Simple things we could all do… By saving energy, you help save the Earth!

earthday-AAMS-2017

You probably know by now why it is so important to preserve it and leave it nice and clean for the future generations.

CONSERVE WATER:

You may not realize that there are plenty regions in this world that suffer from water shortage. Think about that before leaving the water running while you’re washing the dishes for example. Try to fix any water leaks in your house and only wash full loads of laundry. Every little thing helps.

USE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

All the people in the photo above could fit in 2 buses. Imagine how that street would look if there were just two buses on it, one for each side. Plus, imagine how much time would be saved, and how much less pollution would be caused. Use public transport whenever you can, or even better, ride a bike to work every day.

EAT LOCAL FOOD

Find local producers and buy your groceries from them, instead of imported food which may have traveled for thousands of miles to get on your table. You will help saving fuel, reducing pollution and, probably, will boost the local economy and don’t forget to bring your own bags when shopping.

PLANT TREES

#HappySpring #FirstDayofSpring #Spring #SpringTime #rebirth #move #moving #relocation #movers

Today marks the first day of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere.

Equinox-Chart

It is time for rebirth! 

If you’re looking for a way to mark the occasion, here are five weird traditions to give you inspiration:

1. Balance an egg: 

There is an ancient Chinese belief that you can stand an egg on its end on the first day of spring.

The theory goes that, due to the sun’s equidistant position between the poles of the earth at the time of the equinox, special gravitational forces apply.

This is, of course, nonsense. But it does still make for a fun party game – and you can save your eggs to paint on Easter Day.

2. Throw some coloured powder:

Holi is an ancient Hindu festival celebrating the victory of good over evil. It takes place each year around the time of the vernal equinox.

Known as the “festival of colours”, it is celebrated by tossing vibrant coloured powders onto each other and dancing in the streets.

This year, Holi starts on Sunday, March 12, but if you’ve got some leftover powder, why not save it to brighten up your day on the 20th?

3. Wear a shamrock:

The symbolic plant of the equinox in Druidry is the trefoil or shamrock, which is also customarily worn on St. Patrick’s Day.

The three leaves shaped like hearts were associated with the Triple Goddess of Celtic mythology, otherwise known as the “Three Morgans”

The shamrock is thought to be symbolic of the regenerative powers of nature.

4. Plant seeds:

The spring equinox is symbolic of rebirth, renewal, and growth, and in ancient Italy, it was traditional for women to plant seeds in the gardens of Adonis on this day.

The custom persists in Sicily, where women plant seeds of grains – lentils, fennel, lettuce or flowers – in baskets and pots.

When they sprout, the stalks are tied with red ribbons and the flowers are placed on graves on Good Friday, symbolising the triumph of life over death.

5. Visit an ancient monument:

Many of the world’s ancient monuments were built as astrological calendars, to map the movement of the Sun over the course of the year.

The equinox is therefore a great time to visit these monuments, as they are often aligned to make the most of the Sun’s unique position in the sky.

At Stonehenge in Wiltshire, the sun can be seen rising precisely between two stones, while at Chichén Itzá in Mexico, the rising sun transforms one edge of the giant pyramid into a blazing serpent, representing the Mayan god Kukulcan.

Let´s celebrate this day by going out and maybe enjoying some time with our mother Nature, smell some flowers, plant some trees, etc…

Many thought Spring was right around the corner, since the temps were in the 60s last week, but no, mother nature has a surprise in store for many in the East Coast. Stella is approaching fast, and according to many reports, it will be a headache.

Let´s hope that as it has happened in the past, the ¨blizzard¨ is just a few inches of snow.

With that being said, we would like to entice you to maybe consider moving down to Florida. Why not? There is sand, palm trees, the ocean, and guess what?? NO SNOW!

Read this article about how it’s been 40 years since it snowed in South Florida.  We hope that this blog post got your wheels turning, and you start thinking about coming down to the Sunshine State!

#Oscars #lalaland #moonlight #newvideo #movers #moving

Wow, wow, wow….. If you did like many people in the East Coast did. Turn off the TV as soon as you heard La La land won Best Picture.  Well, it turned out that the ¨wrong¨envelope was given, and Moonlight was the ACTUAL winner.

Yup, that actually happened and many missed it, to be fair it was really late!

The Oscars were not watched by many since it seems there was some sort of protest against it, but we are sure many are now regretting not having tuned in for the #envelopegate 

We wanted to take this opportunity to share with you our latest video production and hopefully you’ll enjoyed reading about a few of our customer reviews.
