My teenage daughter came to me the other day with a unique idea. Some of the ideas from a teenager’s mind are well… off the wall. This brilliant idea is literally off the wall! She suggested we make living walls spelling out her name and age. I was not at all hesitant, so we began research on the subject right away. This is a growing trend in contemporary homes and offices. They are easy to make and the results are endless. She wanted to spruce up her room decor and add some plants, but space is limited and we love creating ideas together. First we found the perfect spot, so we could measure the frame correctly. Then we went to Lowe’s and found a beautiful assortment of small plants. We then found an online site to help with specifics. She is proud to have her name displayed as living art.
Any person who owns their own business needs to keep track of all the sales, inventory, dates, and addresses of companies that they buy their merchandise from. Over the years as the business grows it is a good idea to keep all this important information on invoice NCR books for each year that your company is in business.
You can put the name of your business on the top of the form, there is a place to put down how many items the customer bought, and there is a large place to write down the description of the item or items. At the bottom of the form it will tell which copy is for the customer and which copy is for the business. Taking time to fill out the information gives you a better idea of how well your company is growing financially
It seems that every spring I get the urge to redecorate or renovate at least one of the rooms in my home. I’m not really sure why this happens, but we will just chalk it up to spring fever. This year I decided that the easiest way to get a new look in my family room was to visit my local home improvement store and look into putting up new window coverings. So off I went, into the massive concrete and steel shelf, mega-store. Little did I know there were so many choices. Walking up and down the many aisles of available items, I determined that I needed to push that little red button, and ask someone for help. After a few annoying overhead announcements, the associate appeared, clicked off the red button, and asked how they could assist me. When I asked which of the Manchester blinds came in the size that I needed, the associate looked more confused than me! She looked around, up and down, started slowly walking the aisles, appearing more and more puzzled. Finally, she turned around to me and said, “your guess is as good as mine”, and walked away! Not knowing what to do, I went back home, sat in my family room with a cup of tea, and determined that my old window coverings look just fine, and I will add some new throw pillows.
Sara had dreamed of having her own business for years, so the day she finally got her wish she couldn’t stop smiling. Sara wasn’t afraid of hard work, and when the business was all hers, it didn’t feel like work anyways. The store she opened sold new age supplies for those as spiritual as her. The customers that came in loved the feeling of tranquility that surrounded her, and all she sold. A few people didn’t like her though, and called her a witch. She was Wiccan, so she didn’t mind. When they found their insults didn’t upset her, they tried something else instead. Coming in to work one morning, she found her store windows had been broken, and everything was a mess. She panicked for a minute until she checked her CCTV Bolton system, and found it was recording all night. She had evidence of the people who had broken in, and now all she had to do was call the police.
I have worked in print design for more than 15 years and it has served me well. I have been able to create some beautiful designs on posters, brochures and in advertisements. However, I am at a point in my life where I feel it is time for a change.
I have decided to give web design Manchester a chance. I know several print designers that have made the transition and they rave about the increased creativity and new challenges. There certainly are many limitations in print design that simply don’t exist on the web, which makes the change all the more enticing.
Some of my friends and family have questioned this decision, as I am not exactly young. However, I am committed to being a lifetime learner, and will take this opportunity to launch a second career that will be as successful as the first.
I have always been the type of person to put the needs of other people before my own needs. Every time someone would ask me to do something for them, I would jump up and do it without any hesitation. However, that ended recently. A friend asked me to go to the store and purchase some silica sand, groceries and cleaning supplies for her. As usual, I did it without hesitation.
While I was driving to the store, I realized I had spent the whole year doing things for other people and had taken very little time to myself. After I went to my friend’s house and gave her the things she asked for, I let her know that I needed I break. I still help people, but there are limits. If I do not feel up to doing something, then I will say no without feeling guilty about it.
You are at your 40th high school reunion and are able to see your old classmates talking about the fun times of those years gone by. Occasional laughter and smiles are evidence that they are communicating with those around them, but you hear garbled voices. Back then the hearing and eyesight were as keen as a hawk, although that may be somewhat of an exaggeration, but things don’t work as well after these many years. Have you ever considered a hearing aid? You may have had glasses for a long time to enhance the sense of sight; now it is time to clarify your hearing. Today’s modern hearing aids can be cosmetically appealing and will restore the clarity of voices, concerts, and other important events. With the aid of modern technological advances, some youthful characteristics can be restored to their prior strength and capabilities.
We’re having a garage sale this week, and I’m sure you know what that’s like. It’s time to put a discount dollar figure on priceless items from our families history. I’m not a big “things” person and prefer less clutter, so I actually don’t mind seeing all this stuff being out of the way. There was an odd moment when we were going through everything, as my wife found some old NCR pads from her last job and was a little too attached to them. That’s if you ask me of course. I’m not that big a fan of work, so I can’t imagine having an emotional connection to some random item from a former workplace, let alone an item you’ve let sit in a garage for a few years. There she was doing just that though. I could tell it meant a lot to her, so I let it go.
