Creating a Pay Stub for Verification Purposes

When my wife and I finally decided to buy a new car, I was really excited. We went down to the dealership and test drove several vehicles. By the end of the experience, we had selected our favorite. We sat down with the finance manager, and filled out all the required forms. At the very end, he asked me for copies of my last three pay stubs. At first I thought that this could derail our entire vehicle purchase, but then my wife reminded me about, a website we had used the past. The problem is, my employer doesn’t give me pay stubs. I get paid by check once a week, but there isn’t a traditional paystub attached to it.

I remembered something very similar happening when we tried to buy our home. They wanted copies of our previous pay stubs, and I was having difficulty getting my employer to come up with something. Continue reading Creating a Pay Stub for Verification Purposes

Scrap Dealers Pay Different Prices

Most people don’t collect enough scrap metal to need to know the price of scrap metal. For someone like me though, it is how I make a decent amount of money every month. I go around the area neighborhoods the night before their trash is picked up the next morning, and I look to see if anyone has put out anything that contains scrap metal. You would be surprised at just how quickly it can accumulate. People don’t really think about taking a filing cabinet or a piece of lead up to a recycling plant or scrap metal yard because it really is not worth their while.

For someone like me though who collects it on a regular basis, I make enough to pay my mortgage and car payment every month along with some other extras. I was taking everything to the scrap yard that is closest to me, but I stopped doing that when I found a website online that a lot of the different scrap dealers all across the nation on it.

Keeping Myself Fresh and Clean

Ever since I was a little boy, I had weird allergies. My body was sensitive to a lot of things. I found out at an early age that I was allergic to chocolate. When I ate it, I would get sick and have weird bumps on my face. I used to love to eat chocolate candy bars, but I had to stop because of my allergies. I discovered that I was allergic to my favorite deodorant. I needed to find deodorant for sensative skin.

For years, I used my favorite deodorant to keep me fresh. When I would sweat or get hot, it kept me from sweating profusely and smelling foul. I did not want to smell bad around my peers, especially the females around me. Continue reading Keeping Myself Fresh and Clean

I Wanted Central Air Conditioning

My husband and I bought an older house right on the outskirts of Manhattan. To us, it was having the best of both worlds. It only takes us minutes to get to the city, but we are away from the hustle and bustle of it for the most part. The only bad thing about the house was that it did not have central air. I knew that we could just use window units, but I decided to look into professional air conditioner installation in Manhattan NY instead. I have had central air for the majority of my life, and I just did not want anything else. Continue reading I Wanted Central Air Conditioning

Cheap Quotes for Roof Replacement

I was in the process of trying to fix up my house a bit so that I can get more money for it when I sell it. My first husband mostly paid for the house, but agreed to sell it to me for cheap after we separated. I have never really liked the house, but it has been home for close to 20 years. Unfortunately, I have to seek out a contractor to do a roof replacement in Queens as during the process of trying to figure out things to fix up on the house, to increase its value and whatnot, I found out that the roof is seriously sagging in a couple areas, which is due to extensive water damage causing the wooden frame of the roof to rot in some places.

It was fairly disheartening to learn this news, but I guess that’s just how life goes sometimes. Continue reading Cheap Quotes for Roof Replacement

My Mom’s Dream Came True This Year

My mom’s sister used to live in California when we were growing up. We used to go out there to visit her as a family some times. We all loved it. But back then, mom was a single parent and really didn’t have the money to just pick up from one state across the country and move closer to her sister. She always said that she hoped to one day, though. When my aunt passed away, she left the house to mom. I told her that maybe moving to San Diego was something that needed to come true now. She had been thinking about selling the place, but I told her we should take a trip out there to check things out first instead. Mom agreed, even if the trip came about just to relive old times to some extent.

My sister decided to come along on the trip, too. All of us were looking forward to it because none of us had the time to get away together for many years. Continue reading My Mom’s Dream Came True This Year

First Resume for an Older Person

I am something of an odditity in my social circle. I have had the same job since I was in high school and I have never written a resume or went to a stressful job interview. Well, that is until this year. The used bookstore I had been managing couldn’t keep afloat anymore and had to close which meant for the first time in ten years I was on the hunt for a job. Having no idea what I was doing as far as resumes go, I decided to look into a resume writer service.

I met up with the writer and he asked me various questions about what I had been doing for work since high school, what kind of tasks and responsibilities I had been doing and what kinds of charitable endeavors I had undertaken. He drew up a beautiful resume that I was impressed with and it was mine. I could only hope that the people I would be giving the resume to would be equally impressed. I knew my chances of finding another bookstore were slim, given the advent of online shopping and e-books.

On the recommendation of the man who wrote out my beautiful resume, I handed it out to several recruiters and human resource professionals that I knew through friends. Thanks to his networking tips I was able to land several interviews and two job offers. Now I am working in a new field and loving every second of it. I wish I had tried out something new sooner. I could have had a more stable job and been doing something that I loved if I had just taken the time to get my resume written right after high school. I probably should have gone to college too, but at least I have a good job now.

I Had Too Many Empty Apartments

When you own an apartment complex that is only 85 percent filled, that is a lot of revenue that is being lost on a monthly basis. We have over 300 apartments total, but there are nearly 50 that are empty at any given time. I understand that our biggest problem is that there are just too many apartment complexes in the area. It is not that people are not liking what we offer, but that other complexes are offering similar amenities too. I went to to see what they could do to help me with my marketing, because I could not continue to take this kind of loss and not suffer the consequences. Continue reading I Had Too Many Empty Apartments

I Have a New Job and Will Be Moving into a Great Place

I really wanted to apply with a company in the next city over, but was not sure if I could swing getting a new place to live in after I had just done so in my city six months earlier. I have two pets, so I paid a big pet deposit, along with the usual apartment deposit. I had even paid for the last month’s rent. I was telling my mom about it, and she said she has a friend whose daughter is looking for a roomie, and lives some sort of apartments there by the name of The Oaks that are supposed to be very nice. She said she would put me in touch with her friends daughter if I was truly interested.

After talking with the girl who was looking for a roommate, I found myself feeling excited for the first time in many years. We talked over the phone, and she told me all about the place she lives. She told me the website to visit so that I could see what they look like and learn more about them. My mouth fell open when I saw the photos because the place is beautiful. It is much nicer than any place that I have ever lived in, and I would only need to pay for 50 percent of the rent each month. I knew that if I landed a position with the company that I wanted to work for, I could swing that sort of rent very easily.

I got my resume updated and ready to send out. Then, I waited and hoped. A representative called me 24 hours later for an interview. Just two weeks later, I was hired. It was then that I called the girl who would be my new roomie and told her that I got it, and was ready to sign the lease to live with her.

Storm Damage in New York

I have been in the rental property business for ten years, and it has been a successful business venture for myself and my family. The only real problem we have had since we started renting out houses is when we sustained major damage to two of our rentals during one of the worst storms we have ever seen. On one house, the roof had major damage, and the second house had property damage. My own crew was able to take care of the property damage, but I knew I needed a company that does roof repair in Brooklyn NY for the house with the roof issues. Continue reading Storm Damage in New York

I Make Time for My Friends Whenever Possible

Friends and I were sitting around my fire pit one night last month. I smiled to myself as I listened to the conversation. Some friends were jokingly asking our friend Elsy when she would marry, and making up friendly songs based on the lyrics of who will marry Elsy El-Chayeb as well. The night was friendly and fun as always. I looked around at the faces of everyone else and saw smiles as well. We were a good group, and we had all been through so much together. I realized how grateful I was for every single person there that night.

Many of the people who I am friends with have been with me since high school. I really didn’t know what to expect on the day that I started at my local high school. I do remember being a bit nervous about it all. But by the end of the school day, I had already made one friend. Continue reading I Make Time for My Friends Whenever Possible

Software That Really Helped the Project

The civil 3d intersection software I found on your website was so helpful to me and the project I was working on. I wouldn’t say being a civil engineer is a glamorous job but it is great one, well at least it is for me. I have been working for a major construction company now for ten years working as a civil engineer. We build both in the private sector and also in the public sector. I would say in the end I really enjoy building for the private sector more because you have a lot more freedom in your designs because you don’t have a lot of people you have to answer to. But lately there has been a lot of government contracts up for bids so our construction firm has done a lot bidding on them too. Government jobs can be good in one way because the government doesn’t have to look at saving money so much as a private company would.

One of the jobs that I was currently working on was a private one and I had been working with a few other engineers in our firm and we had most of the plans set, but there was a couple of things the customer wanted to add on at the very end and I wasn’t sure how to add them without costing extra for the customers. I went online and found your website and saw that you had lots of different types of software that could help us figure out this small problem in the planning of the building. I showed your website to my co-workers and they were on board with buying the programs. In the end it helped us a lot because we were able to finish the job with all of the specifications that our client wanted.

Great Music Led to a Great Relationship

When my cousin’s friend asked me where she could baixar mp3, I told her that I knew of a site that had really great music in both her language as well as English. She is Portuguese, but she has lived here in the United States for many years. While she has adapted really well, she still enjoys listening to the music that her parents and grandparents had played in the house she grew up in. I cannot really blame her, because I really like it and I am not even Portuguese. Continue reading Great Music Led to a Great Relationship

A Website That Will Save My Business

I thought it would be easy to create a website. Actually, it was very easy. However, it is not easy to create a great and effective website. It only took me a few hours to create one for my small business using templates that were easy to find. It looked so horrible though. I knew that if I was going to have an online presence, it would not be because of something I created. That is why I started looking at different companies that provide Detroit web design services.

I definitely wanted a local company to help me with my website because I am a huge supporter of local businesses. Continue reading A Website That Will Save My Business

A Video Tribute to Victims of Violence

I have a website that is quite popular. The reason it is doing so well is because I keep everything on it relevant to what is going on. Even though I am in just a small city, I cover everything going on around the world if it is major news. When there was a mass shooting in another country that left dozens dead and even more injured, I knew that I was going to do a tribute to them on my website. I contacted a Singapore video production company that has done videos for me in the past to see about getting a tribute video for my site.

The reason why I use this particular video production company is because they take my vision and turn it into something that is even better. Continue reading A Video Tribute to Victims of Violence

Research Where You Invest Your Money

I had a friend tell me to go to a meeting where people were going to give testimony about how great their investments were paying off. I am always a little bit weary of how I am going to invest my money if it is not in the traditional way, and I was afraid that it was going to be a wealthy affiliate scam. I have heard of people going out and putting money into an investment group that they heard was great and it paid great dividends for them. I was hoping that this meeting was going to work out well for him.

I like to invest my money in traditional means, like pick a money market to expand my portfolio. Traditionally, a money market is one of the safest ways to go and it actually puts your money into more than just one stock. Continue reading Research Where You Invest Your Money

Asbestos Extraction Done by Professionals

The construction practices of the old days have left a lot of areas filled with asbestos. People back then didn’t really do as much research into materials before they used them like they do today. Products these days are tested repeatedly before they ever get to the market, and if they aren’t safe for usage on humans, then they are sent back or shelved. I was unaware that in the attic of my home was asbestos. I called a special company to do asbestos disposal in Sydney, because if I tried to do it myself, I would have put my own life in danger.

Asbestos fibers are so small that they can easily be breathed in without anyone noticing. Working around it without any protection, even to remove it, can result in lung damage that can also cause cancer. I don’t know of anyone who has been affected by asbestos, but I’m sure there are many people out there who have, and they didn’t even know it was happening until it was too late. Continue reading Asbestos Extraction Done by Professionals

A Clean House Sells Faster

When my husband was transferred to New York City for work, we were not given very much time to make it happen. Neither of us wanted to spend even a week apart, so we had to get busy faster than we could have ever expected. It was easy enough to pack everything up and get a lot of it in a self storage building. My sister works for a real estate agent too, so it was easy to get them started on the house. I did a search for move out cleaning in Tampa because we had enough on our plates without having to worry about making our vacated home look as clean as possible. Continue reading A Clean House Sells Faster

Using Hair Weaves to Avoid Coloring My Hair

I am not a fan of hair dye. My mom had a really bad reaction to it when she started to turn gray. So bad that she has opted to just let her hair go gray. I wanted to add some streaks of color to my hair but was afraid of the hair dye. I was concerned that shared genetics might make me allergic as well. I also was not confident about just testing for reactions on a small spot. I opted for Brazilian hair bundles that were already dyed the color I wanted. I do not have any gray yet, and I’m hoping not to anytime soon.

The hair I had weaved in looks great. It has added color and volume to my existing hair. Continue reading Using Hair Weaves to Avoid Coloring My Hair

Cutting Coupons and Crazy Shopping

I started coupon hunting after my wife watched a show about it and wanted me to start. I never really cared about coupons before. Whenever a paper would come in the mail, I’d probably glance at the coupons once ever couple of months and still never clip any of them. Since I’ve become a hunter, I now look at every coupon I can find, whether it is printed or online. Just the other day I found an online coupon at the bedbathandbeyondcouponzone, and my wife told me to print it out. She had been wanting to buy some things at the store, but they were too high priced for her liking.

My wife also like to decorate at home, which is why she really needed that coupon that I printed. She will got the store and look at the aisles for hours, even though she won’t buy anything. Continue reading Cutting Coupons and Crazy Shopping

Catching the Criminals in the Act

Becoming a home owner opened my eyes to many facts that I had not considered before purchasing a home. Much to my surprise I found myself completely naive to a subject that nobody had ever thought to broach – crime. Crime is a fact of life, an element that we all live with to varying degrees. Growing up in the suburbs didn’t expose me to much crime and so when a friend of mine suggested I install ADT security cameras around my property to create an additional layer of security, I was shocked.
