Bridal Shower Extraordinaire

I can’t believe it. Gwen is getting married and she’s asked me to be her maid of honor! I’m so happy for her.

I’ve already started planning her bridal shower even though the wedding is over a year away. Yes, I’m a little bit bridal shower crazy. But who can blame me? This is my best friend we’re talking about.

Gwen deserves a really amazing bridal shower, so I’ve decided to do something a little unusual. I don’t want her to feel like any other bride. I want her to feel like the most beautiful bride in the world.

So, the first thing on the agenda will be going to a beauty salon where we will all get complete makeovers. There’s a really awesome wedding makeup artist Manchester at the salon near my office. I told her about my ideas for the shower and she’s really excited too. We’re going to try to come up with a movie theme to make it more fun too.

There’s so much to think about and plan when you’re a maid of honor. And this is only the beginning!

A Clean Source

I do not like dealing with any kind of water except that water that has been filtered in the best way and that is ready to be used. I do not like thinking about all of the diseases that water can hold and the way that it can negatively affect my life and the lives of my family members. I recently invested in water filtration media that is meant to help me out and to set me up with a clean source for all of my water needs. I am excited to use the device that I have purchased and to see all that it will do for me. I know that I am going to change my life by changing up the water that is available to me and that I put to use.

Inspired To Make A Change For The Better

I never really was into recycling until recently. However, that changed when I was reading an article about all of the benefits of recycling. I read about recycled glass media. I also read about how recycling can actually help people save money by conserving energy. This was when I was inspired to make a change. I told my family that I was going to start recycling, and I wanted them to join me. I explained the benefits of recycling to them, and I got them on board with it.

Not only do we recycle, but we are also living a more eco-friendly lifestyle. We use solar panels and have purchased Energy Star products for our home. We also drive less and take public transportation more. My family and I are now happier because we know we are doing all that we can to protect the environment.

Enjoyed Time At The Restaurant on New Years

Had a great time at the restaurant last weekend. It was more of party atmosphere than anything else. Our hostesses London were great. They brought us our food in a very timely manner. They were really fun and outgoing. When our group got there we saw that it was very crowded and noisy. People were out having a great time celebrating the New Year.

You would have thought that most people would have stayed home with the weather being so cold and snowy, but instead they decided that going out and having a few drinks and great food with friends was the way to spend the day.

You couldn’t blame them. The place was so friendly and fun. There was great food and drinks with great company. There was no place you would rather be than being inside hanging out by the fire.

Cool Rooms, More Productivity!

My aunt has her own small business. She makes and sells beautifully crafted items. She employs a small team of friends and they all work from a small garage apartment at her home.

I feel as though I’m walking into a sauna when I visit her workplace. The heat slaps me in the face as soon the door opens. I have tried to convince my aunt to invest in air conditioning Manchester for months. She has used large fans that simply circulate hot air. My aunt insists her budget will not allow her to invest in anything more as her business is still in its formative stages. I have advised her she can’t afford not to invest. I pointed out the productivity of her employees would be improved if their environment was more comfortable.

I think my aunt is finally ready to take my advice. She asked for a referral today.

How the Beach Came to the Rescue

When hurricane Sandy slammed into the Jersey Shore area in 2012, it left behind devastation and destruction that is still being felt a full year later. Businesses and homeowners have not recovered from the lose of their homes and stores, and funding has been slow to give the residents of the coastline the ability to get back to a normal life.

That is all changing with the help of silica sand sculptures. A recent charity event was held in the city of Point Pleasant where they attempted to get into the Guinness Book of Records for the largest sand sculpture. The charity event gained local and nationwide media coverage as people flocked to the beach to not only see some amazing artwork, but to give of their money to help all the victims of that devastating hurricane. The monies raised during the event went to help the local residents who lost everything.

Horror Fans Are Not so Creepy

I was always kind of creeped out by people who liked horror movies. What kind of mind does one have to call counting the number of “kills” in a film a hobby?

I became part of the event staff London for the Hudson Horror Show at the South Hills Mall in Poughkeepsie and found out. The event involved a few hundred of these horror fans sitting in a theater all day watching film prints of old horror movies. These people were well-behaved, respectful, and most of all they were fun people.

There were no altercations of any kind. There were no creepy guys harassing women. I realized that their enjoyment of the movies came more from the bad special effects and hammy acting rather than any sort of sadistic impulse.

I learned to get to know a little more about a certain topic before writing off an entire group of people.

Head of the Department

I work as the lead science teacher in my school division, and I am always looking for new ways to get kids excited about the field of science. This can be a daunting task, but I do try. I recently asked a few local scientists to come to my school and talk to the kids about their work, so the students have a better understanding of the different kinds of work scientists do.

We had a broad range of scientists speak to the kids. One was a weather researcher who brought some of his equipment with him to show the students. Another was a scientist employed by the hospital who studies contagious diseases and brought slides for the kids to see using microscopes. One scientist studies rocks and minerals and brought samples of cristobalite, fossils and space rocks for the kids to view. The day was an absolute success, and the kids enjoyed it.
