I’m Doing What My Grandpa Did for a Living

When I was a kid, my grandfather was a long-haul truck driver. I remember how much he used to say that he loved it. I was trying to figure out what to do with my own life, so I started looking around to find out what is the best trucking company for new drivers these days. My grandfather passed away many years ago, so I didn’t have the ability to sit down and talk to him about it and learn what his advice would be. However, I wish that he was alive today so that he could learn that I’m now a driver just like he was. I know that he would feel really good about my choice and proud that I chose something that he used to do for a living.

My parents were really unhappy with me for a long time because they saw that I was not going to college like my other brothers and sister did. Continue reading I’m Doing What My Grandpa Did for a Living

Great Canned Dog Food for an Older Dog

My wife bought Kirkland Signature Natures Domain canned dog food because our old dog just couldn’t handle hard food anymore. For years we feed him food that came in a bag and he always loved it. Then old age crept in, and with it bad teeth. We noticed he wasn’t eating much of his hard food and, when he did, he made noises like he felt pain. A trip to the veterinarian confirmed that he had bad teeth and that we should probably switch to some sort of soft canned food so he could still get his nutritional needs met.

The problem we faced right from the start was finding the right food. Since we only bought hard food for years, we didn’t have many ideas about what brand to try. The wife got a membership to Costco through her employer, and we decided to try their Kirkland brand. Continue reading Great Canned Dog Food for an Older Dog

How I Found a Good Queens Tree Service Firm

Outside of my home, there is an old elm tree that is no longer in very good shape. Recently, my wife and I decided that it was time to have it removed. We knew that this was not a job that we could safely do on our own, so we started looking for a good Queens tree service firm. We had to find a company that could get the job done quickly and for a reasonable price. If we looked around and considered our options, we knew that we could find what we needed without too much difficulty.

I was starting to worry that the tree might fall over in a storm and damage our home or some other structure in the neighborhood. The last thing that I wanted was for a tree to come crashing down on us in the night. If we did not get the tree taken down soon, anything could happen. Continue reading How I Found a Good Queens Tree Service Firm

A Trip to My New Dentist

I was hoping to find a dentist well before I needed to go see one when I moved to my new home, but it did not work out that way. When the alert came up on my calendar that it was time to schedule my next dental cleaning, I knew that I had to hurry and find one in the area that was accepting new patients. I did a fast search online to find the best dentist in Launceston because this was something I take very seriously.

I have only had one cavity in my life, and I was not about to increase that number because I did not see a dentist when I was supposed to. I also was not going to go and see any dentist. I work with the public, so my smile is very important to me. I wanted to make sure that the dentist I went to is the best in the area. I am used to doing a lot of research for work, so I did not mind having to do this to find a great dentist. Continue reading A Trip to My New Dentist

This Past Weekend Was a Very Fun Time That Ended Up in a Bit of a Disaster for Me. You See, I Was at a Cookout with Some Friends and Family to Celebrate My Best Friends Birthday. Everything Went Very Well, That is Until I Decided to Have a Piece of

I have often heard that you find out your family’s true colors when another family member dies. That is exactly what happened with my brother and sisters. Their greed has really displayed itself after the death of my father. When my father died he left his 200-acre farm to me and my four brothers and sisters and they are now fighting over how much it is worth and how much money they will be getting from the sale of it. As the executor of the estate, I need to enlist the help of a real estate appraiser in Sacramento. I am going to find somebody who can give us an accurate and detailed report as to exactly how much the house, land, and buildings are worth. We need an honest and unbiased appraisal that will enable us to put this part of the estate on the market to sell. I don’t want to see our family torn apart any more than what it already is and this seems to be the most viable solution to the problem. Continue reading This Past Weekend Was a Very Fun Time That Ended Up in a Bit of a Disaster for Me. You See, I Was at a Cookout with Some Friends and Family to Celebrate My Best Friends Birthday.

My New Song for My Bride

My wedding gift to my lovely bride is going to be a song. She loves to hear me sing along to the radio, and karaoke night is one of our favorite things to do when we are going out with friends. What she isn’t too aware of yet is that I enjoy writing songs too. I am not that great at writing music though, which is probably because I don’t play any instruments. I knew that I needed to have great music though, especially if it was something like Drake type beats.

I asked my friend who likes to mess around with sound but he told me he was not able to make something sound that professional. I thought that was it until he told me the next day about a website he had found. Continue reading My New Song for My Bride

I Am More Organized with a Storage Unit

Some people accuse me of being a pack rat, but nothing could be further from the truth. I do collect a lot of things, but it is not because I have an obsession with any of them. I just like to purchase things at different discount stores and flea markets that I think I can sell online at one of my auction sites. There are times when things move really fast, and other times I may hold onto items for a year before they sell. That is why I looked into storage units in Winnipeg not too long ago. Continue reading I Am More Organized with a Storage Unit

They Fixed Up Mom’s Flat Quite Nicely

I had to help my mother by finding a Sydney wallpaper installation solution because she suddenly got it into her head that she need to fix up her place. That’s fine, but she expected me to do most of the work. That wasn’t going to happen for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that I’ve got my own family and simply don’t have the time nor the energy to stand around over there trying to hang wallpaper in her cramped house. I don’t have the knowledge to do it, either. I’m not up to the task.

My mother and I decided to visit a local store that’s been around for ages. Continue reading They Fixed Up Mom’s Flat Quite Nicely

A Small Loan to Upgrade Our Equipment

Finding equipment financing for Toronto was easier than I thought it would be. I didn’t think any bank would be interested in loaning a small business money to upgrade a few forklifts. We’re a small furniture company and we needed to get our forklifts replaced because they were old and not reliable. The company didn’t have a lot of money because cash is tight at this time, but it would get tighter still if we didn’t have the equipment needed to get the orders out to the sales floor and to the customers. My boss tasked me with finding a way to get the money to replace the forklifts.

I tried a few of the bigger banks around the city and got a flat refusal to do any business with us. Truth be told, I wasn’t surprised. A lot of banks won’t do business with small companies because they don’t think it is worth their time or energy. Continue reading A Small Loan to Upgrade Our Equipment

Living Alone Means That I Need to Be Careful with My Spending

Ever since I decided that I needed to live alone, I have been doing all that I can to work hard, stay home when I can and save money. I borrow books from the nearby library. I have always played video games, and I can use cheats for Virtual Families 2 so that I can play without any problems. I can’t complain much. While I certainly can’t go out and blow money, there are plenty of things that I have been able to do to save money. It simply takes thinking about how to do things that you regularly do in an inexpensive way.

I wouldn’t say that I was frivolous with my spending when I had roommates, but I do need to be careful now that I’m on my own. In the past, I thought nothing of going to a movie and buying lots of snacks at the concession stand in the lobby. Continue reading Living Alone Means That I Need to Be Careful with My Spending

I Helped My Boss with His New Bathroom

Of course there is not any way that he could have done this on his own and I am not so sure that it was a great idea for him to trust me with the task. The boss has been talking about this for a long time and this week his wife had gone to West Virginia to see her favorite aunt. At any rate he and I got to work almost as soon as she was gone. He bought a black towel radiator and a new vanity along with some new shower fittings. Continue reading I Helped My Boss with His New Bathroom

I Fought My Diabetes from the Start

Diabetes is not a fun disease to have. The really bad part of it is that if you don’t take care of it, the complications will come much sooner rather than later. Complications don’t always occur, especially if you are taking the best possible care of yourself, so that is what I decided to focus on when I was first diagnosed with it. I went online to look at the best resources, and I ended up reading a Diabetes Destroyed review that really changed how I decided to approach this disease.

My uncle was diagnosed with diabetes when he was a little younger than me, but he never took care of it. His sugars were constantly high, and it ended up being the death of him. I wanted to make sure I was doing everything the right way, and this book ended up having all of the things I needed to read in order to fight this condition as hard as I can. Continue reading I Fought My Diabetes from the Start

There Was Hope for the Problems That I Have Having

It took me awhile to figure out why my hair and skin were in such poor condition. I haven’t changed my daily hygiene routine in years, so it was puzzling to have such dry hair and skin. I went through a variety of different things to try to remedy the issues, and it took me awhile to realize that I could really benefit from installing a chlorine shower filter in my shower. I had no idea that these were even a thing, but now that I have one of my own, I never want to go without one. It has really made an extensive difference.

I felt so bright all of the time. So I started out by drinking more water. This is because I’ve never really been good at it. I know that you’re supposed to drink a certain amount every day, but I always ignored that. Instead, I opted for a lot of soft drink, coffee, teas and other things that are not really good for you. This is because they made me happy mentally. I did see a marked difference when I increased my water intake, and I even felt better, too. But it didn’t solve my problems completely. I had to do more research.

After talking to a lot of people and reading a lot of different things, I tried changing up the products that I had been using for years. This really didn’t do all that much for me other than drain my wallet. Finally, someone told me about chlorine filters and pointed out that it changed their life when they installed one. Based on that info alone, I bought one. It took only one shower to notice the difference in the way my skin & hair feels. They are both so much softer, and after a month, I have seen the full benefits and I’m happy again.

I Am Going to Quit Smoking

I have started a serious effort at quitting cigarettes, although I have decided not to try to give up nicotine all at once or cold turkey. It is not the first time that I have attempted to quit smoking, and I have failed in a number of ways. None of them will be pleasant, but I have decided that I shall try to slowly wean myself from the stuff. At the moment I have decided to try vaporizing the stuff, I went to a site called Taft vapes after I did some research and I tried to find the best way to start using one of those devices. The theory goes something like this, it is based on something that a guy I used to work with told me he had done, that is that you need to find some alternate activity. Or as the saying goes, idle hands are the devil’s workshop. Continue reading I Am Going to Quit Smoking

I Never Even Though About Using Pears As a Dog Treat Until Someone Asked Me if Dogs Can Eat Pears

Dogs like some fruits and vegetables. However, don’t just feed you pet everything you eat. There are plenty of things you can eat that can kill your dog. Also, some dogs are much more highly susceptible to substances. For example, I have personally seen some dogs eat a small amount of grapes and never get sick. Other ones can eat one grape or raisin and have their kidneys fail and die. Someone asked me can dogs eats pears. I was not sure about that one as I do not care for pears myself and never had them around the house with our dogs.

We are finding out about new things that can cause death or serious harm to dogs that we never considered. Continue reading I Never Even Though About Using Pears As a Dog Treat Until Someone Asked Me if Dogs Can Eat Pears

Overseas Clients Still Have to Pay

I did business with a couple of clients who live in a different country. All was well until they decided not to pay me and cut off all contact. I made calls, sent letters, and even tried emails, but there was no response from the clients. Since the clients were located overseas, I bet they thought they wouldn’t have to pay what they owed because they were in another country. They were wrong about that one, because I started looking into international collection services, and discovered that it was possible to get them money from them.

I like to give people the benefit of the doubt and assume that they’re having some kind of trouble making payments most of the time. Continue reading Overseas Clients Still Have to Pay

Sometimes You Learn the Hard Way That Setting Ground Rules is Important

I remember talking to my best friend many years ago about how I fully believe it is important to pay attention to what children are doing online. She, in return, said that she felt the opposite way and she felt strongly about that. Well, she has now changed her mine. She asked me recently if there’s a Snapchat hack that would allow her to see what her teen son was up to on that program. When I told her that I was curious as to why, she said it was because she felt her son was in over his head with something, but she wasn’t sure exactly what that would be.

My friend discussed having a mother’s intuition that day with me. I knew exactly what she was talking about because I had that same intuition with my own two daughters. Many other parents discuss one another often about how they figure out something is off with their child. Continue reading Sometimes You Learn the Hard Way That Setting Ground Rules is Important

My Boys Are Smarter Than Me when It Comes to Technological Things

My kids are really good at playing video games. Of course, they are good at so many other things, too. But I have long been amazed at how quickly my boys picked up working with computers and how fast they understand all the ins and outs of the different games. Since I am their dad, I like to play with them at times as well. But I am not as good at these things they are, so they told me about Forge of Empires cheats that I can use that help me to keep up with them during the game. I don’t fall behind so much now.

I don’t think that my two boys are absolute geniuses. Continue reading My Boys Are Smarter Than Me when It Comes to Technological Things

Up Your Game with a Copper Wedge

If you’re having trouble with your golf game, look into getting a Callaway forged copper wedge. How will it help your game? Let’s say you are like me and have trouble navigating the various hazards most golf courses have these days. Hazards are only a problem if you are not using the proper club to get past them. That is where this wedge comes in. Now you can use your old wedge that is likely heavy and interferes with your swing, or you can do what I did and get this type of wedge. The benefits are amazing.

The best thing about a copper wedge is that it is much lighter than your typical wedge. Continue reading Up Your Game with a Copper Wedge

Honda Accords Are Put Together in the United States

My All-American neighbor who is very political about keeping jobs in the US drives around in a 2016 Accord Coupe. However, he does point out that the Accord is assembled in Ohio. There is that global market thing where parts are sourced from different countries with final assembly being in America. That is better than nothing. It is nice having car plants still operating in the United States. I pass one on the way to a friend’s house who lives in Ohio. It is only about an hour from my house. The Honda brand is Japanese, but they are put together here. This is how my friend can support American manufacturing while still driving an import that he says provides him a high value for his car-buying dollars.

I like the Honda Pilot SUV. I have not ever been a car person. I have always been into vehicles that have at least some off-road capability. At the bare minimum, I like a vehicle that can get you through the winter snows here. They are not as bad as they are a bit farther north.
