Over Coffee with Ellen: Business idea ‘leaves’ us with ample opportunities | Columns

Listening to a early morning communicate exhibit even though undertaking housework, at minimum for me, makes the task less complicated to finish (on most times).

At instances, there are sit down times for rigorous listening.

On situation, there is an writer with a new book — the title of which I jot down for looking at.

And at situations, I find intriguing gifts to purchase and household decorating recommendations to observe.

A short while ago there was a segment on slide décor.

I paused to listen, thinking probably there would be a decorating suggestion that I could use to make our property a lot more wonderful

The “expert” in fall décor commenced with leaves across the desk for the television hosts to use adhering to her instructions (not one on this day were what I could possibly choose to do for our household).

What I identified intriguing, even though, was the point that the lady presenting the decorating strategies experienced ordered leaves for use in her phase.

She told viewers that she experienced uncovered from a friend dwelling in Florida about staying able to purchase leaves on the internet.

Her friend needed her children to delight in leaves in the fall and now buys them just about every calendar year so her youngsters can play in the acquired leaves!

She confirmed the leaves, describing how she had ordered them on line from Colorado.

The total box (about 1 foot sq.), she instructed viewers, had only value $25!

I smiled as I considered maybe that could be a new enterprise for the north region: packaged leaves to provide to those people in warmer climates, most likely buddies in Florida or California!

Saturday, I walked earlier my beloved tumble maple tree — the leaves rustled below foot and turned over as I walked via them.

The reds and yellows have been specially beautiful that morning.

We are so privileged to live in the north country where by we can experience slide in all of its splendor, at no cost for the acquire of leaves or for transport and managing!

As I drove residence, I recognized Donnie Comins doing the job in his property with a leaf blower.

I believed maybe I need to end and share the tale of leaves currently being sold for use by other individuals not as lucky!

I did not cease but have wondered if everyone else noticed that tv segment endorsing the sale of leaves on the web.

I hope another person locally did.

I hope by up coming fall I can share with you information of a new north country organization, “Local Leaves For Sale.”

We have a item here that other individuals seemingly are searching for — I feel we have sufficient leaves to share with many others.

What enjoyment to make a gain with that sharing.

SENSATIONAL ANTHEM Overall performance

The Gardener has often liked seeing football — the two higher education and the Nationwide Soccer League game titles.

With the games viewed in our dwelling, just before extended I was drawn in, too.

I before long recognized that in purchase to make match watching at all appealing, you had to have a favored staff to cheer on.

My staff shortly became the New York Jets.

We ended up even fortunate just one calendar year whilst traveling to our son and his loved ones to be ready to attend a Jets match with them.

Lifestyle throughout football period is most appealing when other people know your favourite workforce.

Mike Gagne on Major Street is a devoted Pittsburgh Steeler enthusiast.

Many others cheer for the Miami Dolphins with Buffalo Bob in Rochester a devoted Buffalo Charges lover.

My good friend Phil likes legendary Jets quarterback Joe Namath but is not a admirer of the group.

Each time our teams are playing each other, there are always friendly feedback built about my crew — most moments in current many years, individuals feedback have been in derision.

Just lately, existence as a Jets supporter has been tricky, to say the the very least.

Sunday, the Jets played the Atlanta Falcons in London.

Due to the fact I like to encourage constructive thoughts as I share just about every week, I won’t mention the final result of the recreation or the participate in of my team.

I would urge all of you, though, to find the opening ceremonies of the video game on the world-wide-web and check out.

The nationwide anthems prior to the match were completely sensational.

An opera star sang the countrywide anthem of England — that was remarkable.

The television digicam turned upward, bigger and bigger seeking the higher most place literally on the rooftop of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Standing at the peak of the roof was Marisha Wallace.

Her rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” at that distinct venue was breathtaking.

Choose a moment this week and locate this national anthem on the net and listen and enjoy — the natural beauty of the sky, fireworks and vocal functionality will go away you speechless.

The opening ceremony on Sunday was well really worth time put in listening and appreciating the expertise of a singer performing at the leading of the environment.

What an amazing general performance!

My Joy Journal this week began on Wednesday night when shots arrived on my iPad.

What pleasant photos of Dan Henry celebrating his birthday with his family — full with cake and candles.

What a joy it was to see his delightful smile.

My pleasure, also, is for the sharing of individuals shots.

Looking at them show up throughout the display screen produced my working day entire.

My Joy Journal this week also consists of the pleasure of getting an surprising greeting card on a weekday early morning.

When the mail was brought in from the mailbox among the schedule stack of catalogs, junk mail and costs there was a vivid orange envelope.

Inside was a Halloween greeting card from a pricey close friend.

Following I talked about final week that the New York Metropolis grocery store our son outlets in has an escalator, I was questioned why there would be the necessity for an escalator in a grocery retailer.

Last week, I had only viewed photos our son experienced despatched of him procuring — this 7 days, I questioned about the escalator.

The escalator is in the Entire Foodstuff Store exactly where he outlets for the reason that the retailer has multiple flooring and he says it is substantial!

How grateful I am that I reside in the north place and store at Walmart and Value Chopper.

How significantly a lot easier that is with significantly considerably less anxiousness for this shopper!
