Talk about an easy - but delicious - recipe !

3 cups self-rising flour

1/3 cup of sugar

1 bottle of beer


Beat thoroughly. Put in greased or Pamed bread pan and bake at 350 for 1 hour. Remove from pan and allow to cool.

That's all there is to it. The taste will vary somewhat depending on the beer you use. Brad prefers Bud since it is on the sweeter side.


NOTE: Don't be generous in measuring the flour or the mixture may be a bit too thick. If unsure use a smidgen less than 3 cups.



 It's cold, it's snowy and I'm bored. Gizmo and I can't go in the pool. Dad (and Mom) won't let us in the hot tub. Few birds to chase. No flowers to dig up. The horses don't feel up to being chased. And I haven't learned to ski. What's a dog to do.

What I can do though is keep all of you company if you go for a walk, use our snowshoes to hit the trails, or cross country ski on our trails as well. I'm very good at keeping watch over you, so I can guarantee that you won't get lost. Haven't lost a guest yet ! (maybe a cat or two but not a guest).

Gizmo and I were all smiles when Mom and Dad got married on New Year's Eve. We wore big red bows and were on our very best behavior. There are lots of photos, so if interested please hit the link on the right side of this letter (skip what Mom and Dad say if you want).

For now, I'm just going to lie down by the fire.

Keep warm now.


Thanks to Colleen and Brian from Ottawa, Canada who keep coming back to visit.

Special Valentine's Celebration at Buck Hollow Farm!
Married life really isn't bad. It's been a week and the chains are only moderately tight. Ooops, they just got tighter.

Anyhow we all had a terrific time. Jacquie and I both want to thank the many of you who wrote, sent cards or called. It's just a large family here. (Wedding Photo's Link below)

The first few months of the year are always slower. So here's an incentive to motivate some of you to return or visit us for the first time.

Between Feb 1 and March 31 we're offering a 3 for 2. Stay 3 nights and pay only for 2. That's a pretty good deal. Of course we can't combine it with AAA, Canadian at par, or other discounts and since this offer is limited only to folks on our mailing list, we ask that when reserving you please let us know that you're coming on the special. If this special is anything like the one we did for Jeff's Maine Seafood, rooms, especially over weekends, might get tight. So we do suggest that you plan as early as possible.

AND IF THAT ISN'T ENOUGH ! On the night of February 14, we will provide a cheese fondue dinner with salad and wine for all guests. I've had Jacquie's fondue and I guarantee its taste.

Hoping your New Years was as good as ours and that we'll see you soon.
