She Cleaned My House Perfectly

November 24th, 2017

Even though the house I was moving into was clean, I knew that I wanted to have it professionally cleaned. One of the selling points for the rental was that it was move in ready, but when I went to look at it in person I could see that it was done quickly. It looked okay enough, but I wanted it to look great rather than just okay. I went online to find a company that handles move in cleaning for Singapore, and I just hoped that I would be able to find someone to do it the same week.

I didn’t mind if I had to call a few different companies to make this happen because it was still going to be faster than if I had to do it myself. It would have to wait for a day off, and I as hoping to use my days off to get everything moved in and situated. The company that I called first was able to get someone in there no matter what day it was, even the next day. I really appreciate a company that can provide immediate services, so I went with them.

Painting a House Made My Shoulder and Neck Hurt More Than I Could Take

November 9th, 2017

I told them I could paint the entire house before they moved in just for the cost of the paint. It was a gift for a friend who bought an old house. It needed a few things, and the minor renovations left it in need of a new paint job inside. I paint for a living, but was doing this on my own after work and on my days off. I paint fast, but this extra workload had me visiting a chiropractor in Camas.

The walls are plaster, and they had a bunch of hairline cracks. I fixed all of that and patched up a couple of spots where the electricians and plumbers knocked some plaster loose. Continue Reading »


I Just Want a Bigger TV

October 7th, 2017

I cannot wait to compare Cyber Monday TV deals this year. Every year, I say that I am going to get a new TV on Black Friday, and then I end up missing out because I just don’t get up on time. I end up staying up late with family, laughing, eating and watching football, and I simply don’t want to get up. This year is going to be different though because I am finally going to take advantage of Cyber Monday deals. Naturally, I have heard of Cyber Monday before. I think a person has to be living under a rock to not have heard the term. Continue Reading »


An Apartment Secured Ahead of Time

August 29th, 2017

The last minute dash for college students to find a place to live is going on, and as I’m watching people panic, I’m glad that I was able to find a good apartment ahead of time. I found my apartment through a website and signed a lease for it during the middle of the summer. I knew that when it came time for school to start, all of the other students who procrastinated would be running around trying to get something, so I did what I could to avoid that. Having lived on campus for a couple of years and in an apartment the previous year, I know how rough things can get when it comes to student housing.

In my first two years, when I tried to make housing arrangements, the housing website was slow for me and would fail to load when I wanted to make a selection. By the time the website worked properly, all of the good selections were gone, leaving me with the choice of a room in one of the older, less appealing dorms. No one wants to live in these dorms because they look so ancient compared to the newer ones, and they aren’t in the most optimal spots on campus.

Granted, living off campus means that all of the on campus spots are farther away, but the apartment is much better than anything the dorms could ever offer. I also have the place all to myself, meaning that I’m not forced to live with any annoying roommates. My sophomore roommate was such a pain that I would stay out of the room as much as possible, only really coming back to go to sleep and bathe. Of the college memories that I would like to forget, all of the ones with him are at the top of the list.


I Think My Insurance Company is Going Under

March 30th, 2017

I just got back from the doctor office a couple of hours ago. They gave me a lot of problems about my insurance, apparently the people that my boss uses have a bad reputation in this part of the world. Obviously it is not like I want to pay for things that they are supposed to pay for, but that is sort of the way that it looks. It is pretty disgusting after awhile. Every year for as long as I can recall I never manage to get the insurance company to pay for anything an I pay them a ton of money out of my paycheck every week. Continue Reading »


Going All out for Valentine’s Day

February 15th, 2017

It is not as though I am in trouble with Annie, but at the same time I do not think a few brownie points would hurt me. Forgetting to get flowers on Valentine’s day is a disaster obviously, but I am going to go in the opposite direction and really do the night right. Of course I am not planning to go broke, so when I think about it I want to make wise decisions. I have been getting cost estimates on renting a limo in Toronto, but that is something which is not so simple. Those guys really want to get you pinned down. They want to know exactly what you want and when you want it. Continue Reading »


Getting My Product Idea Made out of Aluminum Extruded Parts

January 29th, 2017

I got an idea for a product. I made a prototype in my garage. I formed it by welding some aluminum together, but in order for it to be profitable in manufacturing, I would have to find the best of the aluminum extrusion manufacturers to make it. The main component of my product was made out of aluminum. I liked the lightweight feel and the bright look of the metal. I could have probably chosen to make it out of a tough polymer, but metal seemed to be a better choice. It did not increase the cost, and consumer value would be higher because it was a metal product and not made of plastic.

Aluminum extrusion manufacturers could turn out a large volume of my product in a very short time. We would assemble them back at a place I leased. Continue Reading »


I Felt It Was Time to Do Something Bit for Myself

November 26th, 2016

It is not every day that you stumble across the website for a really cool company that actually leases out party buses, or so that’s what I thought. I had never heard about them before, but apparently, many people in my city have. After telling people I was thinking of renting one, a lot of people mentioned that they had been invited to a party bus event before and had a lot of fun. That was what made me decided to go ahead and do it. While so many people had said they had done it once before, most people hold their events in some sort of everyday building, and this would give everyone a chance to have fun once again.

The big occasion was that I was turning 50 years old. Continue Reading »


Working on the Holiday Plans

October 26th, 2016

I just started to plan my next holiday, although I am really not so sure that I am going to go through with the idea that I had at first. It is going to be a joint decision obviously and the truth is that Emily has different ideas than I do. In fact I am not so sure that she is going to consider that I really get a big voice in the matter. I have been looking for the UK’s best casino no deposit bonus and how hard it is going to be for me to control the urge to gamble more than I should. Obviously you have to figure out a budget and stay within it. In theory there is a chance that you could walk out with as much money as you walked in with, but that is not all that likely. There is a reason why those casinos are so big and shiny. The house always has the edge and they know it all too well. Continue Reading »


Being in Love is Amazing

October 21st, 2016

I was wondering one day who will marry Elsy El-Chayeb. It is a common enough thing to wonder about. Maybe not her specifically, but to wonder when people you know and people you only know because they are famous will partner up with someone. I was curious because I had just gotten engaged myself, and it made me think of some of the people I have seen online. I have seen her on social media, and I have been impressed with what a carefree spirit she seems to be, so naturally I hope that she gets her happily ever just like I am getting mine.

The reason I even know who she is is because of the online marketer I have used in the past. Continue Reading »


Finally Making My Business Grow

October 21st, 2016

I have run my own business for years now and I thought I did just fine the way I was doing things as far as marketing. I was making a reasonable amount of money and I was living a frugal but comfortable existence. Then one day I met a man who was in the same business as me, for a shorter amount of time. He was making almost triple what I was and I couldn’t figure out how he was doing so well. I ended up just asking him and he told me about online marketing in Charlotte that had worked wonders for him.

I was unsure what to expect from the agency he recommended so I called up and asked to set up a meeting and find a plan of action for my company. Continue Reading »


A Pay Stub Maker Showing Deductions

October 18th, 2016

My neighbor started mowing my lawn last year for 40 dollars a week. That is a great price considering how big my yard is, and I really appreciated the break he was giving me. At the beginning of this season, he told me he would not be able to cut it though because his mower had finally broken down over the winter. I knew that he depended on the money from me and others on the block, so I made a deal with him. First, I went online to look for a paystub maker because I wanted to be sure that I would have the tools I needed to do this.

I then told him that I would buy him the new mower that he needed. It would cost about 300 dollars, but he was just not able to do that upfront on his own. I explained that I would still pay him to do my lawn, but I would also deduct 30 dollars per week for 10 weeks to pay for the mower. Continue Reading »


You Can Get an IPhone Official Unlock on Your Phone

October 13th, 2016

My aunt gave me her old iPhone when she got a new one. She buys new stuff all the time. Her phone was not even a year old. She is very fashion oriented, and she found out they had an iPhone in a color she liked better. I was really happy when she gave me the old one. She said it was clear to be activated according to her carrier. However, I had to get an iPhone official unlock on it to get it to work on our carrier. We use a different cell phone company than she does. The technology is the same, just a different carrier. Her carrier used to use a lot of CDMA devices, but the iPhone is a GSM phone, so it should work fine on our carrier by only plugging in my SIM card.

I found out that Apple is behind the locking of the phone. They make it so you cannot do anything to use an iPhone on a different carrier for a couple of years. Continue Reading »


Making the Most of Your Email Marketing Campaigns

October 4th, 2016

It is tough to keep your edge when it comes to email marketing. People have their inboxes inundated with stuff from companies.

People are busy, and some people have only a certain tolerance for the number of emails they receive from you. Wow! How do you find a balance? Well, using the best email marketing software you can find helps.

The diagnostics of how your customers are responding to your emails will teach you a lot about your marketing plans. You will learn about seasonal variances as well as how your presentation changes the responses. Continue Reading »


Getting Eyebrow Embroidery Done Reminds Me a Little of Permanent Makeup

September 26th, 2016

There are people who get permanent makeup done. Not me! What is fashionable changes too much. I could not imagine having makeup tattooed on me. No one wants to wear the same eyeshadow year round! I did, however, give eyebrow embroidery a try. It can last up to two years or a little longer. However, there are not any major fashion shifts in eyebrows in a two year span. This makes it fashionably safe to get eyebrow embroidery done. I am amazed at how it can make your eyebrows look more full and shapely.

I know you can just draw them on with an eyebrow pencil. However, that technique is very obvious. It is something my grandmother does, and it is not for me. Continue Reading »


Spreadsheet for RCC Slab Design

September 8th, 2016

I recently graduated from college with a degree in civil engineering, and much to my surprise I found a job working at a civil engineering firm in town within a couple of weeks of graduating. I didn’t think I would get the job, but I just applied to it so I could tell my parents I was already looking for a job. They have me working on some projects while I am still unfamiliar with a lot of the software they use. Currently I am trying to find an rcc slab design excel spreadsheet that is set up to make some calculations that I am going to need for a project that I have started working on.

I am not really that familiar with this type of calculation, even though I am pretty sure I could figure it out. But figuring out the math involved in a certain calculation is not really that important to my job, if I can figure a way to accurately get the numbers from some other source. After all, I am an engineer and not a mathematician or a physicist. But anyway, I am not sure where to look for this spreadsheet that I need. I was hoping it would be contained in the resource library that we have on our work computers, but I couldn’t seem to find it.

Of course, I am still getting used to the process of navigating that resource library and there are some things that are organized in a way that does not make a lot of sense to me yet. So I guess it is possible that it is actually in there and I Just did not see it. I’m not going to keep looking though and instead I am going to search online to see if I can find it.


How to Grow a Portfolio of Success in Music Production

September 5th, 2016

There are musicians, and there are those who produce the music. You can have all kinds of people in a room that play music, but they are only a band or orchestra when they are playing together. Musicians who record their music need music producers to get the sound right on the records. You do not learn this stuff by accident. You go to a good music production school to learn it. This is where you learn everything from engineering sound to the business side of producing.

So many young adults want to be movie stars, sports stars or musicians. They imagine a grand life being rich and not having to do much to earn it. That is not how it works even for the stars. They work hard. Continue Reading »


Moving Companies Based in Singapore

September 4th, 2016

I am going to be moving pretty soon, and we actually were able to buy a house. This is the biggest accomplishment of my life, and it is even bigger than graduating from college. It is just so hard to be able to save up enough money to afford a house in a country like Singapore, that has so little available land for development. But it is a goal I have always had and so I need to hire home movers in Singapore to help us with the process of moving to our new house, because we are going to want to start living in the new place as soon as possible, and I know it is going to take weeks for us to move all of our stuff, if we were to do it all by ourselves.

My wife and I just do not have a lot of free time, because we are constantly so busy with our jobs, that it leaves precious little time for other things. Continue Reading »


Migrate to New Zealand for World Class Healthcare and Educational Programs

September 3rd, 2016

There are a few reasons why someone might want to migrate to New Zealand. Since the weather is often an overly considered aspect of an area, the following two solid reasons that are focused on things that affect you and your family’s everyday life beyond just the weather.

  • Healthcare System

New Zealand is one of the nations at the forefront of universal healthcare. They system put in place by the New Zealand government is especially considerate of individuals who have a preexisting situation. Once you become a permanent resident of the country, or gain a work visa with at least 2 years of validity, you benefit from one of the best government-subsidized public healthcare formats in the world.

In New Zealand all healthcare is low cost, with a large portion of health related expenses being free to qualified residents. Accidents and emergencies are always free by dialing a specific number when an emergency health situation occurs. While some residents still choose to carry insurance subsidies, most people elect to use the outstanding public healthcare benefits of New Zealand.

  • Educational System

If you are a family thinking about migrating to New Zealand then the educational system will be of vital importance. Statistical research has proven New Zealand to have one of the highest rated education systems in the world. Continue Reading »


This Works Well for Women Everywhere

March 1st, 2016

I never liked the fact that, as females, we are expected to look perfect and inviting at all times. But the world is like that, whether I like it or not. I play a lot of sports, so I get dirty and smelly easily. And sometimes, the tight clothing that I wear for certain sports makes me feel that my feminine hygiene needs are not up to snuff. When I found Crystal X when searing for a solution, I knew I needed to try it right away.

I take a lot of showers because I am so into sports. I am very athletic, so I even play on some teams with both men and women. The guys get pretty smelly, but it’s not considered a good idea for the women. I wear deodorant, used deodorant soaps and more to try to stay as clean as possible. But even then, I always feel that I was not doing so hot with feminine hygiene. This was embarrassing to me, even though no one else knew it or was affected by it. It bothered me often.

So, buying Crystal X was perfect for me because it is the one thing that has made me feel fresh and clean on an ongoing basis. I had never had a problem growing up, but getting older made me feel like I was not as clean as I could be. This changed my world. Using it was simple, and the cost is inexpensive. I feel like it should be sold in stores everywhere and that women everywhere need to know about it. I know that other woman feel the same way I do about these things. Since then, I tell every female I know about it, and many have purchased it and said that they love it.
