Opening Up New Worlds Through Apps

I had an idea for a music app, but I never thought that it would go anywhere. It was original music, so it was not because of copyright laws or anything like that. I just did not know how I would be able to get something like that started on my own. I thought that it would cost too much to go to a company that specializes in creating apps. At the urging of a good friend, I finally did a search for app development in Singapore. I mainly did it just so I could tell him that I was right all along.

Instead, I ended up thanking him, because that changed my life. I went to the website for an app developer, and it did not take long before I realized that this actually was something that I would be able to get made. I had the idea for it, and they had the talent and skills to put it together in a handy little app that is now available all around the world. I am not making much money off it at all, but that was not why I wanted to do this in the first place.

I wanted to open up a new world for others who love music the same way I do. With this app, music lovers are able to create their own music and songs, and then they can share them with others who also have the app. It really is very simple, and I have received so many ideas and suggestions for an upgraded version. I am currently working with the app developer to make this a reality. I am also working on a second app idea that is almost ready to be put in the designer’s hands. It is exciting to play a role like this in opening up a new world for so many others.

My Boss Recommended His HVAC People

My air conditioner stopped working properly last week. I already knew a few things to check, which I did. I looked at the filter, but it was still fairly clean since I had just changed it a few weeks prior to it conking out on me. I also looked at the condenser outside to make sure nothing had happened there, that I could see anyway. There were no weeds or rocks real close, and I couldn’t see any damage. I knew that I needed a professional who does HVAC in NYC since I didn’t know what else to look for.

I had never had to hire someone to help me with my air conditioner before, and I honestly didn’t know who to turn to. Rather than go online and pick a company that I knew nothing about, I called my boss at work. I knew that if he didn’t know a company, he would be able to find out the best one in the area faster than I could. It turns out that he not only could recommend the right company, but he had their contact info for me too.

I contacted them and told them why I was calling. They were so nice right from the start. I know that sounds logical since they are in the public sector, but you’d be surprised how many workers are not nice to the people they talk with on the phone. Anyway, they were able to send someone out. It ended up being a belt that needed replaced, which was something I would have never figured out on my own. It took the tech just a few minutes of poking around, and he even had the right belt on him. I was very impressed with this company all the way around, and I am glad my boss recommended them to me.

Getting Rid of Those Rats with Wings

Each year homeowners spend hundreds of dollar cleaning up after and repairing damage caused by pest birds. Pigeons love to roost on the edges of your roof looking for dinner or just enjoying the sun. They can cause a lot of damage to the roof as well as endanger you and your outdoor pet’s health. Speak with a specialist in Roof repair in Manhattan NY to help you install these spikes first! Pigeons can carry any of 60 transmittable diseases, including West Nile Virus and Hystoplasmosis. The debris left behind by the pigeons can contain fleas, mites and ticks. It is essential for homeowners to get rid of pigeons as soon as they see them arrive.One of the best ways to keep pigeons off your roof is to install bird spikes on the peaks and edges. Most pigeons will land on the peak or edge of a roof first to look around and make sure that they are safe, they will then walk around the roof looking for a good roosting or nesting spot.

Bird spikes make it impossible for the pigeons to land on the areas that the spikes are covering. If they cannot land on your roof they will most likely move on to a more hospitable spot.Bird Spikes come in several types. There are all plastic spike strips as well as plastic with stainless steel spikes. Most bird spikes come in two-foot sections and are easily installed using either adhesive or screws. When installing bird spikes on your roof, you will most likely want to use adhesive, as nails or screws will put holes in the roofing material.

Plastic bird spikes will usually come in a variety of colors to match your roof. If you have a tile roof, you can get the terra cotta colored spikes. Plastic bird spikes tend to be less expensive that the stainless steel model. They are made of a polycarbonate plastic similar to that of the headlights of a car, thus they are very rigid and will last quite a while on the roof.

A 1950s Themed Business Party

When the company I work for decided to have a party celebrating 65 years in business, I suggested that we make it a 1950s themed event since that is when the company first started. Everyone really liked that idea, including the owners, who weren’t even born yet when their parents started the business. They suggested that we do everything 50s style, including our attire. That really got me excited, because I have often admired the way the women in the 1950s dressed. I decided that I wanted to look at swing jurken in particular, because I had just seen a Marilyn Monroe film where she was wearing a dress like that, and it was simply gorgeous.

I looked online, knowing that none of the shops in the area would sell anything like what I wanted. It did not take me long to find exactly what I was looking for. When I saw a red swing dress with white polka dots on it, I knew that it was the one that I wanted. It was simply perfect, with its scoop neck, the cover collar, the short sleeves, and the bandana that was displayed in the picture too.

I was able to get the dress, the bandana and a nice pair of red pumps to match the dress for the same price that I would have spent on a simple dress for the event, had we went with a more modern dress. I was excited though because I knew that I would be wearing this dress more than once. It is just too pretty to wear just to the dinner celebration and then stick in the back of the closet. I also discovered that I have a liking to that style, and I purchased a few other outfits on the same shopping trip.
