Delayed Returns

Posted July 25th, 2015 by Jason

I generally don’t return the things I buy. Most of the time it’s simply easier to either throw it out, give it away, or sell it on the internet. But this Christmas I received something too valuable to discard and too obscure to sell off: a ceramic owl. Not knowing where it came from or what to do with it, I called around to local antique and collectible shops to no avail. Towards the end I was prepared to give in to my desire to let the owl have an “accident” when I received a call from a store specializing in ceramic figurines. Apparently word had gotten around that I was looking to discreetly return a ceramic owl and his invoice books revealed my aunt had made just such a purchase. Of course he was willing to accept the return without a receipt, so long as I was willing to only recoup half the value. Not bad, all things considered.

Kitchen Extravaganza

Posted June 23rd, 2015 by Jason

Recently me and my husband moved to a new home that needed a few touch ups and a major renovation in the kitchen. This room wasn’t as much a concern for my husband as it was for me, so he left the decision making up to me. I made sure to take my time and research and develop as many possible ideas on what could be done to optimize our finances and style choices. The kitchen had this amazing window in it that was the main feature of the room and I really wanted this area to stand out. As soon as you walked in this was the first thing you noticed. I had decided upon the color scheme, appliances, and counter tops but I was having a hard time finding some shutters Manchester. After much searching though I found the perfect ones and they really completed the room.

Last weekend was my friend’s long-awaited wedding. She was Bridezilla; everything had to be big, it had to be perfect. As Maid of Honor, it was my job to ensure it was just that.

My gift was a customized wedding fireworks displays, the kind that explode as hearts and rings. Unfortunately, I hadn’t considered my Millie’s reaction to the explosions, an apocalyptic experience even for a Doberman like her. Millie pushed through the crowd and, as large dogs often do, miscalculated her size, hurling the bride into a table with shining candles. It seems her dress, for all it had cost, was highly flammable. The groom threw her, arms flailing, dress ablaze, into the pool.

Unsurprisingly, the reception ended early and the wedding night was spent in the hospital. Worst of all, no one saw my fireworks finale: “May the fire of your passion never cease.”

Texas Size Heart

The little puppy was out by his house again. Johnny had see the tiny little animal running around with a big dog for a while. The little pup looked hungry, and seemed to be losing weight every time Johnny saw it. One day, Johnny managed to coax it to him. It was so friendly, licking his face right away. He called his brother over to look at it. His brother said he knew someone that could keep the little puppy, and it would never go hungry again. He picked up his phone, and dialed a woman named Rebecca. She got there quickly, and brought some food and water with her. She left her truck running with the air conditioning Manchester on. They handed her the puppy, and she quickly checked it for any injuries, and then put it in a carrier with the food and water. As she pulled away, Johnny’s brother told him how Rebecca had saved many animals, paying for their medical treatment with her own money. Johnny looked at him and said, “She must surely have a heart the size of Texas”.

Can Happen to Anyone

Susie had been playing outside in the back yard one afternoon with a few of her friends. She had not been feeling well all day, but she was having so much fun she did not want to ruin their day.

After her friends had left Susie laid down on her bed and refused any supper. Her temperature rose dangerously high, and she was taken to the hospital. She was given medication, and her temperature went down, but she had to stay in the hospital for several days for observation. Having the high temperature did have an affect on Susie’s hearing, and she had to start wearing hearing aids Manchester in both ears. They were very small and were not noticed by her friends. Now she had something in common with her grandparents, and they were happy to help her out with them.

Perfect Way to Reduce Summer Energy Costs

Posted May 15th, 2015 by Jason

We love the fact that we added central air conditioning to our home to make our lives much more comfortable, especially since summers are so hot and humid here in the South. But we just weren’t prepared for our energy bills to skyrocket so high. Then my husband and I did our own home energy audit to see what we could be doing differently in order to enjoy our air conditioning without going broke. We noticed that the way our house was positioned, we were getting full sunlight throughout most of the day streaming into several of our rooms, making the indoor temperature even higher than usual, causing our air conditioning system to really work overtime. I saw an ad in the newspaper touting the benefits of installing blinds Manchester as one way to control energy costs in a household. Ever since installing them, our energy bills have become more manageable.

Finding The Best

After I built my first website I discovered I needed a good web design agency, but I had no way of knowing how to pick one. So here I am to tell you part of what I learned. First I discovered I needed to clarify what it was I wanted the site to do. Did I want it to be an ecommerce site or strictly informational? Next I started my research, I looked for a company that had a proven record of understanding me. Age of the company didn’t matter. Then I made certain that the content was in line with the type of website I had picked out. Communication with the website design company was instrumental in ensuring I was happy with what I got. Lastly I double checked the site to be sure everything was working properly. These quick easy steps will help for any website.

Best Date Ever

Posted April 21st, 2015 by Jason

It had been a while since I have been on a date. I finally got to go on a date last week. It was amazing. I had been chatting online with this guy, and we finally decided to meet. We met at one of my favorite restaurants. He presented me with flowers Harrogate,which is something that I never received on the first date.

After a great dinner, we took a stroll around the park. We talked for two hours about life and the things that we wanted in a relationship. I felt an instant connection with him. It was unlike anything I had ever felt before. Before we went home, we agreed that we would meet again in the near future. We will be going out again this weekend, and I cannot wait.
