My Mountain News image


It is the evening of 23rd October, 2017 and I have decided to do my monthly news early due to the Twyckwick® Project nearing it's October 31st launch. It is kind of at the stage where everything is happening all at once! And yet each day it seems that something "new" comes up. I have the distinct feeling that someone up there has some very definite ideas and that I am just the messenger. I didn't mean that to sound as it does, but I am sure you know what I mean.


Life has been hectic and yet exhiliarating at the same time. It has been fun making the discoveries we have made and fun finally putting everything in its place. This has been a long time coming and I am sure there will yet be many twists and turns. I have loved seeing some people scratching their heads as I try and explain what we are doing. I rapidly came to the conclusion that this is because there has basically been a lot of what may be deemed "losing the plot" building up in society for quite a while. So much so that to appreciate something as simple as an "old-fashioned" community is just too much for some.


So, what does that mean, exactly? Over the next little while I will try and clarify it all so keep an eye on the Bulletin. When the new areas open up you will be able to Bookmark those Sites and check back as often as you like. No pressure, but hopefully lots of good times and great memories.


Books and Cards are starting to stir but unfortunately there is just not the time to devote solely to these at present. Maybe after the Launch. So, we'll announce the beginnings of it all and then it will be a matter of gradually building and tweaking. I anticipate it could be the New Year before we are good to go with some more intense publicity and that is when we will be reaching out across the globe to hopefully reach all of our new friends.


Meantime, life in Capricornia has been decidedly weird, with some much-needed rain and the promise of a lot more. Thankfully we were not subjected to the levels that were experienced to the south of us. In all, not too bad really, and we are grateful for that. With work going on in all areas there seems to be no choice but to steadfastly work through it all. Thus, yard work and cottage drudge competes with webwork and everything else. Most of the annual chores are done and that is a relief.


The Holiday Season seems to be sneaking up on everybody and just in case you do celebrate...


Happy Halloween

My version of

Ghoulish Biscotti Basic Recipe

¾ cup caster sugar

2 eggs

1 1/3 cups plain flour

1/3 cup self-raising flour

1 ½ cups multi-coloured glace cherries

½ cup blanched almonds


Pre-heat oven to moderate 180 C or 350 F.

Grease baking tray.

Combine sugar and lightly-beaten eggs, add sifted flours then halved cherries and almonds.

Gently knead dough on floured surface.

Divide dough into two logs and place on baking tray.

Bake approximately 30 mintes, remove and cool in tray on rack, approximately 10 minutes.

Reduce oven temperature to 150 C or 300 F.


Use a serated bread knife to cut ½ inch slices, place on ungreased trays and bake a further 30 minutes until crisp and dry. Turn halfway through cooking. Cool on wire racks. Place on plate for serving or make up bags for Trick or Treats.


I have a feeling the Holidays will be very special his year! There are some Halloween Cards over at our Card Site and we will add some others as time goes on. Looking forward to Thanksgiving especially. Who can believe how quickly this year has flown?


Meantime, we'll twyckwick along - hope you do too!
