What the Varchar?
There's nothing worse than waking up, fixing yourself a pot of coffee, having a morning stretch and then spotting a mouse scurrying across your kitchen floor. While pests are hardly the end of the world, they can ruin the day of any homeowner. If you've realized that you have an insect or rodent infestation in your home, don't panic. Instead, follow these tips to take care of the issue.
When you see a mouse or a large insect, your first instinct might be to try and vanquish the little pest yourself. However, keep in mind that some pests are indeed dangerous and they might sting or bite you. If you aren't sure that it's safe to get near a pest, don't.

If you're expecting overnight guests for the holidays, you want to offer them a cozy and comfortable experience. Whether your guests are visiting for a few days or a few weeks, it's important to make them feel welcome. Take a look at some simple things you can do to create an inviting environment.
Create a Welcome Entrance

One of the ways that you can look at the ground from the sky above is with a drone. This is an electronic device that companies are using to deliver products to customers and that people are using to get a better look at some of the things that they can't see from home or a car or while walking.
Camera drones are beneficial for many reasons. Real estate companies can use them to take pictures of homes that are for sale. This gives a different perspective for buyers so that they can see the exterior of the home instead of only the inside. Car dealerships can use drones to get a better view of the inventory that is on the lot so that they can see just how many vehicles they have and if they need to purchase more so that customers have a better selection.
Photographers can use drones to capture images of everything…
An old adage proclaims that the show must go on. However, keeping the show going can be difficult when you cannot move stage props, sound equipment, and other gear needed for the performance. Props and mechanical equipment can be heavy and burdensome to move, making it a challenge for show hands to do their jobs. Rather than risk your performance and having the curtain come down on your entire production, you can keep the show alive and the audience entertained by keeping parts like theater casters, rollers, and other components on hand for every show.
Full Range of Motion
Keeping the audience transfixed on your performance calls for a smooth transitioning of the background scenery. You do not want the audience to see the nuances of changing out or moving props in the…
Moroccan Beni Ourain rugs are a celebration of the traditional patterns, weaves, and textiles that have been hand-woven in Morocco for over a thousand years. Historically woven by the indigenous tribes to serve utilitarian, rather than decorative, purposes, the twentieth-century saw a revival of Beni Ourain rugs that have since been widely revered in the Western interior design world.
In modern-day Morocco the art of rug making is still a time-honored tradition. The roots of the Beni Ourain rug can be traced back to the prehistoric cultures of the region. The nomadic tribes spent most of their lives in transit, moving with the seasons, and the rugs were constructed in accordance with the distinctive varying climates: thick, heavy piling for colder Atlas Mountain elevations, lighter weaves for the hotter Saharan desert…
