Just Another Hose Job (Repairing Them!)

  One thing that I can count on selling at the store in the Summer are garden hoses and supplies. When I think of garden hoses, I usually think of sprinklers, sometimes it seems like I spent my entire youth running through sprinklers in the Summer. You see, we didn’t have air conditioning when I

Official Key Rant!

    It’s official, I’m tired of sorting keys! Which strikes me as sort of odd, as I actually like locks and keys. It’s something about how the right key fits precisely into the lock, and if it’s cut just right the precision pins in the lock line up just right and it opens – its

Seeing Double

 For several weeks now we have had a painting in our store window that might make you think that you are seeing double. It is a very realistic painting of our hardware store titled “The Storefront”, by Angela Schall. It was a gift to me from my wife who had it done specially by her

Hill Hardware Enters The 1990’s !

 It might seem obvious to those of you that know me, but sometimes I have a little trouble keeping up with the times. I live in an old house, work with old tools and own an old hardware store. I usually fight any new things tooth and nail. Just ask my wife who has been

Let There Be Light

    As we had several lamps dropped off to repair lately, I thought that lamp wiring and repair might be a good topic to talk about today. Household lamps can be trouble-free for years at a time (except for burned out bulbs), but sooner or later they often start to give trouble. Most, however, are

Pack Away Winter

    Well I’d say that it’s about time to pack Winter away. As we were putting away our window decoration snowmen, getting ready for a Spring display, it occurred to me that it was time to talk about Spring and the outdoor jobs that need to be addressed this time of year. Mainly this means

March Maple Madness

    Last week we talked about March in Burton and the accompanying pancakes. This week I thought I’d talk a little bit about the process of making maple syrup itself. As I assume you all know, real maple syrup comes only from maple trees. We’re not talking the grocery store variety here. When I was
