I STARTED OUT AS A MIDDLE CHILD: Bathroom graffiti

We were a family of five, Paul and me, and our three children, ages 4, 3 and brand new.

New kids on the block, so to speak, we wanted to introduce ourselves. So, we decided to have a party. We called it a “bring a dish to pass” get together. On the invitations, we stipulated that the invitees were also to bring some graffiti, PG rated, if possible.” Graffiti was the hook.

Rayman Boozer Fights for Inclusion (and Color!) in Interior Design

In addition to shaking up physical spaces, Boozer is also committed to moving the design industry to be more inclusive of LGBTQ+ folks and people of color. Three years ago, he joined the Black Artists + Designers Guild after a friend, Malene Barnett, noticed “an extreme lack of diversity” at an industry gathering.

For a long time I’ve said that cloud architects need to be aware of all technology solutions, not just cloud-based ones. They need a mix of traditional enterprise systems, networking, security, governance, and now cloud-based solutions. They need to understand how all the pieces fit together in an optimized way that’s best for the business.

How to clean your bathroom in 10 minutes, 30 minutes or an hour

● After using the correct amount of bleach-based product on various surfaces, you should leave the room for 20 or 30 minutes, Cummings says. “A lot of times, when people have mildew or mold, they spray it and then immediately start scrubbing. But that doesn’t give the product enough time to actually work,” she says. “So spray everything down really intensively, let it sit, and when you come back, you’ll notice that half the work’s already done for you.” When you return, consider scrubbing your shower with a toothbrush. “It’s really your best friend to get those problem areas,” Cummings
