If a picture’s worth a thousand words, then getting your message across using a delicious, crispy pizza made from a 100-year-old family recipe has to be worth like, what, a million? 
 
When you deck out that bubbling, homemade pie with a special message spelled out in your favorite toppings, then you’ve really done it: You have officially won at communicating.
 
What, you didn’t know that speaking in pizza was even a thing?
 
It’s a thing. A few years back, Mr. G’s owner, Mark Giardina made the claim that all of his guests were invited to build the pizza entrée of their choice.

What not to wear

Why is Mimi standing in her closet every morning confused and befuddled about what to wear? It has occurred to her to seek out professional help, so she contacted personal shopper/wardrobe consultant Cyndi Milluzzi, who recently founded Dress Without Stress, a purely magical service that mixes closet organization with personal shopping.
 
Mimi: Are there wardrobe issues today that women just don’t get right?
Cyndi: I’d say proportion and color. Ladies sometimes get in a rut and keep buying colors that don’t complement them. And proportion and fit are keys to looking your best. Many of my clients have just lost or gained weight and want to buy new clothes that s ...

By Lauren Koketko
 
It’s no secret that cracked and uneven cement can be a hazard, is an eye sore, and weakens the curb appeal of your home. Within the cracks and spaces between concrete slabs, you may notice tiny little weeds beginning to grow. These weeds are unsightly problems for the cement areas around your home. Weeds are most often found growing on driveways, sidewalks, and patios where concrete is no longer level. Weed killers and sprays are only a temporary fix for this pesky problem. 
 
If the concrete around your home or business needs some improvement, consider concrete leveling instead of concrete replacement. Full concrete replacement can be very c ...

For many organizations, fundraising is a large part of staying afloat. Whether it’s for a school club or business venture, planning a fundraiser is time consuming and there is no guarantee you’ll meet your financial goal.
 
It can seem like everyone else has been-there-done-that when it comes to fundraisers. Selling magazines, having bake sales, hosting dinners, and washing cars are commonplace and can be more work than profit. If your organization is looking to stand out from the rest, try a golf outing fundraiser.
 
Deer Pass Golf Course offers a $5,000 fund guarantee when you book a fundraiser. General manager Chad Gibson is fully commi ...
