Hello Everyone, I have been asked to inform you that the Meaford Chamber of Commerce have just released a binder containing 60 plus pages of valuable resource material.This is an extremely well thought out project which will be an invaluable asset especially to ABBBE.com B&B hosts. Concerned primarily with businesses and activities in Meaford, it should be seen by ABBBE.com hosts as a nucleus upon which to build a wider and more comprehensive listing encompassing both the Blue Mountains and Grey Highlands. ABBBE.com's original plan was to develop the website, produce the VIPassport and permit each B&B to have a hard copy binder containing both VIPassport and web site information. Meaford Chamber of Commerce have produced the binder for us.Members in the Blue mountains, Collingwood,Grey Highlands and Owen Sound are all invited to add their own interests, preferences etc. There are only 100 copies available for distribution at this time. There is no cost for these binders. If you are interested in obtaining one, please contact Abby at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You'll see that I now have a new blog of my own where we can chat and talk and my old Abbe Explores section has been revised due to massive popular demand!! Seriously though, the real reason is because a short time ago, I received information from Mark, the owner of The Abbe House Inn B&B in Heber Springs, Arkansas where people can get a "Great Bed and Breakfast Experience." He thought that I might be infringing on his copyright and causing uncertainty to visitors. So, being the gracious person that I am and in order to avoid any more confusion , li'l ole me formerly known as Abbe will now be known as Ms Abby ABBBEDOTCOM ( Abby for short). I feel so excited and renewed by my new identity. If you are ever in the Ozarks, please choose to stay at The Abbe House Inn B&B, tell Mark how his advice changed my life and think of me , your friendly Canadian when you are in bed. Our American friends are such wonderful people.
I heard the following conversation at a B&B owners luncheon the other day. They were discussing the cost, value and merits of promoting another tourist trail, "The Culinary Trail" featuring gourmet meals and locally produced food and drink. Thought you might be interested in what the husband said.
‘The one who must be obeyed’ (his wife) came into the office and made the following revelation. She was preparing breakfast for our guests and decided to try out a new recipe for her fabulous apple pancakes by adding soda water to the batter in order for the pancakes to rise and become fluffier. They were a great success and all were consumed. When she went to dispose of the unused soda water by drinking it, she noticed a strange taste. Poor soul had not worn her glasses and Red Hills now offers another culinary delight as a breakfast choice “Pancakes with locally produced apples and Coors Light Beer". Another member commented that with what he knew, it should be easy to publish a book entitled "Successful Culinary Disasters from the B&B Trail".
Cheers from Abbe
