Time For A Change

Change is a good thing. I am a creature of habit, but I certainly love and embrace change. I have recently decided that it was time for a major change in my life. I will be downsizing. My kids are grown, so my husband and I have decided that we will be happier in a smaller place. Even though I look forward to moving, it is a bittersweet feeling. My husband and I have lived in our home for 30 years, so it will be hard to move.

We have purchased some permeable paving materials because we plan to do some work in and out of the home before we move. We are also preparing to sell our home. It gets quite stressful at times, but it will be worth it in the end.

At the Car Dealer…

The promotional sales staff at Joe’s Used Autos leaves a lot to be desired. Joe does not necessarily blame them because more seasoned professionals in the field get jobs at bigger car dealerships or in corporate America. That being said, Joe wishes that his staff would do their jobs better and at a higher level because if they do not, Joe might be forced to close the dealership. It’s really a shame because Joe has been in business since 1968 and has sold used cars to people from all walks of life. Rich, poor, Black, White, Evangelical and Atheist. Unfortunately, times have changed and it’s essential for a sales team member to have computer skills, and good ones at that. Joe thinks about this daily and posts ads looking for people that can help, but to no avail. The future of his business is in doubt.

My business was suffering like never before. I needed a way to attract viewers to my website in order to increase my customer base and sales. However, I was not interested, nor could I afford, expensive marketing programs with long term commitments. A friend informed me about a Pay As You Go Search Engine Optimization marketing tool that would benefit my business. This marketing tool allows me to drive customers to my website via search engines on an as needed basis. It is very much similar to what you experience with cell phone service providers. With this service, I was able to stretch my marketing dollars and save my business. By driving new and existing customers to my website more quickly with popular search engines such Google and Yahoo, I was able to turn a failing business into a profitable business. Thank you SEO Manchester. I highly recommend this strategy.

Town Hall Meeting

Small town living was our choice when my husband retired. We thought it would be great to live in a small and close-knit community. The town council announced a few months ago that it was going to upgrade the local park. They sent everyone a list of items that needed to be decided at the next town hall meeting. We attended, along with many other residents, so we would have a voice in the decisions.

Many of the decisions were agreed on quickly by everyone there. Everybody wanted swings and slides for the children. One of the items where there was a lot of argument was the type of paving to be used for sidewalks. One person was determined to hold out for porous paving material. She said she had done her research and believed this was the best environmental option. After listening to her, I agreed. Eventually everybody else did as well so we now have a complete park design and are ready to build it.

I Was Part Of The Problem

There is an old quote that says, “If you are not a part of the solution, then you are a part of the problem.” I realized how true that saying was, especially when it comes to protecting the environment. I have watched people throw their trash on the ground, waste food, waste water and use toxic chemicals. I never liter, try to conserve food, water and clean my house with natural products. Even though I live an eco-friendly lifestyle, I realized that I was a part of the problem because I was just sitting back and doing nothing.

Now, I am raising awareness about environmental issues. I talk at various conventions and tell people about silica equestrian sand, recycling as well as conserving food and energy. I also encourage them to tell their friends and family members about environmental issues.

Sometimes hearing can be obstructed by something as simple as it is wax. Earwax can build up in our ears over time, in an effort to protect our ears from too much debris getting into them. Although earwax is a protection method of the ear, it can also be problematic, and even gross. If you don’t clean your ears regularly, they will have too much build up, and can cause hearing distortion, as well as a waxy mess.

When you choose to do Stockport ear wax removal, you can do this by several methods. A cotton swab is the standard way of removing ear wax, but a suction device can also work. Some people even use their fingers to dig into their ears, but your finger can only go down so far. A suction device is the best choice when cleaning the ears, as it can remove excess wax, and completely clean the ears.

Blue Night

As Sammy headed towards the stage, all white marbled eyes followed his dragging feet. His cool demeanor showed as he tousled his greased black hair and straightened his leather jacket. He picked up his instrument, an instrument that was mostly hollow, and connected a cable to it. A guitar? No, he held it as a violin and began playing. The sharp notes coming from the violin were crisp as they played the blues in the style of BB King. The bow moving back and forth, with it creating a vibrating sensation through the crowd. As everyone watched in awe until the end of the song, the electric violinist only saw one thing…his slender violin. He placed it back on the floor once he was done and continued down the steps. He slowly walked out the back door. All that was left was the electric violin, shining under the black light, waiting to be played once more.
