    Start 2019 Off With A Plan

    Tweet People talk about New Year’s resolutions, but we know from experience it’s just so much talk, with little action.

    The Land of Nod vs. Nodding Off

    On Guard! Don’t Let Drains Drain Your Energy

    Tweet “En guard!” is a French fencing phrase (say that three times fast) that means, “Get ready! Your opponent is about to run you through with a lance!” Or it may have meant, “Look out! Your drain is about to overflow!” The latter warning should never be uttered in these modern times, however. Not if [...]

    That’s a Wrap: No PFAs in Our Products!

    Tweet A lot of women are lipophobic (that’s fear of fat), which may prevent them from eating fast food. That’s a positive. Fast food is not nutritious. Yet a new study by the Centers for Disease Control found one in three U.S. adults eat fast food every day. That’s about 85 million people; an alarming statistic. Not [...]
