We'RE GETTING READY FOR SUMMER / let's do it together, make the most of it! we'd
love to be a part of it with you! More time to simply " be ".

I am taking to heart the words of the singer/producer named usher on the popular
singing show last night called " The Voice ". He basically said of the remaining
contestants that they had already proved themselves and that he wanted them
including Michele his last-remaining team member " to Be ", and to enjoy the
moment, that they would probably revisit it many times later together.

That's some good advice and I do believe that she took it to heart, too as she
performed fabulously last night along with the other three contestants. You have
all worked hard and proven yourselves, too I am sure and can now hopefully take
a moment just " to be " and to enjoy the fruits of your labors?! One would hope
so, I would hope so, I see you come to the store having put in the many hours,
having traveled much, having met the crunch of a deadline, having worked through
the office politics and all the rest.

HOPE EVERYONE ENJOYED FATHER'S DAY! Mine was very special. We have some very
special things here for you all to enjoy now. You will have to come by and check
them out. I will mention some of them here as it has been a period of mad
activity here for us all as we have received some of the shipments of ale, beer,
ciders, liquor and wines that we have been waiting patiently for. NOW we can
finally talk about them with you and not bite our tongues with the excitement
over them. That's good : it's all good. It's good / it's actually grand for us "
to be " here for you with many suggestions.
