A Luxury Apartment Close to the College

My husband applied for a job at Georgia Tech, and we were both extremely excited when he got it. It did mean we had to move from Maine to Georgia, but this was something I was eagerly looking forward to. I knew we did not have a lot of time to do this since they wanted him to start immediately. That is just one of the advantages of living in an apartment, because we didn’t have to deal with selling a house. I did a search for Midtown West apartments in Atlanta because I wanted to get the process started as quickly as possible.

I wanted to get an apartment that is close to his new job because neither one of us wanted him to have a long commute time. I was very fortunate in finding the 935M apartments on my first try. These are very chic apartments that are nicer than what I thought they would be.…

I Found a New Website That is Fun to Read

I like to learn new things. I like trivia, health tips, food ideas and scientific tidbits of information. Some of the stuff I use in daily life. Some of it is just knowing things to bring up in conversation. I pick up a lot of tips, tricks and trends at Infoboil. It is a really interesting website. It is a website that has panels to choose from that provides info on just about any subject. I saw one this morning about a vegetarian burger that looks like real meat. It is supposed to taste like meat too. Our current protein system is not really sustainable for the number of people on earth, so this could be a viable and tasty alternative.

There is a ton of information like that at the Infoboil website. I admit to spending a little too much time reading tips, tricks and trends at Infoboil. You know how you spend too much time on your social media pages and then feel like you just wasted a big chunk of time? Well, if you hang around reading stuff at Infoboil, you don’t feel like you wasted time. You actually learn stuff.…

Picking a Better Limo Company for a Fun, Clean and Comfortable Ride

You can use a party bus to get you and your group from one place to another such as going to a concert or game. However, you can also use one as a rolling party. You pick a route and your party is contained on the bus and just stays on the move. I would suggest you get the big bus from Diamond Party Bus in Toronto if you are going to do that. It is the one with the bathroom in it. You know that a bathroom is needed for any sort of party. The nice thing about a party bus is that when you rent one it comes with a professional driver, and it is cleaned to feel like you are the first customer to use it.

I have seen some limo companies that do not take excellent care of their fleet. You really need to rent from a place that takes pride in their fleet of limos whether the limo is a big sedan, SUV, stretch limo or a party bus.…

Making My Party Bus Dream a Reality

People take buses all the time. Some people use their smartphones while the riding on the bus. Other people read the newspaper. Other people take in the scenery and daydream. That’s what I love to do while I’m riding the bus. Last night on the way home from work, I found myself daydreaming about being on a party bus rather than the regular city bus. In my daydream, a stranger handed me a business card that had visite our party buses printed on it. I remember that phrase so vividly, because it reminded me of the way some words are spelled differently in Toronto.

My vision stuck with me when I got home. I immediately went online and started looking at party buses in the area.…

Get the Look You Want and Stop Worrying About the Rest

I am happy to have a pretty face. Seriously, I never take it for granted. I’m not being vain. I have smooth skin, a deep brown color to my eyes and good symmetry. Plus, I have great teeth. However, the girls in my family all have very short and thin eyelashes. And all of us have tried various things to get them to look longer and fuller. I have tried every mascara and even tried false eyelashes. I heard about how I could buy Careprost online and how it helps to grow longer and thicker eyelashes.

When you first started to read this, I imagine you might have thought me to be a bit arrogant saying I have a pretty face. Then you saw I have an issue with my looks that troubles me. I say that to point out that I think that all of us girls have things we like and do not like about our looks.…

Started to Look for a House

I have decided that I am going to look for a house, but of necessity it would have to be a small one. Of course this makes a good bit of sense for me, since I could get up the down payment for a small house, especially if it was not in perfect shape. At any rate I realize that this is not that simple of a process and I wonder whether or not you need to enlist the services of a realtor for Denver to make it simpler. Obviously that is going to cost you some money, but if someone really knows what they are doing that is going to make the whole thing a lot easier and in theory they might save you a bit of money. In fact you know that they are going to want to come out of the process with a profit, this is America and we believe in Capitalism with a big C.

At any rate I have decided that renting is just a big waste of money. All of the apartments I see on the market are wildly overpriced to start with.…

Skills You Need to Restore a Classic Car

Restoring a classic car can be a scary topic for some people. There are a lot of different types of work that goes into a classic car restoration and most people are not skilled at all of them. When you break the process down into the types of repairs that go into your classic car restoration, it’s easier to come to grips with what you really can or can’t do yourself.

An accounting of your skills can help you decide how much work you can do yourself, and how much of the restoration work you should get done by a professional.

Your classic car restoration can be broken down into a few repair categories.

  • Knowing your car,
  • Mechanical repairs
  • Electrical repairs
  • Interior or upholstery work
  • Sheet metal or rust repair
  • Surface preparation and refinishing
  • Auto body and painting
  • Trim or molding repair and refinishing

Some of these categories are self explanatory. Allow me to clarify the ones that aren’t so obvious.

Knowing your car

Cars have always been available with options like sport trim packages, air conditioning, V8, 6 cylinder, or 4 cylinder engines, and the list goes on. As the car gets on in years, some of these options get removed from the vehicle, replaced with something substandard, or never replaced at all. Option codes and shop manuals are generally available for most American classic cars that detail this information.

Mechanical repairs

This covers a lot of what makes up a car and would be most of the moving parts. You’ll find the engine and transmission will need rebuilding, as well as all the regular maintenance repairs like brakes and suspension, and rebuilding components parts like starters, water pumps, and generators. Other components that rarely get considered are the under dash parts like heater or vent controls, window parts inside the doors, hinges, and latches. I’m only touching on the subject, but you get the idea.

Electrical repairs

Electrical can be the scariest of them all. On an old vehicle the sheathing on the wiring can be dry rotted, and cracked and brittle creating the risk of an electrical short. Switches wear out and even fall apart. On some vehicle where these parts are impossible to find, you’ll need to be creative and improvise by using parts from another vehicle make.

Interior or upholstery work

Cloth, vinyl, leather, threading, and stuffing or padding materials all dry rot over time and need to be replaced. Colors fade really bad as well.

Sheet metal or rust repair

Any metal made with iron will rust, even aluminum will oxidize and even disintegrate under the right conditions. The body sheet metal will need to be replaced or patched. This means knowing how to work with sheet metal, how to weld, and even how to shape metal.

Surface preparation and refinishing

Other than the exterior of the car body, there is a lot of sheet metal surface that will need to be stripped of old paint and surface rust, then prepared so it won’t …
