There's a feast waiting in our backyards, in the colorful farms along
the gray two-lanes we travel on weekend country drives. From rich
goat's milk cheeses to the bounty of fruits and vegetables grown in
fertile local soils. Consider as a family during this harvest fall season to support our farming neighbors and eat close to home.

Check out a new water drink company that was founded by Kara Goldin, a mother of four who cares about providing healthy beverages to families....she talks more below about Hint..
The idea behind Hint is simple: pure water, nature's original refreshment, accented with a hint of natural flavor.
No sugar, no artificial sweeteners: Hint is a refreshing alternative to sodas, juice and other sweetened drinks and it tastes great.
Sound good? It tastes even better.
We thank you for trying Hint, hope that you and your family enjoy it, and wish you excellent health.
Hint is available in many specialty markets and is also sold in fine spas and hotels. If Hint is not yet available in your favorite store, please ask for it.
Hint is adding new stores, spas and hotels every week and are also interested in school and corporate lunch programs.
