Buying Gerber products for the office

I work as a secretary and also a personal assistant to the boss in a major office.

Mainly I answer phones, run errands and make appointments for him.

Sometimes he has me get together office documentation. I have to print papers off, cut and perforate them. Before the office had a standard printer and a do it by hand cutter. I had to line up the giant metal blade to ensure all the papers were the same size. The printer frequently ran out of ink or printed the content lopsided. I would cut the papers at an angle and they would look unprofessional. Most of the work day I would mess with a report that should have taken me 30 minutes. I finally went to my boss and complained. Everything else in the office was all modern and updated, why not the printing supplies? My boss gave me the greenlight and allowed me to pick out the office printing equipment. I decided to go with all Gerber products. I bought the Gerber laser printer and the Gerber M-Series flatbed cutter. Both Gerber products are efficient, effective and intense. I feel like I should be printing and cutting more than office documents. The machines are giant and so professional looking. Before I used to dread when my boss had things printing wise that he needed. Now I am desperate to print and use that cutter. I feel so cool and professional now. The ink is always clear, angled perfect and the papers are cut to the direction that I want them in.

Getting a label maker for wine business

My brother has opened up a winery in our home town and has slowly grown business overtime.

First he was doing wine with my father in our basement.

Then it escalated into a small workshop right on the grape fields. Currently, my brother is operating out of a big facility and everything is above board. One of the oddest things is the label for the wine bottle. There is certain information that is required by law to be on the bottle in a certain place. The label has to contain the alcohol content and my brother can’t just call it wine. He has to be specify that he sweetens his product with agave rather than sugar. The actual label printing was a mess as well. At first he just ordered the labels in bulk from a printing corporation. They were on a big role that you peel and place on the bottles. My whole family worked together labeling, burning the caps onto the bottle, cleaning them and packaging them in boxes. The longest part of the process was the peeling of the label and lining up correctly. We figured out that the printing business skimped out on materials. The labels were an inferior product and hard to remove from the roll. My brother thankfully has upgraded and has an actual label maker. The Arrow Echo 300 Roll to Roll Label Cutter does it all in one machine. The machine cuts the labels and has them ready to immediately place on the bottle. The labels are all the same size and of higher quality. We also don’t have to stop production and wait for labels anymore.

Both of us need the air conditioning systems

Mom and I have typically been best friends, but mom died when I was 17 and I decided I would stay with Mom until he got remarried! Someone has to look after him, however well, he never did meet anyone else who was marriage material; I guess no one else can compare to Mom.

So now, he and I live together, then not that that is a problem.

I’m completely gratified just taking care of our father… Recently, we moved to the south. It’s amazing how much the weather conditions can change in a short distance, then both of us are used to the chilly snowy Winters & mild Summers of the north. It’s quite a bit weird here in the south! The summers are so much warmer that is for sure. The temperatures reach up into the low hundreds while in June and that is not something either of us were prepared for. Both of us brought one of those window a/c units from our old apartment and both our father and I thought that would be enough. It really was not. Both of us live in a nice cozy little house, however, it’s so warm here that one window a/c equipment simply cannot keep up with all the heat from outside. I method to get at least one more equipment for the dining room of the home. This would make the apartment a little bit more livable. I might even get an extra a/c equipment for our Mom’s dining room as well! He doesn’t care about to complain even though I don’t assume he gets a lot of chilly air from the one that is in our room currently. I wonder if anybody offers a buy-one-get-one-free discount.

Ductless heat pump solves temperature control in work shed

The system was fairly expensive to purchase, but I managed to install it myself

I often refinish old furniture as a hobby in my spare time. I visit local flea markets, garage sales, estate sales and antique stores and find sturdy, hardwood furniture for very low prices. These pieces have typically been painted over many times, are missing hardware or damaged in some way. I enjoy stripping the paint and uncovering the original woodgrain. I like making these pieces beautiful and useful again. I’ve recently started reselling the furniture and making a tidy profit. I decided I needed a dedicated space where I could work on the furniture all year round, no matter the weather. The dust, fumes and noise I create don’t allow me to work inside the house. I ended up building a small shed in the backyard. It was easy to run electric to the shed but I had some difficulty determining how to handle temperature control. I was unwilling to invest a ton of money into heating and cooling a shed. I didn’t have a great deal of room to accommodate bulky equipment and whatever I chose needed to run on electricity. After quite a bit of research, I came across ductless heat pumps. A ductless unit is comprised of a fairly compact outdoor compressor and a very streamlined and lightweight indoor air handler. The two components are connected by a conduit that requires a three-inch hole in an exterior wall. The system was fairly expensive to purchase, but I managed to install it myself. It provides both heating and cooling and effectively dehumidifies and filters out contaminants. It runs silently and is exceptionally energy efficient.

High velocity heating & cooling is ideal for older home

With winter fast approaching, I wanted to make some improvements to my methods of heating my home.

I have an older home that has high ceilings, older plaster walls, big windows and no ductwork.

These issues make it very difficult to install any type of central heating or cooling system without major upheaval. I really hoped to avoid tearing down walls and getting involved in a big, messy and expensive remodeling project. However, trying to combat temperatures down to twenty below zero with a bunch of space heaters is impossible. I was tired of nearly freezing to death every winter and dealing with window air conditioners in the summer. I called a local HVAC contractor, explained my situation and asked for some advice. He recommended a high-velocity heating and cooling system. I was not familiar with this type of temperature control. The contractor explained that high-velocity HVAC utilizes flexible ducts that are only around three inches in diameter. These mini ducts can be snaked into existing walls and routed around obstacles such as studs and water pipes without causing damage. They connect to very small diameter vents that are available in a wide range of styles and finishes to accommodate nearly any decor. The vents can be located just about anywhere. The ducts are insulated to minimize sound levels and the speed of airflow utilizes aspiration to quickly mix new and existing air. This allows the high velocity system to raise or lower temperature very quickly. Because the equipment doesn’t need to run all that long, it uses less energy and keeps costs low. I’m hoping to have a high velocity heating and cooling system installed before winter.

Allergies are making me itchy and I want it to stop

Allergies this year are horrible in the area where I live.

I think it’s pollen or leaf mold, but whatever it is, it’s making me absolutely miserable.

I feel like I’m itching to death sometimes and the allergy medication that I’m taking isn’t really helping me much at all. I went to the doctor but they weren’t really able to help me either. Actually, my doctor mentioned to me that I might want to call my local HVAC company and talk to them about something that I can do at home to help with my allergies since the medications aren’t working that well. I called my local HVAC company and they said that there are several things that they would suggest to help with my allergy issues. The first thing they said to do was to change out all of my air filters for some new, allergen reducing air filters. That usually helps people like me with allergy problems. Next, the HVAC technician that I talked to suggested that we have our entire ventilation system including all of the ductwork and the vents and registers professionally cleaned by a heating and cooling company. They have special tools for cleaning out ductwork that regular homeowners like me just don’t have. And last but not least, they said that if my allergies don’t subside soon with those suggestions, I should try installing a whole home air purification system. A whole home air purification system will get rid of dust mites and other impurities that regular anti allergen air filters might end up missing.

My mom and I found a big surprise in the air ducts in her apartment

My mom moved into a new apartment building a couple of months ago.

When I went over to her place to help her clean everything up before she moved in, I didn’t really know what I was in for.

The place was really a big mess and I couldn’t believe that the previous tenants had left it in such bad shape. My mom said that they seemed like they had been in a hurry when they left, and so we just started cleaning. One of the last things we did after wiping down and mopping the whole apartment was so sweep out and vacuum all of the air vents, air registers, and overhead ductwork in the place. My mom is paranoid about breathing in dust and other debris that the previous tenants might have left behind. So as she went around and unscrewed all of the air register covers, I went along behind her with the vacuum attachment and sucked out all of the dust and dirt from inside the ductwork. Inside the air vent in the hallway, the vacuum made a weird thunk sound and it stopped working. I unplugged it and looked to see what was clogging it up. I couldn’t believe my eyes, but there was a giant gold nugget half the size of my fist clogging up the hose on the vacuum! Apparently, the previous tenants had been hoarding gold in their air vents! No wonder they were in a hurry to leave. We figured that they were probably involved in some criminal activity or something. Otherwise, they would definitely have stopped to get their gold out of the apartment’s ductwork.

Kate Beckingsale looks unfairly good

My boyfriend showed me a video online recently of Kate Beckingsale working out.

She is 46 years old and is built like she is 20. Every part of her body is toned, tight and just gorgeous. I think my boyfriend was wondering how she can be built so much better than me. I’m sure the actress works out really hard, but she does have a few unfair advantages over me. Money makes a big difference in how you look. Kate probably gets her hair professionally done, teeth whitened and has the best clothes. I guarantee she has a personal trainer too. I bet the fitness expert only works with her and does it everyday. There is no way she has to wait in line to go to the gym and just does whatever she feels like. I would not be surprised if there were a whole crew of fitness experts dedicated to making her look good. I bet there is a weekly schedule on what exercises she does and for how long. I also would not be shocked if she works out more than once a day. Of course she has a nutritionist with a diet plan as well. I bet everything she eats is closely monitored and looked after. She is meant to burn fat, tone muscle and not bloat at all. How can I compete with this? I work a full time job and take care of three kids. I don’t have time to work out everyday, more than once. I also just do a short run and I eat whatever I happen to have in the fridge.

Dad plus I have consistently been best friends, however mom died when I was 17 plus I decided I would stay with Dad until he got remarried, however someone has to look after him, but well, he never did meet anyone else who was marriage material, i think no a single else can compare to Mom.

The temperatures reach up into the low hundreds while in September plus that has not something either of us were prepared for. The people I was with and I brought a single of those window air conditioner units from our old condo plus both my father plus I thought that would be enough. It absolutely was not. The people I was with and I live in a nice cozy little house, however, it’s so moderate here that a single window air conditioner device simply cannot keep up with all the heat from outside. I method to get at least a single more device for the home office of the home. This would make the condo a little bit more livable. I might even get an extra air conditioner device for my dad’s home office as well, and he does not care about to complain but I do not suppose he gets a lot of chilly air from the a single that has in my room currently. I wonder if anybody offers a buy-one-get-one-free discount.
