From small things to big things, here’s what fills some of our neighbors with gratitude.
Andrew Hill

Thanksgiving and the 2022 holiday season are just moments away, and with them come feelings of stress, anxiety, financial worries, and memories of family debates involving cranberry sauce and who should sit next to it. ‘funny-smelling’ uncle.

Oh…and grateful. Lots of that too for Gulfport residents, who had several servings of positive outlook to offer when asked what they were grateful for in the past year. Several gratitude lists included Gulfport as a safe and beautiful community.

“I love its little town,” said Jeanne Bower, a retired health care worker. “It’s walkable, there’s yoga on the beach…there’s so much to do in this community.”

Many Gulfport residents, including Tony Jenkins of South 50th Street, agree that they are grateful for how Gulfport residents take care of each other and keep their yards well maintained.

“People are always out mowing their lawns, all around the same time,” laughed Jenkins, who has worked at O’Maddy’s for 10 years.

Some counted blessings are quite simple.

“I’m grateful to have a roof over my head,” said Todd Morrison, a seven-year-old resident, while doing laundry at Deb’s on Gulfport Boulevard.

“I’m grateful to have a job that I love,” said Joey Vars, curator at the Gulfport History Museum. “I have always loved local history. There’s always something to learn, and helping others learn keeps the community heritage alive, and I’m grateful for that.

Thanksgiving is tied to historical imagery of early settlers and survival. April Hornsleth can understand. His family spans six generations in Gulfport dating back to his great-grandfather, George A. Jarrell, who first had to survive the Peshtigo, Wisconsin fire in 1871 at the age of 11. before reaching Florida.

“I’m grateful to have a wonderful family,” said Hornsleth, the granddaughter of RW Caldwell, who started selling real estate in Gulfport in 1937 and the namesake of the town’s oldest business.

“If we have a slight disagreement, we’ll sort it out and go out to dinner,” said Hornsleth, who will have family members aged 94 to 7 at her Thanksgiving table.

The sad truth: Having a meal under a roof would be a plus for some.

Paul is a 42-year-old homeless man who spends much of his time near Pavilion #3 near the Shore Boulevard volleyball courts. He doesn’t have any plans for Thanksgiving yet, but he spoke fluently of his gratitude for his place in a much larger world.

“I’m grateful to God and I know he’s here,” Paul said, leaning back on a lounge chair by the water. “(On Thanksgiving Day), I’ll just be sitting here, waiting.”

Paul said he is awaiting the outcome of a court case involving a real estate dispute that will grant his family the rights to land in mineral-rich Gulfport.

Christy has been living on a boat in Gulfport for a year and a half. The 20-year-old was walking barefoot around town with a friend’s friendly terrier Cocoa when she said she wasn’t really ready for Thanksgiving, but was excited at the same time .

“Living on a boat can be magical, but at the same time stressful and exhausting,” Christy said of her boat Ericson.

Bower remembers reading in Rhonda Byrne’s book “The Secret” that it’s wise to find recognition even in the worst of situations.

“My mother passed away on my second daughter’s birthday,” Bower said. “But I told my children that they now have another angel watching over them.”

While for some the ideal of having a year-round “attitude of gratitude” might be as cheesy as Thanksgiving pudding, Jenkins said there’s a virtue in teaching family values ​​such as gratitude.

“I spend time with my grandkids,” Jenkins said. “I teach them the same things my mom taught me, like how to share, say thank you, yes ma’am and no ma’am…just the basics.”

County Commissioner Kyle Ward plans to seek Knox County GOP chairmanship to replace 30-year-old Daniel Herrera, who ends his controversial term next February. Ward, 37, will not seek a second term on the County Commission if he is elected chairman of the local Republican Party.

Ward’s term on the board expires Aug. 31, 2024. It’s unclear who will run for that seat, but that same district narrowly elected Democrat Katherine Bike to the school board last August.

It’s unclear whether the next GOP chairman will attempt to field a Republican slate of candidates for mayor and city council. When Herrera tried that in 2021, it failed spectacularly.

Left to right, Knoxville City Council candidate Garrett Holt.  Jim Klonaris, Nick Ciparro, Kim Smith and Elizabeth Murphy at the Knox County Election Watch Party in the Press Room on Tuesday, November 2, 2021.

By the way, congratulations to Ward and his wife, Katie, who are expecting their first child, a boy, on November 30.

Meanwhile, the three city council seats as well as the district seat currently held by Charlie Thomas will carry over to the November 2023 election. Two of the three at-large seats have two or more candidates. Debbie Helsley announced her candidacy for the third seat held by Janet Testerman; Testerman has not yet indicated his plans. Helsley ran for mayor of the county last August and won in town against Glenn Jacobs by a 60% to 40% margin.

Knox County GOP Chairman Daniel Herrera reads the top winners May 3 during the GOP election watch party at Crowne Plaza.

The town’s mayor, Indya Kincannon, had a large crowd for her 2023 re-election kickoff. She could wrap up the election sooner if she wins 50% of the primary vote, plus one. In this case, the candidate wins the race without being required to stand in the general election. Kincannon had an impressive host committee, including Republicans such as former councilman Larry Cox, attorney Howard Vogel and former city police chief Phil Keith. Keith Lyon, a former police officer, says he will show up, but has not been seen to date.

If you spend your days decorating bedrooms with trendy colorful throw pillows and high gloss lacquer furniture, you might be tempted to fill your home with more of the same. But for LA-based props and interiors designer Scott Horne, it’s just the opposite. His 1941 Streamline Moderne home in the city’s Silver Lake neighborhood is a study in timeless, understated, and moving design. “When I come home, I like to have a break from the visual world I live in,” he explains.

Think: stone, ceramic, rattan, wood and metal mixed together with a deft hand – call it a cocoon of style. “I’m by nature a nest,” says Horne. “I want to create an environment where I feel most at peace. I have found that neutrals and natural textures do this for me.

Although the fireplace isn’t working right now, Horne is heating up the place (at least figuratively) with his collection of ceramics from flea markets and vintage shops. Artwork, The Mart Collective.

While he often works in large homes and on elaborate sets for brands like Parachute Home and Target, his own place has a footprint of less than 1,400 square feet. A plus for him, in fact – fewer parts equals less maintenance, which is crucial for someone who isn’t home often.

Then there is the sunken living room. This main space has plenty of light and a green view thanks to a wall of casement windows. “When I sit on the couch, I see nothing but the sky and the treetops,” says Horne. “I do everything here…entertain, watch TV, take naps.” There are multiple seating areas to do so, due to little wall space and an off-center fireplace. A plush sofa and vintage armchairs serve as the living room; a modernist French bistro table and carved wooden chair provide a place to have tea or tackle your favorite Piecework puzzle; and the cozy nook to the left of the fireplace is where he meets up with his friends on the phone.

It's only 1,400 square feet, but every bowl, basket and spoon has its place in this LA stylist's home

Horne is mainly inspired by vintage design books and art. Pencil Roseau Coffee Table, Brocante Rose Bowl.

Stocking the house with his coveted furniture collection wasn’t a problem, but peppering all of his interesting objects – decorative boxes and bowls, art, even spoons – presented a challenge: with the exception of the fireplace and a few ledges of window, there was a lack of sills in the living room. A cleverly placed wall shelf above the windows (accessible via a vintage ladder) holds her art and photography books, while tables are tucked into several corners to display vignettes of ceramics, baskets, and sculptures.

gallery wall on white paneling

Horne discovered the chairs at a consignment store in the San Gabriel Valley and reupholstered them. (There’s a rumor they once belonged to the owners of In-N-Out, California’s iconic burger chain.) Carved travertine cocktail table, CB2; TV frame, Samsung; vintage lamp; Work, Maeght Gallery.

“I’m drawn to things that have wear and patina,” he says. “Things that have a history compared to simple manufactured items on a store shelf. I feel like they’ve lived a life. A great example: A vintage trunk that doubles as a side table next to it. of the couch. Horne fell for the distressed leather and worn brass details. “I like to think of the treasures that have been safely stored there over time,” he says. For his part, he keeps his photos favourites, old mixtapes and souvenir albums inside.

dining room with wooden table and chairs

“I like things that are classic with clean lines and things that have age but also work really well,” says Horne. Chandelier, Modern Amsterdam; Dining table, chairs and credenza, Midcentury LA; Vintage bowls.

Horne painted every inch of the house with his favorite “not too white” paint, Benjamin Moore’s White Dove, which he also uses on set. It has the added bonus of showcasing the wide original wall panels and providing a gallery-like backdrop for Horne’s eclectic art collection, admittedly one of his cheap thrills. “Art is very important to me, and I get a lot of inspiration from galleries, museums and studios, but I rarely spend money on it,” he explains. Instead, he searches flea markets, estate sales, and old art books for hidden gems. (Plus, a good setting can turn the everyday into the extraordinary.) Seeking clients is another route to new discoveries, like Portland, Oregon artist Nicole Neu’s muslin-mounted paper work hanging from the above the sofa.

Although the pieces do not follow any formal style or school, they have similarities: abstract, contrasting and tactile. Always the curious hunter, Horne rotates them regularly. “I wouldn’t say I’m fickle; it’s just a really quick refresher for me,” he says. When not on display, the stylist stores them in her accessory closet or under the bed until their next debut.

Where it splurges is on the lighting, and it shows in the number of lamps in each room (there are six in the living space alone). “The lighting is everything for me,” says Horne. “It sets the mood. I like really low ambient light, so I need a lot of it. With a few exceptions, like a floating lantern, his finds are almost exclusively vintage.

eclectic corner of sunny living room

library decorated with many objects

side table with lamp and collection of objects

Often commissioned to create multifunctional spaces for magazines and catalogs, Horne didn’t shy away from transforming the second bedroom into a hybrid study space. A vintage daybed doubles as a dorm and sofa, while the game table doubles as a desk. To make up for the old house’s lack of closets, he put a bookshelf to work, cleverly hiding office supplies, his magazine archive, and other household necessities in as few containers as possible — his key to visual calm. Although they don’t need to be standard boxes; Horne will also sprinkle into unexpected containers like a vintage jewelry box or picnic basket.

For her own room, Horne pared everything down for a luxury hotel vibe. “I want it to feel like I’m still having a really good vacation,” he says. Having styled hundreds of beds, her feathered nest is unlike any other, with an overstuffed headboard, three sets of pillows, and layers upon layers of percale and linen bedding. A nice desk and cabinet provide a second limited storage situation.

white sink with round mirror

Another passion of Horne? Plants. The stylist gives pride of place to ferns in the kitchen; when he couldn’t fit a coffee table and chairs in the breakfast nook, he swapped them out for a huge zinc planter filled with them. Just outside, the new hard-paneled multi-level patio is more Mediterranean than SoCal. Containers abound with drought-tolerant olive trees; delicious; and Westringia fruticosa, a rosemary shrub. “I love that when you go out it feels like a little escape,” he says.

simple white kitchen

More potential projects are on the horizon: maybe Horne will open up a kitchen wall to take advantage of the living room view. Maybe he will add a bathroom. But for now, the house is an honest reflection of where and who Horne is today. “I really feel like myself here,” he says. “There is a reason and a purpose for everything. Walking through my house is like looking at yourself in a mirror.

I didn’t want a sister, but I’m so glad my daughters have one https://fuzerestaurantandlounge.com/i-didnt-want-a-sister-but-im-so-glad-my-daughters-have-one/ Mon, 14 Nov 2022 10:00:25 +0000 https://fuzerestaurantandlounge.com/i-didnt-want-a-sister-but-im-so-glad-my-daughters-have-one/ I remember getting the note.

I remember getting the note. I sat outside on a lounge chair enjoying some alone time and the fresh air as the nausea lingered in my bones. And then the phone rang. “Do you want to know the sex of the baby? asked the nurse. “Of course,” I replied. With three children already – two boys and then a girl – my intuition told me it was a boy. ” It’s a little girl ! she said happily. Oh shit, I thought. Sisters.

As an eldest with two younger brothers, I have no personal sibling experience. While most of my sisterless friends often expressed a desire for this kind of relationship, I didn’t. I really loved being the queen bee of my childhood, and every sister relationship around me felt more like a headache than a blessing. Even for most of my adulthood, the sisterly relationships around me seemed complicated and charged. And to be honest, I had no interest in dealing with this in my nuclear family.

But two years raising sisters and nine years mothering women with sisters and me may have changed their minds. Because even though the relationship still seems complicated, I think the built-in life support it offers might outweigh all of that.

I hope my daughters find amazing allies in each other. Growing up in this current social and political climate that is not always rewarding for women (to say the least), they can lean on each other for support and guidance. They can create a safe space for understanding and validation where they share their unknowns, fears and insecurities. I would have benefited immensely from a sister during some of my most embarrassing and awkward teenage experiences.

A sister can also be a unique empathic support when you are going through life’s major events. With deaths in the family, pregnancy complications and the trauma of motherhood, a sister could walk by your side with constant support. Requiring no similarity of any kind, but rather a deep understanding of your roots and life experience that would allow for maximum comfort.

And there’s something about mothering alongside a sister that feels particularly special. Loving each other’s children in a specific and unique way and sharing the burden of everyday life, and giving each other the freedom to ask for help when needed without the same guilt associated with other family members or friends. The sisters often seem able to seamlessly replace each other in different circumstances, knowing each other in a way that most others cannot.

So while I spent most of my life feeling grateful for my sisterless existence, the last years of my life and motherhood gave me a deeper appreciation and yearning for that bond as I move forward in the last stages of life. I am grateful that even though my daughters will inevitably encounter hard times and fight over a coveted jacket or spin with the car, they will have a deep appreciation for each other later in life. Because while friends and other family members can be essential in someone’s support system, healthy fellowship is especially enjoyable.

Auburn football has a new home.

On Friday, the program unveiled the new Woltosz Football Performance Center, a $91.9 million football-specific Tigers facility that began construction in March 2021 and was recently completed. The team is expected to move in “soon,” but not before the end of the regular season.

Local media were treated to a Friday tour of the facility, which is also open to the public for tours from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. this Friday and next Friday, on the eve of Auburn’s home final against the West from Kentucky.

Mississippi State is in John Cohen’s DNA, but ‘lots of wows’ drew him to Auburn as DA

Goodman: Give the Cadillac coach a shot at the job

You can watch a video highlighting the visit at the top of this page. Below is a description of the walkthrough provided to the media:

At the entrance to the facility, a public lobby welcomes visitors and features nearly 2,000 square feet of digital media panels, as well as a display of the team’s BCS National Championship trophy. This leads to the facility’s main entrance, showcasing the program’s NFL pedigree and highlighting Auburn’s professional players.

This corridor is divided into three points. To the left is the new weight room, which features 22 weight racks downstairs, cardio equipment upstairs, an indoor ramp for conditioning exercises (like the one outside the athletics complex), and measures 25,000 square feet, roughly the size of the new Publix in downtown Auburn. Each weight rack includes a Perch system, with a camera that analyzes players’ reps and movements, providing data for feedback and analysis. This data can be displayed on the video board in the weight room for competitive use within the team, rack by rack.

The lighting in the weight room is made to look like eagles in flight, and there is also theatrical lighting in the middle of the room that is able to focus on each weight rack for dramatic effect on rehearsal days. maximum. According to Gregory Forthofer, Auburn’s capital programs manager, “special attention” was given to the design and upgrade of the weight room.

Next to the weight room is the new indoor training facility, which includes all LED lighting, has better acoustics than the current indoor training ground, and has more track between the training ground and the walls. Along one side of the indoor facility are three garage-style doors that lead to the two outdoor practice courts. The indoor facility benefits from much more natural lighting, with glass fronts throughout. The speaker system, installed on each column of the facility, can reach 130 decibels to help simulate crowd noise. These columns also feature CATAPULT antennas to set GPS parameters to track technology on players – speed, player performance rating and more. There are no video towers in the indoor facility or outdoor courts, with Auburn opting for more modern technology for shooting practices. There is a remote video studio with 10 workstations to monitor and edit training footage, with cameras strategically placed in the indoor and outdoor courts. These cameras also include microphones that communicate with the workstations, in case a coach wants a specific drill or game zoomed in or highlighted in the studio. The outdoor driving ranges also feature LED lighting to reduce light pollution in the area.

Next to the training grounds is the sports medicine area, which Forthofer says was another area highlighted during the design process. The room features registration tables on one side, examination tables in the middle, and rehab stations along the wall facing the outdoor courts. Major upgrades have been made to the hydrotherapy aspects of the facility, with four wet pools, including a HydroWorx 2000 aquatherapy pool that features an adjustable underwater treadmill for rehabilitation and underwater cameras to observe. There’s also a hot tub, cold tub, and large plunge pool, which is kept between 53 and 55 degrees for players to soak in for 10 minutes after practices. Its proximity to the training ground is also strategically planned in case a player overheats during training.

Down the halls is an equipment innovation lab and showroom that includes a 3D printer and a Falcon Pursuit machine that provides full-body scans – with 1,000 photos taken on a 360-degree rotating system – to provide accurate data points to analyze and overlay player performance in real time on a screen and develop braces and other equipment.

The first of two locker rooms has 125 lockers for clothes, with a TV screen with each player’s name, a storage drawer, a cup holder and a zero gravity chair. In the middle of this mudroom is a lounge area, with custom ottomans, gaming chairs, and other seating, as well as a 9-foot-by-28-foot concave video wall that can play videos, TV, and video. video games. Above the living room is a felt overhang intended to resemble the rolled oaks of Toomer’s Corner. This locker room also has a hair salon.

The second locker room is designed to prepare for training and is more like a locker room. Forthofer called it an “arsenal”, where players will keep their football gear. The separate locker room for this purpose was inspired by the locker rooms of the NHL, in particular the one used by the Nashville Predators.

Upstairs is a 180-seat team meeting room that can be partitioned into two separate 90-seat rooms. According to Forthofer, Auburn scoured the Chicago Bears and Miami Dolphins facilities extensively for ideas. At the college level, Clemson, South Carolina, Troy, West Point and Northwestern also served as inspiration. Also at professional level are the aforementioned Predators facilities, as well as some English Premier League clubs. The idea was to make the facility comparable to these, but find ways to separate Auburn’s new state-of-the-art facility from its peers.

The last stop on the tour was a passageway that led to the station’s meeting rooms. Everything in these meeting rooms is mobile; no fixed chairs, for more flexibility. The Tour Room features three projectors that stitch together a life-size image on the wall to help navigate specific situations and send opponents running. LSU, as well as the New England Patriots, Chicago Bears, Miami Dolphins, and Houston Texans all have this technology in their team facilities.

McD’s New Toasty Chair Deal: Are You Excited? https://fuzerestaurantandlounge.com/mcds-new-toasty-chair-deal-are-you-excited/ Wed, 09 Nov 2022 10:27:28 +0000 https://fuzerestaurantandlounge.com/mcds-new-toasty-chair-deal-are-you-excited/ If there’s one thing we know about video gamers, it’s that they love cutting edge and quality food.

If there’s one thing we know about video gamers, it’s that they love cutting edge and quality food.

Gamers love comfort, they love good food, they love scrutinizing the hardware they’re going to buy down to the last decimal place, and what’s better than using a dedicated food chair? After all, that was the only thing missing from our lives, comfort and food, now we have comfort merged with food.

It’s a neologism to help us understand this new offering from the gods of fast food and unfortunate whaling, McDonald’s.

The official McCripsy gaming chair is now available for McDonald’s fans

In fact, we were just waiting for something like this to be created, after all before video games, food and games were even an integral part of something like a game night, made more evident than when they went to hunting, people hunted for a game.

Although today most people don’t need to rummage and struggle for food, at least in the developed world, we are always looking for new ways to ingest games when we are at home. search for our games.

Today we can order food for our beloved twitch streamers, so why risk coke spilling on our precious keyboards and controllers, greasy fingers melted by the heat of cooling fans, or even Gaben us? preserve, from missing a Half-Life 3 Easter egg in a Valve Game, while rushing for snacks.

McDonald’s should not be left behind and other companies have jumped on the bandwagon of the colossal video game industry, never too late, better than never, I say.

And it looks like they’ve chosen to compete with other game companies where they’re best suited, obe-, I mean nibble. Or in this case, snacking on chairs. It makes sense, if you’re good at getting people to sit down and eat, then focus on that, focus on what you’re good at, that’s the only way to be successful.

And that’s exactly what they did, ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the absolute food coma, The McCrispy Ultimate Gaming Chair, not to be confused with the UFC, where you have to exercise, even if it’s just your fingers.

It has a range of features your McFingers can take advantage of, such as:

  • A French fries holder
  • Two dip holders
  • A hot box for hot meals
  • Stain resistant leather for an extra sexy look
  • A phalanx of particles targeting independently, just kidding, we’re just checking to see if you’re still paying attention, and
  • As you guessed it, modular, yes you heard it right, modular armrests so you can effortlessly change food while swimming in GTA V.

For the hapless uninitiated, this pleasant luxury is not for the gambling peasant, but for the aristocratic blue blood of the game, you must participate in a raffle, a raffle prize, win, then you can taunt your salty enemies in the game, while you taunt your belly with salty fries.

Its name comes from a new burger offering in Britain by McDonald’s, called, you guessed it, The Crispy, Large and Sumptuous Chicken Burger, which incidentally fits perfectly into your food case. lounge chair.

McDonald’s has tried to indulge in gaming culture in the past, with their FaZe Clan partnership to bring you special peripherals with their Thanksgiving, Friends Game offers which you can check out in reference two if you wish it.

They added crispy chicken sandwiches with their happy peripheral meal, it could be a theme.

All we’re hoping for right now is that one of the other big players like Wendy’s or Burger King brings us a bread-encrusted laser gaming mouse and that’ll make our day, I say.

All That Crispy Really Wants Us To Give Everyone A Mortal Kombat GATE !!!!

Who wouldn’t want to live 274 meters above sea level, enjoying Australia’s highest swimming pool? Well, read this before you decide it’s not you…

8801/222 Margaret St, Brisbane, QLD

I know a guy who likes to wash his windows. He’s out there for hours on end most weekends with the steam cleaner and chamois doing all he can to make those bad boys shine. I don’t know why – his wife is beautiful. Go inside and hang out with her, Bradley!

Personally, I’m not very good at washing my windows. If they are cleaned once every two years, that’s good enough for me. More often seems excessive, if I’m being honest. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll clean a cobweb if one appears (with the longest broom on the market because I’m rightfully terrified of those hellish beasts, as any sane person would be), but I only clean them more often than I don’t have to.

It’s not good for them to be too clean anyway. I learned this the hard way a few years ago when I washed them inside and out and in three days I had seven birds that rammed into them and died. The glass was so clean the birds just couldn’t see it. They’re out there flying, singing about spring or transitional finance or whatever the birds sing (we may never know) and then nekminnit, bang – they meet their maker .

That’s why I’m not so keen on buying this tri-level Brisbane penthouse. Sitting atop the Brisbane Skytower complex, some 274m above the ground, it’s a celebration of style, luxury and glass, which is the problem. You see, a building with apartments of this caliber, you just know that a regular window cleaning fee is going to be built into your contract. It has to be – building owners and residents will want those windows to shine all year round.

Which means if I buy this skyhome, I’ll spend my days watching the birds strike them. If that’s what happens to window cleaning at my house, imagine how much worse it will be here, especially when I have the highest swimming pool in Australia for them to drink from. I’m going to have to fight this by putting up expensive curtains, blinds, plantation shutters – whatever I can to try and keep those pesky birds from getting wiped out. It’s my duty, really.

Now, I don’t know if a bird would reach terminal velocity from a height of 274m, but if a coin falling from the top of the Empire State Building could kill a man, you’d have to assume it’s of a dead or unconscious bird in an uncontrolled free fall would do similar damage.

So no, I’m not buying this place, because I don’t want the hassle, expense or liability.

In fact, a quick Google search shows that the vast majority of birds in this country fly within 500 feet. This home sits approximately 899 feet above the ground. Which means my concerns about bird collisions are misplaced. In fact, the likelihood of a bird hitting the windows is, fortunately, quite minimal. It will not arrive. Most of them don’t fly high enough to cause a problem.

So this whole discussion is redundant. In the words of my greatest hero, the late Canadian comedian Norm MacDonald: “I don’t want fancy or fancy stuff. I don’t even want fancy, fancy stuff, or fancy, fancy stuff like a trip to France. What I want is to waste your time and mine. Nice place though…

Since you’ve made it this far, here’s a dream house from the Vault:

13 Creswick Street, East Brighton, Victoria

Have you ever visited the neighbors, sat with them, shared a meal and listened as they invited you not only into their home but into their world with stories of their family, their hopes, their dreams, fears and worries?

Have you ever participated in a human exchange with your neighbor so profound that it touched you deep inside and made you feel that the sheer likelihood of you living randomly next to them was not simply luck or chance, but could only be fate, fate or come through the orchestration of a divine being?

You’ve come out of such a deep interaction before and thought, “I’m going to buy their house, slumber their memories, and make this my garage.”

That’s what the owner of this Brighton East property did. Took his neighbour’s house – a house that likely played host to scenes such as a young couple excitedly bringing their first newborn baby home from the hospital; a family’s last special Christmas lunch with a loved one; a father comforting his daughter as her world crumbles after her first high school romance broke down and the first grandchild was welcomed into the fold – and used it as a place for his cars to drain.

#YOLO.

Nature takes center stage in this four-bedroom Colonial on over 2 acres, from the beam work and hardwood floors to the expansive mullionless windows that capture natural light and the beauty of the wooded grounds.

The home sits on over 2 acres.Whitney Shaw from Best HD Tour

Terracotta tiles line the entrance hall, with a double-door closet to the right providing a place to store jackets and shoes. Straight ahead is a family room with beige walls and exposed beams running through the ceiling. There is room for a sofa and a few chairs around the brick fireplace, which has a built-in wood stove. Across the street, a small tiled section of the family room with large windows overlooks the courtyard pool. The lighting in this room is recessed and the parquet floor is oak.

The formal dining room sits deeper in the house and features white upper walls and beige lower walls bisected by a chair rail. A four-light rail hangs from an exposed beam above the dining table. Two windows provide unobstructed views of the surrounding forest and a set of glass doors lead out to the pool area.

Modern, recessed light fixtures cast a warm glow over the dining room’s oak flooring.Whitney Shaw from Best HD Tour

To the right of this room, an open layout encompassing an informal dining room and the kitchen runs the length of one side of the house.

The kitchen has white cabinets, dark granite counter tops and oak flooring. The counter is L-shaped, with two pendant lights hanging above the shorter leg, which provides seating for two. The sink is diagonally facing the dining area. A glossy subway tile backsplash in a variety of whitish hues lines two walls. The appliances are all stainless steel and the lighting is recessed.

In the dining room, one wall is lined with almost floor-to-ceiling windows and a sliding glass door opens onto a wooden deck. There is enough space for a dining table that seats six and a built-in pantry with double doors sits to the right. Recessed lighting and exposed beams also continue throughout this area, with an elegantly sculpted support beam at its center.

A cloakroom with hooks for coats and bags and a built-in wooden bench serves as a link between the kitchen/dining room and a living room where four white built-in bookcases line one wall and there is more than enough space for two chairs, a coffee table and a sofa. A set of three windows let in natural light. The walls in this room are grey, the floor is oak and the lighting is recessed.

A hallway to the right of the living room contains a powder room with beige walls, white beaded paneling, a console/pedestal sink and a glass window. A laundry room completes this floor.

The stairs to the second floor are to the right of the fireplace in the family room. The first bedroom on this level is the 552 square foot owner’s suite, which faces the side yard and gunite pool. The ceiling is vaulted and the space features slanted windows, exposed beams, a ceiling fan, oak flooring and sconces mounted either side of the bed. A wood-burning fireplace offers a convenient way to keep heating bills under control, and two walk-in closets with double louvered doors fill the right wall. (The owners never used the fireplace, though.) A sliding glass door at the far end of the room leads to a balcony with enough room for a few lounge chairs.

The owner’s suite bathroom features square 50s-style black and white tiles that run throughout the space and halfway up the walls. The fiberglass tub/shower combo has jets and the double vanity is topped with Corian. A skylight fills the space with natural light.

The remaining three bedrooms, which range from 114 to 225 square feet, are found at the end of the hallway. The two largest bedrooms contain a ceiling fan, a double door closet and several windows each, while the final room, which has an exposed beam running through the ceiling, is set up as a home office.

These bedrooms share a full bathroom with a tub/shower combo and a double vanity topped with white Corian that complements the seafoam-colored cabinetry. The floor is gray tile, and jeweled frames line the two mirrors above. above the vanity. The windows, including a skylight, let in lots of natural light.

The house offers a total of four bedrooms. Whitney Shaw from Best HD Tour

Vienna, Austria

Designed by EOOS, Forsi is a collection of conference furniture designed to meet the needs of modern meetings.

A pun derived from the ideal size of a productive and effective meeting – four to six people – Forsi creates an environment that is neither too formal nor too relaxed.

The Forsi chair is offered in an innovative work lounge height, ideal for promoting creative thinking, and the Forsi table is offered in either the same work lounge height or the traditional conference height.

This is the first contract furniture ranges from Keilhauer to offer this unique height option – it strikes the ideal balance between conference room formality and living room relaxation.

Forsi was designed to encourage and elevate the way people think, create and collaborate in the office.

“When designing Forsi, we asked ourselves: what would a perfect meeting look like? says Gernot Bohmann, EOOS designer.

“We realized that “the perfect meeting” is the solution between the conference and the trade show. We wanted to find a new typology, a new height and a new unknown place – this is where Forsi exists.

“The Forsi chair is a combination of a conference chair and a lounge chair, with a soft and luxurious feel,” adds Mike Keilhauer, president of Keilhauer.

“With its matching lounge height, the Forsi table complements the chairs beautifully, but the Forsi pieces have also been designed to stand on their own if desired.”

By Lisa Smith Molinari

Dear (insert friend’s name here),

I can see it in your eyes. You are not happy. You think I ignored you. You think I’m a horrible friend.

Not so long ago we were close. We talked on the phone. We have eaten lunch. We met at the gym. We exchanged text messages. I showed interest in your life.

But lately I’ve been distant. I didn’t call. I stopped meeting you for coffee. I didn’t “like” this picture of your kids on Instagram.

To be completely honest, I didn’t give you a second thought.

But before jumping to conclusions, let me assure you: I’m not tired of you. I don’t hang out with other friends. And I certainly haven’t forgotten you. The thing is, I haven’t thought much about you, or anyone else for that matter, because our family is moving again.

Including (insert transitional housing, for example: those months we lived in that creepy, carpeted townhouse before closing our first home, and the six months we rented that awesome beach shack in Florida pending basic housing), our military family has moved (insert number, eg 11) times since my spouse and I married (insert number, eg 29) years.

I don’t have a stomach ache. Many military families have moved far more than we have, others less. Plus, I’ve enjoyed every place we’ve lived. Well, except for (insert worst accommodation, for example, this townhouse. We had to clap twice before entering the kitchen to scare away the cockroaches, and it smelled like pickled moth balls).

Frankly, it doesn’t matter how many times a military family moves. What matters is that every move, whether overseas or across town, is a big ordeal. The kind of thing that destroys daily routines, challenges the strongest coping skills, and turns grown adults into bad-tempered little brats.

This happens every time my (husband/wife) receives orders. My demeanor doesn’t change at first, but as our moving dates approach, I slowly retreat into my own chaotic, stressed-out little world. My normal daily thoughts about (insertive thoughts, eg, dog hair, brisk walks, coffee, thawed chicken, Friday night hearths) – are slowly being replaced, one by one, by frantic ramblings and strange inner voices , until I became a military spouse precariously perched on the threshold of soulful madness.

“How did we accumulate all this bullshit? We need more plastic storage bins! What happens if I forget to call to turn off the cable? We have to plug this hole in the wall before the housing inspection! What if we go over the weight limit again? Why didn’t I remove the stickers from the furniture from our last move? »

Be warned. In the days before the packers arrive, I will become so self-absorbed that I will be unable to have normal social interaction. In a subconscious attempt to push other humans away and thereby minimize distractions, I will stop showering, brushing my hair, and applying deodorant. I’ll become so determined to use our food that I’ll whip up weird casseroles with things like pork chops, oyster crackers, canned green beans, raisins, and tater tots. I’ll walk around the house armed with Sharpie markers and a clipboard, mumbling something about ziplock bags and duct tape, my left eye twitching from a stress-induced tick.

It’s not a pretty sight. But at this point, I really don’t care about my rat’s nest hairstyle, the drool on my chin, the luck of the neighborhood, the next episode of Survivor, or you. Because all I can think of is one thing: our next move.

As I write this, I have exactly (insert number) days until the moving company arrives to pack every coffee mug, photo album, extension cord, lounge chair, lampshade, screwdriver, textbook, holiday ornament, bicycle, pencil and photo frame we own.

The reason I love you is because you understand. Until our household items arrive at their new destination, until we find the towels, sheets, dishes, TV remote and coffee maker, and until I collapse on the couch in our new home and taking a deep breath – I won’t realize how much I really miss you.

Thank you, my friend, for always forgiving me.
