It is not sure that this will last forever, but I have my own place. The hope is that the money will keep coming in and I will be able to afford it. For now it is less than ideal. Before it was me and three other guys sharing a house, which was great in theory as we were splitting the expenses for stuff like cox cable and a wireless internet service. Now I do not have those guys drinking beer and playing loud music until four in the morning, but I also do not have them to split the cost of the cable and the internet. That means that I am going to have to do with no cable for the minute and I am going to have to live with a cheap DSL service too. It is what it is as they say. Of course the truth is that those guys were not usually always there to pay their part of the bills either, usually one of them would leave the rest of us hanging for some reason or another.
I really had to get out though. My new job is not compatible with those guys. Of course I liked to do the same stuff while I was in college. I would go into class wearing dark glasses and pretend that my head was not going to explode every time the professor spoke, but now I have to get up around half past six in the morning and they are not going to like to hear the excuse if I am not at my desk at 8 AM sharp. The lady I answer to is not the nicest person in the world when it comes to tardiness or really pretty much any other thing so far as I can tell.Read More +
I was thinking of what I could get my parents for their anniversary gift this year. They are going to celebrate 40 years together, and my brothers and I really wanted to go all out for them. We finally decided that the nicest gift we could give them was time together in the same place where they had spent their honeymoon 40 years ago, which was Italy. I looked at some europe tour packages to see if there were any that included Italy for later this year. I knew that they would enjoy a trip a lot more if there was an itinerary for them to follow, so I was happy to find a tour that is perfect for them.
It is for 12 days, which will be the longest trip they have taken. They are both able to do that though, and I knew that they would love a long trip like this. The first day of their trip is going to be in Rome, where they will be met at the airport by their Tour Director. They will have a reception and dinner at a hotel that overlooks the Colosseum, and I knew that alone would make their day.
They will be able to tour the Vatican museums, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica. Those are all things that they have said they wished they could have done when they were younger, but they just did not have the time to go to Rome as well on their honeymoon. They are going to also experience Venice, Pisa, Florence, Sorrento and a few other cities. Because they will be there for 12 days, they are not going to be rushed at all. I cannot wait to see all of the pictures that I know they are going to take! Booking this for them has actually made me want to book something similar for my husband and myself too!
I had to hire a new maid for my household, because I fired the old one. The old one was stealing items from my home on the job. I reported her to the police and now she has legal troubles to handle. I was left without a maid, so I went searching for one on the Internet. Through my search, I found an agency that would provide someone to take care of my home. I contacted the agency and they sent someone the next day to begin their services.
The new maid was much better than the old one. Aside from not stealing any of my items, she did a much better job around the house. When she cleaned, everything looked much better compared to my old housekeeper. She didn't leave any spots or streak marks on the windows or the dishes. The floor was shiny, the bathrooms were spotless, the laundry was fragrant and neatly folded, and even the rugs were clean. She also cooked much better than the other housekeeper. She made a great chicken and rice dish that I had never had before. I requested that she make the dish for me at least once a week.
The housekeeper has a birthday coming up, and I want to give her a nice present to show how much I appreciate having her around. Good help is hard to find, and she deserves to have something good on her special day, because she really put in a lot of hard work to make sure that everything looks good. I think I'll give her a spa treatment. She would love to have a day to herself, to get pampered and massaged and just sit back and relax. Then I'll cook her a birthday dinner and a big cake with lots of decorations.Read More +
I have a puppy that is four months old right now, and it has been annoying me lately, by chewing up everything that it can. I have bought it some dog toys, but it prefers to chew on my belongings. It was not such a big deal, until it chewed up the charger for my laptop. I need the laptop for work, and now I need to find a replacement for the charger. I am looking on uber cable right now, which is a supplier of cables for computers and other electronic devices, and I really hope that they will have the right cable for my laptop.
I first looked into getting a replacement from the manufacturer of the laptop, but to get it replaced through the company, it was going to cost around 60 dollars. That seems like an unreasonable and a bit of a ridiculous price for a cable that probably only costs a few dollars to make in the first place. As such, I have decided that I will probably have better luck elsewhere.
I am going to try to spend less than twenty dollars on the new computer charger. I am not sure if I will be lucky enough to find something for that cheap, but I am sure going to do my best to look for a good deal. I might end up buying a universal charger, because I have seen a lot of them, that will work for the type of laptop that I have. I would need to read some product reviews first though, to make sure that it would work alright. I have a couple of other things that I probably should buy, while I am making this purchase. I have needed new headphones for over a year, but have not gotten around to purchasing any.Read More +
I have started to work on finishing the basement. It is what I planned all along. I bought this place with a lot more space than we needed and for a time the kids and I would skate down in the basement on the unfinished concrete floor. It was lovely for them when we got a big gym mat and let them make a huge mess, but now I am going to set up my family entertainment area. It will have a big screen tv and direct tv technology will make it so that I can get all of my favorite sports in high definition. That is what I want, but of course we shall have it set up for the entire family. I have a really great DVD player which also does Karaoke and the wife and kids love that. They actually sing pretty well and they love most if they can convince me to butcher some song, not sure why it is that people enjoy watching a train wreck, but they love that.
I would like it if I could put a pool table down there for me and my buddies, along with a bar and so forth. That is not likely to happen though, at least not unless there is an influx of cash that no one is holding their breath for. Instead we will do what is planned and then we shall go on about what needs to be done. We already found an inexpensive projection tv and a screen. I have tested them both, although I had to get a new bulb for the projector and that was very expensive of it self. I am going to do some home work before I set up the audio system, because I would love to duplicate the theater sound.Read More +
I am going to need to get a new television provider soon, because I just canceled my current television service, after yelling at a representative from the company for about 30 minutes. It was not worth my time, but it did feel kind of good to yell at them. I know I took my anger out on some poor person who has no part in making the policies that frustrated me with the company. In any case, I found this website - http://direct-satellite-tv.com/direct-tv/utah-provo/ - after doing some searching, on the web, for Direct TV deals located in the state of Utah.
This must be my lucky day, because it did not take very long to locate the sort of deals that I was looking for. More importantly than that, I think that I have found a deal that will really work to my favor. It comes with a lot more high definition television channels than I used to have. I think that I read that there are something like 195 high definition channels. That is kind of astounding to me, because in the past, I maybe had 15, but I do not know if it was even that many.
Regardless, I am very much tired of watching sports in low definition, or standard definition. It is hard to see what is going on, and you can't really follow the game, as well as you can when you are watching in high definition. I don't think I could ever go back to watching sports in standard definition, after seeing a few basketball games in HD. It just doesn't even come close to comparing, in terms of the experience, and the clarity. It is remarkable how much television has improved in my life time, and I hope that it continues to improve.Read More +
Quitting one of the world's most addictive and nasty habits is not an easy task. With every type of patch, gum, pill, diet, exercise and drink out there all claiming that they will be able to cure you from the addiction, do any of them work? Personally, I tried to quit more than once but I found almost no success in any of those alternatives. It was easy to see why; I'm addicted. So I tried the ecigzone electronic cigarette for uk and it helped. Why couldn't I quit before? It's simple. I have so many memories and physical actions associated with smoking that there is just no way for me to be able to quit. Whether it was waking up in the morning and smoking or smoking after dinner. Sometimes just getting in the car was enough to set it off for me or even answering my phone. All these things were triggers, things that I did every single solitary day of my life. How could I quit when something like smoking is so ingrained within my daily activities.
I have found that switching over to an e-cigarette to be incredibly refreshing. No longer am I waking up every morning hacking and coughing half my lung out as if they were rotting inside of me. I was actually scared that I had finally given myself cancer for smoking all these years but thankfully it was just my lungs purging all the tar and old lining of skin as they repaired themselves. It has been well worth it! The e-cigs are actually far more enjoyable anyways and I feel kind of cool carrying one around. It's nice to be able to smoke inside an establishment that has normal cigarettes banned but not e-cigs; I'll never be able to kick that habit!
Quite a few Brilliant o Pics
Image by fabianopcampos Essa manipulação é outra que está há tempos em meu computador quee nunca tinha finalizado e mesmo assim ainda sinto que faltou algo na foto '-' Sim meus queridos, Mariah foi capa da Playboy de Março de 2007, mas nada de mostrar a tcheca =/ só foi um ensaio sensual. A foto original da capa não existe então eu tive o trabalho de tirar essas letras dos infernos em cima do cabelo e refazer a pele. Acho que a única coisa que gostei mesmo foi a tipografia... '-' ____________________________ This manipulation is another that its saved in my computer for a long time waiting to finish and even finished I'm not totally satisfied. '-' Yes my homeslices, Mariah was a Playboy Magazine Cover in March 2007 but she didn't show her pussy (hahaha xD), she's just in sexy pics. The original cover pic doesn't exist, so I had to redo her hair and her skin erasing the letters on it. But the final result I just like the typography. '-'
O'Connell Street, Dublin
Image by National Library of Ireland on The Commons Photographer Richard Tilbrook captured a fine array of pedestrians in this shot - "ordinary" women; a nun; a schoolboy; a window cleaner; and a cyclist. Also in evidence is the haphazard parking down the middle of O'Connell Street that would give a modern traffic warden pause for thought. Signage for the Confectioner's Hall (second frontage from the left) is still there today, and think that may be Cafolla's Italian Chippers next door... Date: June 1963 NLI Ref.: TIL853

I wrote a play. I have been doing this for a umber of years. I am a paid director at a local production company, but this play that I wrote is the first one that is being produced. The other plays were practice leading up to this one. Getting the dialog and all of the notes for the actors and director on paper is just the beginning. The rest of it is designing everything from the sets to the costumes and even the advertising to bring in the audience. I was going to hire a freelance graphic designer to do the work when a friend told me how it would be better to hire a professional agency.
He had experience in advertising new products being offered for retail sale. He said he always worked with professional graphic design agencies when he wanted a finished and polished look for everything that was printed on a product or on the marketing materials promoting it. I took his advice and called the graphic design company he recommended for them to produce the poster that would be the marquee to advertise my play. I must say that it does pay to hire professionals who do this sort of work every day.
By giving them the basic information about what the play was about and the audience it was supposed to reach, they came up with a poster that was perfect. It was used in all print advertising for the play from the newspaper ads to the programs handed out to the audience each night. I know people who collect movie and play posters and they tell me to not be surprised if mine becomes a sought after collectible. That was nice to hear, but I was happy that the poster was such an advertising success filling the seats with paid ticket holders!
