I was able to use the Start-up Visa business plan to move to the UK and start my own business. The business is based on an idea that I had when I was just a kid. I would always use a flashlight and hated when my batteries would run out. I came up with an idea of a flashlight that ran on a battery powered by water. I knew nothing about chemistry as a kid, but I just knew that there had to be some kind of way to make a flashlight light that. It would be usable anywhere that there was an available water source.
Many years have passed since I came up with that idea, and I made a prototype for the water powered flashlight. I presented my idea to be approved so that I would be able to get a Visa. I wanted to set up my business in the UK because I thought it was one of they best markets that was full of diverse people who were open to new ideas. I had a feeling that they would be very receptive to the idea of a flashlight that would work with water.
After my idea was approved, I scouted a location that would become the production site for my flashlight. I hired some people to help me with the production, acting as production managers and assemblers. Right before my eyes, it was all coming together, and I was going to see my simple prototype turn into a real product that people everywhere could use. The first flashlight off the line was given to me, and I put it in my office as a keepsake. Many people have taken well to the flashlight. People who do a lot of hiking and camping have really liked the flashlight because of how useful it is in the wild.
I had all kinds of problems with my teeth. The first thing is that I lost a lot of them over the years. I was chewing my food on one side of my mouth because of it. Then I got a partial for the lower teeth. I still had to chew on one side because I was missing teeth on the right side. My cheek on the left side got thicker due to only using that side to chew. Then I started to bite my cheek often while chewing. I found a place that does cosmetic dentistry in Greenwood Village when I had enough. I went in and got a full exam.
My old partial was examined, and there were new things available that would look a whole lot better. I told them my goal was to have a perfect smile. I did not just want functionality, I wanted great aesthetics. I wanted a Hollywood smile. I had heard from other dentists to get teeth that matched my age. That made no sense to me.

My brother got transferred to a new division of his company very quickly. He did not have to go, but he made the quick decision to boost his career. He was doing an excellent job as an entry-level manager. No other manager in the history of the company was able to accomplish what he did in such a short time. He only had a bachelors degree, and was offered a better manager’s position for a struggling satellite office of the company in South Carolina. He had to get a place fast, so I found http://www.parkatbouldercreek.com for him. He needed something affordable, because he was not going to just start upping his lifestyle because of the promotion.
Ever since he was a kid he has been telling everyone that he will retire at 32.5 years of age. Continue reading I Helped My Brother Find a Nice Apartment in South Carolina
I founded a video game storefront with some friends a few years ago. It started out small, but with some effort, we were able to get a lot of publishers and developers to put their games on our store. In order to bring more revenue to the store, we decided to have a giant sale, where everything on the store would be discounted by an amount that was agreed upon by us and the developers and publishers. We used a chief data officer to help us determine which games would benefit from having more discounted sales.
Since people are more likely to buy games that are on sale, we expected a lot of purchases from those who have been dragging their feet about buying a game. Continue reading The Biggest Digital Sale of the Year
For years I had always thought about having my own home, and now I finally have one. Before buying the home, I stayed in a pretty nice apartment. It wasn’t the biggest, but it had just enough space for my needs. I was left with the task of cleaning the apartment after moving out. Since I was doing all of the moving on my own, I knew that I would be too exhausted to do anything after that. I decided to take the easy way out by hiring post tenancy cleaning in Singapore.
It’s a good thing that I did hire the cleaning agency, because I was feeling a little sore after doing the moving. Continue reading Cleaning for the Exhausted Man
I have been really working my butt off since I started back to school a couple of months ago. I had taken a semester off so that I could work full time and the truth is that I am doing that now, but instead of working a job all the time I am doing a part time job and jc physics tuition for about half a dozen students. I get up very early in the morning four days a week, the job I have is to open up a restaurant that serves breakfast for great crowds of people. So you get up long before the sun rises and we work furiously until around ten in the morning. Of course I go to school before that. Continue reading I Am Busy Day and Night Now

Our neighbor is elderly but has no family to help her. My wife and I kind of adopted her as a grandmother. She does not have a lot of money, so we help her out with things. She is friendly and other neighbors help her out too. She cannot do the things she used to be able to do, and we had a change in our work where we have to put in more hours. Instead of my wife cleaning her place, we had to look into hiring a cleaning company in Singapore to do the job. We had to weigh the cost of the service or not working the hours at our job. It was still financially beneficial to work the hours and pay for help to clean our neighbor’s place.
She did not want us to be doing that, but we insisted. Continue reading Cleaning Service Helps Our Elderly Neighbor and Frees Up Time for Us Too
I’m not one of those people who always know about the easy things to do when you need a solution to a problem. I guess I just don’t pay attention to a lot of details in life. So, it was a surprise when I met a bakersfield chiropractor who told me what he does for a living and told me to make an appointment with him so that he could she what might be possible to help with the extreme back pain I’d had to deal with for too many years. I knew what chiropractors did, but I’d never done any research about them to learn exactly how they can help.
It is frustrating to hurt some part of your body and then quickly learn just how lucky you were to have that part of your body working before you hurt it. It is common to injure something, and then you find yourself trying not to use that body part so that you don’t feel more pain. Continue reading Help with Pain That Solves the Problem Instead of Masking It
One of the great joys of my job is I move around a lot. I have lived in many different countries. One of my favorite places is Singapore. I moved there a year ago to help my company set up a new office. Thankfully I find great short term housing wherever I go, but I also want to find a home cleaning company to help me keep my property clean. Plus a good company will clean it to the point that I always get my deposit back. I did a search for pre and post tenancy cleaning for Singapore. This time when I went to work in Singapore I found a lovely three bedroom condo to live in. I have a girlfriend and she was coming to Singapore too so I needed to make sure it would be comfortable for her too. But I also didn’t want her to feel like she needed to clean it either. She works and would be busy too. Continue reading Keep the Condo Perfect with Them
We started traveling during the winter months back home. We had never been to different countries before, and we wanted our daughter to have that experience as a young teenager. One thing I noticed is that no matter how many grand things you see and experience in traveling the world, you still do the same old stuff from place to place. You might try the local cuisine wherever you are at, but you still are just eating. My wife and daughter talked me into a manicure and pedicure in Singapore. I had never had one before. I do my own toenails, and I often bite my own fingernails. Yes, there are still grown men that do that. I have working hands with a few rough spots, uneven nails and awful cuticles. My toenails actually looked a whole lot better.
I was kind of surprised at how good the nail technician got my fingernails looking. They were all shiny and even. Continue reading I Got My First Manicure and Pedicure Halfway Around the World
My mom has a regular maid who does all of the housework as well as the majority of the shopping for them. She has her own small apartment over the garage at my parent’s house, and it is an arrangement that works for all of them. My parents also give her three weeks off every year, though she can take more if she needs it. When she does go off, they hire a part time cleaner in Singapore to come and help them out for however long their regular maid is going to be gone.
I think the loyalty they show to their maid is amazing, and she feels the same way about them. She has been with them for nearly ten years, and I know that she will be with them for much longer than that in the coming years. Continue reading We Both Use Part Time Cleaners
Getting a gel manicure in Singapore is the best thing that has happened to me for some time. I’m a bit lazy when it comes to keeping up appearances with things like my nails. I don’t really care to use nail polish or get manicures because I’m a busy person and in an industry where no one pays attention to your hands. I suppose if I was a professional greeter or hostess or worked in the entertainment industry I would care about it more. But I got invited to a friend’s wedding and I felt the pressure to look my best.
I looked around for nail salons, and read a lot of reviews about all of them, and most of them didn’t seem to be that great. I almost always found a couple of reviews complaining about the work or the person doing the work. I also started seeing things about gel manicures. Continue reading You Can’t Beat the Gleaming Nails
Thanks to a Camas chiropractor, I no longer have pain in my ankles! I’m just beside myself that after all these years I no longer have to worry about the pain and soreness I’ve had since I was a teenager. What is truly surprising is that the pain came from something that I absolutely did not suspect. I thought I had weak ankles, or that some forgotten injury caused permanent damage. I even considered I had nerve damage. I’ve heard about neuropathy and thought maybe I had a touch of that condition. Whatever the case, I finally got sick of the pain.
My regular doctor went so far as to do some scans on my ankles and said he couldn’t see anything wrong. He suggested I lose some weight, but we both sort of knew that was ridiculous because I’m not overweight in the slightest except for a slight stomach paunch. That is hardly enough weight to cause ankle pain. My pain usually flared up at certain times, with the worst sensation being a feeling of the muscle just going weak when I was walking. A few times I felt like I was going to fall down because my ankle just felt like it gave out.
By the time I went to the chiropractor, I was willing to try anything to get rid of this long term problem. He asked me several questions, examined my ankles, and then asked about my nutritional intake. I thought that was odd, but it turns out it was the perfect question because I’m deficient in magnesium. A severe magnesium deficiency can cause muscle weakness and pain, and in my case it manifested in that weird feeling in my ankles. I merely bought some supplements and I’m right as rain now. I didn’t even need any stretching to fix this problem.
When my daughter asked me if we had a water filter for shower, I had no idea what she was talking about. I told her that we use filtered water for drinking, but that filter is in the kitchen. She asked me about the water in the shower though and how we are filtering it. Again, I had no idea what she was even asking because I had just never heard of people filtering their shower water. She explained what she had learned in school that week, which was how all kinds of pollutants get into our water.
Most kids had water filters in their kitchens at home, but only a couple knew that they had a shower filter. Continue reading Our Showers Are Much Cleaner Now
When I interviewed for a new company in Texas, I was really happy to learn that they would help me with the moving costs associated with moving across the country. It could be very expensive to move an entire apartment, considering you have to pay people to pack your things very carefully. I knew to click here for a person to help me find a place to live in my new city. There are a lot of people that can help you find a home in your new area. These relocation people can help you find the best schools in the area if you have a family and that is a concern for you. Continue reading Texas Living is Big Dreaming
I did not need anything really fancy, but I didn’t want anything cheap either. I was looking for a nice apartment, and I knew that I was going to have to find one quickly. That is why I decided to start my search of apartments online. I knew if I went to various apartments in Simpsonville and looked at all of them, it would take me way too long. I needed to find something within a day or so, and I needed to be able to move in quickly too.
As soon as I saw photos of the Arbors at Fairview apartments, I knew that I wanted to call one of those apartments my very own. I was happy with the price of the one bedroom units, and I really liked the layout of the floor plan too. I was able to look at everything I needed online, from the actual look of the apartment and the dimensions of each room to pictures of both the inside as well as outside of the apartment. Continue reading Getting an Apartment Was Easier Than I Expected
Click here, my boss said, and you will have an easier time of living in Atlanta. I’m headed to my bosses old office in that southern city and he helped me find a great place to live. We talked at length about living in Atlanta and my big take away from the conversation is that finding the right place to live is the most important part of the process of moving to that city. I didn’t know it at the time, but Atlanta has the worst commute times in the nation. Apparently Los Angeles is a walk in the park compared to Atlanta.
Obviously, I wanted to live in a place that was close to work. In fact, I wanted to be so close to the office that I didn’t even need to think about a commute time. If I could find a place within walking distance, that would be even better. My plan was to avoid the downtown driving altogether. I have some vision issues and the idea of trying to navigate the city roads scared me. My boss understood this and knew about a great apartment complex very close to the office. Continue reading Enjoy That Exquisite Southern Living
Janet did not have too much time when they decided that she was moving to South Carolina. In fact the company pretty much made her an offer that she could not refuse, they were obviously desperate for her to go down there and fix some serious issues that they had. I am going to figure out what I shall do and move down there pretty soon. If you click here you will see the temporary place where she is staying at right now. She has to have an apartment in the short term, but we are going to have to sell the house and then we can buy another one or maybe build one. I am guessing that it is pretty easy to find a piece of land down there. In fact a lot of the area is nothing except peach orchards and other types of farms. Continue reading We Are Going to Relocate
My wife and I were looking at apartments. She found a lot of cute places, but they all seemed to be designed for personalities unlike ours. She told me that she did not want cute. Rather, she wanted a place that reminded her of a rustic log cabin but had all modern amenities. She came into the living room to get me to come out to the kitchen of our old apartment to see something. She pointed to a link telling me to click here. I did, and I saw the website for The Lodge at Hidden River. I was impressed with the first few pictures I saw, and I had to investigate further.
I was ready to move just for the gym with all of its training equipment. Then I looked at the interior images of the apartments. The design had that perfect mix of rugged appeal with all the modern comforts and amenities. Continue reading We Wanted an Apartment with That Log Cabin Kind of Appeal
Of course I had plenty of time to plan things out. I knew that Jack was going to be going back home and I knew that I needed to find a place on the North side of the city. So I found these places in Lewisville, not too far from Flower Mound if you know where that is. At any rate I found a pretty nice place and I have a roommate too, so it is not going to cost as much as living alone would have cost me. If you like then click here for website on the place, which is called the Bluffs at Vista Ridge. I had about ten days to move out of of my old place, so in that time I have been putting stuff in my car and taking it to work with me. In fact this place is less than half as far from my office as the old place, which is a huge reason why I picked it. Continue reading I Finally Finished Moving Today
I found AlgoRhytm after an incident at my restaurant led to an extraordinarily vicious online review and some amount of damage to my restaurant’s reputation. This was the first time I encountered what many businesses run into when you get nasty customers who lie about your business online due to not getting what they want. In my case it was a bunch of drunks who showed up ten minutes before the restaurant closed and who proceeded to nearly destroy the bathrooms while screaming profanities at the staff. We had to call the police to get rid of them.
About a week later an employee, who keeps up on all the online stuff, alerted me to a bad review left on a well known online review site. I don’t like these sites because anyone can post a review trashing your reputation and they don’t even have to prove that they even visited your establishment. Continue reading Say Goodbye to Bad Online Reviews
