Sand Saved My Savings

Don’t try this at home. I was a gambler, down to my last grand. I was at the track (of course) and losing something fierce. I was waiting for the 8th race because I had a tip. I promised myself no wagering until then, but hey, you know the story. If you put drugs out for a fiend at noon and say wait until 5, good luck!

I couldn’t buy a win, but this tip said the horse was switching from turf (grass) to dirt for the first time. My source said it was a “sure thing”. Something to do with training and pedigree. I didn’t ask too many questions. I just put my money down and said a little prayer. And plain old silica sand made all the difference. Amazingly, that horse wired the field. I made my money, got help, (still do) and haven’t placed a bet since.

Another Monday

I hit snooze on my alarm one too many times, which put me behind my normal schedule. I skipped my workout, made my coffee and then proceeded to leave it on the counter, which is huge waste – not to mention my lack of coffee.

Of course, leaving later than usual resulted in me catching every single red light on the way to the interstate. All I could think about was getting some of the mediocre coffee once I got to work. I knew the pot would be nearly drained and I’d have to resort to the bitter bottom of the pot unless someone happened to have started a new pot.

Disgusting bottom coffee in hand I went to my office and realized that I should be getting a new order of invoice sheets, which immediately brightened my day. I guess you have to appreciate the small things like NCR pads.

What You Don’t Know

So, what you don’t know can indeed hurt you. This is coming from experience folks. I’d like to tell you a little bit about my run in with silica sand. Rather, I’d like to tell you about my run in with concrete, which has silica sand in it.

So, many people realize that fences require posts to be put in a hole in the ground and that hole filled with concrete. As I knew this, I went to the store, purchased bags of concrete, and began mixing it myself. I got the fence put up no problem, and it still stands today. However, it was a day or to afterwards that I started coughing heavily, and boy did my chest hurt.

What happened, according to doctors, was that I failed to wear a respirator while dealing with my concrete. Concrete has silica sand in it. Silica sand can, but thank God didn’t, cause silicosis if you inhale enough of it. Silicosis can cause tuberculosis and other infections. I got a minor case of lung irritation.

Talk to all the silica sand suppliers in the world and they’ll tell you, wear a mask if you deal with silica sand!

Grateful For My Friend’s Advice!

I never would have thought about using a web design agency until a friend recommended it to me. But now that I have used it I can’t believe that I didn’t think about it sooner! It has helped me out so much in building up my website and I am forever grateful to my friend for pointing me in the right direction. My web page was a mess before I had the agency fix it up for me. Now, everything is looking so much better and I am proud of the website that I own. My friend really knew what she was talking about when she told me to go with the agency and I am glad that I decided to take her advice. From me to you, if your website is a mess, go with some professionals to help you out.

Fixing Up My New Apartment

It was so fun to fix up my new apartment when I was just starting out as a college-age adult. There were so many little things to buy that I always thought would just be the job of the adults in my family. Now that I was an adult, it was fun to buy and experiment with all these things. When I first moved out to Chester, there were a lot of little furniture stores to shop at, and I didn’t really know which one to shop at. I went to the curtains, blinds, shades, and furniture store first. This was fun because I purchased some blinds Manchester at one of these stores that were antique and beautiful. They were incredibly good-looking, and they really matched the look of the other items in my own home. It was so great to pick out things that were matching at first, rather than having to rely on things that looked mismatched. That was really bad.

My Homely Additions

My friend recently renovated their house and I just love what they did to their living room. It originally was a carpeted and curtain ensemble of greens and blues. They turned it into a lush and decadent arrangement of soft pastels complimented by wooden fixtures. Their choice of shutters Manchester is what really caught my eye because I was never really fond of them, but theirs are really beautiful. Their living room windows are huge with high arches so I was concerned they were going to have a hard time finding something that would fit perfectly. What they chose was amazing and even affordable. They had some custom made knotty alder wood shutters installed that really accented the windows nicely. They let in the perfect amount of sunlight and gave the room an added touch of style and grace. I will be renovating soon and will definitely choose this feature.

Ending those single life blues

Online meeting sites are something that are very popular these days as they are a nice place where single people can meet and hopefully be able to find the man or woman of their dreams. These sites are best known as mature dating sites and believe you me they are a very excellent way to get over the single life blues.

Advertisements for these sites can be found all over and they all have had numerous success stories. I can attest to that as I have been able to meet and hookup with several women and I can tell you that I had a very good time with each and every one of them. It doesn’t matter how big or small you are or how near or far away that you may be from a person, these sites will help you conquer those single life blues.

The Right Projects for the Home

I live in an area that tends to deal with a lot of harsh weather conditions. Because of this, I knew I needed a type of pavement option that was going to stand up to the test of time and deal with each of the different weather patterns that happened to be coming our way. This is why I chose permeable paving for my own benefit and the benefit of my home.

The paving I chose is great for my area, and it is doing a wonderful job of actually making the house stand out and look beautiful. I never knew how much value this type of project could actually put onto the home, and it’s something I am very thankful that I decided to have done by the experts. It’s the type of project I continually recommend to other people who happen to be living in my area as well.
