Can you believe the month of May is here? I know my Dallas Specimen Courier friends have felt this year fly by! May is one of the best months here in North Texas because we aren’t quite into the summer heat, but we’re really enjoying a nice spring warm up. There’s also a ton to look forward to. Memorial Day cookouts are on the menu, kids are gearing up for the last day of school, and summer vacations are getting finalized. Since the month of May is all about fun, in this Dallas Specimen Courier blog we’re going to have a little fun, too. We’re going to explore a bunch of different words that all start with our favorite month “May”. That way if you find yourself in a mean game of Scrabble, or working a tough crossword puzzle, you’ll have a leg up.
This Christmas, my family took a trip to Southern California to visit our extended relatives. As part of our journey to the West Coast, we visited the Aquarium of the Pacific. It was a pretty neat experience, minus the $30 admission ticket and $45 I spent on lunch. One thing that stuck out to me, though, was the exhibit on water conservation. Here in North Texas, home of our Dallas Specimen Courier team, we were hit with pretty strict water conservation efforts. No washing your cars unless your hose had a controlled spout. We can’t have yard fountains unless they run on recycled water. We’re told to water the lawn just once a week. There were even incentives for people to call the police if they notice their neighbors breaking the water conservation rules. Geez, talk about a nosy neighbor. The point is, whether we like it or not, there is a need to reduce the amount of water we use as North Texans, and as Americans. Dallas Specimen Courier has some great ideas to help you conserve water without making it too painful!
If you’re like 45% of Americans, you’ve made some sort of New Years resolution. 40% of those who do make resolutions resolve to exercise more- you might be one of them. Since we’re only a few days into the New Year, you’re probably doing an excellent job of keeping your exercise routine. You’re on track, on target, on fire when it comes to getting your workouts in. Unfortunately, only 8% of those who make a resolution are able to successfully stick with it. But we at Dallas Healthcare Deliveries believe in you, and we’d like to give you some tips on how to keep up with that resolution to exercise so your enthusiasm doesn’t melt away with the winter cold.
