Wedding Made Perfect

I was so nervous as me and my fiance were deciding just who we would have playing music at our wedding. He wanted a friend of his and I wanted a professional. We were in a disagreement so big that I almost thought that we might have to call off the wedding. Then, someone recommended an events violinist to us and we listened to the kind of music that this man could play. We were very happy with the results and we finally had a musician that we could agree upon. We found that the man that we choose was just the right pick, and we were very happy with our choice. The wedding was perfect, and we were both happy with our choice in regard to music. Everything turned out beautifully.

A Lucky Break

Last summer, I stayed at a friend’s house while my home was being remodeled. It was the hottest stretch our town had seen in years. To make things worse, his air conditioning Manchester unit decided to crash and burn one miserable afternoon. He tried calling every repair place in the phone book, but no one would be available for several hours. It seemed everyone else was having the same problem.

We tried to tough it out for a while, but finally decided we just couldn’t take it anymore. We decided to go to the mall; it was always nice and cool there. Just as we were heading out the door, the air conditioner came back on! It was the weirdest coincidence either of us had ever experienced, and definitely a welcome one.

Keep Her Happy with Flowers

I’ve always been a fan of sending out flowers to my special lady friends. It is just something I’ve always enjoyed doing. Not because I have to but because I really like to see the smiles on their faces and hear how excited they become. I don’t just send flowers when I’m in trouble but because I feel like it. However, I don’t want to just pick out the random flowers because I don’t really know what I’m doing. Although I could always select flowers from the local Harrogate florist, I don’t really have much of a way of combining colors. I just don’t have that color pallet at my disposal. This is exactly why I go to see the professional and check out what they are able to provide me. With the professionals, I am able to receive help and have them show me what I need to know about selecting flowers.

An Unexpected Diagnosis was our Family’s Holiday Gift

My stepfather is a retired radio personality with a larger-than-life persona. At family events, Tommy always makes everyone laugh. Last Thanksgiving, however, I noticed something was different. Tommy wasn’t joking and having fun at the table. He was unusually quiet and something seemed wrong.

I asked my mom if she knew what was going on with Tommy. She said he’d been unusually quiet for the last few months. I wondered if he’d had his hearing checked recently. Tommy is getting older and I thought hearing loss could make it difficult for him to communicate and might inhibit his normally boisterous personality. My mom convinced Tommy to go to the doctor, and sure enough, he diagnosed hearing loss. Tommy got his Stockport hearing aids just in time for Christmas and was back to the fun guy we’d always known–laughing, joking, and making the holidays so much merrier for us all.

Be Self-Reliant!

I used to work as a salesman at a local retailer. I often worked nights alone. There was a security system that had to be turned on when I locked up at night. One night, when I was locking up the store, I noticed that the CCTV Bolton for the front door was broken. The video monitor in the backroom was just blinking a gray screen. I fiddled around with it but couldn’t figure out how to fix it. I knew that I shouldn’t lock up the store without having the it running because the store was located in a bad part of town. I decided to troubleshoot on my own. I got out the manual and followed the procedures to fix basic problems. After a few minutes I was able to reset the system and it worked. Sometimes it’s better to be self-reliant than rely on others to fix your problems.
