Having lived in the South my entire life, you still never get used to Hurricane Season. I still, to this day, act like a child and get anxious and nervous when one is heading my direction.
Hurricane Season runs every year from June 1st – Nov. 30th, but we have had hurricanes and tropical storms outside of this time frame. Pet’s safety is a very common issue during a hurricane.

What does it mean to be energy efficient? Well, being energy efficient can be defined as “using less energy to provide the same service”. While this may be a broad definition of the phrase, it describes it quite nicely. When we think of being energy efficient, we think of driving a hybrid vehicle, or turning the lights off when leaving a room, but being energy efficient can go much further than that.
However you look at it, the goal of being energy efficient is to use fewer resources to provide a product or service. One example that I’m sure most people can relate to is, if...

Best Indoor House Plants
The best indoor house plants are those that are clearly visible and have a nice, radiant color that adds to the flavor and beauty of any room. Although house plants are extremely decorative, there are some factors which need to be considered when raising house plants. Some factors would be the temperature in your home, the amount of light the plant receives, and the soil housing the plant.
