Now I Can Play Without Breaking the Bank

I thought about using a Forge of Empires cheat about three months before I actually started doing serious research into finding a cheat that would work for me. I don’t like cutting corners in any game, but really I was spending so much money on this game that I either had to get a second job or cheat! Seriously though, I was putting out a lot more money than I was comfortable spending. As most of us dedicated players know, it’s so easy to lose track of your expenditures with these games. I know I lost track.

When I noticed how much I had spent on diamonds and other trinkets necessary to advance quickly, I knew I either needed to quit playing entirely or find a cheat. I decided on the latter because I really enjoy the game. Even if I could jump forward a lot, I knew I was still going to keep playing because I like the graphics and the layout. These types of games go on forever anyway so it’s not like getting ahead in a slightly shady way will change much in the long run. Still, I needed to find the right cheat. I didn’t want to get scammed.

And I found it! Lots of people have used this cheat to great effect, so I figured I would get on that bandwagon and see what would happen. I was able to get a lot of diamonds, and I mean a lot. I figured since I was in I might as well pick up a lot of supplies and coins as well. It was as simple as putting in a just clicking a few buttons and generating the necessary stuff I needed. I didn’t even have to download anything. Now I’m playing the game and moving a lot further a lot faster!

The Demographics Are Finally Lining Up

When I purchased my first house to flip, I decided that I not only liked the idea of flipping a house but in owning it as well. Since I didn’t need but one house for myself, I ended up with nearly two dozen rental properties within a five year span. The houses were really nice, but I was not getting the demographics in there that I wanted. I wanted young Millennials since they are our future, so I knew that I was going to have to do some research. I did a search for rental housing tips, and that is how I found the Rental Housing Journal.

This is an online site that helps property management companies as well as landlords. There are a good amount of blog posts along with documents and articles that contain a lot of very useful information. I was really happy to have found this site because there was a lot of information about the younger generation. They are our future, so it made sense that we would have to adapt to their way of things. One of those things is being connected, as in the internet. Continue reading

Location, Location, Location Isn’t a Joke

We owned a piece of real estate in Denver that I thought was pretty nice. We lived there for many years and enjoyed our time in our home, but when my husband retired we decided to move to Florida and enjoy some warmer weather. Over the years, the place we lived in became somewhat less of a desirable location, apparently, so we quickly ran into some problems when we put the home on the market. It sat there with little interest for several months before we decided to take it off the market and explore our options.

We thought about just staying in Denver for a few more years, thinking that perhaps the real estate market might improve enough so that we could quickly unload our property. Continue reading

A Great Steal on an Apartment

I started looking at apartments for rent in North Las Vegas about a month ago. I didn’t need to find one until this summer, but I thought it might take me a while to find the one that I wanted to call home. There are so many different apartment complexes in and around Las Vegas, and I just figured that it was going to take looking at quite a few of them in order for me to make a decision on which one I wanted to rent. Thankfully, it did not take me nearly as long as I thought it would.

I knew that I was going to conduct the majority of my search online. I started at the center of downtown and worked my way out. I did it this way because I work pretty much smack dab in the middle of the city, and I did not want to have a long commute time. I did that once with a job before, and it was miserable for me. As a result, I have promised myself that I will never work more than 15 minutes from my job if at all possible. Continue reading

Our Retail Store Parking Lot Needed Repaved in the Worst Way

Sometimes I wait too long to get things done. I like to make sure there is money in the bank for those rainy days that happen when you own retail real estate. A broken AC unit could cost us 10 grand and happen at any moment. I like to wait to do major renovations as keeping a positive cash flow is important. However, when something needs done, I get the best people to do the best job possible. It lasts longer when you do that. I hired a company that does paving in Nassau County NY to resurface the parking lot at a small retail complex we own. I stopped by to inspect the property and make notes, and I stepped into a big puddle when I got out of my vehicle. I had let this parking lot go too long before repairing it. Continue reading

Oil Changes, Racing Toddlers and Lower Back Injuries All in One Day!

I bought a used car to save money. We have been cutting our budget and working overtime saving for a down payment on a house. I took the car in for an oil change and learned that there are no lube points on newer cars, so no need for grease. Plus, the oil plug and the filter were easy to reach even without the car on a lift. So, the next time I decided to change the oil to save money. And this is my story of why I needed to see a Corte Madera chiropractor after attempting to do my own oil change on my new car.

I went to the auto department at Sam Walton’s big old store. I like my name for the place better than what everyone else calls it. They have the cheapest oil. The stuff is all the same when you buy it buy its rating. This car used the semi-synthetic type, and it was a few bucks cheaper to buy it buy the case. I picked up the box and put it in the cart. Well, that was the plan anyway. When I turned to put the box in the cart, a little kid came racing by between me and my cart. I was trying not to hit him with the box or step on him. I did a little dance as the kid bumped me and rushed passed me, and I got a funny feeling in my lower back.

It kind of felt like I had pulled a muscle. Continue reading

A Breast Cream That Truly Works

I wanted to find the best breast enhancement cream, which meant I had to go online and find out what really has worked for other people. I knew that there were creams out there that worked, but I also knew that there were a lot that were just out there to take a person’s money too. I did not want to go to the website for any of the brands themselves, because I just was not sure I would get unbiased information that way. What I did instead was seek out reviews by people who have actually used these products.

I figured that would be the fastest way to either rule a breast enhancement product out or put it on my short list to try. Continue reading

From Boat Living to Living in Nice Apartments in Newport News

We have a 45 foot trawler that my father owned. He bought it new. It is one that has been built for living. It has a large galley and saloon, and the berths are also roomy. Even the head looks and feels residential. My wife and I have lived on the boat for months at a time. We travel and work as we go. We would find ourselves pulling into Newport News when returning from many of our adventures and then flying to our home up north. We decided to find some nice and affordable apartments in Newport News to use as a home base.

We were not looking for one of those apartments that charge a fortune for a lease. Continue reading

Helping My Brother with Pay Stubs

My brother asked me if I would be able to help him with some accounting work. I did take accounting in high school, but that was nearly 30 years ago. I just did not feel confident enough to help him, especially when he told me that it was pay stubs that he wanted me to do for a few contractors he had working for him. I told him I could not do that, but that I would help him find a cheap way to go about it. I found a site that said to click here for more information on generating pay stubs, so that is what I did.

It took me to another site that is exactly what my brother needed. Continue reading

When You Replace Your HVAC System, Make Sure You Do It Right

We put it off for as long as possible, but the heat this summer had us calling for air conditioning installation in New York City. We checked the weather and had it done when there was a cool spell in the middle of summer. We had a lot of 90 degree plus days this year. The old AC system was struggling to keep the place even halfway comfortable. The main problem was the removal of the humidity. It felt muggy inside even when it was okay as far as the temperature goes.

Replacing the entire HVAC system was our project. We had problems with the furnace the last couple of winters. While we were ahead on our budget, we decided to invest in the infrastructure renovations now. It would be nice if the city could do that with all of its roads, subways, bridges, tunnels and sewer systems. It is an investment. Continue reading

My Favorite Tree Fell Down During Bad Weather

I’ve loved the trees in my yard for the last 30 years that I have lived in my home. I really did not think I would lose a large part of one. But getting help with tree service in Long Island is what I ended up needing badly. I know nothing about trees, and I had no idea that they really need regular care. Call me naive, but I am a busy person and I have never learned anything about trees. I simply had no idea. But after getting some help, I understand what needs to happen for their health from now on.

One of the trees out in front of my house was about 50 feet tall. It is one of two trees that are so tall that they help to shade my house enough to keep my utility bills down. But after a very mild rain storm one night, I hard an odd cracking noise outside. Continue reading

Almost Finished Moving into My New Place

We found a new place and we have just gotten moved in. It is not all that far from where I work and it is really convenient for Jane. She likes the fact that her Mom is not more than a few blocks away. So she can help out with the baby any time that we need her to do it. Of course the mother in law is thrilled about this, she loves to help out with her grand baby. The house needs a few things. I already talked to a tree service in Brooklyn NY. There is a huge tree right above the left side of the house and it has a large dead limb right above the side porch. There is not much choice except to get rid of it and I am certainly not going to try to do it myself. Continue reading

Our Daughter Can Play Outside Safely Now

When my husband told me that we were moving to New Jersey, I was incredibly excited. I have lived on the west coast all my life, and I was more than ready for a new adventure with the man I love. We flew out ahead of time and found a house to buy. I was so happy to see that there were a lot of geese around the property that we put an offer in on. But after we purchased the house and we moved there, I soon learned how important Canada geese control in NJ can be.

I really liked opening the windows up each day to see the geese flying around. I even love the sounds they make. I watched them daily as I passed by the windows and unpacked many moving boxes. At sundown, my husband would come home, and we would relax outside on our patio while watching them, too. Truly relaxing. Once we were all packed, we then had more time to do things outdoors, which came a few weeks after we had he house all set up and unpacked.

The very first day, I sat on the patio and watched our 5-year-old daughter play in the backyard. Not long after, I noticed that she had something all over her sandals. It was then that I realized that it was goose droppings! I took her inside, put a new pair of shoes on her, and we went back outside. Not long after, she stepped in goose droppings again. I surveyed the yard then and saw that it was everywhere! This meant she could not even play in her own yard.

The neighbors told us that it is something you have to deal with or get someone to come help you. We chose to get help. The place we called promised no harm to the birds, and they have gentle ways to get the birds to move to another area. It really worked, too!

A Quick Roof Repair to Prevent Future Damage

After every rainy season or period of inclement weather, I always go up on my roof to check things out. I want to make sure that everything is as it should be, and that there are no potential issues with the condition of my roof. The last time I was up there, I noticed an area of the roof that did not look normal. It looked like it had almost begun to rot away. I thought that I had better call a professional, so I looked up roof repair in queens to find someone who could help me.

I found one company that had availability the same day. The repair man went up on my roof and confirmed my initial thoughts. There was a patch of my roof that would need to be repaired so that water would not be able to do additional damage. He took out all of the bad, rotted parts of the roof, and replaced it with new wood and shingles. Continue reading

Investing Time in Finding a Quality Roofer

Whether looking to get work done on the roof of a business or a house, there are few jobs that really matter more in terms of quality and attention to detail. People may not think twice about their roof when it is getting the job done, but once there is a problem with it, it can become a major complication. One of the worst, yet least noticeable issues is the potential for small leaks. Water can enter the building and go to strange places or possibly even remain undetected. A roofing contractor in NYC can identify this though and stop the leak from continuing before mold or other problems make the entire problem even worse.

The bottom line is that roof repairs and installation can be extremely expensive, but that investment is worth it if it means the prevention of future problems. Continue reading

One Great App Leads to Unexpected Help

I downloaded this great new app that shows me movie times based on my current location. I use it all the time. Last week I went to the movies, and I had to wait a whole hour before my movie was supposed to start. It just so happened that the theater was right next to a traditional Chinese medicine clinic. I began to read the text on the window including the URL: www.tcm-r-us.com.sg. I was intrigued. I pushed my face into the glass trying to get a look inside, but I couldn’t really see anything. I decided to go inside. I walked up to the front desk and told the friendly woman inside that I wanted to learn more about Traditional Chinese Medicine, and how it could help me. Continue reading

Fantastic Divorce Lawyers in Alpharetta Area

It is kind of hard to believe that it has been that long; it is even hard to believe that it is over now. I never saw this coming, and it would make me angry, if I were not too depressed to be angry.

Take Time to Relax After Your Move

Buying a home and moving can be such a big job. Even though a person is very excited to buy their first fort lauderdale homes and they move into it, as soon as the project is complete, one of the main things that they are thinking about doing is relaxing. Deciding to buy a home, completing all of the paperwork and organizing a move can be mentally stressful. Getting the home ready and then actually moving all of the furniture and organizing it can be very physically draining. After a move, it is a good idea to take some time and just relax.

I Wanted to Move in Quickly

When I first started looking at apartments, I had no idea I was going to find what I did. I was moving from a very small town, and the apartments there were very basic. I discovered that apartments in Albuquerque are quite different. I had found http://pavilionsapartments.com while I was scouring the Internet to find an affordable apartment there. When I saw all of the amenities that went along with the apartments there, I knew for sure that they were out of my price range. I was so surprised when I saw just how low the prices were after some research.

Even though the apartments back home were small and basic, they cost an arm and a leg. The ones I viewed online were cheaper, plus they had a lot more going for them. They were situated in a very beautiful area with a lot of paths and gardens nearby. Continue reading

I Am Trying to Find a Condo

Of course I do not much care for paying rent on a place, since the money that I spend is gone for all of time, so I am trying to find a condo that I can afford which is going to fit in with my life. There seems to be a good place that was built by the New Futura Condo developers, but it seems like it is going to cost a bit more than I would like to pay for a place. Obviously it is going to be best if the place is close to where I work and the other places that I need to go. I have a girlfriend and she lives in a place of her own, one which she has no desire to share with me. In fact it is pretty clear that she is not really serious about me as a relationship and that is fine with me for a number of reasons, the big one being that I could not imagine living the rest of my life with her.

From the first moment I heard about Seaside Residences, I knew that it was where I wanted to be. First off, the location is perfect for me. I work only about a mile from where it is going to be developed, and that sure beats the commute that I have right now. It is also being designed to be extremely comfortable and wonderful for anyone living there. There are some condos that offer the typical amenities like swimming pools and fitness centers, but that is about it. That is just where things start with Seaside Residences though, as they offer so much more.

I wanted to look at the different floor plans, but they were not released yet when I looked. That did not mean I was not able to still get a lot of information on them though. Continue reading

Using a VPS for Software Testing Online in an Isolated Environment

My wife and I have spent a lot of time in self-education to learn how to develop apps for computer use. The first programming language I learned was BASIC back in the early 1980s. It may have been 1979. I remember having a small computer that had a keyboard built into it. The keyboard was not even full size. The storage media was a cassette tape in a small cassette tape player. You could have one program running at a time in RAM. Now we found ourselves looking for a cheap Windows VPS to have a sandbox OS operating online that we both can access from anywhere.

Years ago apps were called software applications. Then is was shortened to “software. Continue reading

My New Favorite Website for Discovering Music

My friends and I love dancing. Without music, there would be no dancing. So, I would say that both music and dancing our passions. The type of dancing that I do really depends on the type of music that’s playing. I’m always looking for new music that I’ve never heard before. I’m open to new genres, artists, and sounds. One of my favorite places to find new music is the Krafta website. Prior to discovering it last week, I was completely in the dark.

In the past, I found new music by browsing various websites and searching on the web. It was difficult to find things that I hadn’t heard before. I was looking for some new sounds, and I wasn’t finding anything that interested me. My friend told me about Krafta, and ever since then, I haven’t had to search anywhere else. It’s really easy to search the site and discover new music. Of course, there are lots of songs that I’ve heard before as well. I really like that I get a variety of music to choose from.

I’m Taking the Same Type of Classes My Dad Once Took

I was born in China. My mother was also born there, and when she was in her twenties, she met an American man who she married. That man is my father. When we still lived there, my dad had access to a great kung fu education because of the many classes available in a nearby city. When I was very young, I can remember sitting outside and playing with my toys while watching him practicing his moves nearby. He learned enough to become a brown belt while we were there. When I was four years old, we moved to America.

I was never lucky enough to take all the same classes that dad did before we left to come here. I was too young, or so my dad thought. But he did take the time to teach me some of the things he knew. I would clumsily follow along, but did not have much interest because I was so young. Instead, I wanted to go outside to ride my bike, play with my friends or throw a ball around with my playmates.

I Can Get You an Interview with My Resume Tips

I get people asking me to make them a resume all the time. It is not that hard. One thing I learned a long time ago is that most who are in charge of hiring have to go through a lot of resumes. They do not want to see something fancy, and their eyes naturally fall about one third of the way down the page for a few seconds first. That is the first thing they look at. I use a resume template that takes advantage of that section of the page to accentuate what you want the potential employer to see. For some it is your work history. For others it may be educational history. It depends on the job you are going for. I use a different template for each purpose.

In my opinion, they are not likely to even look at your name until they see what they want. The first thing in the weeding out process is to eliminate the resumes that are not qualified. Continue reading

How Do You Stop People Spying on Your Phone?

I have started to work on a little side project, but right now it is just in the planning stages. I am trying to figure out how to prevent people from using things like kik spy, programs which intrude on your privacy. There are actually a great many of these programs and they are widely used. I have a lot of questions about how it can be done and I have been looking for answers without really finding them. I have not found an employer’s helpline yet, but I need to figure out a lot of things that seem difficult for me to get answers to. In fact the big questions involve money, not only the money to operate the business itself though. If you are going to be doing it part of the time, then you can go on working in the office. However that is probably not a really practical idea in reality. There are only so many hours in the day, and this project is going to take a good bit of time. Continue reading
