Hummm....who would not get along with someone who makes caramel corn?

The fish letter is neat. How many places would take the time to write customers personal letters today?

For a while Mick, Helen's husband, owned a carmel corn store in Iowa City. While he didn't have the place all that long, the great irony is that now there is a very popular bar at the same location named "Mickey's"

THanks for the link Mike! My thoughts were to invite a couple of contractors we had issues with over and ask them to fix something in the basement for us. Now it wouldn't solve the problem, but it would make me feel a little better.
