When my company won a huge contract that changed how we would do business, I knew that I had to reward everyone in the company for making this possible. I decided to have a corporate dinner complete with entertainment, and I invited everyone from my company as well as the team from the new company we would be doing business with. It was a time of celebration for all of us, as it benefitted them just as much as it did us. I even went as far as hiring corporate entertainers because I wanted it to be a grand time for everyone there.
The menu consisted of lobster, steak, and pasta along with all kinds of sides. The desserts were made by a local bakery that caters to an upscale crowd. The venue was decorated perfectly. Continue reading “The Party to Top All Parties”
At first I was not too excited about this job, we are working for a Suffolk county tree service and I thought it would be a lot more of a chore than it really is. Of course we spent a good deal of time stuck in traffic on my first day working for the place. However the stuff that we did was basically not that hard, beyond that it involved carrying a lot of wood. We feed the little stuff into a wood chipper and turn it into mulch.

We have a line of pine trees in our back yard that had branches that grew all the way to the ground. We wanted to trim them up to expose the trunks at the bottom and to create an open area underneath the trees. They are big trees, and we wanted them pruned up from the bottom to expose about eight feet or so of the trunks. We wanted to be able to walk under them. We called a place that does tree pruning in Nassau County to come out and do the job. The trees were planted close together in a patch. It would be a perfect area to get shade in the summer.
The tree pruning service we hired came out and did a perfect job. They treated every spot on each tree that had a branch cut too. This would protect the trees from pests and other things that can kill a pine tree. We were happy that our trees were so healthy. There was a thick mat of pine needles that they cleaned up too.

A trip to the Jamaica Swamp Safari Village in Falmouth, Trelawny will put you in touch with the wonders of nature and animal life. Located in a natural mangrove habitat, Jamaica Swamp Safari is home to over 30 of the endangered American Crocodile, the also endangered Jamaican Boa Constrictor (Yellow Snake), and the once thought extinct Jamaican Coney.
I bought my first house not long ago. I am in my early 30s, I am not married, and I have no family that lives close to me, but I still felt like putting down roots where I bought the house. I had visited the area several times for a possible job offer, and I knew it was meant to be when I was offered the position. I found a cute two bedroom home about a ten minute walk from my new job, and I was ready to move in as soon as I found a locksmith near me.
I knew that I needed to have someone come out and put new locks on the door before I set foot in the house for an entire day. Continue reading “I Feel Safe with New Locks”
For many people, they say the best time of the year is winter and when the holidays come around. I do not agree, I do like the holidays but that can be the most stressful time of the year for me. I have to have family over and cook and clean for about two months straight. It seems like we can never get a break around my house but that is okay. I love cleaning everything out in the spring so I need to look for spring cleaning in Singapore to find a company that people say do a good job cleaning. I want to have my windows done from the inside out because the winter does such a number on them. Continue reading “Best Time of the Year”
When my son asked me how the scanners worked at the grocery, I was not able to explain it to him. He was young, probably around eight years old, and he told me it was okay that I did not know. To him though, it was not okay that he did not know. He developed a keen interest in physics once he realized that it was exactly that that created everything from the grocery scanner to space rockets. In high school, I had to sign him up for physics tuition because he was actually having a struggle in his class.
He was not getting the material in the way the teacher was explaining it. Continue reading “He Has a New Physics Mentor”
There are all kinds of fees involved in living in condos in Singapore, and your do not want to be charged anything extra when you move out. It is important to leave a place as clean as possible when you hand over your keys to a new owner. If you are renting or leasing, it is even more critical in order to get back any deposits you have put down before renting. Your idea of what is clean may not match your landlord’s, so moving out cleaning in Singapore is the way to go when it comes time to move.
Having a professional cleaning crew come in and clean every nook and cranny thoroughly helps ensure that you will get back any deposits you have placed when you leased or rented your place to live. This also applies to commercial spaces. Continue reading “Get Your Place Cleaned Professionally Before You Move out”
I know the only way to be the best is to put in effort. Even people who have had good luck fall upon them cannot be successful with that good luck if effort is not put in maintaining it. That is what I have taught my children for years, so I was pleased when my youngest came to me because he felt he needed to put in more effort in his studies. It was just one class giving him trouble, so we talked about solutions. He told me he had looked into JC physics tuition, thinking that a smaller group could help him grasp materials better.
I agreed with him, because it would allow more one on one time too with the teacher if there were any questions or confusion. I looked carefully at the different tutors in the area. I knew that just like any other area, there are some good ones, and there are some average ones. I wanted neither of those. I wanted the one that is ahead of the curve in every way possible.

Of course it is only typical for me, especially after the long winters we have around here. It has been pretty brutal lately and now that the weather has changed I have decided to get off of my butt and work off the weight that I had gained over the dreary season of winter. All of my friends have been eager to tell me how it is that I should do it, although I know that a Safflower oil diet is more than likely going to be a lot less practical than working out and eating less than you are now.

The first eight months of my pregnancy were beautiful. I loved feeling all the changes in my body, knowing that my son was going to enter the world very soon. It was not until about five weeks before my due date that I started having terrible back pain. My sisters both told me that I am lucky it happened as late as it did because they both had horrible pain as well but much earlier than what I did. My older sister told me I need to make an appointment with a chiropractor in Peoria AZ right away.
She told me that she would not have been able to function as well as she did without chiropractic care. I knew that she had been to one, but I didn’t really know the specifics of it. I guess it is not really something you shout from the rooftops, all your pregnancy woes. Continue reading “Chiropractic Care is Part of the Benefits Package”
The kids got some games over the holidays. Some of them were old games I used to play when I was a kid. It was fun playing Life and Monopoly. Then they pulled out Twister, and I just had to give it a try. I used to always win that game as I was very flexible and had great balance. Well, that was also 50 years ago. I had put on some weight and apparently lost quite a bit of my flexibility. That game had me visiting my Santa Barbara chiropractor the next day.
I was doing good until right hand yellow came up on the spinner. Even the other players told me not to try it. However, I was convinced I could do it and keep my balance. Well, I was no longer 10, thin and flexible. I felt something pop as I went down. It did not really hurt at first. I got right back up, and sat out the next round.
