Lyons Roofing Newsletter  11/2012

Hello Friends,

  

First, our prayers and thoughts go out to our friends and families back east. They have quite a mess to tend to.  It is surreal to see glimpses of the devastation.  It is challenging to sit in our dry and 90 degree October weather and fully comprehend the impact of that storm.  As a New Yorker in my roots- it is unthinkable- I stand with you East Coasters- in spirit anyway. 

  

Wow, can  you believe it is November already. So we are at the gateway to our holiday season.  What do you have planned for the holidays this month?  Are you traveling?  Are you hosting house guests?   What ever your plans, over here at Lyons- we are thankful, not only at Thanksgiving, but everyday.  We are thankful for you, our customers, our employees and our families.  So enjoy the holidays in the way that you love the most.  We will be enjoying it with you.

 

 

    

 

Allow me to recap the results of our commitment to the American Cancer Society's Making Strides foundation.  Our goal:  $2500  Our actual:  $3200.  We ranked 23 of 725 teams.  Way to go Lyons team. 

 

Next up:  Habitat for Humanity.  Each year we pledge to assist at least two Habitat projects with a new roof.  Stay tuned for more information about those projects as they unfold. 

 

   

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

 

Sincerely,

 

Ann Pepper

The First TV Dinner Was Thanksgiving Leftovers

In 1953, someone at Swanson severely overestimated the amount of turkey Americans would consume that Thanksgiving. With 260 tons of frozen birds to get rid of, a company salesman named Gerry Thomas ordered 5,000 aluminum trays, recruited an assembly line of women armed with spatulas and ice-cream scoops and began creating mini-feasts of turkey, corn-bread dressing, peas and sweet potatoes - creating the first-ever TV dinner. Thomas later said he got the idea from neatly packaged airplane food.

 

 

Want to know if a cranberry is ripe?  Bounce It!

That's right, all you need to do is throw it at the ground and measure how high it bounces. As long as it bounces higher than four inches it is ready to be picked. Who knew that is what it takes to make the perfect cranberry sauce for your Thanksgiving.  The cranberry is actually one of only three fruits that are native to North America and it is served at 94% of Thanksgiving dinners. 

 

 

 
November Weather Forecast
 

AccuWeather.com is predicting a fairly dry and pleasant November.  Although temperatures will likely remain unseasonably warm, it will be cooling to pleasant in the next couple of weeks.  Travel weather for the holiday is looking good here in Arizona anyway. 

 

The weather gurus say that this is an El Nino year, that means a wet winter and spring.  Is your roof up to the task? While it is sunny is the best time to have your roof inspected and worked on to get it water tight. We don't need it wet to see where it will likely leak.  Allow us to be a detective and prevent the problem before it becomes a more expensive problem.  Leak detection inspections are always free!  Referrals also pay, $100.
