Sandblasting Our Brick Home

June 22nd, 2016

A few years ago my husband and I bought a brick house. The brickwork had been neglected for years and we wanted to spruce it up. We looked into a lot of different options that included painting the bricks. In the end, we decided to sand blast the surface and clean the bricks.

The contractor who did the job for us was a very nice guy. He explained the process and gave us an estimate of both the time and the cost. He was also very insistent on safety. We were glad to hear that as it is an important issue for us.

Our contractor recommended we stay elsewhere while our house was being sand blasted. He said he would be using silica sand in the process. If it is inhaled, it can cause health problems. Using this product in sand blasting makes the small, fast moving particles easy to inhale. We agreed and took a short vacation. We came home to a beautiful, new looking house.

Finally, A Blind Date That Ended Well

June 21st, 2016

I recently went on a blind date, my friend had pressured me until I had consented. We were supposed to meet at a quaint little coffee shop that was only a few minutes walk from my apartment. When the finally arrived I nervously sat sipping a double espresso when a handsome older man walked up to my table and asked if I was the person he was meeting. I nodded, suddenly mute. Conversation started slowly and eventually my date mentioned that he had seen me before, I instantly thought he was a stalker. He then said that he worked as a wedding violinist Manchester and saw me at the reception of my cousin’s wedding; not so creepy after all. In the end one blind date turned into more and now we are, officially, dating thanks to my pushy friend.

Like Yoga Without the Work!

March 27th, 2016

I like yoga and I like massages so my friend Emily suggested a thai massage Manchester as a birthday gift. Emily said to dress like I would for yoga and that I would be keeping my clothes on during the massage. When I arrived, my therapist introduced herself and explained just how this type of massage works. She would manipulate my body into different poses while using pressure to massage. Instead of a massage table, I would lie on a mat.

My therapist explained each pose in a soothing voice. I allowed her skillful hands and rhythmic pressure to do the work for me. The passivity gave my mind more opportunity to be calm and focused.

When my session was over, I was as energized as if I’d practiced yoga, but my mind was more relaxed. Emily’s gift is defintely one of the best presents I have ever received.

Clean H20 for Your Family

September 25th, 2015

Moving into a new home has always been my dream. A place where I could finally raise my kids and create a better environment for them. However, I never thought that when we moved into our new home that concerns would be raised about our drinking water. I mean the house was in great shape, and the neighbors never mentioned anything negative about the area when I spoke to them.

I remember my daughter getting ready for her bath when I heard a scream from the bathroom. I ran in to see what the problem was, and although it was not a reason for her to scream, there were a lot of particles of some type in her bathwater. I immediately thought she just forget to clean out the tub, so I let the water out, washed the tub thoroughly, and ran her some more bathwater.

Unfortunately, the same thing happened. There were particles of disgusting appearance running into the tub with the water. Instantly, I started to feel sick, because this would mean unclean drinking water for me and my family. After seeing this, I immediately called my landlord and begin talking to her about water filtration media.

Watching the Nightly News as a Child

August 2nd, 2015

Growing I was a little different. Instead of watching cartoons like other kids I liked to watch the news. I found it interesting learning about what was going on near me. Some of the stories were rather bland or seemed to be a stretch, but the news of daily life was always intriguing. I also loved to watch national news casts. There are so many interesting things that are going on in this country. So many good stories that I was able to hear about every day. One of the things that always intrigued me most was the weather. I found it fascinating that someone could predict what the weather was going to be like the next day. They weren’t always right, but usually they were pretty close. Now that I’ve grown a little older I’m less inclined to enjoy the news. Even the weatherman with his green screens doesn’t hold the same appeal.

Jumping Over Petals

May 26th, 2015

It was a bright, clear spring day, and the bees were buzzing, While momma told me to stay away from the flowers Harrogate blooming in her garden; I couldn’t resist to flounder innocently among the colorful petals. As I entered the “no fly zone”, a subtle, quiet hum filled my ears. Little did I know that in a few seconds that hum would be the warning signal to drop everything and run. The glorious colorful garden attracted the honey bees for our apple farm, and that buzz was coming from 200 bees or so. It only took one sniff of my curious nose to understand the imminent danger I poised. As soon as my nose touch the sweet center of the purple petals, a sharp stinging sensation jabbed deep into my nose. Jolted by the pain, I hurdled over the gate, ran to momma, and exclaimed “the petals are under attack!”

Hearing Restored

May 24th, 2015

It was time to face it: sounds were starting to run together. Since I like being able to understand people, especially my kids, it was time to do something about it. I headed in to the store and picked up one of those ear wax removal Stockport kits, hoping that would be all it took to restore me to normal hearing.

You know what they don’t tell you about those kits? They’re messy. Sure, there’s something kind of satisfying about hearing that soft crackle as the wax in your ears breaks up, and it’s a relief to see all that wax landing in the sink. It’s also a good idea, however, to remember to either throw a towel over your shoulders or accept that you’re going to have to change your shirt afterward, because wax-filled water goes everywhere. Or maybe that’s just me? On the bright side, I could hear again.
