Wescue: Meet Ricky

Ricky is a poor little Westie who was abused by his owners. The stress gave him a skin condition, which as you can see, led to loss of hair and sores. Fortunately, Ricky has been rescued by Westie Rescue and by Wescue, Kitchen Magic's animal rescue charity.  Wescue took him to a new home where he can get the care and love he deserves. He is a frendly little guy who has responded to kindness and will soon be happy.

You can't change the world, but you can change the world for one lucky dog or cat. Won't you support your local animal shelter today?

Where Were You in 1979?

Since 1979, Kitchen Magic has provided quality kitchen refacing and remodeling to our customers at an affordable price. You've helped us become the largest kitchen refacer in the U.S. We will celebrate its 30th anniversary in November of this year, and to celebrate, we'll look back at some of what made 1979 special.

Earlier we looked back and reminisced about the top music hits for 1979. We also had a look at the top movies of that year, and the top TV shows. We've also remembered the Saturday morning cartoons of that year.

Remember the game shows of 1979? Here are some of the ones that aired during 1979. How many Nipsey Russells can you find?

All Star Secrets

Beat the Clock

Card Sharks

Celebrity Charades

The Cheap Show

The Cross-Wits

The Dating Game (not a clip from 1979, but look who's contestant number two!)

Family Feud

 We'll look at more this time next week. Meanwhile, a bit of bonus Family Feud fun, as contestants struggle with the question, "Name an animal with three letters in its name."

Holiday Party Tips

'Tis the time of year to feel festive and see family and old friends. Here are some tips to make your holiday party a success.

Give invitees plenty of warning. Last minute invitations at a time when folks are busy are likely to be spurned.

Pick any day but Saturday and Sunday.  The weekends will be booked already. Friday or Thursday nights are perfect.

Be relaxed and casual, but have a theme. It can be as simple as gathering to watch favorite movies of the season, or gathering around a guita ror piano to sing carols and holiday songs.

Balance families and singles so you have a mixed guest list.

Enjoy yourself while you prepare. Listen to great music, abd get ready the day before so you'll be relaxed when the party actually comes.

Decorate with fresh flowers and candles in every room. Avoid scented candles as some guests may have allergies. Light up the fireplace, if you have one.

Tasty easy small food is best. Lots of cheese and crackers, chips and dips, and hors d'ouevres. Prosciutto, salmon and olives add sophisticated flair, and kids love cookies.

Have lots of beverages (both adult and soft drinks) and lots of ice. Some non-alcoholic choices might be juice mixed with seltzer, or ginger ale with a splash of grenadine syrup.  A lot of fizzy water on hand makes a wonderful choice. If you are offering a punch with alcohol, avoid any carbonated mixer; alcohol is abosrbed quicker when carbonated.

Mix and mingle. Don't get stuck in a corner. Keep an eye on your guests. Holidays often bring out overindulgence. If one of your quests seems indisposed, be sure he gets a ride home or a cab.


If your kitchen isn't up to a party, consider letting Kitchen Magic give you a fresh new one. Our dedicated kitchen professionals would be happy to give you a free in-home consultation and show you how affordable it is to have a great kitchen in which you'll be proud to entertain guests. Just click here, or give us a call at 1-800-237-0799. You'll be glad you did!
