I am not a complete car buff, but I do enjoy watching TV shows about the things people can do with a car. I tend to watch the shows where people are rebuilding the older cars. Every now and again, the guys will throw in a useful tip for us viewers that we can use on our own cars. When I was watching one of the car shows a few weeks ago, the mechanic was talking about a car scanner that he uses to perform all kinds of diagnostics on his own car. I thought that this was pretty wild, as I didn’t think anything like that existed for regular guys like me. Continue reading My Car Has Never Been Better
Not having a job has been really rough on me over the last few months. Oh, I have been doing odd jobs here and there to try to make ends meet, but I do not have a full time job to go to 8 hours per day in an office, and that is what I miss. I needed to pay a friend money last week, and I joked that I only had part of the payment to gove to the frint. She in return said that I should use a Paypal Money Adder to generate money in order to do so. I didn’t know it was possible, and mentioned that I would definitely keep it in mind. In the meantime, I needed to spruce up my resume and keep looking for work.
One of the biggest regrets that I have is not getting a degree. Continue reading I Need a Degree and a Job to Do Better in Life
I feel like the last two years have been really rough for me. I’m lucky enough that I still have a roof over my head, but just barely. I am also lucky that I have food to eat, but I can say that I just barely have that, too. So, to try to calm myself and help myself stay in a more calm headspace, I liked to go to Tubidy MP3 for music. Music is a mainstay in my life, and I really need it at all times to help keep my mind at ease and my thoughts better sorted.
Both of my siblings died in the past two years. Continue reading I Need Music to Help Me Feel Better
Snapchat is a great app for staying connected to your friends. It’s a different way of communicating, and much more fun than traditional messaging systems. Rather than texting, which is uses more words than photos, Snapchat encourages users to share photos and videos in short bursts. The app is immensely popular, and most of my friends use it. I recently heard about a Snapchat hack, and decided to learn as much information about it as I could. At first I was a bit skeptical about whether or not it would work, but after visiting the website I learned a lot more about it. It turns out that it’s a real thing.
The great thing about this hack is that you don’t have to have access to person’s phone in order to use it. You can use it remotely from any device. Continue reading Using a Hack to Access Snapchat Accounts
For awhile during college, I was a business major, but I did not really enjoy the coursework very much and I decided to switch out of that major pretty quickly. Maybe it was a mistake, I am not sure. I actually never finished college at all, because I dropped out a few years ago to start my own business. I never learned a lot of things about running a business in college, and I need to find a real paystub maker, because I have no idea how to make a paystub for an employee right now, and that is something that I will have to do by the end of the week.
I am going to try to figure out how to make paystubs correctly with the use of some software to help me out. I don’t think that is how most employers do it, but then again, I do not really know for sure. I did not get very far into my business studies, as i have already mentioned. Anyway, I never really thought that this business would take off like it has. I had no need for employees previously, because there was barely enough work to keep me busy for the first few years, much less enough to require the help of other people.
But things have really changed, and they have done so in short order. I am going to try to get software to help me make the paystubs today, because I want to make sure I have time to learn how to use it correctly, so that I will not have any problems when it is actually time to print the paystubs at the end of the week for my new employees. This is their first week on the job, and it would be pretty awful if I screwed up the paystubs.
I wanted to decorate my bedroom in a new way, but I really had no idea what to do. I decided after some careful thought to paint the walls beige, and then I changed some of my furniture. I kept my bed and dresser, but I got a new makeup table. I also added some paintings that I had done within the lat couple of years. The only thing that needed done after this was something with the floor. I couldn’t afford to carpet it, so I decided to look at rugs for sale instead.
I thought that rugs would look nice anyway because it would be a shame to cover up the wood floors with wall to wall carpeting. They still looked really nice, but that didn’t mean that I was not ready for some kind of change. Continue reading Rugs That Are Too Good to Pass Up
I have been focusing on my ability to work in mobile devices and the operating systems that they use. Right now I am trying to lock down a project idea that is going to be something that might be able to turn a profit. I got this one idea after seeing this guy use these My Cafe cheats. Of course these sorts of things seem to be all over the web, but I personally do not see the point to them. It seems to me that this takes all of the fun out of playing a game. They are not going to like it at the game developer however, which is the big idea that I have. Obviously when you have a game that is played on the web by people who never meet one another, there is going to be a lot of trouble enforcing the rules. Continue reading Working on My Computer Science Paper
I have a beautiful magnolia tree in my backyard. It has these really large white flowers that bloom at the perfect time of year. I love staring out my back window and daydreaming as I stare at the lovely flowers. I have another tree in my backyard that I planted several years ago. I’m not sure what type of tree it is, but it has started to take over my backyard, and cause problems for the magnolia tree. I’ve called tree removal in Nassau County to come in and take care of it. I’m confident that they’ll be able to remove the tree I’m having an issue with, without compromising my favorite tree. Continue reading Maintaining My Beautiful Magnolia Tree
During the process of cutting down a dead tree in my yard, I made a terrible mistake. I cut the tree at angles in an attempt to get it to fall in a certain direction. Unfortunately, I cut the wrong angles, and instead of the tree falling on the ground, it fell on my roof. I had to call a tree removal service to take the tree off my roof and haul it away, which is what I should have done in the first place. After that I arranged for roof installation in Manhattan NY.
I guess it’s a good thing that at a time like this, I don’t have anyone else that lives with me. Continue reading The Day the Tree Fell
We bought ourselves a money pit. Not sure what that means? It means we were young and dumb and bought a house that we were sure that we could fix up in no time. Needless to say it needed a lot more work than we thought it was going to. We were way in over our heads. Our first month into it we realized that the heating unit was a goner. We were going crazy because winter had just started, so I started looking for HVAC services in Manhattan, NY.
Luckily there is a lot of options for these types of services in our area, as it’s a big city. The prices however, aren’t always so kind, especially to a new home owner that spent their very last dime on a house that will likely fall down around us. Continue reading It Was Either That or We Froze!
It seems like whenever someone wants to move, they can’t rely on their friends to help them. I had to move from my apartment to my new house, but everyone I asked for help told me that they were busy that day, which was on a weekend. I didn’t even ask them at the last minute. I asked my friends weeks in advance, and they still couldn’t help me. My only options were trying to do the whole moving task myself, which would have been a massive pain, or using a Singapore movers service to do most of the heavy lifting and transport.
I looked at some reviews to find out which moving service would give me the best results. I could have probably just gone with any moving service and they would have transported all of my items, but I wanted to make sure that they did it with care. I’ve seen too many horror stories about moving companies mishandling people’s items when they move. Continue reading A Moving Company I Can Rely on
Our son began drawing as soon as he could hold a crayon. We noticed early on that he had a natural ability. He was just a child and was drawing things in perspective. He had things such as roadways disappearing into the horizon. He even seemed to naturally understand foreshortening perspective in drawing. Imagine sitting on the floor next to someone with his shoe on a footrest close to your face. The shoe would look big in your eyes, but his head, off in the distance, would appear small. We sent him to a graphic design school in Singapore because he had such natural ability. I have never seen a child understand how foreshortening works in perspective until taught.
I remember a drawing he did with crayons when he was five. It was of a fence and sidewalk. The sidewalk went up over a hill to the horizon. So did the fence. Continue reading Sending Talented Children to Graphic Design School
Actually this is a town or city which is called Wollongong, which is right on the Pacific Ocean just to the South of Sydney in New South Wales, Australia. The people who are wanting me to move there tell me that the government is trying to encourage emigration to the country, you can apply Australia PR for emigration and they will try to let me move. Of course I am going to try to see which way it is best for me. What I can see is that this is a really nice place to live, especially when you compare it to living in the Midwest where I am living right now. Continue reading Thinking of Moving to Sydney
One of the most popular renovating projects is to make a nice outdoor living space. The trend is so popular that outdoor furniture has caught up to consumer demand. Homeowners wanted their furniture outside to be as comfortable as the furniture they have inside and manufacturers complied. Outdoor kitchens can be as well equipped as indoor kitchens with refrigerators and freezers, grills, burners, food prep areas and sinks. Some outdoor spaces are as functional and good looking as indoor spaces, just without the walls. Water features are also popular, but a nice fire pit is usually the central gathering point for an outdoor space.
A nice outdoor living space would have both a water feature and a fire pit. A fountain or waterfall cools the nearby area. A fountain or other moving water feature in a shaded area can be a cool and relaxing spot on the hottest summer day. Continue reading Making Your Own Outdoor Living Space
My friend Merlin and I have known each other for many years. He is one of my best friends. He is like a member of my family. He is a cool person, but sometimes I worry about him. He does not make good decisions in his romantic relationships. He has chosen the wrong women on two occasion. First, he married his first wife at a young age. They tried to stay together, but the marriage failed. He also fell out with his recent girlfriend. He used a kik hacker to find out if his girlfriend Sandra was cheating on him. He learned the ugly truth about his girlfriend.
Merlin and Sandra met in a club five years ago. He was celebrating his successful trucking business. He was the life of the party that night. He was walking through the crowd and he locked eyes on Sandra. He was smitten by her. Merlin fell head over heals with Sandra. They started dating and a couple of years later, they had a son. He was Merlin’s pride and joy. He thought he was on cloud nine with his family, but things were about to turn sour for Merlin.
Recently, Merlin noticed a change in his relationship. Continue reading My Friend Finally Learns the Truth
Trying to do some things by hand can be a bit difficult and time consuming. I tried to make a drawing of a device that I wanted to build, but I wasn’t doing a good job. I kept making mistakes and had to erase nearly every 10 seconds. I decided that it was time to move on to something a bit easier. Some of my friends had been using a program to make CAD files on their computer. These files contain information in the form of a model when they are created. The program that generates these files can make designs easily without the same faults that pencil and paper have.
I downloaded the program that my friends were using and looked at the tutorial for how to use it. It seemed simple enough, and in 10 minutes, I was able to accomplish what was taking me hours with pencil and paper to do. Anytime I made a mistake in the program, all I had to do was click on the undo button and the mistake would be instantly erased. Things were much easier to visualize, and there was even a template to help me along the way.
Since I was done with my design, I started making some more based on things that I had been meaning on drawing but never got around to doing. There was this crazy book shelf design that had been floating around in my head for days, but pencil and paper just wouldn’t do it justice. The book shelf isn’t like a traditional book shelf that sits like a tower. This book shelf is more of a slanted design that leans to the right, but it can also shift to lean to the left. You can even slide the different levels of the shelf in opposite directions to make an alternating pattern.
One of the easiest things you can do when you move into your new home, is to add a security system. For whatever reason, many homeowners forget this but it is a necessary step to protecting your home, your personal property, and your family when they are home. While door locks have improved greatly over the years, offering greater sophistication, they are still possible to bypass. An alarm system gives an additional layer of security to every home for greater peace of mind. Installing home security systems in Sydney is something that is relatively easy to do.
In order to get started with a home installation, the best way to begin is to contact an alarm security company that specializes in home systems. Continue reading Getting a Home Alarm System in Sydney
It was easy enough for me to figure out all of the places that I wanted to apply to for medical school. After all, there are only so many major medical schools in the country that are well known. I wanted to be at one of the well known schools that would help me to get a job anywhere I chose to apply. But after school, it took me awhile to realize which city I wanted to settle in to serve the medical community. In the end, I began looking at apartments for rent in Raleigh NC because that area is known as the Research Triangle. I wanted to be part of a thriving medical community that is making great strides in that arena.
I knew some about the area because I had taken a vacation there once. I had spent a weekend there with an ex-girlfriend. The food was out of this world. Continue reading The Food and Outdoor Life Helped Me to Make My Choice
For reasons that I can’t explain, the red bow tie has become popular again for formal wear. I was never a big fan of bow ties and always preferred to wear a simple neck tie. As I got older, I began to warm up to bow ties a little more, but I still have a preference for neck ties. The red tie does have a certain look that makes it elegant, even though it is a simple color. It’s bold enough to make the wearer stand out without making them too visually striking, which is exactly what a tie should be doing.
A friend of mine bought me a red tie for my birthday from a clothing store. The tie was made out of a fine silk material that was woven tightly. It was the most expensive tie I had ever seen, and this is taking into account neck ties and bow ties. Continue reading People Like the Red Bow Tie
I use my favorite rifle on most of my hunting trips. I take care of it in the field. When I have friends over and we start talking guns, my old rifle usually comes out of the safe and is part of the topic of conversation. The guys can hardly believe it is the gun I take with me on just about every hunting trip because the stock, barrel and fore grip are all in great shape. There are not a bunch of scratches and dings. That is because I always use rifle stock covers. They take the hits and scrapes from trees and other things while I’m out hunting. The wood keeps looking brand new. The covers do such a great job, I have my friends now ordering them for their guns at the same manufacturer I get mine from.
Neoprene is a tough material, and it is soft. It also has a cushiony layer to help protect your guns from impacts as well as scratches. The rifle stock covers I buy are made of neoprene. Continue reading How to Protect a Hunting Rifle in the Field
