I miss old offices at Paratex

The Paratex building in SoDo part of Seattle is historic. I am told it was first located at Pier 91 on waterfront and moved to our present site in the mid-40's. There wasn't much in the building but warehouse space when I took it over in the mid-1970's. One of the things I did was to create an old-looking office on a second floor mezzanine. It looked good at first but is now simply a junk storage room. I miss that old look.

Paratex Supports Small Business

thread
Paratex Supports Small Business
As a local Seattle-based small business we are doing whatever we can to support local small business suppliers. For example, we buy a lot of office supplies through Office Depot - but, have begun switching for basic supplies like plain printer paper to NuLeaf. They are fellow members of the Seattle Executives Association and deliver promptly at a favorable price. Who wants to support a huge corporation like Office Depot?

Paratex Busy With Fumigation

thread
Unloading Zodiacs for fumigation Unloading Zodiacs for fumigation Zodiacs going to Australia Zodiacs going to Australia Apple root stock will become ... Apple root stock will become an apple tree in Central Washington We even fumigate delicate flow... We even fumigate delicate flowers
Among the items being fumigated this week were Zodiacs. Yes, those little hard rubber unsinkable boats. They are being exported to Australia in a deflated state inside wooden crates. Australia requires the wood crates be fumigated and certified for entry (to prevent unwanted wood-destroying insects). We were also busy with truckloads of apple root stock imported from Holland, destined for Central Washington orchards. USDA found a type of aphid infesting the plants. And, we routinely fumigate orchids imported from Thailand as a condition of entry when insects are discovered by USDA. Paratex is often a first line of defense in keeping destructive pests out of our country and other foreign countries.

Do Bedbug Sniffing Dogs Work?

thread
Do Bedbug Sniffing Dogs Work? Do Bedbug Sniffing Dogs Work?
Yes they do. And they are accurate about 97% of the time. In most cases an experienced Paratex professional can identify the problem without the need for a dog. However, there are cases where there are still doubts and verification is needed. Then we call in a dog. Paratex maintains a relationship with an excellent independent dog handler who we recommend for such occasions. This provides an unbiased opinion. If bugs are determined Paratex uses the most effective treatments available - including fumigation, that is not offered by most local pest control companies.

Give ME a musical break!

thread
Give ME a musical break!
The City of Seattle thinks it is sooo hip! And, it loves to play favorites with its favorites. Emphasis on the ITS!. So if you are a musician unloading your instrument you get favored treatment in the loading zone. Forget the guy that delivers food or, God forbid, the plumber or pest control guy. Flowers and music and ignore the basics, as, they simply aren't hip. Every time you give a favor (or break) to one person you take something away from others. But, Seattle politicians are already living their dream. Emphasis on DREAM.

KIVA is fun way to loan money

thread
KIVA is fun way to loan money
After a friend mentioned loaning money on KIVA I looked it up. My first loan was only $100 and to a group of women in Mexico that used it for pig feed. Today I received a payment on that loan of $43.54. They call themselves Las Ranitas (little frogs). The amount of money may seem like "chicken feed" to use - but, if a little pig feed helps people try to help themselves and run a business I like it. Look up KIVA and see how much fun you can have for a few dollars.
