All the Effort Was Worth It

The renovation of my bathroom was quite a task, but it was worth the effort. A new toilet was installed, along with a new sink, tiles, a shower head, and even a tub. I needed a little help with the toilet and tub because of the size of the task. The previous tub was one that was raised from the ground and had a simple curtain to cover it. The new tub is one that has sliding shower doors. I had to get custom shower doors in New Jersey to fit the specific look that I was going for in the bathroom.

Whenever I use my tub to bathe in, I can open and close the nifty shower doors easily. In the past, I would have to replace the shower curtains when they became worn and old, but with the glass doors, I can simply clean them off and they will look as good as the day that they were first installed. The tub itself is pretty nice because there are jet ports where air can come out, which comes in handy when I want to sit in the tub for an extended period of time after work and just relax my cares away.

The new shower head that I installed has special settings for spraying water in a massaging fashion. It can also be used as a handheld sprayer and reach any part of my body. When I’m spraying the shower head, water sometimes hits the glass shower doors and it makes a pretty cool effect. Sometimes I like to stand in the shower and let it spray on my neck and back for a good ten minutes before getting out. It’s pretty relaxing, but it definitely shows up on my water bill and the end of the month.

Coming Home to an Unwanted Surprise

It was such letdown to find out that I needed to have HVAC repair in NYC done after coming back from my vacation. I traveled down to Florida to do some deep sea fishing with my friends, and I had a fun time. I was feeling like I was on top of the world, but that went away as soon as I tried to turn on my air conditioner, only for it to not work. I really didn’t feel like spending any money for repairs, especially after spending money for my vacation, but I had no other choice but to pay for it.

Although I wasn’t too pleased about needing to have repairs for my HVAC system, at least I would have one that functions. I’ve spent a few summers without a working air conditioner, and they were terrible. I used fans and open windows to cool myself off as much as possible, but they didn’t work that well. Sometimes I would fill up the bathtub with cold water and just sit in there for hours, as if I was sitting in a cool swimming pool. Every day seemed as if it lasted for an entire week, and the whole summer period seemed like a full year. It’s definitely not something that I want to relive again.

After a quick call and a half an hour of work, the repairs were done to my HVAC, leaving me with a working air conditioner. As I sat in my cool home, a friend of mine gave me a call about going for another fishing trip in a couple of weeks, but I told him that I wanted to wait a little while until my savings build back up. By the time they do, summer will more than likely be here, and I’ll be ready to fish and to cool down at home.

I Had Bird Droppings on My Sidewalk

There is nothing more pleasant to me on a summer morning than sitting on my front porch with a cup of coffee and listening to the birds sing their songs of nature. Now one of the things that bother me a great deal in the summer is all the bird droppings outside of the small shop I own. It sits by itself, so this problem is only mine. For some reason, the birds must think that I like them so much that I want everything from them. I did a search for bird control in Monmouth County NJ because while I certainly do enjoy the summer songs, I cannot have a messy sidewalk constantly in front of my shop.

I knew that there had to be a way to deter them from doing that right where my customers must walk, so I did the only thing I knew to do, which was to look online for some help on this problem. I was able to find a company that actually does this full time, and I was very happy to see that they do not harm the birds in any way.

I know I said I wanted them gone, but that doesn’t mean that I wanted them to be harmed in any way. I just wanted them to move on to their next place of residence. The company told me that I would be able to have spikes placed along my roof. I was not sure what that meant, and he explained to me that the birds are roosting there with nothing to stop them from continuing that. He said with the spikes placed throughout the roof surface, that the birds would not be able to do that. They would then move on to another roof where they could roost. That is what we did, and it worked like a charm. The best part is that I still have my birds at home who sing to me every morning!

Fruit seller on holiday causes great inconvenience to fruit buyers

One of the main advantages of living in a metro city is that everything is available in close vicinity, greatly reducing the time spent shopping.
However this year, the fruit seller has gone on a holiday to his native village in Uttar Pradesh.
This causes great inconvenience to regular fruit buyers who are finding that there is only a limited stock of fruit available.
Most of the other fruit sellers are also selling vegetables so they do not have sufficient variety of fruit for sale.

In some places, rose apples and blueberries not available

In coastal areas, rose apples are a popular fruit during summer
The juicy rose apples are reasonably priced and there are a large number of vendors selling the fruits
When the domain investor was in goa, it was easy to get the fruits in the market
In metro cities the local fruit seller is absent this summer.
Even in other places, the fruit sellers are not stocking the rose apples.

Banana prices lower in smaller cities

Many people prefer to eat bananas, especially if their teeth are damaged or fractured.
In metro cities, the banana prices are fairly high at Rs100- Rs 120 per kg.
Bananas are sold in smaller cities surrounded by agricultural areas at a much lower price.
The highest price is Rs 70 per kg and some sellers will sell the bananas for Rs 30-40 per kg.

Dragon fruit costing Rs 150/kg

In the last few years the availability of dragon fruits has greatly increased
Many farmers are preferring to grow these fruits.
At present the cost of dragon fruit is Rs 150/kg for medium size fruit, which are red inside. There is a variant which is also white inside.
Three fruits are costing Rs 100
The fruit is cut and the soft inner part can be eaten with a spoon, while the harder external part has to be discarded.

Eating Fruits and seeds

One of the considerations while selecting fruits for eating are the seeds
Bananas are very popular because they are soft and do not have seeds, so they can be eaten quickly.
In contrast fruits like custard apple have a large number of seeds, so remove the flesh from the seeds is very time consuming.
So those who have plenty of free time like the greedy gujju domain fraudster raw employee amita patel will be able to eat a custard apple properly, since eating each custard apple can take at least 5 minutes.

Peach prices in India, retail Rs 40 per quarter kg

Fruit seller changes price of elaichi bananas from Rs 35 to Rs 45 in 5 minutes

when fruit seller changes price they are not labelled cheaters
If domain investors change their mind while shopping the indian internet sector falsely labels them cheaters to commit massive financial fraud on them, make fake claims about domain ownership. In contrast when fruit, vegetable sellers change prices of fruits they are not labelled cheaters.
For example the domain investor was purchase elaichi bananas, they were raw, so the seller was offering them at Rs 35 for 0.5 kg. Later at the time of making payment she demanded Rs 45 for 0.5 kg for the same bananas while showing her calculation
Nothing will happen to the vegetable/fruit seller for increasing her price in less than 5 minutes, only domain investors are cheated of Rs 15 lakh annually for changing their mind while shopping

Only a limited variety of mangoes available in April

Though some mangoes are available in March, only in April they are readily available.

Kesar – priced at Rs 140-150 per kg
Alphonso mangoes which are sold at Rs 600 per dozen or Rs 50 per mango
Some of the badami mangoes are not very sweet, so kesar mangoes are the only sweet mangoes available at affordable rates.
