Since carnivals aren't allowed by NYS Governor, let's support the local fire depts. Look them up online, some have donation pages or send them a check for what you would spend if they had it. Carnivals and parades are a way for the fire dept. to raise much needed funds, don't let them down. Thank you.

The Mia Foundation

The Mia Foundation takes in dozens of animals born with deformities with the goal of giving them a chance at a life. 



Descartes stated "I think therefore I am" and was referring to the connection between the mind and the body.  Wishbone wanted in on that thought.  In the canine world, which Wishbone believes Descartes was probably talking about, the connection between the mind and the body is very relevant.  Think about it.  We've all seen dogs use facial expressions, the set of their ear, tail position and overall demeanor to signal their intentions and feelings to others.  Dog body language.  The following are some signals of dog body language.  To learn more and to read about the details of a dog's body language from Modern Dog Magazine or

1.  A dog's eyes can inform you that a dog is feeling scared, aggressive or even ill.

2.  A dog's posture tells you a lot about what he is thinking, often they try to make themselves tall or small based on what they are feeling.

3. A dog's hair is a sign of body language, a perfect example is when a dog "raises his hackles".

4. The action of a dog's tail will tell you a lot but of course that depends on the breed of dog and their particular type of tail.

5. Again depending on the breed of the dog, a dog uses their ears to express what they are thinking.

Guess What I'm Thinking??!!

There are many articles claiming you can improve brain function simply by changing the way you do things.  And there are some articles stating that this simply isn't true.  Who do you believe?  Or the better question is what does it hurt?

Physical Exercise - We all know this helps everything in every way so it only makes sense that it helps brain function as well.  No need to go crazy, which is what usually stops us from adding physical exercise at all.  Just move.  Get up from your desk or couch a few extra times.  Walk around the room, or don't even do that!  Just get up.  Sit down.  It's more movement than you were doing!

Opposite Hand Tasks - This makes sense, doing something just the opposite of what you are used to has to work your brain different doesn't it?  It's fun anyway, move your mouse to the opposite side.  Use your opposite hand to brush your teeth.  It's a challenge at first!  Try it!

Mental Imagery  It is believed that mental imagery activates the perceptual parts of your brain typically involved in processing sight, sound, smell, taste and touch.  And so it is believed that taking a few minutes every day to focus on a mental image can improve your brain function. Try it.  What's it hurt?!  Visualize your favorite place, the beach, the mountains etc., be sure to imagine the full surroundings in as much detail as you can...or want!

Who knows?  Who do you believe?  Or the better question is what does it hurt?

Spray Foam Insulation has many benefits.  Most people think immediately of the savings in heating costs and that is certainly one huge benefit. Spray Foam Insulation has many other benefits that are too often overlooked and one of those is the flip side of saving on heating costs.  Saving on cooling costs.  It's natural to associate thoughts of insulation with winter but that's only half of the equation.  When you think of saving with Spray Foam Insulation think year round.  And when you think of Spray Foam Insulation think Jag Construction.

Jim and Diane were thrilled when Empire Fabricators delivered the beautiful counter top for their outdoor grill from Big Ash Fireplace and Stove. Jim was ready with the frame he'd built thanks to Dugan Creek Lumber.  Jim's outdoor kitchen is coming along and he couldn't be happier, thanks to all the amazing companies that were a part of creation of 'The Salmon Ranch Outdoor Kitchen'.  

Last fall we brought you images of the granite Jim and Diane chose for their counter tops.  This is the pattern they chose from Empire Fabricators huge inventory, it was a tough decision but this one spoke to them.  

Recently they relied once again on Empire Fabricators for the counter top that would 'house' their new amazing grill.


Look how beautifully it all came together!
