The Lighter Side

My believe is that we take life to seriously and we need to laugh more. All my friends know that I love word jokes, so here are three classics that I have told over the years.

1. What do you call an “X” that just took a bath?

2. Why don’t anteaters ever get sick?

3. What did the number zero say to the number eight?

The answers are below the next article.

Idea of the Month – Air-filled Topiaries

Air-Filled Topiaries – Temple Emanuel

Here is a look that is hard to beat. It is our air-filled topiaries.  A colorful and elegant centerpiece that just screams WOW !!!  This is one way to beat the Helium shortage …


Helium Shortage

I want to begin with something that has made mine and other balloon decorators across the country crazy. That is there is a Helium shortage nationwide. Why it makes us crazy is the uncertainty of our supply. We never know from day to day or week to week if we will be getting any Helium from our suppliers.

I have a great supplier that has taken good care of me so far. My hats off to Bill Wilson and his staff at Fun Services. Sorry folks, they are not taking on any new Helium customers, but shop there for all your other party supplies.

There are a lot of rumors or reasons why the nation is in such short supply. A pipe line that needs maintenance has or had been closed. A number of facilities have been closed for maintenance. The need to drill more wells for Helium.

There is a bigger demand for Helium by the medical field, especially in the use of MRI’s. A large demand by the science and technical fields. The usage of Helium in producing plasma TV’s. Exporting Helium to other countries because other nations Helium production plants have yet to come on board.

What is fiction and what is fact, no one really knows for sure. I think it is a combination of all of the above. This is not the first time we have faced this problem, it happened in 2006 and 2007, but not to this degree. We got by it then and we will survive this shortage too.

One thing is for sure, the price of Helium has increased 25 to 40 per cent within the last several months. That is the reason for our price increase. We continue in our efforts to offer you the most competitive pricing for balloon decor in the front range.

Will keep this blog updated on the Helium shortage as more information becomes available
