When I started my toy business, I didn’t think about it in the same way that other people do when they start a business. To me, it was a labor of love, and I was there on the ground floor as all of the toys were being made. Unfortunately, my involvement alone wasn’t enough to keep the business from experiencing financial troubles. When the business reached it’s lowest point, I had to rethink my strategy. I treated the business more like a business and focused on its growth. I made a KPI report to show how the business could get itself back into the black.
While everything in the KPI report looked sound, I still had to implement it in order for it to truly work. I didn’t want any sacrifices in quality for the production of toys in my company. Read more
I have never liked a lot of trees around my house. When I was younger, a tree was struck by lightning, and it went right through our roof. Granted, it was a huge tree, but that has scared me against trees being that close to wherever I am living. That doesn’t mean I don’t like trees though; I just want them a healthy distance from the house so if they do fall over, they aren’t going to damage the house or hurt anyone inside it. I also have a tree service in Nassau County that comes out on a regular basis and inspects and treats the trees that I do have.
I know some people might say that I am being overly cautious, but I don’t think so. Those same people have probably never seen a seemingly healthy tree get taken down like it was just a twig. Read more
Our square building sat in a neighborhood that had thrived as long as it has been a neighborhood. The buildings were a mix of old and new. There were considerations for building a new building that had to be met by the local authority. It was easier and cheaper to redo the interior of a building to make it suitable for a tenant than to build something brand new. We gutted the old square building taking out the second floor entirely. The interior had high ceilings. We called a firm that does roof installation in Manhattan NY to have them tell us how much it would be to fully remove the roof and replace it. The roof was flat and was made up of metal trusses with corrugated metal sheeting and a rubber membrane and gravel on top.
The metal trusses were rusted, and so was a lot of the corrugated metal. It looked bad from the inside. No amount of flat black paint was going to hide it. The tenant was a premium lessee, and we were accommodating. Technically the trusses could be saved, but new ones would sure look a lot better. Read more
When I took a trip to Canada last year, I fell in love with it so much that I wanted to move there. There was just something about the place and the people that made it better than where I was already living. I gave it some thought, and decided that it would be best if I became a Canada PR. The lifestyle of the people in Canada aligned more with what I wanted, so it was only natural that I should move there and live out the rest of my life in complete happiness.
Moving from one country to another isn’t exactly the easiest thing to do. You have to fill out paperwork to get yourself registered as a legal citizen, and the process can take a while, depending on who is processing the information. There is also the issue of money and fees. You have to have money to travel to another country, and if you’re bringing items with you, that’s going to cost even more money. Read more
My daughter has always seemed musically inclined, ever since she was a toddler. I don’t know where she gets it from because neither her father or I care much about that topic. By the time she reached seventh grade, she had to pick an instrument to play, as all the other kids in her class did. She loved it and blew past the other kids. That was when I realized that music school may benefit her, so I enrolled her in classes elsewhere, too.
I remember needing to choose something to play back when I was her age, too. I went to the same school that she is now attending. I dreaded it. I just had no interest, and once the teacher began teaching me, I was not very good at it. Read more
I have been working on my android programming, but it is a difficult thing and the big problem is that I am trying to learn it on my own in my spare time. It is a lot easier to find the time during the summer when I am out of school, but obviously there are a lot of other things that are a lot more fun. I got this idea from this girl I was trying to get close to. She was telling me one of her friends had found a kik hack tool on her phone. Of course in this case it is very likely that her parents had placed it on the phone, which is legal since they technically own the telephone. Read more
My wife Jinju and I have been married to each other for three years. We are so in love with each other. Our relationship is somewhat weird to others. We both come from totally different backgrounds, but we still in love despite our differences. We both have different careers, countries of origin, and languages. One thing that we discovered was that we both loved salsa dancing and Spanish culture. I actually met my wife Jinju at a Spanish restaurant in Dempsey Hill. It was a nice restaurant with a dance floor for patrons. It was also where we had our first date. I wanted to do something special for my wife. I took her to that same restaurant to celebrate the anniversary of our union together.
My wife and I are totally different people. I am a black American from Georgia. My wife Jinju is from the country of South Korea. She moved to America while she was in college. She did not know English that well. She went to law school and is a successful lawyer. I am a successful television producer. Our differences may be obvious to the outside world, we still feel that we were made for each other.
The restaurant where I met Jinju is full of some of the best memories of my life. I can perfectly recall the first time I met Jinju. I remember that night like it happened yesterday. I was really shy about dancing because I was not very good at it. I liked salsa dancing, but never had real lessons. Jinju walked up to me. She was so nice and friendly. She looked so beautiful in her dress. She asked if I wanted to dance and I agreed. She took me by the hand and led me to the dance floor. She was as graceful as a swan. I could tell she had training. I knew from that one dance that I had to make this woman my wife.
My dad is stubborn. He has been retired for years and is slowing down a bit. Mom wants an air conditioner at least in the bedroom so she can sleep better. They have casement windows, and a window unit costs a fortune for that type of window. You can get one for a standard double-hung window for about $200. It is about three times that much for windows that open vertically. He said he won’t pay more for the same thing made to fit a different window. I called a place that does AC installation in NYC to see how much central air would cost.
I figured that since they already have a forced-air heating system, then adding an AC unit would not be outrageous. After all, they do not have to run new ducts. It is just putting coils inside on top of the furnace and the unit outside. A little plumbing with copper tubing and wiring a junction box is all the extra they need. They already have a four wire cable running up to the thermostat to add an AC system. Plus, I changed their thermostat for them awhile back, and it is ready to be hooked up to AC. Read more
I have just got started planning a trip to the Rockies in North Dakota. I am going to do a little elk hunting, but I am not quite sure that I have quite the rifle for the job. Of course elk hunting is usually done at extreme ranges, usually you are going to find a vantage point and wait for a herd of elk to come into range. I went around looking for the right rifle and I found one that was exactly right. It had an eight round cartridge holder on the butt stock and it was obviously the exact sort of thing that I needed.

When I decided to start looking for an apartment, I had a checklist of things that I wanted the one I picked out to have. I definitely wanted one that allowed small dogs, and also one that has a large swimming pool. I know most apartment buildings have fitness centers, but I have always enjoyed swimming over riding stationary bikes or lifting weights. I also wanted a nice apartment that would not cost a fortune, and I was able to find everything that I wanted at the the Marq Highland Park apartments that I looked at online.
I was able to look at pictures of everything there on the website, which really helped make the decision that much easier. Read more
I am not a freshman any longer and that means that they are going to let me move out of the dorms this semester. That is fine with me, since I never really liked sharing a room with a virtual stranger. He and I got along okay, but I was never comfortable around him because he was a bit strange or so I thought. So I have started hunting for apartments that I can afford. I am using the internet to do it and obviously I am looking for a place near the campus or at least on the campus’ bus lines. I have an old car, but from what it seems to me the thing is not going to be any use to me while I am here. Every time that I move the thing it is virtually impossible to find a place to park it when I get back here, or at least you never find a parking space in a reasonable amount of time. Read more
I am going to try to make some beats and re-mix some beats that my friend made on his computer. But in order to be able to do that, I am going to need to have a program to do that with. I do not have any software on my computer right nwo that is capable of mixing the beats that I want to look into finding an audacity free download for my computer.
I have heard good things about that software. I am not going to be able to download it right now, because I am riding in a car across the state, in order to get back to my apartment. I was out visiting my family for the holidays and now my brother is driving me back. Read more
When I bought a house in Brooklyn, I knew that all of my dreams had finally been answered. Not only did I marry a great guy and have three wonderful children with him, but we also found the perfect home in a school district that I was happy with. The only problem with the house were some of the trees were extremely large. I knew that I was going to contact a tree service in brooklyn ny to see about either pruning them or cutting them down before we even moved in. The trees are actually one of the things that appealed to me most, but that was only until my husband pointed out that their height was not healthy for the trees or for us. Read more
I am moving out of the apartment that I used to share with my girlfriend, and I am glad that things ended when they did, and did not wait until things got more serious. I guess that we were not meant to be together. I need to find a new place to stay, and I have been browsing the site for cypress lake apartments. I have decided that it looks like a pretty nice place to stay, and it meets most of my needs in a new apartment. As such, I am probably going to try to get a room there. I like the fact that the complex has a swimming pool. I know that a lot of apartment complexes have swimming pools, if not all of them. However, I have lived a place before that did not have a swimming pool, and that was not very pleasant. I have bad shoulders, and one of the things that I do as physical therapy, is to swim regularly. Read more
I contacted my local adt security company to get a monitored alarm system installed at my mother’s house after my father passed away. She has always had him for comfort and safety even as he aged and became more feeble. Initially it was just a peace of mind thing to help her cope with staying in the home alone now. However, it proved to be very helpful in saving her life when the included smoke detector went off at night when she was sleeping. She heard it but was slow in getting out of the house.
The fire department was dispatched as soon as the alarm monitoring agency got the signal that the smoke detector was going off. They called us too because we are on the call list for when an alarm sounds. Read more
When my wife found out that she was pregnant, we were so happy. We still are. Then, in her ninth month of pregnancy, we found out that we needed to move out of the place that we were renting. Our landlord didn’t even care that she was going to give birth any day. We refused to let stress overwhelm us, and we got to work on finding a good place to rent and a Singapore moving company to help us move in to the new place in a timely manner.
Finding a new place may seem easy for a person who lives in a part of the county where there are more rentals than there are people. But we live where there is a high number of people. And many people move here from other areas of the country because their are so many good jobs here. Sometimes, people can find themselves on a waiting list to get a chance to move into some of the best places. We also have two cats, and not all places allow you to have pets. So, we started immediately on finding a new place.
After weeks of scouring through rental information, my wife stumbled on a cottage just outside of our city. From the way it sounded, it sounded like a dream place. And we knew that little homes like that are snapped up immediately. We saw that the “for rent” info had been posted just minutes before we saw it. We called the number and asked how soon we could have a viewing. The landlord told us we could come immediately. We got there within 20 minutes, and instantly fell in love with the place. He said that five other people had already called him about it in that short space of time, which we believed because people were still calling while we stood there. We immediately signed a rental agreement right there on the spot.
Needing to get the word out about our company became my goal last year. We had been in business for many years, and we had been working steadily toward our goal of wanting to expand our customer base. It’s not something we had been careful about previously because you don’t want to expand before you’re ready to take on a large amount of business. But once we got to that point, it was time to do something about corporate video production in Singapore so that we could help brand our business.
I will be the first admit that we had not done much about getting our logo and info out in front of people in all the years we had been in business. Read more
My wife and I have been talking about having a threesome for a couple years now, but I did not think that it would actually ever happen. It was kind of something we just joked about, and I thought she would always be too jealous to actually give it a shot. But now I find myself looking for three some partners because it looks like she is actually okay with it, and more than that, it seems like she wants to make it happen. However, I am still not entirely convinced and I know that it is going to be kind of hard to find a partner for this that she will be okay with.
She has a lot of conditions on the person that we can get as a partner for our threesome. Read more
Around here they call them female problems. It is a polite way to talk about anything associated with the female reproductive system. I think that all girls should be taught medical facts about every one of their reproductive associated organs. There are girls whose parents and guardians do not even give them instruction on what to do when they start their periods other than to hand them a box of pads or tampons. Then for things such as discharges, odors, pain and other things, there can be recommendations for everything from Crystal X to sharing prescription drugs to home remedies. I think information about things such as vaginal health are important as well as knowing what products are safe to use in treating problems. I mean real information based on medical science. Not what you can typically find on a search engine. There are girls who are concerned about non-issue things such as tightening their vaginas. Plus, there are recommendations for treatments for discharges that typically occur during pregnancy. Read more
I remember years ago sitting back on the couch with some friends late at night, all of us having had too much alcohol to go out and grab some food for our favorite restaurant. I can recall us musing over the idea of a business model idea that would go out and get the food that you wanted no matter where it was or what time of the night it had been. Back then the idea would have been completely unwieldy – it would have been dependent completely on a phone service. Now food delivery in tampa is as simple as pulling up an app for, say, GrubHub – a company that will do that exact idea we had wished for. Read more
Buying the perfect today online is the way to go. It’s Monday the 30th which means it’s Cyber Monday for those who have been living under a rock. Whether you’re buying your favorite PS4 game, an Echo for your spouse or loved ones or even one of those famous Brazilian body wave hair bundles, practically everything right is on sale on the web. It’s a much better shopping experience than you’ll find out there in the real world. Me? I’ll stick with my digital silicon world of 1’s and 0’s where I can take advantage of some seriously sweet deals.
I don’t know why anyone even bothers to go out to those brick and mortar stores on Black Friday. This Black Friday here in Louisville resulted in a fist fight within the first hours of the store opening. Read more
Did you know that hair can be classified by a unique categorization method? I didn’t! I was idly browsing online looking for something to buy my sister who is really, really into cosplay. She’s been watching anime since she was a kid so it seems only natural that she would dress up as her favorite characters during Halloween which turned into a professional sort of cosplay thing that she does now. So in searching for something for her cosplay I stumbled onto this shop selling ‘4c natural hair’. Uh, what? At the time I couldn’t fathom what they were offering so I took a gander around the site and soon discovered a whole new world. Read more
I have been working as an animal trainer for awhile now. I have done some local commercials and TV shows. I made my own invoices from a website I found. Click here invoicehome.com This allowed me to make by billing the clients official looking to help keep respect high. I also have some business cards printed up and my own website with the animals I have and have worked with, though I can work with most anything. I can even help find animals to work with if they need something special. I have junior trainers that help me as well. I also have to make up invoices for them so they can be paid by the client if they work the job.
I got my break when an established trainer contacted me as they wanted to use my pet for a movie. Read more
I am starting to look very closely at how I want to get my new man cave set up. Of course I have to figure out what my budget is going to be first. You are going to have to know what you can afford and then you decide what you are going to do. RIght now I am looking at Directv packages and channels, because they are going to have the best deals on what I want. If you click here you will see the sort of deals that I am looking for, but I am not sure that I am going to go with any particular package yet. I would like to get all of the sports that you can get, but I really do not think that is going to be a practical option. Read more
