The 90th Birthday Party Disaster

August 20, 2015 Dorothy Sales

My grandmother’s 90th birthday party was supposed to be a success. All the decorations were in place and everything seemed to be going well. Oh, but the cake was late, the food was gross and the whole thing was a nightmare. What did I ever think that I could pull off such a spectacular event all by myself? Sure, I tried my hardest but taking on an event like this is just not for everyone.

I found the cheapest of everything to do things on a budget. Oh if I had just hired an events staff they could have created an evening that was quite remarkable and instead of running around like a chicken with my head cut off, I could have enjoyed this precious time with my grandma. I am a firm believer in the lowest priced is not always the best, and this disastrous party just further proved it. Once burnt, now I’ve learned my lesson. Next time, I am leaving it to to the professionals.

The Greatest Show On Earth

August 8, 2015 Dorothy School

While sitting at my computer, I kept seeing articles and videos about circus performers. Their way of life seemed so intriguing and mystical. I wanted to know more and I knew I had to be a part of it.

I wasn’t sure how to follow this new found dream of mine. I didn’t know how to approach it, or what kinds of talents I had that could even translate to any kind of performance. I am not an acrobat, I do not own a tiger, and my balance isn’t very good. Is there some kind of circus workshop to teach me the way of the circus? After dwelling on this, my dream was fading.

Suddenly, I stumbled upon the most colorful and entertaining video yet. Clowns were dancing around on my screen. They needed no poise or balance. The seemingly less talent they showed the more talent they actually had. I had found my calling and my new dream. I wanted to be a clown.

Can you hear me now? Good!

August 2, 2015 Dorothy Health

As we age, everything slowly stops working, including our hearing. But, what if I told you that a lot of our hearing problems actually stems from improper ear wax treatment and removal, you can improve your hearing by up to 15-20%? Ear wax removal Stockport is a little known method that has been around for hundreds of years in varying forms. A method I tried that is still in practice today is the use of ear candles. Made of 100% beeswax, these long tapered cones are stuck inside the ear canal, while the other end is lit. The result is that a vacuum is created, drawing out toxins and wax. While I was nervous the entire time, the ear candles effectively removed excessive ear wax, along with toxins, and I immediately noticed improved hearing after using them. I highly recommend using ear candles when considering treatment to improve your hearing.

Nothing but the Birds out There

July 26, 2015 Dorothy Gardening

Living on the same peaceful street for years, my mom had no complaints about her neighbors, until three years ago when one of them moved. The new neighbor was quiet enough, but he walked around his home in the buff, and my mom didn’t appreciate her occasional glimpses of him au naturel. She cast about for solutions, looking for an effective and economical intervention to screen her view. After a few days of research, she found her cost-effective solution: green walls.

She planted the hedge and it quickly established itself, its leafy cover sparing her from any more intimate glimpses of her neighbor. Privacy aside, the hedge provided another boon the following spring—nesting robins. So now when she looks out her window, especially in the spring, it’s with with anticipation rather than caution.

Remodeling In Your Home

July 18, 2015 Dorothy Home Improvement

When we decided one day that it was time to remodel our bathroom, I knew it would be a long task that would look great at the end. We started out by removing our toilets, vanities, bathtub and tile. We went and picked out the colors that we wanted to paint the walls and did that first. We then went back and purchased our new toilet, vanities and tile. We did all of that work on our own and enjoyed working together to have the new bathroom we always wanted.

We hired bathrooms Bolton to install a bath fitter after we picked out a design that would match our decor. They were very professional, affordable and did a wonderful job. We were very pleased on how the bathroom turned out and are now working on our basement bathroom as well.

Golf….Difficult to play?

July 11, 2015 Dorothy Sports

Golf is one of the oldest sports in World History and is known to be the only sport that requires its players to participant on a course that is perfectly manicured. A typical course contains 18 holes and requires its players to have not more than 14 golf clubs of varying lengths and sizes. Although knowing the rules of the game will help a player accomplish a great score he or she should also possess four characteristics; patience, stability, time, and great eye hand coordination. It is very important to possess these characteristics as these will help you avoid guiding your ball to a silica sand bunker.

Even though golf is a well liked sport world wide, there are few of us that dislike the game altogether. The reasons could be because its the most boring sport around and is a sport that many of us have no clue to what is going on.

Time To Patch The Driveway

July 6, 2015 Dorothy Home Improvement

I went to visit my sister a few weeks ago. The winter frost had made her driveway into an obstacle course. I knew we needed to talk, but had to choose the right time to bring up the issue. We were walking out to get the mail when I mentioned her driveway needed a few patches. She admitted this was true but had no idea how to fix it.

We talked about different options. She said it was important for the rainwater not to form puddles. I told her to patch with asphalt because it is a permeable paving material. It would allow the water to go through and into the ground.

Once she had a direction, she sat down and began calling paving companies. It only took a few hours to find a company that did patching with asphalt. She had it done the next day. Now I can visit my sister without worrying my car will fall into a giant hole in the driveway.
