    Here’s a Tip: Drive a Golf Cart Florida Will Thank You

    Many handymen are taking heed of the tip to drive a golf cart Florida to work in Port Charlotte. The choice to drive a golf cart as opposed to some other mode of transportation to work is a better home tip then might be immediately apparent at first glance. This is true because driving any other mode of transportation (a car for example) is a much bigger undertaking than driving a golf cart. The obvious reason for this is because a golf cart is much smaller than the typical automobile. Its smaller size makes it much easier to maneuver around objects and and to navigate tight corners.

    DRIVE A GOLF CART FLORIDA TO YOUR NEXT CONSTRUCTION JOB

    When one drives a mode of transportation to a job site the most important goal is to arrive at the intended destination. Once that goal has been consistently achieved the handyman can then work to refine the technique. This can involve many different techniques unto itself. For example, the handyman might choose to drive to the job site using a different route than normal. The handyman might also choose to drive to the job site using a different vehicle than normal. This is where the golf cart comes in.

    All of us here at the “Handyman Home Tips” blog are firm believers in driving a golf cart to the job site. This is true and there are no better golf carts than the golf carts that have their origin in the state of Florida. Everybody in the golf cart community knows that no better golf carts are made in any other part of the country (or world for that matter). And we all know that if you are going to drive a golf cart you might as well drive the best golf cart possible.

    The Mysterious Drum Pump

    How to approach the mystery that is the drum pump and all its ramifications? In a sense it can never be approached. For when you get right down to it you (gentle reader) and I as well as everyone else are all the drum and the pump together. In fact you might say that there is only the drum and the pump. Although it seems on a surface level that the drum is separate from the pump and you and I are also separate. It takes effort to see the truth behind this illusion. Or you might say that dropping effort is the key to seeing through the illusion.

    SEEING THROUGH THE DRUM PUMP ILLUSION

    We may question why this illusion exists in the first place. If we are all one along with the drum and the pump why are we not fully aware of this fact? It has been suggested that we are living in an illusion because we chose to live in the illusion. There was something that we could experience in the illusion that we could not experience without the illusion. There is also the sense that whilst living within the illusion we can never really fully appreciate what it is like to live without the illusion.

    It is important to realize that there can be no mistakes in this. The only sin (defined more as mistake or ignorance as opposed to a moral error) is to fall deeper into the illusion. It is almost as if we dove into the deep end of a pool and we are heading back towards the surface. Only once below the surface of the water we forget what it was like above the surface of the water. But in a sense we dove into the water in order to forget.

    The Mysterious Tote Pump

    We shall never hope to solve the mystery of the tote pump though we shall doubtless spend many years in the process. Indeed, though we may be handy and though we be men as well, these twin attributes do nothing to clear the fog surrounding the true meaning of the tote pump. It is almost as if the fabric of reality had been designed to keep this meaning from being made manifest in our knowing. And if that is the case then we must come to terms with existing in this state of not knowing. The Buddha told us long ago that life is suffering (dukkha).

    GRASPING AT KNOWING THE TOTE PUMP 

    And might we say that trying to know the true nature of the tote pump is really an attempt to know ourselves and our true nature. For as much as we inhabit these bodies and experience these egos can we really say that we know them? Do we make our heart pump blood through our veins? Do we make the hair spring forth from our scalps? No, these things simply happen and yet at the same time we have the sense that we are some how responsible for their happenings.

    There is the tendency to take the off ramp of caring when one reaches this point. That is to say that when one finally realizes that the struggle is futile to then collapse in a state of learned helplessness. But this is not a desirable outcome either. If we cannot know the answer we must learn to accept that state of affairs. Not necessarily to give up in defeat but rather to cease the struggle entirely. In other words it is the struggle (the dukkha) that is the problem and its solution is to cease struggling. Only then (ironically) will we come to understand the true nature of the tote pump.

    Here’s a Tip… Use a Drum Heater

    download (1)One of the best handy man home tips that can be offered to a person is for them to make use of a drum heater and to make use of it right away. This is the tip offered in this blog post for the simple reason that if the chemicals stored within a drum that is in your possession are in fact chemicals that are sensitive to the cold then they will require heat. In my many years of being a handy man I have found that the best way to keep the chemicals that are stored within a drum at the appropriate temperature is to heat the drum.

    HEAT THE DRUM WITH A DRUM HEATER

    Once the drum has been properly heated you can rest assured that the chemicals that are stored within will continue to maintain their effectiveness. This is true because if a chemical is kept at a temperature that does not pose a threat to its effectiveness then the there is no reason that the chemical’s effectiveness will be compromised. It all makes logical sense ultimately and because it does make logical sense ultimately there is no reason to doubt what I am telling you while at the same time there is every reason to believe it.

    So really, what do you have to loose? Why are you even still reading this article? If I were you, I would be in my car already on the way to my closest Home Depot in order to purchase a heater for my drum. Those chemicals that are stored in that drum in your garage are most certainly not going to heat themselves. And this is the supreme reason why a heater of the drum is required. Remember once those chemicals have been properly heated you can rest easy knowing that they will not loose their effectiveness.

    Water Damage Bountiful of the Heart

    VYM - Ad4 - 3ColorsOne of the best handy man home tips that I can provide to you is to be weary of water damage Bountiful of the heart. What do I mean by this? Well, for one thing I am not talking about the physical structure that is the home in which you live. What I am talking about is the emotional structure that is your heart. When I speak of water damage to the heart I am of course speaking in metaphorical terms. You are right to wonder to what the metaphor is describing. I wonder that myself sometimes but I am sure I will come up with something by the end of the third paragraph of this blog post.

    THE SOUL OF WATER DAMAGE BOUNTIFUL 

    It is unfortunate indeed that I only have three paragraphs in which to relay the point that I intend to relay because it is an important one. Alas, we all must work with the materials we have and the constraints in which we find ourselves operating. Perhaps the only goal in which this meager blog post can aspire is to point the reader in the right direction. Perhaps after reading this blog post (in other words) the reader will seek out additional information to cultivate a more robust understanding.

    Allow me to get right to the point. When I speak of water damage to the heart and soul one might rightfully think of this water as composed of millions and millions of tears. This my friend is water born of sadness. This is the result of the experience of the tragedy of life. It is an unfortunate reality that the life we experience is the only life that can exist. As the Buddha once said long ago, life is suffering. This is the cause of water damage to the heart.

    A Cleaning Service Salt Lake City Makes the World a Better Place

    landscape-1434147736-50-cleaning-tipsA cleaning service Salt Lake City makes life easier for all people involved. Obviously the cleaning service will make life easier for the owner of the home being cleaned. This is true because he or she will not have to clean his or her house himself or herself. By not having to clean his or her house himself he or she will save time but not necessarily money because he or she will be paying the cleaning service to perform the cleaning. Although an argument might be made that the home owner will also be saving money by hiring a cleaning service because he or she might be able to earn more money than the amount of money paid to the cleaning service during this time period.

    A CLEANING SERVICE SALT LAKE CITY SAVES TIME AND EFFORT AND IN DOING SO MAKES THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE

    One could also make an argument that the hiring of a cleaning service makes life easier for the cleaning service itself. Certainly the employees of the cleaning service will be earning monetary compensation for their services. This money can be used to then pay for the necessities of life including food, clothing, shelter and entertainment. Certainly with these needs taken care of one could argue that life is made significantly easier.

    Finally, one can make the argument that hiring a cleaning service will make the world a better place in which to live. The argument can be made like this. If a person hires a cleaning service to clean his or her home then he or she will be able to devote the time he or she would have spent cleaning his or her home to a more desirable activity. In the same way, another person who might have performed that more desirable activity no longer has to perform it and can then devote that time to an activity that is more desirable to him or her. Do you see the virtuous cycle that has been created?

    The Many Factors Associated With Water Damage Bountiful

    download (6)There are many distinct factors associated with water damage Bountiful that must be fully assessed in order to achieve a state of optimal readiness. The first of these distinct factors is that the water can cause a house or structure to become structurally unsound. When this happens the house should not be inhabited because it has the potential to collapse causing extreme injury, dismemberment or even death. Accordingly, if a house has been made structurally unsound due to water damage it is important that this damage be repaired by a professional and competent contractor who can return the house to its original state of structural integrity.

    ADDITIONAL WATER DAMAGE BOUNTIFUL FACTORS

    In addition to the factor of structural damage there are additional factors that must be considered associated with water damage to a house or structure. One such factor is the potential presence of mold resulting from water damage in the house or structure. Once mold has been detected it is very important that it be addressed immediately and professionally. The removal of mold is difficult and if not performed effectively, the mold can return and spread. If mold does exist in a house inhabited by people these people stand the risk of developing negative health impacts.

    The final factor associated with water damage to be addressed in this blog post is the fact that the house must be dried out before any repairs are made. The first step in this process is to remove any remaining standing water that is inside the house. This is usually performed through the use of a pump or wet vacuum. At that point the house is to be dried out thoroughly. This is accomplished through the use of fans, heat lamps and dehumidifiers. Once the house has been properly dried the structural repairs can then be made.

    The Chemical Properties of Water Damage Ogden

    images (2)Any reader of the Handy Man Home Tips blog will thoroughly understand the destructive power that water damage Ogden can have on a home or structure. Much of this destructive power has to do with the chemical properties of water itself. As any student of high school chemistry knows, the water molecule is comprised of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. This molecules contains multiple valences or opportunities to bond with other atoms or molecules. Without getting into complicated aspects of the science of chemistry this has to do with the number of electrons and their ability to enter the orbits of other atoms or molecules.

    THE CHEMISTRY OF WATER DAMAGE OGDEN

    When an atom or molecule bonds with another atom or molecule it forms a new chemical compound. For example, when the iron atom bonds with the oxygen atom (or the oxygen atom in the water molecule) it becomes iron oxide. Another name for iron oxide is rust. Now the physical properties of rust are weak from a structural standpoint. This is why rust can be so damaging to metal. That is, it weakens the metal’s ability to support weight without rupturing or breaking. This is also why it is highly important to protect structural metal components of a house or other structure from the corrosive damage that rust can cause.

    For this reason when a house has been inundated by a flood or other unexpected source of water it is very important that it be inspected for structural damage. One key component of this inspection would be an inspection for rust damage to any of the metal components of the house. If rust is detected it is very important that the metal affected by rust be inspected to determine whether it is still structurally sound. If still structurally sound, the rust should then be removed.

    February is Water Damage Bountiful Month

    StreamNever let it be said that Mike Bennet of the Handy Man Home Tips blog did not wish his loyal readers a happy Water Damage Bountiful month! I truly wish you and yours the most glad tidings of the season. At this festive time of year we should take a moment to pause and reflect upon all the water damage related blessings we have received throughout the year and be grateful for these blessings. For we all know too well that there are many people scattered across the Earth who do not share in the bountiful (no pun intended) blessings that we do.

    HAPPY WATER DAMAGE BOUNTIFUL MONTH TO ALL!

    It is easy to become involved in our every day lives and forget how good we have it. It is perfectly understandable. We all have our daily distractions whether it be family, job or any number of other things that occupy our time on a regular basis. And when we become involved in these day to day concerns we loose perspective and can no longer see the bigger picture of the reality in which we exist.

    Now, one might reasonably ask why it is important to have a view of this bigger picture. This is a reasonable question because we do not need this bigger picture to operate on a day to day basis. However, without this bigger picture the context of the day to day is lost. Without this context, a great deal of the meaning of life is lost. That is why it is so important to plug one’s self into this bigger picture, not everyday of course, but at least once in a while. This way one may reboot his or her perspective and refresh (so to speak) his or her sense of the importance of everything he or she experiences.
