Allred insurance

Recently my husband was working in North Carolina. Some of the guys that rode down there with him decided to buy vehicles there because back in New York the salt that they use on the roads creates a lot of rusty vehicles. So the vehicles in the Carolina's as long as they're not on the coast are pretty much rust free. Luckily they had a few days to find  allred insurance. They brought back three beautiful vehicles from the 1970's.u

Engagement rings

I couldn't believe the day when my older step daughter announced to her dad and I that her boyfriend and her were looking at engagement rings. I told her that they were too young to think about engagement rings after all  she was only seventeen. Yes they have been dating  for a year but she was still too young. After her father talked to the boyfriend he found out that it was a pure pressure thing brought on by his daughters girlfriends.

Order one

The family band get together the other night was a great turn out everybody showed up. What I didn't expect was my sister to be in town and wanting to join in with my niece. After having fun jamming together we had a great barbecue boy it tasted good anyhow. It was cold outdoors. But anyhow my sister informed me that my niece is looking into a nice base guitar and she says to me I should order one  and I said I think it's your turn.

Free Business Cards

It was tough starting out in business years ago in this dog eat dog world of contracting. We were a small business contractor fighting for a space in the big business world of home remodelling. It wasn't just enough that we priced our self on excellent work. We needed to find a niche in the business so people would remember us and turn to us for our uniqueness. One of the things that we gave out was free estimates and of course our free business cards. With the energy crunch going on across the world, we decided to step into the blown-in-insulation business. We had more repeat business when we gave away a magnetic card that also had a thermometer on it. A lot of people told us that by sticking it on the refrigerator is where they used our telephone number to contact us.

Marketing Page

At the estate auction we were at the other day they had three guitars that we were interested in and as auctions go you never know who will be interested in them. Two out of three in them we won easily and of course the one we really wanted was a fight on price but we got it. For the bid that we had picked for are maximum. Now with the little help from the Marketing Page we are in hopes of finding the proper parts to fix these.

Fall auction

We decided to take a fall drive up North to look at the fall foliage the other day. On our way up north we were distracted by an estate auction going on. Its so much fun picking through everything and we ended up leaving with quite a few treasures that we had won at the auction.

Burlap tablecloth - fringed

Travelling all over the State of New York to the different fairs can be a lot of fun during the summer. Twenty years ago it was a lot easier we were the only ones within a couple hundred miles offering  the different styles of  burlap tablecloth - fringed. The Great New York State Fair brought on a lot of different challenges for making our display. All in all our sales were up because the last day was great for sales.

Translation company

My neighbor was telling me of some of his very unique adventures from years ago. He was part of a cardio vascular team that had come up with  a revolutionary new technique. Living in the United States it was a lot tougher to do the things that they wanted to do. One of the first places that they went to was China. Sometimes it was very tough to get the translation across to other doctors. Using a translation company as a double insurance back up was the best way to make sure everyone was receiving the same information. All information was typed twice over and each individual involved compared the two translations to make sure it was correct. It was so important when it comes to implants to have all the information correct as you can see when it comes to saving the lives of people. There were over eighty pages that were translated by two different people and typed out in their own format. Now when you take into consideration there was fourteen different people reading this and comparing each one and then having questions at the end. It took quite a few days to get through this one procedure.

Swedish keyboards

Trying to have a full time job and helping the kids practice in the band is a lot of work. Before we started the band I didn't sleep very good at night but now I had to trouble getting about six hours every night. With doing all the shopping around online to replace some of our older equipment its getting really tiresome for me. One thing for sure is I can't take my eyes off from the swedish keyboards I've seen. If I buy one of these I think there's going to be a fight between the kids as to who plays it first.

Digital clocks

My husband was telling me of years ago when he went out on a trip with a friend of his down to Florida. Of course the first stop was Walt Disney World. My husband went on and on about Walt Disney how he began and how many amazing achievements he had done over the years with the help of many technicians to create Disney World. He was trying to explain to me about all the digital clocks that are in sync to control most of the rides.

Blue advantage nc

Years ago there was a ring on our phone, it was my brother in law calling to speak to my husband. He wanted to know if my husband would fly down to North Carolina to run a backhoe for a few weeks. My husband left that next Monday. After he was down there for a week his brother told him that he just received the contract for another forty in ground swimming pool installations. While my husband was there he purchased  blue advantage NC. It would be almost a year before all the jobs were done. My husband every other Friday would fly home to New York to spend the weekend with us.

Classical guitars

All my life I've wanted to learn to play a guitar and it never  seems like I've had a time to do it. What I really love are the classical guitars my father in law gave his to my husband when he passed away years ago. My husband only  opens them up to show friends once in a while. He says as our son grows older maybe if he respects them he may be able to play them.

Strobe lights

A few years back a neighbor of ours was telling us how none of his kids could come up with what they really wanted for Christmas besides a couple little things. He spent the weekend searching the malls for regular gifts and thought that they were too boring. He ended up buying his son two strobe lights. His one daughter two black lights the other daughter a small disco light and the karaoke machine. Now down in the basement its such a riot when they decide to have a dance party.

Gold Rush

Watching the "gold rush" shows just makes you have gold fever. My husband says if he had an extra one hundred thousand dollars he would actually go this year and give it a shot. We will make it a limit to what we spend and how long we would stay if possible. But once you catch gold fever its hard to get rid off.

Leaky roof

Every other day my husband has to go to my mother in law's house to shovel the snow off the roof. Its been snowing so hard in CNY that we're worried about the snow weight on mom's roof. Two weeks ago the edge of the roof built up with ice and created a leak inside that ruined a small section of the ceiling. We dried everything out with fans. We will have to wait 'till spring to fix everything.

Looking for a job

My husband's been looking for a job for a while and as he checks out all the jobs close to home online he is in disbelief of what qualifications they want for such trivial job. The other thing is the hourly rate. After losing his job at a big company because they close down some of the jobs he looks at online he made that amount of money twenty years ago. So ridiculous.

Don Allred insurance quotes

My husband had gone many many years no tickets no accidents his license was in great shape. One day my husband and my son decided to go to Harbor Freight. As they were leaving he went to turn left and a car going very fast pulled in front of him and my husband hit the car. They determined my husband was at fault but no tickets were issued. Now our insurance has gone up 12 percent. Time to look into don allred insurance quotes hopefully we can find something more reasonable.

1999 Isuzu Vehi-Cross Ironman lives again

A few years ago we put our truck in a storage. It is only one of approximately 3,000 left in the world. There was only approximately 4300 ever made. A few years back the rear of the valve cover started leaking and before we could get it to the dealers it started with small fires underneath. Of all places the oil landed on the main wiring harness. I finally got the time to rewire it underneath so the Isuzu Vehi-Cross lives again. Let's hope for a long time.

Pinched nerve problem

My husband had a flat tire the other day it was minus 10 wind chill with the snow blowing . Our spare tire is mounted on the back of the truck. As he went to take the bolts out of it to remove it one bolt snapped and the other bold spinning. He had no choice but to grab on the edge of the spare tires and kept on slamming it back and forth 'till the last bolt snapped. When the bolt snapped the tire went down and my husband went down on the ground. After fixing the truck the very next day when he went to get out of the bed he was almost screaming in pain because he had pinched the nerve in his lower back that goes down the entire length of his leg. The only was to fix this for now is to wait and see if it fixes itself.

DJ David fox

Two years ago at our work Christmas party we had a DJ that played some okay music. The music that they played should have been more updated for some of the younger crowd that was there. Just last year someone decided that we needed a band. It was a nice band if you like Jazz and you're at least sixty years old but not for us. Next time I am going to recommend DJ David fox to take care of all of our music needs for the party.

Paper shredder

Maybe these days we have so much paper work that needs to be shredded in our household. It builds up so fast that one week there's at least thirty pieces of paper to be shredded. After ten years our old shredder finally died the other day. The prices of shredders have for sure dropped in price over the years. The one at Wal-mart we just bought was under 25 dollars and instead of going to Wal-mart I had it shipped to the house for free by adding one other office thing that I needed.
