When the snow is flying and the wind is blowing, my dog gets cold on our walks. I noticed when I stopped to talk to a friend on a winter’s day that she was shivering. As long as we kept moving, she was okay. She is a big dog, but she does not have a lot of fur. I wondered why on really cold days she would be in a hurry to get through our regular route. She wanted to make her rounds, but she wanted to get back home too. I looked for a nice jacket for dog use, and found all kinds of parkas and other designs.
I am partial to green, so I got her a green parka that keeps her back and trunk warm. It covers her chest from her throat to her belly, but it allows freedom of movement. It has reflective piping and patches that really light up brightly when car headlights are going by on night walks. Continue reading My Fashionable Dog in Her Jacket Made for Dogs
Detecto scales, or at least the one I recently bought, work great for weighing bullets. I have a federal firearm license and buy and sell a lot of guns, but I also love shooting. I’m at my happiest when I am down at the range or out on my property outside the city putting rounds through my large collection of rifles and handguns. I fire so much ammunition a month that I quit buying bullets about five years ago. I started making my own ammunition around then and have continued to do so up to the present.
What I needed was a scale to weigh my rounds. It should go without saying that you have to be really careful when you are making rounds. Continue reading Works Great for Weighing Bullets
I just started out on the hunt for one of the things that I have been planning upon. It is a big deal for me and I have to figure out how to do it correctly. Of course I am tired of living with my parents, but that is really cheap. They make me give them a couple hundred dollars a month, but that probably just covers the groceries that I eat and the electric power that I use. At any rate I have been looking around for apartments for rent in North Charleston SC. The idea was that I would get a place on my own and that everything would be great. I would get a girlfriend and so forth. Continue reading Ready to Move out of My Parents Place
There are so many nice apartments nowadays. The landlords have figured out that people who live in apartments will pay a little more for renting a nicer place. When I was younger, it was a lot tougher to find an apartment that had all the nice amenities you could have in a house. We wanted a nice kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and we wanted a washer and dryer. We found what we were looking for when we were searching for luxury apartments for rent in Old Town Scottsdale. We had been wanting to move back to the Scottsdale, Arizona area for years, and now we were taking advantage of the opportunity to do so.
If I take an assignment where I work, they give you a housing allowance. The project was for five years, and that is a long time to get a housing allowance. Continue reading With Our Nice New Apartment in Scottsdale, We Could Be the Ones Entertaining Family and Friends
Speculation has a long tradition within the banking systems of the world. Speculation of natural resources is no doubt one of the very first examples of this being done. With the current scrap copper prices on the rise, it’s safe to say that construction and development is quickly rising to meet that expectation. What could be the cause of it? Is it because of China’s presence in Africa? They have been busy helping the Africans establish a modern infrastructure; everything from roads, houses and to entire cities that are springing up from the resource rich earth that Africa has long been purveyor of.
It’s the same reason that war, strife, violence and suffering has been the anthem of the world’s largest continent. It shouldn’t be that way but wherever there is land, resources and anything else that man might covet for himself you’re going to find the ugly leavings of greed’s presence. Not that China is being altruistic in their business dealings with the African governments. Continue reading All Things Are Reduced to Scrap
I started out cutting my neighbor’s grass one day when they were away on vacation. I was cutting the lawn at our house. It was my chore as a teenager. The neighbor was returning home that day, and I wanted them to not have to worry about cutting grass before going back to work. They really liked the job I did , and they paid me even though I did not want anything. Then they hired me to cut it! Now, a few years later, I do this for a living. I have employees, and you can check here to see how easy it is to get them their paystubs for the withholding and income tracking part of hiring an employee.
I have expanded to include a lot more landscaping jobs since my first paid job cutting grass as a teenager. I now have trucks and trailers for the equipment, and have commercial mowers and trimmers. I am working on a masters online and a few night classes too. It is warm year round here, so I really do not have any downtime. I do take a vacation with my wife and kids each year. Continue reading Growing My Business the Steady and Easy Way Keeps It Fun to Do
My wife and I had been living in a luxury apartment for years. When she asked me not long ago how I felt about buying a home in the Los Altos Hills, I actually thought it was a great idea. We are both much more successful now in our lives, and we can definitely afford to finally have the house of our dreams. We both thought that Los Altos Hills would be the best place for us because it is so close to where we both work. We also checked the school district out and was happy with what we found out.
We have only one child right now, and she means everything to us. Continue reading Finding the Perfect House Can Be Easy
I spend a lot of time online for my job. I work in the customer support field, and I help people who aren’t as proficient online as I am. They call me for a variety of different things. Sometimes people call me because they can’t figure out which gadget they should buy. Other times they have difficulty using a new electronic device that they just purchased. In any event, I’m always willing to help. Last week, someone stumped me by asking a new question. They wanted me to help them unlock their iPhone using iphoneunlockofficial.net. I’ve been asked a lot of different questions before, but this was a first.
I opened up the website and placed the customer on hold. I learned all about unlocking iPhones and the various steps that a person should take during the process. I got back on the phone with the customer and asked him if he tried contacting his carrier to have his phone unlocked. He said yes, and that they were unable to do it. That’s okay, because on the website they had detailed instructions that would allow me to assist him through the process. Continue reading Helping a Customer Unlock Their IPhone
Sometimes I think about things that hold my attention until I can find the answer. Not long ago, I was curious about a rumor I had heard about who will marry Elsy Chayeb. I have seen her on social media, and I was curious so I went online to find the answer. However, when I go online, I am the type of person who will end up on a website that has nothing to do with what I was originally looking for. That is what happened this time. I was searching around, and I found myself on a blog that is written by a person who is involved in online marketing.
That piqued my interest even more because I have a web business that was not doing as well as I thought it should be doing. Continue reading Learning Some Marketing Tips Online

I was offered one of those job opportunities that only come around once in a person’s working life. I knew that if I did not accept it, that I would probably never have that chance again. It took me all of three days to talk about the pros and cons with my wife, mainly because the con side of the list was very short. Our next question was, where to live in San Diego? We were living in New York at the time, and neither of us had even been to California in over a dozen years.
Thankfully, we were both familiar with San Diego before we headed east, so we knew that the La Jolla neighborhood was a good one. Continue reading This is Now Our Home
We got the new HVAC system installed at the church and now we are going to get started other things which we need. I have to think about the long term part of it, so we are going to wait a little bit and start getting quotes on preventative maintenance contracts in NYC. You really do not want to spend a fortune on a big system like this and then forget to take care of it. You have a lot of things which can go wrong with it and you can be sure that they will go wrong if you are not doing what needs to be done to maintain the system. It is only logical and we want to be safe about this. It took us a great deal of work to figure out how we are going to pay this off and so the last thing you want is to have it go bad on you before we have even paid it off.
The last system lasted a very long time. Continue reading The New HVAC System is Installed
I was really excited about a job promotion offer at my work, but it did not take long for me to get disappointed about it. The reason why was because I was not eligible for the promotion. The position required someone who was masterful in design, particularly Adobe. While I can muster my way through some of the programs, it is definitely at an amateur level. I knew that I needed to educate myself so I could advance, and that is why I did a search for design school in Singapore.
I wanted to find a school that would not take up a lot of my time but could still teach me more than the basics of the programs that I needed. Continue reading Educating Myself for a Future Promotion
Just about anyone can make a website if they know even a little bit about following directions. That is okay too, if you want to make a personal website that only family and friends may look at. When you want a lot of people to come to your website though, it is best left to have a professional designer create it. That is why I was looking for a company that does website design in Metro Detroit not long ago. I am a jewelry designer, and I had too many people wanting to see my newest creations.
When I was just selling a piece here and there, it was not a big deal to show them my newest designs. Continue reading A Website for My Jewelry Business
My son has been adamant about wanting a pet for a couple of years. I hated to tell him no, but we were renting and our landlord simply would not allow cats or dogs there. When my son asked me if he could at least get an aquarium, I knew that we would be able to do that. I still asked our landlord, and he agreed that fish would be okay. I went online and looked at saltwater fish for sale. I mainly did this because I never had an aquarium before, and I wanted to make sure that we had everything that we needed.
My son was one step ahead of me though. He had already been looking at fish and fish supplies online. He had all of the information that we needed, and he showed me the fish that he really wanted. Continue reading Taking Care of Snowflake Clownfish
