In 2013, my grandmother died. It was due to old age and nothing tragic, we all knew she was going to pass and it was a matter of when. After she died, we all went to Singapore (where she lived) to clean out her house and take her things back to the United States and we were going to sort through it all there. Well, when we got to the house we opened the door and my uncle looked at my mother and asked “Should we be finding cleaning services in Singapore?” We all had no idea that Grandma was a hoarder.
Our grandma loved things and had a sentimental attachment to a lot of the items she had. I would guess it made things hard for her to give away. When we saw how had she actually was at it, a cleaning service was really the only option we had. Finding a company that was willing to deal with a hoarders home was a bit more of a challenge but still was doable. We ended up going with one of the first companies we called that had no issues with hoarder homes and didn’t charge an arm and a leg to go in and clean.
The day they arrived, we just told them toss everything. Nothing was worth saving since it had all been covered in leftover food and trash for who knows how many years. Continue reading Cleaning Services Tackled a Hoarder’s Home
I was really down in the dumps because I was failing one of my classes. I am not taking too many classes at school, but the ones that I decided to take are tough ones. The one that I have had the most trouble with is physics. My professor suggested that I look into O level physics tuition. I told her that I tried meeting with a study group comprised of students who were also struggling, but the blind leading the blind did not work out well at all. I also told her that I feared I would need to drop her class, and she said that I should try some tutoring first instead of just giving up.
For so long, I had feared that I would not be able to meet the requirements to get a medical degree if I didn’t get through my physics classes. I didn’t have trouble last year, but then I didn’t have that same good luck earlier this year when it was time to try to get through the next level course. I found myself feeling anxious about it at first. I told my instructor that I worried about what the cost for getting tutoring would be like, but she said that she had recommended that a number of her students do it, and she had heard the cost was pretty low.
I signed up for tutoring as I was advised to do, and that advice turned out to be a winner for me. The guy that I go to for help holds small classes, and he’s able to give one-on-one help because of that. It’s very different from my university where each one of my classes has 100 or more students in each class, and no professor has time to meet with each of us to give extra assistance. Now that I’m getting help, I’ve found that I’m doing better with my homework, getting good grades on all my tests and quizzes, and I think I will pass my class with a high grade.
I hired a paving contractor in Nassau County NY to come out and take a look at my pavement because I thought I saw an awful lot of cracking going on. Cracks in a drive way or on other types of pavement are a big problem because water gets into them and when it freezes in the winter it will cause more cracking. This will eventually lead to the total destruction of the pavement in question because at some point entire pieces will separate. The only way to fix the damage at that point is to replace the entire thing.
I wasn’t about to shell out the big bucks for something like that. Continue reading They Sealed Those Cracks Right Up
In case you hadn’t noticed, there are numerous people out there who are taking courses. From classes at their local colleges to online learning modules, many are clamoring to further their education. If you are in the technology field, taking a UX design course would be a great idea. Here are three reasons to sign up sooner rather than later.
Connecting With Users
Many people in the technology sector spend so much time with machines that they have lost the ability to connect with others. This is a huge setback when it comes to design. Since the user’s experience matters, connecting with them is the only way to be successful at this. Continue reading Three Reasons to Take a UX Design Course Now
I should have known what was about to happen. I was going down the same busy street that I take home from work every day of the work week. As usual there were lots of people who are willing to do all sorts of crazy stuff to save themselves a couple of seconds. At any rate this one fool passed me on the shoulder, which is never a good idea. I could not slow down because there were people all around me. A couple of days later I had to go see a chiropractor in Camas WA, even though the accident did not seem like a big deal at the time. Continue reading I Got into a Minor Accident
Until I stumbled over a website that led me to the best hidden secret apartment living in the Washington, D.C. area, I was living in what can only be described as a very bad place. The neighborhood is what you would call very sketchy, and the apartment I was living in with three other people left a lot to be desired in almost every way. It seemed the basic stuff, things like hot water, would constantly stop working. The landlord was a mysterious figure who no one ever claimed to have actually seen in person. I couldn’t wait to get out of there.
The problem is that the cost of living in this city is off the charts. It’s no joke when they say that D.C. Continue reading A Hidden Gem in Washington DC
I was not driving at the time, but I was in the passenger side of a car. The guy who was driving is a bit of a hothead and he was about half responsible for the accident, because he was driving angry because some other jerk had cut him off. The two of them were cursing at each other when someone else got involved and he was too distracted to prevent the collision. At any rate the air bag really nailed me and I had to find a cosmetic dentist, click here for website of the guy and you can see that he seems to know his business when it comes to this sort of oral reconstruction. It is a big deal for me to get out of the situation that I am. Continue reading I Had to Get My Teeth Replaced
My folks have lived in Scottsdale for over ten years, and they absolutely love it. I was given a great opportunity there, and I did not have to think twice about it. I had been visiting them about three times a year, and I knew that living there so close to them would do them as much good as it would do for me. I started looking at apartments in Scottsdale AZ even before I signed my new work contract because I just wanted to make sure everything was in check as soon as possible.
My parents offered to let me stay with them as they have the room, but I knew that I would be more comfortable in my own place because of my work hours. I also did not want to live in a community that was comprised mostly of senior citizens! When I saw the Stetson, I knew that was where I wanted to be. Continue reading Moving to Arizona is Awesome
My Halloween costume is almost complete. I need to do a few finishing touches and walk around in it a bit to break it in, but other than that, it’s pretty much ready for a public debut. The costume is of a famous super hero that has a metal suit. Initially I planned to make the suit out of foam, but I wanted to make it look as authentic as possible, so I search around for the price of scrap metal and found a place that would let me buy some cheap metal that was light enough to build the costume.
The best metal for the job was aluminum. Aluminum is pretty light, but it can be strong and sturdy. Since it’s an abundant metal, it’s also pretty affordable. The metal can be easily cut with a pair of tin snips, and assembled with a bit of spot welding or some screws and bolts. Continue reading From Metal Scrap to Metal Hero
This house is about forty five years old and it is not that far from Central Park, so if it were in good shape it would command a very nice price. It needs a great deal of work however, since the last person to own it really did very little to maintain it. The big item on the agenda is to find the best deal on hvac contracts in NYC. There used to be a system installed in the building, but while it was vacant that system was cannibalized by some person. Continue reading Getting Started on the Renovation
Growing up, I never thought much about the daycare that I went to. Which is, of course, normal because I was a child. I was just interested in having fun. But after I had children of my own, my mother said that I needed to pay attention to the type of place I enroll them. She suggested that I look into a Noahs Ark Childcare location to enroll my two girls.
First, I went to a fun nursery school up until the age of four years old. I remember that I loved to go there. They even brought in a very large swimming pool on the back of a trailer during the summer for us to play in. Once they brought in the pool, I could not wait to get back there each day to play in it. Continue reading Where You Take Your Children Each Day is Important
I really wanted to do something special for my parents. They were getting ready to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary, plus my dad was going to retire within a few weeks. To have two milestones like that happen so closely together meant a celebration was in order. I decided to rent a private room at a local restaurant, and I invited 30 of their closest friends along with 20 relatives. I wanted to learn more about limos and how much they cost, because I thought it would be perfect to have them arrive there in style like that.
I had never rented a limo for any occasion. My husband and I were too poor when we got married, and my son and daughter both had destination weddings, so there was no need for one. I wasn’t sure that it would be in my budget, so I just went to the website to find out whether I could afford one or not. The first thing that surprised me were how many different limos there were. Continue reading A Special Night for My Parents
I watched two social media accounts grow in leaps and bounds for our business. Then I watched our Instagram account grow very slowly. According to our demographic research, we had a large number of customers using Instagram, but we were just not getting them to follow us on our account. I was looking into whether or not we should buy real Instagram followers to boost our account. If you have an account that has a lot of followers, then others want to jump on the bandwagon and follow you too. This is how accounts on other social media get subscribers and followers to grow exponentially. It seems easier to get your second million followers or subscribers than it is to get that first million.
I’m like that too. If I look at something on social media, it takes a lot for me to want to follow or subscribe. Continue reading Getting More Followers on a Slow-Growing Social Media Account
For years, I kept thinking about how I was going to get ahead with my property management business. I finally had to hire a part time helper in Singapore to make that happen. I tried to keep the business small, while still also bringing in enough money to do well financially. That just wasn’t possible to do alone. When I didn’t do enough with each property in terms of maintenance, that slowed up incoming cash because I couldn’t get new tenants moved in quickly enough.
My parents instilled a really good work ethic in me, but it took awhile. They gave me the freedom to make choices about what I would do when I was very young. I chose to play and have a good time. My mom would simply ask me to get my chores done, and then I ignored her often and did what I wanted. She and my father decided to switch things up a bit and told me that I would receive an allowance if I did my chores. Continue reading I Work Really Hard, but I Needed a Helper to Get Even Further with My Business
I voted for President Donald Trump and am very proud to call him my president. I think he is doing a fantastic job and catches a lot of undeserved flack from the democratic party over many personal and political issues. I read some Trump news earlier today and came across an article that some doctors who are not associated with President Trump are requesting and demanding that he undergo a mental evaluation and have his head examined. This is ludicrous and is extremely disrespectful in my honest opinion.
It is more than obvious that he is not the typical politician that we are all used to seeing and dealing with. Continue reading President Trump is Making Progress on His Promises
I have always been attracted to bald men. There is just something really nice about that for me, and my husband looks amazing with no hair on his head, other than a mustache and a goatee. I never gave much thought to a woman without hair though because that is just not something I would see in my daily life. When I started noticing more and more hair coming out when I would style my hair, I knew that I needed to look into a Singapore aesthetic centre since I researched options for women with thinning hair.
My problem seemed more severe than just thinning hair, but it turned out that it was not anything too drastic. A lot of hair is lost every day with anyone, and I just had a bit more than average hair loss. Continue reading I Don’t Want to Be Bald Like My Husband
A little over 15 years ago I started my own catering business and have been very successful until the last couple of years. I have noticed a sizable decrease in the number of new clients contacting me. I have brainstormed over this and the only thing I could come up with was that I don’t have an updated website which is the route most people are using to find services they want or need nowadays. This is a problem that needs my immediate attention. After searching online I found an SEO company in Philippines that also offers web design.
I figured once they could get my website up to date they could then start working on raising my ranking when people are doing internet searches for caterers. Continue reading How an SEO Gets Your Company Noticed
New Futura in Singapore certainly has an apt name. It does seem like these condos represent the future of living in this beautiful city. I used to live in really cramped quarters far from the city center, and I hated every minute of it. It took too long to get anywhere around the city because I was so far from the bus line. Just getting there on time proved daunting. I also couldn’t easily get to the restaurants and stores I wanted to visit. I knew I needed to move.
But where to go? Getting a new place in this city is one of the most problematic endeavors you can embark upon. It’s almost a full time job trying to land new digs here. But I knew I needed to do it. A co-worker in the know put in a word for me at New Futura and I dropped by for a visit. What an amazing place! The location is absolutely perfect for me, and the amenities are to die for. Continue reading The Best Place to Live in the City
As a student who lives in his own apartment, I don’t like to clean most of the time. That’s why I looked into a cleaning company for Singapore apartment residents to use. It really helps me out when I want to have my place clean, but don’t have a lot of time because of studying and exams. College life can really take a lot of time off my hands, but at least I know that my place will be clean and spotless because of the service that I use. I even recommend the service to all of my friends.
My mom comes to visit me occasionally, and she always talks about how my places is so clean. Continue reading Long Hours and Dirty Places
I was so happy when I got the phone call telling me that I was hired by a company that I absolutely love. It is my dream job, and every step of my work life in the last few years has been devoted to getting hired by this company. It did mean that I was going to have to relocate, but I was definitely okay with that. The only problem was that I did not have a lot of time to make this move happen. I knew I would need to search for moving out cleaning in Singapore because there was no way I would be able to do everything on my own.
It was easy enough for me to find a new place to live that is only about a three minute walk from where I work. It was also easy to arrange for a moving company to transport all of my furniture and possessions. Continue reading They Are Like Magical Cleaning Fairies
Finding a cheat for Virtual Families 2 was important for me because although I adore these types of raise a family and build buildings sort of games, I can get a bit itchy about the slow pace. These types of games are designed to take place in real time and thus really have no end point. Depending on what the developers do, these games can literally run for your entire life. That can be problematic for gamers who like a faster pace and want to see things happen quite frequently. I’m definitely someone who likes to move things along.
Really there are two types of gamers I’ve encountered in games like this one. Continue reading Get All the Goodies with This Cheat
I had been trying to convince my sister to visit me in Florida for years, but she never did. She knew her husband did not like to travel, and she chose to keep our relationship going with telephone calls and video chats. When her husband came home one day and packed up everything of his and left her, she was dumbfounded for a short while. I couldn’t really blame her, because they had been together for nearly 10 years. When she asked me how expensive apartments for Brandon area residents are, I got my hopes up for the first time in ages.
I asked her if she was joking, and she told me that there was nothing holding her back anymore. I convinced her to come visit me first, and I bought her airline tickets for the following week. She fell in love with the area as I took her around on a tour from the airport to my home. I asked her to come and stay with me for a while, to see if she likes Florida, and she told me that she had already quit her job and put her stuff in storage. Continue reading Living in Florida Took Her Heartbreak Away
I was on a website looking at different apartments in the suburbs of Atlanta when I came across an ad that said to click here for the finest in living accommodations. The picture that accompanied the ad was gorgeous, so of course I clicked on it to see what it had to offer. As soon as I saw the buildings for Green Park, I knew that it was the one for me. The location is perfect because it is not right in Atlanta. If you have ever driven in Atlanta, you will absolutely understand why I wanted to live in one of the suburbs. Continue reading A Studio Apartment is Perfect for My Needs
Vacation time came for my friends and I and we were in the midst of planning our next trip. We had been to pretty much every location in the United States, so we made plans for an international trip. We flipped a coin to decide between flying to Canada or Mexico. I wanted to go to Canada, but Mexico won in the end, and I wasn’t too keen on it. One of my friends said that I would get over it once I saw one of the luxury villa rentals for Cabo San Lucas.
Aside from the Mexican food that I’ve eaten at some local restaurants, I knew very little about Mexico. Anything related to Mexico I had ever seen came from television shows, and they always made it look like there was a lot of desert land and dirt roads. I’ve been to Canada before as a child, and wanted to see it again because I had fond memories of it from being there with my parents. Continue reading I’m Glad I Went to Mexico
The one thing we really like to do is to walk the boardwalk at the edge of the water at our apartment. Back when we were looking for an apartment for rent in Miami Beach, we definitely wanted to be close to the water. We are at Treasures On The Bay at North Bay Village here in Florida. It is really a beautiful place. I never get tired of walking on that huge boardwalk. Biscayne Bay is a great spot for those who want the full beach-living kind of experience. The North Bay Village is on a piece of land that juts out into the bay.
We have family that lives over in Hialeah, so it is nice to be close. The apartment has more amenities than I thought was possible to cram into a place to live. There are three swimming pools right at the bay front. Continue reading We Definitely Picked Bay Living when We Moved to Miami
I had been looking at different apartments for rent in Kingsport TN, and I was starting to think that I would not find what I wanted. When my friend told me to check out Country Shores, I was not excited about it at first because it was a few minutes outside of the area I wanted to live in because of where I work. She told me that it would be worth it to check out, mostly because of the reasonable rates for rent. I decided I had nothing to lose other than maybe a few minutes, so I went online to look at their website.
I was really surprised with what I found there. I figured that it would have to be a nice complex in order to attract tenants, but I was not expecting it to be as perfect as it is. Continue reading The Apartment is in the Perfect Location
