The Return has been reviewed as the most authentic Beatles tribute band in the world!

The captivating, fun, exciting spirit that came to be known as "Beatlemania" is alive again in the Return-the world's most authentic and entertaining Beatles tribute band. These four lads, all in their early to mid-twenties, have carefully and skillfully recreated the Beatles experience by not only performing all the great songs of the original four, but also by sporting the same suits, boots, mop-tops, musical instruments, and gear. 

Wingard's Nursery & Garden Center in Lexington is hosting The Return on October 8th.  The event begins at 7:00 p.m., tickets are $35, tax-deductable and on sale now at Wingard's.  Be sure to park at Pilgrim Lutheran Church and a shuttle buses  will take you back and forth to Wingard's. 

The Art in the Garden event normally sells out and tickets will not be sold the day of the show, so stop in today or call 803 359 9091, and purchase your tickets.  Ticket price includes: a delicious dinner prepared by Dupre Catering; beverages from Sam's Fine Wines & Spirits; art from the works of leading Midland's artists; a silent auction; and a two hour concert by the world's greatest Beatles Tribute Band, The Return (, which begins at 8:00.  The 5th annual Art in the Garden benefits Lexington Interfaith Community Services.

Wingard's Nursery & Garden Center

Barbara and I attended the 3rd annual Art in the Garden (2008) and saw The Return for the first time.  We saw The Return for the second time last year in a concert at Winthrop University.  Both shows were great.  We've got our tickets already for the concert at Wingard's Nursery.   Call to get your tickets today!

Dropbox: Recommended by Mel Coker

Mel Coker uses Dropbox!
 Dropbox: Great for File Backup and Anywhere Access 
Dropbox is software that syncs your files online and across your computers.  It's EASY and FREE (up to 2 GB).  Put your files into your Dropbox on one computer, and they'll be instantly available on any of your other computers that also have Dropbox installed.  Because copies of your files are stored on Dropbox's secure servers, you can also access them from any computer or mobile device using the Dropbox website.

With Dropbox, your files are always in sync.  Let's say you're editing a document in the Dropbox folder at home. As soon as you press Save, Dropbox will sync this file to all your other computers and mobile devices instantly and automatically. It's as if you saved the document to all of your computers. This gives you the freedom to work anywhere and always have the files you need.

Dropbox lets you share files easily.  You can easily share entire folders or photo albums with Dropbox. Simply put the folders you want to share in your Dropbox, and invite people to them. You can also send people links to specific files within your Dropbox. This makes Dropbox perfect for team projects.

With Dropbox, online backup is automatic.  Any file you put into your Dropbox folder is automatically backed up to our servers. Even if your computer has a melt-down, your files are safe on Dropbox and can be restored at any time. While our free 2GB account is perfect for backing up your documents, we offer larger accounts (up to 100GB) for backing up your music and video collections.

My important files are always installed in my Dropbox folder.  Then I have access to my Dropbox files  on my home PC, work PC and my laptop travel PC.   I can also access these files on my iPhone.  I use Dropbox all the time.  If you don't do any backup of critical and important files or if you need files access from multiple PCs, you should install Dropbox now.
Get Dropbox Now - with an extra 250 MB of storage

As I said previously, Dropbox is FREE for up to 2 gigabytes of storage.  There are reasonable cost plans for more storage  (Great if you have lots of photo and music files to backup).  CLICK HERE and get 250 MB of free account storage (2.25 GB) because of your referral from Mel Coker.

Ready to Buy a Car in Columbia, SC?

Mel Coker's Car Buying Experience - Columbia, SC
I was ready for a new car last week and after a fairly extensive review of vehicles, I settled on a 2011 Honda Pilot (those miles pile up on my vehicle selling homes all over Greater Columbia).  I talked with 3 different Honda dealerships - two in the Greater Columbia area and one in another town.  My new Honda Pilot drives and looks great!

If you are ready for a new Honda (or used) vehicle, I highly recommend David Moody at Honda of Columbia. David Moody was very professional in his sales approach. I feel I received a very good deal on my new Honda and a very fair trade-in allowance. When you're ready to buy a new Honda, call David Moody at Honda of Columbia: cell (803) 315-1153 or at the dealership (803) 256-0156. Let him know that Mel Coker sent you over.  Click here for the Honda of Columbia website
Honda of Columbia is located between West Columbia and Lexington on U.S. 378 at I-20 (4333 Sunset Boulevard).
