2017 Valentine's Day gift and travel guide
Judith Leiber and Jill Haber make high-end over-the-shoulder handbags. Haber’s line can double as works of art.
For those on tighter budgets, Buxton (buxton.co) and Deux Lux make totes, billfolds and passport and credit card holders.
Cosmetics are tricky items for guys to purchase for women for a number of reasons. But if you know which shade the lady in your life loves then you can’t go wrong with lipsticks from Ulta Lip Gloss, Be Yu, Hard Candy, NVEY Eco, Essence, Shiseido, Mineral Fusion, Kiko Milano and especially Sephora.
These days skin care products have become almost as popular for men as they are for women. With good jobs tougher to find as we age, no one wants to look older than he or she has to, even those who aren’t the slightest bit vain. In addition, everyone is more aware of the dangers of the sun than we were even just a few years ago. Moisturizers, serums and sun-fighting products from CeraVe, Columbia Skin Cares and the humorously named Kiss My Face are all recommended.
June Jacobs produces specialty skin care items such as an anti-aging lip treatment and a detoxifying masque, while Kiehl’s, which has been around since 1851, makes a ton of skin products including its Ultra Facial Cream. For those who have the time to invest in looking as youthful as possible, Tammy Fender (tammyfender.com) has an entire at-home regimen kit for the truly dedicated.
Men also have been taking an increasing market share in the fragrance industry. Ralph Lauren’s Polo Red and Diesel’s Fuel for Men are popular fragrances. Former Jackson Heights resident and now LA transplant Tara Durkin has an excellent men’s fragrance called Dossage 8.
There are obviously thousands of perfumes for women. I am not sure how good it is but I have to chuckle at the name of House of Matriarch’s big seller, Sex Magic. That rivals the Sex on the Beach perfume from Long Island-based Demeter Fragrances, whose CEO is die-hard Mets fan Mark Crames. Safer name choices in the perfume world are Revlon’s Love Is On Eau de Toilette and Elizabeth Arden’s Always Red. Ralph Lauren makes a fragrance gift set that includes a box of Dylan’s Chocolates while Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb gift set includes parfum, shower gel and body cream. Lampe Berger Paris’ Cocoon Boxed Set contains has what it calls an Ocean Breeze Home Fragrance in a stylish satin glass case.
Valentine’s Day, like Halloween, is a day when, barring serious health issues, we can look the other way when it comes to sugar consumption. Godiva and See Candies make tasty chocolates, but I have to admit to a special fondness for Ghirardelli’s peppermint bark and caramel squares. Chocolate Covered Cherries and Vermont Nut-Free Chocolates (vermontnutfree.com) are perfect for anyone who might have allergies to nuts of any kind. Josh Aryeh, a Queens Hatzolah Ambulance volunteer driver, started Fruits in Chocolate (FruitsInChocolate.com) just across the Nassau County border in Inwood, LI, three years ago. As the company name indicates, Aryeh’s company places pieces of fresh fruit inside premium dark chocolate. They are kosher and are sold at a wide variety of retailers.
The southern part of the United States has always been known for great desserts. Brennan’s of Houston makes these soft praline pieces that remind you of the delicious fudge that you find in Atlantic City. Whoopie pies are a southern treat, but the sweetest that I have ever tasted are those from Wicked Whoopies (wickedwhoopies.com), surprisingly made in Freeport, Maine, a Portland suburb famous for its outlet shopping. Former investment banker Liz Fife recently started a New York-based company, Batter & Cream (batterandcream.com), that specializes in whoopie pies.
Cheryl’s (cheryls.com) has a Valentine’s Day gift box of its popular cookies while Harry & David’s has gift baskets of its popular Moose Munch popcorn as well as its many other confections.

Capitol Square to celebrate Day of the Dead
Mexican tradition.“As Day of the Dead becomes more and more popular, it’s important to differentiate it from Halloween,” said Diane Buxton, member of the Capitol Square Business Association and owner of Luv and Other Gifts. “And when folks paint their faces with the calavera, or colorful sugar skull design, it’s not meant to be a spooky Halloween mask, but rather a celebration of the eternal cycle of life.”To help guests get in the spirit, Artbeat will provide two self-serve face painting stations on both sides of Mass. Ave. where people can paint their own faces or help a friend. Mexican craft making will also be in full swing at Artbeat, 212A Mass. Ave., where all ages can make paper flowers and decorate paper sugar skull masks while enjoying cookies provided by Quebrada Baking Company.Guests are also encouraged to learn about the memory alter — or ofrenda — tradition, a special way to honor the dead, by leaving a heartfelt memory at an altar decorated with photos of the departed, saints, food and flowers. Visitors can pick up a special flower with memory tag at Derby Farm Flowers and Gardens, 218 Mass. Ave., and leave it on the community memory altar — decorated by Mexican-American artist D. Orxata — located at Luv and Other Gifts, 189 Mass. Ave.Tastes of Mexico will be provided by Arlington’s Acitron Cocina Mexicana and La Posada Restaurante. There will be Mexican folk music as Mariachi musicians rove throughout the square.At 13FOREST Gallery, 167A Mass. Ave., there will be a reception with a Dia de los Muertos installation by Boston artist Dimel Rivas. This installation will be on view alongside their current exhibition, “TENFOLD,” which celebrates their 10th annivers... (Wicked Local Arlington)Sep 21, 2016
Slideshow: Flowers Foods revives Wonder Bread plant
They put together a great plant,” he said, “but we made a lot of changes to make it ours.”
Ken Buxton, vice-president of project management for Flowers Foods, agreed.
“Every project involves some curve balls," he said. "We learned that from Henderson.”
“We got good value for what we spent on the bakery and the renovation," Mr. Frankum said.
Flowers renovated several systems to match technologies at the company’s other bakeries. The bread oven, for example, was fully refurbished, and packaging operations were increased. Further developments included the addition of an in-floor conveying system and the redesign of the existing tray stacking system to handle a common basket size. In other situations, such as the mixing and batching system, engineers completely replaced the existing setup and also redid the mixer room with a new foundation and mounting pads and mixers repurposed from the Biddeford, Maine, b...

Asheville flower bomb wrapped in mystery
Banks Ave. that destroyed the building. Three years ago, two homeless men were found dead behind the abandoned building.
Elliott Moss, Buxton Hall Barbecue chef and co-owner, still remembers those times even though his restaurant only recently opened.
“I’ve been on this street and eying this street for a long time,” Moss said. “I’m so used to seeing it as an empty shell with graffiti, but seeing this now is going to be a special memory for me. No matter what happens to that building, I’ll always remember it the way it is now: filled with flowers.”
The poem left behind
Seven nights before the last night of summer and the first morning of autumn, the bird of summer flowers, flying high overhead looked down and spotted this empty building, hidden like a fleeting hand-written poem of time lost in a city that was growing swiftly and sleekly around it. Certain that the curvy steel arches of its spine would be the perfect perch to stop and rest her wings for the night, down she flew. Soon after she was nested comfortably on her perch, she began to sing lullabies in an undecipherable yet sweetly scented language to all the summer flowers that filled her wings and would soon be fading — and soon after, she drifted off into a well-deserved sleep.
She awoke just before the light of day — so refreshed by her dreams of the night before, that she simply had to dance. It was a dance that comes rarely — a dizzying dance that buzzed like summer bees through every vein of her body — she surrendered to its trance — sipping in circles across the center of this cement floor as her petalled feathers drifted down in a swirl around her.
The moment the morning sunlight touched her wings, she disappeared just as quickly as she had arrived —flying up and away into the fiery golden days of autumn — leaving nothing but a spray of her petalled feathers and the intoxicating scent of her dance behind.
