    RezStream Report Help Please

    Hello old friends. This is a blast from the past from North, North Georgia USA. We sold our B&B about 5 years ago and I dropped off Innspiring, though I think about the friends I made here quite often. I've had an accounting and bookkeeping business since 2005, so I went back to serving my...

    Virus/Scam Alert

    Just got this email this morning and thought nothing of it. I tried to open the attachment and luckily it did not open. Really, that was my wake-up smack in the face that this maybe wasn't what it appeared to be. Maybe the attachment will affect someone else's computer even though it didn't...

    Personal Question - How does this thing work??

    I've asked this question on FB to a canning & homesteading site that always has all the answers about everything. They've been NO help lol I am moving in two weeks to a house that has the following contraption outside. I assume it's a smoker, though I've never seen one in person. I certainly...

    Cleaning Routine

    Have you developed a routine that maximizes your effectiveness and time? There are only two of us on the weekends, 8 rooms. It takes hours to get the kitchen and dining room back in order. Of course, if everyone leaves, it takes all day (and sometimes the next) to get the rooms and common...

    Sweet Biscuits & Gravy

    I was brainstorming today about a new recipe. Kinda a twist on strawberry shortcakes. I've been trying several different biscuit recipes trying to develop just the right one to be proud of and thought about putting fruit and sugar in it. Like folding frozen strawberry chunks in it. After...

    Really? 3 Stars?

    I know there's been alot of review venting lately, but we just got a doozie ourselves. I have to wait a few days before I respond. We've NEVER gotten a 3-star review. This girl was so blah, that we don't even remember them from a week ago. Preppy, yuppies from PA, just passing through...

    Angel Investors?

    My heart is heavy this morning. The owner told us yesterday that he is putting the Inn on the market in March. I've told no one, so I'm trusting you to keep it quiet. I have to say that for my peace of mind, no offense. We really, really want to stay here. We've worked so hard to build this...

    Hair Dye!!

    Called they guy and he verified that the spots must be from his hair. But, he colored it a week ago. He just can't believe it's still coming out. I did a search on here and didn't really find anything specific other than that a few people had to trash the stained item. Is that my only...

    Pancakes

    We've been getting repeated requests for pancakes. We've never done them for several reasons. I want to start experimenting with pancake recipes in hopes of hearing, "These are the best pancakes I've ever had!" I'm not looking for fancy (I've done the lemon ricotta pancakes), I'm looking for a...

    Slobs... disgusting slobs

    After this weekend, I have determined that there are 3 different types of slobs: The "I'm a slob all the time and my home is disgusting" slob The "I have a housekeeper, have completely forgotten how to pick up after myself and am teaching it to my kid" slob The "My house is immaculate and...

    Cookie Exchange Party

    I am considering hosting a cookie exchange party in the beginning of November. I love cookies and would enjoy trying new ones and getting new recipes for the Inn. I've always wanted to host an exchange party and I think the timing (before holidays and during a slow period) is ideal. Have you...

    Favorite Spices

    What is your favorite spice for savory dishes? Sometimes onion and garlic just aren't enough and you can't always rely on bacon or sausage grease. How do you up the flavor in your breakfast dishes?

    New Facebook Observation

    On my stats page, I can see that most of my posts are seen by less than 100 people. Sucks, but that's just the way it is. However, I posted a link last week that has been seen by 2,359 people!!! I think I know why... Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine is having a voting contest for the Best Of in...

    http://smallbizsurvival.com/2013/07/what-to-do-when-competition-opens-in-your-small-town.html#comment-18142 I needed to read this. We just had our surprise inspection and the inspector said that someone is trying to open another B&B downtown. Right now, we are the only one. I've been...

    Sweet Breakfast Ideas

    I need a few more sweet breakfast ideas. This past weekend I made my strawberry stuffed french toast & I'm burned out on it. Guests always say how "rich" it is & it's too large of a portion size. I make the bread myself (which takes 3 hours per loaf in my breadmaker) and make the strawberry...

    Heat resistant icing?

    Happy Saturday Frinnds I am making chocolate cupcakes for a dog event tomorrow. They will be outdoors during the event, though under shade. My usual vanilla icing is butter based and will not tolerate the heat we will have tomorrow. I really don't want to put store bought icing on my...

    Needing new website feedback

    Hello, Ladies & Gents! We are almost done with revisions on our new website. There are a number of things that I'm not thrilled about, but with 5 opinions going into it, I'm ok with letting some things slide. And if you compare to our old website, Holy Cow this is Beautiful! We're done with...

    Really Lady?

    What a doozie of a weekend! Started out bad and got worse. I guess I should be grateful that all the PITAs come on one weekend instead of spreading out to fill out my calendars... Guests are all checked in, happy. I've gone home. 12:30 AM the phone rings (we have Inn phone forwarded to an...
