Mahopac Has Cookies With Santa!

MAHOPAC, N.Y.— Mahopac School District’s SEPTO (Special Education Parent-Teacher Organization) held its annual fundraiser, Cookies with Santa, last month. The event was held Dec. 9 at the Lakeview Elementary auditorium.

Santa, of course, headlined the event. Kids had the opportunity to have cookies and hot chocolate while they waited to see the jolly old elf.

There was also a crafts table for the kids. But there was plenty to do for the grown-ups as well. Vendors such as LuLaRoe, Rodan and Fields, Arbonne, Tastefully Simple and Perfectly Posh, to name a few, were on hand selling their products.

Lefty’s ...

MOTHER: You don’t want to play in the beautiful white snow! Are you feeling OK, my Precious?

EVELYN: Yes, Mother.

MOTHER: What, then?

EVELYN: Well, yesterday at school, Buster made fun of snowflakes.

MOTHER: What? You must have heard ...

The Best Part of Waking up Is Caffeine in Your Cup

I think one of the greatest achievements of mankind is the invention of the one-cup coffee maker. Some people may argue that home computers, ATM machines and smart phones are greater achievements. However, when you look at aspects such as sheer simplicity, everyday use and the fact that a one-cup coffee maker increases my ability to be a functioning member of the human race every day, 365 days of ...

I Want to Redecorate, but Where Do I Begin? 

Since decorating mistakes can be very costly and time consuming, I always urge my clients to do their homework before undertaking any redecorating project.

What kind of homework?  A good way to begin is to flip through design and decorating magazines, and visit websites dedicated to interior décor. Start collecting pictures of various design products and styles that appeal to you ...
