The Condo is Going to Need a New Roof

April 20th, 2015 Nicholas J. Garrett

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. It is like that expression a money pit, a hole where you put all your money and the only thing that happens is that the hole gets deeper and swallows up more and more money. It is not going to take you any place if you do not go in to the thing looking at it with two clear eyes.

It is going to be a long time before we know what this is going to cost at the final analysis. It is not like getting a quote is is going to be the end of it. In fact you have to find a guy who gives you a quote and then sticks to that one, if you are not very careful you get a guy with a totally different game. I know this guy who did this sort of thing and he ended up getting the wrong guy to do the job. He just keep coming back to him telling him that there was some problem which was causing them to be delayed. It turned out that the guy was spending a lot of time getting drunk and very little time working.

Doing the Math on This New Project

April 20th, 2015 Nicholas J. Garrett

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.

I think that old movie stars Tom Hanks and the girl who was in Cheers, it is called the Money Pit and it is about this sort of thing. You buy a house and you think it needs a little fixing up. You think that you can handle it and it is not that big of a deal. It might not be, but some times there is just one problem after the other. Of course the problem which a lot of guys hit is that they just get the wrong guy to help them. They hire a guy to do a job and pay him for it, but then time goes by and they realize that they are buying a bill of goods. In South Carolina I knew about these Irish Gypsies who specialized in scams of this sort. They went around claiming they could do jobs and getting people to pay them for work they did not do.

Searching for Those Elusive Local Results

February 28th, 2015 Nicholas J. Garrett

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. All of this is available and easy to use and when you find the results you are looking for you can easily click that result and go right to the channel or set it up to change to that channel when the show comes on. It's not like the old days of hoping you remember to change the channel at the right time.

These search results can be updated hourly making it easier for you to find local results meaningful to you. This means that no matter where you live in the country you are likely seeing different results and when you think about all the data that has to be kept up with and downloaded to each receiver daily you can imagine that it's a huge task. You don't have to think about that, just click search and find what you like and you are done but the processing power behind that quick and easy action is immense to bring you the best in programming.

Started Looking for My Own Place

November 16th, 2014 Nicholas J. Garrett

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. It is not anything special and it looks a bit of a mess, but for what I am paying you can not get anything that you would feel safe staying in.

The thing is that I have been living here for over a year and a half and I have been saving the money that I did not spend on rent. At first it was not that much, but then I got a good job working in an insurance company and that has worked out really well. So now I am thinking that I can buy a place of my own. Obviously it is going to be a small place and I will probably have to do without a lot of the extras. That is just the way that it shall have to be in the short term.

175.jpg PsammetichusAround 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. Fact is that cable TV gets its signal from satellite too. Go by your cable TV provider's broadcast center and you will see the big dishes set up. If the weather is so bad that your satellite TV is going to go out, it is likely your cable will too. Cable companies fail to mention how they get the signals they send to your house in the TV ads.

The menu and on-screen guide and DVR options are, for the most part, better on satellite service. Cable is just now getting into having DVRs that can record more than two things at once. Satellite TV service has been letting you do that for some time. No need to let a show go unrecorded with satellite TV with systems that let you record or watch up to five things at once. Like he said, it depends on what you want out of your television service. Do the research to see what is really being offered and make your decision based on facts.

Selfie Stick That Has Remote

October 20th, 2014 Nicholas J. Garrett

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. I am sure that Kevin Durant, or that kid for the Wolfpack that has the longest wingspan of any NCAA prospect in history, would have a much easier time of taking a quality selfie in the manner I am describing. But, in my case, I need some sort of device to artificially increase the distance of my selfie taking.

So naturally, it seems that trying to use some sort of stick that mounts the phone on it, and then has a remote control to take the picture, would be ideal. I also wish you could just use voice commands to take the picture. That would probably be the best solution, but I guess that is not going to be around for awhile. At least, it doesn't seem like it is going to be around for awhile. Maybe a few versions of software down the road. I don't know, but anyway, time to look for prices on the type of the device that I want to help me to take these pictures.

Cheap Plumbing Services for a Toilet

March 13th, 2015 Nicholas J. Garrett

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. That seems like a bad idea from the surface, and it turned out to be a really bad idea.

I am going to have to figure out what to do with this foam stuff later. I want to use the rest of the bottle, since it was not cheap. But I think I already sealed all of the cracks that I was worried about. Now I need to get my toilet fixed, because later, I accidentally flushed that piece of foam down the toilet without thinking about it. I immediately realized what a mistake I had made, but it was too late to do anything about it. And yeah, it is really clogged.

The Largest Financial Issue in America

February 20th, 2015 Nicholas J. Garrett

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.

Does Any of This Weight Loss Stuff Work?

January 24th, 2015 Nicholas J. Garrett

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.

Verify whether your acupuncture practitioner accepts your insurance and if your policy covers such treatments. If your insurance does cover this service, you won't need to worry about the mounting costs of treatments. Being more relaxed and having one less thing to worry about can help make your treatments more effective.Traditional Chinese medicine is a very interesting topic and you should learn more about different traditional home remedies. However, do not let an acupuncturist convince you to set up an appointment by referring to traditional Chinese medicine. Acupuncture is a science and you need to find someone who will use their medical degree to convince you they are a good acupuncturist.Know what you're getting into. Acupuncture involves dealing with tiny needles. There is no way to get around that, so come to terms with it before you arrive for your first Continue On Reading Through
