It was that time of year again, time for my annual dentist appointment. I am not a big fan of the dentist, so I was not looking forward to the appointment. On the plus side, I do go to one of the top dental clinics in Norfolk, Nebraska, where I always know that I will be taken care of. I had no local dentist when I first moved to Norfolk; I asked my friends and co-workers here in town who they went to and who was a respectable dentist. Over half of the people I asked mentioned Family First Dental. I took that as a reliable sign and called and made an appointment. That was over 5 years ago, and Family First Dental is still my top choice for a local dentist, even though dentists are not my cup of tea.
White picket fences have long been a symbol of quiet, middle-class life in the suburbs, and the fences are both practical and pretty. In the past, picket fences were typically made of wood, but manufacturers nowadays have created vinyl options that consist of prefabricated panels of the posts, rails, and pickets.
