Of course you see it all of the time on TV, where they show you how easy it is to buy a house, make some improvements and then sell it for a profit. That is not exactly what we are doing, because the plan is to live here for as long as we need to and then try to turn a profit. The place is tiny and it has a fair number of problems, so we paid rather little for it. At first we called a Ottawa carpet cleaning place and when they told us how much it would cost to clean the carpets we decided to just rip them out. Continue reading We Bought a Small House
My husband and I used to joke about moving south, but I don’t think either one of us really gave it much thought until he was laid off from his job. His cousin in South Carolina told him that we should move there because there were a lot of work opportunities in my husband’s field, and we decided to see if it was something we could actually make happen. He looked at the work opportunities, and I looked for an apartment in North Charleston SC. We had been there a few times to visit his cousin, and that is one of the reasons why we wanted to move there.
Everything about the area is just so much better than where we came from. Continue reading Living in South Carolina is Amazing
As a guy in my seventies, I have not spent all that much time with my cell phone. My grandkids had them as soon as they hit the first grade. Our own kids got them and really hooked onto them in their forties as well. Their mother and I did not, but that has changed in the last few years. And with that, comes the knowlede that most of today’s companies need a good mobile app for their customers. To do that, I had one of our employees find an app developer in Singapore so that we could have that done. I don’t want to miss out, and I do want to reach out to today’s young people. I find millenials to be especially interesting people. They are our future. My own grandkids fit into that category.
Things were pretty simple when I was young. Well, that’s what myself and a lot of other people will tell you. But the truth is that things were pretty tough when we were young for the reason that we didn’t have all the technology help that today’s young people do. We couldn’t do our homework as easily as today’s children and teens do. You can look up anything now within just seconds. You can receive an answer in just seconds or minutes. To find even a small fraction of the same info when I was young, you had to do a lot of research by asking people. You may or may not get an answer. Often, you had to go to the library to leave through many books or look through an encylclopedia. So, my world was reather limited.
I sometimes think about what the future will be like. Will people always use cell phones, or will they be replaced with something else 75 years from now? Right now is a good time for both businesses and customers to connect in ways that they have never been able to do in the past 50 years.
I married the man of my dreams nearly 12 years ago. We have had a very blessed life together too. He has a great job that involves a bit of travel, and he is able to take me and our son with him most of the time. I work from home as a photography blogger, and our daughter is an honor roll student. We live at the Old Town Scottsdale apartments, which is an amazing experience for all of us. We thought we would end up having a house one day, but apartment living feels too good to give it up.
We have a two bedroom unit that has the most gorgeous scenic views. Photography is a huge passion for me, and I can sit on our balcony and soak it all in for the longest time. Our daughter loves how the apartment is laid out too. My husband and I have a large bedroom with a private bath. We also have our own private balcony. Our daughter’s room is at the opposite end of the apartment. Continue reading An Amazing Two Bedroom Apartment
I work in a small office. There are four of us who man the office every day, and we also have salespeople and delivery drivers who are in and out throughout the day. However, it is the four of us who keep everything together there. We have grown quite close, which is why Jessie, one of our coworkers, told us we should all consider visiting Sacramento chiropractors after her own experience with going to one. She had hurt her back at home, and it was hard for her to sit at her desk all day long.
She needed this job though, and she did not want to put the full brunt of what she could not do on the rest of us, not that we would have minded. Continue reading It Hurt Her to Sit All Day Long
Itls a wonderful thing that I was able to get Sacramento chiropractic care that helped me to stop feeling the sharp pain that I was previously feeling every day and night. My husband had been trying to help me out for awhile with back massages, but then he had a hand injury that soon put a stop to that. I found myself feeling scared that I would have pain for the rest of my life, and I am only 45 years old.
After having been in the workplace for 25 years, you can imagine that I’ve spent a lot of years sitting at a desk that’s not good for anyone. Continue reading Chiropractic Care Helped Me in More Than One Way
I had to find a major appliance repair in Sacramento recently when our stove suddenly stopped working. I was baking a cake and put the pan in the oven and then came back when the timer went off and quickly noticed it wasn’t baked at all. I thought that was funny and took a second look inside the oven. That’s when I noticed there wasn’t any heat radiating out of the open door. The racks inside the oven felt cool to the touch. Oddly enough the display showed that the oven was heated up to the appropriate temperature.
Obviously, something wasn’t working correctly. I was thankful that this didn’t happen during the holidays or during a dinner when we had a lot of guests coming over to eat. Continue reading Quick Fix for Our Oven
When I was looking for green wedding gifts ideas for my cousin’s wedding, I found the perfect gift for her and her new husband. I also found something else for me. Well, it is for my own upcoming wedding, which will be next summer. I had been thinking about making some chocolate roses as my favors, but as soon as I saw the green wedding favors I could give away, I knew that I was going to get something like that for my wedding. I was not really known for being green, but I realized after looking at these favors that my cousin was obviously converting me.
There were so many nice ones, and I had such a hard time deciding which one I want to give to our wedding guests. I thought that a tree might be nice, but I also knew that not everyone had the space to plant a tree at their home. I figured flowers were a nice touch, and that was something that even the person with the smallest yard could have. Continue reading Flower Seeds for a Wedding Favor
This is a great age for teachers and students, because innovations are always being made for learning. When I was growing up, my teachers used blackboards with chalk for teaching. They weren’t pleasant to see or hear, and getting chalk on your hands was the most annoying thing. Then when I became a little older, they started using white boards with dry erase markers. They were better, but just a new take on the same old idea. Recently the school where I work had smartboard installation done, and I love using it with the students.
The smartboard is better than a regular board because it can be used without the need of a disposable medium, like chalk or ink. The board can be written on with a special digital device. Things that are written on the board can be saved and printed, so if the students forget anything that was discussed in the class, they can have a copy of the notes and remember it all over again. I especially like using the board to make up quiz games for the students. Continue reading We Love the Board with Brains
My uncle owned a food processing company that is well known. When my father left my mom, I really needed a job to help out my mom because she was having a tough time making ends meet. My family was pretty upset by what my father did, and so they tried to step in to help when they could. My uncle offered me a job when I told him I wanted to find a place to work after school each day so that I could help my mom. He first taught me how to use a vibration monitoring system and some of the other equipment that I would need to know how to use to test machinery at his processing plant. This really helped my mom out.
I have a brother, and we were both in high school when dad left. Continue reading Getting a Job Helped All of Us
Moving to New York was even better than I thought it would be. I had heard so much about it from my best friend who had moved there two years earlier. She asked me repeatedly to come visit her, and I finally did. It was then that I realized that I wanted to move there, too. During my first visit, she took me around to look at Asian antiques in NYC and many other things like going to see a Broadway play and more. Everything is so worldly and different in that city. When I told her that I might like to move there one day, her eyes lit up with happiness. She said that we could be roommates, and that I should start making real plans to do it. That is exactly what I did.
My parents were a little worried when I told them where I would be moving. Continue reading I Moved to Be with My Best Friend Where All the Action is
It took a lot for me to get a cell phone. My husband kept telling me to get one, but I figured that since I’m at home more often than not, that getting one would just be wasted money. But when I got into a car accident one day and could not call for help, I decided to get one. It was then that I realized that they can help keep you safer. So when mine broke last week, I went to a Richmond iPhone repair shop immediately, I had learned that any little occasion can come up and you can find yourself needing your phone for some important reason or another. I may not use mine often, but when I really need it, I definitely need it!
I damaged my phone by not holding onto it really well. I had four bags of groceries in my hands and wasn’t holding on to the iPhone well. I figured that it would be fine. Continue reading I Make Sure That I Have a Way to Call My Husband at All Times Now
Of course I came out a lot ahead of a lot of the people in this state. Down to the South of here there were a lot of people completely flooded out and there were about twenty deaths here from the hurricane. I just had a little water get in the basement and I got the people at http://www.carpetcleaningoakville.org to come here and vacuum up nearly all of the water. The cause of that was really a bunch of debris blocking the ditches across the street, which caused water to collect in my neighbor’s yard and then in mine. When you have three quarters of an inch of water standing in your yard it is going to eventually get in the house and of course in my case it is going to end up in my basement. Continue reading The Basement Got Flooded in the Storm
Being a landlord for a retail building is a bit different than being a landlord for houses in the suburbs. The retail building has to meet quite a bit of stringent codes. Plus, we need to consider the safety of the public using the space along with the tenants. Of course, houses need a lot of work to keep them up, but commercial is different. We keep up on things by hiring professionals to manage the building’s infrastructure. We got a maintenance contract from a company that does HVAC contracts in NYC, and we even have a contract with a snow removal company. Your household tenants remove their own snow. When you lease retail space, you pay for it.
It is not a big deal as far as costs go. Continue reading Operating a Commercial Retail Space is Different Than Being a Landlord for Houses
Some people hang out with the wrong crowd during high school. I did it as an attempt to be cool, and when my parents found out, they were furious and forbid me from hanging out with them again. it’s a good thing that they stopped me, because my life would have been much worse if I continued to hang out with them. The same thing happened to my son recently. He started hanging with the wrong people, started acting differently, and wore different clothes to seem more intimidating. I used snapchat spy to stop him from doing something illegal that would put him in prison for the rest of his life.
The change with my son didn’t happen overnight. Continue reading Keeping My Son Away from a Bad Influence
I am really excited that so far, my plan to run my own small business has been working in my favor, and I do not foresee any changes to my fortune sin the near future. Of course, I need to be ever vigilant, because the more prepared you are, the less likely you are to fall victim any serious problems when it comes to running a business. I just went to http://www.thepaystubs.com to look at this software for generating pay stubs because that is one of the things that I am going to be able to do in the near future, and at the moment, I do not know much of anything about it.
But I think that I have time to learn everything that it takes to be a good employer, I just need to start now and make sure that I keep on it, and keep trying to learn things. I just hired a couple of people to work for my business, and they are going to start next week. So I aim to know as much as I can before they start, and then, of course, I am going to keep tyring to learn as things go.
I am only going to have two employees for now, but I can’t say how long that is going to last. If things go well, then I could see the need to hire more employees within the next month. But I am not going to worry too much about that right now, and instead I will focus on the changes that I am going to have to make to accommodate adding two need employees to my business. Previously, it has just been myself as the only employee of the business, and that kept things a lot more simple than they will be going forward.
When my younger sister told me that her husband left her, she told me that everything would be fine and then I didn’t need to worry about her. But what she didn’t tell me is that she was extremely depressed and she was having a lot of trouble with day-to-day life. I live at the Stone Oak Apartments across town, and I told her that she is always welcome to come here and get an apartment in the same complex. I told her that it’s nicer than where she lives, and I would really appreciate her being around all the time.
My sister is a very proud person. She often doesn’t talk about what’s bothering her, and she doesn’t want to be a burden to others. Continue reading It’s Always a Nice Thing for Family to Be Nearby
When the Seaside Residences in Singapore is completed, there will be 841 residential condos and 2 commercial spaces. Though not everyone living there will have a vehicle, there will still be over 850 parking spaces as well, ensuring that everyone will have a place to park, and there will be spots for visitors as well. Of the 841 condos, there will be a wide variety of different floor plans available to satisfy most people. There will be one bedroom suites as well as five bedroom penthouses, and everything in between the two.
The nice thing about this development is that the one bedroom units are not going to be all the same, nor will any of the others. There are differences in all the floor plans so future residents can pick out exactly what they want. Some of the condo units will offer an additional study as well. One thing that each condo will have in common will be the view. It does not matter where the condo is, each one will have a gorgeous view of the water, which is one of the biggest selling points of this condo development. Continue reading A Development That Will Fill Up Quickly
I hired a Sacramento personal injury lawyer after suffering a serious setback with the neighbors about two months ago. They own a pitbull, a vicious dog that they often never bothered to keep tied up on a leash. Sure enough one day the dog got out of the yard and attacked my wife as she was out for her evening stroll. Fortunately another neighbor was outside and was able to distract the dog long enough for my wife to get away and get into our house. Her leg was mangled, however, and she lost a lot of blood before we got her to the hospital.
Obviously I was furious with the neighbors and immediately called the police and animal control services. My neighbors made the situation far worse by attempting to deny their dog was even responsible for the attack. Continue reading I Got Effective Legal Relief
I got to thinking about this after I realized that one of the people at work had been ordering sildenafil online in AU. The IT guy got freaked out by this, apparently these sorts of web sites have a really bad reputation for malware and other types of malfeasance. He wanted to strangle this guy. Of course for me I am not really that worried about the company’s computers, even though that would make my life difficult if it was infected. I certainly do not put my private information on that infranet, because I am quite sure that there are a number of people at work smart enough to trace my tracks. Continue reading Can You Trust Online Pharmacies?
My kids want a lot of things this Christmas. They really good, and they do a lot of things around the house for their mother and me. You never have to remind them to clean their rooms. They are not sassy children. And they both work really hard in school. So, I’ve been looking around for some cheap tablet PCs and some of the other things that they are interested in. We have been pretty careful to not really spend much on them during past holidays, but they will soon be going to middle school. Some of he things that they want are things that can help them with school work.
When I was in school, I would have never imagined that I would be able to read books on a small handheld tablet. I had a big bookshelf full of books in my room back then. I was proud of all my books because I was a very avid reader. If a friend wanted to borrow a book, I kept a running list of who had what book and when they borrowed it. It cherished my books, so I made sure to pay attention to where my books were at all times. But now, kids can simply share books online. After they purchase the book, they can simply press a button, type in the email of the person who wants to read the ebook, and then press send.
Our girls are both on the honor roll at school. Unlike other parents, we never have to remind them to do their homework. They both have computers, but we think that they need tablet PCs so that they can move around the house as needed. I like the thought of them going out on our back deck and getting some fresh air while they work on their homework online.
I had always thought that California would be a nice place to live. My parents had taken me their for many vacations as a child. I loved that the days were warm and the nights were cool thanks to the breezes coming in off of the ocean water. I liked the pleasant change in the weather each day. My husband came to me and discussed moving there with me thanks to a job promotion he was thinking of accepting. Talk about exciting! I began looking up home communities online and fell in love with Hope Ranch and some other places. I asked if he thought it would be possible to move into one of those niceplaces, and he said that his company would be paying him enough with the promotion that would be very possible. As soon as I learned that, I told him I was all for moving.
