    • Oh, we are loving Norman Wells! I don’t know how well it reflects Canada in general, but we do love what we have been able to experience so far. Getting plugged in has been so valuable for us, we are very blessed to be in such a great community of enthusiastic people. SUCH a comfort dish, great for lazy mornings reading a book while the husband is out of town.
