It’s been a crazy winter, hasn’t it? From ‘thunder snow’ storms to polar vortexes, the United States has been slammed like it has never been slammed before. I can’t remember in recent history of any sort of ‘vortex’ bringing below freezing temperatures like this one did. We had so much ice on our trees we cut them down, forced to find dumpster rental in new york city. I was truly shocked by how much damage the ice storms caused in our area – New York City is typically very resistant to this sort of thing and we see plenty of snow every year. Being a native of Kentucky, I used to foolishly believe that I knew what Winter meant but in reality I knew nothing at all in that regard. (more…)
My parents are moving out of their home, and they will be moving into a retirement community in Florida. It is actually a pretty nice place, and it seems more like a resort, than your typical retirement community. Anyway, I would like to fix up their house, and I need to get it painted. I want to find a painter in ridgewood nj that will do a really good job on the house, without charging me an arm and a leg to do it. I am trying to get the house fixed up, as much as I can, for the least amount of money possible. That is because, my parents would like me to the sell the house in the near future, and I know that they really need the money. (more…)
I did not have any idea that I would be remodeling my house until this last year. Even though my house was nearly 40 years old, I still thought that rooms like my kitchen and bathrooms looked okay. That all changed when my mom had her kitchen remodeled. When I went to her house for a three day visit, I was shocked at the difference. I knew then that I wanted to have my kitchen redone too, so I did a search for kitchen remodeling in bergen county nj when I returned home after my visit. I looked at several companies, but I ended up going with the one that had excellent references and one of the lowest quotes. I also liked that their timetable in getting my kitchen completely done was a week ahead of the competition’s own timetables. The main difference was that I wanted to have an island put into the center of the kitchen. I have a large kitchen, but the majority of it was just open space. (more…)
Just finally finished getting things cleared up after the storm. It took us a really long time to find a good tree service in westchester ny, because all of those guys were busy and we were out of town when the storm hit. Our neighbor called us up and told us that there were trees down everywhere. He told us that our burglar alarm was going off, probably because something had broken a window, but that it looked as though the trees had mostly missed the house. This was true, a tree had fall almost exactly parallel to the front of the house. I had three trees down in the front and a huge oak tree went down in the back. Of course that oak tree made a big mess, but it was not a huge problem as it was about forty feet from the house and not in the way of anything. (more…)
When I got interested in handling more of the details of trading in the stock market on my own, I was looking for a general guide to help me out. I had, up to this point, completely relied on a broker to make any stock trades I wanted. There were not that many. I had not been active in trading other than watching my mutual funds and retirement plan at work. Then I started doing a few trades of individual stocks online through a brokerage account I had. I wanted more information in order to make better trades. I started subscribing to different investment newspapers and magazines. I watched training videos in trading online offered by different market experts. I slowly began to see that I needed access to a well designed software that could help me monitor and track market trends in the areas I was interested in investing in. I found that in the Auto Binary Signals software put out by Roger Pierce. When I ordered the software, I watched the long training video he had that explained all about the software. (more…)
I finally got the bank to go ahead and give us the money. We had everything else. The land originally belonged to my uncle. He had planned to give it to his son, but the two of them are basically dead to one another now. It is a beautiful little five acre plot from what used to be my great grandfather’s farm. I am going to try to find a find home security installers to help me figure out what to do about that part of it. I have this really great contractor, a guy I went to school with. He does not really usually build normal sized houses though and he is telling me that he likes to build houses that are ultra efficient. That is what he went to college to learn and he is looking at this house as sort of a little proving ground for some ideas that he has.
In essence he is going to start out by using the land and the sun to help him out. He will make the house a bit submerged in the ground. That way it is going to stay a pretty constant temperaturedown in the lower part of the house. It was easy for me to understand. Our house was a split level when I was a kid and it was always nice and cool down in the basement during the summer time. We did not have air conditioning back then and it was where we would go in the really hot part of the day. If you think about it you could live in a cave with no heat or air conditioning, because if it is under the ground far enough the temperature will stay steady at around fifty six degrees. That depends upon you latitude for depth though.
When moving into a home one of the things most people do immediately is set up their internet service provider. Living without internet in toady’s day and age is very difficult, so it’s important to have everything up and running the first day you are in the home. You don’t want to just go with any internet company in the area though, especially if you have a choice. It’s important to try to get cheap internet service whenever possible. You will see that in the long run it will really pay off, as Internet is one of those things which is very difficult to live without.
When looking for cheap Internet service you might want to try contacting your local cable company. They often provide internet services in residential areas, and they can be fairly cheap too. If you want to try to make your bill as low as possible, try subscribing to a basic internet package. (more…)
It was a long search, but I finally got a new job that fits with my plans, or at least something that is going to be close enough. I am going to be working for a tech firm not too far from San Jose in some little town near the delta of the Sacremento River. I never heard of the place before, but I got a little apartment and i used this site to figure out where to get DSL from a fiber internet provider , http://www.internetproviders.us/dsl-internet-providers/. Of course I am not going to bother getting cable or satellite just yet. I do not really watch a whole lot of TV in recent times. (more…)
I am a single father of twin boys and I am always looking for a great way to save money. Just recently I started to cut their hair at home and it is saving me a ton. I am thinking about buying one of the top hair clippers on the market so I can start doing this for all of the neighborhood boys. I know that it will cost me a pretty penny to get some great quality clippers, but I also know that if I am really good at this I can make a ton of extra money. The boys are heading into their teenage years and my grocery bills reflect this. Cutting hair on the side will provide me with a way to soften the blow that will have on my monthly budget. (more…)
I was lucky to get out of the LA alive as it turned out. I was on my way to the airport (LAX) when my cab got run off the road by some jerk in a big delivery truck. Of course it was amazing, but there was a personal injury lawyer handing me his business card almost the moment when I got out of that cab. I laughed at him as he was telling me that there might be something wrong with me and suggesting that I might have a neck injury. It was pretty funny. The only thing wrong with me was that I had spilled my Dr Pepper on my gray suit and I was wondering if it was going to come out in the dry cleaner. (more…)
I’ve had a really slow drain for a few months now. I tried all of the over-the-counter products that are supposed to fix even the toughest clogs, but nothing seemed to work. I knew that it was time to call a professional, so I started searching for companies online. It turns out that there is a true need for drain cleaning in westchester county, and that I wasn’t the only one performing this type of search. I found one company in particular that really caught my attention. They mentioned their ability to do drain video inspections in some cases. I thought this was really cool, because I never heard of it before. They can basically put the camera down your pipes so that they are able to see exactly what the problem is rather than guessing.
Their great technology is one reason why I decided to use them, but their customer service was truly the main reason. I looked online, and they have really great reviews. They have a great record for being on time and showing up during the window that they pledge. That’s really important to me, because I don’t get very much time off from work. If someone told me that they’re going to arrive at a certain time, it really important that they do so.
The technician arrived at my house and was quickly able to identify the problem. I just needed a simple cleaning using a specialized snake. Because the clog was so simple, there was no need to use the special camera. I was a little disappointed that I didn’t get to see their latest technology, but it’s probably a good thing. If they had to use the camera, it would mean that there was a much worse problem at hand. I am happy that my drain now flows freely. I will definitely add them to my contact list.
I am pretty bad need of a plumber and I am hoping to find one in the near future, because my shower is backing up every time I turn it on. I am not sure what the problem is, but despite my best efforts to clear the clog, I can’t get the shower to drain. It has gotten progressively worse over the past few weeks, to the point where it is basically not draining at all. I am looking into finding a great plumber in morris county nj so that I will be able to have my shower back in the near future.
I have not been able to use the shower at all for two days now, and that is really inconvenient, as it is the only shower in the house. (more…)
If you want a lot of channels than you need to either get cable or satellite tv, but if you just want local tv than there is a new option available to you. Basically cable and satellite both offer you the local channels but then on top of that they give you tons and tons of big named television stations to pick from, but sometimes we don’t want all of those channels and just want a smaller more discrete option, we used to think that it didn’t really work that well or that it just was not worth it but the rabbit ears of the past are coming back, only this time they are coming in the form of a digital converter box.
They are these awesome little boxes that are now being sold out there to be basically the old rabbit ears. You can still plug the rabbit ears into them to make the signal stronger and to make them work just a little bit better. (more…)

When I was in college, my best friend found out that he got herpes. He was really scared because he had heard about it before, but he didn't know much beyond that. He called me one night and I could tell that something was wrong. I asked what was going on, and he asked me if I knew how to get rid of herpes. I had never contracted the virus before, but I learned enough in health education classes to be able to answer his questions. I told him that you can't really get rid of herpes. Once you have it, it's with you for life. Herpes is not always visible and active; sometimes it's in a dormant state. However, it will come back at one time or another.
He was upset, and rightfully so. Herpes is a serious condition. It's not necessarily life threatening, but it does require you to make a lifestyle change if you want to stay healthy and keep those around you healthy. I gave him the address to this website that I thought would be really helpful for him to visit. Sometimes you just have to see things yourself in order to understand. We continued our conversation, and I told him that I knew there were treatment options available. Doctors are advanced enough to be able to give you medication to help out whenever the virus shows up again. I reassured him that he wasn't going to die or anything like that, which was his initial concern.
Another concern of mine was that he fully understood that this virus was contagious. I wanted to make sure that he understood that he could pass it along to other people if he wasn't careful. Again, I referred him to his doctor for information and medication, because there are things available that will help him.Click Here
My food processor just recently stopped working, and I think what happened, is that its motor has burned out. It served me well for the last few years, but I will need to get a new food processor pretty soon, as it is a device that I use quite often, and I would be very annoyed if I had to cook without one. As such, I would like to start reading some food processor reviews on the Internet. I think that will help me to get a good idea as to what a good model of food processor would be to purchase as a replacement for my old one.
I want to get something that will work well, and generally, just be a high quality product. I am hoping to find a food processor that has a reputation for lasting a long time as well, so that I will not have to replace it in a few years. Click Here
