Thinking of Buying Some Property in the Mountains

Leroy Lang/ September 8, 2015/ Fraction/ 0 comments

My brother and I went out to the mountains this weekend and looked at a log cabin up there. It was about twenty minutes out of Asheville and pretty close to a couple of the ski resorts. The cabin was in a sorry state and it was not really that big of a part of the sales pitch. The land was what was for sale. That was about forty acres. Most of it was forested, but part of it had been used for Christmas tree farming. I talked to a guy who does tree removal in Asheville NC about some of the trees which would have to go if we bought the land. Of course if we took out the Christmas trees, that would make it pretty easy and anyone could manage that. The rest of it is a really big problem for any person who does not have real ability in the field. I can cut down any tree, but only if there is nothing in the way and that is hardly ever the case. In this case you would be clearing a place to build a house out of a forested area. So any place you drop the tree you are going to have a dozen other trees in the way. The last thing you want is to get the top half of one tree caught up in another tree. They call that a widow maker, because it is hard to know when it is going to come down. When it does it is going to be a real problem for anything or any person who is in it’s way. So you have to go up the tree and cut out the top of it piece by piece. Of course that is a dangerous job, especially for an amateur.

How to Find Bed Bugs

Leroy Lang/ September 7, 2015/ Fraction/ 0 comments

I spent the day learning how to figure out if you have bed bugs or not. That is a big deal to my boss. He has a boutique hotel on the Lower East Side of Manhattan and the last thing that he wants is for one of this guests to go on the Internet and tell the world that he has bed bugs. That would really ruin your business. So when someone checks out we look the room over and if we find them we have a guy who does pest control in NYC. At any rate you need a black light to detect the bed bugs, or an ultraviolet light source. I have a flashlight and a magnifying glass which I use. You can look for the signs of their activity too. They bite people obviously and that leaves a blood stain, albeit a very small one that you could easily mess. They also leave their poop on the bed. So far I have not really found anything, but the idea is to be vigilant and make sure you catch them before it becomes a full blown infestation. So you check every room as soon as the guest has checked out. You have to remember that every person who walks in the place could have them hitching a ride on him or on the luggage they carry with them. Obviously you want to be sure that you do not spread them to the other rooms. It is a very quick time between when you have a few of these things and when you have thousands upon thousands of them. So you want to find them and take the steps needed to get rid of them as soon as you possibly can. That way the pest control people have a very manageable job.

We Just Got to Cherry Creek

Leroy Lang/ May 27, 2017/ Fraction/ 0 comments

We just got here a couple of weeks ago and for the moment we still have our stuff in one of those storage pods. They have it stored at their facility. Of course the company acted as though it was an emergency, but when I got here I realized that the people here really were not in dire need of my leadership. They were simply all doing their jobs and not worrying about the big picture stuff. I have to find the right piece of Cherry Creek real estate right now. We need a three bedroom house, but the idea is to get a four bedroom place if that is practical. We do not need another room really, but Emily wants to have a home office. She is going to be working from home for the moment. It is fortunate for us that her employer was willing to be flexible about this stuff.

At any rate I am hoping to find a large piece of property, but one which is reasonably close to the office. I would like to have at least five acres of land, enough so that you could have a few chickens and a couple of goats. Our son is really big on having all sorts of animals around, he wants to get a llama for some reason. I told him that like other camels, they like to spit at people that annoy them. This did not bother him at all. He said that he would wear goggles. Obviously we are looking at the local schools too and hoping to find one that is really excellent. We have not really decided about the question of a private school, but that is really expensive and it is not something that we would go to if the options are there.

My Neighbor Learns a Lesson in Just How Hard It is to Prune Trees

Leroy Lang/ April 5, 2016/ Fraction/ 0 comments

I watched my neighbor use an extension ladder trying to prune a tree in his front yard. It was a pretty big maple tree. It had beautiful fall foliage. He would cut one side, and then cut the other. He was not being safe with the ladder. He used a gas-powered chainsaw and had one of those manual pruning hooks. He went back and forth trying to even the tree out. He gave up and left the ladder leaning on the tree after he about ruined its look. A place that does tree pruning in Queens County, NY showed up at his house the next day. I saw them pull up while I was having a cup of coffee on the porch.

My neighbor saw me and came over after he talked to the tree pruning crew. They got right to work on that tree and the other one on the other side of the sidewalk leading up to his house. In no time they had them even and matching. They cleaned up all of the branches including what my neighbor had left on the ground in his frustration. As they moved to prune the trees in his back yard, he had a cup of coffee with me. He told me he tried to do it himself to save some money. He was always pinching pennies that ended up costing him more in the long run. I remember him driving almost 100 miles to save $10 off of a fishing pole. I usually never say anything. I just listen. After all, I have my issues the same as he has his.

He looked at me and told me how he goofed again trying to cut the trees on his own. I told him we all live and learn. I told him about my experience in terror of height trying to paint the windows on the second story from a ladder. I never did it again after that first time even though I was getting a little more used to the height. I’m glad he gave up. I like the trees in his yard. He would have ended up killing them all.

I Learned About a Product That is Helping My Neck in an Amusing Way

Leroy Lang/ December 7, 2015/ Fraction/ 0 comments

After hearing an acquaintance make some inside jokes to one of my friends about her Magic Wand attachment, I decided to wait and ask my friend in private what it was. The acquaintance does not know me very well, so I assumed that’s why she just wasn’t being more forthright about what she was talking about. So, I asked my friend later on when we were out of earshot. When I heard her answer, I had a fit of giggles. I learned that the attachment is something that a lot of people use for intimate moments, and I had no idea. I am the last to learn about these kinds of things. But she then said they are fantastic for pain in your back and neck as well.

I had previously bought some heat cream for problems that I have with my neck, and that worked a little. I wondered if I could buy this wand and see if it would help my neck any. I am not married and do not have the luxury of asking a spouse for a neck rub, so I thought it would be worth looking into. The pain I was having had been getting worse and worse, and the situation just felt desperate.

Online testimonials told me what I wanted to hear about using it as a massager. Everyone said that the subtle vibrations really work to release any tenseness that you have in your muscles. My problem stemmed from the way that I sit in my office chair all day. I had even found myself worried that if it continued, I would have a tough time sitting for very long at all, which would become an even bigger problem in my life. So, I ordered one, tried it out, and I found relief within minutes! I now use it every night after a long day of sitting at work.

My Trees Really Needed to Be Trimmed

Leroy Lang/ November 6, 2015/ Fraction/ 0 comments

I bought my house nearly a dozen years ago, but I never had the money to take care of the property the way I wanted to. There are a lot of trees throughout the yard, and most of them have never been touched as far as pruning or trimming goes. When I got a nice bonus at work not long ago, I decided to use it to finally get the trees trimmed back some. Since I had never used a tree service in Queens NY, I wanted to take my time in picking out the right one.

I did not want to just call the first one that came up on an online search. I wanted to actually look at their site and make sure that they have the experience and resources to do this kind of work. I also wanted to make sure that they were trained and insured, because some of those trees were pretty tall. I did not want someone inexperienced climbing up one and trying to trim it, only to fall to the ground. I know that seems far fetched, but I have seen odder things happen! That is why I wanted a crew that is experienced and knows exactly what they are doing.

When I looked at Miguel’s Tree Care, I knew that they were the company that I wanted to finally make my trees look better. One of the things that drew me to them, other than the experience that was evident in both text and pictures, is one statement on their site. They know that pruning a tree is actually an art form, and the pictures on their site showed that they really do feel that way. They trimmed all of the trees around my house, and it looks so much better now. I’m going to have this done regularly from now on.

A New Place for My Uncle

Leroy Lang/ September 7, 2015/ Fraction/ 0 comments

My Uncle Cletus has been a very important part of my life. He has been a second father for me. I always liked when he visited. He would always bring us treats from his store. He was so lively and active. My uncle was full of life. He had a talent of making my brother and I happy during difficult times. As I got older, so did he. Today, he is older. He does not have as much energy as he did in the past. He is really sick. My aunt needs senior home care in Queens. He seriously needs help.

My Uncle Cletus started having problems four years ago. He started to slowly forget important things. He would forget his address or his social security number. He had to write it down on a sheet of paper. This was dangerous because someone could easily steal his identity and take his money. He also started to forget people in his own family. He barely recognized his own sons. He once confused my brother and I as his own sons. He completely forgot that he had a granddaughter. My aunt took him to the doctor. My uncle was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. It was a devastating blow to our family.

My family also suffered again. Last month, my uncle had a bad fall at his house. He severely injured his hip. My aunt is having a very difficult time taking care of him. She has to help him to the bathroom. He cannot go on his own. My uncle’s Alzheimer’s disease is getting worse. My aunt fears that he will wonder off and get lost. He needs constant medical attention. My aunt wants to find a place that will take good care of her husband. She is looking for a place with a trustworthy reputation.

We Have Come So Far

Leroy Lang/ August 15, 2015/ Fraction/ 0 comments

With sites like http://www.cable-tv.com/cable-companies/ to help you find the specific services which you are looking for it makes you wonder if anyone even uses a phone book these days? That’s how much the Internet has changed our lives; so much information is now freely available to anyone who has access and has a need to find something. I can go to Google right now and propose to it any question that I might have and it will pull up an answer for me. This sort of power at our fingertips is something that our ancestors would have considered divine!

And yet here we are as Americans in a fight with the ISPs whoa re trying to do all that is in their power to diminish it. It’s an absurd notion to think that we have come so f ar only to have a collection of a few men and women trying to dictate control over such a powerful means. Sure, it is a threat to their business models in many ways but one should ask themselves why is it a threat? Is it because they have not done much to improve their own technology and thus more consumers are choosing alternatives?

If that’s the case why not make improvements? It seems so simple, really. There is a problem so fix it. The problem can only be fixed by addressing it and hiring the people that are necessary to do so. People with vision and a sense of what the consumers want. I’d love my cable even more than I already do if they let me create my own cable packages. I don’t watch everything that I have so it’s kind of a waste of money for me but I like what I do watch so much that I am willing to pay for other content.

Best Mastering Studios for a New Record

Leroy Lang/ May 29, 2015/ Fraction/ 0 comments

I am trying to get into the music business and I finished making my first CD a couple of weeks ago. I thought about trying to release it as is, but I really do not think that it is ready for general consumption. I think that it can be better. I do not have the equipment to do better at my house though, so I need to find a place to master this record and I need a mastering studio to go to. I am not sure if there are any studios around here that do this sort of work. I am sure there has to be some place at some reasonable distance from my house, I just need to figure out where and how much it is going to cost for me to get a sutdio session, so I can come in and do what I need to do.

I wish that I could just do this at home, or that I didn’t have to do it at all. But the sad reality is that I don’t have the ability to get my tracks to sound like I want them to, just using the equipment that I have available to me, so it seems pretty obvious, that if I am going to get the best results, then some mastering is going to have to happen.

I have never done anything like this before. So I am pretty worried that I won’t be able to get a good job. I am hoping that they will give me a bit of a tutorial and maybe help me a bit to get comfortable with the equipment. I do have a pretty general idea of all of the things that I need to do to get this record ready to be released though, so that is good.

Keeping the Music Venue Secure

Leroy Lang/ February 5, 2015/ Fraction/ 0 comments

For a musical event, I hired security services for San Jose residents. I planned to have a lot of celebrities at the event, and I didn’t want any of the attendants causing any trouble. There’s always someone who tries to leap over the gates to get their hands on the celebrities. I also didn’t want anyone who didn’t have a ticket sneaking into the event. I’ve seen too many cases where people didn’t hire security for an event, and things went horribly awry. It’s better for the safety of the attendants and the guests to have someone working security.

The company I contacted agreed to send over some of their best men on the day of the event. They would stand guard at every entrance and exit and check the tickets. There would be some near the stage barricades to keep the crowd back. There would also be some roaming around backstage just in case some crafty person managed to get back there without anyone else knowing.

I was a bit nervous on the day of the event. Even though I had some of the best security in the area, I was still scared that something would go wrong and someone would cause problems. Fortunately for me, my fears didn’t actually turn into anything. The event went off without a hitch. Every one of the attendants showed their tickets at the door, and the crowd was pretty orderly for the most part. When a few particular guests came to the stage, the attendants became a little loud and crazy, but the gates kept them back, and no one tried to jump over the gates. It was a fun time for everyone. I raised a lot of money from the event, and donated it to charity. Hopefully I can have the event again next year.

Working on My New Blog Now

Leroy Lang/ February 5, 2015/ Fraction/ 0 comments

It is not exactly an original way to make money from home, but I have been working on a blog which in theory is going to help me out. The idea is simple and involves a couple of other web pages which are connected to this one. They are supposed to mutually support one another. It is sort of like a three legged stool in theory. That is to say one web page has content linked to the other two and if you are searching on the internet the three sites are supposed to work in concert towards helping me get noticed. It is a really big deal to be able to show up on the search engine results, but obviously you are competing with a lot of really smart people and there is a lot of money involved. All of these is basically about mathematical expressions called algorithms which those guys at Google and the other search engines use to figure out how to rank search results.

This is the bottom line. If I am on the web searching for a piece of pizza I am going to have a computer screen or a smart phone in front of me.On that screen is going to be a number of results and after that page there are going to be another million pages of search results too. Those probably never get looked at. The guy is going to look at the first page and maybe he is going to check out the next page. The third page might get looked at once in awhile, but usually what he wants is going to be found in the top search results. So if you are not there, then you may as well not even exist in the real sense of the process.

Almost Thought I Ruined an Analytical Balance

Leroy Lang/ January 10, 2015/ Fraction/ 0 comments

Of course you probably do not know what that is, but it is a really good scale. In fact they keep this one covered with a glass or plexiglass cover. That is to keep the dust from gathering on it, it is sensitive enough that you have to think about stuff like that throwing it off. I was was messing with it and using the calibration test weights to make sure that it was working the right way. I picked it up to move it a couple of feet and then these two idiots started pushing one another. Of course I was not paying attention to them. I was paying attention to the delicate piece of lab equipment in my hands and not thinking that two buffoons were behind me acting like two buffoons. At any rate the one guy weighs every bit of two hundred and thirty pounds. He is the back up left tackle on the football team and a really big idiot beside that. When he bumped in to me I went down to the floor.

Of course I did not drop that thing, because I was afraid that I might have to pay for it. It was lucky for me that the professor saw what happened. He was not worried much about me and whether or not I had a boo boo either. Of course he does not want to tell his department head that he needs to replace an expensive lab instrument like that. For a couple of minutes I thought that it was messed up too, but the thing has a reset button on it and it has the means to recalibrate it if you lose the settings. So it was not that big of a deal if you knew how to zero it back in.

We Have Our Back-up Plan on the Right Track Now

Leroy Lang/ November 21, 2014/ Fraction/ 0 comments

I struggle with keeping our office organized, even though I have employees who I have hired to help me with the task. This is partially because they come to me to let me know we need to pay for certain things so that we can stay on task without any trouble, and then I waffle back and forth about whether I want to spend the money or not. We are a small company, but I do have a network administrator. He told me that I needed to do something about getting backup server service sooner, rather than later. As per usual, I told him I would think about it.

The very next week, he came to me to tell me he thought that a virus had infiltrated our network and he was not sure if he could save all of our data. But he promised he would do everything he could to try to rectify the situation. More than likely, one of our other employees had downloaded the virus, although each of them has been told they are to never download anything from the Internet for this very reason. But even if you think you have the best anti-virus software and it is kept updated often, employees can still ignore you and do something that can really affect your business. Especially if they accidentally download a brand new virus that your software is unable to catch.

We were lucky. My network admin was able to eradicate the virus and keep all of our data intact. But he reiterated that many other businesses are not so lucky, and we could have lost everything. You can bet that I gave him the go ahead to get backup service immediately. I now realize what is at stake, and he has us set up now so that if anything else happens we are now fully protected.

The Perfect Cup of Coffee

Leroy Lang/ November 8, 2014/ Fraction/ 0 comments

I wouldn’t call myself a connoisseur of any sort but I do like to consider myself an individual who is well versed, thanks to experience, in the ways of coffee. I’ve drank a lot of it you see, a whole lot. My parents started to give me a cup of coffee every morning before school due to my grumpy attitude whenever they tried to wake up. Nothing seemed to work until they put that first cup in front of me one wonderful day. Now, as an adult, I enjoy these myself- click here to get your beans delivered – from Central Coast Coffee.

Now, I’m no bean expert. Like I said, I’m merely well versed in the way of a good cup of coffee. What I have discovered is that beans are what help define the robustness of a cup of coffee. I want to taste my coffee and not just the milk or sugar that is typically piled into a traditional cup. I want to taste the caffeine! I need to know that what I’m drinking is going to kick my brain into overdrive for the day. When I smell that cup, I want to taste it with my nose.

A good cup is going to smell as strong as it tastes. The aroma alone should be robust enough to wake you up in the morning which means you’re going to need some serious beans to get the job done. They’re more expensive but worth every single dollar. Buying in bulk is the best way to spend your money when shopping for coffee beans. Also, make sure you have a decent grinder so you can experiment with your own brews – this is how I’ve managed to refine the perfect cup of coffee for myself over the years that gets me moving in the morning.

How SEO Can Benefit Businesses

Leroy Lang/ October 22, 2014/ Fraction/ 0 comments

It seems like nobody could have predicted the way the internet would grow, but it happened nonetheless. It used to be a much different landscape, with few companies being quick to adapt to the online world and most viewing it as a simple novelty. These days, however, it is basically the opposite with companies that do not have websites being the rarity. The bottom line is that not only do current customers expect a website, but websites also provide a way to find new potential customers as well. Click here to find exactly how any business or website can amplify these results though, because it is much easier than most people might think.

Of course the hardest part of internet based business properties these days is that there is so much competition. Almost every niche and category has a website already, so launching a new website does not guarantee and audience. People need to be able to find the website in order to even consider becoming a regular, but finding a website is nothing like looking in the local phonebook. Instead, websites rely on search engines and similar tools to help bring their company into the limelight, hoping that curious customers will find their domain name in the listings.

The biggest problem here is that with so much competition, the websites that are not near the top of any listing are often never seen. The universal truth is that if someone finds a solution to their problem, they are not likely to continue looking for alternative options. So if someone is able to steal a customer away before they even notice your business exists, this is a major loss. Using SEO techniques like these can fix that problem though, as they use proven and legitimate techniques to boost your website’s ranking and make it more visible.

I Needed Graphics Work Done

Leroy Lang/ August 25, 2014/ Fraction/ 0 comments

When I decided to have some graphic work done, I wasn’t sure if I should go with a freelance graphic designer or hire a company that has been in the business for quite some time. I had one person who a friend recommended, but an associate at my last job recommended that I stick with a professional group to do my graphic work. I didn’t understand why it would matter so much until he pointed out a few things to me. A company is going to be more reliable in a number of ways because they have a reputation to protect.

Just to play devil’s advocate, I explained how an individual would have a reputation to protect also, but he pointed out that it would be a lot easier for a single person to start over. A company would not be able to close its doors and start afresh without its past following it. Also, there is more than one person working on graphics projects when a company is the one handling it. That means collaboration, which can be essential with something like this. He made a lot of sense, and I decided that it would be in my best interest to go with a company that has a proven track record for many years.

I looked at the website of this company, and I knew I had made the right choice. I really liked everything I saw from flyers and brochures to name cards, and I decided to have them do all of it for me. I needed help with a logo, and they were able to help me with that too. I could not be happier with the final graphics work that they have done for me, and I know that I will be a lifelong customer of theirs. It’s reassuring knowing that they are not going anywhere!

I Enjoy Betting on My League

Leroy Lang/ June 19, 2014/ Fraction/ 0 comments

I have always been the type to bet on things. Whether it is a local lottery, a sports game, or even something mundane as an awards show, I like to have my opinion known on who is going to win. That is why I was pretty excited when a new friend of mine told me about a site that he uses for his la liga betting. Surprisingly enough, I have never ventured online to do any type of betting, but he gave me the right words to pique my interest.

I have been a fan of the La Liga league for all my life, and I have won a good bit of money by placing winning wagers on them. Sometimes, I have made even more by betting against them, which puts me in the minority. Because I don’t let my loyalty to the league skew the reality of a match, it means that I am able to bet against them even though my heart wants them to win. That alone has netted me a good bit of money, and it was why I was really interested to learn more about this betting site.

When I went to the website he gave me, I could see how well laid out it was. Also, he had told me that he had won several large wagers there and had never had a problem with any payouts there. I still made my first wager on the small side, and I was pleased to see that I won the money promised with no problems. Still, I made my second wager just as small, and the third one as well. By this time, I felt confident about the site, and I started making the wagers that I truly felt were worth the time and money. I have not looked back since starting this site, and my bank account is thankful for that!

Guitar Lessons with Tons of Options

Leroy Lang/ May 27, 2014/ Fraction/ 0 comments

Brighton Guitar LessonsMusic has been greatly valued for many years, and is one of the few things seen across almost every culture and area on the planet. Although the details and styles may vary greatly, the bottom line is that it just seems to be human nature to enjoy music. Some songs are upbeat and exciting while others are slow and soothing, with everything in between. It seems like almost everything imaginable is out there, and everyone has their own personal preference. Learning to play music is often a highly enjoyable experience too, so getting guitar lessons in london has become increasingly popular.

Of course just deciding that you want to sign up is not enough because finding a proper teacher can be harder than you might assume.

When the Question of How to Get Rid of Herpes is Asked

Leroy Lang/ January 18, 2014/ Fraction/ 0 comments

Genital herpes on the penis © Australian Herpes Management ForumOne of the most common questions I have heard recently concerning sexually transmitted diseases is about how to get rid of herpes. I don’t want to be the bearer of bad news, but there is no cure that exists for this disease. It does not matter if you have genital herpes or just the common cold sore variety of the disease. The virus stays once you acquire it from exposure to someone who is infected. However, there actually is some good news concerning herpes that is better than getting some other forms of sexually transmitted diseases.

Herpes is really only a problem, as far as symptoms go, when there is an outbreak of sores. This is actually true regardless if it is genital herpes or just a simple cold sore. You do not notice it when there are no sores.
