I Am Still Looking at Houses

Of course if I had about twice as much money as I have, then everything would be a lot easier. However you have to work with what you have and I got a good tip from this person I sort of know that works for a Suffolk county tree service. He told me about the place and I went over to see it. At first look the place looks like it is a real wreck and of course there is a lot of things that must be done to get it fixed up. I am going to be able to do a lot of the things that need to be done without help though. I know people who can do nearly everything else and I believe that I can convince them to help me in exchange. I have to buy the place first and the seller does not seem to be all that eager to take what I can give him.

In fact when I make him an offer on a place like this I can not give him all the money that I have. If I did that then I would be stuck with a house that was not really fit to live in and no money to fix it up. So I have to figure out what the fixing up is going to require, although it is better if I get more than that left over for the work. The guy wants me to pay for the house as though it was in good condition, but it is going to take thousands of a dollars to fix the place up and it is going to take me about six months since it is going to be something that I can only work upon on my weekends and after work.

Pruning Trees is Definitely Best Done by Pros

I thought that I would be able to trim one of my trees on my own since it was not all that tall. I figured I could just take a ten foot ladder out to it and work some arbor magic. Well, I did drag the ladder out, but it took me all of two minutes before I realized that I needed to bring in a Nassau County tree pruning company. Sometimes I do get carried away, thinking that I can do something when I have never done it before. It did not take me long to find a tree company that I wanted to use though.

I figured since they were going to prune my smaller tree, I might as well have them do the two big trees out in the backyard too. I had never had them professionally pruned before, and I knew that they were getting way too tall. When they came out to do the three trees, I did have some questions. I really appreciated that they took the time to talk with me about what they were doing. It was not because I wanted to do it myself the next time either.

I had learned my lesson once I saw them in action. First off, I did not have the right tools to trim the trees. I thought my pruning shears would do it, but I realized quickly after watching them in action that I would have probably just hurt myself. I also realized that I honestly did not have the skill set to prune a tree. I thought it would be just like giving the tree a hair cut, but I learned from them that there is a special way to prune trees in order to not compromise them. This is one job I will just leave to the professionals in the future!

I Had an Interesting Visit Today

I did not know who she was, but my friend Jack sent her to see me. When I saw her she almost took my breath away, this was a stunningly beautiful young woman. She was around 26 I would guess with long brunette hair and green eyes. I tried to stare at the eyes so that I would not get caught staring at the cleavage. She laughed and told me that she had not accidentally worn a dress with a plunging neckline. She was not shy about saying she was a brunette escort from Las Vegas, apparently one who was really good at the business aspect of what she did. She seemed to be interested in diversifying her assets, the ones that the IRS is interested in and not the ones I was trying not to ogle. After awhile she laughed at me and asked me if I wanted to see them. Read More

There wasn’t a big selection of shower doors at the home center. We had already picked out the tile, the paint and even the faucets for the sink and shower.

As for the glass enclosure we wanted, we looked at shower doors in Essex County NJ. There is a company there that makes glass shower enclosures that really open up the space.

Whether or not you have a big bathroom or a small one, the shower enclosures this place makes are astounding. Read More

My Hometown Crime Stats Are Up

When I moved back to my hometown, I was really surprised with all the changes. The last time I had been back for more than a few hours prior to moving back was nearly six years ago, and a lot had changed even in that time period. I was glad to back though because a lot of my friends still lived in the area, and I was looking forward to reconnecting on a deeper level. What I was not expecting to do right away was look at different deals I could get on home security systems at https://home-security.co/adt-home-security/.

Like I said, a lot has changed. When I lived here over a dozen years ago, the worst thing to happen was the high school cheerleaders TP’ing trees at the football players houses. That is no longer done because innocent fun like that has departed the streets. Read More

Going Farther Than I Expected

I had been wondering about what I was going to do once I got to university. I had no idea what I wanted to study and it kind of bothered me that all of my friends said that they knew what they wanted to study but I still had no general idea. I know that I am young and I am supposed to know if I want to pay for A level physics tuition or even other courses but I was not sure. Read More

I Just Love Working Here

When I picked up a job as a part time cleaner in Singapore, I only expected to keep the gig for a few months in order to pay off some bills associated with the holidays. I don’t really have to work much due to my husband’s ample income, but it’s always nice to contribute where you can with things around the house. More money always helps the bottom line in the family budget. I thought I’d pick up a job cleaning homes and businesses because I did that sort of work back in my college days and enjoyed it.

I started looking online for prospects when a friend’s daughter heard about my job search and said I should come work her company. It just so happens that she does similar work and has for some time. She said her company is a really great place to work. Read More

The Air Flow Slows Down

When it gets hot, I don’t hesitate to turn on the air conditioner. Some people like to wait until the temperature gets hot enough to cook an egg, but I prefer to have a perfectly chilled room. Recently, I turned on the air conditioner, and only a trickle of cold air was coming out of the vents. I lowered the temperature and increased the fan speed, but the same air trickle was happening. I checked the filters and they were clean, which confused me. I contacted a company for HVAC repair in NYC, because I had a suspicion that something might be inside my vents blocking the air from coming through properly.

A repair professional came to my home and took a look at my air conditioner to see what could be wrong with it. The problem wasn’t in the vent, but rather in the air conditioner itself. There was a problem with the fan motor, causing it to turn at a slower speed than normal. Not only that, the air conditioner was low on freon. The repairman put in a new motor and added some freon and then I tested the air conditioner again. This time, it let out a full blast of cold air like always.

To celebrate the air conditioner working again, I decided to make a batch of ice cream. I grow my own strawberries in my garden, and I cut up a few of them and mixed them with some cream and sugar. I bought an ice cream machine on sale a few months ago, and I’ve used it more than enough times to pay for the cost. I make ice cream all the time, and there are no limits on the kinds of flavors that I can create, because I can add anything to the mix.

I Wanted to Live Closer to People Who Are More Like Me

Things have changed so much in this city over the years. The west side is where many people wanted to live at one point in time because it was considered to be country and the more laid-back area of the city. But now, there’s really not much country life here. People don’t realize that is not what our state is always about. Now, many people like to live in the part of town where there are many apartments in Newport News Virginia becaues it’s hip, trendy and very cool to live near all the apartments that are new and clustered in a newer section of the city. I wanted to find a place in that area of town myself.

When I first moved here, I am one of those people who rushed to live on the west side of town because it is so lush and pretty. Read More

A Custom Option for Specific Needs

For a task that I needed to complete, I had to find a custom PDU, because the one I was using had blown out. The PDU was essential to my plans, and without it, I was stuck doing nothing. I had bought the old PDU from a local man who didn’t need it anymore. The PDU had been in use for some years before I bought it, but it was still in good condition. It lasted a long time, but I suppose nothing lasts forever. There wasn’t anyone else in the area that I could buy a PDU from, so I had to go with the custom route.

A custom option is better for me because I need a specific amount of power for the task that I have to do. A regular PDU will only provide a certain level of distribution, which they normally aren’t built to handle for a long period of time. Read More
