Just Started to Look for a Nicer Place

Posted by David M. Bennett on with No Comments

Just started to look for a nicer place this morning. It is not totally my idea, but I am going to move in to a new place with my girl and she is not going to stand for the place I am living at now. It has advantages, first of which is that it is cheap. Me, my cousin Alfie and one of our friends are sharing it and we have a good deal on it. If you click here you can see the sort of Century Link deal that we have, although that is probably not going to suffice when I get a new place. Read more…

Audacity for Making New Beats

Posted by David M. Bennett on with No Comments

I have a problem in that I do not have a license for the software that I used to use to edit music, and now I am without a way to make some of the new beats that I can hear in my mind. I need to get these beats down on a track as soon as possible, because even though I have a good memory, I am always paranoid that I am going to forget them. It has never happened before, but you never know. I would like to get Audacity on my computer to use it to make the beats. I have never used the program before, but after spending a couple of hours trying to find some reviews, and reading quite a number of different reviews, I have been able to find some information that suggests that this is indeed a good program to use for the type of things that I need it for.

That is good, but now i need to figure out where I am able to get this program, because I want to make sure that I can get it soon, and that I will not have to pay too much for it. I would like to either find a free download for the file, or I would like to find a way to get a free trial for it. I am not sure if it is the type of software that would be available for a free trial, but I can always hold out hope that I can get a free trial. I would prefer to just get it for free permanently, but I am not sure that is really an option. I will look around though, because who knows, sometimes you get lucky when you are on the internet looking for programs.

Exterior Painters Did a Great Job

Posted by David M. Bennett on with No Comments

When I decided to start fixing my house up, I made two lists. On the first list were things that I could do myself, such as repairing the back deck, cutting down a few small trees, and other things like that. On the second list, I wrote things down that I needed help with. There were only a few things on that list, but the main one was getting a company that does house painting in Morris County NJ because I wanted the entire exterior of my house painted.

Even if I was younger and in better health, I still would have saved this job for a professional. First off, my house is three stories tall with the attic on it. I don’t even have a ladder that would reach every crook and nanny of the house. Also, I am not a huge fan of heights. That is why my house is rarely decked out with Christmas lights, because there is no way I am putting them up there myself. Read more…

Just Got Back to Kentucky

Posted by David M. Bennett on with No Comments

I came back to the United States through Canada the other day. I have to do some stuff before they let me out of the 101st Air Mobile Division, but in essence I am going to be out in a couple of weeks. My girl and I are going to move to Lexington Kentucky. She is already enrolled in grad school at UK and I am going to start taking classes next semester. Of course I will probably join the U.S Army Reserves. That makes a lot of sense. You definitely want to put that behind you, but the reserves give you some real advantages and the stuff that you have to do is not all that tough. At least it is not much compared to being at the tip of the spear. When you are with the 101st you have a pretty good idea of where you are going to be if things go bad. If you are in a heavy maneuver unit, then it takes a lot of time for them to deploy you to where the trouble is. Read more…

Finding Opportunity Across the Globe

Posted by David M. Bennett on with No Comments

My first day in Singapore was a day that I couldn’t have ever imagined. Given an opportunity thanks to my brother who has been working in the city-state for several months now, I decided that I would take him up on his offer of coming for a visit. I didn’t know what to expect from Singapore – without a doubt, I imagine much of the world as a poorer place than the United States. It’s not like I mean to, it’s just how living here has altered my perception of things. Even told about FC maid that my brother had, I figured it was just a country full of individuals working for foreign companies.

Boy, was I wrong. Way wrong. When I touched down in an airport that would put most of America’s airports to shame, I realized that I was suddenly and incredibly wrong about everything that I had ever thought. Read more…

Thinking About Going on a Ski Vacation

Posted by David M. Bennett on with No Comments

The wife and I are going through the plans for our vacation, which we have decided to combine with Christmas this year. The idea is pretty simple, we would add our vacations to the time we get off for Christmas and for New Years and that would give us about two and a half weeks for a vacation in Europe. The basic idea would be to look at switzerland tour packages, but that would not mean that we would be married to the idea I do not think. It has been a good many years since I have been on a ski vacation and so I am not so sure that I would be able to manage it all that great if they did not put me on the bunny trail (I am not sure what they even call that at this point in time).

Finding the Best Insurance Rates in Pullman

Posted by David M. Bennett on with No Comments

These days it seems like people can buy insurance for literally anything. Musicians and athletes get insurance plans for their bodies, avid pet owners get insurance for their cats and dogs, and even travel agencies offer insurance for trips. These can all be useful at times, but one of the most important types of insurance is home insurance. Regardless of your income bracket, most homeowners have invested a serious portion of their earnings into housing. Sadly, all it takes is one untimely disaster or even a little mistake to bring this all to an end. Fortunately, pullman insurance rates are as affordable as ever with great discounts and a wide variety of plans that can be customized to meet each customer’s needs.

This means that whether you want coverage just for basic natural disasters or every detail down to liability coverage for injuries on your property, there are plans that will help put you at ease. Rather than leaving yourself open to financial disaster when you least expect it, these plans will help with everything from repairs and replacement to expenses incurred while your home is unusable. Of course with increased coverage there are higher premiums, so finding the right balance that suits your background is always important.

Of course when doing research it will be clear that companies offer different prices and levels of protection. Another factor to consider is that many offer discounts for various details involving risk mitigation and responsibility, such as smoke detectors and alarm systems. Not only do these types of systems help prevent damage and loss, but they also indicate a responsible homeowner. Responsibility indicators are crucial for getting the best rates, as everything from claim history to a good credit score can tilt future expectations in the homeowner’s favor, which will in turn lower prices.

Thinking About Getting Dental Implants

Posted by David M. Bennett on with No Comments

I started thinking about this after this friend of mine showed up one day, she had been to a place called Singapore coden specialists. It is one of those Medical Centers on Orchard road and they had done some cosmetic work on her teeth. Of course she is trying to get in to modeling as a career and so am I. In fact I am more likely to get work as a singer if things work out the way that I hope they do. I have been singing for a bit and for the past few months I have been getting steady work as a wedding singer. Obviously that is what I hope is the first step on the way to a much bigger thing, because no one dreams about singing at weddings. I have talked to some people who talk about it as though they can help me in the music business, but most of them seem to just be a lot of hot air.

At any rate the idea is to look like a pop music star. Read more…

We Had a Great Time with the Bus Driver on Our School Trip

Posted by David M. Bennett on with No Comments

I work as a teacher at an elementary school. Each year, when we put together a trip for the eight graders who will be graduating and leaving our school. This year, we planned for the kids to go to a very popular theme park that is located about four hours away. The funds for the trip come about thanks to fundraising. I was put in charge of finding a way to get the kids to their destination, so I new I needed to get the bus charter service here to our location to pick everyone up in one place. But I was not sure of which company to use, so I needed to get to work on finding the best one to fit our needs.

We live in a small town, so there are none of these types of businesses located nearby. I began looking online to find a company with a bus large enough to hold all the children and parents who would be going on the trip. And the company that I would choose to use would need to be one that is affordable. Everyone had done a great job with the fundraising, but at the same time, we needed to be very careful with how we spent the money. We did not want to run out of funds halfway through our trip!

I found a company that came highly recommended by several teachers at a nearby school. They said the bus driver was very punctual and very friendly. They also said he is great with kids, sang songs with them and even joked with them. After seeing that the price fit our budget, I made a reservation. We asked for the same driver, and I can say that he truly was fantastic with all of our students, too.

A Condo for Our Growing Family

Posted by David M. Bennett on with No Comments

My husband is a very busy man, so I was not surprised when he asked me to look for a new condo for us. I knew that we were going to have to move since we were going to have a child soon. At the time, we were living in a one bedroom apartment, and we simply did not have the room that we needed. I was able to find a condo gallery in Singapore that showcased all of the different developments that are going up around Singapore. This site was extremely helpful because of all the detail that were provided for each condo development.

I was able to see pictures of the actual condos as well as drawings for the parts that have not been completed yet. I think my favorite part of the site though was in being able to see all of the floor plans of the different units. Read more…

Cheap Storage Units for Singapore

Posted by David M. Bennett on with No Comments

My son is going to be moving gout of the house soon, which is something that we have been encouraging him to do for years. He needs to try to make it on his own, and I know that he will not be able to become self-sufficient, when he is living at home. That is just the truth of the matter. I do want to help him out a bit still though. I have been looking on the website for www.store-friendly.com.sg to try to find the rates on their storage units.

My son is not going to have enough room in his new apartment, in order to fit all of the items he owns in it. I am not going to allow for him to keep belongings at our house, because we need the space. Read more…

    On March 25, the Korea Society of New York is proud to host p’ansori master Bae Il-dong. He presents a program of p’ungnyu, enthralling listeners with his stunning control of drama, narrative, melody, and rhythm. Bae performs Korea's beloved tale of Chunhyang ga, one of the five most popular epic narratives that form the p’ansori canon. The Chunhyang ga tells the story of love between Chunhyang, the daughter of a kiseng, and Yi Mongryong, the son of a magistrate. After the two are illegally married, Mongryong goes to Hanyang (Seoul) to pass the state examination to become a court official. Mr. Bae Il-dong will sing of Yi Mongryong’s return to Namwon as well as his re-encounter with his mother-in-law, Wolmae.

My Wife Needed a Van

Posted by David M. Bennett on with No Comments

My wife and I both have pretty busy schedules even though I am the only one who works outside the home. This does not mean that she doesn’t work hard though. She is raising our three children, and she is very involved with the community that we call home too. She is always running somewhere, whether it is taking the kids to a school event, running to the grocery store, or putting together a charity event. That is why I had to look into a Big Thumb car rental when someone sideswiped her van a few weeks ago.

The accident seemingly seemed minor, but it actually caused extensive damage to her van. The insurance company would not consider it a total loss though, which meant that we had to have it in for repairs for nearly two weeks. There was no way she would be able to go two days without a vehicle let alone two weeks, so I knew that I needed to find an inexpensive rental for her immediately. The reason I went with Big Thumb is because of their reputation. Read more…
