The Mia Foundation

The Mia Foundation takes in dozens of animals born with deformities with the goal of giving them a chance at a life. 

This month Wishbone offered up the idea of 'tips to reduce odors'.  Hmmm.  Wonder what made him think of that? We thought it best not to ask but his tips are not bad, not bad at all!

 Purchase Gain beads and add a small amount into a new spray bottle and fill with warm water.  Let this sit for about ten minutes (shake it up to help mix).  Use as an air freshener or spray on carpets, couches, pet beds etc.  The scent last much longer than most spray air fresheners!

 Cut a lemon ­in half, sprinkle it with baking soda, and scrub the countertop to make it sparkle and the whole kitchen will smell nice too! (You could always put the other half in the garbage disposal to keep that smelling nice.)

 Baking Soda can eliminate pet (and other) odors from carpets and furniture.  Simply sprinkle on the area you want to freshen, let it sit for about 30 minutes, and vacuum.

Every season offers its own version of travel risks, obviously most of us would rather drive in this season with clear roads.  But are they really clear?  While not a risk like winter driving, stones and debris in the roads this time of year is a real concern.  How many of us have had that heart thumping moment when a stone is kicked up and hits the windshield leaving a (thumping heart!) star-like mark, or worse, a crack?  

When that happens your first call should be to Ray Sands Glass!

We borrowed the following from Tillman's Historic Village Inn's website page.  We tell you often how wonderful Tillman's food is, and we frequent there as often as we can, but if you don't know their history you really are missing a piece of the story.  We hope you enjoy their story.

The Village Inn stands in the center of a village planned by John Proctor, a local
entrepreneur of the 19th century. Mr. Proctor's village, which he named Fair Haven, grew to its present size between 1819 and 1860. It is evident that Mr. Proctor saw the economic benefit, to both buyer and seller, of the then new idea of cobblestone construction sweeping Western New York. By selling building lots for $30.00, he could entice settlers to build houses of cobblestone cleared from land, which he still owned, behind the lots.

The Ridge Road, first surveyed in 1798 and on which Mr. Proctor formed his village, became the main artery for east and west travel between the Genesee and Niagara Rivers. Mail routes and stage coach lines flourished encouraging as many as 10 taverns to be built within the Town of Gaines. The eastern portion of the Village Inn was built in 1824 by Samuel Percival as a "tavern stand". Pioneer accounts record that by 1838 as many as 8 stage coaches each way every day traveled the Ridge Road and used Mr. Percival's tavern

Owing to the traffic, the tavern became a stage coach stop and flourished through the years under several names such as Clark's Hotel, Fair Haven House and Fair Haven Hotel. Between 1852 and 1860 John N. King built a new business just to the west of the Fair Haven House, a Carriage Shop. By 1875 this new business was physically joined to the tavern by a carriage shed, to become the building known today as the Village Inn.

Stage coach stops such as this offered the travelers a place to wash off the dirt of travel and provided food, drink and lodging. The men were generally asked to wash at the pump outside where the horses were watered and to shave in the barroom which furnished the only mirror. The ladies generally washed inside, but perhaps in a parlor rather than a bedroom. The fare at these establishments reportedly could include items such as soup, fish, meat, pudding, pastry and dessert at the larger inns, while the smaller might offer apple pie, new cheese, sour beer, heavy Indian bread and port wine. An example of cost for services in Western New York in 1828 for two nights lodging, supper on the evening of arrival, meals for the next day with meat and poultry in profusion and brandy and wine for three persons totaled $5.13. In general the cost for boarders was $1.00 per day and $3.00 per week.

Today's Village Inn encompasses Mr. Percival's tavern and Mr. King's carriage shop with the connecting carriage shed serving as today's main dining room. Through the windows of the barroom, one can still see the 19th century water pump which served horse and traveler alike.
