My buddy Ike borrowed one of those little bull dozer things from his boss and the two of us went up to the lake this weekend. We left after work on friday and I took a john boat with a little outboard motor. It is not much of a boat, but you can lift it up and put in the back of the truck, then put all the camping gear in after it. We worked a little and fished a lot, then we drank a lot of beer. I need to find the energy providers for Texas who are willing to hook the power up for me. I think that I have to work on a short term move. It would be a good enough thing to have a small camper trailer in the short term. I just need a place to keep the beer cold and a place that will stay warm when it is cold and cool when it is hot.
I figure that the power company will want me to have a structure of some sort before they will turn the power on. Of course I am going to need power to build the house and I am going to have to spend a lot of time working on it. The idea is to do it in stages. First you would put the foundation in. Then you would put in the shell of the house. I would probably get some pros to help me with that part of it. I know some guys who are able to do it all and I am thinking that I can work out a bit of horse trading with some of them. Once you have a roof and a floor you can work on putting in the walls and the carpets and that stuff.Click On This Link
When I was a kid, our fun was playing with neighborhood kids outside. We would play hide and seek, build tree houses, and just explore everywhere possible. Times have changed drastically since then, which is evident with my children. Instead of asking for a baseball mitt or a pogo stick, my 14 year old daughter asked me to buy her a selfie stick instead. I had no idea what this was, but I knew that it had to do something with either her phone or a video game accessory. She showed me a website that sells the selfie sticks, and I had to admit that it was the perfect item for her.
She loves to take videos and pictures with her phone. She often takes videos of herself to send to her grandparents. They live nearly 2,000 miles away, so they cherish these videos a good bit. She explained that with the selfie stick, she would be able to take better videos and could even start posting them on her social media site so others could see them too. She is a very cautious girl, so I knew that she would be careful about what she posted.
Knowing that her passion seems to be in this, I wanted to buy her the stick she wanted. I am used to the tech things she asks for costing a small fortune, so this was also a nice surprise that it was extremely affordable. It even comes in a variety of colors, but I already knew she would want the pink one. I was able to order it the same day, and she was using it the same week. My mom told me that the videos they get from her now are a lot better since she has better control of her phone while she is taking them.
I have a lot of trees on my property, and it is several more trees than I want to have. I am sick of having to pick up so many sticks, and acorns, and having to deal with the leaves that fall out of the trees in winter. I should have cut down some of these trees, when they were but saplings. However, I did not anticipate such issues, and let them live to maturity. That has came back to bite me, as now I need to find tree service in long island to hire for the job. I am thinking that I would like to have at least half of the trees in my yard cut down, but I doubt that I can afford that.
I need to work with a contractor that does tree work, to figure out a price for an acceptable amount of work. I am going to get the most problematic trees cut down first, and then I will worry about other ones, if I have more money to spend. I really have no idea how much money it is going to cost to get what I want done, but I kind of suspect that it is going to be out of my price range.
There are a few trees that are over 100 feet tall, and they are located close enough to my house, such that they could hit my house, if they were to fall. That troubles me quite a bit, and those are some of my highest priority trees to have cut down. I think that they are pretty old anyway, and likely close to the end of their life span. I actually worry about them falling quite a bit, and I would like to get rid of them to ease my mind.Click On This Link

It has only been a few weeks since I moved into the duo residences, but I feel it is safe to say that I am absolutely loving my time here. I didn't expect to fall in love with a city but I have completely given my heart over to Singapore! It was just a few short weeks ago that I decided to do something completely different with my life. I sold my house. I quit my job. I bought a plane ticket and a condo in Singapore; drastic measures to change my life, but measures that had to be taken if I really wanted to create change. I have never been an individual who tries to do things simply. I knew that doing this was going to be challenging but the more difficult that I make things for myself, the more I will adapt and overcome these challenges. That is the only way to truly ensure that I am doing my best.
I have always been told that I make things difficult for myself but I have always managed to overcome these challenges. It might be an intuitive action; how else do we know our limitations if we are not challenged? How do we not learn new things if we're faced with challenges? Coming to Singapore was a true challenge; with no friends or family in the area, I had to make my own way into this place. Finding work, thankfully, was easy enough. Access to the Internet can provide for nearly anything you might want for, when it comes to financial need. As a writer, I can find work without even trying; it might not always pay the most but I can edit transcripts, e-books or even write articles for search engine optimization utilities. There are many options for a writer on the web.
After applying for online BR1M, I was able to make some changes in my life. Before getting BR1M, I had been a worker at a construction agency. Unfortunately, since there wasn't much need for construction in a bad economy, there was no need to keep paying the workers. A staff of over 75 people had lost their jobs in an instant. Many had families to take care of and kids to feed. Some were taking care of their elderly parents who could no longer support themselves. In my case, I had to take care of both. I was the head of the household, and without a job, everything around me would crumble.
For a while, I didn't know what to do. I thought my family would have to live on the streets, and my parents would suffer a worse fate without the proper care. Life as I knew it was coming to an end in my eyes. Then I learned about the BR1M program, and my outlook on like suddenly changed. If I could get money from BR1M, I would be able to take care of my family while I find a job to replace the old one I lost. Immediately I went online and applied to the program.
I was approved for BR1M, and they sent me enough money to support my family. Every day while I was on the program, I went out to look for jobs. I even did small tasks for money. Even though they weren't the same as a regular job, they still helped out, because they gave me enough money to keep my family fed and pay for medication. Things didn't stay this way for long. I found another job outside of the construction field, and now my wife, kids, and parents get the care they need.Click On This Link
