If you watch any home and garden show, you will hear that most of the hosts will say that you always get your money back in a home’s kitchen or the bathroom. Most people think that the way to add value to a home is by adding more space or just by painting, but the painting will not show an updated home if there is really old appliances in the kitchen or a terrible shower stall in the bathroom. People will go and get a shower replacement in Queens NY and that means that they are looking to improve their bathroom. (more…)
We took a road trip. Our plan was to buy an RV and go traveling. We decided to stay in budget motels instead. We had a fabulous time over the winter and into the early summer. We were home for a couple of months when we had to call for bed bug removal in NYC. Somewhere on our trip staying at one of the budget motels we picked up the critters and brought them home with us. The experts in bed bugs said they probably came home in our luggage on our clothes. Is that creepy or what?
I was surprised to have bites after we were home and not while on the road. We actually were trying to be careful about that. We brought and washed our own linens. That is probably how they hitched a ride. We would put the dirty linens in a mesh laundry bag, stop at a laundromat, wash them and then put them on the bed at the next hotel. (more…)

Sleep Innovations three new mattress collections
Sleep Innovations – The Sleep Collection
The Sleep Collection has been split into two mattress designs. The first is the 2 Layer Suretemp Memory Foam Mattress. This mattress has a two-layer construction, the base foam layer, and the comfort layer. The foam technology used has strengthened walls. This provides more support and improved airflow through the mattress. The breathability makes it great in all seasons, it cools in the hotter months and retains heat in the cooler months. The durability of this mattress design is fantastic. The second mattress in this Sleep collection is the 3 Layer Gel Memory Foam Mattress. It has a base foam layer, an air chamber foam, and a comfort gel memory foam layer. The base memory foam provides excellent support and durability, the middle air foam chamber enables up to 12x more air circulation than standard memory foam, and the gel memory foam adds extra comfort. The gel memory foam shapes your body’s contours, providing superior support where your body needs it, whilst giving up most of comfort.
This Sleep collection has been designed to give people a quality mattress at an affordable price. A great night’s sleep should not only be a luxury for the super-rich. This range has great quality materials and manufacturing techniques.
Sleep Innovations – The Customwave Collection
This is the intermediate range of mattresses by Sleep Innovations. This range continues on the technology in the Sleep Collection range. It is based around the Customwave technology which has been patented… This technology is a contoured design that has been designed for maximum comfort, increased airflow which ensures an optimum sleeping temperature. This extra comfort and support should bring a far superior sleeping experience, but it is more expensive than the Sleep Collection Range.
Sleep Innovations – The Customflex Collection
This is Sleep Innovations premium collection. Nothing has been compromised with the creation of these mattresses. Only the finest materials and most advanced technologies are used in their construction. Above the core layer is the Customflex foam layer. This layer has specially formed fins that are designed to compress and react differently to each sleeper.
It will appeal to people who truly make their health and wellbeing their priority. The technology offers therapeutic grade support and positions the body to ensure correct spinal positions.
These are obviously the most expensive mattresses offered by Sleep Innovations, but the quality is simply unrivaled.

Sleep Innovations 12 inch Sure Temp Memory Foam Mattress Therapeutic Support
The idea of having a therapeutic mattress often leaves people with a feeling of dread. They naturally think that sleeping on a rock-hard mattress is required to sort out their ailments. This is simply not the case with the SureTemp design. Sleep Innovations have proved you can have a dreamy night’s sleep, with the therapeutic support required allowing you to awake ready for the day ahead. At the heart of the mattress is a 9.5” layer of high-density support foam. This provides overall body support, that holds your body in the correct position whilst sleeping. To make the mattress as luxurious and comfortable as possible there is a 2.5” layer of SureTemp Memory Foam. This layer provides a medium soft-medium firm feel, which creates the perfect sleeping environment.
What is special about SureTemp memory foam?
We have already mentioned the comfort that the SureTemp memory foam layer provides but it also has another great feature. Traditionally, memory foam is known to make you hot. Your body finds it hard to regulate its temperature, which makes it rise and disturbs your sleep pattern. The SureTemp memory foam has open cell technology. This technology allows more airflow through the memory foam, which leads to better temperature control. When the body is hot it will make it easier for the hot air to disperse, and when the body is cold, it will retain heat.
Owners of the Sleep Innovations 12 inch Sure Temp Memory Foam Mattress say it carries out this process very well, and they do not suffer from the overheating normally associated with memory foam.
SureTemp memory foam Sizes
This memory foam mattress is available in a full range of sizes. It is available in twin, full, queen, king, and California king sizes. All are delivered vacuum packed for easy handling. Simply unpack in position and the mattress will expand into its normal size and shape.

The price of this mattress is much less than the other recognized premium brands, but that does not mean a lack of quality. Amazon sells this mattress with over a 70% discount on the RRP, which makes it an amazing buy. This mattress is fully assembled in the USA. High-quality materials, manufactured and assembled here in the USA under strict guidelines, compared to other mattresses, massed produced in faraway countries.
What company would offer a 20-year warranty with its product, if it did not believe in its products? None. But Sleep Innovations stand by their mattresses and a 20-year warranty is what you get.
The Sleep Innovations 12 inch Sure Temp Memory Foam Mattress is a fantastic mattress at a great price. It is priced much lower than other premium brands on the market. It might not have all of the features of some of the most expensive, but at this price, it is one we highly recommend thinking about. The hundreds of positive reviews from its owners make us think that it is a premium memory foam mattress without the premium price tag.
Ultimate Dreams Crazy Quilt Pillow Top Mattress Review
This mattress is a foam mattress with a pillow top for increased comfort. It is a large mattress which is very thick. The Twin is 11 inches thick, and the California King is a whopping 18 inches thick, with all the other sizes in between.
The foam is what Ultimate Dreams are calling Tri-Zone. This has been designed to offer the required support to the different areas of the body, i.e Neck, Lumbar, and Leg. As well as great support this design reduces any motion transfer between sleeping individuals. The first reports are very good, and that this design works well.
To enhance the comfort of the foam base this mattress has a pillow top. This contours and holds the body. It is said to be “not too soft”, but improve the feel of the foam. It makes the bed firm but soft at the same time. All current owners are saying how comfortable the bed is.
Two great points about the manufacturing of this Ultimate Dreams Crazy Quilt Pillow Top Mattress are
- Is entirely made in the USA with US-made components. I think it is great that a company takes pride in providing work for the US instead of buying in from abroad
- All the foams used in manufacturing are CertiPUR certified. This means no harmful chemicals are used, and no nasty smells will be released from the mattress once unwrapped.
Owners Comments about the Ultimate Dreams Crazy Quilt Pillow Top Mattress
I just received this mattress today it was easy to open, and puffed up right away after removing the plastic its good for an extra bed, it is comfortable, it may be too soft for some people, But remember it is a foam mattress, not a coil, so it would be softer, it is worth the price & its made in the USA that is a plus!
My husband and I really love this mattress. It is firm and soft at the same time. We are both larger people and both sleep comfortably on a queen size. Very good product. Two thumbs up. 🙂
Sleep Innovations Cool Contour Memory Foam Pillow Review
When upgrading a bedroom or bed, people focus on mattresses and neglect the search for the correct pillow. A pillow can have a huge impact in a positive or negative manner on your sleep. Not here at PB Luxury Bedrooms. We give you the low down on all aspects of the bedroom to ensure, everything is as perfect as it can be. In this review, we are focusing on the Sleep innovations Cool Contour Memory Foam Pillow.
As its title suggests, it is a memory foam pillow. It is constructed from two layers of memory foam. The base layer is Sleep Innovations SureTemp memory foam. This is highly breathable memory foam, increasing airflow, reducing the risk of any heat build-up. This memory foam is also extremely strong, ensuring a long-lasting product.
Sleep Innovations Cool Contour Memory Foam Pillow Materials
The top comfort layer of foam is Sleep Innovations Cool Flow memory foam. This is designed to pull heat away from the surface of the pillow. This again increases the removal of heat away from your head. This can be one of the biggest reasons for disturbed sleep. Both of these foams are encased in a super comfy machine washable cover.
This Sleep Innovations Cool Contour Memory Foam Pillow has been designed for people who sleep on their sides or back. The specifically designed shape holds the neck and shoulders in the perfect position for great spinal alignment. This combined with the right mattress, gives complete posture control whilst sleeping, from the head down the neck, shoulders, spine, and hips. You should feel no aches or pains. This would accompany the Sleep Innovations SureTemp Mattress perfectly.
There are hundreds of positive reviews from users, all stating how comfortable it is, and how neck and shoulder pain has gone. There are a few negative comments, mainly being about the smell that the pillows suffer from. In comparison with the positive reviews, this is only a small number, but worth mentioning.
Knowing that everyone is different and has different preferences, this Sleep Innovations Cool Contour Memory Foam Pillow has been given slightly different lofts on either side. This should ensure a comfortable position for everyone.
As with all Sleep Innovations products, they are proudly made in the USA. With this pillow Sleep Innovations provide a five-year warranty against manufacturer defects. This is above the standard of most manufacturers who only offer three-year warranties.
Having checked online, the best deal I can find on this Sleep Innovations Cool Contour Memory Foam Pillow is through wayfair.com.

Signature Sleep Contour 8 Inch Mattress Review
Today we are reviewing the Signature Sleep Contour 8 Inch Mattress. When looking for a new mattress, getting the best value for your hard-earned money is always a must, especially with the economy the way it is. If you are looking for great value for money you should give this Signature Sleep Contour 8 Inch Mattress some serious consideration. It remains one of the best sellers on the internet across many websites, with over 90% of owners being highly satisfied. The great price, being extremely comfy, and free delivery make it the first choice for many. It is supplied in sizes twin, Full, Queen, and King.
There are many features that have enabled Signature Sleep to create a comfortable mattress at an affordable price for everyone. You can continue reading for our full review, or if you are just looking for the best price, head on over to Amazon.com for their best offers.
Firstly here is a shortlist of the main features:
- Independently, superbly pocketed 15-gauge pocket coils
- Quality foam and polyester layering between cover and coils for optimal comfort
- Mattress comes compressed and rolled for easy shipping
- Independently encased coils provide an equal weight distribution by contouring the curves of your body, hence relieving pressure points along your neck, shoulders, back, and hips
- Mattress comes compressed and rolled for easy shipping and cannot be used for up to 48 hours to allow it to expand to its full size
The backbone of this mattress, and the part that offers all the vital support, is the coil system. All of the coils are independent of each other, and this is the key. Not only are the coils all individual, but they are constructed from extremely high gauge steel, which ensures a great lifespan to the mattress. Older style mattresses where all the coils are manufactures from one long piece of steel do not work as well. On these types of mattresses, pressure on one coil will naturally affect other coils, because they are all connected.
This Signature Sleep mattress is far super in design. Because all of the springs being individual, and in their own pockets, they work completely on their own. This means that better support is provided along your body. Your hips, spine, and neck are all held in a more natural position.
After the support comes to comfort. It is pointless having a mattress that is technically great for your body, but that uncomfortable you cannot sleep on it. This Signature Sleep Contour 8 Inch mattress has been given two layers to provide you with great comfort. Between the coils and the quilted cover are a polyester layer and a high-quality foam layer. These layers allow the springs to support you without feeling them, which is the key to comfort.
Unlike many new mattresses which are side specific, the Signature Sleep Contour 8 inch mattress is fully symmetrical on top and bottom. This means that this mattress is flippable if you should desire to do so.
Delivery of the Signature Sleep mattress is provided free of charge. To help keep the costs of delivery down, and easier, the mattress is delivered vacuum packed and rolled. This also makes it easier for you to place in position before you open. Although the mattress almost expands to its full size immediately and can be used, in some cases a guide of 48 hours is recommended before the mattress has reached its full size. The short video below shows just how simple it is
At the time of writing, there are over 3000 customer reviews for the Signature Sleep Contour 8 Inch mattress, and the average score is 4.5 stars out of 5. For such a low price mattress this is simply a fantastic review score, all left by real owners. It just proves that a quality product can be produced for a reasonable price. Owners have reported great comfort for small children, up to fully grown adults. There really is fantastic praise for this mattress. You can read the reviews here
As you can probably tell, we rate the Signature Sleep Contour 8 Inch mattress very highly. It is a great performer, it is suitable for all age groups and sizes, and finally the price is affordable for everyone. If you do have the budget and finances for a more expensive mattresses, there are other mattresses that might offer you more options, but you will be hard to pressed to find better value for money elsewhere.

Sleep Innovations 12 Inch Gel Swirl Memory Foam Mattress Review
This Sleep Innovations 12 Inch Gel Swirl Memory Foam Mattress is the first of the Sleep Innovations range which incorporates the gel memory foam in its manufacture. Other manufacturers have been using gel memory foam for a while but Sleep Innovations delayed. Why? I don’t know, but now they have finally released their mattress, they have got it to spot on.
This memory foam mattress is 12 inches thick. It is built up using three different layers of foam. The bottom layer is 8 inches of high-density support foam and creates the base for the rest of the mattress to be built on. The middle layer is 2 inches of air channel foam. The airflow through this section improves the cooling of the mattress. And the top layer is the 2 inches of gel-infused memory foam, the latest technology in keeping memory foam mattresses cool.
Who is this Sleep Innovations 12 Inch Gel Swirl Memory Foam Mattress For?
The idea of the gel-infused memory foam is to reduce heat issues. Traditional memory foam is well known to create a warm sleeping environment. Many people have found it too warm and have had to alter their sleeping conditions (keeping bedroom windows open, using thinner duvets). If you are a warm sleeper then this option could be a great choice for you. Many owners have reported that the cooling effect works very efficiently. If you do not have any problems with getting hot at night then another choice might be the Sleep Innovations 12 Inch Memory Foam Mattress.
How Firm is the Sleep Innovations 12-Inch Gel Swirl Memory Foam Mattress
Sleep Innovations have given this mattress a rating of medium/firm. On inspection, this may be a little underrated. This Sleep Innovations 12 Inch Gel Swirl Memory Foam Mattress is definitely on the firm side. If you are looking for a soft mattress then this is not the choice for you. Owners that have left reviews mention that the mattress is firmer than expected, but all have experienced a great night’s sleep. All reviews have been four and five stars. The support provided gives correct spinal alignment, which relieves any stresses and provides a therapeutic night’s sleep. It may be time to try a firmer mattress, if you are not sleeping well, or are waking with an aching back.
Made In The USA
Many of us are becoming conscious of where the things we buy are made. Especially items where build quality is a high concern. You will be pleased to know that this Sleep Innovations 12-Inch Gel Swirl Memory Foam Mattress is proudly made in the USA, as are all Sleep Innovations products.
People who have bought this Sleep Innovations 12 Inch Gel Swirl Memory Foam Mattress and have left reviews are all very happy with their purchase. As mentioned earlier, this has received high ratings, and at the time of writing is averaging a 4.9-star review. Nearly everyone has said that the mattress is harder than expected, but not with a loss of quality of sleep. One owner has said that this had made them realize that they have been sleeping on a mattress far too soft, previous to this.
No more back pains, no more hip pains, just a great night’s sleep.
The only issue reported is the odor upon opening. As with all memory foam mattresses, this can be an issue but will disperse quickly. Not everyone with this mattress has reported it as a problem, but worth mentioning.

Where to buy the Sleep Innovations 12-Inch Gel Swirl Memory Foam Mattress
The best place to buy this Sleep Innovations 12 Inch Gel Swirl Memory Foam Mattress is simply online. I have checked and Amazon is offering the best deal. Over a 35% saving on the RRP across all the sizes, and they will send to you free of charge, which is always nice.
Sleep Innovations 14 Inch Memory Foam Mattress Review
The Sleep Innovations 14 Inch Memory Foam Mattress is the newest addition to the Sleep Innovations range. Until this mattress, the largest was 12 inches in thickness. The extra thickness comes from the third layer of memory foam. All the other mattresses only had two layers. Here, we hope to give you the information to decide whether the extra inches and cost are worth it to you. You can be sure of a great deal online. Amazon is offering this mattress with over a 35% discount and free shipping.
This Sleep Innovations mattress has three layers. Starting at the bottom is the base support foam. This is a high-density foam that provides a solid platform for the mattress to evolve around. It ultimately is the backbone of the mattress. It is extremely high quality, which ensures many years of untroubled use. The middle layer is the extra addition over the 12-inch models. This is a 2.5-inch layer of air channel foam. This enhances the airflow through the mattress and aids the cooling issues normally associated with memory foam. The top layer is the same as the other mattresses, the sure temp memory foam, 2.5 inches in thickness.
The construction has been designing to continually hold its shape, with no dipping or sagging. The great thing about this is that this Sleep Innovations 14 Inch Memory Foam Mattress never needs to be flipped. This is a massive relief because at 14 inches thick it isn’t exactly the lightest. The twin weighs 54 lbs and the king size is 112 lbs, with the other sizes in between.
The great thing about memory foam is that it molds and comforts, but at the same time supports you where you need it. Relieving pressure points and giving correct spinal alignment while sleeping. You can rest assured that you will awake to feel refreshed and rejuvenated.
As with all Sleep Innovations products you know that they are lovingly made in the USA and this mattress carries a 20-year warranty.
Sleep Innovations advertise this mattress as being medium soft. However, current owners have reported that this Sleep Innovations mattress feels on the firm side. Not in a negative manner, however. A great night’s sleep was still reported. It might just be a case of a brand new mattress settling in, but worth mentioning. There have not been any heat-related problems reported. It would seem that the layer of air channel foam does its job well.
As with all memory foam mattresses, an odor was reported on opening, but nothing major, and it dispersed quickly.

Electrical Nerve and Muscle Stimulation for Herniated Disc
A herniated disc (also known as a slipped disc, or bulging disc) is when there is a rupture in the outer layer of the cushions (discs) between the vertebrae. The discs have a softer inner core like a jelly-filled donut. Sometimes due to injury or simply wear and tear, the tough, outer “skin” of the disc will develop a crack, and then the gelatinous center leaks out. This can irritate nearby nerves and cause searing pain.
Most herniated discs occur between the ages of 30 and 50 and are due to the effects of aging. After the age of 50, however, there is less fluid in the discs, so herniated discs are less common.
In most cases, herniated discs will heal on their own, given enough time. Unfortunately, the extreme pain that is experienced during that period of time can be debilitating. Electrical Nerve Stimulation is a non-invasive treatment option that avoids the risks of surgery and the side effects of medication.
What is Electrical Nerve Stimulation?
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation administers low-level electrical currents to the herniated disc area. This is accomplished by placing the electrodes that carry the current directly on the skin, or just under the skin via a small incision. The patient usually experiences little or no pain but may experience a tingling sensation. Typically, this treatment is administered by a machine called a TENS device. The scientific principle that enables this treatment to work has yet to be fully defined, and it doesn’t produce pain relief in all clients.
TrueTESLA Electrical Nerve and Muscle Stimulation
Because of the limitations of a typical TENS device, the Back Pain and Herniated Disc Treatment Centers offer a unique treatment called TrueTESLA Electric Nerve and Muscle Stimulation. This procedure surpasses the results of a TENS device by increasing the voltage while maintaining low amperage of the electrical current. Consequently, not only is back pain blocked, but it stimulates muscle fibers as well.
The improved function of TrueTESLA Electrical Nerve and Muscle Stimulation allows us to treat even advanced cases of herniated disc back pain– without drugs or surgery.
Other benefits that exceed the typical TENS machine treatment include increased blood circulation (this facilitates natural healing), easing of muscle spasms, improved range of motion, prevention of atrophy due to muscle disuse, and muscle re-education (reacclimating the muscles to the way they functioned before the herniated disc occurred.)
The benefits are twofold: TrueTESLA technology supports and enhances the body’s natural healing ability while reducing severe pain.
Is It Time for a New Mattress?
Getting a full night’s rest is one of the tenets of a healthy lifestyle, so purchasing the right mattress will be among the most important investments you will ever make. If you’re currently dissatisfied with how you are sleeping, examining your mattress can be crucial to improving you are well being. The following are some basic questions you should ask if you are wondering if it’s time for a new mattress.
How old is your mattress? Typically, the average mattress lasts about 5 to 7 years depending on the quality of the mattress, your lifestyle, and sleeping habits. So if it’s been over a decade (or two) since you invested in a new mattress, it is definitely time to start anew.
How are you sleeping? Do you consistently wake up in the middle of the night? Are you sore in the morning or feel stiff? Poor circulation and tossing and turning are indicators that your mattress isn’t doing its job anymore. If you are having these common symptoms, then it is definitely time for a new mattress.
Do you have the wrong type of bed? The best thing to do is to lie down on your current bed – prior to bedtime. Pay attention to how it supports you, what qualities seem to be lacking and write down a list of what your ideal bed should do for you. There are memory foam mattresses, natural latex mattresses, as well as traditional innerspring mattresses that have distinct advantages you may be looking for.
If it hasn’t been that long since you have acquired a new bed, memory foam mattress toppers and memory foam pillows can go a long way to improving your sleeping regimen.
These days, the majority of brands offer free-trial periods that are long enough for you to compare and make a final decision. Should I get a memory foam mattress or a Sleep Number bed? Read our comparison.
So don’t be shy – if you are thinking about buying a new mattress, the time may be sooner than you think.
Adjustable Air Beds – Digital Number Beds & Mattresses
Technological advancements over the last twenty years have brought adjustable air beds and air mattresses to the forefront of the sleep industry. More durable than ever before and providing levels of comfort that is fully adjustable, these digital air mattresses are practical alternatives when a traditional innerspring mattress is no longer providing the kind of rest you need.
Far from that portable air mattress that you keep in the attic for special occasions, these are bona fide beds that look and feel like your traditional mattress but will have you sleeping on air.
So how do adjustable air beds work? Like an innerspring mattress, there is a core of support, but instead of metal coils, the support comes from air that is contained in specially designed air chambers. The core is also molded out of vulcanized rubber, which gives the mattress the strength and durability it needs to support the sleeper’s body weight for years. However, unlike a coil system that has a fixed firmness, air beds can adjust to the sleeper’s tastes – a remote control conveniently adds or releases air through an electric pump, so the mattress can become as soft or firm as you like. The rest of the mattress is much like any traditional mattress, with layers of foam and upholstery to provide a soft, comfortable top to sleep on.
Digital air beds are best for people who enjoy being able to control the firmness of their mattress depending on their mood, or what their body needs from day to day. They are especially ideal for couples who require different levels of firmness, as the core of the mattress is divided in a way that allows one side to be more or less firm than the other.

After a century of being in mass production, innerspring mattresses are still the dominant type of mattress in the world, holding about 80% of the market share. Most of us have grown up on one, and know quite well how they feel. They are tried and tested, have made significant advances over time, and are available in the most known configurations of all kinds of mattresses, more than its newest competitors including memory foam beds by manufacturers like TV Brand memory foam, latex beds, and air beds. Before delving into the latest technologies, it’s important to consider innerspring mattresses for your new or replacement mattress – you may be surprised at what you find.
An innerspring mattress is just that – a mattress whose core is a system of springs or coils that provide the sleep support. The coils can be found in varying thickness – also known as the gauge – and come in different configurations, from standard Bonnell coils to fabric pocketed coils, hinged and flexible offset coils, and continuous coils. Each configuration offers a different type of support, from incredibly firm to supply and contouring. Around the core is generally a cushioning foam layer, which is then surrounded by upholstery that provides the comfortable mattress surface. By varying any one of these elements, you have a unique mattress that can provide the surface you are looking for.
These days, it’s possible to find almost any kind of innerspring mattress for every type of body, sleeping habit, and tastes. While features like the pillow-top and Euro-top have increased the quality of softness, you can even find innerspring beds that are beginning to integrate rival technologies, like a layer of memory foam. So if you want to try out a new level of sleep without committing to the unknown, innerspring beds are still the standard to beat. The best mattress brands for innerspring mattresses are Sealy, Serta, and Simmons – check out each brand’s features and decide which one is best for you.
Memory Foam Mattresses
Developed technology during the 1970’s as a material to relieve astronauts from the pressure of g-forces while in flight, memory foam wasn’t originally intended for mattresses. It took a little ‘outside the box’ thinking by a Swedish company to realize that the potential sleep benefits of the material were too great to be ignored. With a unique ability to mold to and support your body, this material had the ability to relieve more pressure than any previous type of foam. It also takes a long time to return to its original shape – the long-lasting impression of the shape of your body is what inspired its creators to coin the term ‘memory foam’.
So how does memory foam mattresses work? As opposed to innerspring mattresses, there are no separate parts. The incredibly durable polyurethane based foam is filled with billions of minuscule air pockets, which decompress when met with body weight and heat. As air releases, the person sleeping literally sinks into the bed, providing a floating sensation while balancing the body and aligning it correctly. Choosing the right thickness and density can control how much sink there is; the high-density foam will provide more support, while lower density foams will allow you to sink more, and the thicker the foam, the deeper you can go. Memory foam mattresses are generally several layers of varying density that help support and distribute the sleeper’s weight.
Memory foam is perfect for sleepers who like to feel snug, and enjoy the sensation of melting into a mattress. This is also best for sleepers who don’t turn much while sleeping or wish to curb as much movement as possible. While the foam is great at minimizing movements and the chance of disturbing a sleeping partner, that also means there is no springiness to the mattress. But for a restful sensation that feels like floating, this is the mattress to get.

My air conditioner is a lifeline for me in the summer months here in New York City. Even when the temperature is in the 70s, I like to turn it on because my house can become quite stuffy. When the temperatures are in the 80s or 90s, it becomes an absolute necessity. Well, I had to contact a company that does AC repair in NYC last month because my air conditioner was running but not putting out any cold air. I was thankful that the compressor was running, which indicated to me that there might just be a problem with the refrigerant level or even a leak. (more…)
I am generally not the type to give in to hype or live in fear. I am not going to jump out of an airplane anytime soon, but I am also not going to seclude myself in the house because of crime outside my doors. I guess I was living in a bit of a bubble though because crime had just never reached my doorstep. It still hasn’t, but it got mighty close two weeks ago, which is why I did an online search for ADT in Cincinnati.
My neighbor three houses down was the victim of a home invasion. He told me a few days later he was in actual fear of not making it out of his house alive. Thankfully, the two men didn’t even hurt him, physically at least. The reason this is so shocking is because we live on the outskirts of Cincinnati in a tiny town that doesn’t even see vandalism but once every few years. This scared me though because it could have easily been my house that had been chosen. (more…)
My wife and I like a clean house. We are not clean freaks that worry about every speck of dust, and we are not germophobes either. I have a friend who is like that. He walks around with a bottle of hand sanitizer all the time. Still, we like our house to be clean. It is those deep cleanings that take so much time to get done. This is why we hire professional spring cleaning in Singapore to clean our condo.
We want every piece of furniture, including the mattresses, cleaned. We want the curtains and blinds cleaned too. Every wall needs to be washed, and the rooms with carpeting need to have every square inch of the carpet professionally cleaned. I really like how our house sparkles after these spring cleaning jobs are done. I really like it that we do not have to lift a finger during the process. We just supervise the professional cleaners telling them what we want done and they do the rest. It is worth it to have it done this way. (more…)
I really want to switch to Direct Television because from everything that I know about it, it seems like it would be a lot better of an option than what I have at the moment. It is sad that I have been paying too much for my cable for so long and did not really realize how much better the other options were. I did not a bit of searching and found which is a site that I guess has listings of services and the prices of Direct TV.
I am pretty eager to check it out, and I really want to read about all of the different packages closely, so that I can really understand what is going on with them, and what they will include. I don’t think that they are going to be so nice as to tell me what the actual channels are that are included in each package. Although that would certainly be some good information to have.
But it should help me out with a lot of the decision process, and so I am going to get started with this soon. I already told my kids that we were going to get more channels by switching to satellite television, and they were both very excited about it. Too excited really, and they kind of thought it was going to happen instantly, or that I had already made arrangement for the satellite to be installed. When that is not in fact the case, and so now looking back on it, I should have used better judgment and waited until I actually knew when we were going to get it to tell them about it. Or maybe i could have just surprised them with the news as well. That would have worked pretty good, I think so myself.
My wife told me, “We need to talk.” Just what a guy wants to hear. She said we would talk over dinner. She told me that by text. I was afraid to ask what it was about! I did not think I did anything. Well, not on purpose anyway. Over barbecued chipped ham, cole slaw and potato chips she said we needed to talk about how much our electric bill was costing. She said it has been going up and up, and it is the priciest utility we are paying. I checked out TXU electricity rate plans with her online later in the evening. We found several at a lower per kilowatt hour rate.
We found one that had a minimum usage rate that met what we use every month. (more…)
Dental work is a nightmare for most people but the United States remains one of the most dental oriented societies in the world. There’s a very real social pressure to have the best and brightest white teeth regardless of where you may live in America. The idea of having perfect teeth saturates our culture and is one of the driving points of attractiveness; if not the one defining feature that seems to be shared in the multiple interpretations of what we believe beauty to be as Americans. Have you visited your dentist in Grand Rapids? If not, I bet you feel guilty right now for doing so after being so shamelessly reminded that the beauty equation ends and begins with your teeth. It’s something that I’ve struggled with for years because I don’t have straight teeth. There’s very few women who are going to find it endearing and only a handful of women I have dated have thought that it was an attractive part of my features.
There’s nothing at all wrong with having great teeth. (more…)
I remember building my first website as a young man. It was fun to spend all those hours learning how to do it. My main motivation was to show off for friends and family. I built a bunch of websites that were very basic, but they looked like masterpieces to people who knew nothing about the Internet or websites. I am very embarrassed about my efforts. I never went anywhere with it even though I considered I might make it a career back then. The company I own as an adult uses a firm that does website design in Michigan. I could not even begin to build anything now. I barely even remember a couple of basic HTML tags.
The point I am making is that we should leave some things to professionals. We should consult with people that have a proven track record of performance. I remember the early days of the Internet where small business owners were allowing employees or relatives with some web experience to build them an online presence. That never was a good idea.

It has taken a lot of work and dedication from a couple of my employees, but the new website for our company is finally ready to be launched. It is a day that I have looked forward to, because this has been a long time in the making and I have worried that it would not turn out as intended. We need to hire server management for the new website though, because I do not want my employees to have to worry about keeping the website running. They have other things to attend to, and I feel like too much of their time has already been devoted to this project, to expect them to put more time into it going forward.
The real vision of the new website was what took so much effort to develop. (more…)
