Dad Came to the Realization That It’s Important to Keep Learning

Ever since I was a child, I’ve had an interest in politics. This seemed so odd to my friends back in elementary school and high school. I enjoy learning about what goes on in our country. I have always thought that the country would be better off if more people paid attention and took the time to learn about how our government works. For instance, I try to read up a little each day on Trump news as well as other important things that are going on so that I can make sure that I keep up with it. It is sad to me that my own family does not do that very often.

The last time that I went home, my dad was raving about different things going on in the political world. I listened intently, and then every once in awhile. I would ask him to elaborate more on the things that he was upset about. Continue reading

I Wanted to Stop Paying Rent and Own Something of My Own

I bought a really nice prefabricated home. I really wanted something larger, but my budget couldn’t handle anything larger than what I purchased. But it was easy to have custom mirrors in Somerset County NJ made for my new place. I had them put on one of the walls in the living room and in two of the bedrooms. The mirrors add so much visual space in each of the rooms, which kept me from needing me to pay a lot of money to actually purchase a larger place. This is just one of the decorating tips that I learned from reading decorating web pages.

I got tired of living in apartments because I had been living in in leased spaces ever since I left my parent’s house at the age of 18. Continue reading

Monuments for Jewish Grave Site

I am now helping some of my other family members with planning the funeral of my grandfather. It is kind of a sad time for all of us, but at the same time, I try not to dwell on the personal life. He had a long life, and instead, it is better to think about all of the good memories that I had over the years with my grandfather. I would like to get an estimate on costs for Jewish monuments in NJ as if it is possible, then I would like for my grandfather to have more than just the average headstone. He was more than an average person, and in many ways, he was a figure that was larger than life.

He definitely played an outsize role in our family, and influenced the lives of many of my family members, in ways that go beyond any simple explanation. As such, I would really like to honor his memory with something like a memorial, that is going to be a bit grand. Continue reading

A New Spring and Newly Uprooted Trees!

Well, the spring storms got going just when I thought we would be spared a tough stormy season this year. The winds did a lot more damage this year even though they were not as bad as some prior years. I guess it is just our trees in our yard getting older. Two of the biggest elm trees came down. One actually got uprooted. I think digging by the utility companies at the sidewalk and street damaged the root structure on that side weakening it. The wind pulled it up on that side,and calling a tree service in Long Island was necessary to get rid of the two that fell and to trim the rest of the trees in our yard.

We had an oak that was getting too big too. We were going to try and just cut it back as much as possible, but it was better to bring it down. Continue reading

Adding a “Fan” Setting to Our Forced Air HVAC System

We have a furnace and an AC system that is connected to a HEPA filtration system and one of those fancy electrostatic filters. We are not always running the heat or AC, but we did not have a “fan” only option to turn on the forced air blower to take advantage of the high-end filter. It is great when cooking or other odors begin to fill the house. Part of the HEPA system includes ultraviolet and charcoal air filtering. We called our local HVAC repair in NYC to install the needed parts for us to be able to turn on the blower unit to circulate household air through the system when it was too warm for the furnace yet to cool for the AC to run.

How Our Private Community Agreed to Get Our Road Repaved

We live at the end of a private road that’s not owned by the state of New York. We are responsible for maintaining it and keeping it clear of snow in the winter. We have to pay to have trees removed if they fall down too, or we have to do it ourselves. I have been out there in the summer with neighbors patching potholes on our paved road after a harsh winter. We’ve been saving to get it repaved, and it was time for a company that does road paving in Nassau County NY to come out and do the job.

We had to work out an agreement of how we would pay for it. We all have varying lot sizes along the road, so we decided to pay for the road section based on how much property frontage we owned that bordered the road. Continue reading

Planning Your Own Educational Trip

If it’s just for school, for your kids or for the neighborhood kids, it’s nice to have a purposeful educational trip that will surely be enjoyed by the children as well as teach them. Of course there is the usual trip to the museum or the so-so factory, but educational travel doesn’t necessarily end with the destination, one should also consider the preparations as well as the child before you uproot them from their playgrounds.

Who should plan the Trip?

If the trip is an out of school activity, whether organized by you or the neighborhood parents, there should always be somebody or a group of people willing to dedicate a snippet of their time to organizing, everything, destination, transportation, food, lodgings (if any) as well as the children involved.

What to Bring

A pack list is also essential before a trip. Here are a few things that should be in your or your child’s bag when you go on an educational trip.

– Snacks –there should be lots of drinks and walk foods that you can eat even while walking.

– First aid kit – an accident can easily happen, a small trip or a scratch should be mended easily. A medicine pack can also be handy for parents who develop headaches, or for children with stomach upset.

– Extra clothes – children are very active, and sometimes even parents can be over-active, so it is necessary that both bring a set of clothes for those unexpected spills.

– Walkie talkie – If your child can handle it, a walkie-talkie or a cellular phone can be very useful if he gets lost.

– Name tag – Attach a name tag to his shirt or to his bag containing your contact number (without a name) so that whoever finds him can contact you.

– One of his favorite toys – A good thing to distract a child when he gets uneasy during travel would be one of his favorite toys.

– Wipes and tissue- For that easy cleanup whenever you need it.

When you get there

Fall in line, and make travel buddy’s of two or three; the one buddy should be responsible for the other so as to prevent anyone getting left behind. This is best done with kids who don’t normally play together so they can bond and get to know each other more.

On the trip home

Encourage sleeping; children after a long walk can get cranky when tired, so bring some milk with you so they can sleep through the trip home.

Can Anyone Ever Figure out All the Rules to Fashion on a Global Scale?

I like to wear athletic footwear even though I am not an athlete. At least there is no stigma associated with wearing a nice pair of high-quality tennis shoes even if you have never even picked up a tennis racket. I see that athletic footwear is popular in other countries too. I was reading a tenis Nike article, which was an article about Nike tennis shoes for women. Google translate sure doe open up a world of reading beyond the single native language of English that I know.

Anyway, I saw that there is the fashion and the function of athletic footwear in other countries too. We have it here. There are certain colors that your wear with certain clothing the same as here. Continue reading

My Spouse is Really Happy That I Took Action

I kept wondering why more things can’t be easier when you have a busy life and don’t want to share every little thing about yourself? I really didn’t realize that getting older would cause disfunction in my intimate life, and it was frustrating that I felt pressured to see a doctor, so I didn’t. Instead, I went online and found australiakamagra.com for help instead. I decided to give the tablets I learned about there a try, and I can say that I’m pretty good that I did. I didn’t know what to expect, but I am always hopeful about these things.

I am aware that I will more than likely have something like cancer or a heart attack one day, just as every other person on the planet will as well. But those things are not embarrassing to me. Those are things that I feel that I can discuss with a doctor, even though those are scary things. But when it comes to disfunction in your personal and very intimate life, I feel far less comfortable talking to anyone about it. That is something that I found myself just hoping would get better all by itself, but it didn’t.

When I made my wife cry by stating that it was no big deal and I didn’t want to talk to anyone about it. I realized that I was letting me own embarrassment cause a problem for her. This was a clear sign that I needed an actual solution. When I got my tablets in the mail, I wave them in the air and said that I was ready to try them! She agreed that I should, and we were both pleased to see that they worked perfectly. Now, we are both happy, and I don’t have to talk to anyone outside of our relationship about it at all!

A New Roof My Newest House Project

I flip houses for a living. When there is one where I see a lot of potential, my bargaining side comes out. There are a lot of things I have to take into consideration, because some places are just not worth it, no matter how cheap of a price I get for it. If it costs pennies on the dollars, but it costs me hundreds of thousands of dollars to fix, then it’s usually not worth it. For a house I looked at the other day, I had to consider roof installation in Brooklyn NY.

The foundation and structure of the house are really solid, and there is so much potential there. Continue reading
