Nice Quiet Apartment Living in a Gated Community is What We Looked for

My wife and I like a nice quiet laid back kind of place to live. We do not need tons of excitement in our days to get buy. We get enough of that on the job. She works in emergency services as a dispatcher, and I am in law enforcement. Our dinner conversation would shock some people, but it is just routine stuff we see day in and day out. We found a nice place when we were looking for apartments in Alamo Heights San Antonio. I like hanging out with a couple of neighbors at the fire pit in the evenings when I am not on shift. My wife enjoys siting out on our balcony and reading her books.

We have a nice apartment with granite countertops that are really classy looking. The fireplace and hardwood floors really add a nice touch to our place as well. We are very comfortable here. It is home. It is not just a place to stay in between work shifts. We like our neighbors and all of the amenities the apartment complex has to offer. We have a nice fitness center. No more gym memberships for me. I just work out here at our apartment complex. Another thing I really appreciate is that there is controlled access here. It is a gated community. I like the extra layer of security. It gives me peace of mind, especially considering the line of work I am in.

I have liked it here from the first day. I have a place to run my buddy and partner on the job at the dog park. Most people think he is just a regular dog. He is not a Shepherd or Malinois breed. I tell my wife he is undercover as a LEO dog. Yes, we are happy here as a family of three. However, we do have the second bedroom to add another member of our family soon.

Clearing a Vacant Lot for My Boss

The boss and I went out to this place he had bought the other day. Of course he is not looking at it for himself, but he is going to clean the place up and then sell it for a profit. He does this all of the time, although of course it is me who takes care of the part which involves actual work. It is not usually all that pleasant, but some times I get a bonus. For example I often end up cleaning up the place and taking a side profit from scrap metal dealers. That is a matter of luck and you are not going to make that much picking up discarded aluminum cans. Those are going to be worth picking up, although the current prices are not that awesome for any of this stuff. What you want to do is to find a couple of old cars or other vehicles or some other huge heavy piece of junk.

Aluminum is worth a lot more per pound than scrap metal is. The difference is huge. However the average automobile is going to come close to two tons in weight. The big ones are heavier than that obviously, which is what you want obviously. In this case one of the cars is a forty year old Cadillac, the sort of car that people would call a land yacht. A normal car is going to be worth around four hundred dollars, give or take. That was the price the last time I did this, although I have heard that scrap metal prices are down a lot. Of course that does not matter so much to me. The boss has not really thought about this part of it and I have not told him, so I am going to be paid to remove the junk and then get paid for the junk.

It Was Easy to Make My Pay Stubs

When I called a local accountant to see what it would cost to get some help with my employee pay stubs, I was really shocked at the price. I knew that I was going to have to pay a decent amount since they are professionals, but I honestly was not expecting such a high price. I knew that I would pay it if I had to, but I am so glad that I was able to find a pay stub maker that did everything that I needed without the high price that I thought I was going to have to pay.

The really neat thing about the site that I found is that it was created by accountants. I guess they understand how it is for a small business owner. We don’t have the deep pockets that larger companies have, so corners have to be cut where they can be. These accounting professionals understand that, and they created a pay stub generator that creates perfectly legal pay stubs that have the taxes figured into it already. I really could not have found anything better than what I did, and I decided to make a mock pay stub just to see that it did what they claim.

It cost me less than what I pay for a fast food lunch, and it worked perfectly. I don’t know a whole lot about computer programs, which is why I didn’t trust myself to purchase software that would do this for me. I just wanted to type in the right numbers and have the pay stub ready for me. As soon as I was done with the information I had to put in, I submitted the information. By the time I opened up my email, the file was already there for me to print. I have been using it ever since!

Learning Fun and Interesting Facts Online

I am often star struck. It is not just toward one celebrity either. I love watching films and quite a few television shows, so it seems I am always finding someone new and interesting to learn about. I was able to find some entertaining information about some celebrities I really like on this website I found. It has interesting facts about all sorts of things, like countries, cities, history, foods, and my favorite subject, famous people. It is not just people who are famous because they are movie stars though. This site has information about people like Paul Revere, Picasso and Ronald Reagan too.

I do enjoy reading those too because I love history as well, but my favorite part is learning new things about people I watch on the big and little screens. For instance, there was a section there about interesting things to do with Beyonce. I love her music, and I think she rightfully deserves the most beautiful woman in the world moniker. I had no idea she was so filthy rich though. She makes over 200,000 on some days, which is hard to even wrap my head around, to be honest.

She is such a hard worker though, and she also is very charitable with the money that she does earn. It is hard to begrudge someone the money they have when they take care of so many different people with it too. I was also able to learn some neat things about one of my favorite actors, Leonardo DiCaprio. When I get bored, I will usually come to this site and learn something about a celebrity. Sometimes, I will look at some of the other facts there too. Yesterday, I learned interesting facts about anxiety, so there really is a lot to learn on this site, and it is fun learning too!
