My Back Has Gone out Again

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

I spent about fifteen minutes trying to get out of my bed the other morning. I knew at once that it was something I had dealt with before. In essence I have been dealing with on and off back issues for close to fifteen years. The original problem started back when I used to live my life in a really hard way, which is to say I drank a lot and hung out with other guys who partied all the time. The first time I went to see a Cumming chiropractor. I was living in the suburbs of Atlanta GA and it was not that long after I had graduated from college. At any rate it was a simple thing. I laid down on the table and the guy started to move things around in my back. If I really known what he was going to do, then I would have been scared. If it all goes to plan, there is nothing to worry about. (more…)

A Distracted Driver Caused My Injuries

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

When I was involved in an accident a couple of years ago, I didn’t even think about hiring an auto accident attorney in Sacramento at first. The facts of the accident were so cut and dried that I didn’t think I needed one. However, when the insurance company offered me a settlement that barely covered my lost wages from it, I knew I needed some help. It was not that I was being greedy, because that was the furthest thought from my mind. I just knew that I had a long road ahead of me, and that settlement offer was not taking that into account.

I was not even sure if I would be able to go back to work yet. I was still in physical therapy trying to regain the strength in both of my arms as well as my right leg. (more…)

My Uncle is Now a Believer in Chiropractic Care

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

My uncle is a foreman for a construction crew. Some might think that his job is easier since he just oversees a bunch of workers, but I think he works harder than any two of his workers put together. There used to be some nights when he would come home so sore that he didn’t even want to eat dinner. He would soak in the tub for a bit, then he would usually lay down with a heating pad. That all changed when I convinced him to visit a chiropractor in Campbell CA.

He honestly had no desire to see this type of doctor, but that was just because he didn’t know anything about them. He did not realize that they go to school for many years and actually take a lot of classes that primary care physicians must take. (more…)

We Needed to Make Sure We Got Help Immediately

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017

We have a family with many hunters in it. When they visit, they often bring some of the meat from their hunts. So when our extra freezer stopped working it was imperative that we get some major appliance repair in Sacramento to get the freezer working again. We have a lot of venison and wild boar that would go to waste if we didn’t get it working in time. We could not afford to buy a new one anytime soon, and we hoped that it would not come down to that in the end.

While trying to work on the freezer himself, my husband ended up breaking something inside the freezer. That was when I told him that we needed to get someone who really knew what they were doing to fix it before he ended up breaking something permanently. (more…)

My Chiropractor is Helping to Keep Me on the Golf Course

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017

I like golfing. I really like it. I have played golf since I was about 12, and that was 50 years ago. I used to be able to do 36 holes and then go to work at my full time job. Now that I am retired, I want to play all of the time. However, I am not quite up to 36 holes two times per week. I tried that a couple of weeks ago and needed my chiropractor in Mesa to fix my back so I could at least golf nine holes in a couple of days.

I really wore myself out in the heat and on that back nine twice in one day. I was competing against my family. My wife, daughter and our two daughters-in-law played 18 holes. Then my sons challenged me to another 18 while the girls all stayed back at the clubhouse for massages, mani-pedis and more. By the time dinner rolled around, my back was hurting. I really threw something out in my upper back when I was trying to get out from behind a tree on that doglegged par 5 on the back nine. (more…)

A Good Cure for Whiplash

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017

I employed the services of a San Jose chiropractor after an auto accident left me with a bad case of whiplash. I always thought that condition was sort of a fancy name for pulled muscles in your neck when your head is suddenly moved forwards or backwards with great force. I recently suffered whiplash when I was sitting at a stop sign and a teenager who was paying more attention to their phone than the road plowed into my car. Sure enough my head went forwards and backwards with force and the pain in my neck set in immediately.

It was only later that I learned whiplash can be a lot more than a few strained muscles. Some people can suffer excruciating headaches and nerve pain. The unlucky people can have chronic neck pain for months or even years afterwards. I know the headaches I was having were pretty intense, but the neck pain was worse and it didn’t feel like a pulled muscle. It felt like serious nerve pain. After it didn’t vanish in a couple of weeks, my wife went online and found a chiropractor clinic and made an appointment because something had to be done. (more…)

I Was Liking the New Innovative Architectural Design of the 12 on Shan Condo in Singapore

Saturday, December 17th, 2016

I grew up in District 12, and still enjoy living here. That is why when a condo project was announced for 12 On Shan, I had to take a closer look. Condos here in Singapore are structures that share ownership among the condo owners. What you do with your interior space, as far as customization goes, is up to the individual condo owner. However, there are certain rules for what you can and cannot do. If you own a condo, you will have to be the one who pays to renovate and repair its interior as the years go on. The exterior is a shared expense because all of the condo owners own the building.

I wanted to live at a property that was going to be well maintained. (more…)

Good Enough to Do Taxes Professionally

Thursday, December 15th, 2016

A relative of mine asked me to help her file her taxes, since I’m pretty good at math and have done it before with my own taxes. She said that I was so good that I should probably start my own business doing it. I didn’t think I was that good, but apparently she did, so I started thinking more about her idea. I started making plan for an office in my home where I could work from, and setting up a fax machine for important documents. I found a way to get some help from Keystone Tax Solutions after doing some research on the Internet.

Gone are the days of doing taxes on traditional paper. (more…)

Dad and Mom Gave Me a Piece of Property Recently

Friday, December 9th, 2016

My parents have a lot of money, and they have a lot of property located around our country town. When they grew older, they told my siblings and I that they wanted to give some of it to us before they pass away one day in the future. I have wanted my own small farm, so that made me really happy. They had to get a living trust attorney in Orange County to get all the paperwork straightened out since the property is in their trust. Dad says that they needed to do things the right way so that my siblings and I would not fight over property one day when they passed away. It’s scary to think that could ever even happen with my brothers and sisters.

My parents are old enough that they have seen quite a number of our relatives and friends pass away over the years. They have seen siblings fight over what they think they should get. It breaks apart families and really tears people apart. (more…)

An Easy Pay Stub Maker

Wednesday, October 5th, 2016

I knew that I needed to have some work done at my house, but I was not sure who to hire for it. There was a local handyman who gave me a really good quote for the work that I needed done, and he seemed to have the same qualifications as a professional. I decided to go ahead and use his services, which meant that I had to find a paystub maker online. He had told me that I could just pay him in cash, but I have never been the type to do something like that.

Not only do I want proof that I paid him, but I also wanted it all spelled out on a professional document. (more…)

My Sister is Enjoying Her Special Day

Sunday, September 25th, 2016

My older sister Marie is complete diva. Even when we were little kids, she was always the boss. She always had to have everything done her way. As an adult, she has not changed. She runs a very successful business and calls the shots. I work as a cosmetologist and I love it. My sister told me that she was getting married and wanted me to do her makeup. She wanted eyebrow embroidery for her wedding. I agreed to take on the task at hand.

Life as a male cosmetologist has not always been easy for me. My father did not understand nor support my career decision. He did not think that doing makeup was a suitable job for a man. (more…)

A School Website Filled with Great Info

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

I wanted to learn more information about a visual communication course that I had heard the Orita Sinclair school had. I knew the best way was just to go to the website and find out the info I wanted from there. I was not sure what I was expecting when I did this, but it was not what I found. There was so much information there about the course that I wanted to take that it took me quite a while to read it all. That is a good thing though because I would much rather have all the information in one spot like this than have to go search for it in different places.

The entire course syllabus was there along with descriptions of all the different modules. (more…)

Plans for a Grand Design

Thursday, June 2nd, 2016

For a garden that I was planning for my home, I had been working with one of my friends to create the plans. He came up with a slab design to make the garden look like some kind of beautiful Roman dream. My friend had been skilled in design for many years because he took courses on it in college. I was focused on computer programming, which comes in handy for him when he wants someone to make a website for him or create an app that will be usable by his customers. We plan to start construction of the garden during the summer.

The garden will have an area for growing flowers and food, and also an area that will house a small pond. (more…)

Started to Go Hunting with a 12 Gauge

Tuesday, May 31st, 2016

Like everyone else I used to go hunting with a bolt action hunting rifle, a Marlin 30 30. I had a scope on it, but I came to realize that the way that I am hunting is not really going to make that all that advantageous. Out in the Western states they have a lot of wide open spaces and some of the time they will shoot at elk from half a mile away. Around here you are going to be a lot closer. I got a good 12 gauge and put a slip on recoil pad on the stock. Of course it is going to kick very little when you load it up with bird shot, but you are going to really appreciate that recoil pad when you are using double ought buck shot and deer slugs. That is how I am loading it up, first one and then the other. (more…)

Being Unique in an Affordable Way Was Important at My Wedding

Sunday, May 22nd, 2016

I always loved wedding magazines. It seems that most females seem to take an interest in them as soon as they get engaged, but I was reading these types of magazines long before I even knew the man that I became engaged to. I knew that I wanted to have a unique wedding, and I wanted to do it in a way that would be affordable. Gathering ideas early on helped me with that. One thing that really surprised my guests was the feather bow tie that my new husband wore with his tuxedo. It really stood out and everyone wanted to know where it came from.

My husband was a big bird lover. He had two parrots of his own, and when he was growing up, his parents had a peacock that wandered freely around their fenced in back yard. (more…)

Here is a Crime, but Who is the Real Criminal?

Monday, May 16th, 2016

I saw on the news that my neighbor had been arrested. He is in serious trouble for assaulting another neighbor. The news makes it look like my neighbor is the bad guy. The rest of us around here know that is not the case. The other neighbor has been trouble for everyone for a long time. He is not a nice guy at all. Each one of us has been the victim of one of his verbal attacks or threats. I helped my neighbor contact a criminal law firm in Sydney. The real bad guy has never been arrested because he has a lot of money and friends in positions of power. My neighbor just responded to a threat.

The man was accosting my neighbor with a verbal attack. He had a golf club in his hand. When he raised it like he was going to hit my neighbor, he got his hat handed to him so to speak. The injuries made it a more serious crime, and there were no witnesses. (more…)

Seeing What Can’t Be Seen

Thursday, May 12th, 2016

Years ago, my idea of having a security system was buying a few door alarms from the local hardware store and sticking them on the wall. I never had a burglar to test out these alarms, but if one did come, the alarms wouldn’t have really done much. They would have made a loud sound, but that’s about it. The police wouldn’t have been called, the burglar wouldn’t have been captured on film, and if he was brazen enough, he would have just broken the alarms. I needed to be safer, so I got a home security audit to give me something better.

I upgraded to a full system with an alarm, security box that arms and disarms the alarm, smoke and heat detectors, window locks, and cameras to monitor every inch of the outside of my home. (more…)

Imagine Going to Jail but Not Being Guilty of a Crime

Saturday, May 7th, 2016

Not everyone that is accused of a crime is guilty. Anyone can get railroaded into prison. The system we have here in America is a decent one. I’d say it is better than anywhere else. However, we all know that things can happen that can get the full weight of the law down on you even if you did not commit a crime. Look at how many people have been freed from prison because DNA evidence proves they are not guilty. Strong defense teams, such as, www.losangelescriminaldefenseattorney.lawyer, could make the difference between prison and freedom.

The thing about being accused is that even though the law says innocent until proven guilty, you know that people see you as being guilty even if they prove you innocent. People do not seem to be wired to think not guilty. If you are accused, you must have done something to get accused, so you should go to jail for whatever that something is. (more…)

Dog Scales for Easy Weighing

Tuesday, April 19th, 2016

I am raising a litter of puppies that I would like to sell at some point in the future. They are cute and it is going to be hard to let go of the little scamps, but at the same time, there is no way that I’d be able to keep all of these dogs over the long term anyway. Once they get bigger, it is going to be hard to handle them all. I am hoping to buy a dog scale so that I can weigh the dogs as they grow, and keep track of how they progress in putting on weight and their growth in general. I want to do that to make sure that they are healthy and growing at a normal rate.

Additionally, I think it should be helpful in trying to figure out if I should adjust their diets and things like that. I have never raised a litter of puppies before, and since I am going to try to sell them once they are old enough to sell, it makes a lot of sense to me that I would try to do things right, and make sure that everything is going according to the plan. Hence my need for a dog scale to be ab,le to weigh them. I have never attempted to purchase anything like this before, but I am sure that they make scales that are designed to be easy to use for pet owners.

I really want something that is going to be easy, where the dog could just walk on it, and i wouldn’t have to do anything awkward, like picking it up and putting it on a scale, and then making sure that it stays there long enough to get the measurement. Something designed for the purpose would definitely be best.

My Hair Gives Me New Self Confidence

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015

I have really fine hair, which can be a pain in the neck to style at times. Thick hair is easier to manipulate into different styles, but thin hair tends to fly away with most styles. I thought that I was destined to just a couple of different and very plain hair styles because of this, but I learned that a lot of women with beautiful hair are actually wearing hair extensions. That gave me such hope, and I went to a website that has all kinds of different extensions, like the 4C hair extensions that I bought. (more…)
