My husband and I could not agree on a house to buy when he was transferred to Shawnee, so we agreed that we would just look at Shawnee apartments for rent for the time being. We both wanted to make sure that the house we bought was one that we all liked, including our son and daughter. They are young right now, but in a few years, they will be teens. Because of that, we wanted to make sure they would be in a great school district as well. There was a lot to consider, so we just looked at apartments to live in for at least the next year.
My husband and I bought a house in Bellevue not long ago. We knew that we were gong to have to do some work on it ourselves, but we did not mind. We were able to buy it at a really great price because of all the renovations that needed done, and it turned out that a major one was not so major after all. We thought that the roof was in really bad shape, mostly because of the amount of moss on it. We hired a company that does moss removal in Bellevue to come take a look at it, expecting the worst news.
We thought we were going to be told that the moss had already eaten through parts of the roof, which would mean that we would have to replace the entire roof. We had figured that into the price when we were negotiating the sale price, and the previous owner also thought that the roof was going to need to be replaced. When the moss removal crew came out, they were not surprised to see the amount of moss on the roof. They just got right to work examining it first.
They were looking for signs of damage to the roof first. They did this because if there was enough damage to where the roof needed to be replaced, then it would not make sense for us to go ahead and have them remove the moss when the roof was just going to come off anyway. We got some great news though. While the moss was definitely heavy and spreading, it had not done any major damage to the roof yet. Instead of paying a roofing company to put on a new roof, we just paid them to remove all the moss and clean the existing roof. It was a whole lot cheaper this way!
About once a year I need to prove income for something. It is annoying in that I get a paycheck written by my dad. He has those small personal style checks and writes my withholding on a piece of paper. It is 100 percent accurate, but people that want me to prove my income do not want to accept it. They want a computer-generated pay stub. I found a way around it by using a pay stub maker online. I just find out how many pay stubs that the place wants to see from me, and then I put in the info my dad writes on the pieces of paper. The only difference is that now they are printed out instead of being handwritten.
It is a weird world we live in. People think that something printed on a computer is more authentic than something handwritten. Doesn't it make sense that if someone hand wrote it that it would likely be more official and original? Well, the world does not see things that way. I get receipts from businesses that are printed on plain printer paper. Sure, they have a logo and amounts, but there is no identifying barcode or transaction number. They are so easy to fake. I get one from my doctor every time I give them a copay.
Receipts you get from stores have identifying codes on them that can pinpoint your transaction in the system and show exactly what you bought and paid. Things such as pay stubs could have any kind of information printed on them. I put in exactly what my handwritten stub says, so there is no defrauding or anything like that. It just has me wondering why something printed by a printer is considered to be so much more official than something handwritten and signed. I guess that is how we are trained to think nowadays.
We spent a lot of time cleaning up this building and the piece of land it was on. In fact for some reason people seemed to have been dumping scrap metal on the lot and it was actually worth our time to haul it down to the junk yard on my trailer. We got the building cleaning up and then we put in the overhead trolleys for the chain hoists and the I hired a sheet metal punching service to help us with the ducts for the exhaust system and the safety guards for the machines. We finished that up this afternoon and now we have to put in the tanks for the dipping operations. We got those used and had new liners put in them, so they did not cost us half of what we thought that they were going to cost.
We already have John White come by to see how we are doing, he is going to provide us with enough business to keep the doors open and he is in a hurry to see us get started. Right now he is going to this guy who he can not stand, because the guy has a real problem with the truth. In fact he seems to lie impulsively even when it does not make any sense to do so. It has to be some sort of psychological thing, because simple logic dictates that you have to tell the truth at least some of the time, especially when you are dealing with one of your most important customers. He just says stuff and then it becomes obvious that it was not true in a big hurry. John White can not stand that, for one thing this sort of thing is just a great big waste of his time.Discover A Lot More
