I have a good bit of money in my pension fund and I have a good many other investments. My main business in real estate, it is not exactly like I am a tycoon or anything. However I have made a very good living from buying houses at a discount and selling houses. In fact where it makes sense I rent them out, but that is sort of tedious. I do not exactly like trying to force people to pay their rent and I hate kicking people out of a house. I am thinking that horse racing syndicates would be something more fun, but in truth I am going to transition away from things where I have to keep my hand on the steering wheel and towards things which are much more hands off.

My wife and I work from home. We put in a lot of hours at the computer to pay the bills. Lunch was usually microwaved fare. Then we bought a really nice sandwich toaster. We have been enjoying the many different sandwiches that can be made. We can get exotic with everything from pastrami to Reuben sandwiches, but a good old grilled cheese is still probably my favorite. I really like grilled cheese with tomato and a bowl of tomato soup. Not the stuff made with water. I like tomato soup made with milk. It makes for a heavy lunch, but it is oh so good!
We use our sandwich toaster at least three or four days a week. We kind of dislike the microwave meals now. Making sandwiches with fresh breads and fresh ingredients is so much more enjoyable than heating up a plastic tub of something in the microwave. I think it is better for us too. (more…)
There is so much to do to prepare for college. It seems like there is a million things to do. Now I find that preparing for just one year studying at a school in a different country takes about a million more things to get ready. I was not too worried about it but my parents were freaking out. I already had a passport for when we traveled to Canada and England. I just needed to get my student visa in order, find a room to let in Edinburgh, as they say, and finalize my enrollment at the school. I was already in as far as the school was concerned. I had a professor actually make some calls for me, and I received a call back from the school. Now it is all just paperwork.
Where I will be staying seems decent. (more…)
I hate that fact that people have to live in fear in their own neighborhoods, but that’s the kind of world that we live in now. You never know when a criminal is going to strike, and it’s better to be prepared for it than to be caught with your pants down. The only way to know when a criminal is in the vicinity is by having a watchful eye on them at all times, and that can only be done with CCTV systems. I have a system set up at my home with 8 cameras that watch every part of the exterior of my home, from the front to the back.
Each camera is connected to one receiver that also records the footage. I can access the cameras directly from the receiver while I am at home, or I can use my smartphone to look at it while I’m out. (more…)
I have a meeting in Bristol in the near future, and it is a board of directors meeting for the company. Something that does not happen very often, and I want to try to make a good impression, as always. So I am going to hire a limo to take me to the business meeting. More than that, I shall need to look to hire Bristol chauffeurs and I really would like to hire someone with a lot of experience for the job. I do not want to let anyone think that I am not spending a lot of money for top notch service. I mean, it is not completely necessary that I go through any of this. But so much of this life is about posturing, and making impressions, that it does almost seem necessary in a sense.
I hope that this meeting will go over better than the last one we had. A couple of the members got into an argument that got a bit more personal than it ever should have. It was not fun to watch and it was certainly regrettable. I hope that this meeting will keep a more professional tone throughout. I guess I will have to wait to see if that is the case or not. But I sure hope it will be.
One thing I am concerned about is my accommodations. I have yet to make accommodations for where I am going to stay the night after the meeting. I had meant to have my secretary do that, and either I forgot to tell her, or she forgot to make them. Either way, looks like I am on my own now. I will probably figure that out, after I figure out this current business about finding a chauffeur to hire for my limo.
As a historian I have been hired to lead tours of some of the most famous historical locations in my country. I have been teaching for years and traveled abroad learning history of other countries as well. I have spent a lot of time in the UK researching for work about the historical origins of my country. By chance I was asked to take over for a tour leader of a small group. They had already taken care of the coach hire in Bristol, the guests had already paid and they needed a replacement to direct the tour.
I had seen all of the places we were going to many times. As a teacher I had been allowed VIP access to see parts of buildings and grounds that were off-limits to the public. I was confident in my ability to lead the tour. Out of the whole day, I was fascinated by the bus we were in. Well, over there they call it a coach. (more…)
This article will go over all of the pros that you would see if you chose to live in Alicante Villa Apartments. One of the biggest things that sets them apart from the rest of the competition is their pricing. While some other apartment complexes out there on the market may have a lower price, you would be hard pressed to find one that has such low rent pricing for all of the things that they have to offer. Another great thing about them is all of the amenities that they have to offer their residents.
The biggest one of their amenities that that they offer 24 hour maintenance. That means if you have any issues at all with your plumbing or whatever it may be, someone will be on call to fix it right away. (more…)
When my husband was given a promotion, it meant that we had to move to London. I am a school teacher, and it was not as easy for me to just pick up and leave like it was for him. Because of that, we ended up having two houses until I finished out the school year. During those six months, my husband set up our new home and I packed up everything from our old one. I also started looking for teaching jobs that I would be able to apply for once I got to London full time myself.
Even though he was making more money than we could even begin to imagine with his promotion, I still I wanted to teach. My passion is in getting kids excited for whatever it is I am teaching on any given day, and seeing them come alive with their new knowledge. I did not want to just sit around the house doing nothing. Thankfully, I was able to locate a really good jobs board that was for teachers and others in the education field. (more…)
Only a woman who has gone through any kind of hair loss can understand the pain of someone going through it for the first time. I used to have the thickest hair, but that changed when I had to start taking cancer treatments. While the cancer was beat, my hair was one of the casualties. I was heartbroken that I no longer had gorgeous, thick hair, and I even got depressed over it. A woman in one of my support groups told me about natural hair clip ins, but I was not convinced that anything could help me.
She pulled out her phone and started going through pictures on it. She showed me a picture of her right after she finished her own treatments, and I would not have recognized her had I not known she was showing me pictures of herself. Her hair looked pretty bad, and I knew that she could empathize with what I was going through. I was confused though, because her hair was gorgeous at the support group meetings, and I thought she might be wearing a wig. (more…)
I have been working for a month solid and the office is almost ready for duty now. We have a dozen guys setting up the machinery already I got a dymo 99012 system, but we are not getting it to work just yet. The system is more complex than it is supposed to be and the guy who was supposed to use it seems to be a bit on the clueless side. Of course it is me, Ron, Milton and a half a dozen temp guys we hired from this temp agency. Ian and I will figure out which ones of them we want to keep and which ones are not any use. If they look like they are going to work hard at this stuff we are going to keep them and train them, but if they do not want to keep the job it is going to be easy to figure it out.
Of course you have to think hard and long before you put a guy on full time. S it makes a lot of sense to use temp guys. (more…)
My wife and looked at all of the premade plans for small cottages. We were moving onto a plot of land we purchased that had a dilapidated cottage on it. We had the structure razed and were planning to build a new place. After looking at what different construction companies were offering as their off-the-shelf models for cottages, we decided to spend a little extra money and hire architects in southeast London to design us a place based on how we like to live. I have to say that the results were superior to choosing blueprints designed for the masses.
Our place is built around how we live. We had so many changes we were wanting to make in the standard cottage style homes builders were offering that it actually saved us money to have a design drawn up. This way it could be built without any modifications being necessary. We ended up with a custom home that was not any more expensive than having a standard one modified to suit our needs. Another positive is that the architects in southeast London knew the best construction firm to hire to build it. (more…)
