The rains kept coming before spring even arrived. It was a really weird winter with too many freeze and thaw cycles. The heavy rains made the ground outside a mud pit anywhere you stepped. Our yard was like soup. The conditions caused a situation where we had to call a Nassau County tree service. I was outside going to my car in the driveway to go on my daily commute to work. I heard a noise and turned around. I watched as a huge oak tree in our yard slowly started to lean to the left toward our house. I ran into the house to get everyone away from the side the tree was on. We all ran outside in a panic away from the direction the tree was falling.
We watched the tree slowly keep leaning toward the house. The massive trunk started to touch the rain gutter at the end of the gabled roof. It was pressing in and bending the gutter. Then the tree stopped. If it would give way it would flatten the roof. Oak is an extremely dense and heavy wood. That tree weighed many tons. Oak logs feel like you are lifting lead. Our house was no match if that tree would fall. It made for an interesting removal for the professionals at the Nassau County tree service. I was so very happy that the house did not get damaged. Even the gutter did not have to be replaced. I popped back into place after the weight of the tree pressing on it was taken away.
I am so glad that the root system on the far side of the tree held in place. I do not even want to begin to think what would have happened if the tree had fallen quickly and hit the house. It would have crushed the roof and wall and ended up in the kitchen where everyone was at when I was leaving for work. Trees can be very beautiful, but they can be very dangerous too. We had them take down the other two large oaks as well. Now we have small Japanese maples and some fruit trees instead of those massive oaks close to our house.
In a surprising turn of events, the secretary for my company walked out on me last month. She got really scared about coming into work because of the virus that’s been spreading around, and wanted to avoid contracting it. It’s a shame that she left so fast, because I allowed all of the workers to work from home. I looked at some corporate secretarial services in Singapore, and found a secretary that would be able to fill her shoes. It was a good thing that the secretary was able to start working in such a short time frame, because there was a lot of work that needed to be done, and virus or no virus, the company had to keep going.
For the most part, our day to day operations have continued as they usually do, except everyone is using their web cams to work. I set up a room on a video chat program and gave everyone the information to log into it. I had to make the room with extra security because I didn’t want any stray person to wander into the room and get any private information from us. I also didn’t want anyone posting anything that might have been harmful or inappropriate. I’ve heard various stories about this happening in chat rooms.
Given how well the workers are interacting with the new secretary, and how well they’re working from home, I may be open to doing work from home days more often in the future after the virus has gone away. Everyone seems to like the idea of being able to work and relax in the comfort of their own home at the same time. To me, it does create a better setting that I feel gives me more energy to work. Not mention, I don’t have to wake up so early to get to the office.
I want to sell my old car in the near future, because it is not even running anymore and it is really just taking up space. Not to mention, if I keep it for much longer, then I am going to have to pay property tax on it again. Does not seem like something worthwhile to pay property tax on when I am not even using it. I want to find a place to sell my car in San Diego and I really want to get a reasonable amount of money for it.
I know that I said that it does not run anymore. That is true, but I don’t think that there is much wrong with it. With a little bit of work, I think it could be a pretty good vehicle and last another one hundred thousand miles or so. As long as you kept good care of it anyway. I have a new car, as I already mentioned, and so I do not have any reason to get it fixed up, because even if I did, I would not be using it anymore.
I guess it might be nice to have a second car for some reasons. But I think that if I were to have a second vehicle that I actually used, then it would have to be a truck. A truck would be pretty useful as it would allow me to haul stuff and buy different supplies in bulk quantities. For example, I want to get a whole lot of pine bark so that I can redo some of the natural areas that are in my yard. I would have to make a whole lot of trips back and forth to fit all of the pine bark I need in my car and so I am getting a friend to pick some up for me.
If anyone had told me I would be moving even a few months ago, I would have told them absolutely not. I was not considering that something could happen to the house I was living in though, forcing me into moving even when I did not want to. I was renting a house for nearly a dozen years, and it was home to me. However, a fire changed all that. Thankfully, everyone was away, and we had no pets, so there was no loss of life. That is how I found out about the Park at Boulder Creek apartments, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise to me.
I was really anxious about finding a new place, especially a house since rentals are usually a lot more than I can afford in this area. That is one of the reasons why I started looking at apartments. I had never lived in one before, but there was a certain appeal about it after I learned all of the perks of living in one. Continue reading The Fire Turned into a Blessing
I have been in Detroit for about six weeks now, and the likelihood is that I am going to be here for the foreseeable future, so I went ahead and found a pretty nice place to buy. It was a huge surprise to me that it was so inexpensive, although the reasons are clear one you do a little research. The same reasons inspired me to do more research into home security. That is an issue in the area where the house is, although it is not that big of a difference between there and a thousand other places in the country. For now I got a sign that says that I have a home security system, which I figured was better than nothing. Continue reading I Up in Detroit Now
I had a successful business in the US. I had multiple stores and was selling amazingly well both in store and online. I had noticed that a lot of my online sells were from customers in the UK. For about a year, I looked into ways of getting a physical store to them. I talked with many people and most of them said the best way was to look into the sole representative visa business plan.
A sole representative visa business plan is a plan that helps businesses and people overseas have a business in the UK. It is the most used visa due to the flexible perks that it has and due to the permissions that it includes. When I Iooked into it, I was initially not sure that this was the right route to go in. It honestly seemed too good to be true. Continue reading Taking Your Business to the UK Doesn’t Have to Be Stressful
My friends and I usually bet on sports games. We get together each Sunday to watch the football games, and normally we would bet with money, but we’ve switched to making bitcoin bets. We’ve all been trading on Bitcoin Trader and have done well. Whenever one of us wins a bet, we transfer bitcoin from the loser’s wallet to the winner’s wallet. Our local sports teams have been doing poorly for the last few years, and everyone always thinks that they’re going to lose. The last game the football team had, my friends and I all bet on it, except I bet that the team would win the game.
All of my friends thought I was crazy for betting that the team would win. I have to admit that the odds were not in my favor. There was no indication that the football team would start playing well enough to win at least one game, but I had a feeling in my gut that they would pull of a victory. As the game began, the opposing team scored a touchdown in the first 2 minutes, making me already regret my decision. Continue reading Big Bets for Bitcoin Trades
I never knew that it would be possible to be one of those people who had people paying them for their idea. I heard someone tell me that they made an app for people to be able to control their dog and eating times and I thought that was silly but then they told me how much money they made. I could not believe that they could actually quit their full time job so that they could go and passively make money. I had to find a company that did mobile application development in Singapore since that is the place where I live. Continue reading You Can Make Money As Well
I drive different trucks pretty much every day. The seats vary greatly in how comfortable they are. And when you are sitting for hours at a time, it can get really uncomfortable. Plus, I drive in an environment where it gets cold in the winter. The heaters in the trucks work good for the most part. However, I looked for the best truck seat cushions that had heat built in. Instead of just raising the air temperature in the cab to very warm, I like the feel of the heat soaking into my back. My oh my that feels good on my old back as I drive when it is cold outside.
In the summer I like air circulation. Continue reading Getting a Better Seat Cushion for My Truck
Finding https://www.kleepers.com online when I looked for an effective cleaning service sure ended up working out well for my family. I’m an extremely busy person and usually didn’t have the time to spend hours picking up around our home. When my husband recently underwent emergency surgery on his heart, it meant I would have even less time to make sure things looked tidy. His surgery meant someone had to take care of him around the clock and I wasn’t going to have the time for mundane cleaning chores what with my online business and taking care of him. I needed a cleaning service.
I went online and chose Kleepers because they looked like a serious business. They had descriptions of what they do exactly and even broke down the job for each room in the home. I really appreciated that because it allowed me to figure out exactly what I wanted done and how long I could expect the job to take. I was able to book an appointment online and provide all the information they would need to get the job done. They showed up right on time and got straight to work. My husband and I watched them work.
We both marveled at how quickly they got everything done. My husband said it was like watching a cleaning tornado move through our home and I had to agree! Very dedicated and serious about their jobs. They did everything exactly as I specified and by the time they left our home positively sparkled. My husband and I both decided we would have them return on a weekly basis to clean things up so we would no longer have to worry about picking up around the house. I couldn’t be happier with their service and I’ve already recommended them to a few friends.
Our daughter has been coming home and telling us at dinner how hard school is getting for her. She stays up late and gets up early to study and do all the other things she has as responsibilities. I think kids have too much put on them at a young age, but there is an extreme amount of social pressure to perform exceptionally on an academic level. In order to ease some of her study burden, we looked into jc physics tuition to help get her to where she needs to be to excel in her studies.
You cannot just leave it to chance. Sure, you have your textbooks and lecture notes, but your exams really need you to have a good grasp of the subject matter. When I was in school, an average grade was not great, but it was acceptable. Now the kids are not happy with above average. They want to be at 100 percent or as close to it as possible. Continue reading School Was Different in My Day
My friends and I are usually too busy during the week to talk and hang out with each other. Between having to work and spend time with our kids, life just doesn’t leave a lot of time for friends. It’s a good thing that we can get together on the weekends and talk. We like to get a manicure and pedicure from a local spa. It’s the perfect place for us to relax and gossip about the things that have happened during the week. While this is happening, our husbands are watching the kids.
Last weekend, one member of our group was telling a really good story about this man that she met when she went to pick her son up from school. She’s a single parent because she divorced her husband years ago. This man had a deep voice and was quite tall. She literally bumped into the man by accident, and he apologized for it. At that point, our friend as enthralled with the man and started up a conversation with him. Continue reading Where the Girls Go to Gossip
I started off with just one employee when I began my business. That quickly grew into three, and now I have 13 people working for me. I recently realized that I am going to have to expand again. This time, I need more than just more employees though. I knew that I was going to need a bigger office, so I started looking rather quickly for that first. I wanted to have that in place before I hired more people. I found a great spot, and I knew that I could hire a company to do office refurb in Bath.
Just looking at the office on its own, it was rubbish. There were stains on the walls, the carpeting looked older than me, and it was so dark in there, even with the lights turned on. Continue reading A Complete Office Refurb That Looks Great
Moving practically around the world for a job can be very scary. Well at least it was for me. I love that my job allows me to travel, so I usually do short term rentals for my housing, but this time I was going to be moving and staying in the same location for five years. That is what my contract was for, so I decided on a house rental instead of a condo. I found a great rental but needed a cleaning service to get it ready. I did an internet search for pre moving in cleaning for Singapore.The house I found was a large two bedroom home close enough to the office that I would easily be able to spend long hours, if necessary, at the office. Also close enough to the office that if I need to go in on the weekends I don’t have to fight traffic. One of the worst things about some cities is the traffic and not having to deal with that was a blessing.
But I wanted to find a company to make sure my new home was clean and ready for all of my furniture that I was going to have shipped over. Living in the US you just think that property is going to be ready for you. I didn’t want to make a huge mistake.Thanks to your wonderful company I was able to have you clean the house perfectly. You even sent me pictures of the house, which I thought was so helpful. You pictures made excited to finish the move and get my personal belongings to the house.I have decided that once I get my things in my house I will contact you again to setup a weekly cleaning of the house, I feel I will be too busy to clean.
I am not exactly a chauffeur, but I am driving this rich lady around. She is not my boss, but apparently she is somehow more important than him. I picked her up from the airport last week and I quickly realized that she was there to snoop around. She asked me a bunch of questions and when we went to see the boss he looked as though he were about to sweat bullets. When they got done he did not look any better, but she seemed really happy with herself. We went to a manicure service in Singapore after the meeting, I had spent the entire time trying to figure out how to make the best choice. Continue reading I Am Working a Strange Job
I searched out a top water jacket because I needed a new jacket for when I go fishing in the fall. My old one, which I wore for many years and through many amazing catches including one record breaking one, was really starting to show some wear and tear and it wasn’t keeping me as warm as it used to do. Also, I noticed I’d come in from a catch and I’d be wet. That never happened before, but since it has worn so badly it is now letting in water. So obviously it was time to get a new one.
I spent an enormous amount of time searching out my options. Continue reading Best Fishing Jacket I’ve Ever Owned
I have been so pleased with the wildlife that comes through my yard in my new house. Having lived in a city full of concrete sidewalks and many cars on the road, I was not used to seeing wonderful, living things walk and hop through my yard in the new home. My happiness was short lived when bees took over after awhile, though. However, a fast call to ask for help to get bee removal for Chandler homes done in my yard put everything back into balance again. There is no way that I could handle something like that on my own! My yard is relaxing and peaceful once again.
The first animals I saw in my yard were rabbits. Continue reading I Am Not a Fan of Insects Taking over My Yard
I looked at the website of Overlook at Crosstown Walk just to pacify my mother. I did not think that I needed her help in finding an apartment, but that was not the case after all. The ones that I had been looking at all fell apart for one reason or another. I guess moms really do know best though because she told me that this complex has anything and everything I could possibly want. So, that is why I went to the website. I basically thought I would be able to look at it and then tell her that it was not what I wanted.
However, once I started looking at the website, I realized that she was right. This was everything that I wanted. Continue reading My Mom Helped Pick out My Apartment
Holiday decorations, extra clothes, furniture you don’t want to get rid of and those little odds and ends that have sentimental value that never get thrown out are great items to put in a storage unit. You know you can’t part with the stuff, so why let it clutter up the house? I’m the same way. I have stuff I have not used for years, but I have zero intention of getting rid of it. We got one of the storage units for Keswick for our stuff. Some of the stuff is actually collectibles that may, or may not, increase in value as time goes by. I still have sports stuff from my university days, and I just can’t get rid of it. My wife has her wedding gown in storage along with some old books her grandmother gave her. Things we don’t want taking up space in our house, but things we will never throw out. Continue reading Storage Units for Keswick Make Life Easier for Us
I am not the type of person to just run down to the store and buy a rug off the shelf. I don’t care if they are cheaper than designer rugs because I would rather have quality over a great price. I knew that the rug that I got for my living room would be with me for years, so the decision on which one to get deserved some careful research. It was not until I went to my cousin’s new home and saw the rug in her dining room that I knew I wanted to get mine from the same company.
She told me that she had it custom made because she was not able to find one that fit in with the personality of her dining room. That got an eye roll from her daughter, but I understood completely where she was coming from. I was having much the same issue with my own rug search, but I knew that it was coming to an end after that visit. I went home and logged onto the website that she told me about. Continue reading My Rug is a Conversation Piece
When my daughter told me that she wanted an Overwatch sweater for her birthday, I knew I was going to have to go online as the local stores don’t carry anything like that without special ordering. I would rather go online and order it myself at a great price rather than pay an inflated price for a special order. I was able to find the Overwatch sweater that she wanted on a really fun retail website, and I knew that she would be getting a lot more than just the sweater.
When I saw the swimsuit they have as well as the baseball jacket, I knew that she was going to get both of them too. Continue reading A Fun Website for Gamers
