They Just Don’t Understand Technology

My father finally decided to do something about his back pain, so he enlisted my help in finding a chiropractor for treatment. I told him to do a quick search online so that I could help him pick one. There were so many Sacramento chiropractors to choose from that my father just threw his hands in the air and completely gave up. This tends to happen a lot with him and technology. Once we were trying to book a flight online and he just became overwhelmed by all of the information on the web pages.

Since my father had essentially tapped out, I took over and used the computer to find a chiropractor that I thought would be good for him. Continue reading They Just Don’t Understand Technology

A Friend, My Parents and My Teachers Helped Me to See What’s Possible

I was really excited about the life one of my friends lived in the big city when I went to visit him. I wanted to live in the same city, but didn’t know if it was possible. I helped my friend move into a new place, and I got to see some of the luxury apartments in Atlanta Buckhead where he moved to because he took me on a tour. He told me that if I worked hard, I could move there one day, too. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to live there exactly, but I knew that if I wanted a better life, I really did need to move to a large city where there were lots of options to choose from.

I was always a nerd in high school, but I didn’t really apply myself for the first couple of years of high school. Continue reading A Friend, My Parents and My Teachers Helped Me to See What’s Possible

I Don’t Want to Live Anywhere else

I knew that I was going to look at luxury apartments for Atlanta GA, and I was thrilled to see that there were several for me to choose from. I was not worried so much with the location for work or anything, as I know that is a huge consideration for a lot of people. I used to be the same way, but I am a telecommuter now. That has made life so much nicer for me, and I love working from home. It has also been very profitable for me, which should be obvious since I am moving up to a much nicer apartment.

What I mainly wanted was a nice apartment that made me feel really good inside of it. I have lived in a couple of dumps, but most of my former rental houses or apartments have been on the average side. Continue reading I Don’t Want to Live Anywhere else

A Party Bus for Her Wedding

When I was looking around online for a place to rent a limo for my daughter’s wedding, I came across an – limo rental article that really spoke to me. I am a single mother who has raised four children, so I really like it when I see other women succeeding in business, just like I did so I could give my children the life I felt and still feel that they deserve. When I saw this page and started reading about how this woman helped build this limo company, I knew that it was the company I wanted to use.

The first thing I did was go to the website of this company so I could see the fleet that they have. In the article I read, she discussed the different types of vehicles, like the Humvee limos, the party buses, the stretch limos and more. Continue reading A Party Bus for Her Wedding

Learning About a Painful Secret

I consider myself to be a trusting person, and that can be my strength as well as my weakness. I thought my former girlfriend and I had a great relationship, but she had been cheating on me. I didn’t suspect a thing until someone told me that my girlfriend had a secret Instagram account and she was posting pictures and videos of her kissing some guy. I didn’t believe it at first, but I started to notice things that would make me think otherwise. I had to see for myself, so I used an Insta hack to gain access to the account, and that’s when everything came crashing down.

What I was told was indeed true. Continue reading Learning About a Painful Secret

I Bought Breast Enhancement Cream Because It Works

I did not want to encourage my sister when she decided to purchase some breast cream to help her grow bigger breasts. I honestly did not think anything like that would work, so I was surprised when I saw her a few months later and saw that her breasts actually were larger. I was beyond surprised actually. Neither of us were blessed with large breasts, or even medium sized ones, but only one of us had accepted that this was the way it had to be. I am so glad she did not listen to me in the past, because then neither one of us would have known about this.

I wanted to look at the same website where she got all her information. Continue reading I Bought Breast Enhancement Cream Because It Works

Stuck Damper Made Our HVAC System Start Whistling a Tune

Our furnace started to whistle. Not a tune, but just a steady whistle when the blower came on. It kind of wavered in pitch a bit, but it was not going to win any contests for being a catchy tune. It was rather quite annoying. We could hear it all over the house, but it was louder in the bathroom downstairs. I called a Sacramento HVAC specialist to come out and take a look. We had not been keeping up with our annual furnace cleanings and inspections. I have been keeping the filters changed and the electrostatic filter clean. It sounded like the whistling was in the ductwork. Continue reading Stuck Damper Made Our HVAC System Start Whistling a Tune

Signing Up with the Right Energy Provider

When I was confused about which electricity company to use for my new home in Texas, a good friend of mine who lives there sent me a link. It was actually what I needed, but I had no idea that something like it existed. The thing about Texas is that it is deregulated when it comes to energy providers, so anyone who needs to get electricity into their house actually has a wide variety of choices. Sometimes, that is a good thing, but I was overwhelmed with it until my friend shared that website link with me.

When I went there, it was organized perfectly. All I had to do was put my zip code in so the site could list the companies that are able to service my area. Even though we are deregulated here in Texas, not every company that provides energy is able to serve every community. After I put my location information in, I was given access to the different companies that do provide energy to my neighborhood. I was able to get a wealth of information from each of them too, just from this site. Continue reading Signing Up with the Right Energy Provider

A Shed Made of Scrap Metal

Earlier in the year, I came up with some plans to build a new shed after my old one fell apart. The shed had become rusty and once the roof caved in due to plant debris, the whole thing started to collapse. Initially I was just going to buy a shed from the store and put it together, but the prices were too expensive. After making the plans, I looked at the scrap metal prices and bought some pieces in the dimensions I needed to build the shed. The shed is mostly made of metal, but it features a wooden base held in place by concrete, along with wooden frames for support.

Putting together the shed was a pretty easy job. I had all of the wood pre-cut at the hardware store, so I didn’t have to worry about dealing with any heavy and expensive saws. Continue reading A Shed Made of Scrap Metal

My Boss Wanted to Plant Some Trees

I was not surprised to find out that the lot my boss had just purchased needed a lot of work. He just wanted a large space where he could build his offices and warehouse, which is exactly what he did. When he was done though, even he had to admit that it looked really bland. He knew that first impressions matter, so he asked me to contact a tree service in Nassau County to plant some trees around the buildings and along the driveway. I was really happy that he was going to contract this out, because something of this scale is best left to the professionals. Continue reading My Boss Wanted to Plant Some Trees

Started on a New Project

The boss and I did an inspection yesterday and started to think about how logical it is going to be to work on this brownstone that he wants to buy. Of course the building is really pretty old and the last owner has not been doing very much to keep it up. I spent the day with this guy I know who provides hvac services in NYC and he gave me a quote that makes a bit of sense for us, although it is sort of on the margins of what we were hoping. Obviously any time you get a quote on a job you are going to want to have it be less, but this is something that can be worked around. You just have to accept that the other guy needs to make money or it does not make any sense for him to work for you. We are certainly going in this with the intent of making a profit for ourselves.

I am probably going to get a place set up where I can lay down and sleep. Continue reading Started on a New Project

I Wanted to Be in the Music Business

I love everything about music, which is kind of ironic since I cannot carry a tune. That did not stop me from doing everything I could to have a career in music though. Granted, singers do need to have amazing vocals, which is a mix of pitch, harmony and other traits, to go anywhere in a musical career. But, they do not get to the top on their own. They need others who understand music to get to where they are, and that is why I decided early on to go to music school.

I was not going so I could learn how to carry a tune or sing in the right pitch. Continue reading I Wanted to Be in the Music Business

It is Nice to Have a Simple Helper Tool That Keeps Me Aware

Twenty two years ago, I was married very young and was pretty naive about the world. I had my head in the clouds and did not think much about the fact that you may not be married to the same person for the rest of your life. I was a romantic, and I thought it was that way for everyone. But then I learned that my husband was cheating on me, and was soon alone and single. Now, that I am married again, I am far more savvy about things. To illustrate, I use snap spy app to keep tabs on my hubby with one of the programs he uses often.

I have no intention of making my husband uncomfortable. He has no idea that I use the program, and he really doesn’t need to. But I have children from my previous marriage, and I have a lot of assets of my own that I brought to this new relationship. Continue reading It is Nice to Have a Simple Helper Tool That Keeps Me Aware

Helping Those Who Gave Their All

When people hear about veterans charitable organizations, I wonder how many are thinking of the men and women who come back with physical wounds. They definitely need our help and support. After all, they were overseas fighting for our freedom, so we need to do all we can to show them our gratitude. However, most of the wounded who come home are hiding their scars inside them. Think about it. These men and women have seen things that we cannot even imagine. We have all seen war scenes on TV programs and movies, but those are fictional accounts.

The real deal is much worse. I know because I have served overseas and seen some of these atrocities myself. Thankfully, I am a Christian, and I have been able to rely on my faith to get me past the horrid memories of what we saw over there. There are so many people who don’t have that luxury though. Continue reading Helping Those Who Gave Their All

Why Buy when You Can Rent Like This?

The Marq in Tampa Florida is the new standard for apartment communities. No longer are apartment communities just a barren piece of land filled with boxes that people live in, now they really live up to their name as apartment communities. Before a developer would buy whatever land he could and build as many box style cookie cutter apartments they could to fill the property, they called it a community but that was the loosest definition possible. You’d be lucky if there was a shopping center nearby or a 7/11 on the corner. Continue reading Why Buy when You Can Rent Like This?

Started My New Job at the Hotel

So I just started on my job and it seems that I am on bed bug patrol at this hotel. The manager taught me how to figure out if there are bed bugs in a room and so they send me in the room as soon as one of the guests leaves. The fact is that just about every person who checks in could be bring bed bugs in their luggage. You do not want to wait until you have a full blown epidemic. Of course we pay for bed bug removal services and that is who you call if the room has bed bugs. Continue reading Started My New Job at the Hotel

I Am Happy with My Carpet and the Great Cleaning I Just Had Done

For many years, I have lived in an older house that belonged to my grandparents. When they passed on, it was given to me. Much of the home is carpeted. My neighbors told me I should check out – Ottawa Carpet Cleaning Service in order to get some help with the carpeting. First, let me say that I just love wood floors. And it has always been my dream to have a house that has it all throughout. So, I went down to the nearest store that sells it to check out pricing. I had no idea that real wood floors are so expensive. Having them installed is just not something that is in my budget right now.

Next, I went to quite a few carpet stores to find out about getting what I have now replaced. I found so many beautiful colors and textures that are available today. I knew that it would not be cheap, but once again, I found out that the cost of buying the carpet and having it installed was out of my budget.

I have a lot of other important things to pay for maintenance wise in this new home of mine, and completely replacing the flooring was out of the question. It was then that I realized that I should simply look into having the carpeting cleaned as well as it could be. Because it is old carpeting, I did not know just how much help experts could provide or not.

A quick phone call is all it took to make an appointment. The employees who came to do the work helped me understand that thorough washing on a continued schedule can help what I have now looking better longer, and it will help keep the air in my home cleaner, too. They did a fantastic job and the carpet looks brand new again!

I Am Still Moving My Stuff

Of course a lot of the things I had were not really worth the effort, so that stuff I gave away or I left it on the curb for anyone that wanted it. I ordered some new stuff from a place called New Futura in singapore and that was a lot easier for me since they were happy to put it in a truck and bring it to my new place. In fact I just had to set a time and they rang the bell and sat it all down where I told them to. Of course I am on the 13th floor of a big building and so that makes it pretty tough to move big stuff. I went to that over the weekend and a lot of people were not too happy with me. I had to wait to find an empty elevator and then people would stop us on their floor and find out that I was in there with my buddy and a big load of my stuff, so there was not any room for them.

One time we almost had some of my stuff take off without me. Continue reading I Am Still Moving My Stuff

A Natural Way to Increase Your Bust

I was skeptical when a friend had me check out because I just assumed there is not possible way you can increase your bust size with natural supplements and an ointment. I did want to increase my bust size, however, because I inherited a very small chest from my mother and her side of the family. My father’s side, mostly my aunts and his mother, had no problems whatsoever in this area. It seems I played the genetic lottery and lost big time. I needed some help, however, because I wasn’t about to go through life with a small chest.

My problem is that it would take a long, long time to save up for plastic surgery. I was willing to make the sacrifices, and even get another job to earn money for the surgery, but I wasn’t sure about doing so. I think it is because I feared having the operation. I have seen pictures of mangled breast augmentations, and I worried I might not pick the right doctor to do the job. After hearing my concerns, my friend directed me to the site mentioned above. To say I was apprehensive would be an understatement.

But hey I’m up for anything, really, and I liked the idea of finding a natural solution to this problem. It is always best to go the natural route first because it just might work. I got the supplements and cream and followed the directions and I must say I do believe I’ve seen a moderate increase in my breast size. It is more noticeable in profile, I think, and no one has said anything, but I do believe it worked. Is it a dramatic increase of the type you would see after having implants put in? No, but it sure seems safer than being cut open.

How We Interact with Unique Data

Developing applications for mobile devices is not exactly a walk in the park these days. There is a diverse variety of considerations that need to be taken into consideration before you simply throw an app up into the Google Play Store and call it done. With the way we are experiences the multitude of environments across a huge number of mobile and tablet devices, it becomes important for every application to be able to operate on each and every single one of them. I found that the company Massive Infinity is one of the best at being able to provide this service.

Having an application is like the new method when it comes to developing a website. A website isn’t exactly necessary any longer. Continue reading How We Interact with Unique Data

Texting and Driving Can Ruin Lives

I was upset when I found out that the person who had hit my husband’s car and caused him a lot of pain was texting while he was driving. It was for a commercial vehicle too, which made it even worse because they are supposed to be professionally trained drivers. My husband nearly lost his life because of this, and I had a very hard time understanding how someone could be so careless. Even worse, there was no remorse shown. I knew that we needed to find an auto accident attorney in Sacramento who would take on our case because we definitely needed someone who knew a lot more about the law than we did. Continue reading Texting and Driving Can Ruin Lives

Taking Control of My Vehicle’s OBD and ECU to Tweak Field Performance

I have a special SUV I use as a geologist. I work for energy exploration companies as a subcontractor. Therefore, I provide my own equipment. I can be out in the middle of nowhere for days in my SUV. It even has an elevated platform I can set up a tent on. In order to make it perform like I want in the field, I use VagCom OBD and ECU software along with a fully functional connection cable to adjust engine and transmission performance. I need to have one set of parameters for driving on the paved roads, and another set for when I am off road. This is especially true if I am in very high elevations.

I just have the software on my laptop, and I make the adjustments as they are needed. I have learned a lot about vehicles since I was a kid. I use the knowledge to get me and my vehicle into places other geologists just fly over or look at satellite images to make decisions. Continue reading Taking Control of My Vehicle’s OBD and ECU to Tweak Field Performance

I Used an App That Really Helped Me Fix My Marriage

It was shocking to me to see that my marriage was falling apart. My husband and I had been so in love prior to the two of us having three children together. At some point, he began withdrawing from me and would not talk to me when I tried to understand what was going on. He was spending a lot of time chatting to a variety of people online. But with a password on his account, I couldn’t look. I found a Kik spy program that helped me to get around it. It was the only way that I could figure out what on earth was happening.

My hubby and I spent so much time with one another over the years before we had any children. But as everyone knows, having children can take up all of your time. Continue reading I Used an App That Really Helped Me Fix My Marriage
