We designed this house so that it is pretty nearly free of the grid. txu energy in laredo, tx has a power line that runs out there, but in fact we are generating pretty much what we need from three moderate sized wind turbine on the property and a bit of solar as well. The big thing is that the house is pretty much energy neutral so far as heating and cooling is concerned. Of course keeping it warm is hardly that big of a deal here, the climate can be brutally hot out here and the big thing is obviously keeping it cool. However we do not even need an air conditioning unit. Read the rest of this entry »
Just a few months ago my neighbor got robbed. A teenager broke into their house and stole many things of value like; a gaming system, a lab top, jewelry and a couple hundred dollars. A week later they caught the teenager but the gaming system and jewelry had already been sold, the lab top was broken and the money was spent. This got me worried about this sort of thing happening to me so I started looking at home security systems and found a good one: virginia adt. This seems to be the most secure system around. About a month and a half after my neighbors robbery I got my security system set up and I am very lucky I did because only two days after it was installed someone tried to steal from my home. It was about three in the morning and I heard a crash by my back door, I snuck down the stairs and saw a women with a metal bat in my living room. Read the rest of this entry »
It was time for me to select a new Internet service provider and I could not have been happier. I had been in a long contract with my old service provider, but I didn’t feel like I had been getting a good value for my money. The speeds weren’t as fast as they promised, and my rates went up as soon as my contract expired. I knew I was ready for a change. I told my friend that I was looking for a new Internet service provider and she told me to go to highspeeddslservice.net/dsl-service/ and see what I could find there. She used that website back when she was looking to switch providers.
Since the website was so helpful to her, I thought that I would give it a try. Read the rest of this entry »
I was told by my friends in the car business that if I wanted to make sure that I had my inventory covered, that I was going to have make sure that I had some kind of sales insurance on the cars that I sell online. I had no idea that there were so many people that were going to go and try to take advantage of people online. We knew that there were quite a bit of people that were going to go and find my cars on motortradeinsurance.tripod.co.uk where I was going to be listing them. It was going to be really upsetting to me if I went to meet someone and they tried to rob me of my car. There were a few different people that tried to car jack others after they scheduled to meet them online from the ads that they posted on the internet.
I read an online guide that said that you should not give out any of your personal information while you were online. Read the rest of this entry »
In an increasingly uncertain world where crime is ever on the rise due the lack of jobs and lack of money for many American families and individuals, we are beginning to look toward securing ourselves better against those that would want to take advantage of our vulnerability. Some of us are doing well. Some of us are not. There are those out there that are desperate enough to want to take away from us because we are doing better – I can almost understand this. Despite that, I had kansas adt security installed in my home just the other day because of these concerns. Read the rest of this entry »
I need to get a new internet connection in the near future, because I am not very happy with the company that I am currently getting internet service from, and I would like to change providers as soon as possible. I need to get a new internet connection soon, because I do not like going without internet. It is incredibly inconvenient, to say the least, and I need get something set up soon. I found internetproviders.us/internet-providers/ and I really hope that it will be able to hook me up with an internet provider that will work well for me in the future.
I am not sure how much it is going to cost me in this area, because I just moved into town. I am hoping to try to get something better than what I had last, because that internet connection was not very good, and certainly was not fast enough for my standards. I need to get something better going forward, because I play a lot of video games on the internet. I do not like to experience any sort of lag on the internet, and that is especially true when it comes to playing video games.
My son has been especially restless about not having an internet connection, so it would be best if I could find something soon. I am going to need to set a limit as to the amount of money I can afford to spend on Internet. I am thinking that I should not spend more than 75 bucks per month on Internet. I hope that I can find a good deal on internet that will cost me less than that, but I am not really sure. Regardless, I need to get the situation figured out soon, so that I can have it installed in my house.
I have moved from Virginia to Tennessee, but it is not like I have gone all that far. I was living in my Mom’s extra room temporarily in Bristol, VA. Now I have moved about five or so miles to the South and I am in the outskirts of Bristol, TN. The place is not too bad, but it is not a palace. My uncle was telling me about it and mentioned that it was about 500 or 600 yards from where I am working right now. All I need is to get some bristol tennessee dsl for a really good price and I will be about set actually. Read the rest of this entry »
