2017 Valentine's Day gift and travel guide
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.
Couples who are coffee drinkers and who don’t mind a touch of saccharine kitsch should purchase Care Bears his and hers mugs.
For the spirits industry, Valentine’s Day ranks just behind New Year’s Eve in terms of sales numbers. Liqueurs such as Godiva Dark Chocolate Liqueur, Baileys Old Irish Creme, Kahlua and Baileys Salted Caramel and Baileys recent creation, Espresso Café Creme, are safe bets. France is renowned for red wine but Calvados Boulard is a fine brandy from its Normandy region. Ireland now has competition in the cream liqueur industry as evidenced by South Africa’s Amarula Cream.
Sparkling wines such as France’s Lillet Rose and Italy’s Banfi Rosa Regale are also synonymous with romance. If you want a slight sweet touch to somewhat harder alcohol, try Smirnoff Wild Honey Vodka or Balvenie Caribbean Cork.
If you prefer smooth over sweet, Glenfiddich 12, Macallan, Usquaebach and Johnnie Walker Black Label (the Blue Label will cost you over $200) are great options in the scotch whisky market. (Queens Chronicle)Dec 2, 2016

Poppy Drive planned for Saturday: The story behind the poppy
The 1924 encampment of the VFW at Atlantic City granted this privilege, under the provision that all poppies would be produced according to specifications set forth by the National Buddy Poppy Committee, and that all poppies would be assembled by disabled veterans in government hospitals and by needy veterans in workshops supervised by the VFW.??Around the same year, the American Legion Auxiliary adopted the poppy as the organization's memorial flower and pledged its use to benefit our servicemen and their families. Today, the poppy continues to provide a financial and therapeutic benefit to those hospitalized and disabled veterans who construct them, as well as benefiting thousands of other veterans and their families.??Each nine-piece poppy is made by veterans for veterans in Auxiliary sponsored Poppy Shops that supplement physical and psychological therapy needed by hospitalized and disabled veterans. The Auxiliary provides the materials and the volunteers. The veteran makes the poppy and is paid a small amount for each painstakingly made flower. For some it is their only income.??No matter what the cost of maintaining and supplying the Poppy Shops, the memorial poppy is never sold, but given in exchange for a contribution.

Kelly: A storm brews and the real Christie emerges
Jersey Shore towns. Margate's streets were awash in waist-deep water. The same was true of Sea Isle City and North Wildwood and Atlantic City. The flooding in Cape May was almost an inch higher than similar flooding during Superstorm Sandy in 2012.
Thousands of New Jersey residents lost power. Even a day or two later, fire trucks and ambulances were unable to reach into neighborhoods in Newark because of the high snow drifts that had not been plowed.
And then there were the deaths. In Passaic, a 23-year-old mother and her 1-year-old son died Saturday night of carbon monoxide poisoning as they sat in a car with its engine running as her husband tried to shovel snow away from it. (Another daughter, 3, who was also in the car and initially survived, died four days later.) In Hackensack, a 78-year-old woman died in her car from a heart attack when she was afraid to drive and couldn't move her car from the deep snow in the parking lot of a Burger King restaurant.
And then there was Mary Wall of Mahwah. While Christie was enjoying himself at the football party on Sunday, Mary Wall's body lay frozen in the snow of her front yard — undiscovered by anyone.
Now let's be clear about something: Christie should not be blamed for Wall's death — or anyone else's. Nor should he be blamed for the flooding of Shore towns, for the power outages or even for the unplowed streets of struggling cities such as Newark.
But in times like these, you expect a governor — or any political leader, for that matter — to speak in a voice that offers a mix of sympathy, leadership and hope. You also expect him to be on the scene.
What we got from Christie was a temper tantrum and another campaign trip.
In the days after the storm and as more New Jersey residents realized how much damage and death this storm had caused, Christie was questioned about whether he may have left his state too early. It was a fair question. The governor is supposed to lead in a crisis. But Christie breezed into New Jersey for 24 hours. It was drive-by leadership — at best.
Back in New Hampshire
He spent all day Saturday dealing with the storm. By Sunday, he was back in New Hampshire. Many of Christie's constituents spent most of Sunday trying to dig out — or, in the case of the flooded towns along the Shore, trying to dry out.
The first questions about his quick-stop in New Jersey came from journalists. Christie brushed them off. But on Monday, during a campaign town-hall meeting in New Hampshire, Christie took a question from a young woman who said she had once attended school in New Jersey and still had relatives and friends in several Shore towns.
"Why are you here in New Hampshire campaigning," she asked, "instead of there, helping to survey the damages done by the coastal flooding from the storm?"
As I watched the video of this exchange — and I encourage readers to find it on the Internet and do the same — it was apparent how quickly Christie became defensive.

What it was like to fly the first commercial flight in 1914
Los Angeles was suddenly connected to Catalina Island by way of air travel. The same for New York and Atlantic City, and Florida with several Caribbean ports. The age of the airline was born.
One notable fact to file under “the more things change…”, the 1250 lb. Benoit XIV was originally built to accommodate just two people; the pilot and a single passenger. But two passengers were sometimes squeezed into that seat built for one. Eventually the route’s other precious cargo would come to include copies of The St. Petersburg Times for Tampa customers, and daily fresh flowers cut by a particularly enterprising florist.
World War 1 broke out shortly after The St. Pete’s Line (as it was called) ran the course of its original 3-month contract with the city of St. Petersburg. Though the airline operated for an additional five weeks until all of the region’s snowbird residents had departed for the cooler northern states for the season, The St. Petersburg–Tampa Airboat Line’s brief business came to a close in 1914. Tony Jannus, the original pilot for the airline, was killed two years later while training war pilots in Russia. While the airline may not have survived long enough to make it onto our list of major airline mergers of yesteryear, The St. Petersburg–Tampa Airboat Line’s legacy lives on.
