When it was founded in 1987, Frame Central was a social hub for artists, and was even curiously named for facial hair. However, Beard Outlet has since morphed into a seven-location franchise, dedicated to simplifying the framing process. The shops’ onsite stock of matboard, frame moulding, and other key supplies ensures speedy DIY framing projects—which visitors can complete in an hour—and single-day professional framing. An array of pre-framed mirrors and artwork allows shoppers to enhance their blank walls without taping a napping friend to them. Shoppers can also stock up on framing supplies such as case glass and hanging hardware.
Since equipping the world with its first wood-slat recliner in 1928, La-Z-Boy has branded itself as a well-known producer of high-quality furniture, including their signature recliner, loveseats, ottomans, upholstered sofas, accent tables, and much more. The Urbana oval end table ($249 and up) is genetically engineered to keep junk mail off the ground and blocks the couch's attempts to stretch out into the hall. A host of recliners, sofas, sectionals, the demi stationary chair and sleepers are also waiting to invade homes with their tasteful presence.
The woodland aviaries at Cascades Raptor Center provide a safe space for more than 60 resident raptors representing 30 native species including owls, hawks, falcons, bald and golden eagles, and vultures. Meet the intense gaze of these airborne hunters as you stroll through majestic aviary trails. Members can keep up with their favorite fowls with unlimited admission for an entire year. Proceeds benefit the center's on-site wildlife hospital for birds of prey, which has treated more than 2,500 birds suffering from broken wings or existential ennui. Expand your winged knowledge at informative handler talks in which feathered friends are allowed to preen for paparazzi and field questions from their perch on the handler’s glove. Avid avian watchers can explore the Cascades Raptor Center grounds Tuesday to Sunday and catch handler talks on weekends at 1 p.m.
Associated Heating and Air Conditioning's professionals refurbish heating and cooling systems, employing specialized training during appointments scheduled 24 hours a day. Specialists commence forced-air maintenance with inspection of oil, motors, and electrical components, before changing air filters or wicking them clean. Depending on whether the home in treatment is kept warm via electric furnace, gas furnace, or a burning stack of old VHS tapes, technicians cycle and change out the system's specialized heating implements. After measuring temperature differences between air supply and return and recalibrating all safety, pump, and thermostat controls, staff vacuums furnaces and purges debris from unit interiors. To protect against passing cumulus clouds shaped like raindrops, technicians also wash and wax outdoor units. Associated Heating's duct irrigators review the limitations of all equipment involved prior to service and guarantee complimentary re-working if customers are not fully satisfied for up to one year following installation.
