Next to Newsletter- Monday, January 24, 2011

It's never the same shop twice! Every day we put out hundreds of new-to-you pieces. There are always tags on sale and on clearance. Not to mention the Wild Card Sale, First Friday, Senior Monday and other promotions. Don't miss out on the fun- come often!

Let's do the Wild Card Sale this week- pick a card to determine where your discount is: 30% off tops? 50% off one item of your choice? 30% off shoes and bags? 30% off your entire purchase? Draw a card and find out!

New Columns!

My husband, Arthur, and I each write twice-a-month columns for The Times here in Gainesville. His deal with computing and technology issues. Mine deal with whatever strikes my fancy.

Arthur's latest was published on January 22nd. Click here to read "Beware of malware, other threats hiding in Facebook"

My column, published last Friday, is a response to the Amy Chua's book, "Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother." Just keep in mind when you click here, I write the column, not the headline. I'm still scratching my head over that one...

Click here to read about a parenting book that's very different from the Tiger Mother's. It has a lot to say about community and human kindness.


The Humane Society of Northeast Georgia is in need of a new or gently used portable stereo ("boom box") with a single CD player, a mic jack and power cord. If you have one you would like to donate, please email

I figure someone's kid has graduated from boom box to iPod, so if there's one gathering dust in the garage, please get in touch with Julie.

The Secret Stars of Harry Potter

Learn connections between stars and characters in the "Harry Potter" series at North Georgia College & State University, 155 Sunset Drive in Dahlonega. If the sky is clear, the observatory will be open following the show for telescope viewing. Seating is limited to 46. The presentation is at 8 p.m. each Friday through April 15, with the exception of March 18 at Coleman Planetarium. Admission is free.


In honor of National Pie Day today (January 24th) click here for All Recipe's top 20 pie recipes.

And be sure to mark your calendars so you can celebrate Pi Day on March 14th.

Gotta Blog?

One of the easiest ways to journal is by keeping a blog. Our whole family blogs.
The Next to Newsletter is published in blog form. I post recipes for Molly in Mississippi in a blog by that name.

Our Molly is blogging her 30 for 30 challenge (choosing 30 items of clothing and wearing only those pieces- and NO shopping- for 30 days.) Each day or so she posts remarks and pictures of her outfits.

Rachel is posting a photo a day for the next year in her blog, An Octave Above.

Arthur has a
blog about computer issues.

Are you a blogger? Please share!
Send the link to and we'll publish it here.

What's for Dinner?

Maple-Roasted Chicken With Sweet Potatoes

I love chicken, I love sweet potatoes and I love anything maple-flavored, so this recipe immediately caught my eye.

It's easy, tasty and here to give it a try.

Wise Words

Computer Problems?

Arthur says that if you have an old computer- whether a desktop or laptop- and you have data on it that you'd like to have removed or copied, he can do that for you.

If you've recently changed computers or plan to soon, he can extract those photos and documents you may have thought were lost for good. Well, they are not lost and your computer may even be salvageable. Let him take a look at it. He can also replace a small or defective hard drive or add a second one if you've run out of storage space.

He reminds you that just as with your car, your computer requires periodic tune-ups, usually twice a year. He can clean the junk from your system, check it for viruses and malware and make it run faster. Even if you think yours is running fine, he can make it run faster. His rates are reasonable and he stands behind his work.

Call Computer House Calls at 770-540-5100 or email him at Your computer will thank you.

That's it for now. Remember-email goes both ways...

If you run across any exceptional bargains or impressive new products, let us know. We'll put the word out!

Have a remarkable week!
