Our House Now Feels Safer Than It Ever Has

Around 15 years ago, I ran into a salesman who was going door-to-door in my neighborhood to let all of us know about a sales promotion on their alarms. It was a great promotion, so my husband and I had them install an alarm system in our home. We loved it. Just recently, I learned that they now have something called ADT Pulse that allows you to control your alarm from your own cell phone. So, we called the same company this week to get it, and we both love it.

There have been a number of times when I arrived at work in the past and realized that I forgot to turn the alarm on before leaving the house. My husband has done the same thing. (more…)

I Am Never Going to Move Again

When my friend moved into her new apartment, she told me that the apartment itself along with all the amenities were not the only nice things about living there. It is run by the property management group Bridge Property Management, and she said that they treat the tenants with respect and are always quick to fix something should anything happen. That is a rarity in today’s times, at least in our experience between the last three complexes we have both lived in. That is why I wanted to find out more about the complex she was now living in.

I went online to get information on Regency at Lookout Canyon, and I was impressed from the very start of looking at their website. I looked at the amenities that are offered inside each apartment as well as the community amenities, and I also looked at the floor plans for each of the units. (more…)

I Store My Photos in a Cloud

I am blessed in that I don’t have to work because my husband has an excellent career. I don’t just waste my time away though. Photography is a major passion of mine, and I love to take pictures of people, animals, landscapes, events and just about anything else that one can imagine. I literally have hundreds of thousands of pictures that I have taken, and I use cloud computing to store the majority of them. While I love taking pictures, I also enjoy editing them into even better photographs.

While my computer would be able to hold all of the photographs if I would purchase additional hard drive space, I knew that it was not safe to store them this way. (more…)
