Money and Land in Texas

Texas is quietly on Ryder economic war path thanks to its investment in natural resources for the past few years. This has allowed them to develop one of the most efficient energy infrastructures that the nation can claim to have. With multiple energy companies being provided to its residents there it’s a great deal of money to be made here. It’s the primary reason that I have chosen the arboretum apartments in Austin as my new home.I’m excited to see where President Trump and his cabinet will be taking us in the next few years.

Rick Perry becoming the head of the energy department is a coup for the lone star state which will no doubt help the current eject providers to make even more money. Continue reading

The Perfect Zip Code to Live in

I did not want to move for a few different reasons, but they all flew out the window when my husband told me where we would be moving to. He had told me to look at apartments in Stone Oak, and he knew that would change my entire attitude about moving. I did not want to leave the apartment we were in because it was the nicest one we had lived in our ten years of marriage, but even I knew that it could not begin to compare to anything we would find in Stone Oak.

He has worked so hard to move up in the company he was working at, and he finally did it. He got a five year contract, and the money he would make in those five years is more than he has made in the last 20 years of working put together. When bonuses are added onto that, I cannot even begin to think about the amount of money he will make. Continue reading

Living the Rental Life Has Been a Nice Surprise

Moving to another state and straight into a home is not as easy as I thought it would be. I really thought my husband and I could find the best home to buy by looking at websites, and then choosing online. I found quite a few places that I liked, and we flew out to MS one weekend to look at them. We liked none of them at all. We had little time, so I figured we should look at 2 bedroom apartments in Hattiesburg MS during our visit. That way, we would at least have some place to stay while we looked for a place.

Neither my husband or myself had lived in an apartment for the last 30 years. So, I originally was not looking forward to it. But was surprised me in looking for a place to rent is that rental properties have really come a long way compared to 30 years ago! They are so much nicer now. Continue reading

Apartments Can Have More Room Inside Than Houses You Rent

The big reason I did not seem enthusiastic about my wife wanting to look at apartments was that I was convinced the house we were living in was bigger. We lived in a suburb and the houses were all close to one another. Some of them seemed to barely have enough room to walk two people side by side between them. The houses were small, but because they were houses I thought we had more room. Then my wife took me to see huge apartments in Salt Lake City for rent. It made the rooms on our rented house look cramped.

Sure, I know there is a difference in perception when you look at a room that does not have furniture in it. However, I got out the tape measure and compared. I was arming myself with info to counter any claims my wife would assume. I measured the living room and main bedroom on our rented house and wrote it down. Then I measured them in the apartment expecting them to be smaller. I was wrong. There was quite a bit more square footage we would have if we choose to move into one of these huge apartments in Salt Lake City for rent. Oh, and the ceilings were higher too. Continue reading

A Company That Sells Corporate Gifts

I wanted to find a company that sells corporate gifts at a great price. I had been getting them from one company for the past few years, but their selection was not very large. I did not want to always have to get shirts or mugs, which are the two things that this promotional materials company carried the most of. I looked at several different companies that provide corporate gifts to businesses, and the one I like the best is http://doorgiftsingapore.com. The main reason this one came out on top is because of the sheer number of items they have to sell.

That is the first thing I looked at with all the companies that I checked. When I looked at the different categories that Doors Gift Singapore offers to its clients, I knew that this was the company for me. They have small things from key chains and luggage tags to tool kits, luggage and radios. There are even gifts that are environmentally friendly. The next thing that I looked at was the price. I was happy with the selection, but I also had to be happy with the prices in order to use this company for my own company’s needs.

I was very happy with the prices that I saw on this site. I also liked how quick they are shipped out, once an order is placed. There is really not anything I did not like about this company, and I placed my first order that same day that I found it. It was pretty much a test order, so I just ordered calculators. That is something that anyone here can use, plus it would let me know if I was going to have a good and long relationship with this corporate gifts company. After receiving the order quickly, I can say with confidence that I will use this company for the long haul!

Foundation Repair for Texas House

Much to my displeasure, I am going to have to hire a company to do foundation repair in Spring Texas as I will need to have the foundation of my house repaired sometime in the relatively near future. I don’t expect it will get much worse in the next couple of months, but I might as well go ahead and get this taken care of. I am going to try to find a company that will not charge too much money for the work, so I guess I should start by searching online a bit and trying to see what I can find out.

I do not really know how much it costs to have a foundation repaired in general, but I am sure that it depends on the house, the cause of the foundation damage, the extent of the damage, and other factors along those lines. I am really not even sure how foundation repairs are typically done, but I guess that probably varies as well. Continue reading

The Perfect Case for My Phone

Anyone who has ever bought an iPhone knows just how crazy expensive they are. Sometimes, some providers will give you one for free, but then you are locked into a contract with it for at least a couple of years. In other cases, your bill increases for that same amount of time, so they really are not free. I wanted to protect mine as soon as I got it because I did not want to have to dish out more money for another one. As soon as I got it, I looked for a water proof case for iPhone online.

I spend a lot of time outside, and there is potential for my phone to get wet regardless of the season. Continue reading

Good Electricians to Fix Air Conditioning Issue

Recently, I paid to have a new air conditioning unit installed in my house, and it seemed like it was going to really work out nicely, because this company quoted us a significantly cheaper price for installing the air conditioning than did the rest of the companies we contacted. Anyway, they made some mistakes, and so I am going to try to look up good electricians in NJ because I need to hire someone to fix the problems that were caused by the contractor that installed the air conditioning unit.

I tried to get the contractor who did the AC to fix the problem, but he came back and did some work for an hour or two, and said it was fixed. But in reality, the problem was still there. Continue reading

Insights for Implementing Environmentally-Friendly Technology Within Developing Nations

I have been a supporter of a shift to green technology, and protecting the environment ever since I was a teenager. I am pretty sure that the world will not meet my personal goals towards protecting our environment within my lifetime, but hopefully we are starting to shift in the right direction. With the signing of the environmental agreement in Paris, I have become interested in its implementation within developing countries. One particular case I’ve been interested in is a green city, that Ronald Chagoury is working to help develop. I do not know much about the guy, but I learned of the project when I ran across some information upon him. The company that he works for is responsible for developing this green city, but I think that he is rather high up in the company. I forget his particular position though, and perhaps it isn’t even relevant here.

Anyway, I want to learn some more project details about this city and learn about the actual technologies that are going into developing it. Continue reading

Working to Expand My Web Page Traffic

I have been looking for a way to increase the internet traffic on a couple of web pages that I am operating. My original goal was to create a secondary source of income which I could use for long term goals. Obviously I would like to get rich, but that would require a lot of effort and time which I can not spare from my day job. I would like to make more money and that requires more traffic. I am looking at things like Gromode growth marketing which promises to do what I want to have done, but of course so far I have no real way to determine whether or not they can deliver on the promises that they make. Continue reading

Custom Candles Offer That Personal Touch to Gifts

Candles are so popular these days. You know they have to be popular when stores devote so much floor and shelf space to displaying them. There is a whole aisle of them in the major department store I shop at. In fact, there are candle stores where that is their primary product. I, however, was wondering about how to get custom candles. You have probably seen those decorative candles that are many layers of many different colors. An artisan cuts them and bends the layers into a beautiful sculpture. I see them at different stores, but I wondered if you could get them custom made.

I found a website that makes custom candles. Continue reading

Learning to Care About Customers

Moving out to New Jersey was certainly an experience that I could never imagine another place having something similar. I was surprised that New Jersey, in a lot of ways, was very much like it was portrayed on that horrible MTV show, Jersey Shore. I didn’t have much of a choice in moving to the area but after a couple of months, it hasn’t been all that bad, I just have to grow more accustomed to the way people behave and think out there. Looking for new services was the hardest part and I found satellite (click here for information) to be more reasonably priced than it had been back home. With my new found desire to save as much money as I can, I made the decision to sign up with DirecTV instead of going with Comcast. I used to work with Comcast and know exactly how terrible of a company that it can be. Continue reading
