Live the life…dive into fun You awaken to the sounds of the “wild” parrots in the swaying palm trees. As you step off your porch, you spy the numerous other colorful, tropical birds amid the lush foliage surrounding the gently flowing stream in front of your cottage. Down the path – two quick turns – and you’re passing the lounge chairs and umbrellas around the crystal clear water of the swimming pool. A few more steps and the azure blue water of the Caribbean comes into view directly in front of you. Turn right - and you’re in the spectacular outdoor dining room overlooking the sea, where both old and new friends are waiting with warm greetings and hot coffee. Following a good breakfast and great camaraderie, you leave your table and head down the walkway to the waiting
boat where more friends welcome you aboard. Ten minutes later, you’re underway to enjoy the thrill of “Flying without wings” while you “visit” some of the most fascinating creatures - in the most beautiful scenery - imaginable. You have set-aside your everyday life for a time… You are a SCUBA diver. “This is the lifestyle we live… where we enjoy ‘The Experience of a Lifetime Every Time’” says Jim Barrie, owner of The Scuba Shack in Florence. If you are ready to, as Thoreau said “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams” and “Live the life you have imagined” visit our website at www.TheScubaPlace.com and call 859283-1550 to find out how easy it is and schedule your very own “Try SCUBA Experience.”
Concrete lifting: Attractive alternative to replacement Matracia Contracting Inc. would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the concrete lifting process. Concrete lifting is a process in which a concrete slab is raised back to its original position. It is the economical alternative to tearing out and replacing concrete. Your concrete is lifted by drilling one or more holes into the surface of the concrete slab, and pumping a cementbased material through the holes. This fills any voids and displaces any standing water under the slab which may have occurred by settling or rodents burrowing under it. We continue pumping until enough material is pumped under the slab to raise it back to its original position.
The cement-based material is a sandy loam containing lime and cement. It is non-toxic and environmentally safe. This process works on any concrete slab, sidewalks, porches, garage floors, driveways, house floors, steps, pool decks and more. Their portable pump allows us to go anywhere on your property without damage to your lawn or landscaping. Their trucks stay on the street. There is no mess and no heavy equipment. And most jobs are completed within one day – or less. Give them a call. Their estimator will call you back within 24 hours and set up a time to receive a free estimate.
