Indoor air quality Vancouver WA

Indoor air qualityIf you’ve never thought about your indoor air quality you might consider it now. We recently read an article on what causes poor indoor air quality at Tri-Tech Heating in Vancouver’s website and made some changes in how we store our cleaning and maintenance supplies as a direct result of reading the article.

My Mom was complaining that her allergies seem to be much worse this year so I started to surf the web to learn more about indoor air quality. I was amazed at how much it can impact our quality of life. Indoor air pollution comes from many things – seen and unseen – in and around the house. After reading up on the way our indoor air quality affects our quality of life I realized we needed to make some changes.

The first thing I did was take our cleaning and gardening chemicals out of the garage (they were stored on a shelf right next to the furnace) and into our outdoor garden shed. I had never really thought about the fact that, by nature of it’s design, our furnace/air conditioning was sucking those fumes right into our house on a daily basis!

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.

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.

Air conditioning Vancouver WA

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.
