I Got the Gym Set Up

Obviously I can not really afford a gym, but I have an area out in my garage where I have started working out. To start with I got a nice big fan, because it would be too hot out there if you did not have that to cool you off. It is the sort of fan the guys in the shop use and as long as you stand in front of it you do need get overly hot. I found a web page with some adjustable dumbbells to buy and that saves a lot of space. The come with a little rack and the weight sits in the rack. Then you make the adjustment and it comes out of the rack with the amount of weight that you need to work out. (more…)

Loving My Apartment in Albuquerque

Sometimes I wonder if the owners of albuquerque apartments are even trying to make themselves more appealing to those who are thinking about renting an apartment. A few months ago, I wanted to leave my parents house and rent an apartment. This was going to be my big day, leaving the nest and being on my own, making my own rules. Of course, I faced the problem of not being able to find a good apartment. I searched through many ads in newspapers and books, and even searched through many online ads, but the results were pretty disappointing.

Many of the apartment complexes I encountered either didn’t have any availabilities, had bad looking apartments, or were in an undesirable area. (more…)

I Can Still Wager with Friends Back Home

The top bookmark in my internet browser is http://www.agenbola888.com. It is a portal for online gambling that I am familiar with from back home in Indonesia. I thought when I took a job in America that I would have to give up the occasional friendly wager with my friends back home, but that is not the case.

Football is almost a religion in Indonesia. It certainly is the global sport, although it is called soccer where I currently work. I know there is betting on American football, as well as basketball, hockey and baseball. Where I am from, friendly gambling is also a commonplace thing, but most of it is around soccer.

Doing Some Stuff on the Side

University of Chester Origami GraduateI guess that I expected this job to be a bit more fulfilling, but the honest truth is that it is a little too easy for my liking. When they hired me for this job I was expecting that I would need to manage things a lot more closely, but in fact this place is a bit like a well oiled machine. I can pretty much count on all of the people here to do their jobs and I do not have to look over their shoulders to make certain of it. In fact I am thinking part time degree since I probably have enough free time at my desk to earn one of those fairly easily.

Finding Cheap Storage in Singapore

August 14th, 2014, Posted in Uncategorized
Comments Off

My business is going to be having a sale of specific items that we do not sale on a year-round basis, and we do not have enough space in the building, in order to store all of the inventory that we have purchased for this purpose. As such, I am going to need to come up with another storage solution, and I would like to find one that will be cost effective. I am looking for storage space in Singapore that is relatively cheap, and can be purchased for only a few months.

As the sale of this merchandise is only going to last for a few months, I anticipate that we will only need the storage space for the period of about three months. I have already purchased this inventory, so it is going to have to go somewhere. I need to figure out the solution of where it is going to go quickly, because it will be arriving in the coming week. I almost have to have a solution in place by then, and so I am looking at storage options that are located close-by to the place of business where my company is located.

The closer the storage, less we will have to pay for transporting these products. Every penny counts in situations like this, and I am hoping to make the most of this sale. I realize that this is a bit of a unique circumstance, so it is probably best that I go and talk to a storage company directly, to see what sort of rates they can offer me. I am definitely going to try to get a discount. I don’t know if it will happen, but I know that it can’t hurt to try, and I won’t get one if I do not try.

Trying to Decide on a Holiday Destination

Comments Off

Jane and I have been Trying to decide on a holiday destination for the past few weeks. We have not really come very close to an agreement, beyond the fact that we agree to some place in the warm part of Europe. We have had a lot of good luck in our previous vacations. Last year we found a really nice Paros accommodation where I did a lot of scuba diving and where Jane and I did some yoga. It was not like I was eager to do it, but she can talk me into just about anything if she really wanted to and it was not like any of my buddies from the football club were there to snap photos and poke fun at me while I was doing this. I felt a bit ridiculous, mostly because I was really bad at it and it was rather obvious.

Great Private Music Lessons in Calgary

My youngest daughter is about to turn 7 years old, and since she is pretty young still, I think that it would be a good time to get her started in music. I am not sure what sort of instrument she would be best at, but I am thinking that I might want to get her to try out the piano. I do not know how to teach music at all, so I am looking to get her into calgary private music lessons at some point in the near future, because I think it would really be great for her development in the future.

I want to get this done pretty soon, so I am going to start searching for the best places to get music lessons around the greater Calgary area. (more…)

Condos Are Not All the Same

I have been living in my house for the past thirty years and now I am ready to move into a condo. My husband passed away last year so now I am ready to down size. The market is now better for selling a home so I am really happy that I can maximize the potential for my bottom line when it comes to selling my home. I recently looked at bond at brickell condos and thought that they were just gorgeous. They were also well within my price point and I was so happy that there were things that I could do to increase the value of my house. I had my sons come over and they ripped up all of the old carpeting that we had through four dogs that we had as pets. (more…)

Finding Insurance for a New House

I am going to buy this newly constructed house in the near future, and I am going to have to check insurance companies that provide home insurance policies in this area. I thought that I was just about ready to close on the deal, and to make the purchase of the house official, and then I realized that I still needed to get home insurance. I thought that there was something I might be forgetting, but after trying to think about what it might be, I decided that I was ready to purchase the house. (more…)
