My Wife Loves Our New Dial-up Service

As a very young couple, who just got married last year, my wife and I have to be very careful with our money. We are just starting out in the work world, and we just do not make a lot of money yet. But we cannot be without Internet, so I found a website online to help compare dialup Internet in our area so that I could get a better idea of the type of prices and options we can expect to pay for it.

I should also mention that we have a new baby who is only 3 months old. This is yet another reason we have to be careful money-wise. When we go to visit my parents, my wife loves to use their computer so that she can look up information on some of her favorite parenting pages.

Started Working on the New Building

I got this tip from a lady who does the cleaning for us. She does a lot of house cleaning in Westchester county NY and she knows a lot of people, she knows that I am always on the hunt for new opportunities and she put this deal together. Of course she was looking for a commission and I did not blame her for wanting one, but I was not looking to make her rich off of it. Still it was a good deal, so she got enough to make it worth her time and the effort she put in it. Now the trick is to get the place fixed up and find a tenant or some person who is going to want to give me a price where I make a good return on the money that I have invested in it. Of course the guy who sold me the place was just looking to get out of the deal.

He was a dentist or something like that and he has a brother in law, like most dentists have and the brother in law had gotten him in to a deal that he was not able or willing to carry through to the end. At any rate it was not a good deal for him and he was looking to get out from under it. I could tell he was going to lose money on it, but my interest was in paying a good price for the property. It had to be something that made sense after you figure the cost of fixing the place up, and it is a long way from being up to code at this exact point in time. I have some of my associates down there getting ready to bid on what needs to be done.

Starting Hunting for a Better Place to Live

Starting hunting for a better place to live while I am over here in Singapore. I was hoping that I would be able to get back to the UK sooner rather than later, but that is not going to happen. The guy who runs the company on this side of the world got on the phone with the big boss back in London and told him that he needed me, so now I am his until further notice. I am thinking about investing in real estate here. That seems like a sure bet. I was talking a lady here, http://www.condogallery.com.sg/marine-blue/ .

I Didn’t Want to Miss Football Games

When I moved from Pittsburgh to Richmond, I knew that life was going to get a lot better for me. I had accepted a job at a prestigious company, and things were just really looking up for me. The only downside to this was that I could not get any of the Pittsburgh Steelers football games on TV. Here, it is all about the Redskins, and they are just not my team of choice. My boss told me to look at www.cable-tv.com/comcast/virginia/vcu/mcv-east/ to see if that was something I would be interested in.

He is also a fan of another team, though his loyalty lies with the Cowboys. He ended up getting Directv so he would never miss a game. I had never had satellite television up to that point, but I was extremely interested in finding out more because I did not want to miss a single game. I looked at the prices first. Even though I make a great salary, I was still not prepared to throw a considerable amount of money away. Continue reading “I Didn’t Want to Miss Football Games”
