Replacing Lost Paystubs Was Easier Than I Thought

I tear off my paycheck from the paystub and deposit it at my bank. I usually put the stubs above the car’s visor, and they make it into the house to sit on my desk until I eventually file them. However, I do lose some on occasion being lazy about taking them into the house. My kids have used them for writing a note down while in the car, and I heard that one of the kids used one to pick up a little gift our chihuahua left on the backseat floor. I needed a paystub generator to fill in some blank spots for a one month period that was being used to confirm my income. After all, I would not even have attempted to preserve the one used to pick up the dog’s mess even if I could retrieve it from the trash. Needless, to say, I am much more diligent now about filing my paystubs appropriately and promptly. Continue reading Replacing Lost Paystubs Was Easier Than I Thought

The Legion of Long Hair

Being in a home with multiple people who have long hair hasn’t been much of a picnic, especially when I have to clean the bathroom. All of my roommates have hair that goes down to the middle of their backs. They all look like they belong to a rock band. When they bathe, their hair gets stuck in the drain. Normally a little bit of drain cleaner will take care of the hair, but one time the drain became so clogged that we needed professional drain cleaning in Rockland County NY. Continue reading The Legion of Long Hair

Tree Pruning Again for Spring

I am sure glad that winter is over, even if we did not have that bad of a winter by our normal standards. Sometimes I think that I would like to live in a warmer climate, but at the same time, I know I would never go through with it because this is my home. So I am going to check into tree pruning in Queens county, NY as this is the time of year that I usually get this sort of thing done. I know that I am going to get the trees pruned and I also want to do a few other things. Continue reading Tree Pruning Again for Spring

We Outsourced All Our Advertising

My college roommate and I have been best friends for many years. We graduated together and went our own way after college, even though we live in the same city. But we always kept in touch, and it was no surprise when we both shared that we were tired of working for someone else and wanted to partner together on our own business venture. We struggled for awhile, but that changed once we started using Gromode growth marketing to make much more purposeful strides with our company. It has been a long road with our company in general, but we are in it for the long road ahead.

One thing that my business partner and I were not all that good in was getting our business in front of the right people. We are both introverts, and we are not very good with social media, putting on a public face or anything else related to marketing. We had accounts on the most popular social media sites, but we were floundering with our posts. Continue reading We Outsourced All Our Advertising

I Am Now Moving Toward the Goal I’ve Wanted

I learned a big lesson in the past few years in that you can never assume you know exactly where life is taking you. I had no idea that I would ever be living outside my own country, much less running a business. And I learned that opening business in brazil is not all that hard, as long as you get the right help to guide you through the process. Everything has worked out so well, and it had been an interesting ride.

It all started when I went to a Brazil as a young student. My parents sent me there for a 2 month break over the summer. My brother came with me, and we had a lot of fun. We returned a bit wearier, happier and wiser. Continue reading I Am Now Moving Toward the Goal I’ve Wanted

I Lucked out with This Very Helpful Company

As a single mommy to two kids, I am always worried about making ends meet. I have taught my kids that they need to be really good about taking care of things in the house because if something breaks, we may not have the money to fix it. So, it was frustrating when I found out that I needed sewer cleaning in Bronx NY recently. But I knew that I needed to do something because you cannot live in a house with two children and have no running toilets that work properly.

The place that we live in has low rent, but it is very old. That is just one of the reasons that we try to be careful, too. When you have a place made with older materials, they are often more fragile and prone to needing to be replaced. When some things need to be repaired, I can do it myself or I can just leave it be without much trouble. But that is not the case with sewer troubles.

I must have tried about four different brands of drain cleaner that I found at a store nearby. Continue reading I Lucked out with This Very Helpful Company

My Boss Had a Standoff with a Goose

I have just got back from a meeting with my boss. He was really mad and at first I thought that I had done something to cause his bad mood. Of course I am not the one who tried to stop him from getting to his car yesterday evening. That was a male goose or a gander, apparently they are rather territorial and people tell me they are quite mean. At any rate he wants me to figure out who does a good job of Canada geese control in NJ. Obviously this is not the usual request, but I looked around and I found some guy who was willing to do the job. I was wondering how you did it really and how you keep the geese from coming back. I am sure that you could kill them or at least fire off a gun at them, but neither of those things is legal at our street address. I guess that you could shoot the geese if it was in hunting season, but not around here. Continue reading My Boss Had a Standoff with a Goose

I No Longer Have an Ant Problem

When I found an ant on my kitchen counter at home, I did not think much about it. I just took care of it on my own, thinking it was a one time deal. That was not the case though, and I learned why after I had to contact an exterminator in NYC to help me with the ant problem that was getting worse by the day. He told me that when a single ant walks, he leaves a scent for other ants to follow when he finds food. Even though I live in an apartment, they are still able to find their way in because of that scent that is left by the one ant.

I learned more about ants than I ever thought I would know because of this ordeal. They are fascinating insects once you learn about them, and extremely resilient in their desire to live and contribute to their colonies. I just could not have them living with me, which is why I contacted the exterminator to come help me. Continue reading I No Longer Have an Ant Problem

Custom Mirror Lights Up Reflections So You Can See What You Are Doing

Every remodeling job is a custom job. No two rooms are exactly the same. Sure, we are all probably buying similar cabinet brands and tile products, but it is how we put them together to make a room that makes it uniquely ours. Our new bathroom came with a custom built large vanity and granite countertop with undermount sinks. One for him and one for me. Mornings are busy. We topped it of with a mirror we got from a place that builds custom mirrors in Brooklyn. It is stunningly beautiful with its lighted frame.

There was nothing like it available on the market. All we could find was basic glass mirrors in pretty basic frames. We could pick off the rack with wood, steel or plastic frames. Our custom mirror frame comes with its own built in LED lighting. It lights up our faces nicely. My husband, ever the comedian, says it is so much easier now to see those nose hairs needing trimmed. I told him I didn’t think it was a problem for him before. He says that he was not talking about himself. That was when I punched him on the arm.

Don’t Fear Challenging Your Body

Shamrock Shake Shakeology recipe protein shake mcdonalds www ...Exercises have an impressive affect on body shape and your appearance (as this best Shakeology review site will show you). Consistent training helps you lose body fat by building muscle mass. With more muscle mass, your metabolism is more efficient, you burn more calories and more body fat.

Repeating the exercises will over time resulting in increased muscle mass. Using free weights, such as dumb bells, is a great way to add to your routine. Continue reading Don’t Fear Challenging Your Body

I Didn’t Want to Lose My Channels

I watch a lot of TV, but I actually only have a few favorite TV shows. Most of what I watch, I can take it or leave it. Those few shows are the only reason why I have a subscription to programming. When my local cable company got into a negotiation with one of the channels that airs two of my favorite shows, I got concerned when they said that there could be a blackout. I wanted to get some channel information from a satellite television provider because I had heard that they were not having the same problems that the cable company was having.

We Picked Doerman Photography for Our Daughter’s Wedding

Nothing like a southern wedding. No, I’m not talking about shotgun weddings. Our daughter met the man of her dreams a few years ago, and they got married recently. It was hectic, to say the least, planning the wedding. Like most of the weddings in our area, it was an outdoor wedding with an outdoor reception. Well, we had some tents set up for dinner but no reception hall was rented. You have the weather and everything else to worry about with weddings like this. We used Doerman Photography to not have to worry about the pictures.

Our daughter actually left picking the photographer to me, her dad. Of all people, she figured I would have the best shot of picking a really good wedding photographer. That is because I am also a photographer. Why didn’t I photograph her wedding? Well, I was in it for one, and I would not touch wedding photography with the proverbial ten foot pole! I will stick to my landscapes, nature and still like photography thank you. Weddings have one thing in common. That is, a nervous bride and a cranky mom. Continue reading We Picked Doerman Photography for Our Daughter’s Wedding

We Use Our Large Glass Shower Enclosure to Bath Our Big Dogs Too

We went to those home supply centers that have examples of their products set up. We found a beautiful Italian tile for the bathroom that was on sale for a low price. We figured we would tile the floors and halfway up the walls with a matching tile. I liked the light color with the dark streaks. We looked at shower stalls but could not find something big and nice. We decided to choose from a place that does glass shower enclosures in Essex County NJ. It was a good decision. Instead of a closed in shower stall that has limited room, we had a custom shower built that is big enough to fit me, my wife and our three dogs. Not that we shower with the dogs. I’m just saying it to give an idea of how big the shower is.

I like everything about the new shower. It lets the light in, it is big enough to be able to enjoy a high-flow rainfall type shower head. Continue reading We Use Our Large Glass Shower Enclosure to Bath Our Big Dogs Too

Working on the House Again

We are going to try to get the house ready to move in before Winter. The location is really perfect for us. It is within walking distance of my office and it is going to be easier for me to walk to work than it would be to find a parking space on many days. It is like that most days. The guy across the street is a roofing contractor in Manhattan NY and he has a lot of guys coming in and out. They always manage to snag the good spaces and it is a pain for me to find one. There are places where you can rent spaces near the office, but they are all completely unreasonable about it. You are better off walking to work if it is a possibility.

In fact I could probably rent out the extra space in my drive way for a small fortune if i wanted to do it. Continue reading Working on the House Again

It is All About the Placement

My dad told me when I was younger that it is all about the placement when you go to take high school classes. You have to make sure that you spend time with the different people that will help you get good grades and then you will have good influences at school. When you are in high school the type of classes that you take will determine what type of college you go to. I knew that I had to go and look at to see what different high school level classes were offered at some of the private schools in my area. Continue reading It is All About the Placement

Getting Energy Back with Muscle ZX90

While I have always placed an emphasis on staying in shape, I recently had difficulty with maintaining a high energy level.

Using Foreclosures in NYC to Your Advantage

We searched the listings high and low for homes that met our criteria. We had a good down payment, but the costs for the homes being sold by owners were just a bit too much for what we wanted to have in a mortgage every month. You do not want to end up loan poor where you are struggling to pay debt every month. We decided to check out foreclosures in NYC. Sometimes you can motivate a bank or owner to sell at a tremendous gain to you. There are short sales and other options for you.

We monitored what was being foreclosed. Only a few of the homes met our criteria of a place we wanted to move into. We wanted something that was move-in ready to further reduce our expenses. In other words, our plan was to buy cheap and live in the house as is for five years until we built up some more cash. Instead of buying a lesser home at full price, we used foreclosures in NYC as leverage to get a better house in a better neighborhood for a lower cost.

People buy more than they can afford all of the time. Then they end up abandoning the home. Then the banks have a long foreclosure process you can sometimes speed up. You can even get liens removed if you are savvy. Yes, some people lost their homes due to health and tragedy. We were diligent to not go after those homes. We went after ones where it was obvious the people bought more than they could afford. This way there was not that guilt factor of using the system to get the banks or owners to sell at a loss to them. We ended up with a home that only cost us the rest of the bank loan that was due. We got a house worth more than what we could have afforded if we would have paid full price.

Course Search for a New Career

I am not sure what I want to do with my life, but I really want to be somebody, to have a good life, and a good job. I want to make a lot of money as well, and I have no idea if that will work out for me or not. But I should at least try to make it be the case. I am checking out Tafe course search to try to figure out some courses that could help me to find a good job some time down the road.

I do not have a very good job right now, and I do not expect that I will stay with this company for very much longer. It is not that they do not pay me well, because they do pay me well enough, but rather the problem is that I do not enjoy my work, and that is a big problem for me. I wake up every day in the morning, dreading the fact that I am going to have to go to work. I wish that I had better co-workers, or something, to make my job more lively.

I am not sure what I want to do with my life, and that is one of the biggest factors that causes me problems when it comes to figuring out the ideal career for myself. I have thought of a lot of things, imagined myself in a lot of different jobs, but I have not figured out one that would just be perfect for me. I know that I am not likely to actually find the perfect job, but at least I can try. I am going to try as hard as I can, and maybe I will be one of the lucky few that actually manage to find their calling in life.

Energy Information and Energy Rights

It is still a couple of months away, but I want to learn as much as I can, in advance, so I do not find myself struggling to get everything done at the last minute. That is often the case when it comes to moving, but hopefully things will go better this time around. I want to find some info to help me know your energy rights when it comes to choosing an electricity company in Texas. It is my understanding that there are numerous electricity companies in the state too choose from, and that seems a bit unusual to me, but it is kind of cool at the same time. I bet that since that is competition Go To This Page

Perfect for the Retired Golfing Fanatic

The bad thing about retiring is you don't have the money to play golf all the time. The equipment and the clothing costs too much. Thank goodness my wife invested some of our funds in discount Ogio mens golf shirts in order for me to still hit the links. Everyone goes on and on about how retiring means you can spend virtually all of your time on the course having fun with your friends and family. Without discount attire, however, such a thing wasn't possible for me. I didn't have what you would call a high paying job for most of my life, so my savings don't allow me to splurge on high priced Go To This Page
