The Loss of a Car and Finances

The very first time that I had my car stolen, I was shocked. I could have never imagined a scenario that would leave me standing there in the parking lot of the mall staring at the spot where my car used to be. At first, I honestly believed that I misremembered where I parked – it wouldn’t be the first time that it’s happened! You can bet that the experience taught me a lot about myself and about what I needed to do – get a keyless theft prevention system that would ensure I could never have my car stolen from someone with my key again.

That’s apparently what had happened! They had found my spare key that I kept under the car in a small magnetic box, just in case something happened. (more…)

My Dad Junoed from a Plane

What do you get for a person who has everything they could possibly want? That has been my dilemma with my parents for a long time, and I finally realized that buying them an experience rather than an actual physical gift was the best thing I could do for them. For my dad’s last birthday, I decided to look into skydiving in the UK. He has often told us stories of when he was in the military, and his one regret was that he never got to skydive on a regular basis.

He has jumped out of a few planes, but it was at least 30 years ago, and I knew that he would cherish the experience to do that again. I wanted to do it for both of them, but I knew my mom would never agree to jump out of a plane that is a couple of miles above us in the sky. My dad is super adventurous though, and he was excited when I told him what I had bought him. (more…)

Prices from Reliant Energy in Texas

I am always looking for a discount, or a way to save money. A friend of mine told me that he buys his electricity through Reliant Energy, and that the prices were really good. I was a bit skeptical, because I thought I was paying the least for electricity, that any provider offers in this area. I ended up doing some searches, and I eventually found, , and I have been looking at it for the last couple of minutes. It does seem like the prices that are quoted on this site, are slightly less than what I am currently paying for my electricity.

That is a bit astonishing to me, and I did not think it would be the case. (more…)

Best CC TV Systems for Security

I have been worried about the babysitter for awhile, and I do not really trust her. It all started when I noticed that one of my beers was missing. If a teenager is willing to steal a beer from their employer, there is no telling what the actual lengths of their depravity are. I will be looking for cctv systems, so that I can buy one for my house, and monitor what the babysitter is actually doing when I am out with my wife. She really messed up when she stole that beer from me, and I am going to make sure that I find out what she is doing.

I would not be the least bit surprised that she was doing other illicit things around the house, such as smoking, and heaven forbid, illicit drugs. I really hope that I am just overreacting and that this is not actually such a serious situation. (more…)

Teaching a Search Engine How to Think

I often think about our relationship with search engines. Google has become both verb and entity. It's a word that has taken on a profundity of meaning as to almost predict its own impact upon how we treat the meaning and naming of things. Exposure to the Internet has changed how we think about the way we communicate. Emoticons are memes are used to convey specific emotional expressions otherwise poorly conveyed with only words. Even the simple line in an advertisement like click here is one now laden with meaning driven from our experiences on the Internet. Google and the rapid rise of popularity of texting have influenced change in the way we speak. Approaching Google with a query that is unfortunately vague is something we've all experienced. In that moment before a search we seek to define ambiguity as best as we are able. Doing so requires us to choose our words carefully as if they Digest A Little More
