When it comes to running a successful service industry business, or any business for that matter, it is important to know the necessary ingredients for success. Obviously, there is no one formula for a successful business or franchise, but there are certain characteristics that seem to be prevalent among a lot of the more successful ones. One of the biggest factors is the location. This is why you should be very selective about commercial real estate. Of course, the perfect location is not a universal thing. For every business and every type of business there is a different kind of location that is best. In the case of service industry businesses, the best options tend to be places that are heavily trafficked. Of course, the more heavily trafficked an area is, the more expensive the real estate, both rental and otherwise, will be. In order to be successful, you have to weigh the quality of the location against the cost of the rent. If you can make the payments and still make good profits, then the location is probably worth renting or purchasing. On the other hand, if the rent is so high that it prevents you from being able to make money there, you, obviously, should not select that location. Similarly, even if a location is perfect in every other way, it can be a bad choice if there is too much competition, already. Some amount of competition in your area is okay, but if there are too many other businesses providing more or less the same goods and services as you, it can be hard to attract enough customers. There are some exceptions, sometimes, in the cases of restaurants, there may be many in one area. It is best if they serve very different cuisine, though. If the food and atmosphere is too similar among all the restaurants in the immediate area, it will be bad for your business. In short, when looking for restaurant property for lease, you should not be too wary of competition, but you should remain aware of your competitors, nonetheless. With restaurants, as with other businesses, you need to be sure that the revenue you bring in always far outweighs the payments. Of course, it is a very delicate balance to achieve. You need to be sure that your location is good enough to attract a steady stream of customers, on a daily basis, but it also needs to be fairly affordable. The only way to pay for a very expensive location is to either increase prices or cut costs somehow. Unfortunately, when it comes to food, cutting costs often means cutting quality. The best way to go about getting a good property for a good price is to take the time to do the necessary research. Find out if the property you are considering investing in will be as profitable as you think it will. You can conduct research on similar businesses in the area. Finding a good deal on commercial property for lease is not impossible if you are a wise investor.
The local country club in our community is searching for some professional carpet stain removal services, and is planning to write and put out a request for proposals for the contract. The entire building has carpet, some of the rooms are wall to wall carpeting, and others are carpeted with large oriental and antique rugs. The provider of the carpet stain removal and cleaning services is going to need to be a company that can deal with both types of carpets, and they each require different types of cleaning methods to be used. It is not always an easy job, cleaning the carpets at the country club. This is why the country club has planned to put out a request for proposals and find a suitable contractor who will be willing to sign a contract and take on the services. The effort is large for this particular space, and there have been several different cleaning companies that have gone through the process, only to be unable to meet the demand for their services. The country club is almost always full, and they host several very large events throughout the year. There is a lot of wear and tear that happens on their carpets, and especially the oriental carpets are going to need some extra care from the winner of the proposal bid. The carpet stain removal service is going to be the most important and the most commonly necessary. This is needed in the rooms with the oriental heirloom rugs after nearly every single event that happens at the country club. When there is a full house and a bar service included in the event, it can be difficult for people to ensure that none of their drinks or food drops to the floor. But there is always a little bumping into each other, and the servers can’t keep everything off the ground. And so the next morning, it is always necessary to have a company come in who is well versed and experienced in cleaning carpets and dealing with upholstery and oriental heirloom rugs. They must be attended to right away for the stain not to set, and so the country club is going to need someone who has signed a contract and will always be there at the ready, prepared to do some carpet stain removal services after every event that they hold. The problems with the rugs maintaining their clean is even worse in the summer, because it seems that people are much more interested in using the country club when the weather is nice, and that means that they use the deck, patio, and gardens much more than any other time of the year. This always ends up in dirt and mud being tracked through the great rooms of the country club, and this also must be attended to as soon as possible after the rooms are cleared if the rugs are to remain in the best shape possible. And the country club must have spotless and perfect looking rooms.
Your bedroom is meant to be your haven, a place where you lie down at the end of a long day and let your worries drift away. Hence, keeping your bedroom clean should be one of the most important cleaning priorities in your home. You spend at least eight hours a day in this room sleeping, getting dressed and relaxing.
So if your bedroom has dusty ceilings, soiled carpets and unchanged beddings, then you are creating a breeding ground for dust mites. This may create all kinds of health problems for you, including allergies and bronchitis. You may also tend to turn your rooms turn into storage areas where you dare not let anyone enter because of its mess.
Thus, it is important for you to learn how to clean your room efficiently and easily.
First, gather all the cleaning tools and materials you need such as broom, vacuum with attachment, boxes, containers, mop, tile cleaning tools, dust mop and cloths, mild cleansers, laundry products, mirror cleaner and window cleaner.
As a standard rule, when cleaning any room, you always want to start from the top. For instance, if you clean the ceiling fan, and dust falls on a table, then you can clean the table, and the dust will fall on the floor. When you vacuum the floor, the dust is gone. So never make the mistake of vacuuming a room and saving the ceiling fan for last.
Below are some easy steps in cleaning your bedroom.
- Grab all the cleaning tools need as mentioned above.
- Collect all dirty clothing and put in a container.
- Gather all clean clothes. Refold or re-hang them properly.
- Take down draperies and curtains to wash or have cleaned according to the directions.
- Dust down ceilings, corners, and windows of the room. Include upholstery cleaning, too.
- Put all trashes in the trash can.
- Pick up and arrange all misplaced items on the floor, desk, and bed.
- Dust down and clean all furniture, fixtures and appliances. These include all accent lamps, ceiling fans, dressers, chests and nightstands.
- Sweep, mop and vacuum. Make sure you do some carpet cleaning, too.
- Make the bed.
It is advised that you either do the closets first or save them for last. Do not attempt to get started decluttering in the middle of cleaning the room. You will definitely get distracted and end up with nothing done.
If you have a few minutes and energy after vacuuming and making the bed, check your containers or baskets and place the items in it in their proper areas. Do not let yourself leave the miscellaneous baskets unattended for too long. This will make the contents pile up, spill over, and lead to more mess.
You should also get rid of anything perishable that has already perished. Get a trash bag and throw out or donate anything that does not seem to be of use to you. Ditch old magazines, books, clothes, and other unnecessary fixtures. Do not just simply move them from one spot to another because this will result in more clutter.
Lastly, do not allow yourself become distracted by the things you are putting away. You might find a photo album you have not seen in a long time. Do not get your time consumed by looking at it while you are cleaning. Put it aside, you may make it a part of the reward you will give yourself after you have finished cleaning.
Years ago, two doctors were working in the emergency room. As seems apparent enough from the name, the emergency room is supposed to be a place that is solely dedicated to patients with pressing, time-sensitive medical needs, thus, an emergency. After years of noting the inefficiencies of the emergency room and empathizing with those patients that had to suspend the urgency of their medical issues, they set off on their own to start a clinic that they could run the way that they wanted to. Urgent Care Extra in Las Vegas is a walk-in clinic started by those two doctors, and it puts special emphasis and care into making sure that people are immediately given the care that they need. But the story that was just told begins as one about the doctors, but it ends as a story about the nurses and staff that make the whole operation run. Of course, a clinic such as Urgent Care Extra relies on the expertise of the doctors, but every hospital and clinic has doctors. It is the combination of the expert doctors at Urgent Care Extra in Las Vegas, the nurses, and the administrative staff that makes this clinic unique. The staff is the backbone of Urgent Care Extra. Urgent Care Extra has built convenience and speediness into the structure of the clinic’s model. They are open early and late so that people with realistic schedules do not have to take off work in order to receive medical attention. It is hard enough to miss work because of illness. The loss of work (and thus income) is exacerbated when you have to miss work just so that you can get better. Further, Urgent Care Extra in Las Vegas is a walk-in clinic that allows anyone to be seen upon arrival. There is no appointment necessary. You can, of course, schedule an appointment if you should choose to, but it is not needed, just like the emergency room. But then what makes Urgent Care Extra different than the emergency room? What makes it different is the staff. Unlike the emergency room, where you are supposed to just walk in and be seen in theory, Urgent Care Extra makes sure that you are seen in practice. This only works with the dedicated, friendly nurses and administrative staff that work quickly and efficiently. This personal dedication in concert with the structural elements that aid speediness and efficiency, Urgent Care Extra makes sure that you are seen quickly, treated, and sent back to work in no time. Another difference from emergency rooms that lends credence to the staff is the scope of medical treatments available. The staff is quick and friendly but also extremely competent. Unlike the emergency room, Urgent Care Extra treats a wide scope of ailments, and this even includes wellness counseling. All of these things make one reassess their game plan for when an accident happens. Now, Urgent Care Extra seems like the natural choice because the staff and nurses do such an excellent job of getting you in the office and on with your life.
One of the benefits that are come out of digital technology and its impact upon marketing for different small businesses is that creates an opportunity for more industry specific marketing strategies. In the days when your brand was confined to a more limited demographic or marketing medium, it was harder to market your brand in such a way that you were able to appeal to both those experts in the field, such as suppliers, and general audiences that did not come equipped with technical knowledge, like those that actually had their pipes fixed. If it were just me, as a laymen, I would take the advice of a plumber because I know little to nothing about plumbing. If I were a pipe supplier, I am not going to be compelled by the types of advertisements that work for general audiences. So what is the balance between these two types of audiences that both patronize your plumbing business? Or it is a balance? Do you need to be taking up two wholly different strategies at once? Well, when you hire a digital marketing company that can specialize in plumbing marketing, you can take up this last suggestion: hedge all of your bets and do it all at once. There is a marketing strategy for everyone. SEO for plumbers is a great way to specialize your brand and your marketing strategy. The basic concept of search engine optimization is intuitive enough. You are able to increase your web presence by associating particular oft-cited words with your website. When this happens, it means that your website appears in search engines more regularly, increasing the odds that people see your website. One of the strategies that separate good SEO companies from the others, however, is the amount of attention that is applied to the keyword selection. You are able to narrow down your brand and your demographic by selecting particular keywords for plumber SEO. If you are a plumber in Denver, you want to increase your web presence in general. But really, you want to increase your web presence in Denver more than you want to increase it in Boston. SEO is an excellent example of how you can appeal to general audiences but, even though it is general, it can still be specificity within generality. But what about those technical customers aforementioned, like the suppliers. That is where your can couple your SEO strategy with plumber web design. With plumber web design, you can construct your website in such a way that appeals to industry experts. This seems to be one of the challenges for marketing in specific industries. You do not want to talk above those that might actually hire you, but you do not want to appear as if you do not understand the intricacies of your business and industry. This is one of the places that social media branding can also come into place, because you can make temporary and micro-brands. The point is that no matter what you need, digital marketing is so flexible that you can do almost anything.
ALIO Industries, a leader in precision nano robotics, is based in our bustling metropolis of metro-Denver or more specifically Wheat Ridge, Colorado. As a pioneer in their industry, we Denver natives are proud to say they call this part of our country home. WIth their cutting edge and pioneering research and technology they provide not only Colorado, and not only the United States with the latest devices and developments, but they also connect with a region entirely outside of North America, nay the western hemisphere! ALIO industries has painstakingly stretched their metaphorical legs over the Atlantic Ocean into Germany and China! They even have distribution locations in Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Italy and right back to the western hemisphere by hitting in South America.
A company with arms as wide spread as this must be reputable! I know I would trust this brand in looking at how wide their reach is. ALIO industries with it’s cutting edge precision motion systems robotics offers to the world its detailed research and extraordinary products that act as a base for so many others when it comes to motion control systems.
Not only does the website show it’s reach in terms of the different distribution locations around the globe, but ALIO’s True Nano Precision Motion Control Systems are a part of the International Society for Optical Engineering or SPIE which is the international society for optics and photonics. This society provides greater accessibility to research through publications and other forms of education. They also promote agency collaboration through their industry resources and career centers.
ALIO industries is also a part of CPIA or Colorado Photonics Industry Association which is a non-profit organization that provides greater accessibility to specifically the industries that deal in the photonics work in Colorado. They deal with promoting, publicizing, and strengthening the photonics industry in Colorado.
But ALIO industries doesn’t stop there. Their reputability continues to be widespread and reach many more organizations who are proud to have them as a part of their team, organization or society. ALIO industries is a part of the American Society for Precision Engineering which is another non-profit organization that supports the education, research and implementation of precision engineering.
And last but most certainly not least, ALIO industries is a part of the EUSPEN of the European Society for Precision Engineering and Nanotechnology. They give companies such as ALIO industries the ability to showcase their latest research and findings so that other like-minded companies can learn from each other and hopefully build upon each other. They also encourage education and research on the topics of precision engineering and also promote getting the word out to anyone who will listen about what good work precision engineering is doing.
Knowing that ALIO industries with it’s cutting edge motion systems is a major part of SPIE, CPIA, American Society for Precision Engineering and EUSPEN just solidifies the already pervasive fact that the work our humble Colorado company is doing permeates beyond the Rocky Mountains and over our national borders into other countries and continents.
In doing a brief amount of research about Schmidt Rubin guns on Wikipedia, I found that they may not be in production currently and as a result they could be considered a collector’s item. I am not sure how many people locally are interested in collecting the guns, but I do know that right now there are a number of different collectors in other parts of the state that would be very interested in owning one of the original Schmidt Rubin pieces. Gun ownership in Colorado and in the United States is really tricky right now. I am not sure if guns should be owned, but there are many different laws that protect the people that own them and their rights to carry them around. It seems to me that this conversation is driven by the lobby of gun activists. I am not sure if that is true, but with so many laws begin passed that just open up the opportunity to carry guns anywhere, I suspect that many of these people did not actually advocate for the gun freedom. Nevertheless, I have to be honest here that I do not actually know anything about guns or the rights of gun owners. I only have my opinion, conceptually, about guns and therefore do not have a leg to stand on when it comes to discussing guns and their place in the United States. I am still about to talk about hunting and what that means for open spaces. Open spaces are something that I value a lot because it means that there are many different places that people can go to enjoy the outdoors. I know that I would love to be able to get away more than I do and I recently received a promotion, so I do think that I will soon have the opportunity to go and check things out more. Nevertheless, hunters place a big role in making sure that we can continue to have open spaces. There is a certain relations between the types of people that would own a K31 Swiss handgun and the people that are vegan. They may not want to acknowledge this relationship but it stands as both of these groups want to have the ability to go outside and enjoy the great outdoors. When you look at the greatest conservationist in the history of the United States, you would point to Teddy Roosevelt who was also a big game hunter. It is because of his willingness to go outside and preserve the places that he enjoyed that we have so many national parks and state parks. He really set the trend and that was largely because he wanted to go hunting. He also wanted to make sure that people could continue to enjoy that into the future. That is why we now have specially reserved areas where people can take their M10 AKs to go shooting and we have areas where those guns are not allowed so that other people can enjoy the areas as well.
In order to install a central air conditioner, one recommendation is to hire a professional company. Air conditioner repairs can be costly and unfortunate, especially when the system is brand new. Here are some of the precautionary steps the specialist will take:
Quick Access – for the sake of future furnace repairs and maintenance, the person installing the system should be mindful that sufficient access be given to reach the system. Failure to do so will be costly in the long run, as a construction contractor may be needed to cut in between the space and seal it off again.
The Methodology – of condensing, cooling and heating the air and home throughout takes years of study and practice to master. The air condition specialist will want to ensure that there is no hazard of carbon monoxide forming when the home’s heater is on. Even so, a carbon monoxide alarm is recommended in all homes.
With a central air heating and cooling system, there should be enough ducts ran throughout each room, in addition to a point of escape for circulated air to reach the outside of the home.
Insulation – improper insulation can make the home too hot or too cold in the summer and winter time. During milder seasons, this may not be noticed at all. One other concern with bad insulation is the extra energy costs, as the system works harder when air escapes prematurely. During annual maintenance requests, be sure to make a note that the insulation should be checked – especially in hard to reach places like the roof.
Special Locations – some parts of the air conditioning system will need to be strategically placed. As an example, the thermostats will usually be accessible at arm’s length for adults and on the interior of the home – especially away for sources of heat or cold – that may compromise accurate readings. This includes in the doorways and windows.
When choosing a new type of HVAC system, consider those that can be powered by solar energy. If this isn’t within your budget just yet, consider Energy Star appliances that have impressive performance ratings, and low energy outputs. You may also be able to secure a tax credit when these systems are purchased.
As scores of specialists advertise their skills where HVAC systems are concerned, there are direct steps you can take to ensure the right professional is hired. Check how long the expert has been in business and read about local client reviews from popular sites like the Yellow Pages or the BBB for instance. You can also check the business’ ratings on these same sites. In addition, ensure that the company is licensed and insured. These numbers are typically displayed on the company vehicles, websites and business cards. Potential clients can furthermore check these credentials on local government sites, where all local businesses are required to be registered.
Once you’ve been satisfied with the service, you can pay the compliments forward with a good review about the company – or even a referral to a friend or neighbor.

It was cold outside, I pulled up in my truck a few minutes ago and got lost in myself thinking about working construction on a concrete crew when I was a kid. I could see the vapor of the worker’s breath appearing and reappearing at frequent intervals in the cold morning air as the sun rose in the mid-morning sky. I remembered a time when I felt the cold air in my lungs on mornings like this and I was happy that those days were in my past. I worked in my truck a lot, I usually arrived a week or two before construction was complete so I could effectively get our ducks in a row for the grand opening of the restaurant. It was my job to do most of the hiring and get the place up and running smoothly so we could hand over operational control of the restaurant to the franchisee. It was my immediate concern to make sure that the kitchen equipment and appliances were all installed properly without incurring any damage in the process. The email said that it all was supposed to arrive before noon today so I was there to supervise the process when it did, I was just handling some other things in the meantime. We used a guest pager system to alert our customers when their table was ready and I liked to have it for training before we opened and I wasn’t sure if I’d placed the order yet. I went through my email looking for something from the pager warehouse, like a confirmation or an invoice or something. I couldn’t find it so I decided to just give them a call and find out what was going on.
I called in and a helpful young lady answered the phone and asked me what she could help me with. I introduced myself and told her the name of the company I worked for and asked if she had any current orders pending for us. She looked it up and told me that nothing had been ordered or sent for several months, and that the last order was a paging system and it was sent to Omaha. That made sense, the last restaurant we built was in Omaha, I told her that we needed another one and that I’d forgotten to place the order. She said that was fine and she’d be able to get it out to us within the week and I thanked her and told her to send me the invoice so I could pay for it and get it shipped as soon as possible. She said that she already did and the invoice should be in my email, I refreshed my email and confirmed that it was there and thanked her. It was important to be able to train using the guest pagers so that the servers and hostesses had some familiarity with them by the time we opened for business in less than a month. I had to hire and train 30 employees in the meantime so the general manager, the assistant manager and I had our work cut out for us.
I have been very fortunate to be surrounded by people that have a lot of money through my first twenty five years on this planet. I guess that I would consider myself to come from affluence. My parents were always able to take care of me and I was an only child which definitely made the situation a little bit easier on them financially. This allowed for me to take part in a number of sports and activities outside of school that may have been financially difficult if I had more brothers and sisters. Nevertheless, i will be working hard to make sure that I am able to provide for people into the future. That is something that is very important to me and I will be working to make sure that I can do so. Nevertheless, through my time growing up, I was friends with a kid named Ritchie. Ritchie was actually very rich, so it was appropriate that there was a movie called Ritchie Rich when I was growing up as well. When we would have a soccer team get together, it would always be at his house because his family had a home theater system. They also had the ability to do pay per view, which I thought was absolutely nuts. If my parents caught me trying to order a movie, any movie, it could have been the flyer toaster movie, for $20, they would have sold me. Nevertheless, this was not an issue for Ritchie’s family and we loved to be able to watch scary movies on a television that was taller than we were. It was also pretty cool because his basement, in addition to the pool tables, had a home audio system that would rival those of the top record companies’ executives. The thing that I really enjoyed about it was that it allowed for the soccer team to relax and enjoy all of the games. It was like going to an amusement park without having to spend money on expensive drinks and bad food. It was also cool because it was really close to my house. I only lived two neighborhoods away. That meant that if I wanted to come over and check out their home theater I could. It definitely made the experience of growing up in a town that did not have much to do for younger kids a great experience. It is unfortunate that I am no longer in contact with Ritchie. He ended up not going to my high school, so I rarely got the opportunity to see him. I also have fallen out of contact with everyone else on the team, but I have to imagine that that is something that happens as you grow up. Fortunately, now, we have Facebook, so I can stalk them to see what they are up to now. It’s a pretty good deal and definitely something that I will do as soon as I am done writing. I’m looking forward to it now.
As with any homes in areas that have a high level of humidity in the summer, the homes in Chicago need to be vigilant about the potential for water damage. Water damage in these sorts of areas can be caused by a variety of different factors with the major reasons being broken pipes or basement flooding. These can happen either due to rain or the presence of a large body of water that is nearby. The problems with this is that due to the high level of moisture in the air, it would be incredibly difficult for the area to dry and this could have long term implications for the state of the area and for the well being of the house. I know that if it was my house, the first thing that I would try to do is dry out the area and then I would think about trying to remove all of the superfluous pieces that may be keeping the area from getting dry. I realize that this is a difficult thing to accomplish at times, but I think that there are lots of options out there when it comes to drying an area. Nevertheless, that is why there are experts in the field of water damage restoration. They can make your home or apartment feel as if nothing happened due to an efficient and thorough process that they employ to make sure that the area is suited for success. Success being that the air is no longer wet and that additional layers such as rugs or carpet can be put on top of the area to make it seem like a place that is hospitable again. Nevertheless, I guess that this is why I am thankful that I live on the top floor of my apartment building. It means that I do not really have to worry about the breaking of pipes because all of that is below me. Of course, water damage of any kind in Chicago is something to worry about – still it worries me less because it would all be below me. (Knock on wood) I do hope that this is not something that either I or any of my friends have to deal with any time soon. It would be such a pain in the butt to have to deal with a broken water pipe on top of all of the daily things that people have to do. I know that I would be more willing to invest in procedures to limit the potential for something like this to happen because it would save money in the long run. It is so much cheaper for a house to be proactive about potential water damage in Chicago then letting something happen and then having to pay whatever costs that may come up to fix the damage. Nevertheless, I hope that I don’t have to learn about either for a long time. That would be great for me, my wallet, and my lifestyle to know that I won’t have to deal with water damage at home.
Gaming had always been my passion. It all started with a N-64 as a kid. Classic, I know. Then from Sega to X-box to PlayStation to online gaming, I could not get enough! It was a huge turning point in my social life as a teenager when I got into participating in “LARPING” aka life action role playing. I was excited to design my own costumes, and really it was my first interaction with girls. My parents were also so excited to see me leave the house they completely funded all of my costume and transportation needs. My parents always said that gaming was just a phase and eventually I would have to grow out of it and get a real job. Well, I am not sure if I subconsciously set out to prove them wrong, but I am now the proud owner of my own game store.
My vision was to provide a center for community to allow local gamers to get out of their dark sunless dwellings and interact with other like-minded fellow gaming enthusiasts. Nerds, geeks, other names that are often frequented by our kind. I want to create a store that was unlike no other. I started with LED panels checkered in the roof to create a surreal effect. I could even program them to different things, make it look like it was raining, starry, sunny! I could make them look psychedelic or simple. All with my computer! I had lots of people even request to submit ideas to me! Next I used LED screens in the front window to play enticing scenes and advertise all I offered in my shop. My shop is not only one where you can buy your latest favorite game, find your desired multiple sided dice, or collect all of your favorite playing cars. No, my shop is one where you can come meet other gamers during social events!
In the back of the store is a wide empty space that can be used for a plethora of options! I have led screen along the side walls that can help set the mood for whatever it is I desire. If we are having a serious debate over the latest gaming I will set the lights a darker more mellow tone. Along the back wall is actually an LED wall! These combined make it great for LARPING! I have it even set up to where one person can bring their laptop and control what back ground is displayed to really help everyone get into character! And when the story changes, the background can to or the kids can create their own virtual dragon! It has really brought together so many kids from the community and offers them a safe place to interact and share their interest and there hobbies! Many parents are skeptical at first, but they are all invited to stay with their kids if they desire, which many of the kids are unhappy about initially. They will usually stay for a session or two and eventually get to know other kids and their parents and feel comfortable once they get to know the community. All around business has boomed and I am grateful to offer such a space for the kids, because I know I would have loved such a place when I was growing up! I guess one could compare it to a futuristic arcade!
I have heard about some very exciting news regarding the legal status of marijuana sales in Colorado. I’ve known for a while that Colorado permits the sale of marijuana for medicinal purposes, but starting this year it is now legal to buy and sell marijuana for recreational purposes. This is very exciting news because I know that this is going to cause the price of cannabis to drop to more reasonable levels. In the past, people would have to go through dealers who would charge exorbitant fees to offset the level of risk that they were taking on by being a weed dealer. Now that one can simply buy marijuana from a legitimate vendor, there are sure to be plenty of weed and cannabis deals that consumers can take advantage of. This is basic economics at work; as the supply and number of vendors increases, the prices will drop when vendors begin to compete with each other for customers. There are going to be plenty of ways in which this competition will play out. For example, some companies are going to do their best to provide the highest quality product. They will build their business on the notion that they have the most exquisite marijuana with high THC content. Connoisseurs of cannabis will be drawn to these establishments for the finest product that they can find. Other businesses will try to attract a wider swath of customers by offering cannabis coupons and deals that will undercut the prices of other businesses. The quality of their product might not be as important as the price to some consumers, so they will fill this niche successfully. I am personally very excited about the idea of recreational marijuana coupons and deals, as it signifies the legitimacy of the business. Coupons are commonly used for all manner of products, and having coupons for cannabis makes it seem like just another run of the mill product.
I think that the most exciting thing about marijuana reform laws in Colorado is going to be how the tax situation pans out. Colorado is going to make a ton of money off the taxation of marijuana sales. They are taking this drug off of the black market and funneling this lucrative business into tax dollars which will generate so many benefits for the state. I won’t be surprised to see that Colorado will be able to fund all sorts of services for the state, such as improved roads, schools, and other public works projects. When other states see the benefits that it brings to Colorado, they are sure to follow suit and pass their own drug reform laws. Another great thing about this law is that there are going to be less people incarcerated for using this relatively harmless product. With less people in jail, the tax burden of supporting prison populations is going to be lightened on the citizens of Colorado. Also, law enforcement in the state will be able to focus on crimes that actually affect society, rather than busting harmless pot smokers.
I was just told by my doctor that I need to go see a hand surgeon who is a specialist in carpal tunnel, or trigger finger problems. I already knew that I was having a problem that was brought on my the use of one particular finger when I’m typing, but I didn’t realize that it was actually carpal tunnel. I do a job that requires a lot of typing through out the day, and there is really no way that I can take any time off at all. I may have some insurance that would cover the time off, but the office would need to hire someone to take my place while I’m out, and that means that I likely would not have a job there when I get back from the surgery recovery. And of course, this is what all my experience is in, and that means that I won’t be able to find a job doing anything different, so I will always be using that trigger finger to get the job done. And that means that even if I do go ahead and get the carpal tunnel surgery, after I recover and go back to work, what is to say that the pain won’t eventually come back because I’ll be doing the exact same kind of work that had me here in pain in the first place. So while I will go see the hand surgeon for sure, I’m not really sure that I will be able to fully carry out any course of action that they may have for me, which would include carpal tunnel surgery or any other kind of surgery. I am actually really hoping that he can just give me some type of brace that will hold my fingers solid and not let them bend or be moved, and then I can figure out how to type around the brace and I can then just learn how to type without moving my trigger finger. That may sound a big ridiculous, but I don’t really see that I have very many other options. I can’t take time off work for trigger finger surgery, and I can’t take the time off for the recovery that is required to get better from the surgery. And even if I was able to go that long without working, and my job still was there for me when I got back, I would never be able to type up to the required minimum speeds after the surgery, because I would only end up back in the same place with the same kind of pain again. However, the pain is worse than trying to do something about it. So I’ll go see the surgeon that my doctor recommended, and I’ll see what they have to say. But I just don’t see how I can fix this and get it taken care of, I really don’t. I may need to change careers or go back to school, or something else that is equally as drastic as that.
I am not an Apple fan boy. But, because I edit video, I use Apple products. When I first got into editing over a decade ago, I started using Apple products and I haven’t looked back since. I have owned several Mac Book Pros and I recently invested in an iMac. I like Apple although there are times when I think that their products are over priced. But, when I work with a friend that uses a PC, I am thankful that I don’t have to worry about the headaches that PCs seem to be. One of the things I appreciate is that there are no viruses with Apples. I also like that the software that runs on Apple has to go through a stringent process of testing to make sure it isn’t buggy. When I try to look at my email on a friends PC, I am often perplexed by how counter intuitive the design of the machine is. Despite all this, like I said before, I am not an Apple fan boy. Recently, there was a major upgrade to the editing software that I use called Final Cut Pro X. However, the only way to upgrade the software was to also upgrade the computer’s operating system. The new operating was free, for which I was thankful. The new operating system was called Maverick’s named after a wave that breaks off the coast of Northern California. When I updated my operating system to Maverick’s, my computer stopped working. One of the reasons that I liked Apple was because I had never need to call IT support for any of my machines. I tried the guys at Apple’s 800 number. I guess I hate to be put on hold. So I made an appointment with the Genius bar at the Apple store. It turned out the the “Genius” bar was a contradiction. The amount of brain power between the three people behind the bar wouldn’t be considered genius if they were able to summon the whole of all of their intelligence and combine it in the brain of a dog. Needing my computer for work, I tried another option. I called an independent computer support company called the Rocky Mountain Technical Team. That was the best thing that I had done all day long. While you hear about warnings that technicians that aren’t certified by Apple might void your Apple Care if they work on your computer, I knew that there was no way that this could pass the legal system in the United States. One of the nicest things about the Rocky Mountain Technical Team is that they came to my home office. The didn’t even give me a huge appointment window. They said 3 o’clock on Wednesday, and they were there at 3. It took the technician about 15 minutes to figure out the problem and fix it. He said it had something to do with sharing permissions in Java. I don’t know how he did it, but it was quick and painless.
I got in my car to make the drive up to Evergreen, I was about to retire and my wife and I were in the middle of making our dream come true. We hit a rough patch in our marriage over 10 years ago, so we went and saw a counselor about it so we could figure out a way through it. The counselor asked us about the how it used to be, way back when we got together originally and were madly in love with one another. We talked about it and started the process of regaining what we’d lost over the years by coming together and talking about our on-going dreams and goals, just like we used to. We each put together a list over the course of a couple weeks and then we exchanged our lists to see if there was a common thread. I was surprised to see that we had several things on our list in common, including traveling and building a house in the mountains. We used to talk about traveling and then moving to the mountains later in life but at some point, we lost sight of all of that as we let life drive a stake between us. This exercise helped us start dreaming all over again and then we were able to start setting mutual goals together. In the last two years, since our counseling sessions, we’ve traveled to Greece, Japan and all sorts of different places in the US. We’d recently begun making our dream of moving to the mountains a reality as well when we bought some land and designed our own custom home.
I forgot about how good of a team my wife and I made together, we worked extremely well with one another and we rarely fought about our disagreements. There were a lot of decisions to be made when it came down to designing the house but we had a common vision so it was only the details that provided any sort of challenge. For example, we bought land in the Rocky Mountains so we both felt that it was appropriate to use as much wood in the construction and finishings as possible, thus, installing hardwood floors was a given. I really liked the idea of building the deck out of pine, since that is what we were surrounded by but I felt differently about the front porch. I thought that it would be a good idea to do a solid, concrete patio on the front porch but my wife said that sounded boring. She didn’t know what they were able to do with decorative concrete these days but when I showed her how endless the possibilities were, she told me that I could do whatever I wanted as long as it didn’t look like concrete. My idea was to encase the surface of the concrete with some rough pine boards so that it would take on the texture of the wood as the concrete dried against it. The contractor said that was definitely doable and a good choice.

If you are looking for proof that not all Urgent Care centers in Dobson are created equal, I suggest you go visit the Urgent Care center downtown and see for yourself what excellence in patient care looks like. My experience with them may have been brief, but it was positive and it left a lasting impression on me. An impression so big I advocate on their behalf by suggesting to anyone in need of emergency or even non-emergency medical care to go there. I went there on a total whim one day when I wasn’t feeling well and it turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life.
It was a really cold day in early December when the weather had dropped to below freezing. At the time I had been battling a fever and chills back and forth for a few days, I was nauseous and achy and miserable. Finally after another weekend lost to the couch I decided I had had enough and it was time to see a doctor. I don’t have a family doctor so I couldn’t call in to make an appointment. I tried over a dozen doctors in the area and only two of them were even accepting patients and they were booked up for the rest of the month. It was on a random drive to the drugstore to buy cold medicine that I even spotted the Urgent Care center in Dobson on the other side of the shopping center. Full disclosure, I know nothing of the health care industry or what to expect when going to an urgent care center or the emergency room. I’m thankful to have lived a generally healthy lifestyle so far that has let me avoid the hospital or visits to the ER, but on the other hand I can be a bit naive about what I am getting myself into. Since I was insured though, I figured I would give it a shot.
I didn’t know if the urgent care center behaved like a doctors office in that you had to have an appointment or a specific doctor that you saw there so I was a bit hesitant. However when I entered the clinic I was greeted by the nurse at the front desk and she answered all of my questions right then and there. She said that they didn’t require appointments but if you wanted to make one you could and they would see you faster. However as I glanced around I saw that there was nobody waiting to be seen and figured that being a walk-in patient was every bit as efficient. I only had to wait about five minutes until the doctor came back into my testing room. We had some good conversation about his practice and how he came to be a doctor at there. He said that he loved the philosophy they have at the Urgent Care center in Dobson and that is simply to put the patient first. No matter what they strive to take care of your needs.
Colorado residents know (or at least they ought to know) that radon is a serious issue for homeowners. Radon is a noxious, radioactive gas that is common in Colorado but in Denver, in particular. It comes from the ground, so this means that basements can read particularly high radon levels. Left unaddressed, radon can have some pretty nasty health repercussions. It is terrible for the lungs, and it is know to strongly contribute to lung cancer. Smokers are particularly susceptible to the risk of lung cancer from radon. With radon reduction, homeowners can significantly reduce the radon levels in their home, which is all that is necessary. Especially in Denver and the rest of the Colorado area, it is normal to have some radon in your homes. A little radon is normal and innocuous. The problem is when there is sustained exposure to high levels of radon. Okay. So you all the radon inspector, he or she comes to the house, determines that there are high levels of radon in the home, does the radon mitigation procedure, and then you are entirely safe, right? Maybe not. Radon is notorious for entering the water supply. Water-borne radon is particularly dangerous when it comes to lung cancer. You could be exposed to radon through your water and not even know it. So it is not enough to just get radon abatement treatments for the air without addressing the water supply. Radon tends to enter the home through cracks in the foundation, considering that it comes in through the ground. But this means that it is also able to entering the plumbing systems. While you can install air purification systems for radon that is in the air in your home, you may not have the same quick fix when it comes to your water supply. Make sure that you contact your radon specialist as soon as possible if you have not ensured that your water is radon-free. Radon is a serious problem in Denver and the rest of Colorado, but some people are still unaware of what it is, how it affects human health, and how humans come to be exposed to it. Sometimes, I find that this is the case most often with people who have lived in Denver all of their lives. They just take for granted all of the things that go into owning a home. They recall when their parents would have someone come to house to test for radon but are unclear about all of the details. The water source is a pointed example of people not knowing enough about the dangers of radon. If you think that it is enough to just get the air in your basement checked for radon, think again. The air you breathe and the water your use are so basic and fundamental to your life that you want to make sure that both are pure and safe. Get your water supply checked for radon today and ensure that your drinking water is not increasing the risk of lung cancer.
