For Your Windows

WINDOW TO WHATCHAMACALLIT

Okay, you were probably born in some decade last century. Maybe the 60’s or the 40’s or something like that. Please tell me, when my four younger grandchildren, all born between 2003 and 2008, are older how will they refer to the decade they were born in?  Having done a bit of research, I find that I am not the only person asking this question. Over the past 10 years there has been no consistent agreement on this.

Here are some of the choices.

1) The 2000’s

2) The aughties

3) The aught naughts

4) The naughties

5) The oh oh’s

6) The ohsies

7) The twenty hundreds

And now we are in the in-betweens maybe? Or is it the “tens”?

You would think that because this problem existed at the turn of the last  two centuries, someone would have found a solution. I think we need to come to an agreement on this  so we can hand it down to our future generations. 

I started For Your Windows in 2010. What is your suggestion on how I can refer to that later?

WINDOWS WITHSTAND WHATEVER WEATHER

Whether the weather be fine,

Or whether the weather be not,

Whether the weather be cold,

Or whether the weather be hot,

We’ll weather the weather,

Whatever the weather,

Whether we like it or not.

I have been rolling up my sleeves lately and working to help schedule work for my favorite window cleaning company here in Albuquerque, My Window Man. It might have just a little to do with the company being owned by family. To get the year started out with a boost we are offering a discount to repeat customers. The weather has been incredible, up until today’s windy presence.  We have had cool, but sunny New Mexico skies – perfect for window cleaning.

That condition does not stop customers from questioning the weather. I get amused when I look at their past notes from May or August and it says, “Call me when it is not so windy” or “I will call you when it is not so hot.” I am pleasant with them of course, but weather is weather whenever.

If you windows are dirty, don’t hesitate to hire a professional to clean them in the winter. Cool crisp winter days look better with clean windows.

And, it is always a good time to check out cheap  discounted window covering at For Your Windows.

ANYONE IN DIXVILLE NOTCH NEED WINDOW COVERINGS?

At the risk of leaning to politics, which I am not doing on this blog, I want to mention Dixville Notch. If you do not know what or where that is, don’t feel bad. I am probably older than most of you, and I was not familiar with it either.

Each election year, New Hampshire is the first to hold a primary. Dixville Notch actually opens their polls at midnight and closes them a few minutes later after their small population has cast their votes.

Last night they had nine voters, which was a bit lower than normal. This event has been going on since 1960. The interesting thing about it, is that since 1968, whoever got the most votes for the Republican nomination has won it again for the general election.  Last night there was a tie. Wonder what that will bring.

I find this intriguing. Maybe it is all just coincidental, but small happenings can sometimes manifest much bigger phenomena. Never underestimate the power of a tiny idea.

I bet Dixville Notch is lacking a brick and mortar location that sells window coverings. Guess what! For Your Windows offers what you need at its online store, and it ships nationwide.
