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…

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.

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…

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…

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…

A Pro is a Much Better Choice for Painting

Posted by Comments off

I scrimped and did whatever I could do buy a home after my husband passed away 5 years ago. He and I had always talked about when we would get our first home, but we lost that chance together. My son often heard us talking about it, so I vowed that I would follow through with the goal for the sake of my son. He loves the new place that I bought, and he has been excited about helping to fix it up. I was, too. Last week, I had to find a good painter in Bergen County NJ to help us do some of the work, though.

My son is 16, and he is not impressed by much in life. But he was impressed when I was able to get a place with the average salary that I make. Read more…

Switching Energy Companies to Save Money

Posted by Comments off

Every now and again, I will look at my bills to see if I can get a better deal elsewhere. Sometimes I can, and sometimes I can’t. It’s because of those times that I can that I continue to do it though, and I have saved money on car insurance, home insurance, cell phone rates and my TV programming as a result. One place I had never thought to look though was my energy provider. When my neighbor told me she had found a great resource to check out the competing energy companies and ended up getting on a better plan, I was definitely interested in finding out more information on it for myself too.

She told me the website she went to, and I was really impressed with the layout. Everything was extremely organized on the site so I was able to see the different companies that service my area along with important information about each one. For example, Just Energy is one of the companies that I could have chosen from. Read more…

Franchising is a Great Oppurtunity

Posted by Comments off

There are thousands and thousands of companies in the world, and it is really weird to see them almost everywhere. When you think of a type of store usually one specific brand comes to mind. That is because they set up franchises all over the country and world to make sure that their name is out there. It is one of the best business moves that a company can make. If you own a business and someone comes up to you and talks about franchising you need to jump on board. That is how you become a millionaire with hundreds of different stores in your name.

So How Do Figure out Which Power Company to Use?

Posted by Comments off

I never had to think about this until my company transferred me to our Dallas Ft Worth office, but down here they let you pick your own power company. Of course you have to figure out which options are available, you can go to this web page, energyproviderstexas.com and plug in your location. It will tell you which power companies are available in your location. I never had to think about it before and honestly it does not seem as though there is going to be so much difference in price from one to the next. You can be sure that if the one of them cut their prices the others would match it more or less. At least they would match that price cut in any area where they needed to do it. Read more…

I Have Really Enjoyed Playing the Clarinet

Posted by Comments off

DJANGO REINHARDT | THE GYPSY GODFATHER OF HOT JAZZ GUITAR « The ... When I was young, I always wanted to play an instrument of some sort. My oldest brother played the viola, as did my mother, and my youngest brother played the guitar. Playing a string instrument was never something that appealed to me, though. The summer I was going into junior high, I decided to join our school band. Problem was, I had to find an instrument I wanted to play, teach myself the basics and be prepared for the first day of class. After much consideration I decided on playing the Clarinet.

No one in my family had ever played one so I knew I was in for a long summer. Read more…

Does Anyone Have Experience Playing the Gutjo?

Posted by Comments off

Django Reinhardt Gypsy UK CD ALBUM (442937)I became interested in acquiring a gutjo after reading that Django Reinhardt had been a gutjo player before the caravan fire which nearly killed him at the age of 18 (if I recall correctly at least). It is my understanding that if you can play a guitar you should be to play a gutjo, apparently because they are strung in the same manner. I know that the lead singer of the Old Crow Medicine Show plays a gutjo as well and from listening very carefully I believe that I can tell the difference between the sound of his instrument and that of a banjo. I have no interest in learning the banjo, that is too complicated for me to learn at my advanced age. Read more…
