Details from the Business Journal:
Rapidly growing grocery chain Sendik's Food Market will open a new location in a former Jewel location in Greenfield, developer Devo Properties and the city of Greenfield said Wednesday.
Sendik's will remodel and occupy a 60,000-square-feet store at the Greenfield location at 7901 W. Layton Ave. The store is part of a shopping center that will be renamed Sendik's Commons.
The Greenfield Sendik's will be the latest of new stores operated by the Balistreri family, which recently opened Sendik's locations in Elm Grove and Franklin and announced plans to open a location in Germantown.
Devo Properties is led by developer Greg Devorkin, who developed the Fountains of Franklin retail center where the most recent Sendik's opened. Last week, Devo Properties purchased the Greenfield shopping center where Sendik's will open.
The Greenfield Sendik's is expected to hire 170 employees, said Ted Balistreri, who owns Sendik's along with his two brothers, Nick and Patrick, and sister, Margaret Harris.
The Balistreri family's other stores are in Whitefish Bay, Wauwatosa, Mequon, Grafton, Elm Grove and Franklin. The new store opening in 2008 in Germantown will be at N112 15800 Mequon Road.
Who’s John Coleman?
Coleman is the founder of……..the Weather Channel.
Here's his recent column from the website of ***, the TV station he does the weather at..... It's really good stuff:
Aborting to save the planet.
Insert adjective here: Outrageous, stupid, absurd, ridiculous, flaky, wacko, nutty, insane, loopy, ludicrous.
Syndicated columnist Kathleen Parker gets right to the point in her column today on these nutjobs.
“If we're not saving the planet for our kids, for whom are we saving it? After we're all sterilized and aborted, who's going to appreciate the fact that global warming is, by golly, under control? Who's going to live to tell the tale? Tell me: When was the last time you read a good book by a polar bear? Human beings may unconsciously wish to maintain their genetic line, but that's not the reason most people have children. OK, most of us have children because we get pregnant. But otherwise, the planet -- glorious as it is -- is simply not that much fun with no one around.”
“Suddenly, the unborn is of no greater importance than the contents of our recycling bin. Like Weight Watchers dieters substituting carbs for sugars, we trade off future members of the human race to neutralize insults to Earth's balance in the present. Here's how the mental calculation goes: Let's see, if I abort my child, maybe I can travel first-class to the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Bali.”
Here’s the entire Parker column.Save the earth….kill your baby.
If that’s being green, color me anything but.
Being the versatile and talented blogger that I am, you never know what topic I’ll touch on next. There is unpredictability about my blog that I believe is one of its strengths.
This blog entry is no exception. It is a public service announcement for all the men that make up my readership.
I recently blogged about the Victoria’s Secret special kazillion dollar star-studded Christmas bra….twice as a matter of fact.
Now, there is a MUCH cheaper, but very nice version of that bra.
But it appears it’s no longer available.
If you check the link to the less expensive bra on my previous blog, you’ll be taken to a totally different VS page that has nothing to do with holiday sequined brassieres. You can’t find it on the VS website, either.
So ye merry gentlemen, if ye waited until now to splurge, ye might just be out of luck.
Or maybe not. Maybe it’s not the best gift after all.
On MSN.com in the Money section, MP Dunleavey offers her 15 worst Christmas gifts. One of them is fancy foundations:
The lingerie trap: My husband passes along this lesson learned from hard experience: Never buy lingerie for a woman unless she has ripped out the page from the Victoria's Secret catalog and circled the exact item herself. If she opens a box and sees something that looks like a black satin hanky, it just opens up a can of worms: "Why does he want me to wear that? Does he need me to look trashy? Doesn't he like me the way I am? Next thing you know he'll want me to wear a blond wig and fishnet stockings like a streetwalker!" You can go from surprise to Splitsville in five or six mental leaps. Way too expensive on sooooo many levels.
So is the fact that the $300 bra is no longer available good news?
Depends who you ask, Jennifer, or me.
