I had everything planned for my wedding. It shouldn’t have come as a surprise to me that something would go wrong though, mainly because of how perfectly everything was up to that point. The church where I was to be married at told me they had double booked the church and wanted me to change my date. I refused, so instead I found a church in a neighboring town to hold the ceremony. I was able to secure the services of a transport company in singapore so none of my guests would need to be inconvenienced.
Though the new church is only about 15 miles away, I still didn’t want them to have to travel that distance since most of them are not familiar with this area anyway. Most of them had booked their hotels by this point, so we agreed that the buses would just pick everyone up at their hotels and transport them to the church. After the ceremony, they would transport everyone back to the hotel ballroom where our reception is to be held. I had quite a few people come up to me and comment on how I handled the situation.

I won’t deny that I went to satellite after finally surrendering to my cable company. Clearly, Time Warner didn’t care about my money or even my happiness as a customer. Their infrastructure has become so bloated as to make them difficult to work with which is, of course, the natural state of any monopoly burdened by the bureaucracies of our society. When I began to make the switch to DirecTV, I was prepared to accept the worst and go about my business as I always have. Let me tell you; Direct TV HD is rad! I’m not sure how they’ve done it but the HD quality from DirecTV is far superior than Time Warner’s. Continue reading
When I was hired on as a property manager for a large apartment complex, I knew that my work was cut out for me. My predecessor did not appear to have done much other than play video games, so I had to start from the ground up in reforming things. One of my first considerations was hiring a professional snow removal service since it was in the middle of winter. During our first heavy snowfall, I was surprised to find a single pickup truck with a snow plow on the front trying to clear the parking lots and drives of snow.
That seemed so outrageous to me, considering that amount of lots that needed to be cleared. No wonder so many people had been complaining. I went online and did a search for snow removal companies, and I was able to find one that is located in the same area. I could have submitted a request form right there on the site, but this was an urgent matter so I just contacted them over the phone instead. Continue reading
Comic book collecting can be an expensive hobby. While there are times when you may be targeting a certain issue and you don’t mind spending money for it, at other times, you may just want to build your collection with free or cheap comic books. You can often find some great comic books this way as well. The following advice will help you add to your collection for little to no money.
Did you know that there is such a thing as Free Comic Book Day? Every year, most publishers will give away comic books at stores around the country. They usually provide a pretty good selection as well. Continue reading
Few collectibles are as interesting as comic books and the products they inspire. Comic book collectors are not just interested in the value of their items, but are often very invested in the history and cultural significance of their collections. Super heroes also make the best subject matter for box office hit movies, creating real life super stars in the process.
Comic books were originally available for around a dime per book when they hit the newsstands in the 1930′s. Until the late 1980′s, the thin books could be purchased for under a dollar, making them accessible to collectors of all ages. Prices have increased considerably since then, with new comics selling for $3 to $4 each. This may make it more difficult for most kids to stock up at the newsstand, but they still sell by leaps and bounds.
Avid collectors look not only for comic books, but also for accessories such as toys, clothing, and household items. Most people have owned at least one Superman or similar item in their lifetime, even if they were not serious collectors. Continue reading
