There will be plenty to sip, see and sample during the fourth annual Gardens, Galleries and Grapes tour this Saturday and Sunday. Sixteen artists, gardeners, vintners and farmers – all members of the Shenandoah County Artisan Trail – are participating in the self-guided tour, which runs from Toms Brook to New Market. Some of the activities are only scheduled for one day of the weekend.
Thanks to the mild winter, Main Street in Woodstock came alive early this year with the white blooms gracing both the east and west sides of the southern gateway into town. The trees can grow several stories tall, and its fruit is inedible. “We don’t really recommend people plant them,” said Kathy Lutz, owner of Tall Oaks Nursery in Mount Jackson.
For more than 25 years, a pair of Woodstock women have been weaving their way into people’s hearts and hearths. Virginia Stultz and Jean Whetzel, both former Shenandoah County Public School teachers, have been teaching basket weaving classes since 1991. There’s no telling now how many baskets made in their classes sit in homes around the Northern Shenandoah Valley. The women learned the art side by side.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
