Blogahon Endorses the Dyson!
We've been happily married for over three years. But during those three years something has been missing. It took us a while to put our fingers on exactly what the missing piece has been. We initially thought that we needed a baby to fill the void. Well, babies are nice but we still had this deep void which reared its ugly head ever so often. Then we thought we needed a blog. So we started this blog late last year. At first the blog seemed to fill the hole that we troubling our family but after a few weeks of blogging we realized that we had only made the problem worse.
Finally we figured out what it was...we needed a quality vacuum cleaner!
We've plowed through 3-4 vacuum cleaners since our wedding day. The vacuum saga usually goes something like this: We'll buy a shinny and fancy looking model from Wal-Mart. We'll bring it home and sure enough it seems to work ok for the first 2-3 months...but then, invariably, the vacuum starts to loose suction. The result is that we simply get frustrated with vacuuming and give up. We can't do that anymore because Hattie is crawling around and eating stuff off the floor all day. We've tried every major brand...Dirt Devil, Regina, Eureka, Bissell etc. Each cost $75-$125 and all eventually stopped sucking and started sucking at the same time (if you follow me.)
Daddy did a little research and found a British made vacuum cleaner that makes the bold claim that it "never looses suction" and comes with a 5 year warranty. Not too shabby.
Last night we pulled the trigger and purchased what we hope is the last vacuum cleaner we buy in at least five years. Our first use of our new toy yielded tremendous results. The canister which catches the dirt and fuzz balls was packed full of dust that was just sitting in our carpet.
Of course, time will tell if the Dyson proves to be a worthy investment. For now, however, Dyson gets the Blogahon seal of approval.
Wisdom From the Pope
“The inalienable dignity of every human being and the rights which flow from that dignity - in the first place the right to life and the defense of life - are at the heart of the church's message." Pope John Paul ended his address, saying: "In spite of divisions among Christians, 'all those justified by faith through baptism are incorporated into Christ...brothers and sisters in the Lord.'"
