Have you ever needed a chiropractor but didn't know who to trust?  I hurt my back seriously in 2015.  That is a major problem for someone who does what I do!  So, I needed a helluva chiropractor. I found him: he is Dr. Angelo Marinakis.

He is the owner/operator of Active Life Chiropractic.  He helped me get my back working right again.  It took a long time because it was a serious injury, but he is amazing, talented and competent.  He is also a dear friend now, since not only is he a great doc, but a great human being.  He also trains dogs.  Ask him about animal chiropractic as well.  You'll be amazed like I was.

How about this, did you know there are animal chiropractors? Yeah, that was news to me too.  BUT, they exist.  And he is one of the best.

When we remodeled, we had to get some tile work and some new carpet.  We used Carpet Stop on a recommendation from a friend.  What a great suggestion!  They are located on Anderson Lane in Austin.  Loved their work!

Phillip is very personable, a stand up guy and very knowledgeable and helpful to me whenever I need insurance help.  I can't say enough good things about him!  You can click on the link above, or call Phillip at: 1-512-258-1267 x56236 (Direct).

If you need an excellent landscape service, my friend Scott Shirley is a knowledgeable Texan when it comes to your lawn and sprinkler needs.  I used him to bring back my lawn from the edge of ruin.  He implemented a program to get my lawn in shape for the spring, and let me tell you, it looked really good when he finished. 

When you need sprinkler repairs, help getting a lawn established or maintained, or other landscaping, call Scott!
