Moving into a new home has always been my dream. A place where I could finally raise my kids and create a better environment for them. However, I never thought that when we moved into our new home that concerns would be raised about our drinking water. I mean the house was in great shape, and the neighbors never mentioned anything negative about the area when I spoke to them.
I remember my daughter getting ready for her bath when I heard a scream from the bathroom. I ran in to see what the problem was, and although it was not a reason for her to scream, there were a lot of particles of some type in her bathwater. I immediately thought she just forget to clean out the tub, so I let the water out, washed the tub thoroughly, and ran her some more bathwater.
Unfortunately, the same thing happened. There were particles of disgusting appearance running into the tub with the water. Instantly, I started to feel sick, because this would mean unclean drinking water for me and my family. After seeing this, I immediately called my landlord and begin talking to her about water filtration media.

Growing I was a little different. Instead of watching cartoons like other kids I liked to watch the news. I found it interesting learning about what was going on near me. Some of the stories were rather bland or seemed to be a stretch, but the news of daily life was always intriguing. I also loved to watch national news casts. There are so many interesting things that are going on in this country. So many good stories that I was able to hear about every day. One of the things that always intrigued me most was the weather. I found it fascinating that someone could predict what the weather was going to be like the next day. They weren’t always right, but usually they were pretty close. Now that I’ve grown a little older I’m less inclined to enjoy the news. Even the weatherman with his green screens doesn’t hold the same appeal.

Okay, if Tom and Steve get married, there are some problems. First of all, who is carrying whom over the threshold? And who’s going to wear the dress and the tuxedo? Who is doing the catering, and who is going to be invited? Where is the reception going to be held? Are the queens going to be be bridesmaids? And heaven forbid, where is the mother of the bride going to sit? There are a lot of problems in this! For certain.
It is a long time coming, but what is going to be on the next legal threshing floor? Will someone try and become a partner with alimony benefits and child support for a child begotten with a turkey baster. Really? And is this important enough for discernment in gay dating?

It was a bright, clear spring day, and the bees were buzzing, While momma told me to stay away from the flowers Harrogate blooming in her garden; I couldn’t resist to flounder innocently among the colorful petals. As I entered the “no fly zone”, a subtle, quiet hum filled my ears. Little did I know that in a few seconds that hum would be the warning signal to drop everything and run. The glorious colorful garden attracted the honey bees for our apple farm, and that buzz was coming from 200 bees or so. It only took one sniff of my curious nose to understand the imminent danger I poised. As soon as my nose touch the sweet center of the purple petals, a sharp stinging sensation jabbed deep into my nose. Jolted by the pain, I hurdled over the gate, ran to momma, and exclaimed “the petals are under attack!”

It was time to face it: sounds were starting to run together. Since I like being able to understand people, especially my kids, it was time to do something about it. I headed in to the store and picked up one of those ear wax removal Stockport kits, hoping that would be all it took to restore me to normal hearing.
You know what they don’t tell you about those kits? They’re messy. Sure, there’s something kind of satisfying about hearing that soft crackle as the wax in your ears breaks up, and it’s a relief to see all that wax landing in the sink. It’s also a good idea, however, to remember to either throw a towel over your shoulders or accept that you’re going to have to change your shirt afterward, because wax-filled water goes everywhere. Or maybe that’s just me? On the bright side, I could hear again.

I had been frustrated for a long time with the fact that I couldn’t seem to get anyone to visit my webpage. I was trying to sell things, but I couldn’t even get anyone to pay attention to what I had to offer. Then, I signed up with a new web design agency and suddenly the business is pouring in.
My site has brought in so many customers. I have grown so much since I had things newly designed. I am so happy with the change. I really cannot say enough about how this new website has changed my life and my business. It is amazing! I really just can’t stop talking about it. Before I updated my site I thought that I was stuck, now I am constantly drawing in new customers and receiving all kinds of positive feedback.

I started carpentry school today and am shocked at all the things I still had to learn. One of the things I was shocked by was a pea shingle. I have never heard of it before in my lifetime! I also learned about different sawing techniques, that are done in more of an old fashioned way. Honestly my favorite thing about my teacher is that he loves to do things the old school way, so it gives me a chance to learn everything all over again. My class runs for a year so I will have plenty of time to learn all of these little things I was unaware of. Once those things are down pact I will be well on my way to becoming a professional carpenter. Once that happens I can than start my own business with employees of my own.

My dream of owning a graphic design business had come true. I had my equipment, knew what to do, and had a few customers. The problem started when the economy took a turn for the worse. My local customer base dwindled to less than 5 regulars. I was not making ends meet.
I was about to consider bankrupting the business when a friend of mine mentioned search engine optimization. I did have a website that was full of my beautiful designs, but the site was getting no traffic. My friend said that this company did cheap SEO business and that their turnaround was fast.
In less than 2 weeks I had quadrupled the traffic on my website, and added few new clients. In a month I had enough business to pay the bills again.
