"Talk of the Town"
By Bonni Brodnick

When we asked a few readers how much they doth loveth Pound Ridge, they responded,
“I love the idea that there is not a train nor a bus and that we still have so many pristine nooks, not ruined by us, the so called ‘civilized ones.’” ~ LSM. “I love going for a hike at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation any time of year with my kids.” ~AB

With Valentine’s Day in the air, heartfelt sentiments and L-O-V-E love are flying. Get ready to express your affection with kind and admiring words and gestures. Things like thoughtful Valentine’s cards, romantic interludes, and/or big boxes of satin-covered heart-shaped boxes of chocolates. What about some jewelry? Do you like flowers? How about some 02? The 02 Living Health Spa, Yoga and Live Food Café at Yellow Monkey Village in Cross River has put together a couples Valentine’s Day special that includes a unisex one-hour yoga practice for beginners and all-levels, a couples 60-minute Swedish massage, followed by assorted handmade truffles served with Goji Berry Tonic (a non-alcoholic juice). Cherish the moment with your favorite guy or gal. For more information on 02 Living, call 763-6320 or check out their website at www.02living.me, which has a bountiful offering of information on wellness and maintaining healthy lifestyles.

Let’s say you’re in business and you’re looking for new executive office space, but you don’t want an expensive lease or the drudgery of a commute to NYC, Greenwich, Stamford or White Plains. Let’s say you’re looking to open a branch office of a major corporation and want to present a polished/professional image, or let’s just say you have a home office and would love to work with other professionals, but it has to be close-by so you’re on-hand for family responsibilities. Office Suites of Pound Ridge at the Business Center is the new venture by the dynamic duo, Elaine and Nick Vazzana. This “ready-to-go” office solution is a new way of looking at workspace in a market traditionally dominated by expensive leases, utilities and services. “We handle all of the time-consuming details of daily operation so that people are free to focus on their core business,” said Nick. Located on Westchester Avenue, Office Suites of Pound Ridge has private offices, a fully-equipped conference room with a large-screen HDTV; executive office furniture and décor; high-speed fiber-optic Internet and telephone service; secure mailbox and shipping; copying, printing and faxing services; a refreshment lounge/kitchenette, and something as simple as natural light. Each office has either a window or a skylight and environmental concerns have been taken into account with heating/AC. You’ll be able to manage your cash flow easily because the all-inclusive monthly bills even cover electrical and cleaning. By 2012 at least 40 percent of the American workforce will be distributed away from a large central office. So whether you’re a professional who needs a second office, an entrepreneur who is moving your office from home, a financial broker who needs a private office, or a corporate employee who needs a satellite office, this could be your solution. Contact Nick Vazzana at 764-3401 or elvaz@aol.com.

It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.” ~Walt Disney. “What would you do if you knew you could not fail?” ~Eleanor Roosevelt. On a blustery February evening, this was just the kind of inspiration we were looking for when we gazed up to read these timeless homilies inscribed in the molding at North Star Restaurant in Scotts Corners. If you’re looking for a delicious meal, attentive service and warm ambiance, check out the restaurant that is becoming another Pound Ridge staple. Many evenings include live music. Go to www.northstar.com or call 764-0200. Go ahead. “Live with passion.” ~Tony Robbins. “Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.” ~Jimi Hendrix.
