Some time ago, I made a Web page for Women's History Month called What's Cookin' honoring women who cook. My grandmother and mother used to take me to lunch to what was called a "tea room" in downtown Providence (RI). The woman who owned and ran the business was a friend to my grandmother. She was very personable, a great cook and literally had the businessmen of Providence eating out of her hand. I was impressed with the way she "worked the room" chatting with the men and making suggestions of what was good for lunch. It was the first time I'd seen a woman in business for herself.
Naomi Armstrong visited my Web page and sent me an email telling me her grandmother also was a friend of Miss Dutton. She has more recipes and is going to gather them up.
This reminds us all how much the Web brings up together in ways not possible before. By the way, Naomi's is not the first email I have had about this page as a man who worked for Flora Dutton also emailed me.
This inspires me to make a Web page about the business my family owned and operated for three generations.
So many ideas...so little time!
