  Edward Murphy
My husband, Edward Murphy. Edward's very environmentally friendly. There's a beach, or landwash, as we call it. He cleans this place from end to end every spring. Every person in Little Bay, Marystown, really feels pride in his work. He was presented with this sign by the Burin Peninsula Chamber of Commerce (BPCOC).

Thanks to the people of Little Bay for interest enough to put his name forward for this.

This rug was made by my husband's grandmother, Jesse Coffin from Joe Batt's Arm, Fogo Island. I believe it was made sometime in the 1920s or 30s. I believe they were made to keep the women from going stir crazy in the long winter months! What do your readers know about these rugs?

This is a photo taken this spring of a squirrel's nest under the hood of my Ford Escape, on the battery. This nest was built from Friday evening to Monday morning. A fellow went to check the oil and this is what we found. Anyone with squirrels around their place, please check their car motors.
