Welcome to Millbrook Memories Resturant List in Millbrook, New York

As I continue to think of posts for this site Millbrook Memories, I thought of my life in how many restaurants have come and gone throughout the years and how many I may have pictures of in my father’s collection!

So I decided to go on a search in the images I have already scanned and share them with all of you!

However, first I had to do some research to see who is still actively doing business now in Millbrook, New York!

So here is the list I was able to create of the Restaurants in Millbrook, NY that may be of interest to you, especially with Valentine’s Day next week!

As many reading, this may remember how The Google of Millbrook was The Corner News Store and it would always endorse local businesses, and I would like to use this site to do the same!

Enjoy Valentine’s Day by supporting these local restaurant’s in Millbrook, NY.

It Worked! A Millbrook Memories First

Hello Fellow Millbrook Memories Lovers!

Welcome To My First Millbrook Memories Review

I am so excited to share this review of an E-book that I discovered that actually is working!



box of unorganized pictures
Does this look familiar to you?
Then I have something that may help you finally get this out of the boxes and out of the closets to share with all!

The Name Says It All!

This is the Title!

“Save Your Photos and Your Sanity:  to Organize and Safeguard Your Entire Photo Collection…in as little as 10 days, without losing your mind!”

Now, how’s that for a title to get your attention?

I hope I have yours now!

If you have taken a stroll through Millbrook Memories, you will see that I am on a quest to accomplish getting my fathers-John Kading’s- lifetime of photos and slides into an organized system so in that I will be able to share them with their stories on this website!

I am on a quest to bring JOY to all those that these images will give to many people around the world!

I mean, after all, Millbrook had the Bennett College for years that had students from around the world!

Sharing Millbrook, New York around the world with John Kading's pictures!
Sharing Millbrook, New York around the world with John Kading’s images!

We also had Millbrook School too!

And so many that have their Millbrook Memori

Dad’s Workplace for Organizing his Pictures

Here’s a sneak peek of a corner in my father’s living room that we have created into the workspace to get this major project completed in the months to come! Those boxes are all filled with pictures!


What makes me excited is that the suggestions in this Ebook were what I had set up for my dad to organize his lifetime of pictures, and it is working!

Yeah! Doing the Happy Dance!

So the possibilities of this Ebook in helping you or anybody that has been feeling guilty of not organizing their family photos, I can now say it is so very possible to get it done with this information!

You now have a way!

And I want to help all of you too, so you can also do the Happy Dance!

Storage of Your Photos could be Destroying them right now!

The suggestions of the proper way to store your photos is also a very important factor to consider when you are ready to organize your photo albums too!

Did you know that you are destroying your beloved pictures if you have them in one of those magnetic albums?

Yep! I know but The Corner News Store, as well as so many other stores, sold them for displaying pictures!

This book will tell you how and why you need to rescue them immediately from being destroyed in those magnetic albums!

My Plan, Your Plan

What I loved about the planning to organize your photos is that we are all so different to what may work for us, and that is so important to have a successful outcome too in accomplishing this task!

Just for those that are overwhelmed with the idea to begin this task of organizing your photos, I have to honestly say that you are not alone because that is the #1 reason why people avoid it!

But I want to share with you a poem that was included in this Ebook called:

“Save Your Photos and Your Sanity: How to Organize and Safeguard Your Entire Photo Collection…in as little as 10 days, without losing your mind!”

Strangers in a Box

By: Pam Harazim, East Hampton, CT

Strangers in a Box Do you want to be one of them?
Do you want any of your loved ones to become Strangers In a Box? I can help!

Come, look with me inside this drawer,

In this box I’ve often seen,

At the pictures, black and white,

Faces proud, still, and serene.

I wish I knew the people,

These strangers in the box,

Their names and all their memories,

Are lost among my socks.

I wonder what their lives were like,

How did they spend their days?

What about their special times?

I’ll never know their ways.

If only someone had taken time,

To tell, who, what, where, and when,

These faces of my heritage,

Would come to life again.

Could this become the fate,

Of the pictures we take today?

The faces and the memories,

Someday to be passed away?

Take time to save your stories,

Seize the opportunity when it knocks,

Or someday you and yours,

Could be strangers in the box!


Now, I don’t know how you took this poem, but I can tell you that I honestly don’t want anyone to become a stranger in a box, do you?

Please don't allow your family to become a Stranger in a Box
Please don’t let your family or yourself become A Stranger in a Box!

And this is exactly what motivates me to continue this project of what I have referred to as A Forever Gift!

It would break my heart to not be able to finish this project of sharing my father’s pictures and have him be able to tell the stories that go along with them.

So if this is touching your heart, and it would break your heart to not take care of your family’s beloved pictures, then please just take the first step to order right now:

“Save Your Photos and Your Sanity: How to Organize and Safeguard Your Entire Photo Collection…in as little as 10 days, without losing your mind!”

You’ll be glad you took the first step too! And your family will thank you too!

Taking the first step for organizing your photos will surely begin to bring about a sense of accomplishment, too!

(I thought I’d take advantage right now of one of my adult colouring pages with that word Accomplishment!)

Accomplishment of organizing your photos
Accomplishment! Organize your photos!

That word is fitting for me considering I want so much to accomplish this project as a Forever Gift to honour my parents and to share my father’s images of Millbrook, New York and so much more!

After the pictures are organized!

They will need to be scanned into the digital format to share on this website, and this Epson FastFoto is on my WishList to do that task!

Then after the pictures are done, we will be moving on to my father’s slide collection!

After months of research, I have finally come to this Flatbed Scanner by Epson as the one, to scan the slides and to get that job done!

It will scan 4 slides at a time and automatically edit and correct as it is performing the scanning, too!

Great time saver in the Editing process too!

One Life to Live with only One Chance to Save our Memories

Because we only get one life to live!

And it’s up to us to save those images that have captured our lives by the pictures we had taken of it!

You need a Hero to help you save those precious images and prevent any of them to be destroyed!

My hope is to inspire you to desire to share your life’s photos, once they have been organized and brought about an awakening of sorts inside of you!

My hope is to bring that cherished photo’s out of the boxes in that dark closet, out to have you and your family and friends get a chance to admire them before they become Strangers in A Box!

Here’s the link to SAVE YOUR Pictures!

Click Below!

“Save Your Photos and Your Sanity: How to Organize and Safeguard Your Entire Photo Collection…in as little as 10 days, without losing your mind!”

Now it’s your time to become your family’s Hero and preserve your family’s precious pictures for future generations to come!

Saturday morning After Dad’s Open Heart Surgery


January 29, 2011

Saturday morning.

John Kading healing after Heart Surgery

Dad is doing very good!


On his board has the dismissal date as January 30 Sunday, which is tomorrow, for him to go to rehab.

He’s chosen the Lutheran Home or the Tompkins house for his after heart surgery rehab.

(Note in the end it became The Pines he would do his rehab at!)

At this rate, he’ll be all set at home by the time we leave for Vail, Colorado on February 12th.

Ashley is coming this year to ski with her dad, and am grateful that they have this bond between them with their love of this sport of skiing!

Recovery with Visitors Always Speeds Healing

Back to my Dad’s recovery from his open-heart operation on Tuesday.

He had my Uncle Henry and Aunt Ann come for a visit yesterday afternoon, which it is always nice to be in their company.

I’m so glad I have held so many great memories with both of them, and their two grandchildren, Emily and Hank, Jeff and Marcie’s children, on the Alaskan cruise.

Kading's Family Alaskan Cruise in August 2009
Kading’s Family Alaskan Cruise in August 2009

We had done a family Alaskan Cruise back in August 2009.

What a great time we all had!

(But that’s another post I will certainly cover at another time!)

Dad’s in Pain

However, later in the afternoon, my dad had appeared he was in some kind of pain.

So I called and his nurse, Anne to check on him.

She found that his catheter hadn’t been hooked up properly, so she fixed that and then sat him up straight, instead of reclining, which seemed to help a bit.

But then it came more and more obvious something else was going on.

So the nurse called a PA to come to check it out.

He came in, ordered the medication, which just so happened to be the same medicine which mom and I have taken many times when we have had a urinary tract infection.

So I make a little joke and say to my dad,” Well, now you will know what mom and I have had to feel like when we have that infection!”

However, if this is the only thing that my dad gets from the surgery.

I am so very thankful.

Time to take care of ME

I’m going to get a massage today, too!

Got to take care of myself!

Believe me, especially after this stressful week with my dad’s open-heart surgery on Tuesday.

I’m looking forward to laying on that massage table and having the talented massage therapist bring a bliss to my body, mind and spirit!

Then after my massage with her, I will exchange a Reiki treatment on her!

And so it is…

John Kading’s Heart Surgery Update

January 27, 2011,

My dad is doing really well after his open-heart surgery on Tuesday.

Mom and I got to see him about 11 o’clock yesterday morning.

He was sitting in the recliner chair next to his bed with those yellow socks on that had those little white dots of grippers all over the bottom!

He had tubes connected to him that came from all over the place.

Mom counted something like 10 bags hanging above him that went into a spot on his neck.

He also had a couple of tubes that were emptying what was at the surgery site into two boxes on the floor.

His eyelids looked upon me like he was very tired and needed to go to sleep.

But as the day went on, it wasn’t as noticeable to me anymore.

All in all, he looks very good for what he had gone through just the day before.

I’m so grateful for this outcome of this serious operation to fix his heart problems!

We all are in a deep sense of relief that this surgery is over and had been successful, too!

You can instantly see the difference in the color of his face, that has now a pinkish color to it, that it didn’t have before the operation, either!

Amazing in how when the heart is beating properly and getting the much-needed oxygen throughout your body that it instantly shows up in your face by the color it is, too!

So grateful for all the prayers and well wishes that so many have been sending to my father too!

Hello to all the Millbrook Lovers,

I wanted to write this post because I felt it was time, and I needed to stop to ASK something of all of you reading this now.

First, I want to tell all of you in how much I appreciate all that have encouraged me to create this site to honour my parents, John and Marilyn Kading.

I am so touched by of all the comments that have been posted on the Millbrook Memories FaceBook page and want everyone to know whenever I visit my dad, I read them all out loud to him!

There are still some names he remembers, too!

John and Marilyn Kading of Millbrook, New York

Thankful for that!

It touches me so deeply in what words so many people have written in their memories of him, or my mother or The Corner News Store, too.

I am so grateful.

But I need your HELP

I need your help to comment, either on the website or the Facebook page to ideas in what you would love to see my post that will make your heart jump for joy in the memories they will bring up to your mind?

Ideas such as these:

  • The Corner News Store through the years
  • Bennett College
  • The Millbrook Central Schools-Elm Drive, The Middle School, The High School (Old and New)
  • The businesses throughout the Village of Millbrook
  • The Restaurants of Millbrook
  • The Churches-St. Joseph, Grace Church, Lyall Memorial Federated Church
  • Thorndale
  • Tribute Gardens
  • Millbrook Library

    Thorne Building in Millbrook, New York
    Thorne Building in Millbrook, New York
  • Thorne Building
  • Parades-Memorial Day, July 4th, etc.
  • Millbrook Community Day

These are just a few of the picture ideas I know that my dad has in his collection, but would appreciate your feedback in what would you want me to first focus on to bring the joy of his pictures into your hearts?

Millbrook Memories Store

My father’s famous saying I have heard him say over and over again throughout my life is this:

“Find a need and fulfil it!”

So with that, I need your suggestions to what may be your needs that I can fulfil here on this website called Millbrook Memories?

My intentions when I began this site was to share my father’s lifetime of pictures of his beloved Millbrook!

And as I continued my research I discovered many Print On Demand companies that will take your photo or image and print it on products:

  • T-Shirts
  • Mugs
  • Calendars
  • Blankets
  • Pillows
  • and the list goes on and on just depends on the company.

Then I found a company that would take your images and make an adult colouring book from it!

(I have caught that Adult Coloring Wave, and plan to never get off it either!)

Then, of course, there are the Photo Books that many images in my father’s collection would make a SPECIAL gift for someone!

Organize the Memories

Another category that I am finding in actually performing this project of sorting and organizing my father’s lifetime of pictures as well as his slides, is the “HOW TO” Do it in the correct way so in that they can be found easily again?

Honestly, I have to confess that I have been researching this for years.

I guess I knew that this day would eventually come where I would need to use it!

And this is the time when I need to get this done!

Are you too feeling this sudden urge to get this done in your life?

Are there others like me that have suddenly awakened to the fact that time is running out to get this done?

Are you suddenly aware that time may not be on your side concerning’s your family member’s memory as they age?

Are you suddenly realizing that their memory and the stories behind the pictures may be coming to an end soon, too?

Maybe, you are like me that just has to get this project done and complete before there is no more time to ASK?

Do you have someone, maybe a parent or family member that had taken all those precious pictures of your family, and even the extended family and friends for years, to have them either being forgotten in photo albums or in shoe boxes?

Do you say that someday you should get them all organized and scanned for your children or your grandchildren?

Well, maybe you should start today, and let’s do this together, shall we?

I’ll share some ideas that have been working for me and you share what may be working for you too!

Amazon Has it All!

While learning MY HOW in how to create and build this website, I learned in how I could help my readers find the perfect products for what they needed and wanted to satisfy their deepest wishes!

So I joined the Amazon Associate program to have those most helpful and necessary products that went together along with what I am doing to organize my father’s lifetime of pictures and slides!

I wanted to show you what I used all along this exciting and yet “urgent” journey to successfully get this done and complete!

Here are some items that may be of interest to you too!

I am sure as I continue on this adventure that I will discover many more helpful products to help you too.

The Flip-Pal mobile Scanner To Record the Stories to the Pictures

I just recently found a product that I am very excited about and it is called The Flip-Pal!

It will scan the pictures onto an SD card or even through the wireless technology to your computer, tablet or phone!

But what gets me so excited is that once the pictures are on your computer you can have someone tell those stories that go with all those pictures too!


Honestly, I can’t tell you how many times I lay there in my bed wondering in how I was going to get my dad to tell the stories to his thousands of pictures in a way that would work!

But finally, my prayers have been answered!

There’s The Flip-Pal!

Check it out!

Your family will thank you!

I just ordered mine, and will keep you all updated in how it works as I continue this “Forever Gift” I am creating to honour my parents and share the joy my father’s images give to so many people!

Mother’s Day and Father’s Day is Coming Up!

Hand's of Time
Hand’s of Time

With Mother’s Day and Father’s Day coming up, and you never know when those Hands of Time will be up for your loved one!

Check out The Flip-Pal!

Great Gift!

Save your family’s memories before you can’t!

I would appreciate any suggestions that would be of help to me in this quest to successfully complete the sharing of my father’s lifetime of pictures of the beloved Village of Millbrook!

Thank you!

Enjoy the Millbrook Memories!
