    So, on that note of closing bookstores, Powell’s Bookstore in Portland had layoffs last months and if you are interested this is a great way to support them.

    I’m sure Dyson is really awesome, but I simply decided that the cost was too much and I’m perfectly happy with the Hoover I got instead.

    Honestly, the Dyson is the very best thing I have ever paid $400 for. Mine still works like the day I got it (after 7 years) & it’s easy to clean & simply awesome. They are also great about their customer service… I have never needed anything, but a friend of mine has a problem & use was promptly & courteously handled by their great cs.

    I’ve been in restaurants and cafeterias that have the chemistry salt and pepper shakers and sadly they don’t work as well as they look, especially the pepper one.

    Justine – You carry fantastic stuff!

    Seanna Lea – Thanks for the warning, I’ll admire from afrai.

    Lynnette – So good to know, we’re looking at getting one of the more expensive models since we plan to have it for life.
