Setting a table, properly, isn’t as difficult as it sounds. The basic rule is to set the utensils in order of use. You begin eating a meal by using the flatware at the outside left and right, and then work toward the plate as the meal proceeds.


Plates go in the middle smallest stacked on top, so you have the charger under the entrée, under the appetizer plate.

Silverware is placed in an even line, one inch from the edge of the table.

Knife blades always face the plate.

The napkin goes to the left of the fork, or on the plate.

The bread plate and the butter knife sit above the forks. However the bread and butter knife is optional.

The water glass stands above the dinner knife, white wine to its right and red wine top center.

The salt and pepper shakers should be a consideration of the table décor, as they are important to the meal not the decoration.

Happy group people in santa hat at Xmas business  party.

Every year around the holidays, businesses throw an office holiday party to show their appreciation and to give everyone the opportunity to celebrate and relax. It’s often hard to find money and time for office holiday party planning. That’s where this list of office holiday party ideas comes in! If you have been asked to organize a holiday party for work, do not stress. A holiday party does not have to be expensive or over-the-top. Use some unique, special ideas to make the party special and to show employees that work is not all about, well, work.

Get inspired by these company holiday party ideas:

  • Throw the party at the office, but bring in a food cart or caterer to set up a fun taco or sushi bar. Alternatively, you can rent out an atrium or public space like a library for a unique venue idea.
  • Make it a costume party! Have everyone dress up in 70’s clothes, as their favorite movie character, ugly sweater party with contest, or make it a masquerade ball.
  • Revolve the party around a special cause or charity. Set up a raffle or fundraiser for the cause and do some good!
  • Corporate holiday parties can be boring. Bring in a Karaoke Machine, 80’s band or DJ and make it a singing and/or
    dance party.
  • Spend the day at a Christmas tree farm, Vineyard or fruit-picking orchard.

Planning company holiday parties should be a collaborative event, so involve as many people as are interested. Create sub-groups to handle food, decorations, the venue, and the budget, so all the work won’t end up on your shoulders.

Picking the right generator for your event or project is crucial.
It’s important to always calculate how many watts are needed. Start by making a list of all the items you need to power and how many amps each item requires to run. The number of watts is equal to amps multiplied by volts. Then simply multiply the amount of Amps you need by Volts (typically 110V), will equal the size generator you will need.

For example: if you need to run 50AMPS X 110V=5500 or higher generator.genatorgenerator-1

  • Never run a generator indoors or in partly enclosed areas such as garages. Only use outdoors and away from windows, doors, vents, crawl spaces and in an area where adequate ventilation is available. Using a fan or opening doors and windows will not provide sufficient ventilation.
  • Operate the generator only on level surfaces and where it will not be exposed to excessive moisture, dirt, dust or corrosive vapors.
  • Do not overfill the fuel tank. Always allow room for fuel expansion.
  • Never add fuel while unit is running or hot. Allow generator and engine to cool entirely before adding fuel.
  • Never store a generator with fuel in the tank where gasoline vapors might reach an open flame, spark or pilot light.
  • Do not connect your generator directly to your home’s wiring or into a regular household outlet. Connecting a portable electric generator
    directly to your household wiring can be deadly to you and others. A generator that is directly connected to your home’s wiring can ‘back feed’
    onto the power lines connected to your home and injure neighbors or utility workers.
  • The generator must be properly grounded. If the generator is not grounded, you run the risk of electrocution. We strongly recommend that you
    check and adhere to all applicable federal, state and local regulations relating to grounding.
  • Allow at least five feet of clearance on all sides of the generator when operating.
  • Keep the generator dry
  • Inspect the generator regularly and contact the nearest authorized dealer for parts needing repair or replacement.
  • Do not overload the generator. Do not operate more appliances and equipment than the output rating of the generator. A portable electric generator should be used only when necessary, and only to power essential equipment.

A scissor lift is a valuable piece of equipment for many industries. Its ability to lift humans and large, heavy objects makes moving them from low to high easy. Before renting a scissor lift,scissor lift  it’s important to know which type you need, if training or certification is needed to operate it, and how much it will cost you.


What Is a Scissor Lift?

A scissor lift is a type of aerial work platform. It lifts people and equipment from almost ground level to heights depending on the type of scissor lift used. Heights range from 10 to 60 feet, and can hold weights of up to 50 tons. Those with a wider platform provide better accessibility, which prevents workers from having to reposition the lift often. They only move vertically, but with the bridge, workers are able to access items around the lift easily with safety.

Types of Scissor Lifts

  1. Interior Battery Operated Scissor Lifts

A battery operated scissor lift is perfect for enclosed environments. It does not emit any fumes, which makes it safe and healthy for workers. These lifts are often narrow making it possible for them to move between aisles easily. Warehouse workers or electrical engineers use these types of lifts the most because they allow them to access heights in tight locations not easily and safely achieved by other scaffolds and ladders.rt scissor lift

2.Exterior Rough Terrain Diesel Powered Scissor Lifts

Exterior scissor lifts powered by diesel emit strong fumes. They come in many sizes to accommodate the needs of those in the construction industry. To choose one, renters often consider price for the maximum height and platform size needed. These come with reinforced tires to make it possible for safe use on rough terrains.

  1. Hydraulic Scissor Lifts

For use indoors or outdoors, pressurized hydraulic oil powers hydraulic scissor lifts. Size may be a consideration for those seeking a hydraulic lift for use outdoors and indoors. Those that fit inside may not provide the accessibility needed outside. Those that provide the accessibility outside may not fit inside.

Many of the outdoor scissor lifts come with 4WD to ensure that the equipment is able to get through rough terrains.

The Cost of Renting Scissor Lifts

The rental cost of scissor lifts largely depends on size. Exterior scissor lifts and hydraulic ones are most expensive than indoor ones. People often rent scissor lifts for as long as they need them. They can be rented for as little as a day, weeks, or for months. Often times, renters can get a better deal when they rent lifts for an extended period.

The average daily rental price for scissor lifts is $100 to $200 per day. Weekly rates can be from $350 to $500. Monthly rates can range from $700 to $1,500 or more depending on the size of the lift. Since scissor lifts require delivery and pickup, there is usually an added fee of about $150 for those services.

Considerations for Buying Scissor Lifts

Scissor lifts are an expensive purchase. They can cost $24,000 or more. Most people rent scissor lifts even if they use it daily because of the initial investment and then the additional maintenance expenses that are required.

Tips for Renting a Scissor Lift

  • Measure where you will need to use the scissor lift. Be sure to measure as high as you would ever need to go, not as high as you usually go because you want a lift that will be useful at all times.
  • Consider renting a lift for indoor and outdoor use instead of just one that can go from the inside to outside. Outdoor scissor lifts often provide functionality that an indoor can’t provide, and vice versa.
  • Always check the delivery and pickup fees to ensure they fall within your budget. These fees can become expensive if you only need to rent a scissor lift a day or a week at a time.
  • Read reviews online of the scissor lift rental company you are considering to ensure it is reputable. Here at Sully’s Rental, we have been in business since 1947!

Renting scissor lifts is an economical choice for most businesses. Rent one for your needs to improve productivity safely and easily.

With spring upon us, it’s time to start thinking about the lawn and garden again, and what perfect timing since April is National Lawn & Garden Month.

This is the time to apply your spring type of lawn fertilizer and time to thatch and over-seed the lawn. Thatch buildup can smother your lawn and provide an environment for diseases. Remove thatch with a de thatching machine.

Over seeding will help fill-in the lawn and deter the re-growth of moss and weeds. Also, aerating the lawn will allow water to penetrate deeper into the soil and reduce the need to water during the dryer months ahead.

Lawn Edger’s are great because they are designed to trim the lawn along a hard surface like a driveway or sidewalk and cut a nice clean edge; As it adds definition to your outdoor space.

A Bedmaster and Bedscaper are perfect for creating beautiful curved landscape beds and/or redefining existing beds. They neatly pile excavated dirt in an easy to back-fill pile right next to the trench. The control of the excavated dirt results in minimum turf damage and less clean-up time. They can also be used for installing lighting and dog fences.

A Bedshaper is great for existing Beds creating clean sharp edges, even “S” curves. Differential makes it easy to cut an extremely tight radius.
