There Were Just Too Many Trees

I knew that when my husband and I bought our new house last year that we were going to have to make some decisions about the outside. The property had a lot of potential if you could see past the junky look of it. The previous owners had taken excellent care of the interior, but they had pretty much ignored the outside. I knew that we could do a lot of the work ourselves, but I also knew that I would need to consult with a company that handles Nassau County tree removal because there were just way too many trees close to the house.

Since they had not been taken care of in so long, it actually looked like a small jungle the closer you got to the house. I have nothing against trees at all. In fact, I think that every nice sized yard looks better with trees in it. However, this was just overkill. I knew that a lot of the trees were probably not even healthy because they had been neglected for so long. Continue reading “There Were Just Too Many Trees”


This is My Dream Condo

I did an online search for condos for downtown Toronto because that is the only place I wanted to consider. I had recently come into money because of the sale of a book I had written, and I was excited about moving to Toronto. I grew up there when I was a child, and I never stopped missing it even though I have lived in some pretty fabulous cities since. There is just no where on earth that can begin to compare, which is why I wanted to buy a condo there.

I was already commissioned to write two more books, and my editor told me that the publisher was hoping to have many more from me down the road. Continue reading “This is My Dream Condo”


I Now Have Longer and Thicker Lashes

I follow several people on a social media platform simply because they are beautiful. I know that probably sounds awful, but it is no different than following your favorite singer, your favorite football player, or even a favorite politician. For me, I love everything about beauty, and I know that I can get the best tips from these women since they obviously know a lot more about beauty than the rest of us. When one of them told a group of us that she used a Careprost eyelash serum to create her long and thick lashes, I actually felt some hope for myself.

I have, or rather had, the thinnest eyelashes ever. I had tried different mascaras but none of them really helped with giving me the appearance of fuller lashes. I thought that I was just doomed to have non-existent lashes, but that was only until I found out that she had super thin lashes as well. Continue reading “I Now Have Longer and Thicker Lashes”


We Are Still Looking for a New House

I started out pretty optimistic that we would find something within our budget, but the truth is that we probably need a bigger budget or to lower our expectations. We found a place that we really loved in a neighborhood called Toronto Junction, but it is not really possible under the current circumstances. We just do not have the money for such a place, although it really does not seem as though they should cost as much as they do. At any rate the area is really about as good as it could be for the two of us. Since we work in widely separated parts of the metropolitan area it is necessary for us to find a central location where neither of us has to commute across the entire width of the area. This is pretty much perfect for the two of us in that respect, or at least it is as close to perfect as we are likely to find. Continue reading “We Are Still Looking for a New House”


Flowers for My Wife and Daughter

My wife and I had been preparing for the birth of our daughter for nearly the entire pregnancy. It was our first time to go through this, and we wanted to do everything right. I was planning on stopping my business travels when she was two weeks away from her due date, and I had even already located a florist in Melbourne to be on standby for the big day, because I planned on ordering the most brilliant bouquet of flowers for my wife on that very special day. When you plan things out though, more often than not, it doesn’t go quite as planned.

I was on my final business trip, and we both felt confident that all was fine. Continue reading “Flowers for My Wife and Daughter”

We Switched to a Better Brand of Pet Food

My husband and I don’t have children, so our “fur children” get lots of attention. I was confused about what type of food to get for them until I read some very informative Rachael Ray cat food reviews that other pet owners had written after they began feeding it to their own cats. I had been wanting to get mine on better food for awhile, but was mostly new to actually paying attention to what goes in their food. In fact, I barely understand what foods I should be eating! But learning about cat food was pretty easy to do.

When I learned many years ago that I couldn’t have children, I was nervous to go home from my doctor appointment to announce what I had just learned to my husband. He had always wanted children. He told me that long before I married him. Continue reading “We Switched to a Better Brand of Pet Food”

Question We Should Ask Our Insurance Agent

When most people think of insurance, they think about health insurance and car insurance. We should all take a closer look at our insurance needs and protect ourselves as much as possible by asking questions about insurance. One thing we all probably overlook is what kind of coverage do we need for our children that are going off to college for the first time this fall.

When they are preparing and packing to go to college they are taking many items that are worth a lot of money such as computers, printers, cell phones and tvs. What happens if these items are stolen or damaged? I don’t know the answer to that either. What about health insurance? Are they still covered by their parents’ current plan? Another one I don’t know the answer to. And if they have a car, will their auto insurance coverage need to be changed? Yet another answer I do not know. These are all important questions that need to be asked. I plan to call my insurance agent tomorrow morning to get some answers. I don’t want to get caught with inadequate coverage.

Even though I’m going to call my local insurance agent tomorrow, I thought it would be a good idea to do a little bit of research on this subject. I was extremely surprised to find out the many different types of insurance out there. Did you know that you can purchase wedding and ring insurance? I didn’t know that. This can be tailored to provide coverage for almost any aspect of your wedding including the wedding dress, the wedding parties dresses and tuxedoes, non-refundable deposits and even the wedding rings in case they are lost or stolen. It can cover just about anything except for getting cold feet and calling it off.

The Reason I Switched Insurance Companies

I was not happy with the company that was providing me with the different types of insurance that I have. I have multiple policies because insurance is just needed. I was using one company for my homeowners policy, my car insurance as well as my life insurance. I was given a good rate, so that was not why I was not happy. The customer service was just not good at all. I had to call back several times to get answers, and I finally decided that I was going to look into other Somerville insurance companies. Continue reading “The Reason I Switched Insurance Companies”

Highly Accurate Equipment That Works Great for Us

I’m happy to announce that we’re looking at automatic liquid filling machines due to the fact that our paint business has really taken off. I can remember just starting out and we’d sit around hand filling buckets with paint and then we would load up the car and take them to the speciality paint store in town. We’d sell a few here and there and considered that a success. It’s actually not hard to make paint, and I’m pretty good at it, and we make the best enamel paint you’ve ever seen. It makes rooms glow it’s so good.

Then one of those house shows on television happened to showcase our product. Continue reading “Highly Accurate Equipment That Works Great for Us”

We Both Order Our Walnut Snacks Online Now

I am the type of person to buy as many things as I can online. I don’t like going into brick and mortar stores if I don’t have to. I realize it is a necessity for some things, like milk and eggs, but other things, it is not. I can get great deals online, and often it is cheaper for me because the online market place is just a lot more competitive. That is why I went online to look for a company that sells walnut snacks. I had never had walnuts as a regular snack before, but that was before my friend started bringing some of her nutty snacks into work.

They all tasted good, but the walnut ones were my favorite. They say your taste buds change every seven years or so, and I am thinking that must be true because I had never craved a walnut snack like I was these ones. Continue reading “We Both Order Our Walnut Snacks Online Now”

Just Getting a New Shower Wand Helped Ease My Aches and Pains

I like a nice soothing shower. I like those waterfall shower heads, but I also like to be able to switch over to a shower wand. I especially like ones that have high pressure and different wand settings to give an aqua massage to my shoulders that bother me quite a bit. The warm water feels great anytime of year, but it is even better when it is cold outside. It is like rinsing the pain and stiffness down the shower drain. I feel very relaxed after a shower that has massage settings for the water output.

The waterfall shower head gives a high volume of water that feels great overall. Continue reading “Just Getting a New Shower Wand Helped Ease My Aches and Pains”

Great on the Go Vape for Wax

After moving to Colorado, it didn’t take long for me to pick up a b-buzzn for my on the go vaping. It’s a legal state, after all, and that really was one of the reasons I decided to move out here. I run my own internet based company, so I don’t have to worry about a list of rules from an employer concerning what I can do or not do in my personal life. I moved out here because frankly trying to keep up the habit in a state where it’s illegal is getting more dangerous by the day.

I had some paraphernalia I can use at home, but I didn’t have anything that would easily fit in a pocket. Imagine trying to lug around some huge bong when you’re going out for a walk or to the local park! It just doesn’t work. Continue reading “Great on the Go Vape for Wax”

We Are Working to Get a Big Contract

When you are starting out there are only big contracts, because they all count for you when you have nothing on your slate. That was how it used to be for me and then I got to be the top salesman here. This is really different and the boss is talking about hiring a presentation design service to help out with the powerpoint presentation that we are going to use on this one. It is a really big deal, since the parts we are selling would be for the Ford Motor Company and it would be a really massive amount of work. In truth we would have to build an entire production facility which would not do anything else, although there is a lot of time for that stuff. The parts will not be shipped for a year and a half. We would have plenty of time to build the structure and then purchase the machinery. Continue reading “We Are Working to Get a Big Contract”

Our New Puppy is Really Awesome

We have gotten the most adorable little puppy that you have ever seen and the first thing that we had to was to learn the answer to a food safety question. So we went to the internet to learn can dogs eat blueberries safely. Of course Mickey is always in the fridge and he loves all sorts of fruits. So we found him and the puppy in the kitchen floor, both of them eating out of the same container on the kitchen floor. We took pictures, but then we got to wondering if that was bad. In fact when you look on the web they saw that berries are a great treat for a dog. They recommend that you give them frozen berries as dog treats. Continue reading “Our New Puppy is Really Awesome”
