I Find That It’s Important to Make Sure My Daughter is Safe

Posted on 14 June 2016 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

When my daughter first asked for a phone, we were a little hesitant because she was only 5 years old at the time. She is always with us, so we really felt there was no good reason to get her one. But now that she is older, it is important that she can contact us when she needs to. But we also need the ability to watch to see who she calls and who calls her, so I started looking at phone monitoring software reviews to find something that would easily let us monitor that.

While it is possible to monitor things through our mobile phone company’s website, there is a definite lag between when phone calls going in and out of her phone show up on their site. Her father and I need to be able to monitor things in real time. Some people feel that monitoring their children is overkill, but we know three different sets of parents who didn’t do so, and their children ended up in trouble because their parents did not know what was going on.

One of the sets of parents are my own sister and my brother-in-law. They are pretty laid back, and thought it was amusing when I mentioned monitoring what their daughter is doing on her phone. But they were no longer amused, when their 16 year old daughter got in with the wrong crowd and was using her phone to make plans to sneak out at night. They had previously told her to stop hanging around a certain group of her friends, and she promised she would. Had they been watching her phone calls, they would have learned that she didn’t drop them at all. She snuck out late one night, got very drunk and her friends just left her in a park alone, while she was passed out. This would not have happened with phone logging abilities.

I Learned Something New About a Popular Ingredient

Posted on 11 June 2016 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

I love to use natural remedies, but I have only recently started using a variety of things as such. For example, I did not previously know that there are several ginger root uses outside of using it for food. In addition, I only started actually using it myself for things that I cook around 5 years ago. I feel so behind! Of course, I ordered different dishes at restaurants that used it as an ingredient. I had just never had the occasion to do it myself.

In the past, I was not a fan of cooking. I often ate out at restaurants and fast food places instead. But since I now have cable and loved to watch all the cooking shows that are on, I have finally developed an interest. Read the rest of this entry…

Supplying the Country with Tortillas

Posted on 16 November 2015 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

Time is of the essence when it come to food storage. From the moment when food is prepared to the time it is packaged, there are factors working against it that try to reduce the freshness of the food and make it rot faster. That’s why I have an Modified Atmosphere Packaging system set up in my production plant. All of the flour tortillas in my state essentially come from one place, and that’s my plant. Dough is mixed on a daily basis and pressed and cooked into soft tortillas, that are then packed in sets of 10.

The tortillas are a big hit with the locals, and people in bordering states have enjoyed them as well. Read the rest of this entry…

The Worst Part is over

Posted on 6 September 2015 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

There was a time when I wanted to be an exterminator in NYC, but I quickly got over that idea after seeing how much they have to deal with each day. Rats are bad enough, but there are bugs, spiders, raccoons, and sometimes even snakes that appear in their line of work. That’s a little too much for me to have to handle. I hate having to deal with the bugs in my home. While I was sleeping one day, a roach crawled onto my face and woke me up. I screamed and ran off into the bathroom to wash my face. That moment was enough for me to call an exterminator as quickly as possible.

The exterminator did a quick pesticide job by spraying around inside and outside the home. I could’t go back into the house for hours because of that roach that crawled on me. Every time I would think about it, shivers would go up and down my spine, and I would get goosebumps. It felt so weird to have the roach crawling on my face. It was as light as a feather, but the legs were just so weird. It was something that I didn’t want feel again.

After the exterminator came, some of the bugs that were hiding in my home came out, but only to die. They turned upside down and had their legs stuck in the air. It was a relaxing sight to see them not moving. I vacuumed them up and flushed them down the toilet. I cleaned up my home to make sure that there weren’t any more bugs left over and I couldn’t find any. After that, I took a nap and had a nice dream about clouds. I wasn’t awakened by any bugs crawling on my face or anywhere else.

I Don’t Mind Being the Third Wheel

Posted on 15 June 2016 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

For as long as I can remember I have had a secret fantasy. I have never told anyone in real life because I was afraid they would pass judgement on me for it. My secret is that I would like to participate in a threesome. I am a woman and I have no preference about whether it is two men, two women or a heterosexual couple. I think the thing that I like the most about the idea of a threesome is the possibility that all that attention is focused on me. So this weekend I joined a 3some website.

I joined the website not knowing what to expect. Would there be a lot of shady people looking to pull one over on me? Would there be lots of catfishing going on? Would anyone even be interested in me? Well it turns out I didn’t need to be worried. I spoke to several people. Some were couples, others were just open minded individuals like myself. I didn’t have anyone misrepresent themselves and I got plenty of interested messages. I settled on a heterosexual couple who are in their thirties like me. She worked in a bar and he was in construction. They were both physically fit, attractive outdoorsy types. Read the rest of this entry…

Drying Clothes on Clotheslines is Making a Comeback

Posted on 8 November 2015 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

When I was a kid I remember my mom doing the laundry in a washing machine that had a wringer to squeeze the excess water out of clothes. It was two rollers that pinched the clothes and squeezed them as they were wrung out. If you got too close feeding a towel or other piece of clothing through, your fingers would get wrung! It was dangerous enough that people would probably sue today if they were being sold here. Anyway, what I really liked was line dried clothes. I was wondering if the clotheslines my mom used were still being made, so I looked them up online.

Grandma had the long clothesline in the back yard that was between two upright metal posts in the shape of a “T.” Each side of the “T” had a line run. Mom had two umbrella style clotheslines that looked like an umbrella that got turned upward in the wind and had the fabric torn off. I can still see her using those every Tuesday, which was laundry day at our house. Read the rest of this entry…

She Hit the Garage Door

Posted on 4 November 2015 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

My neighbor should not be driving anymore. In fact, she should have had her license taken away quite a while ago. She is almost 90 years old, and she is starting to show her age in everything she does. She lives on her own, but her daughter comes and sees her every day to make sure she is okay. When she came yesterday, it was because I had called her. I told her she needed to contact GL Garage Door Services again because her mother had hit her garage door when she pulling into the garage bay.

I think she had intended to stop while in the driveway, but she must have hit the gas pedal instead of the brakes. Read the rest of this entry…

What Does a Senior Companion Do?

Posted on 6 September 2015 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

I was wondering this after I met a girl on the train the other day. I was just making small talk with her, although she was rather attractive and I would have been glad to do more than that if the chance presented itself. At any rate she and I were talking and after the fact I realized that I should have asked her what does a senior companion do? She told me that she had a job working as a senior companion in Long Island. I was not really paying close attention to what she was saying though and when I got to the office I tried to look it up, but there was not much information available on the web.

I Should Have Listened to My Neighbor’s Suggestion for Home Security

Posted on 21 August 2015 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

My home and my neighbor’s home was broken into a couple of months ago. Before that happened, I always felt incredibly safe. But after the break in, I found myself racing to the windows to look outside every time I heard any little noise. My neighbor, whose home was broken into as well, said that he visited http://home-security.io/adt-security/ and signed up to get an alarm put into his home. I was not sure that I wanted one, so I put it off.

During this time, I had been dating a guy who I had only known for about 6 months. He was not friends with anyone I knew, and I did not know anything about his past. I learned the hard way that you really should do your homework when it comes to dating someone new. Read the rest of this entry…

Got a New Place Near Wrigley Field

Posted on 16 July 2015 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

There is no view of the ball park from where I live. If I look out my window I can see down to where the kids wait for home runs on Addison. My place is diagonal from that intersection and it is close to perfect for me right now. It has a security system from ADT in Chicago, but I have to figure out what it costs to get the monitoring service. Obviously it is not that useful without it, but the monthly cost of it has to make sense for me. I am really on a budget and unless the price is pretty low I will do without it. I think the system must be pretty old at any rate. It has none of the really fancy features that ADT advertises on their TV commercials. There are no video cameras or anything like that.

Explaining High Speed Internet to My Older Parents

Posted on 1 December 2014 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

I got online on my phone to see if there was high speed Internet in my area. Well, not my area now, but the area where I used to live. Mom and dad still live in the same house in the same rural area. I’m in a suburb of a major city about 50 miles away from them. I have not checked on Internet access upgrades to that rural area in years. I figured they now had it, but all I remember is not having it as a teenager not that many years ago.

I checked to see if there was high speed Internet in my area that I moved to. It was a prerequisite of me choosing this place. Read the rest of this entry…

Just Got Up to Indiana

Posted on 14 October 2014 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

I spent the morning up at the campus of Indiana University Purdue University Fort Wayne. They were pretty much ready to hire me on the spot and that was a surprise to me. I expected that it was going to be a couple of weeks before I heard back, but apparently this is exigent circumstances and they are moving a lot faster than you would expect from this sort of institution. Usually things move at a glacial pace when you deal with these sorts of things. I had to start looking at the local internet providers and they actually found me a place to stay already. The guy knew that I would have difficulty just picking up and moving up there, so he arranged it for me to move in to this vacant studio apartment that belonged to a friend of his. It is far from ideal in many ways, but the price is superb and the location is almost perfect.

I can roll out of bed here, shower, grab something to eat and walk to my office in less than 15 minutes. This is literally the closest place that there is to the office that there is. At least it is about as close as it can be. The guy who owns it is a computer scientist and sort of a wild guy. He is about ten years older than I am and he has this really long pony tail of jet black hair. It goes half of the way down his back. I would guess that the guy probably does not remember the last time that he went to get his hair cut. He is a nice enough guy and quite easy to get along with. Apparently he does not like a long commute though and likes to be this close to his job.

Started Working on the Blog

Posted on 14 July 2014 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

It is not something that I begged for, but I have sort of become the company blogger. It started out rather innocently, because the boss wanted to know if there was some sort of WordPress support services that he could call to help him out with this. At that point it was not really a blog, just an idea that he was working on. In fact the blog is not really there for it’s own purpose. It is there to help promote the stuff that is on the web page. If you are like me and you do not understand how it works, then stuff is confusing.

Customers Prefer Video Production to Written Content

Posted on 6 June 2014 under Uncategorized | Comments Off

If you really want what you are selling to take off on the Internet, have a video made. No, I am not talking about something you slap together and post on a free video site. I am talking about a professional video. Those types of things used to be unaffordable except by the biggest companies. But now small business owners and entrepreneurs can have access to professional video production company experts and their tools. A pro corporate video can be used in anything from training to advertising. I now use them for both.

My first one was for my first product I offered for sale on the Internet. I borrowed money to have it made. It paid for itself in no time after i put it on the front page of my website. It is the first thing potential customers see.
