Dear Sun Spots: The last few times I’ve gone to Gifford’s I’ve noticed that they don’t sell whoopie pie ice cream anymore. I’ve heard rave reviews about it, so why isn’t Gifford’s selling it anymore?

Is only the Auburn location not selling this ice cream anymore or is it true for all locations in Maine? Are there any other ice cream shops in Maine that might sell whoopie pie ice cream? Thank you for your time. – Karen, Auburn.

Answer: Unfortunately, according to Peggy at Gifford’s Ice Cream, the whoopie pie flavored ice cream was discontinued.

Dear Sun Spots: I would appreciate it very much if anyone would be able to give away any catalogs of any kind and magazines such as Woman’s Day, Family Circle, Good Housekeeping, First and other good magazines, in good to excellent condition, as I take them to patients at carious nursing homes. They enjoy looking at them. God Bless. – No Name, Auburn.

Answer:
Anyone with catalogs or magazines to donate may write to the column.

Dear Sun Spots: Thanks for all your help. I would like to know where I can get filters for an Electrolux vacuum cleaner. I used to get them in the Norway area, but no one carries them now. Thank you. – No Name, South Paris.

Answer:
Contact Aerus Electrolux at 800-898-1303; they have representatives in your area that can deliver filters to your home. Electrolux vacuum filters are also available at Lowe’s, 650 Turner St., Auburn.

Dear Sun Spots: I have had very good results with you before, and hope I can be of help to someone this time.

I have two amplifiers and a small karaoke machine that I am willing to give to anyone who could make use of them. They work very well, and I thought that maybe someone in the younger generation may be planning to start a small music group and could use this equipment as start up material.

If interested, please call me at 784-8388. Please leave your name and number and I will call you back. Thank you and keep up the good work! I do miss the longer version of the column. – No Name, Lewiston.
