With spring spreading like a bag of spilled gravy, now is the ideal time to throw open the windows and get home-care projects underway. Pick up a Steel Grip six-piece screwdriver set ($8.49), a VPT rip hammer ($6.29), and a whole bunch of screws, anchors, and bolts (prices vary), and you'll be ready to finally mount every buffalo nickel and steel penny in your coin collection. Illuminate the newfound décor with a 12-pack of Ace light bulbs ($21.48), the better to see by as you make use of a Purdy Chinex Slide paint brush ($14.99–$19.99). If you need to match paint to a favorite coverlet or choose a hue that complements a pleather recliner, each store offers a paint-matching service free of charge, or you can get keys made for your home or your car thanks to their automotive chip key cutting service.
From making repairs without the need for new parts whenever possible to offering 24/7 customer service, the staff at KS Services always puts the client first.

The meticulous lawn techs at JTL Lawncare introduce their powerful mowers to overgrown grass blades every 7–10 days to help customers spend less time with their lawns and more time with their families. When they aren't leveling verdant surfaces, the crew trims hedges, removes clippings, extracts weeds, purges gutters, and pressure washes driveways for an additional fee. They ask that clients clear their lawns of all toys, garden hoses, dogs, and outdated moats before each appointment.:m]]
At GOGA Studios, 10-minute sessions on whole-body-vibration GOGA platforms pair with infrared saunas, himalayan salt lamps, and ionized water to detoxify and rejuvenate bodies. Each experience at GOGA centers on the FDA-recognized vibrating platforms, which oscillate and simulate a walking motion. This causes muscles to contract up to 30 times per second for a multitude of benefits, such as weight loss, toned muscles, decreased stress, and an improved shimmy. Sessions in the infrared sauna further aid weight loss by stimulating the body’s metabolism with warm, soothing infrared light.
The first Golden Rule Bar-B-Q and Grill—a roadside joint frequented by locals and travelers alike—served its first heaping plate of lovingly smoked barbecue in 1891. The restaurant has since adapted with the times, acquiring a car-repair garage, neon signs, and a hovercar dock, in addition to nearly a dozen saucy outposts across the state. Now the various locations serve slow-cooked, hickory-smoked meats served with a variety of secret-recipe sauces and sides such as collards or mac 'n' cheese. Guests can also forgo the sauce and order surf 'n' turf dishes such as a hand-cut charbroiled steak or a creole grilled fresh catfish fillet.
Professional shutterbug Darlene Grasham seeks honest, candid shots that capture cherished moments of seniors, couples, and families. During shoots inside the studio or great outdoors, professional lenses look for both posed and photojournalistic shots. Children can frolic through verdant fields brimming with natural light, or business executives can flash their pearly credentials before a neutral studio backdrop. Shots aim for natural scenes, avoiding the staged, stiff portrait poses commonly pasted on action figures of politicians. Following the shoot, Darlene uploads proofs to a private online viewing gallery, where subjects can choose their favorite pose to wring through a digital editing tool. Retouched prints then glide onto a shiny CD or traditional print.
With more than 370 locations and 300,000 patients, HealthSource Chiropractic and Progressive Rehab brings well-trained doctors and, thus, pain relief to all corners of the continental United States. Each office’s staff provides treatments designed to quell lower-back and leg pain, vertigo, scoliosis, migraines, and carpal tunnel. Rather than rely on what they call passive chiropractic care—roller tables, heat packs, ice packs—the staffers at HealthSource mostly prescribe an active care plan to patients. This means they will perform rehabilitation routines alongside chiropractic adjustments to soothe muscle spasms, increase flexibility, and straighten posture so much that local schoolmarms begin suffering from midlife crises en masse.
