Luxury Apartment Living in the DC Area

21 August 2017 by admin

Our new apartment in Washington DC suits my wife, kids and me. Our daughter has asthma, so the fact that Westbrooke Place uses zero VOC paint was a real help. We repainted her room at our old place once with paint that emitted volatile organic compounds, and she had asthma troubles ramp up exponentially. Our other daughter is an activist for ecologically-friendly things all of us can do to make things better and more sustainable. When she found out that each floor of the apartment building has a recycling center, she was all for moving there. The fact that they use recyclable carpeting and padding along with energy-efficient lighting was right up her alley.

Me? Well, I must admit that the lap pool being indoors and heated was a big draw. My wife was impressed with the fitness center. Continue Reading →

I Got a Great Job Offer My Boss Recently

21 August 2017 by admin

My work partner and I were called into a meeting with our boss last week, and we were both asked if we would like to work out of our satellite office in Florida. Considering that we work and live in very cold Minnesota, we were both very ecstatic and said that we would love to. My boss said that they are willing to give each of us our own unity at Treasures on the Bay Apartments and pay for everything for a year. They said they felt this would help offset any other costs that we will need to incur. This sounded fantastic. The thought of being able to live where a heavy coat and lots of heavy clothing for long winters is something that I have wanted for more years than I can remember.

I did not grow up in Minnesota. I went there because I wanted to become a journalist, and the first place that hired me happened to be there. I never got used to the very long Winters. Continue Reading →

Our New Apartment is a Far Cry from Barracks in the Desert

15 August 2017 by admin

I have put my time in living in everything from barracks to tents. It is one thing to go camping and sleep under the stars for a couple of days on a vacation, and a whole other thing when you have to do it. Now that I am in a new line of work, I really wanted a nice place to live. I wanted us and the kids to have space and new things. We found the District South apartments. You can click here to see how nice they are. Halfway around the world I lived in modular structures that were slapped together quickly. It was super hot or really cold depending on if you were in the mountains on a clear night or in the valley on a hot day. If you have ever seen a camel spider, you know what I’m talking about.

Anyway, our new apartment has all the things we would associate with fine living. There is ceramic in the bathroom along with a big walk-in shower. Continue Reading →

I Just Got to Asheville

15 August 2017 by admin

I was looking around for a new place to live and I found this really awesome place, but unfortunately it had a really big rent too. If you click here you can check it out. For a single bedroom unit the cost was about twelve hundred and fifty dollars per month. However it was only a hundred dollars more for a two bedroom unit and so I started to wonder how hard it would be to find a decent roommate. Obviously you do not want to just find some random guy who may or may not do what you need him to do. Instead you need a person with a good job who is going to keep his good job. Continue Reading →

Nice Apartment and Decent Neighbors Was All We Wanted in a Place to Live

15 August 2017 by admin

We wanted a clean and affordable place to live. Some place where we actually liked our neighbors rather than being annoyed by them constantly. If you have ever lived in an apartment, you know what I mean. You make a lot of allowances for noise and rudeness because you do not want to be “that neighbor.” We needed to move because of a couple of families that moved to our floor. They were so noisy we could not even sleep. When I found Summer Grove Apartments, we had to take a look. You can see them if you click here to go to their website.

Summer Grove is a place that is within our rent budget, and it is nice. Plus, their pet policy allows us to have our dog. We needed to stay in Colorado Springs to be close to work. Neither of us wanted a long commute. Our new apartment at Summer Grove puts us within minutes of where we work. We have a nice space. Our furniture fits perfectly, and we are really comfortable.

We Were Meant to Be Roommates

14 August 2017 by admin

My friend sent me an email that said to click here for website of the apartment complex she had been telling me about. It is not far from where either of us work, and she thought it would be really nice if we both shared an apartment there. We had been talking about how expensive it was to live on our own, and we had tinkered around with the idea of moving into an apartment as roommates. We get along really well so I knew that we would not have any problems living together. It also helps that we have complete opposite work schedules so we wouldn’t be spending all of our free time together. Continue Reading →

California Beach Living is Awesome

14 August 2017 by admin

Click here if you are looking for your dream home. Well that was what I did and boy am glad I did. I think it is a dream of many people to live close to the ocean, but most of us can’t afford to purchase a house there, so finding a luxury apartment is the next best thing. Well at least it was for me and my husband. My husband works in the IT industry and his job was going to be moving him out to California, so it was going to be my job to find the perfect apartment. We didn’t want to purchase a house, because the housing market is so expensive in California. My husband would be so busy with his work, that he would not have much time to look around for a new place.

At first I thought I would just drive around and look for places, but that did not work at all. Continue Reading →

We Found a Place Where We Can Be Active Close to Home

11 August 2017 by admin

I came from a state where a lot of people spend a lot of time outside. I loved being able to walk outside and immediately many people jogging, biking, skating or doing something else outside. When my husband told me that we were moving due to his job, I was worried that the new town we were moving to would not have such active people. But we ended up getting a place at http://www.liveatparkwaysquare.com/ where there are a lot of physically active people at that complex and even throughout the city. I don’t even miss the city that we were living in before because I love where we are living now.

I’ve been pretty active since I was a child. I grew up in a home where my parents made stir to help me and my siblings learn just how important it is to get some exercise in all throughout the week. They took us on a lot of family outing often. Continue Reading →

Finally Got an Apartment That is Clean with New Appliances and is Pet-Friendly to Boot!

09 August 2017 by admin

We definitely needed to rent a new apartment, and it had to be a place that was nice, new and pet-friendly. We saw plenty of places that were really nice and clean with all new stuff, but they would not take pets. Then we found places that would take pets, but they were not nice places to live. Then we discovered Tally Square, you can click here to see just how great this place is. Clean apartments with new stuff. The appliances looked brand new. If there was someone living here before us, they must have had a pro cleaning crew come in. It looked to us like it had just been renovated. It looked great and did not smell like anything. That is a good sign. If you smell cleaners or air fresheners, run! The place should not smell like anything at all. You know it is clean then.

We did not find any grime behind the stove. We pulled it out to see as we looked high and low for stuff that would need a good scrubbing before we moved in. Continue Reading →

I Am Almost Living Like a King

09 August 2017 by admin

Of course it is not exactly what I was looking for when I started out, but it worked out pretty well since two other people at my job were looking for a third person to share the rent. The place is called the Palms at Peccole Ranch apartment homes and it is a really awesome place with modern apartments in Las Vegas, NV. I moved out here about three weeks ago and I got a great job working at this really expensive restaurant. I mean this is the sort of place where an ordinary person would hardly ever see the interior of. However a lot of the time it is like a once in a lifetime thing, however most of the time you are talking about really rich people who are out on vacation. Continue Reading →

Custom Parts for My Car from a Local Business

07 October 2016 by admin

My friend owns an automotive repair business. That’s how I met him. I brought my car into his shop to have some work done. His business has a very good reputation in our community. I knew that he specialized in restoring cars with difficult to replace parts. He’s been in business for more than 20 years. Very recently, he found a new supplier for his parts. They have an aluminum extruder, which is something no one else in the area has. Any time a client comes to him and is in need of a specialty part, he knows exactly where to go.

In business, it’s important to know where to go not only to get the best price, but to find the best product. It’s also really important to work with good people. Continue Reading →

The Freedom of the Internet

15 December 2015 by admin

The web has changed business forever. That’s why it is so vital for us to protect the web no matter the cost. There are interests currently out there who are trying their best to create a web that suits their needs rather than the needs of society. They are trying to turn the Internet into something that will line their pockets with money while they stifle business on the web as a whole. Take for instance the fact that I can find an online quote for a rental car place. I can find an online quote with multiple companies, all of them competitors.

Now, if Comcast has their way, then one of those competitors could pay for a ‘fast lane’ while the others might not be able to afford this service. Continue Reading →

A Loyal Consumer with New Choices

17 October 2016 by admin

I really love everything about my iPhone. I initially got it because I really liked the pictures that its camera takes. I figured I would use the iPhone I bought mainly for the camera and to make phone calls, but that was only until I saw how many other amazing things this phone can do. I did want to find out how to unblock SIM card though because I felt like Apple was taking a lot of the control away from me. I paid a lot of money for my phone, and I felt like I had very little control over it.

I did not want to do want to do anything that was not right, but I also did not want to be chained to whatever they wanted for me rather than what I wanted for myself. Continue Reading →

Paystubs Are So Much Easier to Use to Verify Income Than Tax Returns

09 October 2016 by admin

I get asked for my driver’s license, a bill that comes to my physical address in my my name and a paystub for a lot of different things. When I tell people I do not have a paystub, they look at me funny. They give me that look like I am some kind of cheater who is not going with the flow of things. They make me feel like an outsider that makes them go through extra trouble to prove things such as income. I avoid that now by using a real paystub maker that I found. I print one for each pay period when I earn my pay.

I work from home doing online work. I have spent countless hours trying to explain to people what I do to earn a living. I work for a bunch of different companies who pay me through direct deposit to my checking account and to online pay services. Each company has their own rules of payment. I pay the taxes on every dollar I earn whether it is directly deposited or if it is cash for fixing someone’s computer or doing handyman work. Continue Reading →

Making Things Easier in a Home is Possible Now

15 September 2016 by admin

I used to watch a lot of cartoons as a kid, and one of my favorites focused on what life in the future would be like. I used to love seeing all the buttons they would push to make things automate and suddenly they could turn on their lights while still in bed or a machine make dinner for them. I used to think those things would never be possible, but when my husband began talking to me about home automation in Boca Raton recently, I realized that time is now. It is possible to have someone to come in and set up a home to automate so many things.

Now that my husband and I are older, getting around is not as easy as it used to be. And because we live in an area that can become quite chilly at night, we often don’t go outside to get things down when the temps drop outside. For some people, this is not a problem. My husband and I like to get things done, though. And the fact that we get so cold now that we’re older can be quite frustrating to two people who don’t like to ignore getting things done. We decided to call one of the companies that can set your home up to do things more easily to see just what they could do for us.

We ended having some panels installed around the house that allow us to simply push a button to start, end and monitor important tasks. For example, we have a pool, and we can monitor the heater, turn on the cleaner and so much more now from inside the house. We even have the ability to see how much electricity we’re using now so that we can cut back where needed in order to say money. It is all very helpful to us.

Making the Move from Los Angeles to La Jolla

05 September 2016 by admin

After living in Los Angeles for more than 30 years, my family and I are finally ready to make a move and start looking at La Jolla homes for sale. I’ve wanted to move to that area for most of my life, and now it seems like everything is falling to place and it’s the perfect time. I’ve found an agent who will be walking us through the process of searching for and purchasing our new home. I don’t know what I would do without her. She’s quite resourceful and really listens to our wants and our needs.

I’m amazed by some of the homes she’s shared with us so far. Properties in the area are gorgeous and have more amenities than I expected. Continue Reading →

A Crash Course in Civil

05 September 2016 by admin

For a very important job interview, I lied on my resume about being able to use Civil 3D. Lying on resumes is a common occurrence, but usually companies investigate the lie before hiring a person. They didn’t in my case, so when I got the job, I was glad, but also worried that I would lose it instantly if I couldn’t find some way to learn enough information to use Civil in time. The job started on Monday, so the quickest way was to find Civil 3D training videos and cram the information into my brain over the weekend.

Using a website with comprehensive training videos in Civil 3D, I started at the beginning, taking notes on everything being mentioned and using the program along with it. I was having trouble understanding how everything worked in the beginning, but after hours of usage, I began to understand it. Time went by so fast that I didn’t realize that Friday had come to an end. I was feeling tired from all of the videos, so I went to bed and woke up early the next morning to start my video training again.

Saturday packed with more training videos, each one with more detailed material than the last one. It was like I was taking an entire months long course in the span of a weekend. I didn’t bother to make anything for dinner, because it would have wasted too much of my study time. I just ate some chips and a couple of slices of bread. At the end of the day, I went back to bed and woke up again on Sunday morning. While watching the videos on Sunday evening, I was getting that same feeling that I used to get when I would wait until Sunday evening to do my homework that was due on Monday.

Couple Seeking Women for Threesome

06 June 2016 by admin

My wife has always been a freak in the bedroom, and that is one of the reasons why I married her. Though I wouldn’t say that to her face, because I am not sure she would appreciate it. I really enjoy that we are able to often fulfill each-others sexual fantasies and that we do not judge each other with regards to said fantasies and sexual desires. I am trying to find the best way to post a couple looking for women advertisement online, to get the most responses, as my wife and I are going to try something new.

It is something that neither of us have ever tried before, and I did not even think it was on the table. Continue Reading →

Best Hacks for Agar Game

01 December 2015 by admin

I have been playing this new game on my phone and I must admit that it is starting to get me a bit addicted. I do not generally like being addicted to things, but when it is a game, it is not such a bad thing. I can see how it could get out of control, but it is not like I am playing it at dinner or anything. However, I am looking for an Agar hack to help me to get even better at the game, without spending ridiculous amounts of time trying to get up the leader board.

I found out that some of my friends play it, and they have been playing it a lot longer than me. As such, they are a lot better than me. Continue Reading →
