At this time of year we have traditionally stopped to reflect on what we are grateful for. 2020 has been a tough one for sure. If we had only known back in February how this year would unfold...would we even have believed it?
The idea for our folding table riser products all started with another company that we owned: a catering business. Most folding tables are designed for banquet height, which is about 29-30” above the ground. It’s usually the perfect height for sitting and eating.
Other benefits of folding tables is that they’re pretty inexpensive and can be repurposed for a variety of uses. As caterers, we often used them for preparing the food. The problem was that the right height for eating is not the right height for standing. Our workers had to crouch down to work, which hurt their backs.
November is National Diabetes Month. Not only do we want to stay well ourselves, but we want our clients to do so also!
You might know there are two kinds of diabetes. Those with Type 1 aren’t able to make any insulin, and it’s thought to be an autoimmune disorder. Also called juvenile diabetes, the symptoms may appear in childhood or later and develop very quickly. Only about 5% of diabetics are Type 1.
Those with Type 2 diabetes create enough insulin but don't process it properly. Type 2 appears over a period of time, and sometimes people who have it aren’t aware of it. Risk factors include excess weight and inactivity, so you can take steps (sometimes literally!) to prevent it.
Why should you honor November 8? Glad you asked! It’s National STEM/STEAM Day for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math education here in the US.
This kind of learning is often very hands-on, so it’s great for those who need to touch and play with everything. They could be great prospects for future STEM/STEAM professionals!
This year we’ll be “falling back” one hour on November 1 as we transition away from Daylight Savings Time. The change in clocks is also a great time to take care of some other chores that occur every six months or so. They can help you and your family stay safe in your home.
As the restrictions due to COVID-19 continue to be set in place, it’s tough for small businesses to turn a profit. Yet there are some ways that business owners can save some money during this time that will help keep everyone going until businesses can reopen fully here in the US.
