January 17th is the national holiday commemorating the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday.

To celebrate Dr. King’s birthday, enjoy reading the quotes below. His words continue to inspire even after his life was cut short more than five decades ago.

Quotes from the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

1. “We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”

2. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

Celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. birthday on January 17, 20223. “Forgiveness is not an occasional act. It is a permanent attitude.”

4. “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”

5. “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”

6. “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”

7. “Never succumb to the temptation of bitterness.”

8. “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

9. “We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.”

10. “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

11. “Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle.”

12. “Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.”

13. “There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.”

14. “Let no man pull you so low as to hate him.”

15. “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”

16. “Intelligence plus character—that is the goal of true education.”

17. “Out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope.”

18. “The time is always right to do what is right.”

19. “Be a bush if you can’t be a tree. If you can’t be a highway, just be a trail. If you can’t be a sun, be a star. For it isn’t by size that you win or fail. Be the best of whatever you are.”

Celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. birthday on January 17, 202220. “We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now because I’ve been to the mountaintop… I’ve looked over and I’ve seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the promised land.”

21. “For when people get caught up with that which is right and they are willing to sacrifice for it, there is no stopping point short of victory.”

22. “I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”

23. “True peace is not merely the absence of tension; it is the presence of justice.”

24. “There is nothing more tragic than to find an individual bogged down in the length of life, devoid of breadth.”

25. “Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will.”

26. “A lie cannot live.”

27. “There can be no deep disappointment where there is not deep love.”

28. “Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.”

29. “There comes a time when people get tired of being pushed out of the glittering sunlight of life’s July and left standing amid the piercing chill of an alpine November.”

30. “We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.”

31.  “Nonviolence is absolute commitment to the way of love. Love is not emotional bash; it is not empty sentimentalism. It is the active outpouring of one’s whole being into the being of another.”

32. “We are not makers of history. We are made by history.”

33. “Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think.”

34. “We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.”

Thanksgiving Trivia

1. What year was the celebration that is most commonly considered to be the first Thanksgiving?

A: 1621. This is the celebration that people most often talk about when they are talking about the “first” Thanksgiving. But there are others that are claimed to be the first Thanksgiving.

3. Under which president did Thanksgiving become an annual holiday?

A: Abraham Lincoln. The U.S. has celebrated Thanksgiving off and on since 1774. In 1789 George Washington made a proclamation that the country would celebrate a day of thanksgiving to God on November 26th. Some presidents after him continued the tradition, declaring different days of Thanksgiving. But it wasn’t until a proclamation by Lincoln in 1863 that the last Thursday of November became the official Thanksgiving holiday.

4. In what year did both the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and America’s Thanksgiving Parade start?

A: 1924. Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade was started by Louis Bamberger in Newark, New Jersey but was transferred to New York City where it is now held by Macy’s. America’s Thanksgiving Parade in Detroit was inspired by Eaton’s Santa Claus Parade in Toronto, Ontario.

5. Which president was the first to give a turkey a presidential pardon?

A: Ronald Reagan. John F. Kennedy was the first president on record for unofficially sparing a Turkey in 1963. The Reagan administration in 1987 gave the first official presidential pardon to a turkey as a joke. The turkey was spared and put into a petting zoo. George H. Bush made it an annual tradition in 1989 and each president since has carried on the tradition.

Clean Leaves from Gutters Before Clogs Start

Clean Leaves from Gutters Before Clogs Start

Once the leaves fall, don’t forget the ones that may now clog your gutters.

The leaves have turned and many are falling. It will soon be hard to see the green grass. Homeowners will try to decide if to rake intermittently or wait until Gutter Cleaning in Hagerstown, MD by the pressure washing experts at Complete Power Washthe trees are bare. The leaves that land on the roof and end up in gutters are leaves they don’t have to worry about, at least for the moment. However, when the late fall or early spring downpours can’t get to the downspouts, the worry will kick in. Anxiety might also be the response when melting snow refreezes as an ice dam, causing water to flow over gutters and down walls. You do not want to be getting out the ladder and ice pick in the middle of winter.

Clean Gutters Add Beauty to Your Home

Many also never think about gutters being the “framing of a house.” Until homeowners experience exterior gutter cleaning, they don’t realize the beauty

Clean Gutters by Complete Power Wash in Hagerstown, MD

              Clean Gutters by Complete Power Wash

such a cleaning adds to the house. Since gutters — like many parts of the home’s exterior — get dirty over time, it’s easy to forget what clean gutters look like. The homeowner just doesn’t notice the gradual deterioration. But freshly cleaned gutters add more to the overall picture than most can imagine. Curb appeal can make a huge difference to neighbors, or potential buyers.

Clean gutters inside and out are worth the investment.

Possible Health Problems and Property Damage from Clogged Gutters

The professionals at Complete Power Wash in Hagerstown, MD know how important it is to keep gutters clean and functioning at a high level. This is why they offer gutter cleaning as part of their pressure washing services. They know that mildew and other fungi can cause health risks, such as severe allergies, that result in respiratory illness. The triggering of an asthma attack is the most dangerous of the afflictions. The more severe asthma cases can cause hospitalization or even death.

Gutter cleaning keeps moisture outside the home.Misdirected rain water can also damage your home’s structure. The wood behind the gutters can rot. The house’s exterior walls can be damaged. And, if the water continues to pool around the base of the house, the foundation can be compromised, causing thousands of dollars of damage.

Complete Power Wash‘s techs will make sure the gutters are clean inside and out. Many homeowners are amazed by the house’s transformation. And, if you’re selling your home, you can bet prospective buyers will notice as part of their first impression from the curb.

Is Your Deck Ready for Fall Gatherings?

Is Your Deck Ready for Fall Gatherings?

Fall colors, firepits, friends and fun. Is your deck ready to entertain guests?

 

IFall parties on your deck or patio in Hagerstown, MDt’s the time of year for outdoor gatherings on the deck or patio. The smell of cookouts and the fire pit will fill most of the cool evenings for the next two months. It’s what many people long for following the hot summer days. Yes, you’re ready for this season and it’s finally here. But is your deck ready? Does it have that “just built” look or more like that “it’s ready to crumble” look? 

Does your deck or patio have ugly green and black stains? If the answer is yes, just know that these dark areas can be more than the difference between a beautiful home and an unsightly outdoor living space. And while these stains ARE taking away from your home’s beauty, the real problem may not present itself for several more years. The root cause of those stains can cause extensive damage, because they are caused by harmful elements. That buildup of grime, mildew and algae can cause rot and may even be a health hazard for some.

Such contaminants need to be SAFELY pressure washed away sooner rather than later. Experts know how to remove the stains and leave your decking materials unharmed. Amateurs know how to blast away grime and scar decking materials and leave you, the customer, very unhappy.

Deck before and after pressure washed by Complete Power Wash

A Dirty Deck is a Deteriorating Deck

The average lifespan of deck materials is between 15 and 20 years. The buildup of grime can take years off that lifespan. And, there are few who want to spend thousands of dollars on a new deck, because of neglect. Clean your deck now and save yourself lots of money in the long run.

Patio cleaning is important too, but more because of looks and again, the potential health concern for those with respiratory illnesses. Hardscape that is professionally cleaned can look beautiful again.

The Solution to Dirty Deck or Patio

The pressure washing experts at Complete Power Wash in Hagerstown, MD have years of training in the proper cleaning of deck materials and hardscapes. Many people — referencing the amateur pressure washers again — think you can just “blast away” grime on patio blocks and concrete, but that’s a bad assumption. Block can break under intense water pressure and concrete can easily scar, just like deck materials. This damage costs lots of money to fix.

Sidewalk cleaning by Complete Power Wash pressure washing company in Hagerstown, MDComplete Power Wash‘s pressure washing experts use the softwash cleaning technique. Softwash ensures your deck or patio will be cleaned safely and thoroughly. Softwash is a combination of gentle water pressure and environmentally-safe detergents. This approach is the best for cleaning with little to no threat of damage to wood, composite decks or patio materials. Our techs are trained to clean the right way with the right products.

End of Summer Checklist

End of Summer Checklist

This checklist will help you wrap up the summer season.

The calendar says almost October, but the warmer days will keep people clutching to summer for at least a few more weeks. The thermostat set in the AC position would say they aren’t crazy.

This means that families have already jumped into the fall mindset, likely with summer yet to be closed out around the house. And, with fall being a busier season, this checklist for the end of summer is a great way to be ready for the shorter days.
