Facts About Memorial Day

On May 30th, 1868, Commander in Chief John A. Logan, of the grand Army of the Republic, issued what was called General Order Number 11, that designated May 30, as Memorial Day, also known as “Decoration Day”

He declared it to be “for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village, and hamlet church-yard in the land. In this observance no form of ceremony is prescribed, but posts and comrades will in their own way arrange such fitting services and testimonials of respect as circumstances may permit”.

The first national celebration of Memorial Day took place on May 30, 1868, at Arlington National Cemetery. The national observance of Memorial Day still takes place there today and it is honored by placing a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the decoration of each grave with a small American flag.

The federal law act called “Uniform Monday Holiday Act ” was signed into law on June 28, 1968 and took effect on January 1, 1971. This law established the observance of certain holidays to be on Mondays and this law changed the observance of Memorial Day to be on the last Monday in May and extended it to honor all those who died in American wars. People pay tribute not only with flowers but also with speeches and parades.

Do I Need a Climate Controlled Unit

One of the first things I ask prospective tenants when they call or stop in is whether or not they will need a climate controlled unit. Rent on a climate controlled unit are higher and there are fewer available units. So, do you really need one?
The answer depends on a few factors. First, the weather; are the temperatures likely to go to the extremes? That is, are the temperatures likely to fall below 32 degrees or rise above 90 degrees? Here at StoreRight Self Storage in Brooksville, FL the former is possible but not at this time of year, the later is almost guaranteed. And how about the humidity? Here, we do have our dry season but it is several months away, the soupy weather has just begun.
Next, consider what you are storing and what effects these weather extremes will have on them. While lawn and yard equipment and furniture are not likely to suffer from the heat and humidity, computers and electronics, old photos and important documents, antiques and family heirlooms are not going to fair very well.
Other things to consider are whether or not your items could be subject to warping and cracking or mildew and rust. Will you need to spend time in your unit frequently?
Once you have determined that you do need a climate controlled unit, plan ahead. Here at the Brooksville StoreRight Self Storage office we welcome walk-ins; however, it would be in your best interest to call ahead and see if we have a unit available in t he size you need. You can also reserve a unit online or by phone based on availability.
With a little preplanning, your storage experience will run very smoothly.

The Birth of StoreRight Self Storage

Once upon a time, not long ago in the year 2010, there were 3 guys who were friends and family ( 2 brother-in-laws and a Dad actually) that decided they wanted to expand their office space business and perhaps get into other types of Real Estate. After all, they had backgrounds, not only in Real Estate, but also in law and accounting. They heard about a Self Storage conference and trade show in Las Vegas and decided it might be an interesting challenge to attend and learn about the Self Storage Business. Besides, they all could use the vacation. So, off these 3 guys went. They had a great time and really thought the world of Self Storage may be what they were looking for. They took Self Storage courses, talked to Self Storage Investors and before they knew it, they found a Self Storage Facility in Lecanto they liked. They were able to work a deal and in 2011, StoreRight Self Storage was the name of their brand new Self Storage Business. Since none of these 3 guys had any hands on experience in the Self Storage Business, they decided to work with the manager at the Lecanto Facility and do everything the manager would do in order to really learn and understand Self Storage. After many months, they thought they had it all figured out and went searching for another Self Storage Facility to buy, which they found in Ocala. This would be the StoreRight Self Storage Ocala2 location. They found it was in their best interest to keep the managers of these Self Storage Facilities since they already knew the business and the operations of the Facility, if, the manager wanted to remain. Before long, in early 2012, StoreRight Self Storage, brooksville3 was born, followed by StoreRight Self Storage WinterHaven4 and StoreRight Self Storage Vero Beach5. Needless to say, these 3 guys were hooked on the Self Storage Business and wanted more. The search was on and with the additions of StoreRight Self Storage Recker Hwy6 in 2013 and StoreRight Self Storage Tampa7 in 2014 and StoreRight Self Storage Ocala8 in 2015, they now had 8 Self Storage Facilities in less than 5 years. Oh, how happy was this new StoreRight family. They had grown fairly quickly, but still are not done. Currently, the StoreRight Self Storage family consists of 25 employees ( managers, assistant managers, maintenance personell, etc.) with the Corporate office located in Lakeland, Florida. The hunt is still on for more Self Storage Facilities and more than likely, this StoreRight Self Storage family will continue to grow. Watch closely to see where another StoreRight Self Storage appears. One will be coming soon to a location near you.StoreRight Self Storage. Right Place. Right Price.

Birth Flowers of April


The Daisy and Sweet Pea are the Birth Flowers for the Month of April…


1. The English daisy is native to western, central and northern Europe. It is also widely naturalized in most temperate regions including North America, South America and Australia. They have been in human culture for over 5000 years.

This small daisy emerges in spring and lifts spirits because it reminds us that the earth is renewing itself again from the winter blues. It symbolizes innocence, loyalty, love, gentleness and rebirth since the Middle Ages.

The daisy is commonly placed on graves of our newly departed and larger wreaths of daisies are commonly given for the funerals of our departed.

Different cultures have many different folklore’s regarding the English daisy.

The French made a famous poem/game as love prediction with “He loves me! He loves me not!” Each petal symbolizes “he loves me” or “he loves me not”. Petals are individually pulled by a young maiden alternating from one to the other in order to discover if the object of her affection loves her. If the last petal pulled is a “he loves me” than it is believed that the boy loves her. Alternatively, if the last petal pulled is “he loves me not” then he does not love her.

The English girl believes that if she uproots a handful of grass with her eyes closed, that the number of daisies grasped, will tell her how long it will be until she is married.

The Catholic Culture believes that because the English daisy symbolizes innocence, it is “Mary’s Flower of God”. Some may say the English daisy could also be Her flower of God because of the symbol of rebirth as Her Son was reborn.

According to an old piece of German folklore, if the daisies were picked between noon and one o’clock before drying, it would bring success to any venture

An old Celtic folklore dictates that the spirits of still born children were reborn as daisies.

Pagan folklore says that the English daisy is the fairies flower and alternatively, they also provide protection against fairies.

The English daisy also is believed to offer protection against hysteria because of the packed petals. It is believed that you may be able to create calmness by hanging pictures in your home.

2. The Gerbera daisy was discovered in South Africa in 1884, by Richard Jameson, a Scotsman. However, it is believed that they are more than 4,000 years old. The daisy was referred to as “Day’s Eye” in English history. This was in reference to the way the flower opened and closed with the sun. The primitive medicine men believed that the daisy was a cure for eye troubles because of the way the daisy followed the sun’s pattern. King Henry V111 ate daisies to cure his stomach ulcers. The Gerbera daisy was also crushed and doused in wine for over 15 days and believed to cure insanity. The Assyrians used daisies to turn grey hair dark again by mixing it with oil.

3. The Oxeye daisy is a native of Europe and was introduced to North America both intentionally, as an ornamental and incidentally as a contaminant of imported hay and grain seeds.

It spread rapidly and readily from agricultural lands. Oxeye daisy is currently found in every state of the U.S. It is most common in the Northeast and the Great Plains. It is less common in the South. In the late 1800’s the Oxeye daisy appeared in the northwestern United States and had spread to more than half the counties in the region by 1937. It is the most prevalent roadside weed in the Pacific Northwest. The Oxeye daisy is listed as a noxious weed in Colorado, Washington, Wyoming and Montana.

4 . The Painted daisy is a Persian Insect Flower, Pyrethrum.  Parts of plant are poisonous if ingested. Handling the plant may cause skin irritation or allergic reaction.

The Pyrethrum has been used for centuries as an insecticide and as a lice remedy known as Persian powder or Persian pellitory  in the Middle East.. It was sold worldwide under the brand Zacherlin by Austrian industrialist J. Zacher.  It is one of the most commonly used allowed non-synthetic insecticides in certified organic agriculture.

5. The Shasta daisyis a cross of the oxeye daisy and three other wild daisies. . It’s a hybrid produced in 1890 by American horticulturist Luther Burbank. Luther Burbank had a fondness for the wild oxeye daisies that grew under the elm tree in front of his family home. He was a young plant breeder who was inspired to develop the Shasta daisy by cross-pollinating it with the English field daisy, which had larger flowers than the oxeye, then dusted them with pollen from the Portuguese field daisy and their seedlings were bred selectively for six years.

These hybrids bloomed nicely, but Burbank wasn’t satisfied because he wanted a whiter, brighter flower. He took the most promising of these triple hybrids and pollinated them with the Japanese field daisy, a species with small, pure-white flowers. Once he perfected the flower, he named it after the beautiful and glistening Mt. Shasta in Northern California.  He introduced his Shasta daisy hybrids in 1901.

About the Sweet Pea:

The Sweet Pea is an annual climbing plant that reaches around 8 feet tall.  It symbolizes blissful pleasure, delicate pleasure, good-bye, departure, adieu and thank you for a lovely time.

The Sweet Pea was developed by a Scottish nurseryman named Henry Eckford. Henry Eckford is the famous breeder of the Sweet Pea. Through cross breeding, he developed the sweet pea and turned it from a rather insignificant subject and transformed it into the floral sensation of the late Victorian era. It is also known as “the queen of annuals”.

The Sweet Pea thrives best in plant hardiness zones 5 through 9.
