Our First Apartment Together is Beautiful

I wanted to look at Stone Oak apartments when my boyfriend proposed to me. We were not going to have a long engagement at all. When I said yes, he told me that he did not want to wait a year or even months to marry me, and I agreed with him. We actually made plans that day for a small ceremony within a few weeks, which meant we did not have a lot of time to look at apartments for us to move into when we finally tied the knot.

There are some beautiful homes in Stone Oak, but I knew that it would be wise to wait a few years until we bought our first home. We both have really good jobs, and I knew that it would be possible that we could end up somewhere else if one of us got a great job offer from somewhere else. Because of that, we decided that we would get an apartment until we were both more established with our careers. I have a couple of friends who live in the Stone Oak area, and I really like everything about it.

It did not take long to find the apartment complex that we now call home. It is the Regency, and the apartments here are so luxurious. It goes well beyond the apartments too. There are so many things to do here that I am really not sure if we will look for a house even in a few years if we are still in the same area. I love the pool, and my husband really enjoys playing billiards with his friends here. We are also really close to some amazing bike trails, which is something we both enjoy doing on free weekends. It feels amazing to marry my best friend and find the house of my dreams all in the same period of time!


I Need a New Laptop

I have been needing a new computer for a long time, but of course I have not been in the position to reach in my pocket and pay for one. I just got out of school a couple of months ago and it took me a little while to find a job, which was not precisely what I was looking for. Still I need a new machine and so I am going to be looking at the Cyber Monday laptop deals 2016. Continue reading


We Needed a Good Family Counselor

When I proposed to my girlfriend, I knew that we were going to have some issues with our kids. I have three children, and she has three as well. We each have custody of our kids, so it was going to be a modern day Brady Bunch. We thought the kids would get used to one another, but the fighting continued to get even worse. I finally had enough and told all of them that we were going to get some family counseling in Frisco. I had no idea what else to do, but this turned out to be the best thing for all of us.

I had no idea which counselor to use, so I went online to get some information about the different counselors in the area. I definitely wanted a professional, but I also knew that not all professionals are created equal. This was my family we are talking about, and I wanted this to be a successful therapy session for all of us. I read some reviews about different counselors in the area, and I was impressed with one in particular. Continue reading


Games That Pay for Canadians

I really enjoy playing online casino games. I never even realized this until I found a site that has the best Canadian casinos listed on it. I was just looking for a few sites where I could play some card games and maybe some Bingo, but I am really glad that I found this site instead. Obviously I have heard of slot machines before, but I never played them since there are no real casinos around where I live. I decided to go ahead and join one of the casinos that had a high rating on this site, and the rest is history.

I did not join it without reading all of the reviews on it first. I know that not everything that is found online is legitimate, which is why I wanted to read everything in depth on this site. I looked at the top casinos on the site, and was relieved to see that I would be able to play them even though I am in Canada. Most of the game sites I was playing at prior to this were located in America, so it was nice that these ones really pay out for Canadians. Continue reading


Our Goal Was to Have More Business

When I was finally able to convince my mom to get a website for her business, I knew that I had to move quickly before she changed her mind. She is old school, and that means she is resistant to change. Even though the Internet has been around for over 30 years now, she was still doing things the old fashioned way. I knew her business needed to be transitioned though if it was going to survive, so I went online and started looking at Charlotte web design companies. Even though I am online a good bit, I know next to nothing about website design, so I wanted to leave it to the professionals. Continue reading


Renovating a Commercial Building into Apartments

My wife and I bought a commercial building and transformed it into apartments. Of course, we have the loft apartment. The other apartments are paying for our purchase and renovation of the property. It was not cheap, but nothing in New York City is. I remember us paying more for a studio apartment in Manhattan than what my parents pay for a mortgage on a farm with a house, barn and other buildings in upstate New York. We did good with our HVAC contracts in NYC to make our building compliant with the codes for residential living. These guys are geniuses. Continue reading


I Needed to Order USB Flash Drives

I wanted to get some promotional USB flash drives, but I was not sure where to get them as I had never ordered anything like this before. I wanted to get the best price possible because I knew that I would need to order a huge quantity of them. I compared a few different companies, and I finally decided to order metal USB flash drives from the first one I looked at. I was impressed with their variety of flash drives from the start, but I wanted to see if other companies had prices that were comparative.

Two things I noticed is that the company I went with my for USB flash drive purchase was definitely the best priced of all the ones that I had looked at. Continue reading


My New Girlfriend is a Bit Strange

Of course I do not mean that in a bad way, at least not so far. It has been pretty much a matter of sexual exploration. In fact I sort of wonder if she is more interested in girls than she is in men. It started the other day when she showed me this web page that called itself a threesome finder. Of course she correctly guessed that of the two options for something of this sort, only one of them held any interest to me. I am not overly jealous of other men, but I have absolutely no urge to get in bed with one. That just is not something I have any desire to do or even to think about. It is not something that I have ever even considered for a single moment. I certainly would not do it. Continue reading


How Hard is It to Do Without Cable?

I have been thinking about different things that I could do to cut my monthly expenses. It always seems to come back to the question of paying for TV, of course you can save money by switching to one of the satellite services. However I am thinking that perhaps I could just do without the paid TV services. I have been sitting here wondering how hard is it to do without cable? Obviously I want to keep the Internet, because I need it and I have the more expensive Netflix USA account, or at least I have access to it. My best friend has an account and he lets me share it with him, which is allowed in the terms of the type of account that he has. Continue reading


Texas Should Lead the Green Wave

Ironically, at the heart of the massive corrections in the global financial markets, record unemployment and a growing sense of uncertainty as to the future of humankind due to climate change, exists a stunning array of possibility, so awesome in scope as to dwarf all previous eras of economic activity. This great site can give you information about the energy companies here in the Lone Star state. Perhaps the Chinese symbol that suggest there is the seed of opportunity inherent in every crisis as a means of understanding our current situation. Continue reading


Ensuring the Safety of My Home

Checking out the ADT prices recently after a string of burglaries in my neighborhood has inspired me to take the steps and ensure that my home is actually going to be more secure. I admit that I have been sleeping with nothing but some locks on the doors and the windows, living for the past couple of years since buying the home with no concern for anything like a robbery. I had no idea that something like that would happen in our neighborhood by after the sixth house being broke into, I realize that nobody where a person lives they can be vulnerable.

Beautiful Apartments Located in Tampa Bay Area

I need to find a new apartment, and the sooner that I am able to do so, the sooner I will be able to move out of the place that I am currently staying. I am not paying rent, in the normal sense of the word, at the moment. Rather, I am staying with a friend in an arrangement where, I get to stay here as long as I agree to cook for him. But it is time for me to move on, and I have been looking into info for the sanctuaray at highland oaks apartments to see if it is going to be a good place for me to live in the future.

Started Thinking About the Renovation Project

We got the house some time ago, but as the thing was in need of this and that. It was hardly about to fall down, but it needs to have the kitchen redone badly and we are thinking about the bathroom. Peg found some really unusual shower doors in Union County NJ. I think they are called a European something and she really loves them. We have not got the money in the budget for that just yet though. I was thinking about something else to tell the truth. Of course you can spend as much money as you want on a bathroom. Continue reading


Finding the Best Texas Power Options

The bottom line is that most people rely on some form of energy in their homes, and the most convenient way to get it these days is through electricity. Of course nothing is free anymore, especially things that are so important, and we pay an extra amount in order to keep the convenience of this service. Still though, despite the prices, many people ignore this factor and continue to pay for whatever service they first found instead of looking for the best deals. Over at www.texasenergycompanies.net they offer a wide variety of plans so that you can easily compare them and find out what works best for you.

The reason there are so many great plans is that Texas electricity is deregulated and relies on the open market for customers to pick their favorite plans. This means that all of the providers must compete with each other, so they are constantly offering discounts and special features to stand out from the competition. Continue reading


Just Got to Work on the Lake House

My buddy Ike borrowed one of those little bull dozer things from his boss and the two of us went up to the lake this weekend. We left after work on friday and I took a john boat with a little outboard motor. It is not much of a boat, but you can lift it up and put in the back of the truck, then put all the camping gear in after it. We worked a little and fished a lot, then we drank a lot of beer. I need to find the energy providers for Texas who are willing to hook the power up for me. I think that I have to work on a short term move. Continue reading


The Way We Consume Media

Comcast Cable TV is one of the leading cable providers in the country thanks to the lack of competition in many of the areas that they service. I can’t find too many reasons to complain about them as they have always been pretty fair to me. I don’t have a lot of expectations out of them but I have been finding myself hoping that they will be able to improve the current model of pricing that they have just because technology is rapidly changing the way that we consume our media and in through what methods we are doing so.

Take into consideration what Netflix has done to revolutionize streaming media by showing the country that it is totally possible for us to consume much of our media online. Continue reading


Doing the Math on This Project

Jack and I went over to Brooklyn, a couple of miles away from the bridge and looked at this old tenement building. We were thinking about it and doing the math. The place needed to be gutted and we would have to find a company that could give us a fair price on roof installation in Brooklyn NY. We were sort of in between on it, because it looked as though it was going to be a very big job to get it ready. The truth is that we prefer it when we have a much simpler path to the end of the rainbow. It is nice when you find a project and you think, that unless something goes off course this should be pretty easy. At least it is easy if you know what you are doing. There are a couple of problems with this place that I am not liking too much. The rats were the big thing.

We could not see the rats, but we could see where they had been chewing on stuff. Continue reading


Started My New Job This Week

I got this tip on the opening here from a friend of mine. He works with some accountants in Bristol and his company does the books for these people. Apparently they told him that they had a job opening and he immediately thought of me. It is a very good match for my skills as I did some very similar administrative work with the Royal Marine Corps while I was in the service and recuperating from a parachute jump that went badly. I went down there on my way to work one morning. In fact I just had to get out of bed about ten minutes early. It is literally that close to where I am living. Continue reading


The Price of Losing Hair

Losing hair? Freaking out? Yeah, I bet you are. I know I was for months when I first noticed that my receding hairline became, well, less of a hairline and more of a gaping bald spot. It was a terrible moment to finally admit to myself that I was going bald and there was nothing that I could do to avoid it any longer. Or was there? Research showed that the Keratin treatment in Singapore was going to be my best. Living in the U.S meant that I was going to have to fly over in order to have the treatments done so I was looking at a pretty heavy price tag in order to improve the quality of my life.

Was it worth it? Oh, yes. Yes it was. I tried to live with my baldness at first. Continue reading


Professional Wedding Photographers for a Summer Wedding

My wife-to-be and I are going to finally get married this summer. It seems like we have been engaged forever. I have been waiting on her to finish school, before we got married. She is about to graduate with a master’s degree, and I am excited for her. I think that it will be a pretty great wedding ceremony, but there are still arrangements to be made, and we are kind of running out of time. I think I am going to hire Doerman photography to take the photographs for the wedding.

I have actually talked to a few people who have used them in the past, and they all seemed to be rather pleased with the results that they got. Further, I have looked at some of their work personally, and I thought it was rather good. Continue reading
