Daylight Saving Ends This Weekend - Fall Back!

November 2nd, 2012 - 8:17 AM
Unless you're in Arizona, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, or the Northern Marianas Islands, don't forget to set your clocks back this weekend! Daylight Saving Time officially comes to an end Sunday, November 4th.

And you know what that means... an extra hour to do whatever you wish! If my kids will participate, I plan to sleep (and I consider that a gift). What about you? How will you spend your extra hour?

Whatever you choose – enjoy!

October 30th, 2012 - 7:27 AM

Absentee voting is voting by someone who is unable to vote at their official polling station.

Self-Service Moving with U-Pack

Self-Service Moving
Self-service moving isn’t limited to truck rental any more (yay!). Now you have more options that include doing your own loading and unloading but letting a professional do the driving. If you ask around I think you’ll find that many of your friends, family, and neighbors (or someone they know) went the “you pack, we drive” self-service route when they moved. It’s definitely catching on.

If you’re new to the concept, let me explain briefly who U-Pack is and how the service works.
