A Big Anniversary for PoemsToGo

Providence, Rhode Island (PRWEB) August 07, 2014

PoemsToGo, the world leader in writing original poems, speeches, and toasts (all of them based on input received from each customer), announced a significant milestone on August 3: They wrote their 500th anniversary poem.

PoemsToGo (PTG) was established in 2001 by Amy Miller, the company’s president. “We serve all kinds of customers worldwide,” Miller said, “and for every kind of occasion,” she added. That includes retirements, birthdays, weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, graduations, condolences, friendship and much more.

It’s fitting that the 500th anniversary poem was written for an Australian couple who were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. Fitting because PoemsToGo is indeed a worldwide service, providing creative, heartwarming, funny, and utterly unforgettable verse or prose for customers in over 38 nations across the globe.

It’s fitting in another way, too. As Miller points out, “our very first order ever was a 50th anniversary poem — for a couple in Miami.”

Wedding anniversary poems for parents and 50th anniversary poems for grandparents are perennially popular items at PTG. Of course, they’re not just in business to write up golden anniversaries. “We do a lot of 1st year anniversary poems,” too, said Miller. “We’ve done just about every anniversary for our customers,” she said, including a 75th wedding anniversary verse commissioned by the loving couple’s great grandchildren!

No matter what kind of poem, speech or toast PoemsToGo customers order (including “special orders” which PTG is happy to entertain upon request), Miller guarantees everyone surprisingly affordable prices, an easy ordering process, quick, responsive service, and a truly unforgettable end result.

“We aim to please in every way,” says Miller, acknowledging that “our 500th wedding anniversary poem is a real accomplishment.” But the company, she says, is only just beginning to fulfill a promise to serve people across the globe. “We’re planning on doing a lot more Mum and Dad anniversary poems, as well as ones for grandma and grandpa, your favorite friends, your kids or anybody,” she added. “It’s my goal,” said Miller, “to be writing our 1000th wedding anniversary verses – and work anniversary messages – in the next couple of years.”

Hands On HealthCare Massage Therapy and Wellness Day Spa of Long Island Expands Their Corporate Wellness Chair Massage and Mobile Spa Services

Commack, New York (PRWEB) November 27, 2012

The expansion of Corporate Massage Services at Hands On Mobile Spa has been prompted by Super Storm Sandy. The extreme weather has led to extreme stress and an extreme amount of aches and pains. Companies such as National Grid, an international electricity and gas company, have been calling Hands On Mobile Spa to help their employees get through the huge amount of hours and stress that they have been working under. In order to accommodate the increase in business, Hands On has added additional staff, services and information on their services. The company is now reaching out to local businesses and offering “Instant Mood-Shifter” Sessions. Typical Chair Massage is only part of the services offered. These sessions can show an instant return on investment. Increased productivity and morale, in addition to reduced stress are just a few of the proven effects of massage.

For Marla Kaplan-Pelle, owner of the Day Spa, the recent storm had the effect of speeding up the process of expanding the corporate division of mobile services. Although corporate mobile services have been available for the past few years, it has always taken a back burner to services offered at the storefront location. The company has now refocused their attention to the great need of offering massage to the masses. Simply put, there are a whole range of unique leadership and communication challenges that will remain for months, if not years, as a result of Hurricane Sandy.  Kaplan-Pelle states that “Business owners and human resource managers are reaching out to Hands On in order to reduce the significant personal, emotional, financial, social and physical toll that has been taken on their staff. They want to make a difference in the lives of their staff. Companies also understand the importance of employees’ physical & mental resilience. We are working together with local companies to help keep Long Island, “Strong Island!” she continues.”The people of Long Island have truly been devastated on many different levels due to Hurricane Sandy. But, we keep moving forward! That’s what Strong Islanders do! We at Hands On, look forward to being part of the repair process.”

Bringing massage into the corporate environment is not a new idea. Companies big and small have discovered the benefits of wellness in the workplace. They are using massage as a way to attract and keep employees, while also keeping them productive. Increasing employee productivity, promoting employee good will and setting that company apart from its competitors are all powerful incentives to bring in massage services.

Hands On offers unique stress- buster chair massages to businesses. The company offers “Mell-ow Shots” which brings mini aroma massages and the spa environment, including music, candles, décor, etc. to the business. These massages takes place on regular chairs, saving time between clients. Most people are more comfortable in this type of surrounding. Companies only need to provide a space for them to set up shop. Break rooms, conference rooms, empty cubicles – anywhere that employees can be sent for a few minutes of relaxing Chair Massage Therapy, will be perfect.

Hands On HealthCare Massage Therapy and Wellness Day Spa has been serving the Commack Community since 2000. Hands On HealthCare Massage Therapy is a recognized leader in Advanced Medical Massage in Suffolk County, Long Island. They are a Recommended Community Provider for Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Medical Massage is often the answer regarding Pain, Injury and Disease. Hands On offers Pre-Natal and Post-Natal Massage, Sports Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, Manual Lymph Drainage and much more. The Spa Services Division offers spa treatments such as facials, skincare, microdermabrasion, body treatments, permanent makeup and para-medical cosmetics. The Wellness Day Spa has an extensive Couples Spa Date Menu. Spa Parties are a specialty. An array of services and packages are available for both on and off-site. Mobile services include bringing the day spa to the doorstep at home, venue or corporate function. Common events include Bachelorette Parties, Showers, Birthdays, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, Sweet 16s, Corporate Events and Tradeshows. Hands On HealthCare Massage Therapy claims it’s Licensed Massage Therapists and Estheticians provide clients with the ultimate experience in attention, service and care.

Pets Best Releases Annual List of Bizarre Summer Pet Insurance Claims

Boise, Idaho (PRWEB) June 03, 2014

Pets Best Insurance Services, LLC (Pets Best), a leading nationwide pet insurance agency, today released its annual list of the most bizarre pet insurance claims submitted to the agency during the summer seasons. Since the agency opened in 2005, rambunctious canines have generated a wide range of surprising claims during the warmer months of the year.

“Dogs are often exposed to a wide range of risks during the summer months, as they spend more time outdoors and are exposed to potentially dangerous elements and materials,” said Dr. Jack Stephens, president and founder of Pets Best. “While we encourage pet owners to carefully monitor their pets, it is also important to be financially prepared for veterinary emergencies. For many families, pet insurance plays a valuable role in significantly reducing out-of-pocket expenses for veterinary care.”

Below are five of the most unusual summer-related claims Pets Best has processed recently:

Can’t Handle the Tote

Tote bags can carry many delicious treats to a summer picnic, so it was surprising that Tony, a 10-year-old golden retriever from Illinois, decided the tote bag itself was more enticing than anything inside of it. The dog gobbled the handle of a canvas tote bag, but luckily, he arrived at a local veterinary clinic within 45 minutes of eating the unusual item. When a veterinarian induced vomiting, the entire tote bag handle came back up. Although Tony recovered, the tote bag might not make it to the next picnic.

Curse of the Honeycomb

While most pet owners are aware that bees can pose a danger to their pets, the honeycombs bees create can also lead to troubling situations for four-legged family members. While a honeycomb may look appetizing, the treat wasn’t so sweet for Jordan, a 1-year-old Irish terrier from Washington. After devouring a honeycomb, Jordan experienced vomiting and was rushed to a veterinary clinic. Abdominal X-rays were taken and Jordan received fluids to treat his symptoms. The young pooch was placed under observation and then sent home.

Blister in the Belly

Blisters are often a nuisance during the warmer months of the year, when people engage in demanding outdoor activities such as hiking and yard work. J, a Labrador retriever from Colorado, tried a different approach to treating the issue by eating an entire package of blister medication. As a result, she required veterinary treatment that included abdominal X-rays, an intravenous catheter to administer fluids and pain medication, and an endoscopy procedure to safely remove the item. While the vet bill reached $ 1,057.50, Pets Best provided J’s owner with a reimbursement of $ 861.75.

Sandwich Surprise

Willow, a 5-year-old Scottish deerhound, decided to partake in his family’s picnic by devouring a sandwich when no one was looking. Unfortunately, Willow didn’t notice the toothpick in the sandwich, which he swallowed along with the rest of the food. After an emergency trip to a veterinarian, Willow was well enough to recover from the sharp snack at home, where he received medication while his owners monitored his condition. Willow’s veterinary bill was $ 935.37, and Pets Best provided a reimbursement of $ 803.16.

Toxic Trail Mix

Although trail mix is a popular snack for hikers and campers across the world, many of its ingredients are toxic to dogs. Meadow, a 7-year-old Bernese mountain dog in Colorado, learned this the hard way when she ate a large bag of trail mix containing raisins, macadamia nuts and chocolate chips, all of which are toxic to canines. Afterward, she received an urgent care examination and an apomorphine injection before being sent home to recover.

Pets Best offers a variety of pet insurance plans covering a wide range of accidents and illnesses dogs can experience throughout the year. The BestBenefit plan covers the diagnosis and treatment of hundreds of accidents and illnesses. The Accident Only plan covers veterinary treatment for accidents, including exams, X-rays, surgeries and hospitalizations. For more information about the plans offered by Pets Best, please visit

About Pets Best Insurance Services, LLC

Dr. Jack L. Stephens, president of Pets Best, founded pet insurance in the U.S. in 1981 with a mission to end euthanasia when pet owners couldn’t afford veterinary treatment. Dr. Stephens went on to present the first U.S. pet insurance policy to famous television dog Lassie. Pets Best provides coverage for dogs and cats and is the only veterinarian founded and operated pet insurance agency in the United States.

Northampton Valley Country Club Now Offers New Spectacular Features For Bar/Bat Mitzvahs

(PRWEB) December 24, 2012

Northampton Valley Country Club is famous for its wedding venues in Bucks County and Bar/Bat Mitzvah venue that caters to an individual’s specific wants and desires by allowing couples and families to customize the ballrooms by adding their own personal touches to the rooms. Northampton Valley now offers the latest cutting edge trends in the industry by continuing to add more features and options for their clients when it comes to wedding venues in Pennsylvania along with other special events such as a Bar/Bat Mitzvahs.

Over the last few months, Northampton Valley Country Club has added several decorative enhancements including up lighting. The up lighting is a fantastic way to add that touch of color to one’s wedding or Bar/Bat Mitzvah in the most elegant way. Having any color of their choice spread out throughout the ballroom under each of the wall sconces really brings a warm, rich splash of color to a couple’s wedding reception in PA. Adding a more bold color is popular with Bar/Bat Mitzvah customers. They like the “club” feel of the fun, bold colors, especially on the dance floor. Photographers love that splash of color in the room; it provides a nice backdrop for those room shots. Another lovely enhancement is table side wine service. Over the course of the last few weeks a few couples decided on making their wedding reception a bit more formal by adding a wine service before the main entrée was served. Before each guest is served the main course servers offered a red and a white wine of the guest choosing. This is a special touch and is sure to add a hint of elegance that will make one’s big day extra special.

Another way to customize and make a party their own is by taking advantage of the multitude of upgrades that NVCC has to offer. A cocktail hour can be loaded with special touches including a sushi station, a chilled raw bar, and the very popular “make it yourself” mashed potato station. These would also be great for wedding receptions in PA for couples that are looking for something different other than traditional after parties. The sushi station included tuna, eel, yellow tail, California rolls and many toppings such as soy sauce, spicy mayo and wasabi. The table was carefully decorated in an Asian theme, which brought an upscale element to the party. The center of attention during the cocktail hour was the raw bar. Located in front of the large windows looking out across the golf course was an impressive spread of various types of seafood. The raw bar included a towering display of jumbo shrimp, cherry stone clams on the half shell, snow crab claws, oysters on the half shell, and jumbo shrimp layered in stacked bowls of ice. The focal point of this impressive display was the custom I Pod ice carving in the center of the table. Green up lights beamed through the sculpture really bringing it to life as guests enjoyed the seafood displayed in the ice bed below.

Another stand out cocktail enhancement is the ever so popular mashed potato station. Guests have a choice of three types of mashed potatoes usually including sweet potatoes, Peruvian, and the more traditional Yukon gold. After receiving a martini glass filled with potatoes, the guests have the option to go crazy with any of the twelve toppings that are located on the station.
