have been drawn into the chemtrail debate - or as it has been described:  "The illegal high altitude spraying of unknown substances by large military type aircraft - commonly referred to as 'chemtrails'".  There are many credible photographs that were taken right here at the "Holmestead" plus comments, observations and additional resources.
