Near closing time at an office building where I work, some people on one of the floors became sick. They ran to the bathroom to vomit and no one knew what was going on. Rather than letting the janitor handle the cleanup for the workers made, they called in Charlotte Biohazard Services to take care of it. The boss thought something more sinister might have caused the workers to become sick than a simple bug, and felt that someone who is trained to deal with hazardous material would be better suited to get rid of the vomit. I was scared that some kind of viral outbreak was spreading through the building.
Until the cause of the sickness in the workers could be determined, the boss told everyone not to enter the building. I treated it as a vacation and took some time to do some leisure activities that I had been putting off because I was so busy with work. Days later, a lab report determined that the cause of the sickness was a rare super virus that the workers had contracted. I remember a couple of the workers had gone overseas for a vacation, but no one was sure if that was the cause of contraction.
Luckily the virus isn’t deadly, except for in people who have particularly weak immune systems, such as the elderly and young babies. There isn’t any real cure for the virus. The infected person simply has to let the virus run its course through the body and make sure they have plenty of fluids to drink. I haven’t been sick to the point of vomiting in many years, and I wanted to make sure that my life stayed that way. I disinfected everything that I brought home from work and wiped down the interior of my car.
The kids started to get into recycling. They were asking the neighbors to save aluminum cans for them. Every week they would make their rounds with a toy wagon I added sides to in order to pick up cans. Sometimes they would have to make two trips. I converted a garden cart into a bigger wagon they could haul around. We do not have a recycling program through our refuse hauler in our town. The kids checked the scrap metal price per pound for aluminum cans after they crushed and saved about 1,800 pounds of them. They got to that weight rather quickly with all of the cans they collected.
Their goal was to be able to buy new bicycles and a gaming console they would earn by making their own money. We agreed to buy them games and accessories if they could pull it off. Well, their efforts yielded a lot of cans in a short period of time. Read more
When my roommate told me that her boyfriend wanted to move in with us, I knew that it was time for me to find my own apartment. Even though I like the guy, I was just not prepared to share my apartment with a man. I value my privacy too much, which is why I started looking at one bedroom North Austin apartments. It did not take me long to find the one that I wanted to move into. There was a studio apartment that was good for me, but I really liked the one bedroom unit even more.
I looked at the floor plans for all the different units there, and the one bedroom one just really called out to me. It is set up perfectly for me, and I knew that I would not have problems living there. When I open my front door, there is a coat closet right there. I never had that at the last apartment, and I always had to take my coat to my own room. Read more
It was just a normal day for me. I was going around running errands for my boss and it was as usual pretty tough to get around the city. There are just a whole lot of people really crowded city. As usual this involved going up and down in a lot of elevators and I ended up getting stuck in one, in between the thirtieth and thirty first floors of a building own by one of the big American banks. There were a few people inside, one was a very attractive company secretary for Singapore and there was this rather large gentleman who was sweating as though there was something wrong with him. Then there was a mother with a couple of young children. Read more
Once you develop extra fat cells, they really do not go away. In my youth I ate too much and did too little. Genetically I resembled my grandmother who still carries a small amount of excess weight. She has struggled with it her entire life. Her struggle is because she did not want the extra fat. After I made a commitment to eat right and maintain adequate exercise, I lost all of my excess weight. However, I had areas of excess fat that kept me from looking trim, so I had body contouring in Singapore done.
The process removes the fat cells. It is a way to make them gone. That is putting it simply, but it is very descriptive. The fat cells will stay if you do nothing. They just shrink. The little bit of fat that was interfering with the look I wanted for my abdomen was removed. I picked a specialist in body contouring in Singapore in order to not have any visible signs of scarring from the procedure. Read more
We’ve been living in the same place forever. The scenery honestly gets bland and kind of annoying after awhile. I need change in my life, and seeing the same old thing every day tends to grind on my nerves. Someone, don’t ask me who, because I honestly can’t remember, made a joke one day about up and moving the house like a bunch of singapore house movers. Well, that isn’t a bad idea.
It took some serious work to get my husband to agree to it. He figured it would be far too much work and cost far too much money. He’s probably right, but in the long run I just knew that I would be happier, at least until I got bored with our new scenery. In my defense, it took me nearly fifteen years before I got sick of the last scenery, so we won’t be doing this again for quite some time.
It really required a lot of muscle, and equipment to get our house dug out of the ground. Luckily our house doesn’t have a basement or anything, because that would have made this impossible to do. We had to clear away all the shrubbery and nonsense surrounding our house. We had to get down past the base of the house to get rope around the whole bottom of the house in order to lift it with a crane.
Lucky for us our house is small, since we have no kids, we don’t need much. We moved it back into the woods, away from everyone so that we could have our own little haven. It’s fantastic, I honestly wish I had thought of doing this sooner. Hubby on the other hand, seems to be having issues adjusting due to his allergies. I’m sure that once he gives in and takes his allergy medication he will be doing a lot better.
We finally got our office moved into a new building. We have expanded four times since I started this business with my wife a few years ago. In the beginning, it was just her and I doing everything. Then we had to start hiring employees to grow. We still show up for work every day, and we have a fine staff that really supports our business dream. We just signed a contract with a commercial cleaning services company too. They will be cleaning our offices every night after we close. We used to make time to do it ourselves. Read more
A couple of weeks ago I ran into a blog owned by a man named Ronald Chagoury who is involved in the development of a supposedly green city that is being built in Nigeria of all places. I think it is really promising that there are actually such projects out there, and I wonder who is funding the project. It got me to thinking though, when I was reading the blog, that it might be possible to figure out some sort of incentive for funding the development of more green cities in developing countries.
After all, countries that are currently developing are going to usually be in need of new cities. Well, if not new cities, then their current cities will be subject to expansion. Of course, you can just as easily accommodate population growth by building new cities, as you can by expanding ones that already exist. Read more
It is a chore to find the best people to fill the top positions in a company. Myself and two friends from college got going with a startup when we convinced one partner’s dad and quite a few Internet investors to front us some money to get going. We had a great idea, but we were not business people to the degree we needed to be. Like many entrepreneurs, we were learning as we went. What I learned was that I know our product, but that I needed the help of executive management recruiters to fill key positions in our company.
I knew the tech behind our product. I could tell you how any of the materials used in our product would perform under any condition. I could tell you how a slight chemical change in a polymer could make it more durable in the heat or less brittle in Arctic conditions. What I did not know was how to manage all that money that was given to us to start our business. Being the technical arm of the business, I wanted it all to go into product development. Read more
My wife Jenny and I are the happiest newlyweds on the face of the Earth. We just got married two weeks ago in a lavish ceremony. We were surrounded by all of our friends and family. It was a joyous occasion. We went to Hawaii for our honeymoon. It was fabulous. Today, we are preparing to move into I first place together as a married couple. We searched for 1 bedroom apartments in Hattiesburg MS. We found the perfect apartment. I cannot wait to move in with my beautiful wife.
Jenny and I met while we were in college. We were both film majors. We fell in love with her instantly. I knew that I wanted to make this woman to be my wife. Read more
My wife and I have been married for nearly ten years now, we got married right after we graduated from McGill in 2006. Of course I have to start thinking about planning a night out to celebrate. Of course Toronto is a big town and there are all sorts of things to do and places to go. The big thing is to figure out what you can afford to spend. For example hiring a toronto limo would be ideal, but not at any price. You definitely do not need to spring for one of those really enormous stretch limos, that is just totally excessive. They make those things big enough to carry a hockey team, but there is just the two of us. We could do just fine with a normal car, which a limo service would call a town car. It is still going to be pretty expensive, but they are the least expensive type of limo. Mostly you are talking about nothing more than a normal luxury car, but the driver is the big thing you get.

When I found out my husband was cheating on me, I didn’t get angry. I actually felt relieved to finally know, because I had suspected something for a while. He apologized, but I told him to talk with my lawyer. I wanted no part of a cheating man, including the house that he had lived in before we were married. I packed my bags and moved in with a friend for a few days. She lives at the Park at Boulder Creek apartments, and she offered to let me stay with her as long as I needed to, but I didn’t want to impose.
I really appreciated her offer, but I knew that I had to get back on my own two feet. I did like her apartment a lot though, and I was happy when I found out that there were some openings. Read more
With college finally behind me I am now free to focus on the rest of my life! It’s been a long 18 years – 18 years of nothing but academics, schedules, tests and exams. We spend the vast majority of our early lives focusing on educating ourselves leaving little room for much of anything else in the process. For those of us who pursue a degree beyond even our bachelors, it means almost no time for the likes of a relationship. I’ve taken the first step toward true independent by finding apartments for rent in Dallas TX – a city that I have longed to make my home, at least for a time.
I have no doubt that I am going to do a lot of moving over the next five or so years. Read more
