In picking your Xmas tree!

Keep in mind to begin that I live in Nova Scotia and we are known as the Xmas tree capital of the world. From mid November till Xmas Eve on December 24th those trees that come from here are sold..Right up until that very last minute of a sale..Tree lot owners here never, ever turn down a client ..If someone wanted a tree and its to be had they will go out of their way to make sure you get it..Traditionally my family didn't cut and bring the Xmas tree in till Xmas Eve..My family went out on our own land Day before Xmas cut the tree and brought it home to dress out, ( term for thaw) , we as a family right down to the tot would all decorate the tree..with the smallest putting on the tree top, always the star of Bethlehem.
I don't think people actually realize how much work goes into the process of getting the Xmas trees ready for the market..There are two types of trees that go to market, natural and sheared. The natural trees are easiest to keep and the sheared are not so easy to keep. Natural trees only take a certain amount of care and are allowed to grow natural they still have to be sprayed for damaging insects and be fertilized.. The sheared trees have to be trimmed every month to keep its sleek appearance also need spraying and fertilizer for health.
My late husband and I had both sheared and natural..i got to prune the sheared trees because it takes a real good eye to make that tree look desirable. we had clients who specifically wanted sheared trees..If an exporter were to come in and cut the trees they would bring in men, equipment, and cutters so the trees can be mechanically wrapped for transport..the trucks would haul them to the tree yard for grading tags attached for easy identification and size ..different color tags for grade..they would reload the trees on trucks to be hauled either directly across the border Stateside or go to waiting transport ships already docked and waiting to be loaded...Its definalely a process.. So unless you know where or from whom your tree comes might be a good idea to stop and think about what it takes to get that tree to you...a lot of people handle that tree to make sure it gets into your home in time for Xmas.

We all have a few quotes that help us through the day, , week ,month or year. I have a few native American quotes that at a point I may share but for now these are very good ones to ponder or live by.

Lol I know a lot of people wont understand this posting..But short story is a lot of people know I have had issues with some on here who have since blocked me..Lesson learned..I posted comments that were rude and not so nice ..again lesson learned ..some of those comments on blogs were done by someone who seen fit to highjack or copy my profile when I was in rehab.Now again shortened version..When I was in rehab I could not access this site so I didn't comment all week..but now I don't comment too much any more but see one person who posts comments that are rude and obnoxious way more than me..Insulting comments that why anyone tolerates is beyond any reasoning..I call this person a Baby Ninja..why? because they come in put a rude or very insulting picture or comment up and hide behind their profile..I have reported this person a couple time and still it continues..even to the point of making comments about my comments..Its gonna stop one way or the other I assure them that ..when and how only the Ninja in me knows ..lol
