The Great American Eclipse

Americans are gearing up for a natural phenomenon that few of Americans alive today have been privileged enough to witness- The Great American Eclipse. Some say that the events celebrating the eclipse along the Path of Totality resemble Woodstock. Do a simple web search for St. Louis Eclipse 2017 and you will receive a list of websites highlighting events and festivals along with safety precautions and travel advisories resembling a blizzard.

For anyone not understanding the uniqueness of this event, think about these facts provided by the Saint Louis Eclipse Task Force.

First total solar eclipse to touch the United States since the 1990s in Hawaii.

First total solar eclipse to cross the United States coast-to-coast since 1918!

St. Louis has not had a total solar eclipse since the year 1442!

St. Louis has 1.6 million residents living within the path of totality which ties St. Louis to Nashville for the most number of residents living directly within the path.

What you do to prepare for the eclipse whether you are travelling to a local festival or another day at work, you will want to take note of the impending increased traffic on the day of the Eclipse. Missouri is expecting as many as 1.2 million visitors to the path of the eclipse starting as early as Saturday, August 19. According to greatamericaeclipse.com the largest driveshed and area of congestion near St. Louis will be on Interstate 55 near Festus. This is due to the fact that highway 55 offers the shortest distance of travel for 13.8 million Americans to view the total eclipse.

Independence Day Activities – 2017

Tuesday, July 4th, 2017

Every year, Americans around the country adorn themselves in their Red, White, and Blue and run downtown to celebrate their independence and way of life. Even though America became independent from Great Britain in 1776, July 4th did not become an official national holiday until 1870 and not a paid federal holiday as we know it until 1941, giving all Americans a paid day off.

In the early days of celebration, Independence day would be commemorated on or around July 4th with a 13 gun salute to the first American colonies, parades, and public reading of the Declaration of Independence. Today, we celebrate with parades, BBQs, and Fireworks.

While New York City and Washington D.C. understandably have some of the best fireworks displays and attract celebrants from around the country, Saint Louis holds its own great celebrations every year. Fair Saint Louis celebrates from July 2-4,2017 in Forest Park. They kick it all off with the VP Fair Parade stepping off at 9:30 on July 2, and hold a fireworks show behind the arch every night.

Other communities around St. Louis celebrate with festivals and fireworks shows of their own. Read below to see the events taking place near you.

The Lisa Loveless Team doesn’t need a special day to celebrate our canine friend.

It is a well-accepted truth that having dogs as companions help to improve or alleviate a slew of health concerns as well as provide that 4-legged furry friend to keep and hold all of your secrets. Growing up with dogs, we here at The Lisa Loveless Team, understand this and appreciate the canine benefits.
June 23, 2017 is Take Your Dog to Work Day and is celebrated annually the Friday after Father’s Day. This day was debuted in 1997 by Pet Sitters International and encourages companies large and small to give their employees the opportunity to bring their furry friend with them to work.Lisa and Sarah are lucky enough to get to enjoy their furry mascot everyday.

Daisy is a 7 year old Rat Terrier that loves chasing squirrels in the backyard and monitoring the trash pickup out front. She occasionally slips under the desk for a belly rub. If you hear Daisy in the background while speaking to one of us on the phone, she is probably telling a story about how well she protected the backyard or that someone is coming to visit. Daisy is spoiled, but our workday wouldn’t be complete any other way.

Man Cave Ideas for Real Men

Looking for some ways to spice up your man cave? These man cave ideas will have you inspired to re-decorate your “cave” into the cool, refined, and rugged zone it was meant to be. Remember, you can still have a very masculine room without it resembling the dive-bar next door (no neon beer signs, no ripped vinyl seats). What you do need is some raw material here and there, some cleverly curated corners, and a few solid punches. The devil is in the details.
