Buying from American furniture stores is not just being patriotic, but makes sense, particularly if you are buying home furniture online. Even if not, furniture made in America from solid hardwoods such as maple, cherry, hickory and Oak from firms such as Nichols & Stone, Cambridge Mills and Simply Amish is of high quality wherever you buy it.
So why American, and why not import fine English furniture or French classic designs for your home? Some will prefer these of course, but it is hard to beat the solidity of American furniture made using traditional carpentry techniques with traditional American woods. Take quarter sawn oak, for example.
This comes from the same tree as ordinary oak, but the plank is sawn radially into the annual rings. If you imagine a radius drawn from the center of a cross-section of the trunk out to the bark, an ordinary plank is cut across that radius while a quarter sawn oak plank is cut down the radius. It is more expensive because you get fewer planks that way, but the grain is even and the resultant plank of wood less liable to warp.
Many American furniture manufacturers and cabinet makers employ quarter sawn oak for their furniture. Another particularly American wood is the American black walnut. This is a true walnut, unlike the African walnut which is a species of mahogany. So buying American furniture means that you are also buying sustainable American woods, which is good for the environment.
Quality of Craftsmanship
When you buy from American furniture firms such as Cambridge Mills, Nichols & Stone, American Craftsman or Simply Amish, you are buying experience and craftsmanship. Their products are crafted using proper joints, not just glued and screwed together like too much of today’s home furniture.
Yes, glue and screws might come up with a solid structure initially, but how long will it last? Nor just that, but if they cut corners with basic construction where else are they cutting corners? Is their wood properly cured and seasoned, or will it start warping in a few months? Has the seating on your sofa been properly upholstered, with well-tied springs and strong webbing, or will it start falling to pieces after a couple of years? Or is it actually just foam!
The quality of craftsmanship that you get from many American furniture stores can be second to none – or it can be the worst. It is up to you to select your furniture from recognized American furniture stores that are renowned for their quality and standard of craftsmanship. Stores like those mentioned above, or Southwood, Stickley, Sherrill and The Custom Shoppe – all American and all highly regarded.
Buying Home Furniture Online
Many of America’s best furniture manufacturers specialize in their work. It figures that craftsmen who can produce beautiful tables and chairs might not be so good at armoires or beds. Master upholsterers can make a sofa the most comfortable thing you have sat on, but would not know how to produce high quality functional home office furniture.
When buying home furniture, you may not just want to buy furniture for one room – perhaps you want a variety of pieces, which might involve a trip to several furniture stores or even several shopping malls. That is very time-consuming, and we don’t all have unlimited spare time on our hands.
This is where buying home furniture online makes perfect sense. Many online home furniture stores offer the products of a number of different American furniture firms. You can select your furniture from a variety of styles and also choose the firm that specializes in the type of furniture you are seeking. For example, you can purchase a beautiful sleigh bed from Simply Amish and the mattress from Jamison, both marketed on the same online furniture website.
You could also use one of the customization services. Many online home furniture firms offer online room planners. The Custom Shoppe is a perfect example. You enter the dimensions of your room, no matter how irregular, and the empty room plan comes up on your screen. You can then add scale representations of various furniture pieces, so you can find out exactly how and where each piece would fit.
You can choose your sectionals online to suit your room shape. The problem with sectionals is choosing the components most suited to your needs. By combining a room planner with the firm’s range of sectional products, you can buy home furniture online that makes best use of the space available to you – including corners. Buying home furniture online from American furniture stores makes sense, and there are many online that you can use.
I once found myself in London sitting on the floor of a friend’s flat, debating my next move. I had been traveling for a couple months and couldn’t decide whether I wanted to visit Morocco or Istanbul next. I had never been to either and both were well out of my normal comfort zone, a combination of criteria that should have insured a feeling of excitement no matter which route I chose.
Instead, both options felt boring to me. I knew, cultural differences and random unexpected experiences aside, what to expect from my next destination, wherever it was. No matter which location I decided on I would end up in a routine similar to the one I had been on while traveling the past couple of months. No matter how odd the destination I arrived at I knew I’d be able to find my way and do just fine for myself.
I realized I couldn’t choose between the two options because I quite frankly didn’t care to go to either of them. The growth I experienced on this trip seemed to be at a plateau and no amount of culture shock seemed like it would jolt me back onto the fast track of enhanced personal revelation.
Debunking the Myth of Eternally Vagabonding
After a couple months on the road I was tired of traveling and just wanted to go home. Though “going home” presented its own problems as I didn’t have a home to return to. I left with the aim of traveling indefinitely, yet even when I had been back in the States I moved often, leaving one location for another every couple months, sometimes within the same city, sometimes across the country.
Now, sitting in London, totally ungrateful for the opportunities at my fingertips, I wanted a real home. I thought endless traveling would be right for me but I was wrong, and it became clear the notion of vagabonding indefinitely wasn’t right for everyone. In fact, in all my travels I’ve realized the notion of constant, consistent, endless travel isn’t right for just about anyone. For most of us, travel is a special experience and not the way of life we desire for our day-to-day existence.
A Quick Caveat
If most of us weren’t made to travel indefinitely, than how often should we travel, and for how long should we leave home?
The answer to this question will always be intensely personal and depends on individual factors that are both ephemeral (personal disposition, relationships back home) and entirely tangible (money, work, mortgages and leases). For the rest of this article I’m assuming you’re in the fortunate position of being able to travel whenever you want, for as long as you want.
What’s the Point of Travel?
Before you can answer how often you should travel you need to first answer why you want to travel.
Do you get bored when you stay in one place for more than three months at a time? Do you love surfing and do you want to explore the world’s best beaches? Are you intensely interested in food and do you have a laundry list of native cuisines and restaurants you want to munch on? Do you simply want to see more of the world? Or do you simply want to expand your understanding of the world by experiencing as much of it firsthand as you can? Everyone has a different reason to travel, and knowing why you want to explore the world is a good first step towards figuring out how often you should leave home.
In my opinion there’s really only one reason for travel, a single reason that lies at the heart of every specific explanation you can give for your wander lust. People want to travel because they want to grow.
We travel to grow- to grow our ideas of other countries, to grow our ideas of the world, to grow our ideas of what it means to be human, and most of all to grow our conception of who we are and what we want out of life.
Thinking in Cycles
If we travel to grow then it makes a whole lot of sense why indefinite travel tends to lose its appeal over time. After a couple of months of traveling you will hit a peak. You will have learned everything you’re going to learn from the trip you’re on and you will have settled into a new routine, a new set of expectations, a new perspective that will eventually become just as rigid as the one you developed back home.
Humans are adaptable, and while the thought of being able to live out of a single bag in a country where no one speaks your language may seem like the height of adventure before you leave home, after a couple months backpacking in Cambodia you’ll settle in to a life that once seemed an insurmountable challenge.
Once you hit that wall in your travels you’ll return home and find home life to be challenging and foreign and filled with opportunities for growth and appreciation you never noticed before you left on your adventure. And then, after a few months pass you by, you’ll feel locked into a stultifying routine once more and ache to push yourself by hitting the road once more.
The answer to how often you should travel sits within the rhythms of growth and adaptation lying within all of us.
Finding the Right Pattern
While everyone is unique and everyone follows slightly different flows of exploration and consolidation there are a two patterns for alternating between travel and home life that seem to strike a chord within the greatest number of people.
- 2-3 months at home followed by 4-6 weeks traveling. Spending 2-3 months at home gives you the time you need to focus intensely on work, on home life, on building relationships, on seeing friends and family, and other similarly domestic activities. 2-3 months in one place also tends to be the amount of time it takes until the average traveler starts to feel the itch to explore once more. 4-6 weeks of traveling is a good amount of time to gain a good feel for one or two locations, making this pattern good for people who are happy seeing a small handful of new locations every year.
- 6-9 months at home followed by 2-3 months of traveling. This pattern lets you focus very deeply on a specific work project or other type of consolidation-oriented task whose completion you then reward with an extended period of perspective shaking overseas travel. Even the most ardent travel nut seems to find it relatively easy to stay in one place for 6-9 months when they have a passion-driven project to focus on. Once you leave home again 2-3 months is enough time traveling to either get very deep in a new culture (it’s an especially good time frame for learning a language) or to visit a couple new countries in one trip.
No matter which pattern you choose, no matter if you make up your own pattern, just know that travel is part of a larger life cycle, so find the right cycle that meets your particular needs for both adventure and security.
A heart attack happens when the blood supply to part of the heart muscle itself (the myocardium) is severely reduced or even stopped entirely.
If you know the symptoms and the risk factors of a heart attack, you can avoid having one and live a safer, healthier, longer and happier life
Heart attack has been reported to be the number one killer disease among adult Americans aged 50 yrs and older.
Typical symptoms of a heart attack include a crushing pain in the chest, sweating, difficulty breathing, weakness and pain in the arms, particularly the left.
Here are some family healthcare insights on how to prevent heart attacks.
Symptoms one could attribute to something else can cause devastating delays in seeking treatment.
These include feelings of indigestion, back shoulder and neck pain and nausea.
Early signs of trouble may appear during physical activity and disappear with rest.
Any numbness or tingling of the fingers or toes, dizziness, shortness of breath or difficulty in breathing should not be ignored.
It is not enough to know the symptoms of a heart attack, which can be wide-ranging and confusing.
It appears that most Americans are oblivious of the risk factors of a heart attack.
It is very important also to know the risk factors such as obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and family history.
Clinical studies, laboratory investigations and a number of surveys show that certain personal characteristics and lifestyles can lead to increased danger of a heart attack.
These danger signs are called “risk factors.”
These well established risk factors are high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, cigarette smoking and diabetes mellitus.
Attempts at modifying risk factors most certainly have contributed to the declining death rate from heart attacks in the United States.
While a few decades ago, U.S. death rates from heart attacks were on the rise, but today’s figures show that incidents of heart attacks have comparatively fallen dramatically.
And, overall, heart-related problems have declined about 25 percent in the last decade.
This decrease undoubtedly is due to better medical care of heart attack victims, but it is likely that a sizable percentage is related to modification of risk factors.
New drugs can stop or limit the damage of a heart attack, but only if the patient gets help immediately, experts say.
Once the flow of blood to a portion of the heart is blocked for several hours, the damage is irreversible.
Medical technology is advancing at an increasingly rapid rate. More drugs and medical technology are available than ever before and the entire population is now more aware of the seriousness of heart attacks.
There has been an increased interest in learning CPR and many community organizations now offer this valuable training.
Of particular concern by doctors and researchers is the role that the American diet plays in the health of one’s heart.
Obesity predisposes individuals to coronary heart disease. Some of the reasons for this are known, but others are not.
The major causes of obesity in Americans are excessive intake of calories and inadequate exercise.
When caloric intake is excessive, some of the excess frequently is saturated fat, which further raises the blood cholesterol.
Thus, obesity contributes to higher coronary risk in a variety of ways.
Many of the major risk factors for a heart attack are silent and much of the responsibility for their detection lies with each of us as individuals.
Regular checkups are particularly necessary if there is a family history of heart attacks of heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels or diabetes.
May these family healthcare insights help you live a healthy and happy life.
Building your own fashion style can be a fun way for you to really get in touch with your personality and allow others to get to know you through your style as well. One unique way to express yourself through your style is by wearing a custom-made buckle for your belt.
Having an attractive, stylish buckle can really complete an outfit. They come in all sorts of different styles, sizes and materials, so you can be sure to find many different looks to choose from. If you’re into the popular Jersey Shore “guido” look, you can get a nice looking, big metal belt buckle with an Ed Hardy kind of pattern on it that will have you looking awesome while you’re fist pumping at the club.
Another idea is getting some kind of symbol on your belt that describes your personality or heritage. For example, if you identify closely with your Asian heritage, it would be a nice representative of both your heritage and your personality to choose a powerful word in a symbol from your country’s language. Another idea would be a Union Jack, if you’re British, or a flag of the country you’re from would also be a good idea to represent your heritage in a unique and fashionable way.
A belt buckle can really tell a story about you. You can express your philosophies on life by choosing an appropriate symbol for your buckle. For example, if you adhere to Christianity, you can choose a cross symbol for your belt or the Christian fish symbol. A peace sign would be another example of a life philosophy represented through your fashion style.
To make a complete fashion statement, it would be a good idea to choose buckles that match items of clothing that you already have. For example, if you have one of those popular Superman t-shirts, it would be a nice touch to add a stylish Superman belt buckle to your belt when you wear the shirt also. You can coordinate your buckle with prominent colors in your wardrobe as well. If you mostly wear purple colors than it would be a fashionable choice to choose purple belt buckles or perhaps other shades that would compliment the purple.
Vintage belt buckles such as old soda bottle caps and game symbols such as Nintendo controllers and Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots are other cool and quirky types of buckles you can wear with your outfits to reveal a quirky side of your personality. These belt buckles show people that you have an appreciation for the classics and can allow people to identify with you and be able to easily start up a conversation with you.
You can also rep your favorite sports team with your belt buckle and wear it on game days with a matching jersey. Whether you’re a Yankee or Red Sox fan, you can have either of your teams’ symbols right on your belt buckle and let people know who you support. This could either be a good thing or a bad thing depending on where you are, so I’d advise you to stay cautious.
If you visit home furniture stores, you will find a bewildering array of house furniture. Nearly all of it looks beautiful on the showroom floor, but it can be hard to tell at first glance which furniture will stand the test of time and which will not. Here are some clues to bear in mind the next time you are visiting home furniture stores. These tips can help you decide which furnishings are worth your time and money.
Materials matter when it comes to house furniture. If you have a relatively large home furniture budget, it’s a good idea to look for items that are made of solid hardwoods such as oak, cherry, maple, birch, mahogany, walnut or teak. Softer woods such as pine, cedar, redwood or fir are a good choice if your budget won’t cover hardwood.
For smaller budgets, look for home furniture that is constructed of plywood, rather than particle board. Hardwood veneers over plywood can make very nice, high quality furnishings that are both beautiful and durable. If you can’t afford hardwood veneers, consider purchasing furnishings that utilize durable laminate veneers.
Good materials are an indicator of quality, but even the best materials aren’t worth much if the furniture’s construction is shoddy. Over the years, home furniture makers have developed construction methods that produce extremely durable, sturdy furniture. Unfortunately, some manufacturers have figured out shortcuts that make it easier and cheaper to mass produce house furniture but result in inferior items that will not have the durability of properly constructed pieces.
The points at which separate pieces of wood are connected together, called joints, represent potential weak spots in a piece of furniture. For this reason, strong joints are a good indicator of the quality level of a piece. The highest quality joints are made by carving two pieces of wood so that they lock together when joined. These beautiful joints are found in the finest furnishings. A more budget-friendly but still very strong joint is made by using dowels or screws. Staples are a cheap shortcut, and you should avoid pieces made with them you find any at home furniture stores.
Corners should be reinforced with blocks of wood that can be seen from the inside of the unit. Well-constructed furniture will have back panels attached to the back and dust panels between drawers, so these blocks may not be visible. However, gently nudging the piece will reveal how stable it is. If the blocks are in place, nudging the item should cause very little movement.
Always try the drawers if the piece has them. They should fit their openings well and line up with each other. You should be able to slide them in and out effortlessly, but you should not be able to pull them all the way out of the base. Doors should swing easily and noiselessly and should close neatly.

Packing Your Car
