Hi everyone. I finally signed up for Google Apps with Doug and I am loving it. I couldn't recommend it highly enough. There are many many benefits compared, for example, to the free gmail account. Just one example of why you need this is 24/7 telephone support from Google- I called several times and they were amazing. I had many questions about Google Drive, Gmail, G+, YouTube related to a new Google Apps business account and they were superb as was Doug at EasyGApps. I highly recommend you consider Google Apps for your business and talk to Doug. He's amazing and definitely the goto person to learn about and get help with Google Apps. Thanks so much +Douglas Baumwall for persistenly encouraging me to sign up! Have a great weekend. You can check out Doug's company at EasyGApps.

Google research reveals 34 percent of consumers on tablets or computers will also go to a store. And these people are ready to buy once they are in a store, as 18 percent of local searches lead to sales, compared to 7 percent for non-local searches.

Important Info about Heartbleed security threat
UPDATE: A previous version of this article stated - citing a list on Github - that users on a site called HideMyAss were affected by Heartbleed. A spokesperson from that site reached out to us claiming that their users are not affected, and we removed them from the list of affected sites accordingly. UPDATE #2:…

Fort Hill nursery is the ONLY place in Huntington where I buy plants and related items. First, out of all the nurseries in the area I've gone to, the plants here look the freshest of anywhere. Second, the service you get there is second to none. Third, the Fort Hill family is truly a family owned business. I like dealing with and supporting local businesses instead of the box stores- keeping the money in the community. I also like dealing with a family business because they best recognize the importance of service and reputation since there personal income depends on it. Fort Hill is a great place to shop!!

We've been going to Giardinos for as long as they've made pizza! The food is reasonably priced, the food is tasty, and the staff is very friendly. They go out of their way to serve their customers. I would recommend them to anyone interested in great slices of pizza or other quick Italian bites or take outs.

I can't recommend Oakwood Car Care enough. They are totally honest and ethical (not true of some car care and repair shops) and their prices are reasonable. Just as important, Oakwood is a family owned business making their reputation even more critical. It's obvious that Oakwood understands how important their reputation is and they go out of their way to satisfy customers. Oakwood Car Care not only cares for your car but totally cares for their customers. If your car needs repair or maintenance, I can't recommend Oakwood highly enough. You can't go wrong by taking your car there.
