Anne and I are looking at this condo, but it is not really in a shape which is going to make it easy to move in to right at the moment. In fact we have to think about how much it is going to cost us to have the roof replacement in NYC. It is going to take some math that tells us this makes sense before we can move in to the place, but the initial cost of the place is not that bad in fact. The problem is that you might start burning through a pile of money and never get to the end of the job. Read the rest of this entry »
It is like any other thing. It has to make sense in order for us to want to do this or not. It is a good location for our purposes and the guys love it because they will all be able to get in and out of there without a lot of trouble. It is not like now where we have a location which is quite congested and difficult to access during peak traffic hours. I have talked to this guy who does commercial roof installation in Bergen county NJ and I am waiting to hear what he says about that. It has to be done and if it is going to cost too much, then the math on this place just does not work for us. It is pretty much that simple really. If you do not do the home work to start off you can really regret it. Read the rest of this entry »
This is really stupid of me, but I am going to have to call a plumber to fix the toilet in my apartment. I am kind of embarrassed that I did this, and it is hard to admit. I am going to start looking for a plumbing repair in Bergen county NJ to hire first, and then maybe I will explain what happened in a bit. I am going to have to explain it to the plumber which is bad enough, but I guess I should just own up to it, instead of being worried about how stupid everyone is going to think I am after they hear what I have done to clog my toilet.
I was spraying some cracks in the apartment, to seal them, with this expanding foam stuff. It is going to be interesting to see how hard it is for the plumber to fix my problem. I was testing the stuff out, and I sprayed a bunch of it into the toilet. I was going to fish it out later, because obviously I did not want to flush a bunch of solid foam down the toilet.

There are so many television stations on television today it’s almost impossible to keep up with everything that is going on. Satellite television carries hundreds of channels and that is before you get to pay per view channels. Satellite television has gotten so good at what channels it offers and the shows that make up those channels that they have very complex algorithms to program for all the different areas of the country we live in, often making it a bit harder to know what is on exactly when depending where you live. Local results are sometimes a bit trickier to sus out.
With the modern search functions enabled in satellite television receivers all of that information and much more is right at your fingertips and updated daily straight to your receiver from the satellites themselves. You can search by program type, age rating of program, length of program and even by actor. Read the rest of this entry »
I am going to be out on my own soon, it is not really as though this arrangement is that bad, but it is not a permanent thing and it was never intended to be. There are five of us sharing a huge old house on the edge of the city and it works out great for saving money. For instance we have a great satellite TV package, it costs a fortune, but we only pay around twenty five dollars each for it. The same thing goes with the Internet and energy providers. The five of us use a lot of power, but when you divide it up five ways it is not that bad. The house belongs to Billy John, he lets the rest of us stay there for a couple hundred a month each. I suspect that covers what he owes on the place and a lot more. In fact I think that his grand dad gave him the house. Read the rest of this entry »
Around here we have a cable company like most people have available to them across the country. However, I do know some folks in rural areas that do not yet have any cable TV service. Anyway, since we have Allegiance Cable, we have a choice. My brother lives on Atlantic side of the country, and he has a different cable company. I was talking to him about his new satellite TV service he got when he decided to get rid of cable. He had some interesting points.
He has seen the advertisements for both satellite and cable TV. He said that some of them remind him of political ads. I agree. He said that it comes down to facts and what you want out of your television service. With his satellite TV service he has a lot of HD channels. He admits that he also has some channels he does not even watch. He says that there is a huge amount of PPV available on satellite. Some people want that, some don’t care one way or the other.
He pointed out how some of the cable ads try to use satellite signal possibly going out as a marketing point to stick with cable. My brother used to install satellite TV systems, and he was very good friends with a cable TV installer. Read the rest of this entry »
I have been posting a lot of selfies to the web lately, because it is all the rage, and I want to be with it, if you feel me. I have already posted quite a few, but I don’t know how many, in any definite terms. But I will say that I am looking forward to posting some more, but I think that if I buy a selfie stick with remote to use to take selfies from further away, that might be the best way to increase the quality of the photos I am taking.
I don’t like that when you take a selfie, you are limited to taking it as far away from your head as your arm can reach. I have kind of short arms, so that is not optimal. Read the rest of this entry »
Getting in control of your personal finances has to be one of the most important things that all Americans should do. Admittedly, I'm not the best with my own finances and I would like to place the blame on the education that I was raised with. None of the schools that I ever intended once touched on just how necessary personal finance, budgeting and other economic factors would be once I left for the real world. College taught me more but still wasn't enough. Check out this resource if you're looking for a budget calculator to help you get an idea on the sort of financing you should be doing.
I think it should be considered a crime to not have this sort of teaching available to children as they work their way through school. It's such a valuable and important part of an American life. We go through our entire lives dealing with the ramifications of the state and health of our financial situation so to not include it into our education is beyond irresponsible and baffling. With college expenses ever on the rise, too, it seems like something that is a no-brainer when classes are consider by educators.
Perhaps as more college students begin to default on their debts we'll see this change. It's going to grow into a huge problem that Americans are going to have to face the reality of the situation. Without a doubt the student debt issue is one of the largest looming financial issues that we are facing today and without a solution we're going to suffer from a serious education recession. That in itself should be a motivator for educators to design age appropriate financial courses that will help students better prepare for life outside of high school and for the real world.
I work next to this girl who has a slight weight problem, which she obsesses about like a lot of women. She is a few pounds over the weight she should be. I personally do not look at her and think that she is far, which I would if she really were. At any rate she is always on this diet and it gets me to thinking about the fact that I need to drop a few pounds, more than her in fact. She was showing me some garcinia cambogia review today and telling me that she had heard all sorts of good things about it. Of course I got to looking around and I see things which appear to have a commercial bias being said. You have to expect stuff like that on the internet, especially when you are talking about a topic where the money to be made is immense, which is the case with the weight loss industry.
If you went to just about any drug store you would probably find some part of the store where they sell this garcinia cambogia and all sorts of other things. Some of it is based in mango, which actually has a sound basis. Eating mangoes is not the secret to it, but if you switch to a high fiber diet that can work. of course the high fiber diet means that you give up a lot of the foods that make you fat. Stuff like burgers obviously, mostly because of the fat in them. Ground beef for instance always has a percentage of fat in it. You look at the package and it will tell you whether or not the fat content is high or low. No matter what you are going to get some fat and you need to cut that out.Continue On Reading Through
