My wife and I used to only think about ourselves when it came to environmental issues. When our son got passionate about being green, he really showed us the error of our ways. We now do our part to help the planet in any way that we can, and it has benefited us in a lot of ways. Some of those ways may seem silly to others, but we don’t worry about that. For instance, instead of using the electric clothes dryer for every single load of laundry, we now use a clothes line outside for the majority of our laundered items.
There are still some things we will use the electric dryer for, but we purchased an energy saving dryer for those loads to minimize the environmental impact. We do limit ourselves in using it though, because there is just something really refreshing about wearing clothes and using linens that have been dried outdoors. I purchased a circular clothes line from a reputable company online, and it has been perfect for us. Continue reading
I love my girlfriend Jia. We have been together for four year. She is so fine. She is Chinese and 24 years of age. We both met in college. We had our first date in the school cafeteria. I was struggling for money during my college years. Our date was cheap, but romantic. I fell in love with her at first sight. I really want to make her my wife one day. Last week, a violent storm came through our city. A tree fell on top of Jia’s house. She called a tree service in Brooklyn NY. They moved the tree, but the damage had been done. I was happy that my girlfriend was not hurt, but her home was damaged.
My girlfriend told me that it would be a while before the damage to her home was fixed. Jia was practically homeless. her family was not near her. Continue reading
When my daughters started using my desktop computer more for their schoolwork, I decided that it was time that they each had their own laptop. They are good kids, and they never ask for anything. I knew that getting just one laptop to share would be good from their perspective, but I wanted to give them each a laptop so they could customize them how they wanted. I also knew that if I wanted until the Cyber Monday electronic sales started, that I would be able to get a really good deal on two laptops.
I decided last night to look online to see if I could find if there were any sneak peeks or anything for Cyber Monday, and I was surprised to find a website that has all of the latest news on 2015 Cyber Monday. Continue reading
We are trying to make a new product at the company that I work for and to do so we are going to need to enlist the help of another company that has some specialization in working with metal. What we need is to get some metal laser cutting services for our new product and we want to set up a contract that is going to be beneficial for both parties, or as beneficial for both parties as possible.
I am not sure when we will be able to start making this new product and offering it for sale, but it something we have had on the drawing board for awhile, but it has not gotten that far just because we will not be able to completely make the product in-house. That has been a major hindrance towards getting this done, because there are worries that it will not be very cost effective to outsource the metal cutting to another company.
I guess that I am going to try to figure out this contract, and try to get into contact with at least a couple of companies that are able to do this type of work, so that I can see how much it is going to cost for this collaboration. Hopefully, the services we will need will not cost that much, but as of now, I really have no idea, and no way of knowing how much they are going to cost. I would like to figure it out as soon as possible though because I have to report back to my boss on what I find. It is important that he stays updated with this whole process and he knows what is going on. I kind of wish he would just do the negotiations himself, but it is my duty for now.
Our garage would have a big wet spot after a heavy rain. They resurfaced the alley that our driveway connects to, and the runoff during a heavy rain rushes back toward the door. I needed to call a garage repair service to see if they could do something about how the garage doors seal against the concrete of the floor of the garage. It was so bad that I actually had a big squeegee to push the water out of the garage. We could not store anything on the floor. The whole floor would be wet from wall to wall.
I was concerned that we would not be able to seal the doors good enough to resist the water that would splash up against it. It was only during very heavy rains that it happened. I could have had drains installed, but that would have been a big expense. The place that provides garage repair service was able to put in new seals at the bottoms of the doors that really blocked the water. Continue reading
When I joined the Army, I thought I was in pretty good shape. After all, I fit into a size two jeans, and I wore tops that were extra small or small at the very most. But I learned that I was not in great shape at all when I went to basic training. I came out of there with muscles where I did not even know I should have them! So, when I learned that you could join a workout program based on Navy Seal training last week, I immediately wanted to try it.
When I left the military, I quickly lost most of the muscles that I had built up while in service. I really enjoyed the daily workouts. Continue reading
When I bought a large farmhouse in the middle of a very rural area, I knew that I had the best of both worlds. I had my country setting, but anything I could need was less than a 15 minute drive away. The only thing I was not sure about was my DirecTV availability because of all the trees that were around my house. I know that there has to be a clear line of sight, which I had no idea if I had or not, but I did get encouraged when I saw satellite dishes sprinkled up and down the road I live on.
I went online and put in my address, and it showed that I was eligible for DirecTV in my location. I was so happy because even though cable was definitely available in this area, I knew I would only be truly happy with DirecTV for a number of reasons. Continue reading
My husband was hired as the lead pastor of a large local church. We had gone from a congregation of dozens to one of hundreds seemingly overnight, and we both knew that we had our work cut out for us. We moved into the parsonage a couple of weeks before he was to have his first sermon, which gave us time to get everything set up. One thing that I wanted to do was get some DirecTV Internet information. We already knew that we were going to subscribe to a DirecTV programming plan because they have a large variety of religious programming, but we hadn’t decided on an Internet provider yet.

Jeremy Glen Castle, who is an American country music singer and songwriter, was raised in Blanchard, Oklahoma. He was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on August 2, 1974. He grew up listening to the sound of traditional artists including George Jones, Merle Haggard, and George Jones raised in Blanchard. Castle learnt to play the guitar from Conway Twitty’s lead guitarist Charlie Archer.
While he was a college student at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, Oklahoma and playing football, he began writing music and performing. In 1997, Castle graduated from East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma.
During the 1990s, Castle started performing in his home state and Missouri, Tennessee, as well as Texas. He sang in some places s like the renowned Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa, Diamond Ballroom in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma’s former famous saloon-dancehall Tumbleweed’s in Stillwater. The other places he sang in include Nashville establishments like the Bluebird Café, the popular Billy Bob’s Texas in Fort Worth. The world famous Tootsies Orchid Lounge, the historic Gruene Hall in Gruene, Texas and Stubbs B-B-Q in Austin. He also performed at Branson spots like the former Barbara Fairchild Theater.
KKNG 93.3 FM on-air personality James Ayers coined Jeremy Castle the nickname “The Singing Fireman”. He was the first person to play castle’s tune titled “Take My Ring Off Your Finger” in 1999. Castle was later to release an album consisting of 17 songs and titled For A While in 2002.
During an interview when asked how he got started as a country music singer, and what led to his music career, Castle explained how he learned to play guitar and learned to pen songs. He then started to sing the songs he wrote, and as time passed, one thing led to another. Also, things were happening in life.
He believed that if he hadn’t learned to play guitar, he wouldn’t have been able to write his songs. Besides, if he didn’t have his songs to sing, then he probably would never have sung. Had he not become a firefighter, maybe he would not have had the time to record and perform and still have much time with his wife and kids. He said that he enjoyed doing all these things. As a matter of fact, things have just worked out for him in a way that has allowed him to write and sang songs.
Asked what his favorite music genre is, Castle said the country is his favorite. He disclosed that he didn’t however like most of the stuff on the radio. He said he adores classic country and usually listens to CDs of old music which probably most people don’t even listen to anymore.
Asked whether he believes that there is a lot of music that doesn’t receive recognition, he replied in the affirmative. He said it was quite hard for independent artists to get exposure. Getting airplay is difficult, if not impossible unless you are not with a major record label. He lamented that there were lots of truly good artists who go unheard. According to Castle, that was one of the reasons why people will never get to hear some of the really good music out there.
