This Seems Silly to Me

I ended up on this site while I was chatting with a girl I know from my computer science class, but it really sort of confused me. We were on snapchat and I was trying to get her to go out on a date. This girl is really super cute and really funny, both of which she is completely aware of. At any rate she was talking about something called a snapchat birthday filter and I had no clue at all what she meant by this. At any rate I tried to look it up and found some web pages, which apparently were charging people thirty nine dollars for some sort of background thing. Continue reading

The Best Online Retailer I’ve Found

Finding a Miami dress boutique online was a godsend for me considering I live in Wisconsin and will likely never see the city of Miami in my lifetime. I live in Milwaukee and, if truth be told, I’ll likely never see any of the big fashion centers in my lifetime. I’ll never be able to saunter into a dress boutique in a big city and look at all the amazing dresses they have lined up on the racks. Thanks to the internet, however, I don’t have to worry about that. I can look at them and order them online.

The only problem I have with online fashion boutiques is that I can’t hold the clothing in my hands nor try it on to see how it looks. I have a pretty good grasp on my body size and shape, but sometimes you just need to try something on to see what it looks like. Recently, I needed a dress for an occasion and didn’t have time to muck around trying dresses on. I had one dress that I thought I would wear, but it had a tear in it and thus needed to be replaced.

Imagine my surprise when I went online and found the exact same dress at an online site I frequent regularly. It was funny because this was a dress I didn’t buy from them previously. So I looked around and made sure they had my size and went ahead and ordered it. I can only sing their praises as they got the dress to my door in what felt like record time. Moreover, the dress was in perfect condition and fit my curvy body like a glove. I got a lot of compliments because of that dress, and I have to say I’m probably going to order from these guys many times in the future!

A Better Way to Do 3D Modeling

Engineering became easier for me when I started using the csi sap2000 program. Saying engineering became easier is a bit of a joke phrase because engineering is one of the most challenging professions in the world today. I have been in the business for about ten years and I must say that every project I have been involved in presents its own challenges. I breezed through engineering school without much difficulty, but every project in the work world has been unique and challenging. It’s part of what make being an engineer such a rewarding career. You’ve got to be smart in this profession.

Of course, smarts will only take you so far. You also need the best tools at your disposal. Continue reading

Life is Perfect Here in Colorado

I knew it would not take me long to find the home I wanted for my family because of the realtor that was working with me. She has such a good reputation in the industry, and we are not really that hard to please. There were a few things I wanted to make sure of, and that was having a certain number of bedrooms and baths in the house we chose. I wanted at least five bedrooms with a minimum of six baths. The realtor who sells luxury real estate in Cherry Hills Co told me that shouldn’t be a problem finding since so many people want a lot of bathrooms in their homes now.

I have three children, and I wanted them to each have their own bedroom and bath. Continue reading

The Meters Look Bigger in Person

I know someone who is into adventure and extreme sports, and it seems like every week he’s always looking for new ways to push himself and do something extraordinary. One week he wanted to go diving with the sharks, and the next week he wanted to jump out of an airplane without a parachute and land in a pile of boxes, because he had saw someone else do it and survive. Often he invites me to do crazy things with him, but I decline. One day he asked me how tall is Everest, because he wanted to climb the mountain, and wanted me to do it with him.

At first, I declined my friend’s offer to climb with him, but later I reconsidered. Everest is the tallest mountain in the world, standing over 8,000 meters. Many people have climbed the mountain, but not all of them reach the top. To be able to touch the top of Everest would be a monumental achievement, even for someone who has no interest in extreme sports or adventure. I agreed to go with my friend, under the condition that he gets a guide to come with us so we don’t get lost and freeze to death on the mountain.

On the day my friend and I climbed the mountain, we were shaking in our boots, and it wasn’t because of the cold weather. We were scared that we weren’t going to make it. I had never seen my friend this scared. For someone who likes to do crazy things and put his life at risk, he sure wasn’t feeling risky that day. We slowly made our way up the mountain, taking breaks to catch our breath, eat, and rest. There were times when I thought we wouldn’t make it, but we soldiered on and made it to the top.

It Makes a Lot of Sense to Keep Things Very Simple

I was once invited to a black tie wedding. After spending we trying to get rid get ready for that wedding I told myself that I would never have such a fancy event. Instead, I wanted a simple gown, and I wanted to wear beautiful and inexpensive white topaz gemstones for my event. I wanted to figure out ways to make things easier on everyone. The stress of a formal event was just too much, and I knew that there are much more economical ways to have a beautiful day without stressing everyone out. Life is too short for anyone to deal with frustrating things.

When I was first invited to the formal event, I was excited. The last time that I had a chance to wearing anything formal was when I was in high school and went to a dance that my date invited me too. Continue reading

Fitting a Second Story over the Garage to Tie into a Newer Home Extension

I have always believed that you get what you pay for. That is why I always hire the best professional for whatever job that I need done. I used to hire handymen to do odd jobs around both my house as well as my company. The work was always okay, but it was never great. That is when I realized I needed to just hire professionals, so the job would be done right the first time. I needed to find a company that did roof repairs for Gold Coast about two years ago when my wife and I decided to build a second floor to the garage attached to our house. We were building over the garage and tying into the gable roof and extension we did years ago on the second floor of our house. Continue reading

Found a Nice Place in the Country

We were a little surprised that we found a place which was as affordable as this one is. It is not very big at all and it is not really in a good location for me, but Katie is starting a new teaching job and she is going to be quite close to the school. The place is out in the country, just beyond the suburbs of Bowling Green. If you click here you will see how I figured out where to get gas for the house. I was really delighted when I saw that the house had a natural gas tank and a very good heating system. In fact it works almost too well. It was pretty cold the first night we moved in and we turned on the heat. Continue reading

Becoming an Even More Successful Photographer

I knew that I wanted to go to design school, and I was quite happy when I found one that has a 12 month program. I am a photographer, and I just wanted to be able to edit my pictures a lot better than what I was capable of. I did not need to go to a university to learn this. I looked over the structure and modules of the course before applying, and I was happy that this school would be able to help me in the areas that I was lacking, which would make me a better photographer.

I liked that I would only have to devote three hours a day for five days of the week to it. This would take place in 12 week courses over the course of four terms. I could have taken a part time course, but I wanted to get the full experience. Having nine hours of courses per week rather than 15 meant that I would be missing out on something, and I just did not want that. Continue reading

He Was Being Honest with Me About What Would Happen

I can fully admit that I am more than a bit lazy when it comes to taking care of things outdoors in my yard. Whether it is letting the grass get too tall, or raking leaves or taking care of the trees outdoors, I so often let things slide before they became a problem. At one point around six months ago a company employee who is an expert with tree service in Brooklyn NY was next door trimming my neighbor’s trees. He took a look at the very tall ones in my yard and pointed out that mine had branches that were dying and they needed to come off before they hit my car. I brushed off what he had to say as something that probably wouldn’t happen.

No more than 3 weeks after I was given the advice about my trees, we had a really bad thunderstorm. I woke up during the night when heavy winds and lightning woke me up. I remember hearing a loud crash around 3AM, when I was woken up a second time. I wondered if a tree branch outside fell and hit the sidewalk.

The next morning, I went outside and suddenly remembered that there had been a rough storm just hours earlier. I look around, and that is when I saw the 8 foot and very heavy branch sitting just 2 feet away from my car. I rushed over, and sure enough, it had hit the car and bounced off and landed where I saw it. The top and side of my car were severely dented. The paint was scratched badly. The unfortunate thing is that I only had basic insurance on my car, so I was either going to have to pay to fix my care out of my own pocket or live with it. Had I listened to the employee weeks earlier, the problem would not have occurred in the first place.

A Celebrity on the Internet

I heard that once you buy twitch followers, your channel changes like you would never have expected. I didn’t really believe this, and I didn’t want to spend any money on followers, much less anything else. I guess that comes from my natural ability to be cheap. One day I was thinking about it, and since I had some money to spare, I bought some followers. I was not prepared for what would happen after that.

After buying the followers, tons of people started to flock to my channel. They would show up even when I wasn’t streaming to wait for me to start streaming. Continue reading

Mom Wanted to Learn How to Do the Same Thing That I Do

Mom stopped fighting with me about the things that I wear once she saw that I was doing what I could to do odd jobs in order to earn money and buy some of my own clothes. That helped her to understand that I am no longer a child and have a voice of my own about what I want to wear and that my voice should be respected. The very first thing that I bought with my babysitting money was a blue and pink mohair sweater that I had been wanting for quite some time. It finally went on sale, and I got it for 60 percent off. Since I bought it in an off-season, I saved a lot of money. This began my love affair with finding deals. Continue reading

Gets Rid of an Unsightly Bum

If you had told me my girlfriend would get me to look into male anal bleaching, I would have laughed in your face. I couldn’t imagine any scenario in which I would use such a product. It’s ridiculous on the face of it, yet depending on the nature of your relationship it isn’t that far out there. We like to get up to all sorts of things in our bedroom and she, being from England, groused about having to look at my unsightly bum. When I finished laughing she suggested I use a bleaching cream to lighten things up.

Well, after I made a lot of noise she got me to look online about it a few days later. I didn’t think it was a big thing, but apparently it is. People buy creams to lighten the skin around their privates in order to make them look youthful, I think, or cleaner. There is some usefulness there I think. Continue reading

A Big Enough Apartment for the Six of Us

When I started looking at a new condo to move into, I knew that it could possibly be hard because my wife and I have four children. They had each been sharing a bedroom with one other, but we knew that it was time for them to have their own rooms since they are all getting older, especially our oldest daughter. My wife had started looking since it could take a while to find what we wanted, but as soon as she saw the Bellewoods EC floor plan for a five bedroom unit, she told me that it was as if it was made just for us.

At the far end is the master bedroom with a large walk in closet and its own private bath. Just next to it is the first bedroom, where our youngest son could use. Continue reading

I Got a Job at Walmart

I have been able to get a job at Wal Mart working in the sporting goods department. Of course I am too young for them to trust me with the sale of the weapons, but for instance I am selling stuff like butler creek scope covers and other firearms accessories. Mostly I am in the sale of the stuff like fishing equipment, because I have a really good knowledge of that stuff. I have been fishing for all of my life pretty much, at least since I was big enough to hold a rod and reel. Of course the big thing I am thinking is that this is going to be a good reference on my resume, but I am going to be going to college in about six months. So I am not going to be here very much longer. In the meanwhile I need to earn as much money as I am going to be able to set aside. Continue reading

Postcards Used to Advertise Charity Drive

Our newspaper agreed to let us run a non-rpfit charity advertisement insert in the midweek edition at no cost if we had the insert printed ourselves. They gave us sizes we could choose from so their machines could automatically insert one into each newspaper printed. We chose a standard 4×6 postcard size since we could also mail ones out to people outside of the area and to those who do not subscribe to or buy the newspaper. Then we found a place that would help us save on postcard printing for a huge quantity of 50,000. They have great prices on small quantities too.

We had a full bleed full color postcard printed on one side with the information for our charity drive. It had our name, address, website info and phone number too. Our charity drive slogan along with a blurb about the need was mentioned too. People inclined to give would go to the website or call us for more information. The cards that were printed were beautiful. They were glossy and the colors were very vibrant. Continue reading

Jumping into the Tablet World

I’ve been holding out on buying a tablet ever since they became mainstream. I’ve always used a laptop for my computing needs, because they’re more powerful than tablets generally. For me, the only convenience was that tablets weigh less than most laptops, and it’s a little bit more comfortable to use them on the bed. Now, my stance on tablets has changed. Since the newest iPad has been announced, the other models will get some great deals during the holidays. For Cyber Monday iPad deals 2015, I’m going to get an iPad that has a lot of storage space.

I don’t plan to get rid of my laptop. I’m simply going to use the tablet as an addition to the laptop. There are some things the laptop can do that the tablet can’t, and vice versa. It’s best to keep both devices and have the best of both worlds. One thing I’m looking forward to with the tablet I’m going to purchase is the ability to use apps. Continue reading

Going Local is Not Always the Best Answer

I realize that being a kid means that your parents handle most of life’s little issues so that you don’t have to worry about them. But I know for a fact that the products and services my parents used when I was very young were made well and service was typically good. I wanted to try to stay local with some of the things I use, so I chose a small, independent cable provider to get service from. After numerous problems, I was ready to give up. So, when I saw an advertisement about satellite television packages offered by a much bigger and well-known company, I found myself browsing the information anyway. I wondered if the switch would be what I needed.

I called them to ask some questions and was pretty happy to see that their prices are almost half of what the local provider was charging me. Continue reading

Save on Replacement Blades for Shaving by Using the Best Safety Razor Instead of Cartridges

I like the razors that my dad used. I am not fond of those plastic multi-bladed designs. Dad used a regular razor, and I did too as a young teenager. I wanted to go back to that traditional shave so I looked up reviews for the best safety razor made today. I’m talking about the ones that take a single flat blade. You turn the base of the handle to open the top of the razor. Two little doors fold up so you can replace the blade. It is a cool design that goes way back. They give a really good shave, and you do not have to pay an arm and a leg for replacement blades.

Cheaper blades make it worthwhile to put a new one in for every shave if you want to. Continue reading

Turning a Leaf and Going Organic

I have been doing a lot of research lately and I have come to the firm conclusion that I need to switch all of the food over to organic food, and just throw away the old food in my house or something. Maybe I can give it to charity, but to be honest, I would feel bad doing that. I do not like the idea of giving someone else this food, full of chemicals and such. I now know I should eat organic and I am reading on New Century Organic website to learn more about how I can buy their products in order to use to make all of my family’s food.

I wish that I had done some research on organic food earlier. Continue reading

The Fear of Living Alone

After discovering this medical alert systems review, I began to dig into the history of the medical alarm out of pure curiosity. Home alert systems were conceived and developed in Germany in the early 1970s by Wilhelm Hormann with the aim of developing new comprehensive structures for ambulatory and non-ambulatory care for the sick, the elderly, those who live alone, and disabled persons. Hormann’s concept of “home alert” is thus to be seen as fairly broad, including the communication of biomedical data and social communication, and not limited to use as an “elder alarm”.

A medical alarm is an alarm system designed to signal the presence of a hazard requiring urgent attention and to summon emergency medical personnel. Other terms for a medical alarm are Personal Emergency Response System or medical alert. Continue reading
