Let’s Talk Water Damage Ogden

The loyal readers of the Everyone Forever Now Blog have been clamoring for some time now for an article on the issue of water damage Ogden. The reason for this should be obvious to all. For the sake of clarity and documentation, however, we shall clearly articulate the reason for the aforementioned clamoring. Once clearly articulated this article shall serve to inform the generations of Everyone Forever Now Blog readers as to the reason for said clamoring. Before we get to the articulation of this reason it certainly makes sense to point out the relation between this topic and the very name of this blog.

The Relation Between Water Damage Ogden and Everyone Forever Now

The word “Everyone” means every person who has ever lived, is currently living and who will ever live in the future. The word “Forever” means all time going forward until the end of time. The word “Now” means the current moment in time that is presently being experienced. The word “Everyone” encompasses a very large population. The word “Forever” encompasses a very expansive amount of time. By contrast, the word “Now” encompasses a very miniscule and fleeting segment of time. When the words “Everyone” and “Forever” and “Now” are put together the way they are in the title of this blog there results a very strange and thought provoking juxtaposition.

It is this very juxtaposition that gives us insight into the connection between the reason for the aforementioned clamoring for an article on the issue of water damage in the Ogden region and the title “Everyone Forever Now.” The insight referred to is the knowledge that water, although a key ingredient for life, can also be a very effective instrument of death. In this we see another juxtaposition of quite another stripe. So there we have it. Comments are welcome.

The Mysterious Nature of a Missing Piece

At this point the loyal readers of the “Everyone Forever Now” blog should be very much aware that there is very much more that a cleaning service Salt Lake City can perform beyond merely cleaning a house. Indeed the Everyone Forever Now readers will be intimately in touch with the fact that clean house is only the gateway (so to speak) into a new world of peace and tranquility. This is self-evidently true because when a house is clean it not only ceases to be a source of stress and anxiety and therefore becomes an oasis of relaxation free from stress and strife.

Let us explore the specific reasons why a house cleaned by a cleaning service Salt Lake City functions in the manner just described. First of all, when a house is clean its occupants need no longer worry about cleaning the house for the very simple reason that the house is already clean and therefore no longer requires cleaning. However, Everyone Forever Now readers know that a house that has been cleaned tends not to stay in that pristine state forever. Accordingly, hiring a cleaning service and knowing that it will return on a periodic basis over time provides an ongoing sense of security. Because this security is ongoing, the person experiencing this peace has a reinforced and strengthened sense of peace.

Not only will a cleaning service provide both a clean house and peace of mind but there is also one final piece to this puzzle that must be discussed before the word count reaches three hundred. Of course that missing piece might be obvious to some Everyone Forever Now readers. Perhaps to others that piece remains elusive. Regardless there is no debating that the missing piece is in fact missing and it is the fact that it is missing that maintains its mysterious nature.

Meditation is a Cleaning Service for the Mind

Meditation is a cleaning service Vancouver for the mind. Before I explain this enigmatic statement allow me to first explain what I mean by the word “meditation.” In its simplest sense meditation is merely the focusing of attention. In the mind’s normal state of affairs it wanders from mental image to mental image and from commentary to never ending commentary. By contrast, when a person enters a state of meditation, he or she actively makes the intention to focus attention on something. This something can be anything from the present moment itself, to the breath, to a mental image or repeated mantra. The essential task of meditation occurs when the practitioner realizes that his or her mind has wandered from its intended focus of attention. When this realization is made the practitioner simply, gently and non judgmentally brings his or her focus back where it belongs. This process should ideally continue for a period of time no less than twenty minutes. Some people find this to be a high bar to aim for at first and so the beginner can start with shorter periods and simply work his or her way up to twenty minutes.

This practice acts as a cleaning service Vancouver for the mind in many ways. First of all the more one meditates the less the mind jumps from idea to idea. For most practitioners of meditation this will never cease all together. But one of two things will happen. Either the mind will slow down in its jumping from idea to idea or the practitioner will be able to maintain an awareness of this process and sort of keep it in the background whilst continuing to maintain focus upon the intended focus of attention. Along with this strengthened ability to focus comes a sense of calm and an ability to think more clearly.

Chemical Properties of Water

The water molecule is comprised of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. This is what is meant by the chemical shorthand H2O. This unique chemical structure gives rise to the special properties specific to water. For example, the fact that the oxygen atom bonded to the two hydrogen atoms possesses valences or the ability to bond to other atoms or molecules gives rise to the destructive power of water. In other words, if water did not bond and react with other atoms it would not interact with them and something that cannot interact with other atoms there is no way that it can cause damage.

Rust and rot are two very obvious types of water damage Utah that the H2O molecule can cause. Rust happens because the oxygen molecule bonds with the atoms that make up the metal it comes into contact with. When this happens the chemical structure of the metal changes into rust. Similarly, the oxygen molecule will bond to the atoms and molecules making up the atomic structure of wood and cause it to rot by changing its chemical structure.

Those of us who are not chemists or other types of scientists tend not to think about water damage Utah in this manner. When we do think of water damage we tend to think of it in terms of the water seeping into the metal or wood and causing damage by soaking it and somehow undermining its integrity. This is in fact what is happening but it is happening because the way the atoms bond and interact with each other. In a sense water is transformative in that it changes the materials that interact with it from one substance to another. By contrast we tend to think that the substance that has rusted or rotted essentially stay the same but is weakened somehow.

The Not So Simple Case of a Car and a Goose

It may well be asked by many an observer whether Mr. Sackman did indeed hit the Canada goose on his way to the Toastmasters meeting that fateful Tuesday evening or whether the goose itself hit Mr. Sackman. This in no way is a mere question of semantics. Clearly Mr. Sackman’s car came into contact with the goose as the smear of feathers and bird tissue on his bumper indicates. Although the impact inflicted no significant damage that would require Mr. Sackman to take his car to a collision repair Salt Lake City the question still remains. Who exactly was a fault?

Perhaps it will never be known with any degree of certainty which individual (that is, Mr. Sackman or the Canada goose) is at fault. Be that as it may, one can draw certain conclusions based upon the facts in evidence. Exhibit A consists of the feathers and bird tissue upon Mr. Sackman’s bumper which was alluded to in the first paragraph of this blog post. Exhibit B consists of a statement overheard from the very lips of Mr. Sackman himself to wit his expression of remorse for having sped through the intersection where the geese were known to cross in order to arrive at the Toastmasters meeting promptly at 7:15 PM.

True, Mr. Sackman’s car was never taken to an auto body repair Salt Lake City to have the damage (or lack there of) inspected by a professional. As such, we shall never know if said damage would have indicated any amount of volition on behalf of the pedestrian foul who met his demise. It is difficult to imagine what sort of evidence would definitively indicated such volition but it is not out of the realm of possibility that such evidence might exist. Given that no definitive evidence has been brought to my attention it may very well be the case that I will drop this inquiry.

Cleanliness is Next to Godliness

We can all agree that it is a good thing to live in a clean house. Often this is accomplished by hiring a house cleaning Vancouver service. To that end I have often heard it said that “cleanliness is next to godliness” and I am not quite sure what this phrase means. First of all, if cleanliness “is next to” godliness then what occupies the space of godliness. Does the phrase imply that godliness occupies the next space on a continuum of cleanliness such that “filthiness” is all the way on the left and “godliness” is all the way on the right and “cleanliness” is right next to “godliness”? If that were the case then godliness and filthiness would be degrees of the same thing. If true, what might that thing be?

This line of speculation borders on blasphemy. For one thing “godliness” with a lower case “g” is a quality and not a god in and of itself. Accordingly, to use the word “godliness” with a lower case “g” suggests a possibility of there being more than one god. If on the other hand we were to spell “godliness” with a capital “G” then it could be interpreted as implying that the one true God exists on a continuum with “filthiness”. Of course this will not do by and standards of decency.

It goes without saying that no house cleaning Vancouver service wants to be associated with blasphemy. Even if their personal beliefs on the matter were neutral it is quite probable that the personal beliefs of many of their customers are not neutral. Accordingly, said service would do well for themselves not to use the phrase “cleanliness is next to godliness” except within the privacy of their cleaning service headquarters safely out of earshot of any of their potential customers.

Get Comfortable With Visual Aids

The eighth project in the Toastmaster’s Competent Communicator manual is entitled “Get Comfortable With Visual Aids” and involves the use of visual aid to help the audience understand and remember the main thrust of the speech. The first objective for project number eight is for the speaker to select visual aids that are appropriate for the message he or she intends to convey to the audience. For example, if the speaker decides to give a speech on the topic of what the experience is like to actually join Scentsy as a sales consultant he or she may choose to employ various Scentsy products including but not limited to candle warmers or Scentsy bars.

 

The second objective to project number eight is for the speaker to use these selected visual aids correctly, with ease and confidence when delivering the speech. Because the time allotted for this particular speech is a mere five to seven minutes the speaker must deliver the speech and use the visual aids as efficiently as possible. On efficient and effective way the speaker might employ the use of visual aids is to pass around a Scentsy product so that the audience can actually take in the scent and appreciate it for themselves.

 

Not everyone can truly appreciate what it means to join Scentsy if they have never done that on their own. Accordingly a speaker who is attempting to faithfully describe this phenomenon accurately has their work cut out for them. This, of course, is both the true challenge as well as the true reward of project number eight in the Competent Communicator Manual. There are many factors that will work to determine whether or not the two objectives of the speech have been successfully achieved by any particular speaker. The most important factor in this determination is probably how comfortable the speaker is in using the visual aids he or she has selected to use.

Unnecessary Mental Process

It is an interesting question to ask why we as a society place such a premium on the cleanliness of a person’s house. We tend to make a great deal of assumptions based on how messy their houses are. If we visit them and their house is a mess (for example) we may come to the conclusion that they are lazy, inconsiderate or otherwise deficient and based on this conclusion we may not trust them with valuable matters or seek to distance ourselves from them. It is human nature on a certain level. From the perspective of the home owner they may become embarrassed regarding the messy state of their living situation. They might feel anxious or stressed about not having made the proper preparations to make sure that their house was in a presentable state of affairs before having guests over.

 

A simple solution to this problem is to hire a housekeeping service Salt Lake City. We all know that there can be many reasons why a person might not be able to keep their home in tip top shape one hundred percent of the time. They might be busy or tired or any number of reasons may have gotten in the way. There is no reason for a homeowner to feel ashamed of the cleanliness of their house just because they cannot make the time to clean it themselves. Moreover there is no reason why a homeowner should suffer the judgment of potential guests who may not be in a position to know that there was a legitimate reason for the messy state of their home and that the reason has nothing to do with a moral failure on the part of the home owner.

 

The question really is why should a home owner put themselves through any of this undue stress when hiring a home cleaning Salt Lake City service can eliminate the whole unnecessary mental process.

The Destructive Power of Water

Oh water, thou destroyer of homes with your floods and your seepage. You soak into wood and rust away metal. What we work so hard to build up you mindlessly tear down without a second thought causing untold water damage Utah. Forgive me for personifying you who are so clearly not human. You are a force of nature and as such not only do you not possess a second thought, you never had a first thought to precede it.

 

What can be done in the face of such a mindless destroyer of all our works? Certainly we must take steps to avoid water damage Utah in the first place. For example, we must not build our dwelling places on a flood plane where we know water is want to travel. Certainly we must take steps to mitigate water damage one it happens by cleaning up the mess and drying the place out. Certainly we can purchase a separate flood insurance policy as we know well that home owner policies typically do not cover this contingency.

 

Our civilization is a proud one and we must strive to keep it from declining with all our hearts. Water cannot defeat us so long as we do not give in to it. Let the fire in our hearts continue to burn brightly. Never shall we let the forces of wetness douse this most precious flame. It is known that man’s life on this earth is fleeting and full of misery and yet we stubbornly persist and resist the forces which desire to break us. Perhaps many generations from now the light of vitality will grow dim and go out. But that time is not now and therefore we will stand proud in the face of the destructive power of water. Let it do its worst and when it is done we will build it up again.

Adored Scentsy Bar

Soon after I made the decision to join Scentsy I came in contact with the Adored Scentsy Bar. According to the description of the Adored Scentsy Bar available on the www.dreams-unlimited.com website this product is, “[f]un, flirtatious, cherry black plum and a warm whiff of sandalwood [which together] spin a succulent springtime yarn.” I must admit that I whole heartedly agree with this product description. Upon taking in the vapors of the Adored Scentsy Bar for the first time I did indeed experience the elation that I believe the words “fun” and “flirtatious” allude to. Moreover, my olfactory senses did in fact take in the aroma of “cherry black plum” along with a very distinctive “whiff of sandalwood.”

 

Where this product description runs off the rails as far as I am concerned is in its last five words. These words of which I speak (or write to be accurate) are the ones which claim the Adored Scentsy Bar “spin[s] a succulent springtime yarn.” To my knowledge a “yarn” in this context should be taken to mean “story” as in, “he spins a good yarn” meaning “he tells a good story.” I suppose I can imagine how a scent can tell a good story in that the scent describes a scene or evokes a memory that can be associated with a story line. However, I have a hard time understanding how this springtime yarn spun by the Adored Scentsy Bar is “succulent.”

 

Don’t get me wrong. I understand that this product description was written by another person who made the decision to join Scentsy like me. I imagine they are sitting in a writing room with some other people tasked with the responsibility to devise hundreds of product descriptions for hundreds of Scentsy products. This description may have been the last one of the day written after his or her mind was spent. If this is the case then I can forgive the use of “succulent” to describe a “springtime yarn.”
