Being something of a naturalist some of my most memorable trips have involved seeing birds such as the endangered resplendent quetzal in Costa Rica or the beautiful rose-coloured grosbeak in Alberta. So we wanted to find the facts behind the claims you often hear about just how bad wind farms are for birds and wildlife in general.This took us down a rabbit hole of research and browser tabs that landed us in the workshop of John Bowman.
There's always going to be "the next hottest trend" trying to sell you on how you can have the best mind blowing, knock your hipster-socks off kind of sex. You know, the good-good kind of get-down.

If you and your teen aren't comfortable talking about sexting, talk to them about online safety by reminding them not to share personal information online -- like their real name, age, or phone number, or any other identifying information such as where they live, or the name of their high school.
