Bucknucks will be closed on Good Friday and Easter Sunday, with regular hours on Saturday and Monday. Have a great weekend.
Today we close the book on 2014, which was Bucknucks fifth calendar year. Before I get into my memories of the year I want to thank everyone who has supported our business. I am happy to say that it has been our best year yet, both financially and also personally. The community of Cowichan has been very good to us.
I thought it would be fun to list some of the best and worst events in the past year. The things that stick out for me one way or another. I will try and stick to business related events, so I won't mention birthday parties or chicken massacres.
Well folks, on this day in 1759 (255 years ago) the great Scottish poet Robert Burns was born. He died at the young age of 37 from mundane causes, but during his life he penned many great works and is widely referred to as the National Poet of Scotland. He is known as Robbie Burns, Rabbie Burns, Scotland's Favourite son, the Ploughman poet, Robden of Solway Firth, the Bard of Ayrshire and in Scotland as the Bard.
Always the turning of the year is a time for reflection. We look at the good, the bad, and the ugly from our last trip around the sun. Then, we try to figure out what we need more of, and less of, and then make a resolution to bring in more good and filter out the bad. It's a cleansing of sorts, usually spent with friends and family. And some of us blog about it, too!
