Fitness in the sun
Following a trend of public, outdoor exercise programs, a number of local venues are offering their own free events aiming to get residents outside and active during the summer.
Beyond the bakery
For years, Muscoreil’s Fine Desserts & Gourmet Cakes has been a go-to location for desserts and wedding and occasion cakes in Western New York.
This summer, even as the bakery deals with the rush of wedding season, changes at its associated bistro aim to create a revitalized focus on that side of the business, as well.
Figuring out the birthday-party rules
The options when you escort your child to a birthday party are endless, really. Everywhere you turn, there’s another thrill to uncover.
The tail of two books
As promised, here are some more new summer reads that are all about our critter companions. Both books were released mid-June, and although they are quite different from one another, both would be valuable assets for your in-house library.
Volunteers on wheels
Walking into the North Tonawanda Meals on Wheels offices one recent Friday morning, the air is full of the scent of baking ... fresh banana muffins prepared by kitchen staff, destined to be delivered to those who receive meals through the organization.
A sign hangs on the wall nearby: “Volunteers do not get paid NOT because they are worthless, BUT because they are priceless.”
Time for the Taste
It’s a Western New York tradition.
And when the 31st Taste of Buffalo — the largest two-day food festival in the country — takes place from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 13 in downtown Buffalo, a number of Niagara Region restaurants will be there to take part.
DOUBLE TROUBLE: A WNY summer: Old favorites, new chances
Ah, summer. There’s no time quite like it in Western New York (or anywhere else, probably) for the contradiction of busy vs. bored. Like many other families, we’re kept hopping as the weekends fill with family events, plans and other obligations — and at other times, the cries of “I’m bored!” start nearly as soon as the last day of school ends.
CRITTER COMPANIONS: Getting back to basics
Having a full set of tools in your toolbox is essential. You can use a screwdriver to pound in nails, but a hammer would be a better tool for the job.
Just like carpentry, animal training using operant conditioning has many different tools. And choosing the correct one is essential.
