My son went away to the military after he graduated high school. His mother and I both hoped that he would stick around and go to college in our area instead, so it was a big surprise when he joined the service. We both knew that meant that we wouldn’t see him very much for many more years. When his service time was fulfilled, he did come home, though. I searched for ways to connect with him, and found that ability through clay pigeon shooting with him on a regular basis. He was an excellent shot in the military, and I knew that he would jump at the chance to do it more on a recreational basis.
We were always very close to our only child. We did not have him until late in life, and this is because we had tried to have children for many years prior to his birth, but we were unable to. When we found out that my wife was pregnant with our son, we were absolutely elated. We had almost given up on the chance of having a child of our own.

When my landlord told me that he was not going to renew my lease, I was actually heartbroken. I had lived in the same house for nearly three years, and I was very good friends with three of my neighbors. I knew that there were no other houses for rent in that immediate area, and I had no idea what I was going to do. It didn’t take me long to know that I had to start looking at apartments for rent in Stockbridge, even though my heart was not in it. If I didn’t start looking though, I was not going to have anywhere to call my home.
One of the first complexes I looked at was one that was only a couple of miles from where I had lived. Continue reading Moving to This Apartment Was a Blessing
I needed to find a competition jacket for my daughter, and a few of her friends told me to go to the Junior Equine website. Not only do they have a lot of different styles, sizes and colors, but their prices are also the best in the industry. The first part sounded good to my daughter, and the last part sounded really good to me. I decided to not put off looking for her competition horse riding clothes any longer, so I did a search for the shop that they told me about.
I was really pleased with everything that I saw on the site, including the fact that it was not just about clothing. Continue reading Shopping for Horse Riding Clothes
When I got hired at a new job, I was happy for the most part. I had worked long and hard for this opportunity, and I knew that I was going to be successful with my new work. It did mean that I would have to be away from home longer than usual though. This normally would not have been a problem, but my mother moved in with me not long ago. I knew I would need to make arrangements, so I started looking at agencies and companies that provide elder care in Long Island.
My mom is pretty independent, but she was recovering from a serious illness, which is why she moved in with me. I would be able to make sure she had enough food to eat, but I would not be there to help her with personal hygiene or medication issues. Continue reading My Mom Needed Some Help
I would like to get a new television service hooked up in my house pretty soon. I abruptly canceled my television service a few weeks ago, due to a heated dispute that I had on the phone with a representative of my former television provider. My kids have been pretty upset, because they have gone without television for a few weeks now, and they are not very happy about that at all. I am looking at: http://satellitepackages.net/directv-packages.html to try to find some information on the different packages that are offered by Direct TV.
It is important to me, to be able to get a good deal, and at the same time, to be able to get a package that contains a lot of the channels that I actually want to watch on my television. I am a big sports fan, so for myself, I will be looking for a package that comes with a lot of channels that play sports programming. However, then there are also my kids, and my wife to take into account as well. Continue reading Packages Offered from Direct TV
When our company started to use an online calendar service with agenda-like capabilities, we were all like kids in a candy store. Prior to using it, we had quite a few missed meetings as well as double-booked conference rooms. The typical way for us to schedule meetings was either over the phone or email. Sometimes messages didn’t get properly delivered since phone messages were often taken on sticky notes and email messages sometimes ended up in the spam folder. Other times, someone may have forgotten to mark a conference room as taken, so we would have to hurry and find a place for the second meeting group when this happened.
Our boss had enough one day and decided to get organized in a very modern way. Continue reading Using an Online Calendar Service
A lot of people experience difficulty when it comes to adhering to a schedule. It often seems like the more we have to do, the more challenging it is to organize tasks and keep appointments. Most of the time, we can have a calendar to help us keep track of events and meetings but unless we can take that calendar with us regularly, it may not be completely helpful.
There are various portable calendar and schedule tools available on the market to help people get their lives organized and those are great solutions. However, an alternative is an online calendar service that allows for the managing of a fully fleshed out agenda as well. This functionality represents an evolution in scheduling and time management.
With a few points and clicks, you can set up your online calendar and keep it functioning in real time, with access to it from anywhere on the globe with Internet service. This eliminates the need to keep track of a portable standalone device that must often be synchronized with a host computer to keep the schedule current.
