The Insanity of a Canadian Goose

This entry was posted in News on by .

Some animals, even when they’re wild, are able to be controlled easily. Some are frightful enough of human activity and humans themselves that they rather bolt away in fear rather than stick around long enough to find out exactly what a human might be up to. This is not the case with your average Canadian Goose! I’d never suspected that a Canadian Goose could be a violent animal until I started working in Canada Geese control in NJ in order to help a local retirement home to rid themselves of these apparently insane animals who have absolutely no fear of humans or even other animals. I watched one of these winged terrors launch itself bodily at a landscaper who was actually on his lawnmower. Unfortunately for the Goose, it didn’t end well. I’m sure you can imagine what sort of bloody aftermath was left behind after that. Continue reading

I Brought Bed Bugs Home with Me

This entry was posted in News on by .

I am pretty paranoid about staying in hotel rooms, and with good reason! I always carry disinfectant wipes with me, and I use my own bedding whenever possible. No matter what a person does though, it is still possible to bring bed bugs home with you. That is what happened to me not long ago. I was at a really nice hotel, but that didn’t stop me from bringing bed bugs home with me. When I found out, the first thing I did was contact a company that handles bed bug control in NYC.

I did not know anything about bed bugs, but they gave me a quick education. They first had to identify that it was actually bed bugs, but I was able to do that even before they came out thanks to the literature and forms they have on their website. Continue reading

I Needed to Have a Cavity Filled

This entry was posted in News on by .

I knew that I needed to see a dentist in Roseville CA when the pain in my mouth would not go away. I thought that I just had something stuck between my teeth, even though I flossed several times. When the pain persisted, I knew I should have it checked. I honestly did not think it was a cavity though because I brush my teeth at least three times a day, and sometimes even more. I meet a lot of people every day with my work, and the last thing I want is an ugly smile or bad breath.

I was out of town on business when this happened, and I honestly did not want to wait until the following week when I would be home. Continue reading

Our New Concrete Driveway is Used More Like a Backyard Patio

This entry was posted in News on by .

We have a wide and long driveway leading up to our garage that is set back from the road. It has become quite the focal point for neighbors in the summer. We have a basketball hoop set up, and the kids as well as us old guys shoot some hoops. We sit just inside the garage on folding camp chairs when we need a break from the sun, and my wife set up a patio table and umbrella for playing cards with the wives of the guys that hang out here. A concrete contractor in Nassau County, NY is the one that gave us such a nice and inviting driveway. We had it colored in a nice pattern of brick reds. It looks great and the surface is great for everything from basketball to operating remote-controlled cars. The kids can still draw on the surface using sidewalk chalk that washes off in the rain, and the little kids ride their tricycles and Big Wheels on it. The width and length of the driveway make it like the perfect giant patio for entertaining. Continue reading

Job Interview Turns into Need for DWI Lawyer

This entry was posted in News on by .

My husband had traveled to New York for an extended job interview. The manufacturing company was looking to hire a plant manager and my husband was a great fit for the job. After the formal interview, the owner of the company took my husband out for dinner and a few drinks. Jokingly, my husband’s future boss said he should keep the name of dwi lawyer in Saratoga NY handy as the plant workers liked to party after work every Friday. Little did my husband know, but he would need to find an attorney that very evening when his future boss was pulled over while driving my husband back to his hotel.

My husband said they were a couple of blocks away from his hotel when he saw the red flashing lights behind them. He tried to tell his boss that there was a police car right behind them, but he kept on driving believing he was after the car ahead of them. Continue reading

It Feels Like We Are Home Again

This entry was posted in News on by .

My husband and I both grew up in Texas but moved to New York when we were first married. That was nearly a dozen years ago, and now we are getting ready to head back to the place we have both been missing for way too long. We were contemplating between getting a house or an apartment, and we finally decided to settle in at Regency at Outlook Canyon until we could get used to the area again. This was the first time either of us had been back since we left, and we knew that things had probably changed.

I had looked at different apartments that are close to where my husband now works. The Regency complex was the nicest one of all the different apartments in the area, and it is only about a ten minute drive to his work. Continue reading
