A leopard cannot change its spots.
  • Gift giving is never easy. With Christmas already knocking at the door it’s time for another month or two of anxiety and stress as we scramble about buying one another gifts. As people, we’re amazing at giving gifts. It really is easy to give something to someone that we know well. Receiving them becomes harder and buying them for those we care for but wanting to give the perfect gift becomes even harder when we want to convey the right sort of message through it. For my mom I bought curly clip in hair extensions since she’s all about wigs and the like these days.

    It’s amazing how much energy and thought that we put into a gift. Continue Reading »

    My wife wanted to redo the kitchen when we first bought our house nearly 12 years ago. It was functional, but it was also very ugly. The farmer who had built his own cabinets did not care about matching colors or materials, and it was just an eyesore. Unfortunately, we were not able to do it because we had some unexpected financial issues come up. I was able to paint the cupboards, but it was not until just a few months ago that I was able to hire a company that does kitchen remodeling in Bergen County NJ. Continue Reading »

    We moved to the nice apartments at Creeks on Kirk after we got married. We got married while still in college. We were both still living at our parent’s homes when we got married. Our first night not living in the homes where we grew up was our wedding night we spent in our new apartment. We put off the honeymoon for three months so we could get settled into our new home. It was great! There was not one downside to our new apartment living. We had everything we wanted without the responsibility of maintenance that would come if we had chosen to get a mortgage instead of living in an apartment.

    We really like our place. We set it up before we got married. We picked out every piece of furniture and arranged every spot where things would go on our own. Housewarming gifts, bridal shower gifts and wedding gifts pretty much furnished our new place. We did not have to put out any money except for the furniture. Continue Reading »

    When it comes to industry equipment, it can often be hard to figure out the right equipment supplier to use. One piece of hardware can be a huge difference if it is important to the overall process, so the quality and performance of each piece is nothing to overlook. Of course from the start of the process it is often hard to get a clear picture of exactly what is going on, since many products will make claims that do not stay true through the life of the product. For example, food packaging machines can slow down or speed up many companies drastically, but finding the right machine for the right price is no easy task.

    Of course the most surefire way to ensure that your company gets the right hardware and never has to worry is sticking with a company that has proven their reliability. Many businesses will try to cut corners or find ways to save money, but this often comes at the expense of customers who do not know. Continue Reading »

    I have just purchased a young horse, that has a good pedigree, and I think that it could grow up to be a champion racing horse one day. I want to find a trainer of race horses, so that it can be trained to be in races from an early age, and hopefully, become the champion that I think it can become one day.

    I spent a lot of time looking at different lineages, before deciding to buy this horse. I really like the pedigree of both its mother, and its father. My wife was trying to get me to purchase a different horse, but her reasons for wanting the other horse were kind of silly in my estimation. Continue Reading »

    My aunt raised me after my mother died when I was just a young girl. She has done everything possible so I can still feel a connection to my mother, and I will love her forever for that. One of the things that she did was keep my mother’s collection of vintage jewellery to give to me once I was old enough to appreciate the pieces. Not only did I fall in love with them, but I also wanted to add to the collection so I could pass it down to my own daughters one day.

    My aunt and I loved to find new outlets for my jewellery collection, and that is why I was so excited when I found a new company online. They have been in business for a while, but they were new to me. Continue Reading »

    When someone stole my laptop, I couldn't access anything on my hard drive. I was at a coffee shop and went to the bathroom for a quick second. I thought I was being smart by putting a lock anchor around the laptop, but the thief was able to cut through that, and took the laptop, leaving behind the lock anchor. No one in the shop saw him do it. The shop had to look at their security footage and I gave the police my serial number. I had tracking software where you can click and see by yourself where your computer is going when someone is using it over the Internet.

    The thief wiped my hard drive clean, but before he did that, the tracking software was able to give the police an idea of where the laptop was at the time. Using the footage, the serial number, and the software, the police were able to track the thief down and arrest him. They gave me my laptop back, but since the hard drive was wiped, there was nothing left on it. The thief even made sure to wipe the drive multiple times to make sure that nothing was left behind.

    I kept all of my important documents backed up on an external drive, so I had no problem with them. My main problem came from a particular invoice template that was stored on the laptop. I used that template all the time, and now it is gone permanently. I had to find a replacement template from a website to use in its place. The new template actually looks better than the old one, and actually is easier to fill out. I guess in that regard, the thief did me a favor, but I still resent him for stealing my laptop in the first place.
