I bought this building with the hopes of turning it into a diner. I am not sure if it is going to work out, because it tunrs out that it is in a bit worse shape than I had estimated when I decided to make the purchase in the first place. I would like to talk to a company about roof installation in NYC because this place definitely needs a new roof, and that is just one of the things on the list that I have other things that need to be fixed soon.
The other main issue that I would have with long hours cooking in a kitchen is grease. When you are cooking breakfast food, you definitely stand the risk of getting a lot of grease on your skin, and that is not something that I would handle very well. I hate it when my skin feels greasy, and it drives me crazy. So I don’t think I would be able to tolerate it for hours on end. Rather, that seems like it would be a deal-breaker when it comes to operating a restaurant. Now, if I were able to own a restaurant, and just be in charge of the menu and such, without actually having to cook very often, if at all, then that would be a very different scenario. But I don’t think it is something that is likely to happen. I guess I can dream about it, but I probably will never own a restaurant of my own. That is sad to say, but it is best to be realistic about things, instead of convincing yourself you will do something that is against the odds. I mean, it is good to have goals and dreams, but it is also good to keep them in check and be realistic about them.
I really need to hire a plumber soon, because I have a problem on my hands, and it is not something that I am going to be able to fix myself. To be honest, I am not even sure how it is possible that this is happening. But the kitchen sink is clogged and somehow it is backing up into the dishwasher, which is pretty foul. So I should hire a plumber in Essex county NJ to fix this problem, because I will not be able to wash any dishes until the problem is fixed, and that does not sound like a very fun way to live.
Of course, I could go down to the store and buy some paper plates and cutlery, or whatever, but that seems like a wasteful solution. I have always disliked the thought of paper plates, because they create so much waste. It does not take a lot of effort to clean your dishes, when your dish washer is working. Unfortunately, mine is not working right now. I am going to try to not create much of a mess until I can get a plumber over here to look into the issue, and tell me what is wrong.
Actually, I do not really care what is wrong with the sink and dishwasher, so long as the plumber is able to fix it. And hopefully they will be able to fix it pretty easily, without having to replace anything. That would be nice, but I do not often have that type of luck, so we will have to wait and see for how much it is going to cost. I am still confused as to how this problem is even happening, and it does not make a lot of sense to me. But then again, I am no plumber.
In fact by that I am talking big picture. There are a lot of things to consider I guess. I was looking at the one that you can get with a direct TV system and it looks pretty good from what I can tell. They talk about it on this site http://direct-satellite-tv.com/directv-genie.html and at a lot of other places you can find on the web. It Is not that surprising that they make a good system since they are a nation wide system which you can get at literally almost any address in the USA. It is surprising to me the DVR I have from Time Warner is so lame to tell the truth. They are not really giving you much space, especially if you want to record a movie that is in High Def. They really only hold about fifteen hours of High Definition and for me that is not very good.
The truth is I might go all week and miss all of my TV shows. Then come the weekend I will have a lazy Sunday when there is no football and I would sit and watch the stuff I recorded all week long. Some of the time I am watching shows that other people saw a week before. So I might watch one episode and then immediately realize that the next show is already on my DVR. In fact you have to make plans pretty carefully if you want to do things in an ordered way. I just am not very happy with the system they have or with Time Warner in so far as they are much more expensive than I really believe that they should be. I have to figure out where I get the internet if I switch from Time Warner to Satellite. I think I might be able to get U verse.
We used to have a tub with a shower curtain in the so-called master bathroom in our house. The toilet was a small one that made you feel like you were sitting on the floor when you used it. The sink had an old wooden vanity underneath it that had seen better days. When we did the remodeling, we picked all new stuff that took us out of the Dark Ages of indoor plumbing. We got our enclosure from a place that does shower doors in Union County NJ. It is all glass instead of having wooden walls covered with tile on the inside and drywall on the outside.
We did not want to go from one booth to another one. That is how the tub and shower curtain felt. It kind of reminded me of the voting booths we have at the town hall. You climb in, close a curtain and vote on the machine. The shower was not much bigger. Our new shower is custom built. There is no tub. The floor is tiled and has a special drain made so no raised edge is needed to trap water. Then the glass shower enclosure surrounds the space. It is really nice. We have a nice bright light above the shower. The old one was dark. Once you closed that curtain, it cut off most of the light coming from the ceiling light in the center of the bathroom. Now we have plenty of light and even a heater built into the ceiling.
The new shower enclosure combined with the amazing shower head makes me feel like I am bathing under a waterfall on my own tropical island. It is really a nice experience to shower in the morning before work now. It gives me a few minutes of peace and relaxation. I enjoy it more than I did soaking in the old tub. Now our bathroom has both a nice shower enclosure and a tub.
Streaming as a gamer has become an entirely new industry, breaking ground with the help and the likes of YouTube. Of course, it spawned from a place disconnected even from that itself; G4TV and the original TechTV, where shows used to show case other gamers playing MMOs and tournaments alike. Now with Twitch beginning to help pave the way for the future of streaming games and services like streamm.co helping those same streamers find their own success by providing viewers and views alike. It helped me gain a foothold when I switched over from YouTube which I have been incredibly grateful for.
With luck, I’ve been successful. Who knew that streaming Eve Online would gain so much attention; sure, I might be one of the more well known pirates in the game who has a way of utilizing a bit of flair whenever I go out into the 0.0. I don’t like just pouncing on the unsuspecting prey that dares to come out into this lawless section of space that I claim as my own; no, I want to make it a show. I want them to be paranoid, I want to the people at home to see what a real pirate is like.
A real pirate is ruthless but charming; a real pirate let’s his victim know that it’s not personal but between them but it is personal for myself – my ego is on the line here, my reputation is at stake. They’re just unlucky enough to be in the middle of my sights. I like to cruise around the rare asteroids waiting for a crew of miners to come in and try their luck at a big score and after they’ve filled up their cargo and mining holds, that’s when I strike, ensuring that they feel the pain of loss.
I know the chances of becoming a famous rapper are slim to none. I also know that these same odds were true of most major stars and performers in the business today. Someone has to make it to the top, and I figured my chances were just as good as anyone else’s chances in the business. Not only am I talented at what I do, but I am smart too. Together, that is a winning combination in the entertainment business. I decided to visit buydatpiffnow.com to see how I could jump start my business, which is my voice and my talent as a song writer.
I have been going to Datpiff for a few years now, and I have been learning the tricks of the trade while listening to great music by some of the top stars in the industry. I have my own mix tapes, and I knew that I wanted to put them on Datpiff. This site has set the bar for people in the industry and has even made some people the megastars that they are today. I wanted that same kind of success, but I knew I would need to have the same kind of traffic that they had when they first used the site as artists instead of fans.
I had heard of sites that help people with traffic to their social media sites, and I knew that there had to be one for Datpiff users too. I was glad that I went this route, because I was able to get signed up as an artist and put some of my most recent work on the site. Then, I was able to purchase streaming services, and that helped introduce my music to more people a lot quicker than I could have done on my own. I don’t know if I will end up being a star, but I do like that my chances are just as good as others, if not better!
When my brother told me that his wife was leaving him, he decided that he would be the one to move out of their condo. He did not want the kids to be uprooted from their friends and school, and he knew it would be easier on him too to not be around so many memories. I told him to move in with me, but he said my place was too small for all of his things. I sent him an email that told him to click here to check out Store Friendly, which is a storage facility unit that is located just a few miles from me.
I had stored things there before on a temporary basis, and I knew that this company was solid as far as reputation and prices are concerned. While I agreed that the two needed some time apart from one another, I also had a feeling that the two of them were going to be able to work things out. I didn’t want to see him get settled into a new condo where he would have to sign a lease, because that would just be one more obstacle in the two of them working through their problems.
He looked at the storage information on the website address I had sent him, and I could see the wheels finally turning in his brain. He realized that this was the perfect solution, as it would give them both space and privacy, since he would not have to keep going back to their house to get one thing or another. It did not take us long to get a storage unit that was perfect in size for what he needed. He ended up only needing it for a few months before his wife welcomed him back into their home with open arms. It was much easier moving things out of the storage unit rather than a new condo!
A few weeks ago, I celebrated my one year anniversary of moving into my apartment. I found the apartment at http://knoxvillepointe.com and from that moment on, it was history. Moving into the apartment was a special day for me, because it was the first apartment that I owned. To celebrate, I thought it would be a good idea to have a pool party, since there was a large pool available for the residents at the apartment. I talked to all of the other residents at the apartment complex to let them know that I would be having a party and that they would all be invited.
I went to a party supply store near the apartments to buy everything for the party, except for the food, which I got from a local grocery store. My friends helped me set up for the party. On the day of the party, everyone showed up, ready to play in the water and have a good time. I got a custom cake made for the party. The cake was in the shape of the apartment complex. When the guests saw it, they were all shocked at how well it was made. Of course they thought it was tasty too.
A couple of people at the party suggested that I should make the party a yearly occurrence. I hadn’t though about doing it every year. I did have a good time at the party, but a lot of time, work, and money went into setting it up. I think I might let someone else do it next year. It would be nice to just show up to a party without having to put any thought into what the party will be about and how it will turn out. It would be interesting to see what kind of cake someone else can get.
Gosh, I guess it has been awhile, but I don’t remember moving to be this much of a pain in the butt. It seems like every time I try to get something done, something else comes up and I never make much progress on anything that I am doing. I am not really sure how much longer it will take me to finish moving in, but I want to view more of my options for television at this new place and I think that I am going to get a satellite provider this time around, if for no other reason than the novelty of it. But I am sure that there are other good reasons to get such a television service, and I want to find out what those reasons are.
I have talked some friends in the past, who had satellite, and asked them a bit about it. I asked them what they liked about it, and what they didn’t like. But at the time when I asked them, I had a television contract, and so I was not considering switching at that point in time. I am not sure if any of that information is still valid though, because it is been a few years. So I am going to try to figure out the relevant details on my own and then make up a decision on whether I should get satellite television at my new place.
I want to know more about their DVR capabilities in particular. I never seem to be able to store enough shows on my DVR, at least I couldn’t at my last house. It would always end up full, and then I would have to delete something, in order to record more shows. But more often than not, all of my choices would be between things I hadn’t watched yet.
For Jewish people who are getting married a ketubah is part of the tradition. They are done by professional artists who draw them up making them a keepsake for generations. There are different popular ketubahs and their are different artists who do them. We started out having the ketubah of my wife’s great grandparents reimagined in a modern form. The design they had was so beautiful that we wanted to incorporate elements from it in our own ketubah. Then we thought about what we also liked from our parents and grandparents ketubahs as well as my great grandparents.
We talked with our parents, grandparents and great grandparents asking them if they would mind if we mixed and matched various things from each of their ketubahs in our own. We were fortunate that all of them are still living. Every single one of them started to at least tear up when we asked. They were honored, but we felt that the honor was ours to be allowed to make our ketubah based on pieces from each of theirs.
We took pictures of all of them, and we looked closely at the words of each one. We found uniqueness in each of the six ketubahs in making ours that would be the seventh made from portions of their six. If you are Jewish, you can appreciate this even more. for those who do not know, the ketubah is roughly a prenuptial agreement that is a promise rather than a being a protection. It is not meant to be something a couple uses if they split, but rather it is a beautiful prose of promise to the bride of what she will have. The tradition is one that has been around for a long time and is still honored today. It is not a legal document, but it is one that is expected to be honored by the couple it applies to.
Jack and Tim and I held a meeting this morning. We have to get started working on the church’s various building issues. I have been talking to a roofing contractor in Brooklyn and we are trying to get them to come down on what they are going to charge Discover …
With so many chocies in energy providers in Texas, it makes you wonder what they’re doing right compared to the other states! I’ve moved from state to state over the years and even if a couple of the others have several different energy companies as Texas does, none of them have the number that the Lone Star has brought together. It’s the abundance of energy companies which has given rise to such great prices for the residents here while the competition continues to drive prices down. It’s partially why I’ve chosen to call the state home for so long – cheap bills!
All in all, it effects everything. The very fact that our cost of living is so low here can be tracked back to the numerous energy companies. With lower costs for businesses and residents alike, we can purchase our groceries cheaper. Our rent is typically going to be much lower than the national average in equivalent cities. My rent is only $500 a month for a place that cannot be called small. On top of that, it’s close to everything that I need it to be close to. I couldn’t ask for much more from an apartment anywhere else.
Are you finding yourself worrying over your monthly bills? Do you wonder why you’re paying so much for rent on a place that you may not even entirely like that much? I can only encourage you to seek a new place to live! Texas has a diverse number of jobs available here and while it might be quite the warm, even humid state, it’s one of the greatest places that I’ve called home. The people here are great, the food is even better, the cost of living can give you the freedom and flexibility to do whatever you like!
I am not sure how long it shall take, but there are a lot of jobs in this area. This is a big metropolitan area, between Dallas, Texas and Fort Worth Texas you have a lot of population and there are a lot of jobs. I am mostly looking at this as something where I am not that happy with the guy above me and I am not going to get rid of him. His Dad owns the company and he is going to be the boss after his Dad retires. In truth I am pretty sure that it will end very badly and rather soon after that. This guy just does not have a lot of common sense for starters and he does not know enough to listen to people who know what the score is. So it seems likely to me that pretty soon after he takes over the place things are going to start going to pot.
You have to have a wise man at the rudder, or else you end up striking the rocks. Of course the big thing is the ability to get jobs at a price where you make money and that is not something this guy is any good at. You have to be able to figure out how to bid on jobs so that you have a real balance. There has to be a way that the client gets an advantage and enough of a profit for you to keep your operations going. This guy has no feel for that and of course it is a tough thing to master. You want to make a profit, but you can not be greedy or you shall have no work to do at all. Some of the time you have to take a job just to keep people occupied.
I have had to deal with a lot of nonsense with my internet recently, or rather, I should say my internet service provider. Apparently, the cord for my room was mislabeled, and so somebody came to do a connection, or a disconnection, and saw that a cable that was not supposed to have service was connected with internet. When in reality, I was supposed to have the web, they just mislabeled my stuff. It is super frustrating, because I kept getting calls from advanced technical support to ask me if the problem was resolved. I don’t know how these people thought that they were communicating with my modem, since it was in no way connected to their system. The best was when I got a call from some guy in Ireland who was talking some nonsense about signal strength.
Anyway, it took them over a week to come over to my house and fix the problem, and it was super annoying to have to wait that long. I got to thinking about it though, and I deserve better from an ISP so I am going to start to look for whatever else is out there and available in my area. I want to find information on new deals that might be available in my area. I hope to get a good price for a fast internet connection. I am probably going to upgrade my connection to a faster speed than what I currently have, because I am not really satisfied with how fast I can browse the web at the moment. When it comes to a web connection, I have a general rule of thumb, which states that faster is always better. I don’t know what other ISP companies offer service in my area though so that is something I will look up
I am going to move down to College Station, but it is not a rush. The college of Texas A & M is going to give me a pretty nice job, but it does not start until the other guy retires at the end of the next semester. I have to go find a place to live and I already went to http://www.energyproviderstexas.com and figured out which power companies are going to be available to me in College Station TX. You have to pick one Actually I met the guy that I am replacing and he has like months worth of sick days and vacation, so officially he will still be on the job for a long time after I replace him, but every body knows that he is going to be down on the Gulf of Mexico where he has has built a retirement home close to the causeway that leads to South Padre island.
Obviously I would love to find a place that is close to the campus. I have been to college before and even if they promise you a parking place that does not mean that you are going to able to find one in a reasonable time. Working in the administration building you should be able to get a parking spot, but I am not going to take that for granted. I used to ride my bike when I was at TCU, that was the best way to get around so long as it was not storming. So long as the weather is good a bike is the best way to get around in one of these campuses, because they are designed to make it easy for you to get around with a bike and the opposite is true if you have a car and you need to park.
I pretty much got thrown out of the place where I had been living, but not for any fault of my own. I had been living in this studio apartment not too far from the campus of Portland State, but the place changed hands and the new landlord decided he would run everyone off who had a lease, then get new tenants after he raised the rent by about a third. I was told I had to get rid of my dog, but instead I looked until I found this place, http://www.scottmountainbythebrook.com/ and moved over there. I got a guy from work to go half on it with me, but my name is on the lease. He is having different problems, because his girlfriend just tossed him out. He says that he did nothing wrong, but I am guessing that she had cause. Of course I am not going to date him, so it does not bother me if he is running around with that wild little thing from the mail room. Of course I am not going to be telling on him if he does, which no one would need to be told either. I wish I could have gotten it for less, but I am going to be able to make it. The raise I got at work is really helping me out and I believe that I shall be able to pay off my student loans within a year or thereabouts, which will put me in good shape. By that time I will need to think about getting a new car perhaps, but I shall hope this old Toyota is able to stay on the road for a good long time and not give me any major headaches. It has been a pretty good car no matter how much longer it goes.
I just had a pretty tasty meal and I will get to that in a moment. First thing I wanted to talk about in this blog is something work related. We have to get a new roof on the building that I work in. It is kind of a bummer for the budget, because no one saw it coming. We had to hire some company that does commercial roof installation in Middlesex county NJ and they started work today to put a new roof on the building. I am kind of curious what you do when you put a new roof on a building. How do you take the old roof off? Does it come off in segments? Seems like there would be a lot of logistics that go into that.
At the same time, it also seems like there would also be a lo tof logistics into building a new roof. I know that they don’t come pre-made. It would be nice if you could just get a crane and take one roof on and use the crane to put the next roof on. Maybe tighten some stuff down and be done with it. But I know that is not the way it works, and that they have to build these things piece of piece.
Seems like it would be a hard job. Glad I work at a desk job, and not building roofs, but somebody has to do it. Anyway, back to my lunch. I went to his local fastfood chain that only exists in the state where I live and I got this combo with a spicy chicken sandwich, and onion rings, and fries, and a huge sweet tea. It was only like 4 bucks. Super cheap, and super delicious, I love that place but it is probably kind of unhealthy.
For the past couple of weeks I have been doing my best to get started on my next project, but stuff keeps coming up. For example this this morning I had to deal with this problem cause by one of the programmers playing around on this web page. It was some site that said something like plane games 365 and he was doing some sort of weird stuff on there. At any rate whatever he did started giving up us feedback in the system and we spent a couple of hours trying to diagnose it. Of course it was just a bunch of garbage that got swallowed up in the wash. None of it I really had any effect. Once we figured out what was going on we just deleted the problem and we were fine, but for a couple of hours we thought that there was something seriously wrong with our code.
Of course Mr. White is not happy with the guy who was playing the game. Of course we pay that guy whole lot of money to think about our problems an nothing is spent on him creating more problems for us. So we expect him to try to do his job pretty much and that is not what the guy was doing. He was making a whole lot of money and doing nothing except killing time. It was the sort of thing you could expect from high school kids. This guy is a good programmer too, but he just does not seem to care much about this job. I am guessing he thinks that if we fire him he can find another job pretty easy and the funny thing is that he is probably right. If you can really program people will put up with stuff like this.
I have been talking to the people who provide monitoring Akron home security by adt. We are going to be moving next week and we have to get a lot of things ready. I figure that I can keep the same plan that I have now, but I have to figure out what a new system will cost me. This one was installed when I bought the house and there is not all that much to it. There are some sensors that tell you if the entry points have been tampered with and there is this one video camera on the front of the house. It is probably ten year old technology and if you were going to get something done now you could probably do it for less and get a lot better gear. Of course you can get great little cameras for very little and you can pretty much set it up so that you can see all around the perimeter of the house.
Of course you have to have a set of sensors that detects real threats and youdo not want something that goes off every time a month lands on the window. We had an alarm that used to go off every now and again at work and no one could figure out exactly why. The reason was that that building had a bit of flexibility built in to it. So every now and again the wind blows really hard and that would move one of the sensors out of the right position. Of course that is what these things are. You have two sensors and they need to stay in the same place or it goes off. If they move they think that means that some person made them move, but in this case it wasn’t.
Time Warner Cable is one of the largest cable companies in the entire country and with the upcoming, potential merger with Comcast, they will become one the primary sources for cable and Internet service for the majority of American consumers. I honestly do not how to feel about this – few companies are ever inherently evil but they can become too large for their own good, often hampering their own abilities to provide high quality services to their customers while doing their best to maintain profits as is expected by company shareholders. This can complicate matters greatly, causing no end of trouble.
I’ve experienced this kind of trouble first hand but I do not like to blame Time Warner for what I had to go through. The first sign of trouble that I had was the fact that they didn’t even show up to install the cable box the day that they had scheduled – a big problem if you ask me but almost understandable considering the size of their company. Things happen, mistakes are made and it’s always better to forgive and forget rather than hold a grudge against them. At least, that’s my philosophy; I don’t know whether or not it actually works!
It certainly hasn’t made the customer service experience any better and I’ve had a lot of anxiety whenever I’ve called them. Luckily I enjoy the services they provide, including even the premium packages that they offer although I do wish they were able to provide a more flexible model of content subscription, maybe something more similar to YouTube or even Netflix! This would be great since I’m paying so much money for their services as is – I’d pay the same amount now as long as I were able to pick and choose what I wanted to watch.
My adt home security system is a necessity in my house. Although we live in a fairly safe neighborhood, we’ve had our fair share of break-ins in recent months. I’m a stay at home mom, and my husband travels a lot. Therefore, I feel much safer when I’m able to set my alarm. I know something would be wrong if I ever came back to the house and I didn’t hear that alarm as I entered the front door. That simple fact alone gives me peace of mind.
In addition, it makes me feel better to set the alarm at night, particularly if my husband isn’t home. If anyone ever did try and get in, the alarm would serve as my warning, and I could try and get myself and my son to safety. It may sound a little crazy, but I’ve always had a nervous personality. The alarm just helps me to feel better, and I can lay my head down and sleep soundly at night.
I recently discovered another benefit to the system as well. We set it so that the system chimes as a door is opened or closed. It also announces which door has been opened. My little guy recently discovered that he could open and shut the doors in our house. The other day, I was in the kitchen and he tried to get out the front door. You would think I would have heard him as he tried to open it, but I didn’t; the alarm alerted me, however, and I was able to grab him, shut the door and lock it.
We have been talking about moving recently, and I’m on board with the idea. However, I have one condition; the new house absolutely must have a security system installed in it as well.
We moved out of Chapel Hill last weekend, something we had been planning ever since I started going into semi retirement. We bought us a little farm that backs up to Kerr Reservoir or as they call it up in Virginia Buggs Island. In fact this place is about an hour North of Hillsborough by road, but you could get in a boat and get there in about a quarter of that time. We hooked up the directv this morning and worked on getting the wireless internet working. That seemed a bit hopeless when we started planning this, but they have a wireless internet service which covers most of the populated areas of North Carolina and this place is able to get the signal, if you boost it with a hot spot (I think that is what you call the thing). We wanted to get a good boat dock built, but I guess they do not allow that and at any rate it seems that no one can predict how they are going to raise the water level up and down. In other reservoirs you are more of a priority than you are here. On Smith Mountain Lake for example there are tons of suburbs along the shores of the lake and areas where you have houses that must be worth five million dollars one by the other. The tourism and the property taxes are really important and so they try to accommodate the people who live on the water and the ones who make their living of the people who live there. On Kerr reservoir it is about power generation and the water for the population centers that use it, so they really do not care if I want a boat dock that is where I left it that morning.
