SuperINN for a Super Inn

(Or why our guests love technology, even if they don't know it!  Part 2 in our B&B Technology blog series).

The transistor was developed in 1947, as was I.  Sadly the transistor has had much more of an effect on humanity than I have!  This post was going to be all about microprocessors and how they have revolutionized the business of running a B&B but as they are so ubiquitous right through our lives, it seemed a little disingenuous to write about the way integrated circuits now control everything from the oven temperature to the fire alarm system.

Why we love technology at the Carlisle House!

Technology? Bed and Breakfast? Not usually expressions to be found in the same sentence!  But one afternoon as I was sitting quietly relaxing with a cup of tea before our guests started to arrive, I found myself thinking about the ways in which technology impacts upon our B&B and the guest experience we offer.

There are some things that may seem fairly obvious, the telephone for instance.  But let's just think about that one for a minute.

Thank you to all service members and families.

We celebrated by hosting eight veterans for the

Several  of our local businesses expressed their gratitude by giving gifts to each. Restaurants giving Dinner for Two included Piatto, Chen's Asian, Rillo's, Andalusia, Cafe Bruges and Market Cross PubGeorge's Flowers gave each a floral bouquet and Diane at
Lisa and Andy (Army)
Royce (Army)
Sweet Jubilee Gourmet candy gave a huge box of treats.

Between the eight service people (we had 2 women), they represented a total of over 150 years of service!

They all agreed they would
