How to Make Doing Dishes Easier

Let’s face it, doing dishes is a mundane task done so many times, you feel like you would rather do just about anything else but wash another dish or scrub another crusty, gross pot, pan or cooking utensil. Doing dishes is not a fun task. I have been scrubbing dishes for so many years. I have earned the title, “dishpan hands champ”.

My youngest child even hates doing dishes despite having a new dishwasher. It’s a chore. It’s a bore.

There are ways to make doing dishes easier, faster and more fun:

Wash those scummy dishes right away! Do what my mother in law does; she scrubs the dishes as soon as a meal is done. Literally! As she tells people to “take your time,” she whisks the still warm plates and bowls off the table into a warm sudsy bath awaiting her ultra clean dishes. She never has to scrub three day old putrefied stains and scum off her dishes.

Purchase paper plates,and paper bowls. Utilizing paper plates makes doing the dishes easier. You will have less dishes to wash every day, thus enabling your daily dish washing tasks to lighten up. Yes, you will have more garbage to throw away, and there will be more waste in the world, but you are helping the economy grow, and supplying jobs for people. Country dwellers can use paper plates to start a nightly outside fire to gaze at the stars.

Wash those dirty dishes after every meal. For people who lead super busy lives, with getting kids to activities, do the dishes at least once a day. Make doing dishes every day a major priority. Delegate doing dishes every day. Alternate family members by having one person do dishes on certain days of the week. Team family members up with oldest child and youngest child washing dishes together.

Make doing dishes easier by turning up the tunes to your favorite music, enjoying listening to whatever you enjoy while performing the most mundane task in the house, besides scrubbing toilets. Listen to classical music, jazz, eighties tunes or dance to the blues while scrubbing your troubles away.

Multitask! Do the dishes while doing something else. Help the kids with their homework. Place a load of laundry into the clothes washer and run back to the kitchen to wash the dishes.

Buy a dishwasher that does most of the work for you, or go out to eat every night. You can also perform the bachelor method of eating; stand at the sink and stuff your face. But you can’t serve a Thanksgiving meal that way, and the kids will only argue on who gets to eat over the sink tonight.

Learn How Cable and Satellite Television Providers Determine Prices for Your Commercial Business

Ever wonder how satellite television providers classify a business to determine their programming rates? You may not know this, but satellite TV providers offer different programming packages based upon the venue of the business. Let me explain the different classifications and value it brings on everything from Private Offices to Hospitals.

First, Private Viewing can be defined as television accessible only to employees. With Satellite Television, you add value to your business by keeping the employees motivated and connected with access to news and entertainment about the latest on breaking news and current events. Television improves employee morale and productivity. With the addition of Commercial Television, you’re creating an informative and entertaining atmosphere. Examples of Private viewing businesses include: Private Offices, Conference Rooms, and Employee Break Rooms

Second, Public viewing is defined by customer eligibility including: Television viewing accessible to the public. The main source of revenue is from the sale of food and beverages for immediate consumption and they do not charge an admission fee. Nowadays, this type of business will likely rely heavily on great food and television to help draw crowds and keep them in the bar or dining room. Examples of Public viewing businesses include: Bars, Lounges, Restaurants, Casinos, and Coffee Shops

Third, Business Viewing will be everyone else who’s main source is selling goods, services or experiences with viewing accessible to the general public. Television helps reduce one’s perceived wait time and reduce the burden of the staff to keep the customer in an inviting atmosphere. Examples of Business viewing businesses include: Auto Shops, Health Clubs, Banks, Salons, and Waiting areas.

Last, Bulk Viewing is in a separate class by itself. These properties provide television as an amenity to their residents or guests. Satellite TV offers unparalleled entertainment that provides customers the in-room experience they want. They may never want to leave their room. Examples of Bulk viewing businesses include: Hospitals, Hotels, Motels, Dorms and Apartment Complexes.

No matter whether you’re a restaurant or medical facility, satellite TV providers offer promotions and discounts to everyone regardless of classification. Some offers include free equipment, free standard installation and discounts on programming packages. (HD) High Definition is readily available and some programs also offer (DVR) Digital Video Recorders. It is recommended that only professionals handle these types of accounts as they require additional skills and expertise. Requirements for installation at commercial business locations may require approval from the property manager or owner.

Internet Television: Does DISH Network Have the Upper Hand?

Will internet television take consumers by storm? It may not be this year or next year but the transition is coming. I believe DISH Network may already have their foot in the door.

When I was younger, the internet was merely a place for the government and private business networks to communicate with each other. No access was given to the commercial public and the fact was, it was slow. During the 1990’s, dramatic improvements in communications led to the standardization of the internet as we know it today. The internet is now open to the public, it’s faster, more reliable and durable than it’s ever been. In recent years, many television providers started upgrading their systems to fiber-optic networks. This should provide additional support for a more reliable faster internet and in some instances video and phone services as well. Overall, the internet industry is being overhauled. I believe the future of television will be standardized and in one way or another all data will be transmitted over the internet to some degree.

Like the internet, the television industry has evolved over the past few decades. From traditional television programming known as over-the-air that’s distributed right to your television free of charge. To the 1980’s when an alternative was introduced known as the cable company, under this service you paid for cable channels offered by your local cable provider. These companies laid a network around your neighborhood or commercial property. Several years down the road, Satellite Television provider DISH Network and DIRECTV paved the way to offer everyone the ability to have cable channels, this self-reliant satellite system receives signal anywhere in the United States as long as there’s a clear view of the southern sky. Over the past decade satellite television has dominated the competition in terms of overall growth, reliability and customer satisfaction in the paid television service industry.

I see these industries evolving everyday, so what does this mean for the television and internet industry? With the internet and television (video) consumption widening, we can only speculate that the television industry will combine or conform to the internet and form a new video platform for pay TV providers. So, who’s leading the charge towards internet television? I believe, DISH Network will play the largest role with the transition of internet television. It’s been reported that DISH has approached several media companies about paid TV service being delivered over the internet. Opportunities like this may open the door for a more a la carte selection, choosing only the channels you want and leaving behind channels you don’t want. With DISH Network recently buying some wireless spectrum, we expect the company to roll out some type of internet service of its own, that should help support its video streaming business. DISH Network already offers a variety of Internet Television with international programming. DISH Network customers currently have the ability to send their television service out over the internet directly from their High Definition Digital Video Recorder.
