Feature Pet – ZORRO

Feature Pet – ZORRO:  My name is Zorro and I am 1.5yrs old. I may only weigh 75lbs but I am a lab/pitbull mix and have the strength of a large human. I am very friendly and lovable but am in desperate need of training and obedience classes. I will not do well with other dogs or children at this time because I am still working on my manners. I will do best with an experienced dog handler who can love me back and be patient. For more information on me, contact the Nova Scotia SPCA, Kings County Branch,1285 County…

Novel Ideas For The Summer!

My addiction to reading has reached a new level. I read before bed, I read before my work shifts start. I read at the dentist’s office, while my laundry is drying, at my yard sale between customers and lately, I’ve started reading while walking to work. I can’t chew gum and walk at the same time, but I can get through at least 20 pages of a novel between my place and Il Dolce each morning. I love to read and I love to promote reading. Soon the true warmth of summer will be in the air and people will…

Mona Parsons Commemoration

A campaign has begun to commemorate Wolfville’s unlikely war heroine Mona Parsons.  “This project isn’t just about remembering the contributions of a community member,” says Andria Hill-Lehr, who wrote Parsons’ biography. “There are many who deserve that. This is about honouring the memory of a woman who, though she never wore a uniform or carried a gun, was willing to put her life on the line when she found herself in war zone and seized upon the only thing she could do to support the Allies in their fight against Hitler.” “The contributions of women to Canada’s historical narrative have…

LIDDLE AT THE WHITTLE!

In case you haven’t heard yet, a really big deal is going to happen here in Wolfville on June 14! Expect to see our town invaded by coin belts & a trail of glitter as belly dancers from all over the Atlantic provinces gather for a weekend of workshops & a show. I fell in love with tribal belly dance over 10 years ago after visiting San Francisco. And then, not long after, I saw the Belly Dance Superstars (a large troupe of dancers created by Miles Copeland, former manager of ‘The Police’) in Vancouver & was immediately entranced by…

Laurel Green:A Splash of Green!!!

Let’s see. Laurel Green loves the arts and appreciates everything associated with the arts. She’s new to Wolfville… do you think she’ll fit in and find something to do? Laurel Green is from Upper Saint John River Valley, New Brunswick. She grew up on a Christmas tree farm in a small Scottish farming settlement outside the village of Perth-Andover. I can see the sign now: “Christmas trees for Sale… Have a GREEN Christmas.” Laurel spent most of her childhood in the woods, playing and developing a love of nature. She says, “My two younger brothers and I would cut and…

Classic Bouillabaisse

Bouillabaisse originally was a stew made by Marseille fishermen using the bony rockfish that they were unable to sell to restaurants or markets. This French seafood stew shows off the catch of the day in a flavourful homemade stock. Herbed rouille (a thick bread-based garlic sauce) spooned onto the soup or spread on toasted baguette slices adds a special finishing touch. Lewis Acker Bouillabaisse ingredients: 1 tbsp olive oil 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 fennel, cored and thinly sliced 1 leek, (white and light green parts) sliced 1 tbsp grated orange zest 1 tbsp tomato paste 1 c. dry white…
