Backyard Wedding

26 May, 2015 (08:15) | Hobbies | By: Neil

Friends of mine decided they wanted to marry on the Fourth of July. A big informal backyard wedding was planned. Everyone would sit on lawn chairs. Hot dogs and burgers would be served. Guests would be asked to bring their favorite salad and desserts. A small band would perform. The bride and groom were to marry shortly after sundown. The ceremony was timed to coincide with all the huge fireworks displays in the area. When pronounce they were husband and wife fireworks surrounding the backyard were to be set off. It was going to be so beautiful as to make everyone cry. Everything was going as planned until the fire trucks and police showed up. With the smoke from the grill along with the fireworks it looked like the house had caught fire. It was quite a commotion not exactly the romantic ending my friends hoped for.

Hard Work Pays Off

25 May, 2015 (03:38) | Home Improvement | By: Neil

Bill was a hard working man. He put in 50 hours of work at the local rock quarry every week. Sometimes he worked more than that. He got a discount on the rock materials that the company he worked for sold, so he used it to purchase the materials he would need for permeable paving work at his home. Every day when he go home from work at the rock quarry, he would work on his home. He went to bed exhausted every night, but he didn’t mind. One day his boss happened to be driving by when he was outside working at his house. Bill looked up to see his boss just staring at him in amazement. He didn’t say anything but went on working and the boss drove away. The next day at work his boss handed him a paper. It was a notice to Bill that he had been promoted. The boss had been so impressed by his work ethics he also gave him a raise. It just goes to show that hard work really does pay off.

More profits thanks to great new online marketing!

20 May, 2015 (08:49) | Marketing | By: Neil

I was in the need for some new business or at least more visitors to my clothing website. I am a designer in my spare time, but I just was not making the money I needed even to cover my costs. That is when I heard about SEO online. I hired a cheap seo agency to help me attract new people to my business. In the next month, I was a huge difference in my profits because I was actually making one for once! I could not be more thrilled as SEO is such a simple solution to online marketing. You can find SEO agencies for a really good price and they worth every penny! I would not be making extra money doing something I love if I had not hired the SEO agency. I recommend this to all my friends. Just not the competition because I need all the clients I can get!

Helping My Grandma Hear

17 May, 2015 (08:21) | Health | By: Neil

My Grandma is one of my best friends, and there is nothing that I wouldn’t do for her. When she was telling me that she was loosing her hearing, I first thought that it was just a part of getting old. After convincing her however, I was able to get her to go to the doctor to get this checked out. What the doctor found was a massive build up of wax that was causing this hearing loss. This was a very incredible discovery. The doctor referred us to an ENT doctor and we were able to go through with an ear wax removal Stockport procedure. This procedure made it so that my grandma could finally hear again. This was a blessing to everyone in our family. There was so much joy when my grandma could finally hear again at family gatherings. This is something that has been difficult for her for nearly months now, and now it is vey easy for her to hear again.

Alien to Power Ranger

11 May, 2015 (01:33) | Old Age | By: Neil

“Hi! I’m Hunter,” I exclaimed. It was the first day of elementary school and Carson, a boy in my homeroom, was sitting next to me. We found we shared a love of the Power Rangers and were getting along well. Then, Carson asked, “What’s that thing on your head? It looks like an alien arm.”

I told Carson that hearing aids like mine help people hear better and that I had had one since I was a toddler. While his comment hurt my feelings, I remembered my mom said it helped people when I explained it to them. After a moment he smiled and said, “It’s like it gives you super powers! Like the Power Rangers!”

My mom was right; people just didn’t understand. Carson and I ended up being close friends and it helped me realize my hearing aid was something that made me different in a good way.

The next ice storm

The next time you are dealing with an ice storm, why not give silica sand a try. The sand will allow for extra traction on slippery surfaces, such as sidewalks, driveways and even roadways. This type of sand makes for a great tool to have for anyone that deals with ice storms during the winter.

The best way to apply this sand is to place it in a few buckets and then with a smaller shovel, you will want to take out small amounts at a time, this will allow you to get an even texture or coat on the slippery surfaces making it more effective in fighting ice or any slippery surface.

To get your share of this sand, all you need to do is go down to the local hardware store as most will carry it in stock as it is a well known type of sand throughout the world.

When in Doubt Renovate!

29 April, 2015 (08:28) | Home Improvement | By: Neil

I am what you would call a renovation queen and every year or so I like to take a small part of my house and change it up. It could be anything form my back yard patio area to the carpets in my bathroom. This year I chose to focus on my living room windows and began shopping around for either new curtains or to try something new and purchase Manchester blinds. I liked the way curtains framed my windows but felt they were boring and just about every house had them. I had been looking at some beautifully made dark oak wood shutters and decided upon them. They were surprisingly affordable as I always try to stay on a budget and the cost of having them installed didn’t break it. They look absolutely lovely and even my husband commented on how nice they complemented the rooms colors and style.
