We Got to Nevada Last Week

Posted by Comments off

The drive up here took the two of us around five and a half hours, but obviously Jack is not really afraid of getting a speeding ticket and he would have lost his license for sure if they had caught him a few times. Obviously you are driving down a freeway in the desert and if you are driving at night you can really find places where there is not anyone to interfere. The work up here is going to last at least half a year, so we searched for apartments for rent in Las Vegas before we left Texas. We found a place that fit our needs and it turned out to be a lot better than we expected it to be. When we got there it was hard to miss the fact that there were several dozen really good looking women laying around at the apartment’s pool when we got there. One of them offered us a couple of cold beers and neither of us turned her down. Read more…

Helping Mom and Dad to Not Worry About My Baby Sister out Living on Her Own

Posted by Comments off

My sister was pressured by our parents to move close to my wife and I. She has been on her own for a couple of years. She went to college back where we grew up, and she lived at home with Mom and Dad. I helped her get a job in a division of the company I work for, so she had to move to Georgia. Mom and Dad told her to look for an apartment for McDonough GA to be close to Steve. That’s me. The older brother. My sister is tough and fully capable of taking care of herself. She is an expert martial artist and can handle weapons better than many police officers and soldiers I have met. However, that is their little girl. You know, the baby of the family. The rest of us five siblings are boys. I am just a year older than Trish, but I’m a guy, so that makes me able to watch out for her in their minds. Read more…

I Found My Apartment in Record Time

Posted by Comments off

I had no idea how to even begin looking for an apartment here in Georgia. I did not know the area that well, mainly because this area is so large. I wanted to make sure that I was able to get an apartment in a safe area where I would be centrally located. I didn’t even really know anyone yet to ask them to help me with this either. Rather than get nervous about it, I just went online and did a search for apartments for rent in Marietta GA. Read more…

Getting Our Son Professional Youth Strength and Agility Training to Master a Skill He Wanted to Acquire

Posted by Comments off

Our son started jogging before he was a teenager. No one was sure why. He said he wanted to increase his lung capacity and cardio endurance to be able to run up this big hill on our property. I was about a 200 foot vertical ascent up a very steep incline. It was probably the steepest angle you could walk up without needing the assistance of a rope. It was covered in grasses and some small trees, but if you fell, it could hurt. Watching him run up was scary and encouraging. We got him youth speed and agility training to advance that natural skill he had.

I watched him run up that hill and almost make it to the top before he lost his footing and started to tumble down. I would actually reach out as if I could do something to arrest his fall. He never broke anything falling, but he did have plenty of cuts and bruises trying to master that climb. The first time he made it was like him winning an Olympic event. Read more…

We Both Started Going to the Chiropractor

Posted by Comments off

When my husband had to see a chiropractor in Campbell CA because of a work injury, I decided to learn more about chiropractic care. It is something we had both obviously heard of before, but neither one of us had any experience with it. I went online and looked at several reputable sites, and I was amazed at what I found out. I imagine that I am typical among people who had never been to one before, not understanding just how beneficial one is to a living a healthy lifestyle.

There are so many benefits to seeing a chiropractor. These are benefits that have been scientifically proven, and it is just hard to not see how a person could know this stuff and not have a chiropractor on their health team. Some of the interesting things that I read about include chiropractic patients having a boost to their immune systems, reduced stress in their bodies and lives, and increased energy. The more I read, the happier I was that my husband was receiving care from his chiropractor. Read more…

A Quick Cure for Tennis Elbow

Posted by Comments off

I visited a chiropractor in Mesa AZ after noticing I was having issues with my elbow while playing tennis. I guess it’s probably as much to do with my age as something wrong with my playing form. I’ve played tennis for decades and have very good form so I’m thinking it’s got something to do with my age. After you hit sixty you notice all sorts of weird aches and pains that weren’t there during your younger years. I figured I’d sprained my elbow and the pain would eventually subside. I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Apparently it was tennis elbow. My doctor deduced as much and his recommendation was to slowly get out of playing tennis lest something more serious occur. Read more…

My Fridge Stopped Working for Me

Posted by Comments off

When something is wrong in my home, I have a Sacramento HVAC company that I typically call. They handle a lot more than just air conditioners and furnace repairs. They also handle large appliance repairs such as a stove, fridge, dishwasher, washer and dryer, and more. This company can also tackle any plumbing or electrical issues, and they also repair pools and spas then they go on the fritz. It is really nice having a company that can handle so many different things, because when something does go wrong, they are usually able to handle it.

When my fridge stopped working a few weeks ago, I prayed that I would not need to replace it. I could handle a repair bill a lot better than I could handle replacing the entire thing. The ironic thing is that my extended warranty had just expired about a month prior to it not working. Read more…

My Husband Went to See a Very Popular Chiropractor

Posted by Comments off

I really didn’t know what to do for my husband for the longest time. The pain that he had been going through had gone on for for far too long. We tried all sorts of home remedies they didn’t really do him much good. I’d been looking things up online to try to find something else that would help him, and one of the articles I read said that seeing a chiropractor in San Jose is a pretty popular thing to do. I had no idea that chiropractors are so incredibly popular. But I figured that something that is wildly popular means that it works and might just be the solution that my husband needed very badly.

My husband is a long-haul trucker. He’s been doing that for about 25 years. When he’s on the road, he can easily find himself needing to sit in the driver’s seat of his truck for about 12 hours straight. He is often under very strict deadlines, and has little time to take any breaks. This means he doesn’t get a chance very often to get out of his truck to stretch, walk around or do any sort of exercises that might help him to feel better. After decades of this, he found that he wasn’t able to get rid of the back pain that plagued him.

I went with my husband to the chiropractic appointment. He’s not very good about asking questions or remembering things that he is told. So I felt it was best that I go with him so that I could make sure to bring up any important information that the chiropractor would know. Watching the treatments the chiropractor gave him was very intriguing. After my husband found relief from the help that he received, I decided to start making future appointments there for myself, too.

We Had No Trouble Picking This Apartment in Alamo Heights

Posted by Comments off

I like a nice clean place to live. My wife and I are not clean freaks, but we do like things in order. We like our place to always be ready to receive guests without feeling the need to apologize for any clutter. We chose from apartments in Alamo Heights a place where we could have a nice apartment and nice surroundings outside. It does not matter how clean you keep your place if the apartment complex is not kept up. We liked this place because the landscaping and everything was in really good order.

We picked the Niche Apartments because they fit our lifestyle. We have a dog that really enjoys the dog park. We enjoy swimming in the nice pool. Our apartment is just the right size. We like the black refrigerator and dishwasher and the granite countertops. It is also really nice to finally have washer and dryer hookups in the apartment. I never want to have to go anywhere to do laundry again. Read more…

Teaching Canaries to Sing Songs from the Wild

Posted by Comments off

We have several different birds. The macaw makes a lot of noise with her songs. She will even say words. It cracks everyone up. It is amazing how she can mimic my voice and inflection so precisely. I have said the same phrases over and over probably thousands of times. She is still picking up on new ones. She is a very smart bird. Our canaries would not start singing, so we found a canary songs CD online. It was what was needed to get them singing like they were in a band.

The wild songs of the canaries are on a couple of different CDs. They can play for over an hour before repeating. Read more…

Touring an Apartment with Floor Plans

Posted by Comments off

When searching for new apartment, it’s really important to take a look at the floor plans so that you understand just how the apartment is laid out. When I decided to search for apartments for rent in Grand Prairie TX, I made it a point to try and find this information on each website I visited. One apartment community in particular had this information readily available for me. That’s how I knew that this was the place where I really wanted to live. I was able to open up the floorplan, and get a really good view of what my apartment would look like. I can easily tell whether or not my furniture would fit, and in vision what life here would look like.

There are some details that you can see on the floorplan, and their other details that require good photography. This website offers that as well. I was able to take a tour of the property simply by viewing the photos and orienting myself with the community. It was really easy for me to see all of the details that made me feel at home and like I could easily be part of this community. Read more…

Moving into an Apartment This Month

Posted by Comments off

I was excited to look at luxury apartments in Stone Oak because that meant my wedding day was getting closer. My fiance had proposed to me before he was deployed, and he just came back for good about a month ago. We have already spent too much time being engaged, so we wanted to get things moving as quickly as possible. He has already been hired on at a San Antonio business, and I work as a dental technician, so I wanted to find a place that is close enough for both of us to get to work without a long travel time involved.

I had already been thinking about the Regency at Lookout Canyon apartments on their website, and I already knew I wanted to live there. Read more…

I Had to Fix the Bad Decisions I Made During College

Posted by Comments off

Sometimes it can be hard to know when you need to give up and try something else to fix a situation, especially when your pride is involved. A Sacramento bankruptcy attorney helped me to understand what the best thing for my situation would be. I was not doing a very good job of figuring out on my own previously. I needed the guidance from someone who knew what they were talking about. The way that I had been running my life previously had put me in financial ruin, and I needed a helping hand to get out of that position.

I can’t blame anyone other than myself. I was given credit cards by a variety of different companies when I was in college. Read more…

Affordable and Pleasant Apartment Living

Posted by Comments off

I hate moving. I think most people do. I had to look for Silver Spring MD apartments for rent after learning from my boss that I was getting a promotion and transferring to a new office the company planned on opening in a new city. The promotion means I will eventually make enough money to finally purchase a house, but for right now I needed to line up an apartment so I could get right to work. I’m not comfortable enough to buy a home outright in a strange city when I don’t know for certain how the new position will play out, so an apartment is the best option.

In the old day it was a real hassle to get an apartment in a new city. You actually had to go there ahead of time and spend a lot of time on the phone lining everything up. Read more…

Finding the Best Antiperspirant for Myself

Posted by Comments off

I was trying to find the best antiperspirant to buy, but I was so confused because there are just so many conflicting things out there about both deodorants and antiperspirants. I decided that the best way I could actually find out which one is better was to just educate myself. I really did not know anything about either one other than it is customary to use one so a person does not stink! How do they work though, and which one is better over the other. I knew the best way to do this would be by going online and finding a site that has all of the answers.

I did not worry about such a site not existing, because come on, this is the Internet we are talking about. Read more…

Today We Have More Help Than Ever

Posted by Comments off

When my dad became an engineer, he said that there was a lot of guess work that came with designing structures. He said that they needed to be as sure as possible that their designs were structurally sound, but it was also a risk because they didn’t have the resources that we have now to do that work for us. I was reading through the Tekla Structure Modeling tutorial last night and thinking about all of the things that it does for me as an engineer. I can’t imagine living in a time where you can only be 99% sure that our designs are safe and will be productive.

I think that humans today are becoming smarter and smarter. Read more…

Best Tourist Destinations in Nigeria

Posted by Comments off

I have been planning to go on a really exotic vacation for a year or two now, because I want to experience a part of the world that most people would not choose to go to on a vacation. I have finally started planning this trip, and I have decided that I am going to go to Nigeria. As such, I need to look up info about tourist destinations in Nigeria and figure out where I might want to go for this vacation, and what would be good to check out. I am interested in landmarks that are of cultural significance, and I would also like to see any good spots that are home to native wild life.

I actually do no know much of anything about Nigeria, and that includes the aspects that I am most interested in seeing when I go on vacation. I don’t know much about the cultural history of the area, and what civilizations used to inhabit the area during ancient times. Read more…

Protecting Your Data with VPN/VPS

Posted by Comments off

When it comes to Internet security, users should be careful. There are malicious parties at many Wi-Fi hotspots, waiting to hack into a user’s personal information. Sensitive information such as emails, instant messages and credit card information are all susceptible to being hacked if they are not properly secured. This is where a Virtual Private Network, or VPN, or even a Windows VPS (Virtual Private Server)comes in handy. However, most users who do not know what a VPN consists of are likely to question how secure they really are. A VPN is able to protect users in ways that anti-virus software and firewalls cannot. Though these programs can be used in conjunction with the VPN, they only protect the device itself. They do not protect data transmitted to or from the device.

Internet Service Providers, or ISPs, are known for tracking user activities online. ISPs use this information as a means of inspecting, throttling and prioritizing the data that is sent to and from user devices. This means slower speeds for users who don’t connect with a VPN. When users access the Internet using a secure VPN, they defeat deep packet inspection. The ISP is not able to see the user’s activities. Read more…

Time Savers Help You to Have More Free Time with Family

Posted by Comments off

When my sister called me and said that she was worried about other mother, I was worried. She said mom was okay, but it would be best that mom longer lived on her own. My sister has three children, so that was not going to work. I am married with no kids. I called mom and invited her to come live with me and she accepted. After I hung up, I turned to my husband and said that things were about to change, and we would need to do things like look for someone to do food delivery in tampa residents and other things like that to help make things easier on us and mom. He said he had no problem with that. Things were about to change for us in our house in a big way.

I wanted to get the house in good shape before mom showed up. Read more…

Rocking the Curls for As Long As I Can

Posted by Comments off

My stylist told me a long time ago that I have 4C hair. I did not know what that meant. She said it meant type 4 curly hair. That is hair that has tight curls in every strand. I like how it hangs in front of my forehead just slightly close to my eyes. It frames my face perfectly. My husband tells me it really makes me look young. He said maybe too young because of the one time a coworker thought he was my dad. I still get a kick out of that. The thing he doesn’t know now is that the look is partly due to getting hair weaves.

Back when I first learned that I have 4C hair, I needed to keep it cut back and thinned out. Read more…
