“This modern-day Christmas classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner ELF, as Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.  ELF is the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. Buddy is raised unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth.” – Cape Cod Theatre Company

Cape Cod Museum of Natural History presents A PBS Original NATURE Documentary “Christmas in Yellowstone”

 “Christmas in Yellowstone” at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History

Friday 12/27, 2019, 1PM-3PM

“As snow falls and Christmas lights glow in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, a holiday season of a different sort settles over the great winter world of Yellowstone National Park, designated America’s first national park in 1872 and one of the greatest expanses of unspoiled nature and wildlife anywhere on Earth! NATURE follows in the snowy footprints of Yellowstone’s red foxes, spies on the predatory warfare of wolves and elk, and climbs into the den of a grizzly bear that gives birth to two cubs while deep in hibernation. In addition to the stunning footage of landscapes and wildlife, trail alongside author and photographer Tom Murphy, who has been coming to Yellowstone for the past 26 winters, camping and photographing amid the silence and solitude of the park.  And go behind the scenes with filmmaker Shane Moore to find out how he kept up with Murphy during a harrowing trek, reminiscent of the legendary John Colter’s first journey into the park nearly two hundred years ago. Join us for a breathtaking look at wintertime deep within America’s first national park.” – The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History

When I want the freshest oysters, I don’t go to the fish counter at the grocery store; I go to John, the East Dennis oyster guy. When my husband wants a perfectly tailored suit, we don’t go to the mall; we go to Puritan Clothing in Hyannis. When I want the best chocolate this side of the Alps I don’t go to the candy store, I go to The Hot Chocolate Sparrow in Orleans. A Cape Codder since I was a kid, I can find you the right house, bank, builder, school, auto mechanic, and yes, even the right oyster guy.
