They Helped Me Navigate Facebook Ads

Thanks to a company called Algorhytm, I finally figured out a way to navigate the mystifying experience that is Facebook Ads. Anyone ever try to figure this service out? If you manage to avoid all the pitfalls and roadblocks they’ve set up, and can actually get your ads to run without getting them pulled for a thousand minor reasons, you can actually get to the point where you might make some money for your business. You could even possibly get some traffic through them! I know it sounds crazy, but it can happen. Yes, I’m being sarcastic.

I spent months and months trying to get these things to work only to get a ban or a time out because I violated some archaic rule they decided to enforce today. Read the rest of this entry »

A Fitness Facility That Rivals Local Gyms

I found this place by clicking on a community website and seeing some comments about a luxury apartment complex here in town that is an awesome place to live. I was intrigued because I had been knocking around the idea of getting out of my lease at my old apartment and wanted to find a better place to live. I recently got a promotion and a great raise at work and suddenly found myself awash in money. I knew I could afford to upgrade my living arrangements and take advantage of a luxury apartment complex. I had to do research first, however.

I have to say I was immediately impressed with the facilities. When I went over for a look see, I was even more impressed. Read the rest of this entry »

It Doesn’t Get Any Better Than This

When I graduated from college, I moved back home with my parents so I could figure out what my next move was going to be. I really love the area where they live, and I knew that I would be lucky to be able to find a job here as well. It took me nearly a month of pounding the pavement, but I found a great job with a company that has an excellent reputation. I knew that I was going to have to look at apartments for rent in Kingsport TN next because my job was nearly 30 minutes from where my parents live, and I just did not want to be on the road that much nearly every single day.

I decided to look at apartments closest to where I work, which is how I found Country Shores. It is a really nice complex that is only a few minutes drive each way for me, plus they have a lot of amenities that I was looking forward to using. Read the rest of this entry »

How I Handle My Anxiety of Visiting the Dentist

I don’t like going to the dentist, but I don’t like toothaches and the thought of having an extraction even less. I schedule my next appointments before I leave the office, and I do not make excuses for not keeping one. I go and get my exams and cleanings done on time. I have a nice dentist. You can click here to see the office website of where I go. There are two dentists there. I am not a fan of drills, needles or pliers going anywhere near my mouth, so I practice excellent oral hygiene and keep up on protecting my teeth for the long term.

I have been through one root canal and one extraction followed by a dental implant. The procedures were not painful, but my anxiety was through the roof. Even though I did great through those two procedures, I am not wanting to go through a third. I had neglected my dental care before, and that is what lead to needing the root canal, the one extraction and dental implant and that was enough for me for a lifetime. Keeping up on my dental visits helps me to not need to experience the dental procedures that I am afraid of. Read the rest of this entry »

Upgrade to a Luxury Home

Through one random selection of numbers, I was able to win a major lottery jackpot. The lottery changed my life for the better. Not only could I afford to have anything I wanted, but I could also finally move out of my old home and into something more luxurious. Finding a luxury home is as easy is realizing that the website is here, right in the front of any search engine. I found the website of a person who specializes in real estate for luxury property, and look at some of the listings featured on the website.

I’m a bit indecisive when it comes to making important decisions. I had a hard enough time deciding whether I should pick my own lottery numbers or let the machine pick them. When it came to deciding on the home I should buy, I was stumped, because there were so many good choices. I tried to narrow things down by thinking about what I didn’t want in my home, but that didn’t even work, because I wanted pretty much everything. Read the rest of this entry »

Great Place for a Downsizing Couple

It was really only a matter of time before the wife and I started looking for an apartment for rent in Las Vegas. After our youngest son finally went off to college, both of us looked around at the large home in which we raised a large family for the last thirty years and we both knew it was time to move into something smaller and more manageable. Both of us are getting up in years, and it’s just too hard to keep everything up. The yard work alone is tiresome, and awful too in the hard heat of the summer.

My wife’s health is another consideration. Read the rest of this entry »

A Vegas Apartment for Us

I thought it was going to take me a long time when I started looking at apartments in Las Vegas. I wanted something that I knew was going to be hard to find, but the kicker was that I couldn’t even describe it to anyone so they could help me. I just knew that I would know instantly as soon as I saw the apartment that was meant to be mine. Well, I was both right and wrong at the same time. I knew instantly as soon as I saw the apartment at Lyric, but it did not take me as long as I thought it would to find it.

I knew that I wanted a luxury apartment, so I started my search off with those kinds of complexes. The first one was falsely advertised as one, but Lyric definitely fit the bill. I held my breath as I looked at the floor plans. I liked everything I saw up to that point, but I knew that the floor plan for the apartment had to be just as appealing as the community features. I didn’t have to hold my breath for long, because the two bedroom apartment that I found is perfect. Read the rest of this entry »

You Can’t Beat It for Business Shipping

I used to send all my kargo through the national post until I got sick of lost packages. Moreover, I got sick of hearing the customers complaining about the lost packages. Even worse was what the packages looked like when they were lost for some time but then magically turned up back at my business or at the customer’s place. I would see packages that looked like someone drove over them in a car or they were open and missing something inside. After putting up with this for some time, I resolved to find a private shipper to help me out.

I found a company online that works hard to make me and my customers happy. They have a program specifically for businesses and it is pretty no nonsense as far as I am concerned. You can talk with them if you are having problems and they are happy to go out of their way to help. We’ve had a few mix ups from time to time and I can get on the phone and talk to someone right away and the problem is always sorted out in a quick and efficient manner. This never happened with the national post.

They ship all over the place too, and I have yet to find a place in the area where they couldn’t deliver the package. They make it very easy to pay them for their services as well. I can set up the time and method through my computer and there has never been a problem. Their professional drivers are courteous and always on time and seem happy to be working for the company. I just can’t believe I stuck with my previous option for so long. I’ve saved so much time and money with the new company that I can’t believe I didn’t switch earlier.

I Wanted a Great Rate on Insurance

Moving residences can be very difficult, but it can also be extremely easy too, if handled the right way. Even before I moved, I had done my research on the area where I was moving to. Even before stepping foot into my new house, I knew which doctor and dentist I was going to use, and I had also done extensive research on different gulf coast insurance companies. I was going to need to switch my car insurance to a company in Florida, but I also wanted to look into renters insurance too.

I was just renting a house for a couple of years, but there was a chance that I would be hired on permanently. If that is the case, then I will start looking to buy a new house. Read the rest of this entry »

Keep Your Employees Safe from Falls

I never spent much time thinking about roof edge demarcation until I had an employee fall off of a building. He almost died and of course I got sued. I own a roofing company and really I should have known this would be a problem. But up until about two months before the accident, we had only accepted jobs in residential areas working on privately owned homes. There are other techniques we use there to guarantee safety. Those same methods didn’t work when we started taking on jobs on industrial buildings such as warehouses.

With warehouses you simply must have some demarcation equipment that protects employees from tumbling over the edge. I didn’t think about this until the accident and after that happened I resolved to never allow this to happen again. Read the rest of this entry »

Sending the Best Through the Training Process

Putting my employees through training for new managers was one of the best decisions I ever made. The training helps the managers learn what it means to be a leader and how to handle the other employees. When most people think of a manager, they think of someone dull who is just walking around, glancing at everything while the other employees work away. Being a good manager goes beyond that, as the manager has to solve problems on the job and make important decisions about how to make the best use of the employees that are there.

The latest employee to go through manager training did a complete 180 on his personality. It’s like the transformation of a nerd into a powerful superhero. Read the rest of this entry »

Her Favorite Gift Was My Rug

When my grandmother turned 80 years old, we had a huge party for her at her house. Though she was more than twice as old as most of the guests, she was able to endure the long party better than some others. She is quite active and people are surprised she is 80 years old, as she doesn’t look it or act it. I wanted to get her something really special for this milestone birthday, and I knew just the gift. I had been looking at antique rugs in Melbourne for my own house, and I knew that she would appreciate one of the rugs for her own home.

My dining room is hardwood floor, and it looks really nice but was still missing something. Read the rest of this entry »

Finding a Better Apartment That Costs the Same As Where We Were Living

We had lived at the same place for five years. Our apartment was okay when we moved in. When we moved there the carpeting was not new, and neither were any of the appliances. That was okay because the rent was good. The carpeting was looking really old after another five years, and the landlord would not do anything. On a whim I started looking at new Forestville MD apartments that were closer to where we worked, and I found a place that the rent was within just a few dollars of what we were paying. Plus, the place looked really nice.

We have the same days off, so my wife and I along with our young daughter took a ride over to see an apartment at Parkland Village Apartments. We were very impressed from the moment we saw the place. The grounds were kept nice, there was a playground and the apartment had large closets. Read the rest of this entry »

A Toothache and a Filling Changed My Approach in Keeping Dental Appointments

I brush and floss at least twice per day. I use a mouthwash at least twice a day too. However, I have been a little lacking in keeping my regular dental exams at my dentist in Aurora Colorado. That is entirely my fault. I even have insurance that covers the exam and the cleanings. I just put it off because, like so many other people, I am busy. I just did not put a priority on my dental care that included preventative checks.Well, now I wish I had been more diligent in keeping my semi-annual dental appointments for an exam and cleanings. I ended up with a toothache because of a cavity that was forming.

It started to bother me a little when I ate something sweet. Then it started to hurt when I was not eating. Then it went away, and it was not long before it came back with a vengeance. I had to make an emergency appointment with my dentist in Aurora Colorado as I was hurting quite a bit. I am very fortunate that a filling worked, and I did not need a root canal.

Switching Was Worth the Savings

I was so happy when my husband and I finally paid off our house. It was not due to be paid off for another six years, so it was a major accomplishment for us. Once we did pay it off, I told him I wanted to look for the best home insurance in Florida because I just felt that we had been overpaying on our home insurance through the bank. Now that we were in the free and clear, we were able to go with a different company if we decided to.

I looked at quite a few and got some quotes from several of them. There was one in particular that I really liked, and it was not just because the quote was really good. I liked their customer service, which can make or break a relationship with any company that I do business with. Read the rest of this entry »

The Perfect Workout Program for Me

When I started reading different T25 reviews, I actually felt that this was a workout program that I might be able to do on my own. I am a pretty busy person, but I was not willing to sacrifice my health over a lack of time. Instead, I just started looking for a program that would complement my time rather than interfere with it. I had heard about the T25 mainly because of the time involved, which is 25 minutes per day. That is something that I can easily do, especially in the privacy of my own home.

I just wanted to make sure that it was a program that I would be well suited for. I already get enough cardio with other things that I do, so I was happy to see that this was mostly about building muscle and losing a couple of unwanted pounds. I also read a good bit of information about the person who designed this program, and to say I am impressed with him would be an understatement. I knew that I was putting my fitness in the right hands, and that was all I needed to go ahead and purchase the program. Read the rest of this entry »

Definitely Improved My Golf Game

Finding the best lob wedge is just a part of this crazy game we call golf. Golf, as everyone knows, seems like an easy game. There is a club, a ball, and a hole. Your job is to get the ball into the hole with as few swings as possible. It only takes playing the game once to realize how complex it actually is. There are so many variables at play, from the clubs you use to the course you are playing on to the effects of weather on your shots. Even your swing can hinder your game if it isn’t up to snuff.

I have an extremely poor swing that often finds me putting my ball into some difficult part of the course. If there is a sand trap on the course, you can bet my fall will end up in it. A group of trees just off the course? I’ll be over there trying to get the ball on the green at some point. That is where a lob wedge comes into play. You need this type of club to clear these various obstacles. They’re shaped in such a way as to elevate the ball to clear a hazard or other obstacle.

I needed an effective lob wedge because what I had wasn’t cutting it. I wasn’t getting the necessary lift. So I went online to see if I could find something better. Obviously, I knew I would find something better, but I didn’t want to pay an arm and a leg for a new club. I’m not a professional golfer with pockets full of money. I did find a site that helped me compare the various clubs and all of them were priced well within my spending range. After using the club I bought from them, I can definitely say my game has improved greatly!

My Weight Loss Took a Lot of Muscle with It

I have really let myself go and did not even realize it. I used to be tremendously stronger. The thing is that I have never been an athlete or incredibly strong, but I was very surprised at how much strength I have lost when I happened across a dumbbell I used to easily curl and could not curl it even once now. I have spent a few years at a sedentary job after surgery and weight loss. Well, I lost a lot of muscle too. I was in desperate need of help from a professional strength and conditioning coach to help me out.

There was no way I was doing any intense physical training right off the bat. Read the rest of this entry »

When Medical Bills Are Too Much

I needed to employ the services of a Sacramento bankruptcy lawyer recently due to unpaid medical bills. People make a lot of noise about how Obamacare has essentially saved the entire medical system and thus also protects the patient from being buried under a mountain of medical bills. That sounds great on paper, but in the real world it’s not working. My case is a prime example in that I couldn’t afford the insurance and wasn’t eligible for subsidies. The insurance was super expensive and the premiums were in the five figures. Sure enough I got hit with cancer.

Cancer doesn’t care about your bills. The treatments alone make you cry when you see how much they cost. The hospital and oncologist, bless their hearts, reduced the bills by a tremendous amount. My friends also helped out by organizing various dinners and such that raised some money. But I could barely work and the bills kept coming in. Read the rest of this entry »

The Correct Way to Use P2P

The legality of free p2p file sharing software has always been in question, and the p2p networks (see; Piratebay) have been in the news again recently: when are they ever out of it! I have made my views known about those that make a fortune from us while breaking the law themselves with their drug-taking and other anti-social activities, but what exactly is the legal situation? Peer to peer file sharing is not illegal. That is fact! A few friends sharing files online between themselves is no more illegal than them swapping CDs or DVDs. Where the confusion arises is the scale. At what scale of sharing does it become illegal, rather than just people swapping their belongings. Read the rest of this entry »
