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/ .

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”
I am going to be able to work at my new job without the morning commute, at least it is not going to require me to get up in the morning and go to the office every single day of the week. The boss gave me voucher and told me to find high speed internet that cost less than twice that much every month. They are going to be paying for half of my internet service, it is going to be a business expense for them. I shall keep the laptop that they gave me and they are going to get the IT guy to build me a computer for my desk at the house. Continue reading “Setting Up the Home Office”
My wife and I are looking for a house right now, and we only have a short time frame to purchase one. Otherwise, we are going to figure out another living arrangement in the interim, and that sounds like a big waste of money. We are going to be moving out of our current apartment, upon the end of our lease term. That is only a couple of months away, and that does not give us much time. I want to look into home insurance rates for the area, so that I will know what company I want to get a policy with, once I have actually found a house to purchase.
I am going to try to do all that I can to make sure that the process of closing on the house goes as quickly, and smoothly, as possible. As such, I am going to look into this sort of thing, ahead of time, instead of waiting until the last minute to figure out which home insurance company we are going to be going through.
In particular, I am curious to find insurance companies that offer the cheapest rates for this area. I am sure that insurance prices vary by area, due to certain risk factors that are present in some areas of the country, and not present in others. I am interested in finding low rates. At the same time, I am sensitive to the amount of coverage that I will be getting for the price of the premium. It is important to get a good policy, that will cover most types of typical damage that can occur to houses. There are other types of coverage that are also necessary though. Such as coverage for visitors that you have over to your house, and things like that.
I would like to get a new security system, at some point soon. My current security system was installed in the early nineties, and I realize that it is not very effective, compared to modern security systems. My wife has been hassling me, to get a new security system, for months, and I am finally going to oblige. I have been looking around, and ended up on a website, http://home-security.co/adt-home-security, that I hope will help me to learn a bit more about the security systems that are offered by ADT.
I have heard good things about ADT, and I think that it is one of the better companies in the home security industry. I know that they have been in business for a long time, as well, and as such, they are probably doing something right. I bought my home security system from a company that is now defunct, and that is one of the reasons why it no longer serves as an effective security system. But it would be outdated, even if that were not the case.
I want to try to learn more about modern features of home security systems, and how they will be able to benefit me. I am sure that there have to be some aspects of modern security systems that are far more advanced the security systems that I have. I actually deactivated the security system, because I am not sure it really does anything for my house, other than occasionally annoy me. Hopefully, I can get the new security system installed in a matter of days, because I know that would bring a lot of peace of mind to my wife. She has been watching too of the news lately, and it has gotten her excessively frightened that something bad might happen to our house.
