I have been a huge fan of race horses since I was a kid. One of my earliest memories is actually being taken to Churchill Downs for a late night kind of race. I still don’t know what sort of racing it was but I do recall that the horses had little carriages or buggies tied to them. This is a memory that has stuck with me forever, I can’t just vaguely recall the race itself being at night and some of the people around me. I don’t recall any impressions of the race other than the importance of it being stuck with me.
Growing up in Louisville, Kentucky is kind of like that, though. For the rest of the world they see Churchill Downs as being home of the Derby with nothing in-between. It’s like everything that happens i this city is nothing but a huge lead up for the Derby and then, nothing. We live in a world that is half real and half not. Continue reading
When my wife died, it was the hardest thing I ever had to deal with. It wasn’t any easier on our 14 year old daughter, who missed her mom more than she ever thought possible. We tried staying at our house, but the memories there haunted us. We knew that we needed to find a smaller place for the two of us if we were going to begin to heal. We decided to look at luxury apartments in Lewisville TX since neither of us were interested in having a big yard or more rooms to collect dust.
I wanted my daughter to feel comfortable, so I let her be a major part of finding our new home. She is the one who found Toscana Valley Ridge, and it was amazing to watch her get excited over something for the first time in nearly 18 months, which was how long it’s been since her mother went to Heaven.

I have been dating my current girlfriend for close to three years, and I am thinking about popping the question in the near future. I am not sure if she is ready for this sort of commitment though, and that is why I am fairly nervous about doing so. I have been browsing a site, starnightlimousine.ca, for the past 10 minutes or so, but I am not really sure how long it has been, as I kind of lost track of time. I have been trying to think of ways to make the night perfect, in order to increase the odds that she will say yes to my question.
I guess that my best idea, is to take her out for a nice dinner, at a fancy dinner, and to really make it a special occasion, I would like to use a limo for the night. Continue reading
Most of the time we don’t think about our homes and how they are. We take it for granted and assume that any problem will show itself, but that’s not the way that it works unfortunately. Many problems are hidden under the surface and it takes a trained professional to figure it out. So if you are in need, look for some roof repair in Brooklyn NY. Do not outsource it to other parts of the state. Get someone from your area that knows about the area and the effect that it has on the roof. An outsider does not always know what is best for you in this area. Also do not be afraid to get a second opinion, sometimes people make mistakes and you do not want that mistake to end up costing you a ton of money. I know a lot of people out there are looking to save money, but your roof is not the place to do that, and I’ll tell you why.
The roof is probably the most important part of a home, it keeps you nice and warm while simultaneously keeping the bad weather out. Continue reading
We are interested in expansion, but we have to work through some problems with the existing buildings. At the moment I thinking that I may have to spring for some roof repair in Queens. The location there was older than the rest and it was not built precisely to the building codes it does not seem. At least the building inspector that I talked to about this subject seemed think that we could get in to real trouble with the city. Of course a little gets past those guys. Continue reading
I am the type of person who has to know everything that is going on. I watch the news both in the morning and in the evenings, plus I check it out online a few times a day too while I am working. The world is just not a safe place anymore, and I like knowing where my little town as well as the immediate world around me stands. Because I do follow the news so much, it should come as no surprise that I have an ADT home security system installed at my house.
A person cannot follow the news closely and not see that little towns are getting to be as dangerous as some of the bigger cities. Times are tough, and people who are otherwise honest are resorting to criminal activity just to take care of their own families. Continue reading

Fashion is my world. I am still pretty young, but I know that I am going to make my mark in the world one day. I have been sketching my own designs for years, and I actually started making some of my designs to wear. The proudest moment in my life came when a fashion buyer at the clothing store I work at asked me about the designer of my outfit. When I told her it was me, she was beyond impressed. She took my contact information and promised to stay in touch with me, as she wanted to make sure that I didn’t waste my talent.
She also told me to visit a fashion website that she is a huge fan of. Continue reading
