We Needed Our Interior Walls Painted

When my husband and I decided to buy a house in a neighboring community, we thought it would take a long time to find exactly what we wanted. We were wrong though, because we fell in love with a three bedroom house that is situated on an acre of land. We found it the first week we started looking, and we were able to look inside too. It was perfect, well almost! The walls were a hideous green color, but I knew that we would be able to hire a painter in Morris County NJ to get them looking nice again.

We made an offer on the house because the walls were the only negative point. Since they were an easy fix, we were hoping to close on the house soon so we could get started with the few repairs and renovations that we wanted done. Continue reading

Looking at a Place in Bergen County

I heard about this place from a friend of mine. Like me he is a painter in Bergen county NJ, we used to work in the same place and he was telling me that he was doing this job and he found this house near Lodi High School. That is important because next year Trish is going to get a job there, she is going to to work in the high school administration office. This house would be perfect for her because it is not far at all from the school. You could very nearly walk to the school in about ten minutes. Continue reading

Started Getting Read for the Holidays

just created these birthday invitations and party favor tags ...I was a bit surprised when I went to the mail box today and found a couple of Christmas party invitations in there. Of course one of them was for two weekends before Christmas, in the middle of December. Still that is a couple of months off in the future. You can not believe how much some people look forward to the Holidays. Obviously a lot of people who are in business have to think about Christmas all the year round. A lot of the people in retail are dependent on the money that they make in this part of the year. Continue reading

Our Old Cable TV Went out Regularly So We Switched to DirecTV

... This Logo | 480 Views | Bookmark this Logo! | Tags: directv , logoThere is a telephone pole on the corner just down the street. It is close to the edge of the road. Big trucks turn there and hit that pole on a regular basis. The town says they have a plan to have it moved in about a year. The power lines on it do not serve our house. However, the cable TV line does. About every month or so like clockwork a truck will push that pole out of position or snap it off. The last time we lost TV service I went to http://satellite-direct-tv.com/directv-select-package.html to switch to DirecTV.

My wife and I were working and set a show to record on our cable DVR. While at work someone whacked the pole. The show did not record. Continue reading

Found Me a Nice Place on the Lake

A couple of months ago I moved to Raleigh and started living temporarily in an apartment. I was looking for a place to live and I finally found something rather unexpected. It is a little thing that is kind of like a cottage and it would be unsuitable if it was not for the fact that I am working rather near by. That is because it is on a big reservoir about half an hour North of the City. The place is pretty nice, but quite small. It has wireless internet and satellite TV hooked up and it is included in the price. Of course this is like a guest house really. Continue reading

I Needed to Get Another Degree

When my boss asked me if I was interested in going back to school, I was not sure where the conversation was going. I had a Bachelor’s degree in business, and I knew that I didn’t need to have another major to do what I was already doing. That is when he told me about a program with a part time degree in singapore. He told me that one of the executives was going to be retiring within two years, and he wanted to mold me to be his replacement.

The board of directors would need to okay any promotion of that magnitude though, which is why he wanted me to go for my MBA. Continue reading

Energy Prices for Pasadena, Texas

I am in the process of moving into my first apartment, and I am kind of nervous about everything. It will be strange not living at home. However, my parents are rather insistent that I move out of their house, because they feel that I have lived there for too many years, and that I am becoming too dependent upon them. I do not know if that is the case, but I want to look up prices for reliant energy in pasadena, because I am going to be sub-leasing an apartment from a friend of mine, and I need to get the electricity switched over from their name, and put into my name. They want me to do that pretty soon, so that their name is not still on the bill, after the next billing cycle starts. As such, I only have a few days to get this matter taken care of.

My main issue, though, is that I am not going to be willing to stay with Reliant Energy, if I find a place that is offering their electricity at a cheaper rate. I do not know if it will be possible to find a cheaper rate, but I am sure going to look to see if there is. As I have already implied, the electricity is currently through Reliant Energy. I should call my parents, and ask them what electricity company they use. I know that they used to use this one company, but I am fairly sure that they switched to another provider within the last year. I can’t think of the name of the new company, and I am not sure that I ever knew it in the first place. I should probably just go ahead and give them a call, and then get back to looking up rates online.

Cheap Energy Rates in Tell, Texas

Texas Cheap Houses for SaleMy son is kind of disabled, but he wants to have his own place. It is going to be a burden, to allow him to live out of the house, but I understand his concerns, and I want to accommodate him as best as I can. He does not have an income right now, but he does get a check from the government. I have just found him an apartment that is relatively cheap, and now I am looking for texas energy companies in tell that have fairly low rates on their electricity.

The two of us were getting the property cleaned up after the storm and then we suddenly realized that we needed to get well away from this one place in the yard. She just happened to look up because a hawk cried out or something and that was when she realized that there was the entire top of a tree hung up in another tree. Of course I was confused and we spent a good bit of time trying to figure out where it had came from. Apparently it had snapped off and the rest of the tree was still standing. Continue reading

OUT & WITHIN, exploration of life,art exhibition

  1. OUT & WITHIN, exploration of life,art exhibition
    Event on 2013-12-30 11:00:00
    ‘out & within’
    e x p l o r a t i o n o f l i f e

    About the exhibition:
    Indulging in creativity is not only a passion for some artists but also is a way of discovering about human life and express through their creations. Promising artist Aniket Khupse & senior painter Satish Pimple go on a journey to explore and construe what human life is all about. Despite the age difference, they both seem to be sharing something in common – the zest to explore human life – and this exhibition is rendition of their discoveries from ‘out’ & ‘within’ life experiences.
    What is truly important and amazing is that they both present their works dealing with two fundamental aspects of life – one is metaphysical or realistic part and other is related to mind. Both are equally important attributes of human life. Whilst one facet is about dealing with outer, materialistic world, tackling various situations and moving ahead in life, other is about listening to your inner core, self-realization and contemplation.
    Listening to your mind dictates you to choose right path in your life and vise-a-versa, human mind grows and matures building upon real life experiences. Both aspects are correlated to each other and are incomplete without another.
    On achieving synergy between the two, a complete human being is created.
    Aniket Khupse:

    Aniket Khupse’s visuals can be read as intellectual and highly expressive anecdotes of human life.
    In his paintings, he treats canvas as a visual narrative where characters meet, tackle with various situations in life, react, learn from experiences, mature, grow and sail ahead in the journey of life.
    The proficient use of water colour in layers brings fluidity & depth to his compositions, constantly shuffling us between past & present. Khupse metaphorically uses various symbols to depict very sensitive qualities of human life, quite often as a subtle back-drop on his canvas.
    Apart from being a great visual treat of balanced compositions, colour harmony & textural quality, the personification created in his works facilitates very close dialogue to the viewers between them and his creations.

    Satish Pimple:

    Satish Pimple has been painting for nearly 40 years and his vast experience is evident in his ability to handle the canvas in an immensely captivating way.
    He manages to dive deep inside unfathomable inner mind where he reads imprints of emotions, memories, reactions and self-realization. His paintings are hence primarily abstract & sometimes semi abstract which portray a powerful & intense drama of on canvas. The abstract forms interact with each other in a harmony in his paintings. His bold patches & blobs of colours interweave and blur into each other to a varying degree and create a great sense of depth.
    He prolifically handles oil & acrylic making almost tangible textural patterns. One experiences a great amount of motion & force in his compositions taking you on this visual journey and at one point they become object of pure perceptual experience.

The Meal Plan Definitely Worked for Me

weight loss, fat loss, fitness, looking good,I have been overweight for most of my life, but I had never really felt fat. I was pretty active, and my doctor was happy with my lab work results every year. When I had my tests done last year though, it came back that I was borderline diabetic, and my doctor told me that I had to make changes in my life. He wanted me to go on a 1200 calorie a day meal plan, and I knew that would be hard on me because I love to eat. He gave me some bistro md coupon codes and told me to look online to see if it was something I’d be willing to try.

I had never heard of Bistro MD, but I knew my doctor would not recommend anything that he personally did not believe in himself. I went home and looked online so I could get information on it, and I was really surprised by what I saw. Continue reading

Top rated 7 Procedures – Natural Remedies For Your Daily Arthritis Pain

Use tools designed to help arthritis sufferers when doing difficult activities. If you are standing for long periods or handling large objects, you need to protect yourself from the extra strain on your joints that could make your condition worse. More joint damage ultimately means pain that is much more severe; the best thing to do is get relief from excessive strenuous activity and pressure before reaching that point.

Many people do not visit a physician after experiencing a minor sprain or pulled muscle. However, following through on these types of injuries may prevent later arthritis problems caused by the formation of scar tissue. Let your doctor perform the necessary procedures to prevent you from possibly getting scar tissue.

It’s important to get equipment to help you do what you need to do. If you have the right tools, even a person with arthritis can perform most tasks. Tools made specifically for people with physical disorders can allow a person get through his or her daily life with much less assistance from other people. Add these helpful pieces of equipment to your wish list, and enjoy the freedom of independence. Arthritis often takes you on a roller coaster of stop and go emotions. To keep your arthritis from flaring up, you will need to rest more while enjoying everyday tasks. Always get enough rest, but never too much rest. Resting up helps to give your body a break from the stress while also soothing the pain. Try and find the perfect balance of rest and activity, as too much rest can make your joints stiffen. Don’t simply accept the fact that you have arthritis, and let it diminish your quality of life. Instead, educate yourself about your condition, so you can learn how to manage it and to minimize the impact it has on your life. The guidelines from this article are the perfect launching pad for your efforts to learn about arthritis. Remember this information as you explore all available treatment options and recommendations.

A warm salt bath for relaxation and a cold pack to numb localized pain might make it easier for you to fall asleep at night. This can relax your muscles and alleviate the arthritis pain. This, in turn, allows you to fall asleep and remain asleep for a longer time. Let your doctor check for deficiencies. If you aren’t getting enough nutrients like vitamin B-12 or iron, you can see a greater arthritic reaction. It is vital to check your levels often so that you can maximize your comfort and mood as the day wears on.

Applying these tips is a great way to start developing a new lifestyle that corresponds to your condition. It will provide a good place to start in learning about arthritis and the treatments that are available for this condition.

Women who have arthritis should avoid wearing shoes with heels in favor of supportive running shoes. Shoes that put unneeded stress on your feet are going to only further your joint pain. All that potentially painful stress will disappear if you switch over to comfy running shoes (or orthopedic dress shoes on more formal occasions).

Under your doctor’s direction, adjust your diet to include anti-inflammatory foods. This will help reduce joint inflammation and relieve arthritis pain. In some studied cases, a diet designed to reduce arthritis pain has proven effective enough to lessen the need for pain medication or even eliminate it entirely. Use a diary to track your pain as it progresses or gets better. Keep note of the pain you feel, how, when, severity and the treatment you use. When meeting with your health care provider, take along this journal and remember that it should also reflect other medications and whether they were ingested concurrently. All these things are important for your doctor to know, so that they may give you the best advice.

It might seem hard sometimes, but if you have arthritis, it is vital that you exercise often. Your joints fatigue if they are not exercised with regularity, and over time, this just lets your arthritis get worse. It is also a good idea to do flexibility exercises when you suffer from arthritis since this will help the range of motion of your joints.

Having snacks throughout the day is a wonderful way to get all of the nutrients that your body will need to stay active, even during the times when arthritis might be holding you back. Snacks such as seeds, nuts or protein bars are great choices for a healthy snack. These snacks can supply that boost to help you keep going, without causing a sugar crash or sodium overload.

    My own Viewpoint – A Compilation Of Tips On How To Stay Beautiful

    Do not shampoo your hair every day. Daily washing strips the oil from your hair, which can dry it out or cause oil production to go into overdrive. Although, if you do not wash your hair often enough it can be really greasy, which is why it is generally recommended that it should be washed every two days. These tips should help you improve your current beauty regime with new products or new techniques. The idea of these hints is not to completely change the way that you are, but more to make the most of the natural beauty that you already have within you. Incorporate exercise into your daily life. Daily exercise will keep you feeling young and healthy. You need to keep it in your figurative beauty bag. Every day, find fifteen or twenty minutes to do something active. Cleaning the house counts as physical activity so make an effort to keep your house clean and your body will thank you. If you want beautiful skin, consume more natural fruit juices. Fruits and vegetables have health benefits that extend to your skin’s appearance. Juices made from fresh fruit are a healthy, fresh way to incorporate fruit into your diet. You can replace your usual sweet drinks with juice, and you will be glowing in no time. There is one incredibly simple tip that when not followed greatly decreases the appearance of both men and women. Groom your eyebrows, and make sure you can tell where one eyebrow ends and the next one begins. By simply keeping your eyebrows trimmed and well kept, you will find yourself being noticed much more by people.

    Try coconut oil on your face, as opposed to those pricey facial moisturizers. Coconut oil provides you with a soothing moisture that easily goes through your skin. In addition, it also makes you look younger because it helps to eliminate lines and wrinkles. It also helps treat skin ailments like eczema, acne and psoriasis because of its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. You want to avoid red eyes at any cost. After all, if you draw attention to your eyes with makeup but they’re irritated or inflamed, it defeats the purpose of applying the makeup in the first place. Make sure you have eye drops available away from home. They can be used to perk up your eyes if they get red and tired from starring at a computer screen for too long, are are overexposed to the sun. Minimize caffeine intake to contribute to your efforts in beauty. It can make you appear tired and feel jittery, as well as age you. Caffeinated sweet teas, sodas and coffees should be consumed sparingly, one per day at maximum. Good alternatives to many usual beverages are good-quality decaf coffee and green teas.

    Lotion will help to prevent ingrown hairs when used daily. After you are done shaving, apply lotion to your skin. Using lotion every day will help your skin not to be dry, and will prevent ingrown hairs. This will make existing ingrown hairs come out, and stop new ones from forming. If you suffer from bouts of dandruff, try adding a crushed aspirin to your usual shampoo. Aspirin has calming properties that help soothe dry scalp skin. This simple remedy can save you from the problems you have with dandruff, and save you some money on the expensive special products that are marketed. Keep a bit of your favorite moisturizer in a small container such as an empty lip gloss pot. This perfectly portable container can be stashed in your purse, car, travel bag or even your desk drawer at work. Just put some moisturizer all over your face when you think your skin looks or feels dry. We often say that beauty isn’t absolute, but merely subjective. There are many things, though, a person can do that will enhance their appearance. Read this helpful article to find out how you can increase your beauty. You can prevent heat-related styling damage by allowing your hair to air dry whenever possible. The combined heat from the hair dryer, curling iron, and straightening iron can take a major toll on the hair and scalp. If you must use a hair dryer, keep it on the absolute lowest setting. By looking after your hair in this way, it will reward you with soft and silky locks for the years ahead. A great way to switch up your beauty routine and add a little spark to your makeup is to use shimmer eye shadow. The shininess will help to give your eyes the appearance of being larger and brighter. The shade of shadow should be close to your skin tone. Have fun exploring the many different ways of applying a vast multitude of shades. If you want to have good skin, naturally, drink a lot of water. Water is nature’s cleanser, and it’s power to flush the body of harmful pollutants can result in more radiant and attractive skin.

    If your eyes appear red, you will not get the full effect from eye makeup. Keep a small bottle of eye drops or saline solution in your handbag. Eye drops not only heal red eyes, but help you keep your eyes open if you’ve been staring at a computer screen all day or walking on a sunny beach.

      Mums the word

      Its mothers day tomorrow, its very important for me to show my mum what she means, I do it every day but its an excuse to give something she can keep forever. This year I want to make it really special as it will be my last one with her before I move to Egypt.

      I have spent weeks making arrangements, I want everything to be perfect but finding everything is very difficult. I have found most of the things but I still havent bought her gift and Im running out of time. I decided to buy a car but finding the right in such short notice will be very hard.

      When I went shopping yesterday I noticed a car dealer that had used car sales in Cumbria, I didnt have time to look at any cars, so I will go today after lunch and hopefully find the perfect car for my mum. For me to buy her a car is a very big risk as my mum is very hard to please, so that is one of the reasons why my dad hasnt bought her a car yet.

      Every time we take her to choose the car herself, she comes back home empty handed, I have never seen such a picky person in my entire life. So thats when I decided to buy her a car for mothers day, as I know if we just buy it and give it to her then she will end up loving it.

      Douglas E. Noll Honored as Encore.org 2014 Purpose Prize Fellow: Outstanding Social Innovators Working to Change the World

      Encore.org honors the achievements of 38 Purpose Prize fellows, social innovators over 60 years of age who are dedicated to finding solutions to challenging social problems, including Douglas Noll, a co-founder with his colleague Laurel Kaufer, of Prison of Peace.

      San Francisco, Ca (PRWEB) October 24, 2014

      On October 28, in Tempe, Arizona, Encore.org will honor the achievements of 38 Purpose Prize fellows, social innovators over 60 years of age who are dedicated to finding solutions to challenging social problems, including Douglas Noll, a co-founder with his colleague Laurel Kaufer, of Prison of Peace. “I never imagined that in my mid-sixties I would be finding ways to serve others in a deep and meaningful way. Encore.org honors not just my work, but the dedicated work of the peacemakers and mediators we have trained and mentored in California prisons. These inmates have moved from serving life sentences to living lives of service.”

      “Douglas E. Noll and the 2014 Purpose Prize fellows have applied their abundant talents to address a broad range of issues, including poverty, racism, community health, education, veterans issues and the environment, said Eunice Lin Nichols, director of The Purpose Prize. “Despite their differences, they are united in the belief that the work they are doing now ranks among their most significant accomplishments, impacting thousands of people.”

      Now in its ninth year, The Purpose Prize is the nations pre-eminent large-scale investment in people over the age of 60 who are combining their life skills and talents for the social good. The Purpose prize is a program of Encore.org (formerly Civic Ventures), a nonprofit organization that is building a movement to tap the skills and experience of those in midlife and beyond to improve communities and the world.

      The 2014 Purpose Prize fellows represent inspiring examples of social innovation with growing potential for impact. As Purpose Prize fellows, they gain valuable access to a dynamic learning community of like-minded encore leaders and innovators.

      Encore.org is proud to recognize the achievements of Douglas Noll and the 2014 Purpose Prize fellows cohort. They stand as powerful examples for the millions of Americans who believe that using their life experience to make a difference big or small, across communities, continents and generations is a vital responsibility, Nichols said.

      A brief summary of Doug Nolls Prison of Peace project follows.

      Founded in 2009, Prison of Peace trains inmates serving life sentences in California prisons to be peacemakers, mediators, mentors and trainers. Through an intensive learning process, inmates in both mens and womens prisons learn how to de-escalate conflicts quickly, listen empathically, and help fellow inmates resolve the myriad arguments, conflicts, and disputes that arise in the prison environment.

      The goals of the project are:

      To teach personal emotional intelligence skills to inmates
      To teach essential personal problem-solving skills to inmates
      To introduce and teach the restorative process of peace circles
      To introduce and teach the principles of moral engagement
      To teach basic mediation skills as third party neutrals
      To embed peacemaking, defined as collaborative, respectful problem-solving processes to resolve interpersonal and group conflicts, within the prison.
      To create capacity to continue the expansion of training and knowledge within the prison by training inmates to be instructors and trainers.
      To create a sustainable program of peace-building within the prison
      To demonstrate the power of non-coercive, non-violent methods of conflict resolution to correctional officers and prison administrators
      To demonstrate the power of human redemption, transformation, and growth in all humans, regardless of crimes committed or circumstances of life

      Cheapquotesautoinsurance.com (http://cheapquotesautoinsurance.com/) announces a new blog post, Can Car Types Determine Auto Insurance Premiums?


      (PRWEB) October 24, 2014

      Cheapquotesautoinsurance.com has released a new blog post explaining how car types determine vehicle insurance quotes.

      Auto insurance rates can be greatly influenced by the type of car a client has. When buying a car, clients should think about how their purchase could affect auto insurance rates.

      A vehicle insurance quote can provide valuable information about the price someone has to pay for a policy. The price will be influenced by the age and condition of a car. Expensive, fast cars cost more to insure than safe family vehicles.

      A car that was recalled or a lemon car is also more difficult to insure. Clients who drive often and for long distances should expect to pay more for insurance.

        North Mankato, MN (PRWEB) October 16, 2014

        The spookiest of holidays will fall on a Friday in 2014, which means three nights of Halloween adventures await.

        Pop culture trends and current events play into the most popular costumes this Halloween. The Ice Bucket Challenge took the nations social media by storm in August and will certainly make a splash at Halloween parties.

        Other trending Halloween costumes for 2014 include a return to scary from classic tales of fiction. Movies like Dracula Untold, I, Frankenstein, and the 40th Anniversary of Texas Chainsaw Massacre provide inspiration for villains to rise from the tombs of literary and cinema history. Popular shows and scary tales are taking center stage in the form of Hannibal and American Horror Story, among others. The return to scary theme also translates into home Halloween dcor as indoor and outdoor haunted house scenes have become all the rage.

        Speaking of the cinema, several blockbuster films made a major impact in the box office this year and will certainly inspire a costume or two. There is no arguing that Disneys Frozen captured the hearts and minds of adults and children alike, so expect to see plenty of Elsa, Anna, and Olaf the Snowman. Director Michael Bays Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot arrived with a nostalgic cowabunga! and will be a popular costume choice for fans of any age.

        Adults will have plenty of options to choose from in sexy mashup costumes, and 2014 is the year to get weird with childhood memories. Gender benders, which reverse the roles of male and female, are on the rise. You will recall that the hit couples costume of 2013 was men dressing as Miley Cyrus with women dressing as Robin Thicke from the duos scandalous MTV Video Music Awards performance. Sexy Rocket Raccoon from Guardians of the Galaxy, Sexy Ronald McDonald, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will all have a gender bender spotlight in 2014.

        Truly convincing Game of Thrones and Destiny costumes are hard to find, which makes them targets for the cosplaying community. When selecting costumes for a group, take a tip from comic conventions and combine any widely celebrated group with Playboy bunnies. Star Trek bunnies, Avenger bunnies, and even fairytale princess bunnies were big on the comic con scene in 2014.

        This years Halloween season also brings with it a heavy emphasis on intricate makeup. As tutorials on YouTube and Pinterest continue to grow in popularity, both men and women are gaining confidence in attempting detailed and difficult makeup effects. Hot makeup trends such as Day of the Dead sugar skulls and zombie wounds will be on full display this Halloween. Be on the lookout for bedazzled makeup effects with the addition of acrylic jewels and flesh prosthetics that add authenticity to any costume.

        Spooky-Sexy mashups will run rampant with costumes like creepy voodoo dolls, zombie flappers, and Day of the Dead skeletons hitting the streets. Where sexy and spooky collide, a costume becomes a unique showstopper. These costume mashups capture the creepiness of scary concepts without undermining the sexiness factor.

        One can always start a conversation with a costume that is sure to make friends question sanity, integrity, or both. The latex horse mask continues to be a popular choice for Halloween, and it was recently revitalized with the premiere of Netflix original series, BoJack Horseman. Sharknado, which first gained notoriety as a 2013 satirical made-for-TV movie, has suddenly become relevant again with reports of beach strewn sharks feeding along the coastline of North Carolina.

        Bringing up the rear, as it were, is a great reason to dub 2014 the year of the butt. Topping off this well-rounded list are the famous and newsworthy posteriors of Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea, Jennifer Lopez, and Beyonc. Additionally, Meghan Trainors debut single, All About That Bass, remains in the No. 1 spot after 13 weeks on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
