This is not like a bachelor party. It is a party for my boss lady’s five year old son. Of course she thinks that she does not pay enough attention to him and so the party is going to be a bit over the top in my opinion. She is having it out in the country at this little park and so she shall have a petting zoo and a magician. I hired them, the name of the place is emagical moment. Of course I thought that was quite lame, but they checked out. Of course I did want to hire a random magician to appear at this party and then find out there was some reason why I should not have. I found some people who would be able to tell me in person if he was any good or not. They even had a movie of the show. At least the movie was of a birthday party where he gave a show.

In fact I have no idea how to judge if a magician is any good or not, but I watched the kids in the video and they seemed to be entertained. That is what is going to matter. Adults like me do not come in to the equation when you plan a party for a five year old kid. You think about the fun stuff for the kids and you figure that the older people will either be entertained or not. They do not matter very much of course. It is about who your target market is in every event and the people who drive the kids to the party and take them home are not a part of the planning. At least no one is telling me to worry about how bored the old people are.

You would not believe what my boss asked of me the other day. Our business is a small one that doesn’t have a lot of money right now. They’re working right now on gathering a client base while spreading out into this local market. They’ve got a lot of challenges before them so I understand that they may want to take shortcuts but my boss actually asked me to illegally download this scan speeder photo scanning software! I was shocked that he would even consider something like that. A programmer spent a lot of time and energy in order to make that software, working as hard as my boss to make his company successful.

I told him straight up that it was something that I was not interested in doing. I was not going to allow him to do something like that, at least not while I was working there. We’re all programmers here so I was surprised he didn’t just ask one of us to make something similar, it’s not like that it would be an overly difficult piece of software to make. So what did he do? He fired me! Part of me wants to fight it but I don’t think it’s really worth it in the long run.

He’s going to do what he wants to do, you know? I might be able to bring attention to his potential illegal activities to the appropriate people but in the long run it’s not going to do very much. One piece of software being illegally download is not going to make much of a difference in the long run. He might get a lawsuit or something but the creators of that software would not be able to get very much out of him beyond the cost of the software itself.

For those of us who were finding success via YouTube thanks to the popularity of the “Let’s Play” genre of videos, a genre which was backed many in the Game Design and Publishing industry, the introduction to the automated bot program which removed or out right shut down profiles was a huge hit. For someone like me who was bringing in a five figure income every month, the loss of this revenue was a blow to my confidence as well as my finances. It forced me to buy twitch viewers as well as move my entire operation over to Twitch itself.

I will admit this; despite the trouble YouTube caused myself and my fellow Gamers, I have embraced Twitch with open arms. They have made it so very easy for us to transition over and their platform has done nothing but improve in both quality, ease of use as well as popularity that these days I sometimes find it astonishing that I hadn’t considered moving over to their services long ago. I wish I had – I would be even more well established than I currently am and with the introduction of live streaming straight from a console, they are only going to grow more popular.

Twitch knows what fans of gaming and gamers themselves desire most: community and access to live content. I can spend hours a day watching live streams of gaming content, I love nothing more than to see other gamers doing what they do best. For myself, it’s like watching the equivalent of football or basketball and I know this sentiment is shared by millions of others around the world. Thanks to YouTube, Twitch has cultivated some of the best to which I can only be incredibly thankful for YouTube’s massive mistake in shutting down so many of our channels! Thanks, YouTube!

I went out to the lot today and waited on ambit energy in sherman TX to set up the electricity for the job site. Of course we have no house yet, instead I have a wreck of an old trailer home that I got in exchange for moving it. It is not fit for anyone to live in, but I am just going to use it as a place to store my tools and other stuff. The lot is about three and a quarter acres in all. I am thinking about how practical it will be to create a little fishing pond, it seems as though it is more than possible and I think that all I would need is one of those tiny dozer things they call bobcats. It is not a thing that I am going to be thinking about right off, but it is in the plans if the money is there and Ann does not object too much. The place is perfect for us really, because it is very close to church and very close to her kin folk. Then there are places to hunt and fish all that I can want. I could play golf too I suppose, but that is not very likely.

The truth is that I am going to get this house done for almost nothing. It is not so much of a house in fact. We no longer have the need of a big house and who wants to take care of a big house if you are just going to be using half or a third of it. We have a guest room, but it is going to be both an office and a sewing room for the most part. We expect to be done before summer gets too far along.

pictures of wild park deer uk 18 pictures of wild park deer uk 20 So, you are a new homeowner here in Deer Park, Texas and do not really know what to do when it comes to homeowners insurance. Well, there are some basic things that you will have to look at. First, you will need to look at homeowners insurance companies, finding one that fits your need. Next you will have to worry about your rates, and not taking advantage of the many discounts available to you will cost you a ton of money in the long run.

Finding the right insurance company for you can be very challenging. You will have to sift through the hundreds of companies that offer home insurance just to find the right one, wasting a ton of time. Well, using review websites that rate these companies will cut down on the time considerably. You will want to look for one that has a good history of customer service and is prompt, so if you do have a claim you can rest easy that it will be handled in a quick and effective manner.

Now, there are a lot of things that factor into your homeowners insurance premium. This size of your home, the amenities that are in the home and even the location all are part of the equation. Having a lot of claims filed or a low credit score can hike up your rates or even result you in getting denied coverage. There are also many avenues you can go through to get a discount. This can range from simply bundling your car and home insurance plan with a single provider, all the way to no one in your home smoking cigarettes or using tobacco products. As you can see, there is much that goes into deciding how much you end up paying for homeowners insurance in Deer Park, Texas.

My mother is declining in health, and I know that she does not want to leave her house. She is not fit to live alone anymore though, and I want to do what I can, to enable her to stay in her house. That is why I am looking into senior home care in brooklyn ny. I know that this could end up being pretty expensive, but it really does not matter that much, because I love my mother, and I want to do all that I can, to ensure that she is going to be happy. I am not sure how much longer my mother will live. I do not think she has many years left; maybe I should try to be more optimistic. However, she is already rather old, and she is going to be turning 90 in a few months. That is quite a long life, so it probably is not fair for me to expect her to live that much longer. I am not sure that modern medicine is really making people live as long as I thought it would by now. I just have this horrible feeling about putting her in any sort of home for seniors, and I think that this is the only thing that I can do, that I will actually feel good about. All of my other options would make me feel terrible, and therefore, I am going to try to find a home care service that I will be comfortable with. My mother is going to need a lot of attention, as she is quite frail. She is also currently recovering from a surgery, and I was worried that she was not strong enough to make it through the surgery. I am glad that she did, and I hope that I will have more time to spend with her in the future.… Read More


Storms usually don’t bother me. We went through one a few weeks ago that scared all of us though. The thunder and lightning were horrible, plus it produced hail as well as flooding conditions. The lightning struck a tree in our backyard, and we thought it was going to come crashing through the house. The top part of the tree just missed the roof, and the storm seemed to be over as quickly as it started. When we went out to survey the damage, we knew that we needed a tree service in westchester ny. Though we do a lot of the work that comes up for any homeowner ourselves, this was a project that was just too much for us. The tree was huge, and there were cracked limbs that were pretty high up. We were not sure if the tree would be able to be saved, and I prayed that it would. We had never needed the services of a tree surgeon before, so I had to go online to find a company that would be able to come out. Our main concern was that there were still broken limbs and branches high up, and we were not sure if they would come crashing down on the house. I was able to find a tree service that was able to come out that same day. I was surprised because I knew we were not the only ones hit by storm damage. When I had explained about the limbs that we were worried about though, they told me a crew would be there that day. When they came, they were able to actually save the tree. They did have to cut off the top portion of it, but they told us that the tree would be healthier because of it.… Read More


ADT Security Review & ComparisonsCrime is everywhere. No matter how safe and secure that we might feel in our neighborhoods, the chance of crime is an ever present risk that can strike at any moment. The world is uncertain. People are losing their jobs, they are losing their unemployment benefits while the costs of living are constantly on the rise while our wages stay the same. This is breeding an environment where crime becomes a staple of society – so what do you do? Myself, I decided to contact a local home security company. No surprise, ADT was the best priced on the market as well with the highest level of technology available to their customers with a multitude of layers that both prevent crime from happening while hopefully catching those that are causing the crime. It’s not what I would consider expensive for this level of security – you are getting exactly what you pay for along with some tools that have changed the name of the security game.

I once thought that locking my door and leaving my light on would be enough to prevent someone from breaking into my home – until it actually happened. For years I had lived a life without feeling this violation. If you have ever had your home broken into, or even your car, then you know exactly what I talking about. There is a sense of vulnerability that follows this violation. It’s hard to sleep in your home. You grow paranoid at the slightest sound or shadow. That’s the main reason that I decided to get ADT – I had to put my mind at ease again or I was going to drive myself crazy and never again have another good nights sleep, I hope that you never have to go through what I was forced to.

We bought this place about two years ago and knew that it was not really big enough for my needs, so I decided that I would build something and call it a guest house. In reality it is going to be the place where I do my hobbies and where I watch sports with my buddies. I got a painter in bergen county nj to help me with the exterior of the house, but he does vinyl siding too and what I wanted was a very specific look that would have been a huge pain if it had been done in wood and then painted. This way it looks very close to the real thing and you can not tell that it is vinyl unless you have the expert eye.

Of course when it starts to get dirty I shall just get some RV cleaner and a pressure washer. It is goin to be very easy to take care. If you painted something like this, then you would have the devil to pay when it came time to re paint it all, as there is a ton of fine detail in this job. You would have to climb up on an extension ladder with a roll of painter’s tape and spend hours masking it off before you could start painting. Then you would be force to remove the painter’s tape and mask off the parts that you had just painted. You would be talking about a tremendously difficult and tedious process, the sort of thing that I do not have any real time for. Of course that painter would have been just as happy if I had wanted to pay him to do it. He loved the look of it and took some pictures after we got done with the job.

There are few home security teams that are better than the buffalo ny adt team, they are some of the best in home security and they do everything that they can to make you feel safe as can be inside of your own home. I mean as far as I can tell everyone out there wants to be safe in their home and would not be here if they did not want to be. I mean we choose our home, but we do not get to choose those that live around us and if there is any way to make a home safer, I do not know why anyone would ever consider going without it. I mean if a theif breaks into my home, I want the police notified whether I am there or not so the security system that goes onto the door or the window and makes an alarm trigger is a great idea. Remember that not all thiefs are career criminals, some are just misguided and an alarm is usually enough to scare them away from your home for good, even if you don’t have it alert the police, an alarm in general is a very good idea. You can even set it remotely these days, they have apps for smartphones and all sorts of other gadgets and things that you can add on to make your home even that much better. I did not personally opt in for it, but they said that I could be able to control my lights and water as well if I wanted to, but that was way too expensive for me, but those that can afford it should consider it so that you don’t forget to turn the lights off and the faucet and what not when you go on vacation or something.

I am one of those people that is always trying my best to help my friends. For some reason, they tend to ignore my advice until it is too late. My best friend is trying to hire a roofing contractor in manhattan ny. I told her that she needs to consider several factors before doing so. The first thing she needs to do is find someone that is licensed to do the work. Imagine having someone complete such a heavy project and they are hurt in the process. You will be responsible for this if they are not insured. Unlicensed contractors will not have insurance, which means that they are a liability. Another reason why hiring a roofing contractor is important concerns the safety of homeowners. It is extremely dangerous to go on top of a roof unless you are properly harnessed and skilled to take care of the problem. Yes, it may save you money if you try to do things yourself, but you are exposing yourself to lots of danger.

The last reason that I wanted to discuss was craftsmanship. In case you didn’t know, being a contractor is almost an art form. It takes a certain level of acuity and direction to complete a job without incident. Anyone that is not a professional will not possess these qualities at the same level as a skilled worker. Do you want to complete your roof then watch in horror as pieces of material come loose or have water filling your home every time that it rains. These are minor problems that can cause much bigger issues and they should be addressed by a roofing contractor right away. Again, you may keep some money in your pocket if you try to do this yourself, but you will most likely regret this decision in the end.

Reliant Energy Rates 77077 2-15-12I got to Houston this morning and spent a couple of hours looking around I figured that I would stop and have a look at the old Astrodome, which is probably not going to be here when I get back here next year. I guess that they sold the naming rights to reliant energy and it is called Reliant Park or the Reliant Astrodome. It is not as big as the newer Reliant Stadium where the Houston Texans play. Of course you do not want to get these people into a conversation about that football team right now. They fired their head coach about the time I hit town and everyone was pretty riled up about the way that they had lost twice to the Jacksonville jaguars, including the game that was on last night on Thursday Night Football.

I guess they looked pretty bad, but I was on the road at the time, pulling out of St Louis last night about the time that game kicked off I guess. I probably had no interest in it, assuming that there was not a better basketball game to watch. Obviously when you are a fan of the St Louis Rams you do not have a lot of sympathy for people in Texas who thought they had a lot better team than it turned out that they actually did. We probably thought we would be better than it turned out that we were. I think that they are the first team to get eliminated from the playoffs in the AFC though. If we were in that conference we would actually have a record where we could hope to make the playoffs. Of course we would still be terrible, but we would have a chance to go on playing in the postseason all the same.

On www.directsavingstv.com/, I found some great deals that made me switch from my cable company. I’ve been with the cable company for many years, and I thought I was getting good service, but the deals I found online were better by comparison. I went to the website after a friend told me that he had switched from cable. Like me, he had been with the cable company for a long time. It wasn’t until he saw an ad on television that he thought about switching.

My friend is the kind of person who will stay loyal to a company, no matter what happens. It was surprising to see that he switched from cable. I thought he would have kept using the service until the day he died, but he really felt that his time with cable had run its course, and I agree with him.

When I first went to the website, I didn’t expect to find any noteworthy deals, but as I started browsing, everything looked more appealing than what I was already paying for with cable. The service being offered had more channels, with even some international channels that I couldn’t get on cable. I love watching international channels, and I always wanted there to be more on cable, but every time I asked the cable company about it, they just told me that there weren’t any plans to add more international channels anytime soon. The service also had more sports channels, which was a positive for me, because that meant that I could watch every game in the entire football season without any interruptions.

After seeing the website, I took some time to think about what I saw and what my cable package was offering, and I made the decision to switch, and I don’t regret my choice.

I had the idea that this might not be entirely legal because the guys who hired me were paying me in cash. We started out cleaning up this old abandoned warehouse and fixing it up sort of like a club. It is out away from any people who could complain about the noise and the fact that the people who showed up were wearing rave costumes. Of course they were there to party and have a good time. My job was to stand around and look tough I guess. I am a big guy, around six foot and three inches tall and the last time I weighed my self I was around two hundred and twenty two pounds. I am in good shape too and most guys are going to think twice before they mess with me. I did not really know that was the job when I started to work for these guys.

I did not have to do anything like that at any rate, aside from telling some guys that they had the wrong stamp on their hands. They had these stamps of course and you got it put on your hand when you paid at the door. About five or six guys came up and tried to bluff their way past with this other stamp. If you had not looked at it, then you might have been fooled. However it was not even close to the one that they were using. At any rate I told them that they had to pay and they bickered with us for a bit, but then they left because they did not have any moment. I think that they had spent all of the money they had on other sorts of things if you know what I mean. After that it was pretty boring.

I started thinking about this project after I bought the house. There was a huge work shop out in the back. The previous owner was a contractor who had a big building where he kept his heavy machinery. When I bought it the thing had a big razor wire fence all around it. I looked at it with a friend of mine who is a plumber in Bergen County NJ. He and I started to thinking that you could pretty much build a little honky tonk in that building. It was a nice sized place, about twenty two feet wide and about thirty seven feet long. The roof is a good fifteen feet high and it used to have huge industrial shelves all around it. The guy took those down and moved them to his new location where he keeps the stuff he used to keep in the building. It is all about fifty miles away from here now. Apparently he did all of the work he had in this area and moved to some other part of the world to do the work they have for him there.

The big plan was to build a huge home theater room. It is really big, but for now it is not as nice as it could be. Some people spend huge fortunes on these things. I just bought the projector and the projection screen off an internet auction. It is a beautiful thing in the dark, but when the lights are on it looks like it needs a whole lot of work. The floors are bare concrete and there are stains on them where the oil leaked out of all of the stuff that used to be in there. In fact it sort of smells a bit of leaked oil right now.

You know what it’s like to have a deadline looming over your shoulder, the date on the calendar screaming at you from across the room as you grind away at your project desperately attempting to finish it as fast and as efficiently as you can. It’s a terrible feeling and one made worse when you share a tiny office with ten other people. Yeah, it’s not the greatest experience in the world but you make do with what you have in Singapore. Our boss wasn’t cool with renting out a unit from http://www.asiaservicedoffices.com.sg despite how cheap they are. The guy just wants us to suffer, I’m sure of it!

I’m only complaining because the deadlines for us have been absolutely crazy. The hours here are longer than I have ever worked before. No doubt this project is going to be one of the financial keystones they’ll use as leverage for with the investors to gain more funding and capital on the next project but it’s us who are having to grind out these insane days in order to make it happen. I better see a fat bonus come the end of this project or I’ll be looking for a new job as soon as I get back home.

We’re lucky that we’re just working here temporary. Don’t get me wrong, I love this place. Singapore has one of the best night lifes that I’ve found with welcoming, awesome people to get to know. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to do much of that – the project and all. If there is a next time, I’m really looking forward to more reasonable hours so I can get the chance to explore more of what this city has to offer a guy like me from Indiana. It’s been such an adventure in just a month!

Over the past five years, home improvement has become a staple of how I spend my time during Winter and Spring. It seems only fair; keeping myself busy has always been the best way to keep myself out of trouble! This year I decided to go with Pete’s Renovations for all my kitchen remodeling in bergen county nj needs. I haven’t been living in New Jersey very long but I have found Pete’s Renovations New Jersey to be one of the very best. I was recommended them after having several issues with another company whom I’ll allow to remain nameless; after several appointments where they showed up late, or not at all, along with the poor quality of the work I had finally given up. Now with Pete’s Renovations giving me the hand that I need in getting this work done on my home, I have seen an improvement in both quality of work and customer service. They really have gone all out for me, being patient with me as I go through every question that I can think of. Often enough, I bring them lists of new questions that I think of or new designs I have come up with. Each time, they’ve been more than happy to advise me on why they are either good or bad ideas and how I might be able to apply them more cheaply. It’s great working with a contractor who knows exactly what they are doing – finding a place like this back home was near impossible but thankfully, I didn’t own my own home then. Now, things have changed and I want my work to reflect how much I value it. Building something with your hands, improving it, enhancing it and making it yours is an almost intimate experience that will leave you satisfied.… Read More

My daughter knew that she did not want to go to college because she had a learning disability that makes it really hard for her to read so we thought that instead of her going to a regular high school that she should go to one of the state trade schools that would let her learn a trade and it would be really easy for her to get an apprenticeship after graduation with a plumber in essex county nj that was going to take her under their wing and help her learn how to work out on her own. I did not know how she was going to feel about this but I wanted her to know that she did have a choice, plus she was only thirteen and she was basically going to be making a decision about the rest of her life.

I was talking with her and she told me that she was ready to make this big decision and that she thought that she was better working with her hands instead of opening up a book to study. She could always try to go to a college even after the tech high school as she will have a high school diploma but she would also have that trade under her, and we knew as a family that was going to be the best thing. When she graduated from high school she found a great plumbing company to work with because she was a girl and they wanted to encourage the females to get into the trade and we could not have been any happier for her, she is going to be making a lot of money and maybe even have her own business one day, we know that this is one of the best deals out there.
