Getting effective NRL betting tips is something I just need in my life. I am an American by birth and have lived in the United States for almost all of my life, but I lived overseas for several years when I was a kid thanks to my father being in the military. What that means is that I developed a lifelong obsession with the sport of rugby. I played it when I lived overseas and was actually pretty good at the sport. I don't play it now, but I follow it like some people follow the NFL or the NBA here.

Trying to bet on rugby here while being informed about the various teams is somewhat difficult. No one here in the United States really cares about the sport and most of the online betting places don't give it a lot of space or time. And finding actual tips that can increase your ability to win bets on various teams? Forget about it. ...continue reading

I like seeing old structures being renovated into really nice residential living structures. I have toured commercial and industrial buildings that have been converted into living spaces. Not just modified, but really made into quite comfortable modern living spaces. You can see examples of this in Lower Junction in Ontario, Canada. There are older buildings there that have been completely renovated to update them for modern living today including modern technology. The buildings keep some of their architectural features that have made them iconic structures, but the apartments are all new and filled with every amenity new tenants want.

I enjoy loft spaces with high ceilings and really big windows. ...continue reading

When my mom told me she was getting married, I was so happy for her. She had never been married before, and it took her years to find the man she wanted to spend the rest of her life with. She thought she would be okay with it just being the two of us after she adopted me 15 years ago when I was just a young teen, so I was ecstatic that she and her boyfriend were going to marry. I thought about the dinner menu for the reception, the wedding flowers for Melbourne, the dresses we would wear, and I knew that we were going to have a great time planning her happily ever after.

She told me the two of them just wanted a simple affair, which didn't surprise me. I was still planning on nice flowers though, and I decided that would be my gift to them. ...continue reading

I admit that I can be a bit of a clothes snob. I don't mean that in a bad way at all though. I like to dress up and look as nice as possible, but I don't want to be wearing the same dress or outfit that other women at the same place may be wearing too. That may be hard for most guys to understand, but it is the unwritten code for women, so we at least understand each other. That is why I like to look at one of a kind dresses when I need one for a fancy event.

I don't mind shopping local if I need jeans or a tee shirt, but I want to shop where I have a better chance at finding a dress that no one else will have at whatever event I am going to. ...continue reading

It's amazing how far technology has come since the birth of the first computer. My company was making a building and we used computer software to generate a model of the building before construction even began. We needed to test the building for different kinds of environmental factors, like wind, rain, and earthquakes. These things can really take a building down if the building isn't made to handle it structurally. To do the tests, we did a Sap2000 download because the program could make those factors and test them against the 3D model.

The tests showed my company that we had to make some changes to the designs to withstand the factors. The building need a bit more wind resistance, and the foundation needed to be enhanced for ground shakes. ...continue reading

I love to learn. When I was a kid, the ability to connect easily to the internet was not something found in every household like it is today. I used to read encyclopedia articles at random, but being able to look up facts online is so much easier and a lot more interesting too, because I am not restricted to just what is on a book page. So, did you ever wonder anything random at all? How tall is Mount Everest? I wonder if that thought has recently crossed anyone else's mind like it did mine not long ago.

I had been watching the news when a news story came on about a climber on Everest. ...continue reading

I remember getting started in business years ago where I would buy mailing lists to get leads to sell my products. I got into the mail order business before anyone ever heard of the Internet. I put together a catalog of the unique niche products that I sold. Then I would buy printed mailing lists and actually hand write envelopes to mail out catalogs. Now my business is all conducted from a website, and I use a company that provides lead generation in Brisbane to get more customers.

I have a certain percentage of customers that discover my business by using a search engine. I get some business from ads on social media and other websites too. I also get a lot of word-of-mouth advertising. The lead generation in Brisbane helps me to perpetually grow my customer base in these competitive times. The products I sell are niche products. Years ago I was the only one you could find that had such a collection of niche products all in one catalog. Now you can find anything by doing a search online. ...continue reading

My parents were both very poor. They wanted me to have a better life than what they have, but it actually was not as shabby as they thought it was. They made sure I had all kinds of opportunities, but all I wanted to do was write. They supported me whole heartedly with that, and I am a published author of 16 best selling novels now. That is how I was able to start looking at luxury real estate in Colorado not long ago. I wanted to find a nice home for my family and myself, and I also wanted my parents to be there with us.

I knew that I would not be where I am today without their love and support, and my success belongs to them as well. ...continue reading

When I had to hack Instagram for a friend, I marveled at how many people still don't take their security seriously. How many stories have we all read or heard about over the years about so and so getting hacked? About some big company getting hacked? Or even more hilariously, some big tech company getting hacked? It's always someone who steals reams of personal information like passwords, emails, and other associated material that causes lots of problems for everyone involved. How hard is to come up with decent security systems? What chance do any of us have if the big guys have problem?

Actually, I used a tool I found online to crack my friend's girlfriend's Instagram account because she hid some of it and he wanted to know what she was doing. He thought she was cheating on him again. She wasn't, but I was able to get into her account easily enough because her password was so basic that it was laughable. ...continue reading

My two daughters love watching Sailor Moon. It is not a show that I know much about, but I know that the two of them as well as their friends like everything about it. I decided to go online to see if I could find a Pink Sailor Moon shirt that I thought they would like. They never ask for anything, and I thought that it would be a nice and unexpected surprise for the two of them. It did not take me long to find the shop that I wanted to use after doing a very basic search for the type of shirts that I wanted.

I was able to find a really cool shirt that I thought they would like, and the best part is that there were different ones so I did not have to get them the same one. They had a blue one as well as a pink one in the one that I wanted, but that was just the beginning. This site had so many different Sailor Moon items, and I knew that I would end up getting them both a few different items. ...continue reading
