A New Patio for My Wife

I was trying to think of the perfect gift to give my wife for our 20th wedding anniversary when it hit me out of the blue. Well, not really out of the blue, because I had been looking at patio furniture for her. She loves spending time outside, and I thought a new set might make her smile. That is when I thought about hiring a business that specializes in masonry in Nassau County NY. That might seem like an odd gift, but it is actually the perfect one for my wife.

As I said, she likes spending time outside, and I knew that she was okay with how the patio was but not completely satisfied with it. Continue reading “A New Patio for My Wife”

I Needed a New Packer

When the machine that packed my product broke, I knew that I had to get it fixed or replaced immediately. I could not handle being out of production for very long, and that is exactly what would happen if I could not get the case packer working again. Unfortunately, the repairman who looked at it told me that it was not repairable. That meant I had to find a new one quick. He suggested that I look at JLSAutomation case packers for a number of reasons, but the main one is because they would be able to get me the packer I needed very fast.

It is too hard and time consuming to pack the containers by hand, and that is what we had to do while we waited for the old one to get fixed. As soon as I found the name of the company that he recommended, I went online to research them. Continue reading “I Needed a New Packer”

An Apartment That is Almost Too Good to Be True

While looking at apartments in North San Antonio, I was not just focused on what the actual apartment looks like. I wanted to see what features are available for anyone to use who lives there, and I also wanted to see what was around the local area. I did not want to move to an apartment that was out in the boonies, but I also did not want nonstop traffic to be an issue either. I wanted an apartment that is nice on the eyes and very modern, and I also wanted to have things to do there when I didn’t want to be cooped up inside.

That might sound like a lot of demands, but it was actually quite easy to find an apartment complex that not only met all of those requirements but exceeded them as well. The Regency at Lookout Canyon is a beautiful and fun place to live. I was able to find a large one bedroom apartment that even has a garage. That is probably one of my favorite things there.

Moving Made All My Business Trips Much Easier

The streets full of vibrantly-colored Santa Fe apartments and homes were always so beautiful to me as a passed through the city during business trips. I was always on a road trip to places like California and Arizona, so I never got a chance to stop and check anything out in New Mexico for very long. The colors in the city are amazing. Brick reds, ochre and many other bright colors. Nothing in Arizona or California compared. Arizona had some of the same architecture, but they use a lot of different shades of brown, and that’s it. It did not appeal to me in the same way.

One day, as I was passing through on a business trip again, I decided to stop and each lunch at a quaint little diner that looked like it was housed an old pueblo building. I asked the waitress about the history of the building, and she was happy to share what she knew. She could see that I was very interested, so on one of her stops to bring me another cup of coffee, she told me a little bit more history about the city. I was fascinated. I told her that I would love to move there one day, and she simply asked, “Well, why don’t you?” I was taken aback at first because not everything is so easy. But then I realized, yes, it really could be that easy.

I don’t work in an office, so there would be no issues with me needing to find a job first. I had a home office, and then I was simply take off when it was time to go out west to drive to meet a client. Moving to Sante Fe would make my road trips even shorter. It also meant that I could cultivate some new clients in the area as well. I began working on moving there just a couple of months later after meeting the waitress.

It Keeps Coming in the Mail

I used to loathe going to the mailbox, but it isn’t so bad now. I would always get junk mail and bills, which I hated. I would have to shred the junk mail and look at the ever increasing prices of the bills. Once you’ve stared at offers from energy providers and credit card companies for 20 years, it all starts to run together. A couple of things did catch my eye. One provider was offering a month of free service and a fixed rate plan. I also saw an offer for a card with a high credit limit and 0% APR.

I started with the credit card offer first, because I wanted to use the card to pay my first bill. In the old days, it would take a while to fill out a credit card application and you would have to wait until the company sent a response back in the mail.
