Nazareth is now All Gussied Up. On Friday, doors officially opened to a combination tanning salon and boutique at 139 South Main Street. And the sign on the door says it all - it's the hope of the happy UN-housewives.
How did a bottom-feeding blogger like me, with absolutely no class, get invited to a grand opening like this?
Beats the hell out of me. Maybe because my bunker is close.

I'll be the first to admit I know next to nothing about tanning or chic boutiques. But I loved the nice little pieces of jewelry, handbags and laughed out loud at the exotic soaps, with names like "Filthy Farm Girl," "Creamy Coconut Cutie" and "Raw Chocolate Rascal."
The Nazareth Chamber of Commerce managed to pack the house with close to 30 well-wishers from the local business community.
Kelly and Megan laid out one helluva' spread for the occasion, too, which even included a champagne punch.

People from Roseto live an average of about 2,700 years. Most blame it on a Mediterranean diet, but I say it's the damn cupcakes.
I would never have discovered this fountain of youth had I missed out on Friday's Grand Opening.
Nazareth Mayor Fred Daugherty sent his regrets. State Rep. Joe Emrick sent a Proclamation. Congressman Charlie Dent, however, was there to welcome and encourage another small business, which he called the "backbone of our country."
Then he went for the cupcakes.
Now you know why he looks so youthful.
