I can remember when I was a kid and a huge storm came through the small town we lived in. Every town sees storms, but this one was bad and caused a lot of damage. I was hoping to never see another one like that, and I didn’t up until about a year ago. We got a huge storm though, and unfortunately there was a lot of damage. I happened to be one of the homeowners who needed to find a company that does roof installation in Brooklyn NY, and quickly at that.
I started calling around and explained my predicament to a few different roofing companies. (more…)
When we found evidence of termites, we needed an exterminator in NYC and we needed them yesterday. What really made me mad about the whole situation is that we just moved into this house about a year ago. That means it was inspected before the sale could be approved and no one said anything at all about a termite infestation. That is incredible to me. Termites will ruin a house faster than just about anything outside of a natural disaster. To miss something this obvious is proof that someone wasn’t doing there job. We’re considering a lawsuit.
The lawsuit aside, we still had to take action quickly against the problem. Letting termites continue to chew through the wood in your house isn’t an option. I could tell me had them, but I had no idea how long we had them or the extent of the damage. Maybe I caught it in time, but I had strong doubts about that. (more…)
Finding work outside the United States has long been a dream of mine. Now that President Trump has decided to take the American Dream and burn it to the ground until nothing is left but the shadow of the wall, I finally made the choice to call my new home Singapore. Massive Infinity in Singapore is one of those companies that are able to provide work for mobile developers like myself that absolutely need a change of pace. I can’t stand by and watch my beautiful country become corrupted by the idiocy that is our supposed President – a man who lost the popular vote but is somehow still our Commander in Chief.
Singapore knows what they’re about. (more…)
I have been in this part of the Silicon Valley for a couple of years now, of course in theory there is a lot of money to be made here and that is in spite of the fact that there is an utterly insane cost of living here. You can see a really ordinary house around here, just like the one you grew up in and it lists for well over a million dollars. Right now I am doing some work for a chiropractor in Campbell who dabbles in real estate. A lot of people do that around here, because you can really turn a profit on a job if you do things right. In fact a lot of the time they just tear down the house after they buy it. (more…)
When I moved into my new house, I was not able to afford to buy brand new furniture and appliances. I was able to get a nice living set and kitchen table from a thrift store, and I purchased a stove and fridge from a secondhand shop in town. It might not be much to some people, but it was huge for me. Everything was fine for the first few months, then one of the burners stopped working on my stove. I knew I needed to look up major appliance repair in Sacramento when a second burner stopped working.
I really liked the stove because it was still fairly new. I figured that it could be a really easy fix, or the repairman could tell me that I needed to junk it. I was really hoping for the first though. (more…)
