Mold is Bold

So, one thing I do try to do on here is keep it as real as possible with you all. And that’s why today I want to talk about the serious importance of mold testing. I recently had a horrible experience that I’d like to share in short. And I hope it inspires some of you to take action and put your health in your own hands before you’re left without a choice… Seriously. Well, let’s start with I never even had mold on my radar. It wasn’t one of those things I ever really thought to look for or screen for. I’ve always lived a rather, mold-free life… So I thought. Over the last year, I’ve noticed that I was having an increased number of headaches. I’ve always had a history of headaches and these weren’t severe, so I didn’t really think much of it. You know, to me [ . . . ]

Groovy Venue

So, the 70’s were all about free love. But of course, both then and now, there are still plenty of us who want the traditional wedding and monogamous relationship. And that includes my best friend in this entire world, Jasmine. As is the duty of being “best friend in this entire world,” I’ve been going around with her to different venues to check out the best spot for her taste. Now, Jasmine is much more… Conservative than I am. So she didn’t really take me seriously when I suggested that she get married at the Dead and Co. show that’s coming up. (I understand… She just needs more time to plan). But really, while we were looking for venues, we had a tough time finding one that was eloquent without being rigid. Classy without being snobbish. Not too sophisticated and not too casual. In other words, she likes her porridge juuust right. So [ . . . ]

Shall we shag now?

For those of you who actually caught the Austin Powers reference that is the title of this post, you may be disappointed to discover that this article is completely unrelated. I’m not talking about… that kind of shagging. I’m talking about shag carpet! Which I just got!!! If you’ve never had the delight of experiencing the wonders of shag carpet, you’re missing out on all this: Yeah… that’s right. In case you can’t tell from the picture, shag carpet is basically the long haired dog of the carpet world. And it feels marvelous! When I told my mom this is what I was going for, she couldn’t help but laugh because, of course, it’s a wonderful product of the 70’s. One of their best in my own opinion. I wasn’t entirely sure how difficult it would be to find shag carpeting but I went ahead and called the experts of carpet Greer, [ . . . ]

Music festivals are back

Dancing, music, freedom. That’s what any of the current music festivals are all about. And where do you think the inspiration came from? The 70’s of course! Of course, one of the most famous music festivals of all time was Woodstock (which was really in 1969, but close enough). This festival was the real inspiration to the many festivals you’ve seen since. Kids (18 and up) and adults alike are now all trying to relive those days. And when you’ve experienced one of these festivals, you understand exactly why. The sense of freedom and unity are like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. At many of these shows, such as TomorrowWorld in Georgia and Burning Man in Nevada, festival goers will stay on the festival grounds in a tent. These turn into large communities for the weekend where campers can meet people from all over the world. Yes, WORLD. People will [ . . . ]

Here we go- Timber!

I tell you what, guys… Only me. This morning, I was running a bit late, as usual, for an interview out on the East Coast. (But this time it was the rain’s fault!) No… Actually, it was a tree. Seriously though. A tree made me late for my interview. When I woke up, it was a pretty average day. There was a little bit of drizzle, nothing too crazy, (though enough to make me whip out my anti-frizz cream — although, just being in South Carolina will do that). But when I was ready to leave, finally having gotten myself together with likely just enough time to spare, the wind picked up out of nowhere! Seriously, the trees were swaying so hard I though they were all going to snap. And then… One did. Yup. A a tree fell in the driveway of the house I was airBnBing at. (Is airBnBing an [ . . . ]

Why 76?

Some of you may be wondering why this is the “Spirit of 76” of all times. Well, as you could have guessed, I am indeed referring to the year 1976 when I say 76. The reason being… It was a time of freedom! At least from a mental stand point. People were open to different ways of thinking and living; open to a wide variety of interests and opportunities. Unlikely people were coming together with a meeting of the minds. It was a beautiful time. Of course, it was a difficult time in many ways as well, as you can’t always separate the good from the bad completely. But I’m here to focus on the good. I think that at this particular time in our lives, and on a global scale timeline, people are beginning to adopt a very similar mindset to that time. People all over the place are becoming [ . . . ]
