They want their children to exceed them, to be even more successful than they were. Landscaping Services hot sun to cut grass, trim hedges and plant becomes less true as guys get older.

A set of golf clubs If your father considers a round of golf as the closest thing he’s found to heaven on earth, then enhancing his equipment to improve his game is an obvious Father’s Day gift idea. Wow him with a new set of irons and he’ll think of you every time he hits a great shot. Fishing gear about a rod, a reel and some line. Once he opens a new rod and reel or even of this age-old pastime expand to include his new toys. Alcohol Sometimes nothing can take the edge off of a day of stress and work like a nice stiff drink.

A young couple, Nick and Colby, have all the expectations that most of us dream of about our child to be. But what they have achieved through their coupling is so shockingly far from their expectations that it is hard to believe. Coming to terms with that reality takes them on a life altering and often humors journey of self-discovery and acceptance. Two-time Emmy Award winner, Rachel Axler, forces her characters and us, to come face to face with our fears, our shortcomings and ourselves in this poignant dark comedy about parenthood. 2012 New AmericAN VoiceS PlAy reADiNG SerieS The other offering of Landing Theatre Company this season is a collaborative project with Mildred’s Umbrella Theater Company and Wordsmyth Theater Company on a new play development series called The New American Voices Play Reading Series featuring four nights of new plays.

“I’m In PAIN” Can Chiropractic Help ME ? We are often asked, “What’s the best way of finding out whether or not a doctor of chiropractic can help my problem?” We believe the answer can be found in a complete chiropractic consultation and examination, including x-rays. And to help find out for sure, we will do a complete consultation and examination, including x-rays, if necessary, (procedures that normally cost $187.00 or more) for $25.00. We will make this special program available through June. The only exception to the offer involves personal injury cases (workers’ compensation and auto accidents) in which there is no charge directly to the patient.
