A Time for Metallic Sales

My family and I work together. We own our own business. We work in the junk industry. We collect scrap metal and antiques to sell, buy, and trade for profit. My father is the founder and CEO of the company. He started it in 1980. My mother is the co-founder of the business. She also is our accountant. My brother and I are coordinators and co-owners. We handle the outside daily deals. Metal is very precious. The price of copper per pound has been increasing for the past couple of years. I wanted to increase our profit. I thought I met a person that could do that.

One day, a man arrived at our business. He introduced himself. He told us that his name was Otto and he wanted to do business with us. My brother and I were eager to hear more about his deal. My father had a poker face the whole time. Otto told us that he had some extra copper that he wanted to sell. (more…)

Looking Good for the High School Rite of Passage

Our daughter is going to high school this year. That first year in the new school is tough. The first day impression is like a tryout for a social class you will be put in for the next four years. Elementary school faux pas can be forgotten, and the first day of high school sets your new social path. This is why I wanted her to be able to make that entrance that would look like those slow-motion movie scenes where the girl is transformed into a princess.

Now I’m a mom that got curly clip in hair extensions for here teenage daughter because the women in my family, including myself, just do not have extraordinarily beautiful hair. We need a little helper. However, when you are doing curly clip in hair extensions on a teenager, it is not like it would be on me or my mom. A mistake in their placement or possibly seeing one of the clips would be overlooked by our friends. Not so with young girls. They can be brutal.The girls will wear extensions, but they do not readily admit it. You have to keep your peers guessing. Sad but true.

High school can be brutal. I know I have talked about how it would be nice to go back in time in conversations with my husband, but we both agree that we would skip the high school drama. The problem is that going through it the first time seems like it is a necessary rite of passage. I feel sorry for the kids going through it today. There is not a whole lot of compassion nowadays. Everything is about fashion from the clothes on your back to the electronics you carry and the shoes on your feet. I’m just glad we have one kid. We could not afford to outfit two of them for high school!


Meal Replacement Shakes Helped Me Lose Weight

I have heard of meal replacement shakes, but I never really considered them for myself before for a few different reasons. The main one was I did not think that I would be satisfied with just a shake for a meal. I also did not think that I would be able to afford to maintain a program like that on a daily basis. When my doctor told me a few months ago that I needed to lose weight, I looked into my options and realized that the Idealshape shakes are actually a really good option for someone like me.

I did a lot of research on them because I was filled with so many doubts. I did not want to try something unless I felt sure that it could possibly help me. I went to an independent website because I wanted an unbiased opinion of this shake product. (more…)

Choose Your Power in Texas

Unlike most states that I know of, Texas is different in that there is not regulation over energy companies. For the consumer, that means that you can pick from a variety of different energy companies to get your electricity. I think that is pretty cool and it has to have some positive impact on the customers, in terms of pricing and such. I am checking out Choose Your Power to learn a bit more about the different power companies present in Texas. I am going to be moving to Texas pretty soon myself, and so I am trying to learn as much as I can about what it is going to be like to live there. It is exciting, but at the same time, it is kind of daunting to move to somewhere totally new.

I am kind of annoyed at the moment, because it is kind of hard to concentrate on the research I am doing with my kid playing their tablet in the same room as me. I wish I had some headphones for them to wear while playing it, but they broke the last set of headphones that they had, and I did not buy them another pair yet. I guess I will just have to deal with this noise for now.

Anyway, I am trying to get back on my train of thought. Kind of hard after my moment of annoyance, but I am going to have to do it. Oh, that is right. I was going to go ahead and look at prices for different companies on their electricity and try to find out any other information that might help me to make my decision. I finally found the house that I am going to buy a couple of days ago and I am pretty glad that whole process is over with.



Today, part of General Motors, Opel is a German manufacturer of motor vehicles with a long tradition, which was founded in 1863 by Adam Opel.
