Unique Landscape Design

Posted in Gardening on January 13th, 2015

Today, most homeowners understand the importance of proper landscaping. Not only will it benefit the home’s overall value with improved curb appeal but it will also create added function and personality for homeowners.

Flower beds and natural areas are excellent options for homeowners who want a unique form of landscaping. These areas can be installed professionally but are also easy to complete on their own. By installing various plants that the homeowner desires and watering properly, the area will be lush and appealing. However, homeowners must ensure there is a proper base to hold in moisture and fill up any spaces that are open.

Many homeowners will use mulch for their landscaping beds. This is a great option but there are homeowners who will choose a more durable and maintenance free option such as pea gravel. These mall pebbles look very appealing up against the landscaping elements and require no maintenance. With an affordable price, it is easy to see why it is becoming a popular choice in landscape design.

No Carbon Required

I purchased several NCR sets online to use for my snowplowing business and I was offered free shipping. When my shipment arrived, I was surprised that there was no carbon required, unlike the other sets that I have used in the past.

The website that I ordered from was easy to navigate which made my shopping experience extremely pleasurable. The also offered some extras that I was interested in such as the drilled holes, perforation and the sequential numbering option.

I was sent PDF file by email and I had to verify that all of my information was accurate. I had to check for any spelling and grammar errors and make those corrections. They advised me to look it over very carefully because once I approve it that they are not liable for any of my mistakes. This is the online store that I will be purchasing my sets from in the future.

That Was Awkward

Posted in Relationships on November 13th, 2014

I’m a bit of an awkward person.

Last week I was staying in a nice hotel on South Beach, in Miami. One night I ventured to the pool. I swam, talked with a towel boy, tried not to watch a couple make out, and pondered whether or not I should really become a wedding makeup artist Manchester.

My hair still dripping a bit, I left the pool and made my way to the elevator. Of course I ended up riding alone with a really hot guy – I’m talking Edward Cullen hot – who was staying in the penthouse. You know that awkward silence when you’re in an elevator with a stranger? Yeah, I wasn’t having that. I broke the silence as proof of my awkwardness escaped through my lips.

“Crap, I’m dripping.” He looked at me strangely and responded.

“Pool?”

“Yeah.” And I walked out. I should have taken the stairs.

Old Garbage, New Life!

It was senior year and Sarah still had to fulfill her Art requirement. Painting seemed relatively interesting…that must be why it was full. Mixed-media it was.

The first day arrived. The class went by rather slowly and ended with an assignment to create a mythological being out of recycled or re-purposed materials. Sarah wondered where she would get any of that, she barely went out of her way to recycle a bottle.

That afternoon, she walked on the beach and collected sea glass like she always did. Sea glass! Couldn’t that be considered “re-purposed”? She picked up a piece and headed home to tap her collection. Some inspiration and just over an hour yielded something quite beautiful: a mermaid made of sea glass and twine. Recycled glass media became her trademark, and from that sprung a mission to re-purpose. Not only for her art, but for the environment too.

Broke Down After a Desert Party

Posted in Property on October 29th, 2014

It never is smart to cut across private property at night. It was late, but when my friends and I broke down at a desert party, our options were limited. We were miles from the freeway, so we had to trek through the dirt roadways, that eventually brought us to the government canals at the edge of the city. We were still miles from the main city lights, so we decided to cut across some barbwire fencing. This allowed us to cross a farm field, one that appeared to be mostly used for livestock, probably horses and cows. We made it almost a quarter mile across the field, but our luck had run out. My buddies and I heard the sound of a shotgun. We thought we were dead, especially when two of us were hit. As we ran, it became obvious that we had been shot with rock salt.
