July 11, 2012 The Julian News 5 Washington I:OO to 5:00 to 4 CANDLES QUILTING BOOKS Eleanor Burns Most Popular Titles GRAPE TRAYWALL ART Downtown Julian - Cole Bldg 2116 Main Street - Up Stairs A Sunday The Prius Special - Alice Wallace Tour Comes To Wynola With a guitar, a voice, and a few hastily recorded songs, Alice moved to California to see what the bright lights of LA had to offer a girl from a small town on the East Coast. Now three years later, Alice is set to release her debut album that she recorded with the help of engineer/producer Anthony Arvizu of The Compound Studio in Long Beach, and is poised to hit the road to start promoting it. She'll also be launching a new Web site, and offering fans all sorts of ways to get involved in helping her make her dream a reality. Since moving to southern California, Alice's shows have included opening for acts like Lisa Loeb, Sophie B. Hawkins andShawn Mullins. With each show, she gains a little more confidence, and learns a little more about what it takes to make a mark in the music business For Alice's second trip up the West coast, (and up to Julian) she'll be doing things a little differently. This time, New Orleans-based upright bassist Ryan Donohue will be joining her, and they,ll be performing stripped-down versions of Alice's material, plus a wide range of folk and blues songs. An accomplished blues and folk musician, Ryan has spent the last 15 years playing in various ensembles in New Orleans. He has also toured extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe. This Sunday in a special evening starting at five, Alice and Ryan will perform on the Wynola Pizza patio and give you a Sunday evening to remember. Check out Alice's FaceBook page for links to tour videos, including the loading of the Prius, Stand Up Bass and all. With this her third trip to Wynola, she is establishing herself as a strong contributor to the local music scene and not someone you want to miss. Julian Historical Society Holds Presentations every Fourth Wednesday Of The Month at The Historical Society Building 2133 4th Street 7:00pm by Michele Harvey Walking Around Town My gift shop. Julian Yesteryears, is on Main Street, in downtown Julian. Because of my location, people ask me all sorts of questions about our little town. Beyond the historical questions which I love to answer and beyond discussing the best apple pies and the location of the public restrooms, I like the challenge of questions of whether or not a person can buy certain items in town. One recent day I walked into The Birdwatcher looking for a bottle brush to clean my hummingbird feeders. I own several bottle brushes already, but none was just right for the feeders. Some are too narrow to clean the bottle shoulders and one is too stiff and thick to slide through the bottle neck. After looking at all the bottle brushes at the Birdwatcher, I found one that is perfect. It is softer than the one I already own and wide enough without-being too wide for my hummingbird feeders which have a neck about the size of the one on a quart size vinegar bottle. Success! After finding my brush, I talked with Brenda, co-owner of The Birdwatcher, about my feeders and she showed me one of the best inventions I've ever seen. Anyone who has hummingbird feeders probably knows the problems of keeping earwigs and ants out of the feeders where they die and spoil the nectar. I've always rubbed petroleum jelly onto the hooks or wires where I hang my feedersl This has never been a good idea because the jelly can melt and become useless. It can also get on the bird feathers which can cause birds huge problems because they have no way to remove it. However, it was the only way I knew to keep the insects out of my feeders. Brenda showed me a device that hangs between the hook and the bottle. Essentially it's a cup that you fill with water. The hook hangs inside the water where the ants and earwigs can't cross the water barrier. The result is clean, ant free nectar. This little cup is incredibly useful and a really simple solution. Another day I walked into The Warm Hearth to say hello to my friends who work there. One of my favorite stops in town is the kitchen room at the right, up a few stairs as I walk in. In the kitchen room I can find lots of useful items including a straining lid to strain the liquid out of a can of fruits or vegetables without having anything solid slide out. Years ago I bought one of my very favorite kitchen utensils in this room and they still stock them. For under $10.00 you can buy a rubber scraper that stays in good shape when used over 500 degrees. I've been using mine to scrape out jam pots and hot frying pans for over 10 years and it still looks and feels new. At The Warm Hearth they carry these scrapers in 3 or 4 sizes so we have choices. The Warm Hearth is also one of the few shops in town where a person can buy music CDs. In my shop, I sell CDs of musicians who play at Wynola Pizza. In Yesteryears we sell mostly San Diego based and mostly Western and Bluegrass CDs. The Warm Hearth carries a nice selection of Smoky Mountain, Western and Celtic tunes. I like Celtic tunes for all the different moods they blend. Walking a few doors down I walked in to the Julian Hardware store. Not only do most of their prices compete easily with the big guys, I like looking at individual selections of really useful stuff. For instance; they sell cast iron cooking pans. Cast iron is great for camping and also for cooking at home. The Julian Hardware store has a good selection of sizes and types. If you need glue, this is the place to look for it. They have wood glues, glues to mix to get a really tight bond and several.kinds of super glue. I was amazed when I found glass glue there. I didn't know that glass glue could be bought at a neighborhood store. I thought it would be a.special order item where I had to find it online. Using my eyes, I find ail sorts of interesting and useful things at the stores in Julian. Another day I will spend some time adventuring through more stores in Julian. I'm not a secret shopper. I'm just a person who likes to discover things as I walk around town. These are my thoughts.
