Next to Newsletter- Monday, February 13, 2012

Good morning!

I'm just back from my yearly sojourn to Columbus, GA to help chaperone the Georgia Thespian Conference, a gathering of almost 4000 young actors from around the state. Forgive me if I'm a little punchy...

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. As you can tell, our minds were on the same topic when we wrote our most recent columns.

Arthur's Computer Care column "Behold the wonders of the Web" was published on February 4th. Click here to read it.

My latest column ran on February 3rd. Click here to read "It’s parents’ job to make kids eat healthier"

Rising Star

11-year-old Max River Roberts and his mom, Amy, have been shopping at N2N for years. We've watched Max go from appearing in plays at the Holly Theater and DaVinci Academy to making this short film for Frameless Productions at Georgia Institute of Technology in 2012 as part of Campus MovieFest, the world's largest student film festival.

It was awarded Best Picture and will be screened in Hollywood this June and at the Cannes Film Festival. Great work, Max! We can't wait to see what you do next!

Fotoshop by Adobe'

Filmmaker Jesse Rosten was watching TV one sleepless night and stumbled upon an infomercial for some beauty product. The commercial showed before and after portraits, that to his trained eye, looked like the same photo just photoshopped. He laughed to himself. Then he made this video. Thanks to Julie Edwards for this hilarious link!

Shelter Stars

The Humane Society of Northeast Georgia will be holding a “Shelter Stars” Adoption Special from now until Sunday, March 4. During the special, the adoption fee for canines in the HSNEGA Large Dog room and all felines 6 months and older will be just $25 each.

Keep in mind, that includes vet check, shots and spaying or neutering. What a wonderful opportunity to find a forever friend! The HSNEGA is located at 845 West Ridge Road in Gainesville. For more info, call 770-532-6617.
Bring your new family member's adoption papers (dated between January 30 and March 4) by Next to New and get a $10.00 N2N store credit. Just our way of thanking you for being a lifesaver!


On Feb. 17 from 7-10 p.m., the HSNEGA is hosting Art with Heart, a benefit art auction with auctions, music, hors d'oeuvres, wine bar and art displays to raise money for the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia.

Fixing Scratched CDs and DVDs

Scratches on CDs and DVDs can be a problem. In some cases, even a small shallow scratch can render the disc useless. If you are wondering if there is still a use for your pile of scratched CDs of your favorite music albums, computer and console games, the answer is maybe.

National Pancake Day

Since beginning its National Pancake Day celebration in 2006, IHOP has raised nearly $8 million to support charities in the communities in which it operates. On February 28, 2012, guests from around the country are invited to celebrate National Pancake Day at IHOP and enjoy a free short stack of Buttermilk pancakes. In return for the free pancakes, guests are asked to consider leaving a donation for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and other designated local charities. Want more info? Click here.
