We Are Going to Put in a Greenhouse

We have decided that we are going to put a greenhouse in, although I am not sure that you could afford to do what Emily thinks we should do. The first thing she says is that we need to get quotes on tree removal in Hendersonville NC and clear out the back part of our land. Then she wants to build a large building where she can put in a gym and her sewing machine and all of her craft things, and on top of that put up a greenhouse. Obviously that could be done and I am sure you could find someone who would be eager to do it, but it is going to be quite expensive I am sure. On the other hand I assume that you can put up a cheap greenhouse almost without any real expense. You just put up arches and cover them with the right sort of plastic. Emily did not really care about the cheap way out, she wants one of those old fashioned hot house type greenhouses and that is going to be relatively expensive.

Of course I am not going to give in easily and let her spend so much money on this, not when you can accomplish the same thing at a fraction of the price. It would just not make any sense. In fact I liked her idea for the two story thing, but with a pool table and one of those huge big screen televisions with theater seating, a kegerator and a popcorn machine. I suspect if it were pretty decent size you could do all that and still have room left over for her gym and the other stuff that she wanted to put in there. However it would cost more money than I am going to spend on that sort of thing.

Moving into a University Flat Was a Great Decision

My friend and I wanted to find a flat we could share while away at university. We were not expecting the costs to be so high, so we knew that we were going to have to find a couple of people who would share the cost with us. When she told me about some Edinburgh University flats and gave me the website to look at, I knew that we were going to end up living there, at least while we were going to school. All of the details sounded great, and the prices were definitely affordable this way too.

The kitchen has everything we will need. It has a cooker, a microwave, the refrigerator, and even a washer and dryer. There is also a dining table and all of the dishes that we would need, even if we would have company over. Going into the other common areas, there is just plenty of space and all of the furniture is already provided. There is even a chair by the telephone for when we have to make those calls that our parents insist upon! It is also very safe as it has emergency lighting, fire exits, extinguishers should there be a fire, and so much more.

What I liked most though are the private rooms. Since my friend and I were the first to apply at one of the flats, we had our choice of the four bedrooms. I knew she would want the one that had the most sun coming in, which was fine with me. The room I chose is a bit bigger, and I like the view out my window. We ended up meeting our new flat mates just a couple of weeks after we moved in, and the four of us are already the best of friends!

Beginnner’s Luck or Beginner’s Skill

When I see something that looks interesting, I don’t like to sit on the sidelines for too long. I prefer a more hands on approach that lets me get my hands dirty, no matter what the outcome happens to be. I wanted to become an investor in the stock market, so I set aside some money for my plans. Since I knew nothing about the market, I looked for tips on choosing the greatwesternminingbest AIM stocks, and learned that I would probably have a good return if I picked up some copper stocks.

Although the tips told me that the stocks would provide a nice return, I didn’t put too much hope on it. This was my first time in the market, and I didn’t expect to make a lot as beginner. Continue reading

From a Twin to a King

Last week I bought my first bed. I had been sleeping on twin beds since I was a child. My parents bought my bed for me, and it served me well because I was just a kid, but as I grew, I became too big for the bed. When I was in college, I had a twin bed in my tiny dorm room, and I hated it. It wasn’t until my junior and senior year that I moved into a dorm that had a queen sized bed, and it was infinitely better. On Sleep Matters I found a nice king sized bed that was even better than the queen sized one.

The king sized bed that I purchased was a memory foam bed. Continue reading
