They say that the grass is always greener on the other side. If you find that, then it is likely that you are simply not looking after your lawn properly. In fact, go have a chat with your neighbor “on the other side” and they will probably tell you that they have a professional lawn care service to help them, and that they only use organic materials.

Things to Take Care of Before Retirement

When it comes to your golden years, there are a lot of things you’ll want taken care of in advance. After all, this is the tenet upon which the concept of the retirement fund is predicated. Because, if I may speak bluntly, you just can’t do quite as much when you get old. And, although society doesn’t always agree with me, senior citizens should be treated with respect and dignity. After all, just by virtue of having survived the many hardships that the world has to offer, I would say that seniors have earned that much. So, you’ll want to…

2017 Gift Guide for your College Bound Grandchild

As most grandparents will know, once your grandchild gets to be over the age of 16, present buying can be a tricky affair.

Some grandparents opt to take the easy way out and simply send money or a gift card, but I have never been a fan of that kind of gift.

The Amazing Benefits of Saunas 

A sauna is a room or a smaller house designed as a place to experience dry or wet heat sessions or sometimes called heat baths. Saunas used to use an open fire, but a sauna manufacturer today will use an electric heater to heat stones. These stones produce a dry heat to warm the room to temperatures usually about 176°F/80°C although some saunas will go over 212°F/100°C. Water is thrown over the hot stones creating moisture in the air and allowing the room’s occupants to remain relatively comfortable in this level of heat. A sauna session is usually a social…

How to Support Your Family Member With Cancer

Last year my Mum was diagnosed with breast cancer and as  part of her treatment she had to have a breast cancer lumpectomy which saw the doctors remove the tumor and part of her breast in the hope of stopping it in its tracks.
