A Signal reader reminded me that The Nickel is screening My Ancestors Were Rogues And Murderers by Anne Troake tonight in the parking lot below The Ship. You can view a trailer for the film here.
This will be the fourth film installment of the Nickel’s outdoor screening series. Bingo Robbers, a collection of NL produced shorts, and a special Republic of Doyle presentation were shown in the weeks previous to tonight’s screening.
Show time is 8:30 with no cost of admission. You’re encouraged to bring your own folding chair, and there will be popcorn on hand.
It’s shaping up to be a lovely evening, weather-wise, though you might want to bring a sweater just in case.

Previously unknown relatives of SpongeBob SquarePants have been discovered off the coast of Newfoundland.
Using a robot, scientists have been delving deep into the ocean, as much as three kilometers below the surface of the Atlantic, in search of hitherto unknown marine life.
Along with new species of sponge, they’ve discovered new coral, which scientists can use to go back in time a thousand years and gauge what the weather was like, an important measure in being able to determine the affects of global warming.

Like so many toy boats floating around your toilet bowl, at least a half dozen sail boats, maybe more, were seen milling about the harbour this afternoon.
Anyone got the poop on why?
Please, for the love of cod, tell me this has nothing to do with the opening of the food fishery today.
