ASD WaterWorks specializes in property restoration for residential and commercial clients, whether that means removing stains from carpet or repairing damage from flooding or fires. For carpet cleaning calls, the staff relies on truck-mounted steam-cleaning devices to eradicate dust and allergens. In emergency cases, technicians strive for a response time of less than an hour, a practice that allows them to mitigate potential damage and to throw away their 6-month day planner marked "Future Emergency Appointments."
Though Data Center has been around for nearly a decade, its pristine new location on Telegraph Road feels like it was opened yesterday. Staff members stock shelves with an epic selection of hardware and software for PCs and draw upon 20 years of experience as they stay ahead of every twist, turn, and barrel-tossing ape on the information superhighway. Server parts and accessories fortify desktops and laptops, and the Center's certified techs can purge hard drives of harmful viruses and malware and retrieve lost files from the far reaches of a malfunctioning motherboard or tightfisted HAL 9000. Active Solutions Group, the parent company of Data Center, specializes in IT solutions for businesses, including network cabling, workflow processing, and security.
The experts at Nigosian Rug Company, which opened its doors more than 40 years ago, maintain quality floor décor with skillful repair, cleaning, and appraisal services.

Manu and Ila Patel decided to share their recipes with others inside Krishna Catering & Restaurant. They stuff dosas (thin crepes) with cheese and vegetables and toss onions and jalapeños into uttapam (thick pancake) mix, creating dishes that helped the eatery earn the Best Vegetarian Restaurant award on the 2012 Detroit A List. Ila also blends Indian and Chinese flavors, dousing cheese cubes in Chinese sauce and sprinkling chili and soy sauces over veggies. Manu and Ila also cart their myriad dishes off site, catering weddings and celebrations held after passing court-mandated polygraph tests.
Though dogs tend to lovingly follow their owners' lead, that's not where the name Me & My Shadow came from. The owners had a dog named Shadow, an american eskimo that began suffering from health problems, including blindness, at an early age. When Shadow became too skittish to take walks around the neighborhood, his owners decided to put a pool in the backyard. Shadow was delighted to swim in it, and for years afterward, it seemed he was happiest during the summer swimming season.
This inspired Me & My Shadow, an indoor pool and recreation center where dogs can exercise and learn to socialize throughout the year. By-appointment swimming sessions are kept private to ensure dogs and owners—who can take a dip, too—feel comfortable. Pet parents can also sign their dogs up for training sessions, which are led by Judy Hales, an experienced trainer who takes a gentle, positive approach to instruction, as opposed to just rolling her eyes at dogs that can't complete their given task.
