Smile enhancement can have dramatic results on your overall appearance. Even the smallest step can boost your confidence, self-esteem, and make you want to smile more. With modern advances in dentistry, cosmetic procedures such as bonding and porcelain veneers can make chipped teeth look like new.

CARTRIDGE-NETWORK - Griffin HampsonInk cartridge cost is currently a hot button issue.  Like many product categories, marketing representations may be factual, but can often be disingenuous.

Epson’s EcoTank printers (five models from $300+ to $1,200) come with bags of ink, poured into the storage unit feeding the printhead; NOT replaceable cartridges.

Epson represents each has about two years of ink; enough to print thousands of pages, providing very low cost-per-page.  True, but…

Not mentioned: the basic printer is an existing low-end model, generally $70+, is slow, with few extra capabilities, and has an expanded storage area for raw ink  So, one pays $250+ upfront for ink and the possibility of lowering the cost-per-page, if all of the ink is used before the printer experiences problems.  If the printer doesn’t last, only using half of the ink, the actual cost per page doubles. And, if the user does not routinely clean the printheads it will clog up, possibly rendering the printer useless.  (See www.tinyurl.com/he59cnn/ )

We recycle lots of printers, periodically testing to determine history and quirks.  Few low end printers print more than a few thousand pages. 

So, it’s a great proposition, IF one gets full life.  If not, you overpaid.

We can shed some light on this issue.

Cartridge Network, a full-service independent, non-franchise operation, sells and services printers and copiers. “We stock dozens of different printer models (inkjet and laser) and copiers too. We focus on a buyer’s needs and then explore alternatives to best meet their needs.”

We stock several thousand different cartridges. Shipping is free.

BEAVERTON LODGE - Margaret NormanAs we end the year, I am deeply grateful for our community of cherished residents and staff members and looking forward to the new year.

Beaverton Lodge -- an independent, locally owned retirement living community founded in 1988 -- offers comfort in continuity and delight in the unfolding seasons throughout the year.

Situated along a tranquil portion of Beaverton Creek, the landscape is home to local creatures such as ducks and a large variety of bird species. Our residents love the walking paths and gardens, with plenty of benches on which to stop, sit and enjoy the beauty and sounds. A few blocks away are the Beaverton Library and the Elsie Stuhr senior center.

Residents find all the features one would want in a retirement community: large apartments with storage closets; a full-service dining room; a mineral saline pool and spa; and a movie theater with fresh popcorn.

Family and friends are welcome to stroll through “the golden gallery,” where local artists showcase their paintings and other art.

In the spring and summer, residents tend their raised-bed gardens, which produce tomatoes, corn, cucumbers and squash. The Beaverton Farmer’s Market is just a few blocks away, with fresh local homegrown produce.

We offer a full activity program, weekly housekeeping and linen, scheduled transportation, and resident managers on call 24 hours a day — all with an affordable month-to-month rent.

I look forward to meeting new residents this year. Stop by for a complimentary lunch and tour of our community.
