Pruning will also help your tree produce an abundance of new growth, including more fruits and flowers. Another benefit of pruning is that it keeps pests away and prevents tree disease. Getting rid of dead wood can be done at any time. However, for most big trees, the best time to prune is late winter, when... Continue reading

by Shawn Kyles Recognizing the signs of foundation damage can mean the difference between a low-cost repair bill and costly foundation replacement or concrete foundation repair. While an inspection by a qualified foundation repair expert or foundation contractor is the best way to troubleshoot potential problems, here are some things you can look for on your own. A foundation can settle (move downward) into the soil beneath it. When this occurs, it usually means the home’s structure has become distorted or uneven in some way. The settlement occurs when the soil becomes more compacted. There are many reasons for soil... Continue reading

By Susan Mary Malone So, who do you write for? Yourself? Your readers? A combination? We all talk about this a lot. One side firmly states that you write for yourself. Of course, this has to be true, as you’re the one up in that sequestered place (hopefully clean and well-lit, as Hemingway would suggest), toiling away. If you don’t like your people and story, odds are no one else will either. It’s funny, I see a lot of manuscripts where the villain is all villain, and all the evil gets pinned on his shoulders, which is not only unbelievable... Continue reading

By Nancy Penrose Trees are often an important part of a landscape design. Special, unusual trees used in landscaping are often referred to as ornamental trees.

Many tree varieties are also used in landscaping for shade, trees for privacy and backdrops. Before you purchase a tree, take some time to map out your overall landscape design. This will help you decide what types of trees you need and where you are going... Continue reading

By Shawn Kyles Half of all the homes that became uninhabitable following California’s 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake were the result of soft story failure. Many of the apartment complexes severely damaged during the Northridge earthquake in 1994 were also caused by soft story structural issues. This includes the collapse of the Northridge Meadows apartments, which resulted in the death of 16 residents. In the San Francisco area, it is believed that the next moderate to large earthquake could lead to more than 150,000 soft story collapses. In Los Angeles, experts say a big earthquake could cause the collapse of 1,500... Continue reading

By Susan Mary Malone Don’t you just love a great book as it transports you to a different world. No matter what genre you love best, off on a journey you go. But ever have that feeling (more and more these days!) of either feeling bogged down in a book as if drowning in quicksand, or, the converse, the rat-a-tat-a pace leaves you wishing to catch your breath? And how many of those books have you actually finished? Readers say all the time, “I love X author because he writes page turners.” And that indeed may be so. Or, “I... Continue reading

by Nancy Penrose The ginkgo tree (Ginkgo biloba) is considered a living fossil and possibly the oldest living seed plant. It has remained unchanged for over 250 million years. Initially thought to be extinct, the tree survived in China where it was cultivated by Buddhist monks and spread by seed to Japan and Korea. Engelbert Kaempfer, a German naturalist and physician, brought Gingko seeds to Europe in the early 1700s. It is viewed in the East as a symbol of peace, hope, longevity and resilience. In the category of deciduous conifer trees, the deep-rooted ginkgo can grow over 100 feet... Continue reading

Slab foundations are relatively inexpensive to build and extremely sturdy. They are frequently used in warm climates, especially areas with clay soil. There are many different types of slab foundations. Most are built with footings which are thickened areas of slab located under load bearing walls. A load bearing wall is a wall that holds up the structure. If a wall isn’t load bearing, it is called a curtain wall. Most curtain... Continue reading

By Susan Mary Malone Okay, so in the past, I’ve talked about focusing on the book, honing in on the genre, and now for the third thing to take from Traditional-publishing’s successes: Timing. Here I’m not talking about all the time involved waiting on agents’ and editors’ responses to submissions. Or the time waiting for feedback from a developmental editor and working on editing a novel. But rather, once you’ve signed that contract, the time lag that exists before the book comes out. Which can seem like an eternity. Oh, how writers bemoan the idea of waiting 18 months before...
