When my spouse asked me if I wanted to get into the pot-selling business with him, I laughed and dismissed his question at first. He told me that he wasn’t joking, and said that he had been thinking about it and hoped that the two of us could own and run a dispensary together now that it is legal to do. I was thinking about the conversation while watching a demonstration yesterday to learn about a new marijuana trimming machine that I was thinking of purchasing for our business. Continue reading Our Country is Rapidly Becoming More Progressive
I used to work from home, which counted as self employment. When I would file my taxes, I could do it online for free at a particular website because I was under the income limit and age for their requirements. Since then, I’ve gotten a job outside of home and don’t have to deal with self employment forms like schedule SE anymore. This came with a downside of not being able to file for free because I made enough money to pass the income limit. Instead, I turned to tax software by Keystone Tax Solutions to file for federal and state taxes.
Although I could have used the website I was using before to file, I just didn’t like the restrictions they had in place and didn’t want to run into anymore in the future. Continue reading Ditching the Restrictions on Tax Prep
I went to college to learn chemistry. I have worked for industrial plants and pharmaceutical companies as a chemist. Most of that work is monitoring or confirming what someone else has already made. I wanted to be more hands-on in making something that would help people. So, I came up with the idea of an organic white paint that did not present a volatile organic compound risk and was very earth-friendly. I sourced raw chemicals, bought a volumetric filling machine and paint cans and had a side business.
The paint was expensive to produce, so I knew it was a niche operation. Continue reading A Side Business Selling a Product That Requires Commercial Equipment to Prepare and Package
As a young person, I wasn’t really concerned with anything outside of myself. I did not know that was a problem. As I grew older I realized that about myself, and I started working for the greater good and spent less time on myself. I now help people in the community by bringing issues to the forefront with meetings, protests, fliers and petitions. I really like how Singapore door to door flyer distribution helps me to get info out to the people who really need it, and it helps them to learn about different events or topics that they might not otherwise have known about.
We have a lot of services in the area, that not everyone knows about. Continue reading I Help People Learn About What They Need in Life
I fell down while walking down the street. It was quite embarrassing because I didn’t even trip over anything other than my own feet. There was a tiny bump in the sidewalk that I feel might have been the cause, but no one else seemed to have a problem with it. Anyway, I was in a lot of pain because I used both arms to catch myself as I fell forward. I didn’t break any bones, but I was certainly sore enough from this to visit a chiropractor in Peoria a few days after the accident.
I was going to go to my regular doctor, but I changed my mind because of where the pain was located. I figured that my doctor would just want me to go to the hospital and have X-rays done, but I could tell that nothing was broken. Continue reading I Had Torn Some Tissue
I think that many people are familiar with the concept of there being a lot of great plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills. When I think of Beverly Hills, I immediately think about my wonderful chiropractor, who I would consider to be the best Beverly Hills chiropractor. I think that if people focus as much energy and attention on their backs as they do their outward appearance, people living in Beverly Hills would have the best posture in the world. I’m a huge proponent of visiting the chiropractor regularly, and I tell all my friends that they really should schedule a visit.
Last time I was discussing my back with my friends, I mentioned the fact that not only did my chiropractor provide me with my regular adjustments, but he also provided me with a massage. They gave me a funny look, so I decided to clarify my statement. I don’t think a lot of people know this, but massage and basic chiropractic care go hand-in-hand. Being able to have a massage after traditional treatment is a bonus for your muscles. Continue reading Getting a Massage from My Chiropractor
Back problems run in my family. You should hear the war stories of back pain when we get together for a family reunion or at Thanksgiving dinner. Every aunt, uncle, grandparent, parent and cousin has a story of aching backs. I never bought into it as a kid, but in my twenties my back really started to bother me. Mine was in my neck and shoulders. It was so bad that my posture was changing. I had all kinds of tests, and I was told that there was little that showed up as damage. A chiropractor in Redding is who finally got me relief. My back bothered me so bad at times that I actually considered letting a surgeon look around to see if he could find something that was not showing up on MRIs and CT scans. Can you imagine that?
After a few weeks of adjustments and exercises tailored especially for me, my back feels tremendously better. In addition to being a family of aching backs, we are an eclectic bunch when it comes to careers. Continue reading My Family Issue with Chronic Back Pain Finally Got Around to Me
It is very possible to have a fantastic website with very little traffic. The reasoning makes sense too, when you learn about it. I knew that I needed to hire an Atlanta SEO consultant after a friend of mine explained why my website was failing so miserably even though it was really nice. He told me to picture myself owning a fantastic store that had great products at incredible prices. I would have some foot traffic because of word of mouth, but that would be it unless I advertised so others knew about it.
That made sense to me. If I had a brick and mortar business, I would need to take out advertisements. The way online business works is through search engine optimization though. Continue reading Why I Hired an SEO Expert
I love to run, but I don’t like running by myself. None of my friends or family members share my passion, but I was not about to let that stop me from enjoying myself with a running partner. I simply went to the local animal shelter and adopted a young black lab pup. She is actually about a year old, and she is quick! I knew that she would be the perfect companion for running, but I still had to buy a collar and leash for her. I decided to look at a waist belt dog leash after asking some people on a runner’s forum about the supplies needed for a dog on a running trail. Continue reading My Dog is My Running Partner
Prescription drug addiction is at an all-time high in our country and is spiraling out of control. It affects people from all walks of life. There is no textbook definition of those affected by this addiction. The good news is that there is credible help out there for those plagued by this addiction. I did a simple internet search for prescription drug detox for Florida and found a wonderful place that provides affordable detox in a tranquil setting. This place seems to be very successful in helping their patient fight and beat this addiction.
This is a subject that has affected my family personally. I have a stepbrother that is a flight instructor in the United States Army. Of course, being in the Army he is very disciplined. He served one tour in Afghanistan and one tour in Iraq. Continue reading Prescription Drug Detox for Florida is Helping People Reclaim Their Lives
Every year, I make the same resolution. I am going to lose weight, and I am going to keep it off. Even if I am able to manage the first, the second one always proves to be impossible. My downfall are foods like french fries and chicken wings. I love anything that is not good for me, which kind of presents a problem. When I first heard of a fryer that does not use oil, I was intrigued. I decided to read some Power Air Fryer XL reviews before even thinking about buying one, because it just seemed to be a contradiction.
I did not see how something that is supposed to be greasy and delicious could still be good if it was cooked by air rather than oil. Yes, it did sound like it would be a lot healthier, but it also sounded like it would taste like cardboard too. That is why I was really surprised when I read the reviews and saw how positive they all were. I even read reviews by a few people who were having the same problem that I was having at the time. Continue reading Eating Healthier Without Sacrificing Taste
I have had a personal Facebook account for nearly eight years, and I am an avid Twitter user. I just started using Instagram about a year ago, but I really like it too. These are just three of the social media sites that I use to keep up with my friends and family as well as brands that I enjoy. That is why I wanted to find a company that handles social media marketing for Walnut Creek because I had no idea how to market my own brand. I saw the success that other companies were having, but I knew that it was much more involved other than just making a fun post on social media.
There had to be a way to get people to see the posts that I wanted to put, and that is where I was lacking in the appropriate skills. I wanted to learn about other kinds of marketing too. Continue reading I Needed Help Wtih Social Media Marketing
Young adult addiction treatment facilities really can help your daughter or your son beat an unhealthy addiction. My family recently went through a situation with my daughter, whose alcohol problem quickly became unmanageable after she went away to the university. College wasn’t the problem, however, as she had a problem throughout high school that my wife and I couldn’t prevent no matter what we tried. In a way I blame myself because I have always been a drinker and I think she picked up the habit from watching me crack open cold ones after work and on the weekends.
We caught her drinking several times throughout high school, and she threw a couple of parties at our home while we were away that required police intervention. Still, we just though (or maybe hoped) it was one of those youthful indulgences that would fade once she moved out and got on with her life. We certainly didn’t think it was chronic alcoholism. Continue reading They Got My Daughter off of the Sauce
I started to get into shooting and editing video footage. I use a drone for some fantastic aerial shots. I passed the Part 107 test to get a remote pilot certificate so that I could use the footage in any way I pleased. I could not afford to upgrade my computer for one that was already outfitted for video editing, so I looked for the best budget graphics card I could find. In order to see your effects and transitions rendered in high definition in full time, you need to offload a lot of the processing to a good graphics card. It makes for a much nicer video editing experience. Continue reading Why You Need Discrete Graphics if You Edit Video
Our teenage son was not happy that we would have to spend the next six months in Japan. I go where my company sends me, and my wife is a successful novelist. She can work anywhere in the world. Our son has been uprooted a couple of times and had enough of it. He had good friends back home and did not want to go to Japan. He was withdrawn for the first week until I suggested he attend a Niseko snowboard school. He had been wanting to take a short trip to Colorado to learn snowboarding, and Niseko actually had a really good snowboarding school staffed by instructors that speak several languages including our native English.
After learning all he could about snowboarding, he went on the slopes at every opportunity. We bought him a pass to the slopes for the season. At the end of the six months, he was in no hurry to go back home. He made some friends in Japan, and he was actually picking up a decent amount of the language. Of course, it was a girl who was fond of him that caused all of his present interest in Japanese language and culture. Before we left I sat down with him and had one of those dad kind of conversations. Continue reading Learning to See Opportunity when Given a Chane to See the World
With the global economy beginning roo finally improve, you might have to be asking yourself how much is copper a pound. With improved economies comes the development of the citizens lives. New housing, Nye cities, new technologies and improved utilities for most people. Every home it’s going to need wishing and plumbing in order for anyone who expects a modern home to be attractive for sale. With all that modern infrastructure comes a great deal of copper for the wording in telephone and other communication sis that will stretch across vast distances. This it’s why it’s important for every country to take a seat at the global table of trade in order to help all countries to develop themselves.
Trade it’s no longer a linear concept. It’s a global, multi lateral agreement between the nation’s of ride world in order to bring some modicum of posterity for all people. The more successful the nation the more m money it’s people have to spend and save. Continue reading The Demand of Economic Growth on Resources
Last time my car broke down I took it to the mechanic to get diagnosed. I drove in, and told the mechanic what happened, and the sound the vehicle had made right before it stopped working. He plugged the vehicle in to his computer, and within minutes, he was able to tell me what was wrong. It was a pretty amazing sight to see. I asked him what he used to diagnose my vehicle, and he said it was OBD software that told him exactly what was wrong. He told me that a lot of mechanics use it nowadays, and that I could even purchase it if I wanted to.
Before that day, I would have never thought of such a thing, but now more than ever I’m really interested in learning about how these things work. Continue reading How I Diagnosed My Car Problems
When my daughter asked me if I would be able to find a real paystub maker for her to teach her kids about their money, I was able to do even better than that. I found one that had everything she wanted in it, and it was inexpensive and very easy to use too. She gives her children 20 dollars every week, but she didn’t think they were appreciating it. That might seem like a high allowance, but it is actually not much compared to what my daughter makes in a year.
She wanted the kids to see what their allowance would look like if she took deductions out of it. She explained how her boss takes deductions from her own pay for various things like health insurance, taxes, life insurance, vision care, and more. She then explained how she does take deductions from them for things like doing their laundry, cooking their meals, transporting them to and from various school activities and so many other things. Continue reading Pay Stubs Proving Her Worth
I was not too worried about a few trees that were downed during a bad storm a few months ago. They were not close to the house, so I knew that I had time before I had to hire a company that does tree removal in Nassau County. I just did not have the money at the time because we were getting ready to go away on vacation, so I decided to put it off until we got back from the beach. As soon as we got home, that was the first thing on my list.
We have never had to have any trees removed before, so I asked my neighbor which tree company he used when he had some taken down last year. He had told us in general conversation that the price was really good, and that was something that I had always remembered. Continue reading Storms Took Down Some Trees
I had no idea just how spoiled I have become. If anyone would have asked me if I could go without air conditioning, I would have laughed at how ridiculous the question was. That was only until I had to go without my air for a couple of days. I was so miserable that I actually went to my mom’s house and stayed until I was able to get HVAC services in NYC to come out and take a look at my unit. I had no idea what was wrong with it, and I was not about to leave it to someone who is not a professional in that area.
The only thing I knew to do was to go online and look at the different companies that provide this type of service to residential customers. Before doing this, I had called someone that my neighbor had recommended, but they were not able to come out for almost a week away. There was no way I would be able to survive that! So, that is when I went online to see what I would be able to find on my own. I have to say I did a really good job of finding someone too!
The repairman that came out was extremely professional and friendly, and he actually explained what he was doing so I would not be left in the dark. It turned out that it needed a few small parts to it, and he happened to have them on his truck. He also cleaned it for me, and he suggested that I have it serviced at least once a year before the hot season even begins. He told me that I may have been able to avoid this if I had it inspected earlier this year. I am definitely doing that next spring, because I never want this to happen again.
