Last week I noticed the sign for a new local business – ELITE AUTO SPA, located at 151 Highway 20 East in Fonthill. (in the garage behind BB Pelham Petroleum Gas Station at the front.)

Owner, Claudio Frasca opened officially on July 2nd and provides complete auto detailing, hand polishing, engine cleaning along with an express detailing service.

I had stopped in for a gas fill up when I spotted his sign. I knew that my car was long overdue for a clean-up and all of the winter dirt accumulation on my car mats was especially getting me down.

No “good beard” is an accident. If you see a man whose whiskers are well groomed and look healthy, it’s because he’s putting in the time to make it that way.

A secret to take better advantage of is once you go grey make sure you have a great cut. Most people don’t like to fuss with hair so a short or medium length works great. No matter the length choice, keeping the cut sharp and in shape makes the difference in how good grey hair looks.

There’s a precise vocabulary used for cooking. To follow a recipe, you need to know and understand the lingo. Are you braising or stewing? Should you pan-fry or deep-fry? Is baking different than roasting? Good questions!

Country Corner Market (CCM) is celebrating its 25th Anniversary on Saturday July 27th, 2019 and have invited all their customers to join in as part of their CCM Extended Family.
