It was a yearly stop during the holiday's to see the Christmas diplays and pick up some fresh greenery.
After 66 years Donzell's Garden Center on Waterloo Rd is closing. Lack of other businesses is being blamed. There is just no traffic on that side of town.
It was always of joy at Christmas, however, their summer plants and flowers were supburb! Their sister store in Cleveland, Gales Westlake Garden Center
remains open. Read the story at Ohio.com and remember!

You'lll need to take a month off work, be in good shape, oh and have $50 million to cough up!
Yep, 50 million, not to mention just like here there will be extras. Eating, wifi, etc.....It is the first time though NASA
has opened the door to regular folk travelling in space, even though Russia has been doing it.
They are hoping to open it u[ commercially and I am thinking a great commercial for someone will come out of this.

I just read that black bears are making their way into our state! Now these are still considered endangered animals,
so don't get your shotgun out! Word is, mamma bear kicks the boys out to find their own territory so she can have
more babies! The bears appear to moving west from Pennsylvania! Now they are mostly adorable when samll,
but can grow to several hundred pounds. Hmmm, would not want to run in to one. That being said, wild life
specials say they are not aggressive. Mostly like huge racoons!!! Really? I hope you are right.
they give a few tips to bear-proof your yard:
Store garbage away
Keep pet foods inside
Clean out grille when done
Hives should be fenced in
Loud noises should scare them off should you encounter one, however, they do not like to be corned!
Don't go for the selfie!!
So National Hamburger day is today! A favorite in our house for sure. I have to admit, I do not partake very often.
I feel it is a true indulgence. I do have a favorite though! Arnie's SRO just up the street from us had the best. They
use Kirby Meats, a true local! I will say though it took a trip across the Pond (Atlantic Ocean) to taste my other fav.,
Five Guys! Yes, a tried Five Guys in Canterburry England and I was sold!! I also will eat a turkey burger, and love
the different herbs you can add to turkey! Well I am cartain many burgers were consumed this past weekend.
I hop you enjoyed yours!
Ok, Memorial Day Weekend is almost here. You will definatley make a splash with these festive shorts

May 23 is Red Nose Day.
Created to keep children in need safe, healthy, and educated. It began in the UK as Comic Relief and adopted here in the US in 2015.
The children it benefits are here in the US and other poor communities around the globe. It could be vaccinations, books, or a safe place to stay during the summer.
Walgreens is the location to pick up your Red Nose, or drop off an old one for recycling.
Be silly and have fun while rasing money for the youngsters who need it the most!
