I Am Doing Some Work on the Side

Featured

Of course I have the same boss as I do in the day time, but she is paying me cash for this work. It involves her interest in real estate and I am helping to do some work on this four story building that is not very far from where I live. In fact part of the deal is that she wants me to rent one of the apartments in exchange for the work, but we have not settled that yet. I did some calls for a one time cleaning service for Singapore, since this is a really big job. The place needs a lot of things done to it and the start is going to be to get rid of a lot of debris. There were some squatters in the place while it was empty and they left the place in a terrible mess and in a sickening stench. Continue reading

The Best Company for Exploration Needs

Featured

Our oil company needed new oil exploration technology in the worst way. That was something I noticed right away when I took a position with the firm and went out to check out our gear. I couldn’t believe the equipment this company was using to try and find new oil finds. I hesitate to use the word medieval, but it sure looked that way. The stuff they were using was so out of date that it really was shocking to me. I wondered how they could have possibly stayed in business using all this old junk.

In this day and age you simply must have the best, up to date equipment available. Oil exploration isn’t a game anymore, if it ever was. Back in the old days you could take your time and head out and do some looking and maybe you would find something. The old timers act like it was an almost a supernatural ability to find a new oil field. Continue reading

I Needed a Better Accounting Program

Featured

I am an accountant, and I was frustrated with the accounting software programs that were available to me. I wanted the software to do certain things that it was just not doing, and I had no way of fixing that on my own. I was spending a lot of time by using two different programs, when I just wanted to use one that had the features of both software programs. I decided to do a search for bespoke software development in Chester to see if I could find a company that could customize one of the programs for me. Continue reading

Something Better Always Comes Along

Featured

I heard about the High Park condos for sale, and initially ignored the offer, but one of my friends convinced me to get one. He told me that a condo would be a great place to live and it would be better than where I was living at the time. It’s funny that I didn’t see him signing up to live in a condo, but he did have a point. I was living in a small apartment where I was already running out of living space. The apartment looked old and it wasn’t even in a convenient location for me, as I had to travel an hour and a half to get to work, not counting traffic.

I decided to at least take a look at the condos. I could easily see whether I liked them or not, and if I didn’t, then I could just go back home without committing to anything. As I looked at the condos, I liked them more and more. I kept comparing them to my old apartment and they just made it look like nothing. I had pretty much made up my mind about living there in the first 15 minutes of seeing the condo, but I wanted to stay there just a little longer.

I ended the lease on my old apartment and went right to my new condo. I didn’t even mind that I would have to pack my items and haul them over to the new condo. I happily carried each box downstairs to my car, because the apartment didn’t have a working elevator. The condo was closer to my job, so when I woke up on Monday morning to go to work, it only took me about 30 minutes, with traffic, to get there. I got pretty lucky in getting this place.

Trying to Make Impressive Documents

Featured

I would not really want to compare my boss to the current president of the United States, but there are some similarities. Notably the guy does not seem to like to read very much and it does not seem as though he has an attention span commensurate with the requirements of the job. Of course he is married to the only grand daughter of the guy who founded the company and that is all the qualification that he needs. At any rate I am trying to figure out if we can get better scanner software because of this situation. Continue reading

What We Need is a Sense of Progress

Featured

Have you been looking for a new apartment? How about a new job? With President Trump coming into power we’re finally beginning to see what a president is capable of for job creation. There’s a Great American Wall in our future. A Wall that is going to be so grand, so massive and such a profound undertaking that thousands of people are going to be required to complete it. Everything from traditional laborers, engineers and architects, the demand for people is going to ensure that every one of the Stone Oak Apartments in San Antonio are going to be stuffed full. Texas is going to make so much money off this that they’ll end up filthy rich.

It’s good for the economy. Texas has an immense amount of land that is not being used. Building up that land is going to be important for American economy. Once we cease trade with our Mexican friends to the south and the wall goes up, we’re going to have to bring all the jobs back from the South. Continue reading

In New Mexico to Turn Things Around

Featured

When I moved to New Mexico because of a new job, I thought my life would be like that one television show where the high school teacher starts making blue drugs after he learns that he has cancer. I guess my life wouldn’t be as intense as that, but I hoped for a little action every once in a while. Before moving, I searched for apartments for Rio Rancho NM online and found a great one that would become my new home. I come from up north, so I’m usually used to seeing colder weather. The warmer New Mexico weather takes a little getting used to over time.

Here in New Mexico, I work for a company that handles logistics. They sent me here because they wanted to increase the output of this branch of the company. Continue reading

Needless to say, I take great pride in our nation’s military. Thankfully, my family members all came home safe and sound, but there are a lot of men and women who don’t. That is why I do all I can to help them. When someone asks me what the best veteran charities to donate to are, I always have a ready answer for them. Continue reading

Cheap Rent for Houston Apartments

Featured

I am in a situation where I have to look for a new apartment soon, and I really do not want to have to spend too much time finding a place to live, so I am going to go ahead and cut out looking at apartments that I know that I will not be able to afford. I am looking at apartments for rent in Houston TX in particular, because that is where I live and work, and speaking of work, I would like to find an apartment that is somewhat close to where I work. I really do not like to drive very far to go to work, as I find it to be quite annoying. I am barely awake when I drive to work in the morning, and so the longer I have to drive, the worse it feels to go through that.

I have about two weeks to find a new place to live. That is how long my roommate has given me to move out, and so I am going to have to go by that, or otherwise, she is going to file an eviction notice. I do not really have to deal with any legal proceedings so I plan to just move out as I was told to do and avoid any conflict. I really do not like conflict, and while I wish I di not have to look for a new place to live right now, I do not have a choice about it, and I am not going to complain. I wish I could move somewhere else, but Houston is where I am going to live for the time being. It is not my favorite place, but it is home, and I guess there is something to be said for that. So a single bedroom apartment is what I need.

Figuring out How to Hack Facebook

Featured

I know this sounds pretty bad, but I want to learn how to hack Facebook, so that I can see if my wife is talking to any other guys on her Facebook account. For awhile now, I have felt that she is growing more distant from me, and it kind of seems like it might be because she is having an affair with some other guy, behind my back. If that is what is going on, I want to find out, regardless of how much it is going to hurt me to find out. I do not think that I could ever forgive her if she was cheating on me, but I do not want to remain ignorant.

Part of me feels kind of bad, for suspecting her of something as serious as this. Continue reading

There Are a Few Things That I Have Been Saving Money for

After living with roommates for many years, I finally moved out on my own earlier this year. Previously I was living with three other people. Two people were simply moving back home after graduation. The third person still wanted a roommate, but she has always been a troublemaker, so I decided to strike out on my own instead. Because I still do not have a TV for my new place, I’m watching the Cyber Monday TV listings for 2017 very closely because I hope to get one for a good price that I can afford. Things have been really tight for me now that I am living by myself, and I have not purchased a television prior to now because paying full price just was not possible. Continue reading

People Really Love Store Payment Options

My wife and I opened our own store that sells electronics to people in our neighborhood. I was worried about having a store like this because I thought it would be an easy target for thieves, but so far no one has tried to steal from it. During the early days of the store, there weren’t many customers coming in, and my wife suggested I look into consumer financing companies so that people would be more likely to spend money on our electronics. I didn’t see the link between financing and more customers, but to my wife it was clear.

The explanation that my wife gave me was that people would be more likely to buy from our store if they knew they could make partial payments for the items. Since not everyone has the money needed to buy our electronics for the upfront asking price, they may be able to pay in increments until the total cost has been covered and they own it outright. I contacted one company and set up a system with them for customers to pay with, and made some new advertisements to tell people that we had this option available at our store.

One day after the new ads went in place, people came to the store in droves. They were asking about all of the popular electronics that we had for sale and wanted to open up payment plans with us. It was like nothing I’ve ever seen before. While it was nice to see all of these people coming to the store, I was worried that some of them wouldn’t be able to actually pay for what they were buying at the time. My wife told me not to worry about that, because one way or another, we would get our money, even if they decided that they didn’t want to continue paying.

Playing Poker Online is Great

There is something really nice about a good hand of poker. The intrigue of wondering what others have, the expertise of knowing which cards to throw down and which to hold, and the ecstasy of winning a hand, and therefor the pot. Well, there is just not much else like that, especially when the pot is big. Poker in Indonesia can be played in many different ways. I have played poker with my family around the kitchen table, with my buddies while sharing a drink, and with friends at the casinos. What I had not done was try online poker, but that changed not that long ago.

It was not that I had anything against playing poker online. It seemed like a fine way to spend time enjoying something so popular. I just was more of a social poker player. A good friend of mine told me to give it a try though, and he predicted that I would be as excited about the online poker games as I was the games with friends. I did not think that was possible, but lo and behold, he was telling me the truth. Continue reading

It’s a Must to Show People How Much They Are Appreciated

I worked for a lot of companies that didn’t really seem to care about their employees over the years. So, as someone who has gone on to start a business, I’ve tried to do what I can to show my employees how much they are a valued part of the company. We have hosted all sorts of retreats and corporate training in Singapore for our hard workers. Not only do they gain valuable insight into how to do their jobs better, but they also get to have some time off in a beautiful location. It’s a win-win for everyone and the company itself.

The last training retreat that we held was a really nice one. Not everyone has the extra time to take a personal vacation. People have bills to pay of all kinds. People have children to take care of. But when the business you work for pays for all your accommodations, food, transportation, etc, it sure makes things easier. Continue reading

Using Esri ArcGIS Mapping for My Job

Drilling is a big thing now that the Marcellus Shale project in North America is super active. Most people do not even pay much attention to the massive pipeline infrastructure that is being built to pipe huge quantities of natural gas that exist in the United States right under our feet. There is so much gas that it won’t be long until there are a lot more cars powered by NG (natural gas). I work using Esri ArcGIS software on maps to coordinate drilling projects. There is a lot of work right now for geologists like me.

I have been noticing a lot more commercial trucks and buses that have the symbols on them that indicate they are fueled by NG, and I think of all the work that goes into getting that fuel out of the ground. We have a lot of drilling going on in the area I live. Continue reading

More Soft Toys for the Collection

I’m a huge collector of plush toys. If it exists, then more than likely I have a plush toy of it. I’ve got plush toys from many franchises, including things that aren’t normally associated with them. For example, I have a toy from a serious crime drama. The toy has the main character making a scowling face with huge eyes, My most recent toy acquisition was a smiley face Pokemon toy. Ever since Pokemon was introduced, I’ve loved the series and the cute animals that come from it. Every couple of years more animals get added to the series, which means more for me to collect.

When you have as many plush toys as I do, you have to regularly vacuum them to keep them clean. In a way, it’s kind of like taking care of pets, except I don’t have to feed them. I arrange the toys on my shelves and even have some on my bed. I find the toys comforting when I have trouble getting to sleep. I just hold one or two and count backwards from 100 and I fall right asleep. The soft body of the toys really helps with this.

In a couple of weeks, a few more toys will be released to the public. I plan on being one of the first ones to get them. The demand for these toys is always pretty high when they are first released, and usually they become sold out after only being on the market for a few hours. They eventually become back in stock again, but this can take a while, depending on when the supplier provides the stores with more stock, and how fast they can make them. There are over 800 creatures now, so I’ll be collecting these toys until the end of time.

Replacing the Roof Was a Snap

I needed a roof installation in Brooklyn NY because the one I have now hadn’t even been looked at in at least a decade. That is a serious issue because roofs that aren’t replaced tend to leak sooner rather than later. A leaky roof can cause all sorts of problems for a structure. You can get a mold problem, for example, or the water can cause damage to the underlying structural supports. In the worst case scenario a building can collapse if the roof hasn’t been replaced. Ten years is way too long to wait so I knew I needed an inspection and likely a total replacement.

I asked around and looked online and found a great company with a lot of experienced roofers. They’ve worked on all sorts of roofs under all sorts of conditions so I figured they would easily be able to ascertain whether I needed some help. Sure enough the guy who came out to take a look immediately could tell that the whole thing had to go. He pointed out the severe weathering and cracks and said a total replacement would be the best option. Fortunately my insurance will pay for it.

I expected I would have to live through a week of non-stop thumps coming from the roofers tossing stuff around and hammering in the new roof, but the whole job only took a couple of days. I was pretty impressed. I think the people I had before were just lazy because it took them forever. These guys wasted little time getting the job done. I was even more impressed when I saw them walking around and picking up their mess. They even picked up all the roofing nails they tossed off the building. It’s great to see companies still doing good work in this country.

Giving Life to the Car

Many years ago when I was a kid, I saw a show about a man who hosted a television show about tools. The man was clumsy sometimes and and he would cause all kinds of accidents on the set and in his home. This man had a project that he was working on at one point in the how, which was a hot rod. He collected parts and built a frame and eventually he put the whole thing together. I wanted to build my own hot rod and I used the funds from my Ewen Chia marketing to make it possible.

Before building the hot rod, I had to do a lot of research on what kinds of parts to put into it. Continue reading

What I Didn’t Know Hurt Me

Years ago, when I started my new career choice, I was full of energy and fight. I had heard that you could have a variety of online businesses selling interesting products and make a lot of money. For some people that was true, but for me, I didn’t know what I was doing and I made some major mistakes. I thought I knew it all, but I clearly did not by the looks of my almost-empty bank account. Desperate, I began looking online for some help, and that is when I learned about Ewen Chia who clearly learned how to avoid the mistakes I was making with Internet marketing.

When I found out that he had a book, I rushed to buy it and devoured it just on reading all day and through the night. I found myself shaking my head repeatedly as I read what he had to say. Continue reading

Brand Your Business Without Trying Too Hard

Marketing a website online takes a lot more work than the average new business owner often believes. While having a physical store front is one of the easiest methods to spread the word about your website or mobile application, starting with nothing but a digital presence (especially a brand new one) is without a doubt a difficult place to start. Of course, after reading about the Ewen Chia review it can seem pretty easy – which is both true and not. Some businesses simply luck out and are able to go ‘viral’ with marketing or on social media but this isn’t always the case.

When I first started my online business I had nothing to work with. I had no brand established. Continue reading

I Can’t Wait to Do My Black Friday Shopping

I wanted to find the best Black Friday online deals so I did what I normally do when I want to find out something. I just did a simple search on the best Black Friday sites, and I was able to find a site that is exactly what I am looking for. While it is a little too early for Black Friday ads just yet, it is still has a lot of information and savings on it already. It has a lot of major retailers on it, ones like Amazon, Sears, Walmart, and Best Buy, just to name a few.

While their Black Friday ads are going to be incredible to look at, there are still some deals available now, leading up to the best shopping day, for me at least. Since they are already offering some sale prices, I figured these things would not be on their Black Friday ads, so I was able to take advantage of some good deals made better with the coupons that were on this site.

New Launch Condo Availability in Singapore

I am interested in learning more about a new condo launch in Singapore and I hope to buy a condo there as soon as the property launches. I have heard a bit about the place in the past, but since it was still going to be awhile before it actually launched and you could buy a condo there, I put off actually finding out more information. But now that the launch is looming, I think it would be a good idea for me to learn more and to make sure that I actually want to buy a condo at this location.

I am pretty sure that this is the place that I want to get a new condo, but it is a big decision, as you might guess. It is not every day that you buy a condo and so it is a good idea to make sure that you are absolutely certain that you want to buy it. I think that is a good idea, but anyway, I am going to start searching for more information on the internet, as that seems like a good place to start my search for information.

I have wanted to buy a new condo for a number of years but I have been putting it off until I found a place that I really liked. I do not like my current place very much and so I did not want to make the same mistake again and buy another condo that I would not really enjoy living in. I am more than ready to move out of this current condo, but again, I have to find the right situation before I pull the trigger. So I am going to spend some time learning more about this area and maybe I can find someone to contact and ask some questions.

A Better Way to Shop at Home

Are you on the fence about buying a new TV this year? Maybe you’re torn between that Emerson or the Sony? I won’t argue that brand names often offer higher quality goods than your average off brand but it’s not hard to find high quality, relatively unknown brands offering sweet deals. This is generally the case for tv deals for Cyber Monday 2015. This is when you’re going to find amazing deals on all sorts of electronics. Whether they’re a Sony or an Emerson, they’re going to be on sale right from the comfort of your own home. Continue reading

Filtered Water Without Any Traces

I’ve used many filters that claim to be the best home water filter on the market. I don’t have some kind of fancy machine to test the contents of the water I drink like the experts do, but I do have eyes, and whenever I would use the water filters, I would always find pieces of material in my water. These pieces of material didn’t appear when I didn’t use the filter, so the only place they could have possibly come from would have been the filters. Each time I changed filters, the pieces still appeared, and I didn’t want to risk drinking the water.

I figured out that the pieces were indeed coming from the filters. The pieces were actually from the internals of the filters that get rid of microorganisms and chemicals. These pieces were harmless, but they shouldn’t have been appearing in the water after the filtration process. Continue reading

We Need More Cleaning Robots

I’ve seen a lot of absurd, random gadgets but the robot vacuum for dog hair has to be one of the more ridiculous devices that I’ve seen in recent times. Don’t get me wrong; pet hair can be a serious problem when you have a large dog that sheds or multiple animals that all shed. For someone who suffers from allergies like myself, animal dander and hair can be a serious issue. Do I really need a robotic vacuum? I don’t think so – why not get something that already exists and does its job well enough without buying into a specialty device?

That’s not to dismiss the idea if you’re someone who does enjoy the idea of niche products. I spend money on more absurd things myself. Personally, I love the idea of robotic vacuums and I use my Roomba quite a bit. Continue reading

Best Local Satellite Television Deals

I just moved into a new apartment, so I am trying to get some things set up. I have to get some things set up, and it is probably going to take a few weeks, before I am all unpacked. I am dreading the task of unpacking, and trying to get everything situated. It is quite a daunting task. Anyway, I would like to get television hooked up soon, and I think that looking for local satellite tv deals would be a good idea. I have wanted to give some sort of satellite television service a try for years, but it was not available where I used to live, due to the fact that the house was located in a valley, where satellite reception was not really possible.

I have been told that going with satellite television is the best way to gain access to a large number of HD channels. I really do not want to watch television programming in anything less than high definition quality. I feel like it is probably bad for your eyes, and that is one of the reason why I have purchased a larger television as well. I do not really have any evidence to back up my assertion, but I think that it is true, and that is good enough for me.

Anyway, I will look at the different deals that are available, and try to pick one that works best for my level of income. Hopefully, I will be able to pick a television package that includes channels I want to have. I am a bit of a television junkie, and I know that I spend too much of my time watching TV shows. It does not interfere with my life that much though, so it is not something I am concerned with currently.

Problem Fixing a Computer File

Where can I find a alternative fix for the regservo.exe file? I need to find a way to fix this file, so that I can use a utility that is important for the upkeep of my computer, but it does not work right now, and will not work, until I am ale to figure out a way to fix the file. I am not sure what I should do, or what is wrong with the file. I just keep getting error messages pointing to that file, when I run the application that is attached to the file. It is kind of annoying, and I hope to resolve the issue soon.

I have already looked up info for how to fix it, and I am pretty sure that i followed all of the directions exactly. Unfortunately, it did not fix my problem, and I am still getting the same error message. I actually went through all of the steps in the fix about four times, and tried restarting my computer after each attempt. None of that has done anything to fix my problem, so it might be a bit more complicated.

Since this method for fixing my issue has failed, it would be a good idea for me to try to find another way to fix the problem. I wonder if I could just completely uninstall the program that uses the file, and then reinstall it. That might be a bit of a hassle, but if has the potential to work, then it might be my best bet. I am going to do another search, to see if I can find another way of fixing the problem, before I end up doing that. I hope I can find a solution that works soon, because I really want to run this program.

A Quality Paint Job on Her House

When my uncle died unexpectedly a few years ago, he was in the middle of remodeling his house. I tried to help my aunt with some of the work, but there were a few things that I was not able to do.

Moving out to the Waterfront

I would not have thought about this before, but I found a somewhat odd place to live. It is a barge that has been converted into a home. It is tied up in a very calm little cove in between two docks it barely fits between. The thing is not perfect by any means, but for the price it is quite nice. I need to find some direct tv deals before football season, but that is about the only thing it lacks right now. The internet works just fine now. I already have a wireless internet service and I tested it down there, not a problem. So all I need is to get the TV hooked up to a satellite tv programming source. Continue reading

Getting a Lightweight Treadmill to Use at Home

We were looking for a small treadmill that weighed less than 50 pounds, but we wanted one that could take rigorous daily use. I always joke with people that some exercise equipment lasts so long and even looks great when it gets into garage sales because people never use it after a couple of tries. We are either walking outdoors or on a treadmill. We do it every single day without fail unless we are sick or there are extenuating circumstances. I went to bestportabletreadmill.com and found a very nice small and perfectly functional treadmill that was under the max weight limit we set.

Our old treadmill was very heavy. Continue reading

How Much Does It is Cost to Get an Alarm System

I have been checking out a few home security companies on the web and trying to figure out what sort of alarm I need and I can afford. My issues are different from most people, because I am going to be out of the house for long periods of time and no one is going to be there. I might be gone for a week or two at any time, that is just the nature of my job. I go where the company tells me to go and that is part of it. It is not my favorite thing in the world, but I get paid pretty well and this is just par for the course. You have to figure out what makes sense for you and what it is worth. I am thinking about a really good monitoring system right now. Of course you can get systems which do a lot more than what I need.

What would really make a lot of sense for me is something that controls the energy consumption at my house. For instance I might be out of the house for a week and it could be as cold as ice in that house. If I am out of the the picture I shall not care if the house is too hot or too cold for any people to enjoy being in it. After by the time I got through the front door it is nice if it is pleasantly cozy. You can have a system which does all sorts of things like that, but I am sure that you have to be willing to pay for it if you want it to work like that. Obviously the thing has to go through an app so that you can control it by a smart phone.

Going with DirecTV Was the Best Choice for Us

It has been over a year since we have had our DirecTV installed. We had gone without TV service for about a year. We were only using a streaming service to watch the last seasons of some favorite shows and to watch some old TV shows. We really missed the local news. We signed up for the satellite service because of the great price they had for us. Yes, we had to agree to keep it for a specified length of time but that was okay. We got a great price having two TVs hooked up.

The picture was nice and clear on our old TV set. You know, the big ones that weigh about a 100 pounds and have that big glass tube. Shortly after we got DirecTV, we got an HD big screen TV. Satellite television service looks great on a big screen. Having a whole lot of High-Definition channels to watch is nice too. Continue reading

Been Messing with This Old Traction Engine

I knew my grandfather had a bunch of weird stuff, but it has been a long time since I have been down to see him and he has gotten a lot worse about buying random stuff. It is his hobby, but the stuff has gotten bigger and more random. In this case it is a piece of agricultural equipment that must be a hundred and fifty years old. I took a picture of it and sent it to a friend of mine who does furnace repair in Bergen County NJ. He had only a basic idea of what it was, because it is not something that you see any more and not something that was very common even when they made them. It is called a traction engine and basically that means that it is a mobile steam engine. Continue reading

Best Deals for Satellite Television Through Direct TV

I have finally made the decision to switch away from cable, and to start to use Direct TV. I have seen a lot of commercials about doing so, but I do not think that they led me to the conclusion that I should switch. I would like to think that I am in control of my own decisions, but I will admit that the commercials probably influenced me to some extent. Anyway, I want to find information about satellite direct tv and the prices that they are offering for their various packages.

I am not even sure that I am eligible to get the service, because there are a lot of trees around my house, and I kind of live down in a valley. Continue reading

Great Condo Locations in Miami

I am hoping to buy a winter residence, and a place to go on vacation, in Miami, in the near future, because I have always wanted to have a house in Florida, and I am now at a place in my life where I am going to be able to afford to make that happen. Right now, I am looking for great places to live in Miami, and I think that I might look into biscayne beach condos in miami as I have heard that is a pretty nice place to live.

I like that beach, and I have actually been there a couple of times before, even though I have only been to Miami a handful of times in my life to begin with. Continue reading

Looking at Getting the Big TV Package

If you go to Directv’s site and look at the cost of the Directv packages, then it is easy to see that you can spend a ton of money on them. If you get the Premier Packages, but without local channels, that costs you around a hundred and twenty eight bucks per month. That is a lot of money obviously, but in this case we would be splitting the cost three ways and the three of us are actually getting a really good deal. I went to this party about a month or so back and I met this girl who lived in the area. We were talking about normal stuff and for some reason I told her that I was paying way too much for my one bedroom apartment. She was actually a real estate lady and that was why I was talking about rent and so forth. Of course it was a party, she was a good looking young woman and while I did want to save money on my rent, that was not why I was talking to her.

At any rate she called me back up the next day. I would have been a lot more excited if I had thought it was more than business, but at rate she showed me this huge house. The rent on it was the same as what I was paying on my apartment. I immediately thought to myself that three or four people could easily reside in this house. What I was really thinking was that I could rent the place and then sublet it at a price where I was paying a fifth as much rent as I had been. I could have tried that as well, but instead I split the actual cost with two of my buddies.

Maintaining the Upkeep of Our Homes

It’s time to start taking an account for what kind of upkeep needs to be done for our homes. It’s been a fairly rough year thanks to this violent weather we have been experiencing which means our homes have been taken on some serious wear and tear. Winter is no joke lately. We’re seeing some intense ice storms with impressive ice accumulations as well as snow on top of that. Throw in a good mix of a Polar Vortex or two and our homes are groaning in protest. I’ve already called a boiler repair in Hudson County NJ to take a closer look at my boiler before it hits.

Last year I approached winter with an almost arrogant nonchalant attitude and I paid the price for my laziness. Continue reading

Great Deals on Offshore VPS

I am going to start a new business soon, or at least, that is my desire. I am a bit worried about getting hosting for the website of this company within the country that I live in, because the nature of the business may be considered to be a bit of a legal grey area. I do not think it is actually illegal, but I would rather not take any sorts of chances with regards to the law. That is why I am looking into buying a offshore vps in order to the host the website for the company.

The company is going to be based pretty much entirely on the Internet, and I think that will lead to it making a lot more money than it could any other way. Continue reading

Figuring out How to Hack Facebook

I know this sounds pretty bad, but I want to learn how to hack Facebook, so that I can see if my wife is talking to any other guys on her Facebook account. For awhile now, I have felt that she is growing more distant from me, and it kind of seems like it might be because she is having an affair with some other guy, behind my back. If that is what is going on, I want to find out, regardless of how much it is going to hurt me to find out. I do not think that I could ever forgive her if she was cheating on me, but I do not want to remain ignorant.

Part of me feels kind of bad, for suspecting her of something as serious as this.
