Let the Light Shine In

.
I can't think of anything more uplifting that bringing nature closer. In these photographs, the different interior designers, architects, and landscape designers build rooms with access to light and nature.

STANDARD COURTESIES

I will attempt to stay as close as I can to the book, but I can see that Peggy Post is a little more liberal than her mother was and I am. By the way, chivalry is not dead.

“After You, Sir” or "After You Mam"

It makes sense that men and women open and hold the door for each other, depending who arrives first. The traditional door-opener will give the woman a choice – “May I get the door for you?” She would reply “Thanks!” or “No Thanks, I’ve got it id she get the door first. Use your judgment, but if I am not in a hurry (real hurry), I let the gentleman open the door.

When you approach the door at the same time a stranger arrives, it’s polite to open and hold the door, especially if they are elderly, someone with a child, or have their arms full. Never let a door slam in someone’s face after you have walked through it, but you are not obligated to hold it once they are there and can hold it open for themselves. These are no- brainers.

Traditionally men entered revolving doors first, but this is one rule that is basically void. The first person to the door enters and pushes the door.

Tomorrow we cover Courtesies In an Elevator.

See you soon,
Teresa

This is the facebook note.

Social Programs Never Go Away!

If you don't become involved in this healthcare situation issue, we are going to be stuck with the bill! Call your Congressmen.
The things that are planted in this bill are horrific. I am for health reform. THIS BILL IS NOT A HEALTH REFORM BILL. I am for insurance and healthcare reform, which means that they need to clean up their acts. This bill is a socialist act!

We need two things:
1. decent insurance packages that allow for preexisting conditions without raping a person financialy. The insurance companies share these expenses already. It would be the same.
2. healthcare has got to be cleaned up! It is a disaster. Bunch of folks offering poor care and charging for things that didn't take place while providing pathetic service.

WE ARE ALREADY PAYING FOR THE UNFORTUNATE THAT CAN'T GET INSURANCE! They are human beings and should be treated as such!

THIS IS NOT A HEALTHCARE REFORM BILL! DO NOT FALL FOR THIS. WE APPEAR TO BE A COUNTRY OF NO BACKBONE WHILE LETTING THESE BLANKS GET ALL OF THIS PUT IN THE BILL!

WE NEED A HEALTHCARE AND INSURANCE REFORM BILL!
