Lin Honeycutt on a Hobby Gone Wild: The Origins of a Family Business

Lin Honeycutt Talks About How the Holiday Light Store Got Its Start

RALEIGH , NORTH CAROLINA , UNITED STATES , October 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — When the days get darker, Lin Honeycutt and Cindy Honeycutt have long lit up the night with their colorful holiday light displays in Raleigh, NC. It wasn’t until Lin was ready to retire though that it became more than just a hobby.

The origin story of the Holiday Light Store in Raleigh begins with a husband and wife who loved to decorate their yard. Cindy and Lin Honeycutt didn’t rig up an ordinary display though, opting instead for more than 800,000 lights to create a true masterpiece. See how their quest to share the spirit of the holidays with their neighbors turned into a much bigger operation.

A Passion in the Making

From the very first year, the Honeycutts were delighted by the reactions to their efforts. Children and adults alike wouldn’t just pass by and smile, they would stop to better appreciate the ornate details and vivid colors. Peaceful and bright, these electric miracles had a way of helping people slow down and savor a season that has a tendency to fly by in a haze of credit cards and shopping bags.

Of course, with that many lights over the course of three decades, it was inevitable that some would need to be repaired. When Lin Honeycutt couldn’t find endless technicians ready to help, he learned to take on the tasks himself. All that specialty knowledge he picked up overtime proved to be helpful to more than just his family though. He’s not the only one that wants to make the holiday special.

Lin Honeycutt: A Place for Hobbyists

It’s not always easy to start new, but these two entrepreneurs knew that there was a market for what they did — one with very little competition to be found (both in Raleigh and beyond).

After 30 years in the auto industry, Cindy and Lin decided to parlay their hobby into a new business, eventually opening their own storefront and specializing in everything from basic rewiring to custom light displays. After more than 15 years, they’ve earned business from as far as Hawaii, Canada, and Alaska, appealing to dedicated decorators who will settle for nothing but the best in show.

Lin Honeycutt might sell an animated Santa one day and fix lights on a run-of-the-mill ornament the next. The staff fulfills orders for large-scale displays at golf courses and helps party throwers get their home ready for their big gathering.

His and his wife’s journey might have taken some time, but it was a natural progression that stemmed from an innate love of Christmas. With deep respect for their beliefs and genuine goodwill to all, this store represents far more than a source of income.

LAZARUS NATURALS UNVEILS NEW CBD DARK CHOCOLATE IN COLLABORATION WITH RANGER CHOCOLATE CO.

New CBD Chocolate features full-spectrum CBD

New CBD Chocolate joins growing line of CBD edibles; features full spectrum CBD

We’re excited to combine the highest quality artisan chocolate with our full spectrum CBD.”

— Sequoia Price-Lazarus, CEO and founder of Lazarus Naturals

PORTLAND, OR, UNITED STATES, October 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Lazarus Naturals, a Pacific Northwest-based CBD company with a mission of effective and accessible CBD for all, today announced the addition of CBD Dark Chocolate to its product line. Each artisan chocolate bar features 70% dark chocolate infused with sea salt and vanilla from Ranger Chocolate Co. — and 240mg high potency CBD (12 servings with 20 mg per square). Like all Lazarus Naturals products, they are third-party tested from an accredited lab.

“We created the new CBD Dark Chocolate in partnership with Ranger Chocolate, another local business committed to ethical sourcing. We’re excited to combine the highest quality artisan chocolate with our full spectrum CBD,” said Sequoia Price-Lazarus, CEO and founder of Lazarus Naturals. “As the edibles category continues to grow across the industry, our customers continually ask us to expand our existing edibles product line — which currently includes CBD Fruit Tarts.”

Lazarus Naturals CBD Dark Chocolate is available in a 58-gram bar (MSRP $15) made from organic, vegan, and non-GMO ingredients — including organic cacao, organic sugar, cacao butter, sea salt, vanilla and full spectrum hemp extract. “We want to make products we’re proud of. All our products are made to work first and foremost, and always priced for all of us. Our new chocolate is no different. It is a delicious and familiar way for new customers to engage with our brand and get the high potency CBD they want,” said Price-Lazarus. “

“The new CBD Chocolate Bar is crafted from our premium ‘Makers Blend’ chocolate — a combination of cocoa beans ethically sourced from multiple regions — to achieve a balanced flavor and complement the earthiness of the hemp,” said George Domurot, founder and CEO of Ranger Chocolate Co. Cocoa beans offer essential vitamins and minerals to help promote a healthy lifestyle, making it a perfect addition to CBD. In addition, cocoa has many flavanols and polyphenols providing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which are also known to be a benefit of CBD.

Products are available to purchase on LazarusNaturals.com.

Like all Lazarus Naturals offerings, the new CBD Chocolate Bars are third-party tested for potency, pesticides and heavy metals. All test results are available at LazarusNaturals.com by visiting the “Test Results” tab on an individual product page and looking for the batch number listed on the packaging.

Laricifomes officinalis (Agarikon mushroom) has substantial antimicrobial properties in addition to its known antiviral and antibacterial properties.

In 65 A.D, Dioscorides called Agarikon ‘elixirium ad longam vitam,’ the elixir of long life. Today, Agarikon is valued for its immune support and anti-inflammation activity.”

— Michael Van der Linden, Owner of Linden Botanicals

DENVER, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, October 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a recent study published in Mycology: An International Journal on Fungal Biology, Laricifomes officinalis showed antimicrobial properties. Continued research will help to assess its antimicrobial potential.

Laricifomes officinalis, also known as Agarikon mushroom and Fomitopsis officinalis, is a polyporoid fungus recognized as medicinal for millennia, particularly against pulmonary diseases. It has long been valued for its antiviral, antibacterial, and trypanocidal properties. Bioactive molecules recently isolated from this fungus have also been shown to have remarkable antimicrobial effects.

Agarikon and its biologically active substances may be promising source materials in future for the pharmaceutical industry to help treat various diseases with minimum toxicity and minimum side effects.

“In 65 A.D, Greek physician Dioscorides called Agarikon ‘elixirium ad longam vitam,’ the elixir of long life, says Linden Botanicals founder Michael Van der Linden. “His encyclopedia of diseases, medicines, and plant-based remedies was possibly the first herbal medical manual. In ancient Greece, Agarikon was used to treat respiratory illnesses, night sweats, and tuberculosis. Today, Agarikon is valued for its immune support and anti-inflammation activity. It's also used to provide support for coughs, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, and infected wounds.”

Laricifomes officinalis is a medicinal polypore that has been used for millennia to provide support for pulmonary and other diseases. Laricifomes officinalis shows broad-spectrum antibacterial and antiviral activity, including Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Yersinia pseudotuberculosis, Staphylococcus aureus, and Ortopox virus. Chlorinated coumarins from mycelia have been shown to be directly responsible for antiviral-antibacterial activity. Lanostane triterpenoids from basidiomes have been shown to be directly responsible for trypanocidal activity.

“We sell Agarikon as an extract,” Van der Linden says. “We also sell Agarikon as one of six herbal extracts in our ShieldsUp Immune Support Kits. The other extracts in the kit include Cistus incanus, Phyllanthus niruri, and Rosa rugosa (Rose Hips). We created this proprietary collection to provide support for colds, flus, coughs, and invading pathogens.”

About Linden Botanicals: Linden Botanicals sells the world’s healthiest teas and extracts, including Laricifomes officinalis (Agarikon mushroom), Cistus incanus, and Phyllanthus niruri.

Make it Safe 2021 brings global perspectives on the future of manufacturing and worker safety

Seven silhouetted figures against a large window with the words Make it Safe and RETHINK Leadership priorities to build sustainable culture.

Rethink leadership priorities to build sustainable cultures

The threats facing manufacturing today are unprecedented and will likely completely alter many of our ways of work for years to come.

The threats facing manufacturing today are unprecedented and will likely completely alter many of our ways of work for years to come – if not forever. It's time for us to reset.”

— Lisa McGuire, CEO, Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC

CHILLIWACK, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, October 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — On October 28-29, hundreds of attendees from across Canada will connect with more than 50 expert presenters—international industry leaders, public health specialists, and health and safety experts—at Make it Safe 2021.

In 2021 the annual health and safety conference for manufacturers and food processors will focus on new and emerging challenges facing our industries and threatening the health and safety of workers—from labour shortages to supply chain chaos, automation, and hybrid work.

“The threats facing manufacturing today are unprecedented and will likely completely alter many of our ways of work for years to come – if not forever. It's time for us to reset,” says Lisa McGuire, CEO of the Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC. “As leaders, we need to rethink our leadership priorities to build a sustainable culture and refocus our health and safety and people practices for improved performance and business growth.”

For the second year in a row, Make it Safe will be delivered as a virtual conference to allow attendees and speakers to connect safely while we do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19.

“One of the advantages of a virtual meeting is we can invite speakers from around the world to share their expertise and experiences,” said Wayne Arondus, Chief Operating Offer at the Alliance. “Sharing global perspectives on these issues – which businesses are facing around the world – help us to find the best solutions here in British Columbia.”

The 15th annual Make it Safe conference includes sessions addressing critical issues facing:

Business leaders, executives, and employers
• HR leaders
• Health and safety professionals

A bonus track will also provide essential health and safety training for health and safety committees and small business owners.

Two keynote sessions will tackle some of the hottest topics facing manufacturing today:

• Global perspectives on sustainable manufacturing. In this international panel, manufacturing executives share their views on success and growth as our economies recover from the pandemic. This session will explore how global labour shortages and supply chain management put worker safety at risk.

Vaccine policy, passports, and privacy. Many companies are grappling with the impact of creating mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policies for their workplace. This session takes you inside one employer's review of the evidence, the risks, and the challenges to require staff vaccination.

In addition to the keynotes, industry leaders, human resources specialists, health and safety experts, and physicians will lead 36 interactive sessions, including:

• Managing safety and performance in a hybrid work environment. Kevin Wooliams and Heather Johnson of HR West reveal new strategies to manage a mix of office, plant, and home office-based workers and the hazards they may face in a hybrid workplace.

• Stress busting: Strategies to reduce anxiety in the most stressful workplace situations. One in five Canadians experienced symptoms related to anxiety, depression, and PTSD in the last quarter of 2020. Discover strategies to help staff deal with uncertainty as they return to work in a post-pandemic world.

• Redefining health and safety post-pandemic. The pandemic made worker health and safety ad priority in a way that no previous event has. As we look forward to a post-pandemic world, how will we continue to keep employees' safety and health in the spotlight?

• Building culture and team in a diverse workforce. Learn how to strengthen relationships, address challenges, and build a strong team culture in your diverse workplace.

• Automation, robotics, and safety: tomorrow's factories. The global labour shortage has manufacturers embracing automation, robotics, and smart technology in the plant— – but automation is not without risks. This session will explore steps to protect workers in automated plants.

Sandbar Solar & Electric Founder Scott Laskey Speaks at Microgrid California

Scott Laskey Presents Proven Microgrid Solutions for California Grid Problems

"Our company's headquarters serve as a solid example of a proven microgrid solution to connectivity issues here and across the nation," Laskey said.”

— Scott Laskey

SANTA CRUZ, CA, USA, October 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The annual Microgrid California conference was filled to capacity this year. The well-attended session that took place on October 5th focused on solutions designed to keep electric power flowing during PG&E grid disruptions.

Ongoing blackout issues across the state have heightened concerns over PG&E's ability to manage grid breakdowns. Summer weather drives up demand and strains the system. Wildfires add a dangerous dimension of instability to a state-wide problem complicated by operating reserve issues and aging infrastructure.

Featured speaker Scott Laskey's presentation at Microgrid California addressed these issues and focused on viable solutions. Laskey's company, Sandbar Solar & Electric, stands as an established leader among the state's microgrid pioneers. In 2019, his team completed construction on a new site for Sandbar headquarters and operations in Santa Cruz. The project included a microgrid system that generates, stores and distributes the energy power that gives the Sandbar complex invaluable independence from the PG&E power grid.

Sandbar's 11,500-square foot headquarters incorporate both warehouse and office space. Designed and installed by Laskey and his in-house teams, the system is powered by a 55 kW solar PV array and 155kWh ESS with an Ageto microgrid controller. The microgrid is reinforced by Blue Planet Energy's battery system, includes a natural gas generator and consistently provides the company with reliable energy independence.

Laskey explained how his company's microgrid experience helps develop flexible alternatives that can benefit homeowners, small businesses and large industries. Sandbar's freestanding system provides a straightforward path to greater independence from the grid and a greener future.

Improved energy delivery and reliability are key benefits of microgrid installations. The systems are affordable, dependable sources for renewable energy generation. Laskey stressed these advantages and pointed out that Sandbar's on-site microgrid design can be tailored to fit all types of properties. He also noted microgrid reliability during events such as rolling blackouts, severe weather and seasonal wildfires.

"At this conference, we addressed the combined energy and grid challenges that California residents, businesses, industries and institutions face every day," Laskey said. "I speak from the success of our experience when I put my support behind expanding microgrid opportunities across the state. Our company's headquarters serve as a solid example of a proven microgrid solution to connectivity issues here and across the nation."

WILTON, CT, UNITED STATES, October 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — A rare and historic Revolutionary War powder horn, an extensive archive of material pertaining to Playboy magazine’s Hugh Hefner, a document signed by John F. Kennedy as President and a legal summons signed by the legendary lawman Wyatt Earp will all be part of University Archives’ online auction on Wednesday, November 10th, at 10:30 am Eastern time.

The Rare Autographs, Photographs & Books auction features exceptional historical material from multiple collecting categories. “Over thirty lots of the sale illustrate the fascinating and violent history of the Old West, with many pieces from the personal collection of celebrated Western photographer Jim Tackett,” said John Reznikoff, the president of University Archives.

The catalog, with all 391 lots, is up for viewing and bidding now, on the University Archives website (www.UniversityArchives.com) as well as LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com and Auctionzip.com. Phone and absentee bids will also be accepted. It’s the eighth auction that will be conducted from University Archives’ modern new 6,000-square-foot facility in Wilton, Conn.

The list of major categories is extensive, to include Early American (John Hancock, Aaron Burr, Samuel Adams, Richard Henry Lee and others); Presidents and First Ladies (John Adams to Biden, Mary Todd Lincoln to Michelle Obama, others); Old West (Emmett Dalton, Jesse and Frank James, Hanging Judge Roy Bean, others); Art (Picasso, Frank Lloyd Wright, Dr. Seuss, Oskar Fischinger) and Music (The Beatles, Kurt Cobain, George and Ira Gershwin and others).

Other categories include Entertainment, (Stan Laurel, Lenny Bruce, Hefner and others); Sports (Muhammad Ali, Mickey Mantle, Tiger Woods and others); Literature (Walt Whitman, Eugene O’Neill, E.E. Cummings and others); Civil Rights (Martin Luther King, Jr., Lucy Stone, Frederick Douglass and others); and Space / Aviation / Exploration (the Mercury and Gemini space programs, Charles Lindbergh, the Soviet cosmonauts, Fridtjof Nansen and others).

The powder horn belonging to 18-year-old minuteman Oliver Buttrick and used at the Battle of Concord on April 19, 1775 is a remarkable relic of the Revolutionary War and carries a modest pre-sale estimate of $90,000-$100,000. The Battle of Concord was the first battle of the Revolutionary War, and witnessed the “shot heard ‘round the world” that both announced and legitimized the American Revolution. It would be hard to think of a better relic symbolizing American freedom than this item. The horn has an ownership label on vellum at its base and is accompanied by over 50 pages of provenance that is available by request as a .pdf.

The large archive of original letters, cartoons, photographs and memorabilia relating to Hugh Hefner’s 75-year relationship with high school classmate and close friend Jane “Janie” Borson Sellers is expected to realize $50,000-$60,000. Included are over 150 letters by Hefner, half of which are illustrated with pen and ink cartoon drawings by him.

The one-page document signed by President John F. Kennedy on January 21, 1961, and countersigned by Secretary of State Dean Rusk, appointing “Robert S. McNamara of Michigan…Secretary of Defense”, should reach $30,000-$35,000. At the time McNamara was the youngest person ever appointed Secretary of State. He served from 1961-1968 and was largely responsible for intensifying American involvement in the Vietnam War.

The many lots documenting the lawlessness and disorderliness of the Wild West include the summons personally endorsed by a young Wyatt Earp, then just 21 years old and on his first job in law enforcement, as constable of Lamar, Missouri. In May 1870, Earp clearly wrote over twenty words on the back of a legal summons and signed it “WS Earp constable” (estimate: $30,000-$35,000).

A one-page autograph letter signed by Thomas Jefferson, in superb condition, touting America’s superiority over Europe, written to American diplomat William Lee, contains stellar content and is expected to change hands for $25,000-$30,000. Also on offer is a rare and beautiful white Chinese Export porcelain dessert bowl from Jefferson’s White House service, circa 1790s, with 13 gold stars encircling the elegant “J” monogram at the center (estimate: $10,000-$12,000).

A Civil War-dated autograph album compiled by a correspondent of Treasury Secretary Salmon P. Chase contains 180 signatures of Lincoln administration officials and members of the 37th U.S. Congress, including President Abraham Lincoln himself and six current and future Lincoln cabinet members (Seward, Chase, Welles, Stanton, Smith and Fessenden). It is estimated to fetch $20,000-$24,000.

An important compilation of original documents written and/or signed by members of the Hartford Convention of 1814-1815, compiled by Washington real estate developer and manuscript collector Marshall B. Coyne, including documents from all 26 delegates from five states and the Convention secretary, should earn $18,000-$20,000.

A rare letter handwritten by then-President Zachary Taylor to Secretary of the Interior Thomas Ewing, introducing Henry Waller of Louisiana, dated Nov. 27, 1849, has an estimate of $12,000-$14,000. Also, a one-page, partially printed document boldly signed by John Hancock, dated Jan. 1, 1776, appointing a Captain to the 7th Regimen of Foot (the “do not fire until you see the whites of their eyes” Regiment of Battle of Bunker Hill celebrity) should rise to $8,000-$10,000.

An autograph letter written on White House letterhead, signed “Franklin D. Roosevelt” as President, addressed to Frank Deering of Saco, Maine, a fellow Naval history collector, dated Feb. 19, 1934, is estimated to go for $10,000-$12,000. Also, an autograph letter signed by Charles Darwin written to his land agent John Higgins in 1859, just a few weeks prior to publication of his On the Origin of Species, should hit $3,000-$4,000.

A large bust portrait photograph of the renowned American architect Frank Lloyd Wright, boldly signed and inscribed on the mat, “To Max Moffett at Taliesin Aug 24/50 Frank Lloyd Wright”, is expected to finish at $5,000-$6,000; while a large, glossy black and white photograph of all four Beatles, signed, inscribed, dated and numbered by French photographer Jean-Marie Périer (b. 1940), framed, should garner $3,000-$4,000.
