I Wish I Could Afford This Place

It was not as though I wanted to find a place that was so far over my budget, but of course I was distracted by the fact that the place has such a great pool. It is enormous, or at least the patio around it is. There is a big screen TV out there and the wi fi connection worked good when I tried it. I started out by searching the web for Atlantic Station Atlanta apartments and I found the web page. I knew right off that it was going to cost more than I wanted to pay, but the location was pretty much exactly what I was hoping to find. It is strange to look at the web page however, because there seems to be a lot of random photos. Continue reading I Wish I Could Afford This Place

Most Luxurious Place I’ve Ever Lived

I decided to seek out South Charlotte NC apartments after my wife passed away. We owned a very nice and luxurious six figure home, but it felt so empty without her presence. Our kids are long gone, having grown up years ago and moved on to their own lives, and that meant I spent a lot of time moping around this huge home wondering what I was going to do with my life. Since I retired several years ago, I didn’t have a career in which I could pour my grief. I spent about a year here before deciding to move on.

As I prepared to sell the house, I also had to spend a lot of time looking for a new living space. Continue reading Most Luxurious Place I’ve Ever Lived

The Day My Wife Gave Me the Ultimatum to Go See a Chiropractor in Peoria or else

I have never felt right in my back since the time I was goofing around as a teenager trying to show how strong I was. I was attempting to lift the wheel of a small car off the ground so my “friends” would spread the word that I lifted a car. Well, that has been many years ago, and those “friends” are no longer part of my life, but the back pain still was. I have had times where I felt like I could barely move. My wife finally convinced me to see a chiropractor in Peoria. I would never go before because I had strong, but unfounded, opinions of chiropractic medicine. I was one of those guys who thought he knew it all. Continue reading The Day My Wife Gave Me the Ultimatum to Go See a Chiropractor in Peoria or else

Slipped in a Parking Lot

I was not really paying attention to where I was going, but I got a full grasp of the situation when I suddenly went backwards into the parking lot. It hurt a great deal. I had no clue what had happened, but immediately there was a guy standing over me. He worked for the grocery store and he had a bottle of detergent in his hand. I rubbed my pants because they were wet and I realized that it smelled like cooking oil. The manager was scared that I would sue them, but they paid for the Redding chiropractor and that was good enough for me. At first I was not too worried about it though. Continue reading Slipped in a Parking Lot

I Had to Get My Back Fixed Today

I was not really expecting what happened. I was going out in the parking lot and I was looking for my keys. All of a sudden I heard some sirens and then this guy almost run me over on one of those Japanese motorcycles. The cops had lost him, but they eventually found me. I had dove out of the way and hurt my back on the asphalt. It did not seem too bad at first, but I had to eventually go to see a chiropractor in Beverly Hills. Continue reading I Had to Get My Back Fixed Today

This is Definitely the Right Move for Us

I wanted to get a dog for my daughter, so I talked to my landlord to see if he would be okay with it. He was adamant that we would not be allowed to have a pet of any kind, but I had already started talking to my daughter about it. I was not going to disappoint her, so I just started looking at apartments near North Charleston SC that do allow pets. The apartment that we had been living in was okay, but there was nothing special about it.

When my daughter and I saw all the apartment complexes that allow pets, we started to get really excited because they are all so much nicer than what we had been living in. Our old apartment had a certain charm about it because of how old it is, but it also had a lot of issues because of its age. Continue reading This is Definitely the Right Move for Us

Rodgers Forge Gave Me My Family

I wanted to move, but I honestly didn’t think I would find anything much better than what I had. I have since learned that I should never discount anything before investigating, because it turns out that there was a lot of things out there that are better than my former apartment. I got a special ad in my email that said to click here, and it had some local apartment listings on it. I had to smile when I got to Rodgers Forge because I saw where they not only allow pets but they also have a fenced in dog park where they can play.

I had never had a dog before, but that was only because I had never lived at a place that would allow me to have one. That really was the only deciding factor once I saw that I would be able to afford to live there. Continue reading Rodgers Forge Gave Me My Family

The Pad on Harvard Has Stupendous Studio Apartments

My cousin says he is going to be a bachelor at least for the next 10 years. I explained that love does not work that way. He said, “When ya ain’t lookin’, ya won’t find it.” I explained to him again that love does not work that way. Anyway, our conversation started because he was looking for a studio apartment in the midtown Atlanta area. He did not want to be far from his new job. He is a southern boy, but he can turn the accent on and off like a switch. I sent him the www.padonharvard.com link for him to check out. By far The Pad has the coolest studio apartment spaces I have seen. They actually have a separate bedroom area unlike some of the cramped spaces we both have lived in when we first started our career trajectories.

I have been about marriage, a house and a family. My wife and I have a nice small home in the suburbs of Atlanta, and I do not mind the commute to my job. My cousin wants to be close to where he works to be ready for a quick response when he is on call. He is in the field of medicine, and I can barely talk about his work with him. Continue reading The Pad on Harvard Has Stupendous Studio Apartments

A House We Can Call Home

When I decided to start looking for a new house, I knew what that really meant was that I had to start looking at Palo Alto real estate agents to find the one who would be able to find me the perfect home. I knew what I wanted, but I did not have the time nor desire to look at a bunch of houses that I would probably reject. I would rather have someone look at the different houses that fit my criteria and put a list together for me so I could just look at all of them at once. Continue reading A House We Can Call Home

SEO is Important for Websites

When you have a website, you naturally want people to visit it. Whether it is for entertainment, information or to purchase goods, the only way someone will see it is either by word of mouth or good search engine optimization. Word of mouth is great, but it can only get you so far. To reach farther than what word of mouth can, you really need to understand how to optimize your website so it remains relevant on search engine results pages. That is why I started looking into the best SEO software that is available.

I have a website, and I want more people to come and visit it. Continue reading SEO is Important for Websites

I Wanted My IPhone Unlocked

I wanted to get my iPhone unlocked, but I had no idea how to do that. I have heard of other people going online to find out the way to unlock their own phones, so I decided to do the same. The only concern with me was I really have no idea what I am doing when it comes to technical things. One of my kids always took care of these things, but they have all moved away. I figured I could perhaps handle it though, so I went online and did a search for phone carrier free unlock to see what results I would get.

I am really happy to say that I found a site that is just perfect for what I needed. I do have an older model phone, so I was concerned that it might just be too old for this. Continue reading I Wanted My IPhone Unlocked

Spent a Couple Weeks in Portugal

Of course I am not really sure where I am part of the time, but I have been able to get along pretty well. Portugal is a beautiful country and I have met a lot of great people while backpacking through it. Mostly I have been staying in hostels and campgrounds. There are all sorts of beautiful beaches and today I rented a surf board and hit the waves. I met this girl and spent the evening with her, she tried to teach me about Baixar Musica, which is some sort of Portuguese music download site. Obviously my grasp of her native language is tenuous at best, but her English is pretty good. I can understand her and she eventually gets what I am saying, however mostly we are both interested in music. When I met her I was playing a guitar on the beach, trying to learn this song from another guitar player. Continue reading Spent a Couple Weeks in Portugal

Going to Look for a New Job

I have been trying to find a better job lately, one which is both better paying and which is less of an ordeal. The big problem with this job is that it is not in a good location for the rest of my life. Of course when I look at my paycheck stub that does not make me feel better about it. If I was making a good bit more money, then the hassle of getting to and from the office would bother me a lot less. As it is I am getting up at twenty past six in the morning. Continue reading Going to Look for a New Job

Great Dishes Made with Okra

After learning about the health benefits of okra, I’ve gone from simply eating the vegetable as a side dish during Sunday dinner, to eating it almost every day. Much like many other vegetables, I knew that okra was good for me, but I never realized just how good. The vegetable is packed with vitamins that can do things like fight off diseases and lower cholesterol. I’m not a fan of eating okra raw, so I had to come up with new and creative ways to prepare the okra that don’t simply involve boiling them in a pot like I would do on Sunday.

I experimented with some low fat meals by sauteing some sliced okra in a pan with some tofu an rice. It was an attempt to create an Asian style dish, and it turned out pretty well. I had an idea that I borrowed from another recipe. When I cook on the grill, I usually put a few stalks of asparagus on there with a bit of salt and lemon juice for flavor. I did the same thing with the okra and it tasted phenomenal. Continue reading Great Dishes Made with Okra

Setting Up a Saltwater Aquarium is a Neat Learning Experience

Setting up a saltwater aquarium is a lot of work. If you do not get the water correct, you can lose the fish you buy. And if you know the prices of saltwater animals, you know that can be a whole lot of money really fast. The nice thing about setting up a saltwater aquarium is that you can add living creatures such as urchins and corals. I was looking for corals for sale online to surprise my wife. We were going to add them to our tank as soon as we could afford them. We have been able to maintain a saltwater aquarium water balance for three weeks in our new tank. We were really itching to add some aquatic species.

Saltwater aquariums are beautiful. However, they are a lot of work. Continue reading Setting Up a Saltwater Aquarium is a Neat Learning Experience

Burning Fat and Gaining Muscle for an Entire Year So Far

I have been working out now for about a year. I never thought I would get through to the second week. It helps to have a workout buddy. My wife and I started lifting weights three times per week. Our cardio was fast walking and riding bicycles. Back when we first got started exercising, we did no resistance training. Our main resistance training is a gym machine we have at home. Over the months we have looked into everything from changing our diet to asking how do thermogenics work. I figured there had to be a way to get my body into a fat burning mode. My wife looked up how females should do it too.

We were shedding the fat pounds and gaining muscle. I remember one week we had a zero loss or gain on the scales, but we both lost fat and gained muscle. For a couple of weeks after we actually gained weight. Continue reading Burning Fat and Gaining Muscle for an Entire Year So Far

I Needed a New Scale for Deli Meats

I own a small gas station that also has a convenience mart. I keep my prices as low as possible, plus my staff is very friendly and trained to put customers first. Because of this, I don’t have to worry about the national chains that are close by, because I have a steady customer base that appreciates that they are not just a number to us. When my label printing scale broke down, I knew that I had to replace it quickly because one of the things that my customers have come to count on are the great deli prices that we have.

I had an older scale that was doing the job okay enough, but I am all about efficiency, which is why I wanted a new scale that actually printed the labels as well. I went online and looked at 1800scales.com. Continue reading I Needed a New Scale for Deli Meats

Us Men and Our Much Needed Gun Accessories

My wife said that me buying a gun is like her buying a new outfit. She said I cannot be happy with just having the gun. No, I have to buy a bunch of gun accessories to go with it. She said it is like when she gets a new dress for work or our date nights. She needs the accessories of shoes, jewelry and a handbag to match. I get it. Us guys are no different. We just have different things that we choose for getting accessories for. I do admit that if I get a pistol, I need to get a holster to fit it and often a set of custom grips. I like the rubberized grips for revolvers, and the deep checkering of specialized grips for shooting pistols. Continue reading Us Men and Our Much Needed Gun Accessories

Best Way to Find 3some Partner

I guess this might sound kind of weird, and I suppose in a certain sense, it is kind of weird. But I am trying to figure out the best way to find a partner for a threesome. Not two partners for a threesome, but rather just a single female that is willing to join in with me and my girlfriend for a night of fun. We have always been kind of sexually adventurous but this is probably the wildest thing we’ve thought about doing. I am posting a looking for 3some advertisement on this one site, but I am not sure if it will draw much attention or if I will get anyone to respond to it.

There has to be a somewhat easy to way to get the message out to potentially interested people that you are looking to have a threesome. It is not like we want to go to a swinger party and meet someone there, because we’re not swingers and have no experience in this type of thing. Not that we rule out the possibility of becoming a swinger one day, but that’s not where we are at right now. Instead, we’re looking for maybe someone who has never had a threesome before, so that we don’t feel awkward in the situation.

I don’t know if that would necessarily make it awkward, but the set of expectations would be different than if it was the first time for all 3 of us. I guess I am putting too much thought into this, and I do not want to burden the process with a lot of constraints, because if that becomes the case, then it is doubtful we will ever find anyone to join us. And that would be a shame because I think this is something we really want to try.

What You Need to Know About Annual Cutters

Annular cutters or core drills as they are more popularly known are a different variation of hole saw that are much more efficient at making holes because they cut faster with more accuracy, especially when the cutter breaks through the wood. These cutters use an annular groove instead of a twisted groove. The annular cutter cuts the hole smoothly leaving a solid core at the center and is quite adept on wood, ferrous and non-ferrous metals as well as laminates and other man made materials. The reason they are more often called core drills is the fact that they cut along the edge of the hole leaving a perfect core to fall out when the cutting is done.

The first core drills were invented and patented in the early 1970’s by Dough Hougen and later improved upon several times in the 1980’s. Continue reading What You Need to Know About Annual Cutters
