As someone who enjoys automobiles, you have to appreciate a company that makes its living keeping your ride from burning to the ground. What's more is that HalGuard's fire extinguishers are filled with a "clean agent" that keeps vehicle damage to a bare minimum. That's all well and good when you're driving the vehicle, but what about when it's parked in the garage or riding in the back of an enclosed trailer? HalGuard has you covered with automatic fire-supression systems that are heat activated (155,175, 200 and 286 F)

Valley Pride LLC, a group of 21 family farms based in the Harrisonburg, Va., area, has purchased the former Good Humor-Breyers ice-cream plant in Hagerstown and plans to begin milk and ice-cream production this fall, according to a company official.

During a ceremony Tuesday, at which Hagerstown and Washington County officials joined company officials in making the announcement about the purchase of the plant, Inman said it's been “a long, hard road.” The farmers have worked diligently to try to “fulfill this lifelong dream of ours to own our own processing facilities,” he said.

Linda Losey is in love. With limoncello. And as with many passionate love affairs, it all started in Italy. Losey lives in Baltimore but co-owns Bloomery Plantation Distillery, a year-old distillery on 12 woodsy acres near Charles Town, W.Va. The modest, two-story distillery has a long history. The center portion was a slave quarters, built circa 1840. The additions on both ends date to the late 1800s, Losey said, and are built of boards recycled either from C&O Canal boats or from flatboats called gundulos, which carried people and freight across the Shenandoah River.

A production line at the Good Humor-Breyers Ice Cream plant on Frederick Street was shut down Monday following a fire in a compressor at the plant, a Hagerstown Fire Department spokesman said. The fire was discovered at 9:43 a.m. and had been extinguished by a maintenance worker by the time firefighters arrived, Capt. Russell Grim said. The fire caused smoke to spread through the plant and it took some time to get the smoke out of the building, Grim said. A production line was shut down as a result of the incident and Grim said he believed the line was going to be closed for the rest of the day Monday.

To get right to the point, I asked my wife to pick up some shaving cream at the store, and she came home with Barbasol. I have nothing against Barbasol. Didn't know they still made it, but I have nothing against it. I used it. It's fine. Pretty much like any other shaving cream, I suppose. But there is a larger issue at work here, which I'll get to directly. You have seen Barbasol, no doubt. It comes in a striped, circa 1918 can that is supposed to resemble a barber pole - which is part of the problem.

There's an oft-told adage: if you haven't failed at something, you haven't tried hard enough to succeed at anything. A perfect case in point is the Edsel, a car - a whole line of cars, actually - that epitomizes failure on a particularly grand scale. After two brief years in production and untold millions of dollars spent on engineering, tooling and marketing, the misunderstood Edsel flamed out in spectacular fashion. The public actually seemed to enjoy the spectacle of watching Ford tripping over its corporate shoelaces.
