You might remember I have written about South Pond Farms in the past.

In 2006 Danielle French bought a 60-acre farm in Pontypool – a big decision considering she had four young daughters. The farm was in need of major repairs and rebuilding. She did not have a clear vision of what she wanted to accomplish exactly, but one thing led to another and the dream took on a life of its own.

The barn was in shambles, but the kitchen was created first. After all, it was going to be a source of income. The farm began to flourish, producing vegetables that could be sold and used for her unique culinary events.

Danielle now offers farm to table dinners and events that connect her farm to the local community. If that were not enough, she is the host of the Taste of the Country on Netflix.

You can visit the farm for lunch and hike the trails; have your wedding at the farm; enjoy cooking classes or learn how to make a wreath; plan and design a kitchen garden…

Another unique series of events are the ‘Full Moon Suppers’ – “The Full Moon Suppers are served in different locations on the farm and celebrate the close ties between traditional agriculture and lunar rhythms.” 

Mark your calendar for Full Moon Suppers in May, June, July, August and September.

What could be better than Snow School? How about Winter Ski and Snowboard Camp! You can do it all at Brimacombe – and as the website says, it’s “Worth the Drive.” 

“We’ve got something for everyone. From beginner terrain to black diamonds to terrain parks, you’ll find it all here. Snow covered runs, the sounds of laughter and the thrill of experiencing nature in all its beauty.“  (https://brimacombe.ca/)

The history of Brimacombe goes back to the 1930’s. The group officially offered memberships at the Brimacombe site in 1954. A family membership was $10; and lifetime memberships were offered for $100 each. A $300 loan was arranged to finance the construction of the first tow. And it was a good one! The first rope tow was built using an old car. The tires were removed from the rims, and a system of wooden posts and wheel rims was used to drive and guide a large rope up the hill.

Rest assured things have changed dramatically! Today, Brimacombe can transport thousands of skiers uphill each hour using 4 quad chairlifts, 3 -bars and a Magic Carpet.

It’s always nice to read a good news story. And reading about Kimberley and Wes Arscott’s new store, “Silver Screen Toys and Collectibles” in Bobcaygeon is such a story.  

bethany.ontario.blog.silverscreen.1

Source: https://www.facebook.com/silverscreentoysandcollectibles/

 Wes Arscott served in the armed forces for 15 years including two as a reservist and 13 in the regular forces. His service included deployments to both Bosnia and Afghanistan.

 His love of collecting toys like G. I. Joe and Transformers started in 2006 while he was actually in Afghanistan. A roommate had received a package from home… including a G. I. Joe Collector’s Guide. He read throughout the night.

 The story does not start out well. Wes came home and suffered Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). He became a prisoner in his own home.

 His knowledge of the art of collecting became obvious as he began to venture out to trade shows and festivals geared to pop culture, especially toys and collectibles from the 1970s and beyond. It was his future wife Kimberley who realized he had an enormous knowledge and passion for toy collecting. Together they put that passion into reality by first establishing a website, then a small store and now the grand finale – the opening of a larger store, “Silver Screen Toys and Collectibles.”

 The store offers:

·       a large selection of collectibles, many that are out of production;

·       a gaming lounge, where people can play electronic, board and arcade games.

The store is located at 54 Anne St. and is open six days a week (except Mondays) from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
