I have a bit of a headache right now. Too many kids talking, and I wish that I could get away from them, but I guess I made my own bed when I had so many kids. I wish I could give a couple of them away. But anyway, I am checking out some info on this company that specializes in commercial roof repair in NJ because I want to have a new roof put on this building soon. The building in question is the building that houses the company that I own, which was passed down to me from my father. I thought that it would be easy running the family business, but it has proved to be more of a challenge than I thought.

One of the things that I did not anticipate was the expenses that would have to go into repairing and upgrading the operation. During the final years of my father’s life, he let the business go downhill a bit. It was not because he did not care about it, but rather, that his health was failing and he did not have as much time to devote to it. I wish that he would have just handed it over to me a few years sooner, but he was pretty stubborn, especially when it comes to stuff like this.

But regardless, I want to get these repairs started soon. The most important thing is to get the roof repaired, because it is sagging in a couple places, and I really worry that it might not be very safe. I think the best bet would just be to have the whole thing replaced. It is a pretty old roof anyway, so it probably needed to be replaced anyway, even if it was not sagging in places and such.

My mom is getting pretty old, but she still loves her freedom and her ability to live on her own. It worries me though, a lot of the time, and so I have been trying to think of ways to make sure that my mother is still safe, and that she has a good quality of life. I have thought about a lot of things, and ruled a lot of things off of the list. One idea that still seems promising is hiring a senior companion in Queens to hang out with her and spend some time with her from time to time. (more…)

I’ve finally located the shower doors in Essex County NJ that I’ve been looking for. The shower installed in my home right now was once nice, I promise, but the years haven’t been kind to the glass shower doors. Last week they finally gave in to the wear and tear of time and literally shattered. Thankfully nobody was in the shower at the time or I imagine they would have left the shower after being cut to ribbons by the glass. What a terrible mess to have to clean up but it gave me an opportunity to install a whole new shower that I’ve been eyeing for the past few months.

Maybe the shower could sense my displeasure with it, hah! It was nearly 40 years old anyways and was in need of some serious TLC that I was just unwilling to give it. So I’ve ripped the entire thing out of the bathroom and have started working on something new. (more…)

Very few parts of our home are as important as the roof. Think of all the important functions it serves. It’s hard to believe that people usually don’t think of the condition of their roofs as much as they should. The only time people tend to become concerned about it is when a problem is discovered such as leak or serious damage has been done to it from a storm. When in comes to fixing and maintaining a roof system such as one made from clay roof tile, a roofing contractor in NYC can usually offer a variety of services, all of which are applicable to the style and material of roof even ones made of clay roofing tiles. Roofs made from clay roofing tile of residential homes regularly need repairs and maintenance in order to protect their investment over a long period of time.

Clay roof tile roof replacement should not be taken lightly. This is tough work and very complicated as far as roofing companies are concerned. Replacing a roof made from clay roof tiles is not as simple as it sounds. The roofing company must check your roof and pay special attention to any inconsistencies. (more…)

Of course we spent a whole lot of money getting the house and it has put us in a bit of a bind. It is just a short term thing, but for now we are really worried about saving money. In fact we are going to do without cable TV for the time being. We have a cheap internet deal, but it stinks to be honest and I am not sure I will not cave and go to something better. I am thinking about this place http://direct-satellite-tv.com/direct-tv/ which seems to offer a pretty inexpensive deal on the satellite service from Direct TV. (more…)

There are at least four widely used social media management applications now available. You can even click here for Instagram followers! Each claim to offer everything you need. But in practice, it does not quite work out that way. You need to cherry pick which of the functions you want from each application. So set out here are the functions from each applications that can work well to manage all of your social media activity. And why not extend your footprint and cherry-pick, with various tools? This also stops you from too much reliance on one application provider. Plus it gives you the all-important patient spread of programmed tweeting, which always needs a prudent approach to avoid the dreaded Twitter De-Activation.

So let’s look at a couple of these! Tweetadder let’s you program Twitter direct messages but their real point of difference is a search for multiple targets to follow, based on the keywords that you select. Some great geekery into the Twitterland API gets you thousands of targets. Then you can program how and when you follow, at what daily levels. There can be a temptation to create a huge target list unless you are really limited with your keywords. (more…)

Metal roofs are the latest in roofing choices. After I decided that I needed roof repair in NYC, I went with a metal roof. Popularity is due to a variety of reasons, but one is they are warranted for at least 50 years. These roofs are high quality and need very little upkeep. There is no comparison between traditional asphalt roofs and metal roofs. The cost upfront is higher for a such roof, but they last much longer than the average 15 years of asphalt roofs. Metallic roofs also withstand the weather, such as high winds and heavy rains as well as being strong enough to hold heavy snow. Longevity and durability are just two reasons on the side of putting on a metal roof, such as those found at Michigan Metal Roofing.

Another bonus to these roofs is the lowered insurance rates and lowered energy bills. (more…)

I need to figure out where I can find a plumber in Morris County NJ and fix a pretty severe plumbing problem that I am experiencing. It is pretty annoying, and I do not even know what is going on. But basically, the sink it really stopped up, and I can’t get any water to drain down it, but in conjunction with that, whenever I run the dishwasher, it causes water fro the sink to enter the washing machine somehow. I am not sure how that would work, but it is rather disgusting, given the current circumstances.

I wonder if my plumbing is just messed up and things are not connected the way they should be. (more…)

I am trying to resist the urge to do something that is intentionally lame. If you spend any time watching Cable TV you have probably seen a lot of these sorts of commercials. They work on a very simple theory. It is not really important for you to enjoy a commercial, that is not a huge factor in how effective it is. The big thing is that you are going to have to stop people from ignoring your message. The way to do that is easy, you do something that is totally brilliant and that wins them over. They are enthralled and every person you pass on the street is repeating you catch phrase. Well that would be awesome if I could do that. However it is a lot easier to just be intentionally annoying and come up with something that people would remember because it was incredibly irritating.

Here we have rapping car dealers and rapping people who buy junk cars. Neither one of them can rap to save their lives, but that is the whole idea. I suspect that if they were good rappers it would probably be more like background noise to the ordinary person than this crap is. I do not want to do that, but it is the easy way out. In fact the client knows this. He does not know the science behind it, which I have read in a bit of details, but he knows from experience that these sorts of ads stick with you. He was talking about his nephew, who actually thinks he can rap. Of course he and I both knows that it is comically bad, but we know that it could be just as effective being comically bad as it would be if he were able to rap like Jay Z.

I create unique artwork for people. I have been doing this for years, and I have made a comfortable living from it. When the gallery that displayed my pieces closed suddenly, I was left with two choices. Either find another gallery in the region, or simply go into business for myself. Since I was losing money from their commissions, I decided to see if I could manage on my own. I wanted to mainly do this online since I don’t want the hassle of a shop. I set up a Twitter account and then I decided to buy Twitter followers at http://buytwitternow.net after reading an article about how online success comes in the forms of high numbers, which means followers.

I am known in the area, so I already had hundreds of people in this area alone start to follow me on my new Twitter account. (more…)

I know this guy who is a lineman for stream energy in jacksonville and he knew that I have been looking around for a bigger piece of the sky, pretty much looking for something like ten acres at the least and more if I can afford to pay for it. I am thinking that I want to do a bit of hobby farming. I figure I can fence in the whole place, put up a barn and a greenhouse or two, then buy myself an old compact tractor. I do not need a really big and expensive tractor, at any rate that seems like a pretty good waste of money when you can probably find a used one that will do the job well enough. (more…)

I am starting to develop wrinkles, and it might be due to my vanity, but I am going to try to hold onto my beauty for as long as possible. I do not intend to go to any great lengths, like having plastic surgery. That seems to be like going a bit too far, even for someone such as myself. But I have been checking out www.chelseaclinic.com.sg to see if I could learn more about the treatments that they have available, and in particular, I am mostly interested in the treatments that are available to reduce wrinkling, or to get rid of wrinkles that have already appeared.

I was once a model, and once it began to be hard for me to find work, that is when I began to realize that I was starting to get old. It was very painful at first, and I went through a period of time where I was drinking a lot of alcohol, in order to cope with the fact that my beauty was starting to fade. (more…)

I remember when I was in college and I was reading about the way that Afghan women were being treated. This was in the early 1990s and it was really hard for me to go and spend time with the people that were going to go over there for missions for religion and tell them what was going on. They thought that it was safe but according to the article, it was not. I knew a web site like http://www.gr8speech.com was really great to show that women in that country are not as oppressed as they once were, there were a lot of them that were getting a great education and they were getting a first hand look at what it was to go to a store for themselves.

I’ve been looking for home insurance on my new house lately and while I have had some luck, it was this site that gave me the best information so far (just click here if you’re curious). It’s not easy finding home insurance it seems – I mean, it’s easy to find it, but it’s hard to find a provider that is worth it. I was with Nation Wide for some time before they decided to stop accepting payments online. I was absolutely blown away by this decision; what kind of company in a modern, digital world would be capable of something like that?

It made me leave them, in fact. (more…)

For us Americans, it’s the time of the year where we are packing our bags, or the family is, and heading off for vacation. As a country with some of the highest work hours in the global community, we earn this time of the year in a way that most working individuals in foreign countries just can’t understand. I decided that I would head to Europe this time around, with Bristol specifically in mind, so it was only natural that I would look into renting a Bristol minibus hire! What’s a better way to tour a place than having your very own minibus? I can’t imagine what else it would be myself but I’ve never been credited with having the most imaginative mind. It’s rare for us Americans to be able to head out to Europe as most of us prefer to stay here within the safe boundaries of our old red, white and blue.

It’s a shame that in a post-9/11 world that we have become so fearful of the greater global community around us. (more…)
