Make Sure You Get the Right Electricians

I only stumbled over the fact that I needed a level 2 electrician by pure accident. I am expanding my business and recently purchased a rather rundown warehouse that needed significant upgrades to get it up to code. In order to save money, I am acting as the contractor. That means I have to hire all the people who will come in and do the work to get the building up to snuff. I thought I could just hire any old electrician to come in and check the wiring and make any necessary repairs. Boy was I wrong!

As I looked online for people to do the work, I noticed something about a level 2 electrician. (more…)

Get Rid of the Frizz with Simply Straight Brush

I live on the East Coast of the United States and have found that the humidity wreaks havoc on my hair. I have very fine hair that turns into a great big ball of frizz when it is humid outside. I have always been very self-conscious about the “frizz ball” and have tried nearly every product the market that promises to tame the frizzy hair. Unfortunately, none of them seemed to work for me. This was very frustrating, to say the least. I went to the Simply Straight Store after seeing an infomercial on TV about a product called simply straight brush . It was affordable so I decided to give it a try and immediately ordered it.

I’m typically not one to make impulsive purchases from my television. I hope I didn’t make a mistake by purchasing this new brush. I patiently waited for it to arrive in the mail. (more…)

I Know How Important It is to Watch Children Now

I lost my son when he was just 10 years old because I gave him too much freedom. I am now very watchful of what my daughter is doing at all times. She understands why this needs to be the case, and I have told her repeatedly that I need to make sure that, as her mother, it’s my job to keep her safe. She uses her favorite chat app nightly, and I use a Snapchat Hack app to check up on her. I have not told her that I’m doing thi for the reason that I want to feel free to act if she normally does when she uses it. I’m pleased to say that she uses it in a mature fashion, and there are no problems.

When I was growing up, my parents were very overprotective. This made me rebel. It also made my brother repeal, too. I swore up and down that when I had children of my own that I would let them have more freedom. I didn’t want them to live the overprotective life me and my brother and I grew up in. So when I had children of my own, that is exactly the type of parent that I was. (more…)

Finding the Information You Want Online Quicker

I look all over the Internet for information on how to do things. I know the search engines do their best with their available algorithms to categorize stuff to make it easier to find. However, people posting the content make it tough to find their stuff at times by not using good keywords. Then again, I think some of us type in a search for stuff using uncommon search terms. I probably do that myself. Anyway, I have found interesting tips, tricks and trends at Infoboil. This helps me to get information in one central location. I do not like having to go through my normal ritual of trying the various search engines and then checking for how-to videos on the video sites. (more…)

They Do the Best Job Keeping Us Warm

Having facility management hvac in New York City has saved our company so much money it isn’t even funny. Everyone who runs their own company probably doesn’t think about things like thermostats all that much. It’s like the lighting in that if it works, it’s good enough. As long as the bill isn’t breaking your bank account, you are unlikely to give it much thought. Keeping your employees warm in the winter and cool in the summer is usually good enough to keep productivity up and that is good for the bottom line. But what happens when you realize you are paying too much?

That’s what happened to me and the problem largely came from specific employees. (more…)

I’m Enjoying Decorating My Home with My Mom’s Help

One of my favorite things is to go to all the different home decor stores with my mom. For years, neither one of us spent any time decorating our homes, but now we are spending a lot of time together getting caught up and helping each other out. Last week, we went to a store that has a lot of rugs for sale from many different countries. It was astounding to see so many rugs in just one store for purchase! I would say that we spent a few hours in there looking at as many as possible. We will also be helping one another out with picking out furniture and more, too.

I have not always so close to my mom. I got married young, and the guy that I married was in the military. So, I traveled around quite a bit with my husband untl recently. (more…)

A New Parking Lot and Sidewalks

I needed to hire a paving contractor in Nassau County NY but I had no idea which one to contact. There are just so many different businesses that do this kind of work, so I had to really research the top ones who were recommended to me by various people. When I saw Creative Masonry and started looking at what they offer and the prices that they start at, I knew that they were the ones we were going to go with. We had a lot of work that needed to be done, and they were the right company to do it.

I had purchased an old restaurant at a great price, which is the reason we even needed this work done in the first place. (more…)

We Wanted to Restore an Old Fighter Plane

We fly old planes for air shows. Some of these aircraft look like they are new, but they were made back during WWII. We were looking to add an old Hawker Sea Hawk to our fleet, but I had never flown a plane that uses a cartridge to start the engine. The cartridge is an explosive that drives a turbine to start your airplane. Unlike your car that starts with the turn of a key, airplanes have different and sometimes very complicated starting procedures. I did an NSN lookup to see if we could still get the cartridges made to OEM specs to get that old engine turning every time we wanted to fly.

Some collectors and flight groups probably make their own stuff or have it made by experts. (more…)
