I Just Started My New Job

Of course I would have been really happy if this job had come with a normal time schedule, but unfortunately this is a night job working to make sure that everything runs smoothly in an enormous factory. I really have discovered how much sleep matters now, because I have not been getting the type of sleep that you need to function properly and to be happy in your life as well. You need a lot of sleep to have everything work right and it is a lot better if you get a good sort of sleep, although I did a poor job of expressing it. Continue reading

Hot Lattes and Muffins for Everyone

To celebrate the purchase of the new coffee maker that I found on Cuppabean, I decided to have a latte party for all of my friends. The best thing to have with a latte is a sweet pastry, so I baked some cranberry muffins to go along with the lattes. I usually have a party when I want to try out some new recipes. I found this particular recipe from a cooking show that comes on during the weekends. My friends always look forward to the parties that I have, because they usually get to try the great creations that I make.

There was one case where someone couldn’t eat the food that I made because of an allergy. I made peanut butter cookies, and this person had a peanut allergy. Luckily for this person, there were no peanuts in the lattes or the muffins, so they could enjoy them both. My friends ate all of the muffins and drank all of the lattes. Continue reading

A Great Website is Important

I can design a decent looking website, but it is obvious to anyone that it is not professionally done. For just my friends and family though, it is nice. When I decided to open up my website for commercial purposes, I knew that I would need to have a more professional looking website. I wanted people to take my artwork seriously, so that meant I had to take my website seriously. I did a search online for the best people to help me with this, and that is how I found Kiwi websites web development.

I was actually surprised at the price they charge to do everything. I know the value of time and talent, but I also was grateful because I am not exactly rolling in the money. I honestly thought that I would end up starting with them, and then maybe move on to a company that charges more. I was just equating price with talent, which was a huge mistake on my part. I was able to look at some work they have done for other people and businesses, and I was impressed to say the least. Continue reading

Everyone Wants to Live Here

It’s been close to a year since I moved into Parc Esta in Singapore, and my life has gone through some changes. When I first moved in, I didn’t know anyone, but that quickly changed after I started meeting people who live in the condos and we became friends. And once I met my girlfriend, things became even more exciting. I changed jobs to one that has a higher salary and easier work. It’s like I hit the lottery in life, or I have some kind of great luck. The only thing that could make my life better, is if I had an endless supply of food, but I guess we can’t have everything.

I originally planned to be living in Singapore for just a couple of years, but I think it would be better if I stayed here permanently. When I think about the life that I used to have when I was living back in New York, it wasn’t really ideal. Continue reading

Making My Way Through a Different Set of Forms

When I was working a normal job, all I had to do was put the information from my W-2 onto the tax forms and do a few calculations. It was boring, but it was easy enough for a guy like me who isn’t knowledgeable on everything taxes. Now I do work at home, which means I have to file self employment taxes. Filling out everything isn’t as simple, because I don’t get a W-2 or even a 1099. I had to get a little help from tax software for tax preparers in filling out my taxes this year.

Self employment requires that individuals file a Schedule C and Schedule SE. Continue reading

I’ll Never Have to Mow Again

For a guy my age, my idea of fun is not walking around outside in the hot summer sun with a lawn mower in front of me. Even when I was a younger man, I never really liked mowing the lawn. A riding mower would eliminate the need to push a mower, but I would still be out in the hot sun, sweating away. Instead, I opted for a better grass cutting alternative. After reading a Worx automatic lawn mower review, I was convinced that the future of lawn mowing was having the mower cut the lawn by itself.

The mower work in a similar manner to those floor vacuuming robots. The mower makes its way across the entire lawn, detecting and avoiding objects that may be in its way. Continue reading

I Need to Learn Some Business Concepts

Of course like a lot of people I have always wanted to be my own boss, but it is not nearly as simple as it seems when you are a kid thinking about it in school. In my case I started to think about it as soon as I was old enough to have a job of my own and figure out that I had real issues with people yelling at me and bossing me around. Obviously some bosses are better than others, but I never cared for the concept. Right now I have to think about business tradelines, which is a simple concept really and one which is pretty much vital to nearly any endeavor when you are not so wealthy that you really do not need a job to start off. This sometimes as simple as a credit card, but one which has a high enough limit and reasonable enough terms so that you can use it to finance your day to day operations in a venture.

My Dog is Really Hyperactive

Of course I think that he has some issues relating to socialization and that sort of thing. I have read that the puppy should stay with their mother for so long and learn how to behave from her. When a puppy bites the mother too hard it will bite back as a lesson to it. However Hershey’s mother was old and had a serious issue when he was born. They had to put her down. At any rate he has to learn stuff. I got him some custom dog socks to try to keep him from clawing everyone when he is playing with you. He has not yet learned not to jump up on people and there is not any sign that he is going to learn right now. Continue reading

I Wanted to Feel Safe Again After Getting out of the Military

When I went into the military, I did so after living in my parent’s house where I had grown up. After I got out of the military, I decided to move to a large city in the same state. It turns out that ADT Louisville became pretty important to me after being on my home here for the first time in my life. I never thought about my safety when I lived at home. When I was in the military, I was always safe when living on base. So, I had never had to worry about it before, and getting an alarm is the only way to get back to feeling secure again after never needing to worry about it at any point in my life before.

After I went into the military, I never really thought about my safety each day on our base until a fellow soldier told me that he was from a city in our country that is well known for having high crime statistics. He said that he feared for his life many times when he lived there. Continue reading

You Need to Find the School That Works for You

What is the best truck driving school is a question I’ve heard a lot from people looking to break into the industry. I heard it from my nephew just last month. He’s looking to get his CDL and drive for a couple of years to save up for school and thought I could help get him situated since I’ve been driving for years. The problem is that I couldn’t help him with his question. I never went to a school. I worked on the docks for a company and one of their drivers taught me everything I needed to know in the parking lot.

Nowadays, it’s a different story. Companies want you to have the credential that an accredited trucking driving school can bring to the table. I’ve known a few younger guys who came into the business the last few years, a few of whom drove with me for a few weeks to make their bones before going out on their own, and they didn’t talk about the schools that much. They learned what they needed to learn. The real experience comes out on the road anyway. Continue reading

Helping Our Son Get to Where He Needs to Be in Physics

I could not just sit back and watch our son get bad grades in the sciences. He was convinced he could not learn the things he needed to know to get good grades. My wife and I set out on a quest to help him learn to appreciate and have a desire to learn more of the sciences. Since physics was his worst subject, and since it is in just about every science, we started there by getting him a highly dynamic tutor at

I know that a tutor that had a lot of passion for the subject I was lacking in really helped me when I was struggling in school. Continue reading

My Son’s Breakthrough Came Through Puzzles

My son has developmental issues. He is slower than most of the other kids his age in learning things, but he is slowly catching up to them because of the different things that I do with him. For me, I have found that making learning more about fun than actual learning is the key to his development. He is a typical boy who would rather be outside playing ball or riding his bike, so it was challenging at first for me too. When I bought him a children foam puzzle that came highly recommended in a forum that I am part of, I was not expecting the results that I actually got from it. Continue reading

Best Protection from the Elements

I decided to invest in a blitz vest seeing as how I’ll be visiting my brother in Michigan this year and we’re planning on heading up north to do some serious hunting and fishing. If you’ve ever been in Northern Michigan during the fall months, you know you’re in for wet and cold weather. I went last year and just about froze to death because I didn’t get the right gear. My brother had to loan me some of his cast offs just so I could survive on a day to day basis. It’s best to be dressed for warmth.

It’s also best to find clothing that doesn’t restrict your movement. There’s nothing worse than trying to line up a shot on a deer only to discover that the heavy jacket you wore, over several layers of clothing, is now suddenly restricting your arm movements. Continue reading

Tiny Hitchhikers from North Dakota

When I came back from my trip to North Dakota, I discovered that I brought back some unexpected passengers. Somehow bed bugs had gotten into my bag and made a home in my home. I didn’t see any bed bugs in the hotel room I was staying in, so it was quite a mystery how they got into my bag. Regardless of how they got there, I had to get rid of them, so I looked for bed bug control for Phoenix immediately. I didn’t want the problem to grow so large that I would be forced out of my home permanently.

The pest control company came and sprayed all over my home to kill the bed bugs. I had to wash all of my clothes and sheets in extremely hot water to make sure that none of the bugs tried to hide in them. While the spray was doing its work, I decided to stay in another hotel. I looked all over my room to make sure that there were no bugs this time. Continue reading

Building Our Business Quickly by Using a Pre-Engineered Metal Building

In less than a couple of months we went from figuring out what type of building we needed on our property to having construction begin when we picked from one of the pre-engineered metal buildings a company was offering. Everything from the air handling system to the interior use areas was planned and the materials delivered quickly. The construction crew worked fast and methodically. I was so happy to have our structure built before winter so we could occupy the space for use. I picked this company because they are the same company that provides buildings for the Marcellus shale natural gas development projects in the area where I live.

I am not talking about a steel shed. Continue reading

I Really Appreciate the Help I Get for My Mom

When I look back on a variety of things in life, I can’t remember a time when my parents talked to me about what we should do if they became incapable of living alone in their senior years. Dad suddenly passed many years ago, but my mom is still alive. She can’t live alone, so I let her move in with me. Someone who does home health care in Fort Lauderdale comes each day to help out. It really is working out nicely. It allows me to continue working, and having a caregiver come over daily helps to ensure that mom has company when I am at work.

I have always been close to my parents, however, mom and I have become even closer over the years. Continue reading

I Am Trying to Earn Some Money

I have been working pretty hard this summer and I still do not have quite enough money for the car that I want. I have been doing a good deal of work for this divorce lawyer in Salem MA. He has a bunch of rental houses in the area outside of Cambridge and he rents out to a lot of college students. It is a good thing that he has this old pick up truck and that he trusts me to drive it around. If he did not then I would be out of luck so far as his work is concerned. You have to be mobile to get from one place to the other and obviously having a truck is a huge help, since a lot of this requires that you move stuff around. Specifically I do lots of yardwork and that is fine with me really. I like working in the sun, although that is going to be gone with the change of seasons. Continue reading

How I Started My Own Tax Preparation Business

My family told me that I should quit my job and go into the tax preparation business. Well, I got a job in the industry instead. However, after working a full season for another provider, I researched the best tax preparation software to use for a tax preparation service. I found that there was a company out there that provided tax software for individuals with an EFIN to use in their own business.

I had originally thought that only big tax prep companies could afford to develop their own software, but there is a company out there that makes it for private tax prep providers. They even have a package for software and to get your EFIN if you do not already have it. I see clients at my home, and on some occasions even at their homes. I make a good living at this. I used to prepare taxes for nothing for my family. I even did my uncle’s taxes for his plumbing business, and he was lousy at keeping good records. I had to fix up his books and track down receipts just to make him audit proof. Continue reading

Commercial Insurance for Our New Business

When my husband and I decided to open up our own business, we split some of the important tasks up that had to be done before we could open our doors to the public. He took care of the majority of it, but there were some things he wanted me to handle. Finding an accountant was easy enough, and that left me plenty of time to look into the different Saskatchewan commercial insurance options that we had available to us. We knew that we needed to have insurance before we even opened our doors because without insurance coverage, one mishap could ruin our dreams.

Insurance is just a necessity in life. We have it for so many things in our personal lives. I have car insurance to protect me when I am in the car. I have life insurance to protect my husband should something happen to me. I have health insurance to help me if I am injured or ill. Continue reading
