The Birthstone For August Is Peridot

August Peridot

This months birthstone is Peridot. Peridot is a green magnesium-iron rich silicate mineral and is often mistaken for Emerald. Peridot is considered an olivine mineral. They are mined all over the world, and in the U.S.A. you can find them in Arizona, New Mexico, and Nevada.

An excerpt taken from the USGS on Peridot:

Peridot is the best known gem variety of olivine, a species name for a series of magnesium-iron rich silicate minerals. This bright yellow-green to green gemstone has caught the fancy of humans for thousands of years. Some historians even suspect that at least some of the "emeralds" worn by Cleopatra were actually peridot. Much of its recent popularity can be explained by its currently being recognized as the birthstone for the month of August, people wear the stone because it is supposed to bring the wearer success, peace, and good luck. 

Peridot makes a great gift idea for anyone born in August. Peridot looks great in earrings, is lovely set in rings, and they look very elegant when set in a solitaire pendant and hung on a thin chain. You can also find Peridot beads and they make very lovely necklaces.

Kenmore Concert on the Green KMA 2014

The Stranges - Concert On The Green - Kenmore N.Y.

As promised here are the pictures from the 2014 Kenmore Merchants Association "Concert On The Green".

 I heard the band start warming up and took a quick run up to the corner to snap a picture. As soon as I heard the band doing the sound check I could tell these guys were going to be good.

The concert was a lot of fun. There was a beer and wine tent, food served by Kenmore's favorite sub shop Mike's Subs, and The Strangers really rocked. As the crowd gathered on the green in front of the Kenmore Municipal Building the band rocked the crowd with hits from the 60's 70's and 80's. Fun was had by all, and the band was really tight and did great interpretations of the songs they played. I usually don't like cover bands but these guys were fantastic, and they really did justice to every song they played. Kudos to The Strangers !
The Strangers rock Kenmore N.Y. for the Concert on the Green !
The band drew a really nice crowd. It was so neat seeing family and friends enjoying live music on the steps of the village hall. Kenmore N.Y. rocks and they should do more events like this. Jazz on the steps would be a lot of fun. Hint, hint ...
As the sun set The Strangers kept the village rocking.

  The concert lasted from 7 to 10 in the evening. As the sun set The Strangers rocked the crowd at dusk. If you missed the event this year , you need to mark this on your calendar for next year ! Till then, rock on Kenmore!

What's Up Kenmore N.Y. ?

We really need to blog more. I think I'm going to start a "What's Up Kenmore N.Y." post each month. I'll just highlight all the fun stuff that's happening around town! July was pretty busy in Kenmore, we had Discover Delaware, and that was a lot of fun, and of course Kenmore Days, and then the Dog Days of Kenmore. I missed Kenmore Days, and Dog Days of Kenmore this year :(

What better way to end such a busy, fun month in July then with a concert, and a Giant Garage Sale. Tonight is the annual Kenmore Merchants Associations "Concert on the Green" featuring the music of "The Strangers". The concert is held in the Village Square at the Corner where Delaware Rd. Delaware Ave. and Lincoln Blvd. all meet. The concert starts at 7:00 this evening, it's a family event, but there will be a beer tent, and food served from Kenmore's favorite sub shop, Mike's Subs !

Then on Saturday, the Kenmore Village Improvement Society is holding the Giant Kenmore Garage Sale.  Maps will be available at the Village Square, and it runs from 9 to 3 in the afternoon. Let's hope for good weather ! If you love bargain hunting and searching for antiques and collectables, nothing beats a garage sale. Here's a copy of the first page of the map with everyone who is participating.

Now for a little shameless self promotion! We will be open tonight till 7:00 in honor of the concert on the green. I'll try and post some pix of the event next week. Tomorrow, Saturday July 26th we will be open from 9:00 till 3:00 and having a 25% to 50% off sale storewide.  Ladies here's a little hint, all purses and summer hats will be 50% off. So if you've had your eye on a purse, tomorrow is the day to score!

That's "What's Up In Kenmore N.Y." this week. Hope you have a wonderful weekend and if you're in the neighborhood, stop in for a cup of coffee and say hi !

Just thought I'd add a little color to the post.
