the book deal signing by Floyd Sneed the original drummer for +Three Dog Night with LeRue Press owned by +Janice Hermsen. It promises to be the fascinating story of his life starting in the province of Alberta, Canada. Many of the details will come as quite a surprise to prospective readers.

Correction: The original article stated that Jolene Cook manages the Great Basin Food Co-op. Although she used to, the current General Manager is Amber Sallaberry, who also had a hand in bringing the app to life.

I am fascinated by #BlackMountainCollege   which was located in #asheville  NC. It had a stellar core faculty including +Josef Albers, a refugee from Nazi, Germany. I know someone who was a student there. He is in his 90's now. Better continue our interview.

I have watched owner, Lisa go from having a booth at the farmers market to having her own shoppe in town as well. She is the pound cake maven. Other goodies are now available too. But if you like pound cake this is the place to go. A local business, not part of a chain. Support 'Polka Dot Pound Cake' and keep RVC one of the best places to live and shop.

Yummy organic desserts, the best chocolate chip muffins around and NOW they have locally made Kombucha, a first on Long Island as far as I know. What more could anyone ask for? Friendly service with a smile and very helpful, too. Outdoor seating and indoors as well. Coffee lovers could stay here all day long. Read your newspaper, meet other coffee lovers and have an real European style, relax and hang out atmosphere. Right within walking distance of the LIRR and everything else in the center or the lovely, downtown shopping district of RVC. So come to relax or recharge. Either way, I think you will be delighted. New yummy looking, gourmet yogurt too. Support your local business. This is a one store business not part of a chain.

I needed to have two favorite rugs cleaned. GiGi Carpet did a professional and prompt job cleaning them. I then recommended them to a friend who owns a store. Her entire store is carpeted. It has high traffic and is open six days a week. GiGi Carpet Cleaning Service Inc. came at her convenience, did an excellent job, wall to wall, and made a very satisfied customer.

The store seems to have closed without notice. Does anyone know what has become of the merchandise on consignment or how the owner can be reached?

Spectacular yogurt. The whey separates on its own so I don't have to strain it. What a treat. I add some fresh fruit and it is like eating ice cream. But much healthier than any I've ever tasted.
