02/14/2014 | A Stranger’s Hero

In as much as we like to celebrate with our partners on this day, I would like to share with you a poem an attorney friend wrote to all our service men/women deployed or otherwise who risk their lives for our freedom. She wrote this while stuck in traffic. We at Proctor Gas salute our service men & women who won’t be with the ones they love on the 14th but in our hearts instead.

A Stranger’s Hero
(A tribute to service-members everywhere)

I was sitting in traffic, despairing the work-load en route, when I thought of you, Friend and your daily commute.

My spirit was humbled, as I thanked God in Heaven for your selfless sacrifice that enables my sojourn down I-77.

Fighting tiresome court battles so that justice may yield, I pause in my passion as I picture your battlefield.

You don’t fight in a courthouse and your carpet is sand and your adversary is not controlled by a judge’s remand.

Exhausted and beaten, like a fighter stepping down from the mat, I drudge on to my next job exchanging briefcase for “mom hat”.

Chef, Chauffeur and cheer coach, this job has no end, but the day quickly leaves us and bedtime prayers are now said.

“Thank-you for Mommy and Daddy
and for everything that You do; and for Daddies who can’t be with their daughters, God, please comfort them too.”

As I tucked chins under covers with a tear in my eye, I, too bowed my head humbly and thanked God for your life.

While I do not know you and we may never meet, you are a hero to strangers may God forever bless you and keep.

With Loving Thankfulness,
-Kimberly

01/13/2014 | Winter Grilling Tips

Dress the part be warm, but no scarf’s or dangling tassels.

Correct grill placement…

  • shield it from the wind
  • 10 feet from any surface the heat may damage
  • never in a closed porch, garage or under an overhang without the proper ventilation
  • make sure the burners are clean and not blocked, you want a blue flame not yellow
  • plan ahead – preheat the grill longer than in the summer, cooking times may be a little longer so use a thermometer
  • keep the lid closed

11/01/2013 | Propane Safety

Transport your propane tank or cylinder properly. Do not place vertical containers in a horizontal position, and vice-versa. This can cause problems with the valves and their delivery system components.
