LET'S HOPE  so as we try and all find our balance and rhythm in all this
volatile weather recently. What can we hope for/ what can we
expect?Difficult times with again news this morning of a lesser-strength
earthquake in Nepal, and tornadoes sweeping through some of our states, all
so hard to absorb and yet all so very real and hard on so many lives, many
that we are close to.

many things and yet it is my job as well as ours here to promote and sell
various wonderful liquid libations to you like the truly scarce ' The Last
Drop " Scotch Whisky , 48 proof, only 592 bottles made for the entire
world, just released, our cost to you is on penny shy of four thousand

small-business operation. Hope you like this dedication of ours to
representing large variety and products from all over the world. We want
everyone to feel comfortable when they enter our store, and to find some of
the spirits that they recognize from home.

WE SUPPORT LOCAL, WE SUPPORT small businesses : we stand and work together
here and it works. For those of you that have come to know us you know this
is how we work. We have nothing against the bigger enterprises, but being
small we work more closely with the smaller companies and keep each other
gainfully employed in these very difficult times when the large companies
have their lawyers that announce in public meetings here that they are just
trying to be more for their customers. WELL, aren't we all?!? And when did
we stop respecting the boundaries of each of our business ventures and not
spill into the business of everyone else?!?
