Beef Update :)

Hello everyone,

I have talked with Ryan recently and he stated that he was going to be here next week...he can fill the order then, but I didn't think we could be ready for payment and submission so soon. I hope you don't mind, but I have it set for approx. Aug.12th (he stated 2nd week of Aug.)...but if the majority would rather for next week July 8th....I'm game :) I would need payment by the 6th so that we can get it in time...
my address is:
7150 Mineral Park Ave
Las Vegas, NV 89179

*credit cards, Im willing to take them, but it would be charged under my family business & it also takes a percentage we would have to cover...nothing much, $5 would be suffice for sure!

Email me quick if we are shooting for the 8th!!!
Thanks, tirrsa

Gayle's Azure Update

The June Azure Truck delivery is coming soon. Though Thursday (June 17th) is the absolute deadline, it's always good to get it in a few days early. Last month the website was down on the morning of the deadline. The truck should come Monday night (June 21st) or Tuesday morning/mid-day (June 22nd). We never know exactly. We have a good guess by Monday morning. If you need the number for a new drop, please contact us soon, so that we can direct your email to the right person and they can contact you.

Cleaning tricks to make appliances last

Some great tips!

As it turns out, the secret to keeping appliances running smoothly is cleanliness—or at least that’s what Kirby Mills, owner of At Your Service Appliance Repair in Kansas City, Missouri, tells The New York Times, having seen hundreds of appliances malfunction due to “goo, dust, and gunk” every year. I learned this the hard way a couple months ago when my dishwasher stopped working, only to discover later (following a very expensive visit from a repairman) that the problem was simply a filter that needed to be rinsed. It really doesn’t take much time or effort to clean appliances, and doing so can extend their lifespan by years. Here’s a re-cap of how to best go about this:

Dishwasher: Take out the racks. Check the corners and the rubber lining around the door for cracks and food residue. Clean out both with a sponge and plastic-bristled brush (don’t use metal as it can damage the machine). Consult the owner’s manual and remove the spray arms and wash them with soap and water. If you’ve got a filter basket at the base of your dishwasher, carefully remove the filter itself and give it a rinse as well. Slide your hand in the filter hole and check for debris. Put the pieces back together and run the machine empty with a bit of detergent.

Refrigerator: The coils underneath the machine tend to get clogged with dust, which can make it hard for the compressor fan to circulate fresh air. To make sure they’re all clear, unplug the machine, get down on the floor, and pull out the vent plate that covers the coils. Then use a vacuum hose to clean the coils. It’s also good to wipe down the door gasket as with a warm damp cloth to make sure there’s no sticky build-up there, which can cause the gasket to tear (and inhibit your fridge’s ability to refrigerate).

Air conditioner: Similar to refrigerators, air conditioner coils need to be cleaned every once in a while—now, a.ka. the beginning of the season, is a particularly good time to do this. Remove the filter cover and run a vacuum brush over the coils. While you’re at it, pull out the filter and clean or replace it, depending on what kind of model you have.

Vacuum: This is one of the most oft-neglected household gadgets. Filters and bags need to be swapped out at least annually. If you have a bagless model, wipe out the canister with a sponge. Test it’s suction power: try to vacuum up a bit of sand, and see if your vac sucks up the majority of it (if so, it’s in good shape—if not, take it to a local repair shop to see if it’s just a question of changing out a part. If you’ve got motor issues, it’s probably more cost effective to buy a new vacuum).

Ceiling fan: If you notice the blades on yours are wobbling, you’re in for trouble—this wears out the motor a lot faster. Dust off the tops of the blades and tighten the screws to make sure everything is locked into place.

Stove and oven: Gas stoves in particular need to be kept clean to ensure burners and igniters will keep on for years. A warm cloth and a bit of dish soap is all you need to get them spic and span. Mr. Fleshman from Fleshman Appliance Repair tells The New York Times that the self-cleaning feature should be avoided, since the super-high-temperature can be hard on your oven’s wiring and electrical components. Instead, after you’ve used your oven, wait until it’s cool enough to touch but still warm, and wipe it down with a moist cloth. Fleshman also says not to worry about stains, “always tell my customers, if people are looking in your oven and complaining about it being dirty, you shouldn’t have those people in your home.”

Update on Frontier

The order for Frontier will not be placed until Thursday at the earliest because I had to setup my own account with Frontier. They have a 2 step approval process that takes a full day each to complete. Sorry for the delay. I didn't know all this ahead of time. Please keep an eye on your email starting tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon in case there is a change to your order. I will post when order is complete and the spreadsheet totals are updated.
