John Soliman Your Our Only Hope

May the fourth be with you! The unofficial holiday that fills your social media streams and one of the days a year where it’s okay to show your nerdy side (besides talk like a pirate day).  For Star Wars fans this year is especially exciting as the new trilogy of movies begins this December with the release of Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens.

May the 4th kicks off the Star Wars celebration each year. And also because six of the live action movies of the Star Wars saga was debuted in the month of May. Walt Disney World Resort also joins in the celebration with their traditional start date of Star Wars Weekend on May 14th, which happens to be George Lucas’ birthday,

Even NASA gets into the spirit.

Happy Earth Day Tampa Bay

Happy Earthy Day my fellow Earth peeps! April 22, 1970, marked the first celebrated Earth Day and now is a global day of celebration in more than 192 countries each year. It all started with an environmental teach-in, United States Senator Gaylord Nelson, founded this day to be of education about environmental awareness.  Senator Nelson hoped to raise national spotlight bringing awareness of air and water pollution.

Happy Earth Day Tampa Bay FLThe 1970’s were a huge push for important legislation that were passed such as; the Clean Air Act, the Water Quality Improvement Act, the Endangered Species Act, the Toxic Substances Control Act and the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act. Also, in December 1970 the Environmental Protection Agency was established to protect human health and safeguarding the natural environment.

So, how have you spent your Earth Day so far? What? You didn’t even know it was Earth Day? No worries, make everyday Earth Day! Here are a few easy ways to make your Earth a little greener;

Gas Guzzler
Keep your motor vehicle tuned up, check your tire pressure often, or thinking about a new vehicle look for one that will get better gas mileage. You know it won’t hurt you to jump on that bike to go a mile down the road to grab that bag of chips, not only that you will work off some calories before you indulge on those chips! All of these will help reduce emissions and make the Earth smile.

Stop The Leaking
Do you leave the water on while brushing your teeth? You know you do, we are all guilty of it at one point of time. Try to make yourself aware of turning the water off. What about that leaky faucet in your kitchen that you have been “meaning” to get to. Yes, I made air quotes towards you! Just one drop of water per second wastes over 1,300 gallons per year!

Mean Green Cleaning Machine
Next time you go purchase cleaning products, look for products with out chlorine or petroleum distillates. These are harmful to the environment, not to mention your family and pets. Go for the naturally derived products, which are safe to use.

Growing Like a Weed
We all dread the day we have to go weed our landscaping. They just keep coming back! So, you spray a little weed killer here and there… this isn’t the only way to control those annoying weeds. Invest in some great gardening gloves and tools and remove them by hand. It will be healthier for the environment since you won’t be using harsh herbicides and you will be outside in the fresh air working out those arms and legs by pulling out those mean weeds since you haven’t did it in two months!

Those Blue Cans
Hillsborough County’s recycling program went to Blue rolling carts back in 2013, Fill It, Tilt it, That’s How We Roll, was the motto. Hillsborough County made it easier to recycle by going single stream. Meaning, you can mix all the recyclables together in the rolling card without sorting. Have you made an effort to recycle instead of just tossing it in the trash? This is an easy way to make your home greener! These are the items that go into those big Blue recycling cards;

• Glass bottles and jars
• Aluminum cans and foil
• Steel and tin cans
• Aseptic containers, gable top cartons (milk jugs, juice boxes)
• Paperboard (cereal boxes, food and beverage boxes)
• Mail, magazines, newspapers, advertisements
• Writing papers, pads, notes
• Corrugated cardboard boxes
• Paper bags
• Any other paper that is clean, unsoiled and tears
• All plastics labeled No. 1 through 7 (including foamed Polystyrene/Styrofoam)
• Plastic grocery and shopping bags
• Plastic packaging
• Plastic film (cereal box liners, clean plastic storage bags)

What CANNOT be processed:

• Soggy or soiled paper that has been used for cleaning people or pets
• Light bulbs
• Glass windows, mirrors, dishes and cups

Happy National No Housework Day

We all live for the weekend, we all look forward to a break from work, commuting, and being a taxi cab for the kids. The weekend is a time finally time let loose, catch up on that laundry pile that is pushing it’s way through the closet door, and we get so excited that we get to clean the house. Says no one in the world! Okay, we all dread cleaning the house. There just isn’t time in the day for everything… and if there was a 25th hour, you know you would totally have an excuse on why you couldn’t clean.

That’s why today is a day to celebrate, today is Happy National No Housework Day! No excuses, put that house work and cleaning off for today. It’s one national “holiday” that insist that you put down those cleaning supplies and just kick back and relax. Housework Cant Kill You But Why Take a Chance - John Soliman and Associates

It’s for your health! Doctors and health experts say that it is essential for people with busy lifestyles to factor in time to relax. Relaxation can lower heart rate and blood pressure, reduce headaches, and improve concentration.

A 2008 study conducted at the University of Michigan found that the average married American woman does 17 hours of housework per week!

So, relax. Take a long over due mini vaca for yourself. And just say NO to housework!

Oh, did we mention that National No Housework Day coincides with National Beer Day?
