Help Local Businesses When Buying Small Ticket Items, Pay Cash. Also, Tip with Cash. A Friendly Message From Kentucky CPS & Buy Local Bowling Green!

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Friday, June 23rd, 2017 9:00 AM CST

I know it seems odd that a company like Kentucky CPS suggests to pay cash for items when they make money off credit card processing. Well, that’s what we love about local businesses like Kentucky CPS. They want what is best for their clients. We know sometimes you just forget cash or can’t make it to the bank before shopping. We understand. Still the fact remains, The Durbin Amendment, enacted in October 2011 as part of the Dodd-Frank Act, set a cap on the amount financial institutions can charge merchants to process debit card transactions. Before the Durbin Amendment, retailers paid an average of 45 cents every time they swiped a debit card. Now, the max card companies can charge is about 21 cents per transaction.

That sounds good for retailers and good for business until you look at the unintended consequences of how credit card companies have responded to the legislation that has limited their ability to charge for processing services.

In the wake of the Durbin Amendment, card companies have done away with discounts they used to give on transaction fees for small amounts, usually under about $10. Now, companies such as Visa and MasterCard charge many small merchants at the max rate of 21 cents.

Most of all it means the profits of many of our local restaurants and bakeries are paying more and making less every time you swipe your card. National companies like Redbox added a $.20 extra fee to make up for it. If you are buying a set of tires or paying for cup of coffee, the interchange fee is the same. The Government intervention in the interchange system will most likely boost profits for giant national retailers but it will clearly harm the interests of our local businesses that deal in small tickets. Sometimes you can’t help but to use a credit card. If you can, try to use cash for those under $10 to help our local businesses. Plus, tip with cash. It’s much easier to deal with for the servers at restaurants.

If you are a local business that is trying to save money on processing, contact Kentucky CPS. Locally you can contact them at 270-303-4982.

Summer Break 2017 Is Safer with S&R Tire Center!

What makes us so afraid? We just don’t want to make the wrong decision. Then how do we get through the design process or remodeling?

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Wednesday, May 17th, 2017 7:00 AM CST

Repost from Blog’s Original Post on creativeinteriorsbg.com:

Making any decision is hard, even a small one.  We know that it will impact EVERYTHING!  So we are afraid to decide.  What makes us so afraid?  We just don’t want to make the wrong decision.  Then how do we get through the design process or remodeling?

One step at a time.  Yes, the impact of your decision to buy a stainless steel dishwasher or a BLACK stainless steel dishwasher does affect the feeling of the room.  It will not impact the performance of the dishwasher in anyway but we do want it to match.  Well, match what??  Should we match the faucets that are brushed nickel?  Or the light fixtures that are chrome?  Let’s start with the first standard which is all appliances should be the same finish.  That being said, if you choose Black stainless steel appliances that doe NOT mean you need to have black faucets.  We look at the room as a whole and decided how to make it balance.  In this case, appliances need to compliment the cabinets.  No punch of color here!  See it’s really just a process of elimination.  What color will work best with the cabinets?  If you have white cabinets, either will work.  Stained cabinets go with stainless steel.  Most painted or glazed cabinets will lead toward either one as well.  Base the decision on which one you liked initially and go with it.

 

 

cr-home-ii-black-stainless-samsung-10-15cr-home-ii-black-stainless-lg-10-15

 

See that wasn’t so hard.  After 3 or 4 decisions are made you will see the room come together.  Then each decision will get easier because you have a direction.  Of course, if you struggle you can always call a interior designer/decorator for assistance.  Sometimes it is good to have someone look at the project from the outside and give advice.  Girlfriends are always great to help but we want them to stay our friends.  A good decorator will sit down with you and help you decide what is important and how to prioritize.  You don’t need to have them for the whole project if it is cost prohibited but I think you will find a new friend that is objective to your wants & needs.

Your Child’s Baby Teeth are important! Keep Baby Bottle Tooth Decay Away with these tips from Destiny Dental!

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Monday, May 15th, 2017 3:00 PM CST

Your child’s baby teeth are at risk for decay as soon as they first appear—which is typically around age 6 months. Tooth decay in infants and toddlers is often referred to as Baby Bottle Tooth Decay. It most often occurs in the upper front teeth, but other teeth may also be affected. In some cases, infants and toddlers experience decay so severe that their teeth cannot be saved and need to be removed.

The good news is that tooth decay is preventable! Most children have a full set of 20 baby teeth by the time they are 3-years-old. As your child grows, their jaws also grow, making room for their permanent teeth.

Cleaning Your Child’s Teeth 

  • Begin cleaning your baby’s mouth during the first few days after birth by wiping the gums with a clean, moist gauze pad or washcloth. As soon as teeth appear, decay can occur. A baby’s front four teeth usually push through the gums at about 6 months of age, although some children don’t have their first tooth until 12 or 14 months.
  • For children younger than 3 years, caregivers should begin brushing children’s teeth as soon as they begin to come into the mouth by using fluoride toothpaste in an amount no more than a smear or the size of a grain of rice. Brush teeth thoroughly twice per day (morning and night) or as directed by a dentist or physician. Supervise children’s brushing to ensure that they use of the appropriate amount of toothpaste.
  • For children 3 to 6 years of age, use a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. Brush teeth thoroughly twice per day (morning and night) or as directed by a dentist or physician. Supervise children’s brushing and remind them not to swallow the toothpaste.
  • Until you’re comfortable that your child can brush on his or her own, continue to brush your child’s teeth twice a day with a child-size toothbrush and a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. When your child has two teeth that touch, you should begin flossing their teeth daily.

Call Destiny Dental for more questions about Dental Insurance or to see if you a can schedule an appointment. They are located at 1720 Destiny Lane and can be reached by phone at 842-3554. Don’t forget to fan them on facebook.

Creative Interiors: “Color?? I can’t decide!! What color should I do?”

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/

One step at a time.  Yes, the impact of your decision to buy a stainless steel dishwasher or a BLACK stainless steel dishwasher does affect the feeling of the room.  It will not impact the performance of the dishwasher in anyway but we do want it to match.  Well, match what??  Should we match the faucets that are brushed nickel?  Or the light fixtures that are chrome?  Let’s start with the first standard which is all appliances should be the same finish.  That being said, if you choose Black stainless steel appliances that doe NOT mean you need to have black faucets.  We look at the room as a whole and decided how to make it balance.  In this case, appliances need to compliment the cabinets.  No punch of color here!  See it’s really just a process of elimination.  What color will work best with the cabinets?  If you have white cabinets, either will work.  Stained cabinets go with stainless steel.  Most painted or glazed cabinets will lead toward either one as well.  Base the decision on which one you liked initially and go with it.

cr-home-ii-black-stainless-samsung-10-15cr-home-ii-black-stainless-lg-10-15

 

See that wasn’t so hard.  After 3 or 4 decisions are made you will see the room come together.  Then each decision will get easier because you have a direction.  Of course, if you struggle you can always call a interior designer/decorator for assistance.  Sometimes it is good to have someone look at the project from the outside and give advice.  Girlfriends are always great to help but we want them to stay our friends.  A good decorator will sit down with you and help you decide what is important and how to prioritize.  You don’t need to have them for the whole project if it is cost prohibited but I think you will find a new friend that is objective to your wants & needs.

All diabetic patients should keep up to date on their healthcare visits to assess diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy. At home, you can check your feet daily for cuts, sores, blisters, redness, or other problems. Report any problems to your primary physician. Also, have your eyes checked every year to assess any changes in vision that may occur. It is also important for you to monitor your blood glucose to determine how your diabetes managment plan is working. You should also record these numbers in a diary and take them to your next physician appointment to allow for the best possible care.

Destiny Dental: Keeping Your Child’s Teeth Healthy and Clean in 2017, It’s Simple and Easy! Bowling Green’s Family Dentist.

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Wednesday, April 5th, 2017 7:00 AM CST

Your child’s baby teeth are at risk for decay as soon as they first appear—which is typically around age 6 months. Tooth decay in infants and toddlers is often referred to as Baby Bottle Tooth Decay. It most often occurs in the upper front teeth, but other teeth may also be affected. In some cases, infants and toddlers experience decay so severe that their teeth cannot be saved and need to be removed.

The good news is that tooth decay is preventable! Most children have a full set of 20 baby teeth by the time they are 3-years-old. As your child grows, their jaws also grow, making room for their permanent teeth.

Cleaning Your Child’s Teeth 

  • Begin cleaning your baby’s mouth during the first few days after birth by wiping the gums with a clean, moist gauze pad or washcloth. As soon as teeth appear, decay can occur. A baby’s front four teeth usually push through the gums at about 6 months of age, although some children don’t have their first tooth until 12 or 14 months.
  • For children younger than 3 years, caregivers should begin brushing children’s teeth as soon as they begin to come into the mouth by using fluoride toothpaste in an amount no more than a smear or the size of a grain of rice. Brush teeth thoroughly twice per day (morning and night) or as directed by a dentist or physician. Supervise children’s brushing to ensure that they use of the appropriate amount of toothpaste.
  • For children 3 to 6 years of age, use a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. Brush teeth thoroughly twice per day (morning and night) or as directed by a dentist or physician. Supervise children’s brushing and remind them not to swallow the toothpaste.
  • Until you’re comfortable that your child can brush on his or her own, continue to brush your child’s teeth twice a day with a child-size toothbrush and a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. When your child has two teeth that touch, you should begin flossing their teeth daily.

Call Destiny Dental for more questions about Dental Insurance or to see if you a can schedule an appointment. They are located at 1720 Destiny Lane and can be reached by phone at 842-3554. Don’t forget to fan them on facebook.

April is Autism Awareness Month. This is why it matters To Spencer’s Coffee!

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Thursday, March 30th, 2017 7:00 AM CST

This is from a very personal post from www.spencerscoffee.com/blog/ last year and we think it’s appropriate to tackle this month with another look at this honest and beautiful post by The Shepherd Family:

In 2008, Spencer’s Coffee owners Justin & Shelley Shepherd found out that their 2-year-old son, Lewis, had Autism Spectrum Disorder; a few years later, their second son, Owen, was diagnosed as being on the spectrum as well. And because Justin & Shelley know firsthand the struggles of raising children with autism — and the challenges faced by these courageous kids — Spencer’s works year-round to help further the cause of autism awareness and the efforts of those helping families who deal with autism.

Every April is Autism Awareness Month, and at Spencer’s, that means Owen’s Orange Sodas and Lewis Lattes on the menu. Owen’s Orange is an Italian soda made with mandarin and coconut flavors, while the Lewis Latte adds a bit of toasted marshmallow flavor to our already popular espresso drink. $1 from the sale of each of these drinks goes to an organization that’s helping the autism community; this year’s beneficiary is the Renshaw Early Childhood Development Center at WKU, whose “Big Red School” has been attended by both Lewis and Owen.

Below is an article Shelley wrote for this month’s SOKY Happenings magazine, detailing the challenges and blessings of raising kids on the spectrum. We hope you’ll find time to come grab one of these delicious drinks this month; you may even see Lewis (now 7) or Owen (now 5) running through the store for their afternoon pick-me-ups! And if you suspect your child may be on the autism spectrum or need help identifying developmental delays, feel free to email shelleygwen@gmail.com — she may not have the answers you need, but she’ll definitely direct you to people right here in southcentral Kentucky who do.

Putting Back the Pieces: A Story of Autism

In June of 2006, we were blessed with our first child, a son. We name him Lewis, after C.S. Lewis, a favorite writer of both myself and Justin. I had always pictured motherhood as “my calling” and just knew that my children would be on the honor roll — smart and well-behaved. I imagined a relationship where they would tell me about their thoughts, hopes, dreams and fears, one where I would help them think critically and make good decisions. 

Shortly after Lewis’ birth, the nurses whisked him away to neonatal intensive care due to respiratory problems; tests showed he had a blood infection which turned out to be Group-B strep. After 10 days in the NICU in Nashville, Lewis recovered and we all went home, happy to leave the drama behind us! 

Feedings were difficult, but he caught on eventually. I was determined because my mother, who had died three years earlier, had breastfed us; it seemed like a way to honor her example, plus I knew it was best for Lewis. Around 5 months old, he got really good at nursing, and at 6 months he sat up for the first time. 

We were in a weekly play group with other babies about his age, and I noticed that they all seemed to be progressing more quickly than Lewis. He didn’t seem eager to be mobile. He would play with the same toy for hours at a time, and not in the way it was meant to be played with. He was slow to roll over, and he never crawled; at 11 months or so, we would place him next to a table or couch in a standing position, and he started to cruise around by holding onto whatever was nearby.

Using a walker, he made his way around the house, but would have terrible falls. At 13 months he took his first steps. I remember telling my play group that I thought something was wrong with him. He seemed distant; he wasn’t saying words; there was little joint attention.

By 14 months I called First Steps to get him assessed. Sadly, my doctor wasn’t concerned and hadn’t referred me, so it was a bit of a mystery how to even call them! As feared, Lewis was way behind in speech, gross motor and fine motor skills. But, with the help of an amazing developmental interventionist, Lewis learned how to stand up from a sitting position for the first time at 16 months. He also started clapping and waving around the same time.

We were thrilled with this progress, but very concerned because his babbling had gone down to essentially one sound, “guh guh.” This was his only sound for over a year, and it was heart-wrenching to see the other little ones saying “mama” and “dada.”

When Lewis turned 2 and was making little progress with speech, we knew we had a major problem. We suspected autism a year before, but naively hoped Lewis was merely delayed and would catch up. We put Lewis in a mom’s day out program and the teacher asked me if we thought he had autism. A former schoolteacher, she said he reminded her of autistic kids she’d had in her class. 

I checked out the book Facing Autism by Lynn Hamilton and devoured it. The book presented enough similarities that I KNEW this was our answer, so Justin and I requested an intensive level evaluation through First Steps at the Weisskopf Child Evaluation Center in Louisville. On November 12, 2008, Lewis was officially diagnosed with Autistic Disorder, now known as Autism Spectrum Disorder. (Our second son, Owen, was also diagnosed in 2011 through a sibling study at Vanderbilt.) 

Yes, it was sad, and something of a shock — but it was also a gift. Since then, I have realized a diagnosis is key to unlocking all kinds of services that tremendously help children with ASDs. I got involved with the Autism & Asperger Support Group of Bowling Green, and parents from the group helped me pursue medicaid waivers, speech and occupational therapy services, and specific providers that have made a huge difference for Lewis and for us. I now help lead the support group because I know how important it is for families to get the resources they need.

Autism is not a death sentence. It changes your life for sure, but in many ways we have a richer life because of it. 

When Lewis said his first words just days before he turned 3, I can’t tell you the joy that flooded my heart. Any child speaking is amazing, but when you wait for that long, and work for six solids months using Applied Behavior Analysis (thanks to our BCBA, Amanda Reagan) and train family and friends to do therapy for hours a day, it means so much more! We saw steady progress once we had the right strategies in place.

April is Autism Awareness Month. Because early intervention is important, and because autism is growing in prevalence (1 in 54 boys, according to current data), several groups are coming together for an Autism Family Night from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. April 8th at Chick-Fil-A (1766 Campbell Ln.). There will be fun activities for kids, but the main purpose is to offer free autism screenings for kids 12 months to 5 years old. Anyone who completes a screener will be entered in a drawing for prizes. It only takes a few minutes to answer the questions and get results, and any child receiving an abnormal result will be referred to First Steps for further evaluation. If you have any concerns about your child’s development, or if you know of a child exhibiting any unexplained behaviors (OCD tendencies, rigid routine, odd speech or lack of speech, repetitive behaviors or obsessive interests), this screener may help point you in the right direction. This event is a collaboration of Lifeskills, Renshaw ECC at WKU, First Steps, Graves-Gilbert Clinic and the AASBG.

To receive AASBG Email announcements about future meetings or related information, email shelleygwen@gmail.com. If your child is under age 3 and you’d like a developmental assessment, call First Steps at (270) 901-5000.

All children with an ASD are different.  Here is a list of possible symptoms that many children with autism exhibit. If your child exhibits any of the following, please don’t delay in asking your pediatrician or family doctor for an evaluation:

  • Develops language slowly or not at all
  • Does not adjust gaze to look at objects that others are looking at
  • Does not refer to self correctly (for example, says “you want water” when the child means “I want water”)
  • Does not point to direct others’ attention to objects (occurs in the first 14 months of life)
  • Repeats words or memorized passages, such as commercials
  • No meaningful, two-word phrases (not including imitating or repeating) by 24 months
  • Difficulty with social skills at any age
  • Limited or no pretend play
  • Have unusual distress when routines are changed
  • Prefers to spend time alone, rather than with others
  • Has heightened or low senses of sight, hearing, touch, smell, or taste
  • Has very narrow interests

Hey, we know. Popping the Question is intense. Some tips to help you through it. First, consult Morris Jewelry for your ring and then….

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Thursday, March 23rd, 2017 10:00 AM CST

Hey, we know. Popping the Question is intense. Some tips to help you through it.

  • First, consult Morris Jewelry for your ring. I proposed in college not in this region and I went to the mall. Big mistake. Not only was it a ring you wanted to upgrade it’s not guaranteed they will last long (as these chains come and go). Morris has been serving Southern Kentucky since 1881!
  • Take one step back and listen. Maybe we jumped the gun. Once you’ve made the decision to propose, conversations about jewelry will become VERY IMPORTANT. You’ll look at every instagram photo she likes, every pinterest pin and any sort of glance she has at a friends ring. If you don’t have enough info, but you’ve both talked about marriage (which hopefully you have), you might even want to take a day to browse rings together at Morris. It doesn’t mean you should walk into Morris, pick one out, swipe the credit card, and propose right there (Although Jim and Sam have no policy against that). And although it may sound a little unromantic, it’ll definitely help ensure you end up giving her something she really likes.
  • We’re old fashioned. Ask for permission, it will help with your relationship with her family going forward. I can’t stress how nervous I was. My future Father in-law owned a Gun Store. So, I expected to walk into an arsenal ready to be used against me. My advice? Just do it. It’s really freeing and they respect you for not being secretive or discreet with them. And if you’re the traditional type, you’ll agree that the act of asking shows respect and appreciation for the other person’s family. They’ll love you more for it and that goes a long way in a relationship.
  • Unless you are the Pioneer in your circle most likely have a friend who’s married or at least engaged. Ask what they did when it comes to ring. Maybe they can give you tips (it’s been 20 years since we had to buy a ring so maybe there is a new trick).
  • As important as Family, talk to her girlfriends. You may have nailed it on her birthday or Christmas but this is the BIG ONE. Now is the time to hit it big. To be sure you score major points, confide in someone close to her to see if they know what she’s been thinking about, or if there was something she saw in a magazine that really caught her eye. You can also bring them with you to make the purchase, as a second opinion at Morris. Your girlfriend’s girlfriends will probably love nothing more than to come with you, do research for you or even help you plan the proposal. They are your best allies in this venture, hands-down. Just don’t tell too many people. (The more who know, the more likely it is that someone will accidentally let it slip.) Usually pick the closest friend who can tell the least amount of people or keep it off Snapchat.
  • Lastly, you need an expert diamond and ring buyer. The best is at Morris Jewelry. Yes, we are promoting them but we can not stress how many of our own friends were bailed out by choosing Morris to consult for the perfect engagement ring.

Visit Morris Jewelry, your trusted source for the finest jewelry in Bowling Green. Located on beautiful Fountain Square in Bowling Green. It’s like having a family member in the business when you are looking for a fair deal, remember Morris Jewelry. Get down to Main Street next to the Capitol Arts Center. Check out Morris Jewelry online.

Why we choose Bowling Green Pipe and Cigar for our watering hole. But Why?

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Friday, March 17th, 2017 1:00 PM CST

Admittedly we do not smoke Cigars as much as we used to in the past. Time constraints as Buy Local Bowling Green has grown has kept us out of our favorite bar, yes bar, in Bowling Green. If you enjoy witty banter, jokes that are both braggadocious and self deprecating you are going to Love Bowling Green Pipe and Cigar. The cigar selection is TOP SHELF as well as their Bourbon, Scotch, Rum etc etc. This place has exactly what you want if you are looking for more conversation than a trap house beat by 21 Savage.

First and foremost, it’s a tobacconist where their primary role is selling cigars and pipe tobacco but the drinks have been so on point people are flocking to wet their whistle. They have a smoking lounge that’s available for their customers to use open for use anytime. Like other lounges, they have their regulars from business men and professors to local artists and line cooks. If you want to discuss a topic there will be someone with an opinion and willing to discuss for as long as you’d like.

Gift Cards are available which is another great reason to choose the local shop over online. Check out Bowling Green Pipe and Cigar on facebook. Located at 434 East Main on fountain square you can reach them at 904-2285. Open Monday through Saturday 11:00 am-8:00 pm.

Vegan/Nutritarian Waffles from Buy Local Bowling Green!

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Thursday, March 16th, 2017 7:00 PM CST

We made the best Waffles this past Saturday morning that are perfect for Vegans/Nutritarians and anyone looking for a healthy option! The waffle is made with Rolled oats, flax meal, Bananas, orange zest, almond milk, cinnamon and walnuts! We added Beet Box Produce blueberries and some local maple syrup from Logan County we purchased at Rian’s Fatted Calf. We double the recipe and freeze some for later with heating up in microwave. Here is the full recipe we were asked for:

Prep Time: 10 minutes – Cook Time: 5 Minutes – Makes 4 square waffles

  • 2 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
  • Zest of 1/2 orange
  • 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups almond milk

Preheat a waffle iron. In a food processor or high-speed blender, combine the oats, walnuts, flax-seed meal, orange zest, cinnamon, banana and almond milk until a smooth pancake-like batter forms. The batter will be quite thick. If you prefer a thinner batter, add more almond milk.

Portion the batter thickly onto a preheated waffle iron and spread it out to all corners. Close the lid, and cook the waffle according to the manufacturer’s directions for your waffle iron. When done, remove the waffle from the iron. Top them with the fruit of your choice (we used both blueberries and banana) and grab some of the local syrup we scooped up from Rian’s fatted calf.

“Color?? I can’t decide!! What color should I do?” From Creative Interiors!

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Wednesday, March 15th, 2017 7:00 AM CST

Making any decision is hard, even a small one.  We know that it will impact EVERYTHING!  So we are afraid to decide.  What makes us so afraid?  We just don’t want to make the wrong decision.  Then how do we get through the design process or remodeling?

One step at a time.  Yes, the impact of your decision to buy a stainless steel dishwasher or a BLACK stainless steel dishwasher does affect the feeling of the room.  It will not impact the performance of the dishwasher in anyway but we do want it to match.  Well, match what??  Should we match the faucets that are brushed nickel?  Or the light fixtures that are chrome?  Let’s start with the first standard which is all appliances should be the same finish.  That being said, if you choose Black stainless steel appliances that doe NOT mean you need to have black faucets.  We look at the room as a whole and decided how to make it balance.  In this case, appliances need to compliment the cabinets.  No punch of color here!  See it’s really just a process of elimination.  What color will work best with the cabinets?  If you have white cabinets, either will work.  Stained cabinets go with stainless steel.  Most painted or glazed cabinets will lead toward either one as well.  Base the decision on which one you liked initially and go with it.

See that wasn’t so hard.  After 3 or 4 decisions are made you will see the room come together.  Then each decision will get easier because you have a direction.  Of course, if you struggle you can always call a interior designer/decorator for assistance.  Sometimes it is good to have someone look at the project from the outside and give advice.  Girlfriends are always great to help but we want them to stay our friends.  A good decorator will sit down with you and help you decide what is important and how to prioritize.  You don’t need to have them for the whole project if it is cost prohibited but I think you will find a new friend that is objective to your wants & needs.

“Why Should I and How Do I Check My Tire Pressure Level?” S&R Tire Center!

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Friday, March 10th, 2017 11:00 AM CST

By S&R Tire Expert Panel:

The safety of you and your passengers can depend on the pressure level of your vehicle’s tires! That’s because tires that are properly inflated are key to your vehicle’s handling, and under or over inflated tires can reduce stability and even cause a blowout.  How smooth the ride feels, how much mileage you get per gallon, and how long your tires last also depend on keeping the accurate pressure level. So, you’ll want to check the pressure in all your tires at least once a month. Here’s how:

Get a good tire gauge. The gauges at gas station air pumps are overused, so there’s a good chance they may not be accurate. It’s better to keep your own in your glove compartment. It’s well worth the small cost. Gauges run from about $6 for a reliable pencil-sized style with pressure-indicating notches, to about $10 – $16 and up for battery-operated digital models. Some of those are even programmable to “remember” the recommended pressure for your vehicle.

Find the recommended tire pressure level for your vehicle. This information is in your owner’s manual. Often, it’s on a sticker in the front door jamb on the driver’s side, too. The level is given in pounds per square inch (PSI). Also, tires usually have a recommended PSI number on them. If there’s a discrepancy between the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation and the number on the tire, you can contact your Best-One store for guidance.

Let your vehicle “rest” from driving before measuring the tire pressure. Accurate readings depend on the air in the tires being cool, so it’s best to measure after your vehicle hasn’t been driven for a couple of hours. If that isn’t possible, give it at least 30 minutes.

To check the pressure, unscrew the cap on your tire’s valve stem, and press the gauge’s nozzle onto it evenly. You might hear a slight hiss as a bit of air escapes when you place the gauge on the valve stem, but that will stop when you push the gauge down firmly. It only takes a second or two for the gauge to register the current pressure by extending the stick on a pencil-type gauge or showing the number read-out on a digital style. As you check each tire, compare the results with the recommended level.

Replace the cap on the tire’s valve stem. Then follow up on getting those tires properly inflated!  Beyond the monthly check, it’s also a good idea to check before any trip that’s going to have you on the road for a while or if there’s been a sudden extreme change in the environmental temperature. Remember, if you need further information or help, just contact your local Best-One. We’re glad to be of service.

Bowling Green Pipe & Cigar’s Spring Trifecta of Bourbon & Cigars. Who will be our Win, Place, & Show?

Bowling Green Pipe & Cigar’s Spring Trifecta. Who will Win, Place, & Show?

13161425_10205725955381115_1773966662_o

WIN:

  • Colonel E.H. Taylor Jr. Straight Rye Whiskey 100 Proof: Colonel Taylor is widely considered one of the founding fathers of the bourbon industry, fighting for the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897, nearly three decades after he purchased the now Buffalo Trace Distillery. Now he’s honored with this Single Barrel Bourbon. While most rye whiskeys are made with corn as an ingredient, this is a unique rye whiskey made only with rye and malted barley. This spicy and full-bodied 100 proof Straight Rye Whiskey pays tribute to the classic American whiskey style and the Bottled in Bond Act of 1897. On the nose, this whiskey is full of dried fruit, black pepper and a touch of fresh dill. A small sip brings an array of flavors both sweet and savory with a terrific balance of dark spices and subtle caramel overtones. The finish is especially pleasing with an oaky dryness that lingers just long enough.
  • Padron Family Reserve “The Little Hammer” 50 Years. In Celebration of Padrons 50th Anniversar, the limited production Family Reserve 50 Years box pressed cigar is Buy Local Bowling Green’s favorite cigar. Aged tobacco a minimum of 10 years and is available in both Natural & Maduro sun-grown wrapper.

13147999_10205725955621121_1727939817_o

PLACE:

  • Bulleit® Bourbon 10 Year Old: Bulleit® Bourbon 10 Year Old is Tom Bulleit’s selected reserve. Aged in charred American white oak, select Bulleit® Bourbon barrels were set aside to age for 10 years. The result is a special expression of Bulleit that provides a rich, deep, incredibly smooth sipping experience.
  • Camacho American Barrel Aged Robusto tubos: Utilizing tobaccos aged in bourbon barrels for 5 months in the Dominican Republic, Camacho breaks the mold with their latest installment. With the spirit of America and the essence of a true frontier, Camacho American Barrel-Aged is truly a monumental cigar. It unites the hardworking spirit of Kentucky’s bourbon maker’s and Camacho’s master builders. At its core is six-year-old Corojo leaves, American broadleaf, and Pennsylvania maduro that has been locked away in charred Kentucky bourbon barrels. In order to extract the characteristics of Kentucky bourbon and American Oak, Camacho’s master builders take on this arduous process for five months straight. Wrapped in rugged, all-American broadleaf tobaccos, Camacho American Barrel-Aged delivers a richness and complexity accentuated by notes of oak and sweet bourbon aromas. This intense and fiery, medium to full-bodied blend is an unforgettable experience that blazes new frontiers in complexity.

13161282_10205725953941079_616316049_o

SHOW:

  • Jefferson’s Reserve – This is Jefferson’s flagship bourbon where they define the Jefferson’s taste: big and bold with hints of spice, toffee and leather. The Reserve is the perfect marriage of four different recipes of bourbon, one of which is an elder statesman. The result is bourbon that, like Thomas Jefferson, is sophisticated, complex and unforgettable.
  • AVO Classic no. 2- This cigar is the harmony of two cigar legends – Avo Uvezian and Master Blender Hendrik Kelner. Their collaboration offers an unforgettable experience of balance, enjoyment and refined taste. This inviting blend is composed using rare tobaccos that have been aged for 25 years.

Gift Cards are available which is another great reason to choose the local shop over online. Check out Bowling Green Pipe and Cigar onfacebook. Located at 434 East Main on fountain square you can reach them at 904-2285. Open Monday through Saturday 11:00 am-8:00 pm.

Buy Local Tobacco for Your Local Loving Cigar Smoker at Bowling Green Pipe and Cigar.

Screen-Shot-2016-11-20-at-8.49.09-PM-1024x688

The Cigar Smoker is a tough one to buy for but make it easy this Valentine’s Day. One thing we love with Southern Kentucky’s  local businesses like Bowling Green Pipe & Cigar give us options like the Kentucky Fire Cured cigar.

screen-shot-2016-11-20-at-8-49-16-pm

The biggest difference with Kentucky Fire-Cured is the inclusion of – you guessed it! – American fire-cured tobacco leaves from Kentucky and Virginia. While normally tobacco is air-cured, these special leaves are left to hang in specially-constructed curing barns, a process that dates back more than 200 years and that imbues each leaf with a rich, smoky, slightly sweet flavor that boasts exceptional balance and uniqueness. Notes of oak, hickory, and maple-laced sweetness explode on the palate.

Gift Cards are available which is another great reason to choose the local shop over online. Check out Bowling Green Pipe and Cigar onfacebook. Located at 434 East Main on fountain square you can reach them at 904-2285. Open Monday through Saturday 11:00 am-8:00 pm.

What makes us so afraid? We just don’t want to make the wrong decision. Then how do we get through the design process or remodeling?

CR-Home-II-Black-Stainless-LG-10-15

Repost from Blog’s Original Post on creativeinteriorsbg.com:

Making any decision is hard, even a small one.  We know that it will impact EVERYTHING!  So we are afraid to decide.  What makes us so afraid?  We just don’t want to make the wrong decision.  Then how do we get through the design process or remodeling?

One step at a time.  Yes, the impact of your decision to buy a stainless steel dishwasher or a BLACK stainless steel dishwasher does affect the feeling of the room.  It will not impact the performance of the dishwasher in anyway but we do want it to match.  Well, match what??  Should we match the faucets that are brushed nickel?  Or the light fixtures that are chrome?  Let’s start with the first standard which is all appliances should be the same finish.  That being said, if you choose Black stainless steel appliances that doe NOT mean you need to have black faucets.  We look at the room as a whole and decided how to make it balance.  In this case, appliances need to compliment the cabinets.  No punch of color here!  See it’s really just a process of elimination.  What color will work best with the cabinets?  If you have white cabinets, either will work.  Stained cabinets go with stainless steel.  Most painted or glazed cabinets will lead toward either one as well.  Base the decision on which one you liked initially and go with it.

 

 

cr-home-ii-black-stainless-samsung-10-15cr-home-ii-black-stainless-lg-10-15

 

See that wasn’t so hard.  After 3 or 4 decisions are made you will see the room come together.  Then each decision will get easier because you have a direction.  Of course, if you struggle you can always call a interior designer/decorator for assistance.  Sometimes it is good to have someone look at the project from the outside and give advice.  Girlfriends are always great to help but we want them to stay our friends.  A good decorator will sit down with you and help you decide what is important and how to prioritize.  You don’t need to have them for the whole project if it is cost prohibited but I think you will find a new friend that is objective to your wants & needs.

Starting in 2015 a major milestone where the fraud liability on credit and debit transactions shifted to the merchant for all point of sale devices. To better combat fraud, Southern Kentucky merchants will have more reasons to ensure their point-of-sale capability is ready to accept EMV chip-based credit and debit cards. That’s why Buy Local Bowling Green and Kentucky CPS have teamed up to offer a better service on taking credit cards in retail and online. One of those ways is with the Clover Station and the Clover Mini.

clover-devices-3

Clover Mini redefines the payment terminal accepting all forms of payments with ease including EMV chip cards while providing business owners with an “all-in-one” solution to streamline operations, expand business and customer intelligence, and improve the customer experience, all while facilitating payments in a safe, secure environment. It’s the sleekest, most flexible and secure terminal around. It comes EMV-enabled to accept chip cards, Apple Pay™, Android Pay™, smartphones, mobile devices and magnetic-strip cards so you can protect your customers, business and reputation from fraud.

Give customers the convenience of paying with multiple payment types. Protect their sensitive information – as well as your own – and have the flexibility you’ve always wanted without the hassle of a big business system.

Clover Mini is intuitive and easy to use. Right out of the box, you’ll be able to:

  • Accept more payments from magnetic strip and EMV® Chip credit and debit cards to contactless – all without additional equipment or complicated software.
  • Protect your customers, business and reputation from fraud with built-in TransArmor® Solution.

The Spring Will Come Soon Enough. Choose your New Flooring with the Local Choice, Grinstead’s Flooring!

10462557_941279805886578_6750796699346819498_n

Thursday, January 5th, 2016 12:00 PM CST

The one thing we noticed when we started this project of promoting local businesses was the amount of local businesses hire local people to their small business. One of our partners is Grinstead’s flooring a furnishing and they hire exclusively local workers to our region. With 2 sales representatives (plus Owner, Gary Grinstead) who are from Warren County and at any time three crews of two that do their installs the staff is comprised of neighbors who want to help make Bowling Green beautiful, one home at a time. So when you shop at Grinstead’s you know that most of the dollars you spend not only go back in local taxes but, that they are going to pay for the hard work of local workers and salespeople.

With this local staff at Grinstead’s you receive the customer service that is all but a memory in many of the big out of town box stores. You get people who make it a point to know your needs and wants and to try to achieve those needs an wants. It’s not rare to see a Grinstead’s sales representative arriving to a home to measure the job and to bring samples to their home so they can see what the flooring will look like in that person’s home.

Grinstead’s sales reps help you guide through this very important process because they know how important it is to get the job done right the first time. Same goes for the install crew. Many of these crews have been working with Gary at Grinstead’s for years. Gary has made it his mission to be well versed in the latest in the industry and to have a crew that is well prepared to take you from step one to finish of the project.

Please be sure to check out Grinstead’s Flooring and Furnishings online or at their store located at 1353 Old Louisville Road. If you’d like to Gary or one of the helpful staff at Grinstead’s they can be reached in Bowling Green at 270.843.1072.

Last year we started Buy Local Month. Not because we weren’t happy about Small Business Saturday but because we believe shopping local, being entertained locally and acting local shouldn’t be contained to one day after the big box stores had their sales. We wanted our community to be one that supported our local musicians, artists, musicians and children during this holiday season. We have started delivering our Holiday issue of our magazine and you can pick those up at partner locations. This is going to be a page you want to book mark as we have become a curator of all things local. Here are some of the events, sales and other things you may want to see this week:

Buy Local Tobacco for Your Local Loving Cigar Smoker at Bowling Green Pipe and Cigar.

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/

The Cigar Smoker is a tough one to buy for this Holiday Season. One thing we love with Southern Kentucky’s Buy Local Month 2016 is when local businesses like Bowling Green Pipe & Cigar give us options like the Kentucky Fire Cured cigar.

screen-shot-2016-11-20-at-8-49-16-pm

The biggest difference with Kentucky Fire-Cured is the inclusion of – you guessed it! – American fire-cured tobacco leaves from Kentucky and Virginia. While normally tobacco is air-cured, these special leaves are left to hang in specially-constructed curing barns, a process that dates back more than 200 years and that imbues each leaf with a rich, smoky, slightly sweet flavor that boasts exceptional balance and uniqueness. Notes of oak, hickory, and maple-laced sweetness explode on the palate.

Gift Cards are available which is another great reason to choose the local shop over online. Check out Bowling Green Pipe and Cigar onfacebook. Located at 434 East Main on fountain square you can reach them at 904-2285. Open Monday through Saturday 11:00 am-8:00 pm.
