I Just Got Back from New Jersey

July 3rd, 2021

Of course I have a summer job in New Jersey working for a pretty nice Italian restaurant, a place out in the country surrounded by farm land. I started out washing dishes for them when I was in high school, in fact before they should have let me work the sort of hours that I did. The boss would pay you half in cash and half on your checks, so the hours I was working when I should have been getting my sleep were off the books. At any rate Jim is doing sewer cleaning in NJ this summer. I never expected that he would make it through the summer, but he managed to do it and said that it was not really that bad because you spend a lot of time leaning on shovels and sitting in trucks going from one place to the next. Apparently they have the heavy machinery and tools to make it a lot less nasty than you would think.

He is not really sure if he is going to make it to college next year, right now he is obsessed with this Mitsubishi that he bought and is trying to get fixed up. The engine is fine and it seems pretty obvious that the thing is way too fast to be safe in the hands of a guy like Jim. Now the rest of the car is a mess and I am not sure the previous owner did not come very close to totaling the thing when he hit that telephone pole. Apparently that guy is serving time in state prison for the incident, Jim says that about a dozen cops were behind him when he wrecked the thing and they were chasing him because him and some other guy were street racing. That is a good way to end up in trouble.


I Found a Nice House in Queens

March 4th, 2018

The location is less than ideal for me, but the price is right. I actually knew the guy who was selling the place and I ran into him one day when I was back in the old neighborhood to see my mother. It was a windy day and when I went past his old house he was there talking to a guy from a Queens tree service, there was an old tree that had gone bad on him and he had to have it taken down before he could show it to other people. I stopped and stared at him, not really recognizing him at first. In fact the last time I saw him was right before both of us went off to college about twenty six years ago.

My Daughter Likes How She Looks Now

February 27th, 2017

When my daughter came to me about best breast enlargement pills, my heart broke for her. She was 23 years old at the time, and I knew exactly what she was feeling because she inherited her body type from me. The women on her father’s side were all blessed with large breasts, so I was really hoping she would take after them as she got older. As luck would have it, she took after me. I have always had small breasts too, and it used to bother me a good bit. As I get older though, I like who I am.

I knew that it would take my daughter decades to get to the same point, if she took after me that way too. Read the rest of this entry »


Great Place to Get the Needed Software

January 13th, 2015

Looking for the best scanning software is not as easy as you might think. I guess I should explain, see I have an older printer that has scanning software but it wasn’t working on Facebook and Instagram. These are two places I wanted to start to upload all of my pictures of my new life. I had just graduated from college and got my first job and moved into my first apartment and wanted to share my new life with my family and friends. I went online and starting searching. I did a Google search for software and found download.cnet.com/scanspeeder/3000-12511_4-75446103.html .

I know some people would find it a little silly for me to want to share my life with so many people. But I keep my friend list pretty tight, so I am basically just showing these photos to family and close friends. Thanks to Facebook I have been able to reconnect with family and friends that I have lost contact with over the years. That is the best thing about Facebook, being able to find out about how your family and friends are quicker than ever before.

But since my old printer was not really cooperating with me I was going to need new software. I know I could have just bought a new printer, but after just getting my new job after college I was trying to save all the money I could. I looked at a few websites, but everything I downloaded didn’t seem to work for my printer. I was about to give up, when I found your website. I downloaded the software not really expecting it to work, but to my surprise it worked perfect. Now I am able to use my printer not just to print the occasional confirmation letter, but I can use the scanner to scan all of my photos of my new life.


Battle with the Bed Bugs

September 6th, 2015

Years ago, bed bugs were all over the air waves. Every time you turn on the news, there was a report about a bed bug infestation. I though there was n chance that my home would ever get bed bugs, but I was mistaken. One random day, I noticed a bed bug crawling on my bed. Those tiny devils had made their way into my home somehow, and I was laying with them. I immediately called bed bug control in NYC and hoped and prayed that I wouldn’t have to get rid of all of my belongings or move to a new home.

The pest control workers determined that I didn’t have to move permanently, nor did I have to get rid of my belongings, but I did have to stay away from my home for a couple of days while the bugs died. I also had to thoroughly clean all of my clothes and put plastic bags over everything to suffocate any remaining bugs that may have tried to hide from the pesticides. It takes a lot of work to make sure that bed bugs are completely gone. Any misstep in the eradication procedure could cause the bed bugs to reproduce, and I would be back at square one all over again.

During my stay in the hotel, I caught up on some reading. There was one science fiction book that I was reading where the people in a town were acting strangely, and it turns out that their minds had been taken over by parasitic bugs. That was the last thing that I wanted to read after my incident with the bed bugs. I switched to a different book about a crime boss. I haven’t seen any bed bugs since the pest control people sprayed my home, and I’ve taken care to make sure that more can’t get in on any stray fibers.


The Irony of Storm Damage

September 16th, 2016

When Hurricane Sandy came through a few years ago and barely did any damage to our house or yard, I felt very fortunate. When a small storm came through last year and lightning struck one of our trees, I still felt fortunate since no one got hurt, but I did see the irony in it too. A storm that causes major damage in the billions does little to us, and a small storm that most people were probably unaware of had us calling a company that does tree removal in Nassau County after the storm was over.

I explained to the person who answered the phone that lightning had struck one of our trees, and that it had split down the middle. Part of the tree was still standing, and the other half was laying on the ground. I was really worried that someone was going to get hurt on it because a lot of kids use our yard as a short cut to get to different places, and I was worried that the tree might prove to be a temptation particularly to the boys.

Being a Parent Always Comes First in Our Family

May 9th, 2018

As a woman who is single, an executive and I have three daughters, my life gets incredibly hectic. When you’re a mom, you have to take some time to slow down and pay attention to what your kids are doing, though. I was worried about what my middle daughter was up to with her favorite phone app, and I learned from an online search that you can hack Snapchat so that you can get a better grasp on what your kids are doing with that program. I was just looking for some advice online on how to possibly check her phone personally, but instead, I learned that you can actually see what a user is doing on that app from your own phone.

I do have a nanny to help out when I can’t be home. When I am home, I make sure to be present with my children. Read the rest of this entry »


They Built a Beautiful Fire Pit

February 24th, 2018

Finding a company that does masonry in Nassau County NY was just the first step my wife and I took in installing a beautiful outdoor fire pit. We had a temporary one set up out there over the last few years and didn’t care for it. For one thing, a stiff wind seemed to knock the thing over on more than one occasion and that was a scary concern because it could start the house on fire if someone wasn’t out there watching it. We wanted something more permanent that would be much safer and also much prettier.

We also wanted to install a paved patio out there with the fire pit built into it. Read the rest of this entry »


A Flyer Saved My Business

August 18th, 2017

I own a new pizza parlor in town. I thought that the customers would be rushing in every day when I first opened for a few reasons. The main one is because the pizza is the best in the area. I let customers create what kind of crust, sauce and toppings they want, so they are getting exactly what they want. I guess my advertising was not great though, but that changed when I tried a company that does Singapore door to door flyer distribution. Not only did this company print my flyers but they distributed them door to door too.

I knew I had to design the flyers so they would attract the customer’s attention as soon as it was handed to them. That is why I made a big coupon on it so people could see that if they presented the flyer to me at my shop, they would get either 50 percent off of one pizza or two free appetizers with the purchase of two pizzas.

Beautiful Stones at a Great Price

August 14th, 2017

When my grandfather passed on recently, we looked for Jewish headstones in NJ right from the start. If you’re not Jewish, you might not understand why finding a headstone is so important. For those of us who stay true to the Jewish tradition, it’s absolutely imperative that the dead be buried as quickly as possible. In fact, it’s best to do it before sunset. That’s not always possible in this day and age, but we thought we could pull it off since it was clear that my grandfather was seriously ailing and likely wouldn’t live much longer. We were correct.

Still, my mother did the whole Jewish mother thing and kvetched about how everything had to be right and she questioned everything. While the clock ticked, my mother kept up with her schtick. My father finally intervened and took charge of the whole affair. Read the rest of this entry »


A Lawyer’s Help Got Him Back on Track

August 14th, 2017

My husband used to be pretty wild. He was not the kind of wild that people avoided. He was the fun kind, where everyone wanted to be around him because it was just a really good time. We met at a party, and just instantly clicked. I was not sure if we were going to make it at first though because he was arrested not long after we started exclusively dating. We knew that we needed to find a DWI lawyer in Albany NY because he had gotten busted for drinking and driving for the second time in a few years.

The main thing he was worried about was losing his license for up to a year. He would end up losing his job if that happened, and that would just spiral him downward. Read the rest of this entry »


Our Kid is Better Than We Could Have Hoped for

July 17th, 2017

I know that my daughter is being good and focusing on her school work because she does not spend all that much time being obsessed with online apps like so many othre kids are. I learned this by checking up on her with a Snapchat spy program that I downloaded. I noticed that a lot of other people her age spend a lot of time on their cell phones. My daughter does use hers to some extent, but she was more interested in talking to her friends in person instead of staring into a phone all the time. But I wanted to be sure, and that is why I got the app.

It turns out that my daughter has a lot of self control. I found messages from her to her friends telling them that she could not do this or that because she needed to help me or her father at home. Read the rest of this entry »


The Company’s Bottom Line Has Improved

April 18th, 2017

When I first heard that my boss wanted to have several of us take a Verkooptraining class on sales, I was not really sure what to think about it. I fully support whatever he wants to do to improve business, but I just was not sure that this was going to be as successful as he thought it would be. The main reason was because the course is just a few days long. I know people who have gone to university to learn about sales strategies, and they had to learn a lot more than three days worth of things!

Anyway, I decided to give it a go, because as I said, I do support him. What I found out was he is the boss for a reason. I knew he had researched this training company out, but I still thought I knew better. It turns out that I learned a lot from this class, and my own sales records have skyrocketed since I started implementing the sales strategies and other things that I learned while taking the training class with a few other colleagues.

Getting Songs from an Online Site

March 2nd, 2017

Music is such an important part of my life. I grew up listening to it at home with my parents, who are huge music fans. They love all kinds of genres, which I also appreciate. I don’t like being boxed into one genre for anything, whether it is music, TV, friends or anything else. When my parents were younger, they had to go out and buy the music they wanted or call radio stations with song requests. I am so glad that I don’t have to do that thanks to websites like oMP3x where I can download all the music that I want.

My folks told me that when they were my age, they had to go to the record stores to buy albums or cassette tapes. I can’t even imagine that, especially with the prices that they told me they paid. Read the rest of this entry »


The Best Area of Town to Live in Has an Affordable Price

January 29th, 2017

There are a lot of new west midtown Atlanta apartments that have been cropping up in the past few years. For many years, I felt that midtown in the city would be a great place for people to be able to live so that they can remain close to the rest of the city and downtown at the same time. There’s a lot of traffic in our city, and many of us have long needed an area of the city to live that would help make commuting time much shorter. This is actually something that is becoming more popular in many large urban areas.

A person might think that it’s not that big of a deal to move to a major metropolitan city. And it really isn’t a big deal to mot poeple, but it was for my wife and because who came from a much smaller town. But this is only because of how much time we were spending on the road daily. Where I live before, it would only take me about 15 minutes even though our city. Read the rest of this entry »


Having a Little Fun at a Site Where You Can Print Fake Check Stubs

January 5th, 2017

I have had a lot of fun goofing with my friends over the years, especially the nosy ones. You know them because you have friends like them too. They are the ones you know are looking in your medicine cabinet in the bathroom, and they would listen to your voicemail if they had your password. It is okay to have a nosy friend, but you have to keep them on their toes. If they like to gossip, then my little prank is even better. I found a place online that does fake check stubs that look just like the real thing. I do photography and onsulting work, but it just pays the bills. It does not allow for any real extravagance. However, my nosy friends, there are two, really are interested in how much I make.

I had a party at my place last week. I have an office in my apartment, and I left some files conveniently out on my desk. It is almost tax time, so the fake check stubs looked perfectly natural on my desk. I printed a bunch of ones from different companies they could look up. Read the rest of this entry »


Talking to a Real Psychic

October 25th, 2016

When I was a kid, there was a woman who came on television who gave psychic readings through the phone. She would encourage people to call her as fast as possible to find out what lies in their future. I wanted to call, but my parents wouldn’t let me because they didn’t want to pay for the phone charge. I a promise to myself that I would get physic phone readings when I became older. Now that I have my own job, I can afford to pay for a reading from a psychic. Unfortunately, the woman who gave the readings when I was a kid no longer gives them, so I had to find someone else to do it.

I found another promising psychic after a little searching. Other people seemed to really like the readings that the psychic was giving out. Many of them had been skeptics of the whole psychic reading phenomenon, but once they got their readings, they became believers. Read the rest of this entry »
