We were making do with a space heater in the master bathroom...but the technician wasn’t in a big rush. He offered to order a part and maybe see about coming out on Monday. I was so frustrated by all the calls and all the effort it took to get help that I went on the computer and searched for Bryan Bellamy’s company, All Out A/C.
Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Are you prepared? Before you snag a store-bought bouquet or some pre-packaged chocolates, stop and think about what Mom really needs...a little time to relax! Sal Lucatero, co-owner of Professional Maid Service says, “The moms in our lives have enough to do without scrubbing and scouring, too! Check cleaning off mom’s to-do list by giving that job to us. Just like you, our teams use name brand-products to deliver a serious sparkle and we don’t believe in cutting corners!”
“We first knew we had foundation problems when we noticed cracks in the detached garage,” says local resident LaDonna Marie. “We called a foundation company, and learned our slab was sinking in the house. But nobody, not that company nor the other foundation companies we contacted, thought the problems were large enough for traditional foundation repair work.”
You look at them every day of your life: the shower that no amount of harsh chemicals and scrubbing will ever make clean again; the kitchen countertops that have dents, burns, and scratches. Those are the little details that make a home feel worn out and used. But what can you do? A big redecorating project is out of the question and out of your budget--not to mention the inconvenience of having to live out of suitcases at a motel during the installation. Aren’t there any better options?.
On one harrowing day in the line of duty, Stafford Police Officer Ann Marie Carrizales took two bullets at point-blank range (including one to her face!)...and still managed to chase down the alleged gunman! Almost eighteen months later, she needed to go to the emergency room.
But that time we lavish on others and refuse to spend on ourselves catches up with us, doesn’t it? Before long, all the self-care we put off until “later” can lead to things like cavities, discolored teeth, or a crooked smile with gaps. Your family certainly deserves your time and attention...but, Mom, you’re worth looking after, too!
Last year Officer Mark Somer discovered that he had a potentially dangerous blood clot. He says, “I went to my family doctor and saw several specialists but I ran into dead ends. No one could help...and I became frustrated. Finally my hematology doctor recommended Local Vascular Surgeon, Ulises Baltazar MD, RVT, FACS.”
“We first came up with the idea of Dekker’s,” says Mike, “because we wanted another nice restaurant in our community. A place for our family and friends to meet and enjoy great food prepared with the finest and freshest ingredients possible.” And that’s exactly what Dekker’s has been giving the people of Fulshear and the surrounding areas since 2012.
In 2005, together with children Kevin and Karen, the family opened their first restaurant, Mojitos Cuban Bistro in Sugar Land, Kevin says, “Mojitos was extremely successful for us, and we learned a lot, but we wanted to venture more into fine dining,..and in 2008 we came up with the concept of Veritas.” Veritas Steak & Seafood (Veritas is the Latin word for truth) specializes in the finest cuts of USDA Prime beef, fresh seafood, and homemade pasta. “Our menu is seasonal,” says Kevin, “it changes four times a year, and always features the finest and freshest ingredients possible.” And the world class wine list includes more than 300 selections from around the world.
