Let's Talk Turkey

 

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I can just taste that yummy pumpkin pie! Mmmm! And I bet you and your family are getting ready for this delicious American tradition as well!

However before you start digging into that Turkey wouldn't you like to know more about this holiday and why we celebrate it? Of course many of you know it was founded by the Pilgrims of Plymouth Rock and the Native Americans, but did you know that the holiday wasn't a national holiday until Abraham Lincoln declared it 1863? Also at the first Thanksgiving there wasn't any pumpkin pie served, instead it was just pumpkins minus the pie. I'm glad that tradition has changed!

Rain, Rain, Go Away

When It Rains . . . It Pours

We are very thankful that we did not get hit as bad as most residents in Colorado. However I thought I would share a few photos from our experience through the 100 year flood!

This is the creek in front of our warehouse. And yes you did read that correctly, our creek. Before the rain this was barely a trickle of a stream; afterward it became a raging river! Currently it has calmed back down to a creek state again, but at the time it was crazy to come to work to this!

Here is the parking lot we share with other businesses. If you can't tell there is so much water that a whirlpool has formed above a drain. Basically it's a larger version of what happens when you drain your bathtub. 
Again we are supremely thankful this was the worst of it for us. However, there were those who were hit hard by the storm. So please continue to keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Aww Refreshing!

Neither did I? I thought the only benefit to a lemon, was to make the water taste better.

Well prepare to be amazed: Lemon not only makes water taste better, it also helps with weight loss, great skin and digestion. In addition, it helps fight off unwanted sickness, heartburn, and constipation.

Do you drink coffee to help you wake up? Well Lemon Water can help give you a boost of energy, without the side-effect of bad coffee breath. I know, I'm definitely adding this to my morning routine!
