    Alternative marketing ????

    OK. I am laughing so hard I'm crying. If you know me, take a minute to check out the following link. http://www.fanstory.com/displaystory.jsp?id=494340 This is an on-line novel writing forum. The writer / guest stayed with us AGES ago and I've watched her story develop for almost a year now...

    New room pics

    Not the best pics, but you get the idea. Behind the chair is a hallway that leads to the bathroom shared with the main room. I've hung a robe and extra towels there just to help define the transition. To the right of the table and chair is a cedar closet. We'll be "upgrading" as we go ...

    Haunted History Tours

    Very excited. Some of you know we have our ghost. I respect and like her and have chosen not to "exploit" her as part of my marketing. HOWEVER there is a local, wonderful group that does Haunted History Walking Tours and we're putting together a package for Hallowe'en and the Saturday before...

    Allegri's Miserere

    All links removed because this innkeeper obviously lacks tact and apologizes. It just brought happy / emotional memories of my brother and a beautiful piece of music that I should have realized was not secular even though it was intended as such.

    I just laughed 'til I cried

    TOTALLY off topic, but I finally watched a clip from Mrs Brown's Boys and then wasted the next two hours searching for more of Mrs Brown's wisdom. As far as I can ascertain it started off as live theatre, made its way into a sitcom, has had very mixed reviews but a second season is planned...

    Promotional pens ...

    Just received a promotional pen in the mail. It's the best I've seen. They took an image from our website and wrapped it around a wide-barrel pen. The B&B looks great and all the contact info is on there too. I have to admit I'm impressed and tempted. Over the years I've become inured to...

    Royal Wedding

    Looking for thoughts / advice. Thinking of doing a "Royal Wedding" package. I'm not worried about the details of the event. I can make it British. I can source the right stuff. I can make the early morning start fun. I AM concerned that it's very soon and that none of my packages have so...

    SWIRT - You're amazing

    Every time I couldn't log on yesterday (primarily to thank you) my heart sank - just because I knew you must have been having such a hard time. I really really appreciate what you do for this community. Thank you.

    Met an innmate ....

    .... who I was pretty sure I'd like. Turns out she's FABULOUS. I had the distinct pleasure of "hosting" two innmates last night. I say hosting in quotation marks because I chose to take a half day off and just enjoy them both. Once again a little fuzzy headed this morning but so thrilled to...

    Men !!!!!!

    I'm The Fixer around here. I love it. Diagnose, locate, isolate and then figure it out. Sink disposal went out. Usual blockage - Nope. Electrical - Nope. Motor - Nope. OK. It's a REAL blockage. Do we have a model that gives easy access. Nope. OK, so need to take apart completely...

    My life is about to change ....

    I am so HAPPY. I just got an e-mail from someone I've never heard of who is going to leave me over $14 million in her will. All she needs are all my personal details.

    Vote for Dash !!!! - or who makes the best seal poop.

    OK - so now it's on-line. If you click on the link you'll see a photo of Dash. If you click on the photo you'll get a preview of the show. About half way through you'll see a really (no, REALLY) vile looking apple / raspberry cobbler / crisp. Unfortunately it's mine. Fortunately no one...

    New phone number. Is it worth the hassle.

    Looking for WoW (Words of Wisdom) Our local phone company is expensive and has a monopoly. We would love to switch to one of the many "alternate" technologies out there - VOIP, Home Connect etc etc BUT our phone number isn't "portable" - ie we would have to get a new number. New number for an...

    Who's the luckiest innkeeper? I'm the luckiest innkeeper !!!!

    Repeat guests. Arrived with home-made peach preserves, apple butter, two huge bags of frozen wild blueberries and .... ..... a box full of china. I unpacked it this morning and found 6 sets of 6 piece Royal Doulton place settings. Each set is different - but really beautiful. They are all...

    Seal Poop ..... (or - it could only happen to me)

    I know guests like my breakfasts, but I should have known that, in my case, fame (or infamy) would show itself in a very unlikely fashion. Just had the best group of guests leave. Fabulous people. They were here to film a NatGeo episode about one of the finalists in a National Geographer...

    You say tomato and I say ....

    Everyone has their own style. I know we've had a long discussion on sarcasm recently so I wanted to share how and why it CAN work for me. Fabulous guests just left ...... We had fun every morning exchanging stories / opinions .... always big smiles - they would bring up a story from the day...

    Bah .... he kicks the ball for the blackbirds

    Despite being a Brit I am now a die-hard, yell-at-the-screen, NFL Fan. We were away visiting friends in Boston on Sunday so recorded the Pats / Jets game and manged to get home without finding out the score first. I was reminded of one of my favourite guests from two years ago. An older German...

    -10 degrees 7:00 a.m.

    Got up, started breakfast, made the coffee and then went outside. Thermostat said minus 5 degrees, but because it's cheap and old (kind of like me) I didn't believe it so checked on weather.com. I was right, the thermostat was wrong - it was actually minus 10 degrees. It's now 9:30 and we...
