Needlepointing My Way Through Hodgepodge
Hello, dear friends.  Is anybody having trouble getting up in the morning like me?  The open windows and cooler temps make for comfy sleeping weather.  Thank the Lord I don't have toddlers.  They would have to learn to make their own breakfast and drive the...

Mad About Mercury Glass

My husband and I lease a car every one or two years. The actual day of looking and negotiating is never a pleasant one. Except our most recent one. We walked into Prime Infiniti after spending time with an Audi and Mercedes dealer. We were weary and tired of the wear and tear of test driving and information overload. And then we met Chris Squires, who met us a warm handshake and easy smile. We spent about 4 hours with Chris negotiating and he was consistently pleasant and accommodating, working diligently to make us the fairest deal that he could. We met his boss, Charlie, who came in and welcomed us warmly to Prime and told us that they would give us the best deal that they could. After closing the deal we met the finance manager who was equally pleasant. This dealership is the most professional that we have ever done business with. I am writing this under my pen name, Katie Clooney, but my real name is Melinda Hammer. I highly recommend this dealership. They are the epitome of stellar service and professionalism.

I have lived in Mass. for a year and a half. I am used to being treated like a 2nd class citizen by Kennedy's and Tomassi's. When I stopped into Every Bloomin' Thing came up to greet me and was generally interested in my gardening needs. It turns out it was Susan, the owner. When I think of all the $ I spent at Kennedy's (even had a witch of a woman named Betty design a garden for us) it makes me sick. All my business is going to Every Bloomin' Thing from now on.
