My mom has lived in the same house for most of her adult life. It is a nice house, and there are a lot of amazing memories there both for my brother and myself as well as our own children. She is on a fixed budget, which is why my brother and I take care of the maintenance upkeep for her home. When the big maple tree fell during a storm, we knew that we needed to hire a company that does roof repair in Brooklyn NY because it damaged a section of the roof.
We can handle small things like fixing a squeaky door or painting a room for her, but we knew that this was best left to the professionals. Continue reading They Fixed Mom’s Damaged Roof
It was never my intention to move down here permanently. I came down here for a six month contract, but things worked out so that I decided to stay. The original contract was working to build a facility for reliant energy. They liked my work and my style of management. Apparently they needed some one to take over a job and they had not liked the last guy’s style. I do not really like to be yelled at and so I accord the people under me the same respect. From what I have heard this previous supervisor was a real yeller and they think he ruined his health from being too tightly wound. So they call me Mr Softee or some such thing because I just talk to people. Continue reading Found a New Life in Houston
I got this piece of land as a wedding gift, about five years ago. At the time it was probably worth a couple thousand dollars, although it is more now. The developer had not put in the road at that time, so the land was not worth too much. I cleared it myself, borrowed my buddy’s bulldozer and dump truck a couple of times. Pretty much cleared all the trees that droped leaves save for a half dozen red oak trees. Right now I am planning the house, looking to find home security installer who does a bit of home automation as well. Already decided that I am going to wire the place up with a system to help me save on the power bill. Continue reading Working on the New Floor Plan Now
It still seems like a dream when I say it, but I am going to the prom with the girl of my dreams. I kind of used the word ‘dream’ a bit much in that sentence, but it is really how I feel. I have had a crush on this girl since middle school, and I have dreamed about being with her, but I got to the point where I never thought it would happen. I am checking out http://www.dreamnightlimousine.ca/ right now because I want to rent a limo for the night of prom and really make it a great night, and one to remember.
I still don’t know how I managed to work up the nerve to ask her to the prom. I am pretty sure she knew that I have had a crush on me, but I did not think that she was into me. Continue reading Best California Limo Rental Prices
I’m very happy that my daughter was able to get involved with a website that helped to conquer bullying. My daughter was a freshman in high school, and she was very involved in student affairs. She realized that bullying was a very big problem in her high school and she wanted to do something to stop it She and some of her friends decided that they would make a web site to help the victims of bullying, and also to stop bullying from being something that was commonplace in high schools. My daughter is a very caring individual, and she absolutely hates to see anybody abused or mistreated, so she rarely wanted to do all that she could to help people to stop bullying.
She was surprised by all of the responses that she got to her web page. She’d put an ad in the high school paper, and she also put an ad in the junior high paper. Continue reading The Website That Helped to Stop Bullying
The educational system in America is flawed in so many ways. Children are sitting in overcrowded classrooms, extra activities like art and music are being cut and materials in some schools are outdated and in desperate need of repair. Adults talk about these problems all the time without being able to find the solutions they are looking for, but what would happen if you asked a group of kids their opinions about how to fix their schools? When the question was posed to a group of ten to sixteen year olds, some interesting ideas came about. Kids say that they want their teachers to have fun in the classroom. While we certainly need our teachers to teach reading and writing, we also need them to keep the kids engaged and eager to learn. The only way to do this is to make the learning process fun.
