TICKETS GIVEAWAY – Anne Frank’s Step Sister To Speak In Nashville

Anne Frank’s step sister will share her story of triumph, tolerance and peace.

Eva Schloss

Eva Schloss, Anne Frank’s childhood friend and step sister, will share the unimaginable experience of living through the fear and panic which was the Holocaust. This is a special opportunity to hear a first-hand account from someone whose life intersected with one of the most compelling figures in our history.

As time passes, there will be fewer opportunities to hear from actual Holocaust survivors and one day, there won’t be any. Please don’t let the chance to hear Eva’s inspiring message of peace slip by.

For more than 30 years, Eva Schloss has devoted herself to holocaust education and global peace. She has recounted her wartime experiences in more than one thousand speaking engagements and has written 2 books.

She’s also giving an inside look into the life of Anne Frank and her revolutionary diary, showing the real-life people behind the textbook history lessons.

Minimal LED Floor Lamp

Meet the one-of-a-kind SKY LED Floor Lamp from Brightech. I have zero regrets getting this lamp.

Seriously, this is an incredible light. I chose this lamp because it puts out lots of light and has a simple understated style. The design is slim, elegant, and minimalist. The lamp unit is lightweight with a solid base and easy to move. It brightens up the room without it being in “your face”.

The warm white light  has an integrated 30 Watt LED that generates 3,000 lumens. The LEDs last for more than 20 years because they don’t waste energy like fluorescent, compact fluorescent, halogen and incandescent bulbs. You never have to replace a bulb. LED also means the lamp gives out zero heat.

It blazes bright enough to be the only lighting source needed in any room. This light also powers on and off easily featuring a 3 step dimmer to accommodate your mood and lighting needs. It lights up the room with just one tap.

The pivotal head gives you the option to point the light where you need it allowing for more or less light in your desired space.

DIY Garage Floor Painting – 2 Years Later

How did my DIY garage floor painting hold up? Two years ago ( I think it was Labor Day weekend),  I made over my garage. I purged, organized, built storage and painted the floor. So much work, yet so worth it!

So how did the paint hold up? Actually, really great.

I purposely didn’t clean the floor for these photos. As you can see,  it’s been a while.  While I don’t park my car in the garage every day, I do park it inside during extreme hot or frigid temperatures.

I do laundry in my garage and I also store all my lawnmowers. I am impressed with how well the garage floor paint has held up. I don’t see any bubbles and barely any chipping. I just need to give it a good cleaning.

The success of the floor all depends on the prep work done before you paint. It’s tedious work but you want to get it done right.  Is it necessary to paint the garage floor? No, but it looks nicer and makes it easier to clean the floor since the paint seals the floor against stains and moisture.

Would I recommend DIY garage floor painting? Yes. It’s doable and cost is minimal. Besides, fresh paint makes the garage look clean and “not scary”.
