See The Possibilities! December 16, 2014 | 11:45 am

Glass is used everywhere: windows, jars, cars, and more! Many people recycle glass jars and bottles used for food and drink but where does it end up? Recycled glass media is created from existing glass then used in manufacturing and construction industries. There are several benefits to recycled versus new glass products. Silica is found in new glass in the form of a fine dust that can stick to worker’s lungs and have negative long term effects. Recycled glass used in the blasting process is silica- free helping people to be healthier and the environment by reusing preexisting items. It also creates a much whiter end product when used in sandblasting. Recycled crushed glass is available for purchase in bulk quantities from various supply companies. Consider using recycled glass in your next blasting project and see the difference in the quality of the finished product; help yourself and the environment!

Basketball Hoop December 2, 2014 | 08:24 am

For the past few years, my children begged me daily for a basketball hoop. I tried over and over again to explain to them that they will be disappointed if they get one for the driveway. I had enough of the begging, so I purchased the basketball hoop. After having it installed in the driveway, I waited. Much to my surprise, they had no problem at all. This entire time I thought that our driveway would be a problem. It turns out that the kids are quite happy with the way the ball bounces on our pea gravel driveway. It adds an extra challenge to their basketball games that they like. Who knew that a smooth basketball court is so overrated? It turns out that my kids will play basketball regardless of where and how it is played. Since they enjoy it so much, I regret not getting them a basketball hoop sooner.

Bringing my music to the world October 31, 2014 | 10:36 am

When I first starting writing music, I was pretty satisfied to just share it with my friend and with those in my local community. As I kept writing music though, I wanted more and more people to hear my music. I decided to start putting my music out there on the internet. This was back in the days of myspace. That is where I got my start.

I decided that I needed a website soon after this though. When i was looking for a good website building program I started using Dreamweaver. My friend Tyson soon told me that there was a much easier website builder though, WordPress.

WordPress is a content management system that makes web design and building a breeze. Worpress is easily the best content manager out there in the market right now. I have now reached many more new fans with my music thanks to WordPress.

Advancing In Life October 29, 2014 | 04:32 am

Most people fear old age but I did not;old age has many perks, the only thing I do not like is wearing a hearing aids Macclesfield. One perk is retirement, I love my career, but I also love that I can now rest after 30 years of teaching. Now I take cruises and road trips when ever I want to. Another thing that I like about old age less stress. I see young people working like dogs to acheive the “American Dream”, I already did. The best thing that old age has to offer is simplicity, I sold my house and downsized, I am a empty nester so I do not need all the space.

In closing, old age is nothing to fear, embrace and deal with as the decades draw near. Enjoy your free time and travel or volunteer, you will enjoy it, I did.

Kinko’s name game October 27, 2014 | 09:25 am

After 30 years of fretting over making his company solvent, selling stuff like NCR books, Kinko’s founder Paul Orfalea retired as chairman of the board.

The irrepressible Orfalea also wanted to set the record straight on one aspect of Kinko’s lore.

That is to say that the Kinko’s name emanated from his nickname.

“I’ve never told anybody this story before,” Orfalea said. “I never told anybody because I just thought of it now.

”This is how I got the nickname.

Orfalea continued: “I had a roadside vegetable stand in Pasadena where we sold corn. I worked my way through college with that vegetable stand. They used to call me Kink Head in college because of my kinky hair; either Kink or Head.

“People would come by the stand and ask, ‘What kind of corn is this?’” Orfalea continued. “We didn’t know. So my friend said this is Kinko’s corn.”

Why I Am So Passionate About Saving The Environment September 11, 2014 | 01:23 am

I have been passionate about protecting the environment ever since I was a little girl. My parents both have degrees in environmental biology, which was one of the reasons that I began doing my part to protect the environment at a young age. I attended environmental fairs and did science fair projects that showed people why it is important to protect the environment.

I have started my first year of college and am following my parents’footsteps by earning a degree in environmental biology. I am learning about silica sand, microorganisms and conservation issues. People have often asked me why I am so passionate about saving the environment. I reply by saying, “Earth is the only place that we have to live, which is why it is very important for us to take care of it.”

The Pleasure of Harold September 3, 2014 | 04:55 am

Hi there, my name is Harold, and I’m bald. Everywhere I go, there is a lot of young children mocking me. They wish to rub my head for luck, and every time I hear their obnoxious giggling, I feel angry. I am only twenty five years old, and I am already balder than my father. I have been considering a FUE hair transplant for over three years. Though the adage says hair today, gone tomorrow, I say Hair Today, there tomorrow. For there is a future filled with hair. Not only filled with hair, but the disappointment of those annoying children when they realize they can no longer see my bald head. The wine of children’s discontent is what propels me to greater heights. The sad look on their face when they can no longer point and laugh. That is the most delicious of nectar. A child’s sadness is my ambrosia.
