The Stone and Paddle’s California-style thin-crust pizzas acquire their subtle crunch while baking atop a hot stone in a 600-degree oven. Gourmet toppings such as hot sausage, shrimp and artichoke, and spinach and gorgonzola grace the pies, which share table space with flatbread sandwiches that are also stone-baked. Though chefs must return nightly to the steel-encased bunker where they safeguard their secret dough recipe, guests can enjoy a new location in Rocky Hill, linger on the shaded patio at the Vernon location or watch sports on Manchester's flat-screen TVs.
The owners of Vero Pizza chose the name vero, meaning "true" or "real", to reflect their food philosophy. Each pizza, salad, and panini sandwich is prepared with locally farmed produce, all-natural meats, unbleached flours, and artisan-baked breads. Diners may split specialty pizzas such as the Picante with buffalo chicken, blue cheese, and celery while sipping a glass of wine or beer brought from home.
MaidPro specializes in whipping grimy households into gleaming shape. Over the course of up to two hours, the staff of dirt-busting cleanliness experts will scrub your home according to a 49-point checklist that tackles bathrooms, kitchens, bedrooms, hallways, and cupboards under the stairs.

The MaidPro staff, trained through the proprietary MaidPro University, go through thorough criminal history and background checks prior to employment, ensuring security and peace-of-brain for all. Whatever the filth, the staff of MaidPro will make sure it gets out of sight, out of mind, and out of the astral plane.

National Credit Masters' CEO Daniel Brenes knows what many of his clients have gone through because he himself lost nearly everything when the housing market crashed. He and his staff of credit-restoration specialists work with clients to remove negative and incorrect information and sad faces from their credit reports so they can be more secure financially.
They rely on five laws to get creditors and credit bureaus to back the claims that they make by using documented information. If the creditors can't validate their claims, they are required to remove the negative information from the credit report. National Credit Masters' staff also provides advice to help clients manage their finances and rebuild their credit.
