Do You Have Rules About How You Are Creative?
It may be time to rethink those rules and break out of a rut that is limiting your creative powers.

#creativity   #productivity  
We tend to think the way we like to create is the ONLY way for us. But in life, change is inevitable so don't let your past thinking stifle your creativity.

I had some leaking inside and around my chimney, and I called Lucius for an estimate. I was immediately impressed with the friendly demeanor on the phone and the level of professionalism. DJ came out to give me the quote. He was very knowledgeable and even reminded me to look for a 10% coupon to offset some of the cost. Once I was ready to make the repair, DJ and an assistant came back out and worked about half a day to get the job done. They communicated well what they were doing and their comings and goings for lunch break. The guys were very friendly, well-spoken, respectful, and very willing to answer my (probably goofy) questions. In the days after the repair, we had heavy wind and rain and no water leaked on the ceiling around my chimney nor did water come through the chimney. The problem certainly seems fixed! I am 100% satisfied with Lucius Roofing.

Tripp at Wired to Go did a fantastic job on my under cabinet lights in my kitchen remodel. I have one side of the kitchen on one dimmer and the other side on another. He came out first to assess the situation and show me my options for dimmer switches. Once it was time for the work to happen, Tripp was more than willing to coordinate with the tile installer to help me get the work done faster. My wiring was a bit tricky up in the attic, but Tripp got it done without any complaining or extra fees. The lights are fantastic for giving me a very visible work surface in the kitchen. I don't even need the overhead lights because the under cabinet lights focus the light right where I need it. I get so many compliments on my tile backsplash because the lights really set them off. The wires are all discreetly hidden inside the cabinet. I have to look to see them, and even then I often can't find them. About a week after my installation, I noticed that the lights on one side of my kitchen would not longer totally turn off. I gave Tripp a call, and he showed up the next day at my convenience to replace the dimmer. That solved the problem. Tripp is a nice guy. Dependable, honest, and stands behind his work. I recommend him.

We booked a combination Tiki Beach and wreck snorkel package with Norwegian Cruise Lines. Of our three ports of call, this was my favorite because it was close to the docking location and didn't require long transport elsewhere. Tiki beach was beautiful! One side had a very noisy bar with a not so family-friendly atmosphere. We stuck to the other side of the beach where it was less riotous. I only wish that there had been pleasant music playing instead of the blaring techno-dance stuff that was blaring from that crazy bar. We had a very delicious, yet expensive, meal right on the beach. Do be careful because the prices are in Cayman dollars not USD. We expect to spend a lot on vacation. Don't let it ruin your experience. Just enjoy the food. It really was excellent for beach fare. We had conch fritters, a Jamaican jerk pork panini and a Jamaican jerk chicken and pasta dish. Just excellent food with fresh ingredients. I am somewhat of a foodie, and I was impressed. The beach was beautiful white sand and despite the raucous music a very delightful way to spend a few hours. I highly recommend it.

We booked a shore excursion with Dolphin Cove through Norwegian Cruise Lines in Dec. 2013. It was an outstanding experience. Our guide was Tracey Morgan. She made the long van ride enjoyable by sharing facts about Jamaica and its history. She was very clear about what we would experience, how much time we would have, and when to be back on the van. We were pleasantly surprised to find that our lunch was included in the excursion even though we were told by NCL that no food was included. At Dolphin Cove, the shop keepers were friendly and even offered free samples of the famous Blue Mountain coffee and local rum. The photographers took dozens of photos and had them printed out almost instantly for us. We did the shark experience where we touched and swam with nurse sharks. Amazing. Just amazing. Demetrius walked us through the process step by step, making sure we would be safe in the water with the sharks. The actual experience was just like he prepped us. The guides were amazingly friendly and seemed very passionate about their jobs and making sure we had a great time. And we did. I fully recommend the Dolphin Cove for family fun in Jamaica. It was a fantastic experience. I only wish we had had a full day to spend there.

In one month, I've had to call Mr. Rooter twice. The first time was a frozen pipe in the attic that resulted in water gushing from the ceiling and walls into two rooms in my house. Being a new home owner, I didn't have the tool I needed to turn off the water main. As I watched my house flood and waited for the water department to show up, Bob Geisenhoff drove through my neighborhood in a red Mr. Rooter van! (It was a miracle!) I flagged him down and asked for help. Of course, he had the needed tool and shut my water off lickety split. Better yet, he outlined who we needed to call and the steps to take to fix the damage and the plumbing. He was calm and helpful and really helped me put the whole situation into perspective. He came back in a few hours to get the plumbing sorted and our water back on. Later he made the needed repairs to totally fix the situation. In all, he spent a lot of time with us explaining all of our options, answering all of my very ignorant questions, and helping us choose the best course of action. He is an amazingly patient man. Again this month I have had a broken pipe! But this second time, I knew what to do. I have my own water key now, so I can shut off the water main. And my next step was to call Mr. Rooter and ask for Plumber Bob. He was there within three hours to quickly solve the problem and tell me how to prevent it. Bob is a genuinely nice guy who really cares about the home owner. I am a sold out Mr. Rooter fan because of him.

We booked an excursion to Xcaret through Norwegian Cruise Lines. In terms of the park itself, it is an outstanding experience. I give it five stars. However, in terms of a cruise excursion, don't do it. Because your time off the boat is so limited, I don't recommend Xcaret as a cruise excursion. Your ship lets you off in Cozumel, quite far from Playa Del Carmen. For us, we had to take a tender (boat) to the dock and then another boat (maybe 40 minutes) to Playa Del Carmen. From there, it was a short 15 minute van ride. The park is very huge and full of fun things to do. We had only 3-4 hours, and we left feeling cheated of all the wonderful activities we didn't have a chance to do. We did swim in the partially underground, partially above ground artificial "river." That was fun. We also saw many of the aquatic animals and ate an amazing seafood buffet on the beach. It was expensive ($29 per person) but oh so delicious. Afterwards we lazed for a while in hammocks on the beach as a local band with accordion and guitars played. It was the epitome of a vacation moment -- beach, sunshine, light music, a happy belly. I actually dozed for a few minutes. But then we jumped up to enjoy the rest of our limited time at the park. It felt rushed, and we hated to leave when our time was up. If you are taking a vacation to Playa del Carmen, I highly recommend the park. But for a cruise excursion, the time is just too short.

You will not find a more patient, upbeat medical office anywhere in the Memphis area. The office staff (especially Maria) is incredibly friendly. And it's not a fake smile just to get you out the door quicker. There is a genuine concern about your health, your pain levels, your financial matters, your scheduling issues, etc. Dr. Wilson patiently answers my questions week after week and is supportive of our medical choices. The massage therapists are professional and skilled. The physical therapists are just the right blend of kindness and toughness. I take my daughter to her appointments there, so I get a chance to stand back and watch what goes on. When people are in pain, they can be rude, impatient complainers. I see patients like that there. But the staff at Spinal Health Care astounds me with their kind replies in dealing with all kinds of people. I never see anyone treated as a second class citizen; I never hear trash talk or gossip in the halls. These people are professionals, and they all seem to truly enjoy their jobs.
