Upgrading an Air Conditioning Unit for My Business

I bought a new air conditioning unit for my office. It’s going to be amazing. It’s rated really highly, and my neighbor who owns a deli just had the same exact unit installed. His place feels like a freezer when you walk in, which is exactly what I’m going for. The next thing I need to do is find someone who specializes in air conditioning installation in New York City. My neighbor had this great company come in to do the work, so I may just use them. I really appreciate referrals from friends and family, because then I know that the company I’m using is really trustworthy and will get the job done.

My business partner suggested that we upgrade our air conditioner about a month ago, because some of our customers were complaining about how hot it was in our office. Continue reading

Being in Denial Got Me in Trouble with My Wife

You cannot just put things off to deal with much later. You have to stay on top of getting things done. It may be frustrating and tiring, but that is just the way life is. Life isn’t fair, and if you want to try to keep things in balance as much as possible, you must be willing to put in effort to try to keep things in balance. I did not do that, and I needed emergency roof replacement in Queens because of it. I could have saved money by doing the right thing, but I did not. Me ignoring things should be a lesson for everyone else.

I had a slight leak in the ceiling of one of my rooms about two years ago. I knew it because I could see the dried water stain on the ceiling. I ignored it and did nothing about it. The next four or so times that we had storms, I checked the room and did not notice any moisture. Continue reading

Lost a Couple of Trees in the Storm

I guess that I am going to have to find a good tree service in Long Island and it is going to be pretty expensive when you get right down to it. It is easy enough for you to see what needs to be done, but in this case it is not so easy to do it. You are not going to be able to get out in the yard with a chainsaw and take the one tree down because it is only half of the way down to the ground. It is laying at a forty degree angle to the ground with the top of the tree about twenty five feet above the ground. I have seen this before and I saw a guy take a tree down, but it is one thing to see it and another thing to do it. Continue reading

Saving Money with a New Energy Plan

I wanted to find more info on Texas energy companies before making a decision on which one I wanted to switch to. I was pretty excited that I even had this opportunity as most people are stuck with whatever is in their area. Here in Texas though, energy is deregulated, which means that we are able to choose the companies that we want to provide the energy into our homes and businesses. I have always had the same company since first moving here nearly 10 years ago, but I was ready for a change.

I never do anything without researching, which is why I wanted to go to each website and learn about the energy plans and rates. Continue reading

Instead of Vacationing at the Place We Liked, We Decided to Move There

Have you ever went on vacation and wish you could move there? I know that a lot of people want a beachfront home, but I like trees and lawns. I like sunshine and lots of it too. My wife and I liked visiting Georgia on vacation so much that we found ourselves looking for apartments for rent in Sandy Springs GA one year. We could not afford a vacation home, but we could afford a vacation apartment. We learned that there are place that have short-term leases as well as your standard year lease apartments. We have rented cabins and other places to stay at on our vacations. We hit the road on the first day after school lets out and do not go back to our place until late August before the new school year begins.

We really like Sandy Springs, Georgia. We like the city and the skyline that has the Concourse buildings. Continue reading

Physical Strength is Not Enough

Due to an unfortunate accident with toilet paper, I had to call a company to perform a drain cleaning in Rockland County NY. The toilet became clogged and was close to overflowing, but I was able to turn off the water before it went that far. I used my plunger to unclog the drain myself, but it didn’t budge. Usually these kinds of tasks only take a few minutes to fix, even with professional tools, which is why I didn’t want to make any calls. I’d rather not spend any money if I don’t have to, but in this case, I had no choice.

While waiting for the company to arrive, I tried again to unclog the drain. Continue reading

My Tree Needed to Be Pruned

I used to love trees, but that changed about ten years ago when one fell on my roof. I was not a happy camper then, mainly because the deductible in my insurance was really high. When I moved last year into a home that has a large tree pretty close to the house, one of the first things I did was contact a company that does tree service in Queens County, NY. I do like nature, and I didn’t want the tree to be cut down completely. I just wanted to make sure that it was not going to come down anytime soon on its own.

It did not look like it had ever been pruned, and that was the main thing that I wanted to make sure of. Continue reading

How Much Do You Need to Worry About Termites?

I started to think about this the other day. I ran into one of my neighbors who told me that he had found an infestation of termites in NYC in his attic. He had gone up in his attic to get down his wife’s summer clothing. Like a lot of people she has tubs which she fills with the clothes that you can only use when it is warm. When he carried one of them up into the attic he noticed some insects flying around and had to take a closer look. Of course there was a termite colony up there and he had to call one of the companies that deal with that sort of problem. Continue reading

I Have Been Learning About Hinduism

I was not really thinking I would care that much about taking theology. It was just simply the best class that I could find that would help me get the credit I needed to get me closer to graduation. In fact I am taking four very difficult classes that are going to help me get my major in Applied Sciences. I was just hoping that this would be a fairly easy class to get a good grade in. It probably will be, but I have become interested in some of the religions which are very different from mine. Yajna for instance is the avatar of the hindu god Vishnu and it is associated with the act of sacrifices. In fact when you look around the web you see that there are a lot of rather unusual practices associated with Indian Hinduism. Continue reading

I Was Happy to Learn That You Can Buy Safer Dyes for You Hair

I became pregnant last year, and my husband and me could not have been more thrilled. We still are, and we love that we have a very happy, one-year-old little girl. She is the light of our lives, and we have been doing all that we can to change our lives so that we can live longer for her sake. For example, I recently went on the hunt to find organic hair dye in Singapore so that I can try to stay away from the usual store brands that contain so many ingredients that I do not even know how to pronounce.

I did not even know if this type of dye existed in any store, but I figured that I needed to try. I had heard so many things about traditional dyes, and wanted something more natural. While I was still carrying my daughter, I certainly did not want to worry about changing the color of my hair for the sake of it when it could affect my unborn daughter. So, I went without or nine months. That is not really a big deal because her health is more important, but I do know that I did not like feeling so frumpy with my gray hair showing through so much during my pregnancy.

She our little girl was born, I decided that I would like to get rid of my grays, but I still wanted to know if I could find dye that would be better to use. I headed out last Saturday afternoon and stopping in at a couple of different shops. Two of them had just what I was looking for. Upon asking if the product worked, one of the employees stated she uses it, and one look at her hair showed me that the product did a beautiful job. It really made sense to buy it, so I raced home to try it out. My hair now looks beautiful once again, too.
