Vendor Pane Test

Here is a test of a simple implementation of the vendor pane view, based directly on the coop directory view

The Food We Eat

When I moved to the Bay Area in the 90s I came across a book called Flavors of India by Shanta Nimbark Sacharoff. I was intrigued by the recipes as they were Indian but they had a little twist. For example Shanta‘s  sambhar (a soup made with vegetables and legumes) recipe called for ginger and lime juice. Being from the South of India, I had never made sambhar without tamarind using ginger and lime juice. When I tried it, I was in for a pleasant surprise. It was delicious.

Winning By Cooperation

“Credit unions just may have a powerful weapon in their battle for market share – but a lot don’t fully appreciate it”, said Paul Stull, CEO of the Credit Union Association of New Mexico.

He elaborated – “Banks often have ready access to capital to fuel growth. Credit unions don’t.”  But, according to Stull, they have access to something just as good: “Credit unions have access to the power of the cooperative.  They can share ideas, technology, employees.  They can enjoy great value through cooperation.”

Tidal Creek Staying On Oleander Drive For Now

A food cooperative grocery store on Oleander Drive is staying put for now, shelving plans to move or open a second location close to downtown Wilmington. The store is also under new management.

Tidal Creek Food Co-op officials signed a new, multi-year lease for an undisclosed amount to stay at 5329 Oleander Drive, the store’s address for nearly 15 years, said Shaylah Paul, the co-op’s marketing coordinator, on Wednesday.

A Tribute to Berkshire Co-op

It all feels just a bit surreal. As you likely know by now, after 13+ years as the General Manager of the Berkshire Co-op Market, I’m moving on. May 31st will be my last day. I’m not sure how I feel, and right now, I’m numb, simply because the Co-op has been such an integral part of my life for those 13 years. Ask me later in June, when you see me shopping in the Co-op and Guido’s.
