I Have a Very Interesting Neighbor

23 May

Of course my old neighbors used to think that I was a drug dealer, because they never saw me go to work in the morning and it is not a cheap place for a man to live. In fact I work on my computer writing software. I got to know her when a tree fell across her driveway. Obviously I was a lot more willing to help her since she is about 24 years old and she looks like a swimsuit model. Eventually she told me about the girlfriend experience in Utah county, which was her specialty. I would have been afraid to have asked her what it would have cost, but she told me it was quite fine if I wanted to go on with the pursuit I was involved. The smile that she gave was delightful. She asked if this bothered me and said that there was no point in keeping it a secret. In fact I thought about it and figured that it was hardly my business. I was chasing her though and I wondered if she thought I had a chance, because I had not really liked my chances before.

At any rate I soon learned that she had a degree in mathematics and she was not terribly far away from getting a minor in computer science. This was obviously my opening, because she told me that she was sure that she could not go on doing what she doing when she was too old to pass for a girlfriend. At any rate I began to show her what I was working on and let her do some of the less difficult stuff just so that she could gain experience and I told her which courses she needed to take online in order to become a real programmer like me.

Getting a Security System Was Easy

23 May

I wanted to learn more about video surveillance. There had been a spike of home burglaries in the area, and I just wanted to find a way to protect myself as well as my family. I was not so much worried about possessions because they can be replaced, but I still did not want anyone entering my house and stealing stuff from me. I figured the best thing would be to have video surveillance, but I knew next to nothing about it. Whenever that happens to me, I just go online and get educated from reputable sites.

I looked at a lot of different options, including where I would install a system myself. I knew that I would be able to do it on my own, and the cost was not bad at all. What I did not like about it though is that I would not have anyone monitoring a system that I put in. Read the rest of this entry »

Cutting Down a Tree to Get a Better View and for Safety Reasons

16 May

We have a nice view in our back yard. Our kitchen window faces the back yard. We decided to put in a large bay window where we could have a table and seating to be able to look out while we have our breakfast. The sun comes up on that side of the house and looks great in the mornings. Before we could put in the new window, we called a Queens tree removal service to come out and take down a big oak tree that was just outside the window we were replacing. That old tree was huge and blocked the view from the window we were replacing.

After they cut down the big old oak, we kept a couple of slices of the main trunk to make tables. We had some smaller pieces we turned into clocks to have as keepsakes for the old tree that was in our back yard but blocked our kitchen window. It was kind of sad to see that big oak get cut down and the stump ground away, but the view we have from our new window is spectacular. I enjoy it every morning as I sit next to that window and have my coffee.

If the tree was not as big as it was, I would have asked about a price to move it. It was way to big to be moved. It had to be cut down. We landscaped the area where the big tree used to be. It looks nice with some smaller plants and flowers. We did not plant that tree there. It was planted by the previous owner of the house. For the type of tree that it was, it was planted too close to the house anyway. We probably should have cut it down years ago just for safety reasons.
