My god my back is killing me today. It is so stiff that I can hardly sit at the computer. So I am going to try to get this blog written as soon as I can, so I can get up and go lay down or do anything that will make my back feel better. I am checking on this website called,http://www.thelocksmithbirmingham.co.uk/ because I am going to need to hire a locksmith pretty soon to get into this car that I own. I have no idea where the keys are for it, but I am sure that they will turn up as soon as I actually pay someone to open the car for me.
It is an older car that I was going to repair at one point in time, but I never got around to it, and now it is probably not worth much more than scrap. In fact, that is what I am going to do with the car. I am going to sell it for scrap, but before I can do that, I need to get some stuff out of it. In particular, there is stuff in the trunk that I need to get out.
But since I do not know where the keys are, it looks like I am going to have to hire a locksmith. I tried getting around this problem, by trying to pick the lock, but I don’t have a lock pick and it was not as easy as I thought it would be. Anyway, I also took a crow bar to the trunk and tried to pry it open. All I succeeded in doing was messing up the trunk pretty good. I guess it doesn’t matter though, because I am about to sell the car for scrap metal anyway, so the appearance doesn’t matter any.
The sewer drain for my house is pretty clogged and it is causing sewage to back up into the house. That is a beyond disgusting thing to happen, and the first time I discovered the sewage backup, I literally vomited right then and there. It was pretty disgusting, and very unpleasant to clean up the vomit. But now I need to look into sewer cleaning in Bergen county and try to figure out how much it is going to cost to get this sewer drain cleaned out.
I did not realize these drains could get clogged so bad, and also did not realize that if they did get clogged, that it would put your house at risk for having sewage to back up into your house. I really wonder what is clogging the drain. Maybe it is just years of buildup, I am not sure. Continue reading
My mother has been in great health all of her life. Now that she is nearly 80 years old, her body just doesn’t want to work the way that it used to. About three months ago, I had to begin talking with her about moving her into an independent living home. This was one conversation that we never wanted to have with each other, but since she had fallen three times in six months, I knew that we had to do something different.
Instead of jumping the gun and finding an independent living home for her, we decided to start looking for ways that we could increase her safety while she remains living in the home that she has lived in for the past fifty years.
I found out about all of the different gadgets that could help us keep her safe. These little gadgets can be used to alert me, the law and an ambulance if or when my mother falls or feels ill. I have seen the commercials that tell stories of elderly people lying on the cold, hard floor for hours, if not days, because they cannot pick themselves up. This was exactly the scenario that I wanted to avoid.
After talking with my mother, her doctor and a company that deals with safe independent living, we decided exactly what to do for her. She was going to stay in her home and use one of these medical alert devices and I would hire a care nurse to visit her once a day while I was at work.
Knowing that my mother continues to live in the home that she loves so much is a blessing. She is happy and I feel so much better about her being there all by herself when I cannot be there to check on her.
Most people have probably heard of a defibrillator, and some have probably even seen one in use. However, even though the concept itself is not necessarily hard, using one of these tools is not something to take lightly. While in the right hands defibrillators for schools can be a lifesaving tool, in the wrong hands it can just make a situation worse than it already was. The bottom line is that training and knowledge about these products will be almost as important as having the products available in the first place, so training should not be overlooked in any case.
Of course it is not just about the training either, as the product itself has to be easy to use and reliable in all situations. Continue reading
Why just bet on a horse in a horse race when you can actually own one? My grandad asked me that. He has been a part of the top local horse racing syndicates as far back as I can remember. He has owned several horses over the decades. He likes to use one of the clubs so there are no surprises. If you just buy a horse completely on your own, you need a manager as well as a place to keep the horse. You also need to hire a vet, buy food, arrange for exercise and hire a jockey to race the horse. Oh, and you have to have a manager who can arrange races too.
If you go with the best of the horse racing syndicates, you get all of that covered under the cost you put up to buy your horse. No hidden or surprise fees if you go with a good syndicate. Continue reading
As I watch my parents grow older with every passing year after the loss of my grandmother three years ago, I’ve come to realize that the effects of aging seem to happen far more rapidly and with more serious difficulties whenever an illness occurs. Yeah, I read and hear about the stories of that 100 year old man who has never been sick a day of his life or that 100 year old woman finishing a marathon but these men and women are exceptional exceptions. I recently had to hire carers at home for my mother who can’t bear the idea of living in a elderly ‘center’.
I loathe that so many of these places use the word ‘center’. Continue reading
Being given one of the employee engagement surveys has made me consider whether or not the company is beginning the process of hiring new people or phasing out an entire department. Due to the nature of our job, we have to deal with a constant amount of stress. I can’t go into details regarding what they do but sifting through the sheer amount of data that we’re provided with, much of it being sensitive data (legally obtained, mind you), can be profoundly psychologically stressful. Most of us have to see a therapist as mandated by the company at least every three months. Continue reading
Probably about a decade ago for car owners it was not a big deal if you had broken car keys. It was easy and cheap to get replacement car keys. Then as technology advanced, car keys became much more complicated. The first new ones had actual metal keys with a remote door opener built onto them. Then security upgrades had the new keys have a built in chip that, if not present and programmed correctly, would not allow the car to run. They have fuel shut off systems built in that, if the right chip is not on the key, your car will only start for a couple of seconds before shutting off.
Other new car keys may not even have an actual key. It just may be a fob you carry with you. Proximity unlocks the door when you pull the handle, and you have a pushbutton start. Continue reading
Started working at this parachute school, doing the same thing that I did with the U.S Army where I was at Fort Bragg and I supervised one of the teams of people who packed parachutes. The only real difference in this is that I am in the UK and they have tandem skydiving here, which is a slightly different thing. The technique is pretty much the same, but you obviously need more of a parachute for twice as much weight. I guess there is probably a weight limit on how big the other person can be, but all of the instructors are relatively slender. Continue reading
A few months ago, I won a substantial bet that I placed on an underdog in a horse race. I do not want to disclose exactly how much money I won, because that is not really anyone’s business. However, it was more than enough to purchase a young horse, that I intend to raise to be a race horse one day. But before it can become a race horse, I need to find racehorse trainers that are extremely good at their job.
I am looking for the elite of the racehorse training community, because I really want for my horse to win some races. I know it is going to be expensive to get the horse trained for racing, but I am more than willing to take on the costs. Continue reading
I knew that when my grandma wanted me to go to over to her house that I was going to have to spend some time looking at her vintage jewellery and taking what I wanted because it was really important for me to do so. There are a lot of people in the family that say that my daughter and nieces should have a few pieces and I agreed. However, I was going over to help her get rid of stuff and it was important to me to be able to go and help her determine what was worthless. My grandfather also passed away quite a bit ago and she still has to go through his clothes and it is going to be very hard for her. Continue reading
I was listening to many people that said that they were going to start using bags to send out the non fragile items that they sold in their online stores as it was cheaper than actually using boxes. The business owners told me that they were going to invest in a washdown vffs bagger as they heard that it was a lot better than having someone sit there and trying to figure out what size bag is best. I did not want to have any room for human error on my assembly line so I too decided that I was going to go and spend some time with the different sales people that were going to go and show me how this machine could save me time and money and I knew that this was going to be a great business deduction this year. Continue reading
When my doctor told me that I was having twins, I was beyond happy but also I was a bit worried. This pregnancy was not expected, and we had just purchased a two bedroom house that we both absolutely love. I knew that we would need something much bigger since he uses the second bedroom as his home office. I did not want to move though, and that is when my husband told me to look at different architects in Southeast London to see if any of them would be able to build an extension onto the house without it costing us a fortune. Continue reading
When my daughter told me that she wanted to go on a field trip with her class, I was supportive in most ways but hesitant in a major way. I trust her teachers, and I knew there would be plenty of chaperones along to help the kids with whatever they needed. I also knew that it would be a great experience for her, and the memories alone would make it worth it. My only concern was the coach hire they would be using, because I didn’t have any experience with them.
I am not a paranoid person in general, but this is my only daughter and she means the world to me. I already knew that she would be watched over well, but I did want to check out the transportation company that would be getting her and her classmates from their school to their destination over 400 miles away. Continue reading
Obviously a lot of people could never do what I am doing, but at the moment I have a job where I am basically able to work any place that I want to work. It is pretty much as though I am an independent contractor. All I need is to have a computer and access to the Internet. In fact I need two computers, one of them has to be very powerful in fact and the other just needs to be able to handle graphics. I was a bit worried that I might have left one in a Bristol Taxi, but in fact I had left it in the Hotel lobby and they called me up right when I was about to have a panic attack. Continue reading
Lately I have started to become more and more security conscious after I was robbed a few months ago. It was a terrible experience to know that someone had gone through all of my things, that they had access to every part of my life within my home. I resolved to never allow that to happen again and instead focuses on security, buying myself a network of cctv systems to install throughout my house and even outside the house. It might seem extreme but how else are we supposed to protect that which is ours? It is said that for residential crimes they are more likely to prevent robberies. I thought about installing an entire security system in the house but found that it was far too expensive compared to the camera system that I had found. If you want to be able to keep your family safe and secure from those that might seek to violate your right to privacy and right to live, this is the way to do it. Continue reading
- What would happen if someone with O- blood received blood from any other blood type donor? Would getting AB+ transfusion be more severe then getting A- or O+? I’m not worried about it happening to me, just curious.
Answer by Duncan The Puppy
Well, there are some blood types that are called “universal” (see link, below) so, depending on what they got, it might or might not harm them.
Good luck!… ☺
- My daughter has O positive blood type. I am B postitive and my husband has O positive. What is the significance of having this particular blood type?
Answer by essentiallysolo
blood types are genetically inherited, your daughter is O positive because her father is O positive, most kids inherit their father’s blood type. The only significance is that if your daughter ever needs a blood transfusion, she needs to recieve O postive blood.
- I bought a jell-o jelly bean mold, but I’ve lost the recipe card it came with. It’s a red tray that you can make jelly bean shaped jell-o jigglers in. Thanks!
Answer by CAKW
Here is the link to the kraft site that has the recipe.
Hope this is the one you need.
They are called jell-o beans
I should probably learn how to multi-task but I have been getting caught up in things too much lately. I hate when I get a single-track focus on my mind, and then I forget about other stuff I am supposed to be doing. It is annoying in that it has happened to me a few times in the recent past. Anyway, I am shipping a lot of stuff to the 99012 area and I need to restock on some supplies soon. I am running low on some packaging materials and shipping labels as well. Well, I mean the paper that I use to print sticky shipping labels on. I am running low on that stuff.
I am thinking that I should probably look into a new supplier for this stuff, because it does not seem like I am getting the best prices in the world currently. I think that I should look online, because if I am going to find the best prices, I am probably going to find them online somewhere. I have had a long week, and i probably should place an order for some new supplies before I go home for the week.
But I really just want to pack up and now and go home. It has been that kind of week. I know I should be responsible though, so first I will do a bit of digging and see if I can find a place that has better prices than what we have been paying in the past. If I am not able to do that, then I guess I will just have to settle for the old prices and place an order for the supplies we need. Then I'll turn out the lights, gather my things, and head home to try to enjoy the weekend.Just Click Here
I am working down in the old historic part of the wharfs. This area used to be the West India Company docks and I am working in the Cannon Workshops area. It is more famous for the financial districts of course, but if you look at the names on the streets you can see where it has been an important part of the commercial aspect of the UK for a long time. I came down here looking for a gym in Canary Wharf at first, but when I was done here I happened to meet this guy who was putting a sign out for a job. I did not really need a job at the time, but I talked to the guy and it started to sound like a really good deal. The big thing for me is that I am not really tied to the office like I was in the past. The money is not any better than the old job.
The big thing is that I have one boss and he is totally not bugging me about any problems. In my old job it was sort of difficult to figure out who I was supposed to listen to. There was a very confused hierarchy and a bunch of people who all thought that they got to tell me what I needed to do. Of course when you have half a dozen people who think they are your boss it is a real problem and I was always saying that some other person told me to do some other thing. Some of the time they seemed to think that I was making stuff up, which I could have. That is because some of these people would not talk to some of the other people and thus none of them knew what the other was doing.Just Click Here
I am going to be looking for a new television provider in the near future. I have exhausted my patience with my previous provider, and I really think that I have decided to switch more due to their poor customer service, as opposed to the service that they were providing me with. I think that I am going to switch to satellite, because I have always been curious as to what it was like to have satellite television. As such, I am looking for texas satellite tv deals and packages that are available for great prices.
I do not want to spend a whole lot of money on a television package. I am not sure what the cut off point would be, but I definitely do not want to spend more than maybe 75 dollars per month, and I would like to spend less than that, if it is feasible. At the same time, I do want to have a rather large selection of channels to watch. I hope that I can figure out a way to get a lot of channels for my Satellite television, but not have to spend all that much money in order to do so.
As such, I am going to have to spend my fair share of time looking at different deals and comparing them, so that I can figure out the one that will work best for me. I hope to make a decision pretty soon, as I have already gone so far as to cancel my previous television service, and at the moment, I do not have any television in my house, which is a weird feeling. I can't remember the last time I did not have access to television, but it was probably more than 5 years ago, at the least.Just Click Here
I am not the type of person to follow a trend simply because others are doing it. I have my own style, and I refuse to compromise myself at all, even in regards to fashion. I don't like the stores in my hometown that sell clothing because it is either too conservative or just trying too hard to be trendy. Some of my friends wear these clothes, but I just cannot bring myself to buy something that I'm just not feeling. I did a search online for Festival Fashion hoping to find some really cool fashion outlets, and I found the only one that matters to me now.
As soon as I saw the clothes on the site, I knew that it was a store designed just for people like me. The styles were simply amazing. They allow people to showcase who they really are without throwing off any fake vibes. I looked at their jeans and skirts first, since I am usually in one or the other. I found several in both styles that I really liked, so my next mission was finding a few shirts that I could wear with any of them.
I like to mix and match a lot since it means I get more out of my clothes that way. I have no problem wearing a nice shirt with a fancy skirt or a pair of comfy jeans, and the shirts I found on this site are perfect for flexibility like that. I was also able to get accessories there too, which is pretty awesome since the prices are so reasonable that I was able to get more than I thought possible just on my first shopping trip there. It certainly wasn't my last though, as I find myself there every few weeks looking for something new!
Kids are fickle. They go from liking one thing to the next. Then they usually settle into something a bit weird during their teenage years. Then there is college and new likes. Our experience with a boy and a girl have us redecorating a little too often. They want certain colors of paint on the walls, and they want theme linens and curtains. We stopped the expense by picking normal paint tones and linens that are suitable for more than just a passing fad. However, we started using wall stickers to help them express their own decorating desires.
These things are really neat, and they let you redecorate a room in minutes. The kids usually add a few posters and maybe a couple knick knacks to go along with their new room designs, but overall it is far less expensive than a room makeover. The wall stickers are easy to apply and easy to remove. The nice thing is that they are inexpensive enough to get through the quickly passing decorating fads kids go through without breaking the budget. Our girl has had the big wall sticker behind her bed changed three times in the past year. It was far less expensive than repainting and buying new linens, and the big decal that goes on the wall expresses her new tastes that evolve quickly.
Our boy has only had his changed twice last year. He got his original one, then found one of a favorite TV character he likes. He has kept that one ever since. The black vinyl decals are easy to apply and come off without leaving any residue behind. You do not have to redo the wall when you put up a new sticker. You can get them in sizes to fit small spaces or large spaces. You can have more than one in a room if you want too. Usually one suffices since they do draw the eye.
