In the flooring business, this is the time of year when we start receiving new
products and updates. We are seeing a lot of patterned carpets again this
year (including one the features a tree branch pattern) and the gray color
trend seems to be continuing. We will also be getting a new vinyl plank
product that is completely waterproof and can be installed over existing
flooring, including ceramic tile. Over the next couple of months, we will be
receiving these new products in store so come by and check them out.
Be sure to check out this month’s insert, with a funny, light-hearted
Valentine special!

Lori Breuch!

You are protected by Precision Flooring’s 100%
Iron-Clad Triple Guarantee!
Guarantee #1 - “Zero Regrets Guarantee!”
You’ll love your new floors or we’ll replace them
FREE! If at any time during the first 30 days after
installation you decide you don’t like your new
flooring for whatever reason, just let us know.
We’ll replace the materials (equal or lesser value)
free of charge. (With an outrageously good
guarantee like this, we can’t include the cost of
installation, so you’ll have to cover that.)
Guarantee #2 - Lifetime Installation Warranty
Buying flooring is not like buying any other piece
of interior décor, such as a sofa or a lamp. Why?
Because unlike other products, flooring is installed
or “manufactured” in your home. This makes the
installation critical. We offer a lifetime installation
warranty at Precision Flooring. You NEVER have
to worry about something going wrong with the
installation. If it does, we’ll fix it FREE! And we’ll
do it quickly.
Guarantee #3 - Installer Professionalism
Precision Flooring’s installers are neat, clean,
well-groomed, well-spoken and professional.
They are trained and certified. They are guests in
your home, and they conduct themselves as such.
You’ll receive the highest-quality installation in the
business. And after they’re finished, they will
leave your home as neat and clean as when they

Would you believe love poems
and messages are not
overrated? Sure, some may
consider them cheesy and
they can invoke an inner
register that turns us beet red.
Yet, do you remember the
early stages of a new
relationship when things like
that were anything but
cheesy? They grew and
deepened feelings of
appreciation, romance and
love. They were exciting!
Fast forward past that
‘honeymoon phase’ and
romance often wanes. For
some, the relationship makes
a hard turn along the way, and
the smallest matter explodes into a wedge that drives a couple
Before that ever happens to you, get cheesy! Write love
poems and messages, which invoke romance into your
relationship, and here’s why:
They are an awesome way to communicate, in depth, the
feelings you have for your special someone. Get real with your
emotions and give light to your passion rather than leaving
things unsaid or falling under assumption. Remember, most
people love it when their special someone is romantic; they
appreciate the effort.
Your words have the ability to kick
the dust off that romance and get
you back to the ‘honeymoon
phase’. Do you remember how
great those days were?
Look for ways to boost the
romance, such as leaving your
special message on your special
someone’s desk, pillow, or slipping
it inside their lunch bag for a
surprise find. Make it personal and
handwritten – avoid those
electronic send options!
Of course, Valentine’s Day is on February 14th, which brought
on the topic of love, but keep writing and sending your love
messages beyond the Valentine, and keep looking for ways to
keep the romance alive!
Much unhappiness has come into the world because of
bewilderment and things left unsaid.

Why is the
Chinese New Year Different?
We, in North America, celebrate the New Year on January first. That is
according to the Gregorian calendar, which is the common
internationally used calendar.
The Chinese New Year is set on a lunar calendar. This means the date
of the New Year will fluctuate from year-to-year, but will always fall
within January 21 to February 20.
In 2016, the Chinese New Year falls on
Monday, February 8th. This is their zodiac
year of the Monkey. Each person has a
unique zodiac based on their year of birth
according to the lunar calendar. Those
born in 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004 and 2016
have a Chinese zodiac of the Monkey.
Key attributes of Monkey zodiac people
are fun, loving, curious, cheerful,
energetic, clever, and they are excellent
problem-solvers with a thirst for
knowledge. They can listen and work out a
solution in unison and are considered
great companions.
To those who celebrate, Happy Chinese New Year, and may it be an
excellent year for all the Monkeys.
What is February Anyway?
February was one of the last
months to be added to the
old Roman Calendar around
713 BC. Back then it was the
last month on the calendar.
That changed near 450 BC
when February became the
second month, and it only had 23 to 24 days. It was followed by a 27day intercalary month, which kept seasons in line with the calendar.
When the Julian calendar took over, that intercalary month was
dropped, February grew to 28 days, and a 29-day leap year began. This
is the shortest month in the Julian and Gregorian calendars – we use
the Gregorian calendar today. February is also the third month of winter
in the northern hemisphere and the third month of summer in the
southern hemisphere.
Throughout every calendar year, February starts on the same day of the
week as March and November when it’s a 28-day month, and as August
in leap years. It shares the last day with October and January during
standard years. Plus, because of the standard 28-day cycle, February is
the only month that may go without a full moon. The next time that
happens it will be 2018.

If you haven’t visited your local library in a while, here are 5 reasons why you should:
With your identification, you can borrow materials for free. That often includes books,
CDs, DVDs, and more.
The variety is endless, from contemporary fiction, cookbooks and magazines to poetry,
children’s books and endless non-fiction topics. A library fulfills a reader’s craving
without draining the bank account or worrying about space on home bookshelves.
Free Internet access is available at most libraries, and many have computers available
that are hooked up to the Internet. You might have to reserve a station with the
librarian, but it can be worth it.
Movies, music and video games are available in many libraries too, which is an ideal
alternative to services like cable, Netflix, or rental options.
Most common, the library is a natural place to go to do research in the non-fiction
section, periodicals, resource department, and special research websites accessible
through library access portals.
