His job is to pen heartfelt, deeply personal letters to complete strangers based on details provided by the clients of the company he works for, and he has a knack for finding just the right words for every occasion. Meanwhile, reluctant to sign the papers that will finalize his divorce to his childhood sweetheart, depressed Theodore has slowly withdrawn from his supportive social circle, which includes his longtime friend Amy (Amy Adams), herself floundering in a failed marriage. When Theodore purchases a new state-of-the-art computer operating system with the ability to learn and grow with the user, he sits down at his desk and prepares to get his life in order. Adopting the name Samantha (Scarlett Johansson), the perceptive software slowly begins to bring Theodore out of his shell by encouraging him to start dating again, and joining him everywhere he goes. Very quickly, their relationship turns intimate, with Theodore teaching Samantha what it means to feel human and Samantha giving him the strength to walk away from his failed marriage.

3 Surprising Dark and Dirty Coffee Maker Secrets 2 Jun 2014, 10:35 am
Three Surprising Dark and Dirty Coffee Maker Secrets
What you Don't Know Could Hurt You!
Or at least keep you from enjoying a really great cup of coffee. Your coffee maker, it's been hiding some secrets from you and I'm here to blow the lid off that puppy and reveal to you the dark and dirty truth once and for all! Brace yourself because this is not gonna be pretty but it is necessary to face the truth so that you can do something about it! Don't worry, I'll help you with that too.
- Secret: If you have a drip coffee maker and have been regularly brewing coffee in it for a while I guarantee you that it's dirty even if it looks clean on the outside. Dirty equipment will definitely affect the taste of your Joe, but did you know that it can also impair your brewers operation and can even affect your health?!
- Secret: According to the Specialty Coffee Association of America and the National Coffee Association, the optimal temperature for brewing a great cup of coffee is 197.6 – 204.8F and most popular coffee makers brew within this range. Unfortunately, that may not be hot enough to kill any bacteria. Mold & bacteria love moist, warm environments to grow in which makes your coffee maker an ideal spot to set up shop.
- Secret: If you leave paper filters full of used, wet coffee grounds in the basket until making the next pot of coffee you are inviting bacteria to the party.
Clean The Crud!
- First of all we are going to stop leaving used filters and grounds in the basket until we brew another pot... right? As soon after brewing as possible we are going to remove the used filter and grounds and throw them in the trash. Then we are going to rinse the basket and sit out to thoroughly dry before putting back in the brewer. Once a week you should run the basket through your dishwasher or thoroughly clean it in hot soapy water and again, let dry thoroughly before putting back in the coffee maker.
- You should thoroughly clean your coffee maker a minimum of every 3 months to keep it running properly by removing mineral deposit build-up, and ensure fantastic tasting coffee and avoid illness by cleaning out coffee residue and killing any bacteria.
Here's How - Get Your Brewer In Tip-Top Shape!
- Remove any filter that is in your coffee makers basket.
- Fill the water resevior in your machine with equal parts regular white vinegar and water solution.
- Run a drip cycle and when the cycle is finished, turn off your coffeemaker but let the hot solution sit in the carafe for 15-30 minutes to remove and scale deposits from the carafe, then discard the solution.
- Finally, run at least three cycles of just clear water through your coffee maker to remove any lingering vinegar residue..
- Lastly, wipe down the exterior of your coffee maker and clean the removable filter basket, permanent filter if you have one and the carafe with hot soapy water and allow all parts to dry thoroughly before putting everything back together.
Now that your coffee maker is all spiffy, inside and out, you should be able to actually taste the difference so go ahead and enjoy some java!
And rest assured that if you come to enjoy a little romantic escape with us at our Finger Lakes Bed & Breakfast we follow this process on our well used and loved Bunn coffee maker so you are sure to enjoy delicious fresh brewed Colombian each morning at 10 Fitch Luxurious Romantic Inn.

David's Refuge at 10 Fitch - Caring For The Caregiver 5 May 2014, 9:57 am
David's Refuge at 10 Fitch
Caring For The Caregiver
Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. ~ Hebrews 13:2
|David Pfohl - Senior Portrait|
Warren shared how wonderful it was to come alongside these weary, dedicated couples, to hear their stories, and to offer them a place to relax and rejuvenate as they encouraged them and let them know that they are loved and are not alone. The problem was that demand was greater than their supply! There were so many couples that their bed and breakfast with one guest room just couldn't accommodate them all.
And that was why he was at Grace Chapel that morning telling us about David's Refuge. They were looking for others who might want to partner with them in various ways. As Warren talked I could feel myself getting more and more excited until it was nearly impossible for me to stay in my seat and not jump up and down, waving my hands in the air shouting, "We have a bed & breakfast! We could offer our rooms!"
|Brenda & Warren Pfohl|
As I left church that morning I was still having trouble keeping it together! I was excited and so moved by what the Pfohl's were doing and I believed God wanted us to be a part of it.
later that week I spoke with Warren on the phone and we set up a meeting. My husband Rodney and I invited the Pfohl's to come to 10 Fitch and spend the night in one of our suites. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner together at Oak & Vine restaurant and talked while we ate and then talked some more when we returned to the inn. It did take a few months to get everything in order but finally in November 2013 we hosted our first David's Refuge at 10 Fitch. We have hosted five more since and have two more on the books for later this year. All three of our suites are occupied by David's Refuge couples at one time making the atmosphere ideal for them to share their experiences, joys and the challenges of raising a special needs child because they have exclusive use of the inn and complete privacy while they are here.
|David's Refuge couples enjoying a 10 Fitch breakfast together|
4.27.14 "This has been the best weekend ever for us - better than our honeymoon! Thank you so much for your hospitality, delicious food, exquisite room, and impeccable home. Thank you 10 Fitch & David's Refuge!" Rob & Dana Bisnett
We have been incredibly blessed to be a part of what David's Refuge is doing. The couples who have shared their stories and pictures of their children with us have touched our hearts forever. These are amazing parents and caregivers! We have been so happy to serve them and love on them during their brief stays.
Do you know a couple with a special needs child who could be blessed by David's Refuge? Would you like to find out more information about how you might become involved and be a blessing to these worthy couples? Please visit the David's Refuge website.

May 9th & 10th – “Gloria” - Auburn Public Theater, 108 Genesee St., Auburn. A vibrant Chilean divorcée falls for a handsome ex-naval officer, but finds any chance for lasting happiness hinging on her willingness to confront a painful chapter from her past. In the wake of her divorce, 58-year-old Gloria (Paulina García) is determined to live her life to the fullest. Her children have all grown up and moved out, so rather than sit home alone, Gloria spends much of her time at local nightclubs and singles parties. Later, just when Gloria has started to realize that her active new lifestyle offers precious little emotional sustenance, she's swept off her feet by a dashing former naval officer in his sixties. Before long she's dreaming of a bright future with him. But true love never comes easy, and before Gloria can enjoy her twilight years with the man who makes her feel truly fulfilled, she must make peace with a harsh truth that could drive him away forever. Tickets $5/online, $6/at the door, 5/9, 1:00 & 8:00 pm, 5/10, 8:00 pm. www.auburnpublictheater.org 315-253-6669
