Othello at the Hall!!

I won't pretend to know much about Shakespeare, but I loved what was created today at our Community Hall.

Opening day jitters and cordless mic tweaking aside, there was some serious acting and singing that put a smile on my face the entire time.

Soils for Starts!

With this nasty cold weather, I know you gardeners are already chomping at the bit with your seed catalogues and new ideas for the season so I am getting the first of the soil orders underway and will continue to bring orders in throughout the season..

Pre-order and get it to the ramp for easy pick up. First order to arrive Saturday Feb. 18th 

groceries on 2:30 ferry

Harry called and said that, because Thrifty's doesn't have a morning delivery person, their groceries will be on the 2:30 ferry today, not the 9:45 as previously announced.

Friday 5:30 ferry running - but no groceries

Harry phoned from the ferry. When they decided to make the 5:30 run tonight (yuk!) it was too late to load the groceries. They will come over on the first ferry tomorrow. They are not on the ferry tonight.

Flu bugs, etc.

There's a nasty fact-resistant strain of post-truth making the rounds. Stay warm and informed!


ferry cancellation

Harry called a few minutes ago to say that they were cancelling the 9:45 ferry, and also the 11 o'clock sailing today, Friday, January 6.
