When my oldest son had his first baby, my husband and I were absolutely thrilled to hear the news! We couldn’t wait to see the little one after he was born. A few month have passed since then, and now the man and his wife is at the end of their parental leave from work. Now we’ve realized what all of us got into by offering to take care of the baby while they both work during the day! In over our heads doesn’t begin to describe it. See, all of us started renovating the house room by room, and it’s proving to be moreRead More →

When my fiance as well as I eventually made the choice to get radiant heated floors, the two of us were seriously cheerful the two of us made this decision! When the two of us headed into the winter months, the two of us have never experienced such comfort during this time of the year! While the two of us used to experience frigid drafts through the household, as well as the two of us would regularly feel like it was always a bit nippy inside the dwelling, this was now a thing of the past. The way the Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/CRead More →

When I was visiting with a fantastic friend of mine the other morning, I couldn’t help say what was on my mind. I basically told him he needed to get HEPA air filters! He asked me instantly how I knew he wasn’t already using those particular air filters. I gave him a look and told him it was easy to tell that the air quality wasn’t unbelievable enough for it to be HEPA air filters in the HVAC appliance. He then got a little defensive and told me that HEPA air filters are just too lavish and he wasn’t sure that he could cover theRead More →

I just started my task roughly 2 months ago… I have actually learned a number of different things, but most importantly I know what to do and what not to do in our business building. For example with our office temperature control unit, there a lot of the coworkers who are especially stringent on when people change the temperature on the temperature control unit. The reason for this is that the building gets terribly humid especially in the summertime, and now since we’re getting into somewhat warmer weather, the building gets way more humid. The building is about 100 years of age and I canRead More →

When I was a young kid I enjoyed being involved in taxing projects and projects where I had to problem solve. I was always outside easily working with my mother helping her change the accessories on the tractor or tinkering with different cars. I shall never forget that there was this one day where I was helping my mother with the heating and cooling appliance that’s installed in the basement of their dwelling. This instance allowed me to determine that I wished to become a heating and cooling appliance professional. I get a lot of satisfaction and a feeling of pride as a heating andRead More →

The other weekend, when a Heating and A/C appliance service professional was doing work on our Heating and A/C appliance, my fiance really wanted to see the work that was involved. She wanted to see the work although I kept saying that we couldn’t go watch the guy work! She was asking me why not and said it was our dwelling! She had an excellent point I had to admit, so the two of us made the decision to go to check on the Heating and A/C appliance contractor as he was working on the HVAC appliance. He was glad to explain everything that heRead More →

The last time my parents ventured out for a visit to our locale, my father commented about how dreadful the air quality was. He thought this was not a good thing in the least for us, especially for our overall health. He said all that dust around the beach dwelling as well as pollutants that were entirely in the air had to be taken care of. So my father took me to the hardware store as well as we were looking at various air filters that fit the size of our Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C appliance. He pointed at the HEPA air filtersRead More →

Every single Summer the same thing always happens to me. The pollen count flies through the roof, the allergens are as thick in the air as a London fog, & I become entirely trapped indoors. This has been the way of the world for me since I was a little child. As long as I reside in this area of the country it will regularly be that way. I did a bit of research & would have to transfer to a much higher elevation in order to be free of most of the allergies I have & even then it’s not guaranteed. Instead I haveRead More →

I was never one for regular education, which may sound exhausting but it is in fact the truth. I was a layabout and a goofball in elementary school. From there my behavior only become a great deal worse. I was no less than a holy terror to every single one of my instructors, school administrators, and my own parents who were hastily becoming weary of my antics. By the time I was in high school I suppose everybody was wondering when I would finally drop out. I knew that I couldn’t just stop going to school though and do nothing, and my father had aRead More →

It was our daughter’s 16th birthday plus her friends came to myself and others saying that they were trying to throw a surprise party for her. I was certainly on board plus the people I was with and I worked together with some plans that worked for the group of us. The group of us decided to have the party at our dwelling. The group of us picked out a cookie cake, food, plus a bunch of nice decorations. I agreed that I would stay inside when the youngsters went out to the backyard to hangout around a bonfire plus our inground pool, however familyRead More →

Last week, there was an artic wave that hit the northeastern space of the country. Temperatures dropped into single digits, plus even down into the negatives in some locations. There was snow plus ice pretty much everywhere. I happen to work as an instructor, so I was fortunate enough to have university cancelled for 3 days due to the extreme freezing weather plus awful driving conditions. When the first snow day was called, I was actually excited. I spent the entire morning lounging around on my couch plus enjoying the immense heat. While most people were grumbling about how cold it was outside, all IRead More →

My oldest granddaughter just started learning to drive, plus he is entirely  nervous. She has only had his learner’s permit for 3 months, where he is required to drive with a licensed adult. I took our granddaughter out to the mall last weekend, just so he could practice driving. The mall is 30 miles away from the house, so we are required to take the local interstate. I knew it would be a taxing drive, however I thought the mall would make it worth it the stress. My granddaughter was entirely  nervous, especially when we got on that interstate! Every time the speedometer got closeRead More →

Most of our group of friends don’t understand the difference between a gas plus an electric furnace. Most of our friends cannot possibly install a heat pump, besides most of our friends have no method how an air conditioner even works. In our circle of friends, I am the guy with all this comprehension. When any of our friends plus family have trouble with the heating or air-conditioning equipment, they consistently call me to help them . I don’t mind being the man everyone calls in their time of need. I entirely enjoy being the knight in shining Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C armor. It’s oneRead More →

Every Summer of my private school education I went for two weeks to cheer camp. Every Summer but one was super hot. We had to drive for several fourths down south on a hot school bus to the cheerleading camp. The cheer camp was regularly around 90 degrees and had no A/C anywhere. It was known that somebody could get severely sunburned and every one of us would all be dying for cooling before the end of the experience. The chalets would get sizzling enough that adolescents would bring in portable fans for it. The camp had a pool, but nice luck trying to swimRead More →

My entire family moved up north but I live down south; For holidays and major events, I have to make the trip all the way up into the northern reach. It is a pain flying. No plane goes direct to our location. So I waste an entire day just making connecting flights. I dislike carrying our bags and getting rids to the airport smells. Most of the time I will make the drive to the north. It is 16 fourths of pure driving on highways. What is interesting is that you can tell what state you are in by the people and the temps. InRead More →

Last summer, I visited Mary over to the east. Mary had gone down to the east for a task option 4 years before, and had become rather glad down there and it was high time I paid her a visit to just catch up. The two of us had both grown up in the west,  where the summers were generally warm and the winters were certainly brief. Mary warned myself and others that the summers he experienced in the east were far more warm and humid than what I was used to and it took her a good long while to acclimate to them. AllRead More →

Wildlife really can be cool on occasion. I’m not really into camping or walking or certainly anything that requires me being in the wilderness for extended periods of time. Despite this, I can still like the looks of nature and all the pretty flora and fauna that this world contains. I’m just saying that I really get our portion of nature from a nature documentary on the TV. I recently watched a television show about bumble bees, and I must say that they are cool. What I did not expect was that directly thereafter they would start popping up in our house, here and thereRead More →

My pa served in the Navy force during World War I. My Mom served in the army during World War II. Many of my brothers plus pals have given years of service to our military forces, and growing up, I always knew that I would finish my school plus join the military as well. I studied hard in all of my courses. I graduated with a good average, plus I could have chosen any school. But, I chose to join the airforce. My Mom wanted me in the army, but the air force provided myself and others a sweet deal. I knew I would needRead More →

A lot of people only call the Heating & A/C service center if there is a drastic emergency! Let’s face it, the average Heating & A/C service bill is quite high. The only time our Heating & A/C idea gets your care, is when it fails to supply a quality indoor air environment. So customers will call many or a few Heating & A/C service centers until they find the cheapest option. After this though,  the cheapest option in Heating & A/C service is the one that gets the job. The cheap contractor is not always the most qualified to deal with the problem. WhenRead More →

Growing up in a really remote space of the southern area of the country, I was born with a very simplistic lifestyle… Our family didn’t have any fancy televisions or gaming consoles like most houses did; My parents thought those types of luxuries just ruined work ethic plus were a waste of money in general! It wasn’t until I was invited to my first slumber party that I realized all that I was missing out on! A buddy from school invited me to his birthday party where I was introduced to so many new things at once! Video games, junk food, all of it, butRead More →

Most young people firmly think that buying a low cost a/c when moving into their first home is a good idea, and I did the same thing a few years ago when I was in university. In retrospect, this turned out to be a poor decision on my part! My roommate and I were extremely uncomfortable throughout the first year living in our first apartment, and we even experienced a negative impact to our health. With low grade air conditioning units, poor air quality comes with it; over time our air conditioning equipment was having a tough time purifying the air that was coming intoRead More →

My schedule is severely hectic.  My partner in addition to I both work full-time, demanding tasks.  Every one of us have four sons who are all heavily involved in athletic interests.  It seems both of us are consistently running from a single obligation to the next, struggling to accomplish everything in addition to there’s never enough time.  Simply trying to keep up with in addition to manage our apartment is a challenge.

In the space where I live, the Winter weather properly lasts multiple months.  The temperature is often below zero with a dangerous windchill. The snow piles up in drifts in addition to there’s frequent university closings, blizzard warnings, in addition to driving bans.  Every one of us spend a wonderful deal of time inside the apartment with the oil furnace running. The frosty Winter air is naturally easily dry. The constant blast of the gas gas furnace lowers humidity levels even further.  The air inside the apartment abruptly becomes so excessively dry that it causes problems. Dry air feels cooler than officially moisturized air, leadingRead More →

Upgrading from a manually operated control device to a smart model with WIFI connectivity has been a huge improvement.  The current control device is truly compact, appealing & has simplified the management of our furnace & undefined. Although the cost of the control device was significant, it has genuinely paid for itself in energy savings.  I used to consistently forget to adjust the temperature before leaving for task in the day. I’d spend a fortune heating or cooling an empty house, and now, the smart control device raises or lowers temperature setting automatically.  For the first month after replacement, the control device kept track ofRead More →

I always worry about air quality in our home.  I realize that there are sources of contamination in every room.  Carpets, draperies plus bedding harbor dust mites. Pressboard furniture, paint, pesticides plus personal hygiene products supply off fumes.  Pets, cooking, showering, plus exterior pollution add to the problem. Even the oil furnace plus cooling system can worsen indoor air quality by spreading dust plus allergens into the breathing air.  Since I suffer from allergies, keeping a clean plus healthy home is a priority. I’m continually mopping, dusting, vacuuming plus washing surfaces down with bleach. I make sure to change the air filters in the oilRead More →

I remember the muggy June and July mornings of my hometown rather fondly. Both of us would have cold salad for dinner and light bonfires and go fishing and a generally have a good life down in the southern climes. Dealing with the heat was just a way of life. I honestly did not mind dealing with being hot. Having uneven temperatures between the 77s and the 90s for ten or eleven months of the year was just something that I had gotten used to. I suppose that some people cannot imagine putting up with such heat, but now that I am living much fartherRead More →

I will never cease to remember the first time I experienced radiant radiant floors. I was visiting a buddy up north that I had been missing. The last time that I saw his was in college and that was ten or twelve years prior. Since then, he had done pretty well for herself and had become a successful lawyer. As anyone would expect, his mansion was pretty nice. She had one of those automated homes where the kitchen appliances that you would not even expect to need it were “smart.” It was pretty over the top getting up in the day and going to theRead More →

The laws of entropy suggest that everything will eventually wear down, no matter how advanced the piece of technology. It doesn’t matter how efficient the equipment is, it will eventually have a problem. Manufacturers do not make things like they once did. Appliances used to be built sturdy and to last.  They were reliable for far longer than their modern alternatives. Sometimes, advances in technology often come with the setback of becoming harder to operate, less durable, less practical, and flimsy. Whatever the case may be, it’s never a good idea to ignore the maintenance of the mechanical components of a system. . A home’sRead More →

My husband and I  purchased a brand new furnace and central air conditioner  about three years ago. We took the time to pick out a top-quality HVAC system. We hoped to make our house  as energy efficient, safe and comfortable as possible. Once the equipment was installed and Mark and I were able to experience the performance of the Heating and A/C unit firsthand, we were impressed with the results. As wonderful as the new Heating and A/C unit was at first, we did not end up taking enough precautions to it working perfectly. Mark and I were well aware of the importance of changingRead More →

Last week my gas furnace abruptly quit on me. I was scared to death because of how cold it is this Winter time outside. I had to make it through at least one night where I was bundled up in the covers of shivering like crazy. I can tell you that my bestie liked it even less, and insisted that the HVAC worker come out as soon as he possibly could that following morning. Lucky for us, the worker was very quick to assist us. He came out at about 2 that morning,  and it was just about that cold outside: 2 degrees! The HVACRead More →

It’s not like I am unrespected with up-to-date technologies and conveniences. I like the vast majority of them just like everyone else, and I am so thankful to be living in such times. It’s just that there are some up-to-date technologies that I completely steer clear of. A certain kind of technology of the traveling sort… it’s planes. I am talking about traveling by plane. I hate it. I do not do it. At least, I never did before last winter. You see, my Grandma had abruptly fell ill, and all of the sudden, he did not have all that much time left. I neededRead More →

I very wish I knew whole lot more about cars. I am no mechanic to say the least, so I constantly seek out professional help whenever I have even the slightest concern with my vehicle. I recently went to an auto shop for an oil change and tire rotation. I had yet to try this auto shop, even though I heard that they were considerably cheap, so I gave it a go. I will admit that the prices were pretty good, and they did a good work as far as I could tell. However, their waiting room and store in general was easily hot. IRead More →

I went down to visit my parents recently. I am a instructor and I was on summer time trip. My parents were only too glad to have me visit and both of us had a great week together. My Mom has constantly been an excellent cook, and it was nice to have such great home-cooked meals again for that week. Both of us went down to the beach a few times together and I must say that they are beach house and the part is quite appealing. It was pretty hot and humid though. That was just about the only rough thing about visiting them.Read More →

When myself and others plus my husband were renovating a house the two of us recently bought, the two of us wanted to make it as hot plus inviting as possible, literally. Every one of us already had a pretty nice home to job with, which is why the home caught our eye in the first place. It’s just that it needed some special touches to be complete, in our esure. Every one of us ripped up the carpeting plus put in hardwood floors, for example, but not before putting something very special underneath: our climate control system! As freezing as the winters were inRead More →

I literally cannot stand the cold. I grew up on a farm in the Midwest, where the winters were legitimately brutal. There were some Winter days where I swear I could see my breath in my own living room. Our heating accommodations were sparse, just appreciate the rest of our accommodations. It was regularly snowing, plus the two of us would huddle in close to the fireplace during  some of the coldest Winter days. Thankfully, I did pretty nice in college plus was able to land a nice work. Once I received enough money, I left that small farming town plus hardly ever looked back,Read More →

My experiences with airports and flying is always a weather conditions control nightmare. First off, the airport terminal is always absurdly freezing, regardless of the time of year or the weather outside. That’s just a general rule that I have come to fully expect, however it sure can be bad in the wintertime, when you walk in from below freezing hot and cold temperatures and hardly get any relief from their Heating and Air Conditioning system. From there, you go from a freezing terminal to a cold airplane with very awful air quality. The cold, dry air that always feels so icky and full ofRead More →

Occasionally, I love to go a few afternoons separate from having technology in my life. I prefer smartphones, the internet, as well as video as well as movie streaming services just as much as the next person, however sometimes I love to like the things in life that have nothing to do with technology. Besides, kneeling in 1 spot as well as staring at a screen all afternoon just isn’t healthy, then part of what I love to do on these afternoons is get out as well as like the fresh air as well as sunshine. I go for a walk or ride my bikeRead More →

Spring can be an actually  appealing time where I live! Everything comes alive again. The trees are never yellower as well as the flowers bloom in  appealing shapes as well as colors. Not to mention the fact that you finally get relief from the freezing weather, as well as the sunlight as well as warmth begins to creep back into the afternoon. At least, 1 hopes for that to be the case, considering that sometimes ancient man Winter time decides to stick around for longer than he is welcome! Despite all the beautiful things that I have described about Spring, the truth is I haveRead More →

When I bought our considerably costly undefined, I fully expected it to work, not just reasonably, but better than any run-of-the-mill plan that I could have bought for less. What I came to understand is that no matter how extravagant or costly, undefined need proper maintenance and upkeep to continue to be able to perform their tasks well. I knew our part, at least. I would regularly change the air filters and make sure that the outside units were clear of debris… Occasionally but, complications require a professional. That is why I have respected maintenance done on our unit. That said, it had been aRead More →

When our husband and I got married, every one of us chose the coldest day of the year.  The people I was with and I were both looking at each other wondering if every one of us absolutely wanted to go outside.  The people I was with and I had 40 MPH winds and the temperature was already down to negative 4 degrees.

My wife and I thought it would be rustic and beautiful to renovate the old barn in the back of our property and convert it into a little house. she inherited this property some time ago, you see, and its most empty farmlands and scrub woods, however there is a sturdy two story barn near the far edge of the property line, it would need a lot of work, sure, but the bones of the barn were so solid, and the paneling so beautiful even after so many decades, we decided to take a chance on it.

As an adult my views have shifted a lot, and I have a policy of not talking about religion or politics, all it really does is stir up fights that should ever have been started. You vote your way I will vote mine, and in the meantime let’s be neighbors and act cordially to one another; I say that as a gentleman, a brother, a father, and  a small business owner, and one reason to avoid those subjects is that I don’t want to alienate any potential clients,because a small business is always a risky venture. Making people mad about this politician or that issueRead More →

Every summer for the last five years my siblings and I typically meet up at the same place at the same time. The location is the little seaside bungalow we used to visit as kids. We had liked it so much back in the day our parents had ended up buying it as a retirement home, but since they have passed on, my siblings and I typically gather on the weekend of their anniversary to celebrate in their lives. It is typically an amazing get-together, filled with loving memories and recollections and also a bit of beer. Last summer was a sweltering one, and theRead More →

I’ve regularly wanted to have radiant floor heating installed into my home.  I already have a boiler which is linked to baseboard heating. The boiler is wonderfully reliable, energy efficient plus low in repair.  Although I’m relatively happy with the baseboard heaters, I believe that radiant flooring would be a significant improvement. Unfortunately, the replacement project is very involved plus costly.  In order to retrofit hydronic radiant heating, I’ll need to completely tear up the floors. An Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C business would then have access to implement the pipes which carry the heated water.  Once the idea is in site, it will be veryRead More →

One important thing that my fiance and I honestly agreed about, was making sure that our furnace, ventilation, and air conditioning proposal was always set upRead More →

Being a director is a lot harder of a job than I had expected… Before this last weekend recording sessions, I assumed that the director was mostly like a supervisor. It is a far cry from simply keeping people in line, you literally have to know exactly how you want everything to come out, down to the smallest detail, and then makes sure everyone executes your vision! Without that guiding vision, the entire shoot turns into a mess. Seriously you don’t even know how hard this job is, and this was just an audio recording! We had several singers and a ton of mics, aRead More →

Working as a cop can be absolutely difficult.  My daddy has been a cop for the past 24 years plus now his life is even getting even more difficult.  They recently approved the recreational use of marijuana in the next country over. If you are there,18 years old, plus consume it before you leave the country, the country does not have a problem with it.  But, when you attempt to come across the line plus you are high on weed, technically you have broken the law in your own country. You also can not have any sort of pot or edible weed product with youRead More →

I joined the military because I did not have enough money to pay for school. In turn, I hoped that the Army would supply me with some tools for forging a bright future. Well, I did not learn much about the real world during my service, and I came out with only a new talent for staying awake and alert for twenty-four hours. I did not have any real skills to market myself in the civilian world, so I had a hard time finding a job. My brother was working for a security system installation supplier at the time, and shortly after I left theRead More →

Working in law can be undoubtedly hard to deal with.  My father has been a border cop for the past 12 years and now his life is even getting more difficult.  They recently approved the recreational use of marijuana in the other countries. If you are there, 20 years old, and consume it before you leave the country, the country does not have a concern with it.  But, when you attempt to come across the border and you are under the influence of THC, technically you have broken the law. You also can not have any sort of pot or edible weed product with youRead More →

My youngest sister hired a security system to monitor his home. The other week, she acquired a phone message that said there was a possible break-in through the basement window. The alert showed exactly which window was being tampered with.  She was in the house and hadn’t heard anything. She went to look at the window, plus there was a small crack on the inside of the window. It looked like a bullet hole. She could not find anything else, so she called the security company to tell them what she’d had found. They had some video surveillance, and there wasn’t anything on any ofRead More →

I didn’t think I really knew what I wanted to do after high school, so I decided to apply to the nearby technical college. I took some different classes, before I had to make any crucial decisions. I took a class on English literature, a class about the history of the Roman empire, plus even a class on Greek sculpture; but when it came time to decide my technical program, I chose heating and air conditioning service. I thought that heater and air conditioner repair and maintenance could be a fun job, plus all of the statistics said I could make a ton of money.Read More →

My heating plus air conditioner repair shop was burglarized just a few mornings ago, and I still do not have an idea who broke in, although I think it was just a few teenagers! The burglar used a rock to shatter the office window! Any burglar with correct tools, would have been able to entirely pick the lock. The store didn’t even have an alarm, so the burglars got away with a some items. They stole a kindle plus iPod from the office, plus they also got away with a few hundred dollars in money from the register. Luckily though, most of the heating plusRead More →

When I was about 9 years old my best friend had to go out of state with her family.  Her dad got a new job and I feared I would never see him again. Our families were entirely bad about getting us together over school breaks once or twice a year so the people I was with and I stayed close.  After school he invited me to come stay with him for around 3 weeks. My friend wanted to show me the local sites and meet some of his friends in his village as well. My buddy arranged for a get together at his beachRead More →

Years and years ago, my hubby and I left our house. It was a long road to get there, but the longest stretch of that road was having to get the septic system taken care of! In order to put your house on the market, the inspectors want to know that nothing is wrong with it – the house, as well as the septic tank! How they check for a busted septic tank or drainage line for the tank is simple enough – they use a colored dye, which they then put in the water supply that flows through all your plumbing fixtures and piping.Read More →

I didn’t know there was so much to do when you are preparing to sell your home.  I remember needing to have inspections done when we bought the house, but I didn’t know we had to have an inspection done when we were moving out of the house.  Our realtor suggested we hire a licensed inspector to inspect the house, before we moved out. She said that more sales fell through because the buyers inspector found an issue that was too costly for the owner to fix.  Most owners weren’t even aware of a problem. The inspector came into the house and he looked atRead More →

I knew about all of the maintenance plans I could purchase, because I had bought into all of them.  That is why my home runs so well and I have only have two breakdowns over the past twenty years. I believe that if you do preventative maintenance on your home and property, you can give them ultimum longevity and save yourself tons of money.  I bought a HVAC maintenance plan so I never had to lose my heating or air conditioning. I would hate for my heating to go out for any length of time. I would be afraid of my pipes freezing and thenRead More →

My husband and I have decided that it is time for a new hot water heater, again.  Over the years, we have gone through many hot water tanks. It is normal to purchase a new hot water tank about once every ten to fifteen years.  In our home, it seemed to be averaging out to a new hot water heater, every five years. We have already woken up in the middle of the night, to hear water running, only to find out that the tank liner had ruptured and we had a flooded basement.  I don’t like that the traditional hot water heater is alwaysRead More →

About once a year, I do maintenance on my hot water heater.  I have always heard how it was recommended for the heating and air conditioning, but I read an article about doing maintenance on the hot water heater.  A hot water can build up pressure over time. There is a pressure relief valve put in place to release that pressure safely. If the pressure relief valve isn’t working properly, then the hot water heater can actually explode.  You need to make sure the pressure relief valve is working properly to avoid that outcome. It is a simple procedure to check the pressure relief valve.Read More →

My partner and I have resided in the North section of the country, since we were small youngsters. Every one of us attended elementary school together, and we were friends until High School.

About more than two years ago, our fiance Matthew & I purchased a apartment in the historic district.  Our apartment is nearly two hundred years aged & retains various of the original features. The large windows, hardwood floors, ornate molding & wide balcony are simply gorgeous.  While the apartment is charming & rich with history, it presents quite a few challenges. The walls were constructed with the studs turned sideways to create more living space. The walls are also built of plaster & lathe which is hard to repair.  Tearing them down would create a large mess & impact the historical integrity of the home.Read More →

When it was time to upgrade the heating system in our home, I wanted to make smart choices.  A new heating plan is a large investment, & I was determined to avoid needless mistakes.

After four years in business, the family carpet cleaning business was thriving. I was working five days a each week, but our full-time employees were carrying the actual workload load.

My manager at the building where I work each day on the building management team has decided that he wants to add another highly dedicated person to the building management team. The people I was with and I truly already have more than four people on the team, not including me. However, to be fair, I’m not exactly a building management professional, if you want to know the real truth.

Whatever it is they want to call me, I don’t particularly care whatsoever as long as I get paid everyRead More →

I have been able to arrange our responsibilities so that I task completely from home.  It’s extremely convenient. I no longer need to set an alarm, dress for the office & drive to work.  I don’t deal with any of the drama of the workplace, & I set our own hours.
