So, it’s that time of year when the weather is beginning to warm up and most people are turning their air conditioners on full blast. I know here in the south, we sort of “skipped” over the winter season since we never experienced extremely cold weather for a long period of time. I only recall turning my heater on in my home just a couple of times during those, so-called winter months. So, if you happen to have experienced this same weather, then your a/c or heater hasn’t been running for a while. This could cause an extreme buildup of unwanted air...

Here at Filters-Now.Com, we have several different types of office plants, ranging from a beautiful Peace Lilly to a not so glamorous Magnolia Plant, but we are working steadily to make it ever so fabulous. So here are a few tips that might help your office plants thrive to be beautiful and make your work environment a bit more enjoyable.

When the History Channel aired the pilot episode of “Swamp People,” I couldn’t resist my curiosity to sit down and watch, despite my affinity for animals. For those of you not aware, Swamp People is a TV series that showcases the legalized hunting season of the American alligator in the state of Louisiana, and the culture surrounding this practice. “Gator hunting” is a tradition dating back as far as 300 years, and many veteran hunters earn the majority of their yearly income within the 30-day window that makes up the open season for these large reptiles. Their success is largely dependent on...

Earth Day is a day that is intended to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth's natural environment. Each year, Earth Day is on April 22nd , and it marks the anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. The height of hippie and flower-child culture in the United States in 1970, brought the death of Jimi Hendrix, the last Beatles album, and Simon & Garfunkel’s “Bridge over Troubled Water”. Protest was the order of the day, but saving the planet was not the cause. War raged in Vietnam, and students...

If you are like me, you can’t paint a picture to save your life, but despite my lack of artistic talent, I decided to put a paintbrush in my hand and my hand to a canvas. No, I did not start off on this venture by myself; I am too uncomfortable with my ability (or lack thereof). Anyway, a group of friends and I took an afternoon class with an instructor who was kind enough to show us some Impressionist techniques.
In case you are unfamiliar with art, Impressionism is a specific art form that is involved with giving the “impression” of a subject,...
