Colonic Center of America's team of therapists attends to clogged interiors in a comfortable setting with its gentle, FDA-approved cleansing-hydrotherapy treatment. The center uses the LIBBE system, which can be operated privately or with the assistance of a therapist. Sessions take place in private rooms, and clients don appropriate draping to maintain comfort and peace of mind. The filtration system removes all traces of offensive odors, ensuring a sanitary experience. Before treatments, clients are advised to drink plenty of filtered water, eat organic vegetables and fruits, and avoid swallowing marbles. See Colonic Center of America's complete list of pre- and post-session guidelines for additional instructions and information.
For more than 40 years, homeowners have entrusted their yards to the experts at Weed Man. Perhaps it’s because the employees do more than just perform lawn-care services—they cultivate close working relationships with their clients. This means they are available by telephone or smoke signal any time of the day and promptly respond to faxes or emails within 48 hours, and they also explain the technical side of lawn care to their clients. Of course, what keeps customers coming back is the attention the staff members lavish on grass during services, which range from eradicating weeds with EPA-approved products to aerating lawns to ousting destructive insects.
Impact Landscaping's owners, Joe Chiera and Micah Posten, have guided homeowners through the full spectrum of landscaping since 1997. They are members of the Ohio Landscape Association and certified technicians. As experienced and credentialed professionals, they keep lawns and gardens healthy and beautiful through services ranging from lawn maintenance to irrigation-system installation and maintenance—including rotors, popups, and sprayheads. The team’s collective green thumb is matched by its handiness with installing hard surfaces, including brick patios, walkways, retaining walls, and any pro wrestler's skull.
The professional handymen from Donahue Contracting & Landscaping pride themselves as jacks-of-all-trades when it comes to household projects. They move from lawn and garden to hearth and home, keeping exteriors neat and tidy through regular lawn mowing visits and remodeling interiors with equal aplomb.

This spring, locals voted The Hen 'n The Ivy the favorite florist in the Avon Patch annual poll. The family-owned flower and plant shop takes pride in their friendly customer service and fast delivery—they can deliver flowers the same day they're ordered. Inside the aromatic shop, they bundle blooms into seasonal bouquets or themed arrangements for special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries. Flowers and tropical plants can also sprout from decorative pots and dish gardens, making them ideal for long-lasting gifts that say "congrats", "thank you", or "I'm sorry I bought you a head of broccoli last year."
Since 1983, families have spent their holidays around the television, watching A Christmas Story and joining in the triumphs and failures of 9-year-old Ralphie as he struggles to secure a Red Ryder BB gun from Santa's bag. Although the cult-classic film showed Ralphie living in Indiana, the house in which the movie took place rests in Cleveland—and is now a museum. When MSNBC interviewed lifelong fan and A Christmas Story House & Museum owner Brian Jones, they profiled the story of how he found the house on eBay and jumped at the chance to own it. Today, he’s turned it into a year-round place of pilgrimage for fans and the site of an occasionally-held convention for Ralphies.
Jones’s restoration has returned rooms to exactly how they were in the film, letting guests gaze at the tinsel-strewn tree with its star falling off and explore the bathroom where Ralphie’s mouth was washed out with soap—a time-tested method for cavity prevention. Visitors can even attempt to hide like little Randy in the cabinet under the sink. After seeing the backyard that still houses the original shed, where Ralphie defended his family against Black Bart, fans head across the street to the A Christmas Story House & Museum. Here, original props such as the toys from the Higbee’s department-store window, Randy’s snowsuit, and Miss Shields’s classroom chalkboard join other memorabilia and hundreds of behind-the-scenes photos. Before leaving, guests drop into the gift shop to pick up a leg lamp just like the one Ralphie's old man cherished so dearly.
