A number of years ago when I was a young man in this manufacturing business I told my father that owned it that we needed to start becoming more responsible about waste materials. I broached the subject when a competitor was fined for toxic emissions. We were not doing what they were doing, but we had many questionable practices for what is now called sustainability and being ecologically friendly. My dad wholeheartedly agreed and wanted to avoid even the hint of fines for emissions or waste. We did it on our own back then, and now an environmental consultancy firm helps us stay at the cutting-edge of sustainability for our manufacturing operations. (more…)
I started off with just one employee when I began my business. That quickly grew into three, and now I have 13 people working for me. I recently realized that I am going to have to expand again. This time, I need more than just more employees though. I knew that I was going to need a bigger office, so I started looking rather quickly for that first. I wanted to have that in place before I hired more people. I found a great spot, and I knew that I could hire a company to do office refurb in Bath.
Just looking at the office on its own, it was rubbish. There were stains on the walls, the carpeting looked older than me, and it was so dark in there, even with the lights turned on. (more…)
I accepted a new position within the company I have been working for the past twenty years. I was a little sad that I was going to have to leave my friends and family for a new city but I was excited at the prospects. I went online and searched for apartments in 30339 and found that there were a lot of different listings that would suit my needs. I need to have a dog and I found that there are not a lot of buildings that want to have dogs in them. Since I was going to be moving from literally one coast to the other, I knew how important it would be for me to be able to keep my dog with me. (more…)
I come from a very competitive family. We are very athletic, and it is not uncommon at all for there to be a wager on a group sporting event. We all love to ride, hike, swim and golf, but one thing I had never done was clay pigeon shooting. When my two brothers started learning more about the sport, I knew that there was going to be a challenge thrown sooner rather than later. I decided that I was going to beat them at their own game though. They probably figured since I am a woman, they could easily beat me in what they considered a man’s game. (more…)
Crime is not bad where I live, but I know that can change at anytime. When I was a young kid, we were raised to have respect for not only our elders but everyone else too. I have no idea what has gotten into this new generation that’s coming up, but I know that manners and common sense are both often missing. I do feel safe where I live, but I also read the news. That is why I wanted to look into some CCTV kits to see if it was an affordable option for me.
There are many benefits to having this kind of security system installed. One of them has very little to do with crime. I love being able to see who is knocking at the door without having to get up off my chair to answer the door. If it is someone I know, which it is the majority of the time, then I just holler for them to come on in. Yes, I am still one of the ones who leaves their doors unlocked, and I suspect that is going to change soon too. (more…)
Of course I am not a big fan of the new guy in the White House, but that is not going to stop me from taking a job with the Federal government. They are one of the biggest employers in the country and in particular in the area of Maryland, Northern Virginia and the District of Columbia. The pay is good considering I am just out of college and there is plenty of room for advancement. This morning I started to hunt for Silver Spring MD apartments for rent, since that is where the facility is where I am going to be working. (more…)
I told my doctor about the tingling in my fingers, and he told me that it was just a result of nerve damage from my diabetes. I have had neuropathy for years, and this just felt different to me. I didn’t challenge him though because he went to school for a lot more years than I did. What I was not figuring into that train of logic though was that I know my body better than anyone, and this just did not feel right to me. I ended up going to a Sacramento chiropractor after I started researching tingling sensations in people.
I found out that there are actually a lot of things that can cause this kind of sensation, and it irked me that my doctor just discounted it. I knew I would deal with that later, but I wanted to get help with this tingling sensation first. (more…)
