They Gave My Grandson a Second Chance

Standard

When I needed to hire a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney, I had no idea where to turn. My grandson did not have the best upbringing, and his actions certainly reflect that. However, I am not ready to quite throw in the towel on him, because I know that there is a lot of good lurking deep below all the emotional scars that he has built over time. He joined a gang about six months ago, and I urged him to get out before he was in too deep for his own good. He thought it was just grandmotherly ramblings, but it did not take him long to find out I was right.

He along with several other members of the gang had robbed a woman at gunpoint. She was not physically hurt, but I know the fear of what happened will probably remain with her forever.

I’m an Animal Lover Who Needed Help

Standard

I just love all the geese that fly around the woods in the neighborhood where my home is. I love their colors. I love the way they sound, too. I have never had the luck to live near them before. But I learned that they can also become a pest problem, as well. My neighbors and I discussed that I might need to get Canada geese control in NJ after the geese began attacking me at random times.Animal Lover

I do not want to hurt animals. And I never will. It is scary, though, to walk outside your home on a Saturday morning in your robe and slippers, and the geese come at you out of nowhere. I have to go outside each morning to get my newspaper delivery, and out of the 5 days I went out to get it last week, the birds came after me four times.

I decided to try to be sneaky and look out the window before I went outside. I would wait until I thought they were busy, and then I would rush outside. Of course, I made sure to be very quite so that I would not alert them. That worked two times. The other two times, they saw me and came after me immediately. Both times, I raced back inside again. This was not good for them or me.

The majority of these birds leave people alone. But in random situations, they become very territorial. I understand that fully. To them, I was on their property, not the other way around. They wanted me gone and did what they could to try to protect their territory. I called a place that could do something about it. They promised that they are very gentle and only relocated the birds. They did that for me and I can now go outside in peace.

Reliant Energy Has a Lot Going for Them

Standard

I had heard so many good things about Reliant Energy, so I decided to investigate a bit to see if I should switch over to them as my energy supplier. I had been using another company, but they honestly did not mean much to me. I wouldn’t be heartbroken to keep them or get rid of them, which is why I wanted to know more about Reliant. I was able to find out all of the information that I needed on http://www.texasenergycompanies.net/reliant-energy-texas/, which is a website that helps Texas residents understand just what each energy provider is doing for their customers.

The first thing I saw was that one and a half million customers use Reliant, so that was a good starting point for me. They not only provide residential homes with energy but a lot of the major businesses in the area as well. The next thing I learned was about their rate plans.

Looking at a Place in the South Bay Area

Standard

We are looking for a place some place closer to Santa Clara, but still in San Francisco. I was looking at this place today and I really like it, but it was probably way too expensive. This was a three bedroom place with ADT home security in San Francisco and in one of the better parts of the city. Of course this is one of the parts of the city where they have a lot of really old houses and this one is beautiful, but my guess is that it would be really expensive to keep it up. I am looking for something that is going to as easy as possible for me to manage.

Don’t Get Stuck with Bad Cable TV

Standard

The website www.cable-tv.com/cox/arizona/prescott/ came in very handy when I was looking for a cable provider. Finding the right cable provider is not as easy as you might think. There are many companies that promise you the perfect package of cable television and internet and even digital phone service, but when you actually get the product installed into your home you live to regret it very quickly. Well at least that was the case for me.

Picture it, I had moved into my first apartment after graduating from college and I had saved up all of my money and bought a great HDTV and I was ready to get the full cable HD experience. I called a few local cable companies and decided on one. The service guy finally came to install it, after missing two appointments in which I had to miss work to be there for him.

Finding Contentment with What We Have

Standard

Scoring a place in the Water Ford Creek Apartments has been a life saver for me. School had just ended and I suddenly found myself without a place to live! I mean, it’s not like this was going to be the first time that I had been forced to crash in my car for a while but it’s not the optimal choice to make – just imagine trying to sleep in the most uncomfortable place you can imagine; like the back of a Volkswagen! There’s just no way to do it without something like a van to give you enough space.

Doing Some Work in Miami for a Friend

Standard

I am not all that unhappy about losing my job back in High Point to be honest. It got me out of a pretty brutal Winter up in the Carolinas and I have spent the past six months down in Miami working for an old friend of mine. He and I were in the US Marine Corps together about a dozen or so years ago, but he had an uncle who gave him a job managing some miami luxury condos when he got out of the Corps. I just happened to tell him that I was out of work on Facebook and he told me that he was going to need someone to do his job. I was interested obviously, and once I realized what an easy job it was I was a lot more interested.
