Garden Time

    Now that Spring is firmly arrived, it’s time to start thinking about your backyard garden. Actually it’s pretty late to get started as all hard-core gardeners have been planning all Winter. I always like to put in a vegetable garden in the backyard every year. It reminds me of my parent’s garden that we

It Was Super

    One of my standard jobs around our house is creating costumes out of nothing. I guess that this ability was developed when I was in college and we needed costumes for Halloween or various other costume-themed events, but we didn’t have any money to spend on them. It wasn’t listed on the Ohio University

Getting Broadened

    I enjoy living out in Geauga County which I think of as being “out in the country”, but it’s also nice to be near a big city like Cleveland. That’s because big cities have things that just aren’t available in the country, like the Cleveland Orchestra. My Mom has had tickets for years for

The Art of Wood Drilling

    I went to the “Spring” consignment auction this morning and as I poked around under the piles of snow covering the items that were lined up for sale, I pondered the meaning of Spring in Northeast Ohio. I decided to come up to the store instead of hanging around the auction all morning. I

The Lowly Drill Bit

    I was drilling some holes this morning for one of my projects, and it occurred to me that we haven’t talked about one of the most unappreciated items in the average homeowner’s toolkit, the lowly drill bit. Specifically we will cover drilling metals, drilling wood while it can be similar and even utilize some

   Now that Pancake Sundays are finished for this year and I don’t have to work on Sundays anymore, I was looking forward to catching up on my shut-eye a little. So if you see me at the store and I look a little bleary eyed behind the counter, there’s a reason for it, puppies.

For those few of you who aren’t aware, March brings Pancake Sundays to Burton, with delicious pancakes and sausage served at your choice of local venues. Each location supports their own good cause, and local volunteers make it all run smoothly.

I Love Burton!

    One of the main things that I like about doing business in Burton is our customers. We have account billing here for some of out commercial customers where they run charges all month and then we send them a bill. Well we got a letter from one of them this month explaining that we

Maxwell Smart Beware!

   The title reference might be kind of obscure for those of you under 50, but Maxwell Smart (also know as secret agent 86) was the star of the old 60’s TV show “Get Smart”. His arch-nemesis were, of course, the enemy agents of KAOS (an international organization for evil). This weeks blog is about

Spring Steam-Up

    It’s not quite March yet, but this weekend Pancake time will begin in Burton. The schedule had been complicated this year because Easter is early, and will fall on the last Sunday in March. That will put it in conflict with the last traditional week of Pancake season (how dare they!). To make up
