P.S. A referral is sending someone you care about to someone you respect. My business continues to thrive and grow due to referrals from clients, friends, associates, and others just like you. Who is the next person you know who would benefit from my services?

Who Was The Last Person You Panned?

In a world packed with emails, instant messages and Facebook status updates, what’s been lost is the art of communicating through handwritten, personal notes. When was the last time you received a personal note from someone acknowledging you? In her book I Love You, Ronnie Nancy Reagan talks about receiving notes from her husband on a regular basis, and the hidden power and magic of a these special communications. A Personal Acknowledgment Note (PAN) is a fantastic way to make a deposit into another person’s emotional bank account. A note that specifically acknowledges a person’s behavior and character only takes a few minutes to draft but creates a lasting impression in the mind and heart of the recipient. The magic in this type of communication comes from being sincere and specific; the more you can address a specific behavior or action, the more powerful your note will be. My personal request to you is that before you retire to bed this evening, find at least one person who you can PAN - and then write that note!

You love your backyard pool and spa. You cannot imagine living in the desert without them. But wait! What are all those chemicals you use to keep them clean and algae-free doing to your body, the environment, your wallet? Plain old salt may be the answer. Saltwater swimming pools and spas have been popular in other parts of the world for a long time and now, because of concern for the environment, they are gaining popularity on our home turf. The many benefits of Saline Purification Systems are quickly making them the water maintenance of choice. Don’t be misled by the term saltwater pool as the water actually contains chlorine, but it is salt-generated rather than man made. By adding a chlorine generator to your pool’s system, the salt added to the water produces the chlorine needed to keep your water clean reducing the need to continually add chlorine and other chemicals. There is minimal cost and some maintenance savings but most people convert to saltwater because it is healthier and more comfortable for swimming. Saltwater pools provide relief from post-swimming red eyes and itchy skin irritated by exposure to too much chlorine, not to mention that awful chlorine smell. THE UPSIDE OF SALTWATER POOLS AND SPAS Good for You and the Planet • Eco-friendly and less harmful to environment • Less harsh and irritating on skin, eyes and hair than chlorine • Easier on breathing for asthma and allergy sufferers • Natural therapeutic effects • Clear and odor-free swimming • Natural algae-reducing effect • No storage or handling of toxic chemicals Less Work – More Play • Salt levels - top off salt levels when water floods/splashes out of pool - salt levels remain even when water evaporates • Saline Systems monitor themselves with warning light if change needed • The system converts salt into chlorine within the water as needed More $$$ for You • Smaller maintenance costs – salt is cheaper than chlorine • After initial start-up salt, only top-off salt needed periodically • Lower electricity costs – filtration system doesn’t have to be run constantly, only once or twice a day for short periods of time depending on pool size • With proper care of pool, converting to a Saline System should pay for itself in about two years • Swimwear lasts longer THE DOWNSIDE OF SALTWATER POOLS AND SPAS • Arizona’s extreme sun and heat burns off chlorine gas produced by salt requiring some addition of man-made chlorine • Cells of Saline Systems need to be replaced regularly due to major calcium build-up in our climate • Professional attention still necessary - if too salty, water can be corrosive to pool - if salt-produced chlorine gets too low, algae and bacteria builds up requiring commercial products If you’re going green and want to go the saltwater route, plan on spending between $1,000 and $2,500 for a decent generator. You’ll need about six 45-lb bags of salt to start and then a bag once in a while for maintenance ($10 - $15 a bag). If you are very handy you can even do it yourself. For only a couple of hundred you can pour yourself a cold one and let a professional do it!

Your Home

There is something for everyone in the sun-drenched Grand Canyon State. If summertime fun conjures up thoughts of unparalleled outdoor adventure, breathtaking scenery, cultural offerings, indulgent spas and resorts, world-class golf courses and water sports of all kinds, then travelling within our own state of Arizona is sure to lift your spirits and soothe your soul.

A MIND-BOGGLING FORCE OF NATURE

You’ll need more than a couple of days to travel the entire 277-mile breathtaking GRAND CANYON. From spectacular hikes to heartpounding whitewater trips, you’ll discover some of the planet’s most amazing natural landscapes. For those of us who packed away our sleeping bags, make a reservation at historic El Tovar or one of the many other canyon lodges. Visit www.thecanyon.com for resources. Reach utopia in the remote western end of the Grand Canyon where crystalline water streams through lush greenery – HAVASUPAI FALLS. Each of the three main falls: Havasu Falls, Mooney Falls and Navajo Falls are worth the hike or helicopter fee. Visit the home of the Havasupai tribe, the Village of Supai, along Havasu Creek and swim beneath the falls. Be prepared to hoof it or mule it out of there.

If you stop in FLAGSTAFF, it’s worth your while to tour the Lowell Observatory. This historic landmark is one of the oldest research institutions in the country. Many don’t know that the planet Pluto was discovered in 1930 right there and that the “PL” in Pluto is to honor Percival Lowell. Private stargazing workshops are available if you book well in advance. Check out www.lowell.edu.

A BOATER’S PARADISE

America’s second largest man-made lake boasts a shoreline longer than the entire west coast of the US. Beautiful LAKE POWELL is part of the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area covering hundreds of miles in Arizona and Utah. Lake Powell’s 96 major canyons, four marinas, water sports, hiking and mountain biking make for plenty of summer memories. Boating is, without question, first choice on the menu. Start with an appetizer and rent a kayak for the day. Go to the main course with a fast powerboat. Splurge on dessert and enjoy the ultimate water view from a luxury houseboat that sleeps anywhere from six to twelve. Go to www.lakepowell.com.

RED ROCK COUNTRY

Seek energy and rejuvenation in less than a two-hour drive from Phoenix in SEDONA. Many claim to experience heightened spiritual and metaphysical energies in the vortexes of this must-see spot at the end of Oak Creek Canyon. Dramatic geology, Native American history and majestic biking and hiking trails are only to be followed by great restaurants and resorts. Don’t miss the shopping at Tlaquepaque or the unbelievable view from the Chapel of the Holy Cross. If you can wait until fall, take in the September Jazz on the Rocks festival. For more information, visit www.sedonachamber.com.

PARK YOURSELF DOWN SOUTH

A 91,000-acre preserve dedicated to the giant saguaro cactus (its

blossoms are the state flower of Arizona) is a state treasure. Saguaro National Park in TUCSON is a cactus-friendly environment benefiting from two rainy seasons; thus, one of the lushest deserts in the world. While in Tucson, glean some culture at DeGrazia’s Gallery, education at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and history at the Old Tucson Studios. Browse www.visittucson.org for even more. Take a side trip back in time and stop at the OK Corral in Tombstone, Arizona. Enjoy the legends of the Old West and watch out for gunfights! On the opposite end of the tourist spectrum, venture into the copper mines of Bisbee, Arizona. See www.cityoftombstone.com or www.bisbeearizona.com for activities.
