You may have heard, that if there's one thing we love more than cleaning it's ALLLL the pets!!! Seriously.
Some like the camera a little more than others, some we've never even fully seen in 7 years πŸ˜† Here are SOME of our favorite pets, throughout the years, we've managed to snag a shot of.


Celebrating 7 years of service today!! πŸ₯³
Still going strong, still the best in the biz & still thankful for such a supportive community.

An extended thank you to Cat & Wanda for sticking with us since the start. Through the rocky start and a never-ending pandemic, these 2 have been strong, steady & kind. We love you. ❀🍊πŸ’ͺ🏽

Digging these rainy, Spring, cleaning days...🍊πŸ’ͺπŸΌβ˜”


10 minutes of your time. Keep moving forward, Iowa City!

How would you like to generate solar energy to run your home or fuel your car? Would you like to store it away for a rainy day or sell it to a power company? If you don’t know much about solar energy, what would you like to find out?

In the past several years, the interest in solar has been exploding and for good reason: solar energy is becoming the most affordable form of electricity and could stabilize energy costs in the future; it could increase self-reliance when energy grids go down; it could produce good-paying jobs; and, most important, it could help us avoid catastrophic climate change.

JCED has partnered with The City of Iowa City Government, University of Iowa Office of Sustainability and the Environment,and other partners to learn more about how Iowa City residents feel about solar energy in their community. Let us know how you feel by taking the survey!

Survey participants can choose to be entered to win a package of 10 LED lightbulbs!

The survey is open now until Sunday, May 16th here:

Happy May Day!!β˜”πŸ’πŸ€

Across the Western Hemisphere, May is the month for
flora, fauna, and gardeners to revel in the arrival of spring. In Celtic
lands, Maia (the Roman goddess of growth and increase for whom
the month is named) originally shared the May Day holiday with the celebration of Beltane (β€œbright fire”), which marked the midpoint of the sun’s progress around the astrological wheel between spring equinox and summer solstice. On the eve of May Day, Beltane fires would be lit on hilltops across the land to ward off darkness and usher in spring. Gardeners are known to rise with the sun, but May Day likely saw larger crowds, inspired by its associated traditions and superstitions.

Upon rising on May Day, β€œrabbit, rabbit, rabbit” would be spoken out loud first thing, to ensure luck or fertility for the month. Leaving a branch of hawthorn at a friend’s door was also said to bring good
fortune. To ensure beauty, luck, and fertility, May Day dew from the
leaves of lady’s mantle was used to wash the face, rejuvenate the early riser, and restore a youthful complexion. β€œStrewing May,” gathered at or before sunrise, would include every available flower and fragrant herb of early spring, though mayflowers (English hawthorn or trailing arbutus, our American mayflower), birch, and rowan were favorites. Medieval records note streets strewn so thickly on May Day that they could not be seen for the flowers.

Throughout history, May Day has ushered in the revelry, flirtations, and fruitfulness evoked by spring. Villagers would crown a
Queen of the May and Jack-in-the-Green, who would lead the procession through the streets and cavort around the maypole. The
maypole has lingered as a pagan fertility symbol; it divided north
and south, and revelers danced around it, tethering the seasons
together with ribbons originating from a wheel of life that historically crowned the maypoleβ€”over and under, over and under, making an artful weave. And the ever-turning wheel spins on, across the ages, in ancient churches, elementary schools, and backyard gatherings around the world.
May Day celebrations are an invitation to romp in nature; celebrate life and rebirth; plant seeds; eat spring delicacies; fashion
posies, garlands, and bouquets; and drink in emerging fragrance
and beauty after a long winter. May Day garden traditions include
making May butter with sage buds, hanging floral May baskets on the doors of loved ones, and drinking May wine (with sweet woodruff ).
Over time, the holiday has evolved. The day now also channels
the hope and energy of spring into a campaign for human rights and a living wage for all workers. And it’s still an opportunity to ring in spring, sow some seeds (and maybe some wild oats), and celebrate workers’ rights across the ages. We might not get to strewing the whole street with flowers, but we can remember to send a May basket of violets or heartsease to someone we love.
..and don't forget to say 'rabbit, rabbit, rabbit' when you first wake!
