More than a century ago Leo Tolstoy wrote about a greedy farmer in his tale, “How Much Land Does a Man Need?” This farmer was discontent with his life because he never seemed to have enough. He moved town to town looking for greener pastures and greater opportunity. On his journeys he heard rumors of a far-away place where a distant tribe possessed more land than anyone could walk over in a year; and it was all there for the taking. He went to investigate and found the rumors to be true. The farmer met with the tribal chief who informed him that he could in fact have all the land he wanted.
Lighting has so many functions and personalities that developing a thoughtful plan to incorporate function, drama, ambience, mood, tricks and style is always worth the time and money to get it right. Pre-planning a well thought out lighting scheme should be at the top of any remodeling or redecorating venture. There are so many ways both natural and artificial lighting affect any room and the people in it all day and all evening.
Summer vacation provides every student with a much-deserved opportunity for rest, relaxation and time with family and friends.

Here are some answers to a few questions you might have regarding the Common Application.
People speak about autism as if it were the embodiment of hopelessness. It’s a disorder marked by lacking — a lack of social awareness, a lack of communication skills from an early age, a lack of understanding of emotions — and one that doesn’t have a cure. It’s treated and discussed as if it were a death sentence for life.

The appearance of your skin, including the skin on your feet, is a reflection of what’s going on internally with your health. Dry, cracked heels are an indication that your body is out of balance, not an indication that you need an expensive foot cream or a pedicure.

If you believe your appearance is important and if you are concerned about looking your best with minimal down time, if any, perhaps you may want to consider Botox cosmetic surgery. Botox therapy is not a filler substance like Juvederm or Restylane. It does not directly affect the skin.
When the subject of retirement comes up, it often conjures up images of lazy afternoons on a hammock, leisurely walks in the morning sunshine, floating peacefully on a raft in the pool, and other such restful, relaxing ways to spend time. Or retirement often implies completing all of the things on a “bucket list” before becoming too old to do so. Although these can certainly be some of the well-deserved choices of retirement, they don’t necessarily have to define the entire experience. Creatively and conscientiously spending one’s time in retirement is worth a little thought and consideration. One of the ways to create a meaningful retirement is volunteering. It offers purposeful activity and a sense of giving back to loved ones and the community.

This common phenomenon can be very disruptive to family members’ sleep and can often cause loved ones to sleep in a separate room.

“Summer school:” These two words can sound like a one- to two- month jail sentence for students in school. Who wants to sit in class while their friends are out enjoying their summer vacation? Who wants to be the reason their parents have to postpone the San Diego vacation because their son/daughter must attend summer school? Even worse, to be left behind because they have to attend summer school while the rest of the family travels to San Diego. Either way you look at it, most students do not want to attend summer school.
