Amazing Sculpture of greyhound by Jack Marsden Mayer
Vets aren’t all work and no play. Jody Burchall collects contemporary art and is
always on the lookout for great original art works to add to her collection. About 18 months
ago Jody commissioned a sculpture of her Italian Greyhound Blue from Jack Marsden Mayer an artist who works with driftwood, lives in the Ruapehu area and makes stunning sculptures
of animals. Jack has kindly provided us with this video of the creation of Blue.

It makes perfect sense to want to better your home. Although it can be overwhelming at times, many home improvement projects can be accomplished by the average do-it-yourself homeowner. Whether you want to make home improvements in order to sell your home, or you just want your home to look nicer, the following tips will help you.
It can be very expensive to purchase new furniture. Sometimes you can find great bargains in second-hand stores or yard sales. You can find some great deals among things that someone else didn’t want. Some things require work, but by investing time, they can become an asset.
Think about what you’re going to do before you do it. When you plan things out, you ensure that you stick to a budget and get everything done properly. You will up your cost and time when you change up in the middle of your project. The contractors you hire will be much more satisfied if you have a plan before starting construction and you don’t deviate from that plan.
If you’d like to maintain the appearance of your toilets, put a bit of bleach into the bowl. Bleach has a strong smell, but it is terribly effective at killing germs. If you are really concerned about the smell, try scented bleach.
When you need professional help with a home improvement project, be sure that you and your workers draw up a written contract before any work is done. By having something in writing, you will be protected from extra charges and unfinished work. You’re in a dangerous position if you don’t have a contract.
When you hire a contractor for your project, it’s necessary to keep a file of all your records. Do not rely on the contractor to handle this for you. Keep a folder with all contracts and invoices relevant to the project you are doing. Then you and the contractor can just focus on completing the project.
Home improvement is not about overworking yourself. Applying these tips should help you design a better home for yourself and your family.
