It had been cool for the past couple of months, and so I kind of forgot that I needed to get my air conditioning fixed, because I would not have turned it on, even if it was working. I am looking for AC repair in NYC that will be cheap and effective. Really, I do not want to have to pay too much for the service, and I am hoping that I will not have to pay too much. I have had it repaired before, where I paid more than I wanted to pay, and it ended up breaking again a couple weeks later. (more…)
The growth of the root system of a certain type of plant caused me to rely on drain cleaning in Rockland County NY. The roots grew so much that they started to enter the pipes in my home. When this happens, the roots act as a filter, catching anything that is too big to go between the spaces of the roots. In the absence of the roots, this debris would just keep going through the drain until it reaches the endpoint. This is common in homes that have fairly old plumbing systems, and the roots can grow undetected.
In order to stop the root blockage, the drain cleaning company had to stick a tool into the pipe that would wiggle around to pull the roots away, along with the trapped debris. Identifying the root source can be tricky, because it can be caused by trees, but sometimes other plants can be the culprit. The first time this happened with my pipes, I thought it was caused by an old pine tree and had it cut down and killed. The roots continued to grow, meaning that another tree was actually the cause. The only other tree that it could have been is the persimmons tree.
I can’t get rid of the persimmons tree, because I eat the fruit that it bears. At best, all I can do is clear the roots away each time that they grow back. I could try to have the tree moved to a different part of my yard, but that may be bad for the tree. There is no guarantee that the tree will be able to survive a move. The entire tree would have to be dug up, and a new hole would have to be made for it. The rest of the tree’s roots would be traumatized, and it might not get enough sunlight in a new location.
I started a software company to sell my creations, but the market wasn’t too receptive of my software. I did research to find out why I wasn’t getting the customers I wanted. Using a survey, I found out that most people thought my software was much too expensive for them. They were able to find cheaper alternatives that served much of their purposes. I had to go back to the drawing board with my pricing. I thought about breaking up the software and selling it in pieces, but I realized that SaaS marketing for a full product would be a better option.
Splitting apart the software would have only drove the customers away more, and angered the ones that I already have, because people would feel cheated by having to buy multiple parts just to get a complete product. (more…)
It was my neighbor who got me to call the number I saw on the side of the van, and I had not even talked with him yet. He said he had some rotting of wood going on at one corner of his house. He thought water had gotten in and caused it. I saw the building contractor show up, and then, a couple of days, later termite removal in New York City showed up. I knew what the problem was as soon as I saw their van. It was not rotting wood, it was wood that was being eaten by termites!
His house is right next door, so I called and asked the same folks if they could come out to our house and do an inspection. Termites do not just pick one house at the exclusion of others. If you got a nest outside, then all of the houses nearby are vulnerable. (more…)
I know that a lot of people may think that women who are considering enlarging their breasts are vain, but I know the other side of that argument. I have suffered from low self esteem for a very long time because of my boyish figure. Even though it was 10 years ago, I still remember the painful taunts from my high school days. I was so tired of being unhappy, but I was not willing to go under the knife either. I thought I was doomed to be this way until I saw http://www.breastenlargementresource.com/naturaful/.
I have heard of breast enhancement creams before, but I really never paid a lot of attention to them. I honestly did not think that they worked. I am sure that there are quite a few that don’t, but I know for a fact that the one I finally tried does. (more…)
I registered for a shortcode to be able to send texts to our customers who wanted to receive information from us. We would offer specials to customers who opted in to receive texts from us. Most of the outgoing texts were links to coupons and other things on our website reserved exclusively for them. However, we still had a low retention rate for people who would text the necessary word to the shortcode number to opt in. That was when we looked at Mobile Optin. We needed to learn how to do this right. The goal was to build the marketing base that was using the shortcode not lose them after a month or so.
We found out that we were sending too many texts. (more…)
Committing to a diet is tough. I said years ago that if someone prepared the food I was to eat each day and then served it and only it to me, then I would succeed at losing weight. Well, the diets that have the food prepackaged in specific portions for each meal are just that. All you have to do is open them, heat them and eat. They have full entrees, side dishes, desserts and snacks to round out a whole day of eating. Learning this got me looking for Medifast coupon codes to get started right away.
I was excited at the opportunity to finally have some control. (more…)
When my cousin asked me who my dentist is, I asked her why. She has been going to the same dentist in Wollongong for as long as I can remember, but I never did go there myself because I felt that their methods were too old fashioned. I prefer going to a dentist that I feel extremely comfortable with, and one that I know has modern training! Well, she told me that her dentist had retired, and she wanted to find a new one so she could schedule her cleaning that was nearly due.
I had no problem recommending my dentist to her. I have been going to the same one for years, and everyone in the office is extremely friendly and quite knowledgeable. (more…)
I have always loved the lush trees around our house. I just let them grow as they pleased for many years. I am a nature person, and I have never really thought much about cutting things back all that much. But a recent event taught me just how important tree pruning in Queens County, NY is when a storm comes through.
We have a tree that is about 45 feet tall and very wide. There have been times that storms come through and knock very large branches off. None of them hit our cars parked below, and now that most of the really long ones have fallen off with past storms, I did not think much about it. That changed recently, though.
I was asleep, and my husband came rushing in to wake me up. He was stunned that I had not heard any loud noises. (more…)
It is hard to grow a company. There are so many people and firms out there wanting to give and sell you advice. You don’t have to look far to see someone who has put out a shingle saying they are this kind of expert or that kind of professional business consultant. We were making the first foray into international marketing. My head was reeling just trying to understand the laws of doing business in Brazil, let alone other countries. Across every border are unique rules and laws. We thought we had some confusion about selling our products in some states. California had all kinds of regulations. Doing business in other countries takes a team of experts on your side to make sure you don’t get into any regulatory messes. (more…)
My mom asked me how we are able to record all of our favorite shows even when three or more of them come on at the same time on the same evening. I told her that we have a modern satellite receiver box from DirecTV that lets us record or watch a combo of up to at least five things. She looked into getting that option with her cable TV provider, and they wanted a whole lot of money each month to provide the service. I told her to look into Direct TV plans and prices. She probably could get an introductory price that would go up over two years but still save her money based on what she is currently paying for her cable.
I have seen the cable company commercials warning about a two year commitment with satellite and how the price goes up for the second year. Well, it really is simple math. We paid a really low price for the first year, then we paid a higher price for our second year. (more…)
