Perhaps I spoke too soon. Bread ‘n Molasses experienced technical difficulties this evening. BIG TIME!! The Mighty Miramichi site got a face-lift (doesn’t it look great?!) and we switched servers and things got a little bit crazy after that. Most of the pictures weren’t showing up in BnM. Well, they still aren’t. As I write…

Yay! Another issue of Bread ‘n Molasses has just gone live on the web! Well, actually it was mostly all there since yesterday, but I just sent the email to our subscriber list letting people know it’s ready. I’m kinda sneaky that way. J Yesterday was the official opening of the Miramichi Walking Challenge. Stacy…

FYI for all you book lovers out there — David Adams Richards is in town. He’ll be at the Books Inn tonight signing copies of his latest novel from 7 – 9 pm. What a beautiful day on the river! The first words out of my nephew’s mouth when his eyes flutter open in the…

Yesterday’s interviews went well. Yay! I got a press release the other day. I thought I’d better post it here because the grand opening will have taken place before the next issue of Bread ‘n Molasses goes live. A lot of people I talk to swear by pilates and yoga as the best way to…

Check the archives for the entries from last week. Today is an interview day and the final week before Bread ‘n Molasses September goes live. So far, everything seems to be right on schedule. I’m feeling pretty good about articles I’ve written and the overall content of the new issue. When I say today is…

TGIF! I got a great suggestion the other day from one of our readers. She wanted me to write a novel online, here in the blog, so you guys could follow the progress. “Hold on a minute! Let’s not go crazy!” I said. “I mean I wrote about how insane I get when I’m writing…

I think I can safely say I am the quietest person around our office. Because I don’t say much some people think I’m shy, others think I’m stuck-up, and some might even think I’m not too bright. Of course, none of it is true — I’m just part of that really rare breed of people…

An interesting thing happened yesterday that really got me thinking about what it means to live here in the Miramichi Region — about what it means to be a Miramichier. In the newspaper sometimes you see letters from tourists overwhelmed by gratitude toward Miramichiers who have gone above and beyond to help them through a…

Earlier today I updated the archives, so if you missed anything look for it there. A little bird whispered in my ear today. He told me some new voices might show up around these pages pretty soon. Hmmm. Wonder who’s dropping by? Remember to check back often and see. Preparation on the next issue of…

My apologies for not blogging more often this week. I’m still waiting for the rest of the crew to jump in and share some of their thoughts. Interesting people with great ideas and lots of insight surround me, but slowing them down long enough to blog is a challenge. And speaking of challenges, here’s one…

On the weekend I took some time to set up an Archives page and put all the back entries there. From now on, I’ll archive the blog every week and start a fresh page. But nothing will be deleted, just check the archives for anything you may have missed. I remember reading this poem years…

Because of the Mighty Miramichi web cam, last month I had the opportunity to attend some of the Irish Festival events. I’ve never been to an Irish Festival before. I guess it’s one of those things I’ve never done because it’s so easy to do that I never made it a priority. I’m part Irish…
