Mollie Stone’s is the first California-based grocery store to offer ChargePoint Electric Vehicle Charging Stations!
We are excited to make the electric vehicle charging stations available to our Sausalito customers beginning on February 7, 2013 and will soon install stations at our Burlingame and Palo Alto locations. Customers are offered one hour of free charging while they are shopping at Mollie Stone’s.
Mollie Stone’s has partnered with the ChargePoint network of charging stations and smart phone applications. These free mobile apps provide an easy way to locate stations, get directions, and start or stop a charging session remotely.
Awareness of one’s own health is important. Eating healthy and exercising are not enough! Steps must be taken to make sure the body is in proper working order. Just as one would take their car to the mechanic when it “just doesn’t sound right,” one must also “listen” to the body’s signals of possible problems.
Health Screening by Heart Watch IV is an excellent beginning. Heart Watch IV is a fully insured State & Federal CLIA-Certified laboratory (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments), which specializes in public health and corporate health screenings. Based in San Luis Obispo, California, since 1989, Heart Watch IV provides safe, accurate and low-cost screening services throughout California, Arizona, Washington, Oregon, Nevada and Texas.

Chef, author and television icon Julia Child would have had her 100th birthday this month. She was born on August 15, 1912 in Pasadena, California and had a reputation from the beginning as a lively prankster with an adventurous personality.
In 1948, Julia moved to Paris, France with her husband Paul Child. She quickly developed a passion for French cuisine and attended the Cordon Bleu cooking school. She used her training to adapt sophisticated French recipes for Americans in a two-volume cookbook called Mastering the Art of French Cooking. The 734 page, 3 pounds heavy cookbook was a bestseller for five years after it was published.
To promote her cookbook, Julia prepared one of her recipes for an omelet on public television and was an instant hit. This led to the debut of her first TV show, The French Chef, in 1962. She filmed each episode as if it were live, maintaining a low budget without retakes and adding comedic effects with her mistakes.
She stayed in the spotlight well into her old age, passing away just before her 92nd birthday in 2004. Click here for 10 little-known facts about her life. (For example, 573 pounds of butter were used during her show Baking with Julia!)
We all have a favorite Julia Child recipe - what’s yours? To celebrate Julia’s life and all-around culinary awesome-ness, we have gathered some classic Julia Child recipes from around the web. Keep reading for the links!
