Sharing a Big House with Some Buddies

DirecTV Genie whole-home DVR reviewI was not sure this was going to work at first, but so far it has been pretty good. The other guys wanted me in on this deal because they needed me to help them to fix this place up. It works like this, the one guy inherited this big old house from his grand dad. It is not quite a mansion, but half a dozen people can live in this place without really getting in one another’s way. It has a satellite dish with and there is Directv on demand from a whole house DVR. It has about five different satellite boxes, so we all got our TVs in our own rooms, and there is another one in the living room. Of course this place has at least a thousand and one things that needs to be done to it. The other guys are paying rent, but for now I am paying with my skills.

The place has three bathrooms, but these were built in the pre history of plumbing. That is a bit of a joke, but it is not really that funny. We are starting out with the main one which is seeing the most use. Obviously it is the one nearest the living room and the lower level bedrooms. I am going to do it this weekend and I am going to hope that those guys can help me out to some extent, but it is not something I am pinning my hopes and dreams to. After that I move up to the second story where they have two bathrooms. One of them is in really bad shape, so it is going to be done first. After I finish with all three bathrooms the kitchen needs to be done, but that is going to be expensive and might not be soon.

Home Run Causes Need for Window Repair in Essex County NJ

I told the kids to play more outside and spend less time at the game console and TV in the living room. I went to the garage and got out the gloves, bat and ball to rally them to play some softball in the back yard. I even decided to pitch a few to get them motivated. It was not long until my wife joined in. She hit a pitch I made sending it right through the kitchen window. The kids thought it was hilarious. All I saw was dollar signs. I called window repair in Essex County NJ to come out and fix it.

The windows at our house were not even a year old. They are warrantied for all kinds of things, but softball damage caused by a wife that can swing a bat was not covered. Continue Reading »

Why We Got a Water Dispenser at Home

My kids used to hardly ever drink water. They always wanted to have fruit drinks or juice. I understand that they taste pretty good, but I was concerned because my kids were only drinking water when they would get it from a water dispenser when we were out and about. They especially loved the one at their father’s place of work, and I commented that we should get one at home. He thought it was actually a great idea for a few reasons, and he asked me to look at water cooler dispenser reviews so we could find the best one.

He didn’t want us to go with the same kind that his office uses because it is pretty messy at times. He knew that there were other types available though, and that is how I found myself looking at different water cooler dispensers online. Continue Reading »

An Abscessed Tooth is Painful

When I had an abscessed tooth, I was in the most pain I have ever been in. I have had three children by natural childbirth, so that should tell you about my pain level with my abscessed tooth. My regular dentist did not have the qualifications to do the surgery that was needed so I would not lose my tooth. He could have extracted my tooth, but that was a bad solution for a painful issue. He recommended an oral surgeon, and I went to their website, http://www.codenspecialists.com, before I made an appointment with them. Continue Reading »

I Just Found a New Place to Live

I just found a new place to live. Ian and I are going to move out of this place next week and we are going to split the cost of a two bedroom place at this apartment complex, http://www.creeksonkirklevington.com. It would be better for me if it was a little closer to the campus, but I am still going to be able to catch the bus and make it to school in a reasonable amount of time. Obviously there is not much point in trying to drive to school, that just leads to an endless waste of time. In fact Ian sold his car and I would be tempted to do the same if I did not need it to go see Anne on the weekends. Continue Reading »

Selfie Stick for Use with IPhone

I have this recent craze with taking selfies and then posting them to the internet. I am not sure what is so attractive about it to me, but I think that it has in part to do with the fact that I am using social media now more than ever before in my life. I am just so happy that it can keep me in touch with all of the people that I know. I am very excited about the prospect of getting a selfie stick iPhone version to help me to take selfies better. Sometimes you need to have the phone further away than is allowed by the length of your arm, and i believe that this is exactly the reason why the selfie stick is such a cool idea.

I wish that I had thought to make one, because I might be making some money right now, if I had thought to make them. But anyway, I am going to look into the prices. I am a bit short on money at the present moment. But I want to get one of these soon, if i am able to afford it, on account of the fact that I am going to be going on a trip in a few weeks, and it is very likely that I will have a lot of good opportunities to take good selfies while I am on this trip.

At least, I plan on taking at least a dozen. I am not sure if I will share them all right away, but I think that it is something i will do over time. I don’t want to bombard my followers with too many of the pictures at any one point in time. I feel that could be a bad thing to do on social media.

Do You Want to Downgrade from Buggy IOS8?

Hey you think that the company that makes your phone and tablet would have it all together when it comes to an operating system upgrade. However, they make mistakes too. Otherwise, they would not have been releasing a beta version of the OS upgrade. I know they need to work out the kinks, but they are not paying me to endure hassles with something I pay a monthly fee to use. That is why after I upgraded to iOS8 I was going to downgrade ios to be able to go back to the prior version of the operating system that was on my phone.

OS upgrades can be buggy. Well, all operating systems have bugs. New ones can be a particular problem until patches fix those bugs. Continue Reading »

The Best of the Best

When you are choosing between cable and satellite tv there are many things to keep in mind and consider so that you can know what is right for you. First of all, the price is always strange when it comes to these. While satellite tv might initially seem cheaper, over the long term it ends up being almost the same as cable tv. I know that it might go against everything that they want you to believe, but when it comes down to it after the first year the satellite tv price usually goes through the roof and takes away all of the value that you saved the first year. The bad thing is that it is usually a contract as well, so you can’t just cancel after the first year and expect everything to be ok. Other than that, there are a few other things to keep in mind, but I think the contract is the most important. Continue Reading »

Always Keep an Eye on Your Drink

I remember when I went to college, my older sister told me that she wanted to make sure that I was going to be going out safely, as she knew that I had a fake id and there was nothing that she was going to say to me that was going to keep me from going out to the bars. I thought that I knew everything until she told me that I had to always keep an eye on my drink. She had a friend who had cup fillers and when I asked what that was she told me that when she was in college her friend had a guy buy her a drink but she did not see him get it poured at the bar and there was something in it that made her pass out. She had no idea what happened or what was put in her cup and that was a real problem for her.

I did not want that to happen to me so when I had a guy come up to me and ask me if he could buy me a drink I would tell him yes but that I would want to go to the bar with him so that I could order what I wanted. This was a good cover to make sure that the drink was always in my sight and that I was not going to be able to have anybody take a chance by spiking it with something that was not supposed to be in there. I wanted to make sure that there was a person that would be able to watch me go to my car at night so I would always have the police man or the bouncer on the door watch me or take me to my car.

Home Insurance Comes in Handy

home insurance is an important part of every home. You never know when any kind of disaster can happen, so it’s good to be prepared just in case. I had an accident of my own that threatened to destroy by life, but home insurance came to the rescue. One year ago, a devastating fire happened in my home. It was started by some wiring in my home, and it spread quickly throughout most of the house. I was able to get out with my dog, but the home was badly damaged.

Luckily for me, I had home insurance, and fire damage was covered by the insurance. Because of this, I was able to get my home repaired and have the items in the home replaced. Continue Reading »

The Luxury of Individual Freedom

Texas is one of those states that has been blessed in a lot of ways. One of those ways is the fact that they have more energy providers than you could ever possibly want or need. When I came down to the Lone Star state a year or so back, I knew that I was going to be moving to a state that was unlike any other state that I had been to. I’ve lived all over the East Coast but never have I moved so far south or to a state with a reputation like Texas has. I was excited!

It only got better when I finally was able to move in and get my apartment set up. Continue Reading »

Best Tree Services for Long Island Area

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.

ADT Security Systems in Sparta

I have decided that it is not a good idea to live in a house that does not have a security system, and it seems like it just invites trouble. I have wanted to get one in the past, but my wife has talked me out of it. It seems like generally, the husband would be the one to do that, because of some macho belief about his ability to protect his family. I don’t know, but I want to look into sparta adt security systems and how much they typically cost to have installed.

I want to get a pretty nice system, so that I will feel confident in the level of protection that it affords for my family. I know that the crime rate is going up in this area. Continue Reading »

Working on a Home Theater Computer

I have started working on a home theater computer. The idea is not original. You can go on the Internet and find a lot of communities of people who talk about how to use them. In fact it is supposed to work in a way that is like the Digital Video Recorder you can rent from the Cable TV company in your area. It is not that simple to do though. To start with you need a menu, the thing that shows you what shows are coming on over the next week or so. You can be sure that the cable company is not going to help you with that little aspect.

Great Choices with Texas Energy Companies

Recent Photos The Commons Galleries World Map App Garden Camera Finder ...There are so many options when you are looking to pick from the Texas energy companies that are out there. Now I want you to know that is a good thing. Can you imagine going to the grocery store, and there was only one kind of ketchup or one kind of toilet paper? How about a trip to the car lot to find there is only one manufacturer and one model for every person? How would things get delivered if there were no trucks, and how would families afford it if all there was available were trucks? You see why choice is a good thing? It helps you fit the products you get to your own personal needs and circumstances.

I wanted a fixed rate. I did not want to risk paying more at any time throughout the year. I also wanted the per kilowatt hour to be as low as possible. Continue Reading »

Making the Most of the Internet

When I was looking online for different sites to find coupons on, I was over whelmed by the amount of sites that told me they had coupons that would save me money for the specific store that I wanted to go shopping in. The problem was, there were so many different codes for online shopping that some of them were expired and some of them were not. I could not figure out which codes were no longer still in use and which ones expired. I had to go to www.directselecttv.com to find out which coupon codes on cable were good and which ones had expired to see if I could save any money when I was ordering my new cable service.

I Am Getting Positive Feedback on My Songs

When I first started posting my songs on Reverbnation, I knew that I was just a small ripple in a huge ocean. I didn’t delude myself into thinking that I was anything special until I started listening to some of the other songs there. See, I love music. I can listen to it 24 hours a day, seven days a week if it was possible. That means that I listened to literally thousands of songs in my first few months of being a member on Reverbnation. What that taught me was that I needed to buy Reverbnation plays so my own songs would move up in the ratings.

I knew that if I could get more fans and plays, I would actually get more people to listen to what I was putting on there. The only way to do that though was either wait patiently and hope that it takes months rather than years, or take a shortcut like I did when I found a site that sells plays and fans.

It’s Great to Not Have Dial Up

When I moved to New York, I was pretty excited. It was my first time out on my own since graduating from college, and I was more than prepared to tackle my new job and my new home. While I was in school, I had unlimited Internet access, but it was different at my parent's house. They live in the boonies, so the only thing they have is a dial up connection. I was pretty excited about rejoining modern times as far as technology goes, which is how I ended up at cheapdslinternetserviceproviders.com/cheap-internet/new-york/.

I wanted to get the best deal possible, and I realized that it was not going to be with the local cable company. I have nothing against cable Internet, but I did balk at their prices after I inquired about them. I have a great job, but I am still starting out, and I have a lot of student loans to pay off too. I knew that I was going to have to find an alternative, and that is how I found about the DSL website that my new neighbor recommended to me. She told me that she has DSL through them, and she has never had a problem since getting it nearly three years ago.

I was able to find out a lot of details on the website, and I knew that it was the answer for my Internet needs. What I liked about this option too is that I was able to handle the installation on my own. I was not looking forward to taking a half day off from work since I had to start the day after I moved in. All I had to do was connect the modem and a splitter to my computer, and it was up and running after that. It's great having a permanent connection again, especially at such low rates.

Website Helped Me Find out That Fiber Optic Internet Was Available Where We Live

I added them up and found that we had a computer, printer and satellite TV receiver all hardwired into our Internet router, and we also had two game consoles, four tablets, three laptops, four cell phones and three wireless security cameras connecting wirelessly to the same router. That is 19 different devices all trying to share the bandwidth of our broadband Internet. We were experiencing some Internet slowdowns, so I discovered internetproviders.us is a great resource to help find the best high speed Internet option for our home.

The last time I checked, we were not in an area served by fiber optic Internet service. We had cable, DSL and satellite as options. I wanted to have the real fiber optic service where you actually get tied into a fiber optic line at your house. Some so-called fiber optic service actually terminates close to where you live, but the last bit of distance to your computer is over copper cables. This is not true fiber optic service.

The internetproviders.us website helped me in discovering that real fiber optic service was now available in my area. I was able to get it installed at our house quickly. The speed increase was phenomenal, and the slowdowns became a thing of the past. We got the top tier service that is the fastest. We can essentially have every device accessing the Internet at the same time with no more slowdowns!

Without me checking out the internetproviders.us website, I would have still not known that the ultrafast fiber optic Internet service is available in our hometown. With our bandwidth hungry family, this service is the best fit for us. We would have switched a long time ago had we known it was available. I saw the ads on TV, but I thought it was for areas closer to the city.

We Used a Local Company for All Our Photo Needs

I run a real estate office, and we recently decided to upgrade our website. We had photos of each of our agents up on the website, but many of the agents have left and new ones have signed on, so the photos were not current. The person re-doing our website told us that we should look around at a company called Cricket Designs so that everyone could get their photos done in time for them to be up on the website. My assistant was put in charge of doing this, and she gave me quite a few options to choose from after she did most of the research to find a business who could do a good job.

Because it is very common for agents to leave and new ones to begin working for us, I was a bit worried about what the cost may be to have a new agent have their photo taken. Typically, agents pay for this themselves at many businesses, but we offered to pay for it for each of the people who work for us. The company that we chose to work with gave us a really great price quote since we would be bringing them continuous repeat business.

It turns out that this same company also does wedding photography. So, when I got married this year, they are the people I chose to help me out with my big day. We spent several hours traveling to my favorite spots and my fiance' s favorite spots around town to get hundreds of shots. We both feel that the photographers really captured our personalities well. The photos are absolutely beautiful, and we have had many family members asks us if they can have copies of their favorite shots from our wedding portfolio. We are having a child soon and will use these same photographers.
