It was not really my idea. My friend has been chasing this girl for months and she has been playing really hard to get. I can not say that I blame her to be honest. At last she agreed, but only if it was a double date with her friend. He had to find a date for her, so I figured she would not be a prize. However she was quite cute, although her personality was a bit off putting. She told me that she worked at a place that does eyebrow embroidery in Singapore and that confused me a great deal. I guess that it can mean a few different things, different cosmetic procedures that are supposed to enhance the look of the eyebrow. Continue reading Went out on a Blind Date
My brother in law worked in home construction for maybe 20 years, before he decided that he was getting too old for it and found a different career. But he still has a lot of the skills, and so I am going to use his expertise to help me do some DIY projects at my house without having to hire any contractors for the work. I should stand to save a lot this way and I am going to try to purchase some fiber underlayment to use to put under some new flooring we are going to put in the house.
I was at a hardware store and they did not have the type of underlayment that my brother in law recommended we use, and so I decided I would probably have better luck trying to order it off of the internet. At least, that way I know I can find a place that has it, and hopefully I will also be able to find it for a good price. Continue reading Best Fiber Underlayment for Flooring
I just found a better apartment to live in, and I would like to move there pretty soon, but I have the problem of having to move all of my stuff there, and so that is something I have to sort out. I either have to find some friends to help me, or hire someone to do it for me. I think that the latter option might be better and so I want to look up prices for house movers in Singapore to see how much they tend to charge for moving jobs.
I am sure of one thing, and that is that I am not going to be moving all of my stuff out of my apartment, and into my new apartment all by myself. Continue reading Pro Moving Companies in Singapore
We have two children. Both of them are highly interested in music. They listen to contemporary music, but they also have a strong interest in world music. They have been learning music history on their own, and they have been keeping up with their musical instrument lessons that we have been paying for. When they both approached us about attending a music school in Singapore, we really had no hesitation in signing them up. We knew that the careers of both of them would have something to do with music. We just did not know exactly what those careers would be.
Our son is a powerful lyric and music writer. He wrote songs from an early age that sounded just as good as hit songs on the radio. Continue reading Helping Your Children Learn to Make a Career in Music
I am trying to move to New Zealand, and I am trying to learn more about how to do so on a permanent basis. I really love the country and it is one of the most beautiful places that I have ever visited in my life. I have always wanted to live there, ever since I went with my parents as a young child, and I think that trip really made an impression on me. I am trying to learn how to obtain New Zealand PR status, so that I can stay there for the rest of my life. That would really make me happy, and it would be a lot better than living in my current country.
I am really not very happy with recent events with regards to how the government is ran in my country. Continue reading How to Become New Zealand Permanent Resident
As a beginner aviator, I tried making my own ADS-B antenna, but the results weren’t exactly what I would call stellar. The antenna only had a short range and it was more trouble than it was worth to build the whole thing. The only advantage that came from it was that it wasn’t as expensive as some of the models that are pre built. I went back to the drawing board and looked for a better solution that would give me the range I needed for an affordable price. I did some searching and found an antenna online for a pretty reasonable price.
Installation of the new antenna was simple, even more so than building one from scratch. Continue reading Great Antenna Range for a Great Price
The building that my company is in is right in front of a creek. I never gave that creek much consideration since it was in the back of the building and I never had to see it unless I was out back, which was not very often. It wasn’t even a huge creek, and I could have stepped over it with a huge leap probably. Anyway, during a really bad storm, this creek ended up flooding the building. When I saw the mess from it the following morning, I did a search for water damage in Charlotte. Continue reading A Small Creek Caused Major Flooding
So I have been working with this guy and I have sort of gotten to know him, but like everyone else I know that he is a jerk. I caught him at this thing, which he is using to mess with the less intelligent members of the staff. He has apparently found some sort of online fake paystub generator and used it to duplicate the paystubs that we have, albeit not that well. I saw it and I could rather easily tell that it was not legit. It did not fool half of the people that he tried it on. For some reason he was trying to convince us all that he was making a lot more money than the rest of it. Continue reading There is This Strange Guy at Work
My daughter is part of a group that helps at risk children. She is a social worker, but the group is comprised of doctors, nurses, teachers, clergy, volunteers and others. They all contribute what they can, whether it is time, talent or money, all to make life better for children who need help. They have a website, and recently they decided to hire a video production company in Singapore to create a moving video that would explain to people not involved exactly what they are doing. They looked over quite a few different companies, but Big 3 Media is the one that stood out to them.
They were able to see other videos that this company has created, and their work really spoke volumes about the talent and creativity that the staff possesses. This was really needed because while there was a lot of talent in my daughter’s group, she told me that none of them had what was needed to create a compelling video. Continue reading This Video Shows Their Story
We have a room in our house that kind of resembles an old general store. The house used to be a store, so there is a big front window that used to be used for displaying things. Now it is our living room. We have cleared it and converted it into the look of an old store. My favorite items are the old cash register and produce scale. I work for a company that makes shear beam load cells and other components for modern scales. The new technology of load cells is amazing. We make metal devices that are compressed or bent under the strain of weight. The stresses make an electrical signal that is converted into highly accurate weights or forces being exerted on the cells. Continue reading I Work in High-ech and Preserve Old Technology at Home
When my son told me that he wanted a camo gun, I thought that he meant a brand new gun. He had to laugh at me, and even called me a girl, but I took no offense since I am his mother. He told me that he meant he wanted a camo gun kit for his existing gun. I didn’t even know something like that existed. He showed me the website where he found quite a few different kits that transforms a regular gun into a came gun. The more I read about it, the more I knew that he would really like it.
See, it is just my son and I. We have been a team for most of his life, when his father walked out on us. It has been hard trying to be both Mom and Dad to him, but he says I have been doing a good job. That is because I allow him to have his guns, his band, and most other things, as long as he respects my rules, which he always does. Continue reading A Camo Kit for His Birthday
I live in Florida and to me, this is paradise! I also love waking up to the birds chirping and the sun gleaming through my window. The Marq Tampa Florida Apartments are stylish, contemporary and comfortable. Living in a safe neighborhood is important to me and I love the surrounding area of these apartments. Everything is available right at your fingertips in Westchase. When looking for a place to kick my feet up, I think of three things: quiet, spacious and cozy. I want to be able to pick up my favorite book, make a cup of tea and just relax.
This location has studios, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments. There are many floor plans to choose from and the Aura is my absolute favorite. It does not matter how old you are. I think I can speak for everyone when I say that being comfortable is one of everyones’ priority when finding a place to live. Continue reading Living in Style & Comfort
My little nephews are some of the most adorable kids on the planet, but they are too wild during playtime. While my brother was out of town for the weekend on a business trip, I agreed to watch them. They played all over the house with their markers and finger paints. Once the weekend was over, my house was full of stains. My brother agreed to pay for any cleaning that needed to be done. I called up a service that does house cleaning in Tampa Fl to restore my house back to the state it was before the kids took over.
The cleaning crew saw all of the stains and tracks all over my home and instantly knew that kids had done it. One of the members of the cleaning crew had kids of his own, and they like to make messes when there isn’t anyone around. This is one of the reasons why I’m not in any kind of a hurry to have children. I love kids, and they’re fun, but they make too much of a mess for me to deal with right now. Maybe a couple of years down the road when I have the patience to deal with them, I’ll think about having kids.
It wasn’t much work for the crew to clean my home. They had special tools that made the job go by faster. I talked to my brother and told him that the next time he wants to have his kids stay over at my home, there needs to be some ground rules so something like last time’s incident won’t happen again. I told my brother that he needs to tell his kids not to play everywhere and that they should respect other people’s property. He gave the kids a hard discussion about their behavior.
I decided to do some new landscaping in my yard. I am one of the rare people who owns more than just a postage stamp sized plot of land. I have nearly two acres on the outskirts of the Bronx, and I decided to put in a walkway as well as a patio. I wanted to make the yard look nicer for the times when I do have get togethers with family and friends. I knew I could do a lot of the work myself, but I did need to find qualified sidewalk contractors in Bronx NY to do the patio and walkways.
I was going to tend to the plants and shrubbery myself, and I also knew that I could put in my own flower gardens and fences. I had never attempted anything like sidewalks though, and I knew I was not going to start trying now. Continue reading They Made My Property Look Great
After living most of my life in one of the largest cities in the country, I am very watchful when it comes to security and safety. Friends from small towns find it odd when they come to visit and I tell them to keep my home’s door locked at all times. I also tell them to be aware of their surroundings, too. When my hubby said we were moving to Delaware, he pointed out that we could get Delware ADT if I really wanted it. But he also pointed out that the state has a small population, and the city we would be living in there would not have the high crime that the large city we lived in for so long has had.
I pondered what my husband had told me. We were told we would need to pay all of our own moving costs, so we really needed to save money. Not only that, I was giving up my job and would need to find a new one once we settled in. That means that even less money would be coming in for awhile. Continue reading No Matter Where You Live, Security is Important
Prices keep going up for everything. What did you start doing when the gas prices went up? Remember when it was costing a small fortune to fill up the tank? I bet you looked around town for the lowest price you could get on gas. The same thing goes for other stuff as well. We got a better price on the programming that comes into the three television sets in our house. We were paying too much for cable so we switched to satellite so we could view more at a lower price. Hey, as some companies raise their prices, I just go with the ones that offer me more for a better cost.
I asked the cable company if they could give me a box that would let me record more than two things at a time. Continue reading With Satellite TV You Can View More and Do More but Not Pay More
It was probably 90 degrees out and I was trying to do a few chores outside around the house. I walked by the electric meter on the house and could hear a faint buzz. I walked up to it and the dial was spinning fast. I went in the house and the AC was running, a bunch of lights were on, TVs were going and someone had the stereo and TV going in the living room. Our electricity usage and bill was out of control. We did two things. We called Reliant Energy in Killeen to get a lower monthly rate on electricity, and we started to bring the kids into compliance of using less.
I grew up in a house where my dad was always on us about wasting electricity, gas and water in the house. Continue reading Saving Money on Electricity and Being More Socially Responsible
I am moving to Texas in the near future, because I finally got a job offer at this company I have been trying to get a job at for years. I was actually about to give up when they finally offered me a job. Kind of incredible really, and I am glad that it worked out. But I am a bit confused about electricity in Texas and all of the different companies, so I have been reading http://choosetexaspower.org/energy-rights.html and trying to get a better grasp as to what my rights are as an electricity customer in the state of Texas, as well as all of the companies that I will get to choose from when I pick my power provider going forward.
I am not going to be moving for another few weeks, but I would like to stay on top of things, and make sure that all of the things related to getting a new place do not pile up on me. After all, moving is a big deal and it takes a lot of effort, and a lot of planning as well. To be honest, I am not looking forward to it, but I guess that it could be worse. Anyway, I am going to check into the different electricity companies, see what their prices are, and see if there are any other things that I should take into consideration when it comes to choosing one of these companies to provide me with power. Of course, I want to make an informed decision, but at the same thing, there are a lot of other things that I need to attend to, so it is my hope that i will not spend too much time on this matter, and that I will come to a decision without a whole lot of deliberation.
I was not sure this was going to work at first, but so far it has been pretty good. The other guys wanted me in on this deal because they needed me to help them to fix this place up. It works like this, the one guy inherited this big old house from his grand dad. It is not quite a mansion, but half a dozen people can live in this place without really getting in one another’s way. It has a satellite dish with and there is Directv on demand from a whole house DVR. It has about five different satellite boxes, so we all got our TVs in our own rooms, and there is another one in the living room. Of course this place has at least a thousand and one things that needs to be done to it. The other guys are paying rent, but for now I am paying with my skills.
The place has three bathrooms, but these were built in the pre history of plumbing. That is a bit of a joke, but it is not really that funny. We are starting out with the main one which is seeing the most use. Obviously it is the one nearest the living room and the lower level bedrooms. I am going to do it this weekend and I am going to hope that those guys can help me out to some extent, but it is not something I am pinning my hopes and dreams to. After that I move up to the second story where they have two bathrooms. One of them is in really bad shape, so it is going to be done first. After I finish with all three bathrooms the kitchen needs to be done, but that is going to be expensive and might not be soon.
I have started thinking about whether or not I want to buy this nice little place in Midland TX. It is something that I always wanted, some people around here call it a cowboy starter, which means that it is big enough so that you could put a house and a horse lot on it. This is not quite five acres and there is a little pond on it that is probably around a third of an acre. The guy told me that it had a lot of fish in it, but I did not check. I went to http://www.texasenergycompanies.net/txu-energy-texas/m/midland.html and figured out who supplied the power. Continue reading Looking at a Little Place in Midland
