There is nothing like a well-groomed man to make a girl’s heart flutter, or impress a potential boss. Men are often intimidated when they have their legs, face, back or chest waxed, whether it is because of having a “macho” image, or they are worried about the pain. You can see many horror waxing-videos on YouTube, but you need to remember that those people are Not professionals. By going to a professional to get a wax or sugaring, you are in the safe hands of someone with experience. You will save time, energy and emotions. When you do go to a professional, stay relaxed during the procedure. The professional will use the right kind of wax or sugar, and the right thickness for each part of your body.

The parties agreed that the actual fair value of the lands ($1,040,119.81) leased to Wellspring will be a donation by the Town to the Wellspring building campaign.

Your family and loved ones could 'lose' quite a lot if your will is incomplete, poorly drafted or 'out of date'. Not having a will or one that is properly drafted could cost your estate many thousands of dollars in legal bills, bitter family disputes, as well as court-room battles between siblings and/or their spouses!

Communities only get stronger when their leaders do. Additionally, local leadership is stronger, more relevant, and responsive when business, government, and the voluntary sectors work together. ~Brenda Herchmer
