The Wonders of Coconut Oil

Have you discovered the wonders of coconut oil? For years, we’ve been told that coconut oil is bad for you, but the reality is coconut oil has just the right kinds of fats, the same medium-chain fatty acids found in mother’s milk and essential to optimum health and disease prevention.

People who live in tropical climates with a coconut-based diet have fewer incidences of heart disease, cancer, digestive complaints and prostate problems.

Evidence of Bears in Dennis

By Jonathan Mayo

As one who frequently walks the woods of Cape Cod I have come to some disagreement with friends about whether or not bears trudge just below our radar on old Cape Cod. Now we all know about the "Cape Cod Bear" but do others still remain?  One friend says "no way" to which I respond, "They don't make it a point to be seen."

Festivals - Cranberries Plus & Simple Oven Fries w/Options

      Over the next 4 weeks will be one of the reasons I moved to the Cape. The only problem is Im not a millionaire and I'm not crapping a ship load of money. So I am having to pick and choice which festivals I can afford and which ones I want to really go out and find those extra pennies, nickels, and dimes in the sofa and easy chair. These festivals both on the Cape and just off Cape will be an experience you will not want to miss. These festivals celebrate one the most iconic events that of our little spit of land has to offer, the Harvest of the Cranberries.
