NOW, my reason for visiting Licking Memorial Hospital was to stop for a Dobio Espresso. At the entrance to the Resource Center is the best coffee shop in West Newark. It is well worth the extra steps to park in the parking lot to purchase and enjoy Starbucks Coffee and one of the high end quality pastries. Every time I have stopped, there are quest in the Resource Center and a small line at the coffee shop's counter.
Another good move to make if you have time: purchase your coffee on the main floor and then proceed to the cafeteria for a piece of delicious pie.

My next problem: January 1, I will not have the impressions to know where the furniture exactly needs to be placed after the tree is packed away. Should have taken a photo first.

The Heath, Ohio Christmas Day fire was started by a turkey fryer on the patio, a light snow was falling just enough to over boil the fryer when the lid was open. Two thirds of the home was destroyed. Be careful and enjoy your turkey.

The hard part is a strong fact: this will not be constructed for many years to come. But at least the drawings are complete, the properties identified for land acquisition and people know what is going to take place.
I am a proponent of roundabout intersections because of their safety features. It is to shame the interchange will not be constructed immediately. The use of roundabouts for this project would show how effective they are for intersections and perhaps set an example on more roundabouts in the cities, villages and other areas of the county to be constructed.
If ODOT would like to place some icing on the cake, the entire highway from 270 in Franklin County, through Licking County and further east should be re-numbered as St. Rt. 161. How simple would it be to give directions for someone coming from the west to Licking County or for our 911 Center to identify addresses for emergencies. We need to work on this and say goodbye to a confusing mess.

Plus: With the holiday season upon us, it's worth a reminder to all to shop in Licking County whenever possible. We know the allure of easy online shopping or a special trip to Columbus can be tempting, but it's important to remember that every dollar you spend locally ends up in the bank account of an employee who then might shop at your company or business. These transactions in turn create local tax revenue, which supports our communities and provides for a better place for all of us to live and shop. With the growth of the retail outlets in Licking County, there's plenty of places to find nice gifts right here at home.

Last week I reported on the 11/11 Corduroy Event with the 11/11 date most resembling corduroy, I was not sure if it was a internet spoof or not. Sunday morning watching the CBS News prior to a commercial break, "next an unusual club meeting once a year will be next" I did not think much about it. But sure enough after the break appeared the Corduroy Club. There guest speaker was PUT THIS ON.

8:30 Sunday morning, the first person I spoke to was while paying at the McDonalds drive up pay window, the young lady made me feel good with a thank you, then a short drive to the pick up window with next young lady offering me a thank you, once again.
Friday night I tended bar for my good friends of the Newark, Ohio Fire Department at the Firefighter's Ball (17.5 cases of beer) and then last night tending bar once again at the Licking County Chamber's Brew & Wine Fest (could not count the bottles of wine & cases of beer served, only have 20 digits to work with).
Both evenings there was a tip jar at the bar (firefighters do not use a jar, it is a fire boot), tips were always given by customers with all the additional funds given back to the organization. I wonder if a part of the generous tips was because of saying "Thank You" time after time.
To all my readers, if you are not in the habit, get into one. This will make your day better, your business better and my mother happy.

Who is Sean Carpenter and what is so important about him? Sean is the training director for Coldwell Banker King Thompson, a full time job, not an agent or broker dabbling in training, but an experience trainer. (Click here to listen to Sean for 3 minutes and you will find out why!) Sean has become a noted speaker, not just in Ohio, but throughout the nation. He is the best recruiting tool NRT, Reology & Coldwell Banker has in their arsenal. His positive attitude and his ability to make you feel like you are the only one in the room is unbelievable. Yesterday's Social Media class was of excellent caliber and a learning experience for everyone in the room.
