In here you can find information and links to other small businesses that I have personally done business with and encourage you to check out for yourself.


One of my first customers and the place where I get lunch as often as I eat at home, is Newman's Pour and Pies. This local family-owned business has sandwiches that are stacked and loaded with all kinds of goodness. Just west of Starr Rd, on Trent Ave. in Newman Lake, WA, you can have a cold brew, a glass of wine, a fantastic cup of coffee, or a choice of cold drinks with a choice of sandwiches that will make you want to come back as often as possible.

Another small business that understands the importance of quality products, treating customers right, and keeping things local is Kaniksu Brewing, formerly HopStop Home Brew. Located in Post Falls, ID Kris and his team not only carry supplies for home brewers, but they also brew and serve some fantastic brews of their own.

My wife and I love finding places to escape for some quiet time. This beautiful VRBO in Sooke, BC Canada was amazing. The views over the water, the ability to make the short trip to Victoria for Dim Sum or stay in Sooke for a great meal make this well worth the trip.
