The winter toy season is just around the corner. Most people would look at me funny if I said that to them in the middle of summer, but for a toy maker, that season is always a day away. I have a new toy that I think will be a big hit around the holidays, and I’ve begun the necessary steps to make sure that it will be available. I’ve been producing a generous stock and had a video ad made by going to http://big3.sg. The ad is pretty funny and does a good job of conveying the idea of the toy.
I got the idea of the toy from a lot of other toys that I played with as a child. The toy has a lot of functions that one would probably not see together. It can take on a lot of forms, and it can even have lights and sounds because of the batteries in its components. The great thing about the toy is that it can be rearranged however the user wants it. The genius of the toy is that it has interlocking parts that can be taken apart and put together at will. This idea took a lot of trial and error to make.
Once I got a good prototype of the toy working, I was able to start shopping around for people who could help me bring the toy to the mass market. I was met with some rejections at first, and it really hit me in the heart. I was almost ready to give up and start working on something else, when I got a few calls from some of the big companies. They wanted to see me in person and have a live dem of the toy. After I showed it to them, they wanted me.
I thought my dislike for cockroaches was bad enough. When I found out we had termites, I was really grossed out. They were actually eating the floor framing away right next to my desk in my office at home. They do not make any noise you can hear. My dog knew they were there. She would paw at the floor and whine at me. I could not figure out what was going on with her. I ended up calling termite control in New York City. The reason is because one day in the basement I looked up at the ceiling area that was the floor right under my desk and saw a couple holes in a floor joist. I pushed at it with my finger and it crumbled into dust. The termites were feasting on the floor.
The floor was severely damaged and you could not even tell by giving it a cursory look. If it was not for the interest my dog had in the floor and me seeing those couple of tiny holes in the wood, I would not have known until my desk wet through the floor. It did not feel weak when I walked on it. The carpeting always had a thick pad, and I thought that was what I was feeling under my feet. A large section of the floor had to be replaced after the pest control experts rid the house of the termites.
Termites are great at eating away the middle parts of wood and leaving a thin layer on the outside intact. Unless you know what to look for, you might miss them even being there. And they can eat a lot of wood each day. I think I heard on TV that they can eat about five feet of wood per day! Fortunately, their path as through the floor. The wall framing had no damage whatsoever.
I have made so many New Year’s resolutions that I am ashamed of myself. Not for making them, but for not keeping them. Some I even fail at in the first few minutes of the new year. One thing always hard for me was starting a diet in the winter. How can you let Thanksgiving go without indulging? Then there are the Christmas parties that are followed by the New Year’s celebration. After that is plenty of leftovers. Not this year. Nope, this year I’m just looking for the best coupons for Medifast diet options. I have been on it since just before Thanksgiving and I have been losing weight. No way I am going to give up now.
This is the first success I have had in weight loss for a very long time. I needed to lose over 100 pounds. Medifast has helped me reach a milestone goal of dropping 25 pounds during the fall and holiday season. I was not going to put off getting started. I resolved to lose it now while the opportunity was there. I was not going to use the excuse of wanting to try grandma’s pumpkin pie at Christmas, or worry about how much sauerkraut and Polish sausage I would eat for New Year’s. With the portion control of Medifast, I did not have to worry about it.
The rest of the family told me how they were going to get started on their weight loss plans after the leftovers ran out later in January. I was not having any of that and decided to get started right away no matter what time of year it was. The initial immediate success was very encouraging to say the least. By the time they drop the ball in New York, I will be down by at least 40 pounds. That is really good for me!
I just turned in my box for my cable television service and I am going to try to go in another direction with my television service going forward, because I still have a bad taste in my mouth from dealing with my cable provider previously, and so I think it would be a good idea for me to check into switching into satellite DirecTV. I have thought about it a lot in the past, but I have never actually given it a shot, and it seems like it might be something that could really work out well for me. So I am going to call DirecTV and try to find out what their prices are like and to see if they have any promotional deals going on right now, and what their best prices are.
In general, I am going to be looking to purchase a television package that includes a lot of sports channels, and in particular, basketball channels, because even though the NFL playoffs are still going on, and I am going to watch all of those games, I really want to start watching more basketball, because the college and NBA seasons are going to start to get more interesting going forward, and I really want to follow what happens closely.
I am excited about this year for my college team, and I think that they have a chance of going far in the tournament. I do not want to say that too many times though, because I feel like I might mess up our chances if I talk too much about it. That is usually what happens when I get my hopes up too much, but I guess I will just keep watching and see what happens, when it happens. I think things are looking up for them though.
We sell aggregates, mulch, dirt and other such products usually by weight. We deliver, but we also have customers that come to us. Our commercial clients come in with dump trucks and pickup trucks. We just use a loader to fill the beds of the trucks with the amount of product they order. Often, for mulch and other things that may be measured by the square yard instead of weight, the customer comes out ahead because we overfill. We use a crane scale when more accurate weights are needed.
We have scoop bags that we lay on the ground. They have cables at the corners. A loader dumps product on the laid out heavy duty fabric. We lift the cables up, and the sheet closes into a bag shape. At the end of the crane is a scale. This crane scale gives us the weight in the scoop bag. We also prefill specialty bags that are more like tubes. They tie at one end, you fill it, cut it and then tie the other end of the tube. Each filled tube is able to support its own weight for the most part. Materials that would pierce the fabric are contained in a metal framework container. Customers must return those frames after they empty the bags inside them. They pay a deposit.
Manufacturing facilities that use our aggregates, sand and other materials often buy product in these types of containers. They can easily be moved around using forklifts. A homeowner that needs a lot of mulch might buy a tube of it and haul it home in the back of his pickup. He just cuts the bag open in his driveway, and shovels the product into a wheelbarrow distributing muclh around the yard a little at a time. Then he just disposes of or recycles the fabric tube. It is a very profitable business to be in, especially in the spring and summer-our busy season.
I want to help my dad to kick the bottle, because his drinking has really become a family crisis, and it is one that needs to be solved in the near future. I know that he is predisposed to alcoholism, and he has drank a lot of my life, but he has never drank like this before and it is really scary. I want to find the best alcohol rehab centers in the area and see if I can make arrangements for my father to go to one of them.
I guess the breaking point for my dad was when my mom left him over his drinking. He wasn’t even drinking that much back then. But my mom was just tired of the fact that he seemed to need to drink every night of the week, or at least, most nights of the week. But he was only having a few beers at a time back then, and it was a relatively harmless addiction compared to the depths of alcoholism that he has fallen into at the current moment.
I am worried that if I am not able to get him to change his ways that he is going to end up dead in the next couple of years. It can’t be good for him in any way. I know that he spends a tremendous amount of money on alcohol, and it is a wonder that he is able to still pay his bills after all of the money that he spends on drinking. I can’t let my father die from this disease, and even though I know he will not want to go to rehab, I have to figure out some way to convince him that it is in his best interests. Hopefully he will give in and go to rehab.
My wife said it felt like we would be living out in the woods when we looked at one of the many houses we were going to have to choose from to get out of our apartment. The real estate agent had us stop by to look at it. The house was not at all what we were looking for. Or so we thought at first. We had been looking into getting something in the suburbs not a rural area. The agent told us there was no cable so we would could go with Direct TV like the previous owner had.
We begrudgingly went into the house to look at it. We were floored! I mean our jaws dropped. Sure, it looked great on the outside, but the inside was even more fabulous. It had everything you could want in a place from space to eco-friendliness and technology. There were 50 acres included with most of it old growth forest. We knew we could not afford it. Or so we thought! The owner was highly motivated to sell fast. It was inherited by city living children of a rather reclusive couple.
We never considered rural living, but this place was so nice. We never regretted a moment signing on the dotted line for the mortgage. We have been happy here now for many years. I thought I could not go without my cable, but the Direct TV is actually superior to the cable I used to have. The picture is perfect, HD channels are not a problem and neither are local channels. We have every bit of tech we were looking for in a house in the suburbs with even more ecologically friendly options such as solar power generation and geothermal heat. This place really has it all. It is worth far more than we paid for it. The entertainment room with the giant screen television connected to Direct TV is bigger than our old apartment!
Started training to be a line man, which of course is not the greatest job in the world because you are going to be out in the weather when it is the worst and you can be sure the electric companies in Texas will never need you much in the 9 to 5 type of deal starting out. It is pretty obvious that you are going to start out on the worst part of the deal and you can be sure that there is going to be a lot of work when it is really bad. The thing is that you could have an ice storm in North Carolina or South Carolina and they would ship you up there. You see convoys of power trucks heading to places where they have had really bad weather. There will be forty or fifty trucks headed up there and of course they are going to be out in the bad weather for 18 hours a day until it is fixed.
Of course when my power is out I am not going to be thinking about the line man who fixes it or how rough his life is. I would just want him to drop every other thing that was going on and focus on solving my problem. Once when we were kids they had a huge ice storm in the High point area of North Carolina. We had no power for more than a week, in fact I think it was ten or eleven days with no power. You really come to appreciate all of the conveniences of modern life after you go that long with none of them. You have to get batteries for the radio and that is all that you have to entertain you. In fact you have to save the batteries.
No one wants to find themselves in the position of not having money to get through until the next paycheck is doled out where they work. However, we were living from paycheck to paycheck after the cutbacks. We were paying our bills and just getting by. We even cut back on a lot of things. However, the budget was so tight there was no extra for a car repair or trip to the dentist. When both were needed the same week, that was when I looked into the cash advance loans company offers that were available.
We needed cash immediately. There is no point going to a bank for a short-term loan for an urgent situation such as a car repair or tooth extraction. By the time you got your money, you would have probably lost your job since you did not have a car to get to work, or you would be in the hospital due to tooth pain. A cash advance loans company can get you the money needed fast. However, you do have to pay attention to the whole deal. As long as you realize your interest rate, the total you will be paying back for the loan and the loan payment arrangements, then there will not be any surprises. My advice is to not neglect to take the time to understand the loan details just because you need the money really bad.
The cash advance loans company fine print is straightforward. There is no doubt that the interest is higher than a conventional loan. However, the speed at which you can get the money and the leniency most places have for questionable credit are part of the appeal. Sure, it would be great to just be in the position of never needing extra money, but that is not how it is with real people who work for a living.
Hack and I got this place today. It is a little beach house that needs a ton of work. The guy who owns it knew that he could not get the vacationers to rent the place. So Hack and I made this deal with him. He is going to provide the materials and we are going to fix the place up. Of course for Hack it is not a big deal and he just tells me what to do. We love it here, we were waiting for the Texas energy company to come and hook up our electricity and a bunch of girls came walking through our yard with a cooler full of Lone Star and Pearl. It was like a dream, they were apparently on Spring Break from Texas Christian and all of them were feeling pretty good and looking a whole lot better. We got distracted and the guy who was supposed to turn the power on nearly left before Hack went running after him.
Obviously the girls are not impressed by this place, but you got to act like you got game no matter what and we are doing pretty good. Apparently there are a lot of people here for spring break and we are having a good deal of fun. Of course we have to work from early in the morning, so we are really light on sleep. A lot of times we come home in the afternoon and take a nap before we go out for a while. It is really sad to have to come home when things are ready to jump off, but we both have bills to pay and I am just chasing girls. It is extra great on the weekends and we get a three day weekend with the job we have now.
It can be really dangerous to leave a tree that is mostly dead in a yard. I learned that the hard way, but it could have been so much worse. I thought because the tree was not close to the house, it was not a big deal if the tree just died on its own and fell. I wasn’t thinking that it could fall into the fence and cause some damage though. When that happened, I knew that I had to find a company that does tree removal in Queens County, NY before another falling branch caused even more damage to my fence.
I have quite a few animals, and I did not want them to be able to leave through the broken fence. So, I had to deal with not only getting a tree service out but getting a fencing company out too. I decided to have the tree removed first, just in case any more large branches fell and crushed another section of the fence. I figured that we would be able to rig something up for the few days that it would take to get the fence professionally fixed.
I went online to find a tree service that would be able to help with this problem. I wanted someone who would be able to come out quickly because I knew that we were due to have some heavy storms. The last thing I wanted was wind knocking more branches off since they were already in such a weakened state. The company that I called was able to come out the next day, and they had the tree completely down in just a few hours. It did not take them much longer to get everything cleaned up, and they even helped me move something in front of the broken piece of the fence. I will definitely use them again if I have need to in the future!
I knew that I wanted to buy Brazilian hair bundles, but I did not know where I wanted to get them from. I am really picky when it comes to my hair, because it is what gets me the majority of my compliments. I have a good personality, but it is my hair that gets people looking at me. I have to say, I really do like that, which is why I am so picky. When I decided to get hair extensions, I did a lot of research on them at first.
I know that hair extensions are just like anything else in this world. Some of them are really nice, and some of them are made very cheap. I wanted to make sure that the extensions that I purchased were top quality because in addition to wanting my hair to look nice, I also don’t like to waste my money. That is why I was really careful with my research, and I know that I picked the right company even before I placed the order. That is because I was able to watch a very informative video on the site, and the woman in the video had amazing hair.
I knew that my hair would look just as nice, especially if I styled it just a bit differently. I was planning on just getting a little bit to see how it worked out at first, but they were having a sale that was just too good to pass up. I was able to buy two bundles and get one free, so I did that a few times over. I wear my hair in so many different ways now that I have all of this volume, and I get even more comments than I ever had before. That is why I wanted to do this with the hair extensions, because it made great hair even more fabulous.
I’ve learned a thing or two since I’ve moved to Texas. Checking out this page showed me just how many energy providers there are in the Lone Star state and made me realize how resource rich Texas really is. It’s surprising to find so many providers in a single state considering where I lived previously we only had two for the entirety of the state. It’s nice being able to have that power of consumer choice even for something like an energy provider but I do admit to wishing that my money had more of an impact on what kind of energy is made available to me.
I’m definitely in the camp for green energy. It’s time that the United States learns from the Germans and actually begins to harness solar energy on a real scale rather than these tiny fields that do very little. Germany is the first nation in the world to have over half of all its energy coming in from alternative sources of energy rather than being dependent upon fossil fuels or finite resources. America has the ability to stand at the forefront of the green, alternative resource movement but due to its dependency upon corporations and the likes of Saudi Arabia we’re doing very little.
Our dependency upon corporations is both a blessing and something of a curse. While they can lobby powerfully for policy that suits their interests they are also the institutions with the real money to make progress. While companies like Alphabet (formerly Google) are pushing for real change by investing in their own technology that should ease the human driven pressure on the environment and on global climate, it’s going to be policy makers that truly help shape the future. Without the corporations being more positive toward renewables, it’s going to be a struggle.
I relied mostly on word of mouth for my website because I served a very local clientele. When I had some requests from people who lived nearly 900 miles away, they explained that their mother lives in the same town and told them about my website. That alone made me realize that I was missing out on the bigger picture and had me doing an online search for SEO small business. I realized that if I could get my site on the front page of search engine results, i might actually be able to have a wider customer base.
The only reason I even understood what had to be done is because I do a lot of online research and purchases. It is very rare when I will go the second page on a search engine results page. Actually, it is very rare for me to go to the bottom of the first page. I usually find what I want within the first several results, and I knew that I needed to get my own website in that position on the first page of search results too. I had put myself in a very small mind position, thinking that I could only serve local customers, but I now had a nationwide mindset.
I was able to find a company relatively quickly. I did what I do with any other thing I am looking for. I looked at the first few results, and I was impressed by one company more than the others. It did not take long to secure this company’s services, and they had me on the first page of search engine results faster than I thought possible. I went from having a modest business to one where I had to hire several people to help me out. That is more than I could have imagined!
The land is a bit out of town, it takes about thirty five minutes to get back in town. However it is only about twenty minutes from the plant and so it is not that inconvenient for me to get to work. If I need to get into town that will be a good drive obviously, so I shall have to get all my business done when I do go in. Right now it is all farmland, but it has not been farmed for a long time. I am trying to get power now, I went here to check on which electric providers are available in this area. I am going to try to do as much of the work as I can myself, but I need to get the infrastructure required to start the job. Obviously I need to have electric power to run my tools. After that I am wondering how much work it would be to put in the foundation. To start off I think I might erect this prefabricated metal building that a friend of mine is willing to let me have. It is about twenty eight feet long and twelve feet wide so it is big enough to store all of my stuff and I could temporarily live in it if I put heat and air in it. That would make it a lot easier for me to take my time working on the house. I need the time for a couple of reasons, namely money and the fact that I am going to need help from people with the necessary skills. I know quite a few guys who can do all of the work that is required, but they are going to help me only when it fits in their plans. They will do it when they have no other work obviously.
I am really excited for the Christmas shopping season to begin. I know for a lot of people, this starts on the day after Thanksgiving, otherwise known as Black Friday. For me though, my shopping starts on Cyber Monday, which is the first Monday after Thanksgiving. I usually have one big item that I want to buy. Last year, it was a nice laptop. This year, I am most excited about the Cyber Monday 2015 TV deals that are sure to be amazing. I have two TVs already, but I am looking for one in my bedroom. If the deals are incredible, I may end up replacing the one in my living room too because it is getting older now.
I found a really cool site that has a lot of information on it about the Cyber Monday TV sales from last year. I know some people may not understand why that comes in so handy, but I love that I can see the deals like that. It shows me the companies that sold the TVs, the brand of the TV, the model type, size, and prices too. It shows the sale price as well as the amount of money that was saved off the regular price of the TV.
This helps me so much because it lets me research the kind of TV I want. Seeing that all of the major brands like Samsung, LG, Vizio, Sanyo and others shows me that these companies like Walmart and Amazon are taking consumers seriously. They had the best brands out in sizes ranging from 19 inches up to 75 inches. That 75 inch TV was over 1,000 dollars off too! That is why I am thinking about getting one for my living room too, because I will never see savings like this again until next Cyber Monday!
I have just purchased a house that I would like to sell again in the future. It needs some major work done to it before I will be able to sell it. I am kind of worried that I have bitten off more than I can chew with this project. But instead of worrying about all of the things that need to get done, I am just going to start getting things done. First thing is hiring expert roof repair in Essex county NJ because the roof is in serious need of repair and I think that is the worst part of the house.
I am not sure if the entire roof needs to be replaced, or if it can be repaired without replacing the entire roof. I am kind of leaning towards the former option though, if I had to guess. It just does not look like it is in very good shape. The roof is sagging in one area, and I think that is because of water damage. I am not sure how long water has been getting underneath the shingles of the roof. But any amount of time is too long, in my opinion.
I also have take out all of the flooring in the house, and replace it with new flooring. I am going to put nice hardwood floors in a large part of the house. I want to put tile in the bathrooms and in the kitchen though, because I think it is easier to clean and less likely to be damaged. I am not sure what else I will have to do, but I need to inspect the house thoroughly and try to make a list of things to be fixed. I hope to have that list made by the end of the day today.
I expect a lot out of the services that I pay monthly for. That means that I want the best that I can get from an Internet Service Provider. If they try to sell me data caps, I’ll switch – even if it means I’ll be sold a slower speed from the competition. I don’t want to be throttled. I don’t want to be montiored by some ‘super cookie’ like Verizon and AT&T were planting their customers with. Treat me well, like the La Grande or Frontier services have and I’ll stick with your provider. When I call, don’t sell me on something I clearly have no interest in.
I’ve worked for cable companies in the past: Insight Communications, Charter and Comcast. If you’ve never been party to working for a cable provider, those poor workers have no choice but to try and up-sell their customers a service or new package. Imagine this: you’re calling to complain because your Internet is down, right? In that moment you want nothing but your Internet to work but here this so called technician on the other end of the call is actually trying to sell you something. What madness can this be? And yet, they quite literally have no choice. It’s their job.
This is the disconnect. Calling a technician should be just that: calling them to fix the problem at hand. The executives have decided that you need to be sold something at all levels of a call. This is how little they actuallycare about you. You’re not someone calling in with a problem, you’re a potential customer calling in that they can sell a new package to. It’s absurd that they think to treat us like this! I just want my Internet, I want it to work and I want it to work well. If I wanted anything else, I’d call that department instead.
I have to figure out a few things before I can get the project off the ground. For one thing I think that I shall have to get a transcription service to make transcripts of the podcasts for the archives. That only makes sense and the idea would be to use time stamps on it, so that you could see exactly where to go if you wanted to listen to the particular section of audio. This appears to be important because of the way that people are using the content. There is a lot of educational value if you know how to do it the right way. The information is there and you need to have it set up so that people know what it is and how to get to it. In fact you can read a transcript in a fraction of the time that it takes to listen to a podcast. Most of all you want to have it set up so that people can tell what you are looking at.
The big thing is just to have the information there so that people can look at what they will find in the podcast. Obviously a lot of the time people like me are going to be listening to these things when they can not read, but you want to know if it is worth the time for you to read it. I listen to podcasts in the car when I am driving to work and back home from work. Then I put it on when I am working out in the gym or when I am running. You get to use that time to soak up stuff that you are interested in. Of course it is easy to just put anything on, but the trick is to find the right thing.
