Blessed2Help offers assistance for just about all the dirty jobs homeowners often don’t have the time or energy to perform. Customers can keep their hands clean, letting technicians mop and scrub hardwood floors, lay down new sod, or organize a crowded closet. Technicians can also perform seasonal services, such as setting up holiday lights in time for Christmas and installing peepholes so you can pretend to be sick when the tax man visits in April.
Dry Clean Super Center’s experts are as conscientious as they are timely. Technicians clean, starch, and press clothing at six different locations, customizing services to suit special requests, and offer same-day turnaround for dry-cleaned items brought in before 9 a.m. Beyond offering basic cleaning of delicate clothing items, comforters, curtains, and leather, on-staff tailors can also perform basic alterations, taking in too-big suits or stretching leg warmers into sweaters for pet snakes.
The insured technicians at Goodfellas Carpet Cleaning keep walking surfaces spick and span with eco-friendly treatments for carpets, rugs, and wood floors. The outfit’s namesake service, carpet cleaning, cleanses shag with an odorless, soap-less cleaning agent that causes no harm to the environment or the children, pets, and sentient golf balls traversing the carpet every day. The controlled-moisture process uses just 3–4 gallons of water to clean an average home, minimizing drying time and ecological impact. Elsewhere in the house, dirt and odors tremble at the advancing cleaners armed with tools to deftly scour wood floors, chase spots off of upholstery, and hold down magic carpets long enough to give them baths.
With 30 years of music-arrangement experience, Kevin Bigham expertly guides fingertips across piano keys during lessons held in studio, at students' homes, and even online via Skype video chat.

When he's not sharing skills with pupils, Bigham can often be found adding live soundtracks to weddings and events. He also blends his twin passions of music and spirituality by playing piano during faith-based events.
Though she’s clad in her finest tiara and dress, the princess does not, in all the excitement, notice that there is icing on her nose. However, this potential party faux-pas goes unnoticed by her fellow princesses, as they’re all occupied with contributing to the symphony of giggles and jubilant chatter reverberating off the tea room’s pale pink walls. Despite their attire, this royal crew is not based in a fairy tale but rather partaking in one of Chelsea's Tea Room & Boutique’s glamorous princess dress-up parties. Dedicated to fostering magical moments such as these, the tearoom’s staffers help youngsters let their imaginations run wild via well-planned parties and events.
Amid the elegant tearoom, staffers gild the faces of partygoers in makeup and festoon their nails in fairy dust before unleashing them upon the wardrobe of dress-up clothes. Wee guests hop into the finery of their choice, solidifying their official princess status during a regal strut across the stage and down the runway. Newly minted sovereigns then sip giggle tea and snack on treats such as scones, teapot cookies, and chocolate truffles. Trained in the art of make-believe, staffers remain on hand throughout parties to entertain crowds with riveting stories and etiquette sessions that teach skills, such as table manners and the importance of saying "please" and "thank you."
Along with glitzy parties, Chelsea's Tea Room & Boutique also hosts Princess Summer Glamour Camps designed to promote values such as self-respect, spoken and written communication skills, and confidence among its campers. Its shelves brimming with vibrant decor and sparkly togs, the on-site boutique enables guests to stock up on all things girly during pre- or post-party shopping sessions.
In 1976, educator, musician, and kinesiologist Robin Wes longed for a children's gym that prioritized personal growth over competition. Unveiled at a time when physical-education classes pushed students to focus almost exclusively on winning, Robin's program was swiftly adopted and is now used in more than 300 Little Gyms worldwide. Robin still pens original music to accompany lessons, which engage whippersnappers aged 4 months to 12 years with gymnastics, dance, karate, and parent and child activities.
Each of The Little Gym's classes introduces simple movements that sharpen motor skills and set brains whirring, allowing kids to progress at their own pace until they can finally build a computer out of macaroni and glitter. Staff members strive to build a base for lifelong social skills and self-assurance with each exercise, including activities rooted purely in fun, such as summer camps or birthday parties, which helped The Little Gym to earn title of #1 Birthday Chain in Parents Magazine.
Pump It Up knows it's all fun and games until somebody gets hurt, so they skip the last part. Each piece of the indoor inflatable playground is held to the wall by a complex series of anchors installed according to strict safety standards. The staffers' watchful eyes take care of the rest. Sock-clad striplings are then free to safely launch themselves into the air with a plethora of kid-friendly bounce pads. Adult counterparts can leap alongside their offspring through gargantuan bounce houses, skip down air-filled slides, or slither like snakes covered in bacon grease through an inflated obstacle course. Occasionally, the lights get switched off, and the roomful of players navigate the air-cushioned obstaclescape with glow sticks and bracelets.
The colorful venue also hosts custom birthday parties and private team parties, each themed to please the partygoers in question. These soirees immerse children in a schedule of interactive activities befitting a pirate or a superhero that melt off youthful energy faster than ice cubes tossed into a running DVD player. At the climax, the birthday boy or girl gets to blow out the candles on their cake while seated on a blow-up throne.
