For the first time in a long time, I’ve gotten back into watching hockey games. I used to watch them a lot when I was a kid, but I stopped when I went away to college. I got tired of seeing the games, mainly because of my home team losing them all. Not only did I start watching the games again, but I also started betting on them using betting web sites that my friend told me about some time ago. He said that he had been using them to make money by placing bets every now and then, and it had been working out for him pretty well.
I started by making a small bet on my home team. Continue reading “Winning from a Home Team Loss”
Since my wife and I were able to get our wedding invitations from B&G Direct, we were able to save a ton of money on the wedding. The other places that we looked at were charging an arm and a leg for their invitations, and we weren’t going to take it. A lot of people like to spend a lot of money on their wedding, and in the process, they go broke while doing it. My wife and I decided that we wopuldn’t fall into that trap and wanted to make sure that we stayed under a particular budget, so we could put that money to other things in the future. I thing that frugal nature is part of the reason why I married my wife.
We also saved some money on the wedding cake by making our own. Continue reading “Wedding Plannning on a Budget”
I have been having trouble with my vision for a long time and they kept telling me that it was not time for me to get the surgery until just recently. They started me on all of these eye drops and then they gave me the wrong type. I do not know how or why the pharmacy got it mixed up, but the guy who was giving them to me figured it out. The stuff was called careprost and he asked me if I had glaucoma. I told him that I was getting cataract surgery and they wanted me to do the eye drops before I got it and then after I did, all in a specific fashion. In fact I was wondering why they could not do both eyes in the same trip. I have to get up really early in the morning and then they say that it only takes less than half an hour. Luckily for me this guy caught the mistake and he managed to get me what I needed.
In fact it seems as though these people do this surgery on a virtual assembly line. Continue reading “I Have to Get Cataract Surgery”
I need glasses to see up close, but I cannot use bifocals at the computer. They make you have to tilt your head back to see, and that becomes extremely uncomfortable on my neck in a short period of time. I needed glasses that had the entire lens set to see what I was looking at. I want to give Dial Vision Glasses a try. They can be set to your prescription by turning a dial. It is pretty quick. I can go from the adjustment to see at a distance to the adjustment to see small text quickly. Plus, I can look out the entire lens to see the monitor. This makes them much nicer for me than just plain old bifocals. Continue reading “Seeing Better with Dial Vision Glasses”
Did you even know that hypotrichosis of eyelashes is a thing? It is when the eyelashes do not grow in thick or long. I don’t imagine too many guys worry about it, but us girls certainly do. Well, we do if we have the problem. A medication used to lower intra-ocular pressure for people with glaucoma has also been discovered to grow long and thick eyelashes. The medication is bimatoprost that is combined with synthetic analog of prostamide and sold as Careprost. It causes the growth cycle of the eyelashes to last longer. Hence, you get longer and thicker eyelashes.
Now adding mascara on top of that can help you get the eyelash look you want. Continue reading “There is a Medication That Can Make Your Eyelashes Thicker and Longer”
Of course it is not like I did not know all about this, or at least the basic facts of the situation. For at least a year, the boss has been fooling around with a brunette half his age or maybe less. She drives up to the office regularly and picks him up. Of course it was only a matter of time before the wife found out, especially since he was doing almost nothing to be discreet about it. I got the call from a divorce lawyer named Eric M. Willie, P.C. to give a disposition, which seems like a really bad idea for me, aside for one fact. The boss is the boss, but only because his wife’s family says that he is. Continue reading “The Boss Finally Got Caught”
When a friend of mine suggested that I look into a Platinum limo bus for a small family outing that I was planning, I said no at first. Thankfully, this friend is not the type to let something go when he thinks he is right. When he asked me why, I told him that I could not fill a bus like that. He told me that party buses come in so many different sizes, which was something that I did not know. I thought that a party bus was just the large buses that could hold about four dozen people or so.
While my family outing is large, it is not quite that large. Continue reading “Getting My Family to the Theater”
We had a really good time thanks to hiring a Platinum Party Bus for a brewery tour. This is not something we had done before, and we had no idea what to exactly really. But it turned out to be pretty worth it. Next time, we are going to go for a winery tour instead. Not because we did not like trying out all of the different breweries, but because we would like to say that we have done both. We can think of so many reasons that we would like to hire them as well. We are a big group of friends and family who like to get together to do things.
One of things that I love about my city is that there are so many things to do. My wife and I had moved to another smaller town many years ago, but at some point, we got really bored of the area. There just was not all that much to do. We spent a lot of time at home hanging out together. Continue reading “Moving to Where All the Cultural Action is Made Us Happy”
I write a blog. I have a bunch of posts going back several years. Very few of them have any images associated with them. I always thought it kind of silly to have to throw in a little square picture along with your blog post next to the title to help get readers interested in reading it. It’s a post. It’s words. You read it. Do you get it? Now most blog themes and websites are highly image based. And it is not easy getting pictures on the cheap. However, when I needed a cash in hands image, I had another alternative than forking over a lot of cash to get a picture of cash exchanging hands. I think it kind of funny that it was when I needed a picture of money exchanging hands for a blog post was when I found a better way to get images for my blog.

When I decided that I wanted to work overseas, I had put some thought into it, but I did not want to over think it. When I had the chance to apply for a position in China, I decided to go for it. When I got the position, I was a little stunned. I had no idea that I wold really get it, and thought that I would need to interview with several companies first. I soon found myself saying yes to the position and on a flight there. I found a place to live at Forest Woods before I even got there. This really helped me out.
I do not even speak the Chinese language, so I had to find a company that has a lot of people who are bilingual. Continue reading “Getting a New Place Was Pretty Easy to Do”
You never know where life is going to take you. When my husband and I first married, we dead set on focusing on our careers and getting ahead in life. We both thought we would always be like that. But after about 15 years of that, we both found ourselves wanting to wind down just a bit. We began realizing that we had missed out on a lot in life, and life is short. We started traveling a bit more, learning how to cook gourmet meals and even using sex toys for the fun of it. My favorite thing is the fact that we have both started reading books more often.
Relaxation is something that both of us put on the back burner for far too long. Yes, it is true that we have saved a lot, invested a lot and have quite a bit of money at our disposal now. But we made so much money that it began to feel a bit ridiculous that we never went anywhere or tried anything new with the money that we were making. We both saw that life was going to continue to spin past us while we had our heads down and working all the time. Continue reading “We Needed to Make Big Changes to Our Life”
I cannot take it anymore. My house too much for me to take. It is too crowded. I barely have any space for myself. My family has a lot of members in it, but my home does not have enough room. My personal privacy is disappearing every day. I am in constant danger of people eating my food and hogging my bathroom time. Sometimes. my family members use all of the hot water before I can take a nice shower. I know what I have to do. I am looking at apartments in Hattiesburg. I must move out of my old house and get my own place.
I hate living in my parents house. When I graduated from college, I was very broke. It was hard for me to find a job. The economy was very bad. I was stuck. Continue reading “A New Place to Live”
We wanted a luxurious outdoor space long before they became popular. One of our favorite things to do is to sit outside in the shade in the summertime. Our late evening times together with friends and neighbors is wonderful in June when the light in the sky is still there close to 10 pm. When the shadows grow long and the light fades, there is not much better than a custom firepit to gently light the night and to help keep the bugs away. We like the warmth of a firepit on the cool evenings, and they are just great to gather around and talk.
There is something primal about gathering around a fire. Continue reading “Making Summer Memories Around Our Custom Firepit”
When I was growing up my parents told me that I had caviar taste on a salmon egg income. I actually cannot stand the taste of caviar, but I did get their point. Instead of choosing the department store bicycle for my birthday that my parents wanted to buy me, I took a paper route to buy a real mountain bike. They put in the cost of the department store model, and I paid the rest. I learned to save, negotiate and work more for the things I wanted. Now I found myself going to Realtor.com Denver to pick out a home with my fiance. She has a great job and so do I. We are actually in business together and own a few convenience stores.
Though I always wanted better things when I was younger, it was not all about style or flash. I am more into substance than style. Sure, I dress the corporate executive part for our chain of stores, but I like things that are built as good as they look.
