Authentic, Elegant, The House is You.

Hi again everyone!

Have you ever wished there were little features of your house that looked, or functioned differently.

“I wish the yard didn’t drain back to the garage”

“I wish the porch overhang was supported better so it didn’t sag in the middle”

“I hate the way the siding looks on that part of the house”

“Why does our house look so much worse than the neighbors?  It’s like it just doesn’t fit the neighborhood”

Have you ever had a thought run through your head that sounded something like that?  You probably missed something when you built/designed your house.  Or worse yet, has THIS happened to you?

That is where my referral for today would have come in to help.  If you have, or could find yourself in this situation, I would encourage you to get in touch with Dan, the owner of East Arbor Architecture.  He is out of Mid-Michigan and Working with an architect that appreciates little details will help you be, and ultimately stay satisfied with your hosue.  Oh, and P.S. Dan LOVES older houses, and older buildings.  Once you meet him you’ll see why his work is ‘Authentic, Elegant, East Arbor.’

An Image you Couldn’t Imagine

Shelley not only can help someone with the way they present themselves from a fashion standpoint (a professional suit for a business person for example), but also focuses alot on peoples behaviors, and communication styles as well.  She gives public lectures on various topics as well as private coaching where she can work one on one with someone.

If you are a professional, businessperson, male or female you could benefit from meeting with Shelley.   Check out Mieshel Image Consulting online at:



At the Movies Armed and Ready

Today I am going to talk about Cinema Soldier.  A blog run by my friend Jeff that covers all things movies and films.  Any page with a whole section called “Awesome” deserves quite the shout out.

Any time I have a conversation with a friend about going to see a new movie, the thought “I should read the review on Cinema Soldier” goes through my head.  Anytime you want to catch a cool new trailer, find fun facts on new films, or a candid review about whether or not a movie meets all the hype or not, jump over and give Cinema Soldier a read.

Keepin’ the pipes clean. We Salute You.

If you have been in Michigan anytime in the last 200 years, you have probably had some type of plumbing issues.  Whether it was needing a functional sump pump in your basement, having a pipe freeze in winter, or the everyday busted toilet, you know what I mean.  We’ve all been there, done that, and don’t want to deal with it ever, ever again.  

Well today I want to suggest that if you come across any of those types of issues, whether big or small, get in touch with the guys over at Hedlund Plumbing.  They are owned/run by two brothers who have had plumbing in their genes from two generations before them!  (No they aren’t Mario and Luigi).  They are actually Bob and Tom Hedlund.  They are great to work with, and they take their work very seriously.  If something turns out to be wrong with their work, they come out and make it right.  They are confident enough in their work to say that they will guarantee it for sevearal years!

They’ll get you fixed up right, and won’t make your wallet look like that pipe up there in the process.
