When my fiancee Leah and I were seniors in college, we wanted to move in together. We planned to get an apartment together after graduation. We were ready to take on the world. After graduation, we moved into our first place. For a while, everything was going very well for us. After a year of living, things started to go bad for us. Our apartment had a bad infestation of rats and ants. We wanted to move to the Silver Spring apartments.
I first noticed something was wrong in my kitchen. I saw some ants crawling around my kitchen. I kept my apartment very clean and was puzzled how they got into my home. Every day, more and more ants kept coming. I swept the kitchen after every meal. Continue reading “My New Home is Free of Pests”
Facility management hvac in New York City is a must have if you possess a dedicated server room. That’s the place where you store all the sensitive computer hardware. It is absolutely essential that this room be protected from the elements. Not just dust and the dirt floating through the office, which is bad enough.

I remember when we first opened. We had a gravel lot for the first year. Continue reading “Renovating Our Store and Getting a New Paved Driveway Gets Me Reminiscing”

Seniors always are in need of rides to different spots . Identify few volunteers who can be on a call to help with free rides .
Surely seniors enjoy games and sports as much as we do but don’t get a chance to play them. Coordinating a championship or tournament of their favorite sports or board and card games is a great idea! Taking them to watch a game at a nearby stadium can help them rediscover the child in them.
As age progresses old folks give up on the little joys they enjoyed in their younger days. If they loved to dance, low-impact, therapeutic dance classes can be arranged. Nothing beats the fun of wearing your dancing shoes, even at an old age!
Seniors don’t get a chance to get out much. Field trips to picnic spots like temples/ gardens/resorts /shopping mall /movies could make them feel young again. But make sure the locations are senior-friendly !
Mealtimes can be lonely and difficult for old folks. Treat them to a feast by setting aside a day to visit them and prepare them a delicious meal . A date to a restaurant would also make them feel special.
