The Human Slop Must Be Cleansed

I’ve done a lot of jobs in my life. I’ve been a tree service provider; climbing towering, gnarled trees in old people’s back yards to help trim the branches down. I’ve cleaned hospital beds as a janitorial service provider. I’ve been a security guard at a liquor store in the West end of the Bronx (I’m surprised I was never even shot). The number one intense job that I’ve ever had is the job that I had doing sewer cleaning in Bronx NY. Sewer cleaning. Let that sink into your mind and imagine the kind of reality-destroying horrors that you can come up with; it’s close to the truth. Let’s break down what a sewer is. A sewer is the system that lies beneath man’s civilization to provider an easy way to dispose of waste. Human waste. Continue reading

The Aborist is a Modern Day Tyrant

When you live near a miles large park, the last thing you want in your own backyard is another tree. I know that you’re thinking I’m some kind of horrible, arborist-hating tree killer but when you get down to facts and allergies you might be willing to show me some level of sympathy. I’m allergic to practically every tree in the northern hemisphere which hasn’t done any wonders for my mood to say the least. So, yeah, I do find myself calling for tree service in Queens NY whenever one of those leaved torturers begins to show it’s barky face around my parts. Down with trees, I say, and be thankful that you don’t have to suffer like myself. Continue reading

Online is a Better Shopping Experience

For me, the best place to buy sex toys in the UK is from an online store. When I tried to buy sex toys at a local shop in person, I was so embarrassed. I felt as if I was given funny looks by other people when I set foot into the store. Everything in the store was so new to me, and the sales people weren’t much help in explaining the various toys. I had to choose my own toy based on limited knowledge and experience, and what I did choose didn’t provide a pleasurable experience for me in the bedroom.

I never want to go back to that toy shop again. Buying online is much easier because I don’t have to deal with one major element: other people. There are no eyes from people who might be judging me for going into the store. There are no uninformative people to try to extract simple information from. If there’s a toy that I want to know about, the website has a simple description about it. Continue reading

An Oak Tree Took out Our Pool and Shed but We Are Ok

Well, it is that time of year again. The leaves are off the trees, the cold is rolling in and so is the windy winter weather. I knew we should have had our trees pruned and inspected by an arborist earlier in the year. We put it off because of other things we needed to buy with our budgeted money. Now we had to call a tree service in Brooklyn NY to not only remove a fallen tree and stump, but they also need to inspect the other trees on our property anyway. You know if one was rotten or infested with ants, then another one is also likely to be in the same shape.

When an oak falls, it really can wreak havoc on anything in its path. In our case it was the garden shed and the swimming pool. Both are a total loss. I am just glad that none of us were outside, and I am glad that the house was not hit. Continue reading

The Companion Can Do Anything

A friend who I talk to regularly called me on the phone one day and couldn’t stop talking about his senior companion in Long Island. My friend was older than me, but he was still pretty active, and I was curious as to why he needed a companion. He said that in his old age, he wanted someone to care for him and help him do things. He said that I might want to get a companion of my own. I never really thought about it before, but a companion is definitely useful.

I got a companion form the same place that my friend got one. My companion was a young man in his mid 30s. He made breakfast for me and it was one of the best meals I ever had. Continue reading

Earth Shattering and Glass Shattering

There was a earthquake in Brooklyn that shattered all of the glass in my home. Of all places for an earthquake to take place, one had to happen in Brooklyn, and it had to do damage to my home in the way it did. I don’t think anyone else on my street had the same kind of damage. I called a company that supplies custom glass in Brooklyn to have all of my windows and mirrors replaced. In the meantime, I put plastic wrap on the windows to keep bugs from flying in. At this time of the year, there are a lot of bugs that roam around, and they can be pretty annoying.

The glass people took measurements of my windows and bathrooms, and then gave me an estimate for the glass. I figured that the price would be a lot higher than the estimate that they gave me, but the price was pretty reasonable. Continue reading

From One Company to the Next

A roofing company in NYC did some roof repair on my home after part of the roof was damaged by a tree that had been struck by lightning. I thought all was well, until a month later, when the roof started falling apart at the site of the repairs. I tried contacting the company who did the repairs, but apparently they had gone out of business. Many people complained about work they had done before, and the company lost its ability to do repairs. They now have a lawsuit on their hands from many angry customers, including myself.

Since the company I initially used couldn’t do the repairs, I had to hire a new company to do it. Continue reading

We Got Bed Bugs on a School Field Trip That Included a Hotel Stay

I remember when our little girl was sent home by the nurse because she had head lice. Now that was super embarrassing. We have a nice apartment that we keep perfectly clean. I’m actually a clean freak according to my husband and our little girl. The nurse said our little one picked them up in school and that it was as common as kids catching a cold from one another. It has nothing to do with hygiene or cleanliness. Then we got bed bugs. Talk about devastating to my pride! However, a company that provides bed bug control in NYC told me that they were brought into our home. They did not originate there.

As the exterminator did his job getting rid of the bed bugs he asked me about recent travel. Continue reading

I Had to Get the Sidewalk Fixed

Department of Labor - Masonry Apprentice Contest ... LLC ...When I purchased a house on the outskirts of the Bronx, I was actually quite happy with just about everything to do with the house. What I was not so happy about was the property outside. There were a lot of things wrong with it, but the main thing I wanted to have taken care of first was getting the sidewalk fixed. I had no idea who to call to help me with this, so I just went online and did a search for sidewalk contractors in Bronx NY. I figured that someone would have to come up on the search results who could help me.

Well, Eden Roofing and Waterproofing is the company that I ended up hiring because of my search. I went to their website to see what services they offer, and I was happy to see that they do help fix sidewalks that are in disrepair. I was able to get a free quote, and I was actually surprised that it was as low as it was. Continue reading

Best Sewer Drain Cleaning Options

I had a friend over at my house to check out an issue I have been having, and apparently I have a clogged, or partially clogged sewer drain leading from my house. I did not even know that was possible, but my friend knows a good bit about plumbing. He is not able to fix it though and so I will need to hire expert drain cleaning in Bergen County NJ to come and take care of this issue. He said that it could get pretty bad if it were not taken care of soon, and I do not really want to think about what could happen if the drain going back into the sewer gets completely clogged.

Apparently, my friend does not think that it is completely clogged right now. But I do not want to risk this issue at all. Continue reading

Marketing Potential with Mobile Apps

I am trying to learn how to better market my company, and there are a lot of new options that are available for marketing. In particular, I am looking at this self serve mobile advertising service and it seems like it would be a good idea for me to check out. I have not heard about this sort of thing before, and I am kind of excited about the potential that this site has for my business. It seems like there are a lot of opportunities that could be opened to me, through the use of something like this.

I have paid a company to advertise for me in the past, but I stopped, because it was not really generating the type of results that I wanted. It ended up being more, or less, just a waste of money for the company and so I had to stop paying for it. But with this option, I will be able to make my own ads, and then post them at my own discretion. I like the fact that there are so many different apps available to advertise on, on this site, because it really helps to pick the right places to advertise.

I think that I have a pretty good idea of the market for my company’s products, and so I think it would be a good idea for me to go ahead and try to figure out if I can make this feasible, or if it is not really going to be a good marketing solution. On the surface, it looks like it will work quite well, but of course, you have to get down into the details, before you are really able to figure out something like that. That is what I am going to attempt to figure out at the present moment.

Knowing How to Wash Your Clothes

I have a shameful secret that I never let any girl I date know. It’s a problem that I have tried to remedy but to which no solution has been found to combat the sheer laziness that possesses me. I can’t do my own laundry. There is no doubt in my mind that I am a man who is lacking in life skills that, if the women he dated discovered he lacked simple everyday skills, would be ridiculed by them ruthlessly. I even have to resort to using a dry cleaner in Paterson NJ to ensure that my clothes are ready for the week.

It’s true that I do work a lot. A whole lot. Continue reading

Affordable Cosmetic Dentistry Near Bend

Il Ragia di TangiaurI would like to get some dental work done in the near future. I have been missing a couple of teeth for a couple of months now, but I did not really have the money to do anything about it previously. However, I realize that the missing teeth look kind of awful, and I am a man who is concerned about his appearance. I think most single men are more concerned about their appearance, than men who are married. Anyway, I need to find a bend cosmetic dentistry office that will be able to see me in the near future.

I am hoping to get the missing teeth replaced with some sort of dental implants. I am a little bit worried about the process of having dental implants inserted in my mouth. Continue reading

One of Her Favorite Birthday Gifts

I was trying to think of the perfect gift to give to my niece for her thirteenth birthday. She is not a typical girl, which made it even harder for me to decide. While a lot of girls her age are interested in fashion and boys, she is interested mainly in music and books. I did a search to find the perfect gift for music lover, and I had a lot of different suggestions that I was able to look through. None of them screamed out to me that it was the perfect gift though until I came to one site that was a handmade plaque that was absolutely perfect.

I wanted the gift to be something that she would enjoy but would also let her know that I appreciate that she is exploring the things she is most passionate about. This plaque has a musical instrument that is standing upright, and the word ‘love’ surrounds it. Continue reading

My Mom Needed In-home Care

My mom told me even before she was diagnosed that she would end up getting dementia. It is something that most members of her family have gone through, and she did not feel she would be an exception. I wish I could say she was wrong, but she was diagnosed with it even before she was of retirement age. Thankfully, it was just early signs, but she already knew enough about the disease to know what to expect from it. That is why just a few short years later, she did a search for dementia care in Brooklyn.

She knew that she was going to need help as it progressed more, but she was still not prepared to leave her home yet either. She has worked hard all her life to have it, and I can definitely understand her desire to stay there. I am just grateful that she had the foresight to make arrangements with a home care company that has experience with people who have dementia. If my mom was in any danger of hurting herself, I would not have been happy with these arrangements, but I knew that she was in good hands with them. Continue reading

There Are Ways out of Foreclosure So Do Not Give Up Hope

You know, I would reckon that people have actually killed themselves over financial worries. When stuff like that hits the news, you just get a report on the act, not much about the details that lead up to it. Can you imagine being under threat of losing your car, your savings (if you are lucky to have a few bucks) and even your house? I used to feel so much for people in financial trouble. We helped where we could. Then one day our home was on the list for short sales in NYC.

I did not plan for my industry to pretty much go belly up overnight. We worked for a Defense contractor who lost all of his contracts with the government except one. The winds of politics blow and can knock down a lot of things you used to rely on. I was one year short of seniority that would have kept my job. I found other work almost right away, but not at the rate of pay I was making. Continue reading

Best Hotel Prices in Cody

I am going to stay a couple nights in the area near Cody, Wyoming, and I need to find a place to stay. I have some family in the area, but I am not too close to them, and so I would not want to ask them to stay with them for a few nights. I do not know them well enough to do that, but I guess I will try to find a hotel instead. So I am looking at info about Cody Wyoming hotels and how much it would cost to stay at one for a few nights.

I wonder if I can get a discounted rate on the hotel, based on the number of days I stay. Continue reading

She Needed Some Help at Home

I could tell something was wrong with my mom a few months ago. She would not tell me at first, but then she finally confided in me that she was worried she was no longer able to live on her own. She was terrified of losing her independence though, so she was putting off moving into a nursing home for as long as possible. When I realized that was what was wrong with her, I understood her fear. I knew that there had to be a happy medium, which is how I found senior care in Queens NY options.

I did an online search to see if I could find a forum where others could give me some suggestions. Continue reading

I Guess That We Need a New Roof

Sam and Jimmy and I talked to the building inspector after he got done with looking at the place. We figured that we knew what he was going to say and we did. I guess that we need a new roof. The building inspector gave us the names of a half dozen companies that do roof repair and roof installation in NYC. It is not like any of them are likely to tell us any price that we are going to like, but we are going to have to figure out what is the best thing to do and just bite the bullet. It is not like you can wait around for the roof to fall down and this one has taken a lot of abuse over the past few years. Of course you are supposed to replace the roof ever so often and if you do not do it, then you are going to eventually regret it. Continue reading

Wine Making Runs in the Family

I’ve tried a lot of wines in my life, but I’ve never had the opportunity to make my own. I found a winery that does wine making in NJ, and went there to have my own wine made. I wanted to make a red wine that would go with anything I desired. I prefer red wine because of its flavor, but I’ll drink white wine as well. I experimented with some different wines before settling on a flavor that I liked the best. I wanted some of my friends and family to taste test the wine, so I invited them over to my home.

My friends were shocked to learn that there was a local place where you could make your own wine. I poured everyone a glass of the wine, and we all tasted it at the same time with a clean palate. Everyone loved the wine and how much body it had. They thought the wine was so good that I should sell it to other people. I wasn’t too sure about that, but I was glad that they enjoyed the wine.

My father wanted to have his own wine made for his wedding anniversary. He wanted to have a romantic dinner with my mother and thought that a homemade wine would be the perfect beverage for it. He went to the winery and sampled some flavors to get an idea of what would be best for the type of meal he was planning. Once he made his wine, he bottled it and even put a special label on it. He cooked a steak and lobster dinner for my mother and they had the most romantic evening. They drank the entire bottle of wine, so I didn’t get a chance to sample some of it, but I’m glad it went to good use.

The Easiest and Most Secure Child Seats

Any parent that has ever had to drive their kid regularly can quickly vouch for the importance of the best car seats. Not only does a good car seat keep your child safe, even if things go terribly wrong, but they have a lot of other advantages too. There are tons of options out there aimed to fulfill a wide variety of needs, with differences between models covering everything from weight and size to cushioning and safety harnesses. At the end of the day, there are some things that people can skim on and not notice a difference, but this is certainly not one of them.

Of course the top priority for most parents is to be sure that their child is safe and secure, protected from any accidents and unable to get out of the seat. Great cushioning and things like 5 point safety harnesses take care of much of this, though it is also important to make sure that you get a seat rated for the proper size and weight. Continue reading

How We Went from No Internet Presence to the Leading Website in the Industry Using a New York Search Optimization Company

I see our website sort of like a new parent sees a child. You want to give your child the best chance of success in life, and your business website should have opportunities for success too. The difference is that this baby, pardon the pun, was going to either make or break us. The items we sell were now available online with overnight shipping. Where we used to have customers drive a couple of hundred miles to come to us, now they just place and order and wait. We needed a New York search engine optimization company to help us build a website that would get us an online presence fast.

When the fuel prices started to climb is when we started to see less and less long distance customers driving to us to get parts. They used to tell us it was nice to be able to drive in, even if it was far away, so they could see the parts before buying them. They would bring in old equipment they were replacing to compare it with new parts and whole products. As that segment of our business began to dwindle, we figured out that those customers were now buying online through a competitor of ours in another state. Continue reading

We Got an XFINITY Home Security System with Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Protection

We saw on the news that a guy we speak too when we are out walking had his house burn down. I heard the fire whistles and saw the trucks go by, but I had no idea it was his house until I saw the late news. He and his family are okay, but a segment of the interview got me thinking. He said they did not even hear the smoke alarm in the basement. After that, I called to see what the XFINITY home security cost would be for a full home alarm system with smoke and carbon monoxide protection.

Smoke alarms are great, but they may not be heard when they are on another level and not interconnected. Continue reading

The Perks of Having Good Internet

If you’re anything like me then you love to game online. Some of my best memories in life are me and my friends huddling over an xbox playing Halo together. I know it sounds cocky, but I’m really good at first person shooters. My twitch reflexes are top notch and I’m very fast. But I’m not good if I’m lagging and that’s a problem you’ll encounter a lot when you game online. Because of this, I had to make sure that I had good internet. So I decided to look into rhode island internet for my place. I found a good deal on this one package and so far it has been working great. Continue reading
