Like No Business I Know

by Sean McQuaid

Folks say Prince Edward Island's number one product is potatoes, but sometimes I'm not so sure. Maybe it's more of a meat-and-potatoes mix, since the province is awash in hams-of the incurable thespian variety, that is. Theatrically inclined people seem about as common here as our red clay, and their yield is every bit as rich. So as we ring the curtain down on the old millennium,

Read All About It

`Tis the season to catch up on your gardening reading and dreaming

Gardening Delights
by Nancy Oakes

With the unseasonably warm temperatures, I've been taking the occasional tour of the garden. I've tried to stay clear of the fear and paranoia that seems to be running rampant the closer we get to 2000. But just to be on the safe side, I listened as I strolled for any indication that the giant Y2K

Turn of the Wheel

by Jane Ledwell

When my siblings and I were just kids, one thing we always looked forward to was watching the odometer on my parents' car shift from, say, 199,999 to 200,000. We sometimes would make a special trip when that magic, uneven shift of gears was about to mark car's next milestone.

The Amazing Kreskin

The world's most famous mentalist communicates with The Buzz

Millennial Hoopla

The owner of Charlottetown's City Cinema shares his insights

by Derek Martin

While I'm more than happy to have made it to the odometer rollover that is New Year's 2000, I think I share the feeling of a lot of people that it is not as significant as media and advertisers would have us believe. History as taught in high school would be a lot easier if important events stuck to round numbered years,

Poetry is Discovery

Poetry is Discovery

by Lee Ellen Pottie

Reports of a new book of poetry being published never make the headlines of the six o'clock news, and hardly ever make a wave outside the small literary circle of poet aficionado/as. But I swear this time is different: Signal Poetry Editions of Vèhicule Press in Montrèal is publishing Wind and Root by Prince Edward Island poet, Brent MacLaine-his first book.

It's a Body Thing, OK?
Dance, music and dialogue make points about how we relate to our bodies

by Julia Sauvé

(Stuck up) Stacey: Didn't you know, that when the clock strikes midnight on December 31, we'll finally be in the age of Aquarius. Ya know, peace will guide the planets, love will steer the stars, and all that jazz.
Jacque (le Jock): What the?
(Stuck up) Stacey: Oh, that's some song from the 70s.
