      Velma – it has been a long time coming to this small city but looks like it will be successful, very well attended and people were excited – me too!

    Very intriguing, especially the ‘Tuscan herb’!

      Blandina – there were dozens of choices and you could sample all of them, it was impossible to pick a favorite.
      Heather – not everyone was ready for the opening, it is only going to get better.
