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.

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”

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”

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. Continue reading “Using Foreclosures in NYC to Your Advantage”

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. Continue reading “Course Search for a New Career”

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 among the electricity companies that the prices for electricity are cheaper than they are in other parts of the country. At least that would only make sense to me. I am sure that they have no problem generating electricity in Texas, because of all of the oil and stuff nearby. Although, I don’t really know that electricity is generated with oil all that much. Of course, gasoline, which is distilled from petroleum, is used in generators, which did produce electricity.

I am sure that there are also generators that run off of different types of petroleum distillates, but I don’t really know which ones. But anyway, that is kind of aside from the point. It does not matter to me how they generate their electricity. I just want to make for sure that I am going to be getting a good price on the electricity once I make this move. It is going to be kind of a culture shock to live in Texas, I believe, because I am from a very different part of the country. But it is a good opportunity for me.

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 items.

I was aware I could purchase discount items online, but didn’t really feel good about doing so. I thought I would look cheap and unpresentable to my golfing buddies. Continue reading “Perfect for the Retired Golfing Fanatic”

He Fixed a Clogged Drain

When my shower water would not go down, I thought it was just a simple clog. I used the same thing I have successfully used in the past for a clogged drain, but it did not help this time. I knew that something serious was wrong when the water didn’t even budge, so I contacted a plumber in Morris County NJ who was able to come out that same day. It is the only shower that we have in the house, so I knew that it needed to be fixed quickly.

The plumber was able to determine what the problem was pretty fast because of a drain camera that he used. Continue reading “He Fixed a Clogged Drain”

How the Choice to Buy Instagram Likes Got Me Up to Speed with My Competitors Faster

Just a couple of years ago I would have told you there is no use for Instagram for any business. I would also have been wrong. I was not an early adopter of the social media platform, and now I am playing catch up. This is why I am buying buy Instagram likes now. I saw a book store that is a competitor to me using Instagram. I would never of thought how my type of business could use it for marketing. They had an ingenious idea.

They have a website and asked those who are part of their email list to send an Instagram pick of the books they bought labeling it with a hashtag of their business name. Continue reading “How the Choice to Buy Instagram Likes Got Me Up to Speed with My Competitors Faster”

Changing the Landscape of the Industry

With Direct TV in Berwick finally coming to the area, it’s no surprise that so many of us residents are making the decision today to switch over. We’ve had enough of digital cable and the poor cable infrastructure that has never been upgraded in the area. Satellite is going to quickly outpace the technology provided by these poor digital cable companies if they don’t do what Google and Verizon are doing by upgrading their networks to offer faster speeds and competitive prices to match the speeds. Few digital cable providers who are both television and Internet providers are capable of matching what Google and Verizon are doing. They are changing the landscape of the industry while Cox, Comcast and Time Warner sit back and allow it to happen around them. Continue reading “Changing the Landscape of the Industry”

Putting Together a New Website for Home Listings Was Easy with a Little Help

After working hard in my career selling real estate for 20 years, I decided that it was time to run open my own company as a broker. I no longer had the luxury of listing all of my homes that I sell on the corporate website belonging to the company I used to work for, so it was up to me to get things going on my end myself. A buddy of mine said I should just use some real estate website templates online to get the job right, but I wanted to learn how to do everything from scratch.

After a quick trip to the bookstore, I came home with a few books that would help me to learn how to make a great web page. But what I did not understand is that it is a lot harder than it looks. I assumed that I could learn how to do it quickly enough to have my own site up within a weekend. I began reading through the first book on a Friday night. Continue reading “Putting Together a New Website for Home Listings Was Easy with a Little Help”

Best Hotels in Cody Wyoming

I had a really bad case of hay fever last week. It was about as bad as having the flu, but it lasted longer. It was quite debilitating. I am not sure what the scientific name for that type of illness is. But anyway, I am glad that i am feeling better now, because I am planning a trip to Cody, Wyoming in the near future. In order to make arrangements for my trip, I need to figure out some information on Cody Wyoming hotels and see how much it is going to cost. I do not think it is going to cost a whole lot to stay at a hotel in the city, because Wyoming doesn’t have a very high cost of living, and therefore, it seems like it should be a lot cheaper to rent a hotel there in general.

At least cheaper than it would be to rent a hotel at somewhere with a higher population and stuff. Still, I am not trying to knock Cody, because it is a pretty awesome area, and I have been a number of times. Continue reading “Best Hotels in Cody Wyoming”

The Source of Cheap Internet Plans

I want to get my hands on a cheap internet plan because I will tell you what, I have internet right now, and it is anything but cheap. Rather is it quite the opposite of cheap and that really bothers me. I do not have enough money to continue paying such prices, and that is why I need to find something that is better. I really do not want to stick with my current provider for another month and have to pay the obscene bill again at the end of the next month. So the sooner I can switch, the better it will be for me in terms of how much money I am able to save.

I need to save as much money as I can these days, because living ain’t easy when you don’t have a good job. I am not making as much money at this point in time, as I thought I would be. Really, if you go back into the past about five years ago and you asked me how much money I thought I would be making 5 years down the road from now, I would have probably said something ridiculous compared to what I am actually making.

But hey, that’s life, and I am not complaining too much. I Just need to do what it takes to put food on the table, and that means not spend too much money on my bills. So yeah, this current plan has to go, and I need to find something. I mean, even if I did have a good job right now, I still would not keep my current plan, because it is just more money than anyone should charge for cable service. I am nto even getting a very fast internet connection in my house with it.

Reviews of Xfinity Home Security

I just hopped on the internet with the hopes of reading a Xfinity review to see what the deal is. I hear that they offer home security now, and I had not realized that before. Kind of cool, but I need to know first. I recently became someone in the market for a home security system. I never thought it t was necessary before, but some recent events have changed my thoughts on the matter. I guess it started last week when I was at home, on my lunch break from work, making myself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in order to save a bit of money.

I was standing there in a kitchen, and I heard sirens, and before I knew it, there were probably 6 police cars racing down my road. Continue reading “Reviews of Xfinity Home Security”
