Boozapalooza

Posted in Business

Let’s be frank, I’m a 30 something, single, corporate minded woman who loves to enjoy a two martini lunch or a stop at my favorite cocktail bar on my way home. Lately though, my age and nonstop lifestyle have been catching up to me. I would be groggy after lunch or in a haze in the mornings. I don’t believe all the hype that I hear on radio, or TV about miracle hangover cures, but lately there has been a lot of water filtration media coverage that has been hard for me to ignore. It seems to me, that drinking water that has had all the impurities filtered out of it before I have it should be easier on my kidneys. After all, I put enough strain on them with my dirty martinis, why not reduce their work load by removing the extra stuff in my water.

Sweet Soil

Posted in Home Improvement

We’ve lived in our home for a couple years now, and I’ve been quite disappointed in the results of my flower garden plantings. My feeble attempt at herb gardening also failed miserably. With full knowledge that I inherited my mother’s brown thumb, I sought advice from my home and garden store. After describing what would and would not grow in my yard, the technician recommended mixing hydrated lime into the soil to raise the Ph level. Apparently, my soil is too acid — hubby says it complements my and ascerbic wit!

After applying this compound to the soil, I must admit there was a marked improvement in my little harvest. While certainly not a candidate for president of the local garden club, my yard is no longer an embarrassment. My flower garden is stunning and I’m growing abundant herbs for my goumet cooking skills — unlike my deficient gardening skills.

Dune Ball

Posted in Sports

Deep in the Sahara desert, gladiatorial champions from around the world will compete in the first annual Dune Ball Tournament. The arena is 100 square kilometers and played on the silica sand surface which makes up this hostile terrain. The participants are given a 35lb. lead ball worth its weight in gold. The objective of the game is to survive and to collect lead balls from the dead. The players have a limited choice of equipment sets. They may choose a canteen of water with compass or a .30-caliber bolt action rifle with 10 rounds of ammunition. The game is over when one can successfully find and defend the man-made oasis located at the center of the arena for 3 days. Those who survive to the end will be extracted from the arena. The prize will be their lives and any lead balls they possess, redeemable for gold.

Worth the Wait

Posted in Senior Living

When I got divorced I never thought I would fall in love with someone again, but it happened sooner than I wanted. Love from a distance, without exchanging words, that’s how I started to feel attracted to a stranger.

He was stoic and reserved with an attitude of pride that attracted me more to him. After spending several months longing that at least he looked at me, one day while sipping coffee in a bakery he asked permission to sit next to me, I felt nervous and turned the coffee on the table, which to my surprise sparked a long and spirited conversation.

After a couple of hours laughing and exchanging more serious issues, we realized that we were right for each other. Who does not believe in love at first sight? I did not believe in it, but after mature dating him for some time my world changed completely.

Expanding Classroom Education

Posted in Lifestyle

Since the invention of Bolton CCTV systems several years ago, many institutions have eagerly adopted the technology as a way to present local interest programming. Today for instance, you will find numerous college broadcasting and media communications departments using this medium to train future newscasters, weather announcers and journalists. Just as college radio stations once provided a practical arena for the development of disc jockeys (and still do in most cases), the arrival of visual media has led to campus reporting teams armed with digital cameras and even professional video equipment scouting their environments for news stories. You may hear diverse press releases from educators in the form of television newscasts beaming from TV sets around a typical campus. The highly local broadcasts inform students and faculty about ongoing development at the institution and entertain anyone waiting to gain access to a class room. Sometimes stories also concern regional public events.

In the process of building my dream home

Posted in Property

After getting the estimate cost of the new home I planned to build from the ground up on some abandoned land that I bought in Texas, it was time to get down to the groundworks of my plan. As a owner builder, the first thing I did was make a few modifications to my building plans to fit in with my cities building codes. The cost breakdown in the construction of my home, including the foundation, lumber, framing,plumbing, heating, electrical, and builders profit was a good 30k for this 3000 sq ft project. While the electricians and plumbers took care of their areas of this 7 and a half month project, I helping the carpenters with their job, and all the painting I’m doing myself. Now with only 3 months of work to do in this project, I already know that every bit of work was worth it.

Purchasing Supplies Online

Posted in Marketing

I manage several stores in my area, and I am always searching for ways to reduce costs. However, I am not willing to sacrifice quality just to save a few dollars. Customer satisfaction is very important to our business, and we don’t that we will not attract new customers if we don’t keep our current customers happy.
One of the best ways I have found to save money is by purchasing supplies online. This month, I purchased paper towels, printer ink, toner, paper, NCR pads and numerous other items from several different websites.
In order to maximize my savings, I look for companies that offer free shipping and other perks along with discounted prices. Since shipping times can vary, it is important to place your order early enough when you are ordering online. I like to purchase supplies at least three months in advance to make sure we don’t run out of anything important.

Regular Cooling System

Posted in Home Improvement

It’s warm in this part of the country, even during the holiday season. Air conditioning Manchester is a must have for every home or office, just ask my neighbor. His family always makes sure that their central cooling system is updated seasonally. They have lived here several years, so nobody needs to tell them how important regular maintenance is to any hard working cooling device. It seems like someone is always on their rooftop every few months. This is the best way to make sure that your equipment is running efficiently and never breaks down in an emergency. By doing this regularly for any home, office, or other important place you own, your family will avoid unnecessary costs each year. My neighbor and his family are a great example of how to keep cool during every season. This year, I will be following their example and keeping my cooling system maintained.
