Guide to Outdoor Entertaining

On a warm summer day, there’s nothing more pleasing than hosting a backyard barbeque for your neighbors and friends. However, by providing a welcoming and comfortable feel, the atmosphere you create in your outdoor area can make a huge difference. 

To optimize your experience, you must create a lovely area for entertaining and at the same time make it casual and easy for you. The following guide will highlight a few important features of an outdoor space that are sure to please your guests and make you and your family feel more at home in your backyard. 

The Gathering Place

Creating a usable living space in your yard is an important part of outdoor entertainment. This space should provide plenty of room for visiting, cooking and eating with your family and friends. But it’s up to you if you want to go all out and have a contractor build an enormous wooden deck, or have a landscaping company construct an impressive stone patio. Or perhaps you are more of a do-it-yourselfer. If that’s the case, create something unique of your own.

What You Should Know Before Choosing a Storage Facility

What You Should Know Before Choosing a Storage Facility

If you’re moving to a smaller home or over a great distance, you may need the services of a storage facility. The amenities, cleanliness and security level offered may differ between units, even within the same company. Use these tips to decide which facility is right for you.

Know How Much Space You’ll Need

Storage unit sizes range from the equivalent of a utility closet (5 feet x 5 feet) to a standard one-car garage (10 x 30 or 10 x 40 feet). The space you need depends upon what you intend to store and your packing skills. Highly efficient packers can utilize as much as 80 to 90 percent of the space, while inexperienced packers may use only half. Another factor to consider is how frequently you’ll want to access your belongings. Tightly-packed units make it difficult to get to seasonally rotated items.

Big Stars Who Left TV Shows

Big Stars Who Left TV Shows

The characters on any great television show share a certain type of chemistry. As such, when any major role is eliminated, it always makes headlines. One of the most recent shockers was the exit of Patrick Dempsey from Grey’s Anatomy. The demise of his character Dr. Derek Shepherd has fans of the show reeling. In fact, a passionately written Change.org petition has been started to try and bring McDreamy back. Here are some of the biggest stars who left television shows.

Steve Carell

The American version of the comedy series The Office had a long run. It aired from 2005 to 2013 on NBC, for a total of nine seasons. The mockumentary followed a bumbling boss played by Steve Carell. When Carell left the show at the end of season seven, fans were at a loss for how the show could possibly continue. Others were surprised that he stayed as long as he did, considering the huge success he found in movies shortly after the start of the series. Following his departure, the boss position was temporarily filled by funnyman Will Ferrell. A number of critics and fans took issue with the quality of the show after Carell left and complained that it should have ended at that time. Ultimately, the ensemble cast proved strong enough for the story to continue for another two years.
