The Joy of Learning Our Country’s Past

For several years now, I have relished the knowledge obtained from viewing shows on the History Channel that focus on political issues that were prominent during the 20th century. Everything from the debate of whether the dollar should be backed by gold or silver, to the theories concerning whether Lee Harvey Oswald operated along in the assisnation of President John F. Kennedy, to the dilemma that this country experience during the Great Depression, and much, much more.

Often, I’ll just come home from work, and after eating dinner, turn on my www.directstartv.com system, and spend a few hours watching shows that cover the above events, learning information that I cherish because it gives me a much better understanding of why this country is where it is. Beyond the subjects mentioned above, the History Channel has had several shows covering U.S. presidential elections. I never knew before how difficult is often is for a presidential candidate to pick a running mate, and how important that decision is. The politics of major urban areas has also been covered in detail, including that of Chicago mayor Richard M. Daley and the strong influence that the mob had in his rise to power and the decisions he made while governing the city.

All in all, watching the History Chanell’s showing on American history has been an educational delight. I look forward to many more.

Upgrading Home Appliances

kitchen appliances

In addition to manufacturing and installing custom stairs of the highest quality on Long Island and the New York Metro area, the team at Island Custom Stairs often works with builders and a variety of contractors while on-site.

Recently, a general contractor mentioned that we should check out the online retailer Become.com as they’re offering significant discounts on home appliances. The relationships we’ve developed over the years allow us to make recommendations to our clients in home improvement areas which are sometimes outside of the realm of custom stair building.

The selection and discounts offered on Freezers is certainly worth taking a look at. The catalog is robust and offers an impressive selection of top home appliance manufacturers. Additionally, our team was impressed with the selection of high-quality kitchen ranges.

At the very least, Become.com is a valuable resource if you’re in the market to build or renovate a residential property.

Our team was excited to see the selection of Napoleon Grills featured on the website. The search for high quality grills is made easy as the product information and specifications are made clear on the sales page. The team at Island Custom Stairs looks forward to sharing more information with respect to our experiences interacting with contractors and design professionals on Long Island.
