The Heat Gets More Intense

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

When the heat in NYC hits you, you can really feel it. Sometimes it’s so hot that it feels like I’m living in some tropical country near the equator. If you have a broken air conditioner or no air conditioner at all, it feels even worse. The heat smothers you and bakes you like a chicken in an oven. I felt this heat last year when my air conditioner stopped working. There was nothing I could do for it, so I got air conditioning replacement in NYC. Some cheapskates try to stick it out in the heat, but I wasn’t going to deal with that.

Since it was hot outside, I decided to do an experiment while the new air conditioner was being installed. (more…)

Getting Legal Transcription Done in a Hurry

Friday, May 20th, 2016

We had about an hour of video that needed to be transcribed before court was in session Monday morning. Our staff was gone for the weekend, and I guess was smart enough not to answer when they saw work was calling. We normally outsource transcription, but it was to an agency with regular hours. I found a new place that would have your legal documents transcribed when it was urgent in about four hours. I had to contact them. It was late and there were people ready and willing to do the work. I got them the video, and they sent back perfectly transcribed dialogue of the video that I could print out. They pride themselves on running a paperless business. Everything was handled online. It was quick and easy. (more…)

An Orange Rug for My Husband

Monday, May 16th, 2016

My husband’s favorite color is orange, so I wanted to get him an orange rug for his study. The one he had in there was brown, which was the closest he could come to the color he wanted. I thought it would be easy to get him the orange rug, but my task was a bit harder than I anticipated. None of the local home decor stores had the right color, so I went online to see if I could find any orange rugs for sale that were in the local area as I did not want to pay a fortune in shipping to have it delivered.

When I found The Rug Store, I knew that I had found the right store for us. The thing that really surprised me with this online store is just how many different kinds of rugs they have. (more…)

Free Games for an Expensive Phone

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

My friends always tried to convince me to get an iPhone because they all had them. The phones were way too expensive for my budget, and they would release a new model the next year that would always make the model before that instantly outdated. Finally one day, I couldn’t take any more pressure from my friends and bought the latest phone. It was well designed, and I was starting to think that it was worth every cent that I paid for it, until I saw the prices of some of the apps. Without the free iPhone applications available for download, I wouldn’t have anything to do on the phone other than make some calls, send a few texts, browse a few websites until I get bored.

I like to pack whatever device I have with as many games as possible. Doing this one game at a time can be tiresome, so I like to do it in blocks. (more…)
