Advertiser Staff and News Services
If you need to soothe baby, consider some help from Dolly Parton. In "Hushabye Baby: Lullaby Renditions of Dolly Parton," a CD out today, Parton's songs are reworked into instrumental arrangements with acoustic country instruments, bells and chimes to create a "gently hip" album. Songs featured include "I Will Always Love You," "9 to 5," "Little Sparrow" and "Love is Like a Butterfly." The "Hushabye Baby" series includes renditions of the songs of Carrie Underwood, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline and Willie Nelson; www.hushabyebabymusic.com.

PETALS & BEANS MOVES TO ALA MOANA
Loyal Petals & Beans fans, never fear: After a decade in the airport area, the floral shop/ cafe has moved to Hokua, directly across from the Ala Moana Beach Park tennis courts. While ordering their creative floral arrangements, gift baskets, or dessert platters for Easter, you can indulge in their coffee drinks, smoothies and individual sweets. Not only do they use fresh-brewed coffee and real chocolate syrup in their coffee drinks, they offer chocolate as well as regular whipped cream ... or both, for those who can't decide. It's the ultimate sugar rush! They're open 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Mondays-Fridays, 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturdays, 1288 Ala Moana Blvd.; 836-0100, www.petalsandbeans.com.
