  Don’t tell me that I am the only one who is actually counting down the return  on the weekends. As I finished the articles in last months issue of Nascar illustrated (the magazine featured Tony Stewart on the cover) there was a feeling that something was missing in the winter months. 

  Aside from checking out the Cadillac’s in my son’s collection of car magazines such as Road and Track, Automobile and  Car and Driver, I rarely read sports magazines. For someone who enjoys reading as much as I do they seem like the unknown territory for me.  So I checked out the Nascar illustrated. It was a mix of history and articles about  drivers , interesting and fun to read.

I enjoyed reading about Nascar’s 60 th Anniversary and I thought some of the photography in the Gallery section was terrific.

I liked it .  Maybe I will order it for my son, of course, Mom will have to borrow it.

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
  

   Julie Obermiller who writes the Chatterbox on Tuesdays and the Sunny Side Up Column has inspired me to start a gratitude journal in which I write all the things I am thankful for.

  I found this quote to get me started since I couldn’t decide if I should write my own each day or collect them. My family is at the top of the list, health ,friends , being employed, many of these things are on the list. But this quote starts me on the gratitude journal pages.   Why not start your own? I am including a gratitude section in my regular writing journal that I keep.

   This event looks like it can help business owners get a great deal of information in a shorter amount of time. If you are a business owner it’s something new that will let you get to know what’s available in our local area.

 Everyone is invited enjoy a “Speed Marketing” event dubbed “Wednesday at the Winery” on Wednesday, January 28 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Vizcarra Vineyards which is located at Becker Farms on Quaker Road in Gasport.  

This event, sponsored by the Royalton-Hartland Business and Professional Association (RHBPA) and Absolut Care, features local businesses at different stations or tables around a room. Visitors to the event go from station to station to visit each business for a few minutes, learn about that business and what they offer. When time is up, a bell rings and visitors then move to the next station, eventually completing a circuit around to each station.

 

There will be food to sample from local restaurants and Vizcarra Vineyards will be offering free wine tasting. There will also be a cash bar. “Some businesses will have a few giveaway items so we have a nice gift gathering bag for everyone who attends,” says Helen Feron of Absolut Care of Gasport who is organizing the event. “Wednesday at the Winery promises to be a great way to get to know local businesses and what they have to offer. We are pleased to be working with the RHBPA to sponsor this event which is fashioned after the Speed Dating concept,” she adds. “I am sure it will also be not only enlightening but enjoyable.”

 

Twenty-two stations are available and a few openings for any local businesses that might want to have a table and be part of the Speed Marketing Wednesday at the Winery event. Open spots will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Anyone who would like to have their local business featured at a station please call Julie Maedl at 735-7631.
