pJack and I have been scouting for different locations and we thought maybe we had found something we liked, but it is not looking like we really want to get in as deep as we might get if we bought this place. Obviously there are going to be problems with any building you buy, but we got a building inspector to look at this one and he pointed out a lot of problems. The big one was sunk when we talked to a guy who does a href=”http://www.tectacommercialroofingnj.com”commercial roof repair in Bergen county NJ/a. The guy took about a week before he got over there, obviously he had other stuff to do.!–more– At any rate when he got back to us he was telling us that the roof was not that sound and it needed to be replaced and that needed to be done before the next Winter rolled around. Of course if you have a Winter like the last one you see quite a few roofs give it up.br /br /Any structure has a physical limit and you can not expose it to a load that exceeds that. If you have a foot or two of snow that usually is not going to be a big deal, but when you have a Winter where the snow stretches up seven or eight feet, that starts to add up. Last year put way too much stress on this roof. Of course it is not just the building you have to worry about. If we are using this building, then we are going to be putting our people in the place and you definitely do not want to have to worry about the roof falling down on top of you or one of your customers. That is not good for business in any way at all./p
pThere is a whole lot of stuff to do if you want to buy a house, a lot of it is stuff that I did not ever know about until I started trying to get this house down the street from where a friend of mine lives. A couple of weeks ago I went to pick him up because the two of us were going out and I decided to stop and talk to this guy who had a little house for sale about two blocks away. It has a really nice view more so than my friend’s place because it is sited on the edge of a ridge that looks out over the whole valley. You could probably get a telescope and spy on half of the people in the area from up there, because it looks over all of the area pretty much. That is not the best thing about it though, the price is really good./ppI did a bit of snooping because it seemed as though the price that the guy was asking was too low.!–more– I was not sure at first, but it is obvious that he wants to get rid of the house as quickly as he can. At first I thought that he was desperate to dump it for some reason, but it seems that he just does not care enough to try to get the best price he could for it. He has a job that pays him a lot of money, but he apparently came in to the house as part of some sort of settlement. I did not really understand what happened, but the house was given to him as part of an inheritance deal. Apparently he was related to a person who owned a number of properties and he got one, but does not want it./p

I was living with two other guys in this run down house close to the campus of the college we all attended. The three of us had a student deal from Time Warner Cable>. It cost like twenty some dollars and we split that three ways. If it had been any more we would not have paid for it. The three of us were sort of putting other things on a much higher priority. Food was one of the big things, but beer came right after that and girls came before either of those things. Continue reading
pI did not know what to do with my father’s old house for awhile. It has been in my possession for 3 years, since his passing, and I have kept it in fairly good condition, to try to make sure that it does not get into a state of disrepair, which would hinder future plans with what to do with the property. I have decided to sell it, but to fix it up first. First on my list, is to find a place to buy some a href=”http://www.orangecountyshutters.com”shutters/a for the house, because when I was growing up, the house had shutters./ppI just feel like, the house should have shutters on it, before I sell it.!–more– I would like to sell it in a condition close to how I remember the house in as a child. I just think it would be nice, and kind of a thing to do in tribute to the memory of my father. I think he would have approved of the move. I want to get this done quickly, because I am going to move to sell the house int he near future, and I do not want to have any snags in the process./ppI have a few contractors coming this week, to do some work on the house. I think that it would be best to have the shutters put in later in the week, so that the other work can be completed first. After all of that is done, I am going to look at the house, and try to see if there are more changes to be done. It will depend on how much I have left in my budget, because I can’t afford to spend a ridiculous amount fixing up the house, even if it will significantly increase how much I am able to sell it for./p
pMy brother wanted me to a href=”http://www.streampromo.com”buy Twitch views/a for his stream so he would be able to boast to his friends that he had over 5,000 views. I decided not to do it, and told him that if he wanted the views so badly, he would get the money on his on. Of course he wasn’t happy to hear this, but it had to be said. I was able to gain an idea from him asking me to pay for his views. I thought that if I could have my own views, I would be able to actually make money from them./ppI set up my own stream, and bought some views for myself. My plan was to use the views that I bought to bring other people to the stream, which would give me the ability to run ads and have special subscriptions. My plan started to work, and I began running the services and ads. I started getting a payment from Twitch each month based on the money I made from ads and subscriptions. Of course Twitch got a cut of the money, but the amount I was making was still great.!–more– It was a brand new way of working from home./ppMy brother was a little jealous that he wasn’t able to do the same thing that I did, because I didn’t buy his views, but he eventually bought his own, and was able to start making money from streaming. It’s funny how his goals changed from gaining bragging rights to making money after he saw how much I was making. He’s using his money to pay for his college expenses and any food cravings he may get. He’s a hungry boy, so he goes through a lot of food. At least now he can order his own pizza./p
pI have been really busy lately. I spent the morning down at the offices of txu energy in mission, tx. They had me confused with some guy who did not pay his power bill and wanted me to give them something like a hundred and seventy six dollars before they would hook up the power at the house I am trying to move into. Of course this is a big deal, because I am trying to remodel the bathroom and the kitchen and we are on a schedule. I was taking off of work to do this stuff and I had expected the power to be on. It was not and they told me that I was a deadbeat, which was ridiculous. I do have a relatively common name, especially in this part of the state of Texas.!–more– There were always people with the same last name in this part of the state, someone with the name came out here when this was part of Mexico and owned a big land grant in this area, or so it was always told to me./ppNo clue if or how I could be related to these people, especially since my great great grandfather (paternally, the one who gave me the name) was from Illinois and moved here with his family a long time ago, but long after the Texas Revolution and long after statehood. It is a fairly common name and I have met three or four other people with it while I was down here, one of them brought me some of my mail that got sent to his house and we tried to figure out if we were some way or another kin to one another. It is probable that there are a hundred people with my name just in Texas though./p
I had to do some serious budget cutting. I spent a lot of money on Christmas and then right after I had to spend a small fortune getting my car fixed. One day it was really cold and when I went out to go to work the car would not come out of reverse. I was really upset with the situation, but I guess the transmission fluid was froze up. I backed up and fooled around, but it was stuck. I went and canceled my cable, replaced the Internet with DSL from centurylink internet service. The cable TV went and did not get replaced. I figured that there were some things I could do without if I had to do without them.
For starters I need to make my house payment, I need to have my car working and I need to keep gas in it, then I need them to not to cut off my electric power and I need to get groceries and pay my car insurance. All that stuff is not optional, cable tv is optional and it costs me a fortune here. In fact I sort of realized that I could live without it so far. I have missed some of the ball games that I might have watched, but it is not that big of a deal. I needed to have internet, but for the important games I can walk down the street to my buddy’s place about half of the time. It was not that big of a deal at any rate if I did miss a game. I can find other stuff to occupy myself and at any rate there are a lot of over the air tv channels now. I think I can get around twenty five over the air tv channels.
I have just now gotten started finishing the house. Of course I could afford to have a house built, but it has not inner walls or flooring or that sort of thing right now. I used to do some drywall work when I was in college and I can do that part of it myself, especially since my uncle is going to be around for a few weeks and he is going to supervise the job. I have already put in the guts of a home security system, but I need to figure out what to do about the brains of it. I bought it on an ebay auction with some problems, but I got some a great deal that it was worth it. Now I just need to find the rest of the stuff that I need. Continue reading
There are few home security teams that are better than the buffalo ny adt team, they are some of the best in home security and they do everything that they can to make you feel safe as can be inside of your own home. I mean as far as I can tell everyone out there wants to be safe in their home and would not be here if they did not want to be. I mean we choose our home, but we do not get to choose those that live around us and if there is any way to make a home safer, I do not know why anyone would ever consider going without it. I mean if a theif breaks into my home, I want the police notified whether I am there or not so the security system that goes onto the door or the window and makes an alarm trigger is a great idea.

In our modern society, it is rare for any one of us to actually have a home phone plan. I can’t recall a single one of my friends who has actually decided to use a home phone – why should we pay for another bill for telephone service when most of us have a cell phone that is completely mobile and does more than a home phone ever could? Sure, a cheap home phone might have some uses; like having phone service for when your cell phone dies, I guess! Personally, I’d never sign up for another phone service. It’s not like I need yet another number for people to call me at, especially bill collectors and telemarketers. Continue reading
My wife Kayane and I love the internet. We love to do so many things with it. I am able to run my business from the comfort of my own home. I do not need to rent an expensive office. I also use the internet to play online with my friends. It is more entertaining to play online that by yourself. My wife uses the internet to communicate with her family. They live in France and cannot be next to her. I love our internet. The dsl internet providers are geniuses. I am very glad that I chose a company to provide my family with the gift of quality and affordable internet access.
My children also love to use the internet. They use it for their school projects. They take classes such as history, math, and science. They constantly use the internet as an unlimited ocean of information. My kids also learn educational information. Thanks to the internet, I am able to teach my own children from home.

On www.directsavingstv.com/, I found some great deals that made me switch from my cable company. I’ve been with the cable company for many years, and I thought I was getting good service, but the deals I found online were better by comparison. I went to the website after a friend told me that he had switched from cable. Like me, he had been with the cable company for a long time. It wasn’t until he saw an ad on television that he thought about switching.
My friend is the kind of person who will stay loyal to a company, no matter what happens. It was surprising to see that he switched from cable. Continue reading
