Look Your Best With These Barber Tips from Classic Cuts & Shaves Barber Shop!

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Wednesday, November 8th, 2017 9:00 AM CST

They’re a traditional barbershop with a bit of “modernism”, focusing on precision men’s haircuts and shaves that’s what makes Classic Cuts and Shaves so great. While visiting, enjoy free Wi-Fi, plenty of men’s magazines, a cup of coffee or a soda and be sure not to leave without picking up some grooming products made just for men.

With three other professionally trained barbers, they can provide you with professional, top notch male grooming services. Whether you desire to be a part of a traditional rite of passage and patronize a men’s barbershop, or prefer to have a full menu of salon services available to you all in one place, we all should be a part of the style conversation rather than reciting the number of a clipper comb. Allow your stylist or barber to bring a personal touch to our next haircut. So let me bring you back to hair basics with some terminology (see below) to use when visiting a barbershop (or even salon stylist). Knowing how to describe what you want will help help you avoid any haircut mishaps.

  • Buzz – The length of hair is clippered down to be equal all the way around.
  • Caesar – This style is to be worn with short sides and nape, textured on top, with the movement of the hair and bangs going forward.
  • Cowlick – Where the hair pattern grows in a swirl and typically found at the crown or hairline.
  • Crew – A style where the sides and nape are cut very short and the crown is slightly longer, following the shape of the head.
  • Crown – This is the top of your head where many cowlicks tend to reside.
  • Design – Images are carved typically into a faded cut and are simple to intricate.
  • Fade – An extreme version of a taper cut working with very short lengths.
  • Flat Top – Just like it sounds, literally the top is buzzed straight across leveling out the crown.
  • High & Tight – Your typical military cut with a sort of landing strip going down your crown.
  • Layering – A technique used to create dimension in the hair and if not layered, you can end up with a bowl haircut.
  • Nape – This is at the base of your neck hairline and can be either tapered to gradually fade out to your natural hairline, or blocked off to have a square or shaped appearance.
  • Part – A line that runs through your scalp and is often found in more conservative haircuts.
  • Pompadour – The sides and nape are short, while the top is left long then styled forward and brushed back.
  • Razor Cut – A straight edge that is used to cut the hair in a choppy, less uniform fashion.
  • Receding Hair Line – Where the hairline has moved back further due to thinning or hair loss.
  • Steps – Lines are cut into the temples of a faded cut creating a design of steps.
  • Taper – Graduating hair-length where it is shorter at the temples and nape and longer at the crown.
  • Texturizing – Creating dimension and thinning through sections of the hair.
  • Thinning – A technique using special thinning shears that takes bulk out of thick hair.

Classic Cuts and Shaves (Click Link to Fan Page) is a great place to get a shave and a hair cut. Also, to be more in touch with the buy local community, fan the page!

Help Local Businesses When Buying Small Ticket Items, Pay Cash. Also, Tip with Cash. A Friendly Message From Kentucky CPS & Buy Local Bowling Green!

MexOut is one of our clients that uses the Clover Point of Sale. That said, use cash if you can!

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Thursday, October 19th, 2017 1:00 PM CST

I know it seems odd that a company like Kentucky CPS suggests to pay cash for items when they make money off credit card processing. Well, that’s what we love about local businesses like Kentucky CPS. They want what is best for their clients. We know sometimes you just forget cash or can’t make it to the bank before shopping. We understand. Still the fact remains, The Durbin Amendment, enacted in October 2011 as part of the Dodd-Frank Act, set a cap on the amount financial institutions can charge merchants to process debit card transactions. Before the Durbin Amendment, retailers paid an average of 45 cents every time they swiped a debit card. Now, the max card companies can charge is about 21 cents per transaction.

That sounds good for retailers and good for business until you look at the unintended consequences of how credit card companies have responded to the legislation that has limited their ability to charge for processing services.

In the wake of the Durbin Amendment, card companies have done away with discounts they used to give on transaction fees for small amounts, usually under about $10. Now, companies such as Visa and MasterCard charge many small merchants at the max rate of 21 cents.

Most of all it means the profits of many of our local restaurants and bakeries are paying more and making less every time you swipe your card. National companies like Redbox added a $.20 extra fee to make up for it. If you are buying a set of tires or paying for cup of coffee, the interchange fee is the same. The Government intervention in the interchange system will most likely boost profits for giant national retailers but it will clearly harm the interests of our local businesses that deal in small tickets. Sometimes you can’t help but to use a credit card. If you can, try to use cash for those under $10 to help our local businesses. Plus, tip with cash. It’s much easier to deal with for the servers at restaurants.

If you are a local business that is trying to save money on processing, contact Kentucky CPS. Locally you can contact them at 270-303-4982.

Capitol Window and Door is a second-generation family business that has been serving the residents of South Central Kentucky since 1956. Capitol Window and Door has a reputation throughout this area for professionally installing quality products at fair prices and standing behind its work. A good reputation isn’t something we bought, it’s something we earned by diligently serving the area for more than 60 years.

“A Trusted Name to Improve Your Home Since 1956” is more than just a slogan. Ask anyone who has lived in Bowling Green for a long time who to call about your windows and doors. They’ll tell you Capitol Window and Door or Capitol Aluminum, as some people call us. Ask enough people and eventually someone will sing you the Capitol Window and Door jingle!

MILLENNIAL PINK: The New Color Creative Interiors Wants YOU To Consider!

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Monday, October 16th, 2017 9:00 AM CST

The following from Creative Interiors:

😍😍😍😍😍😍MILLENNIAL PINK😍😍😍😍😍😍

Some say it evolved from the super popular “Rosegold” shade of the 2015 iPhone edition. Others claim that it all started in 2014 from Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel. Yet another voices shout that it was Pantone and their Rose Quartz, and later Pale Dogwood, that have initiated the trend. No one really knows where it came from or who invented the name – most cannot even agree on how it actually looks like. Still, Millennial Pink is here and the worlds of fashion and design are swooning over it. This amazing color, combining the tasty hues of grapefruit, apricot and salmon, breaks the common misconception that pink is just for girls.

Millennial Pink is truly the color of our times – unobvious, androgynous, and, in a sense, ironic. Did you know that over a century ago, pink (and, as a matter of fact, all tones of red) was reserved just for boys as a fierce, brave and energetic shade? Perhaps with that knowledge you will look at Millennial Pink more kindly, and apply it to your interior without a slightest doubt. The color goes beautifully with black, grey, white and other pinks – it will simply rock in any Shabby Chic, Vintage, Minimalistic or Scandinavian interior!

Fan Creative Interiors page on facebook, on Instagram and enjoy their tips and treats for the Bowling Green Home on their website www.creativeinteriorsbg.com! Their showroom is located at 5280 Scottsville Road across from Greenwood High School.

Buy Local Tobacco for Your Local Loving Cigar Smoker at Bowling Green Pipe and Cigar.

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Thursday, September 28th, 2017 5:00 PM CST

The Cigar Smoker is a tough one to buy for but make it easy this Valentine’s Day. One thing we love with Southern Kentucky’s  local businesses like Bowling Green Pipe & Cigar give us options like the Kentucky Fire Cured cigar.

screen-shot-2016-11-20-at-8-49-16-pm

The biggest difference with Kentucky Fire-Cured is the inclusion of – you guessed it! – American fire-cured tobacco leaves from Kentucky and Virginia. While normally tobacco is air-cured, these special leaves are left to hang in specially-constructed curing barns, a process that dates back more than 200 years and that imbues each leaf with a rich, smoky, slightly sweet flavor that boasts exceptional balance and uniqueness. Notes of oak, hickory, and maple-laced sweetness explode on the palate.

Gift Cards are available which is another great reason to choose the local shop over online. Check out Bowling Green Pipe and Cigar onfacebook. Located at 434 East Main on fountain square you can reach them at 904-2285. Open Monday through Saturday 11:00 am-8:00 pm.

Your Child’s Baby Teeth are important! Keep Baby Bottle Tooth Decay Away with tips from Destiny Dental!

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Tuesday, September 19th, 2017 5:00 PM CST

Your child’s baby teeth are at risk for decay as soon as they first appear—which is typically around age 6 months. Tooth decay in infants and toddlers is often referred to as Baby Bottle Tooth Decay. It most often occurs in the upper front teeth, but other teeth may also be affected. In some cases, infants and toddlers experience decay so severe that their teeth cannot be saved and need to be removed.

The good news is that tooth decay is preventable! Most children have a full set of 20 baby teeth by the time they are 3-years-old. As your child grows, their jaws also grow, making room for their permanent teeth.

Cleaning Your Child’s Teeth 

  • Begin cleaning your baby’s mouth during the first few days after birth by wiping the gums with a clean, moist gauze pad or washcloth. As soon as teeth appear, decay can occur. A baby’s front four teeth usually push through the gums at about 6 months of age, although some children don’t have their first tooth until 12 or 14 months.
  • For children younger than 3 years, caregivers should begin brushing children’s teeth as soon as they begin to come into the mouth by using fluoride toothpaste in an amount no more than a smear or the size of a grain of rice. Brush teeth thoroughly twice per day (morning and night) or as directed by a dentist or physician. Supervise children’s brushing to ensure that they use of the appropriate amount of toothpaste.
  • For children 3 to 6 years of age, use a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. Brush teeth thoroughly twice per day (morning and night) or as directed by a dentist or physician. Supervise children’s brushing and remind them not to swallow the toothpaste.
  • Until you’re comfortable that your child can brush on his or her own, continue to brush your child’s teeth twice a day with a child-size toothbrush and a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. When your child has two teeth that touch, you should begin flossing their teeth daily.

Call Destiny Dental for more questions about Dental Insurance or to see if you a can schedule an appointment. They are located at 1720 Destiny Lane and can be reached by phone at 842-3554. Don’t forget to fan them on facebook.

Buy Local Bowling Green Kitchen: Plant Based Baked Oil-Free Hushpuppies!

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Saturday, August 19th, 2017 12:00 PM CST

We are not what you would call a “Home Chef.” In fact I’m not very good coming up with great ideas for recipes. That said, I can follow a recipe and thevegan8.com had a great recipe we had to try that reminded us of our Summers south of the Kentucky border at Family reunions.

We love Hush Puppies but we wanted a healthier recipe. Trying out this Plant Based Baked Oil-Free Hushpuppies. They taste great and aren’t greasy as the ones most are used to. HERE IS THE Ingredients and Instructions:

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed (7 g) mixed with 3 tablespoons warm water, about 45 ml)
  • 1 cup corn FLOUR, not cornmeal (130 g, we used Bob’s Red Mill Corn Flour )
  • 1 1/4 cups almond meal (125 g,)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (really gives depth of flavor, don’t omit)
  • 4 teaspoons coconut sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped white onion (58 g)
  • 3/4 cup “lite” canned coconut milk (shake the can well prior to measuring. Or sub with another creamy milk like soy or cashew, creamy is best)
  • Optional: 1/4 cup corn kernels (We didn’t add any to mine, but I know some people like corn in their hushpuppies)
  • Coating:
  • 2 tablespoons corn flour (15 g)
  • 2 tablespoons almond meal (12 g)
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • Note: These hushpuppies use corn flour and almond meal for their base. It gives them a wonderful, soft texture and keeps them moist so they are totally oil-free. Neither one of these flours can be subbed!

Instructions

  1. Mix your flaxseed with 3 tablespoons water and warm for 20 seconds in the microwave. You want the water very warm, this will help the flaxseed mixture to gel up really well and act as an “egg”. Set aside while you prepare the other ingredients.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cornmeal, almond meal, baking powder, cayenne pepper, coconut sugar and salt and whisk everything really well until mixed. As always, for accurate results, use a kitchen scale to weigh your flours. When measuring the almond meal, scoop it up with your measuring cup and lightly pat down and then level off with your finger.
  3. In a separate small bowl, add the white onion and coconut milk (shake can first) and stir well. Add the reserved flaxseed mixture and stir until well mixed. Pour over the dry ingredients and stir with a spoon until it all comes together into a thick, sticky batter. It should be soft and sticky. Now, you could roll them into balls now if you like, but they will be a bit sticky to deal with, so place the batter into the fridge for one hour and then proceed.
  4. After the batter has chilled, preheat your oven to 400 degrees and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  5. Mix together the “coating” ingredients well into a small bowl with a whisk. Roll all the dough into 16 balls about the size of golf balls. Put a little corn flour on your hands to combat the stickiness. Coat each ball well with the coating mixture, shaking off any excess. After I coated each one, I rolled into my palms again to keep the round shape. Place them on the prepared pan and bake for 8 minutes, flip them over and bake another 7 minutes (15 minutes total), so they get a nice golden brown color on each side.
  6. Let them cool just 10 minutes on the pan, then devour! These are best eaten immediately the day they are made, as they tend to dry out later. Eat them on their own or dip them in ketchup or mustard or even thevegan8.com’s  Lemon Pepper Cream Sauce .

Total Eclipse at Spencer’s Coffee Shop! Be there and be caffeinated in the momentary darkness.

Bowling Green has the fortune of being in the “Path of Totality,” aka the optimal viewing range for August 21st’s total eclipse of the sun — and it just so happens that Spencer’s courtyard will have a direct view. So for those of you who want to sip or sup while you savor this once-in-a-lifetime sight, Spencer’s invites you to join the crew out back! Grab an iced latte, lunch, or even a beer at the courtyard bar (it’s a very special occasion, after all). The eclipse phase starts just before noon, and TOTAL ECLIPSE will be visible for 45 full seconds at 1:27pm. We’ll even have free eclipse-viewing safety glasses (with purchase) for the first 150 guests!

Check out our latest episode of SNAPSHOT: EPISODE FOUR FEATURING Jesus Puga of Mexout!

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Monday, July 17th, 2017 3:00 PM CST

This week we discuss the immigrant life of Jesus Puga and his parents. Jesus and his family arrived from Mexico when he was 8 years old and their drive and determination built to where they are today, with a successful Mexican Restaurant in Bowling Green. It’s not always been easy though. We discuss how College Graduation of 2008 was tough for Jesus as the job market dried up, how he got his work ethic from both sides of his family, cliff jumping, hiking and his need to find good dumplings in Southern Kentucky. We dive deep in what is REALLY Mexican food and what is not and how to be as local as possible when running a local based restaurant.

What Have You Missed the Past Two Weeks at Rian’s? These Two Sold Out in One Day.

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Thursday, June 29th, 2017 9:00 AM CST

We love walking into our local butcher Rian’s Fatted Calf. If not for the pleasant faces ready to take care of us the great options being added daily. Like our favorite (due to our increase of veggies):

Our love of Sunny Point, both styles of potatoes and also the peppers keeps us consistently visiting. Side note: That Maple Syrup is local (Logan County) and the best I’ve ever had. Then there was the Shark. That’s right, Shark. It was caught on a Wednesday in Hawaii and on your plate Thursday in Bowling Green. Rian’s Fatted Calf will from time to time get Mako Shark Filets available from Honolulu, Hawaii.

Before leaving the shop in downtown Bowling Green we spoke with JD Bakery about their plans to stay active catering and slinging product. Well, you can get all those items you have been missing at Rian’s Fatted Calf (also with their milk):

Lastly, the past two weeks Rian’s has had a special aged meat on sale that sold out in a snap. You have to follow them (or us) on Social Media pretty closely to know when it’s available for sale. I am speaking of the 65 day dry aged Prime Tomahawk Ribeye just in from Georgia!

Also, Check out much of their local meats, eggs and dairy products that are available. We always look forward to working with ‘Rian’s Fatted Calf Meat Market.’ Go check them out at  1505 Us 31w-Bypass. A great place to make your food that much better. Also, fan their facebook page!

Why Choose Capitol Window & Door, Like we did?

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Monday, June 26th, 2017 9:00 AM CST

We recently wrote about how our experience with Capitol Window and Door was a fantastic experience from start to finish. We added a storm door and when we had a question after installation it was answered immediately. But, here are some other reasons to choose Capitol.

Reputation: Capitol Window and Door has a reputation throughout South Central Kentucky for installing quality products at fair prices and standing behind its work. A good reputation isn’t something we can buy, it is something we have earned serving the area for 61 years. Remodeling contractors are one of the top categories for complaints received by the Better Business Bureau. Since the establishment of its current database in 1993, Capitol Window and Doorhas had a total of zero complaints lodged against it.​

Installation: It could be argued that who puts your window in is more important than what you put in. Capitol has been using the same professional installer, Tim Womack, for more than 23 years. We take pride in our reputation of providing the best craftsman installer for your installation needs.

Quality: Even if installed correctly, the quality of your replacement window still makes a big difference. At Capitol, we use only the highest-quality products from companies like Earthwise Windows, Soft-Lite, Alside and ProVia. We personally inspect every window or door to make sure it conforms to the highest standards of quality.​

Service: What if you have a problem with your windows? Your windows are covered by a lifetime transferable warranty. You may say, “Big deal, lots of windows have a lifetime warranty!” That’s true. But a warranty is only as good as the company that backs it. We have been in business for 61 years and plan on being around another 60. If you ever do have any problems or questions about your windows, we are here to make it right! We could stand on our windows, but we prefer to stand behind them!​

Personalization: The windows we install in your home don’t just come off a shelf somewhere. Each window is custom built specifically for each window opening in your home. Windows are available in double- and triple-pane, with custom color exteriors, a variety of interior finishes and in several different styles.

Durability: Not all replacement windows are the same. Although most look very similar, what’s inside makes a big difference! All of our windows are made from 100 percent virgin vinyl. All of our vinyl extrusions are double walled for extra strength, and all of the horizontal parts of the window sash contain reinforcement for additional strength. Extra strength means durability and security.​

Longevity: All of the replacement windows we sell come with a lifetime transferable warranty. Many of our windows feature additional glass breakage warranties and many of our doors feature lifetime warranties, as well.​

Value: At Capitol, we understand that there is more to value than a cheap sticker price. We use only the best materials and the best people to construct and install our windows. Using superior products and professional installation means we only have to do the job once. Offered at competitive prices, Capitol truly offers you the best value for your money.​

Longevity: All of the replacement windows we sell come with a lifetime transferable warranty. Many of our windows feature additional glass breakage warranties and many of our doors feature lifetime warranties, as well.​

Trust: At Capitol, we do business the right way. We are fully licensed and insured, and we stay up to date with our industries best installation practices. We are fully qualified to comply with the recently enacted Environmental Protection Agency’s lead renovation, repair and painting rules. We are an EPA-registered renovation firm and employ an EPA-certified renovator. After April 22, 2010, any window installation firm or contractor working in structures built before 1978 must have these qualifications. Violators of this law are subject to federal penalties of $37,500 per day, per violation.

Help Local Businesses When Buying Small Ticket Items, Pay Cash. Also, Tip with Cash. A Friendly Message From Kentucky CPS & Buy Local Bowling Green!

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Friday, June 23rd, 2017 9:00 AM CST

I know it seems odd that a company like Kentucky CPS suggests to pay cash for items when they make money off credit card processing. Well, that’s what we love about local businesses like Kentucky CPS. They want what is best for their clients. We know sometimes you just forget cash or can’t make it to the bank before shopping. We understand. Still the fact remains, The Durbin Amendment, enacted in October 2011 as part of the Dodd-Frank Act, set a cap on the amount financial institutions can charge merchants to process debit card transactions. Before the Durbin Amendment, retailers paid an average of 45 cents every time they swiped a debit card. Now, the max card companies can charge is about 21 cents per transaction.

That sounds good for retailers and good for business until you look at the unintended consequences of how credit card companies have responded to the legislation that has limited their ability to charge for processing services.

In the wake of the Durbin Amendment, card companies have done away with discounts they used to give on transaction fees for small amounts, usually under about $10. Now, companies such as Visa and MasterCard charge many small merchants at the max rate of 21 cents.

Most of all it means the profits of many of our local restaurants and bakeries are paying more and making less every time you swipe your card. National companies like Redbox added a $.20 extra fee to make up for it. If you are buying a set of tires or paying for cup of coffee, the interchange fee is the same. The Government intervention in the interchange system will most likely boost profits for giant national retailers but it will clearly harm the interests of our local businesses that deal in small tickets. Sometimes you can’t help but to use a credit card. If you can, try to use cash for those under $10 to help our local businesses. Plus, tip with cash. It’s much easier to deal with for the servers at restaurants.

If you are a local business that is trying to save money on processing, contact Kentucky CPS. Locally you can contact them at 270-303-4982.

S&R Tire is a Best One Tire & Service Groups chosen dealer for the Bowling Green area.

What makes us so afraid? We just don’t want to make the wrong decision. Then how do we get through the design process or remodeling?

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Wednesday, May 17th, 2017 7:00 AM CST

Repost from Blog’s Original Post on creativeinteriorsbg.com:

Making any decision is hard, even a small one.  We know that it will impact EVERYTHING!  So we are afraid to decide.  What makes us so afraid?  We just don’t want to make the wrong decision.  Then how do we get through the design process or remodeling?

One step at a time.  Yes, the impact of your decision to buy a stainless steel dishwasher or a BLACK stainless steel dishwasher does affect the feeling of the room.  It will not impact the performance of the dishwasher in anyway but we do want it to match.  Well, match what??  Should we match the faucets that are brushed nickel?  Or the light fixtures that are chrome?  Let’s start with the first standard which is all appliances should be the same finish.  That being said, if you choose Black stainless steel appliances that doe NOT mean you need to have black faucets.  We look at the room as a whole and decided how to make it balance.  In this case, appliances need to compliment the cabinets.  No punch of color here!  See it’s really just a process of elimination.  What color will work best with the cabinets?  If you have white cabinets, either will work.  Stained cabinets go with stainless steel.  Most painted or glazed cabinets will lead toward either one as well.  Base the decision on which one you liked initially and go with it.

 

 

cr-home-ii-black-stainless-samsung-10-15cr-home-ii-black-stainless-lg-10-15

 

See that wasn’t so hard.  After 3 or 4 decisions are made you will see the room come together.  Then each decision will get easier because you have a direction.  Of course, if you struggle you can always call a interior designer/decorator for assistance.  Sometimes it is good to have someone look at the project from the outside and give advice.  Girlfriends are always great to help but we want them to stay our friends.  A good decorator will sit down with you and help you decide what is important and how to prioritize.  You don’t need to have them for the whole project if it is cost prohibited but I think you will find a new friend that is objective to your wants & needs.

Your Child’s Baby Teeth are important! Keep Baby Bottle Tooth Decay Away with these tips from Destiny Dental!

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Monday, May 15th, 2017 3:00 PM CST

Your child’s baby teeth are at risk for decay as soon as they first appear—which is typically around age 6 months. Tooth decay in infants and toddlers is often referred to as Baby Bottle Tooth Decay. It most often occurs in the upper front teeth, but other teeth may also be affected. In some cases, infants and toddlers experience decay so severe that their teeth cannot be saved and need to be removed.

The good news is that tooth decay is preventable! Most children have a full set of 20 baby teeth by the time they are 3-years-old. As your child grows, their jaws also grow, making room for their permanent teeth.

Cleaning Your Child’s Teeth 

  • Begin cleaning your baby’s mouth during the first few days after birth by wiping the gums with a clean, moist gauze pad or washcloth. As soon as teeth appear, decay can occur. A baby’s front four teeth usually push through the gums at about 6 months of age, although some children don’t have their first tooth until 12 or 14 months.
  • For children younger than 3 years, caregivers should begin brushing children’s teeth as soon as they begin to come into the mouth by using fluoride toothpaste in an amount no more than a smear or the size of a grain of rice. Brush teeth thoroughly twice per day (morning and night) or as directed by a dentist or physician. Supervise children’s brushing to ensure that they use of the appropriate amount of toothpaste.
  • For children 3 to 6 years of age, use a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. Brush teeth thoroughly twice per day (morning and night) or as directed by a dentist or physician. Supervise children’s brushing and remind them not to swallow the toothpaste.
  • Until you’re comfortable that your child can brush on his or her own, continue to brush your child’s teeth twice a day with a child-size toothbrush and a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. When your child has two teeth that touch, you should begin flossing their teeth daily.

Call Destiny Dental for more questions about Dental Insurance or to see if you a can schedule an appointment. They are located at 1720 Destiny Lane and can be reached by phone at 842-3554. Don’t forget to fan them on facebook.

One step at a time.  Yes, the impact of your decision to buy a stainless steel dishwasher or a BLACK stainless steel dishwasher does affect the feeling of the room.  It will not impact the performance of the dishwasher in anyway but we do want it to match.  Well, match what??  Should we match the faucets that are brushed nickel?  Or the light fixtures that are chrome?  Let’s start with the first standard which is all appliances should be the same finish.  That being said, if you choose Black stainless steel appliances that doe NOT mean you need to have black faucets.  We look at the room as a whole and decided how to make it balance.  In this case, appliances need to compliment the cabinets.  No punch of color here!  See it’s really just a process of elimination.  What color will work best with the cabinets?  If you have white cabinets, either will work.  Stained cabinets go with stainless steel.  Most painted or glazed cabinets will lead toward either one as well.  Base the decision on which one you liked initially and go with it.

See that wasn’t so hard.  After 3 or 4 decisions are made you will see the room come together.  Then each decision will get easier because you have a direction.  Of course, if you struggle you can always call a interior designer/decorator for assistance.  Sometimes it is good to have someone look at the project from the outside and give advice.  Girlfriends are always great to help but we want them to stay our friends.  A good decorator will sit down with you and help you decide what is important and how to prioritize.  You don’t need to have them for the whole project if it is cost prohibited but I think you will find a new friend that is objective to your wants & needs.
