I am pretty much ready to get packed up and head back to the Gold Coast. I have been here in Singapore for well over a year now and while it has been a great experience, I am more than ready to see the home folk. The big project that the company has been subcontracting on is called Principal Garden, which is a really large residential project that has just been completed. It consists of four towers which each are 24 stories high. Of course in Singapore you do not really buy a condo, but instead these units are sold as 99 year leases. It seems likes a silly thing to me, but no one here seems to mind all that much when you do business with them. Continue reading
I really felt it was the right time to look into a bunch of different cheap apartments in Stockbridge GA because the rent on my place kept going up and up. When I moved in, the price wasn’t too bad. And I thought that the higher price meant that the landlord had it priced that way because it meant he would be more attentive, but that was not the case. I just knew that I could find a place cheaper with a much better landlord.
I am lucky that this town has a mix of prices. I know that some people in other large cities have to deal with higher cost of living, but my town is full of all sorts of different people and companies with a wide variety of prices. This means that I can afford to be choose. I know that friends of mine live in cities where everything from the cost of food, gas and rent is rather high. Here, the gas is lower priced, the grocery stores are rather expensive, and like I said, the apartments are a mix. It would be great if it would be like that for people everywhere.
I got up early on a Sunday morning and walked down to the corner store for a newspaper. I wanted to take a look at the classified ads as early as possible so that I could see what was available rent-wise. I know that some of the best places, especially those that are inexpensive, can be rented out rather quickly. I circled quite a few places that looked interesting and called them. The first order of business was to find out if they allowed pets. I have a tiny Pomeranian, but she needs a friend. I went to four places that stated that they allow two pets. I Picked the second place that I went to.
Childhood can leave its marks, especially the teen years on some kids. My marks were actually not emotional ones even though I had bad acne. For about five years it was bad no matter what I did. That was before all the modern treatments. Back then the undercurrent of thought was that bad acne was caused by poor hygiene, poor diet or just being poor. Your peers saw you as diseased, and you can imagine how that goes. Still, I did not have the social and emotional scars, but I did need an acne scar treatment for the physical scarring.
You would not think that acne would leave physical scarring on the skin, but it can. The scarring depends on the severity of the acne, and, I suppose, your own ability to heal correctly. Continue reading
Mom always told us when we were teenagers not to go on the roof to sunbathe. We never listened, because of course what teenage girl listens to their mother? The cute boys lived across the street and it was the perfect opportunity to get noticed and to be able to see them even if they didn’t notice us.
Needless to say mom was right, because we ended up needing a roof replacement in Brooklyn NY that summer. There was usually only three of us on that roof, but it was a rare occasion that all five of me and my friends were able to be together for a day at my house. Normally one or two of them had to be off with their parents or in sports or something. Apparently five people on a roof is too much weight, because it collapsed under us that day.
We weren’t fat girls, at least not when we were teenagers. That happened later on in life after having children and getting comfortable in our marriages. Continue reading
When my father was alive, he would come over to visit and point out that I needed to get tree service in Long Island to keep all my trees healthy. I told him that I kept the trees trimmed up myself, but he would point out that I was not trimming them enough. He had some equipment that was good for much heavier trimming. He wold drive home to get it in a huff, and the he would come back and trim the trees even more. He always did a great job, the problem is that I am just really lazy about it.
Dad passed away a few years ago, and I really miss him being gruff about my trees and any other things that I am bad about taking care of. Continue reading
I guess that when I had my roof replaced a few years ago, the contractor who did the job tried to save some money, and to do so, he did not put tar paper on the roof before he put down the shingles. I am not sure if that is a violation of local ordinance, but it has caused a considerable amount of damage to the underlying wooden structure of the roof, and that is something I am pretty upset about. Anyway, I am looking for info on roof repair in Queens and I definitely need to find a contractor that has a reputation for good work because I do not want to go through this same sort of situation again, as it is definitely not a pleasant one.
I am kind of considering exploring my legal rights and if I should maybe sue the last contractor. I have no idea if I have any basis or merit for such a lawsuit though. Continue reading
I spent a lot of time hanging out with my father when I was a kid. He always did things that I found interesting, and he said he loved it when I tagged around with him to talk to him and learn from him. I think it made him feel really good to have a kid who cared about what he was doing. He was an electrician in Passaic County NJ and he liked to show me how he worked while he was doing it sometimes. There were even times that I went to work with him because my mom needed to go on an errand, and dad would “babysit” me while he was working.
Hanging out with dad when he was working was a lot of fun. Sometimes he would show me what he was doing, and I would learn a lot from that. Continue reading
When I decided to create pay stubs online, I had to decide what company to use. Long gone are the days where I will just randomly choose a company and hope that they deliver what they promise. I have been burned too many times in the past, and I knew that I needed to research any companies that I would consider for generating the pay stubs that I needed. When I came across The Pay Stubs, I really liked everything that I read, especially the pricing because it was the most reasonable that I had found.
However, a good price is not enough for a company to get my business. I wanted to find out more about them to make sure this was a company that I would be able to trust. Continue reading
I love my girlfriend Jenny so much. We do not have the perfect relationship, but we always try to make is work. We have had both some good and bad times in the past. At one point, I was convinced that she was actually cheating on me and planned to leave me for another man. I could not believe I was in a painful situation like that. I wanted to figure out what exactly was going on in our relationship. I knew the truth could heal my pain or contribute to it. I did a snap hack on her personal picture account. I thought doing this would set things into perspective.
The first sign I noticed that indicated a fracture in our relationship was our arguments. Jenny and I started to argue like cats and dogs. It just did not make sense. We fought over the smallest things. I remember one bad argument that we had in particular. We had a disagreement about what to do on our anniversary. Continue reading
When computer’s first became available to the large masses, people were buying them as fast as they were being produced. Many people would use a manual or user guide to help them figure out how to use their new machines. If there was a problem, they would have to haul the large unit to a computer company who could fix their computer for them. Today, there are many websites that can help people figure out how to fix their computer glitches. For example, if someone finds a code 0xc0000225 (the drive where windows is installed is locked) then they could search the internet for a site that has a possible solution.
Many people cut and paste the codes that their computers spit out when it is found that there is an error. Continue reading
I was looking to find a new house, or at least my first house of my own. I am renting one right now. I moved there after I got tired of having a lot of noisy neighbors. In fact I used to live in a place where the other tenants seemed to spend a lot of time calling the police on one another. At any rate I found a house with a great location, but there is one big problem with it. The cost of an AC replacement in NYC is what I am really thinking about, because this place does not have a working air conditioner right now. I am sort of wondering how much it is going to cost for me to remove the old system and put in a new one. Continue reading
I have been working for this company that serves as a floral vendor for a chain fo super markets around here, and I want to move up in the company, but I do not really have the skills to do so right now. It is a really good job for someone like myself though and so I want to find out if you are in Norfolk and would like to learn flower arranging where the best place to do that is. I would like to find some sort of school, I guess, that will offer some formal training on how to arrange flowers, so that I can really show the company that I have learned how to arrange flowers properly and been taught how to do that.
I really love flowers, which is why I said that this is a good job for me. It does not pay the best at the moment, but it is something that I really like doing, and so I figure that it is a great job for me. But at the same time, I would like to make more money, and so that is why I am seeking out this training. I hope to get it taken care of as soon as I can, so that I can get a promotion, hopefully, within the company as soon as possible. That is because the sooner I can start to make some more money, the better off I will be.
Of course, everyone wants to make more money. It is just a natural thing. I am no different, and I know that my lack of knowledge about arranging flowers is really holding me back from going furthrer at this company. Since I want to stay at the company, I will do my best to learn more.
When looking for apartments in Raleigh, it is important to remember that is is an area in demand, with many people moving to the Research Triangle area for jobs. Due to this, apartments can be in high demand and it is important to plan your move and where you will live ahead of time with some much needed research. The good news is that there are plenty of apartments for rent in Raleigh NC because of the number of companies based there and the universities in the area. The issue can be the timing of your move, such as if you come to the area after school has begun for the year. Things such as this can affect the supply available in the area, so doing some legwork before you move or even fly out to look at apartments can be very important in finding a nice place to live.
When there is a possibility that options may be limited, looking at larger apartment complexes can be an ideal way to go. Many times they will have availability even when others don’t just because of their size. Continue reading
I have never really considered myself as one who is into home decor a lot, but that changed not that long ago. I was at a friend’s house for the first time, and I really liked the way she had decorated all of her rooms. I actually thought that she had hired a professional until she told me that she had done all of it herself. I was really impressed with how well she was able to match her Asiatic Rugs with the colors and designs of each room. I actually didn’t even know there was a name for her rugs until she told me that they are Asiatic.
The one that really piqued my interest in looking at all of her rugs was the polka dotted doormat that she had. It was just very nice, and I liked how it had oranges mixed in with creams and browns. It just really set the entire tone for her entry way, and that was just the beginning. Continue reading
I always used to laugh at those people who complained about their marriage being on the rocks and not having enough spark in their sex life. I always thought that if two people loved each other, they shouldn’t have any problems having sex with their spouse. I was wrong, and the spark in my marriage was beginning to fade after being married for over 20 years. Sex felt more like a routine, rather than something spontaneous that my wife and I looked forward to having. If it weren’t for the sex aids that we purchased, we would probably be on our way to the divorce court.
The aids weren’t an idea that my wife or I thought of trying. The suggestion to use them came from a long time friends of ours. Continue reading
It is tough picking out a place to live. It was a long and tedious process finding the perfect apartment. We wanted that perfect place. With an apartment, you are committing to at least a year for a lease. I cannot imagine how people can decide on a house with a 30-year mortgage. We had been searching through apartments in Denver CO to find the perfect place for us. We wanted some luxury things and yet have the rent be within our budget. With both of us working, we had a decent amount we could use for a lease, but we did not want to waste a penny of it. Continue reading
When I started looking for an apartment in Florida, I knew that I was going to be pretty picky. I was moving from New York City, and my apartment there was really nice. It came with a lot of amenities like a fitness studio and dry cleaning, and I wanted to live in a similar place in much warmer weather. It did not take me long to find what I wanted. I looked at several different sites, but as soon as I started looking at http://www.themarqhighlandpark.com/, I knew I had found my next home.
I know a lot of people will look at location and floor plans first, but those were not my main concern. I work from home, so I knew that I would be able to move to just about anywhere. As for the floor plan, I knew that if an apartment has the amenities that I want, then the floor plans will be spectacular. Continue reading
I am in the library right now, and I am trying to study but it is quite a bit louder in the library than it usually is, but it is loud and it is making it harder for me to study at the moment. I would like to listen to some music, because I think that would really help me to study better. I am looking into a way to listen to music online for free without having to download any sort of program or software, because I can’t do that on a library computer.
I guess that I really have a problem in that I have a problem concentrating when people are talking in the background. Continue reading
I really wish I could afford a place like my supervisor just moved into. It is called Whitley residences and it is actually within walking distance of the office building, although it is a pretty decent walk and it would take you about twenty minutes to get there by foot. Of course that would be really great, it takes me forever to get to work on a lot of mornings. Singapore is just not a great place for people who like to hit the snooze button on the alarm clock three or four times. You need to get out of bed and leave yourself a bit of time in case the bus runs into a lot of heavy traffic. Continue reading
My neighbor told me not long ago that her work was hiring people. I knew that I would have to start at the bottom there, but I was not concerned about that. It is such a good company, so I was really thankful that she gave me a heads up on it. I knew that I would need to fill out an application, but I also wanted to leave my resume with it. I had no idea how to even make one though, so I went online to see if I could find a resume template.
What I found was even better. I thought I would have to find one and just try to copy it as best as I could, but I actually found a site that has quite a few different resume templates. When I say quite a few, I am actually talking hundreds! I was still feeling a bit overwhelmed because I had no idea how I was going to know which one out of all those hundreds to use. Continue reading
In fact it is likely that we are not going to be here in Turkey a lot longer, the stuff that we have been reporting does not really please the people in charge of the state and in truth Turkey is very far from a free and open society. Freedom of the press is an alien concept to the Premier and the rest of the government. In fact they seem determined to turn this country into a one party state. At the moment I am trying to figure out how to use hgsyukle.com. From what I was told it is supposed to help you get through the toll booths in this country quicker. I think that it allows you to pay the tolls with your mobile phone, so in theory you can just skate right through without doing a lot more than slowing down. I am not sure it works that way, but we are not really happy sitting still. Continue reading
I knew that I was getting a limo for my wedding, but I was not sure which kind. Years ago, there was just one standard type of limo, but that has changed now. There are stretch limos, Hummer limos, bus limos, SUV limos and more, so I had to research the different kinds to know which one I was going to get. I went to http://www.torontolimovip.ca/fleet.html after deciding that I wanted to go with Toronto Limo VIP. I had heard a lot of good things about them, from the variety in their fleet to their prices and the professionalism of the drivers.
I wanted my wedding day to be perfect, so I wanted to go with the best in everything. That is why I went with Toronto Limo VIP. Continue reading
I hate it when companies try to get rid of things that people have already paid for in advance. One company had software available on mobile platforms, but after a while, they took the file down without telling anyone. To make matters worse, those who had already downloaded the program had it deleted from their phones and couldn’t retrieve it from their software libraries. No refunds were offered from the company, which sparked a lot of outrage. Rather than joining the complaints, I looked for a solution. I found a website with free softwares cracks that made it possible to reinstall the software that had been deleted, while keeping the company from deleting it again.
The crack alters the original programming of the software to prevent it from making contact with the company’s software check server. Normally, this server acts like a link between the company and the server to let the company know the status of the software. It is also used to prevent unauthorized copies from being used by those who want to download it from a place other than the official store. With that link severed, users can open the program without the server being contacted, meaning that the company won’t know it is being used.
Putting the cracked version on my phone was pretty easy. I just had to download it to my directory and install it like a normal file. The app started up and everything worked fine. I told everyone else I knew about the crack and they installed it on their phone too. I don’t know if the company has any plans to put the file back up for download on the store again, but until they do, people won’t be relying on them. This has happened too many times with other companies for people to just be patient.
