Dallas News Carried this Story
Today I was refinishing a shower and bathtub out in Lewisville and I overheard the lady on the phone talking to someone that she called Rufus. It reminded me of A murder that happened back in 2007. At that time I was doing refinishing work for Town homes along the I-30 corridor around the Lake Ray Hubbard area.
I had talked many times to A Gentleman named Rufus, he was a survivor of Hurricane Katrina. The man had no Family, very little money and was an older Gentleman but appeared older than what he really was. He was relocated to the Townhomes after Hurricane Katrina and was just so appreciative of everything that some of the maintenance guys (2 of which were always smart asses) and would give him a hard time. I would always stop and talk to him since back then I employed (5) full time guys and all I would do is make sure the work was being done and take care of minor issues. I was in the office of one of the town homes when I heard he had started a kitchen fire (grease fire) and scorched his counter tops and cabinets and I stopped by his apartment and he was just down in the dumps. He just new they were going to kick him out. He didn't have the $1000.00 they wanted for the repairs. I was a close friend to the regional Vice President at that time and I called him and since my company would be doing the work anyway, I said it would be at no charge. I would just take care of it. About a week went by and I seen detectives out there but never thought anything and learned 2 weeks after the fact that Rufus had been murdered out off of HWY. 175 it was a hole in the wall club out there and I can't recall the name of it. He was killed in the parking lot, then his body was dumped in White Rock Lake. I learned all of the details while watching 48hours on A&E and honestly was shocked! The guy that murdered this man claimed self defense and he too lived out at the Apartments. I don't know his name but I remembered him because I always loved the 70 and 80 model Chevy pickups and he had one that ... just stood out to me and I had complimented his truck in the past, then went on with my day. I don't know why I felt compelled to blog about this today but maybe just to remind myself of how fast things happen and how I miss A man that I briefly knew. A man that had his life taken from him and I don't know if it was self defense or not. I heard it was the second time he had killed someone and claimed self defense and rumors swirled it was drug related... I have absolutely no Idea one way or the other but he was a frail man and I ... have no right to even speculate one way or the other. It just brought back a flood of memories when I heard that name and writing about this on my blog ... If for no other reason is proof that I have not forgotten this man. He may have not had family, at least none he claimed but he will not be forgotten... not by me.
I want to open with just a couple of thoughts that will integrate a little positive energy in to the negative we are all hearing.
Well, how can anything have an effect on you if you don't allow it to? Have we become so weak that someone's opinion effects our life? These few short years we get on earth are all we get. There is no more. Every day we spend angry is a day lost.
When is the Last Time You Did anything good through Anger?
I know, I am no different than most of you. I have allowed anger to consume me and consume is a perfect word for it. Anger is so consuming that you shut out any other emotion because you concentrate on the anger. I ask again, what have you done while thru anger that has benefited you or your family?
We have heard people say "I got so mad at work today I quit my job" (did that benefit you or your family?) Maybe you were right to quit your job but if you did it through a thought out plan then another job was lined up or if you are in a position that you don't need to work then a notice may have benefited a person under your position that had to work harder and longer because of the abrupt job opening.
Spending your emotion is like spending money
I have found that when I portray anger I get back poor results. I sure can't put my best work out if I am angry. Other people around me feed off the negative energy and before you know it the toxic attitude has affected everyone I'm in contact with.
My promise to my Customers
My promise to my customers is simple. I respect you! I do not care if you are young, old, black, white, pink, gay, straight, 600 pounds overweight or the perfect physical specimen. I will treat you with respect, I will maintain a professional attitude and I will put forth the absolute best job I can. Truth be known that is all any of us can honestly do and if we all simply did those things then we would start seeing this division in America fade away, because if you show people respect I know they will be put at ease with your presence. If we simply respect each other, then our lives will become a little more influential on other peoples lives. In return our own lives will become happier and more enjoyable.
This "TOUGH" image a lot of people are trying to portray is quiet juvenile when we think about it. I mean we are grown people networking together for business and our children go to school together by God we are a community! Just because you are kind does not mean you are weak! In fact that makes you one of the strongest people around! Your not trying to intimidate others, you are trying to be humble, peaceful. You don't feel a need to show up another person because you are confident in the unlikely event trouble does occur you can handle that situation.
Why not try it starting today! I think you will find your today will be much better than your yesterday was, when we move forward like that it has to make us all just a little better.
Bathtub Refinishing Dallas
Above is an explanation video for Dallas Bathtub Refinishing which explains why epoxy does not stay on bathtubs and gives a short explanation of how we chemically weld the new surface into the old surface, then apply synthetic porcelain at 2mm thickness which is checked at 4 points of the tub to gauge proper thickness. When you are ready for a permanent solution to worn, ugly, outdated tub and tile or if you simply need a color change then please visit me!

This prayer is far greater than I! It has nothing what so ever to do with using my services. In fact I will bet some people will read that and refuse to use my services. That too is ok. I still pray this for you. Scripture tells us that if we refuse Jesus in front of man then Jesus will refuse us in front of The Father.
When I had my father up at Veterans Hospital in Dallas I seen a picture that really hit me hard. It was a pamphlet that was handed out to all the navy during WW2. Now, when I look at the people of the U.S. during WW2 I see the last Greatest Generation Ever. The handout I have pictured below.
I think This is the most awesome Literature and piece of American History ever. I absolutely love it! Have a wonderful 2017!

Synthetic Porcelain with liquid Glass Additive
The advancement in technology has allowed the bathtub refinishing Industry to excel leaps and bounds within the last 5 - 7 years.
Today a local bathtub refinishing pro in Dallas was called out to Arlington, Tx. A customer needed a bathtub and tile surround refinished and wanted to make sure it would be money well spent.
Dallas Bathtub Refinishing was the company using the synthetic porcelain Spray with liquid glass additive.
The before and after results were posted below. This was accomplished by not only etching the bathtub and tile both but also by using the Fusion Lock molecular bonding agent hand rubbed into the pores created by the etching process. This concluded with 9 layers of synthetic porcelain with liquid glass additive being fused into the old surface. Bathtub Refinishing
I do not downgrade anyone
I was called out today to fix an issue that had occurred after another company refinished a tile wall surround. The customer was sure the other person had done a terrible job. However, I found water behind the coating when I sanded it off. The positive part is I was able to sand it down and fix it. I think we need to focus on fixing issues. Not belittle our fellow competitor. To be honest this was not the refinishers fault. It's not the homeowners fault either and placing blame does not fix it. Let's just get it fixed. That is why refinishing is so great! It can ALWAYS be fixed.
Let's not point fingers and be dishonest and unprofessional. Instead, let's enjoy life! Nothing is worth stressing over, loosing sleep over.
Today in Dallas that needed a cultured marble bathtub refinished and I also refinished a small shower pan for him at n/c. He was just the type of guy that was so easy to get along with. He was very appreciative of the work being done and it really, truly makes the day a blessing when you are able to make a living working for great people like this.
The cultured marble bathtub had just yellowed and discolored from years of use. Nothing too terribly bad but it happens with normal use over time and he had purchased the home about a year before so you never know what kind of chemicals were used on the tub prior to him taking the home over. The cultured marble bathtubs and bath vanities have what is called a gel coat that seals these off. The gel coat is like a plastic sheen and if you have ever owned one of these type surfaces you will notice they tend to scratch over time. These scratches will appear as dirt to the naked eye so before long you end up beating your head against the wall trying to understand why the tub or vanity looks dirty.
When this happens there is nothing you can do but with any type of cleaner that is going to make it look good again. However, It sure does not mean you have to spend thousands of dollars and endure weeks of dust replacing it. Refinishing the structure will give it a new life again. This not only works for Cultured marble but works equally well for fiberglass, cast iron, porcelain and tile when customized with the correct liquid glass and fiberglass resin additives.
