I Found Help in a Way That I Had Not Heard About Before

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

I would say that my headaches had been happening for about a year-and-a-half. What alarmed me about that is that headaches have been mostly been a rarity for me throughout my life. I had no idea that there is a Campbell chiropractor who can help people be free from the same type of chronic headaches if I was dealing with. I thought they only worked with back problems. This is how I got help with my headaches that I was dealing with on a daily basis.

The first time that I had a major headache a year-and-a-half ago, I actually felt like throwing up. The pain was so strong that I immediately started to worry that something was wrong with me. I almost drove myself to the emergency room. First, I called my mom to tell her what was going on. She told me that I was more than likely suffering from a migraine. (more…)

Fantastic Legal Minds Helped Our Family Find Relief

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

Never having to employ the services of an attorney, I had to do a lot of online research to locate just the right personal injury attorney in Sacramento several months ago after my son was attacked by a couple of kids who live down the street. He was coming home from school, minding his own business, when these two thugs jumped him in an attempt to steal his backpack. I didn’t care at all about the items in his bag, but I cared a lot when I saw the extent of his injuries. He had two black eyes, a split lip, a broken nose, and multiple facial contusions.

We called the police, of course, and they quickly rounded up the two goons responsible for the attack, but it wasn’t enough. (more…)

Do Not Ignore Squeaks Coming from Your Dryer

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017

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. (more…)

Getting Proof of Income for Workers

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

I have a few people who work for me. I don’t pay them under the table, but I don’t do their taxes either. They are contract workers, which means that they get their full pay from me, and then they handle their taxes on their own. I have my own records, but I had never given them anything like proof of income. I just figured that they would be honest about their own taxes, just as I am honest about mine. However, I was told by a good friend that I should do more to protect myself since I don’t always pay with a check.

If I did pay someone in cash, then that person could say that I gave more or less, or they could even say that I did not pay them. That made sense to me, and I decided to research this so I could definitely protect myself. (more…)
