WASSAIL 2010

P.E.C. - WASSAIL WINE FESTIVAL
November 20th-December 5th

Wassailing is an age old tradition, as the harvest comes to a close. Winegrowers (and wine drinkers!) celebrate the harvest with music, and generally toast to good health and good crops. A number of the local County wineries celebrate Wassail with special mulled ciders and wines, seasonal activities and holiday treats during this celebration. For more information on this Festival and participating wineries click here or call 613-921-7100 or 1-888-313-WINE.  PEC wine tour map here.

DockTech: instagr.am

My father had a Polaroid SX-70 camera and many of my early Docktime memories were captured that way.  This iPhone app comes really close to that experience with a little web2.0 tossed in.  Click, filter and share...Watch for our photos coming soon!


"It’s a fastbeautiful and fun way to share your life with friends through a series of pictures.

Snap a photo with your iPhone, choose a filter to transform the look and feel, send to Facebook, Twitter or Flickr – it’s all as easy as pie. It’s photo sharing, reinvented.

Oh yeah, did we mention it’s free?"

Walk on Water...

Updated on Thursday, November 4, 2010 at 6:26PM by Registered CommenterDocktime

There may be no dock here but after the video went viral this past spring, I'm sure many attempts were made at cottages all over. "Liquid Mountaineering is a new sport which is attempting to achieve what man has tried to do for centuries: walk on water. Or to be more precise: running on water. We are developing the sport from scratch. By accident we found out that with the right water repellent equipment you can run across bodies of water, just like a stone skimming the surface. Liquid mountaineering is performed by professionals under professional supervision. Accordingly I must insist that attempting to do so is dangerous. We like to thank the people at Hi-Tec for their support."

DockTech: Apple's MacBook Air

We have another edition of the DockTech Roundup with reviews, hands-on reports, and previews of the brand new Apple MacBook Air notebooks (11.6” and 13.3”) with solid state (Flash) drives that have generated a lot of buzz in the tech blogosphere, and given the specs, they might be a candidate - for some - as the ultimate Docktime mobile digital assistants.  That is if you need the computing power and keyboard.  We'll stick with our iPads and their simplicity for now.

The 1st Annual SBC Wake Movember Contest

From SBC Wakeboard: "If you’re thinking to yourself “What the hell is Movember?” here’s a quick description: a Mo (slang for moustache) + November (the current month) = Movember. The crew at SBC Wake are joining the growing club of modern gentlemen who believe in the virtues of fine moustachery, immaculate grooming and growing moustaches for Movember. We are looking for like-minded ladies and gentlemen to join us to change the face of men’s health.  Movember is about raising funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer. Close to 4,400 men die of prostate cancer in Canada each year and one in six men will be diagnosed during his lifetime. It’s time we did something about this." Click here for more info on the Contest!
