I have been looking for apartments all day, and I found a website for an apartment complex that I kind of like. I am excited that I am going to be moving to Portland, because it is my favorite city on the whole west coast. I got a job offer in the area, and that was probably the happiest day of my life. It is going to be a pretty good job. It won’t start out amazing, at least in terms of the pay rate, but there is a lot of potential for me to move up within the company, and I think that I will be able to do that without too much trouble. It is actually the sort of job that I have been hoping to get for over a year, and it has finally happened. I do not get this lucky every day, and I am thinking about celebrating a little bit later on today. Continue reading

My grandmother lived with me for the last five years. She was unable to live on her own, so I invited her to my place. I only work part time, so that means that I could watch her most of the day to keep her safe and give her the help that she needed. When she passed away last month, I found myself unable to pay for her to be cremated. I needed quick cash immediately and was unsure of what to do at first.
I started up an account at one of those funding sites that they have these days where you can explain your plight right on the page, state how much you need, share the URL with everyone you know, and then hope that they make donations. My friends are great, and they did offer some help, but not enough for what I needed. I needed $3,500, and the donations I received only reached $1,500. Continue reading
I have not lived in Texas since I was a kid. I moved back here with my wife a few months ago. There was not a whole lot that was familiar to me. So much has changed, but that is how it goes when you try to go home again. Isn’t that what they say? You know, how you can never truly go home again. My brother had to update me on everything including the things that were different here than where we lived back east. For one thing, he told me, Texas energy companies are now by consumer choice here where we got a house.
We had no choice in our electric company where we came from. I did not even understand how it worked. I mean I’m thinking of how could they run new wires to your house when there are only so many power lines that run through town. I felt kind of dumb after it was explained to me. My brother told me that it was all in the production and the billing. The same wires and meters carry the same electricity. It is just who you buy it from.
Say there are 10 electric producers. Continue reading
If you’ve kept up with the Ukraine News, you know that the political disaster has crippled society. While a man made disaster, we can learn a lot from natural disasters and how to survive them. Natural disaster will always be a problem. For the most part there is no way of knowing when something awful will happen. The only thing that we can do is being prepared. There are many things to do in preparation for such things happening, as well as many things that can be done after the fact. If the disaster happens in one specific area, people in other areas can do things to help victims of the incident. Some things can be done for when disaster strikes, is to have a modular home so the victims can take temporary residence in. Even custom modular homes can help a family more than anything else.

Ever since I purchased my home three years ago, I have been trying to grow a vegetable and flower garden. Since I have so much space in my backyard, I thought it would be a good idea to grow my own flowers, cabbage and tomatoes. However, I have tried planting a garden at least four or five times, and each time my seeds never grow out of the ground. Needless to say I was becoming very frustrated, so I decided to go on the internet with hopes of finding an online gardening club. I had initially thought about joining a local neighborhood gardening community, but I really wouldn’t have the time to attend any meetings or seminars due to my busy schedule. Continue reading
My lawn is fried a weird shade of brown and I am not all that concerned about it. We have had very little rain this year and I am not going to water it because I am somewhat worried about the local water table. We use a well, but I have heard about some of the people in this area having to drill new wells. What does concern me is my garden. I have been growing my own vegetables for as long as I can remember. My neighbors and I have a quarter of an acre planted in corn down the street and it is hardly worth looking at right now. We have decided to just chop the worst of it down and water the stalks which appear healthy enough to benefit.
I am watering some of my own garden, but what can not be saved I am just pulling up by the roots. It is better to save some of it than to lose it all. Continue reading
