Easy Access to Contact Information

Have you ever wondered what the point of having a letterhead is? I have, and now I am certain that it is a way for corporation, maybe the print companies, to make more money, and that we have just been trained to appreciate them. I was redesigning my letterhead the other day when I came to this conclusion.

A letterhead has your information you want to display, your company name, your address, your phone number, email address and fax number. Those seem like great pieces of information to have, and in a simple location. But isn’t that same information in footers and in signatures? It seems that letterheads create a repetitive system that only needs to be one place.

Great, so now we options of where to display this information, but what if we use the wrong one? What if someone expected to see this information in our signature like but we didn’t put it there because it is in our letterhead? Alright, maybe I’m just ranting because I have to create a new letterhead, maybe they are very useful and I just don’t want to do the extra work.

No More Bathroom Struggles

My stepfather struggles with incontinence. During his young years, he never thought he would suffer from such a condition. He felt embarrassed, and shameful to talk about this issue. Luckily, he felt comfortable enough to talk to his doctor about his chronic incontinence. My stepfather now knows there is help and support out here, to help him cope with his condition. His doctor recommends the incontinence pads. Theses pads are fast absorbent, lightweight, and odorless. He now feels like he has a chance to live a normal life. If it wasn’t for him coming out of his shell, and being open about his issues, then he might not have ever found piece of mind. He freely takes strolls, jogs, plays golf, and goes to the movies. He wouldn’t have been able to do this months ago, because of his incontinence issues.

Let There be Light – In My Room

My living room needed a makeover, the house is two decades old and the windows are still the original ones in the room. I wanted to open up the room, make it feel more welcoming, and just get a fresh new outlook on my home. I did some my research, drew up my ideas, and dove in. Well when I dove I hit the water hard because it is a lot more work to renovate a room than those home makeover shows make it look like.

So a week into my project I finally put up the last thing, my shutter blinds, and final the room is complete. I can finally let the light in, or keep it out, and my two decade old room finally looks fresh and modern. You can’t even tell that the windows are as old as the house. It is the perfect room for a weekend get together now.
