Calverton: Signs of spring!

03/01/2011 11:14 AM |

A sure sign of spring is the reopening of Baiting Hollow Congregational Church’s thrift shop on Sound Avenue on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17. They always have many great things for sale, such as household items. Need new glasses, mugs or plates? They have ’em. Clothing, books, toys? This is the place to visit. The shop is open on Thursdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and everyone there is so nice and helpful. Do visit for some great buys. Also, if you have anything you don’t need or use anymore, they would love to have your donations.

There has been a report of peepers in Ridge. Yes, those darling little frogs have been heard in Randall Pond, according to a Manorville resident who knows his frogs. This means spring is on its way. I surely hope so!
If you’ve noticed your spring bulbs making their way out of the ground, step away! Do not remove any leaves or pine needles that may be covering them. It is not time yet, as the ground will most likely freeze again, and perhaps more of the white stuff, not just frost, will make an appearance. Poor peepers.

A very happy birthday to Dick Green, who celebrates on March 5. Dick, you are the best and have a great sense of humor. We all love you dearly and wish you a simply perfect day, full of lots of fun and surprises.

Get-well-soon wishes are being sent to my good friend Marge Parr, who lives in Manorville (next door to the gentleman who heard the peepers). Marge had a very unfortunate accident and broke her leg, but she is doing just fine and is healing well. She lives only a few doors down from my dad, who is also doing fine. The funny thing is both dad and Marge help me at the farm stand during the summer and fall. The “not so funny” thing is I’m hoping they both get better real soon or I am in big trouble. I have the utmost faith in the both of you, but take your time and get well soon. Lots of love to you both.

Teresa Pelis was a very nice lady, much loved, and very kind. We said goodbye to her this past weekend and she will be missed dearly. To Teresa’s family and friends, and to all who enjoyed seeing her at work at Bay View Farm Market, our love to each and every one of you.

That is all for this week. Be safe, take care and I will talk to you next time. Bye.

  • Very inspiring! Not because we have people paid to do the cleaning task doesn’t mean the community are already exempted from taking care of their own environment. Besides the effect of being concerned for the community comes back to you a hundred folds. It’s also good to involve the young ones in the activity to inculcate in them the importance of a clean environment and of teamwork and cooperation. Thanks for the great share!

  • There are two ways to clean the carpet. One, you can rent a steam cleaner and do it yourself. Two, you can hire a professional carpet cleaning service in the San Diego area. Cleaning the carpet yourself can take many hours, so it might be best to hire a professional carpet cleaner if you have a busy schedule.

  • By getting professional help to clean your carpets you can ensure that your carpets are cleaned thoroughly. By cleaning your carpets by yourself you will only end up spending a lo f time and at the end of the day no all the dirt and sport from the carpet is eradicated. So and the time and energy you spend will be a waste of time. When you appoint a carpet cleaning company to do the cleaning they technicians will explain to you all the techniques and products that will be used. You can clear our doubts and all your queries with them.

  • The environmental benefits of a waste program have both a local and a global impact. While many people focus on the global affects, the local community sees the most immediate and powerful benefits. Whether it is cleaner public areas, new green jobs, or extra municipal funding, when the whole community gets involved in a program, everyone benefits. Carpet Cleaning Vancouver BC

  • There are debates for and against cleaning your own carpet. If you have someone that isn’t responsible about it, you’ll end up with your padding and floors damaged, and your carpet will still not be clean. Try getting your cash back from a corporation like that. Naturally, if you hire a credible professional, your carpet will be undamaged and look as new when they’re done.

  • Carpet cleaning is the nice process to clean up your carpet.
