Holiday Dinner Was Almost a Disaster

There is nothing like planning a holiday dinner for ten of your family members only to discover that the stove is broken. That’s why I was in a rush online to find a major appliance repair in Sacramento, and I needed one five minutes ago. People were set to show up in an hour and I had a stove that was dead. I had my husband check the obvious things like the breaker box and checking to see if the stove came unplugged. Nothing wrong there. In a panic I had images of having to take all ten people to a local Chinese restaurant like in that holiday movie.

Then there was the issue of thinking it’s the holidays there is no way on earth someone will come out here to fix the stove, and even if they did it would cost a bundle just to have them step in the front door. Continue reading

Best Pricing for Beautiful Shutters

I am watching this basketball game right now, and I am kind of annoyed by all of the kids in the house, as they should be asleep, but they are still up and also making a lot of noise at that. I wish I had my own man cave to sleep in and watch television in. I don’t think that will happen soon though, and so i have been reading about orange county shutters because that is one of the things that we are going to want to have put on the house soon.

My wife and I have decided that our house has been the same for far too long. Continue reading

An Alarm System Keeps Our Winter Home Safe

My wife and I have always been lovers of the outdoors. We lived in Florida for many years, and we spent most of our time at the beach. While we both love the ocean, my true love has always been the mountains and snow. Last month, my wife surprised me and said that she has felt fortunate that I let her live by the water so long, but now she wanted me to have my dream. She said we should buy a little cabin in Colorado and that we could get ADT Security in Colorado installed in the cabin to keep it safe while we spend the rest of the year in our home state. I told her I would give it some thought, and we could make a decision in a couple of weeks. She thought that was a good plan.

First, I wanted to go over our budget and make sure that we could afford having two homes. I did some digging around on several real estate websites in Telluride to learn about the home prices there. It was much cheaper than I thought it would be. Next, I called a couple of agents to find out to learn more. Continue reading

Getting Peace of Mind Does Not Cost an Arm or a Leg

I just got a divorce last year. I always thought that when I got married that it would be forever. Unfortunately, my ex-husband had other ideas about what marriage really meant. Living on my own has made me a bit nervous because of the crime in our neighborhood. I decided to find out whether I could get ADT in San Francsico after a friend told me that is the security service she uses.

We have had a lot of break-ins in my neighborhood over the past five years. When I was married, it was a really nice thing to feel secure having a husband around. Not only was he an extra pair of eyes in order to keep an extra eye out on what was going on around us, he was comfortable using a baseball bat.

But recently, the people in the home next door to use had their home broken into. They lost a lot of items that are important to them, which is a shame. There are some things that insurance just cannot cover monetarily if they are stolen. I began thinking of all the cherished family mementos I have. I would feel horrible if something were to happen to all the paintings my mom painted before she passed away or the family bible that has been passed through our family for three generations.

When I spoke to ADT, they were really helpful in answering all my questions. I was not sure how much service would be, but I was really happy to find out just how affordable it is. In fact, it costs less than my monthly phone bill every month. It is interesting to know that something as important as peace of mind costs less than phone service or many of the other types of entertainment that I pay for each month.

Working on My Newest Project

This is a duplex, it is on a quiet little street just off of Walker Avenue and not far from the place I just finished over there. It is probably about three quarters of a mile. The place was cheap, apparently it had been embroiled in a big dust up between the heirs. A lot of times these people fight over stuff so long and hard that it just turns to nothing right before their eyes. I met one of them at a Los Angeles shutters place, while I was working on the previous project. Continue reading

Working on the House I Bought

I only bought this house because of the convenience and the price. It is three doors down from my place and it is big enough for my family to grow a bit more in. The reason I could afford is that no one had taken care of it for a couple of years. In fact some guy had gone up there in the middle of the night and stolen the plantation shutters off the sides of the houses. No one probably noticed it for a good while as the house sits back off the road and you can not see the sides of it unless you walk around and stand right there. It seems like an odd thing to do, but I guess that they needed four sets of shutters just like those for their own project. Continue reading
