“Today stinks”   Local pickle maker closes? Miss Jenny’s Pickles, based in Kernersville, is shutting down today. Jenny Fulton, the company’s owner, stated that one of the reasons for the shut-down is ‘increasing competition from large pickle-makers’. Fulton started Miss Jenny’s Pickles some eight years ago at Fountain of Life church in Kernersville. When the business outgrew the space, it moved to the Winston Lake YMCA, then to its current headquarters in Kernersville.

What’s next for owner Jenny Fulton? She’s going on a long-planned trip to France. “It’s been planned for over a year, so I’m going.  Winston-Salem Journal  https://goo.gl/Wpgwc5

Topic this morning: Summer fashion and modesty, specific – parents and teens – battle of the shorts! How do you balance modesty and fashion?  One mom got fed up with short shorts for girls. So she started her own brand. When (mom) Sharon Choksi went clothes shopping with her daughter it was a nightmare. Finding clothes that ‘fit’ was exhausting (and frustrating).

Why did girls’ clothes have to be so small and tight?

Sharon got the idea that maybe better choices were missing from the marketplace. But first she needed some data, and what she found shocked her.

Sharon collected boys and girls clothes from 10 of the biggest retailers that were all meant for kids of around the same size and age and took some simple measurements. Findings: The girls’ shirts were one to three inches thinner. The sleeves were shorter. And the girl’s shorts were barely a third of the length.
