Reunion Station: 2 locals with lots of talent

March 5, 2012

BREMEN — Do not dismiss Reunion Station as being comprised of merely two guys, a guitar and a set of drums. This talented musical-duo has the bonding element of a life-long friendship as well.
While neither, Matt McFarland nor Nathan Cleveland, can recall for certain if they were 9 or 10 years old when they first became friends, they can both agree on the incident that initiated their original conversation. Good-humoredly, Cleveland reminisces about McFarland’s mutually fruitful error, “…he thought I was someone else and kept calling me Tim.”

Everyone loves a good paczki

February 29, 2012

BREMEN — Everyone loves to indulge once in awhile and what better excuse than Fat Tuesday to enjoy a paczki … or two.
The donut-like pastry is said to have originated in Poland in the 1600s when the ladies of the houses felt the need to use up all the lard and other taboo ingredients they had to give up for their beliefs so they didn’t go bad. Fat Tuesday (also Mardi Gras to the French or in Brazil, Carnival), the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, is marked as the Catholics’ last big, bad-eating indulgence day before the fasting period of Lent.
