Did you make a New Year’s resolution to eat healthier? One way to keep this promise up all year long is to start drinking healthy, detoxifying green juices. They will give you much needed nutrients and energy to keep you going all day long.
Top ingredients to include in your recipe:
Dark leafy greens: Spinach or kale
Veggies: Cucumber, celery
Fruits: green apples, avocado
Spice it up with: Lime, ginger
Your first jab at making a green juice might not be perfect, so play with the proportions of the ingredients to make the flavor how you like it. Or, if you don’t want to invest in a juicer, go ahead and grab a freshly made bottle at your local grocery store or coffee shop. Once you find a recipe you like, keep it cold in any of these travel mugs and go about your day feeling refreshed and healthy!
Is handwriting becoming obsolete? These days, everyone spends so much time typing away on their phones, tablets, and computers. Do we even remember how to hold a pen and write a note? Today, on National Handwriting Day, let’s strive a little harder to start writing more personalized notes.

When you think of a logger or forester, what is the first tool that comes to mind? Probably a chainsaw, right? Well the other tool that they use on a daily basis is a diameter tape measure. What exactly do they use this specialized tape measure for?
To wrap about tree branches, logs, and trunks to determine their diameter without cutting them
To help estimate the age of the tree
To determine the value of the tree if it’s being logged
For landscapers, it also helps calculate the amount of fertilizer needed
To be consistent, all loggers measure standing trees with their diameter tape measures at Diameter Breast Height (DBH), which is 4.5’ above ground.
Gas and oilfield workers are the most prominent users of pipe tally books. They need to write in them every time they add another pipe to the drilling rig. These hard working people keep track of pressure readings and inventory in their critical jobs 24 hours a day. How do you choose which tally books you buy for them?
The books should be:
Durable (vinyl is great for this purpose)
Small enough to fit in a pocket
Colorful enough so they won’t get lost in a pile of stuff
The right color to show off your corporate logo on the front vinyl cover
Able to hold a removable water-resistant “stone” paper pad, which is “un-rippable”
Designed with an integral pen loop
When you equip your men with the right products, they can focus on their work.
