This is Buzzy's Country Store blog designed to keep you apprised of what's going on at the Store. Buzzy's is a general store located in St. Mary's County, Southern Maryland near Pt. Lookout State Park. Buzzy and Jean Ridgell purchased the Store from Jean's father Harry Raley in 1953. Buzzy operated it until his passing in 2009. His son J. Scott Ridgell is the current owner.

January Birthdays

Let's start this new year off with an easy puzzle for you to solve.  It'll make you feel smart while doing so - I guarantee it!

"As soon as I am made,

I am sought with care

and for one whole year consulted.

That time elapsed,

I am thrown aside,

neglected and insulted.  What am I?"


I assume that you solved it, but if you could not do so, then ask your husband, wife, or your dog and they should be able to tell you the answer.  (One qualifier - the correct answer is "An almanac" but the Jeopardy judges say they will accept "calendar" too.)

A look at the Buzzy January calendar shows the following birthdays for the month:

Teresa Newbold, Carol Norris and Sue Norris on 6 January; LP Mercure the 13th; Barbara Flatley the 16th; Polock the 19th; Neal Siegel the 21st; Richard Lepper on the 27th and Paula Decker on the 29th.  My Mother-in-law Stella Aroesty celebrates her birthday on the 28th.  My Bonus Granddaughter Emma Peterson celebrates on 13 January.

First day of the year so let's take a look at all time best opening lines in rock music. 

 (Yesterday I gave you my nominee for this honor with "Get your motor runnin'.  There are numerous websites with lists of best opening lines so kill some time wandering thru them if you are up for it.  Here are some samples to check out (click here) (click here.)

As for one of my personal favorites, I'm sticking with the "Motors" genre as in "She was a fast machine, she kept her motor clean."
