Happy Holidays Everyone

By KatherineComments Off

My favorite holiday was fast approaching. There was caroling, presents to buy and wrap, playing in the snow and my favorite part of celebrating for the holidays was choosing the decorations for my small apartment. Every year I would pick a different theme and this year I decided on an angel theme to put around my whole apartment. People I worked with always picked the same theme, or no theme at all and would decorate haphazardly. For the theme I picked out this year was an angel theme. Looking around my apartment I knew I could take down what was on my walls, but I always had trouble finding a place to store the items. I had read about transfers for glass and decided it would be much easier to put my angels on the windows. People driving by could see the pretty lights and brighten up their holiday.

Catch Would Be Burglars Red Handed

Having a security system installed is an excellent way to protect your business. It not only helps prevent breaking and entering but also records the individuals who are doing this so it is easier to track them down later on. Probably one of the best ways to go about doing this is with the help of Bolton CCTV. Short for closed circuit television, this is a way for you to set up video cameras around the property and have the video feed run directly to your computer or monitoring setup. This way, it is possible for you to have all of your security needs met and you can record as much footage as you need. Whether you go with a wireless configuration or a wired setup, there is something that is going to help prevent a break in and give you peace of mind for the business. So, the next time you are looking for security, check out closed circuit security systems.

Talking While Sleeping

By KatherineComments Off

I went camping last weekend with a close friend who works in water treatment. Her official job title is actually “water treatment specialist,” funnily enough. She has a bizarre habit of talking a lot in her sleep. She’s actually had this habit since we were very young children. When we’d have sleepovers, I’d wake up in the middle of the night hearing her mumble strange and random things like “caramel popcorn,” “the toy shop is closed” and “I don’t like handball.” Well, she continues to talk in her sleep as an adult. The only difference is the subject matter. She doesn’t talk about random foods, toy stores and sports in her sleep anymore. She talks about her job in water filtration media. I woke up at 3:00AM hearing her mumbling phrases like “water standards,” “granular activated carbon,” antracite and tannin resins. It was a very odd (but downright hilarious) experience indeed.

Could You Repeat That, Please?

By KatherineComments Off

She was working her regular job on the busiest of the week. Because she worked in a doctor’s office, there was always a ringing phone to contend with. This was, however, becoming of serious concern because she seemed to be going deaf lately.

She went to her doctor and was referred to an ENT (ear, nose, and throat) doctor. While waiting in the waiting room, she decided to scope out the hearing aids Manchester that were in the display cases. Price did not matter. All she wanted to do was be able to answer the phone at her desk and not have to say, “I’m sorry. Could you repeat that, please?”

The irony of her condition did not escape her. The practice she worked for saw patients with bad vision, but good hearing. Yet her eyesight was perfect and her hearing was lousy. Strange how life works out sometimes, isn’t it

One of the many hobbies that I have is glassblowing. Glassblowing is one of those hobbies that scare off many people. They believe that it is dangerous and expensive with little return. nothing could be further from the truth. A few tips for those of you who are looking at getting into the hobby. First, see if there is a glassblowing club in your area. These are great resources for beginners. Second, find a starter kit that is in your price range. Just search glass blowing starter kits. Finely, use high quality silica sand. This is not where you want to go cheap. Many people will spend a fortune on the kit then buy the cheapest sand they can find. Sand is not that expensive and your finished product will be greatly enhanced by using quality sand. I hope this has helped you on your way to a fun and rewarding hobby.

White As Snow

The children I work with in my daycare always find ways to amuse me and my family. My daycare is in my home, so I often spend the majority of my day with the kids as they are playing, napping or learning. My daughter sometimes helps me, and it was on one of these days that we saw golden gravel. It had snowed about 10 inches one weekend, and as soon as it stopped, I took the kids outside to play. There are two boys and one girl, making for some interesting conversations and actions. My daughter took the kids to build a snowman while I made cocoa. The next thing I heard was that one of the little boys made the snow yellow. I knew what had happened, and when the snow melted, we discovered a slightly metallic hue to the rocks underneath.
