A reminder to everyone, we will be closed this Independence Day. July 4th, the day we kick back, eat a hot dog, drink a beer (or a root beer if you’re under 21), and watch giant colorful explosions in the sky late into the evening. As fun and enjoyable as all of that is, it’s important to remember our freedom, and our family’s. Whether you construct sculptures or construct buildings, whether you make business deals or make fishing reels, remember to take a moment of your day to think on your family, and your life here in the U.S.A. There’s always something to be thankful for, and today, it’s our freedom.
Sunday, July 2nd is “I Forgot” Day! So to avoid forgetting your shoes, or your keys, we recommend a planner! Writing down what you need to do, and what you need to bring are incredibly helpful for daily activities and events. And make sure you don’t forget to stop by our site for unique and local ads, with hundreds added every week. That is one thing you don’t want to forget.
Today is public service day, a day to remember the people who are bettering your community, and by extension, your own life. We’d like togive a round of applause to the well known and not as well known public service workers. From the bottom of our hearts, Ocala4sale would like to thank all of the mail carriers, librarians, teachers, garbage workers, veterans and soldiers, non-profit workers, and many others! This one’s for you!
Here are some all natural methods to lessen their (and your) anxiety over the 4th of July holiday and others where fireworks are inevitable.

Here are a couple of quick tips to taking better photos; First, don’t center your pictures. You can gain interest by using the principle of thirds. Put your object in one third of the space, it’s off center and often more interesting.
Next, get close, then zoom in closer. Phones are amazing tools these days, and these features are getting better and better all the time. Time of day, the light is softer early in the morning and before dusk in the evening, especially in the hot summer months.
Last tip, take lots and lots of photos! Practice, try different angles and perspectives. you’ll learn a lot and we look forward to seeing what you come up with! Share with us!
