I looked for luxury apartments in Stone Oak due to finding a position with a school district in San Antonio. I recently graduated with a master’s degree in education and wanted to leave my current position here in a small town in Illinois. I have nothing against living here, and I love my students, but I really felt the need to spread my wings a bit. Also, this town really couldn’t offer a substantial increase in my salary that a master’s degree typically brings to a teacher with lots of experience. Really it was just time to move on to greener pastures.
I looked at moving to Texas because of their booming economy and good weather. Continue reading New Job in San Antonio!
I have been looking for a new place since I got up here. The company did not give me much advance warning before they sent me to Canada. They are paying for an extended stay hotel, but I had to find a self storage in Keswick to store my stuff until I find a permanent place. If I had had a place to move it to, then I would have gotten one of those storage pods. That is an easy way to do things it is a lot simpler than the alternatives, like renting a truck and driving it up here. I did that and there were a couple of problems.

Some of the most difficult tasks as a small business owner are finding good services and vendors to help run your company efficiently. This is especially true for the more administrative tasks that lie outside of the main workload your business conducts. Many companies are aware of goods and services available necessary to get their legal, accounting, consulting or other business up and running, but when it comes to things such as office cleaning, trash removal, or paying employees, it can be more difficult to find the best services. Paying employees using a checkstub is an easy method for many employers, but it is a specialized service that needs to be hired out and becomes more complicated. This is a good example of a mundane task that is necessary to function, but is not easy to find a solution.
For small business owners, the biggest issue is rarely finding a vendor or service that can do the work for you, but finding one who can give you a volume discount so that your business is not paying the same amount for 10-15 employees as a large company with over 1,000 workers. The good news is that that services are commonly targeting small businesses more and more as a forgotten segment of the market. There is an opportunity to find vendors and services that can tailor their services so that they are smaller scale to fit your stated budget for whatever administrative tasks you need.
Small businesses in search of cost effective solutions can especially turn to online partners who have lower pricing that is more targeted to small businesses. For payroll services, you can keep your overhead costs down and have payroll handled quickly by using a service or software that can make weekly or monthly check stubs a breeze. Just research the company you choose as you would before you begin any business relationship to make certain they have the necessary security precautions in place.
I was just amused when they pitched it to me first off. Of course I had a couple of friends who were already involved in this sort of thing. One of them was working part time as a magician in London. He was obviously doing kid’s parties and that sort of thing, it was apparently good money for the amount of work that he was doing. Another girl that I know was a singer in a wedding band. They both told me that they thought that I could make a lot of money in catering, but it is not like that. Instead I am making pretty good money considering the amount of free time that I have to sink in it. Continue reading Started to Cater Some Weddings
In fact it was pretty fortunate that we were almost done, but me and Jack had saved the heaviest stuff for last. We had taken all of the boxes and sorted them out and put them in the rooms where they belonged, although a bunch of them were left in the garage because we had the boxes marked low priority. At any rate I slipped a little moving this really heavy sleeper couch. That was enough to throw my back out, although I have been seeing a chiropractor in Sacramento for a couple of years and it is not a big surprise. For the most part my back works just fine and it is going to do fine so long as I do not do anything like that. Continue reading I Hurt My Back Moving
It took a lot of time between when we decided to buy this place and when we are going to finally be ready to move in. The place had a whole lot of problems, but we were okay with it since we got at a considerable discount and the location was nearly ideal for us. I can walk to work from this place and it will only take around ten minutes. Amy can get to work in little more time. Putting the final touches on the house right now, we got some custom mirrors in Brooklyn after we completer renovated the master bathroom. It is roughly twice as large as it was when we bought it, but there was not much doubt that it had to be done over. Amy was the one who wanted something really big. Like most women her stuff takes up a lot of space in the bathroom and she wanted a double vanity so she would not have to give up any real estate for my stuff. Continue reading Putting the Final Touches on the House
It’s impossible to deny that we far prefer premium, high quality products. Between choosing synthetic over the real thing, the vast majority of us are going to want the real deal. The same can be said for even the likes of hair. I grew up with a mother that was way into wigs. It’s not like she even needed them herself but she enjoyed having extensions for whatever reason women enjoy that sort of thing – I have no idea. Whether it was her curly human hair extensions or the fake wigs that she enjoyed, she loved all sorts of hair.
Sometimes I think she enjoyed her wigs because they allowed her to go out in public without being a red head. Continue reading Who Was the First Person to Sell Hair
My mother has been wearing wigs for years. I always thought it was sort of a strange thing for her to do considering how much hair she actually had. I still don’t pretend to understand why she does it or why there is a whole industry, market and community which surrounds the supply and demand of wigs. I’m not here to judge, though, but I am here to help them! After reading about my natural hair extensions I came to the conclusion that I could sell my hair. Thanks to my mixed ethnic heritage I have some crazy curly hair which is exactly the sort of hair that goes for a lot of money on this unique market. Continue reading The True Value of Your Hair
With life as busy as it is, sometimes it seems impossible to even begin to start making large meals. If you work all day long, cooking a gourmet meal seems like something you simply cannot do. Fortunately, there are things that you can do to make good meals for yourself and your family without spending hours on cooking.
For starters, concentrate on one ingredient or one meal. Do you want to do something special with chicken? Do you want to make a killer dessert? Instead of planning an entire meal, try to stick to one new dish at a time. That will cut down your cooking time, and you will be able to really focus on how delicious one dish is instead of cooking and sampling a slew of new things at once.
Next, you are going to have to plan just a little bit. Once you decide to make hummingbird cake, for example, you are going to need to be sure you have all the ingredients on hand. Continue reading Making Time to Cook Gourmet Meals
Foods such as rice, beans and potatoes are staples in most people’s diets because they are inexpensive, healthy and tasty. Sometimes simplicity is the way to go when it comes to preparing these dishes, there are nights when a baked potato with a bit of butter is all you need to make a great meal. Still, eating the same food repeatedly can become very monotonous. Fortunately, a few small changes can make even these staple foods a new food experience.
Rice and beans are a great natural combination in a diet as they naturally complement each other in terms of nutrients, protein and vitamins. They also lend themselves to a variety of dishes that can be easily prepared and quite tasty as well.
For example, try using chili beans with rice for a change of pace meal. If you are a vegetarian almost every grocery store offers a bean only version of canned chili. Continue reading Staple Foods Can Still Be a Fun Meal
