When my sister moved to Michigan with her three kids, I knew that she was going to finally be happy. She had left her husband after years of neglect, and he didn’t even seem to mind that she was taking their kids hundreds of miles away. I was just happy for her, and I wanted to help her as much as I could because I knew that she didn’t have much. The first thing I did was check out the satellite Internet availability in Michigan. She moved to a very rural area, and I knew that cable Internet would not be an option.
She told me she would be okay without Internet, but I was also hoping to get her a position in the same company that I work for. I am able to work from home full time, and it just makes life so much easier for me. I knew that it would make it a whole lot better for her too, especially since her youngest son is not even in kindergarten yet. Read the rest of this entry »
My sister recently had twins, and she lives alone. She asked me if I would be interested in moving to her city to live with her so that I could help her out, and she would pay me to look after the babies while she works. However, she had been renting the home she is now living in for two years, and in that short time she has told me about many different break-ins and other close calls in the neighborhood. I stated I would move in if she would pay for a security system. I visited http://home-security.io/adt-security/florida/m/miami/ on the Internet and looked over it so that I could relay the information I found on it to her.
My sister was at first worried about the cost of any type of security equipment since she now has new babies. Read the rest of this entry »
I had been living in my house for nearly 10 years before I even thought about getting a security system. Even though I live in Houston, crime is relatively low in the area that I live in. However, it seems that times are changing, and I knew that it was inevitable. Given the chance of having a security system and being protected or clinging to a past that is long gone, it just made sense to start my search for a reliable and inexpensive company. That is how I found Houston ADT Security, after an extensive online search.
I was really happy with everything that I read about this company. First off, the price was very attractive to me. While I am not hurting for anything, I am still on a fixed income. I have what I do because I am careful with my purchases and do not do anything extravagant. This security system definitely is not that. While it is top of the line, the equipment is not expensive nor is the monitoring service for it. Read the rest of this entry »
I have a nice little place about a mile and three quarters from the campus. It is a tiny house that sits across the street from a Baptist Church and they have a basketball court around back behind the church’s fellowship hall. I heard some guys up there one night and I figured out that they played up there pretty regularly. It is pretty nice court and they play pretty hard. I was going to order Centurylink, but it turns out that the preacher at this church is a pretty nice guy and they have a wireless internet. Read the rest of this entry »
At least it is the place I am going to buy if things work out the way that I am expecting that it should. The place is well within my means, in fact I could probably buy a car that costs this much on top of the house. It is not in the greatest location, but that is not important to me. The only thing I cared about that was whether or not you could get broadband internet there. You can, from Frontier Internet. In fact they offer FiOS tv packages as well in this part of the world. I was planning on getting a satellite package at first, because I figured that would be the only real option, but I will get a choice and I guess I shall ask the locals if the FIOS works very well.

Started working on my personal blog this morning. I have been doing some really mediocre work at reviewing the internet providers available in this area. In fact I was thinking that maybe I could talk the ISP’s in the area in to giving me free internet so that I could review it personally. Obviously it is impractical for me to buy them all and use it for a long enough period of time to really give a good review. So I state before the fact which ones I have actually used and then I report on the experience that others have had. It is a good thing to get traffic and interaction from, because you have a big interest in the topic. This is not like it is something that you can live without in the modern era and you have to talk about the different types of the services now. Read the rest of this entry »
At home there is nothing like high speed Internet for keeping the family electronics fueled with content. Did you know that even if you get satellite TV, the service will still use your Internet connection to download some content? Kind of funny how they bash on cable when cable Internet is the fastest. You can get up to 150 kbps download speeds with some connections. That is faster than the residential fiber optic Internet services that are offered. Comparably, with dial-up Internet, it is like a race car against one of those coaster racers many of us built as kids.
Just about everything connects to the Internet nowadays. All of it is using bandwidth. Even some appliances now connect to the Internet. There are cars that use an Internet connection to report fault codes and regular maintenance reminders and probably the record keeping of them being done. Read the rest of this entry »
In my previous career, I worked as a page designer, creating graphics and logos for print publications. It was a wonderful experience, and a time of great creativity. Though I finished an MBA program and moved on to another career, I will never forget the lessons I learned as a graphic designer.
When it comes to great looking logos, it is good to remember that less is more. Cluttered logos are usually not effective in conveying any kind of message. When one thinks of great logos, the Nike swoosh or the Apple icon immediately comes to mind. This is because these are simple, clean logos that are extremely versatile. These iconic logos are the standard that designers should strive for.
Secondly, a good designer should not be afraid to use color. Read the rest of this entry »
A new business or one just taking off has an owner, founder or other principle who has been around from the beginning. This person knows all the little details of what makes the business work. He or she is the one who gets the job done when others think it cannot be done or are too slow getting work done. This person is convinced that there is no one else who knows this business better. However, when it comes to logos, it is not often that a winning design is made by those intimately involved with the business.
Logos are creative designs. Not every business owner or founder is artistically creative. What he or she thinks looks like a fantastic idea for a logo, just might be something that brings ridicule and lost revenue to a business. Famous logos that stick in the minds of consumers are simple yet real perfection in graphic design. Logos are not supposed to be intricate or take a long time to read. A good logo should be instantly recognizable from a distance. Sure, it takes some time for the logo of a business to get associated with the company in the minds of consumers. However, once it is established, it should be permanent.
Logos should be like jingles. Read the rest of this entry »
