Trimming Pines to Make the Perfect Spot to Relax - July 3, 2019 by admin

We have a line of pine trees in our back yard that had branches that grew all the way to the ground. We wanted to trim them up to expose the trunks at the bottom and to create an open area underneath the trees. They are big trees, and we wanted them pruned up from the bottom to expose about eight feet or so of the trunks. We wanted to be able to walk under them. We called a place that does tree pruning in Nassau County to come out and do the job. The trees were planted close together in a patch. It would be a perfect area to get shade in the summer.

The tree pruning service we hired came out and did a perfect job. They treated every spot on each tree that had a branch cut too. This would protect the trees from pests and other things that can kill a pine tree. We were happy that our trees were so healthy. There was a thick mat of pine needles that they cleaned up too. read the entry »

Better Than Any History Class - April 21, 2019 by admin

Last year I went on one of those walking holidays in Spain with my parents. I expected it to be boring, mostly because I was with my parents, but also because of history class. History always bored me, and when we were covering Spain in class, I had no interest in it whatsoever. So, when it came time for us to take the trip, I was less than enthusiastic. I even tried to get out of going at one point, so I could lounge around the house. I’m glad that my parents took me along on the trip, because I had more fun than I could have imagined.

Going through the different areas didn’t just feel like different country to me. It was like we were on a new planet entirely. read the entry »

I Realized That I Wasn’t Safe at All Without an Alarm - February 9, 2018 by admin

I didn’t really realize how safe I felt when I lived at home in my parent’s house and we had an alarm system. I took it for granted and did not really think about it until I moved out on my own. I moved to a new city after getting a new job, and I made sure to look for ADT in Miami because that is the company my parents used for their home security. The system is one that I’m familiar with and I know it works well. I figured I would get a new system at some point, but I wasn’t in a big rush at first.

I think part of the reason why I felt so secure when living with my parents is that we lived in a somewhat small town where it is mostly quiet. read the entry »

We Were Finally Getting an Apartment Where We Could Have Our Own Clothes Washer and Dryer - September 7, 2017 by admin

I had a stack of those apartment ads on the table at lunch in the cafeteria at work. My husband and I had been looking for a new apartment for weeks. We wanted out of our old place, and the lease renewal was coming up in less than a month. We wanted someplace close to work, but not too close. We both would rather have a short commute and be outside of the metro area than to live right downtown. I was not finding anything that caught my eye and neither was he. My coworker wrote the website down on a piece of paper and gave it to me. I went back to my computer to look it up, and I sent the link to my husband within about five minutes of checking it out. I was certain I found the place we should move to. read the entry »

I Rushed to Get Help when I Thought Things Were Worse then They Were - May 22, 2017 by admin

I rushed to see a Tracy dentist after I was out mountain biking, slammed iinto a tree and broke off part of my tooth. I could see with my fingers that part of the tooth was missing, and I was mortified. I think of myself as a guy who is not all that good looking, but I have a nice smile. I really did not want to lose what little positive things I felt about myself and feel uncomfortable with smiling at others. I know how people can be when it comes to looks.

I was already getting some bruises about 5 minutes after I hit the tree. It’s a pretty good thing that I didn’t break any bones or worse. read the entry »

Happy to Call This Place Home - March 13, 2017 by admin

My twin sister and I are really close. We have friends who have siblings, and we have never seen any of them as close as we are. It just made sense that when we both graduated from college, that we would look at apartments in Newport News VA. We knew that we wanted to live there, and it would make life easier on both of us if we shared a two bedroom apartment. We looked at a lot of different apartment complexes, and we both agreed that Autumn Lakes was the one we wanted to call home.

Neither of us are huge on crowds, which is the main reason we chose this apartment complex over the others. read the entry »

It’s Best Not to Trust Everything That You Hear from Just Anyone - January 5, 2017 by admin

You can’t always count on people to do the right thing when it comes to honesty. I’ve seen that be a problem too many times. But my continuing problem is that I am far too trusting. People burn me all the time, so to speak. For example, when I was in a a car accident about six months ago, the other driver begged me not to contact his insurance company. As a consequence, I was having trouble getting paid for my injuries. Hiring a Sacramento personal injury attorney what I ended up needing to do so that I could pay the bills I needed to the doctor that I was seeing due to injuries.

The issue is that the other driver did not want his rates to be raised by me calling his insurance company. I had already called the police as soon as the dust settled from the crash. I did that before I even got out of the car. Not because I didn’t trust the other driver but because I didn’t know if the other guy was hurt. read the entry »

Chiropractor Treatment After Car Accident - September 28, 2016 by admin

I suffered some fairly severe neck injuries in a car crash not that long ago. They are not as severe as was initially thought though, which is definitely a great thing. I was temporarily paralyzed from the neck down immediately after the accident, and a doctor told me I would never walk again. But I am not paralyzed at all anymore, which is a minor miracle in itself. Yet, I need to find a car accident chiropractor in Chandler as I am still in a lot of pain. It is a whole lot of pain and sometimes I struggle just to dress myself in the morning. If I even get that far, because sometimes, I really have to convince myself to just get out of bed.

Of course, eventually I end up getting out of bed, because I am in a siutation where my pain increases the longer I am in bed beyond a certain point. In fact, it is hard for me to find anything that is comfortable, in terms of a position. Sitting, standing, laying. They all cause me pain after awhile. That is why I am looking forward to a trip to a chiropractor, because I feel like it is one thing that could definitely serve to help me out with this problem, and maybe some treatment with a chiropractor will be the thing that I need to really speed up my recovery.

I sure hope that it does the trick, because i do not know how much longer I can endure this type of pain on a daily basis. My doctors have assured me that I will continue to make progress with my recovery from the injuries. But they said it will take time, so I want to do anything that can speed up that recovery time.

I Finally Settled Things with the Insurance Company - September 15, 2016 by admin

It was really aggravating, especially since I have not ever changed my position from the start. The insurance company seemed to think that if they stalled long enough I would get desperate, although the entire time I was threatening to bring in a Sacramento auto injury attorney which would have ended up costing them more. Of course the problem is that it would not have put more money in my pocket and perhaps I would have ended up with less. I did all of the math and I knew exactly what it would cost for me to get back to square one, where I was before that jerk crashed into me because he was not paying attention. It was a big mess for me and I was lucky that my Dad had a spare car that he no longer needed. That was what allowed me to stand my ground and wait them out, because I did not have enough money sitting around to replace the car that I had lost.

It seemed as though they were always overplaying their hand to in fact. read the entry »

Started to Plan the House’s Electronic Systems - July 1, 2016 by admin

I have just now Started to plan the house’s electronic systems. Of course the basic premise is to end up with a house which is safe to live in and has the most cost effective design. It is going to be a smart house, but I have to be smart about how I design the thing and how much money you put in it. For instance the CCTV systems are probably going to be somewhat minimal. I want to be able to see who is at the front door and who is in the drive way, without getting out of the recliner. However I do not need to be able to conduct 360 degree surveillance of the entire grounds. I do not want to get notified every time a roe deer comes in the yard to graze on the grass in the back yard. read the entry »

Passing Muster with the Fashion Police at Work on a Shoestring Budget - March 21, 2016 by admin

They say you have to dress for the job you want. Where I work I think it is very true. There is sort of a competition among lower managers to look sharp at all the meetings and company outings. Some of these guys and gals go into debt to buy clothes for the office. Not me. I like my job, but I know I shop smarter than many of my coworkers. I am one of two managers that is married with kids. Our budgets are different. I buy my suits, shoes, belts, designer sunglasses, shirts and other clothing and accessories at greatly discounted prices or I don’t buy them at all.

I actually learned this back when I was a teenager. read the entry »

Direct TV is for the Entire Family - October 27, 2015 by admin

I learned a lesson last month, and it is really quite simple. Sports lovers need Direct TV rather than cable or online streaming services. While cable and online streaming have their place, they are definitely not for someone who enjoys a lot of sports. Direct TV has exclusive packages that no other programming provider can show unless it is in their market. With Direct TV, it doesn’t matter if I want to watch the Bills pummel the Dolphins or the Rams take on the Texans. I am able to watch any and all games with the Sunday Ticket, which no one else can carry. read the entry »

Wigs Change Our Very Look - July 21, 2015 by admin

There are so many fabulous kinky curly hair wigs to choose from that it can get a little confusing but, it does not have to be. There is so much information for you take advantage of and before you know it you will be wearing your fabulous front lace wigs with attitude and total confidence, knowing that you look so good having made the right choice.What are lace wigs anyway? Well, until recently I had never heard of them and I was pretty sure that I had not been living in the dark ages. So, I was very surprised to find that quite a few Hollywood A listers have been using them to great effect for quite some time. It made me feel better when I realised that these wigs are so totally amazing that I would have trouble telling them apart from real hair even if I was close up. read the entry »

Almost Done with the Move to Houston - July 16, 2015 by admin

We are in the process of moving to Houston right now and everything is up in the air. Of course we want to get everything done before school starts back in a few weeks after the summer break. We got a pretty good deal on the house we bought and we also got a good price on our old house. At the moment we are looking at getting a new ADT for Houston Texas homes home security system. Of course it does you no good unless you pay the monthly fee and get the monitoring service. Otherwise it is just going to be a big waste of time and money. You would still have the alarm going off I guess, but that is not going to do anything. The thief might think that the police are on the way, but it is not going to be as effective as the guy from the monitoring service telling you that they are coming. We need to do some more moving. read the entry »

Is Romney Worried About His Support Among Rich White Guys? - August 20, 2012 by admin

What thing do people try to claim as I really do not see how Romney can be taken seriously after the choice of Paul Ryan as his Vice Presidential candidate. When you think about it there is only one group of people that this choice helps him with and those are the same people who would likely vote for Adolf Hitler so long as he did not look like Barack Obama. Very few other demographics are going to be terribly pleased by the addition of a man who looks a lot too ideological and partisan to be a good president of the United States of America. Seniors and people approaching the age of retirement will be very easily convinced that Ryan plan of slashing of entitlement programs is not going to serve their interests.

It is going to be very easy to convince the majority of moderates that Ryan is an ideologue. read the entry »
