Pies and cakes are abaking. Turkeys are aquaking. How fortunate we are. Here's wishing you a wonderful and relaxing pre-Christmas season, and hoping we reach out to others. Rachel Writes returns December 24.

Santa Claus is coming to the Bulwer Community Centre on Jordan Hill Road. A Christmas Party & Dance are planned for Saturday, December 7, at 7:30 p.m. Children are invited to decorate the Christmas tree prior to Santa's arrival. His Estimated Time of Arrival is at 8:30 p.m. and he will have gifts for children 10 years and under.

Dance music is to be provided by The Drew Family and Todd Aiken, with old-time dances, including square dances. Jim Naylor will be there to teach the youngsters, as well as adults. So put on your dancing shoes and come along for a fun time. It's a potluck lunch; please label food containing peanuts. Admission is free, but donations will be accepted at the door to help support the Bulwer Community Centre.


Slowly the great ball of yarn unravels, revealing the drama that is to unfold on the ides of February. That means, of course, February 15, the date already reserved on your calendar, if you read this column two weeks ago. The drama is William Stone's Leg. Now just who is William Stone? And does he have a leg to stand on? Hmmm.

Fly forward beyond the ides of March to Saturday March 29. That's the date of the second edition of the Bulwer Purple Prose Project. That's the maybe turkey supper at the Bulwer Community Centre celebrating quirky maybe murky prose à la Lord Bulwer-Lytton, the then-esteemed author of the finest purple prose the 19th century produced. He's the guy who stepped off the train in Williams Corner, Quebec, in the 1800s and left his name behind. Yes, that's how Bulwer got its name.
And yes, this is your tip to start working on your submissions of the wordiest worst-ever first sentence of the worst-ever novel. Check out last year's entries and the rules at the Purple Prose Project's website Then sculpt your own crafty word creations, and send them to

And tone up your laughing muscles. Put them in training now for the March 29th supper!
