A place for Mom – assisted living in Olympia WA

Nancy Watkins - Assisted Living specialistI am fortunate, I have a Mom that is in great shape. She is in her late 70s and still the same woman she was in her 50s. We share a home and I consider her my equal not someone I need to care for. Unfortunately that isn’t always the case. Sometimes we need to find a place for Mom because we can’t provide the assisted living services she really needs ourselves. In these times I recommend finding someone that is a specialist in this area such as our friend at Assisted Living Options in Olympia WA.

Nancy has made a career and created a business out of investigating the assisted living resources available in the Olympia area and choosing only the best facilities to share with her clients AT NO CHARGE TO THE CLIENT! Nancy gets paid by the facilities so she can work for you for free. Because her passion about this stems from a personal desire to insure that every family is able to make educated and thoughtful decisions about a place for Mom, frequently in a moment of crisis, you can feel confident that she has contracted with enough sites to insure that your Mom’s needs are put first and foremost.

If you are looking for a similar service, finding a place for Mom in Vancouver WA we recommend A Caring Heart.

Get a free Divorce Case Evaluation in Chicago

We recently noticed a new option available at this divorce attorney’s website for a “Free Case Evaluation” At first I thought “how can she afford to do this?” but then I realized, if you read the questions, this is designed to help someone going through a divorce better determine what kind of a divorce lawyer they need. Although I have not personally submitted the request (hey! I’m still happily single), my guess is that the attorney will be able to guide the person submitting this form toward the right level of divorce lawyer based on their answers.

Obviously, Belle Gordon is over qualified for a simple divorce case but it appears she might be willing to make an assessment and steer someone in the right direction with a quick email response to the online form.

Of course, from what I’ve read about Ms. Gordon, if I were in a position of needing a divorce where lots of assets are involved, I would choose her!

Cabins Yellowstone Park… the very best!

Cabins Yellowstone Park… man that is my idea of a vacation! Yellowstone National Park draws out the kid in me and being able to head back to a comfy cabin after a day of exploration just makes it a complete experience. Of course many people get a much more rustic image in their minds when I say “cabins Yellowstone Park” than I am talking about. My idea of a Yellowstone National Park cabin might be equal to a great place to live year around as well!

But we all know lodging in Yellowstone National Park is only a very small part of the experience.  Below are my five favorite things to do as a family when we go there:

Old Faithful & Upper Geyser Basin
Upper Geyser Basin is the best place in Yellowstone to see geysers erupt. It is home to Old Faithful, the best-known Yellowstone geyser, as well as five out of six predicted geysers in the park. What’s more, Upper Geyser Basin boasts the highest concentration of geysers in the world. There are more than 150 of these hydrothermal features in just one square mile!

Watch Wildlife
There is something about seeing wildlife in its proper place that is beyond written words. In Yellowstone you can feel bison bulls shake the earth as they collide in battle. You can observe gray wolves stalk their prey. Checkout grizzlies playfully bathing in the waters. Yellowstone is inhabited by the same large mammals found there at the end of the Pleistocene era.

  • black bear
  • coyote
  • red fox
  • mountain lion
  • moose
  • elk
  • pronghorn
  • mule deer
  • bighorn sheep
  • bald eagles
  • peregrine
  • falcons
  • river otter
  • trumpeter swans
  • and so many more

Ever heard of a Mud Pot?
There are three places in Yellowstone to see mud in action – Fountain Paint Pots, Artists’ Paint Pots, and Mud Volcano. The mud pots at Fountain Paint Pots are Yellowstone’s most easily reached pools of hot bubbling mud. The mud pots at Artists Paint Pots are the most fun to watch. And while Mud Volcano no longer erupts, this hydrothermal area is the most eerily intriguing spot in Yellowstone National Park. Visit one but think twice before touring all three.

Hikes offered by the park rangers
The Ranger Adventure Hikes offered by the park rangers at Yellowstone are a great way to engage the kids and get beyond the boardwalk. One hike takes intrepid walkers to tranquil beaver ponds that hold the promise of sighting wildlife. While none of the hikes are specifically geared to families, kids are welcome on all excursions. Of note, these hikes aren’t strolls. The shortest is 4 hours long.

Boiling River
Boiling River is an off-map must. This five-star hot tub, one of only two safe (and legal) soaks in Yellowstone, offers a fun break from family touring. Amble the paved ½-mile trail. Watch birds, bison and elk. Soak in a natural spa, a mix of hot (hot spring stream) and cold (Gardner River).

Horseback Rides & Old West Cookouts
Concessionaires within Yellowstone Park offer a variety of Old West experiences within America’s first national park. Take a horseback ride through sagebrush flats. Enjoy a stagecoach adventure on a horse-drawn, covered wagon. Take one or the other to an Old West Cookout and feast on a chuck wagon dinner. And if you are looking for something a bit more bold, sign-up for a back country horseback ride with a permitted stock outfitter.

Chicago Divorce Lawyer finds hidden assets

Divorce lawyer helps you find hidden assetsWhen looking for a Chicago divorce lawyer, especially if you are in a situation where there may be many substantial financial considerations, it is important to hire an attorney that knows how to help you understand all assets that are involved. Chicago divorce lawyer Belle Gordon has many years of experience. In addition to maintaining her high ethical standards and working to help her clients positively work through the natural conflicts that arise in any divorce process, she helps them uncover hidden assets.

Why do we think this is important? Because many times one spouse has invested many years supporting another in ways that may not have brought revenue directly into the family but certainly has made it possible for the  spouse to thrive and prosper financially as well as spiritually. We feel it is important that both parties walk away from the relationship with the appropriate and fair distribution of wealth and assets.

Divorce lawyers in Chicago, as well as other cities where affluence is often found should be strong negotiators as well as possess a bit of “sleuthing” talent.

These people know their heating and cooling! Air conditioning in Vancouver WA may not seem important when you notice it snowed there in March … but doesn’t a late winter mean a hot summer in the northwest?

We talked to a lot of service companies in the Vancouver WA area before we decided to recommend Tri-Tech. We were particularly taken with their personal contact. The owner, Jeremy Harmon, took the call himself! As a small business ourselves, we want to work with and recommend people that take the same approach to working with others we do. This is a company that knows that word of mouth is the number one way to win business.

Give them a call and set up a meeting to discuss a new air conditioning solution or service and repair of an existing one.

Furnace repair in Vancouver WA is important when you need it!

With all of the recent weather happenings in Vancouver WA and the surrounding areas we felt it was a good time to make our recommendations for furnace repair in Vancouver WA. We have chosen Tri-Tech Heating as our preferred vendor for Vancouver Washington furnace repair because they are local, reliable and have a great track record!

Hiring a furnace repair person can be scary and often comes when we are cold and vulnerable. When you choose Tri-Tech Heating, Inc. you can relax a little. The company is owned and operated by people that have the same experiences in life that you and I do. I met Brenda and Jeremy Harmon via a mutual friend a few months ago. Since then I have found nothing but good news about them!

I highly recommend them for any of your HVAC needs!
