The Last Detail

Safer poured-in-place rubberized surfacing for playgrounds, running tracks, anti-slip areas and more!


In recent years, an increasing number of municipalities, schools and business and parks and recreations have been prompted by regulations and consumer demands to find alternatives to hazardous or high-maintenance recreations surfaces. Obsolete products such as concrete, shredded rubber, pea gravel, sand, and asphalt are being replaced with bonded rubber surfaces that are safer, long-lasting, impervious to weather and aesthetically more diverse and colorful.

Here are a few facts about our re-engineered poured-in-place rubberized systems:
* 20 year life expectancy
* ADA compliant (wheelchair accessible).
* ASTM tested to protect children from a 12ft fall zone
* Made of 100% recycled tire buffing’s rubber (the shock absorbent layer) and E.P.D.M virgin rubber, the top coat manufactured by B.R.G Stockholm, England and ship to the U.S.A opposed to scrap rubber from Ohio.
* A 10 year warranty
* Up to $10,000 disabled tax credit (form 8826).
* 60% color (green, red, blue, tan) 40% black (Graphic included/special design).
* Most systems are three to four inches.
* Price is $11.00 per sq. ft.

Thank you for taking the time to review this weeks spotlighted members!  

Please let us know what you think. We always want your feedback.

From the President...September 2017

Written by Byron Lester on .

We've made it to Fall, but it sure doesn't feel like it in Texas. The heat is generally responsible for the brown grass, drooping plants and lazy attitudes of people in general. But that lethargy doesn't have to extend to everything. We invite each of you to perk up just a bit next week by doing something genuinely nice for us and very helpful for you - and you can do it in about 10 minutes.

Email has proven to be a strong tool in getting information out to our members so they can make buying decisions on a weekly basis. We need you now to use your email to help us find business owners who might have an interest in participating in MerchanTrade. We know your referral can be very powerful in encouraging their participation. Therefore, we ask each of you to take a few minutes during Sept. to send emails about MerchanTrade to 5 business owners whom you know. Your endorsement is critical, but please be totally honest about your experiences. Obviously, you can’t promise perfection, but life doesn’t offer that either.

If you tell them you are a member of a local barter club and offer them a trial with no money outlay on their part until they have the first $1000 in trade business, we will honor that offer provided they set quality, fair trading terms. If interested, they should respond to you first so you can refer their name, #, etc. to us for contact. Some will not respond. However, more often than not with this approach, numerous businesses will be willing to see if we can produce. By the time they commit to trying our service, we will have sent them our on-line application as well as our current website at www.merchantrade.com and made sure they are comfortable with their spending options in the exchange, or we won't encourage them to join.

We only want new members who see the potential of barter and are willing to devote some time to spending their trade dollars. If they are not excited about the possibilities of increased business and personal purchases, and new relationships, then they shouldn't get involved. You can be instrumental by simply extending the hand of encouragement. Please make a commitment to do this. The future of our exchange depends on you.

Traders' Forum...September 2017

Written by Byron Lester on .

How do you feel about other exchanges approaching your members to join their group?

I've always felt that healthy competition is good. I can remember when I rarely heard anything positive about a trade exchange. Today, barter is increasingly popular, and I am proud to be a part of a worldwide industry.

So it doesn’t bother me as much as it used to when other exchanges approach my members because I always want what is best for clients. In the past, I was more concerned that unscrupulous groups would take advantage of my members because trade clubs operate independently so trade dollar values, buyer options, service, information, etc. differ from group to group. Today, even though that is still true and buyers should beware, there are far more credible exchanges than before.

At MerchanTrade, we are honest with our material and do not really perceive other trade groups as threats. We consider good exchanges, even those close to us, as allies in spreading the virtues of bartering. Healthy competition makes us all stronger for our members. After all, if clients are members of more than one club, they have the opportunity to compare and see what's truly in their best interest. That’s what we want!

Faith Photography

Faith Photography is a professional, freelance photography business. Rather than a traditional studio environment, we work strictly on location, bringing "the studio" to you. We personalize your images with your surroundings, not ours -- you get a personalized portrait with the convenience of us coming to you.

I am a photographer because I love people and the relationships we form with each another. The absolute wonder of a small child; the incredible beauty of an elderly person; the depth of love I see as a father and daughter dance... and hug and cry during her wedding reception - all these bring tears to my eyes. The privilege of capturing all the emotions - love, happiness, quiet contentment and giddy silliness - that form the fabric of our lives humbles me, and I am truly blessed to be part of a profession that provides priceless treasures that will be cherished for generations. The moments we share with loved ones today will be part of history tomorrow - and I delight in preserving these "slices of time" in photographs that stir the heart.

Woodrow House Bed & Breakfast

"Old Fashioned Hospitality…Modern Convenience" Built specifically to be a Bed and Breakfast, Woodrow House is the culmination of four years of dreaming, planning, researching and designing by the owners and hosts, David and Dawn Fleming.
The Woodrow House is the first permanent structure built on the corner lot at 19th Street and Boston Avenue. The land was first deeded by the state of Texas via Patent 457 - Vol. 30 dares August 2, 1878.

Woodrow House is named after David's paternal grandfather, George Woodrow Fleming (1914- 1972). Woodrow "Woody" Fleming was a Texas Rancher, agri-businessman, cotton ginner, grain merchant and entrepreneur.  Located across the street from Texas Tech University, Woodrow House is within walking distance to virtually all university events and activities.

Eagle Transmission Irving

Eagle Transmission Irving is dedicated to providing you with quality services.  Our goal is to serve you better.  We strive for customer satisfaction!

Searching for a transmission repair shop can be an overwhelming task.  The need for any car repair can cause stress and all you want is someone to do it right!  Here at Eagle Transmission Irving we offer a safe, comfortable environment with ethical business practices.  We will spend time discussing your car problems with you and will explain our diagnosis.

Here is some information you should know:
With the technological advances being made in the automotive industry, the days of simple transmission repairs may be gone forever.

As recently as a decade ago, a transmission specialist may have only needed to work on 10 different models of transmissions.  These models were the mainstream and were easily stocked.  Whenever parts were needed, they were accessible and relatively inexpensive.

Today, a transmission specialist must keep up with as many as 350 models.  The cost of maintaining transmission systems has risen due to the availability of parts and the fact that some parts have to be purchased from the dealer.  This increased variety, along with the growing complexity of transmission technology, means that transmission specialists must have more advanced training and continuous education.

The transmission system is usually ignored until there is a major problem.  Many people who notice their car is not running properly ignore the problem with the hope that the symptoms will work themselves out.  This could result in more extensive damage to your vehicle as the problem becomes more severe.

The following symptoms may indicate a problem with your transmission:
failing or delaying when shifting; thumping or lagging when shifting; the engine speeds up when you apply the gas but the car doesn
t; red, pink, or brown puddles under your car; the need to add transmission fluid; unusual noises such as whining sounds when you step on the accelerator; a grinding noise; a banging noise when you come to a stop; your car fails to move when cold but improves once it is warmed up; and the engine overheats.

If you suspect there is a problem with your car, have it checked out before more damage is done!
  We invite you to bring your car to Eagle Transmission Irving so WE can check it out the right way!  Call us TODAY!  We are The One to Trust!

Silver Health Centers 

Don't know what to do about aches and pains? We can HELP!

Silver Health Centers was created by Drs. Ana and Glen Silver. Both doctors graduated from Parker Chiropractic College in 1990. Soon thereafter, they began their private practices, one located in Oak Cliff and the other clinic in Richardson, Texas. The clinics, which now have a total of four chiropractors, are multi-faceted and multi-disciplined.

People of all ages present with varied physical ailments and are treated safely and effectively, with compassion and genuine care. The doctor's treatment program is geared towards individualized treatment plans for long lasting and permanent results. A team approach is used regarding treatment with the patient taking an active role in their recovery.

Our Approach
At Silver Chiropractic we believe that optimum health is a combination of many facets of life. It includes physical, mental, chemical and emotional responses working synergistically to help balance life. Positive and healthy attitude, proper nutrition, exercise, a normal functioning nervous system, healthy bones and muscles, decreased stress, proper rest, and proper health management are all required to obtain and maintain optimum health.

As a patient at SHC you can expect to receive proper health management for your needs. The doctors and staff work as a team to create an individualized health plan to fit your specific needs. Their specialty involves the diagnosis and treatment of the neuromuscuoskeletal system, which involves the spine, nerves, disc, ligaments, bones and muscles of the entire body and its function to all other systems and the body as a whole.

It is well known that "the nervous system is the master system which controls all other systems." Therefore, we strive to assist your nervous system to perform at its optimum level. Our doctors look for the underlying cause of your health problem and in turn treat the whole person. We utilize the most advanced and safe treatments, techniques and procedures to assist the patient with proper recovery and a healthier life.
