Now, during the year, whenever one of those people on the list expresses a desire for an item that would make an appropriate Christmas gift, or if an idea for a gift pops into my head, I plan to add that item under his or her name. This is going to make Christmas shopping so-o-o much easier this year. It will also allow me to watch for sales on some of the items in order to cut back on Christmas spending.
Furthermore, this tip also applies to everything else in your house – including your clothes, personal effects and others. Doing so would benefit you when it comes to the next tip.
First you will be walking around the outside of the home. Look for cracked window glass repair kit, paint chips on the stucco, areas on the eaves that may need some repair or painting. You won’t be able to get on the roof to check for broken roof tiles. If you had landscaping put in by the builder check to be sure that the drip system is working correctly and all the requested plants are there and in good shape rather than on the brink of death. Be sure the latch works properly on the electrical box, gates are self closing and latches are functional as well as all the bricking on the fence is in good order, no loose or broken bricks.
The interior, including your office and garage areas, need to be clean and tidy as well. If you can imagine walking into a body shop that’s a complete mess on the inside, you can understand why customers might be put out.
5) Tinted or frosted windows. Another alternative you can use is tinting your windows, especially if the windows are always getting the harsh afternoon sunlight. Not only can it offer privacy, it can keep the room cooler by blocking the sunlight. Another option is using frosted windows that you normally use in the bathroom; it can offer privacy all day long, without the need of an actual window covering. This is a great idea for windows that do not have any good views or is just facing directly to your neighbor’s windows.

Be professional. From the moment you answer your phone until you report back to the client with the results of your paranormal investigation, your character and your professionalism is showing. Make sure that the client sees what you want them to see. If you answer the initial call with “Yo. What’s up baby?” You just might lose a potential client before you even hear his story. Although you need comfortable clothing during an investigation, it is not an excuse to wear ratty or dirty clothes. Clean jeans and a tee-shirt are fine, but be conscious of inappropriate logos.
Sports. If you like to catch the big game, or all of the big games each season, there’s no better way than by satellite. Invite pals over to make it a ‘game night’ any night of the week!
The leaded panel was very tight in the framework, which is rare, and I had to gently work the panel loose so as not to break it. This installation had one piece of tempered glass on the outside of the door frame and then the art glass. In our studio we insulate window units so that there is tempered glass on each side of the art glass.
