Sadly, there is no new episode of Heartland for everyone to watch this Sunday, because that national tradition known as The Grey Cup - the championship game of the Canadian Football League - takes place in Edmonton. And because so many Canadians are going to be watching it was decided - as it has been for past seasons - to not run a new episode of Heartland.
So instead, at 7:00pm CBC will be running a repeat of "Homecoming," the Season 4 premiere. This will give everyone the opportunity to dislike Blair all over again. But don't despair; there will be a brand new episode next week for all to enjoy (see below).
I'm not going to go into any additional details about the first episode of the season, which most of you have probably seen. Instead, I'm going to take this Thursday opportunity to let you know about some cool stuff, and to also take a little time and answer some of the questions that have popped up over the past few months.

Hi everyone! I have a little mid-week treat for you all - last August, Amber Marshall and Shaun Johnston attended the Priddis & Millarville fair in (where else) Millarville, Alberta and competed in the elite "Cow-To-Latte Competition" where they, along with Heartland Executive Producer Michael Weinberg, had to milk a cow and get the resulting milk to an espresso machine to make a delicious latte in the shortest time possible! How did that work out for them, you might wonder... well wonder no longer, just watch the video! (Click through to the Blog Post to watch. It's awesome! )Read More »

Okay, I have LOTS of info today, Heartland fans, and of course we'll start with some information about the brand new episode in the Heartland saga airing this Sunday, November 21 - Episode 408, entitled "One Day." Click through to the blog post for much, much more!Read More »

There's a famous quote by Charles Dudley Warner, the American editor and author who passed away in 1900, that goes, "Politics makes strange bedfellows." He was probably playing on a line from William Shakespeare's play "The Tempest," where Trinculo says, "Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows."
Well, when you watch Jackpot! - the exciting new episode airing this Sunday at 7:00pm (7:30 in Newfoundland!!) - you may think of using the words "team-roping" instead of "politics" or "misery" in the above quotes, even though there's both a lot of politics as well as misery at play when everyone gets involved trying to win a team roping competition...

Okay Toronto (and area) Heartland fans! As you probably know, Amber and Graham are going to be signing autographs at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto this Sunday from 12 - 2. As a LOT of fans show up for these sort of events, the RWF is going to be distributing wristbands in the autograph area (Heritage Court) starting at 9:00AM. What a wristband gives you is a guaranteed autograph - not to say that those in line without wristbands won't get through, but with a wristband you are SURE. So come early!
BUT... I managed to get my hands on 8 of these coveted items in advance, and I'm giving them out on The Heartland Facebook page at http://facebook.com/cbcheartland and the Official Heartland Site at http://cbc.ca/heartland/
What do you have to do to get one? It's easy! All you have to do is prove to me that you REALLY want one! The twist?
WITH A PHOTOGRAPH.
The photo is up to you... use your imagination. Is it you on a horse? You holding Heartland stuff? You holding up a sign? Something even cooler?
SO... If you are on the Heartland site, head over to the Community Forum and click on the brand new shiny Photo Board link http://www.cbc.ca/heartland/community/gallery.html and upload a picture that proves to us that you REEEAAALLLY want a wristband. Make sure you have the word "wristband" in the caption, then come back to the blog and tell me that you entered (by commenting on this post.)
OR... if you prefer, you can upload your photo to the wall of the official Heartland Facebook page at http://facebook.com/cbcheartland Again, make sure you put "wristband" in the caption!
ONE PHOTO PER PERSON ONLY!
We will randomly select winners from both the Blog and the Facebook page and let them know by Friday night.
Remember, this is for wristbands only - admission to the fair is still up to you.
Ready... set... GO!!!!
***UPDATE: The Wristband giveaway contest is now closed. We will be drawing names this evening and letting people know by email.
Remember, the rest of the wristbands will be given out on a first-come, first-serve basis at the Royal Winter Fair near the autograph signing area, beginning at 9AM! So come early!Read More »

Yes, same graphic I know, but now with added information!
Autograph signing details:
The Date: Sunday November 7, 2010
The Time: 12:00PM - 2:00PM
The Location: Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, Heritage Court Building in the Direct Energy Centre (100 Princess Blvd.)
Upon arrival fans can head to the main entrance of the Heritage Court Building to the Toronto Star Autograph area.
Every year a LOT of people show up to meet Amber and Graham, so in order to help avoid disappointment, we're doing something a little different this time around. We will be distributing wristbands to the first 200 people that show up. These wristbands guarantee you a place in line, an autograph, etc.
To be clear: if you don't get a wristband, it doesn't mean that you won't get an autograph, it's just that wristband-holders are guaranteed an autograph.
-While we will try to accommodate everyone, wristbands will be limited to 200 fans
-Fans can get wristbands by visiting the Heritage Court main entrance starting at 9AM on Sunday November 7th. These will be handed out on a first-come-first-serve basis.
-I managed to get my hands on TEN wristbands, so I will be giving them out here on the blog and on the Official Facebook page starting tomorrow! So make sure you check back!
** Last little bit of information: some fans may be under the impression that the following weekend Amber will be signing autographs on November 14th after the Woof and Hoof event she is co-hosting at the RAWF. This is not the case. She will ONLY be signing autographs during the allotted time on Sunday November 7th.
And just for fun, here's a short video of the recent Heartland Cast signing at the Spruce Meadows Masters this past September. Click though to the blog post to watch it!Read More »
