Third Trump Campaign official pleads guilty in Russia investigation

Where can I find it?


Q: I have always used Chore Boy Golden Fleece scrubbing cloths. But I cannot find them anywhere. I have looked at Publix, Wal-Mart and several other places. These cloths are wonderful for cleaning dishes or pots and pans before placing them in dishwasher. Please help! Thank you. Lynette Sewell, Marietta

A: Lynette, these are easy to find if you know where to look. Chore Boy Golden Fleece cloths are available for $2.29 each (box of two) at Walls Ace Hardware, 2932 Canton Road, Marietta, 770-423-0500. The store also stocks Chore Boy sponges. If this location isn’t convenient, you can have most Ace Hardware stores order the item and have it shipped to a store near you for free pick up.

Q: I’ve been ordering Weetabix cereal biscuits online but I would really prefer to find them nearby if that’s at all possible. I appreciate anything you can do to help me find this cereal. P. Hansen, Dunwoody

A: Weetabix whole-grain cereal has been a British breakfast staple since 1932. It contains very little sugar, and is a good source of fiber, plus it’s Non GMO Project verified. You can find 14-ounce boxes of your cereal for $4.49 at Kroger, 2036 Johnson Ferry Road, Atlanta, 770-455-6799.

Q: I am looking for a bottle of tequila called mezcal de Oaxaca made by Mina Real. It is 100 percent puro de agave, silver. Any help would be great. Thanks. Ken Riordon, email

A: According to the company, Oaxaca-based Mina Real silver mezcal is made from agave that’s been steam-roasted in brick kilns rather than using the more traditional method of wood roasting. You can order a bottle of Mina Real silver mezcal for $39.99 through Tower Beer, Wine and Spirits, 2161 Piedmont Road, 404-881-0902. The store should get it in about two to three days from the time you place the order.

Q: I purchased a Wesley Allen iron king-size bed in 1985. Wesley Allen beds are discontinued. I moved and need professional help to reassemble bed. I can’t find the paperwork that came with the bed when I purchased it. I treasure this bed, and your help would be appreciated. I have photo if that would be helpful. Ywannee Nix, Atlanta

A: For more than 40 years, Wesley Allen has produced eclectic iron furniture, including ornate beds. The good news is that the furniture has not been discontinued, and Wesley Allen is still in business, making its products in an eco-friendly plant in Los Angeles. In fact, there are several dealers in the Atlanta area, including Tuscany Fine Furnishings, 1570 Holcomb Bridge Road, Roswell, 770-993-0640. Call the store and tell them what you need. The representative I spoke with said that the store has several delivery men who know how to assemble the beds.
