That’s why I have tremendous respect for anyone brave

Beer and Tea

One Great Thing
by Ann Thurlow

The lanky fiddler is wearing a top hat and leading a tagrag and bobtail band in a mad symphony of reels and jigs. A teenager is playing the bodhran, chewing on a straw, faraway plans lurking in his eyes. Irish set dancers bow and twirl and click their heels. A table of women put their heads together, gossiping. A lady is knitting socks. The barmaids are horsing

Best in the World: History of the Malpeque Oyster
Dr. Barry King
Illustrated by P. John Burden

The Prince Edward Island oyster industry has a long and fascinating history. Large mounds of oyster shells found at aboriginal archeological sites are evidence that oysters have been used as food for thousands of years. At the World’s Fair in Paris in 1900, Malpeque oysters were proclaimed as “the Best in the World.” Today, PEI is the leading oyster

I’m Dining Out Here

We joke sometimes that when the Doctor is looking to have a really good time, the gold card comes out, usually to the benefit of everyone within arms length. There’s no pretension in the guy, just a clear dedication to insuring those around him enjoy life
