We Were Concerned About Radon

We employed the services of a hvac company in NYC after reading about the latest radon scare. Remember radon? It’s a substance that can build up in basements of homes and it’s a killer. If it gets bad enough you can die outright I believe, but what usually happens is that you are exposed to the substance over a period of time and it causes lung cancer. We saw some stories in the paper about some very unfortunate people who were exposed to this gas and at least two of them died from Stage four lung cancer. They didn’t catch it fast enough.

Seeing as how we live in a much older home than normal, my wife and I were both very concerned that we could have this problem. I have my office in the basement and spend a lot of time down there, and our kids also have a play area in the basement where they spend a lot of time messing around. The thought of any of us getting cancer because of a gas you can’t see or taste has all of us pretty scared. I could buy a detector at the store, but I didn’t trust them to do the job.

That’s why I found a company online who works with air quality issues. They came out and listened to our concerns and agreed that radon has been a problem in the area. They brought out some finely tuned detectors and installed them around the basement. The calibration on these devices is pre-set and tested by the company so that we know they work well. I’m not sure what I am supposed to do if one of them ever goes off, but the peace of mind they bring is definitely worth the cost of having them installed in the house.

Purchasing Boots to Go Horse Riding

When my friend took me horse riding for the first time, I fell in love with it. I had never been on a horse before, or even near one for that matter. There was just something so peaceful about sitting that high and going for a long ride, especially with a horse as gentle as the one I learned on. I knew that I wanted to go again and again, and I ended up buying my own horse about a year later. When I bought him, I knew that I was going to need horse riding boots too because I planned on taking him out for long rides as often as possible.

I had purchased a horse rug from a website that my friend had recommended to me, and that is the same site where I saw all the different riding boots for sale. I knew that I wanted a pair, and I just had to figure out which ones were best for me. Looking at all of them was certainly fun though, as well as the other clothing and accessories that are synonymous with horse riders. I thought it would be easy to pick out the boots, but it took me a good long time because I had to look at every detail of each one.

I knew though when I chose the Caldene Ashford Long Boots that I was getting the pair that would be the best. I really like them because they are nice and tall, and they are so sleek looking. They are made from leather, and they have an elastic panel that makes it the perfect fit no matter who is wearing them. The heel is very low too, which is a must when horse riding because it does involve some walking as well. I am just glad that I am able to go riding on my horse as often as I do now.
