Upgrading to a Luxury Home in Colorado

July 10, 2017 / Comments Off on Upgrading to a Luxury Home in Colorado

Several years ago, I took a business trip to Colorado. I instantly fell in love with the place and never left. My job was kind enough to allow me to work remotely from this location, and I’ve been able to transition fairly easily. Now that I’ve been here for a while, I’m ready to upgrade my home and find something more upscale. I’ve been searching for luxury real estate in Highland Ranch CO, which is ultimately where I would like to move. One of the benefits of living here for as long as I have is that I have a better understanding of the different areas and neighborhoods. This has allowed me to have insight that nonresidents would not have. This is one of the factors that has gone into my decision to look for homes in that area.

My friend referred me to a real estate agent in the area who has been helping me throughout this process. I really feel like I would be extremely lost without her. She’s done a lot of work for me, and has a great understanding of what it is that I’m looking for. I want home with at least three bedrooms and three bathrooms. (more…)

I Am Really Working Hard at School

July 8, 2017 / Comments Off on I Am Really Working Hard at School

It is getting really tough to keep at the course I have decided upon. A lot of people start out in engineering courses without really understanding how difficult it is going to be, but that is not the case with me. I used to date a girl who is in the same program and I saw how difficult it was for her to work on the courses you need. Of course she gave me a really thorough Primavera tutorial back when I started, because I am thinking that project management is a really good thing to specialize in. (more…)

Helped Me Pick a Good Scanning Program

June 17, 2017 / Comments Off on Helped Me Pick a Good Scanning Program

Finding good scanning software can be a real pain in the you know what. I actually bought a laptop that came with a package of software related to photography, including a scanning program that was apparently top notch, but to my amazement I could never get the software to work well. Even when it did work, I would get error messages or the scan would go so slowly that it seemed to take hours to get all my images through the software. And that is a big deal for me because I am a retired professional photographer.

I still spend hours a day messing around with my cameras. I even have my own dark room in the basement that I still use from time to time when I want to produce images that are real old school. (more…)

Report Spam in Gmail Inbox

April 18, 2017 / Comments Off on Report Spam in Gmail Inbox

I have used Gmail for a long time, and for the most part, Google has done a pretty good job at catching spam, so I don’t even have to look at it in the first place. However, I have been having an issue lately and I need to figure out how to get it fixed, because there has been some consistent items of spam mailed to my account over the past few weeks. I am looking into this no-reply@accounts.google.com email address and seeing if it is the target for spam reports. I am really interested in figuring out how to let google know about my problem, but it seems pretty hard to contact them directly. (more…)

Moving Closet to Home Again

April 18, 2017 / Comments Off on Moving Closet to Home Again

I was living in California when my dream job opened up in Toledo Ohio. I was pretty excited about more than just the job too. My family is from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and moving to Toledo would mean that it would just take hours instead of days to visit them or for them to come see me. I didn’t tell anyone about it until I found out I got the job, and then I started looking at cheap apartments in Toledo Ohio. I called my parents and asked them if I should get a one or two bedroom apartment in Ohio, which was my way of telling them that I was moving back home, or close to it anyway.

I already knew that I was going to get a two bedroom, because I was hoping that not only my parents would visit more often but my brothers and sisters too. (more…)

An Energy Company That Promotes Being Green

April 18, 2017 / Comments Off on An Energy Company That Promotes Being Green

I have known ever since moving to Texas that I had the choice for which company I wanted to supply my energy. I never really appreciated that until recently though. A friend gave me a link to look at online that had a good bit of information on it about the different companies. It all started out because she told me how much one of her electric bills was. I was so surprised because I was paying a lot more than she was. I asked her what company she uses, and that is when I found out that we have different ones supplying our energy.

One of the reasons why I never looked into the different companies is because I thought that all of them were pretty much the same. I knew that each one had their own name, and serviced different areas other than where I live, but I thought everything else was the same. (more…)

Healthy Skin with Natural Oils

April 18, 2017 / Comments Off on Healthy Skin with Natural Oils

Mineral oil moisturizers, including CQ10, is definitely not recommended because they tend to clog our skin pores easily. By clogging our pores, it actually makes it hard for your skin to breathe and function properly. This can cause a buildup of toxins in your body. And one of the thing you want to avoid is this because high toxins are responsible for symptoms such as itchy hair follicles, acne outbreaks and severe skin irritations. To know whether the skin care products contain any mineral oils, just do a check on the labels. If it says “liquid paraffin”, “petrolatum” or “paraffin wax”, then it means that it contains mineral oils.

The good thing with these oils based moisturizers is that it is non greasy and does not clog your pores at all. (more…)

We Both Have Gorgeous Backyards Now

March 30, 2017 / Comments Off on We Both Have Gorgeous Backyards Now

When I went to my sister’s housewarming party, I was so happy for her. She had been wanting her own house for years, and she finally found the one that she was meant to have. I live nearly three hours away, so I did not see it until I went to her house for the weekend of the party. When I saw her backyard, I knew that I was going to find a masonry contractor in Nassau County NY when I got back home to recreate parts of it in my own backyard.

Her yard is smaller than mine, but it looked so much nicer because of how it was designed. (more…)

Just Finished Working on the Web Page

March 30, 2017 / Comments Off on Just Finished Working on the Web Page

Of course the web page is really just a tool and it does you very little good unless you can find a way to get people to come visit it. In the real trick is to get the people who are going to want to buy the stuff that you are selling. It is not any use to get people who just click on the site and then decide that they are in the wrong place. So right now we are looking for an Atlanta seo agency to help us with the marketing. If you do not know, then SEO stands for search engine optimization and it is a very big business in this day and age. (more…)

The Perfect Tent for Us

March 14, 2017 / Comments Off on The Perfect Tent for Us

My wife and I had never been camping before, but it was something that we both wanted to try. We are both adventurous, so it didn’t bother us for both of us to be newbies to the idea. We decided to just go for it one weekend, and we wrote out a list of everything that we would have to buy. The list was quite short actually, because we had most of the items already. We did need to buy a tent though. We looked at quite a few, and we finally settled on getting the Mountainsmith Morrison 2 person tent.

I know that there are tents that are a lot bigger out there, but we did not need one that is huge. We only planned on spending sleeping time inside the tent. During our waking hours, we wanted to be out and about, enjoying the campsite and meeting new friends. This tent is no slouch by any means. (more…)

People Like Gifts from the Restaurant

January 1, 2017 / Comments Off on People Like Gifts from the Restaurant

Running a restaurant in Singapore is a serious endeavor. There are so many places to eat. That’s why I looked online for corporate gifts in Singapore as a way to get an edge on my competitors. My industry is rather cutthroat and it’s easy to get run over by your competition. I thought if I could get the word out about my establishment, I might get a few more regular customers. I don’t have the budget for big radio or television advertising buys, so getting some type of trinket that I could give away, a trinket with our name and maybe our address on it, might help get our name recognized.

I wasn’t interested in pens. We buy pens by the box and people accidentally take them anyway. Plus a pen isn’t something you associate with a restaurant. I wanted something more specific. (more…)
