Red Nose Day 2016

Today is Red Nose Day so my son is participating to this great cause.  Thanks to my husband for bring us a red nose.  The aim of this  event is to raise awareness  about children living in poverty all over the world.  A lot of stars are putting on a show to raise money fo this great cause.  All the  money raised   by Red Nose Day will help support projects in some of the neediest communities in the U.S. and some of the poorest communities in the world. People from all walks of life are encouraged to get involved, have fun and raise money by buying red noses sold exclusively at Walgreens stores nationwide, organizing fundraising events and watching and donating during the television special.

Super 8 Experience

Our  road trip to Hershey Park was an spontaneous type of trip.  We did not plan it as wehave cancelled our summer trip last year due to kennel issues but my husband said that we should  take the kids to a road trip at least for a couple of days if we can find someone to  look after our dogs.  So we went to Hershey  Park and it was the best decision as we had a blast.  
 LOng trips such as this is very tiring but glad that our kids are  good travelers.  They are up for long trips as long as we are together.  We have never been to Hershey Park so we a were all excited.
 These photos were taken when we first arrived at Super 8.  We didn't make any reservation but glad that they  had  vacancies that day and we were accomodated.
 We had to walk around the parking lot to stretche our legs.
 The kids  were creative and used the blocks in the parking lot to walk on.
 YOU Would think that after a long trip, they would be grumpy but  they are always looking for omething fun to do which I am grateful.  It makes traveling a lot easier.
 We don't have a plan of going on a vacation this year so we might go on a spontaneous trip again somewhere depending  if we can find someone to look after our dogs.  That's the downside  of having dogs, you can't just go.
 But anyway, Super 8 was a nice little hotel.  They were on the budget and it was near Hershey Park so we didn't have a hard time driving around.
 This was my firstr time staying in this hotel and I thought they are family-friendly.  Not the most luxurious but  they offer free breakfast and the rooms are super clean so I was satisfied.
 All the employees there are Indians and they are all super nice.
 There were two beds in a room so it was perfect for us.
 Their bathroom is super nice too.
I would stay there again if we ever have to go back to Hershey Park because it was near everything.

Linen Items Must Be Clean and Professional-Looking at All Times

If you own a catering company, a diner or restaurant, or a hotel, you know how important it is to have certain items on-hand at all times. This includes a variety of items considered ‘behind the scenes’ products, which most of your customers take for granted and simply expect you to have. Linen items are a perfect example of this type of product, because let’s face it, when a customer visits a restaurant or stays overnight in a hotel, they expect the linen to be fresh, clean, well-ironed, and looking great. One stain on a napkin, or one hole or tear in a sheet or pillow case, and most customers will notice immediately. Worse, because of these things they might never visit your facility again, which means you will lose not only their patronage, but also many other potential customers due to negative word-of-mouth reviews. No business owner wants this to happen, so having fresh and clean linen around at all times is a must, and so is hiring the right company to provide these items for you.


How Do You Find the Right Company?


Finding the right company to provide your linen items is not that difficult, because most of these companies are professional and offer only high-quality items. Most will, in fact, replace the items on a regular basis at no additional cost to you, so that regardless of how busy you are or how long you’ve been using the items, you can rest assured that you will always have top-notch linen products in your facility. In addition, most companies offer advantages such as:

· Constant checking of the items, to make sure that they are not faded, stained, or torn
· No long-term contracts
· No hidden fees – all fees are discussed up-front and in detail
· Fast delivery times
· A simple way to contact them should you need additional or replacement items

Although most of the companies require no contract, this does not mean that you will never hear from them after you start working together. Most of these companies want you as a long-term customer, so they will be in contact with you regularly to make sure that your linen items are acceptable to you and your business’s needs. In order for your business to continue to run smoothly, you need a linen company that offers all of the above and much more, so it will benefit you to do some research before deciding on a company.


Professional Services and Knowledgeable Employees Are Essential


Linen companies provide a variety of items, including sheets and pillowcases, blankets, robes, tablecloths, napkins, towels of all sizes, and even many types of chefs’ wear. Taking advantage of Stalbridge linen hire services and other services offered by similar companies is easy on your part, because the companies have professional employees that know what they are doing and can help you choose the product you are looking for. Whether you need white tablecloths for smaller tables, or various sizes of napkins in colours such as red, blue, and green, you can find what you need when researching linen companies. Most of them have products with a wide selection of styles, designs, and colours, so you can easily find something that fits your company’s d├ęcor and overall look.

In fact, these companies’ employees are so knowledgeable and professional, they even know how to pack your linen items in a way that allows them to remain crease-free on the ride over to your facility. Even the drivers are experienced, and offer the professionalism you have come to expect when dealing with companies such as this. Overall, your experience with a linen company should include knowledgeable personnel, excellent products, and an easy way to receive the products you need at any time. Whether you need items on a weekly basis or every six months, the company you choose should be able to accommodate your needs.


Not All Linen Companies Are Alike


When choosing a linen company, it is best to remember that not all of them are alike. Sure, you can order your linens online through a company that offers cheap products, but how will you know they are efficient at their jobs? How can you tell that their products are well-made and meant to last? The only way to know for sure is to research the companies online. A good linen company will offer a wide selection of high-quality products, employees who provide extra-special customer service skills, fast delivery times, and a simple way to exchange your linens should they become stained or torn. Most of all, the company should make you feel at ease when you contact them, and should remain in contact with you even after your items are delivered to your facility.

In addition, it is also a good idea to look for any extra or unique services they may provide, such as embroidery, dry-cleaning services, repairs that include button replacements and garment alterations, and disposable items such as hot towels that you can purchase directly from the company. In other words, linen companies should offer more than just napkins and tablecloths, and should include an all-inclusive list of items that are important to your business. A one-stop shopping option is an excellent time-saving device, so it is smart to research linen companies until you find one that offers all of these things.

When you own or operate a facility that needs top-notch linens for your business to run as it should, finding an excellent linen company is crucial. You simply do not have the time to provide these items yourself, or go from one linen company to another in order to get everything you need for your business. Professional linen companies should offer you everything you need for your business, at reasonable prices, and with fast turnaround times. These companies do exist, so it is important that you keep researching them until you find the one that is right for you.

Top Sites to Visit In Dublin, Ireland

Americans love Ireland—that’s no secret. Between the very friendly people and the fascinating sites, it’s no wonder tourists flock to it for vacations and expats see it as one of the best places to retire. If you happen to find yourself in Dublin, you might not know exactly what to do—it is more than a thousand years old, after all, meaning it has built up a lot of important sites over time. With so many things and places to explore, these are some of the more popular choices for you to visit while visiting Dublin:

Guinness Storehouse
A bit of a ways from city-center, Guinness Storehouse is a mecca for beer-lovers—although really anyone should visit, because its enormous keg-shaped facility rises seven floors and peaks in a bar with a 360-degree view of Dublin and the surrounding mountains—something you really can’t see anywhere else.

Trinity College, its library, and the Book of Kells
Trinity College was established by Elizabeth I in order to form a trio with Cambridge and Oxford—but since Ireland is not part of the United Kingdom, that affiliation seems to have gone by the wayside. Either way, its campus is more than 400 years old, and features a stunning Old Library (which may or may not be the library George Lucas used for Star Warsyou be the judge) and the Book of Kells, a 1200-year-old book of the gospels that is one of the most stunning examples of illuminated manuscripts around. Also keep an eye out in the library for a copy of the Easter Proclamation—the document which declared Ireland a republic separate from the U.K. and launched them on the road to true independence.

St. Stephen’s Green
If you’re feeling weary from all your sightseeing, St. Stephen’s Green is a beautiful park for a picnic, a nap, reading the book, or just sitting on your rump in general. Its flower beds, fountains, pond, and shady trees are the perfect place to take a break, and it’s located in city-center, meaning once you’re done, tons of sites are right nearby.

National Museum of Ireland – Archaeology
In 841, Vikings made a huge settlement in Dublin in what is now known as Wood Quay. Sadly, the site was largely destroyed by the construction of government offices after it was discovered, but the National Museum of Ireland was able to spend several years excavating the site, uncovering two million artifacts. These now can be seen in the archaeology museum, along with the mummies of people found in Irish bogs, plenty of important Irish artefacts, and exhibits on ancient Egypt and Cyprus.

Kilmainham Gaol
Ireland’s road to independence was paved with blood and sacrifice—and no location can tell this story better than Kilmainham Gaol (“jail”). Many of the leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising were imprisoned and executed here—an action which at last stirred the Irish into their final rebellion against the British crown. It finally became a republic free of the United Kingdom in 1949, after a civil war.

Mother's Day 2016

Mother's day this year  was great although we did not do anything fancy.  My kids gave me their present which I appreciated very much because they are the projects they made/did in school.  
 "Mom, but first tyea" mug that my daughter painted in their art class.
My husband   cooked some breakfast for us.  He let me slept in that day so I was energized when I woke up, thanks hon!  We then  headed out to Home Depot after we ate breakfast because we hd to  return the tools we rented in sanding the floors.  We also looked at furnitures at LaZ Boy and Bob's Furniture.  We did some gardening  when we came back home and then we went to Twister to treat the kids for helping me out.
Celebrating  MOther's Day always makes me appreciate my Mama even more.  She did so much for us and I don't think I can even do everything that she's been through just to raise 9 kids.  I only have two but sometime's it's even harder for me that's why ny mother is the best MOm I know!  Being a Mom is such a blessing!

Best Tips For Keeping Cats And Dogs Together


It’s commonly accepted that cats and dogs are natural born enemies. However, it’s completely possible for them to co-exist in the same house. This kind of peace and harmony is possible, but it isn’t always easy to achieve! You’ll need to put in a fair amount of work if you want to keep both pets healthy and happy. Here are some great tips for keeping both a cat and a dog.

Ideally, you should get both pets when they’re a puppy and kitten. At this stage, your pets will be too young to have any bad experiences with their rival species. You won’t need to worry about instincts working in the wrong way. Obviously, this isn’t always practical, and you probably already have a cat or a dog. In this case, you should still go for a younger animal. This way, you’ll know that at least one of your pets won’t be automatically aggressive. Even if you do manage to get a puppy and a kitten, you should always make a point of supervising them together. A puppy’s play is often a little too boisterous for kittens. You shouldn’t need to take out an extra pet insurance policy, but a slow introduction is definitely recommended.

If you already have a cat or a dog, then try to find another pet that matches their behaviour. This will reduce the chances of any big fights, and make the whole settling in process easier. Ideally, you should ask for a dog with some experience around cats, or vice versa. The workers at the shelter will be happy to help you narrow down the perfect candidate for your home. Try to get a feel for the animal’s personality as well. If you already have a lazy dog at home, then look for an equally lazy cat. If your dog’s young and full of beans, then an energetic cat is a better choice.

Finally, set out a safe haven for the cat in this situation. Most cats sleep for at least 12 hours a day, and I’m sure you know they can sit around for extremely long periods. Dogs, on the other hand, are more liable to go stir crazy, and actively look for stimulation. Whether the cat was here first or not, you should have a place in your house which is off-limits to the dog. Make sure it has a litter tray, food and water, and a scratching post. If you already have your cat, it might be worth getting them used to this room before the dog turns up. When your cat knows it can get away from the dog when it needs to, it will be far more relaxed. Remember that cats can run away with relative ease. Regardless of the animal you prefer, pamper your cat and keep the whole experience as relaxed as possible.



These three tips will make your pets’ lives much easier during this transition. My final piece of advice is to know when to quit. I love living around animals, but that’s no excuse to make two of them unhappy.
