If you set your profile location so it shows roughly where you are, that can help others give you area specific advice.
Sophia, if you're seriously a rural dweller, it would be helpful to specify that detail, since we have a Hamilton here with very different conditions.
Hamilton is thus described in google maps:
Hamilton is a Canadian port city on the western tip of Lake Ontario. The Niagara Escarpment, a huge, forested ridge known locally as "the mountain" and dotted with conservation areas and waterfalls, divides the city. The long-distance Bruce Trail runs along the escarpment. HMCS Haida, a naval warship on the city's lakefront, and the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in the south, trace Canada's military past.
With an advertisement for a legal firm in Sophia's third post, I smell a rat.
Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S
