Longing for More New Music from My Homeland

I like songs. My problem is that I like to listen to the songs a couple of times before I buy them. I strongly support paying for the music you download. I do get free songs now and again when certain sites I belong to offer them. However, those are few and far between. What I like to do for my world music is to go to a baixar mp3 site and listen to music from different parts of the world. When I find what I like, I buy it. If I do not really care for it, I make sure I do not listen to it anymore or have it on my phone.

I think there should be more ways to find and listen to music from around the world. (more…)

Goodbye to the Apple Tree

Having a fruit tree in your yard is a convenience, but it can also be annoyance. For years I had an apple tree that would produce some of the sweetest apples. The birds and squirrels would pick at the apples and take little bites out of each one, leaving a yard of discarded apples. The few that were left grew, I picked them. I would also have to deal with web worms making webs in the tree. Eventually the tree died off, and I called tree removal in Long Island to get the remains of the tree out of my yard so that I could plant a new one.

The tree removal service cut the tree into smaller parts to make it easier to take away. Once they were left with nothing but a stump, they asked me if I wanted to leave the stump behind and grind it down, or have it dug up from the yard. Leaving the stump behind would have left me with an area that I couldn’t use for anything. On the other hand, having the tree dug up would have ruined a part of my yard for a short period of time, at least until the grass was able to grow back. I decided that it would be best for me to dig up the tree.

once the tree was completely dug up, I could see how far into the ground the roots had grown. I filled the hole with some dirt, and planted some grass seeds to grow in its place. The removal service hauled away the remnants of the tree and I was left without any more apples to eat for that season. I’m not sure if I want to have another apple tree or if I should go with something better than apples.

Upgrading My Home Decor After a Storm

Our apartment building took a beating from the last round of inclement weather that came through the city. The people on the top floor reported leaking from the roof as the rain poured down. Our building manager immediately contacted someone about roof installation in Manhattan NY, and had someone come and fix it within the hour. We were all really impressed that their response time was that fast, especially considering that the inclement weather was probably causing issues for people all over the region. We’re all thankful that they were able to help us out so quickly.

Those residents who were affected by the storm had to start some home improvement projects around their homes in order to repair the storm damage. In addition to repairing the roof, they also had work done on their floors. (more…)

Was Surprised to Find Someone to Help!

I went with my father to New York to help my aunt pack up her moving van. My boyfriend lived out there, so I ended up staying at his house for the weekend. I got to his house and thought I was going to die. It was almost a hundred degrees in his house, and he was in the basement right next to the water heater. He said that their air conditioning unit had broken earlier that week and they hadn’t been able to find someone. I looked for ac repair in Manhattan, NY.

I found a good bit of repairmen, but they all wanted to charge me my first born child. He told me to forget about it, his dad would just have to do it when he had a day off. I just don’t understand how they were living in this heat like that. His mother is handicapped and needs oxygen at all times, so I know she was having issues breathing because of the heat.

It took some digging, but I ended up finding someone willing to help us. They were kind about their prices too, knowing that we had a handicapped person in the house that needed oxygen. I didn’t have to fork up my first born child, or any limbs in order for them to come down and repair the unit. It was a miracle I was even able to find anyone willing to come down and fix it on a weekend, but I guess I just got lucky.

The funny thing is I hadn’t even found them by searching online or in the phone book. We were at the grocery store and someone heard me saying that our air conditioner had died and offered his services. He had just started his own business and was still trying to get some clientele. We were happy to give him a good review after he helped us!

I Remember when the Only Internet We Had Was Dial-Up

I can remember when we had dial-up Internet. When we upgraded to a modem that was twice as fast, it was amazing for us at the time. Back then we could not even view a photo. It just took too long to download. The graphics were simple so they could download fast. The first broadband Internet we got was incredibly fast for what the Internet could do at the time. Now the Internet and devices connected at home are surpassing what service level some folks have. We like our AT&T Internet service because we can all be doing whatever we want on the Internet without any slowdowns or that dreaded “buffering” notice. (more…)
