    ( April 1, 2013 -- While it's long been a belief that proactive maintenance on a home like soft pressure washing and gutter cleaning can protect a home's value, according to recent statistics released in a study by researchers at the University of Connecticut, routine maintenance can actually increase the value of a house by about 1% each year.  Dave Wyatt, of Even Flow Services explains, "Having your brick, siding or decks looking new again can add real value to your home. It's no wonder we have customers calling us right before they put the 'For Sale' up in their yards."

    Roof cleaning is another service, says Wyatt, that increases the curb appeal on many homes and helps get the home buyers in the door. Says Wyatt, "Those black streaks growing on your roof are most likely a bacteria called Gloeocapsa Magna. This is a form of algae that grows on most exterior surfaces that get too much shade. The roof is one of the most crucial structures of any house and its condition will highly affect the integrity and value of the property. In recent years, black stains have been an increasing problem. The stains are formed by this airborne algae and can jeopardize your roof's longevity. It is also an eyesore that will diminish your home's curb appeal."

    Proactive maintenance also means gutter cleaning and Wyatt emphasizes this should be done twice a year. "Your gutters should be cleaned at least twice a year, in autumn when fallen leaves can accumulate, and in the spring when new tree debris can build up. But it's not just the inside that needs attention. These systems serve as a means of directing water down and away from the foundation of the home. Therefore, they exist on most homes and buildings around the country. While clean gutters can add to curb appeal, dirty, striped gutters can take away from a home's curb appeal just as quickly. These black streaks are in the oxidation layer of the paint and will not come out with ordinary cleaners or de-greasers. Clean houses look so much better with fully restored exteriors."

    About Even Flow Services:
    For 15 years, Even Flow Services has been providing northern Delaware and the surrounding areas dependable exterior home cleaning at affordable prices. Known for their punctuality and quality work, they strive for complete customer satisfaction and personally guarantee their cleaning, washing and repair services. They are proud of the quality reputation they have developed via word of mouth advertising from satisfied customers. They are licensed, insured and incorporated, providing continual peace of mind.

    ( April 1, 2013 -- By Cathy Rose

    Each night, hundreds of restaurants in Coral Springs,FL and the surrounding communities throw away good food prepared for the day but that has gone unsold. And each night individuals and families all over South Florida go to bed hungry.

    It's a situation Bobbie Celler first became aware of when his 16-year-old niece showed him a photo her friend had taken of food still in its package but tossed in a trash can by an eatery owner. It is a situation that irked him until he came up with a solution.

    Celler is a highly successful attorney and entrepreneur at the helm of The Celler Organization. Near and dear to Celler's heart these days, though, is the organization he founded a few months ago after he figured out how to bridge the gap between perfectly good food bound for the landfill and hungry South Floridians.

    It was the photo his 16-year-old niece showed him that sparked the idea for The Bobbie Celler Feeds the World Foundation.
    "I thought about it more and more," says Celler. "All we needed was refrigerator trucks to pick up the food after buying it for pennies on the dollar or taking it as donation. The birth of an idea formed in two weeks."
    That happened only after Celler convinced restaurant owners and grocery stores that Florida's Jack Davis Law protects businesses from liability if they give away food.

    They could sell cheaply or donate food with no risk.
    "It's where business meets a non-profit status and creates incentives for the business owner and for our organization to help those hungry families that need the help the most," says Celler.
    Bobbie Celler Feeds the World Foundation purchases pre-owned trucks that are converted to environmentally friendly ethanol-based fuel consumption. The food is then packed in the foundation's own customized biodegradable corn starch food containers and 100 percent recycled paperboard food boxes.

    "We use our trucks to deliver it to food banks and ultimately to shelters and homes," says Celler.
    Celler said he founded Bobbie Celler Feeds the World to give back to the community that fostered his success and because he wants to leave a legacy for his daughters, ages 4, 3 and 6 months.

    "I want them to say 'wow, that's my dad," he says. "They can transform any dream into reality if they believe in it enough."
    The Bobbie Celler Feeds the World Foundation not only does what its name says, but it is also a job creator in South Florida, just as the rest of Celler's companies are. The Celler Organization is designed to increase revenue for hospitals and physicians by implementing cutting-edge solutions to promote efficiency, reduce costs, and significantly increase healthcare revenue. It is comprised of Celler's law firm and medical billing company and one of the tech companies based at Florida Atlantic University and aimed at putting the school and its students at the forefront of medical billing technology.
    In 2012, The Celler Organization generated approximately $20 million in insurance reimbursements, mostly for non-profits, while sparing patients those expenses.

    To learn more about The Celler Organization or The Bobbie Celler Feeds the World Foundation, visit or

    Coming in October: Rock the Plate, a rock, hip hop and country concert to raise food for local shelters.
    The concert will feature 20 bands, including major worldwide headliners. A small admission fee and a donation of two canned goods gets you in the gate.

    ( April 1, 2013 -- On April 1, 2013 Baby Wisp announced the introduction of two additional brands of hair accessories Doggie Wisp and Dolly Wisp. With these two new lines they are able to reach out to markets which had previously been underserved and had gone unnoticed. One being for pet owners who want to dress up their dogs with exclusive and highly fashionable hair accessories. The other for doll owners who want to add some personalized style to their treasured toys.

    Beena Masellis the owner of Baby Wisp commented: "This was such an obvious move for our brand I don't know why I hadn't thought of it sooner. Of course, our customers care about their daughters and want to make sure they're wearing unique styles that are in line with current trends. But what about all those pet owners out there? They deserve to dress up there dogs too..." When asked, she continued: "Don't even get me started on the dolls, I know that every little girl at some point wishes she could do a little extra something to stylize her favorite dolly. I know I did when I was a young girl! You just don't get that type of opportunity, until you have a little girl of your own. Now little girls can get started accessorizing at a much younger age with their dollies."

    One of the reasons people seem to be loyal to Baby Wisp hair clips is that they have a reputation of always staying in place on even the thinnest hairs. The two new brands introduced will also be sharing the same patented hair clip technology. That means that any dog and doll owners who use these clips can expect them to stay in once they are placed. Which is nearly, if not just as important as making any dogs or dolls look fabulously stylish.

    London, England ( April 1, 2013 -- Earl Reginald Stevenson has been honored with a nomination for The Order of the British Empire to be bestowed by Her Majesty, The Queen.

    Stevenson is a commissioned Colonel and life member of Mensa. He is also a close friend of actor, Johnny Depp and is a direct descendant of John Stevenson, one of the first settlers at Jamestown, Virginia.

    The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire is an order of chivalry established on 4 June 1917 by King George V. The Order is composed of five classes in civil and military divisions. In descending order of seniority, these are:

    • Knight Grand Cross or Dame Grand Cross of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (GBE),

    • Knight Commander or Dame Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (KBE or DBE)

    • Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE)

    • Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE)

    • Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE)

    Only the highest two ranks automatically entitle its recipient to become a knight or dame, an honor allowing (but not prescribing) the postulant to use the title "Sir" (male) or "Dame" (female) before his or her first name (though men can be knighted separately from this and other Orders of Chivalry).

    Honorary knighthoods, given to individuals who are not nationals of a realm where Queen Elizabeth II is Head of State, permit use of the honor as a post-nominal but not as a title before their name.

    Awards in the Order of the British Empire in the Commonwealth Realms were discontinued with the establishment of national systems of honors and awards such as the Order of Canada, the Order of Australia and the New Zealand Order of Merit. Foreign recipients are classified as honorary members of the Order they receive, and do not contribute to the numbers restricted to that Order as full members do.

    There is also a related British Empire Medal, whose recipients are not members of the Order, but who are nonetheless affiliated with the Order. The British Empire Medal had not been used in the United Kingdom or its dependencies since 1993, but was revived in 2012 with 293 BEMs awarded for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. In addition, BEM is used by the Cook Islands and by some other Commonwealth nations.

    The Order's motto is For God and the Empire. It is the most junior of the British orders of chivalry, and the largest, with over 100,000 living members worldwide.

    Stevenson is a commissioned Colonel and life member of Mensa. He is also a direct descendant of John Stevenson, one of the first settlers at Jamestown, Virginia. Stevenson is also a well-known friend of the late David Carradine, Jan-Michael Vincent, and former FEMA Director and Undersecretary of Homeland Security Michael D. Brown. Stevenson also holds a coveted Kukkiwon 4th Dan Black Belt in Taekwondo.

    SAN LUIS OBISPO, California, ( April 1, 2013 -- San Luis Obispo Realtor Hal Sweasey attributes a marked surge in Email opens and click rates, web traffic, and out-of-town/out of area home buyer inquiries at his Southern California real estate firm to the Vyral Marketing education-based Email database video marketing program he adapted in 2012.

    Between October 2012 and February 2013, Sweasey's open and click rates on Emails going out to his customer database of about 4,000 are consistently high - 24- to 29- percent open rates compared to the industry standard of about 10 percent, and a 7- to 12- percent click rate, far above the industry standard of 3 percent.

    The lure, Sweasey says, is in the two educational videos he records and puts out to his current and past client database every month as part of a video blog series, each averaging two- to four-minutes long and covering trends, advice and answers to pressing questions in the real estate industry.

    Before discovering Vyral Marketing's educational video marketing program, Sweasey says he experimented with different marketing solutions - television, radio, print advertising and tech-based options - none of which did much more than lighten his wallet.

    "I've tried everything as far as marketing is concerned, and nothing seemed to work," he says. "When I first heard about Vyral Marketing's customer database marketing program, I thought it could be a good way to stay in touch with my clients, but I had no idea it would have the impact it has.

    "I know I've taken listings because of my Vyral Marketing videos; my name recognition is up and I noticed a distinct increase in out of town and out of area inquiries.

    "It's a great way to build a name brand."

    Vyral Marketing's video blog program is also in sync with Sweasey's client-centric philosophy that consistently provides his customers with two new video messages, month after month, conveying a sense of reliability and familiarity to which customers are drawn.

    The real beauty of Vyral Marketing's "done-for-you" customer database marketing is that, with the exception of the five- to 10- minutes Sweasey spends recording the two videos each month, he does not have to commit any time to the production or distribution process - a primary reason it works for him.

    "There's no way a guy like me could do this by myself every month," Sweasey says. "I have an Email database of more than 4,000, and all I have to do is record the video and Vyral marketing takes care of everything else, from editing to distribution, which is why it maintains its consistency and value.

    "When you think about it, these two videos are reaching my entire database of old and new customers every month without fail, which is so valuable, and the results are obvious -look at the numbers. No other marketing strategy I've tried has been this successful."

    In fact, when Vyral Marketing CEO Frank Klesitz first walked him through the video marketing program, Sweasey wasted no time diving in - and he's never looked back.

    "At first I thought it would be a good way to stay in touch with my clients without having to do too much, but it turned out to be far more effective than I expected," Sweasey says.

    Klesitz says that Sweasy's expertise, delivered to his Email database in short videos, is exactly what potential home buyers and sellers are looking for in a realtor - someone who is offering sage advice and industry insight, and at the same time projecting himself and his firm in a way that puts viewers - his potential clients - at ease.

    "Consistency and developing a strong channel of communication with customers is key to the success of the Vyral Marketing program," Klesitz says. "Implementing a consistent plan for educating customers through video is the best way we know of to utilize a business owner's top asset - their existing customer database. It is a cost-effective way to increase referrals and repeat sales.

    "We offer Realtors like Hal the opportunity to use video technology to gain more sales from their database of old and new customers with minimal time expenditure."
