Mike Watt, owner of The Plush Boutique, was on hand to show off the new line of Levi's 511 Commuter Line which are perfect for cyclists. Water resistant, 3M Reflective Tape on the interior cuffs, and pockets with features galore sure show Levi's dedication at gearing this to cyclists.

David Goyette Launches New Book "Heading to Happy" At Splice

David proudly displays his new book. Photo by Evan HoltDavid Goyette, Executive Assistant to Mayor Daryl Bennett, was at Splice last night to launch his new book, Heading to Happy. This is David's second book, and it took him just over three years to write it. Heading to Happy is David's personal collection of 40 learned lessons in the art of living.

Exerpts were read by Betsy McGregor and Tim Rowat, while Jason Chessar gave a personal comentary on how the book influenced him.

David's book consists of 40 notes, but the most important one to him is based on the last line of The Beatles song "The End" on Abbey Road—"The love you take, Is equal to the love you make." That is the most important message David would like to convey.

All proceeds of the evening were donated to Our Space, and graciously accepted by Our Space Executive Director, Ken Whatman.

Peterborough's Carley Stenson Strikes A Deal On "Dragons' Den"

Carley Stenson at SpliceAnother local entrepreneur (there have been many) entered the den on Wednesday night's episode of Dragons' Den to deliver her pitch.

Carley Stenson of Peterborough created the company Anywhere But Here, which is a global fashion house that carries unique and authentic clothing from around the world. One of those products are Siams, a one size fits all Thai fisherman's pant perfect for yoga, the cottage, maternity, or simply lounging at home. 

I discovered these pants myself last summer from her booth at the International Dragon Boat Festival. I knew right away it was a product I would love. Carley was most helpful explaining and demonstrating the product.

In order to promote her company, she held an event at Splice on Wednesday night for the community to come to. A tropical themed event, she had her products on display for purchase, followed by the screening of Dragons' Den. 

Her pitch on developing her Thai fisherman's pant further was the first to be presented on the episode and after four of the Dragon judges turned her down, she struck a deal with the fifth judge, Jim Treliving. Congrats to Carley!
