Espresso Has Taken over the Office


At the office where I work, the boss got a new espresso machine that he saw on Cuppabean, and everyone has been loving it. There used to be an old coffee maker in the office, and once a pot of coffee was brewed, it would sit inside of the machine all day and get cold. I’m not sure if anyone ever bothered to give the coffee maker an occasional cleaning outside of simply changing the filter. Everyone seems to want to take better care of the new machine than they did the old one.

People have been bringing in their own coffee to use with the machine, even though there is some already at the office. I guess everyone has their own special blends that they think is best. I’m fine with pretty much anything and will use the stuff that is already there. There’s nothing like having a warm espresso, especially during the months when there is heavy snow fall. I hate coming to work in the snow. Continue reading

I Found a Place on the Lake


Of course I have been expecting to be moved in some place by now, but nothing ever worked out the way that I had hoped that it would. For close to a month I have had all of my belongs in a really nice self storage for Orillia. At any rate I have been able to find a rental house on the shore of Lake Simcoe and it is a really nice place for what I am paying. The guy who rented it to me is an avid fisherman who uses it on the weekends. He mostly wants me to look after the place and there is not any real reason the two of us can not both have what we want it would seem to me. Continue reading

Mirrors Are Your Best Friend for Small-scale Decorating


I bought an apartment that I absolutely adore. It is a bit small though, so I knew that I needed to be very careful with the way that I chose to decorate it after I first moved in. If you do not do it just right, you can easily overwhelm the small rooms, causing it to seem claustrophobic and even smaller than they already are. I looked around for someone who could make custom mirrors in Brooklyn to help me with my plans.

First, when you open the door to my place, you walk down a very narrow and dark hallway to get to the rest of the place. Because I am a renter, I cannot have light fixtures installed in the ceiling to help light the room up. There are no windows in the hallway either. There is a small alcove on one of the walls meant to be a spot where you throw your keys and wallet when you come home, so I played a very small lamp there. That helped a little bit. Continue reading

Buying in Bulk Really Does Save

I remember when I was younger and stores like the Home Depot first opened. I would go with my parents and just walk around the store, and look at all of the different design features that they had in lights and we could not get over all of the little things that they had to sell. I saw stuff that I had not even thought of needing, it has come so far in the past twenty years. We hit up the club stores, too and would try costco brand dog food reviews that were available from friends that had bought it before and we found out that their dogs liked the food as much, if not better than the food that they were buying at the pet store. It was a lot of money to buy the special dog food and you would not get a lot in a bag. I wanted to make sure that my parents were getting a better deal by buying in bulk so I did the math for them while were in the store.

I found out that per pound, you could not beat the store’s generic dog food. You were getting about twenty percent more than the more expensive food that was comparable. My parents would buy a lot of things in bulk after the store was first opened. We would have so much tuna that we would have to donate it or give it away because we were not going to be able to eat all of it before it went bad. I find today that it is best to buy things like paper towels and toilet paper, as it is so much cheaper in the big stores. We were going to check on the cat food the next time we went to the club.

We Have to Have Help to Get Things Done While My Husband Was Getting Medical Treatment

When we learned that my husband had cancer, I felt so much pain in my heart. During his treatment, we needed to pay a part time helper in Singapore to come help out with our business. The helper did such a wonderful job for us, and she has been worth every penny. I helped out as much as I could as I always have, but no matter how hard I pushed myself, I couldn’t do everything by myself. The helper helped us to keep our business going while my hubby was getting much-needed medical treatment. Now, I am very grateful that my husband is doing well and is on the mend once again.

I’m not a weak person, but I am someone who has been married ever since I was only 19 years old to the same man. We’re both strong together. On our own, we have noticed that we each struggle a bit because we’re not used to trying to tackle everything without some help. I would assume that it would be this way for most couples who have been together for many decades. Continue reading

Internet Marketing Does Not Make Much Sense to Me but I Do It Anyway

I will never be able to completely figure out Internet marketing. I mean, you are using a lot of social media to promote your business, and social media needs to make money to keep letting you use their platform for free. Facebook lets you livestream for four hours at no cost. Dedicated providers charge you a hefty price to do that. However, getting followers on Facebook and Instagram is not a cakewalk either. I had to buy Instagram followers to get my account going strong. If I waited for it to naturally get the number of followers I needed to make it worthwhile to have an employee handle our social media advertising, I would probably still be waiting.

We got into Instagram a lot later than we did the other social media opportunities out there. Continue reading

How We All Got Together to Get New Concrete Sidewalks on Our Block

I liked how we coordinated on our block for all of us to get new sidewalks at the same time. We just started talking as neighbors about cutting down a couple of trees that have gotten too big, replacing them with smaller trees and doing something about our sidewalks. We all wanted a wider sidewalk and for it to look uniform along the whole block. I called a concrete contractor in Nassau County, NY to see how they could work out putting in new sidewalks along the entire block and billing us individually.

We all agreed to a time when we could afford to get the work done. Continue reading

How I Found My Family Dentist

A dentist is someone you usually don’t think about until you have a toothache or some sort of dental emergency. Today is one of those days for me and I desperately need to find a dentist in Launceston. I woke up this morning with the most agonizing toothache I’ve ever had before. It hurts so bad to even take a drink of cold water. I had some water this morning and it made the pain radiate around my mouth. That is not a very good way to start the day. I’m new to this area and have not established a family dentist yet and need to start looking right away.

I asked Siri on my iPhone to find me a dentist that is close to me and to my surprise, she found one that was only a mile away. Continue reading

My Son Needed Physics Tutoring

My son was having trouble learning physics. This confused me because science had been coming so easily for him, so I talked with his teacher. As soon as I did, I learned what the problem was. There were just too many students in the class, and specialized attention could not be given to each student if they were falling behind. His teacher tried, but she was struggling to keep everyone together in the lessons too. She did suggest that I could look into A level physics tuition to see if that was an option for our family.

She told me that my son definitely had potential but that he would do better with some individual instruction. Continue reading

Adding More Items to My Shopping List

Buying a laptop can be a scary process, mainly because of how expensive they are. There are so many things to consider, and I put it right up there with buying a car. I would never just go out and buy a car without doing some research, and I felt that following that logic for a laptop was a pretty good strategy. The first thing I wanted to do was find out the complete Cyber Monday laptop deals for 2017, but I knew I would not be able to do that until it gets closer to that big shopping day.

I did not let that stop me from looking up some information though. Continue reading

My Family Will Be Together Again in One State Soon

When I was pretty young, most of my family members all lived near one another in Virginia. I remember it being a happy childhood. At some point, my dad needed to move for work and that took us far away from family. But now that has changed, and I’m looking through Manassas Park apartments to find one of my own now that I’m an adult. This means that we are all going back to our home state. My parents miss living near family, and I do, too. As much as I love all of my relatives, I really do need a place of my own, and my parents want their own place, too. They will come out there after I have settled in.

My grandparents are getting up there in years, and I don’t want to regret not spending more time with them. I began talking about this a lot with my mom and dad, and they agree. Dad has been working 15 years with a company, and he felt that he had hit a ceiling in the company and could not move up any higher. He was ready for a change. My mom is a secretary and feels that she can get a job anywhere. I feel the same way that my mom does because I am a hairstylist, and there’s a need for the service that I offer anywhere I go.

I have been really careful with saving my money, so I had quite a lot of money that set up to find a place in another state without any trouble. I will be getting a two bedroom apartment. I told my parents that they are welcome to come stay with me at my place after I move in and they can stay in the second bedroom until they can get on their own two feet. Later on, I will use the second bedroom as an office.

Leasing Luxury Apartments for out of Town Clients

I work for a very well-known record label in Charlotte, NC. Musicians travel from all over the country to record their latest projects at our recording studio. Part of our obligation to the artists is to provide them a place to stay while they’re in town. Typically, we put them up in a luxury hotel and spend and exorbitant amount of money on it. I came up with the idea of possibly looking for luxury apartments for South Charlotte and leasing one or two instead of paying for hotel rooms. My boss loved the idea and wanted me to move forward with the idea.

Of course, I started searching the internet to find a place where our clients would be comfortable and would be close to the recording studio. Almost immediately, I found one only two miles away. Continue reading

Divorce Doesn’t Need to Ruin Your Life

Divorce is never easy, because it is the end of something that you had so many hopes and dreams for. I know that was definitively the case with my marriage. I went into my marriage wanting it to last forever. I wanted to be that old couple that grow old on the porch together. But as they say you can only control yourself, not others. So when I needed to find a good lawyer to protect me I went online and did as internet search for divorce lawyer in saratoga ny . I had originally thought of just talking out together and not worry with a attorney, but my friend told me she and her ex-husband tried that and it did not work for them at all. I was so devastated when I found out that my husband wanted a divorce because he wanted to be with someone else. I was so betrayed and blindsided. That got to wake up and realize he could not be trusted. Continue reading

We Are Heading in the Right Direction

My father is one of the hardest working men that I know. When he started to slow down a bit, he asked my husband and I if we would like to integrate ourselves into his business. My husband has often helped him in the past when work got to be overwhelming for my dad, and he really enjoyed the work itself too. There was just not enough work for both to do it full time. Now there was though! One of the first things we did was a search for bespoke software development in Leeds because after looking at my dad’s office, we both knew that we were going to have to make some changes to make this work out for all of us. Continue reading

Red Roses for My Cousin

When my cousin was involved in an accident not long ago, we all thought she was going to recover fully. Her injuries proved to be too severe though, and she died nearly three weeks after the accident. We were all taken aback by it, because this was a girl who was larger than life in so many ways. I knew that I needed to find a florist to deliver funeral flowers in Melbourne, which is where her funeral was held. I had never ordered any before, but I had to get something special for her sendoff to Heaven. Continue reading

I Needed to Get New Tyres

After my divorce, I had to learn to do a lot of things that I had never done before. My ex had always taken care of the lawn, so I had to learn how to mow the grass. He had also always taken care of the insurance options, so I had to learn about the different kinds so I could make my own choices. Taking care of the car was something else he always did, so I was on my own when I needed new tyres for my car. I looked at a tyre shop in Dandenong because it came highly recommended by my new neighbor.

He told me that is where he gets tyres for his car as well as his wife’s van, so that was a good enough recommendation for me. If he trusted them to take care of the tyres on his wife’s vehicle, they had to be good. Continue reading

My Spouse Was Right About What I Needed to Do

In the far past, I have not really given much thought to how long I had been smoking. Then I watch the news story one night, and it mentioned that most people don’t do that. So I took a moment to think about the fact that I had been smoking for 40 years. The program went on to give a Smoke Free in One Hour review and I listened carefully to what they had to say. Actually thinking about the fact that I had been smoking for more than half of my life was horrifying. The program sounded interesting, but I was thinking that I would try to quit on my own again. I had tried on my own before, and I was thinking this next time would stick.

I told my wife and my kids that I was going to quit again. My wife was supportive, but she also rolled her eyes at me. She asked what I was going to do differently this time, and I answered that I was just going to stop cold turkey like I had before. She briefly said something about hoping that it worked and I really should try something different that might actually work. I ignored her and threw the rest of the cigarettes in my pack out. I had a lot of faith in myself that it would work for once.

The next morning, I got up and immediately thought about smoking as I did every morning. I think I was okay for all of about 10 minutes before I panicked and told my cigarettes out of the garbage. Yes, I really did that. I knew then that my wife was right. I had to try something different. So thinking about the one-hour program that I heard about the night before, I got online and purchased it. It worked. Nothing else I had ever tried before worked, but this program did.

I Think Every House Where It Gets Chilly Can Enjoy the Benefits of a Towel Radiator

My grandmother has issues with iron-deficiency anemia that she gets treated for off and on. She feels cold even on nice days even when her iron levels are near or at normal. We did things to help her feel warmer in her cottage home. We fully insulated it and replaced the furnace. In the bathroom I had one of those infrared lights added that really can heat you up when you stand under it. They are great after bathing. I also had a 350mm wide towel radiator installed. The hot water flowing through it adds heat to the room and makes the towels add heat to your body rather than stripping it away.

You will find these in better hotels and in spas. Heated towels are a popular comfort item. They feel so good. It is like putting on a warm sweatshirt just out of the clothes dryer on a chilly day. The extra heat feels great. Continue reading

Buy Online when Local Isn’t There

I had some good times at my local vape shop. I would walk in and talk with the staff when I went to make a purchase and we would have a good time. After a couple of years of being in business, the store had to close down because of financial reasons. It was a real shame, because I enjoyed going there and it was the only place for me to get my vaping products in person. All of the other vaping shops were miles away. A FT Lauderdale Ejuice shop was the best option I had for getting my products since the closing.

I didn’t decide on the shop right away. I tried using some other online stores before I went with the one in Florida. Continue reading

Bet on the Home Team

A friend of mine likes to make bets on sporting events all the time. He doesn’t even win most of the time, but that doesn’t stop him from doing it. It’s a wonder that he hasn’t become completely bankrupt by now. He urged me to make some bets too, saying that I could probably make a lot of money from some of the games. I wouldn’t consider myself a lucky person, and I don’t know sports stats well enough to make good bets, so I used betting tips to help me decide which teams I should choose.

I watch more baseball than any other sport, so I made a bet for an upcoming home team game. Continue reading

Fighting Against an Unfair Audit

For the first time in my life, I was hit with a tax audit last year. It came as a shock to me to see a letter arrive in the mail telling me about it. I thought it was some kind of scam at first, so I contacted the IRS, but they confirmed it was real. I asked them why I was being audited, and they told me it was because of how much money I made. I immediately started looking for a New York tax attorney that could get me out of this situation.

I found what I considered to be one of the best tax attorneys in the entire country. Continue reading

This Supplement Has Helped Me Lose Weight

I wanted to lose weight, but I was just not sure how to do it. I know the way that makes the most sense is to just stop eating so much and then exercise more. If I had all the time in the world, that would be the way I would go. However, I have to eat quick meals, and I rarely have time to walk a block let alone several miles in a day. I knew that I needed some help, which is why I read a Phen24 review once I heard what great results people were having with it. Continue reading

Online Clothing Boutique with Incredible Prices

I wanted to look at some envy dresses, but I had no idea where to look online. I had always bought my dresses from the boutique down the road from me, but they went out of business a few months ago. I had been to the other shops in town, and I just did not like any of the clothes that they sell. I have a really nice figure, and I don’t mind showing it off in classy clothes. I don’t like wearing something generic that every other girl in town has tried on as well.

That is why I liked the boutique that I had bought from before. They had such a nice collection that was perfect for me. I knew that I would need to go online to try and find a new clothing boutique that had my style of dresses and outfits. Continue reading

Sometimes a Novice Can Win

One of my friends always goes on and on about how he’s the best golfer in the area, and that no one would be able to beat him. I used to be able to tolerate his boasting, but one day I just became tired of it, and decided to shut him up once and for all. I told him that I could be him at any time and any place, and then he challenged me to a game. Despite having never played golf, I agreed to the challenge, and started looking for the best sand wedge, driver, and more so that I could have a chance at winning.

In hindsight, I was a fool to agree to the challenge. I had no idea if I could even beat my friend, and the odds were definitely against me. Continue reading

I Absolutely Had to Have This Car

My dream vehicle is a 2014 Lamborghini Gallardo. Actually, anything from that car company is a dream vehicle, but I love the Gallardo because I think it’s one of the finest cars they have ever made. Is it expensive? Sure it is. It’s a super car. But it’s also wicked fast and looks great moving down the road. The only problem I had was finding one that I could make a deal on. Everyone who owned one wanted an arm and a leg for it, way above what it was worth, and I am not stupid enough to make that deal.

Recently I sold a couple of other vehicles I’ve owned for the past few years and decided I needed to make a serious effort to replace them with this car. Continue reading

I Hope to Give My Daughter the Memories That I Grew Up with

When I was a little girl, my mom handed me a beautiful, tiny, gold box on Christmas morning. Inside was a ring with my birthstone! I was so pleased and touched by it, even though I was only 13 years old, and most kids at that age are not really touched by things. My mom explained that every month has a birthstone. Now that I have a 13 year old daughter, I wanted to do the same for her with aquamarine gemstones in a ring that she too could cherish and keep all her life. Continue reading

A New Way to Improve Delivery Service

Why shouldn’t technology figure out a better way when it comes to delivery service? Starting up a business that requires delivering items is tough enough before you even figure out how to get your products moved around the area. I was looking at an extensive outlay just to obtain my own vehicle fleet. Adding paid drivers ramped that cost up into the stratosphere. What I needed to do was find out if there was some way I could outsource this part of the business without breaking my budget. If I had to buy own fleet there would be no money left to run my business.

Fortunately a friend in my line of work found a solution to his own problems and he recommended I look at what he uses online to see if it could work for me. I found the company and read up and thought this could actually work. They run their own fleets of trucks and various vehicles and even provide drivers who are honest and reliable. Even better, their coverage area works well for my business. Anything I need to send further out I can ship through other means. I gave them a chance to see what would happen.

The results have been nothing short of spectacular. All of my clients rave about how quickly they receive their items. Moreover, the cost of doing business this way has saved my company so much money that I can’t see fit to even bother with looking into purchasing my own fleet of delivery vehicles. I also must say that I love the look of their vehicles. They are very professional and sleek looking and leave quite an impression on my customers. Most of my clients think that I actually own these vehicles because they look so top notch and professional!

A Cool Site for Music I Like

I did a search for Baixar mp3 because I had been looking for a certain song for a while now. Living in the United States definitely has its perks, but it was not always easy finding what I wanted when I wanted to listen to some music. None of the stores around me carry the kind of music that I like, which is why I went online to see if it would be easier to find the music that I wanted. I was able to find a site that has since then become my favorite site on the net.

It is Krafta, an mp3 site that just rocks. It has all of my favorite songs on there, but that is not the main reason why I like it so much. I am able to listen to any of the songs there for free, and that has introduced me to so many new groups that I might not have heard otherwise. I know a lot of people listen to one genre of music mostly, but I am not like that. Continue reading

Helping Those Who Fought for Our Freedom

When I started looking at the history of wrestling, I came across Jim Crockett promotions. I know most might not know who this is, but the wrestlers who fought under the Crockett brand name were actually the pioneers of wrestling. Without them, wrestling would not be what it is today. However, when I first started looking at their site, I was impressed with what they are doing now since they are no longer in the wrestling business. They have taken on a very worthwhile cause, which is helping veterans who need help after coming home from a deployment.

I know a lot of folks think that soldiers coming home are okay to resume their normal lives. What they don’t understand is that they have lived a different kind of lifestyle while they were gone. It is not fun and games for them. Continue reading

I Wanted to Learn About Affiliate Marketing

When I first heard of Ewen Chia, I was really surprised at how much money he has made simply by knowing what works and what doesn’t as far as Internet work goes. I was impressed though, and I knew that I wanted to know more. He has a website that has a lot of great information on it, and what he said really made sense to me. I wanted to see what others were saying, so I did an online search for Ewen Chia review so I could see how people who have taken his courses feel about him.

That is what impressed me even more, because everyone was happy with what they learned from him. I was able to read a review by someone who was just like me and had never heard of Ewen Chia before, but he also took the program. Continue reading

Found a Magic Wand in My Closet

I have started to move in with my girlfriend, just doing it slowly right now. She has a nice little house that used to belong to her grandfather before he moved to a retirement community in Myrtle Beach South Carolina. So far I am just moving the stuff that I need to do the daily routine and a lot of my stuff is not going to make it over there. While I was packing up I found one of those magic wand massager things. I guess that it must have belonged to the girl I used to live with when I got out of college. It was sort of hidden in the closet and there was not any way to find it without cleaning up all of the random stuff I had in there. I showed it to Anna and she laughed. When I asked her if she wanted it, she said that she had one that was pretty similar to that one. Continue reading

Getting Ready to Move to Houston

I have started to plan the move and I am hoping that it is going to be pretty painless when I pack up. I have been looking for a place near my new job in Houston, but of course that is one of the big cities in the world from a geographic view. It is just an enormous metro area and it looks like it is going to be pretty hard to find a good location. I have been doing research at a couple of website that list information about the area. Of course I did not know that they let you pick your own power company in Texas. It is not something that matters around here. Continue reading

Energy Providers in Texas Information

I have to do a report on Texas energy companies and I am going to try to make it a good report. I used to do a decent job on assignments, back when I was in high school, but now that I am in college and I am going to have to pay back a lot of student loans for my education, it is going to be a struggle, most likely to help me with my report. I am reading to learn more about energy providers in the state, because that should be really helpful for what I want to do.

I am not excited about having to do a lot of research, mostly because I find it to be boring. Continue reading

Have a Chance to Get a Little House

This sort of came up more quickly than I would have expected and it is something that might be gone if I do not figure out what I need to do to take advantage of it. In theory I have the money that I need for this, because this house is in a rather poor location and it is not in the best of shape. Of course there is a lot more to it than you think there is. For starters I have been talking to this service by email and trying to figure out how to get enough home insurance to satisfy the bank. Continue reading

Don’t Become a Victim to Crime

When owning or even renting a home, one of the first things that should be considered, must be considered, is safety. Home insurance and the like is common place but not every renter home owner gives thought to the other dangers that exist. It’s not a subject which is commonly approached in polite company but there is no denying that crime is a fact of life and one that we have to face on a day to day basis whether we recognize it or not. I’ve found ADT Security to be one of the most dependable security companies that residents can rely on.

It’s important to realize that every home is a potential target to criminals. Whether they be an individual or a group, a criminal ring, they are always on the prowl for an easy target. Continue reading

My Mom and Her “Dish Cable”

My mom has been calling it Dish cable. Kind of a funny term if you ask me. She has had their service for about two years now and was looking forward to switching to what we have. She likes our on-screen guide and the On-Demand better on our system. Mom is a movie buff. She uses some of her entertainment dollars to go to the movies and to watch PPV on TV. During the winter months when the weather keeps her from getting out for a few days at a time she will sit on the couch with her little dog and watch new and old movies.

She had been telling me that she was wanting to switch from her Dish cable to the satellite service we have. I told her that it would be best to just wait the couple of months she had to go on her contract with her provider and then switch satellite service without penalty. Continue reading

Saving Money and Having Adventures

I checked out the website for Texas energy companies and found a better pricing plan for my home. The money I saved allowed me to get something that I always wanted to get since I was a kid. Ever since I saw a movie about a family that goes camping in the woods, I always wanted to have my own RV. I wanted to drive it around to some far off camp site, and then just have a good time in the woods, hiking and fishing at a nearby lake. I bought an RV and some camping equipment and set out to go camping one weekend.

I drove to a remote area where there was a small lake so that I could fish too. I set up camp and unloaded my canoe and got into the lake. The first few hours of fishing were a little slow, but after a while things picked up. The fish were practically hopping out of the water to get onto my hook. I caught 10 fish that day. After fishing, I gathered some fire wood and make a big fire. I scaled the fish and cooked them over the fire. Continue reading

Started Planning the New Homestead

We have all of the money issues sorted out, thanks in part to some help from the father in law. I had the land from before I even got married, it is one and three quarter acres on the slope of a nice hill and I am going to build the house into the hill. The hill faces South and I am going to try to get as much free solar benefit as I can, while also putting the house under the ground enough so the ground insulates it. I already have an adt alarm system with the house that we are using now, but I am going to put in some smart house features in this one. Pretty much the same way that you can open your garage door with your smart phone now, you will be able to get into this house by simply entering a four digit code and it will not matter if you forgot your key.

There will probably be a driveway alarm at some point. Continue reading

Information About Taking a Tour of Turkey

My wife’s parents came from Turkey, and I guess that my wife has always wanted to be able to visit the country, as a result of the fact that her parents came from there. That makes sense to me, and I want to fulfill her travel desires. We have gone to a lot of places that I wanted to go to, in the past, so I think it is time to do something for her. I am looking into taking a turkey tour in the near future. I do not know how much it is going to cost to take a tour of Turkey, but that is something that I would start to look into in the near future.

It is not clear, exactly when we would be able to take this trip, because we both have fairly busy schedules. I know that we both have enough vacation time built up, with our work places, to take a trip to Turkey. Timing is just the key factor, and it is something that I will need to discuss with my wife. Continue reading
