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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
Watching satellite TV on your PC delivered through the Direct TV Internet is the holy grail of entertainment today. As we step further into 2015 the hype has started and it seems that everywhere you look someone is trying to sell you something to make the dream come true. What exactly do these products do I ask? I’ve never tried one because I’m not convinced that I would be getting value for money. As far as I’m aware they don’t give you anything that you can’t find freely available elsewhere on the net. I’ve been getting quite interested in the possibilities presented by video over the Internet lately so I’ve done a little research and come to some fascinating conclusions.
You won’t find the same prime time programming on the Internet, as you get on satellite TV, not legally anyway, unless you pay for packages like HULU. Continue reading
When a cat knocks over something on your porch a few days after your neighbor’s house was burglarized while they were on vacation it makes you nervous. I was spending a lot of time wondering why we did not see or hear anything. We are not even sure when they broke in. It might have been while we were at work, or it might have been while we were sleeping. Hearing the noise the cat made I wondered what would happen if it was a criminal who did not make any noise. I went to http://home-security.io/ to look into getting a home security system to provide us early warning.
The main purpose of an alarm is to act as a deterrent. Security systems are great at that. Continue reading
Once upon a time, people were able to leave their front door unlocked and never had to second guess whether that would impact their safety in any way. Obviously this is no longer a reality, because home invasions and robberies seem to be on the rise. Certainly we all hope that it will never happen to us and there are many homes that will never be touched, but few people are willing to trust the safety of their loved ones and possessions to chance like this. Instead head over to wwww.home-security.co/ where ADT is offering an amazing plan to get security that will ensure everything is okay.
This plan is surprisingly affordable, to the point that most will not even notice it adding up over the years. Continue reading
I retired awhile ago but it took me some time to learn to enjoy it. While I always dreamed of having more time I didn’t have a firm plan of what to do with it. Some things I could so when younger I can not any longer. Also free time does not come with free money so my choices of what to do are limited due to funds as well. So at first I just sat and watched comcast cable tv and surfed the web. I only got out for chores like shopping. This was no way to spend my retirement though sadly it is how most people do spend theirs it seems.
First thing I did was finally get my fishing license. I kept saying I would for years but now I finally went and did it. I got my old gear together and headed to the lake. I just fished now and then both at the lake and in the river for trout. Then I bought more gear and began doing it more regular. Continue reading
I had the same cable company for nearly 20 years. The channels have grown by leaps and bounds, but I still was not getting all of the channels that I really wanted. I love Christian programming, plus I enjoy watching a lot of the movie channels. The cable company only offers a few channels per premium movie package, and there is only one Christian channel. When I started looking at direct tv packages online, I knew within minutes that I was going to switch over to them. I thought that I was not missing that many channels with my cable package, but it did not take me long at all to see that there are quite a few quality channels that I am not getting.
Even beyond that is the Christian programming that is available on Direct TV. Continue reading
I needed some electric work done on my house so I decided to hook up with an electric company in fort worth. They had stellar reviews so I figured they would be a good bet to work with. The people we bought our house from told us that everything was fine. They neglected to mention that there were tons of electrical problems throughout the house. Once we realized all the problems we were in total shock. Some of our friends told us that we just made a bad decision and that we’re going to have to eat it. I knew that there had to be some sort of way to fix all these problems so I decided to look through the Yellow Pages and find an electric company that was in Fort Worth.
I made calls to several companies to get an idea what they were about and to see what kind of prices they were willing to offer us. I also checked the references of these companies to see if they were legit or not. Without checking the references you really don’t know what you’re getting into. You could end up with a huge mess on your hands. And you could also be out of a lot of money. I know firsthand because I’ve made that mistake before. So once I found a company that had good reviews, we started negotiating on the price. We liked the estimate that they gave us and they said they would be able to finish the work within a reasonable amount of time. After a few weeks they were finished and all the problems in the house were taken care of. We shook hands and I told them that it was a pleasure doing business with them. I said that I would recommend their company to anyone I know who also needs electrical work done on their house.
I have decided that I am going to help my grandmother to get on the Internet, because she has wanted to start to use the Internet for a few months now, but I have not had time. I am going to help her to pick an internet service provider in the near future, and I have been consulting, internetproviders.us, to try to find a good internet provider to go through in this area. She does not need a very fast connection, because she is not going to do a whole lot on the Internet. I doubt she is going to try to stream any sort of videos, or use a service similar to that. I know for sure that she won’t be playing video games over the web. Continue reading
I need to buy datpiff streams to help to increase my popularity on the site. Or rather, I need to increase the popularity of my music, and get more people to listen to it. It is some really good music, and I think people will like it. More importantly, I hope that it will help me become famous, because that is the only thing I have ever wanted out of life. I am sure that it wiill be difficult to get the type of recognition that I will need to sign a major record deal.
But I am going to just take things one step at a time, and once I become famous, and I get my family out of these streets. I am actually planning to move to California once I make it big. That is where all of the beautiful people live, and I know that the beaches there are awesome. I have heard that southern California is one of the best places to live in the world, and I am eager to see how it is like to live there.
I have been producing music all week, and I just uploaded some new music to the site. I have not gotten very many views of it yet. I am trying to promote it online, through other means. I have been using social media, and such, but it is not really working yet. I guess that I need to have some more patience, but that is something that is really hard for me in general. I am not very good when it comes to having patience, and I hope to learn how to be more patient in the future. I know that this is going to happen eventually, I am just not sure about the timing and that kind of frustrates me.
I had an unfortunate event fall upon me. One of my neighbors because injured on the job and was stuck at home collecting insurance money while I healed. This is what I thought, until I saw him at the beach, and then at the gym, and then with a woman who wasn’t his wife. He was doing all of this without any injuries at all. He was committing insurance fraud. I knew that there was a whistleblower protection act in place that would allow me to tell, so I looked for a lawyer so that I could stop the wrong that was being committed.
After lots of searching, I found a lawyer willing to help me. Continue reading
Of course my kid is apparently special and always has been. I do not deny that and I realize it is different. Sianne is a beautiful girl and always has been, I am not the only one who thinks so. She models for catalogs and web pages that sell clothes to kids her age. It seems like money should be coming in from this, but it only seems to go out. She has been going to see a derby cosmetic dentist of late and apparently this is going to end up being something similar to buying a small car. Of course I should think that she shall have a beautiful smile when it is over, but I am quite sure she does not think she should pay me back out of all of the modeling money that she thinks that she will earn. I know this because I asked her if she was going to pay me back. It was as though she had never heard anything sillier in her entire life. Continue reading
There are many machines out there that can make your business run that much more smoothly. For example there is the vertical form fill seal machines. They take what was once a task that was left up to the trained professionals and they let a robot do it for a fraction of the cost. It lets you bring down overhead by a lot and charge your customers really competitive rates. Trust me when I tell you that it will make your profits soar because you can start offering sales and all sorts of other things. If you are on the fence about it I urge you to go ahead and jump over because the other side is just so much better. Continue reading
I suppose that I sort of deserved to be cold myself, because I knew that it was time to update that heating system and I did not do it. A couple of years ago I had a guy who is a heating contractor in morris county nj come by and give me an estimate on a new system. He flat out told me that he was not really interested in the job, because it would be such a pain and at that point in time he was really busy with the sort of big contracts that he prefers to do, which is what those guys call jobbing or something like that. It means when you go into a brand new building and put in the original heating and mechanical systems for a business or a complex of apartments or that sort of thing.
Of course he was saying it was a lot easier and simpler, because you could plan out every step of the way and expect that it would go more or less to the plan. Then he said that it would be a heck of a job to get rid of that boiler down in the basement and that he did not have the sort of time that it would take. I had to go beg him to do it this time and he got me in touch with some of his guys. Of course this is one of those off the books types of deals, meaning that no one is going to be telling the Internal Revenue Service about me paying them to put in the new system. They had to rent a cutting torch and cut up that old piece of junk. I was in charge of wrapping up all of the pieces in plastic before we took it out, elsewise it would have made a huge mess.
I need to get an apartment soon, because my parents are going to make me move out within the next month. They say it is for my own good, but I had hoped to be able to live here longer, and save up more money, before moving out. I know that they are right to some extent, I do need to be self sufficient. I found this site, that has the following URL: http://www.pavilionsapartments.com and it seems to have some good info about some apartments that are located close by to where I currently live.
It might be a cool place to live, but I will need to learn more about the apartments, and also, more about where it is located. I need to find somewhere that is fairly close to where I work, because I do not have a car at this point in time. Rather, I have been getting to and from work by using a bicycle for the last few years, and I hope to continue doing so. Continue reading
