Our daughter is approaching her teen years. She has discovered that the hormone changes of puberty that will help her grow into a beautiful woman also come with things such as body odor and hair she will be plucking, waxing and shaving the rest of her life. Or, as she said, until you get to be Grandma’s age! The thing is that our daughter has very sensitive skin. We have to use laundry detergent that has no fragrances or dyes. She uses a shampoo and conditioner that also does not have them in it either. The best deodorant for women that worked safely on very sensitive skin was now on her shopping list.
I do not remember the first time I used deodorant when I was a young girl. I probably just grabbed the same stuff my mother used and tried it. I think that is what happened as I am still using the same brand she does. Our daughter tried it and broke out in a bad rash. Continue reading Our Pre-Teen Daughter Has Extremely Sensitive Skin
I was in a pretty bad car accident not that long ago. I was driving down the Interstate, very happy that it was not as crowded as it usually is, when a car crossed the median and hit me nearly head on. I know it could have been so much worse for both of us, considering the speed that we were going, so I was grateful that I was not injured worse than what I was. As it was, I did have to find a Chandler auto accident chiropractor because of the whiplash and sore back that I had.
The hospital was able to set my broken arm, and they did keep me overnight for observation. There was not much they could do about the neck and back issues I had though. Continue reading I Did Not Know Whiplash Was So Painful
I am the legal guardian of my niece and nephew. Their parents were killed in a car accident nearly two years ago, and they still have a very hard time with it. They both developed a fear of the unknown, which meant they were afraid of moving in with me even though I live in a very safe neighborhood. I could definitely understand their reservations because I had quite a few of my own. My life was changed the same day that their lives were. I told them that we could have an ADT security system installed before they moved in, and that actually helped calm down some of their fears. Continue reading Knocking Down One Fear at a Time
I was having problems with my apartment and I was thinking about moving. I needed to take a look around at different apartments in jacksonville florida. There are many reasons why I want to move from my current place. One of those reasons is because it’s a bit shady. I get the feeling that they don’t screen any of the tenants in this complex and I think quite a number of them might be felons. I don’t have any concrete proof of that but it’s just a gut feeling. Another reason is because it’s pretty disgusting. I’ve seen roaches numerous times and no matter how clean I keep my place, they ultimately come back. This tells me that there is at least another tenant that has a gross apartment which is keeping the roaches coming back. This is really disheartening because I go to great lengths to keep my apartment clean. I don’t like to live in squalor and the first time I saw a roach in my apartment I couldn’t believe it. Continue reading Needing to Get a New Apartment
With the help of www.energyproviderstexas.com I’ve been able to quickly shop and compare which energy provider I’m going to choose, a simple fact at first glance but a luxury which not every state is able to provide! I find it rather novel and cool that I’m able to do this from my home here in Indiana since I’ll be moving to Texas in just a week. I just started researching the sort of utilities that I’ll have to look forward to so I was taken by surprise that I could actively choose which provider I wanted.
Here in Indiana we don’t have that. Continue reading Texas Gives Residents the Power of Choice
My husband and I were thinking hard on what to get his aunt and uncle for an anniversary gift. They actually could use a lot of things because they had just had a house fire that destroyed a good bit of their material possessions. I did not want to get them something like a blender or microwave oven. That is what insurance money is for! I wanted to get them something more personal, and that is when my husband suggested that we buy anniversary ketubahs for them. Well, just one was needed, and I thought it was a fantastic idea.
I knew that they had lost everything in the living room since that is where the fire had originated, and that is where their wedding ketubah was displayed on the wall behind their sofa. Continue reading The Perfect Anniversary Gift for His Relatives
We have worked out nearly all of the details and we are currently digging the foundation and the basement for the new house. With four growing kids we need a lot more space and this is going to be quite a bit larger. Right now I am in the process of figuring out what sort of home automation and security system I am going to put in, especially whether or not to do a deal with the local ADT provider or with some other entity, like for instance our cable company has their own home automation and home security platform. Continue reading Started Construction on the New House
Thanks to your website I was able to read the reviews here and find the perfect software for my brother’s scanner. My parents passed away a few years ago, and my brother and I had been sharing the old family photos. Since I was traveling a lot with my job, I thought it would be awesome if I could have our family pictures on my computer, but I didn’t know which software would be best, so I started looking around online. Who knew there were so many different types of software out there? I wanted to find a easy, plug and play type software, because even though I worked with computers I wouldn’t call myself a wizard or computer geek.
When I found your website I was able to read all the reviews about the software you sold. Continue reading Get All the True Reviews Here
We have the house and it is pretty much exactly what we wanted, but it is a bit of a stretch financially for myself and Anna Catherine. We did not have much of an issue getting the down payment, because we were able to get some of it from our parents. They were both delighted, since this place is quite close to both of our parents’ homes and they are going to be grandparents in about three or four months from now. We have to make our monthly bills, ADT security, cable television and the internet are what we have on the cutting block right now. We are wondering which one of them we can do without the easiest for a short term period. That probably means that we are going to cut the cable for a few months, although I would really prefer it if it was during the baseball season and not football and basketball season. I do not care that much for watching baseball on TV, but I really love the other two sports. Continue reading Deciding What We Need to Cut from the Budget
I have a lot of skill in what I do, but very little business experience. Basically I have been supervising a major machine shop for about 17 years, with some prior experience in the field and in the military. Right after I turned fifty the company decided to move the operations overseas to some place in Asia. It turned out to be a disaster for them because they got entangled with government corruption or something that smelled a lot like it. Of course their misfortune was no good to me or the people who used to work in the machine shop. Some of us got together and managed to get together the machining we need to build our own shop. We had one of the former executives doing a lot of the sales and administrative work, but he was working out of his garage and now he has gotten a much better position than we could offer him.
We are not starting from scratch, but we are going to need to set up a real office. Continue reading How Much Will It Cost Me to Set Up an Office Network?
When I opened up my own business, I was pretty excited because I was finally realizing a dream that I had worked for nearly half my life. My partner took care of writing up our business plan, because he has the business expertise while I provide the talent and skill to design our products. What started out with just the two of us quickly grew to ten employees just in the first six months. By the time we were in business for two years, we had over 50 employees.
We had to make the decision on whether to have an in-house team who would help us with business solutions. My partner does have business expertise, but he is a bit old school so he needed help in the technical areas.. Because of that, we needed to have a team who could help us with the big picture.
