The Price of Our Freedom

Featured

When I was looking for a new place to call home after moving into the area, I surprised myself by not finding a place before I moved to the state. It’s kind of an old habit of mine that I picked up when I was couch surfing during my early 20′s and unfortunately this time around I was stuck crashing in my car for a month! I thought I was going to be able to find a place a lot easier than I did but when everything was starting to look kind of grim I came across the Waterford apartments in a local listing magazine.

It wasn’t exactly what I was looking for but it was definitely better than nothing. Continue reading

I Just Got My Own Place

I just moved out of my Mom’s basement. I moved back in for about seven months after I got out of college. I was fortunate enough to find a good job, but of course that did not mean that I was going to be able to pay for a place of my own. At least it would have been really tough, especially when you consider the cost of living here in the Bay area. Then of course you have to pay for a San Francisco internet provider and I would want to have some way to watch live sports on TV. So I really needed to save up some money and get a bit of my student debt paid down. I figure that it is best to get as much of it paid down as early as I am able. Continue reading

We Saved Money by Switching Energy Companies

When my husband lost his job, we knew that we were going to have to implement some changes. While we had savings that would take care of our major bills for a few months, we were not sure how long it would take for him to find sustainable employment again. I looked at our bills to see if we could cut back on anything, and that is when I realized that I could compare electricity companies in spring tx to see if we were actually paying the lowest amount possible for our energy needs.

When our area was first deregulated, I didn’t really give it much thought because we were already established with the company we had been using for years. Now that there was competition though, I knew that the energy companies would be offering great prices and plans so they would end up with more customers. Continue reading

Paying for My Favorite Shows

Cable TV is no doubt the first thing that I look into whenever I need to sign up for utilities at a new place. What can I say; I need my HBO and Showtime as well as my Internet service. I cannot imagine trying to go without the web when I use it as one of my primary sources of entertainment as well as employment. It’s no doubt that it’s expensive to have both but I’mm just not ready to cut the cord yet as my friends have been encouraging me to since I cannot get HBO or Showtime independently of a cable subscription.

It’s a bummer that my only option is actually paying so much for a package that I’m really nnot going to be putting to use but I don’t feel like waiting to watch the show on DVD and since I don’t believe in pirating things, I feel like it would be pretty wrong to do something like that just because I want to try and save some cash on a subscription fee.

Purchase Comments for Instagram Account

I have this crazy idea for how to become famous using social media. A large part of the plan centers around Instagram because I think that so much can be conveyed with pictures. Since people will interpret things differently, a picture can reach out to many more people in many more ways than words can. But at the same time, words are important as well, and I want to buy Instagram comments for my account and the things that I post in order to help to build the popularity of the account.

I already have a modest following, but I think that it can get a lot bigger. I just to have to put in the work to make it happen, and in this case, that happens to include buying some comments. I don’t think that is a bad thing though, because everyone has to get famous somehow. Continue reading

After my wife decided to visit http://www.tummytucksanantonio.com in order to get a tummy tuck, I too decided that it might be time for a change in my appearance.

Vertical Blinds for Sliding Door

I want to get some vertical blinds to go with a sliding door. I do not think that horizontal blinds even really make sense with a sliding door, considering that horizontal blinds are raised and lowered, and vertical ones are slid to the left or the right. That is the same as a door works, which can be opened by sliding it to the right generally, and closed by sliding it to the left generally. Oh, actually it depends on which side of the door you are on, as to which way you slide it in order to close it, or open it.

My bad, I should have realized that in the first place, but at least I did realize it at all. I have made worse mistakes and not been able to realize my error. I am going to look up a good site to sell me this type of blind, because I have never tried to buy one before, but I should have got one earlier. Continue reading

Started Work on Fixing Up the House

We got the house, but now we have a lot of stuff that we need to do. If it had been in great shape we could not have afforded it, but this is a house that has been sitting for a long time with no work done to it. We have a sign that says Californias best home security, but there is not any monitoring program for the security system yet. I am trying to figure out when the roof was last fixed. I went up there to look at the satellite dish. Continue reading

A Great Website for Train Horns

These days it is hard to think back and really imagine what the world was like before global commerce, especially with as easy as the internet makes things today. There are countless niche hobbies and professions that require specialty parts. If the only place to get them is on the other side of the country, it can be tough to figure things out properly and get good deals. Of course in the old days things like catalogs and phone orders tried to fill this void, but they still leave much to desire. Websites like http://www.trainhornsunlimited.com make the process of getting a niche item like train horns easier than ever.

Not only do they have a great selection of kits and parts, but browsing through them and finding the best solution is certainly easier than ever now. Continue reading

I Got the Business Running Again

AMSLV offering high risk merchant accounts at an affordable price ...The banks are not really doing me any favors, but I have all of the ducks in a row and I am operating. In fact business is quite good. All of the people who have money seem to feel as though I am a big risk, but so far I am not really understanding what that is the case to be honest. The people who process the credit card transactions are the biggest bother, aside from the fact that I nearly have to lose money on the deal. They required me to use a merchant account for high risk sellers, which I have no real clue what that means. I give a discount if you use cash or a debit card, because I pretty much hate credit cards for very practical reasons. Any person in my position would see that the obvious fact is that the credit card companies are really taking advantage of small business people like me. You pay fees that come out of your profits and which benefit no one at all.

If things keep going so well for another few months I will be out of the danger zone and I suspect that the banks will get off my back and do their evil shadow routine on some other guy or some other small business person. It is not going to take long for them to get back on my case if things go bad though. I get the feeling that someone down there must have it in for me, because other wise they would not be so concerned with someone as small time as I am. They should be worried about some important people with big loans, although important people with big loans are not so easy to push around as the guy who is trying to stay above water.

Started Trying to Lose Some Weight Again

My issue is obviously self control, because I get a fair amount of exercise on the job. It is not like I am sitting behind a desk all day. I do spend a lot of time driving my truck or operating machinery, but I get a good deal of exercise slinging wood and steel around job sites. I do love to eat and so my wife has decided that I need something called bistro md coupon. I guess that is like nutrisystem or something, at any rate I am not sure that I really want to do something like that. The big thing is just that I need to push away from the table without going back for seconds all of the time. Continue reading

Custom Promo Items for Advertising

I am trying to think of ways to advertise my business better, and I want to get started on this enterprise as quickly as I can. The sales have not been that good lately, and I am hoping to be able to figure out different ways to improve sales. I think spending some money on advertising is a good investment at this point in time. As such, I am going to start looking for promo items that I can order and give out free to customers and stuff like that.

I really want to make sure that I am able to get a lot of such products for a good price, so I am going to look around for different companies that sell these sort of products. I want to make sure that the items are customized, because that is very important aspect of this advertising. I want to make sure that the company’s logo and information is on all of the items that I purchase.

I am not sure the best way to give them away in order to help improve sales.
