Vessel Sinks, A Must for your Bathroom

 Blog, Decor  Comments Off on Vessel Sinks, A Must for your Bathroom

In the last few years, vessel sinks are becoming the in-thing for the bathroom.  When making decisions for the bath, a vessel sink makes for a very aesthetically pleasing fixture as well as providing the functionality you’d expect.   Possibly the main reason why more and more people are installing vessel sinks is their artistic appeal. They really can be works of art. They are available in all shapes, like a rectangle, bowl, to the downright weird. You can buy them in all kinds of materials, from basic porcelain, elegant bronze, to lavish marble. Moreover the colors are endless. You can choose from an entire range of colors to white or black, you name it. Or maybe you want a sparkling clear vessel sink; then you can install a vessel sink produced out of crystal or glass.

Vessel sinks make for a nice departure from the standard vanity or basin. Instead of being molded into the counter or drop mounted, vessel sinks sit on top of the counter and are plumbed directly through. This makes for a very unique looking bathroom t reatment. With all the great choices for vessel sinks, not only will you have a unique design element in your bath, but you’ll also be able to fit it in with virtually any décor choices you want. Being able to have a custom vessel sink means that any shape or style you’re looking for can be had.

A popular choice is the glass vessel sink because it looks highly impressive and expensive.   An advantage to installing a glass vessel sink into your bathroom is the fact that cleaning them is very simple.  Just wet a cloth with a detergent solution and wipe them off, it’s as simple as that. Since glass does not have any pores there is no chance for any bacteria to hide in them. This is one of the main advantages of the glass vessel sinks over their porcelain counterparts.

Installing a vessel sink in your bathroom is a way to have a totally unique home design element that will be functional and give you the artistic flavor you want.  Cabinet-S-Top can help you choose the right vessel sink for your bathroom to impress your guests.  Act now to receive a FREE Solera Glass Vessel Sink with a Bathroom Renovation ($1,000 minimum purchase) – offer expires 7/31/11.

Building a Team of Professionals for Independent Business Owners

 Blog, Business  Comments Off on Building a Team of Professionals for Independent Business Owners
Jul 152011
 

When was the last time you met with your team of professionals to help you with a key business decision? If you’re like many independent business owners, you may be thinking “What team of professionals?” As a business owner, you probably handle the running of the business yourself. Still, it is possible to run a business more efficiently and profitably by utilizing a team of professionals who can consult and guide you in the management of your company. The trick is to seek out team members for the long term –– to build relationships with professionals who will understand your situations and needs on an ongoing basis. Special bonus: Many of these professionals are also independent business owners just like you.

Here are four key players:

Attorney: You may prefer an attorney who specializes in the needs of business owners and can consult with you on topics such as asset ownership, best-choice business form, succession planning, contract review and employee-employer relationships. A crucial component lies in establishing a relationship with your attorney, so that you can simply pick up the phone when you have a question.

Accountant: Once again, you may prefer someone who understands the needs of independent business people and, if possible, also knows your industry. An accountant should help you “read” your books more effectively, translate raw data, help you effectively plot areas of profit and loss, and –– perhaps most important –– show you ways to manage your tax liability. In short, your CPA could save you money. To really benefit from your accountant, don’t make the mistake of meeting only once a year at tax time: give your accountant the opportunity to work with you all year long.

An Officer at Your Financial Institution: Credit is the lifeblood of many businesses. It’s always important to maintain contact with the person who can help you access the cash flow you need at the time that you need it and at a favorable rate. In addition to issuing credit, many financial institutions frequently provide a wealth of other services at minimal or no charge. Regular contact with your institution will keep you abreast of new opportunities that can benefit your business.

An Insurance Professional: An insurance agent familiar with the challenges facing independent business owners can act as an effective problem solver. Specifically, a trained, licensed insurance professional can play several crucial roles in your business:

  1. 1. Help your company meet its immediate insurance protection needs. This includes helping select and fund insurance for key executive coverage, death and disability* buy-out, pension, and other qualified plans.
  1. 2. Help meet your personal insurance and financial product needs. Family decisions can be a key factor in making any business decisions. Your insurance agent can help you coordinate a cohesive insurance program that satisfies your needs and goals on personal and professional levels.
  1. 3. Help coordinate the work of other professionals. Insurance agents will help you focus on the big picture and work to help you put together a team of professionals.

Please note: Disability insurance is available through one or more carriers not affiliated with New York Life, dependent on carrier authorization and product availability in your state or locality.

What’s That Haze on Your Headlights?

 Blog, Cleaning, Uncategorized  Comments Off on What’s That Haze on Your Headlights?
Jul 152011
 

That haze you find on your car’s headlights is caused by oxidation and is a common occurrence in older vehicles.  Oxidized headlights not only detract from the appearance of your ride but limit your visibility when driving at night.  Depending on the model of your vehicle, new replacement headlights can cost a few hundred dollars.  A cost effective alternative is to apply an anti-oxidant remover on your headlight to restore its clarity.  After applying the anti-oxidant, don’t forget to apply a sealing agent.  There are many products to choose from but the wise choice is to purchase a kit containing an anti-oxidant, the sealing agent, and application pads.  You can find the kit at any auto supply store for under $20.

Sparkling headlights add the finishing touch to an impeccably detailed car.  Are you too busy to take the time to pamper your ride?  Call No Time Cleaning Services today – we pay attention to detail.  For more auto detailing tips, check out my blog at http://notime4cleaning.com .  Don’t forget that Working Women Connection members get 10% off!

Tip of the Day:

An inexpensive way to clean raised letters on your car, truck or van tires is using SOS.  SOS removes unsightly scuffs and leaves your raised letters a sparkling white!

CREATE A SAFER AND HEALTHY HOME KNOW YOUR ABC’S INDOOR POLLUTION

 Blog, Health  Comments Off on CREATE A SAFER AND HEALTHY HOME KNOW YOUR ABC’S INDOOR POLLUTION
Jul 152011
 

By Dr. Joyce M. Woods

Dr. Joyce Woods worked as a medical/surgical nurse, public health nurse, nurse educator, nursing school administrator, occupational health consultant. She holds Bachelor of Nursing, Bachelor of Arts (Specialist), Master of Education degrees, and has completed her doctoral degree in the area of “Indoor Air Pollution, and …it’s effect on your health”

  1. Begin by thinking of your home as a toxic waste dump. The average home today contains 62 toxic chemicals – more than a chemistry lab at the turn of the century.
  2. More than 72,000 synthetic chemicals have been produced since WW II.
  3. Less than 2% of synthetic chemicals have been tested for toxicity, mutagenic, carcinogenic, or birth defects.
  4. The majority of chemicals have never been tested for long-term effects.
  5. An EPA survey concluded that indoor air was 3 to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air.
  6. Another EPA study stated that the toxic chemicals in household cleaners are 3 times more likely to cause cancer than outdoor air.
  7. CMHC reports that houses today are so energy efficient that “outgassing” of chemicals has no where to go, so it builds up inside the home.
  8. We spend 90% of our time indoor, and 65% of our time at home. Moms, infants and the elderly spend 90% of their time in the home.
  9. National Cancer Association released results of a 15 year study concluding that women who work in the home are at a 54% higher risk of developing cancer than women who work outside the home.
  10. Cancer rates have almost doubled since 1960.
  11. Cancer is the Number ONE cause of death for children.
  12. There has been a 26% increase in breast cancer since 1982. Breast cancer is the Number ONE killer of women between the ages of 35 and 54. Primary suspects are laundry detergents, household cleaners and pesticides.
  13. There has been a call from the U.S./ Canadian Commission to ban bleach in North America. Bleach is being linked to the rising rates of breast cancer in women, reproductive problems in men and learning and behavioral problems in children.
  14. Chemicals get into our body through inhalation, ingestion and absorption.
  15. We breathe 10 to 20 thousand liters of air per day.
  16. There are more than 3 million poisonings every year. Household cleaners are the Number ONE cause of poisoning of children.
  17. Since 1980, asthma has increased by 600%. The Canadian Lung Association and Asthma Society of Canada identify common household cleaners and cosmetics as triggers.
  18. ADD/ADHD are epidemic in schools today. Behavioral problems have long been linked to exposure to toxic chemicals and molds. Use of Ritalin has skyrocketed since 1990.
  19. Chemical and environmental sensitivities are known to cause all types of headaches.
  20. Labeling laws do not protect the consumer – they protect big business.
  21. The New York Poison Control Center reports that 85% of product warning labels were either inadequate or incorrect for identifying a poison, and for first aid instructions.
  22. Formaldehyde, phenol, benzene, toluene, xylene are found in common household cleaners, cosmetics, beverages, fabrics and cigarette smoke. These chemicals are cancer causing and toxic to the immune system.
  23. Chemicals are attracted to, and stored in fatty tissue. The brain is a prime target for these destructive organics because of its high fat content and very rich blood supply.
  24. The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health has found more than 2500 chemicals in cosmetics that are toxic, cause tumors, reproductive complications, biological mutations and skin and eye irritations.
  25. Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, circulatory disorders, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, and hormonal problems are diseases commonly related to chemical exposure.
  26. Pesticides only have to include active ingredients on the labels, even though the inert (inactive) ingredients may account for 99%, many of which are toxic and poisons.

More facts from Indoor Air Pollution Seminar held on October 23rd, 1999.Our homes should have a complete change of air 3 or 4 time a day. New homes are built so air tight that it is impossible to get a complete change of air. We should leave our windows open on each side of our house for better cross ventilation!  Top three culprits of children incidents- Household cleaners, bleach and medications. n the USA the #1 cause of accidental poisoning is Dawn Dishwashing detergent WHY? Because it is the #1 seller.

Tide contains Lye and is the #1 polluter and it is also the #1 seller. Deep Woods Off has an ingredient called DEET. DEET causes seizures in children and adults. Why can they

produce products with such harsh chemical’s: They are protected by trade secret laws!

In the work place Material Safety Data Sheets must accompany any product used. When these same chemicals used our brought into our homes they are not.

The ideal rate of humidity is between 35% and 45%. Anything higher causes mold.

When we use humidifiers or dehumidifiers with standing water we are encouraging mold growth with the standing water.

The ideal temperature in the home is between 68 degrees and 72 degrees, anything higher makes chemicals more active.

When we shower, the hot water combined with the chlorine in the water, can cause major headaches.

Using aerosols causes dizziness.

Steam from our dryer vents is extremely toxic, because of the chemicals from dryer sheets and residue from laundry soap and bleach.

Chemicals used to dry clean clothing are very dangerous and can cause cancer. When you bring dry cleaning home, you should hang it outside for at least 3 days.

Dry-cleaning chemicals are the same cancer causing chemicals that are found in mothballs.

There are 4700 chemicals in tobacco smoke.

Chemicals from carpets and plastic have been found to cause kidney and liver damage.
