My grandfather planted a maple from a seedling he grew in a bucket. He planted it in the back yard before my mother was born. When she came along, the tree was already getting established. As Mom grew up, the tree grew too. When my grandparents retired and moved to Florida, they were selling the house. I decided to buy it. I have a Nassau County tree service come out now every year to keep that oak tree in good shape. My grandparents come back to visit at least once a year, and my mother and father come over often now that I am married and have children.
My wife told me she was pregnant by giving me maple seeds and a bucket a couple of years ago. That seedling grew and is now another maple tree growing in our back yard. There is a tire swing on the big tree that I used to swing on when I was a kid. It has a piece of thick rubber covering the top and sides of the stout branch, and a chain is looped over it. The rubber protects the tree branch from wear as kids get on the tire swing. One day the little tree will be big enough to have its own tire swing. We have the Nassau County tree service keep an eye on the little tree as it grows alongside its big brother.
Trees are so capable of marking moments in time. They grow slowly and endure for ages. They are so tied with many of the memories that I have of this place that I would be very sad if one of them had to be cut down. I wonder how many other trees there are in the world that are special to someone’s memory of childhood?
As the owner of a new company, I’ve had quite a busy year. My company is still fairly small, but we get a lot of work done. I used corporate secretarial services in Singapore to find a secretary for the company, and did some interviews with other people to fill in other positions in the company. I like the small size of the company for now, because it allows everyone to discuss ideas more clearly. Still, I wouldn’t mind having more people working at the company to make things move more efficiently.
My company is one of the many companies that make containers for carrying drinks. What sets our company apart from the other ones is that we have a special design for our container that helps it to keep items cold or hot for longer periods of time. The typical designs can keep things at a desired temperature for some hours, but ours go longer than that. The lids on our containers have a special air tight seal that keeps hot or cool air from escaping, and the containers themselves are properly insulated to do the same. The containers can fit into any normal cup slot in a car and can be easily used with a straw.
The secretary handles all of the inquiries from clients who want to order some of our containers. It’s usually stores who want to have them on their shelves, although we have gotten some orders from companies that want to have a special logo put onto the containers so they can hand them out to their employees. This is something we only do for orders of a certain amount, as it’s more cost effective to produce these customer containers when you order more than one or a few. We may start doing individual custom orders for a certain price in the future.
It hurts to hear bad news, but sometimes, as people, we’re better off because of it. A friend of mine was in a relationship with a girl, and things looked fairly normal between them, but I had a feeling that something was wrong. I thought that the girl may have been cheating on my friend. I didn’t have any proof that she was actually doing it, and I couldn’t just accuse my friend’s girlfriend of cheating, so I did some digging. I went to https://hackceptional.com/snapchat-hack/ to learn how to hack the girl’s Snapchat account so that I could look for any clues about her.
Once I used the hack, I took a look at what the girl had been posting on her Snapchat. It was mostly boring stuff, but there was one thing that looked out of the ordinary. It was a picture of the girl that was cropped. Although the girl had cut out mostly everything in the picture that wasn’t her, you could still see a hand around her waist, and this hand didn’t belong to my friend.

We used to keep track of sales and other stuff on paper. I remember being up late on Thursday evenings tabulating payroll deductions to be able to hand out paychecks on Fridays to our employees. Then the computer age changed everything. We were early adopters of technology to track consumer everything. Most people have no idea of the sheer volume of data that is captured about them. The goal is to get you to buy more things, not to just know stuff about you. CRM is customer relationship management, and we employ Microsoft Dynamics integration to get all of our systems from point-of-sale to customer-input data on the website to work together to improve everything about our business. Continue reading A Hint of How CRM Works in Tracking Consumer Data
I have a teenage daughter and I am very aware of how serious the social media aspect of growing up can be. It can be very hard for a kid to post things that are clever, and sometimes they even stress about what they are going to post. Their social media is a projection of how they want to be seen. I saw that there was an instagram hacker that could actually help me get into my daughter’s social media account. I did not know if I was going to actually be able to get away with using it. I know that it is a huge breach of trust and if I used it, that there would be no going back. Continue reading Social Media Can Tell You a Lot
My brother was moving to Atlanta and asked me if I knew of a decent apartment for him to rent. He is a minimalist kind of guy who is frugal with money. He wanted to be in the midtown Atlanta area so I started looking for apartments in College Park GA and thereabout. He hit me with a criteria list that was not too difficult. He did want a place that was access controlled. A lot of places are really open. He wanted the peace of mind of the extra security for his home because he works for an agency that has him encounter some “questionable personalities” as he likes to refer to them when he jokes about his job.
I told him to check out the studio apartments at The Pad on Harvard. They have nice studio apartments up to two bedroom places. Continue reading Finding My Brother a Nice Studio Apartment in Atlanta
I was really pretty upset when I realized that I had brought something unpleasant back from my business trip. I was staying at a pretty good hotel in Boston and I never noticed it when I was there. However within a few days back home I had to start trying to figure out where to get a bed bug exterminator in NYC. I had heard some time ago that they had succeeded in getting rid of the nasty things in this country, but obviously they are persistent and they are really eager to tag along with anyone who stays in a hotel any place in the world. They were always in the other parts of the world and once they got back in this country, that was all that it took. The things will obviously spread like a wild fire as soon as you give them a toehold any place in the country. Continue reading I Just Got Back from Boston
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
This past month has been one of my best ones yet as a bitcoin trader. The prices of bitcoin went up a great deal after being quite low, and I sold some of my coin off after the increase, which net me a lot of money. I decided to save some of that money so that I could gain some interest from it in my savings account. The rest of the money I used to treat myself. I wanted to have a vacation, so I took a trip out of state to one of my favorite camping destinations.
Although I was in the wilderness, I was still able to look at the trading app that was on my phone because my phone was able to get a signal. It’s amazing how great technology is that I can get a signal in places where there should be none. I had to put my phone away because I wanted to have some time to relax. Continue reading Time to Trade While Relaxing
I found a great online store that had the products that I like to use at a price that is very reasonable. The reason I like it so much is because I am able to get some items there that are just too hard or even impossible to get at the stores around me. Even if I could get the products closer to home, I am pretty sure the prices would be a lot higher than what this online store charges. Since I had never ordered from them before, I did a search for iHerb reviews.
Anytime I try something new, whether it is a product or a store, I always go online and look at some reviews from other people. To me, that is the best way to determine if it is a reputable item or store to order from. A store can have the best advertising and a really nice website, but that does not mean they have quality products or service. Continue reading A Review Helped Make Up My Mind
Now that we have the ability to send in our DNA and found out who are relatives area, I think that it is really cool. I like that we can find out who will fall from our family tree when we shake it. There are always a few nuts but generally I have been pretty lucky. There are people who tell me that I need to make sure that I look up saari raat neend na aave and other people that would be really into seeing if I am related to them but people do not realize how the service works. You send in your DNA and they tell you if you have any relatives of people who have already sent in their DNA as well. Continue reading Who is in Your Family Tree?
I knew that there were a few conversations that I had to have with my daughter when she turned eighteen. I wanted to talk to her about money because my dad never talked to me about money. When I went to college, I got every single credit card that I could apply for and I never paid for any of them. I knew that was not a good thing to do but I did it anyways. I talked to my daughter about Parc Esta and all of the different things that I did when I went and got a really nice place there but I did not account for all of my money and I almost got evicted from my very first apartment. It was one of the most embarrassing things that has ever happened to me and I am so sorry that I was going through that at such a young age.
I wish that the current me could go back and tell the old me that everything is going to be OK and you should do this and not that. Continue reading Important Conversations to Have Now
There have always been fads in fashion for as long as people were wearing cloth. Even back in the stone age, people would decorate their garb with different dyes that were made from the berries off of bushes and trees. People would even adorn their garb with different stones and different vines from the earth. I think that there are a lot of sites where people can go online and look at a Harajuku fashion store and see different things that are available to buy online. Continue reading Style is Always on Point
I love music, but I also love to save my money. I don’t mind spending money on an album that I really enjoy, but I don’t want to have to buy an album only to discover that I only like one or two songs on there, or even worse, no songs at all. I knew of an mp3 download site where I would be able to listen to the kind of music that I really enjoy, and that would enable me to find out if I liked a certain album or song enough that I wanted to buy it.
I found the site quite by accident too, but I am so glad that I did. I was just looking for a new song by a singer that I used to really like a lot. I clicked on the first site on the search engine results page, and it took me to the mp3 song download site. Continue reading I Found a Lot of New Music Artists
I am a professor, and I love using modern technology as a teaching aid. I usually have a very small group in each class, which makes it even better because I can personalize and customize the lessons even better. Not long ago, I decided to ask an app developer if it would be affordable for me to have an app created that would be an even better aid in the classroom. Creativity is very important in my class, and I wanted an interactive app where the students would have to rely on one another to get to the end of it.
It is a creative writing app that I had envisioned for a few years, and I finally wanted to see if it could become a reality. It was one where I put in writing prompts, and then I assign sections of it to the students along with a timer. Continue reading An App That Promotes Creativity
Last month, thanks to one of the transport services in Singapore, my friends and I were able to have a great time. We went to Singapore for a trip and wanted to learn a lot about the country. We hired a guide to help us by telling us the best places to go. While we were there, one member of our group decided that it would be a good time to propose to his girlfriend. He had a ring that he bought months ago and wanted to pop the question before we left Singapore. He was waiting for just the right time to do it.
As we went from place to place in Singapore, we were all looking at our friend to see if he was going to propose, but he didn’t yet. Continue reading Waiting for the Magic to Happen
For the longest time, I always had problems with my back. Sometimes, it would feel like a slight pinch to a sharp throbbing pain. It was very bad. Sometimes, I had trouble sleeping and sitting in chairs at my office. I talked with a few doctors about my condition. They all wanted to do surgery on my back. I did not want to go through an operation. I did not have the time to go into a hospital to recover nor the patience. One option that I saw was alternative medicine. A specialist in tcm in Singapore has set up shop as a visiting doctor. I hoped that he could help me with my problem.
The problem started after I stopped playing college football. Continue reading A Search for a Solution
The website https://www.cablehdtvs.com was so helpful for me when we moved my Dad into a assisted living facility. My father was 78 and he was just not able to live in his huge house by himself after Mom died. I know he wanted to but the house would have been way too much for him to keep up with. Men never like to give in so I had to help him find the perfect assisted living facility for him and his dog Beau. Thankfully I found a place that he actually liked, and accepted dogs. Beau was such a good dog I knew my Dad would be happier with him. Continue reading Sports Packages at Such Great Prices
I just decided one day to improve my health and my looks. It was not to compete with the younger girls at work. It was not because of some deep-seated emotions of inadequacy. I was comfortable in my own skin. I was a bit overweight, but I was convinced I looked good. I did not need any external validation of whether I was pretty or not. I decided to lose a little body fat and put on some muscle weight. Muscle looks good, but I did not want to be too angular. I then went to an aesthetic medical clinic to make my skin look great and to sculpt away that little paunch I had just around my belly button.
I am surprised at how fit and toned I have become. Continue reading I Look and Feel Better Than I Ever Have Before
I started to pack up my things around two weeks ago. I got some boxes from the shipping and receiving department every day and filled them up with the things that I knew that I could get along without in my day to day life. Then when I went to see Siahan I took along whatever I could carry. My roommate caught on pretty quickly, but I did not consult him. All of a sudden he stopped being such a jerk, but it was transparently two faced. I have been looking at cleaning services for Singapore already and I think that I am going to be out of here by the end of next month. I could not really blame it all on the other guy, but he is certainly a major factor in my thinking. Continue reading I Am Ready to Move out of Here
