and that is to add a few quick dashes of hot sauce the milk-and-egg
mix that the fish fillets are dipped in before they go into the
cornmeal-and-flour breading. Don't worry: it doesn't make the fish
hot. Rather, it just contributes an extra zest and tang that enlivens
the taste. It's a small added ingredient that makes all the
difference between ho-hum, run-of-the-mill fried fish and superb,

they offer is far more important than all that.
one occasion, for example, my oven wouldn't light. So I went to this
store and talked to the owner. He patiently listened to my oven's
symptoms, discussed my options, and then prescribed a cure – a new
igniter. He then sold me the igniter – at cost – and explained
how to install it. Soon I was back in business and baking away.
that's customer service – and the reason I use only that store for
my appliance needs now. And that is also the kind of thing we strive

Queen's Cups – Pupcakes and Bandanas
Renee Diaz founded The Queen's Cups seven years ago when she was only 23 years old. It is a Worcester, MA, bakery specializing in cupcakes. And Renee has been selling Pupcakes for the past five years.
just what is
a Pupcake," you ask. Well, it's a cupcake for dogs, as the name
suggests. But, really, it's more than that.
Basically, a pupcake is a
human-edible cupcake with a Milk Bone-like dog treat placed on top.
It is made with healthy ingredients like peanut butter, honey, oats,
and carrots and made to look appealing to pets and their owners. You
can eat them if you want, but then your pups won't get theirs.
dog owners buy their pets Pupcakes to celebrate their birthdays and
other special occasions. And many people come in daily to get their
dog a Pupcake because . . . well, just because. In addition, the
popularity of Pupcakes has resulted in some well received spin-off
dog treats such as big sellers like the Nutella cookies and chocolate
The Queen's Cups isn't your typical cupcake-producing bakery. Nope,
not in the least. Because the Queen's Cups is a dog-friendly bakery,
it has that special, added dimension that is so rare.
was only natural, then, that they would get involved in the hottest
trend in pet accessories – dog
They thought it would be a nifty marketing idea, but on mentioning it
to customers, they were surprised at the response. Customers
said they wanted the dog bandanas and would buy them. Now,
you can go to The Queen's Cups, get yourself a sweet treat, get your
dog a Pupcake, and set your pet up with some cool new pet attire.

Queen's Cup had to get their bandanas somewhere. So as the idea for
dog bandanas took shape, they (naturally) Googled "dog
bandanas." And one of the top results they got was for Wholesale
They ordered some, and that clinched the deal.
asked why Queen's Cups now gets all their dog
from Wholesale For Everyone, Barbara King (Renee's Mother and second
in command) had a ready answer: "Price and awesome customer
service. They are," she said, "very easy to work with."
an example . . .
first ordered 60 bandanas from Wholesale For Everyone – without
knowing that an order of 72 would get her significant savings. So Dan
Weaver at Wholesale For Everyone called her up and advised her to
wait a bit on the order. He added another 12 bandanas to the first
order so that Renee could get them at a much cheaper price. And
another time, Renee placed an order for larger bandanas. So, again,
Dan called and advised ordering a variety of sizes so that they could
try them out and see what worked best – instead of ordering a large
quantity of a single size that might not work.
summed it up like this: "Dan at Wholesale
was looking out for our best interests."
Mardi Gras Yellow Penalty Flag Throw
also Sean Gautreaux and the
latest trend in Mardi Gras throws (you know, the beads,
medallions, and so on thrown out to the crowds from the floats) . . .
a few days after that January 20 NFC Championship Game, when the
yellow flag did not fly, Sean was talking to Mardi Gras float painter
Danny Corio. They were discussing the final touches for a parade they
were working on. Danny had been listening to discussions of the game
on sports talk radio while painting. It sparked an idea that he
mentioned to Sean, but didn't have time to follow up on right then.
after that, though, the Captain of the parade (the head or person in
charge) was in the warehouse where the Mardi Gras floats are stored
(called the "den"). He was talking and complaining about
the rising cost of Mardi Gras throws – that is, the items tossed
out from floats to the eager hands of spectators, usually things like
plastic beads, cups, doubloons, and stuffed animals. Then the idea
would be the perfect way to laugh in the face of that football
tragedy, to give it an ironic twist and wring out a little humor. And
that would be a Mardi Gras throw that was the penalty flag never
thrown in the game. So Sean went to work.
finding local fabric stores an unreliable source for the needed
materials, Sean did like all of us and went online. He conducted a
Google search for "yellow
the top of the search results was Wholesale For Everyone, as well a
likely looking competitor on the first page. After doing a quick
comparison, Sean found that Wholesale For Everyone (WFE) was more
professional and had the competitive prices he needed and so the
competitor was ruled out.

WFE had at the top of their page the 1-800 number and seemed welcome
to phone calls. The competitor's site mentioned that ordering calls
were not welcome and the number was only for customer service after
the order was placed. So, if I ordered from the competitor, would the
shipment get lost in the mail or be late? I needed these flags made
there's more: "I called up WFE and spoke to Jeff. Boom, order
placed, and I had the flag material in days. They even waved the
shipping cost. I placed another order. Boom, I had that order in a
few days as well. Yesterday morning, I placed an order for 640
pieces. An hour later, I called back to revise the order and add 60
pieces to it. No problem. The pieces were out the door yesterday, in
the mail at a very reasonable standard shipping cost, and will be at
my door tomorrow, 2 days later."
and accuracy were paramount. "Mardi Gras is March 5th,
and the riders need to get their flags in time to decorate them with
time to spare. WFE
Why would I order from anyone else?"
Inn and Chisholm Trail
her husband, Tim, opened the doors of the Windmill
bed and breakfast, in 1991.
they spent two years remodeling her grandfather's house for this purpose – a "1917 Prairie Style four-square home . . . surrounded by acres of rich, fertile farmland and nestled in the grassland region of the Flint Hills, just moments from historic Abilene, Kansas. The home was built by Deb's grandfather Henry Delker as a wedding gift to his bride Emma. They raised their family here and occupied the home until 1989."
her involvement with Abilene's Convention & Visitors Bureau, Deb
realized that the Chisholm Trail, with all its fascinating local
history, could be and should be another big tourist draw. So she
discussed it with her husband. Then they hopped into their car and
headed down the trail to check it out – to Wichita at the
confluence of the rivers, across Oklahoma, and down through Texas.
next step was to start the CT 150 Group, so named because 2017 marked
anniversary of the first Chisholm Trail drive to Abilene. The group
promotes the Chisholm Trail and Abilene's historic place in it as the
terminus. This group is also working to get a National Parks bill
passed (which has been in the works since 2007) to have the Chisholm
Trail, along with the Western Trail, designated as National Trails.
CT 150 Group's success can also be seen in the return of the Chisholm
Trail Days to Old Abilene Town. This celebration features longhorns
paraded through Old Abilene Town and then loaded onto rail cars just
like they used to be, along with many other events and activities.
Period costumes and accoutrements make the celebration complete and
would a remembrance
of the Chisholm Trail and a revival of Abilene's part in it be
without a trail ride? This year marks the first for a commemorative
trail ride following a portion of the Chisholm Trail in Kansas. The
riders, 125 of them so far, will start off at Caldwell, Kansas.
They'll ride for four days and finish up their ride south of Wichita
following the same path as the Chisholm Trail. This event will even
be covered by RFD-TV.
got about and enthusiasm grew for this trail ride without any
marketing at all. That's what sparked Deb's interest. As a result,
she has been negotiating for Abilene segments on the planned RFD_TV
program. It also caused her to conceive her bandana-distribution idea
as a way to get the riders to see and possibly ride more of the
Chisholm trail. She would like them to see, for example, the natural
waterfall at Elm Springs, fifteen miles south of Abilene, where the
cowboys took their "showers" after the long, dusty drive
before heading into town for a little well deserved fun.
Deb and the other members of the 150 Group began discussing what they
could get for the riders as a souvenir and an enticement to come to
Abilene. Deb wanted to get specially designed bandanas (that
essential piece of cowboy apparel) to distribute to the riders at
Caldwell. So she got a budget from the group's director, and the
thing was set in motion.
she still needed to find a supplier
and printer for the bandanas
. . .
Deb contacted Dan Weaver at Wholesale
(She did contact other suppliers, but they didn't respond.) Dan, she
said, willingly worked with her on colors and size and helped her
hammer out delivery logistics. Here's what she had to say about Dan
Weaver and Wholesale For Everyone: "Dan was really helpful. He
worked hard with me to get the artwork where it needed to be. And he
promised on-time delivery."
Quality Michigan and Keepsake Bandanas
For the kids who attend Camp Quality Michigan, the camp experience is a whole lot more than just some outdoor activities for a
week – providing help in dealing the physical and emotional challenges they face when battling cancer. This camp is designed to ensure that "every child who has been diagnosed with cancer can not only have a summer camp experience, but year-round programs to enhance their quality of life and encourage family time." Camp Quality Michigan has only one overarching goal: "Letting kids with cancer be kids again."

who give their time to these special kids.
is no stranger to cancer herself. In 2009, she was diagnosed with the
disease – but she beat it. As a cancer survivor, Debra knew she
wanted to get involved in the cancer cause in some way. She worked at
a middle school, had always loved children, and her sons had been
involved in the Boy Scouts. So after much prayer and looking around,
it was only natural – perhaps Providential – that she would find
and get involved with Camp Quality Michigan.
finding Camp Quality Michigan, Debra started off as golf-cart driver,
helping kids get around and enjoy the camp experience. It wasn't long
though, as her involvement and commitment deepened, till she move up
to Program Coordinator.
is also a driving force behind a new activity. This year the kids
will have the chance to custom tie die their own keepsake bandanas
donated by Dan
Weaver and Wholesale for Everyone. The 150
donated white bandanas will be used for one of the arts and crafts
activities. The kids will get to tie die their white bandana in
whatever way suits them. So they get to create their own memento of
their experience at Camp Quality Michigan – to be kept as a
souvenir, worn as a head covering, or both.

They do that by offering a constellation of valuable programs and by having a small army of passionate, dedicated volunteers – like Ashley Gibson.

bandanas that help make the dogs more

some of their long-term residents. Two of these are Spunky, who had

Ashley makes special bandanas for the dogs to help them get noticed
and get adopted. In fact, she made a batch of over 30 the last time.
The dogs wear the bandanas so that they can be all dressed up when
people come to McKamey to see them. Now, though, to keep the bandanas
clean, Ashley says they are going to tie them to the kennels to
identify the dogs. They will, however, still wear them for special
