Jack and I got busy today on the house, although we could not really do some of the stuff that we had planned. The guy from TXU energy was supposed to turn the power back on early that morning, but they had a really bad storm up to the North and it threw that plan completely off the rails. We figured as much and tried to get to work on the things we did not need power tools for, or at least the ones where we did not have to corded power tools. In fact this house has been sitting vacant for quite a bit of time and it was hit by some fairly significant storm damage itself. I love the location, although it is going to be a bit of a pain if I working on the wrong side of the city.
This place is out towards the Gulf coast about ten or fifteen miles South of Galveston Bay. Read the rest of this entry »
Cable TV Providers are doing everything that they can to ruin the Internet thanks to the small fact that they are more than not often Internet Service Providers as well. To me, this is a clear conflict of interest that somehow doesn’t come into the equation whenever the FCC considers the idea of mergers, especially like the one that is on the table right now between Comcast and Time Warner. And yet, there is an issue here that should be addressed. As a business model, they cannot function like this for much longer as they are no longer improving their technology.
They haven’t updated anything in years except for the introduction to DVR. Read the rest of this entry »
Started to move Dad out of his place. It is looking we eventually have to start to think about finding him senior home care in Long Island, some nurse or something similar who can come to the house and help us take care of him. For now we think that we are going to be okay. He still gets around pretty fair, the probably is that he has gotten where he is very forgetful. So we are sort of reluctant to leave him on his own for any length of time. We are afraid that he might be developing Alzheimer’s disease or some other form of dementia. Read the rest of this entry »
Moving day and no help. I have helped a half dozen friends or more move over the years. I have taken days off from work to be there on moving day for friends. When my wife and I were moving us and the kids, no one was available that day. Not one person I know would step up and take a day off to help. I think more than just us have been in that situation. It’s not like I could just pick another day. Since no one was helping, I looked for budget truck rental discount codes to get a big truck to move our stuff.
I wanted to rent a truck big enough to get it done in one trip. We boxed up everything we could. We have already taken several carloads of stuff over to the new house. The big day was loading up every big and little thing left at the old place. I did not want to have to make several trips, nor did I want to have to unload stuff when we got to the new place about an hour away. Read the rest of this entry »
When I got ill and missed a few months of work, I learned the value of having a budget. I did get disability pay while I was gone from work, but it was not equivalent to my pay. Thankfully, I had enough savings to get me through, but that taught me a valuable lesson. First, nothing is guaranteed, and second, be prepared for anything and everything. I redid my budget because of that, because I wanted to maximize my own savings. One of the ways that I did this was by researching the various energy providers in Texas. Read the rest of this entry »
I have moved to a suburb of Chicago, because I have always wanted to live in this part of the country. Chicago is a city that I fell in love with at a young age, when visiting it with my parents. It is a great city, and one that I am glad to live in. I have not completed the move yet, but I do have a job in the area. I am trying to buy a house and I need to look into getting home insurance in Illinois before I will actually be able to get the loan from the bank that I need to pay for the house.
I did not realize that you actually had to buy the home insurance policy first, before you bought the house. Kind of seems backwards, but I guess there is some sense behind it. I would have thought that they would just stipulate that you have to get the insurance policy within a certain amount of time after buying the house. I guess that is not how it works, or at least, it is not how it works with the bank that I am trying to get a home loan from.
I am curious to learn a bit more about home insurance, and I want to look into the different rates that companies are offering for home insurance in Illinois. It would be nice to get a pretty cheap rate on it, because I already have a lot of bills. I am not going to have a lot of money in the coming months, so it would be nice to keep my expenses down as much as I can do so. I thin that i have found the perfect house to live in though, and it is going to be awesome once the purchase is completed.
When I got the bill for our satellite Internet service last month I could not resist following a link that told me to click here for the best prices on high speed broadband Internet. I was a bit amazed at the amount of data the kids burned through in a month’s time. When you have Internet service through satellite providers, it can get expensive. It is nothing like the low prices you pay for DSL or cable Internet. I think it can end up costing you more than the fiber optic service offered by the phone company people.
I was glad to see bundled Internet service options for people on a budget. My kids could get all the data they wanted to burn through in a month, and my wife and I could get a bill we could live with. The satellite type of Internet can charge you more when you go over a certain data usage limit. Cable can too, but their limits are way higher. Read the rest of this entry »
I had a dream last night, and then the next day, something uncanny happened. I was dreaming about driving a car, and that the car started to accelerate without any input being applied to the gas pedal. The very next day, I was driving my car, and the drive light started flashing when the car was in park, and also in reverse. I want to get mypsychicadvice done by a psychic to try to learn more about this dream, and to see if it is trying to tell me something.
I really think that the universe is trying to send me a sign, and that I could get in a car accident, or something similar, if I do not take proper actions. Maybe I shouldn’t drive for awhile. That isn’t really feasible, because I am going to need to get to work. If I have this same dream again, or one similar, then I will be convinced that something is going on. But I do not want to wait to see if that will happen. Rather, I am going to take action, and try to get into contact with a psychic today.
The sooner the better, because my mind is really not at ease currently. I am hoping that I will be able to find a solution soon, and some answers. I am really concerned about the flashing light. That seems like it is definitely a sign, and a very strong one. I have always been afraid of getting into a car accident, maybe that is my fate. I wonder if you can do anything to change fate, or if the future can be altered. I have always considered such things, and I am not really sure how I feel about my chances of doing so. I guess I will have to give it a shot though.
I like to play a lot of abandonware games. Those are games that are no longer sold or supported by the manufacturer. They usually only run on older computers, and they are a hobby of mine. There are some games that you can still buy old versions of, but the ones I like have long been out of release. That is why I search around on http://isohuntpro.org. There usually is someone out there who has the really old games I read about and want to play.
In the stores I have found these tiny self-contained game consoles that are preprogrammed with different old games. They are the old arcade style ones that I used to play as a kid. The games I like are the old computer games that were based on a theme or were role playing games. Not the newest versions of some of the games that are still in production, but the old original releases. Some of these files are big files and take a long time to download on slower peer-to-peer networks. The http://isohuntpro.org website offers seven megabits per second download speeds.
I have spent the last three months or nearly three months, working for some electricians in brisbane. They offered me a permanent position and it would not be very terrible to take it perhaps, because it is not as though I would just be a common electrician. Instead I was working as an automation specialist. I needed some money to finish my education, in fact I was tapped out and had nothing to fall back on. I would have settled for just about any job, but I sort of lucked into this and convinced the contractor that I could do the job. What he needed was an electrical engineer who understood how to work with automation. He was looking to grab a rather juicy contract to build a production line for a Japanese manufacturer of small engines.
It is a proven fact that men do not produce the same amount of testosterone as they age. Every year, the amount produced in their bodies is smaller, and this can lead to quite a few changes. For me, I realized that I was not feeling as active as I was before, and my doctor determined that this was because of my low testosterone levels. When my lab results came back and I was given that news, I knew that I was going to get a supplement that would help me with that. I started taking adrenalast after doing an extensive amount of research on the different products available for someone like me.
