I am not sure how my roof came to sag so much without drawing the attention of anyone in my family. Albeit, it is sagging in a part of the roof that is not visible from a large portion of the yard. Still, for this much damage to happen to the underlying frame, it must have been sagging at least a bit for a couple of years I would think. I have to hire someone for roof installation in Queens NY because it is obvious that we are going to need a new roof put on the house. I am not sure how much of the frame of the roof is damaged, but I am fairly sure that the damage is pretty extensive. Read more… »
My husband told me to find some companies that do HVAC repair in NYC not long ago. He knows that I don’t mind comparing companies to find the best one, but I didn’t even know what kind of company this was. He explained that they take care of heating and air conditioning problems, which was something that we definitely had on our hands. We had someone install a central air conditioning unit for us a few years ago, but it was acting up. When we called the company that installed it, we found out that they had gone out of business.
It didn’t concern my husband that we were scammed, because the make and model of our AC unit is a very popular one. Still, he knew that something was not working right, and he did not want to mess anything up by trying to fix it himself. Read more… »
When you get to the point you need to sue a company, you better have a great lawyer on your side. You know the company you are going up against has a whole team of them on their side. It is important when things come down to having to file suit for a product problem or anything involving a big corporation that you get a powerful attorney. We are in California and hired a Los Angeles litigation lawyer to take our side of a case. Some of the biggest and most powerful firms are already working for the big corporations. You might be surprised to call a place and find out they cannot help you because their firm represents the company or one of its subsidiaries, suppliers or other companies.
Think about the biggest company you know. Imagine how many other companies are involved in providing them raw materials, machinery, supplies or anything they need to run their business. The big lawyer firms may have to not take your case because they already represent someone associated with the corporation. Read more… »

After doing what I could to get out of seeing any dentist for a long time, I found myself in the position of needing one quickly. One of my teeth broke after biting into a simple hamburger. It stunned me when it happened and I panicked. I made some quick phone calls to ask people I knew who the best Grand Rapids dentist is that they knew of. I got some good advice, but then I noticed that three friends all referenced the same dental practice, so that is where I decided that I would go.
Aside from the broken tooth, I knew that I had some cavities that needed to be looked at. Read more… »
Business websites require a lot more involvement than a personal blog does. There is something constantly going on in the business outside of the website that needs to be updated on the website. This could be products, inventory, new services and other things. This gets added to the content of your website. Every article, instruction, image, video, product and service description is content on your website. However, there is a whole lot of stuff that goes on behind the scenes with business websites including everything from hackers trying to get in to techs doing server migration as systems evolve.
Big business websites have teams that manage everything from taking product photos to security experts who monitor those attempts by hackers to force their way in or utilize new exploit discoveries. Like brick and mortar stores who have people who do everything from setting up displays in windows to loss prevention, there is an equivalent for business websites. Read more… »
My wife and I just bought a house in Texas and we are looking forward to moving in and to starting our new lives in the state of Texas. I think that it is going to be a good experience for the two of us. I am not really sure how long it is going to be, exactly, before we move into the new house, but I think it is going to be rather soon. So I am checking out this website for Texas electricity providers and trying to find some info that will help me to pick an electricity provider to go with.
I am pretty sure that we should try to go with the lowest rate available, but maybe there are some other considerations that would be worth taking into mind before we make our choice. I do not know much about electricity in Texas, except for the fact that it is not regulated here and so there are a lot of companies to choose from, which is something that I can say I have never experienced before. But it is kind of nice to have choices, I can tell you that much.
I like to have choices with regards to pretty much anything, because when one company is the only company that you can buy smiting from, there is nothing really stopping them from making you pay whatever they want. It’s like the company that made a ridiculous increase in the price of some medication that is used to treat AIDS. Absolutely deplorable, but they were the only company that could make the medicine at the time due to copyright protections or whatever, and so they were able to do that. Of course, the guy in charge of the company is in jail now, but that is a different story.
I like to travel quite a bit. For me there is nothing like the freedom which travelling is able to provide to a person; to see the wider world that’s beyond your own nation’s boundaries is the ultimate expression of human freedom. It’s a basic fundamental human right to be able to travel. Indeed, it’s something that humankind has done throughout the entirety of its own meager youthful existence on the planet. We’ve migrated to every continent on the planet so what’s to stop me from working at a shop printing in Brisbane even if I’m from the United States – Kentucky, of all places. When I look back on my Facebook to see how few of my friends from high school have chosen to travel themselves I’m always blown away. Some of them haven’t even left the tiny town that the majority of us grew up in and fewer still have actually left the state itself. Read more… »
NASCAR issued a statement about the controversial new Religious Freedom Law in Indiana – home of the Brickyard 400 at IMS.
“NASCAR is disappointed by the recent legislation passed in Indiana. We will not embrace nor participate in exclusion or intolerance. We are committed to diversity and inclusion within our sport and therefore will continue to welcome all competitors and fans at our events in the state of Indiana and anywhere else we race.”
NASCAR has not been silent on similar issues in the past. In 2014, before a race in Phoenix, Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed a similar law that passed in Arizona. At that time NASCAR said, ““We are pleased with Arizona Governor Jan Brewer’s veto of SB1062. NASCAR actively strives to promote diversity and inclusion throughout the motorsports industry. NASCAR has a zero tolerance policy against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, race, gender, national origin, age, color, disability, religion, or other factors which deny the essential humanity of all people.”
In 2013 when driver Nelson Piquet Jr posted a homophobic slur on social media, the sanctioning body fined the driver and released a statement saying , “Nelson Piquet Jr. recently communicated an offensive and derogatory term that cannot be tolerated in our sport. NASCAR’s Code of Conduct explicitly spells out in the 2013 rule book our position regarding the use of disparaging terms. We expect our entire industry to abide by this Code.”
8 men enter. Only 4 leave. Sounds like a fun night!
Kevin Harvick had one job to do….and he did it, happily winning the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500 at Phoenix International Raceway. The driver of the #4 Budweiser did it commanding fashion, leading 264 of 312 laps.
The win locks Harvick into the Final Four Spots that will decide the Championship next week in North Cuba. No other driver had anything for the #4 as Harvick lept to a commanding lead on every restart – despite a record 12 cautions giving others ample opportunities.
The other three spot locks were more fluid than a baby’s diaper as the race wore on in front of a sold out crowd in the desert.
Locking in are Denny Hamlin, Joey Logano and Ryan Newman. Knocked out contention were Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards, Brad Keselowski and Matt Kenseth.
The 4th spot was yanked out of Jeff Gordon’s hand on the last lap when Ryan Newman “moved” Kyle Larson in Turn 4 – sealing his chance to compete for the Sprint Cup.
Gordon squared off “West Side Story Style” with Brad Keselowski last week in Texas after Bad-Brad made a move to try and steal the victory. When asked about Newman making a similar move today to knock him out of contention, Gordon said, “it made last week even tougher to swallow,” adding, “if (that move) is acceptable then, it is acceptable now.”
Newman made it into the final four by the skin of his neck. For his part, on bumping Larson, Newman said, “I did what I had to do, I don’t like racing like that. I didn’t take him out. He still finished the race. In a day or two, he’ll understand.”
Never give up! It is a lesson we were all taught as a kid but a lesson that Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano really took to heart today.
On lap 32 Hamlin got a flat tire during a pit stop when the valve stem was knocked off by the air gun. The odd incident caused Denny to pit a second time and lose a lap. Many wrote off the #11 team but they fought back for a 5th place finish.
Logano’s day seemed to run downhill several times. On lap 124, during a pit stop the #22 team was penalized for removing equipment from the pit box. Starting in the back of the field, it didn’t take long for the lightning quick Harvick to put Logano a lap down. On lap 212 when Kyle Busch and Clint Bowyer made contact, Joey went low to avoid the #18 and in the process contacted Danica Patrick.
The contract resulted in a tire rub on the #22. After the race Logano said, “We (Danica) hit pretty hard but it didn’t knock the toe out. When NASCAR threw the red flag we had time to talk about the damage on the radio and for me to calm down.” The #22 quickly pulled the fender out and kept Logano in contention. JoLo fought to the end and finished P6, sealing his place in the final four on points. His teammate, Brad Keselowski, didn’t fair so well at PIR.
Former Cup Champion Keselowski, who had the most wins of any driver this season needed to win again at PIR to grab one of those final four spots. He finished fourth – but that was three spots short. The #2 had several shots at Harvick on multiple restarts but Miller Light had nothing for Budweiser today.
“We were just a little bit short,” said Keselowski. “Kevin was really, really strong all day long. We just weren’t strong enough to win. We were strong enough to run second or third, and ended up fourth. A lot to be proud of, just not enough.”
Now, a short message to all of the Chase Haters filling my timeline at the moment. STFU!
Yeah, I get it. If you’re a Keselowski or Gordon fan you are mad that your guy won’t have a shot for another title. But if you’re a Hamlin or Newman fan you love this new format. This new format has delivered that every week and I expect it to deliver next week in Florida. So sit back and enjoy the show!
