Super Storm Sandy Left Us Breathless

My husband is from the Rockaways, that is a section of Queens in New York City and everyone who remembers Hurricane Sandy will know that the area and surrounding areas were literally knocked off their foundations. It is so scary to think what our family went through. They had to redo all of their homes as well as raise them up because it was going to be an upgrade to the current living code standards. Many people couldn’t even afford shower doors in Queens NY and then all of the sudden everyone was supposed to take their insurance money and raise their homes up another twenty feet or so and that was not a cheap thing to do.

I Needed Help with Birds

When I called my local government about a bird issue I was having, I was told that it was not something they would handle. They did tell me about a company that does bird control in Monmouth County NJ though, so I looked them up on the internet. I wanted to find someone to come help as soon as possible, but I still wanted to make sure that I was choosing the right company to come out and do it. Since I knew next to nothing about how to handle problematic birds, I knew that I was going to have to research my information carefully.

As soon as I started to read about the methods that this company uses for bird issues, I knew that it was the one I wanted to help me. I might have been upset over the birds causing havoc around my business, but I sure did not want to cause them any type of harm in getting rid of them. (more…)

Paying Respects to My Friend

Recently, I suffered a tragedy in my life. I recently lost one of best friends named Karl. He was always a good friend to me. He was the type of person that would give a person the clothes off his back to a person in need. Karl was know for his big heart. We considered him to be a gentle giant. When I heard that he passed away, I was sick to my stomach. I wanted to honor Karl for all the things that he did for me. I researched custom monuments in morris county nj. I felt that the least I could do for my friend is to send him off in style.

I first met Karl when I was third grade. There was a bully that picked on nerdy kids. The bully was named Don. He was pure evil. He would terrorize the kids in third grade. He had a bad reputation throughout the school. One day, Don started to come after me. He tried to take my vanilla pudding that my mom packed in my lunch. Karl quickly stepped and to help me. Don was intimidated by Karl’s large size. He did not want any trouble that day. Don never bothered me again.

Over the years, Karl and I became good buddies. (more…)

Moving Was the Right Decision

I have never been one to particularly like driving. Growing up in a big city, there was really never any need. I could take public transportation or walk anywhere I needed to go. When I got older and met people from other parts of the country, they were shocked i was in my thirties and still didn’t have a license. I figured I’d get around to it one day.

Needless to say, I never got around to it. Then I got a job offer in Singapore. Before I accepted it I had to research transportation services in Singapore. I was pleasantly surprised at the options that were available to me. They were both affordable and luxurious. (more…)
