Just Got to Work on the Lake House

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. Continue Reading

Why My Daughter Wants a Selfie Stick

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. Continue Reading

Best Tree Services for Long Island Area

Tree-rrific Tree ServiceI 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. Continue Reading

Changing the Way You Live

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. Continue Reading

The Dock to Forever

A couple of Great dock Illustrations The Dock to Forever Image by Stuck in Customs Daily Photo - The Dock to Forever One of the advantages of going down all the side roads is that you get to find cool places! After leaving Nelson on the South Island, we found a little lake on the map that looked about perfect. After a few hours of meandering, we discovered this place was almost completely empty (just like every place else on the South Island!). Even better, there was a perfect little dock jutting out into the lake. I first took a bunch of shots with my 14-24mm lens... but it was not really getting the dock with the distant valley in the right way. So, I put on my 70-200mm, zoomed in almost all the way, then backed up quite a bit to get the compression effect of the valley. Remind me to post the other version someday so you can see the comparison! I havent processed it yet -- but it is in my "Pile to Process" -- which is now 22,000 strong. In Limited Editions of 250...

Living with the Aid of BR1M

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.

Landscaping Ideas, Tips And Tricks For Your Property

If you are assembling your own landscape plan, add an estimate for the cost. List out each material, plant and even labor costs before you begin.

Movie Theaters in the US Industry Market Research Report from IBISWorld Has Been Updated

In the five years to 2019, the industry will benefit from rising consumer disposable income, which will encourage consumers to spend on entertainment. For this reason, industry research firm IBISWorld has updated a report on the Movie Theaters industry in its growing industry report collection. New York, NY (PRWEB) August 31, 2014 The Movie Theaters industry is struggling to bring viewers back to the silver screens. In recessionary 2009, the unprecedented success of Avatar, both in terms of gross box office and higher-priced 3D ticket sales, created a strong jump in revenue during that year, exemplifying the powerful influence of a single blockbuster on industry performance. However, competition from online streaming platforms has drawn moviegoers away from the theaters in the past five years. Sites like Netlfix and Hulu are providing attractive alternatives to viewers rising disposable income. As a result, IBISWorld expects industry revenue to grow at a weak annualized rate in the five years to 2014. According to IBISWorld Industry Analyst Click On This Link
