Are My Sponsors Real?

A while back my friend Pat asked me if I was getting my blog sponsored. This made me smile because someone had actually noticed the ads that I had created and posted on the right side of the site. I explained to him that, while these are not technically sponsors, the ads are very real. The reason I have placed them on my blog is because these businesses belong to good people and deserve to be recognized.

I asked each of them to send me a paragraph or two to promote their business. Check them out and please patronize them whenever possible.

Paul De Luisa sent me the following about Luisa’s Pizza:

July 1st marks 16 years in Wheatland for me. I started making pies when I was 12 years old at Valeo’s in Kenosha. At 25, I was working in a factory and wanted out. So I saved my money, sold my house and set out on this adventure. When I first moved out to the “sticks” in 1996, I wasn’t sure what I was in for. After discovering that there was running water, flush toilets, cable and decent people, I didn’t regret the move west. My only regret is the time when the business keeps me away from my family.

The restaurant has specials throughout the week. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, Luisa’s delicious pizzas are half price if you pay with cash. When you pay with cash on Thursdays, you receive 30 percent off. Luisa’s
popular fish fry is featured on Friday nights. The chicken on Saturday is a tradition, made with the same recipe that has been used in the building for the last 30 years.

Office Manager Tracy Finch provided me with the following information about Absolute Computer Systems:

Sharon Buege had this to say about Sister Act Painting and Creative Treasures:

We have an array of merchandise, something for everyone. We have things old, things new and many things repurposed. Right now we are focused on the yard and garden season and have many fun things for your yard. Custom orders are always being taken for those who may have seen it on Pinterest but do not have the means to create it. Let us do it for you! Have an old ugly furniture piece you don't know what to do with? Give it a face lift with a paint job. Please come check us out, we have everything from books to home decor, furniture, jewelry and many crafted items.

This weekend we are having our 1st ever OVERSTOCK sale. We say, out with the old and in with the new. We have tons of merchandise on sale at 25% off. For an even better deal, buy 3 or more items for our BUNDLE OF JOY. This is for the real bargain shopper. This week’s sale will be Friday and Saturday only. Store hours are Friday 11-5 and Saturday 10-4. Feel free to call me with any questions regarding this event at 262-308-4395. Remember, Sister Act puts the funk back in your junk!

I would like to add one last thing about Sister Act. While you are there, pick up a copy of my book, “Some Kenosha Softball” for only $10!

Once again, I am taking the time to do this because Paul De Luisa of Luisa’s Pizza, Thomas Tassi of Absolute Computer Systems and Sharon Buege from Sister Act Painting and Creative Treasures are all good people who provide a fine product. Please patronize my "sponsors" and when you do, let them know you heard about them on my blog.

Until next time…from the booth.
