Make Plans Now for the Better

At forty one years old, I thought that my brother was crazy at thirty eight to go and buy his burial plot for him and his wife. We are so young I told him, he did not have to go out and start buying things like that and then the next week, one of our friends was killed. I realized that he was not crazy for going out to look for monuments in Morris County NJ where he thought he wanted to be buried. There are a lot of people who say that you could never plan things like that too far ahead. It is a lot of money to bury someone today. Continue reading

My Friends Picked My New Apartment for Me

I let my friends pick where I was going to live. I invited everyone to a party at my old place using formal invitations that I actually mailed to them. I don’t think these Internet junkies have ever gotten anything in the mail other than bills and ads. The premise was to go online and look for apartments near Ballantyne in Charlotte NC, and then pick the best place for us all to tour. They looked at a bunch of apartment websites, and then they all voted and settled that I would be moving to the District South apartments as soon as we all did a site tour and it met their approval.

They talked about me having big rooms with high ceilings so that we could all have space when they visited me. They said they needed parking too, because they were tired of walking almost a block from where they had to park to get to my old apartment. Plus, they said the place had to have a big swimming pool for their entertainment. Keep in mind that there were only four friends deciding for me. They are my friends. Continue reading

A New Adventure with Lisa

Sometimes, life throws us a curve ball. As people, we are forced to step outside our comfort zone and take on life. I also experienced this situation. My wife Rose and I both had to step outside our comfort zones to get what we wanted out of life. A month ago, my boss offered me a new position in my company. I was chosen to oversee an international office in Singapore. The catch was that my wife Lisa and I would have to move. We researched living spaces online and decided to live at Parc Esta in Singapore. We were very pleased with what we found.

I would for my company for ten years. I completed an internship with the company during my senior year in college. They were so pleased with my work, that I was offered a job fresh out of college. I have never regretted my decision to work for them. Continue reading

Watch out for a Recently Discovered Online Snapchat Hack!

Snapchat is a very widely used and popular phone app that everyone, from your Grandma to celebrities and even the president, have been known to post ‘Snapchats’, but what if I told you a seemingly harmless snapchat could ruin your day, or if you have a bad bank, your whole month?

An online snapchat hack has been found in over a dozen instances so far and it is very disconcerting. A tech analyst said, “There’s really no way to tell if it is a dangerous snapchat if the hack has been exploited.”. It seems due to the app accessing your credit card information the hack can end up giving out your card info in just seconds while on your end it just looks like a black screen or in one case a particularly malicious hacker shared a disturbing image with text saying, “It’s too late.”. causing serious mental distress to the victim though in their case they froze the card before any purchases could be made on it fortunately.

However, sadly there’s no clear fix to this problem and experts strongly urge everyone to keep a close eye on their bank accounts as hacks like these don’t always become apparent immediately. Online snapchat hacks can happen to anyone at any time at least until Snapchat patches their system to fix this exploit and vulnerability in the system.

There have also been rumors, but no confirmed reports that there is another type of online snapchat hack that doesn’t steal your financial information, but just bricks your phone, pad, or other electronic device. Freezing as soon as the image or video loads. Since this could be utlimately a fatal error from Snapchat itself it is impossible to say even if this was proven to occur to a device if it was a hack that caused it or a freak error of the coding.

The Worst Headaches You Can Imagine

I resigned myself to just living with excruciating headaches for the rest of my life until a friend suggested I look up Orland Park chiropractors online and make an appointment. I failed to see the connection between severe headaches and chiropractors until I did some research online and saw that there is very much a connection. I thought I got them due to genetics or some dietary deficiency or even stress, but it turns out pinched nerves can cause them. It also turns out that chiropractors can often ease these headaches through various techniques that take pressure off of your nerves.

I was skeptical up until I had my last headache, and boy was it a doozy. It was the worst one yet. I spent days lying in a darkened room because any amount of light would cause extreme pain and nausea. Continue reading

I’ll Feel Better Again Soon with a Little Help

The chiropractor in Bakersfield CA that I met at a work party said I should let him check me over at his office to see if he could help me. He overheard me talking to his wife and explaining that I could no longer work out because I had so many aches and pains that were keeping me down. He leaned in and explained what he does for a living and said he’d like to do what he could to help me heal and get active again. It sounded wonderful. I felt like my body was going to jelly because I hadn’t been able to work out or be active for too long. I also no longer felt healthy anymore because of it.

My wife and kids are pretty active, too. Continue reading

I Slipped on a Slimy Sidewalk and Felt Like I Broke My Back

I slipped on a slimy sidewalk. Have you ever heard of such a thing? I would sue the owner, but it was me. However, our homeowners insurance might cover the medical expenses. I landed hard on my butt and hurt my tailbone. I also hurt my left arm and shoulder. In the course of causing all the bruising and maybe even a broken coccyx, I also twisted my back pretty bad. I saw an MD and a chiropractor in San Francisco for total therapy to resolve the problems. The MD told me only time would help me feel better. I needed time to heal up. When three weeks went by and the tingling and burning sensations continued, I went to the chiropractor.

My back had spasms and trigger points. The therapy included electrical stimulation that felt weird but really helped. The adjustments helped the burning and all the tingling to go away. The nerves where irritated due to the big back twist I did on the way down trying not to fall. Now you may be wondering how we got a slimy sidewalk. Continue reading

I Kind of Hurt My Back

I was not looking for one bedroom apartments in Jackson MS when it happened. I had been living in this big house near the campus, this place where I had lived with five other people since I was a junior in college. The place was great back then. It was just a couple of blocks from the campus and obviously the rent was terrific when you divide it up six ways. Of course it was a dump and it was a mad house most of the time. Now however I think that I may need a chiropractor. I got one of my buddies to help me move and this was a three story apartment block. Continue reading

Renting, Leasing and Property Management for Income

I started into real estate acquisition when I got married. My wife and I both wanted to be able to retire young, but we needed to secure an income we could generate without first spending years in training. We had both dropped out of college and were already in our late twenties when we got married. Using our clean credit and day jobs as buying power, we started buying houses. We both had a course in leasing agent training to get renters to sign leases, and the rest is history.

One purchase lead to another as far as houses and properties were concerned. We have even flipped a couple of houses that were too good to pass up. I had went to school for carpentry as a young man. That nine month course helped me identify what I needed to know about structures that were viable for flipping. Plus, it helped me with sweat equity getting the work done right and cheap when necessary. It was always a balance of time versus money. Continue reading
