This is my final post in this series but just because Small Business Saturday ends today, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t bookmark these posts and visit them during the holiday season and beyond.  Most of these suggestions have been on the Westchester View before.  I had a rather busy black Friday – p...
This is my second installment on Small Business Saturday.  Small businesses are the bedrock of our community and I’m thrilled to see that the small brick and mortars are getting some attention because Black Friday has largely become a big-box affair.   To see my first entry on small businesses  i...

    The Furniture Sharehouse is having the last in its fall furniture drive series in White Plains NY on Sunday.    For those wanting to know how to help flood victims from the hurricane in New York (Irene) – this event should be on top of your list.   This is ideal  for anyone who is thinking ab...
Every once in a while I get an opportunity.  I was supposed to be working into the evening on Saturday, but a last minute cancellation freed me up unexpectedly.  So I decided to enjoy the last afternoon of daylight savings at the Rockefeller Preserve with Jade & Tundra in tow.  We had a nice walk...
