Looking for an alternative to plastic Easter basket grass?

 

Sylvacurl vs plastic grass

Easter is on its way, Sylvacurl is an eco-friendly alternative to the usual plastic grass.

We are being buried in plastic waste – estimates indicate that over 300 million tons of plastic a year is produced globally. Most plastic is made from virgin material and recycling still only removes a fraction from the waste stream. Plastic creates toxic pollution at every stage of its existence, including manufacture, use, and disposal.

Consider Sylvacurl to cushion your Easter goodies this year!

Where does the term “the luck of the Irish” come from?

Via MentalFloss

The phrase luck of the Irish is commonly thought to mean “extreme good fortune.” However, according to Edward T. O’Donnell, an Associate Professor of History at Holy Cross College and author of 1001 Things Everyone Should Know About Irish American History, the term has not an Irish origin but “a happier, if not altogether positive,” American one.

“During the gold and silver rush years in the second half of the 19th century, a number of the most famous and successful miners were of Irish and Irish American birth. . . .Over time this association of the Irish with mining fortunes led to the expression ‘luck of the Irish.’ Of course, it carried with it a certain tone of derision, as if to say, only by sheer luck, as opposed to brains, could these fools succeed.”

The word luck is Middle Dutch in origin, coming from luc, a shortening of gheluc, “happiness, good fortune.”

Luck may have been borrowed into English in the 15th century as a gambling term. (Draw an ambsace, or double aces? Then you’re S.O.L.—a phrase which originated as World War I military slang.)

Dinner with 2 of our favorite customers!

We had dinner last night at Claire’s in Hardwick. They had a special “pairing” dinner featuring Eden Ice Cider, hosted by Linda Ramsdell. The event began with special cocktails and then a four course dinner featuring amazing food with local ingredients cooked up by master chef Harrison Littell with a special iced cider for each course. Almost every course featured Jasper Hill cheeses and the main course was prepared around goat from Vermont Chevre. Great food and drink and wonderful company on a February night in Hardwick. Thank you all.

Eden Ice Cider uses sylvacurl for special seasonal baskets and Jasper Hill for special Cheese Council mailings around the Holidays.
