    So sorry to hear about Sam’s passing. Our family were long time patrons of Paramount and my father did electrical work at the old location plus the current one. A true friend and St. Peter’s parishioner. We will miss his expert pharmacy skills that helped our family so many times in the past years. Sam’s kindness and generosity in all community events were stellar. He never said no to a poster in his window for any event big or small for any community in the riverfront area. His generosity to others and his monetary contibutions for all riverfront events were again stellar and first class. Thanks Sam for being a great and lasting businessman in Riverside for generations. Although I cannot attend the funeral on Friday but parking near Paramount for church will remind all of us of Sam’s faith and commitment to his church and community . Rest in peace and in God’s love.
    Rich and family.

    Free tours in Porto – I have decided to hghliight these tours every chance I get. Well, Porto as well has free tours. Unlike other parts of Europe where you have to be at a certain time at a certain place (a central one, generally speaking), when it comes to the Porto tours you need to telephone a night before. That’s that, you call. Anyway, take a look on their site.
