I’ve always had a poor problem with stress and anxiety. Whenever I become nervous, I start to sweat a lot. Many people would say that they sweat when they are nervous, but I sweat buckets. A few weeks ago, I had an interview for a big promotion at work. I have been with the supplier for nearly ten years, and I felt that I deserved the promotion. I waited for an hour, before my boss came out to get me. While I sat in the waiting room, I listened to the sounds of elevator music. The air conditioning system program wasn’t working particularly well, andRead More →

I’ve always had a bad problem with Stress and Anxiety. Whenever I become nervous, I start to sweat a lot. Many people would say that they sweat when they are nervous, but I sweat in buckets of water. A few weeks ago, I had an interview for a huge promotion at work. I have been with the company for nearly three years, and I felt that I deserve the promotion. I waited for an hour, before my boss came out to get me. While I sat in the waiting room, I listen to the sounds of elevator music. The A/C system wasn’t working very well,Read More →

My dear cat will not even cuddle with me anymore! Ever since we moved out of our seasoned current home as well as into the current new home he has been terrified of my bed as well as any blankets.

One of the best things I ever did was buy a portable a/c for my dining room.  Although I live in an section that is frigid & snowy for the majority of the year, every one of us do experience some sizzling & humid weather in the summer season.  The hot outdoor temperature and excessive moisture created sticky indoor conditions, which made it really difficult to sleep.  Because the summer season season doesn’t last long, it’s unnecessary to install a whole-beach home central cooling system. However, trying to get by with opening windows & running portable fans is difficult. The open windows create a securityRead More →

One of the best things I ever did was to invest in a portable air conditioner for my bedroom.  Although I live in an area that is cold and snowy for the majority of the year, we do experience some hot and humid weather in the summer.  The high outdoor temperature and excessive moisture create very sticky conditions and make it difficult to sleep.  Because the summer season doesn’t last very long, it’s unnecessary to install a whole-home central cooling system.  However, trying to get by with opening windows and running portable fans is difficult.  The open windows create a security risk and allow inRead More →

My poor dog will not even cuddle with me anymore! Ever since we moved out of our old apartment and into the new house he has been terrified of my bed and any blankets.

I don’t suppose how often the south normally experiences snow, however based on most people’s shock plus awe, it seems like this year has absolutely set the record for unforeseen weather occurrences. So far we’ve had several “snow” days which have simply just caused the entire neighborhood to shut right down in the very wake of a very few snowy dustings, plus I couldn’t even be more tickled by these exact “emergency” statements. The air temperature isn’t even dipping to a rather dangerous degree plus there hasn’t even been enough Winter season weather to really cause any very true disasters; actually the only thing thatRead More →

I don’t even know how often the south normally experiences some snow, but based on everyone’s shock and awe here, it seems like this year has actually set the record for unforeseen weather occurrences there. See, I’m not from these parts at all, so I don’t even understand what all the hubbub is truly about when the two of us just gain an inch or two of snow in the middle of December, but apparently it’s the cause for widespread panic right around here. So far we’ve even had much more than three“snow” mornings which have caused the entire town to shut completely down inRead More →

I don’t truly know how often the actual south normally just experiences a lot of snow, but just based on most people’s shock plus awe, it actually just seems like this year has genuinely set the entire record for very unforeseen weather occurrences there. See, I’m not from these parts at all, so I don’t quite understand what all the hubbub is actually just about when the two of us receive about an inch or two of snow right in the middle of January, but apparently it’s the exact cause for some widespread panic right around here. So far we’ve had numerous “snow” days whichRead More →

I figured, after always having great landlords, I was due for a bad property owner.  And, sure enough, I got it. I rented a small place by the bay and never took into account the fact that moisture would be an issue. I just thought it would be a great place to live. When the summer came around it became evident that mold and mildew were going to be a big problem.  Especially since the HVAC system barely ran and hadn’t been serviced in over two years.  I called my property owner but he just told me to deal with it.  I was sure thatRead More →

I do most of our own beach lake house repairs. I don’t see the need to have someone else come to our beach lake house and fix things when I can do it myself. Usually it takes me a little longer to finish the task because I don’t see the issue as often as a professional does, and so I lack practice. But in the end, I usually succeed. There are only more than one types of repairs that I typically call a professional for if there is a problem: electrical and Heating and Air Conditioning issues. I don’t guess anything about wires and IRead More →

It is only mid-January and I am completely over winter! Don’t even get me others started on how many snow days the kids have had.  It has cost me a small fortune in babysitters and we are not used to that anymore now that they all go to school. To top that off, we moved to a new place that we are renting and we are having several issues. . It never occurred to us to ask basic questions about things like the type of HVAC system that the place had. We would never have need of it much anyway because the weather isn’t thatRead More →

I am just over the ridiculous weather that we have been having lately. It seems like all year long we don’t know which season it is anymore with climate change. It is hot when it supposed to be cold, and it is cold when it is supposed to be hot. We are seeing snow in crazy locations like the beach and heat waves when there should be snow! The utility company is on cloud nine since their business is booming! The HVAC companies are selling more heating and cooling units than ever before! People can’t decided what they want more, heating or air conditioning. OurRead More →

Now that our home team has made it so far into the playoffs, it is only proper that we throw a party for the next big game.  It is a sizable tradition on our circle of acquaintances. This year, I was picked to host the get together. Our team has made it to the big game 9 times in a row, so it has been a tradition that had been going for quite a few years now. So, after I gathered all the food  for our party, our Heating and Air Conditioning system decided to act up on me. It started right after I gotRead More →

I absolutely want radiant floors in my home because of air quality reasons. Any heating element you get, air quality is always a factor you should consider. An oil furnace system has an air filter to catch the dust. The air filter should stop dust from going into the system and damaging it. However, the air conditioning filter can only catch so much dust, then if you are not on it with those changes, the dust goes into the oil furnace and then blows out through the vents! Now you have dusty indoor air quality. A heat pump is similar in that it has anRead More →

I work as a waiter in a fine a dining establishment. It is not too exhausting most of the time, but tips are really great because the bills are so high, but you usually get a great clientele because of the high prices too. The thing I don’t adore is the high A/C in the building. The cooling method is cranked all day, everyday. No matter the season, our building is frigid. My manager says it is because the people who dine in our eating establishment are wearing dress clothes. The guys are in heavy suit sweaters plus pants. All of us want them toRead More →

My guy Stephen and I recently did some house hunting. We went from looking at condo buildings, townhomes, to single-family homes. We finally decided on a house that the two of us could rent for a very cheap price. What the two of us found unusual was that most homes that the two of us looked at had more than one heating option. You could either get a place with a ductless heat pump or a fireplace in it! Neither of those heating possibilities seemed believable enough. Stephen and I live in the north, however are moving to the south! Living in the north makesRead More →

My brother Evan is such a cheap guy. Evan will usually choose to save a few bucks and sacrifice any convenience. Since I am the younger brother, I get dragged into his nutty schemes all the time. Evan recently purchased a new gas and oil furnace for his house. The furnace is taller than I am and twice as wide as a fridge. The HVAC supplier offered to deliver and set up the heating system furnace for a small work fee. Evan said no way, because he did not want to pay for any extras. He felt he could do the heating system set upRead More →

I have so much to do before I head to the south for a nice month long holiday. Plus I have to get all of my banking in order and ensure I have enough money in my bank account. I have to get 6 weeks worth of birth control. I have to pack a ton of clothes that are right for the southern heat and humidity. I also have to arrange for someone to watch my house and care for my pets. I can’t just leave my modern lake house alone for 6 weeks in the cold! For starters, I need a system for myRead More →

My wife and I are having a horrible time trying to maintain the heating in the house, but my home is easily big, not air temperate, plus naturally quite cool due to the large number of trees surrounding it; so our home has several gas furnaces, and there is a single one upstairs that is hooked up to our chimney. That furnace is a beast, it constantly heats and never dies, and I am pretty sure that furnace is at least double my age. The downstairs heating is a strange bird all together. Our gas fireplace is in the dining room and it will sometimesRead More →

Moving sucks, especially when you are moving to a new city. My friend Kyle & I have to switch up a lot of things. Both of us need to change our addresses & get new licenses. Both of us also need to change our student certifications to the new region. However, Kyle & I also need a new contact list for all of our primary needs! Where do we order tacos on Monday? Where is the closest grocery store? Who is our garbage guy? Who do you call for plumbing issues? There are also several essential companies that we will need to find. Kyle &Read More →

What do you think an HVAC professional looks like? I had consistently used the same HVAC corporation for years, plus they sent the same Heating and Air Conditioning worker each time. Bob was about 325 pounds, hairy, plus he permanently smelled like ham, he also had a super bushy beard and his pants never seemed secure on his butt. Bob was great at anything Heating plus Air Conditioning related, though. He could clean our gas furnace in under an hour. He also was great at finding mold in our air conditioner plus putting in the perfect amount of refrigerant. Any Heating or Air Conditioning repairRead More →

Sometimes I suppose that my life is just way too difficult as it stands; I begin to get pretty down on myself and also overwhelmed… At those times, however, I find that it’s very helpful to recall the harder times in my life and all of the many hurdles I managed to overcome in those conditions in my life! For instance, I used to take 20 credit hours a year while also working every single afternoon at a cellular research facility for only minimum wage. Back then I didn’t have a spare moment to myself, plus I could barely even afford to eat, although IRead More →

I don’t know that you’ve ever had to work a terrible 9-5 job, but let me tell you that it can absolutely make your entire life awful. You can sometimes try to reason with yourself, and say that, oh, it’s only for 40 hours out of the week and you still have plenty of other time to make your life exciting as well as fulfilling, but that wasn’t the actual case in my situation; I absolutely hated my work so very much that I was still aggravated about it during my time away from the building. It was a borderline traumatic experience to work thatRead More →

My husband and I bought our new house through an auction, without ever having gone inside of it at all. In fact, we had only seen a few pictures of the property! But, it was actually a  public auction, even though hardly anyone was there. The ramshackle old house looked to be in nice shape, though. It also came with twenty-five acres worth of land, so the worst case scenario would be that we’d have the land value to fall back on. My husband and I put in a test bid just to see what would happen, and what do you know!? We actually endedRead More →

When I consider all of nature’s gifts to civilization, there are so many things we truly have to be thankful for. I guess a few obvious examples are cable, Phones, and probably cars, beyond these items though, 1 can dig so much deeper in contemplation of the things that nature chooses to grace upon us. A primary example, drinking water! Where would we all be without this amazing feature of life? The answer of course is: not alive. So I love to be more mindful when I drink my glasses of the stuff. There are also tons of ways to make the overall experience moreRead More →

Beyond these though, one can dig much deeper in contemplation of the things that nature chooses to bless us with. For example, water! Where would we be separate from this great feature of life?

My hubby just signed us up for a weekend getaway at a very real cattle ranch. For hubby, this was a glorious opportunity to live out his boyhood dream of being a cowboy. I knew it was very important to him, so naturally I agreed to go with him. But I myself never dreamed of being a cowgirl ever, so spending three afternoons in the middle of a bunch of cattle and dirt did not sound appealing to me. But I was told we’d have a deluxe suite, and I could stay there while he went out adventuring. That sounded very enjoyable to me however,Read More →

I knew it was important to him, so of course I agreed to go with him.

Recently I picked up a gym membership for New Year and I don’t intend on being one of those people who works out for a single month and then calls it quits. I need a drastic change in my life and I think this will get me on the way there. The gym in this town is actually nice with every amenity you can even imagine. There is a full array of workout equipment, a bunch of weird classes, an Olympic sized swimming pool, and even a sauna, and all at a fairly economical rate. There is only one gripe I have with this gymRead More →

I guess spending time outdoors is a very good thing. People can get much too wrapped up in their weekly routines, and much of that involves technology! I know that I spend a lot of time writing texts and using social media… That’s why I try to make a habit of getting outside at least once a week. I usually go camping with my boyfriend, and we savor our outings together. The only thing that bugs me about our trips is the fact that I have no way to stay cool in the evenings.              There’s no possibility of bringing an a/c along when both ofRead More →

I imagine there is something to be said for knowing how to get a modern home ready for every different season. That isn’t something I was actually great at when I bought my first  home because I didn’t know a thing about our appliances… When the Winter season eventually came, I had no thought as to how I would benefit from having our HVAC component serviced.           The first Winter we spent in our new home was unbelievably cold. I can remember waking up in the middle of a frigid night, to discover that our furnace wasn’t working. I walked all over the new house inRead More →

Listening to the weather forecaster you would think the world was coming to an end. In reality, we are simply expecting 1 to 2 inches of snow but in our area that simply cripples everything. I do hate when they use words such as hunker down because it makes me think an old war movie. You know the type, the sirens go off and people hide in their basement for days hoping to escape any enemy attacks. Our region is not used to having freezing temperatures little Loan in type of frozen precipitation so it sends people into a panic when they start talking likeRead More →

As a newlywed, I have tried my hardest to start on the right foot with my in-laws. I figure that this is the year to make a good impression that will hopefully last throughout my lifetime. If I mess up the relationship to start with, who knows how long it will take to repair it? Unfortunately, events over the holidays seem to have destroyed my chances of starting things off right. I did not think that something so small as a thermostat could destroy our good relationship, and yet, here I am. The thermostat disaster happened over the Christmas holiday. My husband and I wereRead More →

The fall semester is about to begin so I packed up my car to head back to school. Seeing as it is my junior year my parents no longer take me to college each year. At any rate, I have been on the road for about 4 hours so I decided to stop and get something to eat. I pulled off at an exit that I normally don’t use but figured I could find something in the small town that was near there. As I drove down the road I only saw a couple of fast food places and then came across a small diner.Read More →

We love to take drives on the weekend.  With our children grown and both of us retired, sometimes we decide to make it an overnight trip. There was a really cool wine festival happening across state and it was about a six hour trip to get there.  I made reservations at a hotel near it and we set out around 9:00 am.  By one o’clock we wanted to stop for a bite to eat. We were in the middle of nowhere, so our choices were slim. There were a few fast food places but we wanted to sit down, somewhere other than the car forRead More →

I have a gas furnace in our lake house that is at least twenty-six years old.  The heating plan was already installed before I bought the house, and it was not honestly new.  I have been on the ball about scheduling professional repair every fall to optimize the performance, efficiency, and reliability of the gas furnace.  Despite our efforts, the gas furnace is starting show the wear and tear of a exceptionally long furnace life.  According to our heating and A/C company, I should have replaced the heating device several years ago.  He says it is no longer working at peak capacity or energy efficiency.Read More →

I attend university in the northeastern area of the country, and I decided to live in a small house off campus.  I drive to my classes, however there is undoubtedly limited parking available.  Many times, I end up parking over a mile away from the building.  The weather in our part is commonly extremely frigid and wet.  For most of the university year, the temperature lingers right around freezing, plus it’s either raining or snowing.  I carry a sizeable backpack plus walk through rain, snow, wind, and brutal wind chill. I make sure to wear my heavy boots, insulated coat, knitted hat and scarf, howeverRead More →

When my man, Antonio, and I first rented our house, we were actually glad with the new appliances, spacious family room, abundance of closets, and giant backyard.  After being there for a couple of weeks, I was distraught by the price of the utilities.  Our monthly electric bills were terribly expensive.  Antonio and I quickly started looking at chances to reduce our energy usage.  I then observed that the cooling system seemed to be firing up frequently, and was working for uncommonly long periods.  Despite raising the thermostat setting by plenty of degrees, the cooling system was completely struggling to meet the demands.  I startedRead More →

Last June during a summer heatwave, our central air conditioning system abruptly malfunctioned.  It quit running, and I couldn’t make it start again.  I tried cleaning the air filter, I adjusted the controls, changed the batteries on the control unit, and made sure there was electric coming to the equipment.  Since my comprehension of cooling system repairs is minimal, I figured it was best that I call a licensed professional.  The complication occurred during the middle of a long weekend, and I was too upset to wait for normal business hours.  The outside temperature was ninety-five degrees, and the relative humidity was easily horrendous.  MyRead More →

I remember last Saturday evening, when we went to church! The cooling system in the church actually quit working during the service. As it was getting incredibly hot inside, the pastor was asking the members of the congregation if we would be willing to donate to help repair this cooling system plan in the church. He was going on about it in such a way, and people felt inclined to put cash in the collection plate. All of us absolutely donated some cash. I knew that I actually had to because our husband would be terribly miserable with me if I did not. I spokeRead More →

Sometimes I truly wonder if we just have it too good in this country. I have visited other countries that don’t even have HVAC systems. I thought it was odd at first, and it was fairly hard to go without a high-tech HVAC system. Well, after thinking about it, I decided perhaps I was just spoiled.  Everywhere I go in our country, there are HVAC systems pretty much everywhere. Throughout the last country that I visited, I couldn’t find an HVAC system anyplace I went. It was a sort of humbling experience that really made me think. I was thinking I would attempt to tryRead More →

I grew up in a generation where pot was something you did, because you couldn’t get alcohol.  Parents didn’t think it was bad to share a drink with their teenagers, but they didn’t want to share, so the kids turned to pot.  Everyone said it wasn’t addictive, and no one had even considered it being a gateway drug. I was reading some articles recently, that was talking about the use of marijuana.  According to the article, marijuana can become addictive.  It isn’t in the same sense of cocaine or heroin, but you get used to the feeling of not caring, and no worries, and youRead More →

My absolute favorite thing in the world is movies. I am a massive movie buff and I own an extensive collection. I love all genres and additionally I love researching new movies released. I love going to rent them too. There is an something amazing about renting a movie. I like looking at the titles, picking out some candies and getting myself a gumball. What really stinks is I enjoy watching movies in the summer and my video store is normally unbearable to rent. The movie store doesn’t have any type of air conditioner system. The store uses is overhead fans to cool the building.Read More →

On the way to work last month, the air conditioning in my car stopped working, it was a scorching hot summer morning, and I got stuck in traffic.  Without an air conditioner, all I could do was roll the windows down and wait. I was really irritated, and I started to sweat. I knew that by the time I made it to the office I would look like I was drenched in water. I never realized how much I need a cooling system in my car until this happened. It took me a week before I could get my car to the mechanic to haveRead More →

It was something else when our youngest son went to his high school prom. He asked this amazing date to go to the prom with him and she said yes! I was so proud of our son, he truly deserved to have a great time. He would be going with a large group of friends with all their dates together. They were going out in a stretch limo to go eat and then head out to the prom. Our son wasn’t even distraught or worried, and the pictures we took were fantastic! When they all went to the dance, it turned out that there wasRead More →

Last weekend, I took my whole family out to the beach! I remember leaving the a/c on so the house would be nice and cool by the time all of us returned! A neighbor also came along with our family because he wanted to spend time near the beach as well. It was a good day for the occasion and all of us had a good time. My neighbor was telling me how I should seriously think about investing in a smart control unit, but he said instead of having to leave my a/c running, I could control and monitor the HVAC system remotely onRead More →

The weekend had finally arrived! I was so ecstatic. Nothing could bring me down from this peak of happiness. It had been such a long week, and I was certainly looking forward to just relaxing the whole weekend away. I think I would read a nice book, or maybe play some video games. I just needed to do something to get my mind off the drudgery of my job week. I woke up Saturday morning to a Heating and Air Conditioning system disaster! It had dropped to cold levels on Friday night, so I had to turn on my gas furnace a few degrees duringRead More →

My husband and I have not even had the opportunity to have a date night for quite a while, so we to go out last weekend to a dance club. We normally don’t go out to dance clubs, however both of us thought it would be fun for a change. We had met at a disco in the 70s and we had fond memories of those days. We usually would go out to supper, however that got boring. We heard that a local club was having a Disco Night and we wanted to go the dance club.  However when we arrived at the club bothRead More →

I recently had a truly bad experience with a cooling system repair.  It started when I woke up on a Sunday morning with no cool air circulating throughout my home.  The outside temperature was in the upper nineties, with high humidity. My home was severely overheated and humid.  I did what I could to get the cooling system started back up. I just couldn’t manage it.  Although I was reluctant to spend money for overtime services, I didn’t want to go without a/c overnight.  I should have done some research into the local heating companies and read true customer reviews.  Instead, I simply called theRead More →

I have many houses, with one located in the northern area of the country as well as the other in the south.  I spend the majority of the year in the north, although I hope to avoid the worst of the weather.  I really hate the snow as well as cold temperatures, so I try never to be forced to rely on my heating unit.  I typically finish up work in a rush to head south right after Christmas.  I remain there until the end of March.  This year, the weather has turned colder much earlier than usual.  It is only the beginning of December.Read More →

One of my most embarrassing incidents led to me completely breaking my arm. I don’t think I’ll ever live it down. Since our new apartment didn’t have central air conditioning, we couldn’t afford to have it installed right after purchasing a dwelling. My husband and I decided to get window A/C units for the bedrooms and family room! They could be turned on and off as needed to help save money, and they’d supply the cooling both of us needed. For the bedrooms, both of us found a few smaller used air conditioners online that we not very expensive. Both of us made the decisionRead More →

Ice skating has constantly been among my number one pastimes, no matter the time of year it happens to be. However, it’s especially superb during the Winter season months for the seasonal appeal. But, no matter what time of year I go ice skating, I’m never a huge fan of how chilly it is in the rink! Yeah, yeah, it’s ice skating, and ice is cold! I get that. But with the level of technology we have in this day in age for heating plus cooling, I just suppose there should be a better way to maintain ice rinks by now. If radiant floors areRead More →

My air conditioner gave several years of reliable operation before it swiftly quit in the midst of the night.  I should have called for professional repair when I first started the cooling appliance in the Spring.  I observed it was much louder than it usually was, as well as the cool air had a musty odor.  I made sure to upgrade the air filter, as well as I cleaned all the components I could get to.  Because the house felt a bit overheated as well as sticky, I repeatedly lowered the setting on the temperature control.  This forced the air conditioner to run longer asRead More →

Practically a year ago, my spouse and I took out a loan and made some massive renovations.  We put in modern windows, replaced the ancient oil furnace, and remodeled our basement into a usable living space.  The basement has always been damp, dark as well as moldy.  One of the most pressing reasons our seasoned oil furnace didn’t last as long as expected was because of the moisture in the basement.  The damp air corroded the heating equipment, washing machine and dryer, and also caused troubles with mold and mildew growth.  My spouse and I spent a great deal of currency on installing an effectiveRead More →

Do you want to be successful in life? It seems as if everyone wants to be successful in their life, even if we do not all agree on what success actually is… Some people define success in terms of accumulating money only. There is really nothing wrong with wealth, and it is certainly not a crime to be financially successful, although I define success much differently than that. I suppose success is defined by your capability to help others in life, and often, this does include some sort of monetary success because currency is absolutely a tool that can help you help others out… ButRead More →

I can easily recall one recognizably freezing Wintertime from my childhood. It was the year that the aged gas furnace died from overuse in our dwelling. Let’s face it, mechanical things have to be replaced, and that includes Heating and Air Conditioning appliances. The year the aged gas furnace died, though, was not just a typical year when we were a little cold for a while. That year is the year that changed in so many ways… You see, all of us lived in the northeast. That’s where I was born. The dwellings at that time did not have air conditioners, but every dwelling wasRead More →

There are a lot of people who enjoy to shower a few times every day. The reality is that when people do that, they strip all of the natural oils from their scalp plus face, which is why there are a large amount of moisturizing skin care products plus shampoos out there. Our society has gotten into these habits that are absolutely terrible for our bodies. One of my friends once pointed out that if you really cut back to only showering once or twice a week, your skin will be able to care for itself. In the beginning, you’ll have greasy hair but overRead More →

I have been doing work in hospitals for close to 20 years now. If you were to look over my resume, it might seem odd that I have worked at so many different hospitals. Honestly though, the transfers were all more or less for acceptable reasons. One of them, admittedly, was because I got into a relationship with a fellow surgeon plus we could not continue working at the same facility after we split apart. Other than that though, it was always to take advantage of a superb opportunity, the best of which was absolutely the most recent! Currently I am head surgeon at aRead More →

When I was only a kid, our Christmas traditions were regularly the same. We would typically get up early in the morning on Christmas, plus wake up our parents. After we spent the morning opening up our gifts, our mom would make us pancakes plus sausage. After our lovely breakfast, we would go outside in the snow plus spend the morning enjoying whatever Winter season presents we acquired. Our parents regularly purchased us a new sled, or a new bike, or something that went with the Winter season holiday. Most of our Christmas Memories involved snow plus very frigid weather. I decided to move myselfRead More →

Last weekend was Memorial Day weekend, and our family and I decided to go away. We had not been on a holiday in a long while, and it seemed like the best time for an extended weekend. We rented a lodge close to the lake. The Chalet was supposed to have more than 2 bedrooms and a couple of restrooms, and a great view of the lake. When we arrived to the rental property, we discovered a mess. The rental property looked nothing at all like the online pictures. The rental property had more than 2 bedrooms and only 1 restroom. There was no viewRead More →

My father has worked in the Heating plus A/C industry for his whole life, and he worked in the Heating plus A/C industry when I was just a small child. Now I am almost 20 years old. When our father first started out, he worked as a Heating plus A/C professional. He spent a great deal of time working for the same company. When the owner of the company decided to sell the Heating plus A/C business, our father decided to take out a loan from the bank! My father honestly wanted to buy the Heating plus A/C business, plus the guy wanted our fatherRead More →

My mom is all for saving money, and she has been at least my whole life. She consistently chooses the cheapest price when shopping even if it isn’t always the best product, and just recently, when it came to pricing out a replacement for her old, outdated gas furnace for something new, she was no different. My brother tried to talk some sense into her since this really isn’t anything you should be cheap about.  Of course, Mom would not listen and she went ahead and committed herself to the cheapest heating and air conditioning quote that she could find, then a couple of daysRead More →

My family has a hotel business in the city, and everyone in the family works there daily. I really hate it and I wish I could get a different job, doing something else. I am certainly the low man on the totem pole since I am the youngest and because of that, I have to spend my day cleaning up the rooms. Our customer base is typically people that are just passing through or men and women that get too drunk at our bar to drive home. So we really don’t get the classiest people staying at the hotel. When I enter the room, IRead More →

I had the greatest idea for a present for our Grandpa.  He likes to fish, so I got my siblings together and we bought him a good ocean fishing trip.  My brother bought him some new gear, too.  He has fished since he was a child and we would go fishing as a family, too.  He would take us to fish in the local river and at the lake, riding in the boat and seeing how many little fish the we could catch.  He’s a nice fisherman and always got the prize fish!  He’s never spent time on the ocean, however, so we thought it’dRead More →

I’ve decided to make my living traveling and experience the nation in a whole new way.  I’m a photojournalist and enjoy capturing moments and experience of everyday life.  Usually people in my articles don’t feel they should be written about because they’re not important or a big wig.  I simply tell them, that’s just the point!  I don’t write for the fame or to to promote someone’s company so they can make tons of money.  I want to help the small, family run business, or help a charity get the message out that they’re looking for donations.  I don’t need much to travel and IRead More →

My family and I went to several parties during the holidays. The one that I’m going to remember most this year, though, was the one at our neighbor Sally’s house. It happened that the night of the celebration was the coldest, most windy night of the year, with the snow just pouring down everywhere. When we got to her house, we were happy to get inside out of the snow and into his cozy, well-heated home. I particularly liked the fact that she has radiant floors throughout her home.             Well, we were in for a grim surprise. When we walked in, she informed us toRead More →

My brother and his wife are completely ridiculous when it comes to their cat. It’s like their child. They even call him their fuzz-baby, so I know I shouldn’t have been surprised when they came over and asked if they could borrow my fiance’s tools. They wanted to build the animal a new cathouse! What was surprising to me was that they asked for the name of the Heating & A/C corporation that we use, because they wanted to call a good serviceman to do a heating system installation and to install some radiant floors.            I replied, “I thought you had a new gas oilRead More →

My wifey and I recently went to our hometown to visit our parents. We hadn’t visited in quite some time and felt that some time with family was much needed.

Typically, when both of us visit my wifey’s parents, both of us spend most of our time with them in the home office closest to the dining room. They have many home offices, and I saw one thatRead More →
