We got the little house with the back yard and we fenced it in as soon as we could manage it. So we had about a half acre in the back where the girls and their puppies could run around and play. It was not long before they wanted a little play house back there. Of course they wanted a fairy tale castle, but I figured that they would settle for a little storage building if I added some plantation shutters and that sort of thing to make it look nice. That is the idea I have. Of course I was thinking that I could probably find some retired carpenter or an out of work home builder to do it for me, but after I looked around for a little while I found this building which was for sale.

I have had this piece of land for a half dozen years now. My Dad and I bought it, it sits on a rise above Lake Amistad. In fact it is a quiet little part of the lake where you can go canoeing without the risk of being run over by some drunken idiot. I never did anything to it, but I got a great deal on a nice camper trailer and I am thinking about leaving it up there. I am at choosetexaspower.org trying to figure out how hard it is to get the electricity turned on there, although I am not sure that I need a lot of power. I do not go up there with a boat load of appliances. I have the grill, one of those tiny ones the size of a big frying pan and that is what I cook with. (more →)
I am about to buy a house in the state of Ohio. I am from Florida, so I never really thought I would find myself in a position to purchase a house in Ohio. That is probably a bit of an understatement. I had never even fathomed it. But I met a girl that is from Ohio, and sometimes the heart dictates things that the mind cannot know in advance. So I am now looking into Centerburg home owners insurance rates, as I would like to purchase a house in Centerburg in the near future.
I want to take my time, and pick out a house that is right for the family that I am starting. The girl that I am about to marry has two children already, and as such, I think it is much more appropriate for us to live in a house, as opposed to living in an apartment. (more →)
I am living up close to Annapolis in Anne Arundel County right now, bought a little piece of land right on the Chesapeake Bay and put a house on the only suitable spot. It is about Southeast of Chester, across the bay from the Naval Academy and I near Matapeake State Park. I found a guy who does satellite tv for maryland and that works great, but the internet is a bit of a problem. I could get DSL or maybe wireless, but the people who live in the area are not speaking all that highly of either option and I am not sure that I really care so much for right now. I will figure it out in due course of time, but I am kind of okay with people not being able to get me on the email 24 hours a day. (more →)
At the food production factory that I work at, we are trying to change our production line, and we are going to need a lot of new pieces of equipment in the near future. It is just in the planning phase right now, and I have been put in charge of picking out a certain piece of equipment. I am in charge of finding information about horizontal cartoners and making a suggestion for a piece of equipment to replace the one that we currently have in place.
We are going to need one that can do a specific list of functions, and I have that list in front of me. I am not really sure why I got put in charge of this, but I am not going to complain about it too much, because there are a lot worse jobs that I could be doing right now. (more →)
Dating can be one of the most stressful and unavoidable aspects of living in a modern world. Without a doubt, I have spent hours upon hours of trying to find the right dating system just for me without any kind of help in the process. By help I mean some kind of guide to give me any sort of idea, a clue, anything at all that will be able to tell me what I'm doing wrong with women! I looked up the 'Desire System', a website and a book which purports to know exactly how dating actually works. Personally, after reviewing the system, I realized that perhaps they don't know everything there is to know but they do in fact offer quite a good amount of positive material and information which can be used to help you along your way in dating and all things involved in the dating world.
And yet, it comes down to what I think needs to be a recognition of mutual respect toward the individuals that you are going out out on a date with. One of the primary dysfunctions of going on a date is that it can easily feel that there is some kind of interview going on between the two. I know that when I go on a date, I often find myself going through a mental checklist of qualities that I want and comparing this person to those qualities. In turn, I can't help but question whether if this is a good method or not. Am I leaving myself open to not being able to find the person that I want to share the rest of my life with or am I doing the right thing by knowing what I want, what I like in a person and in turn if I will be able to share my life with this person or not for the rest of my life.
