I live about 20 minutes outside of Winnipeg and I thought I was the only Manitoban on here too!

Nice to know I not alone.

Hi everybody, we've found land in the Parkland region of Manitoba, and are hoping to be moved there in August or September.

Not very close to Winnipeg, but still! We're very excited about going to Manitoba and are focusing on building our own little self-sustaining patch of earth near Riding Mountain Park.

I'm in good ol' B-town but we're in the city regularly. We lived in Wpg until we moved out here in 2004. Most likely we will be moving back to the city at some point for DH's career.

Yea my 20 month old slept right through it too.

Kinda glad it actually came this time though. I was starting to roll my eyes each time the weather network predicted a storm. DH would say "hey look, another imaginary storm is coming" lol.

Lol! Thats right! We planned a day trip to spruce woods (sand dunes) last wknd b/c it was going to be cloudy and raining. Perfect time to go thru sand dunes, right? Well, instead it was clear and flippin hot. We started and turned around and went home to the pool.

Hi from another Winnipegger I've been lurking on this board for a long time now and also thought I was for sure the only Manitoban around.
Glad to see there are some other folks here too!

Hi! I'm a Winnipeger too!
Anyone needing Kefir, you can message me and I'd be glad to share.
Just moved to the north east suburbs of the city. Dreaming of the day we will set up a fully self sufficient farm with windmills, composting toilets and solar power.

Just a question...If peaches can grow in Ontario couldn't they grow here also?

Ohh my ears perked up on the kefir...

Hmm peaches. Temps are a little more extreme here. But it could be worth a shot. I'm not the best person to ask. I enjoy gardening but I'm no pro. lol.

Just popping in to say hi. I'm in the Osborne Village area and don't come by MDC much any more but still around on occasion.

As for naturopaths, I've heard good things about Suzanne DAnner but have no personal experience with her.
