My friends and I wanted to do a charity stream for cancer research. We had the idea of playing games for a week straight, and we would rotate players out so that the stream could keep running all day without us losing sleep. Since we had never streamed before, we didn’t have a lot of people to view the stream, nor did we have a lot of people to tell about the stream. We decided to use a website called streamm.co to buy some viewers for our channel. The bought viewers would cause more people to come to the stream and get them to donate to our cause.
In the first few hours of running the stream, the bought viewers did their magic. We had well over $10,000 in donations, and this was constantly going up at a steady stream. read more
We were ready to move into the new house when we realized that the pipes had frozen up. Unfortunately for us it was something that we were stuck. It happened to be that my brother in law knew a guy who does drain cleaning in white plains ny and he told me that this guy would probably fix the pipes too. Of course it is not precisely the same thing, but however he was in fact able to do the work. It is about the same thing apparently. A plumber does both of those thing a lot of the time and in fact the guy fixed it up in very little time. read more
This does not really bother me too much, but I do not have an 80 thousand dollar sports car like my boss does.
Of course it is a convertible and he likes to leave the top down when the weather is nice.
We have around two dozen Canada Geese who hang out in the parking lot all of the time.
Ok out of point
One of them did his business on the driver’s seat of this shiny red sports car. We have been trying to figure how do you get rid of Canada Geese?
I guess you need bird control in NJ, or some company that can do that for you.
We have tried a few things, mostly stuff that makes loud noises. It sends them scurrying away, but after some period of time they always come back to the parking lot. It does not seem to make that much sense to me.
Pond and Food
It is not like this is a place where you have a lot of fast food places and there is not an obvious source of food here. There is a pond close by. read more
Lately I am thinking of posting more regularly on my blog. However, I wonder how can I promote those articles. You know I dont want to spend hours writing articles and yet nobody reading them.
I heard using SEO on our sites is a good way to get Google to help promote them. I took the advice and found this article talking about SEO advices. I want to share this SEO optimization post here with you guys. Building backlinks can be easy as dropping our url on a page. Hopefully, I can share about my personal seo posts here.
We do everything in our power to try to spend as little money as possible. This means that my wife and I like to research things in order to do things on our own without any help. But there are times where we simply do not have enough hours in the day and we will then search for someone who can do the work for us at an inexpensive price. We did that recently by paying our neighbor’s teen son to paint our home. That’s why we had to find a real painter in Bergen County NJ recently to fix what the young teen caused a problem with.
Painting is one of those things in life that always looks like it would be so simple to carry out. But then when you try it, you find that it takes a lot of time. And if you are not careful, you can make costly mistakes that take up more of your time to fix. read more
In some ways, Christmas seems so far away. In other ways, I feel like it is just around the corner. Christmas is a very big deal around our house. We end up having lots of food and goodies, hours of watching Christmas specials and several parties where we don’t mind that we can’t carry a tune on some of those memorable festive songs. It is also about making sure we get the best gifts for each other too. I decided to do a search the other day for top Cyber Monday sals for 2015 because I have found that it is a lot safer for me to shop from the comfort of my own home on Cyber Monday rather than face the chaos that Black Friday has become.
My husband and I have six children, so we also have to make sure that we have the best strategy. Otherwise, we not only run out of patience but money too. That is another main reason why I enjoy shopping on Cyber Monday so much. read more
When my Pop’s best friend died, he took it very hard. He had time to prepare himself for it, because it was a long battle with cancer, but that didn’t make it any easier. The two had lived close to one another, and they would often visit and keep each other company. My Pop got very lonely without these visits, and I could tell he was spiraling towards a depression that scared me. The only time he perked up was when I was there, and that had me thinking about senior home care in Brooklyn NY for him.
It seemed that he had accepted his friend’s death, but he was terribly lonely. When I did a search for senior home care, I found exactly what I was looking for when I found Gentle Hands. These wonderful people go to a person’s home and do whatever they can to assist people. Some people may use this service for medical reasons, but they also provide a companion service, which is exactly what my Pop needed. I was able to get a free consultation, which I handled on my own without involving him at first. read more
A very disturbing news report was shown on television a few months ago that really scared me. A young couple had been murdered by a trio of criminals who entered their home while they were sleeping. The criminals were armed with assault rifles and shot at the couple while they were still in their beds. The criminals are still at large to this day, and I don’t think anyone in that neighborhood will ever be the same. This led to me interacting with a click here advertisement for a security company when I saw it on a website.
Although there was no criminal activity in my own neighborhood, I had no idea if there would ever be any, or if the criminals would somehow make their way to my home. read more
I have long said that I do like to have a lot of choices in my life. Whether I am buying a new cable service package, a new car, or even just a new pair of shoes I like to know that there are different options for me out there. If you live in Texas you now have a new option to be able to pick who you want for your power company. The powertochoose is really a great thing, there are a lot of different options for you to look at online. A few years ago, you only had one local choice for your power company and today you have a lot of choices as to who you want to provide you with power to your house or business. read more
We have just gotten to work on how we are going to get the church fixed up and there is a lot of it that we need to do. We have started working on the new roof system. I have talked to about half a dozen roofing contractors in NYC and we are trying to see if we can talk one of them in to doing a good deal with us. We are trying to sell them on the idea that instead of taking a profit off the deal they can give the church a donation which they could obviously write off of their taxes. It is a good theory, but obviously you have to think about how the guy pays his bills. read more
Have you seen those new and very fancy toilets? I had no idea they even existed until a friend of mine remodeled his house. He moved here from Japan, and he told me that in his culture bathrooms are a big deal. He had an electronic toilet. The seat is automatic, and it has a built-in bidet. It was the heated seat that won me over. It gets cold here! I called a plumber in Essex County NJ to see how much it would cost to plumb a small room off from our foyer. All we needed was electrical wiring and plumbing, and the room could easily be a third bathroom. I figured we could add one of those fancy toilets as a conversation piece.
I like things like that. Things that are a little off the wall as far as our culture is concerned. read more
I’ve been working for my father who does basic contracting work for small to medium sized homes. We typically work on installing new bathrooms which means we buy a lot of shower doors in Essex County NJ. It’s not exactly the kind of work that I thought I would be doing now at 30 years old but I have come to appreciate it in some ways. I enjoy working with my hands but at the same time I’m not particularly thrilled about helping improve the bathrooms of clients. I’d rather be doing something else with my talent, if I even have any, but I’m admittedly at a loss as to what I could be doing instead. read more
I started working on this old house at the start of the week, my buddy Andy convinced me that it was going to be a good deal. Of course when I got there it was a pretty hard sell and I was not able to even stand the place until after I found a guy who does drain cleaning in Bergen county. The pipes were backed up and it was an awful mess and just terrible to be in that place . Of course you could not hardly breathe the air in there. The first thing I had to do after the guy fixed the pipes was to air that place out . read more
We moved out to a rural area a couple of years ago because my wife and I wanted to get away from the big city. I had purchased some property here 10 years earlier, and it was our dream to be able to build a home on the property and live in it full time after retirement. We even bought some goats, chickens and some other animals to take care of on the property. We wanted to jump in with both feet. But we ended up needing to purchase some hidden cameras last month because our chickens were slowly disappearing. We wanted to know why.
My wife and myself spent quite a bit of time learning how to care for chickens properly. We bought books on the subject, talked to friends who owned chickens, etc. Then we threw ourselves into building a very sturdy chicken coop. Many of our friends had told us that raccoons, dogs, coyotes and more can bust through a flimsy coop in no time and kill your chickens. read more
I sat down with Coach Mitch and Coach Bell after gym the other day and we started to talk about what they were thinking for football season. Of course I wanted to know where they think they can use me and if I am going to have any chance to get on the field. Last year I just played on special teams, covering kicks mostly. I was thinking that I may try to figure out where to buy shakeology or some other way to pick up muscle mass. It is not easy to figure out exactly where I might be able to play next year, but I need to get a significant bit bigger and stronger if I want to get on the field. We have a whole lot of big guys and we have a lot of fast guys. read more
I am going golfing with my boss in the near future, and I am really worried that I am going to embarrass myself. I tried to get myself out of going on the trip to the golf course with him, but he insisted, and said that he would pay for the round, the booze, and for lunch. I couldn’t turn down such generosity, and so I am going to have to cross my fingers and hope for the best. I am going need to look into discount mens Nike golf shirts because I do not own anything that is suitable to wear to a golf course right now.
That is because, of course, I do not golf. read more
The bottom line is that most people do not realize they have options when it comes to choosing a power company. Sure, many people realize that if they have a serious problem there is competition out there, but it is actually even more than that. Legal requirements have made it easier than ever to switch companies, both in terms of infrastructure and legal options. The bottom line is that while companies have to follow these rules, they still do not want their customers to know about the opportunities. After all, what customer would stay if their research helped them to find they can save money or get better value?
So therefore it is on the customer to learn the options available to them and find out what they can do to improve their setup, if anything. read more
The boss has given me a pretty generous budget and they let me have some of the hand me down type stuff that we do not need. We have a warehouse and if you look around in there you can find a desk and chair with no trouble. Obviously it is likely to look a bit worn out, but this is not going to be on public display. I figure that I need the desk, a computer, a multifunction device with scanner software and a few other things. Of course I am not really going to working out of the house on anything like a full time service. It is going to be like this. read more
When I did an internal audit for one department in my company, I was not happy with what I saw. I thought that there was a lot of waste, so I decided to rectify that. I knew that the first step in this would be to purchase a new parts counting scale. The one the department had been using definitely had seen better days, and quite often it was not used at all because of this. I knew that accuracy was not something that was at the top of everyone’s priority list because of the business that we are in, but I knew that it did matter long term.
That is why I wanted to get an accurate and reliable scale, but it had been years since I had purchased one. I wasn’t even sure if the company was still around! I decided to just start off with a fresh search, and that is how I found the company that I now use to buy all of my scales from. I looked over the different counting scales that they offer, and i was impressed with all of them. read more
There is so much competition out there now for entertainment that cable and satellite TV providers have really had to step up their game as of late. In the past just offering a few basic channels in black and white was considered to be a miracle of technology, but now with hundreds of channels available people are still complaining that there is nothing to watch. Simply put, TV providers have had to continue adding new content in order to compete with other forms of entertainment. The end result can be found at http://www.cable-tv.com/directv/ and comes in the form of low prices and great packages.
The bottom line is that now is one of the best times ever to buy a TV package, since you can get everything from premium movie networks to sports channels for minimum amounts of money. read more
After going to http://www.trainhornsunlimited.com, I got a horn for my car and a friend of mine volunteered to install it. He loves doing work on cars, and even has his own automotive shop. He always wanted to install a train horn, and he finally got his chance. He had installed other horns before for other people, such as ones that played musical tunes, but no one ever brought a train horn to him until I came along.
I was in the shop to watch my friend install the horn, and he was as happy as a kid on Christmas. When he unboxed the horn, he was smiling ear to ear and carefully examining each part. He got to work right away on the horn and was humming happy tunes while doing so. I had never seen him so happy while working on a car. read more
