I have never taken a dance class in my life. The most I have done is dance with friends when we were out clubbing when I was younger, and I was not very good at even that. My husband has only danced once, and that was at our wedding. He has two left feet so he doesn’t even subject himself to trying. That is why I was really shocked when my daughter asked me if I could look into Toronto ballet classes for her. I was shocked for two reasons. Continue Reading →

When my friend first told me about the Treasure at Tampines development, I really was not keen on learning more. It is not that I had anything against it but I just felt that it was probably not in my price range. I knew of the location, and I just honestly did not think that I could afford to have that type of address. When he urged me a second time to look at it, I caved in to the pressure. I figured I would look real quick, tell him I did, then I would be off the hook.
So, I went online to get more information about this condo, and I was surprised at the information I found. Continue Reading →

Every day I do the crossword puzzles in the newspaper, and I always find them to be too easy. The words in the puzzle are easy to figure out. I kept thinking that I could probably make a puzzle that was more difficult than the ones that were in the newspaper, and that’s when it hit me. I came up with the idea of an app that would allow people to make their own crossword puzzles. I had no skills in making apps, so I contacted a company that would be able to provide a mobile app developer to get it done for me.
The company drew up some plans for the layout of the app, based on the specifics I gave to them. They were able to turn such a simple idea into an elaborate app in just a month. Continue Reading →
My daughter told me the other day that she would like to have some Kawaii clothes. I had never heard of this and asked her what it was. She told me they have a lot of cute clothes and a lot of them have cats designed into them. She was overly excited while she explained this to me. We went over to the computer and did an internet search for Kawaii clothing stores. I clicked on the top result and have to admit that this was a very cute and interesting site. The joy on her face dictated that we had to start looking further at the different items of clothing in this online store.
We looked at a lot of different hoodies with kitties on them. These turned out to be her favorite. They were really cute and had kitty ears other features that stood out. She did not know it at the time but I was taking mental notes as to which hoodies she liked the best. I had an ulterior motive to purchase these after she went to bed and surprise her with them as gifts from Santa since Christmas was not that far off. We even saw a cute hat with bunny ears and long soft arms hanging down to the girl’s hands. It said when you squeeze the paws it makes the ears move up and down. How cute is that? I think we browsed this line of clothing for about an hour and of course, she wanted almost everything she saw.
As soon as she went to sleep for the night I got back on the website and placed an order for the items I thought she liked best including the hat with the moveable bunny ears. She is going to be so surprised Christmas morning.
I have a friend that wants to learn how to play the drums. He is musically inclined and already plays a variety of instruments including an acoustic guitar, electric guitar, mandolin, and banjo. He typically plays bluegrass music but is also an avid fan of rock and roll and wants to try to expand his repertoire to include the drums. We have discussed what type of drum set he should buy and we’re both clueless on the subject. So we decided to take a look at drum kit reviews to figure out what he is going to need to start this new venture.
We quickly found a site that has drum kit buying guides that range from beginners to the novice player. We took a look at some of the beginner buying guides to see what the basic needs would be. There were a couple of different categories of reviews and guides that intrigued us. Continue Reading →
I have been doing well over here or I suppose that I should say that I have been doing well down here, since we are South of the Equator. I spent a few hours in Sydney after the flight from San Francisco. I was really sick of flying and hated the thought of getting back on a plane, but the flight from Sydney to here is a tiny hop after that. Somehow I managed to find a girlfriend, I needed a haircut and I went to a mobile hairdresser in Melbourne and there was a pretty long wait there, which turned out to be a good thing I think. She is really very good looking, but she does not act as though she believes that she is and claims that she is only recently blossomed. Continue Reading →
I have been thinking a lot lately about what I should do after I get out of high school and how I can be happy doing it as well. Obviously you would like to find a way to earn a living and be happy at doing it as well. I have to think that the way forward is pretty obvious, although it is not so easy or so simple. For example you read in the papers about the Russian hackers, recently they say one of them forgot to use his VPN and that is how the FBI figured out who he was and where he was working from. The truth is that those guys are out there all of the time and most of the time the FBI is not really looking that hard for them. Continue Reading →

When my wife and I took an assignment from the company we both worked for to head up operations in Asia, we settled on living in Singapore where we have a big office. Our company sweetened the long term deal to go by purchasing us a condo at the New Futura in Singapore. This is an amazing place. There is an entire level dedicated to being an outdoor space within the building itself. This level reminds me of the local park I used to go swimming at and have picnics at with my family when I was a child.
The cool thing about buildings in Singapore is that the architects build outdoor spaces right into the buildings themselves. Continue Reading →
When it comes time to move, the amount of work you have to do can be completely overwhelming. The amount of packing and cleaning that has to take place in a relatively short amount of time can be overwhelming. Many times people try to tackle every stage of a move on their own, but there are cleaning services in Singapore that more should take advantage of that could make the move much more manageable. The service is growing in popularity because even being able to hire out one part of the moving process, tends to make it more bearable.
For many homeowners and renters, it is necessary to leave the house or apartment they’ve been living in, in a certain good standard. It can’t be a mess when the new owners or renters move in. Continue Reading →
I wanted to make sure that my husband and I were going to be comfortable for our first road trip, just the two of us. Our daughter went to college and we decided that we were going to take our time to travel the country for two weeks, we were going to drive her to school and take off from there. I knew that I had to buy truck seat cushions that were going to be comfortable for us as I did not want to have to spend hours in the vehicle while I kept on having to readjust my seat. I have a bad back and I went to my doctor and he told me as long as I got out of the truck to stretch every four or five hours that I would be okay to go. Continue Reading →
I have always used tutors to help me learn the things I wanted or needed to learn. Years ago almost every job was through some sort of apprenticeship. A master of a craft would take you under his wing to teach you how to do something. You were obliged to work for the person for a set period of time. In some cultures in the world you could get arrested for abandoning your apprenticeship. I used tutors for everything from math in school to improving my golf game. I suggested physics tuition to our son who came home with a school report that showed he was struggling to keep up in his physics class.
He told us it was his commitments to the school band and his theater class that was the cause of him falling behind in physics. Continue Reading →
It seems you kind of get used to the dust and grime in your own house even if you can immediately see the slightest amount of dirt in someone else’s house. Your nose will even do a thing known as becoming “scent blind” to foul odors if you are exposed to them long enough. So, your house could be dirty and stinky and you would overlook it. We get used to our own cleaning routines, but spring cleaning in Singapore is something that should be done. I think it should be done professionally. we can take shortcuts in our spring cleaning routines. A professional company will do what they are being paid to do.
We paid to have spring cleaning in Singapore completed at our home. I was amazed at the amount of dirt that came out of the carpeting. I was shocked to see the grime behind the stove, refrigerator, washer and dryer. We clean our rooms and wipe everything down, but the deep spring cleaning they did made a huge difference in our home.

My friend asked me why I was having my son go to tuition for physics when he was already doing so well in his classes. My son is an overachiever when it comes to school, so I could understand the question. It also explains why he wanted to be a part of the tutoring class when he started reading all of the details on https://physicstuitionsg.com. He does really well in school and is consistently bringing home high scores. However, he does a lot of prep at home in order to maintain his high grades.
It was not surprising to see him come home from school, study a few hours, eat, and then study until bed time on certain days. I never pushed myself like that in school, and I certainly didn’t want to see him pushing himself to the point of exhaustion on those days. He has such high goals for his life though, and he actually does enjoy learning. Continue Reading →
My husband and I are expecting our first child in two months and are beyond excited about becoming parents. Since this is my first pregnancy I knew nothing about the changes my body was going to go through. I did not realize how uncomfortable I would become the more the baby grew. The biggest complaint I have is how much pain I’m experiencing in my lower back. At times it is absolutely unbearable. A friend of mine suggested I might want to seek help from a Bakersfield chiropractor because they may be able to help alleviate the lower back pain.
I was a bit surprised at this recommendation as I have never heard about this kind of treatment for pregnant women for anything and decided to do some research on it. As I was doing my search, I found a local chiropractor that caught my attention because of their professional looking website. I found the section on pregnancy pain treatment and started reading its content. I learned that many women’s pain was caused by a shift in weight to the pelvic area, usually in the third trimester. Chiropractors can help lessen or even alleviate the pain and also may aid in an easier and less painful delivery.
So far, I was impressed with the information provided and decided to call to set up an initial consultation to discuss my options as a patient. This particular doctor offers an initial consultation and examination for only $39. The scheduling department was very friendly and easy to talk to and set up my appointment for next Monday. She advised me to make a list of any questions or concerns I may have so that I won’t forget to ask the doctor and to also arrive about 15 minutes early to fill out new patient paperwork.
I knew that I wanted to live at Palisades at Manassas Park because of how nice it is. A good friend of mine lives there with her husband, and she has told me from her first day there that I needed to look into moving there too. The only problem with me was I was under a lease for the apartment I was in, so I had to ride that out to the end. When I was in my last month, I started looking at the different apartments there to see which one I wanted to live in.
She and her husband have a really nice two bedroom unit, even though it is just the two of them. Continue Reading →
I really was not sure where to go when I started thinking about a vacation trip for my family. Mexico and Colorado were the two choices, so I had to decide between the sun and beach or the snow and skiing. I asked my family since they were going to be just as involved in everything, and everyone voted for the beach. Though we are definitely a family that loves to ski, the lure of warm sand and beautiful waters was stronger. I did a search for luxury vacation rentals for Cabo San Lucas because I wanted us to go somewhere we had not been before.
I looked at different pictures of the beaches in San Lucas, and I knew that it was going to be a fantastic place to visit with my family. Continue Reading →
I began my search for apartments for rent in South Charlotte NC just two weeks ago and found a place within only 24 hours of starting that search. I can remember 35 years ago how I needed to travel to each place individually, and it was something that typically needed to be done only on the weekends when I had time off of work. It would sometimes take 2 or 3 weekends to carry out, but it is not like that anymore. Now, you can literally find a new apartment in only hours if you start your search online.
I can be rather picky about the places that I live. Continue Reading →
I knew that when I moved to Florida, my youngest daughter was going to want to go with me. I had not planned on moving there until I retired, but an incredible job opportunity came up. I knew that I would rather spend the last ten years of my working life doing something I loved than where I had been, so I made a very easy decision to move. I went online to look at apartments, and I found one that said to click here for two bedroom floor plans, so I did.
Even though my daughter is out of school, she was still living with me. Continue Reading →
It occurred to me that I needed to be closer to my family. When it came time to apply for colleges many years ago, I applied to schools that were many states away because I wanted to see more in life. But life has been tough and I realized that I need my family, just as much as they need me. I found myself looking at apartments for rent in Tucker GA often because I wanted to come home again. I decided to talk to my mom about it because I was a little conflicted due to the job that I had.
I worked hard to get to where I was with the company that I got hired at right out of college. I wanted to make something of myself and make sure that I didn’t have to struggle with money often since I was on my own. I accomplished that, but then I found out that I had a chronic illness. It really made me slow down a bit and think more about what is really important to me in life. Continue Reading →
