I can't believe how time flies! With no travel, there hasn't been too much need to update the website but I was stunned to see how long it's been since I last did so! My apologies!

We've certainly been busy, despite the travel, and I just wrote a new eBook!

There is no book on camera menus like this ... and if you are an Olympus shooter
you'll find this book invaluable, walking you through every relevant menu item as
I explain how and why I use these features.

Hoot Hollow Cookbook


                After 10 long years, and many promises to Joe that “yes, I’ll complete it next month”, I have finally completed my Hoot Hollow Cookbook. The cookbook has a hard cover, comb binder (for ease in opening to a page), and has tabbed dividers (with my images) for the different sections. The cookbook is full of recipes that I’ve used for our groups throughout the years with a special “The Best of Central PA” section highlighting recipes from my family and from our PA Dutch influenced area.
                My cookbook will make a great Christmas present and will offer you and your family days of new recipes to try. The cookbook runs at $14.95 (PA sales tax, when applicable, and shipping are not included). To order your signed copy, contact Berni at info@hoothollow.com . I’m very proud of my cookbook and I know that it will become part of your well-used library of family-favorite recipes.
