Dear Sun Spots: Would it be possible to please obtain addresses for Bode Miller and Sasha Cohen? Both were in the 2006 Winter Olympics. I do not have a computer or e-mail. Your column is the best. Thanks. – Marian Cummings, West Paris.

Answer: Try contacting Cohen at Sasha Cohen, c/o www.sashacohen.com, 132 Waterford Park Drive, Greer, S.C. 29650. For more on Cohen, people can check out her Web site at www.sashacohen.com.

Contact Miller at Bode Miller, 58 Easton Valley Road, Franconia, N.H. 03580. If this address isn’t successful, you might consider trying to contact Miller through Bretton Woods Mountain Resort where he serves as director of skiing. The resort can be reached via the Web at www.brettonwoods.com. Also, the resort will hold the Miller 28 – 30 BodeFest Ski & Golf Challenge 2006 in April. Miller is the 2004/2005 World Cup Overall and Super G Champion, and two-time Olympic silver medalist. He will return to his native New Hampshire to host BodeFest. The resort is on Route 302, Bretton Woods, N.H, (800) 314-1752.

Dear Sun Spots: I have been a daily reader of your column and marvel at the number or readers whom you have answered questions for. Now, I hopefully can find a reply for mine.

For several years, I have used Coffee Time coffee syrup to flavor milk drinks, which is a required part of my diet. Recently, I was unable to locate it on the shelves at Hannaford so I inquired about the absence and was told it was no longer carried. I tried a few more stores and had no luck there, so decided to try your assistance. Could you possibly locate a source for me? Thank you. – F.J., No Town.

Answer: The Coffee Time brand was owned by Silver Brothers of New Hampshire and manufactured under license by the Royal Syrup Co. of Boston until 1972. Coffee Time is currently owned by Autocrat Coffee and Syrup Co., 10 Blackstone Valley Place, Lincoln, R.I. 02865, (800) 288-6272) or via e-mail at [email protected]

The company’s Web site is www.autocrat.com. Sun Spots contacted a customer service spokeswoman who says Hannaford, Shaw’s and Stop ‘n Shop carry their product. Hannaford has confirmed that both the Auburn and Lewiston stores carry Coffee Time and you may want to check with either stores. Contact Hannaford, 95 Spring St., Auburn (784-6497), and 692 Sabattus St., Lewiston (784-0721).

Both Lewiston and Auburn Shaw’s also carry this item. Contact them at 600 Center St., Auburn 784-6971, and 27 East Ave., Lewiston 784-6929.

In addition, you can also order Coffee Time online at Autocrat’s Web site, which lists six 16-ounce bottles for $19.95. And, once you receive your supply, you might like to check out the following recipe posted at the Web site:

Coffee cabinets or frappes. Ingredients & method: Beat 2 tablespoons coffee syrup, 1 scoop of ice cream and 6 ounces of milk for 1 minute, or until ice cream is dissolved. Pour and serve.

Dear Sun Spots: I read your Sun Spots everyday, and it is a great resource. I know you have been backlogged; but I have had this request for a long time. I would appreciate knowing about a radio show that aired locally (I am told) about 30 years ago. The host was Al Ricker and I am interested to know what is the name of the tune (theme song) played every day on his show. Your answer is greatly appreciated. I can be reached at 377-6856. – Norm Perrin, Winthrop.
