Here in New Hampshire we have snow and cold for winter time, not sure what the weather is like in your area during the winter months, but NH winters do require some form of heating to get through it without dying of being frozen to death. Here we have a furnace that runs oil heat, believe it’s forced hot air or hot water, anyways there are registers that push out the heat and keep us nice and toasty. Overall where I live now has a pretty reliable furnace system, but in my 1945 home that I used to own, that was an insanely old, worn down furnace that would sometimes crap the bed. That would require a technician to visit and give it life again, that totally sucks. Thankfully there are many places and options to get a furnace as well as a tech, maybe where you live you have to look at calgary furnaces. Whatever location and furnace type you need, rest assure knowing there are options out there.
The same goes for plumbing, nothing worse than having a pipe freeze due to cold weather and a broken furnace only to have to find a calgary plumber to fix the job. Frozen water pipes bursting is a sad reality of life when you do not insulate your pipes properly! Water freezes, expands and then blows up, leaving your home or work place covered in major water damage.
One can never be too safe, your best bet is to keep up with regular maintenance around your home to ensure you are not left in the cold or with a water mess this winter season!
Back in the years of being a single mom to my daughter there were times when I had to go to the local cash advance place and take out a payday loan. This was an easy way to get some cash to pay overdue, disconnect bill notices. I had no choice but to take advantage of the payday loan or cash advance loan system. That place is no longer here and so when I was married and we were low on cash, we had to go to the Internet to search out various payday loan options. What we found out was that there are a lot of sites on the Internet where you can get a cash advance or payday loan, one of those sites is www.credloans.com.
There are advantages to getting a short term or payday loan:
- Get the cash you need now to avoid having utilities disconnected when that disconnect notice hits your mailbox.
- Ability to get a loan no matter what credit type you have; poor, fair, good or great.
- Fast cash when you need it for whatever emergency reason you may need it.
There are some things to be sure of prior to getting a short term or payday loan:
- Research the company, do a search about the company and take everything you read online about this firm with a grain of salt, meaning sometimes people just like to complain even if the company is amazing.
- Be sure that you will be able to pay off the short term or payday loan within the time allotted.
- Be aware of the fact that this is a loan and that you must have the funds to cover their auto payment feature, most of these companies do have your payment setup to automatically come out of your checking account.
Getting a short term or payday loan can seem like a bad idea to others, but I know from experience it is something that I have been grateful to have as an option. Funds get low, bills pile up, emergencies happen and that is why it is wonderful to have various short term loan options in our country these days. Just be safe, be smart and do not over borrow!
Where I live it has never really been thought of to ensure that your home is safe, per say. Back in the days of growing up, I recall the door of our home being left unlocked all of the time, windows were unlocked and it was simply a trust thing around that time in my world. Since growing up and becoming a parent of my own three children, I have become a bit more paranoid or OCD to be exact about ensuring my home, my children, my dog and my belongings are as safe as I feel them to be.
Some things that people pick on me about is that I have to check all doors and windows frequently in my home to ensure they are locked tight, this usually occurs at end of day or prior to leaving my home. The kids roll their eyes and want me to hurry but I can not leave without knowing I have locked down my home, every single time.
There are other ways to keep your home safe while you are away, sleeping or working in your home office, shut off from the real world. One could use a home security system. There are so many options available these days to the average home owner to ensure they can find a home security system that works for their needs and budget. From wired to a wireless surveillance camera system, there is a choice for every type of person and family. Knowing that my home is secured by a device I can access from outside of the home and monitors not only my home but maybe windows being opened or broken really helps me to feel safer.
It is so funny that I grew up in an era where people were still leaving cars and houses unlocked yet now, in this day and age, it seems everyone has become more paranoid, locked down and the sense of community trust has been lost due to the financial struggles of those who have turned to being thieves to support their families or those who simply are just criminals who don’t seem to know better than to be thieving from others. No matter who you are, where you live and what type of community that you live in, rest assured that there are many home security camera system options out there to make you feel a bit more at ease when leaving your home unattended.
Tell me, have any of you used a home security system before, how did that work out for you? Did you choose a wired or wireless setup?
Most people bring full on awareness of breast cancer closer to October, that is the month of breast cancer awareness, but honestly we should be aware all year long. cureLauncher.com is a community that raises money for cancer treatments and medical research. There are various clinical trials that you can partake in with cureLauncher.com as well as ways to donate on their site. When 90% of all funds donated go directly towards the cause, research and funding to help find a cure, you can rest assured that if you are not taking part in their trials that your money is being placed close to 100% towards what you are donating it for.
There are many trials going on now with cureLauncher.com such as one trial to help find treatment for pre-clinical heart failure and another for Pacemaker/Defibrillator after Heart Attack. I personally have only known one person with cancer, that was my uncle. They found the cancer so late that there was no cure, no trials, no nothing but letting him rest until he passed away. That was sad. I think that everyone should be more aware of their bodies, get annual physicals and take part in helping to fund research for breast cancer cures and other cancers. This is such an important medical necessity, do not let cancer take over, fight back. At least if you know you fought back all you could, brought more awareness to everyone about various forms of cancer and verbalized your story with the world, then you did all you could do to help save another life from cancer.
Right now, my daughter is dealing with a very close relative of hers being diagnosed with cancer, so this topic is very close to my heart.
There is a documentary on BBC of Neil Armstrong that has been catching some beef, not the documentary itself but whether or not Neil Armstrong lied about his moon landing speech. In case you don’t realize, Neil Armstrong was an American Astronaut who happened to be the first person to ever walk on the moon. Neil Armstrong passed away late August, and now that the BBC documentary is airing there is some beef about whether his moon landing speech was improvised or not.
Since Neil Armstrong is not alive to speak for his own self, his brother Dean is now dealing with interviews citing that Neil’s speech was draft up before the Apollo mission in 1969. All of this debate is over one word “a”, citing that Neil’s original speech written on paper was to say “That’s one small step for a man” versus the “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” which has been documented.
My opinion on all of this mumble jumble is that who really cares, Neil Armstrong is not here to cite whether or not his speech has been transcribed incorrectly or not and the fact remains he was the first man to walk on the moon so why does the media, once again, have to make such hype over such simple things?
I guess I am simple minded in that I feel there are way more important things to worry about, I feel our society is way too politically correct and we need to leave well enough alone sometimes.
