Stop the Squeak

Squeaky Door Hinges

Spray a little WD-40 onto the hinges, moving the door back and forth to work in the lubricant. Or try rubbing the hinges with petroleum jelly. If these tricks don’t work, lift the hinge pins about halfway and lubricate them with three-in-one oil, using a rag to catch drips.

Cold Weather and Lil' Best Friends

2/3/2016 (Permalink)

General Cold Weather and Lil' Best Friends "Sweetie" my little buddy.

My little dog, a Carin terrier mix loves to hang outdoors with me but sometimes the weather is just too harsh for her to hang outside for too long.

The cold weather can cause problems for us humans as well as our pets. Our pets just like humans can experience the harsh consequences of cold weather. Hypothermia and frostbite can be seen in animals who have been exposed to the elements for an extended amount of time.

Recognize problems: If your pet is whining, shivering, seems anxious, slows down or stops moving, seems weak, or starts looking for warm places to burrow, get them back inside quickly because they are showing signs of hypothermia. Frostbite is harder to detect, and may not be fully recognized until a few days after the damage is done. If you suspect your pet has hypothermia or frostbite, consult your veterinarian immediately.

SERVPRO Story

1/21/2016 (Permalink)

Ted and Doris Isaacson launched SERVPRO in 1967 as a painting business in Sacramento, Calif. With a background in cleaning and restoration, however, Ted and Doris soon transformed the company into a franchisor of cleanup and restoration specialists.

After selling its first Franchise in 1969, SERVPRO continued to grow, acquiring the Bristol-Myers Domesticare Division and its 175 Franchises in 1979.

SERVPRO relocated the corporate headquarters from Sacramento to Gallatin, TN, in 1988 in a strategic move to place itself within 600 miles of 50% of the U.S. population. At the time of the relocation, the SERVPRO System consisted of 647 Franchises

Today, SERVPRO has more than 1,650 Franchises operating nationwide, and SERVPRO will continue to grow.

SERVPRO of South Colorado Springs and Northern Colorado Springs/Tri-Lakes has been locally owned and operated for 20 years. We value our customers and we often have repeat customers.

New Year's Resolutions

1/6/2016 (Permalink)

This past year has just closed out and into a new year we journey. Each new year brings with it a new hope,  an anticipation that this year will be better than the last, and possibly see to completion a couple of New Years Resolutions. For several years I have made or at least attempted to create a list of New Years Resolutions. But, could never seem to take it from pencil to paper to applying to my everyday life. I often failed before putting the first few words into writing since it seemed a bit hopeless in that I had not seen any type of success in the years previous. Well….last night I was reading an article that gave me a bit of hope and it might possibly stir something up in you.

Snapshot of the article….

“It is important to view one’s self and strengths to feel stronger and get personal reinforcement from small successes,” Rich Feller, a Thought Leader with Life-Reimagined (AARP), said.

What’s important to you in your 30’s may differ at a later age. The ability to reflect on your lived experiences can trigger a desire to change an attitude or behavior.

Here are resolutions to consider:

In your 30’s
1) Turn off technology and tune in to each other. Engage in more face-to-face time. Good relationships can contribute to a ‘good life’.

2) De-stress. Identify one source of stress for you. Know how your body feels when stressed and how it impacts your thoughts. List three healthy coping mechanisms and choose one to use daily.
In your 40’s
1) Do a relationship check-up. Sit down with your partner and ask three questions. Do we understand each other when we communicate? Is our relationship where we want it to be? What is one thing that each of us can do to improve our relationship. If you are single, ask the same questions of yourself. How is your communication with others? Think about an outside relationship with a family member or co-worker, and identify an action that you can do to improve a desired outcome.

2) De-clutter. Clearing out a physical space helps you relax and process with more clarity. Begin with one drawer, closet or area. Mindfully throw things away by only keeping what brings you joy or is essential to your life purpose.
In your 50’s
1) Eat this, not that! Inform yourself about your eating patterns. Keep a food journal for one week by writing down everything that you eat and drink. Reflect on it and find one thing that you can do to make your meals and eating patterns healthier.

2) Just do it! Say YES to something or someone every day for a month. Notice how it feels and the freedom of being fearless.
If you are 60+
1) Make a doable bucket list.  Don’t hold back. Choose one item from your list. Write down a date and go for it.

2) Talk to your health care provider yearly about recommended health screens. Make a commitment to schedule and complete them. Remind your loved ones to do the same.

As you make your New Year’s resolutions change your mindset from “I want” to “I am and will” because of a renewed sense of your own purpose and values. Reflect on your life and understand “the why” behind your goals.

Maybe I’ve been going at it all-wrong!
