Keeping Tally of What the President’s Political Record Will Be for the Next Four Years

I promised myself that the next time a president is elected for a first term in office that I would keep a record of all the good and bad attributed to his or her administration. Well, I was not expecting our new president to be Donald J. Trump, but that is okay. My tracking was going to be whether I voted for the person or not. This article is not about my vote, as I just mentioned I was surprised he won, not whether I voted for him or not. A great resource for me is President Trump news at a website that is all about news reports on his administration. I am not talking about the fluff stuff. I mean real reporting about actual decisions he is making, and the things he is saying.

I separate the reports into favorable and unfavorable. I even have a section for extremes of decision making for the better or worse that is based on my my own criteria that comes from my own political ideology. I admit that my leanings are very independent even though I am registered to vote with one of the two major parties. (more…)

Getting the Best Energy Plan for Myself

I wanted to learn more about energy providers here in Texas. It was the first time I was actually allowed to make a decision based on which one I wanted rather than someone telling me what I had to take. If there is one thing that I really like, it is the freedom of choice. Even when it is something like the company that provides the electricity to my house, I want to take full advantage of my opportunity to choose. While I was really looking forward to this, I also knew that I did not have a lot of time, because I wanted to have the power on by the time I moved in. (more…)

I Love Being Able to Choose My Energy Company

Living in the Lone Star State sure has its benefits. I’ve lived all over the state including Plano, Laredo, Houston, and Dallas. The one thing that’s been consistent in all of those places is the freedom I’ve had to choose my own energy plan. Living in a state where energy is deregulated sure is a nice benefit. When I first had to sign up for electricity service, I went to http://texaselectricityrates.org/stream-energy-tx/ for details about the services offered and the rates I could expect to pay. I had two options. I could either call them for more information, or I could fill out a brief form. I decided to give them a call.

The representative I spoke with was very friendly. She asked me for my name, phone number, and ZIP Code, and then proceeded to tell me all about my options. (more…)

I wanted a way to make better looking paystubs for my employees. I only have two, but they need official paystubs to do things like get a loan or prove employment.

It works for my needs. I just needed a way to add payroll to it. Specifically, I needed a way to make professional paystubs for my employees. I put in the numbers, and the thing makes paystubs I can print out on my printer using regular paper.

Anxiety Can Be a Big Problem

A good friend of mine told me not long ago that she was having problems with anxiety. I have naturally experience anxiety myself, as I think it is a common enough thing for anyone to go through. I did not have any experience with it on a daily basis though, and I wanted to learn more about it so I would be able to help her out too. I did a search and one of the websites was available to find it here in more detail. When I went there, I was able to learn all kinds of things about anxiety that I just was not aware of before this.

For a person who has normal anxiety over an upcoming academic test or waiting to hear back from a doctor after a medical test, or even waiting to see if the cute guy you dated for the first time last week calls for a second date, it is a different kind of anxiety than what someone who experiences it constantly feels.

I Needed to Learn How to Get My Business in Front of Customers

My business was having trouble for awhile. I was working hard every day, but could not seem to get to a steady place with customer purchases. But I soon found out that working hard only went so far. I needed to learn new ways to keep customers engaged. Learning all that I could about social media was important. Just a couple of months ago, I decided to buy active Instagram followers to see how that would work, and it was a success.

I have never been someone who has been all that interested in social media in general for personal use. I am too busy running my company to have time to record my personal life online. I sometimes take a moment to check in to see how family and friends are doing on their accounts, though. And many people are nice enough to email me if they want me to take a look at photos or other info they post online about something good in their lives. Outside of that, I need to concentrate on what keeps the bills paid.

So, when I learned that it is important to reach out to customers, I was a bit unsure of that at first. But I’ve come around to understanding why that is important these days. When so many people are using sites like Instagram these days, you must do what you can to connect with them. You must post interesting things to keep your business in front of them. It used to be that placing an add in the newspaper or phone book was enough, but that has changed in the past 5-10 years. However, to help save myself some time, I get the help of a company that does a good job of clicking “like” on my photos so that it helps to make my followers more interested in what I post.

With summer bookings so essential, the imaginable finish of the emergency in right on time July couldn’t have been timed more awful.

For all that, be that as it may, contending nations would do well not to be excessively bullish. The quick financial effect of dropping out of the euro zone would doubtlessly be more wretchedness. In any case, an arrival to the drachma, which will without a doubt be downgraded, will make Greece less expensive than its rivals in the medium term. Hoteliers and restaurateurs may want to be exchanging the single cash in any case, accepting they can hang on for a couple of years, the option may not as calamitous as they apprehens
