Getting My Yard Cleaned Up After a Wind Storm

I had to call a Nassau County tree service company after a severe wind storm came through and damaged a lot of trees. It even knocked over a 100-year-old maple tree that was one of my favorites. I didn’t call them right away. I thought the downed branches and toppled trees were something I could [...]

Woven is the Best Style

I have had the same type of rugs in my house for over twenty years. They are woven and are made by hand and thus are of amazing quality. I love the way that the carpets are weathered and from what I hear, people are actually paying for the look of older and distressed carpets. [...]

A Mechanical Keyboard is Preferred for Gaming

I always thought that a really good mechanical gaming keyboard would be wireless, mainly because of the convenience of being able to move around with it.

I Like the Way I Feel Now

When a person is overweight, they are typically not ignorant to the fact that they need to lose weight. I think if it was something that is easy to do, obesity would not even exist in our world today. Since it does though, and I was having a hard time with my own excess pounds, [...]

We Both Get Fancied Up

One of the things that I remember most about my mom when I was a kid is how much she loved to get fancied up. That was her term for it, and I grew to love those times. As I got older, she would help me look my best too, whether I was just going [...]

Dog Owners Will Love This

By far, one of the most creative and funny things I’ve seen is socks with your dogs face on them. It’s so simple that anyone could have thought of it, but I never did, and many other people didn’t. It’s something that I didn’t know I wanted until I actually saw a pair. My dog [...]

Pots Can Even Make Cake

I can’t believe how quickly these easy Instant Pot recipes cook in my new Instant Pot. I’ve had the pot for a month now and anything I throw at it will cook. I wanted to give the pot a challenge, so I looked up something that would probably not be normally made in such a [...]

Helping Our Seniors Stay Young at Heart

My wife and I volunteer at a senior center here in the city. We both have a heart for the elderly because we were raised to respect all people. It seems that the older a person becomes in our society, the more they are ignored for the most part. My wife and I wanted to [...]

Getting Help to Make Physics a Career

My toughest classes in school were all about math. Not the concepts and theories of math. Just working the problems. I perplexed my teachers in that I understood theories but had trouble with the problems. I had the same trouble in physics when it came to working out specific problems. I could ask questions about [...]
