Owners of course, wer not interested in refunding our money cos they're uncaring, greedy real estate owners. Carolina Bach was cute. 411 Spartanburg Ave has fleas. Rent somewhere else.

Filed against :
Sparkling Pro Cleaning Services is an unprofessional company
PO Box 3334
Dayton OH 45401

Complaint Description:
Dispute with Sparkling Pro Cleaning service over a surprise additional fee leaves the cleaning service incomplete.
I made an appointment with unprofessional Sparkling Pro Cleaning Service to clean my house on 7/7. I had spoken with the owner 3 times, once to make the appointment, when I called to confirm the appointment, and third as inquiry as to when the crew would show up as the window of time I was given was nearing an end.

First, the crew showed up to clean my house with a small 3-year-old in tow. Cute as can be was the kid - but most inappropriate.

Second, an additional fee of $25 (60% of what I paid for the original service) is mentioned as a"travel fee". There is no language in the contract that states anything about an additional travel fee. It says "Distance restrictions apply" and "Tax and gratuity are not included."

Third, when I called to discuss the situation with the owner, she says fine. By the time I walk back in to my house, the cleaning crew is packing up to leave. When I try to call back and find out what is going on, the owner refuses to take my call, repeatedly sending me to voicemail.

Finally, the cleaning crew leaves trash in my driveway and my front door wide open, without a hint of apology or explanation.

The coupon was purchased via the website Living Social. Living Social have refunded my money in full. Living Social was expedient, timely and professional, all things sparkling Pro, were not.

Become a Picnik Master - Picnik Help: "Control color even in Black and White with Color Filters.

Color filters are traditionally used on the front of a lens to block some colors while allowing others to pass through in order to control what colors in your photo produce the darkest and lightest tones. Choosing the right Color Filter for the Black and White effect can accomplish this too, letting you digitally achieve the same level of control over your blacks and whites and shades of gray.

To keep a large blue sky from turning your photo drab, choose a blue Color Filter to turn the sky brilliant white in your photo. For portrait photography, Red filters work best to bring out faces. Experiment! Click and drag your cursor around the color palette to get a live preview of how the different filters bring out various parts of your image.

Color filters in action: The original color is left, turned black and white with a blue filter is center, and with a red filter, right."

myFranklin: MCM737-E1FF

Walt Disney's original vision for Disneyland.

The idea of Disneyland is a simple one. It will be a place for people to find hap-
piness and knowledge. It will be a place for parents and children to spend pleas-
ant times in one another’s company: a place for teachers and pupils to discover
greater ways of understanding and education. Here the older generation can re-
capture the nostalgia of days gone by, and the younger generation can savor the
challenge of the future. Here will be the wonders of Nature and Man for all to see
and understand. Disneyland will be based upon and dedicated to the ideals, the
dreams and hard facts that have created America. And it will be uniquely
equipped to dramatize these dreams and facts and send them forth as a source of
courage and inspiration to all the world. Disneyland will be something of a fair,
an exhibition, a playground, a community center, a museum of living facts, and a
showplace of beauty and magic. It will be filled with the accomplishments, the
joys and hopes of the world we live in. And it will remind us and show us how to
make those wonders part of our own lives. (Thomas, 1976, p. 246)
