When my husband got laid off from his job, we had to get pretty creative so we did not lose the ability to pay our bills. We still had some income thanks to his unemployment benefits, but it was not enough to cover everything. We had several sheds filled with scrap metal that was on the property even before we bought it, and we just never did anything about them since we didn’t need to use the buildings. I suggested that we look at some companies to see what their scrap metal prices per pound were Read more […]Read More
There are all kinds of websites out there and different gurus giving advice on proper nutrition. Some advise eating just one type of thing as if it is a sort of miracle diet or cure. Intuition lets us know that is not true. If it really was, then absolutely everyone would be doing it. If you want to learn some of the things I did about nutrition, you can click here. The guy who does the blog is on a journey of discovery himself. There are certainly basics to a proper diet that cannot be scientifically ignored. Things such as red meat containing an enzyme that works on your heart. We know that high carb diets raise your blood glucose too. Oh, and those high protein diets are just plain crazy. No one needs that much protein and fat, and it will just wear out your kidneys.
I’m not saying you can never eat a piece of pie or have an ice cream cone. They just should not be go-to items to eat except for rare occasions. If you cannot picture yourself giving up some foods or eating more vegetables and fruits, then you might not be ready for the commitment to healthier eating. However, the longer you wait, the more chance you have of suffering from one of the serious diseases that are brought on by poor dietary choices. My goal is to avoid those things from getting any worse in my life. I already had gotten as far as Type 2 diabetes with nerve damage. I never thought I would ever get sick. I would eat bacon in large quantities with waffles and syrup and butter for breakfast. I remember using the last bites of a sausage patty to sop up the syrup on the plate. I got what I was asking for, and it was diabetes. Now my goal is to reverse some damage and get back to being healthy. It won’t happen overnight, but it is happening.Read More
When I found out that people are actually able to purchase views for YouTube, I was actually confused. I had no idea why someone would do this, but that changed when I realized that it is definitely to a person’s benefit to have high numbers when it comes to followers, views, and comments. Since I have been trying to build my own page up, I decided to see if I could buy YouTube views cheap. I did not have a lot of extra money just laying around, but I realized that I could actually make more money Read more […]Read More
I’ve lived my entire life in the Ozarks. I plan to never leave. The area is so beautiful. It makes me truly happy that I have the luck of living here. But outside of getting most of our news from the newspaper, we have not previously had the ability to get our hands on all the information on the Internet very easily that most of the country gets. That is because the few companies that offer Internet in our peaceful area have only given us the ability to use dial-up speed. But now I can get Missouri Read more […]Read More
As the battle of the handheld gaming systems hots up, one of the emerging must-haves is proving to be the capability of Wi-Fi gaming. As the term implies, Wi-Fi gaming involves playing games via a Wi-Fi internet connection to other players. The two most popular handheld gaming consoles, the PlayStation Portable (PSP) and the Nintendo DS, both allow Wi-Fi gaming, across the PlayStation Network and the Nintendo Wi-Fi Network, respectively. There’s nothing better than being able to play with your friends who are all hooking up in Airport Madness 4 and getting into a simulation match together.
Wi-Fi gaming allows users to compete against others connected to the internet nearby or even on the other side of the world. Even if you don’t have friends who have an interest in gaming, with 53 million Nintendo DS consoles and 25 million PSP consoles sold worldwide, it is unlikely that there won’t be anyone to play against, regardless of your preferred gaming genre. Wi-Fi networks are accessible within the transmitting range of a wireless access point, or hotspot. In the US, the city of Albuquerque, New Mexico, has gone as far as to offer free Wi-Fi access to all of its residents.
In the UK, Norwich is pioneering a free city-wide Wi-Fi project, employing 200 antennas to cover the city centre and three sectors of the city. Similar projects are being planned for other major UK cities, such as Manchester, London and Birmingham. For those not lucky enough to live in a city with a comparable scheme there are several free Wi-Fi connections in cafés, pubs and public places such as airports, and Nintendo have even struck a deal with McDonald’s in order to provide designated Wi-Fi access for the Nintendo Wi-Fi Network. In the UK there are currently 7500 branches offering this facility.Read More
I have a job pretty much as an errand boy for a guy who owns and manages apartments here in Winston Salem and High Point. Of course he hired my truck about as much as he hired me. I have an old truck and my Dad has an old landscaper type trailer. I started out doing odd jobs for him on the side. In fact that was probably a better deal for me up to a point. It was just one or two things a week, but he would pay me cash and fill my tank with gas usually as well. He gave me a gas card that I use, but Read more […]Read More
After learning that an old TV network would be revived through a satellite provider, I went to http://www.direct-satellite-tv.com/directv/pennsylvania/ to sign up for their service. The network used to come on regular TV many years ago, but it shut down after ratings became too low and operating costs became too high. It was a shame too, because the network was pretty popular in the old days, but many of the network’s best shows were cancelled. There were rumors of producers making all kinds of terrible decisions, like firring key people. Many other people who worked with the network and weren’t fired decided to leave on their own.
The rights to the network were sold off to someone who had the idea of bringing it back. He had watch the network in his youth, and wanted to see it return to its former glory. He hired many people who used to work at the network in the old days, along with some new people to take the place of those who chose not to return. News of the network coming back spread like wildfire across the Internet and news outlets. People would talk about all of the great shows from before, and speculated what would return.
On the day that the network was relaunched, the first show they aired was an updated version of the first show they aired when they first launched many years ago. Most of the original staff from that show was there, along with some new faces. The show was just as funny as I remember it all those years ago. The ratings for the first day of the network’s return were off the charts. The nostalgia everyone had for the network had carried it into a successful relaunch, and with each passing day, more people are getting satellite to see it.Read More
My cable bill is terrible right now. I just actually looked a the statement for the first time in a few months, and it was enough to make me sick, like literally sick. I do not know how they think it is okay to charge these bills, but I am going to switch my provider, or something. I am looking at cable-tv.com to see if there are other providers that I might be able to switch to in my area, and if so, what their prices look like. I definitely want to get digital cable, because my kids would start Read more […]Read More
If you want to buy a house I have been trying to figure out how exactly you can do it. Of course I mean the fine details of getting it done are sort of eluding me. I realize that there are some basic precepts, for example you definitely need to get the down payment. Of course I pretty much thought that was the big thing you had to do. However if you visit site here you can see them talk about one of the things I did not know, which is that you need to get home insurance before you can even get the bank to make you a loan on a house. The underlying principle is just as simple and plain as it can possibly be, that being that the bank wants you to give them their money back with interest. Obviously they have to protect themselves from al sorts of things which are not all that likely, but which could happen.
Now for example if you borrow a hundred thousand dollars on a house, you probably intend to have the house. However it is possible that the house could catch fire or there could a hurricane or a tornado or something like a flood. After this event the house might be worth ten dollars, in which case you probably do not want to pay ten thousand times what it is worth to the bank. That is why you get insurance if you are a bank. Of course the chances are that you do not have to worry too much about some biblical disaster flattening your house, but as long as there is a chance you have to protect yourself from it. At least if you are a banker and you are in this business you have to do it.Read More
I am a big fan of change. I know a lot of people don’t like it, but that is definitely not me. I know that when things change, that it usually means something has been improved. I am also smart enough to realize that this is not always the case, which is what happened when the operating system that got upgraded on my phone was not to my liking. I wanted to go back to my former operating system until all of the kinks were worked out, so I did an online search to see how to downgrade ios to the previous version.
I knew that there had to be a way to do it, but I had not done anything like that before. I was prepared to spend a few hours to find out how to do it, but it took me just mere minutes to find what I needed to know. The website that I used was extremely informative on how to downgrade my operating system, and it did not take me long at all before I had my phone back to how I liked it. Everything worked perfectly once again, and that is all that mattered to me.
I honestly thought that it was going to take a lot longer to downgrade, but the site I used was both detailed yet simple. I knew exactly what to do because it was not described in extreme technical details. They even had pictures and a video, so someone like my sister, who is not technical at all, would have no problem downgrading her phone either. I will end up using the newer operating system once they have it sorted out, but right now, it just stalls a lot of the apps that I use on a daily basis. Getting my old version back was such a relief so I could use them again!Read More
