Information for Direct TV Prices in NY

I just moved to New York, and it is a big change from where I used to live. I used to live in North Carolina, so one of the big differences is just the weather. Of course, there are a lot of other differences as well. But I am trying to get comfortable in my new place and I find that I need to get television hooked up. I am going to check out DirecTV in New York and see if they have any good offers for television.

I think that Direct TV might be a good idea, because I don’t think that I want to go with any o the cable television providers that are available in New York. I am not gonig to go into why I don’t want to, but there are a few reasons that come to mind. Anyway, I need to get this television issue sorted out soon, so that I can get to watching television. The sooner it can be sorted out, the better.

I have a show that I want to watch that is going to be re-starting for the next season, and it is going to start in about a week’s time. So one thing I really want to do is to get my television installed and ready to go watch before the air date of that first episode of the new season. I really don’t want to miss it, or to have to go to someone else’s house in order to watch it. Rather, I would like to enjoy it from the comfort of my own home. So I will get busy and see if I can make that happen. I definitely want to get a television package that includes as many different channels as I possibly can. I do watch a lot of television.

Great Electricity Prices Near Killeen, Texas

I sometimes wonder about the future of energy production in this country. It seems at some point we have to move away from fossil fuels, but it probably won’t be any time soon. I am looking for a new provider at my house. My research has led me to this site – http://www.energyproviderstexas.com/texas-electric-company-rates/k/kileen/ and I have been taking advantage of the resources on this site to check out electricity rates in the area where I live. I see a little variation in the prices between different competing electricity companies, but not really as much as I had expected.

I am pretty sure that I am going to be switching to a new company for electricity. I have not had a good experience with the customer service staff at this company in the past, and there have been some other things that have annoyed me about the company over the years. One of the things that has annoyed me the most, is that the electricity bill is always kind of confusing, and I think that there is a bit of a lack of transparency there. I wish that they had the bill laid out in a way that was more intuitive to read, instead of making it hard to understand.

But I guess I won’t have to worry about that for much longer, since I have already pretty much made up my mind that I won’t use this company going forward. But before I can switch, I need to make sure that I am changing to a company that is going to be better than the one that I currently have. That is why I am online doing this research, and I have already figured out a lot of things. But I am not done comparing different companies yet, and I have some more reading to do.

The Best Deep Fryer for My Kitchen

People find it hard to believe when I tell them I eat fried foods at least once or twice a week. I eat healthy the rest of the time, so I feel that this small indulgence is fine. I just love the taste of deep fried chicken and fries, and eating deep fried shrimp is at the top of the list too. I used to bake everything, but it just did not taste the same at all. That is when I decided to look online to find the best deep fryers.

I decided that if I was going to splurge on this once or twice a week, I wanted to have the best deep fryer not only for taste but for convenience too. I had an older one, but it took me just as long to clean up as it did to prepare the food, which is a huge no no in my kitchen. I want something that is quick and easy to clean, and I did not want to have grease splatters or even the scent of grease lingering in the kitchen long after a meal is over.

I found a site that compares several of the most popular deep fryers, and that is how I came to get the one that I now use. I liked everything about it, from the look to the reviews on how easy it was to clean up after a meal. I thought that I was going to end up putting it away when I was not using it, but the deep fryer looks really nice so I just leave it sitting out on my counter. It is a small one because it is just me here, so I didn’t need one that would make huge meals. That is another reason that I can do this, because I do eat small portions!

Working a Temp Job in Roof Repair

I have been working on a new job and I am not sure how long I am going to be able to do it. I get the feeling that these people must go through a whole lot of people, because I am pretty sure that they do not pay enough to make me want to do this job for very long. I am working in a temp job i roofing companies in nyc area so far far it has not been awful, but the weather has been quite mild the last couple of days. Of course it is going to be blazing hot in a couple of weeks. There is not much double that it will get a lot warmer than it has been and when it does it is going to be brutal when it does get hot. You get a really hot day and then you get up on top of the roof of a black tar building, that is going to turn in to a big problem in a really big hurry.

Started to Ramp Up the Work out Regimen

I have been getting in progressively better shape for well over a year and a half now and I have just now started to ramp up the work out regimen. In fact I have been working on some pretty serious cardio routines, but I have been looking at the very best Insanity max 30 reviews and trying to figure out if that is the next step for me. Of course I am trying to be measured. I want to go to something that is going to really move the bar, but of course you have to still maintain some semblance of balance in the regimen. You can not go completely over the top with it the way that some people do. If you do not have some level of moderation you are going to end up harming yourself. Of course it is not possible to work out while you are injured and if you are not careful you go too far and end up spraining something or getting hurt in some other way.

So I want to work out as hard as I am able to work out, but I want to do it safely. Of course they would tell you to consult a doctor if they were talking about this sort of thing like this. In this case you have to think about what you can do and how hard you can do it. If you over stress the system it is going to break down on you and so you have to stress the system just enough, but then stop before you start to damage. The key is to recover and that takes a period of rest. So you have to schedule the workout properly and do it on a regular schedule, just like following a clock day after day.

Plumber Services in Morris County

This is kind of ridiculous, but I am going to have to hire a plumber in Morris County NJ to come and unclog the sink in my bathroom, because it is really stuck right now, and I have tried all sorts of things to try to get it to flow again, but it is one of the worst clogs that I have ever seen in my life. I am not sure why it is so clogged up, but as far as I can tell, it seems to be due to an accumulation of hair in the drain over a long period of time. My wife always brushes her hair over the sink, and who knows how much hair ends up going down the drain. It is probably quite a bit of hair, and so that is probably a large part of the problem.

It seems like if it was just hair though, then I would be able to do something to get rid of the clog on my own. I tried some drain cleaning stuff from the store, and it did not help. I tried flushing it with hot water, repeatedly, and that did not help. Then I tried flushing it with boiling water, and some other remedies that I read on the web. But none of them seemed to work, or if they did help,, it was only by a marginal amount. So I guess that I have no choice but to turn to a professional.

It is kind of defeating to be defeated by a drain, but at the same time, I know when to throw in the towel, and this drain got the best of me. So I am going to call a plumber and set up an appointment for one to come over to my house and fix it.

A Birthday Throw for My Mom

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love designer homewares. I am not the type to go to the store at the mall and buy gifts for people in my life, because I always put more thought into it than that. When my mother’s birthday was approaching last year, I knew that I had to start looking for a unique gift for her. She is really a very simple person as far as possessions go, so I knew that she would not enjoy what most others would. That did not mean it made it harder to find her the perfect gift though, because I have a list of websites that sell products for most of the people in my life.

When I looked at the designer homewares site, I knew that I was going to get her a throw. She recently had surgery, and her recovery time has been slower than usual, probably because of her age. She never used to be cold all the time, but since her surgery, she is always wearing a sweater. I knew that she would enjoy a tart blanket because I have two myself. Because of that, I knew how much warmth they provide, and they are also very pleasant to look at.

I was able to choose from a variety of colors, so I went with the blue and green one since green is her favorite color. They are a very generous size, so she would be able to throw it over her shoulders when she is watching television in the evenings. She can also put it over her lap if her legs are cold. The soft cotton feel is not heavy at all, so she would be able to get the warmth she needs without feeling suffocated. I was able to order it online, and it was delivered just days later, right in time for her birthday. Needless to say, she loved her gift!

The Advantages of Quality VPS Hosting

Technology seems to have turned into a bit of a double edged sword, as it adds many great possibilities, but it also makes many people take the work involved for granted. This is the case with websites and hosting them, as the average customer knows nothing about the inner workings of their favorite web platforms and apps. The bottom line is that while some mom and pop shop may not need much technology to get on the web, any serious business can quickly get in over their head trying to keep up. VPS hosting is a great way to get the latest and greatest technology and hardware, but also eliminates many of the hassles and obstacles that typically come with more advanced setups.

This may sound way too good to be true, but it is actually a fairly reasonable solution to the problems that many companies face. Using VPS hosting is a great way to save money, both in terms of the price of the service and in terms of the support staff required to use it. In many cases to run a large website it takes a large support staff to handle everything from keeping hardware running to patching software with the latest updates. Even in today’s day of automation, the bottom line is that someone needs to set up the automation and ensure it is working.

A VPS host avoids most of this, as the company will not be hosting dedicated hardware but rather sharing it with other clients. This means that the cost to keep the servers up and running is much cheaper, but the architecture of the VPS setup also gives plenty of power and control. This means a company does not have to worry about scalability if they need more power or bandwidth, while they can also run all kinds of custom software without problems.

Try to Always Contribute when You Can

There are many different services that you can choose from when you are looking for cheap satellite internet. How do you sift through all of those companies and find which one is right for you. Luckily you don’t really have to do that anymore, there are sites out there like cheapestsatellitetv.org/. That are specifically designed with the user in mind, they are easy to get to and once you are there finding out the prices is easy as clicking a button. You type in your area code into the box and then right away you have the results that you are looking for. It will tell you most of the companies that are offering services in your area and then tell you the average price that users around you are paying. Now of course the system is not perfect so if you find a bug, let them know and they will probably get on it. The system relies on user input however, so if there are not a lot of tech savvy people in your area or people that are not keen on filling out reviews you might end up with some pretty low quality results, if this happens to you than you can try to help the next person out by finding the results out yourself and filling them in so the next guy can get more accurate results. This is an important step and if you end up having to call around yourself I urge you to fill in the boxes so the next guy has a better chance of having it easy. Of course not all people think it is worth their time to fill out a quick survey, and if that is the case than you can just move right along. It’s just sort of rude to expect results without expecting to contribute.

The Surprising Growth of Singapore

Singapore has rapidly been developing their residential infrastructure for several years now, turning the once barren skyline into a glittering vista sparkling with the success of their growing economy. I got the chance to visit the singapore new launch of their luxury condos a week ago which showcased several improved condominiums that show off a blend of Western luxury and Eastern conservatism. It is a fantastic style of approach which offers up high class luxury while conserving space without becoming an uncomfortably tight space in which to live and play in. Most Asian countries build their condominiums, apartments and even their homes more for the purpose of sleeping and eating – community is elsewhere. While this may not always be the case, it is a architecture style that is necessary as many countries have limited space in which they are able to develop freely without consequence.

Singapore really is on to something big. They are going to be able to go far if they are able to sustain the balance that they have achieved with spending and cost saving cuts which have allowed them this economic period of growth. By welcoming foreign investors and helping local businesses with their business friendly programs, they are encouraging growth that will make ripples for years. It is very exciting to see a country pull itself out from under economic depression, war and the stain of human rights violations. They have become a model that I feel other Asian nations should look to as an example of what smart policies can achieve without having to bow to Western pressures to cultivate a government that reflects their own. They are going to become ann influence that will have other nations looking to create trade agreements with them, especially as they are working on constructing some of the most advanced shipyards in the world.

Great Way to Keep Costs Down

Automation is the wave of the future, because of the rise of the cost of employees. Thanks to President Obama and the higher cost of health care many companies are rethinking automation. In the past I would have never thought of getting rid of employees in favor of robots and machines, but now with the threat of minimum wage going up to over 15$ I may need to rethink my possession on it. I went online to gather some information;

I did a Google search for robotic case packaging systems.I really don’t think these activists like President Obama and Nancy Pelosi understand how small businesses make their money. Don’t get me wrong I would much rather have happy employees, but with the bad economy and the rise of costs just to do business I need to save every penny. I heard a politician say on television the other day that businesses are made to give people jobs. Apparently they think that making a living and a profit is a bad thing. They don’t seem to understand if you can’t make a profit, then you have no need to hire employees. If you just get buy you can’t pay your bills and pay a living wage to your employees.

That is why if I do have to use automation for my job, I am going to feel bad for the employees because I do care for them, but the employees don’t have to look any further than their local democrats for the blame. Your website helped me find exactly the type of machine I would need and surprisingly the cost was much less than I thought it would be. Now I will be able to save money and still get the work done that I need to keep my company making money.

Cheap Great Coffee Beans Online

I am tired of buying my coffee from the store, because I do not think it is very fresh, and at the same time, I think that it i tends to cost too much. I need to save some money and so I am going to try to buy my coffee beans over the web in the hope of getting a good deal. I have heard that you can buy coffee in bulk over the web and get a good price on it. But I have yet to look into this claim and to see if there is any truth to it.

I feel like for the most part, with most things that you might want to buy, there is a place you can get it for cheaper on the web. But that does not always mean that it is going to be available at a good level of quality. That is a concern when it comes to coffee, because I drink coffee for the flavor. If I did not want to drink something that tasted really good then, I would not worry with buying whole coffee beans, and instead, I would just drink instant coffee from a jar.

But that is not the case, I do care about how my coffee tastes, and that is why it is important for me to find some really high quality coffee on the internet to purchase for my home. I am just about out of coffee, so I am going to need to place an order pretty soon if I am going to have it shipped to my house,before I run out. If I do not get it soon enough, then I would have to go to the store and buy some, and that kind of defeats my purposes in the first place.

Mom Loves the New House Cleaner I Hired for Her

My mom and dad were married for 64 amazing years. They had a great marriage together, and they were great parents, too. Unfortunately, my beloved father passed away last year. Not long after, my mother injured herself when she fell outside, and she was having a rough time cleaning the house alone. I decided that getting her a house cleaner in Westchester County NY was something that needed to be done right away.

It all started when I caught mom trying to climb a ladder in her bedroom to clean off the ceiling fan. First, I asked her to come down from the ladder and let me do it for her. But she refused. So, I rushed to her side to steady the ladder while she was up there. Things seemed okay until she caught the side of her foot on one of the ladder rungs and she fell four feet to the ground below. She broke her ankle, and she is very lucky she did not hurt herself even worse than that.

A few weeks after her fall, I came over to visit again and caught mom teetering on top of a step-stool as she was washing down her kitchen cabinets. She was doing this while she had her ankle brace on her leg! I knew something needed to be done immediately.

I began quietly calling a variety of cleaning services and finally settled on one who said they were sending over someone who is in her 50s. I figured that since she is closer to mom’s age, they might have some great conversations. I was right. Mom and the cleaning lady get along great! Mom said they have had a lot of fun talking, and she loves that she can rest now while someone helps her keep things clean.

I Am Using a Cleaning Service So That I Can Go Back to School

I graduated from college many years ago, but had been toying with the idea of going back to school to get my Master’s degree for quite some time. I have two children and my hubby is a busy professional, so I wondered how I would keep up with home maintence, if I were to go back to school. He told me we should hire a house cleaner in Danbury CT and he would pay for it.

I began looking online for a company that had good reviews. I was happy to find that there are many happy customers out there who like to talk about the great service they get with the cleaning businesses they use. I called a few of them to discuss what I was looking for and talk pricing. I finally narrowed it down to one particular company, and they came out to discuss what I needed.

The woman they sent out was a very young college student who does house cleaning part time to supplement her college costs while she lives with her parents. She said she had been providing her services for several years, and she loved doing it in her free time. She seemed really knowledgeable, and I agreed that I love to have her help me out.

She shows up just two times per week for about four hours each time. She does a fabulous job. I worried that she may not clean as well as I do, but she did just fine. I have gone ahead and applied to a local college and have been accepted, and we completely trust our expert cleaner to come over when we are not home to get the house looking nice. My husband is happy with her, and it is allowing me to focus on going back to school.

What is a Good Remote Computing Suite?

I have been looking for a way to use my computer while I am not really on the scene, remote operation is the term I would suppose. There are a good number of options from what I understand and my needs are not all that significant. I am not sure which option is the best though. I would think that teamviewer would do what I need for it to do, but I have not figured out the exact details of what it does yet. My problem is that I am doing some things at home which require a lot of time and a lot of processor power. I have the computer working all night when I am asleep and when i go to work in the morning I want to crank it up and have it doing a job as well. I have a lot of side jobs which all require the use of a lot of computing power and a good bit of computer time.

Of course a lot of time I do not really have the time to run two processes while I am gone, but usually I can start something before I leave for work and it is going to be done about the time that I having my lunch hour. So if I could use the computer to load up a new job, that would double the output. It might not be done when I get home, but that would just be the way that it would be. I am going to start work on a second, more powerful and more specialized computer. That would make things a lot more streamlined and obviously I would still be able to use my old computer. Having two machines would make it possible to do the work in a reasonable time.

Cheap House Cleaning in Bergen County

My roommate is a lazy slob and I really am tired of having to deal with the messes that he makes. I am not willing to clean up all of his nonsense on my own, and I am not willing to live in this type of mess. So I have decided that I am going to hire a house cleaner and then charge him more rent. I am looking at hiring someone for house cleaning in Bergen county NJ in the near future and I want to find someone that will be able to get started with the cleaning as soon as possible. Because I am really sick of the way things are right now.

There is cat litter all over the apartment, he has trash bags in the hall way outside of his room. To my knowledge, he has not changed the trash in the kitchen in over 6 months. It is just ridiculous. He doesn’t clean his dishes, and he doesn’t have any dishes left to use, because they are all dirty and he doesn’t clean anything. As such, he only eats fast food now, and it is kind of ridiculous.

But anyway, I Need to stop complaining and just hire someone to take care of it, because it is disgusting to live in a place like this. I am really grossed out by it, and it is so difficult to deal with. I really like my roommate as a person, but I just wish that I had never let him move in with me. It has been much more of a burden than I could have ever known. I wish that he would just take some responsibility and learn to clean up after himself. It would be very nice if he would do just that but I will keep my fingers crossed.

A Club for Train Horn Lovers

I just can’t get enough of Train Horns Unlimited! I first discovered the site when I was on the hunt for a train horn to be added to my car, and after lots of searching, I found it and became a happy customer. I bought a standard train horn from them and put it in my car. This was the first time I ever installed anything in my car, but it certainly wouldn’t be the last. The sound of the horn was so satisfying that I showed it to all my friends and family. Some of them were annoyed to hear the horn, but others love it. It reminded them of the classic train sound that they don’t get to hear anymore because they usually take the subway.

I wanted to experience the other horns they had on their site, so I bought another train horn. This horn was based on European trains and it had a different sound the horns that Americans are used to hearing. Choosing a favorite among the horns that I’ve tried so far is pretty hard, but I really like the European sound.

It turns out that in my area, there is a club for people who like train horns. I hadn’t seen anything about this club before, but apparently they existed for many years, and I was their newest member. They all discussed the train horns they had in their cars and what other new horns they heard about. They even talked about the national train horn convention. It was a surprise to me that other train horn lovers were in the country, had their own club, and even had a convention for it. I went to my first convention later that year, and had a fun time. It was nice meeting new people and seeing new horns.

    Churchs current album, The Outsiders, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart and the Billboard Country Albums Chart earlier this year, and his current hit single Give Me Back My Hometown, is Top 5-and-rising. Eric Church is working on a level that few other country artists of his generation can touch, said Ken Tucker at NPR Music in his review of the album, continuing, Shrewd, defiant, sly and funny, Eric Church has succeeded in what he set out to do: Hes using the power hes accrued from making hit records to make exactly the kind of album he wants, heedless of industry approval. And this is how good he is: Now hell go out and through the singles hell release, the touring hell do and the videos hell make probably turn this personal project into a big commercial deal. The Outsiders deserves nothing less.

    The Outsiders is the follow-up to Churchs Platinum-certified album Chief, (named the 2012 Album of the Year by both CMA and ACM, and GRAMMY-nominated for Best Country Album) which featured five Top 20 singles: Homeboy (certified Platinum for sales in excess of one million singles); the Top 10 Like Jesus Does and the Top 5 Creepin (both certified Gold for sales in excess of 500,000 singles each); and two No. 1 hits Drink in My Hand (certified Platinum) and Springsteen (certified Double Platinum for sales in excess of two million singles).

Carolina had three hit singles: the Top 10 Hell on the Heart as well as Top 20 hit Smoke A Little Smoke and Top 10 smash Love Your Love The Most, which were both certified Gold. Sinners Like Me spawned three Top 20 singles: How Bout You, Two Pink Lines, and Guys Like Me.

    Dwight Yoakam has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, placing him in an elite group of global superstars. Nearly 40 of Yoakams singles have charted, with 14 peaking in the Top 10, including the hits Honky Tonk Man, Please, Please Baby, Little Ways, I Sang Dixie, It Only Hurts When I Cry, and Fast as You. He is a 21-time nominated, 2-time GRAMMY Award winner.

    Brandy Clarks debut album, 12 Stories, was released in October 2013 and has received tremendous critical acclaim.

  2. Slaid Cleaves
    Event on 2014-10-01 19:30:00

    Slaid Cleaves spins stories with a novelists eye and a poets heart. Twenty years into his career, the celebrated songwriters Still Fighting the War spotlights an artist in peak form. Cleaves seamless new collection delivers vivid snapshots as wildly cinematic as they are carefully chiseled. Dress William Faulkner with faded jeans and a worn six-string for a good idea. Slaids a craftsman, says Terri Hendrix, who sings harmony on Texas Love Song. He goes about his songs like a woodworker.Accordingly, Cleaves earthy narratives stand oak strong. Men go off to war for a hundred reasons/But they all come home with the same demons, he sings on the albums title track. Some you can keep at bay for a while/Some will pin you to the floor/Youve been home for a couple of years now, buddy/But youre still fighting the war. Few writers frame bruised souls as clearly. Fewer still deliver a punch with such striking immediacy. I started Still Fighting the War four years ago and originally each verse was a separate character, Cleaves explains. Each verse was about getting swindled. One was about the economy, one was about a returning veteran, one was about a broken-up couple. It was too cumbersome, so I focused in on the soldier. The key that made it all work came as I was talking to my friend and occasional co-writer, Ron Coy. A troubled Vietnam vet buddy of his had recently passed away. Ron said, All this time, it was like he was still fighting the war. I knew instantly that was the perfect way to summarize the song.Cleaves delivers equal measures of hope and resignation throughout this 2013 release as life lessons slide subtly through side doors. Normally when I start writing a new batch, a theme starts to emerge after three or four songs, says Cleaves, who built an unlikely success story from scratch after moving to Austin, Texas, from Maine two decades ago. This time around I thought, Im just gonna write where the muse takes me and each song will be its own thing. So I ended up with a CD that has a bit more variety on it compared to my previous releases. Half the songs are about struggle and perseverance and half are all over the place, some tongue-in-cheek stuff, a gospel song, a Texas pride song. Witness deft wordplay on the latter: Your wits as sharp as a prickly pear/The sun shines in your golden hair/Your smile hits me right in the solar plexus, Cleaves sings with a wink in Texas Love Song. Skin as soft as early morning rain/Temper like a Gulf Coast hurricane/I love you even more than I love Texas. Originally, the phrase was I love you almost as much as I love Texas, Cleaves says, because that's about as far as a true proud Texan will go. Then I realized that if I committed the sin of saying I love you even more than I love Texas, it trips off the tongue better. It was a fun little challenge to come up with so many rhymes for Texas.Of course, Cleaves conquered the task. Longtime fans expect nothing less. After all, Still Fighting the War follows the razor sharp songwriters undeniable hat trick Broke Down (2000), Wishbones (2004) and Everything You Love Will Be Taken Away (2009) that established him as a singular storyteller. His golden key: effortlessly shading dark with light. Cue Cleaves excellent double-disc Sorrow & Smoke: Live at the Horseshoe Lounge for inarguable evidence (Drinkin Days, Wishbones, Horseshoe Lounge). You get a lot of the man behind the lyrics, Hendrix says. What you see with Slaid is what you get: He doesnt have the eyes of a cynic. He has optimism about him through a realistic gaze and writes with a wise voice. The Kerrville Folk Festival recognized those intangible qualities long ago when Cleaves won its hallowed New Folk award in 1992. Hes doubled down ever since with literate story songs exponentially more mature and meaningful.Consider one other new high water mark. But they figured it out/And shipped the elbow grease/Down to Mexico/And off to the Chinese, Cleaves sings on the haunting meditation Rust Belt Fields. And I learned a little something 'bout how things are/No one remembers your name just for working hard. Childhood friend Rod Picott co-wrote those potent lines – the duo has split pages on several indelible blue-collar vignettes over the years (Broke Down, Sinners Prayer, Bring It On, Black T-shirt). Slaid is my favorite co-writer, says Picott, who also co-wrote the new albums standout Welding Burns. Hes a smart writer with a gift for wringing the most out of a melody. Slaid understands that the song has to rule. He's patient and unwavering in his pursuit of the best. Cleaves humbly accepts the praise. Despite the odds, through persistence and good fortune I've carved out a niche for myself, he says. You could say I have a Whim of Iron."

Finding High Speed Internet Near Champaign

Not that long ago, I bought a new house, and signed up for internet. Since getting my internet connection, I have not been very happy with the speed of the internet. I guess there are too many devices on my home network, for this connection speed to be acceptable. But it takes way too long to open a website, and I want to get some information on Champaign high speed internet deals to see if there are any good deals that might be available to me.

I really do not want to have to spend more than necessary on an internet connection, but it is not going to work with my current connection. It is just too slow, and my whole family hates it. My kids complain on a daily basis about the speed of the Internet, and it is getting to the point where there complaints are starting to drive me a little bit crazy. And I really need to hold onto my sanity, because I have a very stressful job.

So I guess that I do not have any other choice, than to try to upgrade my internet connection, and see if that will help to eliminate the problems that I am currently facing with slow Internet. I have not had internet this slow since I had a dial-up modem in my house, and had to listen to a minute of annoying computer noises before I was connected to the Internet. I am glad that those days are gone, and it almost seems comical that you actually had to listen to the modem noises. I guess that somebody thought it was a good idea to make people listen to annoying noises while they connected to the net. I would get a fiber optic connection, if I could find one available.

The Gift of a Memory

All year long I have been looking forward to Summer so I can finally take the vacation that I’ve been dreaming of for months! Ever since I was a child I’ve wanted the chance to visit Malaysia. But growing up with very little money our family wasn’t able to take vacations – unlike a lot of the parents of kids that I was around, my parents had to hold down two jobs each just to be able to afford the school I was in. But, finally, I’m riding in a car rental in Penang at nineteen years old with my parents accompanying me.

I knew they would want to come with me – my dad is half-Malaysian and has long desired to see his mother’s homeland for himself. When I was sixteen I made a promise that I would ensure that he would at least be able to say that he finally walked the land of his people so he might experience their legacy. If I could do one thing for my father, it would be this. My mother, for her sake, was simply happy that she was able to be with us on this wonderful experience. It’s not often a child has the means to give such a gift to their parents.

I worked all throughout high school at UPS while making some side cash online. I didn’t buy a car because of this; it was that important to me. While the rest of my friends were cashing in on getting some wheels, I was cashing in a on promise that needed be fulfilled. They wanted material goods, I wanted memories that would stick with my family and I forever. I know that sounds arrogant but it’s my philosophy that memories are infinitely more valuable than anything we can buy.

Going Back to School for an MBA

Personal education is not something that we should do without. For years I have been self-focused on my own personal need to educate myself; that doesn’t mean I would always have to settle with going to University and paying a great deal of money in order to find knowledge but it does mean that I often have to work that much harder to gain the knowledge I wish to possess. With help from programs like the Singapore MBA, I can easily work toward these goals from home without having to pay so much out of pocket that I taken on the burden of debt.

Debt is going to be end of student loans. With the amount of students finding themselves unable to pay back their loans across the globe (at least those countries who actually force their citizens to pay for a higher education), the burden of debt falls back onto the banks and the government assistance programs which supply the money to these individuals. I was in such a state myself when I was younger and if it had not been for the help of generous family members, I would have never been capable of paying back what I owed.

Instead, I now use CourseA.org, Khan Academy and P2PU to help me fill out the gaps in the things that I have an interest in learning. That was my largest complaint against attending University; the inability to attend the courses and classes that I wanted to because of money. Money should never stand in the way of education. Money should not control how education is designed. Knowledge and education is far too important of a human necessity for us to sell it off to universities or corporations who see nothing but the skills associated a paper degree that you’ve paid $50,000.

Kicking off the Depression to Embrace the Gym

With weeks of not hitting the gym building up, I started to sneak back into the gym despite my injury. It might have just been the presence of the place with that faint hint of sweat, musk and the overuse of cleaning products on worn and leathery equipment benches, but I felt better the moment that I stepped inside. For someone like me, I need my daily dose of energy through working out. As soon as I start to lose my flow, I get right into a funk. With some test-o-boost as a quick starter. I worked my way into simple routines.
