Friday the 13th
Today is Friday the 13th, typically recognized as a superstitious day with unexplainable events and misfortune. However, many fail to realize the rarity and fun facts about this day.
For example, most horror films are released on this day and historically have grossed substantially over initial predictions suggested.
Fittingly, Alfred Hitchcock was born on Friday the 13th.
Every year will have at least one fearful Friday but this year holds two in store for us.
Let us know what you do to ensure a safe and positive day.

It’s that time of year again when we have to get used to the change in time. Daylight savings also known as summer hours will begin Sunday March 8th. Allowing for us to take advantage of more sunlight and long summer nights. Sounds great right? Well, we lose an hour of sleep as the clock will jump ahead at 2AM. So remember to go to sleep early and set your clocks forward! This is also a good time of year to change your smoke alarm batteries and verify they are in working condition.

Spring Cleaning Tips
As winter comes to an end and we prepare for spring to bloom, many people take this time to do some house cleaning in preparation with a nice little tune.
We would like to give you some tips on making this process a breeze, it’ll make your home look good by getting rid of the dust but it might make you sneeze.
So take on this task and prepare yourself well, here is the list to make this season go swell.
- Create a list of all the rooms and the items that need to be taken care of in each, regardless of where you start just make sure you finish one room before moving on to the next
- De-clutter before sanitizing or dusting as an organized room, pantry or closet compels the mind to continue cleaning and eliminates unnecessary stress
- Always work from top to bottom, especially if removing cobwebs or dusting ceiling fans. And before vacuuming, clean table/counter tops to knock dust off
- Eliminate the germs that ruled during winter by washing curtains in hot water, replacing shower curtains and sanitizing light switches, sink handles, remote controls and soap pumps as the hand touches that before getting washed!
- Don’t forget about your air filters and air ducts which build up dust and are the entryway for unwanted outdoor allergies
We hope this makes your spring cleaning a little easier, let us know your tips and tricks.

Leap Year 2020
This year is a special one, as this year we are given 366 days to wake up and be thankful. That’s because 2020 is a Leap Year, which only occurs every four years. But what and when exactly is Leap Day?
Leap Day was generated as an additional calendar day for the month of February in order to keep our modern Gregorian calendar in alignment with our planets rotation around the sun.
Fun fact about this special occurrence, an easy way to determine if the year we are in is a Leap Year, divide it by 4 and you will get a whole number. If the number has a decimal then Leap Day will not occur that year.
