    Poems for PolkaSpot

    BY:Josh and Brent

    A Facebook Buddy has been so inspired by Polkie’s onscreen antics that she has perfectly captured her spirit in rhyme!  It reminds us of the poems of Christina Rossetti.  PolkaSpot approves!! The sun peeks it’s head Over Clover Hill And the goats are slowly waking. The morning has come To Beekman Farm And the day […]

    Episode 6 Recap

    BY:James Frey

    The previews have been running all week. Previews that show the ghosts of Beekman. And it’s episode six. And three sixes strung together is the sign of the beast. I have been wondering if there is a connection. If the beast is lurking at Beekman, maybe living inside a goat and waiting to reveal himself. […]
