I am proud and extremely honored to announce Constantine Sealing Service has been named to Pavement Maintenance and Reconstruction Magazine's TOP 50 Contractors list in 3 categories; Pavement repair, Sealcoating, and Line Striping. The list is made up of contractors across the country who all meet a certian criteria determined by the editors.

This is the second year in a row that we have made the list and it is a humbling experience. It honestly keeps me motivated to make it again next year. This list shrunk from 75 contractors to 50 this year. There are alot of pavement concrators across the country and let alone in Connecticut. As the competition gets bigger and the list gets smaller we have to adapt to changing market conditions.

My fathers work ethic is unmatched and is the biggest reason we have been fortunate to make this list 2 years in a row. With out him this doesnt exist nor do we even come close to this honor. I would like to personally congratulate him on his current and continued success!

We are techincally in the winter months but it has yet to really feel like winter, more like late fall. Temps have been cooler, but we have seen more rain than snow. Most people will call me crazy but there is something about the snow that I love. Maybe it stems from growing up and just loving to be out side. When my brothers and I were little we would always be the first kids outside all bundled up thanks to my Mom. Our activities usually inluded time trials on our little kitty kat snowmobile we used to have, building jumps for sledding, skating in the backyard rink my father used to make for us, or trying to hustle and make money shoveling driveways. Maybe it was the potential to have no school. Either way if there was snow, I was outside playing in it.

Fast forward 20 years later and nothing has really changed except I guess I have to wrok everytime it snows( Call us for your snow removal estimates!) It doesnt really bother me because its snow. Its cool. School doesnt get cancelled anymore but everything turns white and I still get that same feeling. Most people I know will complain about the snow, but they're a few that like to take advantage of what unique activities the winter months can offer.

I was messing around on the Farmers almanac this morning and found some scientific information that made me feel like a weather guy. Unfortunaately for most of you Southern New England is supposed to see more snowfall than average, but we are supposed to have warmer than average temps. Which means it will probably melt and make our cars a salty mess. Good for our car wash owners. I guess well see how accurate this really is.

Which got me thinking, what is the Farmers Almanac and why is it so rellevant. Well the story starts in 1815. Editor Robert B. Thomas wasa writing the alamanc and was interupted, sick, pre occupied with work, there are many reasons, anyways he predicts rain, sleet, and snow in July. Summer 1816 comes around and to the disbelief of many it does snow sleet and rain. Mostly inpart to the eruption of Mount Tambora. Its known as the year without summer. The Farmers Almanac instanly gained its reputation. Today the almanac is more scientific but they still use a "secret formula", which is comprised of histroical data. Its headquarters is in Dublin New Hampshire. The almanac claims a 80% accuracy rate but there is not much data to back it up.

To me it seems more like a generalization but for some reason it has been around for 225 years and continues to stay relevant. Either way it sounds like we just have to wait and see.

Last night I took a ride with my Dad to Stafford Motor Speedway to watch a few friends race in the SK modified series. We walked around said hi to some friends and went up to the grandstands to eat some really bad fried food (don't tell my mom). We watched every race and talked about all the races we used to go to when my little brothers and I were little. He used to bring us to Riverside (which is now Six Flags) every Friday night to watch his friends race back in the day when there used to be a track. We used to go run around, get autographs, and take pictures with the cars. I even remember going into some of the guys' garages on week nights and they would be be working on the cars and beating out dents from last weekends wrecks. My dad would put me in the driver seat of the car while he helped. I imagine it's still pretty much the same. These guys work on their cars week in and week out to get ready for the weekend.

As we sat and watched my friends race, their fathers were also there supporting them and working on their cars sharing that father son bond like my dad and I did. None the less, it doesn't matter what you do as long as there is something, a common ground, a hobby, whatever that activity might be (some of us chose to work with the old man everyday). Get out there and enjoy this Father's Day and take some time to remember those times you had with your father. I'm sure he will appreciate it more than you know.

Happy Father's day to all the Dads out there, especially mine. I know I wouldn't be where I am today with out him.
