At least here in Florida--and it's  coming soon worldwide to the northern hemisphere. Hurricane season starts here in F-L-A in a week and three words come to mind: West equine virus. Every little toy, every pool float with a drink receptacle; any and everything that can hold water is a potential mosquito farm. If only they could be sold at the local farmers market.

I Don't Need a Website

Back in the day if you were to ask a business owner why they were putting an ad in The Yellow Pages, the typical response one might get is “because all of my competitors are so why shouldn’t I?”

Salt Pool Blamed for Plaster Cracking and Nodules

When a new white quartz pool in San Diego developed numerous shrinkage cracks and very rough and sharp calcium nodules everywhere, the plasterer drained the pool and sanded it, charging the pool owner one thousand dollars for the work. The crystalline nodules began to form again soon afterwards, so the plasterer told the pool owner that a pool plastering expert and consultant would perform an inspection to determine the cause.  The plaster inspector was also a long-time National Plasterers…
