New Flooring at My Parent’s House

I wanted to surprise my parents by putting in new flooring in their home. They had the same flooring there that had marks in it from my childhood. That was over 30 years ago, so I decided it was time to do something about it. A friend of mine had told me about a vinyl flooring in Singapore website that guided him when he put in new flooring. I figured if he could do it, then I should definitely be able to do it because he is not that much of a handyman around his house.

When I looked at the website, I saw how organized it was in the instructions. It laid out exactly what I would need to get the job done as well as clear instructions. I read the entire site, and I felt confident in my own ability to lay down new flooring at my parent’s house. I arranged to have them out of the house for a weekend, and then I went and purchased the vinyl flooring as well as the other materials that I would need to get this job done. I figured that it would go quicker with some help, so I called in a few favors to have my brother and two of our mutual friends there with us.

It did not take us long at all to do all the measuring and cutting that we needed to do on the vinyl flooring. It helped that one of our friends used to be a contractor’s helper and had done things like this before. I had only planned on doing a few rooms with the new flooring, but it went so fast that we ended up doing the entire house. When my parents came home and saw that each of their six rooms had new flooring, they were speechless!

Quick Service and Great Results

The best thing anyone can do when they have an HVAC system that doesn’t want to work is to call a company for HVAC repair for Brooklyn. I had to have this done recently because my own HVAC system was having a couple of problems. The heater wouldn’t put out any hot air, and the air conditioner wouldn’t put out any cold air. It was essentially working as a fan that only put out room temperature air, which is fine if you don’t want to have any specific temperature, but I needed to have my temperature settings met because of the changes that would be happening when the seasons shift.

I never like to go into summer or winter because they’re so extreme in the temperatures that they put out. Being too cold is no fun, because you have to put on many layers to prevent yourself from shivering, and being too hot is no fun either, because you essentially have to take off your clothes to keep from burning up. It’s a nightmare on two fronts, and I would rather if the temperatures would just stay in the realm of spring and fall, but I have no control over that, nor does anyone else. The best thing I can do is use the HVAC to take care of the temperature.

The company that I selected to have the repairs done to my HVAC system were pretty skilled. They did an examination of my system and were quickly able to figure out what was causing the problem with the heater and air conditioner. They used their tools and spare parts to make the fixes to the system, and it was working as if it had never stopped in less than an hour. I was honestly surprised that they were able to get it done so quickly.

I Found out Why So Many Trees Lining City Sidewalks Are Shaped Funny

We finally bought a house about five years ago. We are proud homeowners, but it takes a bit of getting used to after growing up in and living in apartments our whole lives. I had only cut grass on weekends at my grandfather’s house. I enjoyed it. I used his push mower, riding mower and the gas-powered weed trimmer since I was 12. Now I have my own law to take care of. My wife and I had it looking nice, but our trees got shabby looking. We called a tree service in Long Island to come out and prune them the right way.

I had never pruned a tree, so I would probably end up killing them all. I have trimmed an arborvitae using hedge trimmers. It is round with a flat top. I tried to bring that shape back and kept going around and around. Well, my first attempt made it a skinny arborvitae. I have gotten better each season with it and the hedges. However, I had no idea on how to trim a tree. My wife is great with the flowers and pampas grasses. She has the planting beds looking like ones at a mansion, but neither one of us knew anything about pruning trees.

The tree service in Long Island came out and had all of our trees done in no time. They took special care of the ones out front to keep them away from the wires on the telephone poles. They said if the company the utility company uses would have done it, they just cut indiscriminately. The tree service shaped the tree nicely while keeping it free of the wires. I had often wondered why so many trees on streets had odd shapes to them. Some have a big V-shape in the middle where the wires go through. It’s better to hire your own tree service.

Well Pleased with My Corporate Secretary Decision

I knew from the start of my business idea that I would need to look into corporate secretarial services in Singapore if my dream turned into a reality. I have always wanted to be my own boss, so I had researched everything I needed to do to make that dream come true. For the most part, it was doable just on my own. However, there were things that I could not do because I either did not have the knowledge or the power to do it. Bringing a corporate secretary on board was one of those things.

I did not know much about this at first, which is why I went online to do as much research as I could. This position is needed to be in business on your own, so I wanted to make sure that I brought the right person on board. I looked at quite a few individuals as well as companies that provide this type of service. There was one that I kept going back to because they just offered everything that is needed in one convenient package. It was not a one package fits all either. There were different levels of involvement in each of the different packages.

Since I wanted to succeed desperately, I chose the highest end package, which meant that the corporate secretary would be more heavily involved and for a longer time period too. Before signing off on this package, I did some more research on other startup companies that had utilized this corporate secretary service here in Singapore, and I was happy with the glowing reviews that I read. This was just too important of a decision to pass it off on just any company providing the services of a corporate secretary, and I am well pleased with how everything turned out.

I Just Got Back from Utah

Of course I went there for a wedding which I really did not want to go to, but it turned out to be a lot more entertaining than you could have imagined. If I were a screenwriter or a sit com writer, then I am sure that I could have taken all the characters there and turned it into farce of some sort or another. I sat down with this guy who was trying to make his ex wife jealous with a girl from an escort service in Utah county. Continue reading I Just Got Back from Utah

Frank Sinatra Sang for Us All Night Long

I wanted to make the annual dinner really special because we had broken all kinds of sales records and everyone was just in a really great mood over it. We always have a dinner where bonuses are handed out and promotions are announced, but they are never entertaining. I wanted to make this one special that way, so I did a search for corporate entertainment UK because I knew that I would not be able to do it on my own. I was able to find a company called Chosen Events, and they were a dream come true for me as far as entertainment is concerned.

There were so many different ways that they provide entertainment. I was looking for mostly a singing act, but they had much more than that. They offer dancers and singers, jugglers, comedians, circus entertainment, and much, much more. As for the singing, there were different types of that too, so I had to look into each one of them to see which one I wanted to get for the dinner. Continue reading Frank Sinatra Sang for Us All Night Long

Secret Work Time Game Fun

At work when I have a little free time, I like to sneak in a little video game play time. The My Cafe game is so addicting because I can play it in short bursts and put it back down before anyone realizes that I’m goofing off. Sometimes I get stuck while playing the game because I don’t have enough resources to continue. That’s when I used the My Cafe hack to get out of my slump and start progressing through the game again. Without the hack, I’d probably be starting at my screen for hours, trying to figure out a way to get more resources.

I first learned that I could use the hack on the game when I was playing a couple of weeks ago. Continue reading Secret Work Time Game Fun

Helping New Apartment Residents Find a Home

As a real estate agent, many clients ask me to help them find new homes. A lot of people don’t know that I also specialize in helping people find apartments for rent in College Park GA. I grew up in the area, so I have a lot of insight when it comes to connecting people with the best homes possible. I get especially busy when it’s time for school to resume session. A lot of parents call me for assistance in finding their kids a place to live during school year.

I find that I consistently recommend the same apartment community, simply because I’ve had so many satisfied clients who have lived there. Continue reading Helping New Apartment Residents Find a Home

The Day I Saw a Big Rat in Our Garage

I’m okay with mice and rats. I do not mind handling pet mice and even big white rats that some people have as pets. They are very smart creatures. I am also okay with wild mice and rats as long as they are outside or in the subways. I have seen a few big rats in the subways that would make a housecat nervous. However, I am not okay with mice or rats when they get into the house. A couple of lots over the old house that sat empty for about five years was demolished. Pest control in NYC needed to be called out to our house and the surrounding homes. Apparently the demolition of the old dilapidated house disturbed a colony of rats. When their home was gone, they needed to find a new place to stay. They were finding ways to get into everyone of the homes of surrounding properties. Continue reading The Day I Saw a Big Rat in Our Garage

A Two Bedroom Apartment So I Can Have a Library

I am single, and I have no relatives that ever come to see me. I rarely have friends over to my place, and I have not had an overnight guest in nearly six years. I imagine people would probably be very surprised to know that I have a two bedroom apartment since a one bedroom would clearly be enough for me. However, when I first started looking at Scottsdale apartments, I never even considered anything less than two bedrooms. The only reason why is because I feel too cramped in a smaller apartment.

As soon as I saw the Wrangler layout, I knew that it was the one for me. When I first walk into my apartment, the laundry room is immediately to the left. To the right is a state of the art kitchen that has anything and everything that I need in it. There is even an island where I eat when I do have a guest over for a meal. All other times, I just have my dinner in front of the television set or out on the balcony. Continue reading A Two Bedroom Apartment So I Can Have a Library

My Daughter Really Loves Swans

I took my daughter to the play Swan Lake, and since then, she’s been in love with swans. She thought they were really beautiful and would spend a lot of time at learning about them. One day she asked me if we could have a swan as a pet. I wasn’t even sure if it was legal for us to have one. I did a little research, and as it turned out, people living in our area could own swans as pets. My daughter begged me each day for a swan, and I told her that if she really wanted a swan, she would have to prove to me that she was responsible enough to take care of it.

Back when I was a kid, I asked for a pet, and my parents gave me a pet rock to take care of to prove to them that I was responsible. Times were simpler back then, so people had to get creative and use their imagination, but now, we can just use technology. I gave my daughter a virtual pet bird to take care of for an entire month. If by the end of the month, the virtual bird was in good condition, I promised her that I would let her have her own swan.

My daughter didn’t let that virtual pet out of her sight. Every time I saw her, she would always have it in her hands, talking to it as if it were a real pet. She would feed it virtual food and sleep with it while it was in sleep mode. At the end of the month, the virtual bird was as good as it was when I gave it to her, so I gave her the swan like I promised. There’s a pond in our backyard where the swan can swim around.

We Should Be Home in a Week

It has been a rather eventful trip, in fact I was offered a really attractive bribe while I was in Las Vegas. If the deal they were offering had not otherwise been terrible I would have been hard pressed to have turned it down. However I have to go home and explain the deals I make and get them approved, so it is not like I can say they found an incredibly gorgeous blonde from a Las Vegas escort service and that is why I took a crappy deal that they would have turned down back at the home office. I thought that I could take the bribe and do the deal just because no one else would approve it, but that would still count against me. Continue reading We Should Be Home in a Week

A Surprising Jump in Prices

Earlier in the week, I got a phone call from a friend of mine. He told me to check out the prices on the bitcoin trading app as soon as possible. I looked on the app and my jaw dropped to the ground. The prices had gone up by over $2000. I bought some bitcoin a couple of months before that, but didn’t do anything with it. I just let it sit while making some checks in the app to see how much it changed. The sharp rise in bitcoin prices meant that I had gained a major profit from what I invested.

I sold the bitcoin I had and put the money into my bank account. To celebrate the profit, my friend and I went to a fancy restaurant to have lunch. Continue reading A Surprising Jump in Prices

His Family Will Be Taken Care of

Never in my wildest dreams would I have ever thought that I would be investigating the top mesothelioma compensation settlements. Prior to my uncle getting diagnosed with mesothelioma, I really did not know what it was. I have an in-depth education on it now though. I told him to focus on the medical aspect of it, and that I would help him figure out how to get compensation for his wife and children since they were going to have to go through life without him. That is a harsh statement, but it is also the fact about this cancer because there is no cure, and a person does not usually live with it for very long. Continue reading His Family Will Be Taken Care of

I Finally Have the Home I’ve Always Wanted

I wanted to live in a nice home all my life. I grew up in the country, and I had to share my room with two brothers. When I went to university, I shared a dorm with three other young men. When I graduated, I shared an apartment with my best friend. All these places were okay, but I wanted my next home to be super nice. I make good money, and I knew that itw as time to get my own place. I finally settled on a Boulevard 88 condo after looking at so many different developments in the area.

I was not strict about location because I do not mind traveling for work. I did not want to be in my car for hours, but I did not mind if I had to drive an extra 10 or 20 minutes one way. The only thing that really mattered to me was living in a nice home. Continue reading I Finally Have the Home I’ve Always Wanted

Nothing but Praise for Our Roommate App

I have always had roommates, and one of the things that bugged me the most was when the others did not pay their share of the bills on time. It was usually not because they did not have the funds. That would have been easier to accept actually! It was just because they had been disorganized and forgot that the bill was due. When I got married, I was telling my husband about it. He is the one who said we should talk to an app developer to see if we could create a roommate app that would help them remember when to pay a certain bill.

I thought that was a great idea because I would have loved to have had an app like that when I had roommates other than my husband. We put everything down on paper first. We took all the bills that roommates often share, including the rent, utilities, food expenses and then the miscellaneous expenses. We wanted it to be set up where people could input how many ways the bills were supposed to be split. Continue reading Nothing but Praise for Our Roommate App

I Longed to Feel Safe Again, So We Got an Alarm

Fifteen years ago, there used to be employees who would come through our neighborhood from time-to-time to knock on doors, share ADT prices and let us know that ADT was offering discounts on alarm system installations. It was a good business plan. By the end of the first year, fifty percent of the homes on our street and on surrounding streets all had alarms installed from the same company. We went without an alarm for awhile after having one installed for years, but we decided to start using the same company again after a home invasion recently.

My husband and I have both said in the past that we have been really lucky in life for the reason that we had never gone through anything scary. Continue reading I Longed to Feel Safe Again, So We Got an Alarm

Early Intervention by Parents of Students Struggling in Class

While school can be challenging for students, there is always help when things get too difficult to figure out on your own. Sometimes parents overlook the wide availability of tutors for almost every subject that a young student could need to succeed in their academic endeavors. Math and science tutors are commonly needed for many students since they are subjects that many find difficult to understand. Parents needing physics tuition for their children, for instance, should start looking early so that their child doesn’t far fall behind their classmates. This remains one of the biggest challenges with tutoring, getting the necessary help early in the process. Parents should be proactive with finding additional help for their children.

Tutoring is a useful tool in the education system. Continue reading Early Intervention by Parents of Students Struggling in Class

Impulse Decisions Are Not Always the Best

Sometimes we all make decisions that we come to regret. It could be in relationships, financial matters, career choices, or a million other things. For me, it was getting a tattoo. I have no idea what came over me when I got one, because I had always disliked how tattoos look on people. When I was out with some friends, a few of them wanted to get a small one, and I ended up doing the same because they looked cute at the time. Thank goodness for the best aesthetic clinic in Singapore that I found later though, because they were able to remove it with little difficulty. Continue reading Impulse Decisions Are Not Always the Best

My Mom is a Happy Customer

When my mom was released from the hospital following an accident, she stayed with me for nearly two weeks. She needed someone who would be there for her since she was unable to walk well. After two weeks, she wanted to go home since she was getting around better, but I was concerned because I thought she was going to overdo it. It was ultimately her decision, but I was glad she listened to our concerns as well. She agreed that I could find her a part time helper for Singapore since she was not able to move around 100 percent just yet.

She knew that she was not giving up her independence, which is very important to her. She also realized that if she did not show wisdom in her recuperation, she could set herself back. Continue reading My Mom is a Happy Customer

He Sees Physics a Whole New Way Now

A physicist is basically someone who solves problems. They can work in so many different fields, because there are problems everywhere. Physics is what makes our world go around, and it is the foundation for all other sciences. That is why I was surprised when my son came home with a mediocre grade in the subject. To be honest, I was floored because he had never brought home that kind of grade before. Even before his explanation, I was already thinking of the research I was going to do on physics tuition before the day was over.

We talked about his grade first, and he told me that the problem was in the delivery of the material. My son is a hands on type of person, and this teacher didn’t really teach that way. Continue reading He Sees Physics a Whole New Way Now

My Growing Family Needed More Space

I wanted my family to have more space. My wife and I had three children and three small bedrooms in our condo. We only planned on having one child. Our first pregnancy was twins. Our second was our son who came along two years later. My wife and I had the Master Bedroom, the twins had the second largest bedroom, and our son the smallest room. To me, it looked more like a closet than a room. I found a brochure someone put on my desk at work advertising the New Futura in Singapore. I checked, and they had some four-bedroom condos that were not sold yet. I asked my wife if she wanted to take a drive to go see the condo in its final construction phase before occupation. She was more than enthusiastic to go look.

We both were in awe of the tow tower design of the condo project. It has such a unique look to it. We read that it is designed to look similar to a lantern illuminated at night. Continue reading My Growing Family Needed More Space

It Took Me Awhile to Learn Where My Talents Come in

I was pretty young when I began telling my parents that I wanted to be a famous rock star. I played guitar, and I thought that I could just walk into any music studio and they would snatch me up, put me on stage and pay me millions of dollars. It took me awhile to realize that becoming a star doesn’t work that way. It took me awhile to learn that working to get a music production diploma would help me to get pretty far in life, so that’s what I set out to do instead. I know that my parents are both relieved that I ended up doing something that made sense.

My older brother played the guitar often when we were growing up, and I soon became interested in playing it as well after getting old enough to show interest. Continue reading It Took Me Awhile to Learn Where My Talents Come in
