Our recent Veterans Day celebrated all of our Armed Forces members efforts in protecting our countries’ freedom.
We honored our Veterans with parades and ceremonies this week, thanking them for their service and their places of honor in our lives. We have memorials throughout the country to celebrate these brave men and women who fought for us and thousands who paid the ultimate sacrifice. I’m humbled by the many efforts people are taking to facilitate travel for many still surviving World War II Veterans to see the WWII Memorial in Washington DC. My late Father was given a special trip by relatives to see that memorial and was thrilled to visit it while he was alive.
Parades and functions happened over this past weekend celebrating this wonderful day of recognition. Seeing the proud veterans is always a poignant sight. We are grateful for their efforts, service and never forget to honor them. Weekly, in Colorado Springs, we have reminders of our freedoms when our military forces return home after deployments overseas; children are reunited with their parents, men may see their newborn babies for the first time. We have our precious freedom protected by these brave soldiers, and need to remember that as we go through our days.
Being grateful for our freedoms is very important to the American Dream. We have wonderful opportunities here in the US and are able to have very nice homes to enjoy. This time of year, with holidays coming quickly, we are preparing for parties, celebrations and times with friends and family.
An important preparation is cleaning, dusting and removing bugs and debris from our window shadings. Many readers use our CamilyWand Sticky Bug Removal Tool™ for removing debris and bugs from their blinds and shadings, such as Silhouettes® and similar shadings manufactured by Hunter Douglas and other companies. Other brands of products where our CamilyWand™ works beautifully are Nantuckets™, Pirouettes®, Luminettes®, Vignettes®, Soleras™, Illusions, and Shangri-Las. They are made by various companies such as Smith+Noble, Allen+Roth, and Comfortex.
Keeping your shadings free of bugs and debris is very important. A serious concern is damage that can occur when the bugs and debris are left in the openings and between the fabrics when your shading rolls up and down. They become squished and may leave permanent spots behind on the shade fabric. The benefits of these shadings outweigh this issue. You have filtered views of your landscapes, outdoors and changing seasons, while having very good insulation and privacy at the same time. Energy savings at your windows with these benefits are very important for our environment.
As you enjoy your holiday season, keep our CamilyWand™ handy to grab the debris in your shadings, and remove unsightly webs from inaccessible places like light fixtures, chandeliers, fans, fabric window treatments, behind furniture and appliances, and many other creative things you can imagine.
We here at CamilyWand™ wish you happy and safe upcoming holiday times as you’ve prepared for great gatherings with family and friends.
