Extra Money from Old Home Copper

I helped one of my uncles do a tear down job of a home that was scheduled to be demolished. He told me that I could take as much scrap as I could carry, because no one else would be using it. I got as much copper metal from the home and put it into a container to take home with me. I knew the copper would be pretty valuable out of all the metal that was in the home, which is why I went for it. I checked the price of scrap copper on my phone and after the tear down was done, I headed over to the metal yard to exchange it all for cash. Continue reading

Why We Got Established at an Urgent Care Center

Earaches in kids are one of those things where you need a doctor. It is great if it happens early in the morning, and your doctor can see you the same day. However, they usually happen late or on a weekend or holiday. Then you have the choice of the ER or the urgent care center. The insurance copays for the ER are almost always a lot higher for most people. Sprained ankles and a simple fracture are other reasons you need a doctor, and they often involve kids, and they often rarely need the services of an ER.

Those bad colds, the flu, sinus infections, rashes and other things that plague normal childhoods and even adulthoods are other things you need a doctor for. And they are things where you want to be seen ASAP, not tomorrow or next week. This is why our family is established at a local urgent care center. The doctors there know us. Continue reading

An Accident with Long Lasting Consequences

I was injured at a school event that I went to for my daughter. The accident was completely avoidable, and the school was definitely negligent in allowing it to happen. I did receive an apology from the superintendent, and the school offered to cover my medical expenses, but that was it. I am not a gold digger, but that was just not good enough for me. I was going to have a permanent injury because of their negligence, and I decided to contact a Sacramento personal injury attorney just to get a professional and legal opinion on if I should drop it or if I had a case.

Replacement for a Blown Server

I teach a computing class at a local center. The class isn’t your typical computing class, as the information is much more advanced beyond learning how to type and using the Internet. The class deals with networking and teaching students enough information so they can pass a network certification test. For this class, I use a rack server hooked up to multiple computers for the students to practice. One day the existing server failed, but the hard drives were intact. I looked online for a place to buy rack servers with a minimal amount of shipping time, because I needed them by the next class.

The server broke on a Friday afternoon, so I had to order one quickly and have it in shipping before 5pm or it wouldn’t arrive on time without the use of expedited shipping, which can be pretty expensive, especially with something as large as a rack server. Continue reading

Making a Company Website That Properly Displays on Every Device

Websites need to be fully responsive to the device they are displaying on. I do not think there is any quicker way to get potential customers to click away from your website than to have a site that does not display properly on the devices they are using. And since most people are accessing websites from their mobiles nowadays, we looked for help from a company that does mobile website design in Brisbane to bring our company’s domain up to modern standards.

You have to think that there are customers out there using mobile devices from tablets to laptops and cellular phones. That is a lot of different screen real estate for your website to be seen on. Some screens are tall and narrow while other ones are wide and rather short for height. Continue reading

Store That Sells Wrestling Shirts for Sale

I really like wrestling, but I am not as big of a fan of it now as I was when I was a kid. I used to watch it every time it came on and I was a huge fan of Sting, who was my favorite wrestler for a long time. Too bad it seemed like he did not make very many appearances. I am trying to find a wrestling shirts store that has a large selection of shirts for different wrestlers, both past and present, and I hope that I can find some that look pretty awesome. I want to buy a few of them because my son is now watching wrestling and he is becoming a big fan.

I want to get him some shirts of wrestlers that I used to watch when I was younger, and I am not sure if I will be able to find all of the shirts that I want to get, but I will give it a shot. I used to have a really cool shirt of Sting, when he was part of the NWO Wolf Pack, witht he read face paint on, instead of his more usual black and white. It was a pretty cool shirt, but I can’t remember too much else about it, other than the fact that I think he was pointing a baseball bat. Anyway, I don’t think that it is very likely that I am going to be able to find that shirt again, but it would be really neat if I could find it. I guess I’ll have to wait and see, and anyway, even if I am not able to find that shirt in particular, I do think that I will be able to find some other wrestling shirts I think are pretty cool.

The Civil Path Will Take Effort

Since I have some free time and money this summer, I’m going to be taking classes in civil engineering. The classes will prepare me for a career as a designer of architecture. To prepare for the classes, I’ve been looking at some civil engineering websites, and the material looks like it won’t be easy to learn. I’ve taken some hard courses in my day, but this looks like something entirely different. Maybe I’m just over thinking everything and the course will be easier to understand once I actually start taking it. It could all be in my mind, but if not, I’m going to need some extra help.

Usually when I encounter a course that I find to be hard, I ask the teacher for help before going into panic mode. Continue reading

Bow Ties Are Always Cool

I’ve been a big science fiction nerd for as long as I can remember. My favorite show is Doctor Who. I’ve loved that show for years. When they introduced the eleventh doctor and he uttered his catch phrase, “Bow ties are cool” I became obsessed with bow ties too. I started my collection with a simple burgundy red one, similar to the one the doctor wears. Next I found my absolute favorite bow tie and it’s made of feathers. Before I found by beautiful blue tie, I didn’t even realize you could get a feather bow tie. I’ve worn it several conventions and I always get compliments on it.

My favorite hobby right now is coming up with new ways to cos-play as the doctor with my bow ties. Of course, I always have to have my trusty suspenders. Sometimes I will wear a checked button down with it and some jeans and combat boots. Continue reading

Limo Ride for University Tour Day

I have two best friends in the neighborhood where I grew up. Now that it is time to choose a university to attend after our senior year, my friends and I were hoping to attend the same place. We were all quite adamant about staying close to home. We were not sure if we wanted to commute or have the dorm experience. We were planning on visiting three local campuses when my dad went to and rented us a limousine for our college tour day. We were going to spend the whole day and evening visiting out three top choices.

We got an early start. We were at the office of the first university by eight in the morning. We had a tour of the campus, and the person selected to give us the tour thought that the limo was a really nice touch. She said that she wished her dad was as thoughtful. Continue reading

Learning to Promote My Web Site

This web site is something that I have been working on for a couple of months. The idea is pretty simple, I would like to supplement my income enough so that I could afford to do some of the things that I want to do. However after a bit I realized that I need to be able to market my site if I expect to get the results that I want. I went out on the web to look for help and I found a lot of guys like Ewen Chia who claim that you can make millions if you do what they tell you to do. In fact I have no idea if this all a lot of hot air or if this guy is really as brilliant as he claims that he is. I have been thinking about it and trying to figure out how it is done, in the hopes that I might be able to figure out how to get the job done on my own. That is a lot harder than I would have liked for it to be. It involves something that they call search engine optimization or SEO. Continue reading
