I own a gift shop, Julian Yesteryears, and he owns this newspaper, The Julian News. The economy has affected us as it has so many people across the country. As shops make less money; their newspaper ads get smaller, or they just go away. Newspapers are suffering financially throughout the country just as retail shops and other businesses are. Even though I try to have lots of useful things for sale at my shop, my income goes down some every month. When people are scared of losing their jobs, they don't want to buy unnecessary items, and I understand their attitudes completely. This week's decorative item might need to be next week's groceries. Most every one has to cut back. rm cutting back by moving my shop from Main Street Julian to Wynola Farms Marketplace. My cost of doing business won't be as high and rm optimistic about my business. I really enjoy owning my own shop. Even though the hours are longer than when I worked for someone else and the paperwork sometimes seems endless; I like that I can set my own hours and stay open as long as I want. I can donate items and time to organizations in need of raising money, and I like the feeling of selling something that I picked out for the shop. Owning my own business still allows me to talk with people from all over the world as they visit our beautiful mountain community. Now I'm moving my shop to Wynola. I'm selling many things at a 50% discount because I have a renewed vision for my store. It doesn't include much jewelry because I won't have enough lighting to show it well. I'm selling off all the more modern things I have now, sticking with the more old fashioned and hand made items. Some of my favorites will go with me and rll add new merchandise, going even more toward my theme of having an old fashioned store with lots of handmade goods, rll keep the hand dipped candles, the locally made soaps and lotions, books about our area and our local history, grape tray art from central California and tin signs made in Ohio. rve always liked Wynola We live in Wynola because it's calm, with lots of open land. It's a friendly place and the shopkeepers who are already in the location where my shop will be, are welcoming me with enthusiasm. Having friendly helpful neighbors is good for us all. That's how Wynola feels to me. The neighborhood where we live in Wynola has the same feeling. As I get older, these things become more important to me. These days some of life's luxuries can include friendly neighbors. I worked for other people for over forty years. Everyone I worked for had something good to teach me and I also learned how I wouldn't run my business if I ever owned one. Retail is what I know and working with people is what I like to do, so in March of 2005 we bought Julian Yesteryears from Dana Pettersen who bought it from Joni Beckman, who started the business in 1988. I think I owe it to those two women and to myself to keep Julian Yesteryears running successfully. This move is my attempt to be available to my regular customers and also to be visible to those people I haven't met yet who travel through this area. Sometimes we have to adapt to situations, like having less money. Other times we have to regroup. Moving my shop and adjusting the direction of the goods I sell; I'm regrouping and hoping we all the recession with smiles and cheerful attitudes. These are my thoughts. In old Germany it was believed, a magical being with a white dress, large feet and an iron nose gently rocks crying infants to sleep when no one else will, - "t#n _ .... When Machines And Monsters Meet The Classics (NAPSA)-How do you improve a classic? Just add robots, cyborgs and interstellar space travel. That's what Quirk Books and best-selling author Ben H. Winters did when they re-imagined Leo Tolstoy's masterpiece to create "Android Karenina, "a steampunk-inspired retelling of "Anna Karenina." story and rewrote the love story within the context of a larger- than-life science fiction novel. The pursuit of love can be tantalizingly terrifying - especially when you add a robot uprising. Jason Rekulak, associate publisher at Quirk Books and editor of the Quirk Classics series, explains: "Everyone remembers 'Anna Karenina' for the romance and adultery, but Tolstoy's novel also explored how new technology was changing the landscape of 19th century Russia." Rekulak asked Ben H. Winters, author of The New York Times best seller and monsterpiece "Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters," to push that new technology even further. Winters introduced robots and rocket ships to the Quirk Books began the literary mash-up craze in 2009 with The New York Times best- selling "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" by Seth Grahame- Smith and Jane Austen. With more than 1 million copies in print, it has been translated into 20 languages and optioned to become a film starring Natalie Portman. Inspired by the original novel, Quirk recently published "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls," a prequel by award-winning novelist Steve Hockensmith. Already a New York Times best seller, this terrifying and hilarious book explains the genesis of the zombie plague in early 19th-century England and tells the story of young Elizabeth Bennett evolving from a young teenager into a slayer of the undead. All four books are available wherever books are sold.
