I have fallen a few times in the past, and the only thing that was hurt was my pride. When I fell this last time though, my pride was the last thing that I was thinking of. I could barely get up on my own, and my tailbone hurt so much. It hurt to walk, it hurt to sit, it hurt to do just about anything. I spent nearly two days laying on my couch or bed, but then I knew I had to look up some Santa Maria chiropractors and find one who would be able to see me that same day.
I could not go through another day of just laying there in pain, and I knew that I needed to make sure there was nothing seriously wrong too. Continue reading
“Your skin is looking rather unhealthy,” my husband said to me one night when we were sitting down at the table for a nice dinner. It was frustrating, but I knew he was right. My mom had also pointed it out to me. I booked an appointment with an aesthetic clinic soon after my husband made that comment to me. I knew that neither he nor my mother were being cruel. We all point out changes in one another. I’m glad they said something because it made me realize that I should go get help before things got out of control.
Cosmetics have never been my thing. Most of my friends love cosmetics. Continue reading
In-line skating can be hazardous to your back. What makes it even more interesting is that I was not the skater! I was crossing a paved path from the beach to our car to get the cooler and beach umbrella. I waited as a bunch of bicyclists and skaters went by on the path. I crossed and almost got clipped by a guy zooming along super fast on skates. He was a big guy too. One of those muscle-bound dudes you always see here. My trip back across got me an appointment with my chiropractor in Santa Barbara. The same guy was on his return trip and nailed me. You would think he would have learned by almost hitting me the first time to not be looking at his phone and power skating. Continue reading
I often play video games when I go visit my grandparents. Just recently, my grandfather began to take an interest in my games. He began asking me which ones I play, how I figure out how to best play them and more. I asked if he wanted to try one of them out, and he was hooked soon after. I set up my favorite game for him to play, then I downloaded a Virtual Families 2 hack so that I could get him some of the items in the game that will help him play easier. He is 84 years old, and I think it is pretty cool that he is now playing, too.
I visit my grandparents during school holidays and for a few weeks every summer. Mom says this gives her some time off for herself, and she also wants me to be close to my grandparents. I love to visit them. They spend a lot of time doing things with me when I am visiting. Continue reading
I don’t like it when people stonewall. What that means is that if I ask questions and someone refuses to answer, that is a problem for me. It is abusive in my eyes. My wife had suddenly started stonewalling when it comes to the Snapchat app she uses. I wondered if there is a way to hack Snapchat easily, and there certainly is! All I had to do was to download another little app that does all the work for me. I am so grateful for all the little tech helps that are available to people now, and this particular one also saved my relationship.
The reason that I left the last woman that I dated years agao is because she was super secretive about so many things. It was like pulling teeth to get her to tell me where she was going, where she had been, etc. Continue reading
My sister still lives in Singapore with our parents. She takes care of their needs, but she has always wanted her own business. Though our parents do need a little extra help, they are supportive of her living out her dream. They helped her lease a place, buy furnishings and hire staff for her nail salon. My sister is a real go getter. I paid for her first three rounds of flyer distribution in Singapore to get her business off the ground. She started out with two part-time helpers, and now she has five full-time workers who are swamped with clients.
My sister’s approach is to do it right the first time to keep customers coming back again and again. She also personally trains each staff member to do the manicures and pedicures her way no matter how much experience or training they have. My sister uses innovation and bold techniques that wow her customers. She has an incredible amount of male customers who want good looking nails too. Continue reading
Birthdays, backyard barbecues and summer vacation are just three things that can cause me to go off my diet. I do well when the routine of work and days off is consistent. When there is a special occasion, I can fall off of the diet wagon a little too quick. Two weeks ago started three birthdays, one was mine, and two backyard barbecues, and I started my vacation too. Now I’m looking online at the IdealShape meal replacement shake reviews to see if they will work for me to lose the fat I gained.
Am I disappointed in myself? Yes, I really am. I have worked very hard getting into shape by watching my diet and lifting weights. I was proud of the way I looked. Then my jeans fit tight after my vacation was over. Continue reading
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!
Of course this is not going to be legal, but this guy was claiming that he had figured out a way that he could tell me how to get free money on paypal. He was using some sort of program, which it was claimed could help you get up to a thousand dollars. I could probably get away with it without getting punished, but the reward simply does not seem worth the risk to me. I could use a thousand dollars, just like anyone else could, but a thousand dollars is simply not worth a great deal of risk. Continue reading
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
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
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
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. Continue reading
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
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
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
I have backpacked and hiked a good deal, but I have not ever attempted anything this ambitious in the past. I am think about how long it would take to hike the length of the Appalachian Trail, from Georgia to New York and on Maine. I am wondering how long it would take and how practical it would be for me to take the whole trip at once. Right now I am working on a backpacking gear list and trying to figure out how well I can pick up provisions while I am on the route. I am aware that there are a good number of places where you can stop, do your laundry and pick up supplies. Continue reading
We have to shoot interviews with our industry professionals to keep our employees in the loop of ever changing and developing technology. Nothing is static in our business. A week could go by and something could come along that has the potential to change our market landscape. We stay profitable and relevant by quickly adapting to developments in our field. If we can make it better, we do. We shoot a lot of our overseas experts using a company that does corporate video in Singapore. They shoot, edit and produce what we need in a timely manner.
For example, a scientist recently released a paper on the development of something new in our medical marketplace electronics. It is a game changer as far as we are concerned. We wanted our scientists to ask him a lot of questions to fully inform our people on what was coming down the Pike. Our senior scientists are in Singapore, so we flew him in to have a video shoot done. It was great. Continue reading
I just had an unexpected delight during my stay here in Singapore. I went with a friend to a restaurant, and he said that they were serving Spanish food. I was a bit skeptical at first, because this is not a place I would think that you could find good Spanish food, but it turns out that I was wrong. We had some Spanish Tapas for lunch at the restaurant he took me too, and it was some of the best Tapas I have ever had in my life, which is saying something, as I have visited Spain a few times.
Spanish cuisine has always been one of my favorites, and I think that is largely due to the fact that my grandmother was from Spain. Continue reading
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
