Best Online Korean Drama Shows

Posted by David M. Bennett on with No Comments

I am getting hungry today. I have been watching this show after I found a site where I can watch Korean drama for free, and much to my surprise I have been getting really into it, and I think that it might be my new type of show. I am not sure about that, but it does seem like it is pretty cool and I hope that the rest of the episodes in this show are as neat and interesting as the ones that I have already seen, because otherwise I am probably going to be pretty disappointed, and then I am going to have to find something else to watch.

But before I even think about finding something else to watch, I want to find something to eat. Read more…

Old Age Doesn’t Mean Becoming a Burden

Posted by David M. Bennett on with No Comments

Do you know which is the biggest shock any man ever receive in his life? It is the moment when he knows he is an old man. In ancient time old persons were getting respect and care from youngsters but now that culture no longer exist. Now a days everyone hate to be treated as an old man by others which is why a senior companion in Queens is so great. At the time of his retirement itself a person starts face some new issues in his life. These issues may be financial, keeping relationships or health issues. Another problem is the slow life lead by elders. After retirement they are free from official duties and that make them feel lazy and slow.

So we can see after retirement old people face multiple problems in their life. Read more…

Looking for a Place Near BU

Posted by David M. Bennett on with No Comments

I have got a new job working for the administration offices at Boston University and I am getting a pretty good trip in to the office every morning. I have been living in Waltham where I have a little place with cheap internet and Cox tv in Massachusetts. I am thinking that I can probably try to find a place that is closer to the campus if I try hard enough, although obviously I am not looking to live like I used to live when I was living in Chestnut Hill while I went to BC. I am sure there are plenty of quiet little neighborhoods near the campus where you can find a place to live. Read more…

Ford Metro can provide custom shower enclosuresI was out on a a renovation job the other day and I came across this potential opportunity. I was helping this guy with the installation of a big set of tempered glass shower doors in Essex county NJ. I had not ever done anything like that before, but we figured out how we we were going to do it and we took our time. If you were the right time of fool you could do some serious damage with this thing, because you are dealing with a great big chunk of tempered glass. 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…

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.

Cheap Storage Units for Singapore

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 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…

We Had a Nice Little Holiday Weekend

Posted by David M. Bennett on with No Comments

Of course it is not going to be that big of a deal for me to take a couple of days off and I am going to be here for about a week. Jan and I have a nice hotel room and we were a little confused at first. We went to check in and then a bunch of people in cosplay costumes came walking past us. We had no clue when we booked this room, but apparently they have this huge comic book convention in town right now. The guy in the hotel restaurant was telling me that the convention center was right down the street, close enough so that you could walk there from the hotel in about ten minutes. In fact if you were going to this thing this would have been the very best location unless you wanted to camp out in the parking lot. From what I understand there was a little of that going on, with people who had a camper parked out in the convention center parking lot.

At any rate we were not really borrowed by these people. They were having a pretty good time and we thought they were quite funny. There was this one girl that I had to work very hard not to stare at. Of course a lot of people go to these things for the express purpose of getting people to look at them. If you are an exhibitionist this sort of thing is like Christmas, your birthday and the 4th of July all rolled up in to one nice package. This girl was wearing something, but I am not quite sure how to describe it. It did not leave much at all to the imagination and it was obvious that I was not really allowed to enjoy the view.

The Warehouse Needs to Have a New Roof

Posted by David M. Bennett on with No Comments

Of course this is important, because it is going to be costly to find some guy to do commercial roof replacement in Bergen county NJ. It is something we have been thinking about for a little while, but the last winter made it all too obvious that we needed a new roof. Of course there we got one huge snow fall right on top of another, until the snow was up to the tops of the roofs in places. In fact I went back to my Dad's neighborhood one time and it was so bad that I had trouble figuring out where I was exactly a couple of times. I mean it snowed so much that you could hardly see where you were. You would be driving down the road and you would be in the middle of a valley with a huge amount of snow on each side of the road.

At any rate we have a couple of guys in the warehouse all day and all night. There is always some guy there to answer the phone and unload a truck if someone makes a delivery. One night they were in there about four in the morning and part of the roof gave in a little. It did not collapse, but it almost did. What happened was that when it buckled that shook off a few tons of snow and relieved the pressure on the roof. At the time the roof of the warehouse probably had six feet of snow on it. You do not think about that, but of course those guys did not want to go back in there while that roof was like that. It was not as though I blamed them. We pay them pretty well for those types of job, but not enough to take big risks.

Wishing You Knew the Temperature? Go Wireless

Posted by David M. Bennett on with No Comments

Knowing the temperature of the air, or of a lot of different things actually, can be a vital part of our world. Being able to measure temperature precisely is important. Our technology has invented countless things that are now wireless, including a wireless thermometer.

Knowing the correct temperature is essential for everything from heating and cooling our residences, to knowing how long to cook a meal so we don't get ill from undercooked food. Thermometers are used to tell us if we need to go see a doctor, or if we need to throw on extra warm clothing before we go outside. Thermometers are vital to our lives.

Most of the thermometers we have used over the years are the classic bulb variety. In a bulb thermometer there is a liquid, frequently mercury, which will not boil or freeze. The outside temperature if the air, or the inside temperature of person or food item being cooked, will cause the pressure in the liquid to increase and inch the liquid up a graduated marker on the outside of the thermometer. We've all seen them, and we've all used one.

But with today's technology there has been the advent of wireless thermometers. In the old days if you wanted to know the current temperature outside your house you had to have a fixed bulb type thermometer nailed to a wall or post. Not with wireless thermometers. Now you can just wake up in the morning and without ever leaving the comfort of your home, press a button on your wireless thermometer and know what the temperature is outside. You can have programmed readings that tell you not only the outside temperature, but also let you know the temperature in other rooms in your home.

When it comes to cooking things like the family turkey, in the old days you had to open the oven door and face an intense blast of heat, then pull out the bird to check the thermometer strategically stuck in some precise place. Now there is a reading device that attaches to anything you wish to know the internal cooking temperature of and you shut the oven door and regularly check the cooking temperature using a wireless handheld thermometer.

There are a lot of things that have added unique convenience to our lives, but there are few that have helped with our comfort level than wireless thermometers. If you want to know the exact temperature of the outdoors air, the inside of a Thanksgiving turkey, or the body of your feverish child, test out some new technology using a wireless thermometer.

Started Getting Back in to Shape

Posted by David M. Bennett on with No Comments

I was thinking about how to best go about getting back in shape and it seems to me that I need options for indoors and outdoors exercise. I need to be able to vary things up and also I want something that is going to have a low risk of injury. I was looking at a ladies bikes guide on the theory that you could do a bike ride without harming your knees. We have a lot of hard pavement around here and when I go out for jogs it seems to give my knees quite a pounding. It makes sense that you should be able to ride a bike and not make any impact at all, unless you happen to crash. I suppose you must wear a helmet also if you know what is best for you. I never wore one when I was a kid, but I would guess that you get in trouble these days with the way they tell you how you have to follow all of the safety rules all of the time.

At any rate you have to think about what you are going to do when the weather is too cold for riding out of doors or when it is storming. You still need to be able to get. Of course they make those stand things that you can stick the bike on and then you can ride it just like you were out of doors. Of course I suppose you would stick it front of the tv if you were going to do it inside. At least I would do that. Then you could get your exercise in while you were watching your favorite tv shows or a movie or something like that. I am not sure how hard it is to do.

The Need for Smart Budgeting Skills

Posted by David M. Bennett on with No Comments

If you're like me and find yourself with a lack of budgeting skills and need a budget calculator, you're not alone! It's been a long hard road for me to reach a point where I can successfully create a budget that is both financially reasonable but mature, too. With the education that I was raised with along with parents who never saw fit to teach me about the importance of budgeting in the slightest, I was left reeling in the adult world once I left high school and wondered what exactly I was going to do with myself. College was a given but what about money?

I should have been smarter about my income but I was never taught the value of a budget and a plan. I just went by my gut and tried to do the best possible. It wasn't always the best solution and I soon found myself in financially dire straits that left me in heavy debt. I have come to conclude that finances should be a class starting as early as possible to give students a sense of understanding and experience with the importance of financial awareness and maturity. It's baffling that we have come to this point in our education system that it's not included at all.

Nearly everything that we are involved with is in some way related to finances. Most of us spend and make money ever day. Most of us don't even understand how to save that money or how we can better our lives through intelligent saving methods. The fact that I was never taught it in the first place goes to show that my parents hadn't been aware of how important it is nor were they any better than I. It's a problem that is passed on to every new generation which leaves them in a worse situation than the previous and is most likely the reason for so many issues today.

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. My girl is a graphic artist and she is self employed, which means that she will probably be the one who is deciding what sort of internet we get. She will get some really good internet and half of it will be her business expense.

In fact she wants to get a two bedroom apartment so that she will have one room in which she can make an office. You definitely do not want to try to work in the living room while I am watching the basketball games or at the kitchen table when I am cooking beans and franks. That sort of thing gets in the way when you are working at a job and she is not the type of person who mixes other stuff with her work. It is obviously better if you can have a lot of privacy to focus on the work that you need to do. I have been thinking about what sort of location is best, obviously I want to be able to get to work and back in as short of a time as I can. That is a big factor, but the happy girlfriend takes precedence.
