The Mechanics Behind Slab Leaks By Juanita Swindell Slab leaks, also known as under-slab leakages, are more common than most people realize.

Considerations in Choosing a Dog By Liudas Justin Choosing a pet is for some a simple thing, while for others a more than a serious endeavor. Usually, the pick of the pet can be based on location, family situation, intent, are there children, or various other factors. Where it gets complicated, or intense, is when one has to take into consideration potential health issues. And one of the more relevant issues is the propensity for hip problems.

Then, a counter-thought came to mind. Biblical stories brim with allegory. After birth, Mary placed Jesus in a manger (a feeding trough for domestic animals). The Son of God sheltered among domestic... Continue reading
