I did not know why I was there at first, but it did not take me long to figure it out. Jack’s mom showed me a credit card statement and told me that she was going to cut him off if he did not stop blowing her money on blonde escorts. Apparently she had sent a private investigator to figure out what was going on with the boy, although he is forty three years old. She knows me and she knows that Jack might listen to me. Of course when I got there he just laughed at me, although he was not laughing when I told him that his credit card was about to stop working. Continue reading » The Boss Lady Sent Me to Las Vegas
The aesthetic doctors in Singapore did a great job of giving me a full head of hair again. I was having a bad thinning problem that initially started at the crown of my head and spread to the other areas. It looked like I was going through some kind of terrible illness that was causing my hair to fall out. I had to buy a wig from a wig store and wear it around to keep my hair condition hidden. I didn’t like the way the wig looked and I was always worrying about everyone being able to tell that it wasn’t my real hair.
Once I went into the clinic to have my head examined and possibly to get some kind of treatment, I found out that while my hair was in bad shape, the problem could be reversed using a special laser treatment. Continue reading » Kicking the Wig to the Curb
I was chosen to head up this year’s corporate party entertainment for our annual party. I do have a knack for picking things that are fun for our office group, so I was excited to see what I could do for the entire corporation. Normally, the things I choose are for our small group of around 20 people, but I was in charge of entertainment for all of the departments. That meant around 200 people along with all of their guests, so it would be upwards of 400 people in total.
I knew that my small office games would not suffice, so I went online to see if I could find something that would be more suitable for such a large crowd. Continue reading » A Good Time Was Had by All
I knew that it was going to be a great year to take my raised truck in the mud when it was raining every day. Many people said that they were not sure if it was going to be enough rain to get a great mud that is fun to go through, but I knew that it was going to be perfect. I was going to look for mobile auto detailing in Billings to see if there were places that were going to be able to get my truck clean again. I have a red truck and the mud was so bad that you would think that my truck is actually brown. My son told me that he could not believe how much mud we got inside the car. Continue reading » Mudding Has Been Good This Year
My husband and I said that we were going to have to move to a new home because our old one was just too big for us. Our daughter had gone to college and I knew that things were changing for us as well. I wanted to move to a smaller house because I did not want to clean an extra bedroom and and extra bathroom if I did not have to. I had to look up cleaning services in Singapore to find someone that Our house was large but we made it a home for many years. Continue reading » Starting All over in a New Home
Thanks to Singapore Physics Tuition, I know have a much firmer grasp on Astronomy than I did when I decided to sign up for a course on the subject at the university. You would think the class itself would teach the subject well, but that wasn’t the case. I’ve found it’s pretty critical to mesh well with an instructor when you are studying a topic that is difficult or that does not come easily to you. I went in for additional help very early on because I knew if I didn’t catch on quickly I would fail the course.
The instructor tried his best, but just couldn’t make any headway against my inability to grasp the subject. Continue reading » Extensively Covers All Branches of Physics
Having never lived in an urban area before, I wasn’t use to the fact that my new city isn’t as safe as my small town life was. I noticed that a lot of my neighbors use ADT in Phoenix for home security, so I decided to follow suit and get an alarm system installed in my house, too. I could easily see how doing so helps people to feel more at ease in their homes and while they are away from home, too. I may not have the ability to leave my door unlocked all day like I did in the very quiet country city where i used to live, but I can still stay safe with no problem by simply pushing the button on my security system now.
Back home, it was rare to see many cars on the road at night. This is because many of the local businesses close at 8PM. Families often spend time together at night, and most people there find very little need to go out to do things after the sun goes down. Continue reading » Life in a Big City is Not Like It is in Small Towns
I tried hard to work with my father at his business, but I am not a good salesman. I know that it disappointed my dad. He was also irritated at first when I left his company and began working at a company that does moving out cleaning in Singapore. He couldn’t understand the appeal, but he finally understood when I left that company and started my own company doing the very same type of work. It was then that he understood that I had simply wanted the experience so that I could learn enough to run a business the right way.
Dad has always felt that I am lazy. I would agree with him that I was very lazy when I was much younger. Continue reading » I Had to Learn How to Do Things for Myself
My daughter excels in all of her classes now, but that was not always the case. She was an A student in all of her classes but physics. She told me that she just didn’t feel anything for the subject, and that there was no excitement there. I told her that physics is probably the most fun science there is because it helps us to understand the world around us. I gave her a challenge, because I knew she would not be able to say no. I told her about a JC physics tuition that I had researched.
I told her that if she would go there and learn privately in a small group, I knew that her entire outlook on physics would change. I also promised her that if she went and did not like it after a couple of weeks, I would drop it. She took the challenge, just as I knew she would.

I had a child very young, and I have struggled a bit in life because of it. But I wouldn’t give my little boy up for anything. I would not go back in time to change things because he is my world. My life is happier with him in it. So, when I found myself tired of living in the garage at my parent’s place, I wanted to go look at apartments for rent in Forest VA so that I could get a nice place for my son and I. My parents let me live with them so that I could save money. I did that for three years straight. I saved every little coin that I could, and now I have a nice little nest egg. I was ready to get something that would be nice for both my son and me. Continue reading » I Wanted a Nice Life for Me and My Son
I have always lived on my own. I know that some people would rather have a roommate so they can lower their individual costs, but I was willing to pay more so I can have my privacy. I like other people well enough, but I knew that I was too set in my ways to ever want to live with another person. When I started looking for apartments for Henderson NV when I got transferred there at my request, I knew exactly what I wanted. Because of that, it did not take me long to find it.
What really helped me the most was being able to look at pictures online of the different apartments in the area. Continue reading » Living Here is the Best of Both Worlds
When my wife called me crying a few weeks ago, I thought the worst had happened. We have four children, and I thought something happened to one of them. She didn’t make me wait too long though, for which I am extremely grateful. She told me that she was at her wit’s end, because she was not able to get the air conditioner working at our house. She wanted to know if she should call a company that does air conditioning repair in NYC. I asked her a few questions, but it was pretty obvious that we were not going to be able to fix it over the phone with me 2000 miles away on a business trip.
I told her I would look online for the company that we should use, and I would contact them. Continue reading » My Wife and Kids Were Overheated
The really neat thing about new residential condominiums in Singapore is what I see as the competition to do better than the last building that went up. It kind of reminds me of the technology wars when it comes to cell phone makers. Each architectural firm and construction company designs finer structures than the last ones built. They even outdo themselves. I kind of see this in the New Futura condo being built. It is being readied for occupancy this year, but will not be entirely finished. The artist renditions are pretty amazing.
The New Futura condo project will have a north and south tower. They are designed to resemble golden beacons at night. The 23rd level has aqua centers for each tower. The swimming pool shapes are different at each tower. Continue reading » Building Bigger and Better in Singapore
I have lived with my parents for 22 years. Even when I went to college, I just commuted from home because it was cheaper and more convenient for me. However, once I graduated, a great job offer came from halfway across the country. Even though it was my first time away from home, I was excited to start the next chapter of my life. My dad was a little more reserved than me though. I had found a great rental house, and my dad contacted ADT in Colorado Springs even before the moving truck pulled out of their driveway.
He is a police officer, so I can understand his worry about his only daughter moving 1,500 miles away. It would be different if I had been on my own before too, so he had more reasons to worry than most fathers. Continue reading » Moving Far from My Parents
I was taught early on that males are not supposed to care how they look. It’s true that the majority of men do not feel that they need to wear makeup. In addition, society tells males that we should not wear it. Despite that, I found myself wishing that I could wear makeup like my wife does so that I could look better each day, too. After bringing that up to her, she pointed out that I can go to an aesthetic doctor instead because a doctor can change the way my skin looks permanently. I want to make it known that I wasn’t interested in wearing eyeshadow and lipstick, I simply thought it would be a good idea to wear some sort of foundation that would help to even out the way my facial skin looked.
I got the idea for wearing some sort of skin-colored makeup after I watched my wife wiping off her makeup one night before bed. She does not have bad skin by any means, but it was surprising to see that she does have some discoloration. I had never noticed it because she so often uses cosmetics. Having disliked the odd-looking brown spots on my face for years, I was thinking that I could use the same skin-colored foundation to hide the spots that stand out on my skin so much.
My wife thought it would be interesting to let me use her foundation to see if I felt better about myself after using it. She applied it carefully to my face and then handed me a mirror. The difference was like night and day. However, it was only a temporary fix. She made an appointment for me with a doctor who treats uneven skin. The results of the treatments look great and are permanent. This makes much more sence to me than using a product that is more of a hinderance on a daily basis.
I am not the type of person to trust a lot of companies or products that promise to deliver incredible results. I am mainly talking about weight loss results, because I was overweight for the majority of my life. Notice I said was, as in past tense, because reading Medifast diet reviews changed how I looked at some of the companies that do have products that truly work. I knew that I needed to eat less food if I wanted to lose weight, but nothing I was doing seemed to work for me.
I was either left feeling really hungry or I felt really sick because I was just not getting the right nutrition in some of the diets I had tried. I knew that I needed to do something though because I was consistently gaining a few pounds every year. Continue reading » I Was Never Hungry with Medifast
I am intrigued by the New Futura Condo construction that is about to arrive on the scene in Singapore. As someone who has bounced from one place to another in the five years I have lived here, I am actually excited that I might be able to swing one of these new condos. When I first arrived in Singapore, I spent about a year living with a friend who also happened to be a work colleague. He is single so it wasn’t a problem, but I still wanted to get set up in my own place.
I have lived in a series of apartments ever since. While I love the city and its sights and sounds, I just haven’t been able to find a place I enjoy living in. It seems I get settled in somewhere and immediately run into some sort of problem that makes me want to leave. Continue reading » It Will Be Stunning when It is Finished
I knew I needed to get busy researching Toronto party bus rentals before time ran out on me. A group of us had decided just a couple of days ago to rent one if there were any available for a trip we decided to take for a wine tasting event. The funny part is that some of us didn’t even enjoy wine, but we still wanted to go just for the experience. That is why we decided that if we were going to make a big day of it, then we were going to do it in style.
It was my good friend who suggested that we look into a party bus since she had been on one not too long ago as part of a wedding she was in. She told us how great the experience was, and we all decided that it was one we wanted to have as well. Since I was the one in charge of transportation, I went to the website address that she gave me. I already knew that there were 19 of us going. Continue reading » Using a Party Bus to Go to an Event
My daughter Lisa is the apple of eye. She is my pride and joy. My wife Rose and I would do anything for her. We definitely want the best for her. We so proud of all her accomplishments in life. We knew from an early age that she was destined to do great things in life. When Lisa was younger, she was very rambunctious. She had a lot of energy and played sports. The problem was that we wanted her to be well-rounded. We needed good cello class lessons in Singapore. My wife Rose and I wanted Lisa to be a refined young lady.
Music was always has been a very important part of my life. I used to play the cello in my high school orchestra. I was fascinated by the sound of the music. Playing a musical instrument taught me discipline and self-esteem. I also played the cello in my college orchestra. That was where I met my wife Rose. She played the piano. She was very good at it. Continue reading » The Cello and a Girl Named Lisa
As soon as my husband told me to look at the different Treasure at Tampines condo floor plans, I knew that we were going to finally make our move. We had been discussing it for years, but it had just not felt like the right time for either of us. He had heard about this new development though, and he really liked everything he had seen with it. He wanted me to look at the floor plans though because if I did not see something that I liked, then we would just need to keep looking at different developments as we found out about them.
We have ten year old twins, and they have always shared a room. When I told them I was going to look at floor plans, I asked if I should look at two bedroom units or three. Continue reading » We Want to Move into Our New Condo
My friends and I were hungry for some food one day, and wanted to have something besides the usual pizza that we would order on a Friday night. We were in the mood for a little Italian, so we looked for a San Diego Italian restaurant that we would be able to visit. None of us had really been to an Italian restaurant, so we were kind out just looking for one in the dark. We found one that was particularly popular in the area, and hopped in the car so we could get some food.
After being seated in the restaurant, my friends and I looked at the menu and picked out some entrees. Continue reading » Trying out a New Restaurant
I have been thinking about the future a lot lately and wondering how I can achieve my goals, which is a very complicated thing. Of course like most anyone I would like to earn a really good living and not have to work like a dog to do it. Obviously I do not want to be a ditch digger, because those guys are severely underpaid and you do not have to try it long to figure that out. I have been thinking that I might like to own my own web design company for instance, or something similar to that in the broad outlines. You sit on your butt in a nice air conditioned room and you get paid a good deal of money for the work. When I started thinking about this it was really a lot about the concept of working for myself and not having to listen to a bunch of people telling me what I should do, so I was thinking that I could do this by myself in my bedroom or den or such.
However then I began to realize that there is a lot more to any job than just doing the actual work. Obviously a web design shop designs web pages and that is what they get paid to do. However in any enterprise there is going to be lots of other stuff that needs to get done and no one is going to be able to effectively do the primary job and all of the secondary stuff with no help. The big thing is finding the customers and dealing with them. You would definitely need one or more persons to handle that part of the deal. Then there is the usual overhead, administrative work and things like paying your taxes so the government does not lock you up.
