Guess what, Fall Back this weekend

Oh no, can you imagine Daylight Savings ends this weekend.


Daylight Saving Time concludes at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 7, 2021, when the clock will “fall back” one hour and in theory we get one extra hour of sleep. Days continue to get shorter — Thursday was the first time since March 10 that the sun set before 6 p.m


Sir Pennycandy’s Apothecary Now Open in Rockport

A new shop has opened at 13 Railway Ave in Rockport and it is sure to bring a smile to your face when you visit. Sir Pennycandy’s Apothecary is a small shop tucked away in Rockport and offering a WIDE array of treats. I smiled the moment I opened the door. We were greeted by owner Brenda and her son Jet. There are “penny candies”, drinks, baking mixes, flavored popcorn, baked good, fudge and more treats for you to peruse. When we visited, a man was there with a young girl who’s eyes were as wide open as they could be. Another older couple came in as well demonstrating the wide interest in these items. Brenda tells us gift baskets and event favors can be ordered as well. It’s well worth a visit as a treat for your eyes and your stomach. They can be found on Facebook.
