Oven Repair at Any Hour

By on November 11, 2017

With the holidays fast approaching and a great many families having company for traditional and huge meals, that would certainly be no time for your oven to go “on the fritz” whether it shut off while you were cooking, stopped heating properly, or any other problem.

Where do you turn when something like that happens? You can have peace of mind knowing that a service exists that is available 365 days and nights a year, which means also on weekends and holidays.

Before any repair, the skilled service technician will first employ troubleshooting measures to determine the extent of service needed. Then you are given a quote for the cost of the repairs, and the work will not be performed unless you approve that quote. Keeping a variety of parts on all of the service vehicles, hopefully the issue can be resolved at the time of that visit so that the time needed to repair your oven will be immediate and you will not have to wait for a future visit and can breathe easy that you are able to prepare that holiday meal after all.

Repairing and regular maintenance of your oven also prolong its lifespan, keeps it in good working order, and usually helps avoid what could be costly repairs. A professional service is required, however, to replace parts that eventually wear out.

Let the Celebrations Begin: Organizing a Wedding Get Together

By on October 30, 2017

It’s the greatest day in anyone’s life, and you only get one chance to get it right. Although quiet, low-key weddings are always popular, the majority of weddings require a lot of planning. One of the biggest decisions is the choice of the venue. For some couples (those with a lifelong connection to a particular church, for instance) it is easy. For others, it is a matter of weighing up a tangle of possibilities.

Budget

Like it or not, the first thing you have to do is to set a budget for your wedding, and include in that the maximum figure that you can allow for the venue. It is a fact of life that there will always be somewhere you really like that is just above your budget and you will always persuade yourself that it is affordable. But if you can only afford $5,000 there is no point in even considering that dream venue that will cost you $8,000.

Prioritize

List all the features that are important to you. This will include such things as:

  • We all have a dream location in mind. Try to be clear about what appeals to you: religious or secular, urban or rural, grand or homely, etc.
  • Will the venue be suitable for your guests as well as you? A city venue will make it easier for guests to travel and find accommodation. In Baltimore, for instance, a hotel like the Marriott Baltimore can provide accommodation for guests as well as host the wedding.
  • Have you already decided a definite number of guests, or can you adjust numbers to fit? You don’t want to rattle around in a hall that is too big, or risk offending people by leaving them off the guest list.

Research and Compare

Make a spreadsheet or chart listing all the factors you are looking for along the top and the possible venues down the side. Look here for an example. Conduct your initial research online, giving each venue a score for how closely it matches your requirements. To be super efficient, give each factor a weighting value and multiply the value and score together.

Draw up a shortlist of venues to visit. Have a detailed list of questions to ask the management. Remember to ask about how the flow of the different stages of the day will be managed in the available space. Revise these scores based on what you have now seen.

Ensure that you know exactly what is included in the quoted price. You need to compare like with like when it comes to the financial commitment. Be quite clear about whether you have to use the venue’s own caterers or are free to bring in your own choice.

The Crucial Moment

Signing the contract with the venue is one of the biggest steps you will take on the way to your wedding. It’s a scary but exciting moment. Plan carefully and you need never regret your choice.

Vintage Wedding Anniversary Celebration

By on October 20, 2017

There was one occasion when I overheard a young man commenting to his grandpa that Facebook is now mostly used by the older generations and the younger generation has moved on to Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, etc. This young man was helping his grandpa to update some app onto his grandpa’s smartphone. Thank God for this young man who is so patient and so willing to teach his grandpa how to use the smartphone and also how to search for his old schoolmates and friends through Facebook.

Looks like many of the older generation were taught by their grandkids how to use smartphone to get in contact with their friends. It is usually the grandkids that will be the ones who are showing their grandparents how to use these modern gadgets because they are most times more high tech than their parents.

It is a wonderful thing that many of the older folks are willing to learn new things. Learning how to use smartphones and Facebook enables them to get connected to their friends and families from all over the world. It keeps them from boredom and gives them something to look forward to. Many have children and grandchildren staying far away and they can still stay updated and able to see and chat with their loved ones using the smartphones. They get reconnected with long lost friends, some through their children with Facebook accounts and found so much joy through this e-media.

I came to know of a beautiful couple who have children staying in the states, Australia, and Asian countries. The couple themselves have worked in many places and have many friends locally and from overseas. Recently, the children wanted to bless their parents by organizing a gathering of family members and some very close friends from near and far to celebrate their parents’ wedding anniversary.  It was to be a surprise for their parents and all correspondence was kept secret.

The venue for the celebration was chosen and their granddaughter did all the planning and preparation through vintage wedding rentals Los Angeles without the knowledge of her grandparents. Hotels were booked for their overseas guests and those from afar who were able to fly over to join in the celebration and air tickets were booked and sent to their guests.

For the vintage wedding anniversary, placement for a vintage chair and table rentals were made. Menu for the celebration was confirmed with the caterer and a wedding anniversary cake was ordered. As the overseas family and friends arrived, you can imagine the great joy experienced by the old couple. It was a beautiful celebration to be remembered for many years.
