Ollie's Bakeries - Local Destination - Enjoy Fresh Baked Goodies

Local Destination - Enjoy Fresh Baked Goodies

I sometimes get stuck in a rut, yes - it's true. I frequent the same restaurants, coffee shops, and cafes'. Every now and then some innocent and unsuspecting soul drags me kicking and screaming to some place new by offering to meet me there...

Sometimes this is a good thing. Case in point is Ollie's Bakery. If you like fresh baked goods in a much more European tradition than you can get any other place around here - and if you want to meet some great people - drop by. Be sure and tell Nancy "HELLO!"

Two locations: Winston-Salem and Greensboro. Have fun and you are welcome. You will thank will.

Christmas Gift Ideas - Cat Book

Need a Christmas gift idea? Have a cat lover in your life? Who doesn't? (If you don't have a cat lover in your life then you must pay indulgences to @Lucy_Cat. It's a fact).

My friend and local (ok. she lives in Madison - but it's almost local) author, Dena Harris, has a new book (Who Moved My Mouse: A Self Help Book for Cats Who Don't Need Any)out just in time for your holiday giving.

Your mission is two fold:

1. Go buy the book.
2. Read Dena's latest blog post and tell her I said "HI!" (no i'm not getting paid for this, but only because I can't figure out how).

Wait...ok.. 3

3. Like her book on Facebook.

Go shop. It's Christmas time.

Meeting Famous Tweeple

I'm presenting at ConvergeSouth this weekend. One of the benefits of these gatherings is that you get to meet many people - in real life - that you only know virtually. Case in point: Meet Elyse Porterfield. You don't know WHO Elyse is? Well let me help you out. Click here.
