Every couple of years, I undertake a major renovation for my restaurant. The only way that I will be able to stay as successful as I am right now is if I am able to keep my customers happy, which means keeping my restaurant appealing to them. Earlier this year, I decided to contract a company that does asphalt paving in Nassau County NY so they could put in a new parking lot for me. I actually have parking on all four sides of my restaurant, which was very nice. That meant I would not have to shut down the restaurant for a few days to have this done.
Instead, the asphalt company that I hired did half of the parking lot, and then when patrons were able to park on that side, they started on the second half of the lot. Continue reading My Parking Lot Was Redone
I do not make all that much money, but I did everything I could to try to save money over the past year so that I can move to another city. I wanted this badly, so it was important to me to cut back wherever I could. I also made sure to check out what type of costs I would be looking in the city that I moved to. I checked out Illinois electricity rates and cost of apartments and so many other things. I wanted to make sure that I could handle whatever I needed to without any trouble. It seems that the cost of living in Illinois is so much cheaper than what I have been dealing for so long. So, I was really looking forward to the change of scenery and a new life in my new state.
I don’t really have any family to back me up in life. My mom left my father and me when I was just a little kid. We have never been able to find her, and to be honest, I stopped looking. If she had an interest in seeing me, then she would come around. But she seems to have no interest. Continue reading It Was Important to Me to Make Sure I Could Handle All My Bills
The scanspeeder photo scanning software was the perfect software for the job of scanning twelve year old wedding photos online. Last summer my sister and her husband were getting ready to celebrate their 12th wedding anniversary and I wanted to surprise them with a special gift. I know I could have bought them something, but I wanted the gift to be personal and from the heart. My sister is a nurse and my brother in law a contractor, so they were really not into computers that much. But I knew if I made them a wedding website they would love it. Continue reading Great Way to Save Life’s Memories
I have a job pretty much as an errand boy for a guy who owns and manages apartments here in Winston Salem and High Point. Of course he hired my truck about as much as he hired me. I have an old truck and my Dad has an old landscaper type trailer. I started out doing odd jobs for him on the side. In fact that was probably a better deal for me up to a point. It was just one or two things a week, but he would pay me cash and fill my tank with gas usually as well. He gave me a gas card that I use, but he is keeping track of what I do for him and he is not paying for the gas I use on my own time. I worry a lot about the wear and tear on the truck, but it is about time for me to get a new car that costs a lot less to drive than it does.
I mostly do landscaping types of jobs. Continue reading Got a Job for the Summer
In Singapore the number of homes that are lived in by the owners of the homes is 90 percent. That’s not bad considering a look-see of some of the properties shows a lot of skyscrapers as being residences. Can you imagine owning a nice condo in a skyscraper on an island that is one of the most technologically-ready countries in the world? You can see a new list of the available properties at http://www.thenewlaunchcollections.com. These projects are amazing in their scope and complexity. I am used to seeing mostly single-family homes of a couple of stories in height around where I live, and the buildings in the city that are skyscrapers are mostly offices.
I have not been to visit many of the major cities in my own country, but I have never seen 30 or more floors dedicated to upscale residential living offering condos to own. Continue reading Singapore’s Building Projects Are Very Interesting to See
Sometimes the silliest apps have the biggest followings. I came up with my only silly app and used https://www.massiveinfinity.com to have it made, and it’s getting a pretty good following. I like to dance, and I have no problem showing it. I’ll break out into dance whenever I hear some music that will get my body moving. Sometimes it’s just silly dance that I do when I’m happy, and other times it’s more serious dance when I want to show off how good my moves are to other people. I always thought it would be great if people around the world could see me dancing, and that’s when my idea came.
The app I made with the help of a development company lets me use my phone to record myself dancing. Once I’ve recorded a dance clip, I can upload it to a network that everyone else can see. They can comment on the clip, rate it, and even favorite it, but the best part is that they can compete with it. When people upload clips, they can issue challenges to other people. Continue reading The Challenge Has Been Issued
I got here the other day and I have not had much time to think about anything aside from work. I was staying in a hotel, but I decided that I should buy a place because I am likely to be her for a year and a half at the least. It seems as though they do not really sell you a condo here however, I went to see some seaside residences in Siglap district and I got to talk to this really nice girl about it. She spoke perfect English, although in the local way. It is different from the way that Americans speak it, just like in the U.S you have a lot of regional dialects. At any rate she says that the tenure is 99 years, which I did not understand until she explained it. Obviously I am probably not going to need the place for that long. Continue reading I Just Got to Singapore the Other Day
I’m not a dangerous motorcycle driver. I’ve made sure to take classes to learn how to handle my bike. I obey all the traffic laws when I’m on that thing. I actually don’t drive it in the city. My wife and I go out to the country to drive on roads with few drivers so that we can try to stay safe. During my last ride, I was hit by a lady who reeked of alcohol, and then she fled the scene. A Sacramento personal injury lawyer helped to take on my case.
The woman who hit me just barely missed my wife. I am lucky that the lady didn’t kill me. I was thrown off my bike and landed in a very grassy ditch. The roads were dry, but luck made it so that the patch of land I laid on were soft due to rains for two days straight prior to that. I broke both legs, both arms and was pretty torn up all over. Continue reading I Had to Fight to Get Help with Medical Bills
When I got into a car accident, I immediately thought of my child in the backseat. She is only 5 years old. I was petrified to think that maybe she had been hurt badly. I didn’t realize that I was hurt the most. And then, after I woke up in the hospital, I learned that she had been hurt, too. Not wanting her to be stuck on prescription pain meds for years, I took her to a Chandler auto accident chiropractor to get some pain relief. It was so nice to see that it worked for her and me as well.
I don’t remember all that much about the accident. I just saw someone coming at me with their truck and I panicked. I felt fear at first, and then I remember wanting to turn to look at my child to make sure that she was okay. Continue reading I Wanted Something Better for My Young Daughter
When my husband told me that we were going to move to California, I was pretty excited. I knew that we would miss everyone back home, but it was such an incredible opportunity for us too. He had gotten the promotion that he wanted, which meant that we had to move 2,000 miles away. One of the first things that I did before we even made any plans was to look up the information for DirecTV Sunday Ticket. I knew that if there was one thing my husband would miss almost as much as our family and friends, it would be watching his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers play every week. Continue reading We Didn’t Have to Miss a Single Steelers Game

When I was in negotiations for a large contract, one of the stipulations was that I had to show them my server backup solutions. I had no problem doing this because I am certain that I am using the best possible solution for my business needs. I also understood why they wanted to know this information, because there are so many cases making the news where data has been compromised. I was happy to show them that we take our data security very seriously, and they did not have anything to worry about.
I use the backup services of a very popular company, and they have a great reputation in putting their clients first. I knew that our data was safe with them, and I wanted to assure this potential client that their data would be safe as well. What I really like about the company that I use is that everything is transparent with them, with the exception of the data that they backup. Continue reading I Had to Increase My Backup Storage
I have been talking to the local ADT dealer this morning and trying to figure out if I can afford to upgrade my security system to one of the newer types. I got the current one about 8 or 9 years ago, not long after I bought this house. Back then I had no close neighbors, this used to be out in the country. Of course the farmers are all gone now, because they could sell their land for housing developments and then move out into rural areas and buy more land for a fraction of what they sold the land here for. Back then I was worried because no one could see my house from the main road. Continue reading Trying to Upgrade the Security System
The market for precious metals continues to rise despite an overall drop in the economy. With gold hovering at around $1,600.00 an ounce and silver just under $28.00 an ounce selling your unwanted precious metals can be more lucrative then any other time in recent history. The current price of gold has risen nearly 300% over the last ten years. The increase in demand for precious metals has created a plethora of new businesses designed to help consumers sell their scrap gold and silver or buy silver from others. Late night TV commercials for companies like “Cash for Gold” owned by United Jewelry Buyers gives the consumer the option to mail their jewelry off to the company in an envelope and receive a cash offer for their metals. Continue reading Consumer Options for Selling Gold and Silver Getting More Creative
I have been noticing that the price of gold and silver has not declined recently even though the economy has not been doing all that well. Instead, the price of gold and silver are actually increasing on a fairly steady basis. It is pretty interesting how these metals hold their value despite what economic woes the world might be going through at any point in time. I would imagine that the price of gold has gone up in the past as well during economic strife, but I haven’t actually done the research to back up that notion. I do know that gold and silver have been used as currency across the world for many thousands of years. Continue reading Investing in Precious Metals Like Gold
