We have finally got the house, after a long trial of endurance with the seller. He was convinced that he could talk us into paying his asking price. We loved the location of the house, but it needs a lot of work and we simply could not swing what he wanted us to pay for this place. Of course after we pay the down payment we have to have money left over for the other things that we need. For the house we have home owner’s insurance, the monthly bills for ADT security, cable television and the internet along with the cost of maintaining the house and eventually fixing all of the little things and big things that it needs to have done to it. Of course we can live without cable TV for as long as we need to and that is the plan right now. Continue reading Working out What We Can Afford on the Budget
This website helped me when I was about to give up on finding a good deal on cable television www.cable-tv.com/comcast/kansas/wichita/. Who knew how expensive cable television could be. When we moved from one job to another we decided to look up the prices of cable television. My job was relocating me to Kansas and I thought maybe I might get better reception with cable TV over satellite TV.
The last three years I had satellite television and normally it worked out okay, that is until it would rain, and then I would lose all reception. I would be in the middle of my favorite show or movie and a small rain storm would come around and in fact it didn’t even have to be where I lived. As long as the rain was nearby I would lose the picture. Plus another thing that always bothered me was you could only record two shows and one time and one of those shows you had to be watching. I had heard cable television was far more advanced in the DVR’s and I could record up to four shows and watch a fifth one. Continue reading Just when I Was About to Give Up
I do not know if you have ever fished around Smith Mountain Lake, but there is another lake below it called Leesville Lake. The land around it is not as valuable as the land around the big lake, because they let the level go up and down a lot more. So people can not really build a place on the lake and have the lake stay in the same relative position to it. I did find this bit of farm land there. It has a trailer on it now and the trailer has satellite tv. Of course I am not interested in the trailer as a permanent thing, but as a place to use as a base for fishing expeditions it is quite good.

The organic movement was born out of the discontent that farmers experienced in the early 1900’s toward the industrialization of agriculture and what they saw as a disruption to their way of life. Many farmers found themselves refusing to switch over to synthetic nitrogen fertilizers and pesticides, instead opting to continue to encourage a rich biodiversity on their land. Even more refused to swap from their system of growing many crops to a simpler, new method; monoculture farming. It’s because of these farmers and their supporters that we’re able to purchase organic produce from this organic shop in Singapore. Farmers all around the world have pushed back against this ‘new’ system.
An issue does arise for the consumer when they’re shopping for ‘organic’ produce or products. In the United States, European Union, Mexico and Canada, the consumers are able to find how the term organic is defined within an agricultural context.

When searching for information about the different hip hop groups across the world, I came across a website that has information about some of the upcoming underground hip hop artists.

I spent some time listening and learning a bit about these artists. I found people of all ages that have some really great talent just waiting to be discovered by a recording studio. I had to show my sister what I had found. I sent a link to the site to her so she could check it out. Continue reading Hip Hop Artists That Are Underground
