Ottawa’s newest Scrapbooking store, Crop A While, opened in September 2013, after two years of planning and preparation.

Looking to develop your creative side? Crop A While has paper arts classes for beginners to advanced of all ages. The Fultons lead some classes, and Crop A While has a growing roster of new and accomplished instructors from Ottawa’s paper arts and fine arts communities. Each instructor brings unique experience and expertise to techniques and projects.

The store also carries a wide range of tools and supplies for paper arts such as scrapbooking, card making, art journaling and mixed media projects.

 Their location at 2297 St. Joseph Blvd in of Orléans is easily accessed from highway 417 or by public transit. Crop A While is open Tuesdays to Sundays.

Greely Tree Services

GreelyTree1-237x300We prepare our cars for winter….we have a checklist of things around the home that need doing before the snow arrives….what about protecting our property’s trees for the harsh months ahead?

This is the time to prune away dead or damaged branches before the winter frost. This reduces the chances of spring or winter infection of the tree from fungus and bacteria.  Heavy snow can pile up on branches causing them to break and again making the tree susceptible to disease in the spring.  An arborist can determine what type of pruning is necessary to improve the health, appearance, and safety of your trees. But tree trimming and removals can be very dangerous and should be performed by a qualified tree company like Greely Tree Services.

Paul Bradley and his professional team can provide any tree services required including pruning, tree cutting and removal, stump grinding, planting and more.  They also supply and deliver, cut and split firewood which is 100% hardwood.

With more than 18 years experience, Paul’s work is exceptional.  It is customer driven and 100% guaranteed. You won’t pay a cent until the work is completed to both your satisfactions!   From Orleans to Stittsville, let the experts at Greely

Tree Services help prepare your home outdoors for winter.  Call 613-282-3301 or visit www.greelytreeservices.com

Pedal Easy

PedalEasy1_CC_MAY15-150x150(1) Health Matters! … Indisputable!

(2) Exercise Matters! … Fitness and health go hand-in-hand.

(3) Fun Matters! … If exercise isn’t fun, we won’t keep it up.

 

We make exercise pure fun – “exhilaration or your money back”! For three years now, through our Ottawa-Valley company Pedal Easy, we have been changing the lives of our customers, essentially “luring” them into a more active life-style. We have a proven long-term motivator, in fact many have described it as a “life-changer”. Extremely simple in concept, what we have created is the world’s lightest “hybrid” power-assisted bike – a hybrid style bike that can simultaneously boost the user up tough terrain and through tough conditions and be pedaled in a regular capacity, as a bicycle.

Of course it’s not everyone’s panacea, but for those who regard cycling as an activity they enjoy (or who used to, but have given it up due to afflictions or lack of energy), actively using this bike becomes almost irresistible. Having the option of power-assist opens the way to cycling further, more often, and in ways you never considered before; and fitness follows. It allows mismatched riders to ride together, or weaker riders to keep up with a group. It encourages “car-less” commuting and shopping. It’s simultaneously good for you, and good for the environment. And that gives us immense satisfaction.

It’s an experience almost beyond description; like that “bionic” moment in your youth when you first mastered the bicycle. It’s cycling re-born. Try one. We have demo bikes in Ottawa. Call us. For us it is pure fun to introduce people to this bike – because we know there is a very real probability it will enrich their lives, strengthen their bodies, and even extend their lifetimes.

Shoppers Drug Mart Findlay Creek

ShoppersFindlay_SEP15-150x150

With flu season just around the corner, it’s time to think about protecting yourself and your family from this nasty annual virus! Wash your hands often…cover your mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing….don’t touch your face with germ-infected hands and stay home if you feel ill.

The most effective way to protect yourself, however, is by getting the flu shot. It’s free to all Ontario residents with a valid OHIP card over the age of five and is easy to get with a quick stop at Shoppers Drugmart, Findlay Creek!

Flu activity can begin as early as October and run into late May. In most adults, the flu lasts 2-10 days….sometimes longer for the elderly, children and those with chronic illnesses. In some cases it can lead to pneumonia and even death. Ten to 20% of the population will get the flu each year…200,000   people will visit the doctor because of it; there will be 30,000 emergency room visits and 1,000 hospitalizations. Up to 300 people each year will die due to the flu virus.

Don’t be a statistic this year! Why suffer with the aches, chills, fever and other unpleasant symptoms when you can protect yourself and your family. The pharmacists at Shoppers DrugMart, Findlay Creek are trained to make your flu shot quick and painless. No appointment necessary. Starting next month, stop in for your free flu shot.
