We lived in a nice neighborhood in the Los Angeles area. However, that does not mean anything when it comes to keeping our home safe. It is more than just being concerned about intruders. There is the concern of fire safety and even carbon monoxide gas from the water heater. We have pets that we really care about who are left at home while we work and the kids are in school. We wanted them to have the protection a monitored alarm system from ADT in Los Angeles CA provides.
I think that when people hear anything about an alarm system for their homes that they immediately think about a loud siren that goes off if someone breaks in. That is part of it, but today’s home security systems offer so much more. The number one thing is that our alarm system is monitored by live agents around the clock. If a sensor is tripped, the monitoring agency is notified over the cellular network. Continue reading Cool Features We Enjoy with Our Home Security System
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
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 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
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
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
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
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
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?
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
You have probably heard of something going viral. That is not something you want when it comes to your body, but it is something you want when it comes to social media. Well, as long as what is going viral is not embarrassing. I’ll rephrase that and say you want your good advertising to go viral. However, you cannot run a business waiting for that to happen. You need to generate leads day in and day out. I wondered about using GWAA to get more Instagram followers and likes. It takes a huge exposure on the Internet using social media to generate a decent return.
Acquiring customers is always a big expense for businesses. It is funny, but bad press gets out fast and for free. The good stuff about your business seems to take forever to get out there to the masses. Think about it. Continue reading Getting Massive Gains in Followers and Likes on Instagram
When my son started taking physics in school, he was having a hard time. He came home with bad quiz scores and he wasn’t understanding any of the assignments. The other students were having a tough time too, but he was feeling especially bad about it because he was always used to getting high marks on everything. I didn’t really know much about physics, so there was nothing I could do to help him, but I did have the ability to pay for A level physics tuition. When I told my son that he would he having a tutor, he wasn’t sure about the idea at first.
My son felt that having a tutor would make him look stupid because he would have to resort to help to pass physics. I asked my son to think about whether passing with help or not passing at all was more important to him. His desire to pass above all helped him get on board with the idea of having a tutor. After spending some time with the tutor, my son warmed up to him and was more receptive to his teaching. He began to understand the concepts and could correctly finish his assignments.
In only a short time, my son was able to rise from the depths of failure in physics to the top of the class. He looked forward to seeing the tutor each week, and when the students saw how well he was doing in the class, they wanted my son to help them. Some were even willing to pay him for help. I guess once my son graduates, he could have a lucrative career as a tutor. There are a lot of kids who are more than likely going through the same situation as him and don’t know how to get help.
I felt ashamed that I didn’t realize more quickly that my mom needed my help. She was having trouble financially, but she didn’t say much at first. But when she started speaking up about it, it took many more months for me to realize that I needed to get a job. I saw a job posting for a part time helper for Singapore businesses, and I decided to apply. I needed to do something pretty quickly to bring in some money to help my mother, and I was very lucky that I got hired rather quickly. My mom has done a lot for me, and it’s only fair that I try to help her in return.
I still live at home. I am no lazy deadbeat, though! I am in college. I am going to school on full scholarship, so my mom does not have to help pay for my school. Continue reading Helping My Mother is a Nice Thing to Do in Return for All That She Has Done for Me
I have had my eye set on working in the Central Business District for a while. Because of that, I started looking at different condo developments that are close to it. New Futura is one that is just now being completed, and it is also very close to where I want to work. I decided no time is better than the present, and I had a headhunter help me get the job of my dreams there. I knew I had to make a fast move on it because I wanted to get a condo at New Futura too.
After looking at the development, I knew that it would not take long before all the condos were taken. That is why I had to move fast on this because I knew that living anywhere else would just be settling. That is something that I am not a fan of. I ended up getting a three bedroom condo at New Futura, and it is even better than I could have expected. Continue reading Reaching My Goals with a New Condo
My parents always told me how proud they are of me because I have always done so well in school. When I gained admission to a good university, I found myself floundering with my physics class, though. I was a disappointed in myself and worried that my parents would feel the same way. My mom was the one who told me to stop worrying so much and that she would gladly pay for A level physics tuition at a company that she knows of. She said she knew that I could make it through my class with a little extra help and that I shouldn’t mistakenly assume that every student gets by with no help for at least one of their classes.
My parents have been instrumental with keeping me balanced and focused. Continue reading I’m Just As Proud of My Parents As They Are of Me
It is really hard to be a young women with thinning hair. If anyone would have thought I would have thinning hair in my early 30s when I was younger, they would have been laughed at. The reason for this is because I had such thick hair when I was a kid. It was hard to manage at times because there was just so much of it. It did not matter if I wore my hair long or short, it was just super thick. I finally consulted with an aesthetic doctor because I wanted to find out if there was anything that could be done to get my thickness back at least a little bit.
I used to be able to pull my hair up in a ponytail, and none of my scalp would show. Continue reading I No Longer Need Hair Accessories
You will need Virtual Families 2 money cheats if you wish to make fast progress in this super fun sim type game. I don’t know why they call it a cheat, actually, because in a game like this you can’t really cheat. It’s in the nature of the game, the way it unfolds, that sort of makes it impossible to cheat. All you will accomplish by getting more money is being able to grow your families faster. It means more space, more houses, more pets, and other things that make the game so much fun.

My daughter has been asking me for a new laptop for several months. I have been telling her to ask Santa Claus, but she just rolls her eyes at me when I say that. I guess that might be because she is 14 years old? Anyway, I had already planned on getting her one even before she started asking me, because hers is several years old. I had to use it not long ago, and I even grew frustrated with how slow it is. I know there are going to be some cheap Cyber Monday laptop deals, and I am just biding my time until then. Continue reading The Best Priced Laptop for Cyber Monday
I already knew what I wanted as far as actual apartments in Tallahassee FL. I needed a one bedroom unit that is large enough to where I don’t feel like I am living in a box, but I was not sure what I wanted beyond that. I knew that whatever place I chose would have to allow dogs, because I have two that are family to me. When I came across Parkway Square, I knew that it was everything I could hope for, and then some. First off, the apartment itself is quite spacious.
The apartment I had been living in was barely over 500 square feet, but the one that I moved into at Parkway Square is well over 800 square feet. That is almost twice as much room! Also, they allow dogs, and even have a bark park for them. That is probably my favorite feature of everything, because it means they can both run off leash without me worrying about them getting away since the enclosure protects them both. Continue reading An Apartment for My Dogs and Myself
I was so happy to finally start looking at nicer apartments for rent for Tallahassee FL. When I first moved here, I had just graduated from college and did not have a lot of money. Because of that, I really had to settle for a very small apartment in a section of town that is not the best. I knew that if I worked hard and made good choices, that would not be my life for long, and I was right. I did end up saving for a couple of years so I could pay off some debt, but then I decided it was the right time to finally move into a nicer apartment.
I knew that I was going to look at Tally Square first because it is located just a couple of miles from where I work. I pass it just about every day, and I have always been impressed with how clean it is. Continue reading I Am Much Happier in My New Apartment
When my husband was honorably discharged from the Marines after a lifelong career, we had already fallen in love with living in California where he had been stationed at Camp Pendleton. We knew there was no way we could take the winters of our home state of Iowa again and began to check out luxury apartments in Oceanside CA for a new place to live.
Oceanside offered the very best of both worlds for us. Close enough to the base for my husband to drop by and visit friends and far enough away that we weren’t living in the camouflage world of military housing. Continue reading Finding an Oceanside Apartment for Life out of the Military
I am a pretty quiet person. It is not so much that I am shy though. I just tend to stick to myself, so I wanted to find a place to live that would not have a lot going on there. I prefer quiet areas where there is not a lot of noise, so I did a search for apartments for rent in Colton CA that had positive reviews about the quiet setting of each one. When I looked at The DIstrict, I knew that it was the one that I wanted. It looks very low key but it is extremely modern, making it perfect for me. Continue reading An Apartment That Feels Like Home to Me
Of course I have been looking for my own place for a bit, but the apartments for rent in Mission Viejo that I have found are usually too expensive. If I could find a roommate that probably would be something that I could manage. You usually find that it is not really that much more for a two bedroom apartment than it is for a single bedroom place. Obviously you would be splitting the cost and you would generally end up paying about three fifths as much. Some of the time it is barely more than half as much, but that would be uncommon. If you had a three bedroom place, then you could get an even better bottom line. However the problem is that you can not just go out and pick some random goof off the street corners. The person that you pick needs to be someone who can be trusted. They need to have a job and they need to keep it as long as you require him to pay his share of the rent. Continue reading I Have Been Dog Sitting
It took me decades to do something about the bad marriage that I was in. The older I got, the more uncomfortable I was thinking about spending my remaining years in a bad situation. Age is what made me act to do something about calling a divorce lawyer in Schenectady NY to end my marriage. I had married very young, and I didn’t really know what I wanted back then. I didn’t really know what to look out for and stay away from at that time. Now that I’m older, I know exactly what I want.
I fell in love with my husband when I was only 21 years old. At that age, I didn’t feel like I knew everything there was to know. Continue reading It Took Me a Long Time to Do the Right Thing
