Ya'll Stop By And Sit A Spell

Ya'll Stop By And Sit A Spell

This weekend I made a stop in Old Downtown Byron, Georgia. Who ever said Byron was a sleepy little town was wrong...Check out this very cool Deli..right in the heart of downtown. 

Sara Jo McLean, (Warner Robins, Georgia) owns this deli, they opened their doors in December 2010.  Speaking with Sara's daughter, I've come to find out that she was a former military wife like myself. It seems that giving half the chance we can take a little bit from everywhere we've been and then bring it back home to make something special like the "Drugstore Deli". 

Sara has stayed true to the name as well.  She tried out another name in the beginning but everyone kept calling it the drugstore deli. It's kinda hard to change anybody's mind here in the South. Especially when we associate it with directions and certain childhood memories. So the next time you're in middle Georgia or want a change of scenery, go have lunch in Byron at the Drugstore Deli.

Organic… What does it really mean?

Organic… What does it really mean?

The term “Organic” has been used loosely in recent years, so I thought I would discuss what it really means and who can use it in the cosmetics, body and bath products..  First, the term organic cannot be used the same way as “All Natural” or “Natural.”

Organic is a term which is certified by the USDA National Organic Program.

The USDA-accredited organic certifying agent must certify the company before they can use the term “organic” and use of their symbol.
