Razor Heating can help.

Jeff, Dustin and the team at Razor came very highly recommended to www.TrustedSaskatoon.com ….lets hear what their clients have to say:

 “I had an issue at the house, and I had called a number of HVAC and plumbing companies…nobody was getting back to me at all. Razor was recommended to us, we called in, and they got us scheduled in right away. They were at our house on time (we are out on an acreage), and the best thing was that they had come fully prepared for the work to be done right there and then…the first time! They explained everything that they were going to need to do to fix the problem, and made sure we understood each step, then offered us a few recommendations that could help us in the future. The recommendations they made were honest bits of advice…without a push for a sale. My husband, who is a contractor himself, now does business with Razor on a regular basis. We know we can trust them.”

The most important bit of advice anyone can give to you when it comes to hiring an HVAC contractor is to check their referrals and recommendations. Rest assured that when you choose to contract with Razor Heating and Air Conditioning, you are choosing to deal with a quality business that cares about doing the job right for their customers.

Let’s face it. Nobody actually LIKES cleaning. It’s just something that needs to be done to keep our places from becoming dirty and looking like something on an episode of Hoarders.

 

So how do we make everyone’s least favorite chores a little more fun?

Well, I’ll tell you!


1) Get a friend to help you Cleaning can be quite time consuming and overwhelming if you’re doing it alone. As the old adage goes, the more the merrier…right? So maybe a friend won’t actually help, but a spouse, partner, roommate, or kids are great resources. Divide tasks evenly so everyone knows what to do and will avoid getting in each other’s way. When all hands are on deck, the job will get done quicker. Sure, there may be an IOU for their efforts, but do you really want to spend your Saturday cleaning house alone? I didn’t think so.

 ________________________________________

2) Rock out with your broom out I’m a huge advocate for playing music to get just about anything done. Something about a catchy tune helps me get work done more efficiently. But when it comes to cleaning, I find it especially effective. There’s nothing like dancing around a room, blasting Madonna, and making your vacuum your newest dance partner. Not to mention singing along and working to a beat makes it a little more entertaining than working in complete silence.

 

3) Come on downnnn…to the Clean is Right! If you have someone willing to help you clean, make it fun. Challenge roommates or siblings to see who can clean their room faster. Use a garbage bin as a hoop to toss garbage into. Or you can play ‘What’s Missing’- clean an area and see if someone can guess what’s missing that was there before. Games can be effective to teach young kids how to clean while making it a fun experience, as opposed to a chore. Set a timer and challenge them to pick up as much as they can in a designated time. Be creative…the possibilities are endless! ________________________________________

4) Shape up while you clean up Why not take advantage of the opportunity to get 2 birds with 1 stone? For those of you who love to exercise, or for the ones that can’t get enough time in the day to do it, cleaning can help. Put on your favourite tunes, preferably something with a fast beat, to help you pick up your pace. Tighten your abs and stretch to reach extra-high areas. Making big movements, like doing big circles when cleaning a shower door, will help those arm muscles. Start lunging while vacuuming and it won’t just be your house that’s in tip top shape!

 

5) Break Time To avoid feeling overwhelmed (especially if your house looks anything like mine), take breaks as you clean. Set a timer for 10-15 minutes and rest for a minute or two, drink something or have a snack. Many people tend to get less and less motivated while cleaning so try eating a favorite food, dress up funky, or pretend to be someone else to keep yourself from getting bored or tired and stopping.

 ________________________________________

6) Get someone else to do it The most fun way to clean is by not cleaning at all! If you’ve got way too much on the go or just don’t want to waste precious down time on cleaning, hire in the professionals. It will free up your social calendar so you can enjoy your free time but just be mindful that it will cost you. If money is an issue, look to do professional cleans on an occasional basis and mindfully manage your space in between.

You’ll notice it’s easier to clean in small doses on a daily basis than a big overhaul at the end of the week.

The HairStyle Inn Salons Team had a desire to contribute to the community in which they work and live. So in 2006, in keeping with the Christmas spirit, the inception of TLC@home was born. Their program Touching Lives of Children @ Home has been able to provide a shoebox gift to children at one of participating city schools in Saskatoon for the past 5 years. For the last years they were able to give a Christmas shoebox gift to all the children at Princess Alexander School.

This year, with the help of our community partners, Global TV & Cameco, they will reach 3-4 schools with gift boxes for approximately 600-800 kids, including Princess Alexandra Community School, the original school. They are excited with the growth of the program and are looking to take it to the next level whereby they can set up scholarships and funding that can provide opportunities for these children that they otherwise would not have. They would be delighted if you would like contribute to the T.L.C. @ Home program this year. All contributions, in their entirety, go the children of TLC@home.

They can be dropped off at any of the Canada Safeway locations.

Trusted Saskatoon Automotive Experts share an automotive tip on custom wheels

Trusted Saskatoon Automotive Experts

Here they share a tip and a great FORGESTAR video: 

 

The biggest surprise I get at work every other day (other than walls falling down and welding sparks) is that people have NO clue exactly how much we have access to in terms of import brands and wheel lines. I could write paragraphs on the matter but I'll break it down quick .. you'd have an easier time naming the stuff we CAN'T get. We deal with more brands than I can immediately name .. so I want to bomb off just a few. We can do everything from bolt-on's and accessories to forced induction, fuel upgrades, full suspension tuning (and we have a state of the art alignment machine coming very soon)

We deal with a TON of great names. Greddy, Cusco, Tomei, Agency Power, Cobb, Perrin, KW, Tein, AEM, Haltech, Stoptech, AMS ... oh man I've barely started.. Skunk2, Password JDM, Benen .. I have such a list of Honda stuff it's nuts.. we are a Hondata dealer. We deal with Precision Turbo, Turbonetics, TIAL Sport .. Invida exhaust. Wheels ... too many to list. We have massive buying power. We also deal with high end brands such as Lexani, Forgestar, Watercooled IND, Forgiato, WORK Wheels, Rays/Volk, Advan .. we deal direct with many .. SSR!

I've barely scratched the surface but you get it. 

Enjoy this cool video on the making of Custom Forgestar wheel

How to Choose an Engagement Ring : Part 3- Know your diamonds


 

 

Diamonds tend to be the traditional engagement ring choice, because they are enduring, and match everything. Only deviate from a diamond if you know that your girlfriend loves another stone much, much more, or has voiced her intense dislike of diamonds.

 

When choosing a diamond, be aware of the "Four C's", as follows:

Carat: This refers to the unit measurement of the diamond, and refers to weight (not size). Every carat has 100 points. Engagement rings are often 1 carat but the ring you choose will obviously depend on your budget. A 1 carat ring on a limited budget may not rate very highly in other areas, taking away from its overall beauty.

Color: The color of diamonds varies considerably and most people prefer a very white colored diamond for an engagement ring. Colors are graded from D (colorless and rare) and most good quality diamonds will be around F and H and grades D to I are acceptable to buy as they are almost identical when mounted.

Clarity: Being natural, there will be imperfections in the diamond. The less imperfections, the greater the clarity and the more light is reflected from the diamond, causing it to "sparkle". Naturally, more clarity increases its value. Perfectly flawless diamonds with no internal flaws or surface blemishes are very hard to find as they are extremely rare. Fewer flaws in a diamond result in greater brilliance as more light is reflected. The scale used to grade clarity goes from F1 for a flawless diamond, to VVS1 and VVS2 for very slight inclusions, to VS1 and VS2 for very slight inclusions, SI1 and SI2 for slight inclusions and I1, I2 and I3 for imperfect diamonds. Diamonds are magnified by 10 times to judge their clarity so very slight imperfections are difficult to see with the naked eye. This means that there is a range of diamonds available even for more modest budgets. If you can see a mark without magnification, however, think carefully before you buy. The location and darkness of an imperfection of any given grade (though probably not any "VVS" inclusion, which is simply too small, and rarely a VS inclusion) can affect its visibility so it is safest to see the imperfection magnified or in a magnified photograph before buying.

Cut: There are different ways to cut a diamond, and the type of cut impacts the sparkle of the diamond. The cut that produces the most sparkle is the round (or brilliant) cut, while radiant and princess cuts are good at hiding flaws. Other cuts including square, emerald, pear, marquise, cushion, ssscher, and heart-shaped. The oval shape looks best with larger stones, and looks bigger than the round cut. A high-quality cut (not necessarily above "Ideal") is more important than weight or an extremely high clarity or color grade: a diamond, like a road reflector, shines light back out the direction it came in and breaks it up a bit in the process. If the sides are ground at the wrong angles (sometimes through less-than-perfect workmanship, sometimes to increase weight with extra width or depth) quite a bit of light will not shine back out the right way--much more than would be lost to a very faint yellowish or brown tint or a speck visible under a loupe.

It is also important to base your selection of diamonds based on objective data such as ASET or Idealscope images that you can acquire from your jeweller.This is particularly important if you are buying a diamond engagement ring online.
