Good morning, everybody!

Thanks for making our First Friday Sale one of the most successful ever! Now we're full speed ahead with our spring inventory. Each day we're putting out hundreds of new items, so check in often.

What's on Sale?

There's a NEW markdown!


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 February 4th, is about WalMart's new line of makeup that's targeting elementary school-aged girls. Click here to read it.

Nothing says love like a handmade gift. Gifts from the Heart is a collection of 18 projects sure to woo your Valentine. From sweet treats to cute and cuddlies, we've got you covered. Start crafting your way into someone's heart today!


Here's my new favorite site. It's called Makes Me Think (MMT)- Today's Thought-Provoking Life Stories.

I especially like this one:"Today, during a talent show at my high school, an autistic girl sang 'Stand By Me.' In the middle of the song she got flustered and forgot the lyrics. Almost simultaneously, the entire audience of students stood up and started singing the lyrics and helped her through the rest of the song. She had the biggest smile on her face and took a bow. MMT"

Check it out!

If you've never been to Andy's Bargain Mart on Cleveland Hwy (about 3 miles north of N2N) you've been missing out! It's been around forever but now it's under new ownership.

A nice young couple named Angela and Kerry have bought it and they're busy bringing in new merchandise (including food items and toiletries) and setting the place in pristine order. I stopped in last week and found the coolest reading glasses ever-- for 79 cents each!

They're open Tuesday- Saturday. Swing by when you have a sec. You'll be glad you did!

Whatcha eatin' ?

My favorite cookbook author is Stephanie O'Dea. She's published two books of slow cooker recipes and is a frequent guest on Good Morning America. She also has a great blog in which she used her slow cooker every day for a year and published the recipes, even the flops!

This week's recipe is for a great snack called Nuts and Bolts Trail Mix.

Be sure to look for the great N2N coupon in the February edition of Gainesville's Little Coupon Book!

Wise Words

The guys who fear becoming fathers don't understand that fathering is not something perfect men do, but something that perfects the man. The end product of child raising is not the child but the parent. ~Frank Pittman

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!
