Local engraver?

I'd like to find a local business that does engraving or wood burning.
I want to personalize a gift or find someone who can engrave a little plaque.
Any recommendations?

Cellular Data Issue in Hackettstown

My friends and I all have Verizon and have noticed within the past two days whenever we are off of WiFi our cellular data completely does not work. Because it’s happening to a large group of people we have come to the conclusion there HAS to be an issue with a nearby cell tower.

Sending texts over IMessage also does not work and I am only able to receive texts after I have connected back to WiFi.

This is becoming quite the issue and need to know if there is a cell tower that is down near the Hackettstown area.... More

Has anyone worked with a Qualified Intermediary to complete a 1031 exchange, and if so would you recommend them?
