We have had my dog for many years, and he is starting to show signs of slowing down. His joints aren’t the same, and he limps when he overextends himself. I noticed that when my dad’s younger dog comes over, he is limping more because he is trying to keep up with the younger dog. I went to go buy a new dog food that would be good for a dog of his age so I looked online for an Iams senior dog food review that might tell me what other people think of the dog food. (more…)
One thing parents do is try to make the future lives of their children better than what the parents experienced growing up. I grew up poor and so did my wife. My parents were quite old when I came along. My dad retired from work before I was 10. My wife’s parents were still working when I met her in my 20s. My wife and I struggled to get by day to day. We wanted to improve the potential of our children to provide for themselves even more. We provided Singapore physics tuition at the first sign of them struggling. It is funny how they both had trouble with the same class only a year apart from one another.
They both had the same teacher for the same grade level. I really thought that it might be the teacher not being able to effectively convey the needed information to the students in a way that they would get it. (more…)
My husband worked his way up in his company until he was the second in command. This was not something that happened overnight, so he can appreciate that climb up the ladder that most every worker wants to experience. However, he ended up having to use a Bristol recruitment agency when he needed to hire a high level executive rather than promote from within like he had been. This was not because he did not want to give anyone else the same chances he had been given, but rather that he knew that none of the people applying for the in house promotion were good candidates for what needed to be handled in the job that was created.
He knew that he had a fine team underneath him, but the simple truth is that none of them had the educational requirements or the experience to handle the job duties. (more…)
As the human resources director at my company, I have been given the task of helping organize our annual employee appreciation dinner and party. This is an event that everybody enjoys and looks forward to all year. Each year we try to make it more fun and exciting than the previous one. We are always looking for the most spectacular corporate event entertainment available. The planning committee has found a new entertainment company that has many different avenues we can explore to show our employees how valuable they are to us.
I have been doing a bit of research on this new company and am putting together a proposal to present at our next meeting. (more…)
Sisters do not really talk about their styles or looks, and I don’t think they talk much about issues they may have with their body parts. My sister and I are close, but we never had much conversation about how we perceive our looks. Then I discovered my sister was trying a couple of different best breast enhancement creams. I knew then that she thought about herself in much the same way that I do. We both inherited the genes of small breasts that run in our family, and we both wanted to do something about it.
The women in our family have resorted to different methods to increase their bust sizes. (more…)
I learned to bake wonderful things when visiting my grandmother as a child and teen. Prior to her passing away, she made me promise that I would keep on making the things she taught me to make. I am keeping that promise, and I decided to do that by opening a bakery of my own. I learned of a great commercial kitchen to rent, then I found out where to get commercial equipment financing in Toronto so that I could get all of the things I needed to put in the rented kitchen. It didn’t happen overnight, but it was not that hard to do either because I was so determined.
A lot of people think that their grandparents are special, but not everyone has the close bond that I did with my grandmother. As a single mom taking care of 4 children, my mom sometimes needed a break. (more…)
Out of the blue my wife and I were hit with anxiety and depression. We had been through a particularly hard time with close family a few months prior. We got through it, but the downside was that the harm came out in depression and severe anxiety a few months later. We were having a hard time keeping our jobs and doing everything else we needed to get done. A professional who was helping us through our issues suggested we hire a part time helper in Singapore to help around the house.
It surprised us to see how affordable the service was. The helper was way more than just a helper. The bright personality cheered us both up. Getting the housework done each day also boosted our moods. Unless you are going through it, you might not realize how hard it is to get even the dishes and the laundry done. (more…)
My brother has been working on the social media accounts of several politicians that are starting to try to run for office in two years. He said that he knew that they were going to have to get more people to follow them. The people he is working for are lucky because he knows exactly what to do like buy instagram followers that will follow your account and like your pictures so that other people will see them liking the account. When people look at what their friend’s activities are online, they will see if they can to determine if they should also like the same posts or accounts. I think that people want to fit in with their friends and social groups, and they will like certain posts if they think that their friends or family will see their activity and determine how it suits their personal agenda.
My brother was telling me that when people like a post, it gets the post higher up on the feed, and will allow more people to see it when they log into their app. I did not think of this, but I have noticed that my social media ads are geared towards things that I like or they are related to things that I may have looked up in my search browser. It kind of can be scary if you think about how much your computer knows about you. If someone went to look at your personal information on your feed then they would be able to tell a lot about things that you like or look up. If you accidentally look something up online, then it may become part of the system that will gear ads towards you and that could get somewhat awkward if someone else sees it by mistake.
I’ve been having the best time doing clay pigeon shooting in Bristol over the last month. I first went with a friend who suggested checking it out with him. I enjoyed shooting so much that I just had to come back. It’s pretty much taken over all of the other hobbies in my life. I used to be into video games and woodworking, but I haven’t had much time for that since shooting. Although I like those hobbies, the feeling of hitting a clay pigeon just can’t be topped by them.
I’ve meet some cool people at the shooting area. Many people have been coming there for years to practice, but there are also many who come there for the first time, like I did. You can tell who is coming for the first time by the way they walk, look around the shooting area, and when they take their first shot. The novices are a little unsure of themselves, which is understandable since they’ve never shot before. (more…)
When both of my daughters began talking about social media a couple of years ago, I told them both that they could use different social apps with my supervision. At the time, they agreed. However, they have both become rather sneaky lately. This led me to begin using a handy Snapchat hack app so that I can keep an eye on them both while they use that app. Things are not as simple as they were back in the 70s and 80s, and I truly believe that every parent needs to pay attention to what their kids are doing today.
I remember how good it was just to be a kid when I was growing up. I got to play outside all day after school and all throughout holiday breaks. (more…)
