I Wanted a Condo of My Own

Written on May 31, 2018 at 4:30 pm, by admin

I have been in a lot of the condo developments in the area because of my friends. In the last year alone, I have helped four friends move into four different ones. Even though I was in the market for one myself, I was just not happy with any of the ones that my friends moved into for one reason or another. When I was transferred to District 9, I was very grateful that I had not found anything I liked because it would have been harder to move. Once there, I found the New Futura development quickly because it is one of the places closest to where I now work.

I was given a housing allowance for my move, but I was hoping to not have to use all of it. Read more

The Only Way to Go with a Rug

Written on May 17, 2017 at 4:30 am, by admin

Until I discovered the wonders of custom designer rugs, I bought all my rugs at the local department store just like everyone else. I figured what is the big deal? They’re rugs. No one notices what type of rugs you’ve got inside the door or in the bathroom. They are all the same. How wrong I was. What if I was to tell you the difference between a custom rug and a mass produced rug was like the difference between night and day? It really is. You haven’t owned a decent rug until you’ve gone custom. They’re that superior.

Of course, buying anything that is custom tends to get a little pricey. I think everyone knows that. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get a quality product without spending a bundle of money. Read more

Our Limo Was Part of Our Honeymoon Adventure

Written on August 12, 2015 at 4:30 am, by admin

My bride to be and I talked a lot about going here and going there. We were not rich, nor did we want to go in debt. However, we did want to see things we have never seen before. When we were looking for a limo service for our wedding day, we were also looking at a bunch of different things we could do in the area where we lived. Many of the things had been on both of our lists of things we wanted to do since we were children. The “go here” link for our limo service was also the go to link for our chartered tour of our local region.

We were planning a wedding and a two week away honeymoon with another week off to set up our new apartment together. We both had a total of four weeks vacation from work, and we were using three of them for our wedding and honeymoon and apartment set up. We decided to go someplace warm yet cheaper on our honeymoon for the opportunity of being able to rent a limo to tour our own local attractions. We took a week riding in a limo to see places in our own region that we had never been to before. Read more

Peachtree City Georgia Apartment Listings

Written on August 14, 2015 at 12:47 am, by admin

I am looking for a place to live in Peachtree City. Kind of a funny name, I do admit, and I had never heard of the place until a few years ago. But recently, I found a job there, and so I am going to make the move. So I need to find out about apartments for rent in Peachtree City GA and I want to find some sort of guide to apartment listings in the city. I do not really want to rent, because I think that it is smarter to own. But I do not know if I am going to be able to make it last with this company over the long run. Read more

We Know We Are Doing the Right Thing for Our Child

Written on January 9, 2016 at 5:30 pm, by admin

My husband and I were really lucky in that he had a great job that allowed me the luxury of staying home with our baby for his first years of life. But it soon became apparent that my husband would be laid off. He began looking for a new job immediately, but was having no luck. This meant that I needed to work immediately. I knew that I could find a job quite quickly. This also meant that we would need to put our son into daycare, so I went to the official site for a well known daycare in our area that I had heard about to learn more.

We had always hoped that I would be the only one who would need to care for our child until he reached the age of 5 and could start attending the elementary school near us. Read more

Our Lawn Needed More Personality

Written on September 16, 2016 at 12:32 am, by admin

One of the things that I disliked about the building my company had just purchased for our new headquarters was how stark and uninviting it looked. The building itself is really nice, but there was no landscaping done outside to make it welcoming to people. Probably even before the ink was dried, I was looking for a tree service in Nassau County that would be able to make our grounds more beautiful. I know a lot of people associate a tree service with a company that cuts or trims trees, but I knew that there were some that also did commercial landscaping.

I did not want a gardener because I was mostly interested in having trees and shrubs planted. I won’t ask a baker to cook me a steak, so I was not going to ask a gardener to plant me several dozen trees. Read more

Do Not Ignore Squeaks Coming from Your Dryer

Written on January 11, 2017 at 5:34 pm, by admin

Our dryer started squeaking about a year ago. It was a mild sound that was occasional at first. Then it got more pronounced as time went on. When someone on the phone asked me what the squeaking sound was, I figured it was time to call a place that does appliance repair in Sacramento to fix it. If I let it go any longer, my neighbors might start complaining of the loud squeaking noise coming from our clothes dryer. We had gotten used to hearing it and pretty much ignored it. The clothes still dried just fine, so it was not really a big deal.

However, the squeak was caused by a bad bearing where the drum rotates. This caused a shift in the drum that then wore out the seal between the rotating drum and the frame of the dryer. The bearing was not expensive to replace, and the seal was not too expensive. Read more

People Still Buy and Use CB Radios

Written on April 22, 2018 at 8:30 pm, by admin

When I was a kid you had to have an FCC license to operate a CB radio. I remember that channel 9 was the emergency frequency, and you could get in a lot of trouble using it wrongly. Channel 19 was the common channel used by truck drivers. You would hear traffic reports as well as warnings about speed traps and road hazards. Drivers would tell other drivers if lights were out on their rigs and more. When I recently got a job driving truck, I checked online for CD radio reviews. I was surprised to discover that Citizen Band radios were still in use by truck drivers.

It makes sense. It is an immediate method of short range communication. Read more

I Think Our Kids Are Under Too Much Pressure to Perform Academically

Written on April 12, 2018 at 4:31 pm, by admin

I knew there was a problem when I got home early from work one day due to heavy rains shutting down our construction project. I was in the kitchen getting something from the refrigerator when our daughter came home from school. She was slamming doors and stomping around. She was mad and I asked her what was wrong. She started crying and told me about getting a bad grade on a physics test. She has always been strong academically, and this was a big deal to her. I told her that we would get her physics tuition if she wanted it. She already had a teacher in mind.

She knew she was not understanding her physics class as well as she should, so she was already looking for some tutoring help on her own. She could not get the understanding she needed with in-school tutors, so she started looking online for physics tuition and found a highly dynamic teacher that really helps a lot of students improve their physics grades by a full two-grade increase.

A Perfect Tutoring Method for Success

Written on February 4, 2018 at 5:32 pm, by admin

I knew https://physicstuitionsg.com would be perfect for my son after I spent about an hour reading through the site. I was looking for a physics tutor for my son because he had serious problems with the subject and needed to learn about it in order to do well on his exams. We never really understood why he didn’t understand the subject well because he blossomed in almost every other subject in school. Even other branches of science didn’t seem to present a serious challenge for him. I guess there is something about physics that you either get or not.

He definitely needed to get it if he wanted to pass those exams, though. Read more

Hiring a Professional Company to Clean My Home

Written on February 4, 2018 at 5:31 pm, by admin

Last week I got a promotion at work and am going to have to relocate to another city. This means I’m going to have to move and find a new place to live. This promotion is going to keep me extremely busy and I’m going to have to hire a moving company to pack up all of my belongings and move them to my new home. I have also hired a company that provides professional cleaning services in Singapore to take care of all of the moving out cleaning that needs to be done. I simply don’t have enough time to do this myself and must outsource it.

Before hiring the cleaning company, I met with them to discuss everything that I need to be done and how they can ensure that it will be properly completed. The representative I met with was very friendly, courteous and accommodating to me. The meeting started off on a good foot. The rep went on to explain the scope of work they provide for moving out and it coincided perfectly with my expectations. She was very confident and guaranteed that I would get my deposit back after the cleaners were done. Read more

I Am Managing a Building

Written on November 29, 2017 at 5:30 am, by admin

I have sort of become the building manager for the boss, although I am not really sure how and at first I did not really understand what it was that I am supposed to do. The most obvious thing is that you need to engage some person or company that does regular cleaning services in Singapore and it turned out that the reason I got this job was related to that. In essence the last guy was getting some sort of kick back from the people he gave the contract too. They were overcharging the boss and he found out, although it was not because he was smart or anything. Read more

I Now Understand the Appeal of Manicures

Written on November 26, 2017 at 5:30 pm, by admin

Before, I could not see why someone would pay to have someone else trim their nails and paint them. I have seen some really fantastic nails when I have been out, but they also were attached to women who looked like they could be models. I am a single mom with two jobs, so having those kinds of nails was not on my radar. At work, we have all kinds of bonus incentives, and I received a certificate for a manicure service in Singapore as a random gift for outstanding customer service.

While I would have never paid for it myself, I decided to go ahead and take advantage of this. Just because I would never do it on my own did not mean I was not looking forward to this. It is just like cooking. Read more

Always Get a Clean Place

Written on November 24, 2017 at 5:31 pm, by admin

I became a home owner for the first time this year. Selecting the right home was a long process, but I feel that I’ve chosen the right one. My mother told me that before I move into the home, I should look at move in cleaning for Singapore. I wasn’t sure why she wanted me to do this, and she told me that she doesn’t trust how clean a place is before living in it. When she first moved into her home with my dad, she bought some cleaning supplies from the local store and scrubbed every surface and swept every floor.

My father thought my mother had gone crazy when he saw her cleaning everything. Over the years, she’s been a bit of a neat freak, even after my brothers and I were born. I’m more of a slob, and my mom would always get on me about cleaning my room. Read more

I Had a Really Interesting Day

Written on November 20, 2017 at 5:32 pm, by admin

I have sort of been loaned out this week. I did not know who the lady was at first, but I eventually figured out that her family is somehow involved in the ownership of the place where I work. Apparently they are involved in all sorts of other things as well. I picked her up at the airport about a week ago and took her to get a manicure and pedicure in Singapore. She had a massage while some other people arrived. It took a long time for me to figure out that they were accountants and other types of bean counters. They were obviously preparing for something. They held a meeting and then everyone got in their cars. Read more

I Stopped by Useless Products and Got Help That Really Works

Written on November 4, 2017 at 4:30 pm, by admin

I have tried so many different over-the-counter creams and lotions, and none of them have helped to restore the glowing skin that I used to have. I never thought I would feel so self-conscious about the way that I look, but it happened quickly. Seeing an aesthetic doctor has helped to restore my self-esteem so that I feel good again. I wasted so much money on products that didn’t work over the years. Seeing a doctor for help is what truly worked.

I live in a country with a thriving beauty market. I see so many ads for different products that claim that they will do all sorts of amazing things for my skin. Unfortunately, I believed many of the things those ads said. Read more

I Needed an Apartment in Florida

Written on August 28, 2017 at 12:30 pm, by admin

I grew up in a very rural area. When I say in the boonies, that really is what I mean. We had to travel nearly 30 minutes just to get to our school every day or to a store like Walmart. I knew I wanted more, and going off to college in Salt Lake City showed me that I definitely prefer city living over country living. After graduating, i was hired on as a teacher at a school outside of Tampa, Florida. I looked at the surrounding areas and knew that I wanted an apartment in Brandon FL because of everything I had read about the area.

I was able to find a nice apartment rather fast, but that is because there are so many apartment complexes there that are nice. I had looked at about a dozen of them, and I knew that I wanted to live at Overlook for a number of reasons. First, the location could not be more perfect. It will not take me long to get to my job. If there is one thing that I have learned to dislike since living in the country, it is a long commute. Read more

We Found a Little Summer House

Written on May 22, 2017 at 4:30 am, by admin

The place is on the inlet between Destin Beach and the town of Niceville. It is not exactly on the beach, but then that is fine with me. I would really rather be protected from a real storm surge. The place is nothing more than a cottage and there are about another half dozen of them quite close to it. They seem to be around ten or fifteen years old and it is obvious that all of them are used like we would use them. Right now we are getting quotes on homeowners insurance in Florida, looking to see what it would cost for us to have it either bundled with the mortgage payment or if we got it separate from that. The place is not going to be that expensive and obviously it helps us that we have paid off our own house. In truth we are thinking that it shall not be very long before it is time for us to get a smaller place.

The last of the children are going to be gone in a short time. Read more

The Rain is Not Going to Stop Soon

Written on May 21, 2017 at 4:30 am, by admin

It has been pretty much a monsoon since we got here and so we have not been able to get started on this project. All of my stuff is still waiting to be unpacked. There are four of us living in this house in a nice suburb. All of the stuff we brought along is in this sewa mobil box for Jakarta that we hired. That was a good thing, since we can not get the gear out of the box until we need to use it. Of course we are really worried about it. The stuff that we have in that box is very expensive obviously and the company would have a fit if it went missing on us. However the real thing is that we could not replace it in a reasonable amount of time and it might set this project back for a month while we had to sit around waiting for the stuff to get here.

The rain is not supposed to stop or even slow down for another week, but that is not certain either. Read more

I Wanted to Get Life Insurance

Written on May 19, 2017 at 4:32 am, by admin

When my cousin was diagnosed with cancer, none of us expected her to only live for a few more months. She died right before her 40th birthday, which still shocks all of us to this day. She was the picture of health, so she had never taken out life insurance for herself. As a result, her husband has been struggling since half the income was lost. That got me to thinking not long ago that this story could happen to any one of us. I have my car insurance through the Niceville insurance agency, and I decided to talk with someone there about life insurance too.

Before I did, I went to their website to make sure that they even offered life insurance. When I found out that they did, I took my time reading all of the information about it. Read more

Sometimes You Need to Learn What You Don’t Already Know

Written on May 17, 2017 at 4:30 am, by admin

People are always saying that there are employees who are natural born leaders. I have heard this all throughout life, but what frustrates me is that it is always held up to everyone as the only people worth anything are leaders. In the company I work for, I have never been a manager, and I know the people who make the most money hold those positions. I began reading leadership blogs to try to learn more about what it is that is necessary to lead others. I hoped that maybe some of it would rub off on me so that I could get a coveted management position one day.

I was never someone who likes to follow or lead. I just like to be myself. I always found it stressful to try to tell other people to do, and while I listen to others in the workplace, I also like to do things on my own. But this is not enough to make your paycheck rise to acceptable levels for today’s costs of living. I knew that I needed to do something if I wanted to rise up the ladder with the company that I have been at for so long. Read more

A Workout Designed to Be Tough

Written on May 12, 2017 at 12:31 pm, by admin

I joined the local gym because I wanted to get in even better shape. I was not overweight, but I also wasn’t toned. Working out at the gym helped me some, but I was not pleased with the slow progress. The gym had state of the art equipment, but there was no direction really. No personal trainers were on site to help those of us who were not getting to where we wanted to be. Another guy at the gym told me about a Body Beast review that he had read, and he thought I might be interested in it after hearing me complain about my lack of progress.

I asked him if he was doing it, and he was up front about it being too hard for him to stick with it. Read more

High-End Car Really Grabbed the Attention of My Imagination

Written on May 12, 2017 at 12:31 pm, by admin

I am not likely to ever be able to own one, but the really top-end cars hold an interest to me. For example, it would be really cool to own a 2017 Bugatti. This car tops out at 1,500 horsepower. If you do not understand horsepower and car engines, just suffice it to say that 1,500 is a whole lot! It gets you to 60 miles per hour in less than three seconds, and it tops out at 261 miles per hour. Can you even imagine going half that fast? No, this is not a car for trips to the grocery store. That is, unless the store is on the other side of a race track. Read more

A Highly Durable Club That Improves Your Shots

Written on May 12, 2017 at 12:31 pm, by admin

I always wanted to buy a Callaway forged copper wedge, but didn’t get around to shopping for one until I retired recently. I figured that now that I would be hitting the links two to three times a week, it was time to upgrade my clubs. The old ones I played with for years were looking pretty ratty, and more importantly they were having a negative effect on my game. I bought them about twenty years ago and they are really showing the wear and tear. It was time to upgrade and I decided to start with my wedges.

Wedges are one of the most important clubs you will use in golf, especially if you have the tendency to blunder into every hazard and obstacle on the course. I have long been known as the hazard guy at my club, but I am also good about getting around them with my wedges. That’s why I wanted the copper wedge because these clubs tend to work better than your average wedge that most people would pick up with a standard golf club package. Read more
