Phone Battery Dying? Blame Facebook’s App

Posted by:

Like most of you I don’t get very far from my cell phone. It keeps me in touch with our customers, my family & my friends. I swear half the time I pick it up it’s dead or dying even though I’m sure I just had it on the charger.

I’m not a big Facebook user but I dabble. I hadn’t considered how much of an impact the app may have on my phone’s battery life – It came installed on ...

Clean drinking water restrictions increasing

Posted by:

How often do you take clean drinking water for granted? It’s no surprise for me to mention Flint, Michigan. Recently, the town has been in the news countless times–lead-poisoned water is no joke.

To me, when I think backflow, I automatically think of “double check” more often than not.
